There are literally thousands of prophecies in the Old Testament that are fulfilled by the coming of Jesus Christ in the New Testament. Here we will look at just a few of them. George Heron, a French mathematician, calculated that the odds of one man fulfilling just 40 of these prophecies are 1 in 10 to the power of 157. That is a 1 followed by 157 zeros. Compare it to this; your odds of winning the lottery are 14 followed by 6 zeros.
