Cracking the Bible's Numeric Code
How to Interpret the Numbers of the Bible
About the Book
Numbers and their associated symbolism interconnect the Bible in such a way as to prove that God is the sole author. They provide continuity from book to book and from the Old to New Testaments. In Cracking the Bible's Numeric Code, Dr. R. J. Gannaway presents the symbolism attached to the numerals of the Bible and demonstrates how that symbolism evolves from number to number.
Dr. Gannaway describes this imagery and provides examples of its use in scripture, revealing techniques for reducing numbers to their simplest forms and for converting the original Hebrew and Greek letters of the Bible into numbers. Gannaway proves that the symbolism associated with the explicit form of numbers and their equivalent numerical value when converted from words is the same. He also explains why certain numbers appear where they do and describes the added dimension of meaning they bring to the scripture.
With an appendix that contains a section on the names of God and their numerical values, examples of symbolism in the Apocrypha, alternative numerical analysis techniques, and a concordance of number usage in the Bible, Cracking the Bible's Numeric Code is the perfect tool for understanding this often confusing phenomena.
