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 needle-eye in the other three Gospels.
And thus to the topic of identity and property. The number points to the individuation of man.
