In the person of Jesus around 425 Old Testament prophesies were fulfilled. All of these prophesies were recorded at least 400 years before His birth. Could He have read the scriptures and decided to fulfil them himself? Not unless He had power over such things as His place of birth, His lineage, the actions of Kings and rulers, the actions of countless other people and was also prepared to be hated, suffer and die a most gruesome of deaths. Jesus Christ was and is the fulfilment of the Old Testament. Have faith, not blind faith but faith built on fact!
