What is so special about “70 x 7,” the factor that emerges in many parts of the Bible through calculation with the Sower’s numbers (30-60-100 or 100-60-30)?

I like the answer I’ve come up with in my post on Pαscαl’s Triangle (side-bar).

But here is another clue I’ve found: When 70 x 7 or 490 (or even 49) is the divisor, the decimal fraction that results has some number sequences that seem magical. ** Each number is twice the previous number!!! ** For example: 06 12 24 48.

Could the ancients have been fixated on such things??

The decimal results obtained by dividing certain numbers by 81 (the number set for Ezekiel temple measurements) is also interesting. The result is eight consecutive numbers in sequence that repeat. For example: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 or 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2.

But how could the ancients know of it without a 34-place Windows calculator?

Ten examples follow:

DIVIDING BY 490

__Example one__: 1 / 490 =

0.00204081632653061224489795918367

Sequence is 02 04 08 16 32 or 20 40; then 3 06 12 24 48 or 22 44; then 9 18 36

*Each number is twice the previous number!!!*

This only seems to work with whole numbers (integers)

__Example two__: 55/490 =

0.11224489795918367346938775510204

Sequence is 12 24 48 or 11 22 44; then 9 18 36; then 1 02 04 or 5 10 20

Each twice previous

__Example three__: 99/490 =

0.20204081632653061224489795918367

Sequence is 02 04 08 16 32 or 20 40; then 3 06 12 24 48 or 22 44; then 9 18 36

Each twice previous

__Example four__: 1260 / 490 =

2.5714285714285714285714285714286

Sequence is 7 14 28 (repeats)

Each twice previous

A number divisible by 7 will have that pattern or similar when divided by 490

__Example five__: 27 / 490 =

0.05510204081632653061224489795918

Sequence is 5 10 20 40 or 1 02 04 08 16 32; then 3 06 12 24 48; then 9 18

Each twice previous

SUMS OF DECIMALS

__Example six__:

Sum of (100 / 490) + (30 / 490) + (60 / 490) =

0.38775510204081632653061224489796

Sequence is 5 10 20 40 or 1 02 04 08 16 32; then 06 12 24 48 or 22 44 or 4 8

This ability to sum the decimals and still get the same sort of “doubling” holds for at least one other example. Likewise for subtracting one decimal result from another (based on examples not shown).

DIVIDING BY 81

__Example seven__: 10/ 81 =

0.12345679012345679012345679012346

Notice the sequence of eight consecutive numbers: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7; then repeats

Each number is one more than the previous number

__Example eight__: Likewise for numbers in intervals of 10 + 9n, divided by 81; for example, 10 + 9 = 19; then

19 / 81 =

0.23456790123456790123456790123457

Notice the sequence 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7; then repeats

__Example nine__: a reverse sequence of eight consecutive numbers

8 / 81 =

0.09876543209876543209876543209877

Notice the sequence 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2; then repeats

Each number is one less than the previous number

__Example ten__: Likewise for numbers in increments of 8 + 9n, divided by 81; for example, 8 + 9 = 17;

17 / 81 =

0.20987654320987654320987654320988

Notice the sequence 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2; then repeats

Each one less than previous

I arrived at similar conclusions about Joseph Caiaphas, though by a different route. Would you incidentally like a free copy of ‘The lost narrative of Jesus’, not out until end April?
