The Odds Against Jesus Not Being the Messiah

Unique among all books ever written, the Bible accurately foretells specific events in detail centuries before they occurred.

Anyone can make a prediction. Having them fulfilled is another story.

Bible prophecies foretold in detail the persecution and crucifixion of Jesus Christ:

  1. That Jesus would be betrayed by a friend was prophesied in Psalm 41:9 about 1000 years before it happened, in 1000 BC.
  2. That Jesus would be betrayed for 30 pieces of silver was prophesied in Zechariah 11:12-13 about 500 years before it happened.
  3. That Jesus would be spat upon and beaten was prophesied in Isaiah 50:6 about 700 years before it happened.
  4. That Jesus would be silent before his accusers was prophesied in Isaiah 53:7 about 700 years before it happened
  5. That God’s servant would die for our sins was prophesied in Isaiah 53:4-6 about 700 years before it happened.
  6. The fact that Jesus would be pierced was prophesied by Zechariah 12:10 about 700 years before it happened.
  7. That Jesus would be “numbered with transgressors” was prophesied in Isaiah 53:12 about 700 years before it happened.
  8. That God’s servant would be buried in a rich man’s tomb was prophesied in Isaiah 53:9 about 700 years before it happened.

Professor Stoner and his students examined these eight prophecies according to the science of probability. The chance of ONE Man fulfilling ALL 8 prophecies is 1 in 10 to the 17th power.

How BIG is that number?

If you covered the ENTIRE state of TEXAS with silver dollars, then dropped in a single marked dollar? And then mixed them all up? Your chance of finding that marked dollar, on your FIRST try, WEARING A BLINDFOLD would be 1 in 10 to the 17th power.

This very large number is: 10,000,000,000,000,000.
