192 = MARIAM, the Greek (gematria) name of Mary, the Mother of Jesus—here symbolic of His Church:
40 + 1 + 100 + 10 + 1 + 40 = 192
According to Margaret Starbird’s book, Magdalene’s Lost Legacy: Symbolic Numbers and the Sacred Union in Christianity, in Greek gematria, the sum of the letters in Mariam is 192. This number represents the epitome of four—actually 3 × 4^3. That is significant, for as we have seen, four is the number of Earth, as is reflected in such phrases as “the four corners of the earth” and “the four winds,” and 444 was identified with “flesh and blood”—all the living creatures of the earth, but especially human beings. As we have seen, common expressions like “the four elements,” the “four seasons,” and “four directions” also reflect this concept of four related to physical matter and “mother” earth. In several languages the name of Mary is associated with mother, matter, and material, all of which are related to the Sanskrit matr (Latin: mater, matron; Greek: matrix). In Latin, maritare is “to wed,” a word whose derivations appear in Romance languages and in the English “marry.”
The shape Plato associates with the element earth is the cube, and even (as opposed to odd) integers were considered feminine in the ancient world. Three times the cube of four, that is, 3 × 43 or 3(4 × 4 × 4), equals 192, the gematria of “Mariam.” Because of the associations of the number four with the feminine, “matter,” and “flesh and blood,” the gematria of Mariam reflects the concept of “mother,” and thus all the Mariams in the Gospel story share in this meaning. The name “Mariam” when it appears in the Greek texts of the Gospels with the final letter m thus bears universal connotations of the feminine “container”—the flesh-and-blood vessel or womb of the Mother—through the computation of its gematria.
