Gal 3:26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
Beware, on human terms the facts and conclusions written here are clearly an impossible coincidence, but the facts are also very difficult to dismiss. Assuming they are correct, they show us the works of God are more amazing than we can possibly imagine.
Galatians 3:26 is a good example verse that helps us see the theme associated with the Biblical number 29. This is the 29,129th Bible verse and one of only eleven verses that have a cross Bible verse number both starting and ending in 29. This article shows the strong association with this verse's text to the number theme for 29 which is prevalent in the verses numbering. The theme is determined by examining the similarity of the overall message running through each of a non-random set of selected verses.
Of the eleven similarly numbered 29*29 verses, the first is the 2929th Bible verse and the other ten are numbers 29n29 where n is one of the digits 0-9. Why is this significant? Because I believe I can show that a simple number pattern allows us to uncovers verses with very similar themes in the text. The ability to do this with a pattern across many different numbers helps demonstrate the method of selection is very unlikely to be contrived or an imagined one that fits a preconceived outcome.
Through this interesting verse set I'll attempt to show the Bible’s perfection by being able to take any number from 10 to 99 to find all verses that have a Bible verse number both starting and ending with that number. This is a single example using the number 29 and is amazing in itself, yet not intended to prove the concept. Instead, I share it so others can evaluate the concept and decide for themselves if they believe it is possibile. Hopefully you will see through these example verses how this might work consistently across all numbers (10-99) and may be strong evidence for an impossible depth of perfection found in God’s Word – the Bible is an astounding book.
THE EXAMPLE: Upon examining our example verse of Galatians 3:26 and the ten other similarly numbered verses, we find two different but closely related truths communicated by the text. First, that we are saved by the grace of Jesus and only through faith in him. Second, we are to be in subjection to Jesus to whom there is no distinction – we are saved by his mercy and nothing else. These reveal an aspect of the theme for the Biblical number 29 which research shows to have an even larger overall theme about the promised return of the messiah (not explained here). Number 29 is a number of Jesus return and this set of verses seems to be warning us of how he will judge each person when when this time comes.
Shown below is the full of the eleven verses that have Bible verse numbers starting and ending with 29. For the full text, consult your Bible as I’ve condensed them here to highlight the similarities of theme running through them. The verses do not all have the same message, but are strong in revealing the 29 theme because there are at least two number twenty-nines associated with each of their numbering. Observe the overall message of the text as well as the perfection in numbering. Rather than try and explain how all the verses relate to each other, I hope a quick examination reveals a surprising and consistent message that communicates more than I could hope to in words. Prior to each verse is the cross bible verse number showing the common association to the number 29.. What do you think these verses say?
