Prophecy Fulfilled

Today we will take a look at the last point of answering the God Question - Is the Bible True? by  examining - How prophecy compares with the Bible:

There are 332 prophesies in the Old testament that were all  fulfilled in Jesus’ first coming. These prophesies were written 400 to 1400 years before the birth of Christ. The probability that even 8 of these would be fulfilled in one person is 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000.
here is a great illustration of these odds. Imagine you covered the whole state of Texas 2 foot deep with silver dollars. You then paint one silver dollar and put it in any of the stacks anywhere in the state. The odds that just 8 of Jesus' prophesies are true are the same as putting a blindfolded man in the center of Texas and him picking the painted silver dollar on his first try!
The probability that 48 of these would be fulfilled is 1 in 10x157.  - There are 10x66 atoms in the universe. The fact 332 prophesies were true is proof enough, but the only way for anyone to come to an honest conclusion about whether or not the Bible is really true is to read it.

You know what you’ll find when you read the Bible?

It reads you.
 
Be wise today and always - always trust in the Word of God.
