Daniel's 70 Weeks REsources

Hand out for Daniel 9:24-27

Substituting “Seventy sevens” for “Seventy weeks” as the Hebrew word for “weeks” in Daniel 9:24 is “Shabua” which means “seven.”

Daniel 9:24 Seventy sevens (70 units x 7 years = 490 years) are determined for your people [the Jews] and for your city [Jerusalem], (1) to finish the transgression, (2) to make an end of sins, (3) to make reconciliation for iniquity, (4) to bring in everlasting righteousness, (5) to seal up vision and prophecy, and (6) to anoint the Most Holy.

Daniel 9:25 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 sevens (7 units x 7 years = 49 years) and sixty-two sevens (62 units x 7 years = 434 years) [so we now must add the 49 years to the 434 years and we get 483 years]; the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times.

Daniel 9:26 And after the sixty-two sevens (62 units x 7 years = 434 years – but remember, we have to add the 49 years to the 434 years as the 49 years in verse 25 are mentioned before the 434 years that will follow in verse 25 and by doing so, we have the 483 years) Messiah shall be cut off, but NOT for Himself; and the people “of the prince who is to come” shall destroy the city [of Jerusalem] and the sanctuary [this would be the 2 nd temple that would be destroyed and that took place in 70 A.D. under General Titus of the 10 th legion of the Roman Army]. The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war desolations are determined.


Daniel 9:27 Then he [the prince who is to come – NOT Messiah the Prince, but the second prince mentioned in verse 26 who is to come - Antichrist] shall confirm a covenant with many [Antichrist is going to confirm a covenant with Israel for seven years and help Israel rebuild the temple that was destroyed in 70 A.D. and reestablish their sacrifice and offerings] for one seven [the final 7-year period, which is the 70 th Seven]; but in the middle of the seven [3½ years into the final 7 years] he [the prince who is to come - Antichrist] shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering [Antichrist will break the seven year covenant].

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.” [At the end of the seventieth week, “the consummation” will occur; and Christ will return in power and cast the Antichrist and false prophet into the Lake of Fire and Satan will be bound for a 1,000 years and Jesus Christ the King of kings and the Lord of lords will rule and reign from Jerusalem in the Millennium Kingdom].
