Meaning of Numbers: The Number 95

The possible meaning of the number 95 is derived from events both within and outside Scripture.

Martin Luther's 95 Theses, which would become the catalyst for the Protestant Reformation, is a list of criticisms he had against the Roman Catholic Church. In 1517 A.D., this list of 95 complaints, according to the Catholics, was nailed onto a door that served those attending university.

". . . Luther affixed to the castle church door, which served as the "black-board" of the university, on which all notices of disputations and high academic functions were displayed, his Ninety-five (95) Theses" (1913 Catholic Encyclopedia article on Martin Luther).

Luther's list delineated his disagreement with the church in regard to papal authority, the existence of purgatory and the selling of indulgences to name a few. Indulgences, which were sold by the clergy and open to abuse, allowed the purchaser to lessen their temporal punishment in purgatory after they died. This evil practice, which has no support in the Bible, is known as Simony (named after Simon Magus, Acts 8:9 - 24).

Appearances of the Number Ninety-Five

Sabbatical years (land Sabbaths) were commanded by God as a holy period designed to bring rest, renewal and rejuvenation to both the people and the land (Exodus 23:10 - 11, Leviticus 25:1 - 7, 19 - 23). These special periods took place every seventh year. The 15th Sabbatical year after the birth of Christ ran from September 19 (Saturday) in 95 A.D. to September 6 (Tuesday) in 96.

The book of Colossians, which was written by the Apostle Paul, numbers 4 chapters and 95 verses.

The Apostle John, in 95 A.D., is exiled to the island of Patmos by Roman Emperor Domitian. The last living apostle, during his stay, pens the book of Revelation. He leaves the island in 96 as part of Emperor Nerva's reparation program. He then travels to Ephesus where, until his death around 100 A.D., he finalizes and canonizing both the Old and New Testaments.

The Chaldean (Aramaic) word elahh (Strong's Concordance #H426) is written 95 times in the Old Testament's original languages. It is only used in the book of Daniel (51 times) followed by Ezra (43) and Jeremiah (1). The word is always translated as "God" in the King James Bible.

Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God (elahh) of heaven (Daniel 2:19, KJV).

The Hebrew word tahor (Strong's #H2889) is found 95 times in the Old Testament Hebrew. It occurs the most in Exodus (28 times) followed by Leviticus (21) then Numbers (8). The word is used to reference something that is physically, ceremonially or morally clean.

Of every clean (tahor) beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female (Genesis 7:2, KJV).

Number 95 and the Psalms

The book of Psalms, in the original Hebrew manuscripts, is divided into five sections. Psalm 95 is in the fourth section composed of chapters 90 through 106. It is in a section whose general theme is the millennial reign of Christ and shows Israel re-gathered after their ruin. The Psalm itself was written by priests who served under King David.

This Psalm praises God and extols the fact that he is far above any deity worshipped by the nations.

O come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise to Him with psalms, for the Lord is a great God and a great King above all gods (verses 1 - 3 of Psalm 95).

Verses 7 and 8 of this Psalm are also quoted by the Apostle Paul in Hebrews 4:7.

Seven Psalms are ascribed directly to David in the New Testament. They are Psalm 95 as well as songs 2, 16, 32, 41, 69 and 109.
