Why do the critics of the Christian faith always concentrate their efforts on trying to destroy the credibility of the Bible, in particularly the credibility of the Bible’s prophetic texts? Is it not because prophecy attests to the Bible’s utter reliability and absolute truthfulness?

Think about it. Christianity’s critics may attempt to explain away Israel’s miraculous crossing of the Red Sea as a mere wading through the shallow waters of the Reed Sea. They may attempt to explain away the manna in the wilderness as a common sap that oozed from a desert plant. They may attempt to explain away the fire that fell on Elijah’s Mount Carmel sacrifice as a chance bolt of lightning. They may attempt to explain away the resurrection of our Lord as nothing more than the hallucinations of His disciples. And they may attempt to explain away the Apostle Paul’s miraculous conversion on Damascus Road as a sunstroke. Nevertheless, if the Bible predicts the future and its predictions come true, the critics of Christianity are silenced. They are left with nothing to say.
