     In one word,  FAITH, that is how, someone has sat down come up with a figure of 300 not me, that was the number posted in the first post on this string.
      Your a math teacher, glad to hear it, but don't let logic get in the way of simple fun,  

I guess I don't see badly incorrect maths as "good fun".

But the OP did talk about "proof", which implies someone somewhere along the line thought it was more than just fun.

and why are you so defensive if you believe in the ressurection, your saying you believe in  Jesus Christ,.......you said ...."but that is irrelevent to the maths".........really,
I'm just defensive about the maths - thats all.
I have no doubt that what it attempts to prove is true, I'm arguing that the "proof" is faulty.

Quote
Besides you can't say well he might have fullfill 30 out of 100, 299 out of all 300 (what ever that number might be), I'm sure you understand that to be who he is, (the true Messiah) he has to full filled all prophecies up to this day and age......
Those that talk about the messiah, yes.
But suppose we took one of the prophesies that we see Him as having fulfilled but which was not recognised as a messianic prophesy before 33AD (say).  Let us imagine a world where he fullfilled all the other same prophesies as he did really except that one.  The we would never have identified that as a messianic prophesy, and so would never have worried about him having fullfilled it.

Now imagine that there are other prophesies littered throughout the OT like that, that he didn't fulfill - we would never know.

This kind of identification is vitally important if you are trying to calculate the probablility of him fullfilling a given number of prophesies.

On the other hand, it is all irrelevent, IMHO, because there are a tiny handful of important prophesies that are vitally important and convincing, which He did fulfill, and he did fulfill all those prophesies that were pre-identifiable.

If you counted up the latter - those that the Jews have always recognised as messianic, and thought about those, you would be off to a better start towards calculating an interesting probability figure.

Except for dealing with these:
Quote
and I place my life that he fullfill the prophecies that haven't occure yet like the second coming ect ect ect..
.

Quote
No one is taken math and ruinning it down, it started with a simple number. For simple folk to understand, in all probablity there are more than 300......
I'm not offended - I'm just trying to correct peoples' ideas about probability.

Quote
but I take it by faith that he full fill allllllll 300 mention in the first string.......don't you?  

yes
Quote
And if you agree end of story right?
yes as far as faith is concerned
no as regards the maths


MATH.......thats like a four letter word to me, walll looky thar, it is a for letter word. Boy howdy am I sure glad that wasn't a long word like a big number like 9 or something    Grin    Like I said I'm not a math person, I have to take it in college this fall so who know maybe I'll be asking you some math question.  But as far as prophecies go then thats easy math........all + all= all,  Smiley
Blessing to you and yours.

 Smiley Nope, faith comes with out proof, or it wouldn't be faith.  Actually for me its the reverse of that it takes faith to prove math, some things just don't make sense in math for me. But then I can't expalin how the red sea parted either...... Grin

No.  Maths only ever proves things about maths.
