Chapter 5 – The 70 Weeks of Daniel

THE YEAR OF MESSIAH’S ARRIVAL AND DEATH PROPHESIED


Daniel: 9:24-27 “Seventy weeks (490 years, Hebrew word for weeks is shabua 1 week = 7 years) are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness (Millennial Reign), and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy (Messiah).

Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem (decree of Artaxerxes in 445 BC) unto the Messiah the Prince (1st Advent of Messiah Jesus), shall be seven weeks (49 years), and threescore and two weeks (62 weeks or 434 years): the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

And after threescore and two weeks (434/360 day years) shall Messiah be cut off (killed in the year 32), but not for Himself: and the people of the prince that shall come (Antichrist) shall destroy the city and the sanctuary (2nd Temple- 70 AD); and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
