This was the first of the discoveries that led to his conversion. Imagine: being saved by math! Talk about God moving in mysterious ways! Panin went on to devote 50 years to the exploration of the mathematical properties of the Bible. For more information on Panin's work, please see Is God a Mathematician, by Keith Newman. One of the most interesting of many interesting things about Panin's work is his discovery that the first verse of Genesis and the first verse of Matthew reveal similar patterns of sevens.
