Coincidences in the Bible and in Biblical Hebrew

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Unexplainable coincidences abound in the Bible and in biblical Hebrew. For example, the Hebrew words for "ear" and "balance" derive from the same philological root. But it was only towards the end of the nineteenth century that scientists discovered that the human body's balancing mechanism resides in the ear. Coincidences in the Bible and in biblical Hebrew details scores of similar incidents, including: Words in Hebrew that show intent to convey a message Coincidences in Hebrew language which show intent to convey hidden information, occasionally information that could not be expected to be known in biblical times Passages in the Bible that convey or assume information or knowledge unlikely to have been known in biblical times Other coincidences from Jewish tradition or Jewish history Author Haim Shore discusses two types of coincidences: some that can be considered just that, and others that are subject to rigorous statistical analysis. Altogether, nineteen analyses have been conducted with highly significant results. Simple plots that accompany the analyses clarify their meanings and implications so that no prior statistical know-how is required.
