Jesus Fulfilled Prophecy

Many have question the fact that Jesus was God in the flesh. Some would agree that He was a historical figure, and others have seen Him as a prophet. But considering all the prophecies that Jesus fulfilled, it would be impossible for Him to be anything but Lord and Saviour of all things. Professor Peter Stoner of the Pasadena college for many years and mathematician wondered himself what was the possibility of Jesus fulfilling all the one hundred prophecies about Himself. He calculated the mathematical probability of one man fulfilling just eight messianic prophecies was 1 in 10 to the 17th power, or 100,000,000,000,000,000 to 1. He then calculated that the odds of one man fulfilling 48 prophecies was 1 in 10 to the 157th power, or 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, to 1. If we based the proof solely on probability, then the case would be closed. Still not convinced? Not only is there more historical evidence about Him than any other figure or subject, there is power in His name to be found for all those who apply it to everything. Here below are nine separate prophecies that Jesus fulfilled. They were written about Him many hundreds of years before His miraculous birth by the prophet Isaiah.

Isaiah 53

 1) Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? (John 12; Romans 10:16)

 4) Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. (Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24)

 5) But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. (Matthew 26:67; Romans 4:25; 1 Peter 2:24)

 6) All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. (1 Peter 2:25)

 7) He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth. (Matthew 26:63; 27:12; Mark 14:60-61, 15:4-5; Acts 8:32)

 8) He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. (Acts 8:33)

 9) And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. (1 Peter 2:22; 1 John 3:5)

11) He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. (Romans 5:19)

12) Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. (Matthew 27:38; Luke 22:37, 23:33-34; Hebrews 9:28; 1 Peter 2:4)
