# The
Colel Rule of Gematria

Adding
or subtracting the isopsephia value of two words always results
in a whole number. A circle however can represent two words - one
for the diameter, the other for the circumference. If one measure
starts out as a whole number the other word never comes out as an
exact whole number because the calculation always involves the value
of pi which is an irrational number. The Greeks then applied the
Colel Rule of gematria which allows the calculated value to be rounded
up or down by one unit.

The
Greek word Helios ('hlioV = 318), meaning
the “sun,” is a perfect examples of the colel rule in
action because a circle with a diameter of 318 units can have a
circumference of either 999 or 1000 units depending on the direction
of the calculation. When the diameter is 318 units the circumference
is 999.0 units but when the circumference is given as 999 units
the diameter is 317.99 units which the rule rounds up to 318 units.
When the circumference is 1,000 units the diameter is 318.3 units
which the rule rounds down to 318 units.

The
gematria value of a word, name, phrase, or a sentence can be made
into either straight lines or the circumference of a circle. If
you are dealing with a circle in a graph, the calculated number
of a cross, diameter, or a circumference could match the gematria
value of hundreds of Greek words that a gematria master could then
pick and choose from to construct a story. It is completely unreasonable
and unnecessary for the colel rule to have a margin of error of
just one or two units for verses that could have a gematria value
of five to ten thousand units or more. It makes sense that the margin
of error be the number of units that equals the width of the finest
line that can be drawn with a compass or pen by an expert draftsman
on the diagram. By experience, if the gematria value of the verse
is within 1 to 2% of the actual value that the diagram calls for,
the margin of error is virtually invisible to the naked eye when
plotted on a graph.

All
the diagrams in this book were drawn using a computerized drafting
program accurate to one ten thousandth of a unit. The length of
the red lines on the diagrams in the following chapters represent
the exact gematria value of the Greek source text. The computer
generated drawings appear to make a perfect fit. The very small
gaps and overlaps that the red lines make with the Jesus Graph and
the various circles only become visible to the naked eye when the
drawing is greatly enlarged. If an expert draftsman drew each diagram
with a very sharp pencil-lead, the results would be identical to
the computer drawing because the fit of the lines in any direction
is less than the thickness of the lines used to make the drawing!
The computer also calculated each diagram's margin of error from
a perfect fit. That data is shown in table form in Appendix B. As
anyone can verify, the average margin of error is less than 1%.
