Prophecy in the Bible and in the Qur’an

My dear friend Adrian Ebens answered the questions “is the Bible all inspired by God? And what does that mean?” on my blog titled Is the Qur’an inspired by God? as following:

“For me personally, the proof of the Bible's inspired position comes through the prophecies of the Bible and specifically the prophecies about the coming of Christ. I lay out my evidence in These Charts

On one of these charts I mention only 49 prophecies out of around 300 concerning Christ. The probability of these all being fulfilled is less that the Big Bang, yet they all came true. This gives me powerful evidence for its divine origin.

Has Anyone Ever Seen God?

The answer to this question in the Bible is yes and no!

Yes, many have seen him.
Genesis 12:7 The Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” So he built can altar there to the Lord who had appeared to him.

Gen. 18:1 Now the LORD appeared to him by the oaks of Mamre, while he was sitting at the tent door in the heat of the day.”
