The existence of "fools gold" is prevalent in some Bible studies. We all find "it" and go running to the bank, and the assessor smirks and hands it back with, "Fools gold, sorry." Been to to the assessor many times. :sigh:
So if the numbers add up is it gold or fools gold?

What numbers? FYI, I am not really into the "numbers," besides what numbers are you speaking of?

I am very much on the fence regarding numerology and the Scriptures. The reasons are many and varied. This is just me; each of us have our own path to traverse

Please do not take this the wrong way  :friendstu: but I was never able to find the Spirit of Love in the little that I have looked at. This is just me.  :HeartThrob:

What kind of Nuggets have you found? Because if nothing else, I believe Truth is everywhere.  :dsunny:

Love Julie

1 John 4
1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. 4 Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5 They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. 6 We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
Don't Forget LOVE.

The numbers used on the video. The maker of the video uses the original Hebrew text. All Hebrew letters are also numbers and if you add these numbers together the math works out perfectly. Watch the video and you will understand better.

Greek too:  letters used as numbers, and the text math works out perfectly.
Socrates taught Plato.  Plato taught Aristotle.  Aristotle tutored the son of Philip of Macedon.  This boy grew up to become Alexander the Great, largely by slaughtering a lot of people.  That's philosophy.

Jesus spoke the Truth.  He blessed the poor.  He healed the sick.  He even raised the dead.  He died on a cross for us, lived again, and came back long enough to tell us to love one another.  That's religion.

Is it because the donkey symbolized humbility?

A donkey represents peace. A horse war . Horses are equalled to aggression, pride and arrogance.

A certain person in the Bible made a peace offering to his mad brother. He gave him all sorts of stuff and several types of animals except horses. Unfortunately I don't remember names. Not even in which book the story can be found.

When Jesus entered Jerusalem He was king (anointed king the evening before). He was peaceful suffering servant King.
In revelation Jesus rides the 2nd white horse (the first one is satan). And yep, as soon as He arrives on His horse He slays enemies.

My  :2c:
1 Timothy 2:3-4  ...God our Savior;  Who will have all men to be saved...
John 12:47  And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
Romans 4:5 But to the one who does not work, but believes in the one who declares the ungodly righteous ...

I would, and I do consider the word and meaning of humility. I have not given much thought to "Why the Donkey," but humility is a word that comes to my mind.  :2c:
