Bible Blurb: Probability and reliability

Probability and Reliability

When written out fully, 10 to the 157th power looks like this:


If one considers only 48 prophecies found in the Old Testament about the coming of Messiah described in the New Testament, occurring in the life of a single person, the probabilities would be only one (1) possibility or probability in the number written out above.

All of them were fulfilled in the life of Jesus Christ, whose life, crucifixion, and resurrection we celebrate and proclaim during what is called “Holy Week,” the seven day period between the what is called “Palm Sunday,” when Jesus entered Jerusalem on a colt greeted as a king with palm branches waved by the crowd, and the third day after his Roman crucifixion when He rose from his grave and was seen by many, the day Christians designate as “Resurrection Day,” popularly known as Easter.
