People's Bible Notes for Revelation 13:18


Re 13:18 THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast. Re 13:17 speaks of "the name of the beast". It has, then, a name. It also speaks of the number of its name. Its name, then, is some number. We wish to discover its name, and if we can count the number, we will find its name. "The number of the beast", that is, the "number of its name" (Re 13:17) is the number of a man, and that number is "six hundred and sixty-six".

    I agree with Bronze's statement. I rather know the name of JESUS in which I am safe. For there is no other name given under heaven. The name of the LORD is a strong tower, the righteous run in to it and they are safe.

    After that, though I am curious like others, I trust that the name of the beast is of much less consequence.
  • The name is from vatican, the title of the pope!
