What Does 123 Mean In the Bible?

When we think of numbers, we typically first think of math! Numbers, of course, are essential to quantifying information and objects. However, this is not the only purpose that numbers have, though it is their primary function. Numbers can have symbolism and special significance, too!

They appear often with special meanings attached to them in a number of places, from classic literature to the text of the Bible. For the purposes of this article, we will be discussing religious and biblical significance. An example of one of these biblically significant numbers is the number 123. There are a few different ways that the number 123 appears and can be interpreted or translated. 

Read on to learn more about the number 123 and its relation to the Christian Bible, specifically, its significance and its appearance in the text as well. 

Meaning of 123 In the Bible

First things first, if you have come across the number 123, you may be wondering what it means, or if it has some special meaning in the Bible. The answer is that the number 123 does have a biblical meaning!

Typically, 123 can be interpreted in the context of the Bible to be symbolic of the Holy Trinity. The Holy Trinity, of course, is made up of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit. The 1, the 2, and the 3 all represent one part of the Holy Trinity separately. When put together into the 123 formations, they represent the Holy Trinity as a whole.

It is as if the number 123 is counting off the parts of the Holy Trinity one by one. Some numbers do not not appear in the Bible but still have biblical significance. However, this is not the case for the number 123. Read on below to learn more about the number as it appears in the Christian Bible. 

Appearances of 123 In the Bible

As we mentioned above, the number 123 does appear in the Bible. Not all numbers do, after all! It does not appear very many times in the Christian Bible, only occurring 3 times. For instance, one of the times we see the number 123 is in the Psalms. There is a Psalm 123. Psalm 123 is called A Song of Ascents, which was one of the songs that pilgrims sung on their way to Jerusalem. They’re meant to give us a pattern of preparation before meeting with God and His people. Another interesting fact is that the occurrences of all numbers that are 39 or higher in the New Testament can be added together to get the number 123. 

Significance of 123 In the Bible

As we have mentioned above, the number 123 is symbolic of the Holy Trinity, comprised of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This is its biblical significance and is important for additional understanding of the text of the Bible. 123 occurs in some interesting ways throughout the Bible or in relation to the Church.

For example, Jesus Christ appeared to Madeleine Aumont in the late 1900s in a small village in Low Normandy. He told her that they must build a Glorious Cross, and the arms of the Cross must be 123 meters across. The height of the Cross must be 123 meters x 6 meters. This Cross can be interpreted further to be symbolic of Jesus’ sacrifice and the Holy Trinity, due to these measurements.
