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

Notes:

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.

    I posted something in my blog about this number.  You might find it interesting too.

      Hello Coin Toss,

      I was sitting here contemplating playing 153 in VA tonight when I saw your post.  I will add it to the other numbers that I'm playing.  The information you listed is quite interesting.   Have a good day and happy winning!
