Messiah would be born in Bethlehem. Micah 5:2. He was to be rejected and his body pierced, Zech. 12:10, and he was to have a violent death, Zech. 13:7.
God’s timing is my timing! Daniel 9:25 (NIV): “From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One,[a] the ruler, comes, there will be . . . [483 years].” Jesus was hailed, and prophecy fulfilled, on Palm Sunday, in the year 32 AD. The fulfillment was documented in John 12:13 when the people said, “‘Hosanna!’ ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!’ ‘Blessed is the king of Israel!'”
David wrote Psalm 22 a thousand years before the crucifixion. In fact, David wrote Psalm 22 over 600 years before crucifixion was even invented! Yet Psalm 22 refers to the piercing of Messiah’s hands and feet and the casting of lots for His clothes. Read more about crucifixion here.
Daniel said that Messiah would be killed before the destruction of the temple in 70 AD. “After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary . . . . [a]nd desolations have been decreed.” Daniel 9:26.
Jerusalem and the temple were destroyed by the Roman general Titus in A.D. 70, thirty-eight years after Jesus Christ was crucified. Jesus foretold of the destruction of the temple as recorded in Matthew 24:1-2. Over one million Jews were killed during the A.D. 70 invasion of Jerusalem.
The Holy Spirit does not calculate the odds. What are the chances that Messiah would fulfill all 365 prophecies? Even fulfilling 8 of them was a God-sized miracle. E=mJC3’s Prophecy 101 page relates that “Josh McDowell [in Evidence That Demands a Verdict] calculates the odds that one person would fulfil [sic] only 8 prophecies at 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000 (1 in 10 to the 17th power).”
