Message Subject Fulfilled Prophecy: Evidence for the Reliability of the Bible

Here is one statistic that I have heard that stuck with me:

Imagine the state of Texas covered entirely with silver dollars, two feet thick. But only one of the coins is marked and then hidden somewhere among the other coins. Now imagine sending a blindfolded man to search throughout the coins until he thinks he's found the coin that is marked. What are the odds that he will find the correct one?

Some say he could never do that. Others say that he could only if the search was rigged somehow. Still others will say it's a ludicrous analogy and a waste of time to even think about it. But these are all responses from individuals that do not understand the significance of faith. The answer is that he could find it, if even by chance. Even though his chances are not good. In fact, his chances are 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000. (Taken from Evidence that Demands a Verdict by Josh McDowell)

That seems like an impossible feat, but yet greater odds than this were overcome when Jesus Christ Himself fulfilled more than 300 prophecies concerning Himself and His life.
