It was recently calculated that for any man to actually be the Messiah, the prophetic Son of God, He would have to fulfill all the hundreds of prophecies perfectly from Genesis to Revelation.
Well, just to fulfill the virgin birth, would require a factor of 1 times ten to the tenth power in order to figure out the likelihood of any man being able to be the Son of God.
When multiplied we come up with a figure of 10,000,000,000 or one in ten billion.
There are approximately 9 billion people in the world today which is the highest population ever. since the beginning of time. There may have only been another 10 billion people at any time in history before the urban revolution. (population of cities).
So that pretty much accounts for all of mankind for all times.
If that isn't enough think of this, in order to fulfill "All" the prophetic promises of the Messiah, you have to add 18 more zero's to the 10 billion which gives you a number no man can figure out.
According to the Word of God, there has only been one man who fulfilled all of the prophecies perfectly and that man was Jesus Christ (Yeshua of Nazareth). As the Roman centurion said, "Truly, this man was the Son of God."
So if you want to use mathematical science to prove He was who He said He was........there ya go.
When unbelievers question your faith just ask them to "do the math."

Funny, i like it. I like to think, that the opportunity to be perfect by the time we die is 1 out of 1. But to take the necessary steps is what stops all. It remains 1 out of 1 till we die. If at first you dont succeed, god will let you try try again.
