Hidden Treasures

The Bible is much more than a book of religion.

What chance?

What chance could Jesus be the fulfillment of prophecy?
In his book Science Speaks, Peter Stoner applies the modern science of probability to just 8 prophecies regarding Christ (there are over 600 in the Old Testament). He says, “The chance that any man might have …fulfilled all eight prophecies is one in 10 to the 17th. That would be 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000.” (one hundred quadrillion).What is that like? Stoner illustrated: Take 10 to the 1……7th silver dollars and lay them on the face of Texas. They will cover the whole state 2 feet deep. Now mark one of these silver dollars and stir the whole mass thoroughly. Blindfold a man and tell him he can travel as far as he wishes, but he must pick up that one marked silver dollar on the first try. What chance would he have of getting the right one? Stoner concludes, “Just the same chance that the prophets would have had of writing those eight prophecies and having them all come true in any one man,…providing they wrote them in their own wisdom.”

What a Bible! What a Savior!
