Jesus-Christ: the fulfilment of prophecy

How can we know that the Bible is the Word of God ? What is unique about the Bible that sets it apart from all other religious books? Is there any evidence that the Bible is truly God’s Word?

These types of questions must be seriously examined if we are to determine the validity of the Bible’s claim to be the very Word of God, divinely inspired, and totally sufficient for all matters of faith and practice. The apostle Paul has not doubt that the Bible is the very Word of God. He says:' All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:15-17).

There are both internal and external evidences that the Bible is truly God’s Word. The internal evidences are those things within the Bible that testify of its divine origin. One of the first internal evidences that the Bible is truly God’s Word is seen in its unity. Even though it is really sixty-six individual books, written on three continents, in three different languages, over a period of approximately 1500 years, by more than 40 authors who came from many walks of life, the Bible remains one unified book from beginning to end without contradiction.

Another of the internal evidences that indicates the Bible is truly God’s Word is the prophecies it contains. The Bible contains hundreds of detailed prophecies relating to the future of individual nations including Israel, certain cities, and mankind. Other prophecies concern the coming of One who would be the Messiah, the Savior of all who would believe in Him. Biblical prophecies are extremely detailed. There are over three hundred prophecies concerning Jesus Christ in the Old Testament. 
Not only was it foretold where He would be born and His lineage, but also how He would die and that He would rise again. There simply is no rational way to explain the fulfilled prophecies in the Bible other than by divine origin. There is no other religious book with the extent or type of predictive prophecy that the Bible contains.
I have attached a document written by D. James Kennedy who sums up all the prophecies writtent about Jesus-Christ. Just click the link below.
