Strong's last numbered words for the Bible are:
New Testament = 5624 G
Old Testament = 8674 H
the gematria value for Jesus Christ = 888 + 1480 = 2368
5624 = 2368 + 888 + 2368
(all divisible by 37, as is 2701 Genesis 1:1)
8674 = (2368 x 3) + 1570 !
we know that base conversions show that Jesus is directly tied to the 1570 number.
888 decimal = 1570 octal
going to this link on Richard McGough's awesome Bible Wheel site:
shows a pattern that I see all the time.
note that the gematria totals for 1570 are divided into two groups.
only New Testament words have a value of 1570.
only Old Testament verses have a total of 1570.
this seems to be one way the Lord has organized the Word, and it's gematria values.
at this point I wish I could say I understood more than that, but I do not.
