Do the “numbers” point to biblical passages?
OK, this has long eluded me… All the theory’s,etc… Then I was watching a repeat episode last night and a light came on.. What if the numbers point to a bible passage. So taking the numbers in order, 4 being a book. Well it has to be in old or new. There is not enough verses in the Old Testaments 4th book, so it has to be New… which just so happens to be the book of John…
John 8:15,16,23,42 (NIV): You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one. But if I do judge, my decisions are right, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me. But he continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but he sent me.
What was book 4 of the OLD testament? Numbers.
Made me think… hmmm…. (maybe this theory is out there already and I missed it LOL)
And to play it out just a bit further, there is a painting that Thomas (Aaron’s dad, Claire’s bf) did that ends up in Widmore’s office (http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/File:1×10-3×08-thomas-painting.jpg) has the numbers 1125 in the upper left. Those numbers are not part of “The Numbers”. But if you apply the above theory, you could conclude it points to Genesis (first book of the bible), Chapter 1, Verse 25: God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.(niv).
Again, if this is posted out somewhere else, I apologize for not giving proper credit. I just haven’t seen it anywhere and wanted to know what others thought?
And less we forget Flight 316 could easily be (and has been suggested as such) a reference to the Book oh John again, chapter 3, verse 16 (probably one of the most famous passages in the bible)…For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
There are other numbers scattered throughout Lost. I have been working on them taking it from this same perspective and I continue to find some interesting corolations… I will post more later but would love some input on this theory.
