The fulfillment of prophecy proves that the Bible is the Word of God. If we can prove that the things prophesied in the Bible are such as no human beings, however scholarly or brilliant, could have foretold, than we have proved that the Bible is from a source that is super human. Space permits us to give only a very few illustrations.
First to deserve mention are the more than 300 Old Testament prophecies referring to the Messiah, everyone of which was fulfilled in Christ in minutest detail. The prophets foretold that He would be born of the tribe of Judah ( Gen. 49:10), that He was to be born of a virgin (Isa. 7:14), that He was to be born in Bethlehem of Judea (Micah 5:2), that He was to be called out of Egypt (Hos. 11:1), that a messenger was to be sent before Him (ISA. 40:3; Mal. 3 :1), that He should teach by parables (Psa. 78:2), that He should be patient under trial and persecution ( Isa. 53), that He should be sold for 30 pieces of silver (Zech 11:12&13) with which a potter's field should be purchased, and many other things that could not possibly have been foretold by human wisdom or even guesses. Many of these prophecies seemed very improbable and unbelievable at the time they were uttered.
The Bible is composed of sixty-six books, written in about 15 different centuries, by nearly 40 writers who occupied different stations, and yet through it all there is a beautiful and impressive harmony that proves conclusively that there was a Master Mind which inspired all of it.
