The Star of David is a generally recognized symbol of Judaism and Jewish identity. It is also known colloquially as the Jewish Star. Shema Yisrael (or just Shema) are the first two words of Deu 6:4 that is used as a centerpiece of all morning and evening Jewish prayer services and is considered the

most important prayerin Judaism.This may come as a shock but the Star of David is the symbolic equivalent of the Shema! The Hebrew gematria of the Shema -- 1118, is encoded many times over in the six-pointed star. The incontrovertible evidences that will be presented in this article show two indisputable facts: 1) The Star of David is the Star of YHVH. 2) The Star of David is the Shema Star.

These two facts attest to the authenticity of the Star of David and provide compelling insights on the Trinity.

The Star of YHVHThe first fact is indubitable. To prove this fact, take a star figure formed by 13 circles (first non-degenerate star). Arrange the numbered circles as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1: The Star of DavidThere exists 6.2 billion (factorial 13=13!=1x2x3x4x5x6x7x8x9x10x11x12x13) ways of arranging the 13 circles on the star. However,

only onearrangement gives rise to this phenomenon -- the name YHVH manifests supernaturally as 18 geometric shapes on the star! (Figure 2) The sum of each geometric shape is 26 -- the gematria of the holy personal name of God, YHVH.

Figure 2: The Star of YHVH

The six V-shaped figures apparently escaped Bill Bullen, the discoverer of the above phenomenon. The inclusion of these six V-shaped figures increases the weight of evidence considerably. Examine the two interlocking triangles that form the Star of David. Each triangle is a stunning confirmation of YHVH!

Figure 3Each interlocking triangle of the Star of David conceals 8 YHVH codes (26) -- distinctly divided into 2+6 codes (an overarching YHVH code) as shown in Figure 3. For each interlocking triangle, four instances of it produce 8 YHVH codes. When the combined eight instances of the two interlocking triangles are considered, another YHVH (2+6) pattern emerges (Figure 4 below).

Figure 4Even mathematicians recognize, albeit unknowingly, the fingerprint of YHVH on the Star of David. By definition, a star polygon {p/q}, with p,q positive integers, is a figure formed by connecting with straight lines every qth point out of p regularly spaced points lying on a circumference. The Star of David is designated {6/2}, sharing the same digits as the gematria of YHVH, 26!

Is it coincidence too that the unique arrangement of 13 numbers on the Star of David that gave rise to the explosion of YHVH codes is one out of 6.2 billion possible arrangements, with 6.2 billions sharing the same digits as the gematria of YHVH, 26!?

Yet there is more.

The three overarching YHVH designs in Figure 4 are derived from the two triangles of the Star of David in the non-interlocked state. Amazingly three more overarching YHVH designs are discernible when the two triangles interlock to form the Star of David (Figure 5).

Figure 5Four categories with a total of 16 geometric shapes are generated as a result of the interlocking -- 3 rhombi, 6 small triangles, 6 intersection points (circles) and 1 star, as shown in Figure 5 above. These geometric shapes could not be generated and hence were absent in the two big triangles in their non-interlocked state.

A few remarkable parallels may be noted between the non-interlocked and interlocked groups (Figures 4 & 5).

Table 1: Parallels between the Non-interlocked & Interlocked Groups

The fingerprint of YHVH on the Star of David is beyond doubt. But here's the clincher: There are EXACTLY 26 twenty-sixes! This is tantamount to YHVH (26) stamping His seal of approval on the Star of David with a 26-fold divine emphasis. The 26 twenty-sixes are arrived at by summing the total of the eight categories in Table 1 (

2+2+6+6+3+4+1+3=27) and minus 1 since the hexagon is counted twice.Is the above design a figment of human imagination or of supernatural origin? Consider another marvel: It takes EXACTLY 26 strokes to draw the eight geometric shapes whose total is 26x26! The breakdown of these 26 strokes are as follows: Hexagon(6), big triangles(3), line(1), V-shaped figure(2), rhombus(4), small triangle(3), point or circle(1) and star(6).

There is no question that the design is perfect. Only God could have done it. The 26 strokes correspond to the 26 twenty-sixes not just in

sum, but also theconstituent numbersof the sum!

The Eight Geometric FiguresThese figures testisfy to YHVH (26) again and again in surprising ways. Whichever way you slice them you come face to face with the enigmatic number 26. The two sets illustrated in Table 2 are

perfectexamples of how the number 26 is encoded in the eight geometric figures. Both sets contain the same constituent numbers (2, 4, 1, 1, 3, 3, 6, 6). Both sets sum to 26 (the latter refers to 26x26). The constituent numbers are divided into 2+6 numbers -- a distinct pair (D) of numbers {2, 4} and three pairs of repeated (R) numbers {1, 1, 3, 3, 6, 6}.Surely the confluence of the number 26 is not by chance. The EXACT match alone between the two sets of constituent numbers is near humanly impossible to design. Not to mention the one special number arrangement out of the staggering 6.2 billion possible arrangements on the Star of David that gave rise to the YHVH phenomenon.

Incredibly, six more YHVH designs of the 2+6 variety are hidden in the eight geometric figures, bringing the total to eight. True to form, overarching YHVH patterns (2+6) may be further extracted from the octet. But first the octet in Table 3.

Table 3Table 3 is jam-packed with the YHVH (2+6) motifs! The key to the 2+6 division is the notion of distinct (D) and repeated (R) pairs. Six rows in Table 3 are clearly divided into either 1D3R or 1R3D. The two exceptional rows are divided into 1D1D2R and 1D1R2D. The latter two divisions are not arbitrary as in each case there is a basis for the 2+6 pattern -- fraction(2) vs integer(6) and open(2) vs closed(6) figures.

One does not have to be a rocket scientist to see that the YHVH patterns in Table 3 appear to be

nested, i.e. patterns exist within patterns. In fact, another octet (Table 4) may be extracted from the tabulated octet of Table 3.

Table 4

Even a cursory look at Table 4 suggests that the nestedness of the YHVH (2+6) patterns may not stop there. One suspects it may not be entirely impossible to find, if one digs deeper, a grand octet derivable from the octet of octets in Table 4 since infinite wisdom is behind the phenomenon. However, as time and space do not permit further investigation, we will return to Table 3 for a closer look instead.Incredibly as it may sound, having found the plethora of codes thus far, more YHVH (2+6) patterns can be discovered hidden in the

overall attributesof Table 3! Examine all the distinct (D) and repeated (R) pairs. Under the 'Set of 2' column, there are TWO unique items -- 1R and 1D. Under the 'Set of 6' column, there are SIX unique items -- 1R, 2R, 3R, 1D, 2D and 3D. Thus, a perfect TWO-SIX pattern is found under the TWO-SIX columns. Note the completeness of each group: (1+2+3) Rs and (1+2+3) Ds -- which point to yet another TWO SIXES (6=1+2+3, 6=1+2+3)!Next, examine the number of occurrence of each geometric figure (Table 5). Each figure occurs a total of 8 times -- once in each of the eight rows of Table 3.

Geometric FigureFrequency

Table 5The first odd thing to note is that of all the

frequencydigits 0 - 8, only the digits 2 and 6 are missing from Table 5! A not-so-subtle hint at YHVH (26), perhaps? Consider another oddity: The eight frequency digits may be grouped as 2+6 digits -- {4, 4}{0, 1, 3, 5, 7, 8} -- thus concealing another YHVH code.Add the eight frequency digits as four 2-digit numbers and be pleasantly surprised by the sum: 17+35+44+08 = 26 + 26 + 26 + 26! In other words, the 'frequency count' average is 26 per geometric figure!

The average frequency of 26 leads to the discovery of an extremely fascinating table.

00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 20 21 22 23 24 2526 27 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 40 41 42 43 44 45 50 51 52 53 54 60 61 62 63 70 71 72 80 81 90

Table 6The highlighted column in Table 6 consists of the frequency digits (1, 7, 3, 5, 4, 4, 0, 8) of Table 5, plus the missing YHVH digits (2, 6). Observe that each of the numbers 26 & 62 divides the highlighted column into 2+6 numbers!

Coincidentally, the number 26 is also the 26th number in the table, counted horizontally from the top (26th=10+9+7). The numbers in the third row of Table 6 are unique in that the value of each number is equal to its placeholder, e.g. 26 = 26th.Table 6, when viewed as an equilateral triangle (Figure 6), reveals a YHVH octet not unlike that which was unraveled from the Star of David!

Figure 6The equilateral triangle is symmetric about the vertical axis. Each row of digits, when strung together, forms a palindrome. The most interesting feature is the positions of both the numbers 26 and 62. Figure 7 shows the 4 YHVH codes (26th, 2+6, 2+6, 2+6) generated by the number 26 due to its strategic position. Likewise, the number 62 also generates 4 identical corresponding YHVH codes since the equilateral triangle is symmetric.

Figure 7

Thus, an octet of YHVH codes is hidden in the numbers 26 and 62 (Table 8).

Table 8

All of a sudden, it is the same spooky YHVH phenomenon all over again! As before, overarching YHVH (2+6) patterns appear to be nested within the YHVH patterns of Table 8. Indeed, it does not take much effort to find an octet of octets of YHVH codes (Table 9).

Table 9

One is tempted to look for a grand octet of 'octet of octets' latent in Table 9, however, we will resist going deeper as there is sufficient intrigue to engage the mind at the more fundamental levels. Examine the equilateral triangle of Figure 6. It is neither arbitrary nor contrived to fit the YHVH phenomenon. It is a set of numbers in its own right.All numbers in the number space are composed of these ten basic digits: 0 - 9. The equilateral triangle of 55 numbers is formed by using these ten basic digits as seed numbers to generate all possible 2-digit combinations. For example, the digit 6 spawns six 2-digit numbers: 15, 24, 33, 42, 51, 60. The digital root of each number in the set is 6, e.g. 1+5=6, 2+4=6 etc.

Notwithstanding the amazing YHVH encodings in the equilateral triangle, there exists one more profound secret that speaks in favour of the YHVH phenomenon. The position of the number 26 (Figure 6) may be counted in four ways horizontally -- 43rd (from top & left), 39th (from top & right), 17th (from bottom & left) and 13th (from bottom & right). The sum of these four numbers is 112 -- the Hebrew gematria of YHVH Elohim (26+86) -- the Lord God!

It turns out all the 55 numbers of the equilateral triangle possess this unique property! In fact, the mysterious sum of 112 may be arrived at in three ways for

each number! (Table 10)

Table 10The sum 112 occurs a total of 165 times (55x3) for the 55 numbers. The ubiquity and universality of 112 in the equilateral triangle gives the secret away that YHVH Elohim (gematria 112) must have been the Mathematician behind the YHVH phenomenon in the equilateral triangle, which may now be aptly called the YHVH Elohim Triangle.

The YHVH Elohim Triangle will prove to be even more intriguing when the Shema theme is examined in the Star of David. (

Hint: Look for these numbers: 43, 26, 17, 86, 112)

The Shema StarThere is no question that the holy personal name of God, YHVH, is solidly encoded in the Star of David. Indeed, one wonders if the Star of David would be more appropriately renamed as the Star of YHVH.

Be prepared to be astounded in the sequel to this article when we consider the Shema theme in the Star of David. It is an awesome testimony to the Triune God, the Almighty, the El Shaddai, the Everlasting Father of Lights (James 1:17), Who is One Lord, yet Three Persons in the Trinity.

To God be the glory!
