(719) 268-1935 Breakthrough Discoveries in Ancient Hebrew Bible Offers Startling Revelations
For generations, the Hebrew Bible has been revered as the holy and sacred Word of God. As the scriptural foundation of both the Jewish and Christian faiths, it is the most influential text in Western civilization. But is there more to the Bible than meets the eye? Does technology allow for new messages from God to be discerned today?
Timothy P. Smith, a Virginia-based appraiser and conservator of artifacts and antiquities, believes he has discovered a code encrypted in the ancient Hebrew text that unequivocally provides proof of the Bible’s divine authorship. In what reads like an adventure novel, Smith shares his startling findings in The Chamberlain Key: Unlocking the God Code to Reveal Divine Messages Hidden in the Bible
(April 4, 2017, WaterBrook).
“I want people to look at the Bible with a new found lens,” says Smith. “The Bible is a treasure that has been cherished and protected by people around the world for thousands of years and now this text is revealing new messages for our generation.”
In The Chamberlain Key
readers will join Smith on a page-turning journey that takes them from Virginia to the remote Rockies of British Columbia to Southern Spain and the site of the Rocio Madonna. Part code-cracker and part historical sleuth, Smith tells his highly personal and up-until-now private story of faith, adventure and discovery that not only holds personal but potentially historical and religious implications. The Chamberlain Key
presents empirical evidence that the oldest Hebrew biblical texts are vastly more multifaceted and extraordinary than previously understood. When researching a mystery about his family heritage, Smith was drawn to Genesis 30:20-24. There, using an equidistant letter skip decryption method, he discovered not only his own name but also biographical information of other family members. The statistical odds of this are beyond mathematical calculation, and it was just the tip of the iceberg.
Smith examined further this short passage in Genesis and found detailed information on Jesus, including his virgin birth, his crucifixion and resurrection—in a text believed to have been written between 1300-900 BC, centuries before Christ’s birth. Using this process, which he refers to as The Chamberlain Key because through it he has been able—much like the chamberlains of old—to unlock doors that have been locked for centuries, Smith has come across such findings as:
· Evidence that the words and letters of the Hebrew Bible are not only carefully preserved but precisely arranged by God
· Clues to the location of the contents of the Ark of the Covenant
· References to revered religious images, such as the Rocio Madonna
· Warnings of spreading anti-Semitism, hatred and violence
Smith has had his research methodology and conclusions reviewed by scientists and scholars such as Dr. Robert Jahn, dean emeritus of engineering at Princeton University and Dr. Eugene Ulrich, chief editor of the Biblical Dead Sea Scrolls
and professor of Hebrew Scripture and Theology at University of Notre Dame.
In the book’s foreword Ulrich writes, “However one wishes to interpret the meaning and significance of the text, they may rest assured that the text on which Timothy Smith based his interpretations has almost certainly been there for a very long time, since before the birth of Christ.”
“My hope in publishing this book is not to provoke unwarranted fear or, certainly, to imply I have all the answers,” says Smith, “but instead to invite investigation and consideration—to encourage others to take a closer look not only at the ancient Hebrew Scriptures…but also New Testament writings that appear to be interwoven with the Hebrew text in ways barely imagined before now.”
Smith adds, “I hope these pages will end up doing for you what this journey of discovery has done for me: Deepen and broaden your appreciation of the Bible as the Word of God. It is a multi-layered, multi-faceted, multi-textured revelation of God and his ways,” adds Smith.
For Smith the adventure continues as he is now joined by a major cable network in production of a documentary series to capture his globetrotting journey to unlock previously undiscovered secrets from the Bible.
