I really don't think that 666 could stand for Jesus Christ. 777 is the perfect number so that is more likely.

666 is the number of The Beast, 668 is the neighbor of the beast. Is Jesus the neighbor of the devil????

I have studied many biblical subjects from creation to the end times, but this is one article could cause many things I've considered truths to be turned on its ear...more specifically the "mark of the beast". If you can bear with the article, there is startling evidence that 666=Jesus Christ. If you study the Bible, then you will understand the need to use the original manuscripts. In this case, the New Testament was written in Greek and Aramaic.
"...the number of his name is six hundred three score and six..."

Jesus, Satan, or both?
The following will no doubt upset many naive Christians, but if anyone wishes to indulge in Christian lore, the image of Jesus and God has an amazing twist that few Christians realize or want to think about. It begins from two incredible verses from the Old Testament :
AND Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.
-I Chronicles 21:1
AND again the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he moved David against them to say, Go, number Israel and Judah.
-II Samuel 24:1
Either the above examples give evidence for a grand error (or fiction) in the Bible or else we have Satan and the Lord as the same entity! Also from the Old Testament we have the revelation of the creator of evil:
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
-God in Isaiah 45:7
How many Christians realize God as the creator of evil? And if you believe that Jesus equals God in the flesh, then Jesus must also hold responsibility for the creation of evil. (See also evil and good from God: Lamentations 3:38-39)
Now here comes an even more shocking Bible realization: the name "Lucifer" (another name for Satan) means light bearer, or morning star.
On the very last page of the Bible Jesus reveals himself and provides the amazing kicker ending of the entire "Holy" Bible:
I am the root and offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
And the very last words of Jesus in the Bible, makes it the greatest and longest lived lie of all time (something only a devil would say):
Surely, I come quickly.
Perhaps the reader will now understand why some Satanist cults use the same Bible as the Christians.
Note: The idea of the name Lucifer as synonymous with Satan goes back for centuries. In Isaiah 14:12, St. Jerome, translated the Hebrew word for "morning star" into the Latin term "Lucifer" (light bearer), a name commonly ascribed to Satan by Christians, and represents the fallen star, an ancient symbol for the fallen or evil one. In the NRSV Bible version, Isaiah 14:12 describes the fallen as "O Day Star, son of Dawn!" The Day Star, or morning star actually refers to the planet Venus, although, of course, the ancients did not know about planets. Venus always appears low on the horizon and the ancients thought of it as a star fallen from heaven (fallen angel). Venus also appears as the brightest "star" in the sky, thus the reference to the "bright and morning star" in Rev. 22:16. Although the Isaiah verse describes the fallen king of Babylon, Christians have, for centuries, ascribed Satan as taking many forms (for example the serpent). Thus, a conclusion, based on Christian beliefs of Satan, and the belief in the "inerrancy" of the Bible, one must conclude that Jesus has revealed himself as Satan!
