The Science of probability
Scientists, Professor Stoner and Messianic Prophecies
Anyone can make a prediction. Having them fulfilled another story. The Science of probability has some interesting things to say about the Old Testament prophecies regarding the Messiah. Professor Ameritus of Science, Professor Peter Stoner of Westmont College, along with the help of 600 of his college students, calculated the probability of one man fulfilling even 8 of the Messianic Prophecies in the Old Testament. The students carefully weighed all the factors and examined the various circumstances that might indicate that mankind had somehow conspired to "fix" these individual Prophecies. They made their estimates as conservative as possible.
Then Professor Stoner invited other scientists to submit their own independent estimates to gauge if the calculation of his students were accuarte.Yet it was what the statistical conclusions indicated that was astounding. By a most conservative estimate some 456 Messianic prophecies were Fulfilled in ONE MAN. The one man Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Son of the Living God.
Professor Stoner and his students examined ONLY 8 of these prophecies according to the Science of probability. The chance of ONE Man fulfilling ALL 8 prophecies is 1 in 10 to the 17th power. How BIG is that number?? If you covered the ENTIRE state of TEXAS with Silver dollars, then dropped in a single marked Dollar? And then mixed them all up?
Your chance of finding that marked Dollar, on your FIRST try, WEARING A BLINDFOLD? Would be 1 in 10 to the 17th power.
So what do say you now?-- Isn't it Amazing. God came to earth in human form to save you and me. To redeem us from the sin that separated us from God and would send us into an eternal Hell without Him.
God is indeed Holy and righteousness!
