Bible Prophecy

Thirty Pieces of Silver

While ordinary books tell stories, the Bible FOREtells stories.

The Bible has a 100% accuracy rate with regard to prophecy.  This is what makes the Bible so remarkable.

The Bible contains over 300 Messianic prophecies.  These are prophecies concerning Jesus Christ (the physical Messiah of Israel, and the spiritual Messiah of the entire human race).  Intricate details about the family line, birth, life, betrayal, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ fill the Old Testament (also known as the Jewish Bible or the Tanakh).

For example, the exact amount of money for which Jesus would be betrayed was foretold 500 years before Judas committed the act.

Then I said to them, “If it is agreeable to you, give me my wages; and if not, refrain.” So they weighed out for my wages THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER.

— Zechariah 11:12

 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and said, “What are you willing to give me if I deliver Him to you?” And they counted out to him THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER. So from that time he sought opportunity to betray Him.

—  Matthew 26:14-16

This is just one of hundreds of Messianic prophecies.  The odds of any one person satisfying just a handful of these prophecies is astronomical.  Jesus fulfills every single one.
