Prophetic Accuracy - The Amazing Prophecy Of The Fall Of Tyre

The second section of Stoner's book, Science Speaks, is entitled "Prophetic Accuracy." This is where the book becomes absolutely fascinating. You see, fulfilled prophecy is one of the things that makes the Bible the most unique book in the world. 

The Bible contains hundreds of fulfilled prophecies concerning towns, and cities, and nations, and empires, and individuals. 

In contrast, there are no fulfilled prophecies in the Book of Mormon, the Quran, the Hindu Vedras, or the sayings of Buddha and Confucius.


Yet, the Bible is full of prophecies that have already been fulfilled in detail. Consider, for example, Daniel's prophecy made during the time of the Babylonian Empire in which he prophesied that Babylon would be overthrown by the Medo-Persian Empire, which would subsequently fall to the Greeks, who would be followed by the Romans.

Jeremiah prophesied that the Babylonian captivity of the Jews would last 70 years, and it did.

And then there is Isaiah, who prophesied that a man named Cyrus would release the Jews from Babylonian captivity. He presented this prophecy 150 years before Cyrus was born!

Stoner focuses in on a prophecy in Ezekiel 26 concerning the city of Tyre. Seven prophecies are contained in this chapter which were written in 590 BC.

- Nebuchadnezzar shall conquer the city.

- Other nations will also attack the city.

- Its stones and timbers will be thrown into the sea.

- The city will be reduced to a bare rock.

- Its fall will spread fear to other cities.

- Fishermen will spread their nets there.

- The original site will never be rebuilt.


Four years after this prophecy was given, Nebuchadnezzar laid siege to Tyre. The siege lasted 13 years. And, when the city finally fell in 573 BC, it was discovered that everything of value had been moved to a nearby island. 

But, 241 years later, Alexander the Great arrived on the scene, fearing that the fleet of Tyre might be used against his homeland, he decided to take the island where the city had been moved to. 

He accomplished this goal by building a causeway from the mainland to the island, and he did that by using all the building materials from the ruins of the old city. Neighboring cities were so frightened by Alexander's conquest that they immediately opened their gates to him. 

And ever since that time, Tyre has remained in ruins and is a place where fishermen spread their nets. Thus, every detail of the prophecies concerning Tyre were fulfilled exactly as predicted.

Now, the unique thing that Stoner did in his book is to apply the mathematical science of probability to these prophecies and their fulfillment. He pointed out the conquering of Babylon is 1 in 3. Attacked by other nations, 1 in 5. Debris thrown into the sea, 1 in 10. These are odds. Reduced to bare rock, 1 in 500. Causes other cities to fear, 1 in 5. Fishermen spread their nets, 1 in 10. Old site will never be rebuilt, 1 in 20.



Stoner calculated that the probability that all the prophecies about Tyre could have been made in human wisdom is: 1 in 7.5 times 10 to the 7th power, or 1 in 75 million!

Stoner proceeds to calculate the probabilities of 11 prophecies concerning 9 different cities and concerning the Eastern Gate and the Temple Mount. And, combining all these prophecies, he concludes that the probability of these 11 prophecies coming true, if written in human wisdom, is 1 in 5.76 to 10 to the 59th power. 

Needless to say, this is a number beyond the realm of possibility and demonstrates the supernatural accuracy of Bible Prophecy.
