ASTOUNDING NEW DISCOVERIES
THE NEWLY-discovered facts which form
the basis for the subject matter of this book are supremely important and
highly significant! They are facts which
that the Bible could not
possibly have been written by mere human beings alone, but that it is a
supernatural, God-inspired, God-given book!
They are facts which enable us to see
before our very eyes an
actual scientific demonstration
of the divine, verbal
inspiration of the Bible. These are indeed “Astounding New Discoveries.”
The newly-revealed facts are facts
which have been discovered beneath the very surface of the original Bible
text. They are facts which have been mysteriously and peculiarly hidden for
many centuries! They are facts which have been revealed; not merely by the
twos or threes, but by the
hundreds and thousands!
They are facts which are baffling and
confounding atheists and agnostics - facts which no living person has been
able to discredit or refute. They are facts which are causing sceptical and
modernistic thinkers to accept the Bible as a supernatural, God-inspired
They are facts which constitute some
of the greatest discoveries of all time. Is it any wonder that discoveries
such as these are called “Astounding New Discoveries”?
The foregoing statements in regard to
the profound newly- discovered facts no doubt cause the majority of readers
to ask numerous questions.
are the amazing facts which
have been discovered beneath the very surface of the original Bible text?
do these facts scientifically
prove that the Bible could not possibly have been written by mere human
beings alone, but that it is a supernatural, God-inspired book?
important questions are now definitely
settled by these discoveries? Who
discovered the facts?
were they discovered?
were they not discovered until
do they affect us?
These and various other questions no
doubt arise in the minds of those who are somewhat curious about the amazing
newly-discovered facts. However, before we state what these facts are -
before we attempt to answer any of these questions - it is necessary to
remind or inform the reader of ...
What The Bible “Claims” Concerning Itself
There can be no doubt that the Bible
“claims” to be a supernatural, God-inspired, God-given book. The Bible
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God.”
(2 Timothy 3:16)
The expression, “given by inspiration
of God,” is the translation of one Greek word “theopnenstos” which
means literally “God-breathed.” The great Bible “claim” then,” is that “all
Scripture” - the entire Bible - is “God-breathed.”
The Bible “claims” that the writers of
Scripture wrote not by their own will, but only as they were “moved” or
“controlled by the Holy Spirit of God. 2 Peter 1:21 declares that the
Scripture came “not by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they
were moved by the Holy Spirit.”
Another translation of this same
passage declares that no Scripture “was ever borne by man’s will; but men
spoke from God, being borne by the Holy Spirit.”
The Bible “claims” that the words
which the prophets wrote were not their own words but they were the very
words of God Himself. The Person speaking was God, not man. God was speaking
“God spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets.”
“He (the Lord GOD) spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets.”
“The Spirit of the LORD spoke by me, and His word (not the writer’s own
word) was in my tongue.” (2 Samuel 23:1,
“Behold, I (God) have put My words in your mouth.”
“You shall speak My words (God’s words) to them.”
Statements such as “Thus
says the LORD,” “God said,”
and similar expressions, occur more
than 2,500 times in the Bible.
So the Bible makes startling “claims”
for itself - it actually “claims” to be a supernatural, God-breathed,
God-given book - the very Word of God Himself. This is the unmistakable
language of the Bible. Numerous other Biblical statements could be given to
further show that the Bible makes this amazing “claim,” but those already
mentioned are sufficient for the present purpose.
Yes, there can be no doubt about what
the Bible “claims” concerning itself. However, many have raised the question
- “Is that claim actually true? Is the Bible actually the very Word of God?”
The facts which have been recently
discovered beneath the very surface of the original Bible text now
scientifically prove and demonstrate before our very eyes that the Bible
claim is true - that the Bible is a supernatural, God-inspired book!
Various questions concerning the
newly-discovered facts were mentioned in a preceding paragraph. The first of
these questions can now be discussed and answered.
What Are The Newly-Discovered Facts?
What are the amazing facts which have
been discovered beneath the very surface of the original Bible text? What
are these facts which
scientifically prove that
the Bible could not possibly have been written by mere human beings alone,
but that it is a supernatural, God-inspired, God-given Book?
It has been stated that the facts have
been mysteriously hidden beneath the very surface of the
original Bible text.
In order to understand what
these facts are, it will be necessary to know …
The Meaning of the Term “Original Bible Text”
Most persons are acquainted with the
fact that the Bible contains two main divisions - the Old Testament, and
the New Testament. Strange as it may seem, these two main divisions of the
Bible were originally written in different languages. The Old Testament was
originally written in Hebrew while the New Testament was written in Greek.
By the term “Original Bible text” is
meant the Hebrew and Greek text of the Bible - the words of the writers in
the original languages
- not a translation of
their words into some other language. The facts, then, have been discovered
beneath the surface of the Hebrew
Old Testament text and the
New Testament text.
Now the reader’s attention is called
to something very, very important. We wish to point out a
– which occurs in Scripture
more times than any other. It is the number “seven.”
From the first book of the Bible
through to the last book, seven is by far the outstanding number. For
example, the Sabbath was the seventh day. In Egypt there were seven years
of plenty and seven years of famine. When the city of Jericho was captured,
the people and seven priests who had seven trumpets marched around the city
Every seventh year the land of the
Israelites was not to be cultivated or planted. Solomon was seven years
building the temple. After its completion he held a feast for seven days.
Naaman washed seven times in the river.
In the book of Revelation, the last
book of the Bible, this number is especially outstanding. Seven churches,
seven lampstands, seven seals, seven trumpets, seven vials, seven stars,
seven spirits, etc., are mentioned. In all, the number seven occurs in the
book of Revelation more than fifty times.
It has long been known that the number
seven occurs in the Bible, in this particular manner more frequently than
any other number. However, only recently it has been known that this same
number also occurs in a mysterious and peculiar manner beneath the very
surface of the Hebrew Old Testament text and Greek New Testament text.
When it is stated that the “sevens”
occur in a peculiar manner “beneath the surface” of the original Bible text,
we mean that they occur in such a way that they are not noticed or
discovered by merely reading the surface, or words. The sevens are strangely
out of the sight of ordinary Hebrew and Greek readers. They are mysteriously
Thousands who have read and studied
the original Hebrew and Greek text of the Bible have passed by these strange
occurrences of the number seven without even noticing their presence. These
sevens are so deeply concealed that special searching and investigation and
special counting are necessary in order to find them. Thus, they are said to
occur “beneath the surface” of the text because they are beyond the
observation and view of ordinary Hebrew and Greek readers.
It has been discovered that thousands
of these sevens are mysteriously hidden in the structure of the text. They
are strongly and remarkably concealed in every conceivable manner in the
Hebrew and Greek letters, words, sentences, paragraphs, and passages!
What are the newly-discovered facts?
The “sevens” - the “sevens” which occur beneath the surface of the original
Hebrew and Greek text of the Bible - are the amazing newly- discovered
The “Astounding New Discoveries” are
having to do with numbers. These
recently revealed numerical facts or “sevens,” in a most extraordinary way,
enable us to see before our very eyes, an actual scientific demonstration of
the divine verbal inspiration of the Bible.
The reader is given examples of these
newly-discovered numerical facts before he learns how they scientifically
prove that the Bible is a supernatural, God-breathed book.
The following are examples of facts,
or “sevens,” which have been discovered beneath the surface of the Hebrew
text of the first verse in the Old Testament - the very first verse, the
very first statement in the Bible.
Genesis, Chapter One, Verse I
It is indeed strange to note that the
number of Hebrew words in this verse is not 6, not 8, but exactly 7. Here
the number seven is discovered by counting the words.
Now if a person counts the Hebrew
letters in these seven words, he will discover that the number of letters
divides perfectly by seven - is an exact multiple of seven. The number of
letters in the seven words is not 27, not 29 but exactly 28, or 4 ~ 7s.
Each numerical “fact” or “‘seven”
which occurs in the structure of the text is called a “feature - a
The first two have already been mentioned.
FEATURE ONE. The number of Hebrew
words in this verse is exactly 7.
FEATURE TWO. The number of letters in
the seven words is exactly 28, or 4 ~ 7s
FEATURE THREE. The first three of
these seven Hebrew words contain the subject and predicate of the sentence.
These three words are translated – “In the beginning God created.” The
number of letters in these first three Hebrew words are exactly 14, or 2 ~
The last four of these seven words
contain the object of the sentence. These four words are translated — “the
heavens and the earth.” The numbers of letters in these last four Hebrew
words is 14, or 2 ~ 7s.
FEATURE FOUR. These last four Hebrew
words consist of two subjects. The first is “the heavens,” and the second is
“and the earth.” The number of letters in the first object is exactly 7. The
number of letters in the second object is 7.
FEATURE FIVE. Three leading
words in this verse of seven words are “God” - the subject - and “heavens”
and “earth” - the objects. The number of letters in these three Hebrew words
is exactly 14, or 2 ~ 7s. The number of letters in the other four words of
the verse is 14, or 2 ~ 7s.
FEATURE SIX. The shortest word is in
the middle. The number of letters in this word and the word to its
left is exactly 7.
FEATURE SEVEN. The number of letters
in the middle word and the word to its right is exactly 7.
These sevens - these numeric features
or facts - are indeed strangely hidden “beneath the surface.” They are truly
beyond the view of ordinary readers of the Hebrew text and are discovered
only by investigation and counting.
The above are only a few examples of
the many amazing numeric facts which have been discovered in the structure
of this first verse of only seven Hebrew words. Literally dozens of other
phenomenal numeric features strangely underlie the structure of this verse.
Examples of these newly-discovered
facts or numerical features should be pointed out from other passages before
the reader learns how the facts scientifically prove that the Bible could
not possible have been written by mere human beings alone, but that it is a
supernatural, God-inspired, God-given Book.
The following are examples of the
newly-discovered facts or “sevens” which occur in a peculiar manner beneath
the surface of the Greek text of the first verses in the New Testament.
Matthew, Chapter One, Verses 1-17
The Account of Christ’s Genealogy
The first seventeen verses in the book
of Matthew form a natural logical division by themselves; for they deal with
one particular subject, namely, the genealogy of Christ.
These first seventeen verses of the
Greek New Testament consist of two main sections. (1) Verses 1-11. (2)
Verses 12-17. Each section contains amazing numeric features in the
structure of its text.
The following are a few examples of
the facts or “sevens” which have been discovered beneath the surface of the
first main section, verses 1-11.
FEATURE ONE. The number of Greek
vocabulary words used in the first eleven verses is not 48, not 50, but
exactly 49, or 7 ~ 7s.
It must be remembered that the number
of vocabulary words
in a passage is usually
different from the total number of words in a passage. The vocabulary words
are the different words
For instance, the word “and” is one
word in the vocabulary, but it may be repeated many times in the passage
itself. A man may have a vocabulary of only five hundred words. Some of
these five hundred different words, such as “as,” “for” “by,” etc, may be
used over and over again.
The number of vocabulary words - the
different words used in a passage, is thus not the same as the total number
of words used. (We mentioned that the number of vocabulary words in the
first eleven verses of Matthew is exactly 49, or 7 ~ 7s. Now let us
FEATURE TWO. The number of letters in
these 49 words is exactly 266, or 38 ~ 7s.
FEATURE THREE. Of these 266 of the
vocabulary words the number of vowels is exactly 140, or 20 ~ 7s. Of these
266 letters of the vocabulary, the number of consonants is I26, or 18 ~ 7s.
FEATURE FOUR. Of these 49 words, the
number which begins with a vowel is exactly 28, or 4 ~ 7s. The number of
words which begin with a consonant is 21, or 3 ~ 7s.
FEATURE FIVE. Of the 49 Greek
vocabulary words, the number which are nouns is exactly 42, or 6 ~ 7s. The
number which are not nouns is 7.
FEATURE SIX. Of the 42 nouns in the
first eleven verses, the number which are proper nouns is exactly
35, or 5 ~ 7s. The number which are common nouns is 7.
FEATURE SEVEN. The number of Greek
letters in these 7 common nouns is exactly 49, or 7 ~ 7s. It is amazing to
note that in these 7 common nouns alone, there are more than 20 numeric
FEATURE EIGHT. The number of times the
35 proper names occur is exactly 63, or 9 ~ 7s.
FEATURE NINE. Of the 35 proper names
in the vocabulary of the first eleven verses of Matthew, the number of male
names is exactly 28, or 4 ~ 7s. The number which are not male names is 7.
FEATURE TEN. The number of times these
28 male names occur is exactly 56, or 8 ~ 7s.
FEATURE ELEVEN. In these first 11
verses; three women are mentioned - Tamar, Rahab, and Ruth. The number of
Greek letters in these three names is exactly 14, or 2 ~ 7s.
FEATURE TWELVE. Just one city is named
in this passage, namely, Babylon. The number of Greek letters in this word
is exactly 7.
FEATURE THIRTEEN. Of these 49 Greek
vocabulary words in the first eleven verses, the number of words which occur
more than once is exactly 35, or 5 ~ 7s. The number of words which occur
only once is 14, or 2 ~ 7s.
FEATURE FOURTEEN. Of these 49 Greek
vocabulary words, the number which appear in the only one form is exactly
42, or 6 ~ 7s. The number which appear in more than one form is 7.
These numeric facts or sevens are
indeed beyond the view of mere “readers” of the Greek text. They are truly
mysteriously hidden beneath the surface and can be discovered only by
searching and calculations.
It was stated that the first seventeen
verses in the Greek, New Testament consists of two main sections. (1) Verses
1 - 11. (11) Verses 12 - 17.
The above are merely a few examples of
the many amazing numerical features which have been discovered beneath the
surface of this first section of eleven verses. The very structure of the
passage is literally saturated with phenomenal occurrences of the number
seven. The second section, verses 12 - 17, contains equally profound numeric
features of its own.
Before we show how these facts or
sevens scientifically prove the divine inspiration of the Bible, let us
quickly and briefly point out a few additional examples from the Greek text
of other New Testament passages.
The space in this small booklet is
definitely limited, therefore it is necessary to omit many interesting and
informative things that we would like to include. Volumes could be written.
Here we can present only some of the highlights.
The section following the first
seventeen verses of Matthew is verses 18 - 25. In passing, we give space to
mention only two of the many phenomenal numeric facts which have been
discovered beneath the surface of this one passage.
Matthew, Chapter One, Verses 18 - 26
The Account of Christ’s Birth
FEATURE ONE. It is indeed interesting
to note that the number of Greek vocabulary words in this passage is not 76,
not 78, but exactly 77, or 11 ~ 7s. Also of special interest is …
FEATURE TWO. Of the 77 Greek
vocabulary words, the number of words the angel used in speaking to Joseph
is exactly 28, or 4 ~ 7s.
Even the angel’s little speech has
amazing numerical features all of its own. They are entirely separate from
the rest of the passage, yet they form a part of the numerical features of
the whole passage. They are intertwined in such a way that the entire
passage contains remarkable occurrences of the number seven. This number
strangely underlies the very structure of the passage in every conceivable
manner. The Greek letters and words are literally permeated with amazing
Following are merely two of many
numerical facts which are strangely hidden beneath the surface of the second
chapter of Matthew.
Matthew, Second Chapter
The Account of Christ’s Childhood
FEATURE ONE. The number of Greek
vocabulary words in the second chapter of Matthew is exactly 161, or 23 ~
FEATURE TWO. The number of Greek
letters in these 161 words is exactly 896, or 128 ~ 7s.
There are several paragraphs in the
second chapter of Matthew, and each paragraph has amazing numerical features
all of its own. They are separate from the rest of the passage, yet in a
peculiar and intricate way, they form a part of the amazing features of the
whole chapter. They are intertwined in such a phenomenal way that the entire
chapter is one great mathematical unit which consists of amazing numerical
For example, the number of Greek
vocabulary words in the first six verses divides perfectly by 7. The number
of vocabulary words is exactly 56, or 8 ~ 7s.
There are three speeches in the
chapter. Herod speaks, the wise men speak, the angel speaks. Each speech
shows numeric features in itself, yet each forms only part of the chapter,
which as a whole has phenomenal features of its own. Each division alone
shows the same numeric phenomena found in the chapter as a whole.
Now let us go on to the book of Mark
and examine several passages. The same type of numerical phenomena that we
found hidden in the structure of Matthew, are also found beneath the surface
Mark, Chapter One, Verses 1
The number of Greek vocabulary words
in these first eight verses is not 76, not 78, but exactly 77, or 11~ 7s. Of
the 77 vocabulary words, the number John used in his speech is exactly 21,
or 3 ~ 7s. Again these are but a few of the many numeric features which
permeate the structure of this passage.
The next natural paragraph following
these first eight verses consists of verses 9, 10, 11. This paragraph gives
an account of the baptism of Christ. The number of vocab-ulary words in this
passage is exactly 35, or 5 ~ 7s.
Going on to the second chapter of Mark
for another example, we find, in verses 13-17, an account of the call of
Levi (Matthew), and Christ’s conversation with the Scribes and Pharisees.
The number of Greek vocabulary words in these five verses is exactly 49, or
7 ~ 7s. Of the 49 vocabulary words the number used by Christ is exactly 14,
or 2 ~ 7s while the number of words used by the Scribes is exactly 7.
In the fourth chapter of Mark verses 3
– 20, Christ relates the parable of the sower. The number of Greek
vocabulary words in this parable is exactly 49, or 7 ~ 7s. In Mark, chapter
13, verses 5 - 37, we find our Lord’s important message regarding future
events and the Second Coming of Christ. The number of Greek vocabulary words
in this passage is exactly 203, or 29 ~ 7s.
Going on to the very last passage in
the book of Mark, we find the same marvellous numeric phenomena. The
following are only four of over one hundred numerical features which have
been discovered in the structure of this one passage of only twelve verses -
Mark, chapter 16:9 - 20.
The number of Greek vocabulary words
in these 12 verses is exactly 98, or 14 ~ 7s. The number of letters in the
98 vocabulary words is exactly 553, or 79 ~ 7s. Of these 553 letters, the
number of vowels is exactly 294, or 42 ~ 7s. The number of consonants is
259, or 37 ~ 7s. Of the 98 Greek vocabulary words, the number used by Christ
in addressing His disciples is exactly 42, or 6 ~ 7s. The number of
vocabulary words which form no part of Christ’s speech is 56, or 8 ~ 7s.
This passage not only shows amazing
numeric features as a whole, but it shows features within the features, and
further features within those. The separate paragraphs have features of
their own within the features of the complete passage. The vocabulary has
its features, and the forms have theirs. It is marvellous
One of the most interesting and
fascinating studies in connection with newly-discovered facts is the study
of “numeric values.”
In Hebrew and Greek, every letter,
word, sentence, and passage has a definite “numeric value” or “arithmetical
sum.” The reader will be surprised to learn that thousands of the
newly-discovered facts or “7s” occur in an astonish-ing manner in the
“numeric values” of the Bible words, sentences, and passages.
The Hebrews and Greeks did not use
figures such as 1, 2, 3, 4, etc., to express “numbers” - they used the
letters of their alphabets instead! For instance, if a Hebrew or a Greek
wanted to write “1”, he would write the first letter of his alphabet. If he
wanted to write “2”, he would write the second letter of his alphabet, or if
he wished to express “3”, he would write the third letter of his alphabet,
and so on.
Each letter in the Hebrew and the
Greek alphabet stands for a certain number - each letter is assigned a
definite “numeric value.” In other words, every letter in Hebrew and in
Greek is a “number” as well as a “letter.” (See chart, inside back cover.
Since each letter has a numeric value,
each word likewise has a numeric value, for every word is made up of one or
more letters. The numeric value of a word is obtained by adding the numeric
values of the various letters in that particular word.
By way of illustration, let us
determine the numeric value of the word “Jesus.” In Greek, “Jesus” is
spelled “I-E-S-O-U-S.” “I” stands for 10, “E” stands for 8, “S” stands for
200, “O” for 70, “U” for 400, and “S” for 200. If we add these
numbers we will discover that the numeric value of the word
This numeric value, at first thought,
might seem to be very insignificant. However, when we turn to the book of
Revelation chapter 13, verse 18, and find that Satan’s number, or the number
of the Antichrist is plainly stated to be
we begin to realize that there must be some significance to the numeric
value of the word “Jesus” - exactly 888! This strange comparison causes us
to marvel and wonder!
Just as every word has a certain
numeric value, so every sentence, paragraph and book of the Bible has a
definite numeric value or arithmetical sum. The numeric value of a sentence
is obtained by adding the numeric value of each word contained therein.
Likewise, the numeric value of a paragraph is obtained by adding the numeric
value of all the words in the paragraph. The numeric value of each of the
sixty-six books of the Bible is determined in precisely the same manner.
Now let us go back to the first verse
of Genesis for a moment. There are three important nouns in the verse -
“God,” “heaven,” and “earth.” The numeric values of these three nouns are
86, 395 and 296, respectively. When we add these three numbers, we find that
the total numeric value of the three words is not 776, or 778, but,
strangely enough, is exactly 777,
or 111 ~ 7s. Neither 776 nor 778 of course divides evenly by 7.
It is strange to note that the
“numeric value” of the verb in the first verse of Genesis is also a number
which divides perfectly by 7. The numeric value of the Hebrew word “created”
is exactly 203, or 29 ~ 7s.
Turning now to the first seventeen
verses of Matthew the account of Christ’s Genealogy, we find that the
numeric value of the vocabulary words in those verses is also an exact
multiple of 7, namely 42,364, or 6,052 ~ 7s. Notice that number is not
42,363 or 42,365. Neither of those divides evenly by 7. If even one Greek
letter were taken out or exchanged for another, the numeric value of the
passage would be changed.
We mentioned previously that exactly
77 vocabulary words are used in the account of Christ’s birth, Matthew
1:18-25. The reader will marvel at the fact that the numeric value of these
77 words is also an exact multiple of 7, namely 51,247 or 7,321 ~ 7s.
We also mentioned that the angel used
exactly 28 of these 77 vocabulary words when speaking to Joseph. The numeric
value of the angels’ words is exactly 21,042 or 3,006 ~ 7s.
In the second chapter of Matthew, the
account of Christ’s childhood, exactly 161 vocabulary words are used. The
numeric value of these words is exactly 123,529 or 17,647 ~ 7s. We could go
on and on giving additional examples, but unfortunately space is limited.
Note one other particular manner in
which the “sevens” are found in the structure of the Bible text. The
examples which have been given thus far are examples of facts which occur
beneath the surface of single passages. The following features, however,
occur in a different manner.
They are called “chain” features
because they occur in the structure of words that are separated by great
distances. The words in a “chain” feature are scattered throughout many
different books of the Bible. They are not confined to any one particular
The names of the Bible writers, for
instance, are widely separated throughout the Scriptures. It is remarkable
to note that the number “seven” is found even in the scatter-ed occurrences
of these names. The number of Old Testament writers named in the Bible is
exactly 21, or 3 ~ 7s.
The numeric value of these 21 Hebrew
names is also divisible by 7. It is exactly 3,808, or 544 ~ 7s. Of these 21
Old Testament writers, those named in the New Testament are Moses, David,
Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Hosea and Joel. In all, exactly 7.
The numeric value, of these 7 names is
exactly 1,554 or 222 ~ 7s. The name which appears the greatest number of
times in the Old Testament is David. The number of times his name is found
is exactly 1,134, or 162 ~ 7s. The name Jeremiah, for instance, occurs in 7
Old Testament books in 7 different forms in Hebrew, and the number of times
it occurs in those 7 Old Testament books is exactly 147, or 21 ~ 7s.
The number of times the name of Moses,
the writer of the first book, occurs the Bible is exactly 847, or 121 ~ 7s.
Again these are merely a few examples of the many astounding numeric
features which occur beneath the surface of the Bible writers’ names. In
fact, there are 38 or more features in the occurrences of just this one
The reader can readily see that the
above numeric features are not found in the structure of any one particular
passage, but are found in the structure of the words that are separated by
great distances. These features are strangely hidden in the occurrences of
words which are scattered throughout different books of the Old and New
The discovery of “chain” features such
as these requires careful searching and special investigation of the entire
Bible. One of the most intriguing studies in connection with the
newly-discovered facts is the study of “chain” features. The Bible is
literally filled with them!
In the preceding pages the reader has
been given some idea of the thousands of amazing facts which have been found
in the very structure of Bible passages.
It has been discovered that amazing
numerical facts occur beneath the surface of the original Bible text from
the very first verse in Genesis through to the very last verse in
Revelation. Phenomenal mathematical features, similar to the examples
already presented, underlie and pervade the text of every one of the
sixty-six Bible books. They occur in the very structure of every paragraph
in the entire Bible, not in the paragraphs only, but frequently in the many
subdivisions of paragraphs.
Often single verses are literally
teeming and saturated with astounding numerical facts. These features extend
to all parts of the text, vocabulary, grammatical form, parts of speech,
etc. Frequently as many as a hundred or more numeric features are strangely
hidden beneath the surface of passages which consist of no more than 175
Actually thousands upon thousands of
these numerical facts have been discovered - they are so abundant that more
than 40,000 pages have been required to contain the calculations used in
discovering and enumerating the features of the New Testament alone.
