“The God Code” – Documentary

Just watching this now – it is available ONLY until the 14th of April.  I’m watching through Direct TV, but there are other options.

The God Code – History Channel

 

ABOUT

Behind locked doors in St. Petersburg, Russia is the Leningrad Codex, the world’s oldest complete text of the Hebrew Bible. Because of its ancient origins, it is a purer version of the Bible–containing words and characters lost in later translations. Timothy Smith, an antiquities expert, believes he’s found an intricate code hidden within its text, one that may not show up in later translations. This two-hour special takes viewers on a journey across the globe to find out if the hidden code is real. If it is, could this be the actual word of God? A code written into his own divine work. A master plan for history? The code is said to point to a diverse variety of historical events from the rise of Hitler to the threat of North Korea and it may even point to the location of one of the greatest treasures of all, the lost Arc of the Covenant.

  1. I can tell you right now there’s no secret code. God did predict Hitler and North Korea, because all humans are wicked. If people are searching for the secret to life in the Bible, may I humbly suggest Ecclesiastes?
    “This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given them—for this is their lot. Moreover, when God gives someone wealth and possessions, and the ability to enjoy them, to accept their lot and be happy in their toil—this is a gift of God.” (Ecc 5:18-19)
    Otherwise, we’re warned about this behavior:
    “[command them not to] devote themselves to myths and
    endless genealogies. Such things promote controversial speculations rather than advancing God’s work—which is by faith.” (1 Tim 1:4)

      1. Hi James,

        Thank you for taking the time to respond. If by “well documented” you mean that one guy wrote a loosely-scientific book on the topic, I would have to agree that Googling the terms you suggested was productive. That sounds more dismissive than I intend, but given that the second result on Google was an article explaining why academics aren’t wooed by his writing, please excuse my skepticism.

        I do believe, however, that a more traditional literary analysis may be of some insight. My use of texts above may not have been the best interpretation of those passages, but the point stands, and can also be seen in Matthew 23, that the purpose and use of Scripture is not in the details. While I haven’t taken the time to do an in-depth study on the topic, I cannot think of a time in the Bible where God disguised the message He intended for us to receive. Instead, we have the physical incarnation of God and his messengers throughout the Old and New Testaments, culminating in the incarnation of Christ, and following his departure, the arrival of the Holy Spirit to inhabit, inform, and empower disciples of Christ.

        With this short analysis established, may I suggest an alternative list of prognostications?

        1) Man is desperately wicked, and we should unsurprised at the depths of this wickedness
        2) God will complete his work of redemption through the disciple-making efforts of believers filled with the Word and the Spirit

        Peace,
        Nathan
