Sea of Galilee (pt. 10)
This video is part of a series on the Sea of Galilee, but we are taking a detour to talk about another "triangle number" found in the book of Acts.
For more on triangle numbers - like 153 fish in John 21 - see Sea of Galilee part 8 and part 9:
Why does Luke include the number of crew members (276) aboard the ship that he and Paul are traveling on to Rome?
The number 276 happens to be a triangle number (the triangle of 23).
Additionally, there is a Hebrew phrase in Jeremiah 23:6 (also Jeremiah 33:16) that adds up to 276. The phrase is unique and speaks to the hope that we can place in God's promise of deliverance.
Join us for a deep dive into Luke's use of this number
