The Meaning of Numbers: The Number 53

In 53 A.D. the Apostle Paul, after residing in Syrian Antioch for less than a year, embarks on his third missionary campaign. His travels, which begin in the summer, will take him to cities within the province of Galatia, as well as Antioch in Pisidia, Ephesus, Philippi, Berea, Thessalonica, Corinth, Troas and other destinations.

During his third journey, which runs from 53 to 58 A.D., Paul will write the books of 1 and 2Corinthians as well as Romans. During this evangelistic tour he will turn 53 years old in 55 A.D. His extensive travels finally end when he reaches Jerusalem before the day of Pentecost in 58.

Fools and the number 53

Written by King David, Psalm 53 gives us a true definition of a fool! It also reveals the real life consequences of humans refusing, despite the overwhelming evidence (Romans 1:19 - 22), to acknowledge God exists and deserves to be obeyed.

The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, and have worked out abominable wickedness; there is no one who does good.

God looked down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there were any who understand, who are seeking after God. Every one has turned away; they have altogether become corrupt; no one is doing good, no, not even one (Psalm 53:1 - 3).
