One proof that Jesus was who he said he was is the mathematical calculations written in the Bible that identify the exact days we call Palm Sunday and the Crucifixion of Jesus as they were prophesied in the Book of Daniel.  Daniel saw in a vision the empires of the world up to the time of the Messiah.  Daniel gave this prophecy in his telling King Nebuchadnezzar the  king's dreams and giving the detailed interpretations.  Daniel did this in the 6th Century B.C..  It all would begin with a prophecy for an event that would happen centuries later in 445 B.C..  If ever you were looking for scientific proof that Jesus is the Christ, here it is.  Get your calculator out, or pencil and pad and do the math for yourself and see that hidden in every Bible in the world is the mathematical proof the Jesus stepped into "Holy Week" on "Palm Sunday" on a date predicted centuries before he was born.
