Based on who you discuss things with, the Bible is the runaway top book in distribution with five to six billion copies in circulation. Inspired writing by 40 authors consisting of 66 books have spectacularly fascinating literary work in poetry, history, genealogy, and most importantly prophecy which sets the Bible apart from all other publications.
There are a robust 31,124 verses in the Bible with 8,352 dealing with prophecies making prophecy 27% of the Bible. What makes the prophecies in the Bible so remarkable is that God has a 100% accuracy rate. Not one utterance has missed the mark.
The world swoons over secular prognosticators as Nostradamus, Jeanne Dixon, and Edgar Cayce who all fall under 25% for being accurate.
2 Peter 1:19—We have a more sure word of prophecy, wherefore ye do well that ye take heed, as to a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arises in your hearts.”
The Bible has such a mountain of fulfilled prophecies declared in the Old Testament that it is pointless to debate with those refusing to accept established facts. It is like arguing who was the first president of the United States.
Jesus Christ fulfilled a host of prophetic declarations with his birth, life, ministry, death, resurrection, and ascension. Jesus articulated even more prophecy that would be fulfilled decades, centuries later, and even sayings that are manifesting in our time.
The probability of several sayings as “Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the time of the Gentiles be fulfilled” took several twists and turns through history, however the words of Christ are still resonating today.
By saying “this generation shall not pass away until all be fulfilled”, the words of Jesus declares that events would all take place before the qualifying generation passes away. You cannot step further out than what Jesus established in the four gospels.
The insight of John the Divine who wrote Revelation under divine inspiration of the Holy Spirit on the island of Patmos predicted deadly accurate stipulations that could only be fulfilled during our current time.
John implied that a world-wide religion, world-wide government, world=wide monetary/payment delivery system, and world-wide communication system would be in operation in order for many prophecies to be fulfilled. You cannot begin to argue there was no divine inspiration for these dead on prophecies.
What percentage of prophetic utterance have failed to take place from the Bible?....how about “0”.
The prophecies are so dead center that scoffers and skeptics only babble that the writings must have been done a lot sooner or written after the events took place. This type of whimpering is ludicrous because the Bible was completed before the 4th century, and the majority of writing by verified authors sooner than that. The criticisms still fail to explain how a good portion of prophecy has been coming true from the 20th and now 21st centuries.http://myblessedhope.com/2012/10/23/25-biblical-prophecies-that-have-and-are-being-fulfilled/
Whoever and however inspired the 66 authors, a dominating take on future history was disclosed.
