Who Are the 144,000 in the Bible? Is this Number Symbolic or Literal?
Who is included in the 144,000? Much debate and discord has resulted from the study of exactly who the 144,000 in Revelation are. Christians agree the 144,000 does not denote the total of souls throughout history who will be ultimately be saved from the wrath of eternal damnation. Generally, Christians either interpret this verse as literally 144,000 people, or they believe it is a definite number to symbolize an indefinite number of people.
