FIVE IS FOUR PLUS ONE / Personal Project
The number 5 in the Bible is significant because his creation, the ‘man’ has five fingers, five senses and five toes. Thus it is the number of God’s grace. There are five great mysteries: Father, Son, Spirit, Creation and Redemption. After the fall of man creation was cursed and it became subject to vanity. So man and creation needed to be redeemed therefore number 5 is the number of God’s grace. The number five may also speak of the inability of man and his weakness as only when ‘man’ is weak does he needs God’s Grace. As only if a man is incapable, he would require God’s Grace.
