      Great question! Hundreds of events prophesied in the Bible have already occurred. Before Jesus came to this world, more than 300 Old Testament prophecies described the events and circumstances of his life.
      Over 700 years before his birth the prophet Micah foretold that Jesus would be born in Bethlehem —Micah 5:2. About 1,000 years before the death of Jesus, David foretold he would be resurrected from the dead.—Psalm 16:10.

      Many prophecies focus on the extraordinary events of his life. Here are a few example:

      Jesus would be born of a virgin—Isaiah 7:4 (fulfilled—Matthew 1:18, 24, 25)
      He would come from the seed of Abraham—Genesis 22:18 (fulfilled—Luke 3:34)
      He would be a teacher of parables—Psalm 78:2 (fulfilled—Matthew 13:34)
      Jesus would be betrayed by a friend—Psalm 41:9 (fulfilled—Matthew 10:4)
      He would be silent before his accusers—Psalm 35:11 (fulfilled—Matthew 27:12)
      He was to be wounded and bruised—Isaiah 53:5 (fulfilled—Matthew 27:26)
      He would be hit and spit on—Isaiah 50:6 (fulfilled—Matthew 26:67)
      Jesus would be crucified with thieves—Isaiah 53:12 (fulfilled—Matthew 27:38)
      He was to be hated without a cause—Psalm 69:4 (fulfilled—John 15:25)
      People shook their heads—Psalm 109:25 (fulfilled—Matthew 27:39)
      His garments would be parted and lots cast for them—Psalm 22:18 (fulfilled—John 19:23, 24)
      He would suffer great thirst—Psalm 22:15 (fulfilled—John 19:28)
      Jesus was offered gall and vinegar to drink—Psalm 69:21 (fulfilled—Matthew 27:34)
      His side was pierced—Zechariah 12:10 (fulfilled—John 19:34)
      He committed himself to God—Psalm 31:5 (fulfilled—Luke 23:46)
      None of his bones would be broken—Psalm 34:20 (fulfilled—John 19:33)
      He would be buried in the tomb of a rich man—Isaiah 53:9 (fulfilled—Matthew 27:57-60)
      Upon his death there would be darkness over the land—Amos 8:9 (fulfilled—Matthew 27:45).

      One of the most powerful and inspiring prophecies is found in Daniel 9. There, in the prophecy of 70 weeks, the year that Jesus would become the Messiah (AD 30) and the year he would be killed (AD 33) are foretold. Skeptics have a hard time with this because it was so clearly fulfilled.

      There are also many prophecies in the New Testament. In Luke 21 Jesus predicted that Herod’s Temple would be completely destroyed (Luke 21: 5,6). History documents this destruction in AD 70 by the armies of Rome.

      Jesus then made a remarkable prediction concerning the destruction of Jerusalem. He said, “And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judea flee to the mountains.” —Luke 21: 20, 21.

      After the Roman general Vespasian overthrew all the fortified places in Israel, he began the siege of Jerusalem. Then a strange thing happened. Political instability broke out in Rome at the death of the Emperor. Vespasian withdrew his armies and rushed back to Rome. The Christians in Jerusalem recalled Jesus’ words and fled to the mountains to hide. Titus, son of the new Emperor Vespasian, returned and, along with the temple, destroyed Jerusalem in AD 70. Because of Jesus’ prophecy the Christians escaped the carnage by Rome.

      You asked specifically about prophecies that show the Bible is true. But there are some scientific facts revealed in the Bible that have only been discovered in the last 100 years or so. If you are interested we can send you more information but this may be enough for now. May God guide you to a stronger faith in the Bible as His word. – Christian Questions
