Most Bible scholars agree that from the commandment of Artaxerxes in 457 BC to rebuild Jerusalem and the Temple (Ezr 7:11 - 28), until the baptism of our Lord is 69 weeks or 483 years. Which leaves one prophetic week or 7 years, here's where the debates and false doctrines abound. With a little margin for error on either side you have your 70 weeks or 7×70=490 years. 457 BC to 34 AD is 490 Years. I believe the 70 weeks ended with the stoning (and biting) of Stephen in approx 34AD. Half way through the 70th week the Lord was crucified for us, and after His Resurrection and ascendance to Heaven His disciples continued to preach the Gospel to the Children of Israel until the murder of Stephen (Act 7:54-60). Thenceforth, Peter received from the Lord to preach to the gentiles (Act 10:34-48), and Saul converted on the road to Damascus (Act 9:3-9) and also preached to the Gentiles. 40 years later, like the time in the desert, the destruction and desolation of the Temple and Jerusalem began. It was indeed the end of physical Israel. The Israel of God from then on was comprised of believers, whether they be natural, or grafted in roots into the spiritual olive tree representing Israel (Rom 11).
Dan 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week ...” He, is Jesus Christ, many believe the he is “antichrist” but that is demonstrably false. Christ confirms the New Covenant or Testament, with His blood:
Mat 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Dan 9:27 … and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease …
His death on the cross officially caused the end to animal sacrificial atonement of sin, although God had told the children of Israel long before He was not pleased with their animal sacrifices.
1Sa 15:22 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
Isa 1:11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
Hos 6:6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
Mat 9:13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Dan 9:27 … and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
For the evil done by the Children of Israel, culminating in the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, the wrath of God falls upon that final generation of the physical seed of Abraham:
Mat 23:29-38 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
Jesus spoke of it even more specifically in other verses:
Luk 21:20-22 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
As you study the 70th Week, and what is taught today, you'll see the 70th week delusion ties in to all the other false doctrines, and has a common thread, to diminish the work of Jesus Christ on the cross, and to establish that God still owes something to the physical descendents of Abraham. For further detail on this click here.
The physical descendents of Abraham and their “Christian” Zionist supporters say they have a “Special relationship”, or there's two separate Covenants, one for them, one for everybody else. They say the 70th week was suspended until the end time, and then there is either a pre, mid or post return of Jesus during the final 7 years of tribulation. The common theme is again God owes them still more, regardless of their lack of faith and disobedience, of course it's false doctrines. Invented, perverted Judiazation of the Bible. It all ties together, if they accepted the truth of Daniel 9 they would have to admit that the Messiah, Jesus Christ already came, and they rejected Him and had Him put to death like the prophets before Him.
It's way past time to get real here, face the Biblical truth. Not believing on Jesus and disobedience of His Commandments will get you a one way ticket to the Lake of Fire, not an all expense paid homeland. I have said this before and say it again now: What part of Jesus Christ is the Seed of Abraham (Gal 3:16) don't you understand?
