666 - The Number's Pre-Rev. 13:18 Roots
This comes from the "Finally Making This Official" files. It's about
time, right?! Here goes:
Most people remain unaware that the first 2 references to 666 are
actually in the Old Testament of the Christian's Holy Bible.
From 1 Kings:
14. Now the weight of gold that
came to Solomon in one year was 666 talents of gold, 15 besides that
which came from the explorers and from the business of the merchants,

From 2 Chronicles:
13. Now the weight of gold that
came to Solomon in one year was 666 talents of gold, 14 besides that
which the explorers and merchants brought. And all the kings of Arabia
and the governors of the land brought gold and silver to Solomon.

the number "666" was a very well-known number in ancient times. It was
King Solomon's salary and it's highly likely that it wasn't some kind
of state secret. It's quite likely that it was well-known by the
general public and that the number didn't just come out of thin air.
And in fact, if you study what's written about King Solomon and compare
that to what Rev. 13 says, it's quite clear that they are talking about
someone with same type of power and wealth.
Rev. 13:18 --- "Here is wisdom.
Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it
is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and
"The number of a man" - the man
was King Solomon. 666 was his salary. 666 talents of gold. Simple as
Hope this helps!
