On Sunday, like many other preachers, my sermon featured John 21:1-19 and the miraculous catch of 153 fish. What many people ask is, is the number 153 important? This question has been considered over many centuries and I've drawn together some interesting facts.
So, as you see, the significance of the number 153 has been thought about by multiple people, with many competing ideas offered. It makes me wonder what significance other numbers in the Bible hold. I am interested in looking into this further and writing a series of these interesting facts on the main numbers in the Bible, perhaps as a type of Bible study. I'll give it a go; your feedback would be most interesting and welcome.
