Hour Thirteen: How Sure Can We Be?

Until we can measure a thing, we really know very little about it.

William Thomson (Lord Kelvin)

For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
2 Peter 1:16

We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
2 Peter 1:19

Prophetic Scriptures

8,362 predictive verses; 1,817 predictions on 737 separate matters.

additional list for the final week…

The Old Testament was translated into Greek by 270B.C. They contain
over 300 prophecies detailing the Coming Messiah. We are now going
to examine just eight of them.

For this stastistical analysis, I am indebted to Peter Stoner, Science
Speaks (which I took as the basis and modified). Can we measure our
confidence that Jesus really was who He said He was?
