Is Jesus for Real?  Mathematical Proof!

 

 

The fact that Jesus was born and actually did live is not what this page is all about.  What this page is attempting to answer is, "Was the Jesus of the Bible who He claimed He was?  Was He really God's Son?  Was He the Messiah?"
 

There are over 300 prophecies listed below that point directly to the Messiah.  Here is an example of just 8 :

    The time of His birth (see the Daniel 8 & 9 Timeline).
    He would be born in Bethlehem.
    He would be born of a virgin.
    He would be betrayed.
    He would be mocked.
    He would be crucified.
    He would be pierced.
    He would die with the wicked, but He would be buried with the rich.

 

Mathematics & Astronomy Professor Peter W. Stoner has made the statement that the chances of just 8 prophecies like these coming true by sheer chance is 1 in 1017 (100,000,000,000,000,000).  That would be equivalent to covering the whole state of Texas with silver dollars two feet deep (over the knee) and then asking a blind man to walk across the state and find the marked coin on the very first try.
 


 

And if we were to add only 8 more similar prophecies, for a total of 16, the odds would be 1 x 1028 x 1017 or 1 in 1045 (1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) 


Using the same type of illustration as above, if we were to press this many silver dollars (1045) into a ball and place the center of this ball where the center of our Sun is, this silver ball's outer edge would be in approximately the same area as the orbit of Neptune.  One man fulfilling all 16 prophecies would be like sending a blind-folded person out to find one specific silver dollar that has been marked and has been mixed up somewhere in this huge ball and actually finding it the first time!  (Keep in mind that this is a BALL, not a disk like our Solar System.)

 
 

Professor Stoner gives us yet another illustration, but this time, because a silver dollar, and even the atom, would be too large for this one he chose to use just the electron that orbits the nucleus of the atom.
 


 

The electron is one of the smallest particles of matter known to man.  It is so small that if you lined up 2.5 x 1015  (2,500,000,000,000,000) single file you would end up with a line that is only 1 inch long.  
 

 

Now back to Stoner's illustration.  Using only 48 of the prophecies that Jesus fulfilled it was calculated that the chances of one person fulfilling these by sheer chance would be 1 in 10157

To help us understand how huge this number is he suggested taking 10157 electrons and pressing them into a ball.  This ball, made entirely of electrons, would pretty much fill, not just our galaxy, but the entire known universe.  Once again we would mark just one electron, blindfold a man and send him out to find that one electron. 
 



Peter Stoner then states, "To the extent, then, that we know this blindfolded man cannot pick out the marked electron, we know that the Bible is inspired. This is not merely evidence. It is proof of the Bible's inspiration by God--proof so definite that the universe is not large enough to hold the evidence."
 

Professor Stoner then made the comment that, "Any man who rejects Christ as the Son of God is rejecting a fact proved perhaps more absolutely than any other fact in the world."

 

(For more details on these illustrations and others by Professor Peter W. Stoner, you can read his entire book, Science Speaks, online.)


 

And the fact that Jesus had no control over things like where, when and how He was born, or where He was buried just adds to the available evidence that He did not just work to make sure that all of the prophecies were fulfilled so that people would believe Him to be the Messiah. 

 

Jesus was, and is, the Messiah.  He is real!






 

"Unbelief will ever find excuse for doubt, and will reason away the most positive proof."
