Hard Questions on Can the Bible be Trusted

          My main source of comfort and healing comes from my God and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Without Him I will not have the strength and endurance to get through these 20 years of suffering and the bleakness I face every now and then.

          I had to ask myself some hard questions on which I have researched and compiled the answers some years back. You can click on the links below to get the answers in my website. They are:

  1. Can the Bible be trusted?
  2. Why So Many English Bible Translations?
  3. The New Testament Documents: Are They Reliable by F F Bruce
  4. Are there 365 Messianic Prophecies that Jesus Christ has fulfilled?

 

What is the Mathematical Probability of fulfilling 48 Prophecies?

          The probability of a person fulfilling just eight prophecies is one chance in one hundred million billion. That number is millions of times more than the total number of people who have ever been on our planet earth!

Peter W. Stoner2 also computed that the probability of fulfilling forty-eight prophecies was one chance in a trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion!

         Jesus Christ fulfilled more than 48 Old Testament prophecies. In fact Jesus Christ, as seen from above, fulfilled 365 messianic prophecies.

“The odds alone say it would be impossible for anyone to fulfill the Old Testament prophecies,” Lapides concluded. “Yet Jesus—--and only Jesus throughout all of history---managed to do it.” (See the article Did Jesus and Jesus alone match the identity of the Messiah? for details in my website, www.jameslau88.com under the sub-heading “Jesus Christ”)

Movies on Paul and Jesus Christ from YouTube

Since we are all unique and different, every individual looking at the same scene will interpret it differently. At this stage of my journaling, I wanted to find out how people portray the two main New Testament characters---Paul and Jesus Christ. My main objective is to have a closer personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to unconditionally trust Him. I went to YouTube and downloaded these movies:

 

  1. Movies on Paul the Apostle in YouTube25. He wrote about 66% of the New Testament. Initially Paul was a persecutor of Christians but he saw Jesus on the road to Damascus and was converted to be an apostle.
