There were three main alpha/numeric systems in use at the
time when the New Testament was being written - Hebrew, Latin
(Roman Numerals), and Greek. Until about the year 80 CE, the
Greek system consisted of only an old initial system. Arrius
Piso (Josephus) developed a 'new' Greek system and incorporated
it into the New Testament.
For the sake of definition, we will call these three main Piso Number
systems simply the 'Alpha/Numeric' system (meaning that this is
one system incorporating three different main languages and their
Flavius Josephus (aka Arrius Piso) hints at the use of what he calls
"triangular numbers". He is also the 'mathematician' circa 100 CE
called 'Nicomachus'. This 'Nicomachus of Garasa' was Josephus/Arrius
Piso, because 'Nico' is 'Victor' or 'Winner', and 'Machus' means
'of the battle' ( of Garasa ).
Reading Josephus, one finds that Josephus was a Roman General at
the battle of Garasa in 66 CE So, Josephus was 'Nicomachus' ( the
victor of the battle ) of Garasa. Also, in 'history', Josephus is the first
person to mention Garasa.
These numbers and their meanings are preserved for us in
many of the books of the day, all one must do is look. In this main
number system some of these numbers are what we term "main numbers"
(which we call 'primary' or 'prime' numbers for short). While others are
what we call "combined numbers". There are some numbers that served
as both. We will help you to understand the difference between these
two types by explaining why it is that we define them differently, and
also why the two types exist.
At present, there are 50 numbers in the main number system that we
have defined (not counting the "checking number/s" or "proof" number/s
for '666'). We do not know if more will be found, but this has been a
monumental task. We know that much more work will be done on this
in the future. Of these 50 numbers, 27 are what we term 'prime' numbers.
And there are 17 that have been found to be what we call 'combined'
numbers. We have also found 6 numbers that act as both 'prime' and
'combined' numbers. Again, this may change someday when more work
is done on this subject. But the very fact that these numbers exist in this
way says that this was something that was deliberately done and it also
demonstrates a purpose behind it. There is also a set of numbers that are
what we call "small prime numbers", but those are not included in this
main system as they act differently than these do and so constitute
another different system (which we call the "Small Prime Number
System"). Please read our "Concluding Notes" at the end of this article.
Bear in mind that there were other number systems in addition to
these three main ones which are based on the Greek, Latin (Roman),
and Hebrew languages. And that this is merely an article that was
written for the express purpose of edifying the public to this. The
greater details of this and other things related to the subject of the
Roman Piso family authoring the New Testament can be found in
In this article, we will not give ALL of the numbers or all of the
meanings of those numbers, but instead, just a few of those so that
persons may get an idea of what these numbers meant and what the
usage of these were. We are especially proud to be able to bring you
the full true meaning of '666', which, you WILL find listed here.
Please share this information about the true meaning of '666' with
as many others as you can. They do deserve to know about it.
8 - Small 80, 'P' ( in Greek ) for 'Piso'. Also, 'H' as acrostic initial for
'Horus'. '8' is 'H', but why 'H'? Unless 'H' stands for another name
after 'J' for 'Jesus'. That would seem to be 'Horus' when we consider
the comparison of 'Jesus' to 'Horus'. However, even more likely, in the
passage where this is referenced if one goes to the alpha/numeric chart
they will see that '8' is also 'P' (the acrostic initial for 'Piso'). That is
really what '8' stood for. Ref. The apocryphal book of 'Barnabas',
Chap. VIII, Verse 12. (See 'Lost Books of the Bible', pg. 154, published
by Bell Publishing Co., NY, NY).
10 - Was 'I' ('J') for 'Jesus' in initial system, or 'K' for 'Kalpournios' in the
sequence system. Ref. The apocryphal book of 'Barnabas', Chap. VIII,
Verse 12. (See 'Lost Books of the Bible', pg. 154, published by Bell
Publishing Co., NY, NY).
18 - In the Apocryphal book 'Barnabas' 18:12, '18' is 10 & 8 ('Jesus/Piso'!).
18 is also the Pythagorean 666 (6+6+6=18). Ref. The apocryphal book of
'Barnabas', Chap. VIII, Verse 12. (See 'Lost Books of the Bible', pg. 154,
published by Bell Publishing Co., NY, NY).
27 - 'Pliny' ('Plinios'), in Greek small numbers, honoring 'Pliny the Younger'.
Ref. 'The True Authorship of the New Testament', Abelard Reuchlin, pg. 8.
30 - 'Jesus/Flavius' by sequence system, and the total of the name 'Flavius
in Greek small numbers. Ref. 'The True Authorship of the New Testament',
Abelard Reuchlin, pg. 8.
36 - The number total of the original spelling of 'Josephus' as 'Josepos' in
Greek as demonstrated various times throughout the works of Flavius
Josephus (Ref. 'Josephus', Jewish War, Book V, Chap. XIII, Verse III.
Loeb Classical Library Edition), in Greek small numbers. See 'Footnotes'
below. Ref. 'The True Authorship of the New Testament', Abelard Reuchlin,
66 - The 'Xi' and 'Bau' of the 'Chi', 'Xi', 'Bau' from 666. 'Flavius Josepos'
(Flaouios Iosepos), which is 30 + 36 (sm. num). Ref. 'The True Authorship
of the New Testament', Abelard Reuchlin, pg. 9.
99 - Honor to Pliny the Younger as the total of his full name;
'Gaios Kaikilios Sekoundos Plinious', in Greek small numbers. In
the New Testament, the word 'Amen' was used to honor Pliny the
Younger, because it too totaled 99. What Christian knows that they
honor Pliny the Younger every time they use the word 'Amen'? None.
But we do. Ref. 'The True Authorship of the New Testament',
Abelard Reuchlin, pg. 9.
100 - 'K.P.' by Greek initial system. Also 'C' for 'Calpurnius' in Latin
initial system. Ref. 'The True Authorship of the New Testament', Abelard
Reuchlin, pg. 10. Ref. Suetonius, 'The Twelve Caesars', pg. 104 (under
'Augustus'); "...the (acrostic) initial letter of his name..." and also, "...
"C" being the Roman numeral (for) 100." (keyed to the Penguin Classics
edition, Penguin Books).
300 - Stood for 'T', which represented the cross. Ref. 'The General Epistle
of Barnabas', (the Apocryphal New Testament), Chap. VIII, Verses 10-14.
600 - The 'X' or 'Chi' (Kai) of 'Chi', 'Xi', 'Bau' (600, 60, 6). 600 is the
numerical value of the initial 'X' which is 'Ch' in English and stands for
'Christ'. It is the first letter of the name 'Christ' in Greek, and therefore
is an acrostic initial for 'Christ'. Ref. 'The True Authorship of the New
Testament', Abelard Reuchlin, pg. 10.
616 - When the Church was deciding whether or not to continue to
include 'Revelations' into the Christian canon (because of 666,
its checking number, and other allusions), they opted to try to
change 666 to 616 in the manuscripts so as to throw off the
checking system and yet still honor Christ/Piso (600 = 'Christ',
16 = 'Piso'). See 'Council of Nicaea in Bithynia (c. 325 CE). Ref. 'The
True Authorship of the New Testament', Abelard Reuchlin, pg. 10.
666 - When Julius Piso wrote 'The Revelation' and gave the number 666,
( He was pointing to his dad, who uses 666 once in his writings as
'Josephus' ), he put in a "checking number" ("proof number") that would
be the total of the names 'Jesus' & 'Christ'. This is how he did it. He made
the total of the entire last phrase of Rev. 13:18 add up to the "checking
number", which was 2,368. Because we feel that this is of the utmost
importance for everyone to know, we will also quote from Reuchlin's
booklet so that you will have the rest of the confirming information about
this to work with (towards the end of this explanation of the meaning of
The total of the checking number was from the Greek initial
system, and so was the entire last phrase of Rev. 13:18, except
for ... 666! Because it was not only a part of the total, but
also a separate number unto itself. 666 wasn't written out as it
could have been written, in the form of words like '144,000'
was; as "Six Hundred, Sixty-Six".
No, it was written in the form of three letters with numerical
values! Those letters are, 'Chi', 'Xi', 'Bau'. 'Chi' stands for
'Christ' and has a numerical value of 600. The other part of 666
was 'Xi' and 'Bau'. This was 66 in small numbers. 66 was the
total of the name 'Flavius Josephus' (Josepos) in small numbers.
(See the Footnotes at the end of the article for examples of where
'Josephus' is spelled 'Josepos')
What 666 is, is "Christ/Flavius Josephus" or "Christ (Jesus)
'was' Flavius Josephus!" Arrius Piso himself, writing as
Josephus, uses the number 666 to denote himself when saying how
'gold' was given to King Solomon. He says; '666' talents of
'gold'. "'Gold" meaning "Flavius" (Ref. 'Josephus', 'Ant. of the
Jews', Chap. 7, verse 2). He was hinting at his descent from
King Solomon through King David, as he does in Matthew 1:6, when
he plays Jesus! And, he was saying that "666" was "gold" (i.e.,
"Flavius"), and therefore HIS number.
Also, the '36' (in the '66' part of '666'), which is "Josepos"
(Josephus) cumulates (by the Cumulative Number System) into
'666'! So, '666' is '36', i.e., "Josepos" (Josephus)! This is the last
nail in the coffin of Christianity - as it indeed now has been proven
false! It ALL points to 'Piso'! Now, here is what Abelard Reuchlin
has to say about '666';
"The Pisos used the numbers all through the NT - in various ways,
again and again. Piso teased that even "the very hairs of your head are
all numbered!" (Mat. 10:30) There was were no copyright laws then,
and their use of code was like copyrighting their work. That way, no
future authors could steal the honor (sic) which they wished for their
memories forever, by claiming, even secretly, that the great work was
"But then, Piso's oldest living son, Julius (who was John as a little boy
in the Synoptic Gospels), became angry at the family. As Julius Severus,
he had just destroyed Bar Cochbah in the year which is now 135 CE (AD).
But instead of rewarding him, his surviving brother Justus and Justus'
friend Emperor Hadrian, who was under his thumb, had named sister
Claudia's son Antoninus to succeed Hadrian. Julius felt his own grandson
should have been chosen successor instead. (Ref. Dio Cassius, LXIX.17(1),
which is volume 8, pg. 455, Loeb edition). But Hadrian even specified that
his two own young kinsmen should be emperors after Antoninus!"
"So in 136-137 Julius retaliated by writing Revelation, and in it turning
the number code against the family. He ridicules Pliny, who was number
27, by making the beast in Revelation 13:1 (14 and therefore his own
father!) have 10 horns, 7 heads, and 10 diadems (crowns), which total 27.
He makes his own dead father into the dragon, who acts 42 months
(Matthew 1:17; 3x14, that is Jesus) in Revelation 13:5. The seven angels
have seven plagues (a total of 14!) in Revelation 15:6."
"He is most vicious toward his father in Revelation 13:18 by saying the
number of the beast was 666. 600 (which was Xpistos by the initial system)
plus 66 (Flaouios Josepos) by small numbering). That is, daddy and his
creation, Christ! Some ancient manuscripts have this as 616, but the result
is the same. For 16 is P by the sequence system, and P stood for Piso. So
616 is Piso plus Christ!"
"In that same verse, Julius derides his father yet another way. That involved
a forth Greek numerical code system: regular (not "small") numbering in
words and entire phrases. The total of the phrase introducing the number of
the beast ("and his number is") was made to be 1,702 in regular numbering,
so that when 666 was added to it, the total was 2,368; and that was the same
identical total, also in regular numbering, of the names Jesus Christ. Each
was 2,368." (Also refer to 'City of Revelation', John Michel, Ballantine Books,
NY, 1972, page 163)
And, don't forget the direct and deliberate stipulation by Julius Piso in The
Revelation that "nothing be added or subtracted from this book" (our
paraphrase, and with "this book" meaning specifically The Revelation. Ref.
22:18). But as we can see in the attempted change of the number 666 to 616,
later generations of his family tried various ways and means with which to
hide the proof that Julius Piso left for us in The Revelation including putting
it into other languages instead of the original Greek. Yet, here it is... The
Revelation. The book that is the ending of the story, really IS the ending of
I would suggest for anyone who really wants to know about this in depth that
they get a copy of Reuchlin's booklet and whatever other books on this
subject that you can find.
888 - "Jesus" in Greek initial system (IHSOUS). This was part of the "checking
number" or "proof number" for '666'. Ref. 'The True Authorship of the New
Testament', Abelard Reuchlin, pg. 11.
1000 - 'Ch' (Chi) is the acrostic initial for 'Christ' in the 'old' initial system
(Greek), which was in use even before Piso made his number system.
1000 was used sometimes in lieu of the actual name 'Christ' so as to keep the
meanings hidden (sacred, hallowed), in 'Revelations'. See the Latin number
2368 - The 'checking number' for 666, which by Pythagorean math principles,
adds up to '19' ( 2 + 3 + 6 + 8 = 19 ). That's the name "Piso" in the Greek small
number system! This is proof on top of proof! Far too much to be merely
coincidence and this should be clear to just about everyone.
Why did they use code? They had to use code. As Abelard
Reuchlin says; "The Pisos, through Imperial power, were using the
new faith deliberately as their instrument of control of the
masses. Writing of this openly would have brought Rome's swift
vengeance and the destruction of the Jewish people." Through the
Gospels, epistles, and 'history', the Pisos and their relatives
re-created the environment of the Roman Empire. They advised the
masses to be humble and to respect authority (their own
synthesized and ill gotten authority). They advised servants
(slaves) to be subject to their masters (Peter 1, 2:18), no
matter how they were treated! For, 'their' reward was waiting
for them in heaven (Matt. 6:20). Later, when the family tried to
omit 'Revelations' from the canon, Eusebius (Julius Constantius
Constantine's half-brother), tried to throw you off the trail by saying
something similar to - "I guess Christians put a mention of
Christ in Josephus." They were descendants of Piso, coming down
the line through Marcus Aurelius. Julius Constantius took the
'nomes de plume' of 'Eusebius' (Ref. Works of Abelard Reuchlin).
Suetonius, in his "Twelve Caesars", writes that the Caesars wrote in
'cipher' (i.e., 'code'). He writes about the ciphers used and the letters
invented by them: Julius Caesar, under 'Julius Caesar', pg. 34-35.
