So what you you think about this link between the two verses (see here)? I used to believe this was very powerful evidence of divine design.

Weird coincidence

could it be that john deliberately composed it that way?

112 is also "yabbok" יַבֹּֽק-- the name of the river where Jacob wrestled with the angel and became Israel.
