The Numerical Bible Vol. 1: Genesis to Deuteronomy


Loizeaux Brothers 1890–1903

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Grant’s volume on the Pentateuch begins with a comprehensive introduction to the nature and scope of his project. In it, he surveys the relationship between divine revelation and the numerical structure of the Bible. In this volume in particular, Grant explains the significance of the numbers in the Pentateuch—for example, the seven days of creation, the forty days of the flood, the twelve tribes of Israel—and attends to the symbolism of the narrative components in the story. Understanding the numerical structure of the first five books of the Bible constitutes an important first step in biblical interpretation, since the Pentateuch serves as the archetype of the rest of Scripture as much as it predicates God’s intentions for all of human history.
