Fact of the Day: Devil Numbers

In Christian theology, 666 is commonly known as the "Devil's Number" or the "Mark of the Beast". But in some of the oldest translations, the number is actually 616.

  3. I did know about 666 from Revelation 13 v 8 but not that some translations render it 616. Interesting!
    Six in Scripture is the number of man. The relevance of numbers in Scripture is very revealing!
