Old Testament Prophecies Contained in the Old Testament, there are more than 300 specific prophecies alone that concerned Jesus, the promised coming Messiah. These were written from 450 to more than 2,000 years before his birth.

It is beyond the realm of calculation to figure the probability of all 300-plus coming to pass in one life.
