A concept «spiritual love»over the prize of sacral greece lexicy of the new testament originality

Keywords: New Testament, spiritual love, gematric, letter, number, sacral lexis.


The article is devoted to one of the most important concepts of the Christian doctrine – «spiritual love», which is the key to the New Testament. For the first time in Ukraine, the authors analyzed the harmonious system of Greek sacral vocabulary, offering their own gematric model.

It is valuable that the title of the Gospel – «The Book of the New Testament» – as convincingly shown by the researchers, are coded dozens of sacred words, phrases that specify, itemize, explain the text itself.

The original attempt is to compare these numbers and their mirror variants with separate scientific constants, to show their hidden connection, symmetry, harmony.

The authors show the original techniques of hermeneutics, gematric of the Greek originality of the New Testament.

The authors developed their own gematric system, which confirmed its accuracy and efficiency in decoding the sacred vocabulary of the New Testament.

In the gematric sum of the names (direct and mirror numbers), «The Book of the New Testament», which are super-excess presuppositions, dozens
of tokens, phrases of the Gospel («Love of the Holy Spirit», «Love of God», «God is Love», «Love one another», «Love the Flames», etc.). Since the name
of the book is the concentration, the hologram of its main idea, we have found confirmation (gematric-spiritual) that the core of the Holy Gospel is the call to love the Creator, the neighbor, even the enemy.
