<< Concerning the true reading of Revelation 13:18, I suggest there are a
number of good reasons for believing the 'number of the beast' to be 666
rather than 616, viz
I agree that "666" is probably the orginal text; but you seem to miss my
point. Let me put it as question.
Suppose God inspired a writer to write "666", but later a scribe changed the
text to "616"; and, in addition all copies of the text with "666" were lost,
so that all that was available were the copies with "616." If a clever
person by various mathematical processes found a name which matched "616" and
that name was a stunningly impressive suggestion, would the name show that
this Bible verse was of divine origin----even though the clever name was not
based on a word inspired by God?
