Over the years I have heard or read of many who believe there is meaning to the numbers as used in the Bible. An entire “science” had been developed called numerology which places almost religious context on numbers. The Bible does not look at numbers in this way but certain numbers do have meaning in the Bible.
This is going to be a segmented post as I want to touch on these numbers but not all at once. I will post one or two numbers used and what the meaning is in coming days. Today I start at the beginning with the number 1 (One).
so that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in union with me and I am in union with you, that they also may be in union with us, so that the world may believe that you sent me.John 17: 21
So that they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has yoked together, let no man put apart.”Matthew 19: 6
These two examples should be self-evident but the Bible uses the number one to indicate unity. When we are of one purpose or we are one in unity this can be construed to be the equivalent of strength in numbers. A bond, unbreakable.
