To The Study Of Biblical Numbers
Jesus said: “…Verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled” (Matthew 5:18). Jots and tittles are small letters and hooks that identify certain Hebrew letters and give meaning to the words. If Jesus said that even these small marks are significant, then every word in the holy scriptures is important–including biblical numbers.
The Amplified Bible states it as follows:
For truly I tell you, until the sky and earth pass away and perish, not one smallest letter nor one little hook [identifying certain Hebrew letters] will pass from the Law until all things [it foreshadows] are accomplished. (Matthew 5:18, AMP)
This study explains the importance of biblical numerology and provides guidelines for properly interpreting numbers. You will learn the meaning of selected numbers, their prophetic significance, and how to apply what you learn. These foundational studies will equip you to interpret the spiritual meaning of numbers used in scripture and provide the skills necessary for you to continue this fascinating study independently.
The Apostle Paul admonished believers to “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15). The Amplified Version interprets “rightly dividing” as “correctly analyzing” the Word of truth.
A balanced approach to the study of biblical numbers will enable you to do just that– correctly analyze spiritual truth in this important area of divine revelation.
