COMMENTS

Each term is a multiple of 70. The proof is straightforward. Example step showing k <> 3 (mod 7): If k==3 (mod 7), then (3^2)*k+1 == 9*3+1 == 0 (mod 7); i.e., for j=2 (3^j)*k+1 is never prime in this case. A corresponding j value with 0<=j<=7 can be found for each modulus (2,5,7) and nonzero residue such that (3^j)*k+1 is composite (a multiple of that modulus) so that only k == 0 (mod 2), k == 0 (mod 5) and k == 0 (mod 7) remain, hence k == 0 (mod 70).
