Is Jesus God? Proof that Jesus is who He SAYS He was!

We all know that there are thousands of different beliefs a person can have in this world. Some people are Christians, others are Jews, still others are Muslim. Many worship the God of the Hindus, follow the Kaballah, some are Free Thinkers, some worship nature, others worship money. Still others are Agnostic and some people don’t even believe in a god at all (athiest).

Obviously, the huge majority of you who follow this blog are believers of Christ Jesus… but have you EVER wondered if there is scientific proof that proves that Jesus is God? Have you ever wondered if Jesus is the only way to God?

Have you ever thought, ‘Some of my friends or co-workers worship Allah… or perhaps are super-intelligent athiests who won’t believe in God, unless there’s proof?’

Is there any way to put scientific or mathematical proof to our faith in Jesus… or do we have to just blindly believe the Bible just SOLEY by our faith alone?

(1) Mathematics (Statistics) proves that Jesus is truly who the Bible says He was.
Okay, so I know that when you read the words mathematics & statistics, that doesn’t sound very sexy… and probably half of you stopped reading at that point… but I promise you, I’ll keep it short and to the point. (really, it’s a promise!)

That said… some people think that the Old Testament is a drag and a bore… with some of it’s many genealogy lists and numbers (and honestly speaking, I tend to pass these numbers by myself when I’m reading)… but what many people don’t know is that one of the Old Testament’s MAJOR good points, is that it proves that Jesus is who he said he was… the Son of God.

In case you didn’t know, the Old Testament contains 39 seperate books (the Catholic O.T. has 46). These books were written over the span of some 3,000 years by over 25 different Jewish authors.

Now here’s where it gets interesting…

Many of the prophecies and statements in this 3,000 year-old compilation of books… were fulfilled in the life of ONE man. Can you guess who?

Jesus fulfilled over 48 Old Testament prophecies in His life. Some of these included:

* Being born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14)
* Born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2)
* He would be preceded by a messenger – John the Baptist (Isaiah 40:3)
* His side would be pierced (Zechariah 12:10)
* He would be crucified (Psalm 22)
* He was a healer (Isaiah 53:5)

So is this a coincidence? The answer is ‘No’.

Using the modern science of probability… a scientist named Peter Stoner, stated that the probability for just 8 of those 48 prophecies being fulfilled in the life of one man… would be 1 in 10^17. That would be 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000 chance.

To make this number more understandable… if you take 10^17 silver dollars, they would fill the WHOLE entire state of Texas… two feet deep! Now if you take just ONE of those silver dollar, mark it, and throw it into the mix, then blindfold a man and tell him to pick up that marked dollar… the chances of him pocking up the right dollar is the SAME probability of just 8 of those 48 prophecies of Jesus being fulfilled in the lifetime of one man.

That simply does not happen by coincidence… it is divine order.

So basically put… statistics prove that Jesus is who he says he was based on O.T. prophecy. And if that is the case, then that means that we can logically believe and TRUST whatever word Jesus gives in the Bible about himself… or us. And one of those statements is, “…I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 8:12)


(2) Science (Physics) proves that there is a God in this Universe

There are some Christians out there who believe that science is “a tool of the devil”… and then there are many athiests out there who believe that God is just “a happy fairy tale, created to satisfy the spiritual needs for dumb people”.

I believe that as both spiritual and intelligent people… it is a MUST for us to embrace both God and science.

Why do I say this?

Because God (the Bible) explains ‘WHY things happen”…while science explains ‘HOW things happen”

The Bible tells us WHY God created the world, the universe, the oceans, the animals, and us human beings. It tells us WHY there is evil in the world, and WHY we need a savior, and WHY we exist on this earth (our purpose).

But don’t science and the Bible disagree in a lot of the major stuff? The answer is ‘No’ for the most part.

Science goes into greater depth and tells HOW these things happen. Science also gives us things called ‘Laws’ and ‘Theories’.

A LAW is something that is proven to be true, because we have evidence… and a THEORY is something that we think MIGHT be true, but we can’t actually prove it because there’s not enough evidence.

Gravity is a law. It is proven that if you jump off a building and are not Superman, you will fall. No ifs, ands, or buts.

Evolution and the Big Bang are theories. Never will you see scientists call it the law of evolution or the big bang law. It is always called the theory of evolution… or the Big Bang theory.

Now while we worship God, our Creator… and not worship science or the creation (Romans 1:25)… science does in fact PROVE that there is a God in the universe.

Not meaning to sound too geeky (no offense to all you smart people reading this)… the First LAW of Thermodynamics in physics simply states that ENERGY ‘can be transformed… but is NEITHER created or destroyed’.

In other words, energy always has been… it has no beginning and it has no end. Energy was the 1st thing in existence… and everything in this universe and this world that we behold with our eyes… was created by this energy. Energy is eternal. Energy transformed is what gives people, the trees, the birds of the air and fish of the sea life.

Does this kind of sound like somebody you know?

God in His Word states several things about Himself:

* “There were no gods formed before me… and there will be none after me” (Isaiah 43:10)
* “All things in this world were made through Him & without Him nothing was made that has been made.” (John 1:3)
* “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” (Genesis 2:7)

In the end, our faith is what brings us to God. But it’s always nice to have some scientific proof to back what we believe in!
