For many, the number Biblical number of 666 has brought about wild speculation and movie fantasy. According to the last book in the Bible, 666 is the number, or name, of the wild beast with seven heads and ten horns that comes out of the sea. Is this beast literal?

No. It's metaphorical or fictional NOT literal.

@tsarstepan,
Thanks tsarstepan. Doing some research it would appear that This beast is a symbol of the worldwide political system, which rules over “every tribe and people and tongue and nation.” (Revelation 13:7) And that the name 666 identifies the political system as a gross failure in God’s sight.

Who asked him, anyway? He needs to keep his honking proboscis out of our business. "Fee will" and all of that, you know.

It's not 666, it's 616.

Quote:
In 2005, however, a fragment of papyrus 115 was revealed, containing the earliest known version of that part of the Book of Revelation discussing the Number of the Beast. It gave the number as 616, suggesting that this may have been the original.

Wow! We had highway 666 from Gallup to Shiprock, NM. It was called the Devil's Highway, so we changed the number - for NOTHING.

@anthony1312002,
Easy.

What does '666' mean to you?

And, understanding it's 'eyecatching' device - How can it be used 'against' you?

Others - 11.11 - 12 - 144000 - 322 - 007 - 13 - 911 - 999.

Think about it - ............ FOREVER.......

Or Not.

@InfraBlue,
You are correct. 616 is the 'concordance' translation.
This knowledge, now, reinforces '666' as 'relevant' - And adds a 'doubt' on one aspect of 'bollux' - Giving credence to another.

You need to watch 'Samadhi' - Movies - 1&2.

@tsarstepan,
Providing further evidence that this number is symbolic of political entities, note what verses 16 & 17 say in chapter 13 or Revelation: "16 It puts under compulsion all people—the small and the great, the rich and the poor, the free and the slaves—that these should be marked on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 and that nobody can buy or sell except a person having the mark, the name of the wild beast or the number of its name.

Clearly, this not being able to buy or sell is unless one gives support to this wild beast physical in nature and relates to everyday activity. This is in line with the Bible's using beast to represent various human rulerships. Take for example the he-goat of Daniel’s prophecy represented the Grecian (or Greco-Macedonian) World Power. (Da 8:5-8, 21) Concerning this The Imperial Bible-Dictionary (edited by P. Fairbairn, London, 1874, Vol. I, p. 664) observes: “It is interesting to know that this [the goat] was the recognized symbol of their nation by the Macedonians themselves. Monuments are still extant in which this symbol occurs, as one of the pilasters of Persepolis, where a goat is depicted with one immense horn on his forehead, and a Persian holding the horn, by which is intended the subjection of Macedon by Persia” (something accomplished by the Persians toward the close of the sixth century B.C.E.).

Thus the wild beast having the name 666 is indeed not literal but symbolic of human rulership and it's efforts to control the masses.
