Prophecy Statistics

“More than a fourth of the Bible is predictive prophecy. Approximately one-third of it has yet to be fulfilled. Both the Old and New Testaments are full of promises about the return of Jesus Christ. Over 1,800 references appear in the Old Testament, and seventeen Old Testament books give prominence to this theme. Of the 260 chapters in the New Testament, there are more than 300 references to the Lord’s return—one out of every thirty verses. Twenty-three of the twenty-seven New Testament books refer to this great event. For every prophecy on the first coming of Christ, there are eight on Christ’s second coming.”—Your Future, George Sweeting

“There are about 120 distinct prophecies of the first coming of Christ in the Old Testament.”—The Popular Bible Prophecy Workbook, Tim LaHaye and Ed Hindson

In 1999 a Gallup poll revealed that 67% of all Americans believed that Jesus Christ would one day return to earth.—Unknown
