666 is more than a number.
It’s almost December 12th, which worries many number fetishists. 12/12/12. So it would be the Apocalypse. On the other hand, for the 666, it is more than a number. It is a certainty.
Nothing to do with I do not know what Mayan prophecy, or the rantings of the enlightened. So much so that in the United States, these three numbers 666 written on a CD may be enough to have it banned from sale by certain supermarket chains.
To understand, let’s go back to the source: the Bible. Precisely in the Apocalypse, according to St John. Chapter 13, verse 18: “Let him that hath understanding calculate the number of the Beast. For it is a man’s number, and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.”
The letters of the Hebrew alphabet contain creative power
The Bible does not specify that this number is the sum of the numerical values linked to the letters. According to the tradition of Kabbalah, the letters of the Hebrew alphabet contain creative power. In his work The Devil (Plon), Jacques Duquesne details: “A dragon and two Beasts represent the evil world. The first BeastBeast is a monster with ten horns and seven heads. The second is more misleading. It is a question of a false prophet. It is in truth the cult of the Roman emperor that it is a question. The number of this BeastBeast indicates the author is 666. “
Jesus spoke in Aramaic, but the Apocalypse is written in common Greek, with syntactic forms borrowed from Hebrew. Duquesne explains: “The numerical value is assigned to each letter in both Greek and Hebrew: the number of a name is the total of its letters — 666 would thus mean, in Hebrew, Caesar-Nero, and Greek, Caesar-God. “
