The Beast - Number of the Beast - Netflix

The Number of the Beast (Greek: Ἀριθμὸς τοῦ θηρίου, Arithmos tou Thēriou) is a term in the Book of Revelation, of the New Testament, that is associated with the Beast of Revelation in chapter 13. In most manuscripts of the New Testament and in English translations of the Bible, the number of the beast is 666. Papyrus 115 (which is the oldest preserved manuscript of the Revelation as of 2017), as well as other ancient sources like Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus, give the Number of the Beast as 616 (χιϛ), not 666; critical editions of the Greek text, such as the Novum Testamentum Graece, note 616 as a variant.

Gematria has also been used with the word Maometis (Ancient Greek: Μαομέτις); which scholars have described as a dubiously obscure Latinisation of a Greek transliteration of the Arabic name Muhammad. Kenneth Setton wrote that Muhammad was frequently calumniated and made a subject of legends taught by preachers as fact. For example, in order to show that Muhammad was the anti-Christ, it was asserted that Muhammad died not in the year 632 but in the year 666 – the number of the beast – in another variation on the theme the number “666” was also used to represent the period of time Muslims would hold sway of the land. In Quia Maior, the encyclical calling for the Fifth Crusade, Euthymius Zygabenus and Zonaras wrote the name as “Maometh” and Cedrenus wrote the name “Mouchoumet” none of which is the “Maometis” in question. A leading exponent of the Maometis interpretation was Charles Walmesley, the Roman Catholic bishop of Rama. Other proponents include Gilbert Genebrard, Francois Feuardent, and Rene Massuet, 16-17th-Century Catholic theologians. Maometis in Greek numerals totals 666: In the 1923 book The Number And Names Of The Apocalyptic Beasts, David Thom rejects “Maometis” as a valid translation, observing that “of the seven different ways in which Muhammad’s name is written in Euthymius and the Byzantine historians, not one is the orthography in question”. None of the given spellings add up to 666 under Greek gematria.
