I zero'd it manually and also used the fancy probe
When I make the gcode file and put it on my router, the first pass is 0.250" deep.
Can someone recommend a good gcode reference book?

You're doing 13 passes to makes 0.125" which gives 0.0096" per pass. That equates to 0.244mm. If you saved the g-code using a metric rather than inches post processor it would write the first pass as a Z movement of -0.244 which your control software may be seeing as an inch movement.
I can't think of any other way you would be seeing a first pass of 0.25" otherwise.
Don't most of the posts output the proper g code to put the machine into metric if a metric post is selected? Pretty sure the mach3 posts do that but I am too lazy to head out to the shop to look.

Just seems to much of a coincidence to me that the two measurements are near enough identical. I don't get why some projects would work and some wouldn't though.
