    Greetings:

    What is the signficance of the use or symbolism of 3 in the bible? Jesus arose after 3 days, Peter denied Jesus 3 times, there are more but I cant remember the rest.

    Thanks

    The significance of 3 is that it comes right after 2 and just before 4. [​IMG]

    You truly have raised the literal reading of Scripture to something of an artform haven't you? ;) :D

    Father, Son, and Holyghost. Three but one God. Of him, Through him, To him. I believe the number three is quite complete.

    ...And let us not forget the "Baptist Sermon Mantra":

    1) Three Points,
    2) Poem,
    3) Prayer

    Almost makes one wonder how they managed to succeed as well as they did in the Book of Acts. :confused:

    After all, they had no "online NT," no "Uniform Standard Sunday School Lessons," no "Snappy Sentence Sermons," no "Sermon Outlines 'R' US,"
    etc. [​IMG]

    I guess all that they had was the Power of the Holy Spirit. [​IMG]

    What a concept!! [​IMG]

    And we all know that six was afraid of seven because seven eight nine.

    Yes, this should have been posted elsewhere - maybe the theology board :)

    BIC, check the link below for very detailed info on Bible numbers. The number 3 means Resurrection, Divine Completeness. Hope this helps you some.
