“The Apostles caught 153 fish, a number Augustine and other Church Fathers found significant. 153 is cabalistically the number of the Sons of God. This expression, ‘Sons of God’ (Hebrew: Bene Elohim) occurs several times in scripture, and per gematrium it counts up 153. Hengstenberg found in this number the fullness of the Gentiles indicated according to 2 Chronicles 2.17, where Solomon reckons the strangers in Israel at 153,600. ‘They had toiled all night on unproductive soil in Israel, and now the Light of Day shall begin to rise and spread o’er all the earth, and the Gentiles shall walk in it.’

Petrus Bungus (16th century) wrote ‘It was shortly after our Lord’s Resurrection that the wonderful draught of fishes is related, and therein was a reference to a new and eternal life for all who were safely brought ‘out of the deep’ into the ship; therefore there were no reprobate sinners taken in the net, for all these were on the left side. The net was not broken; heresy and schism had not yet done damage.’”
