The New Testament begins with the genealogy of the Lord Jesus Christ, verses 1-11 cover the period from Abraham the patriarch of the Israelites to their Babylonian Captivity, the vocabulary consists of 49 words which is the product of 7 x 7 = 49, note that the 49 notes on the Musical Scale Chart are arranged into 7 rows of seven notes and the seven candlesticks in Revelation hold seven lamps or candles = 49 candles. The number 7 in the Biblical meaning of numbers symbolizes spiritual perfection.
I have not included all the examples supplied by Ivan Panin concerning the phenomena of sevens in the first 49 words of the New Testament and following is what Ivan Panin said about his demonstration of the subject.
This enumeration of the numeric phenomena of these 11 verses does not begin to be exhaustive, but enough has been shown to make it clear that this part of the genealogy is constructed on an elaborate design of sevens. Let us now turn to the genealogy as a whole. I will not weary your readers with recounting all the numeric phenomena thereof: pages alone would exhaust them. I will point out only one feature: The New Testament is written in Greek. The Greeks had no separate symbols for expressing numbers, corresponding to our Arabic figures, but used instead the letters of their alphabet: just as the Hebrews, in whose language the Old Testament was written, made use for the same purpose. Accordingly the 24 Greek letters stand for the numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800. Every Greek word is thus a sum in arithmetic obtained by adding the numbers for which its letters stand, or their numeric values. Now the vocabulary to the entire genealogy has 72 words. The entire genealogy of Jesus contains 72 words which have a gematria of 42,364 (7 x 6,052 = 42,364). The second part of the chapter verses 18-25 commences after the genealogy and deals with the childhood of Jesus.
Ivan Panin states concerning the second chapter of Mathew. This chapter has at least four logical divisions, and each division shows alone the same phenomena found in the chapter as a whole. Thus the first six verses have a vocabulary of 56 words, or 8 sevens, etc. There are some speeches here: Herod speaks, the Magi speak, the angel speaks. But so pronounced are the numeric phenomena here, that though there are as it were numerous rings within rings, and wheels within wheels, each is perfect within itself, though forming all the while only part of the rest. There is not, however, a single paragraph of the scores in Mathew that is not constructed in exactly the same manner. Only with each additional paragraph the difficulty of constructing it increases not in arithmetical but in geometric progression. For he contrives to write numeric relations to what goes before and after. Thus in his last chapter he contrives to use just 7 words not used by him before……thus we have a miracle – an unheard-of literary, mathematical artist, unequalled, hardly even conceivable. A second fact is yet more important : In this very first section, the genealogy discussed above, the words found nowhere else in the New Testament, occur 42 times, 7 x 6 and have 126 letters 7x6x3, each number a multiple of not only of seven, but of 6 sevens, to name only two of the many numeric features of these words.
But how did Mathew know, when designing this scheme for these words (whose sole characteristic is that they are found nowhere else in the New Testament) that they would not be found in the other 26 books-that they would not be used by the other New Testament writers? Unless we assume the impossible hypothesis that he had an agreement with them to that effect , he must have had the rest of the New Testament before him when he wrote his book. The Gospel of Mathew, then, was written last.
It so happens, however, that the Gospel of Mark shows the very same phenomena. Thus the very passage so triumphantly in today’s Sun a “forgery” the Last Twelve Verses of Mark, presents among some sixty features of sevens the following phenomena:
Ivan Panin demonstrated that every part of the whole Bible contains similar designed numeric phenomena even though the work is so vast it will probably never be completed, enough has been revealed to demonstrate that the numeric designs greatly exceed man’s ability to construct. Though different people over a period of 1400 years wrote the original texts of the Bible they could not have been the source of the words which were somehow dictated to them with or without their knowledge. There are other divine designs pervading the entire Bible that exceed man’s ability to construct and demonstrate the divine origin of the Bible. We should mention that the Bible accurately foretold important historical events centuries or thousands of years before they happened which is the most obvious supernatural content of the Bible.
The words of the Bible were recorded over a period of 1400 years forming intricate designs that the authors probably did not know existed, demonstrating that the words of the Bible were preordained by a higher intelligence that controlled every detail of the whole production.
Information = intelligence, for example Military intelligence means Military Information. My dictionary says information is intelligence; when the source of any information can be verified or revealed the source is always a mind. The first advent of life needed and used masses of information; therefore life definitely had to be the result of a premeditated plan of action by a conscious intelligent Source. The Darwinian Theory of Evolution opposes the facts above but the Darwinian Theory of Evolution is missing it’s first chapter which is definitely the most important chapter of all that should explain how the blind and undirected forces of nature transformed dead materials into something alive, surviving and breeding. The first advent of life was an enormous quantum leap that definitely could not have happened in the way that is vaguely alluded to in fast forward by the mass media. The first advent of life had to have a perfect and fully functioning version of the genetic code which is an intricate and super efficient program with a data base that stores and uses masses of information. Note that the source of this information like all information without exception is a conscious intelligent mind, not one valid example exists of information derived from any other kind of source. The genetic code is an active construction manual, it is also an operator’s manual and repair manual. Darwin speculated that lightening striking primordial soup may have produced life; and that is a very inadequate substitute for the first chapter of the Darwinian Theory of Evolution. Therefore the foundation and beginning of the whole speculative Darwinian Theory of Evolution starts feebly with a suggestion that perhaps lightening and a puddle of mud had something to do with producing the first advent of life.
Darwin said “If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down”.
The complex irreducible content of every example of the genetic code is an organ that could not possibly have been formed by numerous successive slight modifications; this would have proved to Darwin that his theory had absolutely broken down. Note that we are not claiming that the genetic code cannot be modified by slight successive modifications. We are noting the required perfection, the mass of information and the super hi tech complexity of the first version of a fully functioning genetic code which was absolutely necessary for the introduction of the very first form of life. The first fully functioning version of the genetic code for obvious reasons could not have been preceded by partially completed models or many experimental models that almost worked, therefore the first genetic code could not possibly have been formed by numerous successive slight modifications.
Every living thing has a genetic code which has very appropriately been called the blueprint of life. Variations in kind can be accounted for by a loss of information from the species original genetic code, information can be bred out of the genetic code on the farm by selective breeding and in the wild by natural selection. Evolution is distinctly different from variations in kind because instead of losing information it needs to find select and capture enormous amounts of new information to add to the genetic code’s data base and it cannot be demonstrated that Evolution has ever added even one tiny speck of information to the genetic code. Mutations are not the answer because mutations are always caused by damage to the genetic code which does not add any information, how could information be added to the genetic code by ripping out pages from it’s construction manual? Life and the genetic code arrived woven together in an intricate co-dependent partnership, life cannot exist without the genetic code’s information i.e. the instructions and commands contained in the genetic code’s data base. Without life the genetic code could not exist, had no reason to exist and without life it served absolutely no purpose whatsoever, it would be like a computer that could not be used because it had no power supply. The first advent of life may have appeared primitive and insignificant but it was an enormous multi faceted quantum leap that instantly transformed a world containing no information, no data bases, no alphabets, no languages, no communication systems and no life, to a world with all the above. Note that the first advent of life introduced the first alphabet, language and data base used by the genetic code via electrical and chemical communication systems to command the life form to develop step by step in very precise sequence and timing to maturity it is then commanded to reproduce itself to preserve the species. If you check Computer Science on Wikipedia or elsewhere it will inform you of the many complex interfacing factors that are needed to make a computer function and although computer technology is inferior it has very many basic parallels to the programming of the Genetic Code. Everyone knows computers did not invent themselves things like that can only be the result of premeditated plans of action from conscious intelligent sources. Likewise the Genetic Code could only be the result of a premeditated plan of action from a conscious intelligent Source endowed with omniscient and omnipotent abilities, meaning the Source of the genetic code and life had the knowledge to design them and also had the power to make them happen. It is extremely ridiculous to claim that the first life form equipped with an essential fully functioning version of the genetic code could have been accidently and simultaneously produced by lightening striking primordial soup. Scientists state that if the information contained in 1 pinhead of human DNA was written down in books and the books were made into 500 stacks, each stack would reach from the earth to the moon this is just one example of how the genetic code thoroughly outperforms by enormous orders of magnitude our very best computer technology. The possibility of the genetic code or computers being the result of a string of accidents or the result of inventing themselves or being invented by the blind forces of nature are exactly the same i.e. zero possibility.
