Four-teen: Being a multiple of seven,
partakes of its significance; and, being double that number, implies a double
measure of spiritual perfection.
The number two with which it is combined (2x7) may, however, bring its own
significance into its meaning, as in Matthew 1, where the genealogy of Jesus

number associated with incarnation.
The same principle may be applied to other multiples of seven, and Bible
students can find their own illustrations.
