DEFENDING  THE  BRIDE

    Why  153  Fish  in  John  21:11  ?


Read the Answer which answers all the Questions.

 
 Luke 5:1-11
Scholars have suggested hundreds of possible meanings for Johnís reference to ď153 Fish.Ē These suggestions are often long and extremely speculative. How could the Apostle John have expected his readers to see any of those connections? The fact that John does not offer an explanation for the 153 fish highly suggests that his meaning would have been so obvious to the first century Greeks in Ephesus that no explanation was required. This web page examines all these suggestions. And, it explains how we can see a reasonable proof that there is only one answer that we know Johnís readers would have recognized.
