Christmas Math

This is not your average Christmas post. You know me and math, so when I read this in the book, The Greatest Words Ever Spoken, by Steven K. Scott, I had to share it with you this Christmas.

In the book, Mr. Scott has taken all the words of Jesus and organized them into categories. So if you want to see what Jesus said about something, it is all laid out for you in this book.

The beginning of Chapter one shares how Math professors Peter W. Stoner and Robert C. Newman calculated the statistical probability of Jesus fulfilling just forty-eight of over the hundreds of prophecies described in the Bible. The odds were 1 in 10 to the 157th power. That’s a 1 in 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 chance. (I hope I included 157 zeros, if not, it still looks impressive!)

To put it in perspective, let’s say you built a wooden box so big that the solar system would fit inside it. The you filled that box with silver BB’s and placed just one copper BB in the box. The chances of anyone reaching into the box and picking out the copper BB on the first try would be trillions of times more likely than the odds of one person fulfilling all the prophecies that Jesus fulfilled.

No occurrence in history or physical science has been verified with a higher degree of statistical certainty than the fact that Jesus is exactly who He claimed to be—the Messiah, the Son of the Living God.

So feel free to share this Christmas math at your family gatherings this holiday season, and astound them with the goodness of God!

      1. I love this! I heard the same thing taught at the Herald’s Trust Evangelism School years ago. I think it was presented as “cover the UK in fifty pence coins to a depth of three feet and hide a one pound coin under it somewhere…and you have to find it first time.”
        God bless you today sister 🙏

  2. So, if Christmas Day is on the 25th of December, and today is the 23rd……🤔, statically speaking, there is a 100% chance that Christmas Day is 2 days away!! (and NOW all of that cypher in’ gave me a headache)

  3. I just shared with my husband. This is truly amazing. Our God is such a good God. There is none like Him. Hallelujah, all praise to Yahweh. The God who was and is and is to come, the Allmighty! Praise His holy name. 🙏
