"But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son,"
God's timing is impeccable. He sent His Son to earth at the absolute right moment in history. Josh McDowell has listed over 300 Old Testament prophecies that were fulfilled with precision by Jesus Christ (Josh McDowell, “Evidence That Demands a Verdict,” Vol. 1, pp. 144, 167). In his book called, “Science Speaks,” Dr. Peter Stoner, professor emeritus of science at Westmont College, calculated the probability of one man fulfilling just the major prophecies. He surmised that the odds of one person accidentally fulfilling 8 of these detailed prophecies is 1 in 10 to the 17th power. That amount of silver dollars would cover the state of Texas to a depth of two feet. Now, imagine you took one of those silver dollars, marked it with a red dot and dropped it from an airplane. Then thoroughly stirred up the entire mass. You then find a friend, blindfold him and tell him he can go anywhere in Texas and reach down and try to pull out the coin with the red dot on it. According to Dr. Stoner, those are the same odds of 8 of these prophecies being fulfilled in precise detail by Jesus. What an amazing God!
