There are many prophecies concerning Jesus and his work. If we take just 50 of these prophecies (they number into the hundreds), and give each prophecy an equal chance of fulfillment or of failure (the mathematical odds against fulfillment are greater than 50/50 -- Jesus was to be born in Bthlehem of Judea, for instance, but there were many thousands of cities in the world at the time of Jesus and he could have been born in any one of them -- the odds against fulfillment would be one against the total number of cities that then existed). Still, we will give each of the 50 prophecies and equal chance of fulfillment or of failure. The odds against fulfillment of all of them in the life of one man would be 2 carried to the 50th power. Any good calculator will tell you that would be 1,112,000,000,000,000 to one against all of them being fulfilled in the life of Jesus. They were all fulfilled in his life. It is incredible that this was mere chance. It must have been controlled by an Almighty Being, which proves the existence of God, the deity of Jesus, and the credibility of the Bible.
