Numbers in Isaiah Part 2

September 8, 2012

There seem to be some interesting correlations between the book of Isaiah and the Bible as a whole:

    1. Isaiah has 66 chapters and the Bible 66 books.

       

    2. The appearance of John the Baptist is prophesied in Isaiah 40:3. How interesting that John the Baptist is introduced in the 40th book, 3rd chapter (Matt. 3).

       

    3. Isa 45:22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.  Isa 45:23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.   

 

These verses are the 929th and 930th verses of Isaiah, and are clearly linking, both by their reappearance in the New Testament (at least verse 23) and, I would argue, their numeric signature as well,  JEHOVAH of the Old Testament with Jesus Christ of the New Testament (see Romans 14:11 and Phil 2:10).  Jesus Christ is introduced in the 930th chapter of the Bible, which is the first chapter of the New Testament, Matthew chapter 1.  Put another way, JEHOVAH of the Old Testament (the Saviour before whom every knee shall bow, and numerically represented by 929 in this example [symbolically equalling the Old Testament]) “transitions”* to Jesus Christ of the New Testament (the Saviour before whom every knee shall bow, and numerically represented here by 930 [symbolically equalling the NT]).   I’m not too old to use the word “cool”.  That’s cool!

*Note: I am not making any kind of a doctrinal statement by the aforementioned; I’m not implying Christ actually became JEHOVAH at any time, but rather am commenting on the transitional focus between the testaments.
