# Genesis 1:1 - The π Constant & Beginning of a Circle

A circle is said to have no beginning or no ending.  So, how is it then that the π ratio can be found in the very first verse of the first chapter of Genesis, which starts with "In the Beginning"?!?!

Using the gematria found in the original Hebrew texts, Craig Cooper discovered that the π constant can be calculated by a simple formula, by multiplying the product of the letters by the number of the letters, and dividing that product by the product of words and by the number of words as found  in Genesis 1:1.  Complements of Vernon Jenkins, the math behind this discovery is summarized and detailed below:

The complete word-by-word and letter-by-letter breakdown is included below.

## Genesis 1:1 in Hebrew

The first verse of the Hebrew Scriptures reads (right to left) as follows:

There are 7 words comprising a total of 28 letters. Since c200 BC each letter has also functioned as a numeral. The values so assigned are written above each letter. Each string of letters (the words, in this case) represents a number obtained by summing the letter values. These 7 results are recorded in blue on the bottom line. Their sum - the verse characteristic value - is 2701.

## Detail of Genesis 1:1 Letter-Products

We now proceed, word by word, to determine the product of the letter values:

If these seven products are multiplied together we obtain the desired result, viz 2^15 x 3^6 x 10^27, or - since each of the exponents is a multiple of 3 - (2^5 x 3^2 x 10^9)^3.  This number may be alternatively expressed as 2.3887872 x 10^34.

## Detail of the Word-Products

The word product total is calculated as follows:
