    It originated in the Jewish tradition and has been used in various forms throughout the Middle East, Europe, and North Africa. Gematria is based on the idea that words have a hidden meaning which can be revealed through numerical values assigned to each letter of a word or phrase. Words and phrases are given numerical meanings using the old mathematical method known as gematria. It has different uses across the Middle East, Europe, and North Africa and has its roots in Jewish custom.

The foundation of gematria is the notion that each letter in a word or sentence has a numerical value that can be used to decode the secret meaning of the word. Although a type of gematria system (‘Aru’) was employed by the ancient Babylonian culture, their writing script was logographic, and the numerical assignments they made were to whole words. The value of these words were assigned in an entirely arbitrary manner and correspondences were made through tables,[2] and so cannot be considered a true form of gematria. Aru was very different from the gematria systems used by Hebrew and Greek cultures, which used alphabetic writing scripts. Similar systems have been used in other languages and cultures derived from or inspired by Hebrew gematria; Arabic abjad numerals, and English gematria. There is currently no academic consensus over whether Hebrew gematria or Greek isopsephy was used first. “Gematria is a method of assigning the numerical values to a term or a phrase”.
