"We have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place" (2 Peter 1:19)
There are many reasons to study Bible prophecy. One of the most important is that it validates Jesus as God in the flesh.
There are over 300 prophecies concerning the First Coming of the Messiah in the Hebrew Scriptures. One hundred and eight of these are separate and distinct. The odds of only seven being fulfilled accidentally in the life of one person are 1 in 1017 or one in one hundred quadrillion. All 109 — not just 7 — were fulfilled in the life of Jesus.
