Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing (epiphany) of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;  Titus 2:13

Thereupon we added the numeric value of the unsuspected Greek words and the numeric value of the suspected Greek words in v. 51: 20,923 + 2,298 = 23,221. This divided  by 7 = 3,317 2/7. This is in line with the thought that the suspected words are interpolations. Thereafter we added the numeric value of the unsuspected words of vs. 51, 54 and the suspected words in vs. 52 and 53: 20,923 + 16,227 = 35,304, which divided by 7 = 5,175 2/7, which shows vs. 52 and 53 to be interpolations. The interpolation of vs. 52 and 53 has for years been recognized, but here for the first time is proven so by numerics. The crucial test would be the total of the unsuspected words in the entire passage and the suspected words in vs. 51 and 54; for the suspected words in these two verses are inseparably interlinked. The numeric value of the suspected Greek words in v. 54 is 981. Hence 20,923 + 2,298 [as given in line 5 of this paragraph] + 981 = 24,202, which divided by 7 = 3,457 3/7. Hence the suspected words hitherto not known to be interpolations are hereby proven to be such. There is another possibility—that the suspected words in v. 54 are interpolations, but that the rest of the suspected words are not such. But this possibility was disproven by the numeric total of the passage minus the suspected words in v. 54: thus (as above) 39,506—981 = 38,525, which divided by 7 = 5,503 4/7. This disproves the thought that the whole passage as it stands, except the interpolated words of v. 54, is entirely genuine.

 

(106) Another set of considerations proves that the unsuspected parts of the whole passage form but one sentence, which is another way of proving that the suspected parts form no part of the genuine original; for every sentence of the genuine original is based upon Biblical numerics. Thus the numeric value of the unsuspected part of v. 51 is 8,038, which is not a multiple of 7. Hence that part is not a full sentence. Since the numeric value of the unsuspected part of v. 51

 

364

is 8,038, and of its suspected part is 2,298, their total is 10,336, which is not a multiple of 7. Therefore they do not form a complete sentence. Neither does the total numeric value of the unsuspected and suspected parts of vs. 51-53 form a multiple of 7, for 8,038 -+- 17,602 = 25,640, which is not a multiple of 7. Hence vs. 51-53 do not form one sentence. The first point that we presented above proves from the numerical value of all four verses that they do not form one sentence. From the data given as the last point of the preceding paragraph, we see that the omission of the suspected words in v. 54 does not result in the rest of the vs. 51-54 forming one sentence. The only other possibility is the omission of all the suspected parts of these four verses, and that possibility yields the following results: The numeric value of the unsuspected part of v. 51 is 8,038 and the numeric value of the other unsuspected words of this section (parts of v. 54) is 12,885. The total of the numerics of these two members is 20,923, which, as shown in the first paragraph, is not only a multiple of 7, but a multiple of 7 x 7 x 7. Accordingly, in the first place, Biblical numerics proves that no one sentence can be formed, harmonious with Biblical numerics, out of vs. 51-54, except by combining into one sentence the Greek words for the words that we have left unitalicized and unbracketed in our quotation of vs. 51-54 above. Thus, in the second place, Biblical numerics proves that the reference to the earthquake and the rending rocks, as well as vs. 52 and 53, in the passage of vs. 51-54, is an interpolation. Hence these involved words are no part of inspired Scripture, hence do not belong to the types of the sixth small or large wonderful day, and hence the Bible does not in the eight large wonderful days forecast the American Armageddon as coming before Oct., 1934. The mistaken forecast was based on the very natural assumption that the pertinent words were genuine Scripture, which Biblical numerics,

 

365

and now the fulfilled facts prove them not to be. This interpolation crept into the Bible before our oldest extant manuscripts of the Greek New Testament were written.

What kind of a situation has thereby been created? Did the Editor know of such a situation's being created at the time he made the forecasts? How was it doubtless arranged?
