Daniel's 70 Weeks Prophecy – Daniel 9:24-27
Monday July 21 – Av 7 in 455 BC (BR) marks the end of the Babylonian Captivity and the start date of Daniel's 70 Weeks Prophecy. This also marks the 4th day of the rebuilding of the Jerusalem Wall that is completed 48 Days later on Sunday September 8 – Elul 25. Monday July 21 – Av 7 is the same day as the 71st anniversary of the start of the burning of Solomon's Temple in 526 BC (BR). This same date on the Gregorian-Hebrew Calendar is Monday February 16 – Shevat 27, 453 BC (GH). This day is 4 days before the start of the 71st Year of The Exile. It is commonly believed that the 70 Weeks referred to in Daniel 9:24 refers to 490 Years (7 X 70 = 490 Years). Daniel 9:25-26 states: "Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the command To restore and build Jerusalem Until Messiah the Prince, There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; The street shall be built again, and the wall, Even in troublesome times. (Daniel 9:26) And after sixty two weeks Messiah shall be cut off." The first "seven weeks" mentioned in verse 25 refers to the period of 49 years for the rebuilding of Jerusalem. The first "seven weeks" period ends on Thursday August 1 – Av 17 in 406 BC (BR) near the end of the Reign of Darius the Persian mentioned in Nehemiah 12:22. It is important to not confuse Darius the Persian with Darius the Mede mentioned in Daniel 5:30 or Darius the son of Ahasuerus in Daniel 9:1. Darius the Mede is also King Ahasuerus who marries Esther in the "month of Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign (Esther 2:16)" in 481 BC. It is assumed that these first seven years are added to the other sixty-two and refers to a total of 483 Years (7 X 69 = 483 Years). The rest of the verse 26 seems to be a prophecy regarding the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD. Daniel's Prophecy ends on Palm "Monday" April 28 – Iyar 11 in 30 AD (BR). On this date Jesus enters Jerusalem to start the events of Easter Week. Daniel's Prophecy is made up of 483 Years plus 40 weeks. The following scenario seems to be a reasonable explanation of this Prophecy that has been a puzzle to many students of Bible Chronology. From the Start of Daniel's "70 Weeks" there are 450 years plus 90 days until the Birth of Jesus on October 20 in 5 BC. Jesus is 33 years old plus 190 Days when he enters Jerusalem on "Palm Monday." Daniel's Prophecy ends on the Monday before Easter April 28 – Iyar 11 in 30 AD as previously stated. On the Gregorian-Hebrew Solar Calendar (GH) this same date is Monday April 1 – Nisan 10 in 30 AD. Nisan 10 is the first day of the Feast of Passover and the day the Lamb is chosen for sacrifice on Nisan 14 that occurs on Friday, the day of the Crucifixion. The extra week in days in Daniel's Prophecy is the 7 Days of Easter Week ending on Sunday May 4 – Iyar 17 in 30 AD with the Resurrection of Jesus. The last week in 7 years is in the future 7 years of Tribulation before the 2nd Coming of Jesus. This and other events of Daniel's life will be included at a later date in "Events of Daniel and the End of The Exile."
