Mark of the Beast - 666 or is it 616 or 665

Revelation 13:18 (King James Version)
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Some old versions of Rev 13:18 do not show 666 but 616 and 665.
KJV spells out the number but in the Greek it is actually shown as Greek numbers.
I understand Irenaeus knew about these other numbers and rejected them in favour of it being 666.

This is discussed in these links

666 wrong number of prophetic beast?

Number of the Beast - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and Wiki has a lot more links

The Other Number of the Beast: numerology

The interpretation using numbers corresponding to letters has always come up with strange results. I remember around 1989 it was Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev depending on language and how you used his name such as in Russian it had to be Mikhail S Gorbachev.

In the other articles they talk about Nero and having to call him Neron and that it could have meant Caligula etc etc

And not many people know this verse in the Old Testament
1 Kings 10:14-22 "Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was 666 talents of gold".

Disabled Equipment

We wanted a over the toilet stand for Joan and tried to find Independent Living Centre which we thought were at Victoria Rd Ryde - founds lots of references to them but the number turns out to be an Indian restaurant So obviously they have moved. These websites that list places but never get updated are no help.
By the Way this was written Jul7 2008 just in case links don't work.

Anyhow they are at Parramatta ring Reception 02 9890 0940 and Katrina was very helpful and gave us a list of equipment and were to buy. And sent a PDF to my email. Very professional
Here is their real website
Independent Living Centre NSW - Contact

Katrina included
Mobility Options - wholesalers & discounters of quality rehabilitation equipment
who are at Pennant Hills and easy to visit - parking underneath - and had just what we wanted at a very good price.
