"Therefore, in the whole range of history, except the prophecies of Scripture (the Bible), there is not a single instance of a prediction, expressed in unequivocal language, and descending to any minuteness, which bears the slightest claim to fulfillment. 'Suppose,' says Dr. O. Gregory, that there were only 50 prophecies in the Old Testament (instead of 333) concerning the first coming of Christ (to be born), giving details of the coming Messiah and all meet in the person of Jesus.....the probability of chance fulfillment as calculated by mathematicians according to the theory of probabilities, is less than one in 1,125,000,000,000,000. Now add only two more elements to these 50 prophecies, and fix the TIME and the PLACE at which they must happen and the immense improbability that they will take place by chance exceeds all the power of numbers to express (or the mind of man to grasp). This is enough, one would think, to silence for ever all pleas for chance as furnishing an unbeliever the least opportunity of escape from the evidence of prophecy."
