THE ACCURACY OF BIBLE PROPHECY BIBLE PROPHECY, with Dr Richard Kent
The Bible is a prophetic book, with over 25% of it referring to future
events. It clearly foretells the future because God lives outside ourfourth dimension, known as Time.
Jesus Christ said, “Before Abraham was born, I am”
(John 8: 58). This confirms that He existed before the
birth of Abraham.
The Bible states that Jesus Christ is God, and pre-existed everything (John 1: 1)
The amazing accuracy of Bible Prophecy in Daniel 9:23–27, according to the New
American Standard Bible
This amazing work on the book of Daniel was first
discovered by Sir Robert Anderson, Chief Inspector of
Scotland Yard. He wrote an excellent book, “The Coming
Prince”, which has become one of the most important
books in Biblical Eschatology.
The most mathematically amazing Scripture in the Bible is found in Daniel 9:25-26. In this
Scripture the angel Gabriel is foretelling the exact date when Jesus Christ, the anticipated
Messiah, would come to Jerusalem. This prophecy is mathematically correct to the very day.
There is simply no other book on Planet Earth which predicts the future with such stunning
accuracy! Only God could reveal the future with such pin-point accuracy, proving without any
doubt the Supernatural origin of the Bible.
The relevant text is as follows:
Daniel 9: 25-26
“Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the command to restore and build
Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince, there shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; the street
shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times. And after the sixty-two weeks
Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself.”
This is a complicated mathematical prophecy, discovered by Sir Robert Anderson, in which the
exact date of entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem is precisely 173,880 days after Nehemiah gave
the order to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem in Nehemiah 2: 1-8.
The command to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem was given on 4 th March 444 B.C., and Jesus
Christ entered Jerusalem exactly 173,880 days later (on Palm Sunday) on 29 th March 33 A.D.
For a concise explanation of this complicated mathematical prophecy, we have quoted the
teaching from the New American Standard Bible, the New Open Bible Study Edition, on
- “The vision of the sixty-nine weeks in Daniel 9:25-26 pinpoints the coming of the
- The decree of Daniel 9:25 took place on March
4th, 444 BC (Nehemiah 2:1-8).
- The sixty-nine weeks of seven years equals
483 years, or 173,880 days (using 360-day
- This leads to March 29th, A.D.33, the date of the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into
- This is checked by noting that 444 BC to AD 33 is 476 years, and 476 times 365.24219
days per year equals 173,855 days.
- Adding 25 days for the difference between March 4th and March 29th gives 173,880
- It should be noted that the Babylonians used a 360 day calendar, which must be
converted to our current Solar Years, of 365 days. These 360 day years are commonly
called prophetic years.
- Thus, the exact day when the Messiah would come to Jerusalem, riding on a donkey,
was predicted by Gabriel to the very day.”
The means of arrival of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, to Jerusalem was accurately
prophesied in Zechariah 9:9
“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is
coming to you; he is just and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a
The Bible is the only supernatural book on Planet Earth. No other book prophecies the future with
such stunning accuracy.
