The inspiration of this book came when Jethro Black decided to write the word Circle in a circle and found some interesting mathematical patterns in this word. You can see a lecture on this on YouTube if you search for “Lecture 4 The Amazing Power of Gematria - The Magic Circle” but I would suggest you watch the first 3 lectures first before watching the fourth lecture.


Jethro Black uses Gematria mainly in Hebrew and English to show the significance of the circle in various cultures. He discusses Crop Circles and Stone Circles, he shows the relationship between the 7 days of the week, the Sabbath and the Circle. He shows how the circle is connected to the 50th year – Jubilee Year on which the Bible requires land (purchased in Israel) to return to its original owner and that slaves should go free. He also shows how the circle is related to the giving of the Torah or Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai 50 days after coming out of Egypt. Even Arthur’s round table shows its face in this book with a chapter devoted to it!


Once you have read this book you wont look at a circle in the same way again. This is a deep esoteric book revealing the true magic of the circle.


So here are some examples.


Firstly, using the English Placement Values (PV) A = 1, B = 2…Z = 26 and adding the letters:


CIRCLE = 3 + 9 + 18 + 3 + 12 + 5 = 50 (PV)


So we have an immediate connection of the cycle of 50 years (the fiftieth being the Jubilee) and the circle as mentioned above. The Bible states that on this year there  should be announced the beginning of Liberation which in Hebrew is Deror – דרור. Using Hebrew Placement Values where א = 1, ב = 2…. ת = 22 then


דרור = 4 + 20 + 6 + 20 = 50 = Circle (PV)


FIFTY = 66 (PV)




So we can see how Freedom is related to the circle in two ways, both in Hebrew and English.


Jethro explains why a clock has 12 hours. The day is divided into two parts which we call day and night. So the word day can mean the day light hours or it can mean the whole 24 hours. On the two days of the year called the equinox the day light hours are the same as the night hours and so they have 12 hours.




A chapter is devoted to crop circles and Jethro explains that the first crop circles appeared in corn fields. CORN = 50 = CIRCLE (PV).


He even connects the circle to Israel (ISRAEL = 64 = DOZEN (PV)) and explains why Jacob could not have his twelfth and last son until he had fought with the angel who then blessed him.




This is another deep esoteric book revealing multiple interrelated connections connected to the circle.
