A good way for some to remember Bible facts and stories is to note how some numbers repeat themselves throughout the Bible. In many cases, the narrative in the Bible defines the meaning of numbers. In other cases, numbers are regularly associated with meaning. In all cases, it is important to remember that numbers do not determine doctrine. Rather, doctrine determines the truth illustrated by numbers.
