Seventy Weeks Prophecy (Daniel 9:20-25)

-A Day = A Year Formular (Ezekiel 4:6)

-commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem

For this prophecy, knowing the appropriate date when a commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem was issued is very important. In the Bible, we find 4 different orders as follows below:

  • Ezera 1:1-14: During the first year of Cyrus dated to 537 B.C
  • Ezera 6:1-12: Second year of Darius dated to 520 B.C
  • Ezera 7:1-27: Seventh year of Artaxerxes dated to 457 B.C
  • Nehemiah 2:1-8: Twentieth year of Artaxerxes dated to 444 B.C

From above, the 70 weeks started in 457 B.C and ended in 34 AD. The last one week (7 days equivalent to 7 years started around 27AD) is when Jesus started his ministry at the age of 30 (Luke 3:23) and was baptized at about 31 years of age and was killed in the middle of the last 7 years at about 34 years old (Daniel 9:27)
