Tsippor Nefesh

In Jewish mysticism, the Hebrew letter Nun - נ stands for the individuation of man, for the individual in time.

The Nun is called Tsipor Nefesh, the Bird of soul. Tsipor Nefesh is the uniquenessn of the individual human being, which distinguishes him from all others. From which it says in Psalm: Save my only from the power of the pack of dogs. Psalm 22:20 The own beginning.

 Herbert Weiler

 Of the Hundred and fifty-three fish                                                            

Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land,  full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three;

and although there were so many, the net was not torn. John, 21,11


The book traces the meaning of a number in the text of John. The number of 153 fish at the nightly catch of fish on the lake of Tiberias. In the course, based on the Hebrew etymology a previously unknown relation to the mention of this number opens up to the story of the camel and the eye of the needle in the other three Gospels.
And thus to the topic of identity and property. The number points to the individuation of man.                          excerpt>>

Text correction note:

Page 4, the comment of Rashi: "Because God had not commanded to strike the rock, but 'you shall speak to the rock ....' if Moses and Aharon had not failed here, they would have entered the land."  - not "if Moses and Aharon had not passed away here,.."


Page 8: "Therefore, the first of the Ten Commandments says: I am your God who led you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of servitude. Do not have another deity before my face." - not "Do not be another deity, face me."
