Numerics in the Bible (continued)
The number “three” in the Bible represents a unity in division. The first occurrence of the number three is found in Genesis 6:10, “And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.” It is interesting to think that the three sons of Noah represented “one” people as a human family; yet, they became three major racial divisions.
Of course we all know of the Trinity. The Father is Spirit and the Holy Spirit is Spirit, but the Son is flesh (two and one). One member of the Trinity becomes flesh and dies. The Son is the second person (division) of the Godhead.
The Bible itself has two major divisions: Old and New Testaments. We know the Law came by Moses but grace and truth by Jesus Christ. There are two testaments in print and the third was in the flesh, Jesus Christ.
History is divided into three parts: past, present, and future.
If you think of your Scripture reading, even it has three applications: historical, doctrinal, and spiritual.
The dimensions are divided by three: height, weight, and depth.
The primary colors are three: red, yellow, and blue.
Light is broken down into three parts: light, heat, and actinic rays (alpha, beta, and gamma rays).
As I consider the numerology of the Bible, I am reminded that man is without excuse. The Trinity is illustrated all around us.
