# 153 St. Peter Fish

Bible Math: 153 St. Peter Fish
[John 21:3-11]
3  So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.
6 He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish... It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn.

1) 153= 1! + 2! + 3! + 4! + 5! = (1+2+6+24+120)

2) $1^3+5^3 +3^3$ = 1 + 125 + 27 = 153

3) Take any multiple of 3, e.g. 78
-> $7^3+8^3$ = 855

-> $8^3+5^3+5^3$ = 762

762 -> 567 ->684 ->792 ->1080 ->513 ->153 (Always!)
