The odds are astronomical The odds of winning the lottery 1 in 246 million The odds of getting struck by lightning: 1 in 16 million The odds of one person fulfilling only one of these prophecies is 1 in 100 billion. The odds of all 39 prophecies being fulfilled by one individual.
The odds are astronomical 1 in 549,755,813,900 by some estimates. That is trillions. Then consider the other prophecies What do we have? Nothing more than convincing proof that Jesus was the Messiah, and that Jesus is God.
