There are many Biblical stories that have caused debate and speculation throughout the history of the church. This is one of them. At first it appears to be a straightforward post-resurrection account of an encounter between the Disciples and Jesus. The Disciples had been fishing all night long and had caught nothing, when Jesus appears on the beach; he tells them where to cast their nets, they follow his direction, and they haul in a huge number of fish. It’s the precise number of fish — 153 — that has garnered most of the attention.

Why 153? Did they sit there and count them and, somehow, remember the number? Or, is that number in some way symbolic, indicating a spiritual or mystical meaning to the early Church and/or to us? Is there some kind of a message to be found in a catch of 153 fish?

Christian preachers across the centuries have long thought so. From the days of Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, the number 153 has been considered a very special number, indeed … a number which pointed to an incredible reality regarding our task as ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

153 is a "triangular" number. It is the sum of all the integers from 1 to 17. In other words:

1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14+15+16+17=153

Also, if you take 1, 5, and 3, and raise each digit to the 3rd power and add the results together, you get 153

1 to the third power is … 1
5 to the third power is … 5×5=25×5=125
3 to the third power is … 3×3=9×3=27

1+125+27=153

There are many other mathematically significant observations to be made regarding the number 153, and speculation around the meaning and application of those observations could go on and on. One of the most popular meanings derived from the significance of this number, however, has to do with concepts of "wholeness" and "completion." And that is how I’ve decided to understand it today.

When we cast wide the metaphorical nets of our ministries — as Jesus tells us to cast them — we will receive the haul God has for us: an amazing, miraculous blessing of God’s grace for us and for all. We don’t get to pick and choose those souls whom God sends us; if God puts them into our nets, we’re called to welcome them into the family of faith.

In other words, we have 153 chances to share the love of God with others … meaning that we have ALL THE OPPORTUNITIES WE NEED to love others with the love with which God has loved us. Let’s be about sharing God’s love with all!John 21:1-14 By: Dr. Gregory S. Neal Senior Pastor: First United Methodist Church of Farmersville, Texas May 5, 2019 See MoreSee Less
