As a theologian and math nerd, I take an interest in people’s beliefs concerning numbers. I took a special interest in this topic after watching a German movie called 23, in which the main character was obsessed with the number 23.
Upon further analysis, I came across some film viewers who claimed that 23 was an evil number. This got me thinking, and I decided to conduct more research.
I spent several months reading online articles and numerology books to find out whether this number is evil. I even consulted a few theology professors to get more insights into what the Bible says about the number 23.
Interestingly enough, in an online forum last Sunday, someone started a discussion on the number 23. One member said that they heard this number is evil and wanted to know whether it is true.
Another one asked what the number 23 symbolizes. Since I had researched the topic, I was excited to share my findings with them.
The productive discussion inspired me to write this article to share my knowledge on this topic and answer those who have the same question.
So, is 23 an evil number?
The Bible does not clearly state whether number 23 is an evil number or not. While some people view 23 as any other number, others speculate it is evil. Those who view it as evil suggest that it symbolizes death since Genesis 23 is based on the death of Abraham’s wife, Sarah. Others posit that this number is evil since when you divide the individual numbers, you get .6666, which is believed to be a sign of the devil.
I invite you to join me in this article as we examine the number 23. Keep reading to discover what number 23 is believed to symbolize, whether it is the most evil number, and much more!
What does the number 23 symbolize?
Some spiritual people believe that 23 is a powerful number that combines the energies of numbers 3 and 2. They speculate that the number 3 symbolizes perception, support, imagination, realization, hope, and eloquence.
On the other hand, number 2 is believed to symbolize responsibilities, tact, stability, and teamwork. Those with this school of thought believe that when these two numbers are combined to form 23, they symbolize humanity, contradiction, magnetism, and expression.
Since this book is believed to sing of God’s guidance and abundant blessings, the number 23 is believed to symbolize protection.
What makes 23 the most evil number?
Some speculate that 23 is the most evil number because the most evil woman in the Bible is mentioned 23 times.
1st Kings 8:13 says that Jezebel killed the prophets of the Lord. According to the Bible, she is not only a murderer but also an enemy of the Lord and a prostitute.
According to some people, the number 23 is the most evil because dividing its individual digits 2 and 3 gives you 0.666. People suggest that 666 is the sign of the devil.
Why is 23 an unlucky number?
While some people believe that 23 is a sign of good fortune, others view it as a sign of bad luck. Since adding the individual digits of this number equals to 5, the 23 enigma is regarded as a result of the Laws of Five.
In these works, the number 23 is considered strange, sinister, lucky, or unlucky.
Some people believe that if 23 is your birth date or life path number, you tend to avoid responsibilities and waste your talents.
They also suggest that if you are connected to this number, you struggle to control your nervous thoughts.
What does the angel number 23 mean?
According to some people, angel number 23 means you should approach life with a cheerful mindset and confidence to achieve happiness and stability.
They also speculate that this angel number means you should try to assist others.
Others believe that if you keep seeing angel number 23, it is a divine message from the angels. They posit that the angels are telling you to make your life a heavenly place.
According to some, this angel number also means the divine angels protect you.
Though there are many interpretations of the number 23, 1st Timothy 4:7 warns us against believing in silly myths. As Christians, we should not focus so much on the symbolism of the number 23 but rather train ourselves for godliness.
