Italian term or phrase: are so great
I've read that if you put into a computer all the prophecies about Christ that were fulfilled in Jesus, the odds that they could have been accidentally fulfilled in one person are so GREAT as to make it impossible.

GREAT ha un senso ironico? Significa che le probabilità sono invece molto basse ?

Grazie in anticipo!

...sono talmente poche...


Explanation:
No, non mi pare ironico. Credo a un errore dell'autore, che avrebbe dovuto dire ARE SO LOW: le probabilita' che per puro caso quelle profezie si siano realizzate tutte in una sola persona sono talmente poche, da rendere la cosa impossibile.
