|[GR] > The Number 71 - Fullness|
And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water:
and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending
like a dove, and lighting upon him:
The Number 71 is strongly associated with the Holy Spirit (710).
Its primary meaning is Fulness and Dove. It appears in Scripture in Numbers 11.16:
And the LORD said unto Moses, Gather unto me seventy men of the elders of
Israel, whom thou knowest to be the elders of the people, and officers over them;
and bring them unto the tabernacle of the congregation, that they may stand there
with thee. And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will take of the
spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall bear the burden
of the people with thee, that thou bear it not thyself alone.
The Lord God Almighty placed His Spirit upon 71 people.
