313 Prophecies About the Messiah that Were Fulfilled by Jesus Christ

Date: Apr. 21, 2010

Author: Bob Henkins

I heard something amazing, they say that if we took just eight of the prophecies written about the Messiah, the probability of one man fulfilling them would be about one in 100 trillion. And the chance of one man fulfilling 48 of them would be one in 10 to the 157 power. Now think about the probability of Jesus fulfilling every prophecy written about the coming Messiah, all 313 of them. How could he do that unless he is the Son of God? There could be no other answer, Jesus IS the Messiah, Jesus IS God's son!
