How many prophecies are in the Bible?

By George Konig

According to some scholarly estimates, there are nearly 2000 Biblical prophecies.

Some scholars, though, including J. Barton Payne, have arrived at a specific number in their counting of Bible prophecies. In the Encyclopedia of Biblical Prophecy, by Payne, there are a total of 1,817 Biblical prophecies.

Of those prophecies, 1,239 are in the Old Testament, and 578 are in the New Testament.

By Payne's count, the 1,817 prophecies involve 8,352 of the Bible's verses. And, because there are 31,124 verses in the Bible, the number of prophetic verses amounts to about 27 percent of the total number of verses in the Bible.

That means that about one-fourth of the Bible is prophecy.

There are many web sites that explain Bible prophecy, including one at 100prophecies.org, which offers commentary on 100 of the Bible's prophecies.

There are different types of Bible prophecy. Some Bible prophecies predicted details of the birth, life, mission, death and resurrection of a Messiah (Jesus Christ), according to AboutBibleProphecy.com. Other Biblical prophecies foretold of events involving the people and land of Israel, the surrounding nations, and the future of the world.

There also is a group of Biblical prophecies that people sometimes refer to as the End Times prophecies, which speak of how the world, as we know it, will come to an end. While that might sound like a scary topic, it actually is good news for
Christians because the end of the world marks the beginning of something new, and better: eternal life in heaven with God.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16, KJV)

"I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except by me."  Jn.14:6.

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

"If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?"

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
