|[GR] > The Number 153 - I am the Lord Thy God|
For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour:
I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.
Simon Peter went up, and drew the
net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all
there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
|The Number 153|
I am the Lord thy God
Ani YHVH Elohikah
He is faithful [Num 12.7]
He shall cause to inherit [Deut 1.38]
Sons of God [Gen 6.4]
Side, Part [John 21.6]
The Number 153 appears explicitly in John 21.10, and implicitly in the values of the
words used (side = 153, net = 1224). It has many interesting properties.
153 = 1 + 2 + 3 + ... + 16 + 17 = Sum(17)
153 = 1! + 2! + 3! + 4! + 5!
153 = 13 + 53 + 33
In the second identity, the exclamation mark represents the mathematical function known as
n factorial which is defined as n! = 1 x 2 x 3 x ... x n. Other properties of the
Number 153 are discussed on a page by Shyam Sunder Gupta .
Factors: 9 x 17
Cf. 612, 1071
