Thanks Marc Wright for this little math lesson. Fun to be faith-filled.
How sure can we be that Jesus is the Messiah? Can we measure the certainty of the Messiahship of Jesus based upon the statement of William Thompson ( Lord Kelvin), "Until we can measure a thing, we really know very little about it."
Calculating the math-probability of just 8 predictions fulfilled about Jesus!
Bible Verse Prophecy/Prediction Probability/Certainty
Micah 5:2 Born in Bethlehem 1:100,000
Zechariah 9:9 King riding on a donkey 1:1000
