Highly detailed prophecies

Many of the prophecies written in the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms (the Old Testament) are also highly detailed. Some examples:

He would be betrayed by a friend (Judas) and the amount of money that He would be betrayed for; 30 pieces of silver (Psalm 41,10 & Zechariah 11,12), what this money would be used for after His death; Potter’s field (Zephaniah 11,13), His hands and feet would be pierced (the crucifixion) (Psalm 22,17), His legs should not be broken (Psalm 34,21), which was a standard procedure at the end of a crucifixion, instead His side would be pierced with a spear (Zechariah 12,10) including many other specific examples. All of this happened as it was predicted and written down many hundred years earlier (ref. Matthew 24,15 & 26,47-48 & 27,5-7, Luke 23,33, John 19,33-34). Most of the prophecies concerning His crucifixion and death were fulfilled by the Romans, who did not know anything about these old predictions.

One prophecy also tells that a great darkness will come over the world as these things happened. (Amos 8, 9). The Gospel according to Matthew states that from the six to ninth hour there was darkness over the land (Matthew 27, 45). A historian from the Antiquity (Thallus) also tells that a great darkness covered the sun for several hours, dated on Easter in the year 32 AD. Astronomers have rejected a solar eclipse at that time since the Easter was celebrated on a full moon.

Through the fulfillment of all the prophecies, God confirmed that Jesus Christ is the Savior which He promised in the early days, and the way back to Him for all mankind.

"And now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe." (John 14, 29)
