Prophecies Fullfilled

Lent is now upon us and as we get ready for Passion week and Easter, I thought that I might have a look at some of the over 350 prophecies about Jesus in the bible. Since the Bible is the inerrant word of God, all the prophecies have or will come true. Don’t worry I’ve included only 31 of the prophecies that have already been fulfilled in the attached paper.

Here are some other facts I bet you did not know.

  • Isaiah refers to the Earth as being round.  Isaiah 40:22 “It is He who sits above the circle of Earth.”  Isaiah was written between 740 and 680 B.C.
  • Noah was given the exact dimensions and design for the ark by God. No vessel that size was built again until the late 1800’s.  Modern naval architects have determined that the size and shape of the arc are the best design for a “barge type” ship in open seas.  Just like the modern oil supertankers we have today.
  • In Chapter 26 of Ezekiel. The prophet predicts the destruction of the Phoenician city–state of Tyre in 585 B.C. Alexander the Great fulfilled part of the prophecy (verse 12) in 332 B.C when his architect built a causeway, using the rubble of the mainland city, in order to get over the water to the city now on an island.  The prophecy was completely fulfilled by the Muslims in 1291.
  • There are 212 references in the New Testament to Old Testament scripture.
  • There are over 24,000 surviving ancient manuscript copies of the New Testament copies. By comparison there are only 643 surviving copies of the Iliad by Homer and onyx 10 copies of the Gallic Wars by Julius Caesar.
  • In addition to the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Septuagint the most important biblical fragments are:
    • Ryland’s Papyrus (A.D. 115-125) a fragment of the book of John
    • Bodmer Papyri  ( A.D. 150-200) Gospel fragments of John and Luke
    • Chester Beatty Papyri (A.D. 100-300) Portions of all the major parts of the New Testament.
    • Codex Vaticanus (A.D. 300-325) Earliest complete bible written in Greek on animal hide ( vellum)
    • Codex Sinaiticus (A.D. 300) Earliest known complete new testament
    • The Vulgate (A.D. 400) the translation of the bible into Latin by Jerome
    • The Vulgate (A.D. 400) the translation of the bible into Latin by Jerome

God Bless,
