Richard,

Of course this is very interesting. I am wondering how you propose to use
it.

You hint at finding the Trinity in `The LORD is one'. Do you expect a Jew
to see this as confirmation of a Christian doctrine? He might ask why the
value of the Shema is associated only with ho pater and not with ho huios
(750) and to pneuma to hagion (1450) or to hagion pneuma (1080). Do you
see any comparable significance for these numbers?
