The probabilities are mentioned below with justifications:
Prophesy Fulfilled In
Probability
1.. Psa. 22:16 They pierced His
hands and His feet
John 19:34, 37; 20:27
JustificationAssuming that
population of jeruselam at that time
was 25,000 and he number of soldiers
were 5,000
Probability of Jesus getting pierced
=(1/25000)*(5000/25000) = 1 in
125000
2. Isa. 53:3b Rejected Matthew 27:21-23
JustificationAssuming not all
rejected him, so lets assume there 40
% of the population reject him
Probability of getting rejected =
40/100 = 2 in 5
3. Jer. 31:22 Born of a virgin Matthew 1:18-20
JustificationAssuming the
population of female at that time be
10,000 out of which no of virgin will
be 5% and a virgin giving birth to a
child has a probability of let’s assume
0.000001
Probability of getting born to virgin –
(1/100000)(1/20)(1/100000) = 5 * 10
^ (-11)
4. Joel 2:32 Offer salvation to all
mankind
Romans 10:9-13
Justification- Out of all the people
only Jesus offered salvation to the
mankind
Probabilty – 1 in 170 million people
of the world

Justification–Jesus lives for 33.5
years which is 12,227. He could of

Probability of getting born in
Bethlehem is 1 in 1,00,000
7. Hag. 2:23 Descendant of
Zerubbabel
Luke 2:27-32
Justification – Let us assume that
Zerubbabel had 100 family members
Probability of Jesus being the
descendent of Zerubbabel
= 1/100 * 5 *(10)^-11
8. Zech. 11:12-
13a
Betrayed for thirty
pieces of silver
Matthew 26:14-15
Justification - Let’s assume the
population of Judas at that time be
2,000
So getting betrayed = 1/2000
Answer 2 - Peter Stoner has taken the probability of Jesus entering Jeruselum riding on a donkey
as 1/100 wherein he would have assumed that there will be 100 donkeys in the place where Jesus
lived. But I feel that the number of donkeys taken by him is a conservative number, there would
be ~ 500 – 1000 donkeys where Jesus lived. So if I am asked to give a probability I will assign it
1/500
Answer 3 – The Probability of all the sequences happening will be multiplying all the
independent probabilities which will give the overall probability as 2.22 * 10^(-45)
Answer 4 – I believe that there is a GOD who is the Almighty and this whole universe is created
by HIM. I believe is the only omnipresent who decides who dies and who gets a birth. Taking
this my belief which has a probability of 1, I do believe HE has the power of creating Prophets
like Jesus Christ, who can at HIS will , be able to meet any prophecy, whose probability of
meeting prophecies if and only if HE wants is 1
I don’t know why others belief differently, but it is very natural. GOD has given humans mind to
make their-own judgments. There are two things one can do either agree or disagree, whose
probability is 50%. I believe people have different opinions because there is a lot of probability
to differ which is 1/2
