That should be impressive enough. But then Stoner analyzed the probability of 48 prophecies being manifested in one person. He concluded that the probability is one chance in 10 to the 157th power. That’s a 1 with 157 zeroes behind it.

Again, Lee Strobel came to my rescue with a more concrete example. He interviewed scientists about their estimate of the number of atoms in the universe. An atom is so small it takes about a million of them to equal the width of a human hair. So he ended up with a very large number — but still too small. It turns out that the odds of 48 Old Testament prophecies coming true in any one individual are the same a someone randomly finding a predetermined, specific atom out of all the atoms in a trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, billion universes the same size as our own.
