    In English it says that if you add the numbers from 1 to 36, it equals 666

    Also, if you add the numbers from 1 to 17, it is 153

    The 153 fishes, right? I wonder why 1 to 17.

    I wonder too. It's just an observation. Peter and Paul each occur exactly 153 time in the Bible. The were both fishers of men - one to the Jews and the other to the Gentiles. If you do a search you will find only in the KJV that:

    156 verse have the word Peter or Peter's
    4 verses have the word Peter's (Mt 8:14; Joh 1:40; 6:8; Ac 12:14)
    152 verses have just the word Peter
    1 verse has both Peter and Peter's (Ac 12:14) and should be counted so exactly 153 verses have the word Peter.
    Regex search \bPeter[^'] to find exactly Peter.
    =====
    159 verses have the word Paul, Paulus, or Paul's. One is in the postscript (2Ti 4:22) and should not be counted. Paulus should not be counted in Ac 13:7.
    6 verses have the word Paul's (Ac 19:29; 20:37; 21:8,11; 23:16; 25:14)
    1 verse has both Paul and Paul's and should be counted. (Ac 23:16)
    So 159-1-6+1= exactly 153 verses have the word Paul.
    Regex search \bPaul[^'u] to find exactly Paul (not Paulus)

    Also 153 = 1**3 +5**3 + 3**3 (cube the digits of 153 and add together = 153).

    Also 153 = sum of 1! +2! +3! +4! +5! (the sum of the 1st 5 factorials - i.e. 1 + 2*1 + 3*2*1 + 4*3*2*1 + 5*4*3*2*1)

    12 + 5 = 17 ... 12 - perfection of government : 5 - grace !
    just a thought.

    * Bartimeus being one of them (Mark 10:46), these two being healed
    as Jesus left Jericho.

    ** The blind man (No. 36) was healed (Luke 18:35) "as He was come
    nigh unto Jericho," and therefore is additional to the two who were
    healed as He was leaving Jericho (No. 16). See Matt 20:30; Mark 10:46.

    We give the above not as an alternative solution, but as an additional
    illustration, believing that all may be true; and at any rate, that
    all contribute to, and increase the cumulative evidence in support of
    the same great and blessed fact, that it is true of the Lord's people
    as it is of the stars, "He calleth them all by their names" (Psa
    147:4). The book of Exodus is the book in which we first hear of
    redemption (Exo 15:14), and the Hebrew and divinely canonical name for
    this book is "THE NAMES," because His people are redeemed by name!

    This is the lesson of the 153 great fishes.
