# Set theory and the Bible

**Set theory and the Bible** is an approach that seeks to understand both mathematics and the Bible by viewing them through set theory. Georg Cantor championed this approach as a way of understanding eternity in the Bible, an his work yielded profound new insights for mathematics.

Miracles can be easier to understand with a perspective of set theory rather than other styles of reasoning commonly taught in school. For example, the miraculous catch of fish (John 21:1-14) is unfathomable under ordinary reasoning, but entirely logical under an approach of set theory. One side of the boat belongs to the set of an absence of fish, while the other side belongs to the set of plentiful fish.

The Parable of the Vineyard Workers at Matthew 20:1-16 is difficult to understand under conventional approaches, but is straightforward when the workers are viewed as one set, and the master as a different set.
