Math and the Bible

Math and the Bible

Pi day isn’t about eating pies although you might have wanted to have one to celebrate on March 14th. It’s a day to celebrate math and numbers. Pi is a ratio between a circle’s circumference (distance around the edge) and its diameter (distance across the middle). Circles and numbers are all around you.

Numbers are also in the Bible. Jesus had twelve disciples, fasted for forty days (that’s why we have forty days of Lent), named the two greatest commandments, and is part of the triune God (3 persons in one God).

Look at a few number facts that make life great:

 

  • God subtracts all your sins (down to zero) when you confess and ask for forgiveness.

 

  • He multiplied bread to feed many (John 6) and can still perform miracles.

 

  • He measures according to your giving (Luke 6:38, Malachi 3:10) to give you an equal return or more.

 

  • He divided waters (Exodus 14).

 

  • The angels rejoice when one person turns to God and believes (Luke 15:10)

Enjoy a day that celebrates numbers and have a piece of pie too!
