OK, Jacob wanted them out of the temple, check!
Jacob wants Jack to find what he's supposed to do, on track!
Is someone still coming to the island or not? I hope Desmond is coming! 108 was the time in the hatch when they would have to press the button, kinda fits.

great!  thanks for the pic!  well I wonder how much weight to put into these numbers.  no one ever said you had to be a 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, or 42 to be a candidate. 

And now we can debate the significance of NOT being 4,8,15,16,23 or 42!

But did MIB or Jacob say "only these 6 numbers are candidates" ever?  I'm guessing Lapidus is somewhere on there, Bram and Ilana mentioned he may be a candidate.

Nope, they definitely did not say you had to be one of the Numbers.

Flocke did tell sawyer that these 6 were candidtes. I believe they are hinting that they are the only candidates.

I'd hope so. I'd hate to have to memorize another string of numbers.

I was assuming that as well, but we hadn't seen any other uncrossed name (besides the 6) until now. We have seen crossed out names of people who are still alive (including Littleton and Linus, see http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Candidates ). So crossing out doesn't necessarily mean dead. So if Kate's name isn't crossed out, why is she not considered a candidate?

Meh.  The only important numbers are the ones who haven't been crossed off.  We aren't for sure that she ISN'T a candidate.  At one point Jacob had (i'm guessing) 360 candidates, right?  We know he is down to considerably less, but still more than 6 since Kate's number 51 isn't crossed off.  I don't think he's going to write your name down, assign you a number, watch you in a magic mirror and NOT consider you a candidate.

Good link JB.
That changes my whole thinking. Looks like lots of people who came to the island are on the list. Now why were those 6 numbers used for other things?

Thanks Juggy.

My other question is that the largest number in the cavern was well over 360 (It was 761 - Faraday). Does that mean anything in particular?

Picture  Name  Number  Status  Information 
 John Locke (LOCKE)  4  Deceased  He met Jacob when he was thrown out a window by his father. Jacob touched his shoulder and said he was sorry that happened to him. Was crossed off the list by the Man in Black. 
 Hugo "Hurley" Reyes (REYES)  8  Alive  Met Jacob upon release from prison, and was talked into booking passage on Ajira Flight 316. Jacob touched Hurley's chest when emphasizing the importance of the flight. 
 James "Sawyer" Ford (FORD)  15  Recruited by MiB  Met Jacob as a child at his parents' funeral. Jacob touched Sawyer when he handed him a pen, which Sawyer used to write his letter. Identified as a candidate by the Man in Black. Has currently chosen the third option: Leave the Island. 
 Sayid Jarrah (JARRAH)  16  Infected  Met Jacob when his wife Nadia was murdered. He touched Sayid's shoulder briefly. Identified as a candidate by the Man in Black. 
 Jack Shephard (SHEPHARD)  23  Alive  Met Jacob at the hospital where he worked after his first successful surgery. Jacob offered Jack an Apollo Bar that he had unsuccessfully tried to dislodge from the vending machine. Their fingers touched as Jacob passed the bar to Jack. Identified as a candidate by the Man in Black. Could also refer to Christian Shephard who has often been seen in Jacob's cabin. On the wheel in Jacob's Lighthouse, Shephard's name is written in a darker black ink and different handwriting than the names surrounding his. There are also several small punctures in the surface around his name and a few of those below it.

KWON may also refer to Ji Yeon Kwon, the daughter of Sun and Jin, who was conceived on the Island.

can we get a screencap of "761-Faraday" from the cave? I REALLY have a feeling it might be a sloppy version of "101-Faraday" as on the lighthouse wheel...
