An interesting line of thought was encountered recently regarding Jesus and the number 153 in John 21:11.
According to esoteric circles, Jesus surpassed all those in Jerusalem in the knowledge of the mysteries by the age of 12.. astonishing the Jewish priests in the temple there. He then travelled to India to teach the Hindus - as they too were awaiting 'The Christ'. Like the Jews, many accepted Him as The Christ while others rejected Him. There are differing positions on Jesus' journey to India: some say to learn, but it is more likely He went to teach. Given Jesus' teachings are jam-packed with Astrology, Numerology, and the Mysteries, it seems much more likely He self-realized the Truth and the Mysteries - BEING THE CREATOR OF THEM - rather than having them imparted to Him by the various disciples of the Mystery Schools - whom each only had parts of the whole Truth. In any case.. the number 153 has some astounding things about it as we will explore below. The key to understanding 153 is the number 265 - in the ratio of 156:265... or the square root of 3...SQRT(3)...
Square Root of 3
it seems that the ratio 153:265 is the first set of integers that come close to the approximation of the square root of 3.
- SQRT(3) = 1.732050808
- 265/153 = 1.732026144
trying to find a lower common denominator is met with failure:
- 153/9 = 17
- 265/9= 29.44444444
John 21:11 mentions Simon Peter pulling 153 fish out of the sea after Jesus said to not cast your net on the left(material) side, but instead cast it on the right(spiritual).
When diving in to the mystery of 153 it was found that there is a sacred number:
- Square Root of 3...
- or its close approximation 153:265.
There is a mathematically absolute truth in this ratio - and might just explain the fish symbol AND the cross...
