The "Mark Of The Beast" And The Number "666"

A querist asks, “I was wondering what you could tell me about the meaning of the number 666 and the mark of the beast. I know Revelation is apocalyptic and symbolic, so the meaning of this is not microchips, bar codes, etc.”

Regarding the “mark of the beast” and the “number 666,” this writer fully understands that there are several “views” regarding these two subjects, and would be amiss to adamantly state that the following “view,” is the only view.

As in every interpretation presented, we should always have the “readiness of mind” (as the noble Bereans) to “search the scriptures daily” to “see whether these things are so” (Acts 17:11).

With this understanding in mind, let us proceed with this short study here.
