http://www.SecretInfoClub.com We've all heard that, in the book of Revelation, the number of the Beast is 666.

Whatever does this mean?

And if the Beast has a number, do others?

Does the name of Jesus have a number?

Does the name of God have a number?

Here's the story. . . .




Today we are used to having a different set of characters to represent letters and numbers.

Our alphabet of letters runs from A to Z, and our system of numbers--or basic numbers--runs from 0 to 9.

But in the ancient world they didn't have two sets of characters for these. Instead, the letters of their alphabets doubled as characters representing numbers.




That's why, for example, Roman numerals are composed of letters.

In Latin, some of the letters did double duty as numbers, so I meant 1, V meant 5, X meant 10, L meant 50, C meant 100, D meant 500, and M meant 1,000.

To get other numbers you had to combine these in various ways, like using II for 2, III for 3, and IV for 4.
