The Biblical and The Prophetic Meaning of Number 17

All people who are studying the Bible should know that very often God is represented with numbers. There are many different meanings that number 17 can have in the Bible and Prophetically.

First of all we have to say that this number is usually used as a symbol of victory and it means that God managed to overcome his enemies. Actually, it is known that God was able to overcome the sins of humans when he decided to destroy the earth by flooding it. It was known as the Great Flood that started on the 17th of the 2nd month in the Hebrew calendar that was used in that time. It is also known that the ark of Noah and 8 passengers who were with him made a rest on the Ararat mountains exactly on the 17th of the 7th month.

According to the religious calendar, this day was actually the same day as the 17th of Nisan. Nisan was considered to be the the first month in the religious calendar. This day was also the day of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who defeated death this way.

Actually, on the 17th of Nisan, he rose from his grave and it was a big day of his resurrection. Before that Jesus was in the grave for 3 days and nights. As you can see, number 17 is present everywhere, which means that God chose this date for his resurrection and also for many other things. It could be a reminder for you that nothing happens by chance, but there is a good reason and purpose for everything.

Knowing all that, we can also say that number 17 is a number of restoration in the biblical sense. Actually, on the 17th God restored the earth and returned it to be perfect.

According to the Book of Daniel, his beasts had 7 heads and 10 horns, so we have that 7 + 10 gives 17. It is also said in the Bible that the end-time system of devil will have 7 heads and 10 horns, so we can see that 17 has also a negative connotation in this book.


In the Revelation it was said that humans will be under the rule of the beast or devil and they will fight against those people who still believe in God. However, it is believed that the true Christians will gain a victory over all those who are against God.

There are also many other biblical facts related to number 17. We have to mention that Rehoboam, who was the first Judah’s king and the Solomon’s son, was on the throne for 17 years. The Book of James contains material from 17 books of the Old Testament. In the Book of Psalms 17 enemies of Israel were mentioned.

We have also to mention that Joseph was taken from his father Jacob, but they were reunited after 17 years. This brought peace and joy to Jacob and all the sadness was replaced by happiness. Another interesting fact is that Joseph’s brothers actually sold him as a slave when he was only 17 years old.
