A funny thing happened on the way to the seashore. Shim’on Kepha pulled in the net and began calculating the great many fish that he’d caught. 153 was the final tally. That’s a very specific number. I mean, Yochanon likely seized various numbers of fish on any given day and on countless expeditions throughout his lifetime. And then consider that he probably didn’t get around to writing his Besorah until decades after the fact. And yet this catch he remembered. The number isn’t a random one. It means something. Supposing you don’t have the slightest clue what I’m talking about, then here is the reference.
9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread. 10 Yahusha said unto them: Bring of the fish which ye have now caught. 11 Shim’on Kepha went up and drew the net to land full of great fish, a hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many yet was not the net broken.
Besorah Yochanon 21:9-11
It just so happens that 153 is a triangular number, being the sum of the first 17 integers. It’s also the sum of the first five factorials. Other fun facts assign the number 153 to a hexagonal number, and a truncated triangle number, meaning that 1, 15, and 153 are all triangle numbers. That should make perfect sense to the math people. The rest of you will have to hang in there, nodding as though you’re in agreement. Suffice it to say the final tally of fish is highly symbolic of something, and I think I know what it is. 153 is a Pythagorean number. Speaking of which, most people are unaware that Pythagoras has his own fish story to tell.
