The Inspiration of the Scriptures Scientifically Demonstrated

by Ivan Panin

Letter to the New York Sun
The first 17 verses of the New Testament contain the genealogy of the Christ
Let us examine the first part of this genealogy
multiple of seven
this part of the genealogy is constructed on an elaborate design of sevens
Let us not turn to the genealogy as a whole
try to write some 300 words intelligently like this genealogy, and reproduce some numeric phenomena of like designs
The second part of this chapter, verses 18-25, relates the birth of Christ
The second chapter of Matthew tells of the childhood of the Christ
with each additional paragraph the difficulty of constructing it increases not in arithmetical but in geometrical progression
how did Matthew know, when designing this scheme for these words (whose sole characteristic is that they are found nowhere else in the New Testament) that they would not be found in the other 26 books?
the Gospel of Mark shows the very same phenomena
Matthew surely wrote after Mark, and Mark just as surely wrote after Matthew
Luke presents the same phenomena as Matthew and Mark; and so does John, and James, and Peter, and Jude, and Paul
it can in the same way be shown that each of the 27 New Testament books was written last
To this letter several replies appeared in the Sun, but not a single answer
