Death and the Number Five

Published Date:

Many Bible students have noticed the connection in the Bible between the number five and the topic of death. For instance, a number of people in the Old Testament died after being stabbed under the fifth rib. Well, today's newspaper shows another connection. It reports that a Somalia sheikh has urged the execution of any Muslim who does not pray the required five times a day. Do your five prayers or face death. What a unique way to bring people closer to God! Such a sad reason to pray.
