Old Testament & 19

 Rabbi Judah the Pious

 In 12 Century A.D., a Jewish rabbi discovered that remaining intact fragments of the original Torah contained a mathematical structure that appeared to be based on the number 19, just like was discovered in the Quran in 1974. Unfortunately, the majority of the original Torah (Old Testament) has been either lost of destroyed. Thereby making it impossible to find the math structure in the Torah to the degree that we find it in the Quran.

Rabbi Judah the Pious discovered God's mathematical miracle based on the number 19 in intact fragments of the previous scripture. The following is almost 1000 years old, referring to Rabbi Judah:

The people [Jews] in France made it a custom to add [in the morning prayer] the words: " 'Ashrei temimei derekh [blessed are those who walk the righteous way]," and our Rabbi, the Pious, of blessed memory, wrote that they were completely and utterly wrong. It is all gross falsehood, because there are only nineteen times that the Holy Name is mentioned [in that portion of the morning prayer]... and similarly you find the word 'Elohim nineteen times in the pericope of Ve-'elleh shemot. . . . Similarly, you find that Israel were called "sons" nineteen times, and there are many other examples. All these sets of nineteen are intricately intertwined, and they contain many secrets and esoteric meanings, which are contained in more than eight large volumes. . . Furthermore, in this section there are 152 (19x8) words.

 (Studies In Jewish Mysticism, Joseph Dan, Association for Jewish Studies. Cambridge, Massachusetts: 1978, p 88.)

152 is not just any multiple of 19. It is 19 times it's prime number index (8). Similarly, the number of times the 4 words of the "Basmallah" (opening statement of the Quran) in which the miracle is based, are mentioned 2888 times (19 x 152) in the Quran.

So, we know that a Jewish Rabbi bore witness to a similar phenomenon as found in the Quran. Let us now take a look at what the Quran says about the Torah and the 19 code.

[Quran 46:10] Say, "What if it is from GOD and you disbelieved in it? A witness from the Children of Israel has borne witness to a similar phenomenon,* and he has believed, while you have turned arrogant. Surely, GOD does not guide the wicked people.
