Josh McDowell relayed the statistical probability of one person fulfilling the Messianic prophecies as per the research of Peter Stoner, Professor Emeritus of Science at Westmont College. He calculated the probability of one man fulfilling just eight of the three hundred plus Messianic prophecies. “He conservatively estimated that the chance of one man fulfilling all eight prophecies was one in 10^17.” To illustrate how large the number 10^17 is (a figure with 17 zeros), Stoner gave this illustration; “Suppose that we take 10^17 silver dollars and lay them on the face of Texas. They will cover all of the state two feet deep. Now mark one of these silver dollars and stir the whole mass thoroughly, all over the state. Blindfold a man and tell him that he can travel as far as he wishes, but he must pick up one silver dollar and say that this is the right one. What chance would he have of getting the right one?” In Jesus, not just eight but over three hundred were fulfilled!
