Some of the most compelling evidence that proves the Bible as the inerrant word of God is in the fulfillment of prophecy (like a prediction, but more absolute if it truly comes from God). The reason this is so is the Bible has been able to predict the future with 100% precision.  If these predictions were not made under divine inspiration, then all who prophesied would only have "luck" (i.e. probability) for their success.  Just to show how difficult this is, let’s attempt to predict the score between two football teams, the New York Giants and Chicago Bears. There is 1 chance in 2 that the Giants will beat the Bears or visa versa.  Let us assume that the score will be between 1 and 50, and that both teams can achieve either of these scores.  To determine all the possible outcomes, we multiply 2 x 50 x 50 = 5,000 (2 teams, each possibly being able to achieve up to 50 points each).  So, there is only one chance in 5,000 that you will be able to predict the correct score and winner.  Would you wager your salary on such a prediction?  The Old Testament gives hundreds of predictions about the coming Messiah who would come and save the world (take away sin and death). We will only use 11 of them to show the improbability of them occurring by chance. 

Consider the following.............................................. Odds

1) Be born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2)......................... 1:200 

2) Preceded by a messenger (Isaiah 40:3)................ 1:20

3) Enter Jerusalem on a colt (Zech 9:9)....................  1:50

4) Betrayed by a friend (Psalm 41:9)........................   1:10

5) His hands and feet pierced (Psalm 22:16).............  1:100

6) Wounded and whipped (Isaiah 53:5)......................  1:25

7) Sold for 30 pieces of silver (Zech 11:12)................  1:100

8) Spit upon and beaten (Isaiah 50:6)........................   1:10

9) 30 pieces of silver thrown into the Temple and
   given for a potter’s field (Zech. 11:13)....................   1:200

10) Silent before His accusers (Isaiah 53:7)............... 1:100

11) Be crucified with thieves (Isaiah 53:12)................  1:100

The probability estimates given are based on conservative odds.  For example, most of the prophecies were given hundreds of years before their actual occurrence (we could assign one year for each chance before it occurred).  Also, the town of Bethlehem was one town in thousands in the nation of Israel. And then multiple individuals prophesied these events, not one.  Even with these conservative odds, the combined probability of all these prophesies being fulfilled by chance equals 1 x 10 raised to the 19th power or 1 in 10,000,000,000,000,000,000 through mathematical probability analysis. In other words, there is only one chance in 10 thousand quadrillion or one million trillions that all 11 prophecies could have been predicted by chance!  Of course, any rational mind would know this is impossible!!!

Therefore, the only rational explanation for such accuracy is that God does exist and gave us His only begotten Son, Jesus, for you and I so that we could become sons and daughters of the Most High GOD.  These prophecies do predict that Jesus died for you so you could have life everlasting.  All you have to do is accept His pardon for the forgiveness of your sin.  It really is that simple.  Won't you do so today?
By taking just 11 fufilled prophecies (there are so many more) given in the Old Testament about the coming of Jesus Christ in His first advent....there is only one chance in 10 thousand quadrillion that all 11 prophecies could have been predicted by chance! Of course, any rational mind would know this is impossible!!!

Therefore, all wise men (and women) still seek Him
