"And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast , or the number of his name . Here is wisdom. Let him thathath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man ; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six ." -Revelation 13:17-18,
Pope John Paul II is the very first Pope in history to actually fulfill this prophecy two fold. As you will soon see below, there are many 'names' to the office of Pope Each of these names do in fact have a numeric value simply because LATIN, the chosen language of Rome, is not only their ALPHABET, it is also their NUMERIC SYSTEM! To this day the Latin "Numeric System"is called, ROMAN NUMERALS . For example, in their alphabet, the letter "I" = 1, and the letter "C" = 100 in Latin.
IOANES PAVLVS SECVNDO
(John Paul II)
(John) IOANES = 1
(Paul)PAVLVS = 60
(II)SECVNDO = 605
-T o t a l-1 + 60 + 605 = 666
