Why We Know The Bible Is Inspired Of God

By T. J. McCrossan, 1929

The marvelous prophecies of the Bible, which have been fulfilled to the very letter, prove it to be inspired of God.

In Gen. 15:13-14, we read, “And God said to Abraham, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them, and they shall afflict them 400 years. Also that nation whom they shall serve I will judge; and afterwards shall they (the Jews) come out with great substance.” These words were spoken to Abraham fully 300 years before Joseph was born, and the Israelites were not made slaves in Egypt until long after Joseph’s death. Then, marvelous to narrate, they were enslaved for 400 years, and when they were loosed from bondage, they went out with great substance just as predicted to Abraham. Read Exodus 12 to confirm these statements. Now how could Abraham have known these future events unless God informed him?

Deut. 28:64-66 gives us a wonderful prophecy regarding the Jews: “And the Lord shall scatter thee among all people, from one end of the earth even to the other . . . And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy feet have rest, but the Lord shall give thee a trembling heart, and sorrow of mind. And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee, and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance for thy life.” Read Milman’s history of the Jews, and you will see that this prediction spoken fully 1400 B.C. has been fulfilled to the very letter.

In Num. 23:9 we have another remarkable prediction regarding the Jews. Here we are told, “This people shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations.” These words were spoken 1400 B.C., and today we see the Jews scattered far and wide among every nation; but, unlike all other people, they never lose their nationality by assimilating themselves with the people amongst whom they dwell: they do dwell alone.

Deut. 28:68 gives us another marvelous prediction regarding the Jews: “And the Lord shall bring these (the Jews) into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee. Thou shalt see it no more again; and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.” Was this ever fulfilled? Were the Jews ever taken by ships into Egypt, and there sold as slaves with no one to purchase them? Yes.

Josephus and Diodorus both tell us, that when Titus took Jerusalem (70 AD.), all the Jews over seventeen years old, both men and women, were sent by ships into Egypt to labor in the mines. There they were actually sold as slaves, but the slave market was so glutted that none would buy; exactly as Moses predicted 1400 years before. Regarding this prophecy see John Urvhart’s, “Wonders of Prophecy,” p. 223 and Bettex’s, “The Bible the Word of God,” p. 110. How did Moses know this would happen fully 1400 years before it came to pass?
