The Meaning of Numbers: The Number 130
The possible meaning of the number 130 is derived from Biblical and secular history.
Adam, at the age of 130, has Seth. This was the son his mother Eve felt was given her to replace her murdered son Abel. Adam would go on to live to age 930 (Genesis 5:3 - 5).
And Adam knew (had sex with) his wife again, and she bore a son and called his name Seth, for she said, "God has appointed me another seed in place of Abel, whom Cain killed" (Genesis 4:25, HBFV).
The influence of the Maccabees, who fought for Judea's independence then later ruled the people, ran about 130 years from 167 to 37 B.C. It was in 37 B.C. that Herod the Great, with the backing of Rome, conquered Jerusalem.
King David and his men battle the Philistines an astonishing thirteen times (1Samuel 17, 18:17 - 27, 19:8, 23:1 - 5, etc.). His victories destroy their ability to make war (1Chronicles 18:1) for at least 130 years.
Appearances of Number One Hundred Thirty
Jehoiada the High Priest was 130 years old when he died (2Chronicles 24:15). He is noteworthy for hiding baby Joash when Judah's Queen Athaliah sought to purge all males of royal blood (2Chronicles 22).
Jehoiada, when Joash turned seven, succeeded in overthrowing the evil queen and having him rightfully placed on the throne (2Kings 11). Jehoiada's godly service earned him the rare privilege of burial among Judah's kings in Jerusalem (2Chronicles 24:16).
The Herodian dynasty begins when Herod the Great is appointed King of Judea by the Roman Senate in 40 B.C. Herod Agrippa II, the great-grandson of Herod the Great, rules various parts of his grandfather's kingdom until he dies around 92 A.D. His death ends the Herodian dynasty that roughly lasted 130 years.
Migration and the Number 130
The patriarch Jacob was 130 years old when he and sixty-six family members migrated to Egypt (Genesis 46:1 - 47:9). Their migration is caused by a severe famine that struck the land of Canaan. They travel to the country at the behest of Joseph who is Egypt's second most powerful person. Jacob, upon arrival in the country, is introduced to Pharaoh.
And Joseph brought in Jacob his father and set him before Pharaoh. And Jacob blessed Pharaoh. And Pharaoh said to Jacob, "How many are the years of your life?" And Jacob said to Pharaoh, "The years of my pilgrimage are a hundred and thirty years. Few and evil have been the years of my life . . . (Genesis 47:7 - 9, HBFV).
Jacob, renamed Israel by God, will live to the ripe old age of 147.
