"The number seven is good, but we do not explain it after the doctrine of Pythagoras and the other philosophers, but rather according to the manifestation and division of the grace of the Spirit; for the prophet Isaias has enumerated the principal gifts of the Holy Spirit as seven.”The Church Fathers were not interested in philosophical speculation about numbers. However, they did wish to lift up the meaning of Scripture according to the tradition which they received, a tradition that Jesus Himself drew on; a Tradition rich in number symbolism, typology, and pattern. Perhaps Ambrose’s view takes into consideration the consistency of number symbolism throughout the Canon.

I recall that you were going to write one on subjects mentioned on the blog, was it published?
I'm very interested in the subject and would like to have that book and also hear critique of your work.
Maybe in near future a book covering some of these topics will appear in Eastern Europe written by me - it would be perfect if I could place some of your articles in footnotes, but they (articles) must be scholarly reviewed.
Abraham meets with Nebhepetre Mentuhotep II between c. 2061-2010 BC. Let's put the audience with the Egyptian king at about 2000 BC.
Horemheb's reign was c. 1306-1292 BC
The time from Abraham in Canaan to Joseph's rule in Egypt is between 600 and 700 years.
Substract 700 years from 2000 = 1300 BC. This corresponds within 6 years to the estimated time of Horemheb's reign.
