Numbers and their associated symbolism interconnect the Bible in such a way as to prove that God is the sole author, while giving insight into God's minds. They provide continuity from book to book and from Old to New Testaments, and considering that one was written in Hebrew and one in Greek, it is quite amazing that numbers carry consistent meanings throughout both. In Numbers of the Bible, How to Interpret the Mind of God, Dr. Gannaway presents the symbolism attached to the numbers of the Bible and demonstrates how that symbolism evolves from number to number. Dr. Gannaway describes the imagery and provides examples 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. Dr. Gannaway proves that the symbolism associated with the explicit form of numbers and their equivalent numerical value in 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 which 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, Numbers of the Bible, How to Interpret the Mind of God is the perfect tool for understanding this often confusing phenomena.


Dr. Randall Gannaway is an award winning author who has been a student of the Bible for over fifty years. He holds a Doctorate in Operations Research from Texas A&M University and teaches classes on the relationship of the Old and New Testaments, Old Testament Messianic prophecies, and Bible symbolism. Dr. Gannaway currently lives with his wife in Dallas, Texas.
