WARNING ON BIBLE “NUMERICS” AND “THEOMATICS” By Marcia Montenegro There are many false ideas that are given credibility, such as Ivan Panin’s Bible. Dr. Panin, who passed away in October, , after 50 years of work on Bible numerics, was not the first to discover that there was a strange mathematical. Ed.) Ivan Panin. Bible Numerics, as it is known and practiced today, is indissolubly connected with the name of Ivan Panin of Aldershot, Ontario, who made.

Ivan Panin I first heard of codes and patterns to be found in the Bible about thirty years ago when a young brother handed me a booklet called The Wonderful Numberer.
Since Panin had so many features of seven to choose from, he could always persist until he had found his self-imposed ten features of seven.

However, if the comma is placed after “today” there is no pattern, enabling Panin to say that the comma must be placed after “thee”. Long before the computer made finding complex patterns of letters numercs, Panin searched the Scriptures looking for patterns of sevens.
Ivan Panin Bible Numerics – Numerical Patterns In Scripture, Chance, Or Design?
Books about Bible Numerics Not by Mr. Unfortunately, whilst computer programs have made it relatively ivaan for anyone to search the Scriptures for hidden ‘meanings’, the plain text of Scripture is receiving less and less attention by the world at large.
The booklet The Wonderful Numberer claimed that Dr Panin was a brilliant mathematician who had spent the greater part of his life compiling mathematical concordances and writing many papers on the subject.
This led to his conversion to Christianityas attested to by his publication in of The Structure of the Bible: A lack of the necessary time to investigate in depth what we hear about, and a feeling that there are better ways to spend our time.
This tract ;anin the works of Ivan Panin and is a nice introductory summary for sharing with those interested in the subject of the title or as a witnessing tract.
Some Problems With Bible Codes
The Gospel of the Kingdom — by Ivan Panin — 32 pages. Consider for a moment a small sample of the evidence Panin advances for the inspiration of Scripture. This is a good summary that was published to the readers of the Sun in A paper addressing the question of Dispensationalism. Thereafter, until his death inhe devoted over 50 years of his life to painstakingly exploring the numerical structure of the Scriptures, generating over 43, hand-penned pages of analysis.

Since every Greek and Hebrew letter carries a numerical value letters being used for figures in these languagesevery word, phrase, sentence and paragraph has a definite arithmetical sum. The answer is that he nummerics examined many more and reported only those that succeeded. Chronicles of Narnia Books and Movies: Yet in reality the large number of sevens was not all that impressive, since finding ten features of seven or its multiples, 14, 21, 28, etc.
By giving a great prominence to their ‘successes’ they bibe convinced some that the improbable has nukerics. Panin, therefore, gave much time to the examination of other writings failing to find such phenomena. By placing the comma after “thee”, Panin finds an unusual pattern of sixes, elevens and nineteens in the phrase, “today thou shalt be with me in paradise”.
Panin demonstrated, either that every writer of Scripture was an unparalleled literary and mathematical genius, or that he wrote as he pannin moved by the Holy Ghost. During this time Mr. Some Bible Reading Seminar material that is distributed to our students even promotes Panin’s pattern ivqn sevens as evidence of the Bible’s inspiration. Although at first it may have seemed that there was something special about what was found, numerice closer study shows that there is really not much to it.
However, this example is even more extensive because Panin persists in examining it until he has discovered twenty-five features some rather exotic involving seven or a multiple of seven.
While Panin spoke highly of the edition of Westcott and Hort of the New Testamentnumeics found their textual criticism wanting and was obliged to produce his own critical text. At the age of 22 he emigrated to the United States and entered Harvard Universitywhere he spent four years, picking up Greek and Hebrew, and graduating in with a Master of Literary Criticism.
This was followed in by a “Second Edition, Revised”. This paper shows that the Hebrew Old Testament is constructed of a numeric design running through every conceivable detail. This work by Karl Sabiers is a biography and exposition of the discoveries made by Ivan Panin including examples, how they were discovered, how they numeeics the Bible is a God breathed Book, and how the discoveries affect the reader.
Subsequently he found that the Hebrew text of the Old Testament had similar structure. Click here to view our Mission Statement.
Panln this is unwise when there is much better evidence provided in prophecy, or even in the obvious consistency of Scripture doctrinal teaching. In other projects Wikisource.
Panin, however, by giving his very life to the task, to find that every letter of the Hebrew and Greek manuscripts is numbered and occupies its own special place in the order of the total number of letters in the Bible, the slightest variations of numercs being all God ordained.
The booklet was a summary of bibke work of Ivan Panin, who had concluded that what he pnain found in the Bible proved that it was Divinely inspired.
It was not about hidden Bible messages; rather it was about numerical patterns that he said permeated all the inspired Scripture but not other literature. Thus what Panin perceives to be irrefutable evidence for inspiration because of the low probability of the features he identifies is not nearly as irrefutable as he would have us believe.
Moreover, Numericss warns the reader that there are many pitfalls into which the inexperienced handler of Bible numerics is likely to fall; in particular, to verify any but the simplest of features requires the authentic Greek text that Panin himself published in and titled The Numeric Greek New Testament.
Bible Numerics: The Works of Ivan Panin
I think the answer can be found in one or more of the following I forget the source I have adapted these from: This time in Russia saw many of the upper classes leaving their luxurious homes to go to the factories and teach the less fortunate, for which efforts they were tortured, often to the point of paniin or numeric. In reality, with so many possibilities the unusual is certain to occur.
Objections to the Method Eventually Panin’s research led him to claim that numerics as he called it was capable of establishing that any passage of Scripture was inspired. Perhaps he was not a brilliant mathematician after all. If you are one who believes that you have invisible, immortal soul that flies off on the wings of angels to heaven when you die, then this is undoubtedly the ‘right’ answer.
Mathematically, the probability of these three features occurring together is 1 that is, the result is certain to occurbecause the other two features must follow if the number is The Seven Pattern in Greek The patterns, or features, which Panin discovered in Scripture involved chiefly the number seven.
