Prophecies Concerning Jesus

There were over 300 Old Testament prophecies about Messiah that were fulfilled by the life of Jesus Christ.

If we assign a probability of guessing each of these predictions correctly, we see that from a human viewpoint it is impossible to predict these events as the Bible has. Not one prediction failed. All are correctly fulfilled. This proves that the Bible is not humanly authored, but authored by God who ALONE knows the future.

 

If you take just EIGHT of these prophecies, the odds of one person fulfilling all EIGHT of these by coincidence is 1: 1000000000000000000 (one in 10 to the 17th power).

 

How hard is this for one  person to fulfill by coincidence?

Suppose you took the state of Texas and spread silver dollars two feet deep across the whole state, then marked just one of them and buried it somewhere in the state. Then, if you chose one person, blindfolded him, and told him to pick just one silver dollar, his chances of getting the marked one on his first try would be one in 10 to the 17th power! (Peter Stoner, Science Speaks)

Jesus did not just fulfill EIGHT prophecies, he fulfilled THREE HUNDRED!
