New Number for the Beast?

Say what? “It’s time to subtract 50 from the mark of the beast.”

“That’s according to a team of scholars whose analysis of a third-century Greek version of the New Testament, the oldest surviving copy of the text, has discovered that the Antichrist’s number in the Book of Revelation is not 666 but 616. A University of Birmingham (the British version) professor told The Independent that the number is a thinly veiled reference to Caligula, an early Roman emperor who was big on cruelty but low on sanity.” –from Red State Diaries Blog
