Many Numbers in the Bible Have Meanings

When you read the Bible you will find that there are some numbers that occur more often than others. This, like others things in the Bible, is not by chance. The Bible claims to be inspired by God. What does that mean? Did God just give the book's author some idea and let the author fill in the details? There has been work done that is strong evidence to the contrary. Dr. Ivan Panin devoted his life to studying number patterns in the very words of the Bible. He found a numerical patterns that he felt was the fingerprint of God!

Most people do not have the desire or the patience to the kind of work Dr Panin did. But there is another level how numbers are used that anybody who reads the Bible can benefit from. Some of the numbers are known to have meanings. When the Bible says 40 it means 40. Not 39, not 41, it is 40. Why did God write it that way? Some believe that the numbers given in the Bible have meanings beyond being a number. These kind of numbers are called "spiritual numbers".

The goal of this site is to help you examine how numbers are used in the Bible. It does not attempt to determine what numbers are significant and which ones are not. Only the Lord knows the answer to that question. I pray that this site will grant you a deeper appreciation of the Holy Bible.

In the table below there are three columns: Old Testament, New Testament, and numbers. The old and new testament columns list the books of the Bible. The numbers column list all of the numbers in the Bible. Clicking on a number will show you where it is used.
