The sum of the two figures making up 77 is 14, or 2 x 7 feature 4. I think the answer can be found in one or more of the following I forget the source I have adapted these from: Consider for a moment a small sample of the evidence Panin advances for the inspiration of Scripture.
Why are so many of us taken in by these ideas? As a young man he participated in a movement to educate the under-classes, a movement which was labeled nihilism by observers from neighboring countries; the members of the movement merely called themselves revolutionaries. This led to his conversion to Christianityas attested to by his publication in of The Structure of the Bible: The search for secret codes in the Scriptures is not new; in the last century men ‘discovered’ hidden codes in the Greek and Hebrew text.
Perhaps he was not a brilliant mathematician after all. At the age of 22 he emigrated to the United States and entered Harvard Universitywhere he spent four years, picking up Greek and Hebrew, and graduating in with a Master of Literary Criticism.
Some Bible Reading Seminar material that is distributed to our students even promotes Panin’s pattern of sevens as evidence of the Bible’s inspiration. His emphasis on seven made his claims seem more believable because of the prominence of the number seven in the plain text of Scripture, especially in the book of Revelation. I was quite excited when I first heard about numeric and later Torah codes.
Even finding as many as twenty-five features in Genesis 1: It should not be applied indiscriminately to all events or else the results will be incorrect and misleading. For those who wish to bibpe their own or others’ writing for such signs of ‘inspiration’, a computer program is available on the Internet.

The answer is that he probably examined many more and reported only those that succeeded. This conversion occurred in when his attention was caught by the first chapter of John, in which the article “the” is used before “God” in one instance, and left out in the next: Shorter Works of Ivan Panin — 83 pages.
It was not about hidden Bible messages; rather it was about numerical patterns that he said permeated all the inspired Scripture paniin not other literature.

Probability theory says that the multiplication rule used by Panin is appropriate only for independent events coin tossing is a good example. English Language Bible Translators.
Once in Grace Always in Grace? Like the Bereans of old see Acts His findings have gained some acceptance in religious circles.
The doctrine of the divine authority of the Scriptures has always been fully sustained by the proofs from fulfilled prophecy, from the inexhaustible depths of truth revealed, from its matchless power over the lives of paniin, from its indestructibility and from the testimony of Numericd Christ, the Son of God.
Only 1 of the 14 7 x 2 light bulbs in the room was burning feature 4. It settles disputes of long standing as to some portions which scholars have said should be eliminated from the Bible. This paper is the text of a speech delivered by Ivan Panin at Caxton Hall in Westminster England that illustrates the mathematical and numeric interrelationship of all Scripture.
During this time Mr. In Panin sent a letter to bibe New York Sun challenging his audience to disprove his thesis that the numerical structure of scripture showed its divine origin. Not a page, paragraph or sentence in the whole Bible, he said, fails to show elaborate numeric designs.
No one I know would consider this analysis to be a convincing argument, ppanin Panin’s analysis of Bible numerics has much in common with the above. His lectures were delivered in colleges and before exclusive literary clubs in many cities of the United States and Canada.

A desire by those who believe the Bible is inspired for additional ammunition to convince unbelievers. The booklet The Wonderful Numberer claimed that Dr Panin numerixs a brilliant mathematician who had spent the greater part of his life compiling mathematical concordances and writing many papers on the subject. Those who attend our Bible Seminars deserve better proof of inspiration than Panin’s sevens or the Bible codes.
Surely Paul would have mentioned the use of Bible numerics to Timothy if it were of any value. A lack of tools to investigate it ourselves-in this case a lack of knowledge of Hebrew and Greek, and likely a weak background in probability theory.
