The study of the numbers and its related meaning in the Bible scripture to that of the God's parables, allegories, and stories is generally called as Bible numerology. It considers both primary and emblematic understanding of the numbers which keeps recurring. When we consider both the Greek and the Hebrew numerology with the Bible numerology.
We should know that the later has both numbers and letters for our script whereas the former ones have only letters. Though the Greeks and the Hebrews don't have numbers but still they can have a numeric value to each letter or each word calculated by the gematria method of numerology.
Let us consider the word "iasous" which means Jesus in Greek. As gematria assigns a numeric equivalent to each letter, the word "iasous" is assigned the following where i = 10 a = 8 s = 200 o = 70 u = 400 s = 200 The number 40 is very much significant in the Bible for about 40 days Jesus was in the desert and for 40 years the Israelites aimlessly wandered in the desert and the days in between Jesus' resurrection and his ascension was exactly 40 (Acts 1:3).Similarly the number 7 is also said to be very important in the Bible for it is God's number ( Genesis 7:2-4; Revelation 1:20; 4:5; 5:1, 5:6).So each number is said to have some relation with the Bible.
Daniel and Revelation which are supposed to be a good predictive books or part of the Bible teach a system of numerology which is tough and related to each other showing some definite pattern. Thus Bible numerology is said to deal with the meaning if each number in the Holy book, Bible.Just like other distant past religions and set of theories and philosophies which events associated with numbers, the Biblical numerology also talks about the belief of the Judeo-Christian in the numbers with the bible. Though the cogency of the bible numerology is still being argued about in different parts of the word for the fact some people try to give too much of importance to the numbers and finding a meaning which has no association thus making no sense.
