Born of a virgin — This is the supreme sign to anyone on earth. It was only done once in human history.

Historicity — No major secular historian denies the person of Jesus Christ.

There are about 86,000 quotes by early church writers during first 300 years which cover all but 11 verses of the New Testament.

Miracles of Jesus — The Talmud written from 75A.D. to 500A.D. verified Jesus' miracles of healing by his most ardent detractors. They attributed Jesus' power to the supernatural realm of the devil.

World impact — Time is marked according to the appearance of Jesus Christ on earth.

Cultural impact — See: Our changed society

Fulfilled prophecy — The Old Testament lists 456 Messianic Prophecies and most of them are already completed.

To fulfill only 48 of 256 prophecies requires the probability of one chance out of 10157 chances. That probability has more values than the atoms in the universe. It takes supernatural oversight to accomplish this feat and this points to God.


Christ Jesus possessed these attributes of GOD:
