Supplemental Notes:
Daniel\u2019s 70 Weeks
The 69 Weeks

This amazing prophecy in the Old Testa- ment predicted the very day that Jesus pre- sented Himself as the Meshiach Nagid, the Messiah the King, to Jerusalem.

The 70th Week

Jesus Himself highlighted this passage as the key to understanding all other prophe- cies concerning His Return.

Daniel is part of the Old Testament, which was trans- lated into Greek around 285-270B.C. Although Daniel is one of the most authenticated books of the Bible, this serves to easily establish its existence long be- fore the events it predicts. This Greek version of the Old Testament is known as the Septuagint (abbrevi- ated LXX on the diagram, page 7).

Four disciples came to Jesus for a confidential proph- ecy briefing on His Second Coming (Matthew 24-25; Mark 13-14; and Luke 21-22). Jesus highlighted this very passage as the key to prophecy (Mt 24:15).

Sabbatical Years

A Sabbath for the land was ordained by God (Lev 25:1-22; 26:33-35; Deut 15). Seventy \u201csevens\u201d imply weeks ofy e a r s (Gen 29:27, et al). Failure to keep the Sabbath of the land was basis for 70 years cap- tivity (2 Chr 36:19-21). Note: Focus of entire proph- ecy isI s r a e l , not the Gentile world (Daniel 9:24).

360-Day Years
All ancient calendars were based on a 360-day cal-
All these calendars were based on a 360-day year;
typically, twelve 30-day months.

(In ancient Chaldea, their calendar was based on a 360-day year and it is from this Babylonian tradi- tion that we have 360 degrees in a circle, 60 min- utes to an hour, 60 seconds in each minute, etc.)

All Calendars Change in 701B.C.

In 701B.C., all calendars appear to have been reor- ganized. Numa Pompilius, the second king of Rome, reorganized the original calendar of 360 days per year by adding 5 days per year.

King Hezekiah, Numa\u2019s contemporary, reorganized his Jewish calendar by adding a month each Jewish leap year (on a cycle of 7 every 19 years).

A fascinating conjecture as to the cause of this cal- endar change is detailed in Signs in the Heavens, a Briefing Package exploring the possible antics of the Planet Mars.

The Biblical calendar uses 360-day years (Genesis 7:24; 8:3,4, etc.). We are indebted to Sir Robert Anderson\u2019s milestone work for this insight (see Bib- liography).

Scope (Verse 24)
1) The focus of the passage is on theJews, not the
Church or the Gentile world.
2) The six major items listed have yet to be completed:

to finish the transgressions;
to make an end of sins;
to make reconciliation for iniquity;
to bring in everlasting righteousness;
to seal up (close authority of) the vision;
to anoint the godesh gadashim, the Holy of


The key to understanding this passage is to realize that the 70 \u201cWeeks\u201d are not all contiguous. (At least 40 years +...)

The 69 Weeks (Verse 25)
The Trigger: (terminus ad quo)
The Decrees to \u201cRebuild Jerusalem\u201d?

1) Cyrus, 537B.C., Ezra 1:2-4;
2) Darius, Ezra 6:1-5, 8, 12;
3) Artaxerxes, 458B.C,. Ezra 7:11-26;
4) Artaxerxes, 445B.C., Neh 2:5-8, 17, 18.

(1) (2) & (3) were to build theT e m p l e . Only the last
one (4) was to rebuild the city, the walls, etc. Note:

62\u201d? Time to build the city? Time to close the OT
canon? Time between Testaments?
The Target (terminus ad quem)
The Meshiach Nagid: \u201cThe Messiah the King.\u201d The

prediction is to the presentation of the Messiah the King (\u201cNagid\u201d is first used of King Saul). On sev- eral occasions in the New Testament when they at- tempted to take Jesus as a King, He invariably declined, \u201cMine hour is not yet come.\u201d (Jn 6:15; 7:30, 44; etc.) Then one day, Hea r r a n g e s it.

The Triumphal Entry: All four Gospels, Mt 21:1-9;
Mk 11:1-10; Lk 19:29-39; Jn 12:12-16. 10th of Nisan:

\u201ctake to everyone a lamb.\u201d Jesus deliberately ar- ranges to fulfill Zech 9:9. This is the only day He allows them to proclaim HimK i n g (Luke 19:38). The Pharisees assure our noticing the significance! Hallel Psalm: Ps 118:26. Jesus held them account- able to recognize this day. (Luke 19:41-44).

This was the 10th of Nisan, prior to the Passover on the 14th of Nisan, 32A.D.: (Luke 3:1: Tiberius ap- pointed, 14A.D.; 15th year = 29A.D.; 4th Passover, 32A.D. (April 6).See the chart on page 7.

Interval (Verse 26)

After the 69th week, before the 70th week:K a r a t, execution; death penalty (Lev 7:20; Ps 37:9; Prov 2:22). \u201cNot for Himself\u201d: rejection, substitution. \u201cFlood\u201d: diaspora.

An interval, or gap, clearly required by v. 26. Events described area f t e r the 69th and prior to the 70th week: Messiah \u201ccut off\u201d (karat = executed); Sanctu- ary destroyed, etc. 38 years are included with the destruction of Jerusalem in 70A.D. 1900 years have transpired so far.

Interval also implied:Dan 9:26; Isa 61:1,2 (re:

Lk 4:18-20); Rev 12:5,6. Also: Isa 54:7; Hos 3:4,5; Amos 9:10,11; (Acts 15:13-18); Micah 5:2,3; Zech 9:9,10; Luke 1:31,32; 21:24.

Interval defined:Luke 19:42 until Rom 11:25.
This interval is the period of the Church, an era
kept secret in OT: Mt 13:34,35; Eph 3:5,9.

\u201cIsrael\u201d isn e v e r used of the Church (73X). [Gal 6:16 misunderstood, by ignoring thek a i in the Greek which clearly distinguishes the two groups.] Her- esy: Romans 9-11. It seems that the Lord deals with Israel and the Church mutually exclusively. [The example of a Chess Clock...]
