Daniels Numbers Examined

by Bob Moore

(Dan 12:10 ESV) Many shall purify themselves and make themselves
white and be refined, but the wicked shall act wickedly. And none of
the wicked shall understand, but those who are wise shall understand.

1 day = 1000 yr (A DayTo God, Psalms 90:4, 2 Peter 3:8)


360 day = 1 yr (traditionally accepted in the time of Daniel)
These two equations, are key to breaking the Daniel seal. If you cant consider the
possibility of these two simple truths, theres little point in reading any further,
but thanks for your attendance to this point.

Combine the two equations by multiplying to get:


1 day X 360 day = 1000 yr X 1 yr = 360 day2 = 1000 yr2
day2/yr2 = 1000/360
day/yr = square root of (10x10x10/6x6x10)
day/yr = 10/6 = 5/3
1 = (5/3)yr/day
is therefore a conversion key which can be used to convert prophetic day numbers
into years. Remember how 1 is defined in the equation above and apply it below:

1260 day X 1 = 1260 day X (5/3) yr/day = 2100 yr


So that may be what 1260 day (time, times and half a time) actually means.
Now lets check the other numbers.
Some conversions of Daniels numbers are summarized as follow:

Dan 8:14 (ESV) And he said to me, "For 2,300 evenings and mornings. Then the
sanctuary shall be restored to its rightful state." (See also 11-13)
Daniel 9:27 (NKJV)
27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of
the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate."
Dan 12:7 (ESV) And I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of
the stream; he raised his right hand and his left hand toward heaven and swore by
him who lives forever that it would be for a time, times, and half a time, and that
when the shattering of the power of the holy people comes to an end all these things
would be finished.
Dan 12:11 (ESV) And from the time that the regular burnt offering is taken away
and the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be 1,290 days.
Dan 12:12 (ESV) Blessed is he who waits and arrives at the 1,335 days.
We will allow the Bible to speak for why we use the 167 BC date of Antiochus Epiphanes desecration of the Temple as the base date for Daniels numbers. With 167 as the base
date, we must subtract 167 from each of the year spans calculated above. Then, since the
calendar loses 2 years mathematically (1 BC to 1 AD, which is a single tick of the clock) we
must add 2 to the number of years. After performing this minor adjustment, we can summarize results in the following table:

Can this middle of the week in Daniel 9:27 mean the middle of a Jubilee? (See Jubilees, Leviticus 25) We can construct a chart to help us know. The chart that follows is constructed by adding Jubilee and mid-Jubilee numbers prior and after the base mid-Jubilee
number, 167 BC. The chart is independent of any of the calculations from above. However,
Daniels numbers within the chart are highlighted in yellow..

It should be noted that the system of Jubilees was not uniformly practiced after 167
BC. The fact is that Jubilees were likely celebrated much as we celebrate April 15, the income
tax filing date. We can surmise it was never a popular celebration. No one today seems to lament its passing, tho many religionists choose to celebrate feasts and festivals obscure to
most of the general population.
In determining the starting time for applying the numbers determined from Daniel 8
and 12 the term middle of a seven or half a week deserves attention. Have a quick look
at these two verses.

Daniel 9:27 (NKJV)


27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of
the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate."
Dan 11:31 (ESV) Forces from him shall appear and profane the temple and forPage 5 of 10

tress, and shall take away the regular burnt offering. And they shall set up the abomination that makes desolate.
Notice how closely the dates derived from Daniels numbers follow the Jubilee pattern.
Please bear in mind that this chart was originally constructed without regard to placement of
the first or seventieth Jubilees, merely using 167 BC as a base number. Who would have
guessed that Daniels prophetic day numbers would fall exactly on the boundaries of Jubilees
and mid-Jubilees? Well perhaps mathematicians realizing the boundaries were set as well defined segments from the base number 167 would see this.
What if the half week Daniel is referring to is not the 50 year jubilee, but one of the 7
year Jubilees instead? This doesnt seem likely but in the worst case it will cause the dates to
be shifted by possibly as much as 21.5 years in advance or 28.5 years in delay. Its doubtful
the first Jubilee would have begun before Moses passing, or forty years after the Exodus.
Common sense eliminates the possibility that the 50 year Jubilee would have started earlier
than 1442 BC or the Day of the Lord would have already passed, uneventfully. This gives an
adjusted date range for the Day of the Lord between 2038 and 2089. Frankly, when we start
looking at these outer extremities to examine theoretical possibilities, the numbers on the
chart start to skew out of kilter with historical reality.

Daniels 70th Week


Dan_9:24 "Seventy weeks are decreed about your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to put an end to sin, and to atone for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal both vision and prophet, and to anoint a most holy
place.
Let me be blunt about it. We are five years into the 70th Week. The week we are
talking about here is the 70th Jubilee, for which the Jubilee Year is 2060. The 25th Chapter of
Leviticus explains the 50 year jubilee system. Seventy of these Jubilees total 3,500 years.
The 70th week mentioned in Daniel 9 is already calculated to be 2060 AD. We only have to
subtract 2060 from 3500 to find the year of the first jubilee. Turns out that year is 1440 but,
because of the way we enumerated years crossing the BC/AD boundary, we have to add 2
more years to cover the transition from AD back into BC. This places the beginning year of
the first Jubilee at 1442 BC. Under Breaking the Seal, we discuss the significance of this
date.
Its arguable that jubilee numbers might be applied to history prior to 1442 BC which
was the first Jubilee after the commandment to keep the jubilees was given to Israel. Not
too surprisingly, this Jubilee period includes the entire history of Israels existence, from a
very few years after the Exodus.
The facts you need to corroborate these statements are to be found in another article
Ive posted on Scribd. It is, A Simple Mans Bible Chronology. Also Dr. Steven C. Meyers has
written an excellent paper entitled, Biblical Archaeology: The Date of the Exodus According
to Ancient Writers. You will undoubtedly notice that the date of the Exodus is a controversial
Page 6 of 10

subject with little agreement among parties. After considerable study, please consider the
year 1442 BC as the plausible beginning of the first jubilee of the new nation of Israel. But
FYI, Josephus places a date of 1552 BC for the Exodus. Most likely the Jubilee wouldnt have
started until after the passing of Moses, 40 years after the Exodus
Now we have overwhelming confirmation for the year 2060 (or thereabout) as being
the end of this present age. First of all there is the abstraction derived from Biblical statements that equate 1 day to 1000 years in Gods perception. This abstraction merely required
us to make the assumption that both Biblical statements are true. The results leading to the
dates posted in Daniel and Jubilee Numbers swiftly followed.
It is amazing to see how cleanly the Jubilee divisions coincide with the dates calculated
using the conversion key. But the 70 Week Prophecy calls for significant events at 62 and 69
weeks. Isaac Newtons book, Observations Upon the Prophecies of Daniel and the Apocalypse
of St. John, points precisely to events at these times using the popular interpretation of the
lesser Jubilee, meaning 7 years. Also, he determined the 70th Week of Daniel to be at the
time of Jesus crucifixion which he places at 34 AD. This would have been 4747 of the current
Julian period which coincides with 34 AD. Newton places Ezras return to Jerusalem at 4257
of the Julian period which is exactly 490 years or 70 of the lesser Jubilees prior to the crucifixion. These facts are gathered from chapter 10 of his book.
Newton believed that Daniels number, 1260, was the number to apply to the end
time, which unfortunately varies somewhat from how Daniel describes that number. He also
assumed that 800 AD, the year of a nefarious collaboration between Emperor Charlemagne
and Pope Leo X, signified that the numbers 800 and 1260 should be added together to give
the year of the end time which is 2060, as we also calculated by other means on pages 1 and
2. The truly unfortunate side of this is that 1260 points to a time when the power of the holy
people would be broken, while 1335 points to the time of blessedness, or as Newton put it, a
time after which the return of messiah would be imminent.
The dates 1660 and 2010 are the dates that correspond to 62 and 69 weeks in the Jubilee chart. In 1660, Isaac Newton was 17 years old. It was a tumultuous time in the politics
of the English Crown. Charles I had been executed 11 years prior and his son Charles II was
being bounced into and out of exile, though 1660 was somewhat significant in that he was
restored to the throne in that year. However, there is nothing about any of this politics that
seems to remotely resemble events called for in the Bible at the 62nd week of the prophecy.
For those who might have interest in historical pursuit of the numbers, please bear in mind
that theres probably an uncertainty of at least plus or minus two years associated. Likely a
hybrid interpretation applies with 7 years per week applying to weeks 62 and 69. The 70th
Week has a dual meaning derived from the longer Jubilee of 50 years.
Lets look at the growing evidence in favor of the conversion key for Daniels numbers.
First of all, dates found by applying the conversion key line up with remarkable precision in
the Jubilee chart at Jubilee years and mid Jubilees. Then, theres the remarkable 2060 match
up of Isaac Newtons Day of the Lord and Daniels 1335 days.

Page 7 of 10

Perhaps even more remarkable is the confirmation between 2300 mornings and evenings and Daniels 3 coded numbers, 1260, 1290 and 1335. (See Daniel 12:7-12) The number 2300, given on a different occasion, (See Daniel 8:14) fits nicely into the Jubilee pattern
without being converted by the key. Is this not a clue that the 3 numbers converted are part
of Daniels effort to seal the book?

Breaking the Seal


Dan 12:4 But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time
of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase."
How might Daniel have gone about the task of sealing the book until the time of the
end? Keep in mind that Daniel was well recognized as the preeminent seer of the day, easily
confounding the fabled Aramean Magicians. There are two ways that he used his tremendous
intellect to perform the task with complete success. So fully successful he was that the book
remained sealed in plain view for around 2500 years until 2015. Today, most theologians still
argue that the seal is unbroken.
Most likely Daniel was given the actual dates in his prophecy rather than the encoded
numbers we find in his book, such as 1260 days, 1290 day, 1335 days, 2300 mornings and
evenings. The format in which he was given these dates quite possibly would have been in
jubilee measure. As an example 1260 days would correspond to 2100 years from the base
date (167 BC) which itself was at 25.5 Jubilees. Since 2100 years are equal 42 jubilees, the
sum of the two puts the 1260 day figure at 42 plus 25.5 Jubilees equal to 67.5 Jubilees.
Of course, the dates may also have been given in rabbinical years or anno mundi format in which case the base date would have been 3593 AM and then 2100 years would be
added togive 5693 AM as the date for 1260 days. Regardless of the format, we can see that
Daniel would have used the inverse of the conversion key in order to obtain 1260 days from
2100 years. He would simply multiply (3/5 day/year) X (2100 year) = 1260 day. Numbers so
derived are then the ones that he chose to publish thereby concealing the dates in plain view
for around 2500 years.
So first, he used Psalm 90:4 to set a secret key for deciphering the day numbers. Daniel routinely dealt with calendar figures based on 30 day months and years of 360 days. It
easily follows that to him 42 months is the same as 1260 days or 3 and 1/2 hears. Combining the precept of 1 day being the same as 1000 years to God, and Daniels commonly used
date reckonings results in the conversion key revealed on the very first page of this paper.
The second way in which Daniel sealed the book was by using the unpopular celebration of Jubilees to set the duration of his 70 Week Prophecy. Various religionists frequently
chide one another about the others negligence to celebrate certain feasts or festivals from
early Judaism. But no one laments the passing of the Jubilee system so what a perfect way
to set a seal. No one will dare dwell on the uncomfortable subject of the Jubilees. Ignoring
the tradition is very similar to whistling past the grave yard late at night to keep the spooks

Page 8 of 10

away. So Daniel simply used 70 Jubilees as his 70 weeks. It made theologians uncomfortable.
We can now check the two aspects of the seal to Daniels book for confirmation between the two methods. Does the time of the end calculated by the conversion key from
page 1 here agree with the Seventieth Week using a Jubilee as a week? Certainly the two
techniques are in agreement. Taking 70 weeks or 3500 years back from 2060 as calculated
applying the conversion key to 1335 days we wind up back at 1442 BC. Thats certainly a
reasonable answer for when the first jubilee is hypothesized to have begun.
Is it coincidental that 4 numbers given to Daniel from supernatural entities line up to
give the historical dates exactly prescribed according to divisions of the Jubilee Calendar? Is
it coincidental that the entire 70 Jubilees, so prescribed, fits exactly into the historical niche of
the Exodus to 2060 ad, the date derived from Daniels cleverly contrived conversion key? It
doesnt appear so.
Good folks, the seal is now broken. Perhaps you will ask why was it done by me?
Surely my Lord and Savior must be appalled at his shabby servant. In the roughly twenty
years that Ive been working on this project there have been many starts and stops in the
progress that led to this conclusion. It would seem the solution of this problem comes in no
way from personal brilliance on my part, but rather as a result of inspirations given me
throughout 20 years of bumbling and stumbling. It also would seem that more worthy servants could have been given this work. Why not someone like Billy or Franklin Graham? Why
not Dr. Chuck Missler or Tom Horn or Gary Stearman? Maybe Chris Putnam or why not even
the Pope?

Summary
We have an approximate date for the final jubilee year, the Seventieth Week of Daniel, also the 1335th day of Daniels prophecy which precedes the imminent return of Messiah.
Being in the 70th Week, we are in a very troublesome period of time. One might speculate
the great tribulation could begin 37 years from now in 2052, filling the final 7 years of the
70th Jubilee.
Now we have a pretty good perspective of the end time schedule but in reality,
scarcely does it matter. Jesus has said, Mar_13:20 And if the Lord had not cut short

the days, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect, whom he
chose, he shortened the days. So we have a statement that essentially the end time
schedule no longer matters. We wont be able to reach the scheduled end of the great
tribulation.
He also said, Luk_22:36 He said to them, "But now let the one who has a

moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his
cloak and buy one. By no means be deceived. Jesus surely was talking about our present
Jubilee as the time of trouble, extending to the time of blessedness. Is he telling us to become armed preppers? Is it possible that thousands, perhaps millions of people will be dePage 9 of 10

capitated or otherwise murdered in the United States of America and worldwide, simply because they are Christians? As of 2015, the Islamapologist President of the United States
seems unimpeachable and our out of control government is listening to everyone except the
people who put them in office. Prospects for the future only appear worse. Then surely it is
honorable to fight back and never, never renounce your faith and convert to Islam or any
other form of religion. Never renounce Jesus, never give up your guns, never stop fighting.
