A Date for the Apocalypse – 

A bishop, John Chrysostom, is the writer according to the astronomer Nikolai Alexandrovich Morozov who sets the date as 395.  At this time five of the seven dynasties of Rome had fallen.  Chrysostom was in Ephesus at the end of the fourth century.  Would he not look for evidence of the most famous book of the bible?  Was Chrysostom the third John of the Apocalypse?

A Beginning – 

A start, a date, a year, a number.  666  Look for number in Daniel.  It refers to years.  So what happened in the year 666?  Nothing.  Historians are careful about that year.  Dating is difficult without a calendar.  A date is the most common mark on a product.  Its origin.  So what started in 666?  What calendar should we use?

A Mark – 

A beginning.  A date is the most common mark on any product sold today.  Consider 666 as a mark or a date.  What happened in that year?  What calendar?  The Gregorian started in 1582 or the Julian starting at 44 BC or the Islamic calendar starting in 622?  Consider them all.

A Color – 

A guide to interpretation.  You can trust numbers and maybe colors to be reliably translated.  Not so much with the other words.  The “words of God” are seen differently by the many different bible translators.  Who can you trust?  Historians.  What can you trust?  Maybe numbers.  Historians may have trouble with dates but they do get close enough.

A Dating Tool – 

A common year.  666 of the Gregorian calendar, which didn’t start until 1582, will be a different year in a different calendar.  The common year for the Julian calendar was 44 BC.  622, the year of the Hijra, would be 666 in the Julian calendar.  That does require a calculation and not a count as stated in some bibles.
