666 - The Number of the Beast

Since the time of Irenaeus, who was a contemporary with Polycarp, the disciple of John, the Apostle, the investigation of the number of the beast i.e. 666 has always been a subject deeply interesting though perplexing.

As the Number of a Man must necessarily imply the Name of a Man, John has made them coincident i.e occurring together.

That is to say, The Number of the Name of a Man.

The Name of a Man must not be sought after in the Hebrew or Latin Language, but in Greek, the language in which John wrote Revelation.
