All week long, I've been reading Hank Hanegraaff's great book "The Apocalypse Code", a study that debunks Tim LeHaye's "Left Behind" series. Hank gets into the book of Revelation and does a wonderful job of showing parallels with John's vision and details in the Old Testament. Over and over, Hanegraaff discusses the importance of the number 7. As you know, and as he emphasizes, this number represents "totality" or "completeness".
Well, today I wrapped up my final trip after many years of driving the same two DISD bus routes. I pulled bus #450 into its slot and dutifully recorded the odometer reading, as required by our organization. And what was the odometer reading?
