Nachash NChSh (the serpent) = 50 + 8 + 300 = 358
Because Nun + 50, Cheth + 8, and Shin = 300.
To align the first and second numbers:
Nephesh NPhSh(the soul) = 50 + 80 + 300 = 430
Because Nun = 50, Peh = 80, and Shin still = 300
And bringing the third letter into line:
Nephil NPhL(He fell) = 5o + 80 + 30 + 160.
Nun = 50, Peh = 80, Lamed = 30.
And there is the story of the Fall of Man in one operation of Temurah.
The serpent tempted Eve. She heeded the voice of her own unconscious will and, in her turn, tempted Adam and thus he fell. Mankind became free and divine at once, which is why
Nachash (the serpent) = 358
Messiach (the savior) = 358.
There is the Gnostic interpretation.
but the Christianoids have never understood "sin", no wonder they attack it so violently. They assume that fury makes up for ignorance.
P.S.: They're wrong, but they'll never know it.
With love under will,
