The Birth of Jesus and the Number 111
Over the years a large amount of scientific research has been done on every single reference related to the conception and birth of Jesus. There are approximately sixty references in the New Testament, and a handful from the Old Testament, that refer, in one form or another, to the conception, the birth, the babe in the manger, the child Jesus, etc. Virtually all of these references are saturated with multiples of 111. For sake of illustration, we are going to show only a limited number here. The mathematical odds of the following pattern being in the Bible by chance, are millions to one. It should be pointed out that the layout here is not in a scientific format, but the examples have been arranged so as to present an interesting flow to the reading.
As it was shown on a previous page, the name for Jesus in Greek has a numerical value of 888. If you cut 888 in half, it comes out to 444. If you cut 444 in half, the number is 222. And half of 222 is the number 111. This number 111 is very predominant in reference to Jesus. But it is by no means the only key number to do with Christ ~ there are many numbers that relate to all the names and attributes of Jesus and God. But the number 111, in some instances, is absolutely pervasive, especially in those references that speak concerning His conception and birth.
Let us begin with Matthews account. Here is the very first reference. The entire passage as quoted has a value of 111 x 66.
"And Jacob begat Joseph the Husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ."
Now the second reference occurs in verse 18 of this chapter where the following phrase occurs.
"Now the birth of Jesus Christ thus was: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found to be pregnant by the Holy Spirit."
THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST THUS WAS ... 111 x 49
Mat 1:18 tou Ihsouv Xristou genesiv outwv hn
"... before they came together, she was found in womb having by the Spirit Holy."
SHE WAS FOUND IN WOMB BY ... 111 x 11
eureje en gastri ek
(Note: The word "having" is not necessarily essential to the thought. Usually, the patterns are always present with words in juxtaposition or side by side. This here is a rare exception.)
Now let us look at verse 20. Here are the words of the angel that appeared to Joseph in a dream.
"But as he considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for the one, her begotten of the spirit, is holy."
HER BEGOTTEN OF THE SPIRIT, IS HOLY ... 111 x 28
Mt 1:20 auth gennhjen ek pneumatov estin agiou'
HER BEGOTTEN ... 111 x 8 (888)
(Note for Greek Scholars: The little Greek word åí, can at times be translated simply as "one" instead of "in." See Romans 12:5 in Greek, and discussion of many forms used, by A.T. Robertson, Pgs. 282 and 584-589).
Now comes verse 21. It contains many multiples of 111. Here is just one of them.
"And she will bear a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for He shall save His people from their sins."
AND SHE WILL BEAR A SON ... 111 x 11
Mat 1:21 tecetai de uion'
Two verses later, in verse 23, comes what has to be the most famous statement regarding the birth of our Lord.
BEHOLD, A VIRGIN SHALL CONCEIVE AND BEAR A SON ... 111 x 27
Mat 1:23 Idou h parjenov en gastri ecei kai tecetai uion'
Two verses later, after the birth of Jesus took place, these words appeared. The passage as quoted directly below is 111 x 34. Here is a shorter phrase (without the word Jesus) which points directly at Jesus and the number 888.
"She bore a son and called His name Jesus."
SHE BORE A SON AND CALLED HIS NAME ... 111 x 24 (888 x 3)
Mat 1:25 eteken uion kai ekalesen onoma autou
JESUS 888 (111 x 8)
Before we turn and examine the account in Luke, here is one reference from the Hebrew Old Testament that is probably one of the most famous passages in all of scripture.
"Therefore the Lord Himself shall give unto you a sign: The virgin shall be with child, and will bear a son."
The Hebrew words "to you a sign, the virgin shall be with child" have a value of 888, same as Jesus.
TO YOU A SIGN, THE VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD 888 (111 x 8)
Is 7:14 ' hrh hmlih hnh Tva Mk
Here are the most distinct words possible from the Hebrew word "and will bear a son." What is interesting to note is that the Greek words from Matthew 1:21, "And she will bear a son" has a value of 111, but in Hebrew just the one word "she will bear" has a value of 111.
SHE WILL BEAR ... 111 x 4
Here is the first reference in Luke. This entire phrase as quoted is 888 x 8.
"The power of the most high will overshadow you, and for that reason the holy offspring will be called the Son of God."
THE HOLY OFFSPRING WILL BE CALLED ... 111 x 20
|Luk 1:35 to gennwmenon agioin klhjhsetai"
An Important Comment
It should be pointed out here that throughout the phrases there are a many other numerical patterns also present, as well as the 111 pattern. All of these are working together. However, from a scientific perspective, what is significant is the fact that there usually is always one very short segment of phrase that produces at least one multiple of 111. This number appears far more often than what the laws of mathematical chance will allow. In otherwords, if theomatics was not true, we would not see this number 111 happening over and over ~ the multiples of 111 would only occur within the framework of chance expectation. But in theomatics, they occur with staggering consistency, but only on references to do specifially with the birth of Jesus (see page Scientific Proof of the Discovery).
Now here we are going to see something interesting ~ how theomatics may throw light on certain things. The next time it talks about a baby in Luke, is found in the story of Mary going to the house of Elizabeth.
"And in those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a city of Judah, and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, leaped the babe in the womb of her; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit."
LEAPED THE BABE ... 111 x 16 (888 x 2)
Lk 1:41 eskitrhsen brefov'
THE BABE IN THE WOMB ... 111 x 13
to brefov en koilia
The way the verse reads, it seems to indicate that the babe this verse was speaking of is John the Baptist (see verse 44). However, both women were pregnant at the same time. The babe that leaped could have been Jesus (notice the 888). Since John the Baptist was the forerunner of Christ, his birth may be signified by the number 111 as well. The important thing to notice here is that the number 111 is consistent through every passage to do with birth ~ just like clockwork.
In the verse that follows, Elizabeth then speaks to Mary.
"And she called out with a loud voice, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb."
THE FRUIT OF THY WOMB ... 111 x 14
Lk 1:42 o karpov koiliav sou"
Here is the rest of what Elizabeth says. In this verse the unborn baby Jesus is called "the Lord."
"And why is this granted to me, that the mother of the Lord of me should come to me?"
THE LORD ... 111 x 9
Lk 1:43 kuriou'
Now we jump to chapter 2 where it again talks about the birth of Jesus. In the nativity story, Joseph travels from Galilee to Bethlehem, with Mary.
"And while they were there, were fulfilled the days for her to bear."
The words "were fulfilled the days for her to bear," actually read in Greek as "were fulfilled the days to bear her."
THE DAYS TO BEAR ... 111 x 5
Lk 2:6 hmerai tekein'
The next verse states that Mary bore her firstborn son.
SHE BORE THE SON THE FIRSTBORN ... 111 x 25
Lk 2:7 eteken uion prwtotokon
Right now I am going to quickly skip to the book of Hebrews, which is a perfect parallel to the above verse in Luke.
"And again, when He brings the firstborn into the world, He says, Let all the angels of God worship Him."
THE FIRSTBORN INTO THE WORLD ... 111 x 29
Heb 1:6 ton prwtotokon eiv oikoumenhn'
The account in Luke continues with a discussion of the angels appearing to the shepherds.
"And this shall be to you a sign. Ye will find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger."
The words "Ye will find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger," has a value of ... 111 x 41. Here is the most distinct portion. The following English phrase consists of only two Greek words.
THE BABE WRAPPED IN SWADDLING CLOTHES ... 111 x 21
Lk 2:12 brefov esparganwmenon'
And here now is verse 16. Here is what happened.
"When the angels went away from them into heaven into heaven, the shepherds said to one another. Let us go unto Bethelem and see this thing having happened which the Lord made known to us. And they came with haste and found both Mary and Joseph and the babe lying in the manger."
AND THE BABE LYING IN THE MANGER ... 111 x 22
Lk 2:16 kai to brefov keimenon en fathn
Now look at the following feature. After all the above comes this.
"And when they saw it they made known the saying which had been told them concerning this child."
THIS CHILD ... 111 x 26
Lk 2:17 tou paidiou toutou'
The next reference to the child is down in verse 21. Notice the multiple of 888. The text states that He was circumcised on the eighth day. There is a whole structure in theomatics to do with circumcision ~ all based on a pattern of eights.
"And when were completed eight days to circumcise him."
EIGHT DAYS TO CIRCUMCISE HIM ... 111 x 32 (888 x 4)
Lk 2:21 hmerai oktw tou peritemein auton"
And the text states that after He was circumcised on the eighth day, His name was called Jesus, which also, of course, has a value of 888.
"And when were completed eight days to circumcise him, His name was called Jesus, the name called by the angel before he was conceived in the womb."
The above is literally saturated with multiples of 111. Here is the shortest phrase.
JESUS, THE NAME CALLED BY THE ANGEL ... 111 x 22
Ihsouv to klhjen upo aggelou
THE NAME CALLED BY THE ANGEL ... 111 x 14
To klhjen upo aggelou
The above verse says that His name was called Jesus "before he was conceived in the womb." Look at just the following.
BEFORE HE WAS CONCEIVED IN THE WOMB ... 111 x 23
pro sullhmfjhnai auton en koilia
HE WAS CONCEIVED ... 111 x 19
And of course as we saw earlier from Matthew, in relation to Jesus being conceived in the womb, the words "the fruit of thy womb" was also 111, and so were the words "the babe in the womb."
Now let us jump to a reference in Luke chapter 11. In this passage we read how Jesus was casting out demons, and a woman from the crowd of bystanders cried out the following words.
"And it came to pass as He spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee and the paps which thou hast sucked."
BLESSED IS THE WOMB THAT BARE THEE ... 111 x 13
Lk 11:27 makaria h koilia h bastasasa se"
BARE THEE ... 111 x 10
Now right after the above verse that we looked at in Luke, the next words appear.
"And when were completed their days of cleansing according to the law of Moses, they took Him to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord."
TO PRESENT HIM TO THE LORD ... 111 x 30
Lk 2:22 parasthsai tw kuriw'
Now here in this passage comes the next reference to Jesus, where He is explicitly called "the Christ of the Lord."
"Now there was a man in Jerusalem named Simeon ... And it had been revealed to Him by the Holy Spirit that He should not see death before He should see the Christ of the Lord."
THE CHRIST OF THE LORD ... 111 x 21
Luk 2:26 Xriston kuriou'
THE CHRIST ... 111 x 12
Simeon then took the baby Jesus in his arms, and said the following. Here Jesus is called "thy salvation."
"For mine eyes have seen thy salvation which thou didst prepare before the face of all peoples."
THY SALVATION WHICH THOU DIDST PREPARE ... 111 x 28
Lk 2:31 swthrion sou o htoimasav
But Simeon continued to prophecy over the baby Jesus. The following ten words are only 5 words in Greek.
"And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel."
THIS CHILD IS SET FOR THE FALL AND RISING AGAIN ... 111 x 35
Lk 2:34 outov keitai eiv ptwsin kai anastasin
In light of all that we have seen thus far, the next result is almost unbelievable. No result could be more direct and impressive than the following.
"And he came by the spirit into the temple, as the parents brought in the Child Jesus, to do for him according to the custom of the law."
THE CHILD JESUS ... 111 x 12
Lk 2:27 to paidion Ihsoun'
Right now I am going to quickly skip to the book of Acts. Compare the next example with the above.
"And signs and wonders are performed through the name of the holy child of thee Jesus."
NAME OF THE HOLY CHILD JESUS ... 111 x 28
Ac 4:30 onomatov tou agiou paidov Ihsou
In this account of Luke chapter 2, which continues on through many verses, there are a whole host of short explicit phrases, all in reference to the child Jesus, that are multiples of 111. I am going to skip over all of these and move on to the last verse in this story, which is verse 40.
"And the child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom."
THE CHILD GREW AND BECAME STRONG ... 111 x 19
Lk 2:40 paidion hucanen kai ekrataiouto"
Now we are going to return to Matthews Gospel, this time to the second chapter.
"Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the King, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, where is the one born king of the Jews."
IS THE ONE BORN KING OF JEWS ... 111 x 46
Mt 2:2 estin o texjeiv basileuv twn Ioudaiwn'
"For we saw His star in the East, and have come to worship Him."
HIS STAR ... 111 x 16 (888 x 2)
The account goes on concerning wicked king Herod. He gathered together all the chief priests and scribes to inquire of them where the Christ was to be born.
"They told him, In Bethlehem of Judea; for so it is written by the prophet: And thou, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means the least among the rulers of Judah; for out of thee shall come a governor, that shall rule my people Israel."
OUT OF THEE SHALL COME A GOVERNOR ... 111 x 24 (888 x 3)
Mt 2:6 ek sou eceleusetai hgoumenov"
Herod then sent the wise men away with strict instructions.
"And he sent them to Bethlehem, saying, Go and search diligently for the child."
SEARCH DILIGENTLY FOR THE CHILD ... 111 x 32 (888 x 4)
Mt 2:8 akribwv peri tou peidiou"
"And behold the star, which they saw in the East, went before them until it came and stood over where the child was."
IT CAME AND STOOD OVER WHERE THE CHILD WAS ... 111 x 28
Mt 2:9 eljwn estajh epanw ou hn to paidion"
The account continues with the wise men offering their gifts to the child.
"And coming into the house they saw the child with Mary His mother."
SAW THE CHILD ... 111 x 11
(mt) Mt 2:11 euron to paidion'
Now at this point in the story Joseph has a dream.
"Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, Rise, take thou the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt."
TAKE THOU THE CHILD ... 111 x 4
Mat 2:13 paralabe paidion'
A number of years after Joseph and Mary and Jesus had fled into Egypt, the angel again appeared to Joseph.
"But when Herod died, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, saying, Rise, take thou the child and his mother, and go to the land of Israel, for have died those who seek the life of the child."
THE LIFE OF THE CHILD ... 111 x 21
Mat 2:20 fuxhn paidiou"
In the book of Galatians, there appears a very well known passage to the birth of Jesus.
"And when the fulness of time had come, God sent forth his son, becoming of a woman, becoming under the law."
SENT FORTH HIS SON BECOMING OF A WOMAN ... 111 x 43
(mt) Gal 4:4 ecapesteilen ton uion autou gennwmenon ek gunaikov'
We shall conclude this presentation with three features from the book of Revelation that are absolutely mind-boggling. Three specific references to the child Jesus, short explicit phrases, all multiples of 111. This will put the icing on the cake.
Revelation 12 is the chapter that talks about the woman who gave birth to the man child, who is obviously Jesus. Let us look at those specific passages.
The following will show the logic of how this 111 pattern is embedded in the various thought segments of each passage.
"A great sign was seen in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun
She was pregnant and she cried out being distressed to give birth. "
BEING DISTRESSED ... 111 x 4
Rev 12:2 basanizomenh
"And the dragon stood before the woman about to bear, that whenever she bears the child of her, he might devour it."
THAT WHENEVER SHE BEARS THE CHILD OF HER ... 111 x 20
Rev 12:4 ina otan tekh teknon authv'
SHE BEARS ... 111 x 3
THE CHILD OF HER ... 111 x 16 (888 x 2)
to teknon authv"
"And she brought forth the man child, who is to rule all nations with a rod of Iron."
THE MAN CHILD ... 111 x 8 (888)
Rev 12:5 uion arsen"
Both the expression "the child of her" and "the man child" are multiples of 888~the same as Jesus. Finally, the last reference to Jesus appears down in verse 13. Here the multiple is of 7, the number of perfection.
"And when the dragon saw that he was cast to earth, he pursued the woman who bore the male."
THE MALE ... 111 x 7
Rev 12:13 ton arsena'
Now for our last example, we will turn to the book of Genesis. The male child that the woman gave birth to, is the fulfilment of a prophecy given in the book of Genesis. Here is what Jehovah said to the serpent in the garden of Eden.
"And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and between her seed; he will crush thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel" (Gen. 3:14, 15).
The following four words in Hebrew are continuous without any punctuation or break in thought. The thought here is complete. "
and between thy seed and between her seed he will crush thy head." The numerical value here is the same as "the male" in Revelation.
AND BETWEEN HER SEED HE WILL CRUSH ... 111 x 7
