All authoritatively accepted translations of the Bible translate the number of the beast in Revelation 13:18 as being the number 666…Some scholars claim that the earliest known copies of the text use the Greek symbol for 10 instead of 60 and that the number should be 616. This is refuted by the writings of the second century Christian named Irenaeus, who knew the Apostle John and clarified that the number for 666 was what the Apostle John had written down. Either way, the numbers point to Pope Benedict XVI as the Antichrist. The Roman number in the written name Benedict XVI is DCXVI which is 616, but the Italian spoken name Benedict IL XVI contains the number DCLXVI which is 666. It is apparent that the Bible wanted us to know that Benedict XVI is the one being spoken of.
