This is from the book of John in the new testament...I found the notes very intereting:
Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish that you have just caught."So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish, a hundredand fifty-three of them; and although there were so many, the net was not torn. Jesus saidto them, "Come and have breakfast."
John CH 21
Now a lot of commentators have pondered over the meaning of the 153 fish. Somesuggestions to be found in study bibles and other commentaries are:
|The numbering of the fish proves that John was an eyewitness|
|There were 153 species of fish in the sea (since shown to be wrong)|
|One refers to Shem's race, three refers to Ham's race, and five refers to Japheth's race (Noah's sons)|
|153 is the number of people Jesus ministers to in the Gospel of John|
|Jesus lived for 12,240 days which equals 80 x 153; and|
|Jesus ministered for 918 days which equals 6 x 153.|
Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.
There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
