    Daniel 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

    This decree was given to Nehemiah by Artaxerxes of Persia in 445 BC.
    Counting 483 biblical years [476 solar years] from the time king Artaxerxes of Persia issued a decree (445 BC.), comes out to A.D. 31.

    Jewish biblical year is 360 days.
    69 x 7 = 483. 483 x 360 = 173,880 days. 173,880 days devided by 365.2422 = 476.06766 solar years. So, from the decree to Nehemiah on Nisan 2, 445 BC, counting 476.06766 years comes to Nisan 10, 31 AD, which was palm Sunday. That is when Jesus came to Jerusalem as Messiah, the king. [So it would come to Nisan 10, 31 AD. Since Jesus was born in 2 BC, this would make Him 33 years old, which matches His age at His death, and the date of palm Sunday.]
    Zechariah 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

    Proof at this website Jesus was born in 2 BC.
    The Gregorian calendar we use is off by a couple of years.

    No need to go through a complex 360-not-really-a-year route if you take a better date for the decree to rebuild Jerusalem.

    457 B.C -- Ezra 7... Decree to rebuild Jerusalem.

    483 days (prophetic day-for-year days in Dan 9)... so that is 483 solar years -- and it brings us to 27 AD "the annointing" the Baptism of the "annointed one" Messiah -- of Dan 9.

    One thing is certain Dan 9 is recognized by almost all Bible scholars as THE greatest Messianic timeline prophecy in all of scripture.

    It tells us of the 483 year count down to the annointing -- baptism-- of Christ.
    It speaks of Christ being crucified about 3.5 years into his Ministry (in the midst of the week - cut off).
    It tells us that Christ's sacrifice puts an end to sacrifice and offering JUST as Heb 10 says it does.

    It tells us that Christ comes to strengthen - and ratify the Covenant - the New Covenant as Christ said.. "THIS IS the new Covenant in my blood"

    1. Luke 22:20
      And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten, saying, "This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood.
    2. 1 Corinthians 11:25
      In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me."

    Oops, that would make Him 32 years old.

    time in years = yearAD + yearBC -1
    31AD + 2BC -1 = 32 years old
    There is no year zero:
    1 Jan 0001AD is the day after 31 Dec 001BC

    Genesis 17:12 (Geneva Bible, 1599 Edition):
    And euery man childe of eight dayes olde among you,
    shalbe circumcised
    in your generations,
    aswell he that is borne in thine house,
    as he that is bought with money
    of any stranger, which is not of thy seede.

    This was considered the arrival of a male child:
    the eighth day. Jesus was circumcised on
    the eighth day:

    Luke 2:21 (Geneva Bible, 1599 Edition):
    And when the eight daies were accomplished,
    that they shoulde circumcise the childe,
    his name was then called Iesus
    ,
    which was named of the Angell,
    before he was conceiued in the wombe.

    Recall BC = Before Chirst
    AD = Latin: Annto Domino (English

    IMHO Jesus was born 25 Dec 0001BC and
    became a Jewish person 01 Jan 0001AD:
    the first day of Era named for Jesus, the Christ!

    day 1* - 25 Dec 0001BC
    day 2 - 26 Dec 0001BC
    day 3 - 27 Dec 0001BC
    day 4 - 28 Dec 0001BC
    day 5 - 29 Dec 0001BC
    day 6 - 30 Dec 0001BC
    day 7 - 31 Dec 0001BC
    day 8 - 01 Jan 0001AD

    (The Jews probably started counting
    days & years at '1' /instead of '0' like
    our computer people start, sometimes)

    more follows ...

    P.S. some people use CE instead of AD
    - 'CE' means 'Common Era' /in other words,
    the era of Messiah Jesus/
    they also use BCE /before the Common Era/

    Finis Jennings Dake, in Dake's annotated reference bible has that date for the decree, by Artaxerxes to Nehemiah, at 452 BC, in Jewish years. 483 Jewish years later is 31 AD. [In Solar years it is 445 BC. That is why 483 must be changed to solar years before the calculation can be done.]

    The decree in the book of Ezra, is only to rebuild the house of the Lord, which is the temple. The decree given to Nehemiah was to rebuild the city, Jerusalem.
    Dan. 9:25 is about rebuilding Jerusalem, the whole city.

    There is also a problem with the date you arrived at, 27 AD. The Gregorian calendar that we use is not correct; it is a few years off. So Jesus was not really born in what we call the year 0. He was either born in 4 BC or 2 BC. The best proof I have found is that He was born in 2 BC. Also, the bible, as it is written uses the arabic numbering system, and there is a year Zero. So, the calculations you have are not correct. Counting from 457BC going 483 years you arrive at 26 AD if there is a year zero. Jesus would have been 28 years old, in 26 AD; that does not match the scriptures that He began His ministry at the age of 30.
    The Arabic numbering system was used in Europe from about 1000 AD onward. So the King James bible would have a quantity for the year or space for the year 0.

    No, that would make him 33 years old. The arabic numbering system (which has a quantity for 0), was used in Europe from about 1000 AD onward. The translators of the King James bible would have used the Arabic numbering system and they would have had a year 0, built into their bible translation.
    Since the arabic numbering system was used for 600 years in Europe, at the time of the translation, they would not have used the old Roman system of numbers [which does not have a year 0] in their bible.

    Jesus was definitely not born on Dec. 25. That date comes from the Summer solstice festival of the ancient pagan Roman religion, and was adopted by Contantine and his followers as the date for the birth of Jesus, because it was already being celebrated by the pagan Romans.
    [The pagan Roman religion was a form of sun worship, or baal worship, which was used in Babylon at the time of the tower of Babel. When they noticed the days getting longer, around Dec. 25, they declared it the birth of the sun, and hung little balls on the trees as symbols of the sun, and gave gifts to one another to celebrate the birth of their false sun god baal. That is why balls are hung from trees until this day. Constantine mixed the pagan Roman religion with Christianity to form the Roman catholic church. See online book, THE TWO BABYLONS, by Alexander Hislop.--find it on metacrawler search engine.]
    Serious bible scholars around the world have known for centuries that Jesus was not really born on Dec. 25. That is Roman catholic tradition, adopted from the old pagan Roman religion of ancient Rome, trying to match the birth of Jesus to the Summer solstice festival.
    The best estimate or proof of His birth date that I have seen is September 29, 2 BC.
    [Note: It is cold in December in Israel. The shepherds would have had the sheep inside with them and not out in the cold fields. That does not match what the scriptures said about the Shepherds at the time of the birth of Christ.]
    In THE DEVELOPEMENT OF THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION, by Cardinal Newman, he states that the:
    temples, votive offerings, holy water, Holidays, oil lamps, precessions and seasons of devotion, along with the clothes of the priests nuns and monks are all of pagan origin. It is on page 359.

    You see the word, Holidays. That includes using the Summer solstice festival, Dec. 25, and falsely calling it the birthday of Jesus. It is not really His birthday.

    Here is one of my earlier writings.
    I wrote it as part of my examples
    of misunderstandings of the KJVs
    /King James Jersions/ which cause
    doctrinal differences.

    -------------------------------
    Dan 9:25-27 (KJV1611 Edition):
    Know therefore and vnderstand,
    that from the going foorth of the commandement
    to restore and to build Ierusalem,
    vnto the Messiah the Prince,
    shall be seuen weekes;
    and threescore and two weekes,
    the street shall be built againe, and the wall,
    euen in troublous times.
    26 And after threescore and two weekes,
    shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himselfe,
    and the people of the Prince that shall come,
    shall destroy the citie, and the Sanctuarie,

    and the ende thereof shall be with a flood,
    and vnto the ende of the warre
    desolations are determined.
    27 And hee shall confirme the couenant with many
    for one weeke: and in the midst of the weeke
    he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation
    to cease, and for the ouerspreading of abominations
    hee shall make it desolate,

    Daniel 9:25-27 (KJV1769 Edition)
    (Things about Messiah the prince)
    25 Know therefore and understand, that from
    the going forth of the commandment to restore
    and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince
    26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off,
    but not for himself: shall be seven weeks,
    and threescore and two weeks:
    the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

    (Things about a prince who shall destroy Jerusalem
    and the temple therein):
    and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and
    the sanctuary
    ; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the
    end of the war desolations are determined.
    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.
    euen vntill the consummation,
    & that determined, shalbe powred vpon the desolate.

    The capital 'P' in the 'Messiah the Prince'
    denotes a title: 'Messiah the Prince'.

    In the KJV1611 Edition the capital 'P' in
    the 'Prince' who shall come & the people who
    shall destroy Jerusalem & the Temple therein --
    that 'Prince' is the same as Messiah the Prince.
    This leads to the post-tribulation rapture
    only and a-millinnial (The Millennial Messanic
    Kingdom is spiritual not physical OR
    the Church is the Millennial Messanic Kingdom)
    viewpoints of eschatology.

    In the KJV1769 the non-capital 'p' in
    the 'prince' who shall come & the people who
    shall destroy Jerusalem & the Temple therein --
    that 'prince' is NOT Messiah the Prince.
    This leads to the pretribualation rapture
    and pre-millinnial Second Coming of Christ
    viewpoint of eschatology.

    One gets variant doctrine over
    the capital or non-capital of the 'Prince'
    or 'prince' in Dan 9:26.

    (Eschatology is very fragile - who variations
    in eschatolgy vary according to what
    a few key 'and's (or the ampersand '&' in
    Revelation 20:4) mean.)

    But the Christ (Messiah), who is Jesus,
    is not fragile at all -- He will someday
    destroy the last enemy: death --
    of this we can be sure. The rest of
    Eschatology is speculation.
    -------------------------------------------------

    next, the 'he's in verse 27 -- do they refer to
    Messiah or the prince who shall come & destroy
    the Temple in Jerusalem?

    On Sunday, 9 Dec 2007, in heavenly Central Oklahoma, it
    is HOME DAY instead of CHURCH DAY. The weather has
    us iced in (NOT snow - snow is nice, this is ICE!)

    Israel between the Med and the Salt Sea is
    comfortable /by comparision to Oklahoma/.
    But Israel, like Oklashoma,
    the average doesn't tell the story: the average
    low is the sum of all the monthly lows.

    The average low in December in the part of Israel
    called the west bank -- the average low is under 55.
    But 3/4ths of the nights in December, the low
    is about 60 -- they will be out in their fields
    eating the last of the green grass (yes, grass grows
    until it freezes). If the low is only 60 /dry/, the
    If the low is 35 /cold rain/ the sheep will be /if
    possible/ put under shelter.

    I note that GOD gave every sheep a WOOL COAT.
    They are sheered in the late spring /May/.

    The coat of a sheep is very thick in December. In Israel
    the coldest month is Feburary. Jan & March
    are similar temperature. Dec & April are similar
    temperature.

    I've tracked the temperature Christmas Eve
    in Jerusalem (Jesus was born 8 miles south in
    Betheleham, the City of David). I've
    tracked the temerature since soon after I
    got on Bulletin Boards in June 1984. 5 of 7
    years the low temp Christmas Eve is 55 or
    higher. only 2 in 7 Christmas Eves under 55.

    It is a matter of opinion, so debatable, that
    there is no reason to discard the Christmas (25 Dec)
    date for the Birth of Jesus due to weather.

    It is 66ºF in Bethlehem at the time
    of this change noted below. There it
    is late afternoon.

    I agree that if you use Nehemiah's date instead of the one in Ezra - you have to come up with something creative for "years" like "year is not really a solar year to get things to work out. That is why Ezra is a better date. Then years are
    "real years".

    As for the option of switching to Jewish years -- The Jews had an intercalary 13th month inserted every 3 years so that every 3 years the entire sytem "synced up" and 3 Jewish years equaled 3 "real years". Your solution does not allow for that either.

    Nehemiah's decree does not work because when it takes effect - they are merely 40 days from completing their project even after the gates and walls had been damaged by enemies.

    That means that the entire project was directed and approved in Ezra's decree.

    Nehemiah's decree was to finish rebuilding the city -- a task that had already been approved and was 40 days from completion.

    There is no year zero in our Calendar and there is no year at all (as in 3BC or 27 AD) given in scripture.

    Using the Gregorian Calendar would have Christ born in 4 BC, no year zero, with "annointing" -- baptism in 27 AD. Which ends the 69th week - starting the 70th week.

    Then in the midst of that week (midst of the last 7 years giving Christ about a 3.5 year ministry) the Messiah is cut off.

    And as we see in Heb 10 -- He causes sacrifices and offerings to come to an end from God's POV by His "once for all" substitutionary atoning sacrifice.

    No wonder Daniel 9 is consdered the greatest Messianic timeline prophecy in all of scripture.

    At the end of that 70th week - Stephen is stoned and the Gospel goes in full force to the gentiles.

    in Christ,

    Bob

    That, my Brother is a FACT and not even debatable.
    Strange, though, how some in the spirit of debate
    want to argue it.

    The date of birth of Jesus (AKA: Imanuel /God with us/)
    is debatable.
    The fulfillment of the Daniel 9 prophecy is debatable.
    Year zero isn't debatable. -- they ain't one.

    Here again is the computation of # of years
    from BC to AD:

    year AD + yearBC - 1 = # of years

    (technically speaking if you consider the yearBC
    to be a negative quantity it is:)

    year AD - yearBC - 1 = # of years

    since - times - is +, the other formula works.

    The -1 comes from the fact (not opinion) that
    there is no year zero.

    Here is a very interesting explanation.
    Those who use year ) might be leaning Buddist ;)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_zero


    BTW, the Winter Solstice is in December
    NOT the Summer solstice.

    Whether on not the prince that shall come has a captital P or not does not change doctrine. It says that the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city. It is the Romans under general Titus that destroyed the city of Jerusalem in 70 AD. This shows that the prince that shall come shall be a Roman. Jesus was Jewish and not a Roman. So the prince that shall come does not apply to Him. It is about the Antichrist. Also it just got finished saying that Messiah would be cut off (or killed) so the next mention of prince is another prince, not Jesus. Judea was under a roman procurator from AD 7 onward. Herod's jurisdiction was Galilee. So Jesus was not a Roman by birth like Paul was.

    That is true and solves the case for vs 26.

    But in vs 27 "he" in that case is the Messiah who confirms the covenant "This cup is the new covenant in my blood" and puts and end to sacrifices and offerings Heb 10 says this was done by his once-for-all sacrifice for sins.

    in Christ,

    The 70th week has not started yet. Preterism is not a correct interpretation of the bible. Forget about preterism.
    I don't want to argue about this. Too time consuming and not enough people accessing this forum for it to be worthwhile.
    70th week starts when Antichrist signs a 7 year agreement with Israel.
    Desolations are determined. Land was desolate until end of war world 2 when Jews came back in and nation of Israel was reformed, 1948. Now the 70th week can happen. Dan 9:24, 70 weeks are on Israel as a people and Jerusalem. The 70th week could not happen until Israel was a nation again. Land was desolate, not a nation of Israel, from 70AD till 1948.

    You should agree with me when you agree with me
    like you do here. "Amen Brother Ed" is good :)
    Yes, capital or not capital makes a difference in
    who think the 70th week of Daniel was fulfilled
    immediately after the 69th week (they believe in no
    gap whereas I believe in a gap almost 2,000 years long
    so far) by Christ. I.E. to them Christ committed the
    abomination that makes desolate. I just can't see
    the perfect Lamb of God committing an abomination
    ('abomination' means God really gets upset about it -
    'abomination' is stuff God doesn't like). But the milage
    of others may vary.

    Amen, Brother Antiaging -- Preach it! :thumbs:

    Amen, Brother Antiaging -- Preach it! :thumbs:

    BTW, I think perchance Bro. BobRyan thinks hie
    is a Post-trib only Rapturist, and an a-mill 2ed Adventest.
    That is different from preterist. Anyway, I've been discussing
    with him for years now. Feel free to discuss the parts you
    like to discuss and leave the rest to me. I'm called
    to this time consuming task -- it is my current vocation.

    Amen, Brother Antiaging -- Preach it! :thumbs:

    You are so RIGHT ON!

    The quotes here come from approximately here:

    http://www.baptistboard.com/showthread.php?p=1143853#post1143853

    The passage Dan. 9:26-27 does speak of Messiah. It speaks
    not of anything else you say. The two characters in Dan 9:26-27
    are 'Messiah the Princ' (Jesus) and 'The Prince who Shall Come'
    (Antichrist in other passages). Unfortunately, the error of your
    logical assumption here equates Messiah with Anti-Messiah;
    Jesus the Good (Christ) with pure evil (AntiChrist)

    This is correct about the words. But the meaning is there:
    Daniel 9:24-27 does speak of
    'one seven' or 'one week' which is seven years.
    I logically assume that the Tribulation Period is
    the Seven Year long (70th week of Daniel) and
    don't end up calling evil good in error here in Daniel 9:26-27.

    There are 7 passages in Daniel & Revelation that that
    speak of the two halfs of the 70th week of Daniel.

    Even Messiah Jesus spake of what it says in Daniel 9:26-27.
    Here is what Messiah Jesus said answering the Disciples
    Question " ... and what shall be the signe of thy coming? ... "
    (Matthew 24:3b, KJV1611 Edition)

    Matthew 24:15-21 (KJV1611 Edition):
    When yee therefore shall see the abomination of desolation,
    spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, stand in the holy place,

    (who so readeth, let him vnderstand.)
    16 Then let them which be in Iudea, flee into the mountaines.
    17 Let him which is on the house top,
    not come downe, to take any thing out of his house:
    18 Neither let him which is in the field,
    returne backe to take his clothes.
    19 And wòe vnto them that are with child,
    and to them that giue sucke in those dayes.
    20 But pray yee that your flight bee not
    in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day:
    21 For
    then shall be great tribulation,
    such as was not since the beginning
    of the world to this time, no, nor euer shall be.


    Note Jesus does not say:

    // When yee therefore shall see the abomination of desolation,
    spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, STOOD UP BY ME
    in the holy place, ... //

    I think if Jesus (the Messiah) was going to commit the
    abomination of desolation (AoD) that He would have
    told us. Both 'adomination' and 'desolation' have
    negative connotations of evil not postitive connotations
    of good. I just can't see Messiah Jesus who is the very
    essence of God committing an abomination :(

    Sorry 'Prince Messiah' and 'the Prince who will come'
    who does the Abomination shall be two different people.
    Making this wrong logical assumption means that nearly all
    the logic following is also wrong (though some of could
    accidentally be correct).

    I know that some people will make bad assumptions like
    this then deny them blaming God by using:

    //That why, I stick with Early Church fathers' teachings,
    and also, follow what the Bible saying than
    what today's men's teaching Col. 2:8).//

    Col 2:7-8 (KJV1611 Edition):
    Rooted and built vp in him, and stablished in the faith,
    as yee haue bene taught, abounding therein with thankesgiuing.
    8 Beware lest any man spoile you through
    Philosophie and vaine deceit, after the tradition
    of men
    , after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ:

    I know you were taught the truth by your early mentors:
    pretribulation rapture2 -- why didn't you stay
    faithful?
    The error logical assumption (false axiom) that Jesus
    commits the AoD (abomination of Desolation) is one
    of the vain deceit philosophies that lead to the error
    of 'post-trib resurrection2 only' and a-mill.

    That is impossible. The 490 year timeline starts in 456 BC

    (or even 423 if we use your model) and so the 490 year timeline terminates in the first century AD by every measure.

    In fact all numeric timeline prophecies work that way without exception.

    If you slice 'em up and insert gaps of 1000's of years of defined lengths of time - they completely fail as numeric timelines.

    ALL numeric timelines are contiguous "by definition" without exception.

    Take the 70 years timeline that starts Dan 9 -- if you slice it up and insert 1000's of years of undefined lengths of time into it -- it is worthless as a timeline.

    This is always the case with all numeric timelines -- no exception possible.

    Now see - we agree on something.

    It is not a reference to 1948 -- it is a reference to God's plan - to turn to the Gentiles and the probation of Israel ended at the stoning of Stephen.

    To think that Israel has returned to true worship of the one true God - accepting the Messiah and entering once again into God's plan for them in 1948 is to miss a lot of history regarding Israel in the past 60 years.

    in Christ,

    Bob

    Which part of "I think perchance" you having problems with?
    You get to say what you is, not me.

    As far as I can tell one can insert additional time
    in any timed prophecy IF THE BIBLE DOES.

    Daniel 9 clearly talks about the 70 weeks in pieces:

    1. 6 week chunk
    2. 63 week chunk
    3. 1 week chunk, in two 3½-year 1/2 chunks
    3a. first half of the 70th week
    3b. second half of the 70th week

    These breaks are mentioned in the Scripture, but
    you gotta end your chant AGAINST the scriputre to
    see them.

    I redid the calculation switching over to a no zero year in the Gregorian calendar:

    Daniel 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

    The timing of the 70 weeks prophecy can be determined to about palm Sunday AD 33, when Jesus came to Jerusalem riding on a donkey, as Messiah the King, the son of David, from the prophecy in Zechariah 9:9.
    Jewish biblical year is 360 days.
    69 x 7 = 483. 483 x 360 = 173,880 days. 173,880 days devided by 365.2422 = 476.06766 solar years. So, from the decree to Nehemiah on Nisan 2, 445 BC, counting 476.06766 years comes to Nisan 10, 31 AD, which was palm Sunday. [Using a zero date in the timeline.] That is when Jesus came to Jerusalem as Messiah, the king. [So it would come to Nisan 10, 31 AD. Since Jesus was born in 2 BC, this would make Him 33 years old, which matches His age at His death, and the date of palm Sunday.]
    There are proofs at that website that Jesus was born in 2 BC.
    http://144000.net/birth.htm

    The above calculation is done assuming a 0 year in the calendar. But the Gregorian calendar has no zero year.
    But there is no zero year in the calendar. Dec.31, 1BC, is one day before Jan.1, 1AD. So compressing the time lines for BC and AD to no zero year timeline, you need to add two years to the amount of time that went by, if there was no zero year. So 31 AD becomes 33AD. That would work if Jesus was born in the year 2 BC, and would make Him 2 years old in 2 AD. That would make Him 33 years old at His death. The calendar without the zero year makes him born in 2BC, and His death would be in 33 AD when He was 33 years old.
    - --------------
    4 3 2 1 0 1 2 3 4
    4 3 2 1 2 3 4 5 6
    The timeline compresses by two if you take out the zero year. That pushes the date of Jesus’ death and palm Sunday from AD 31 up to AD 33. [You can see from the illustration that on the bottom timeline the date would now be 6, for the same span of time. On the top time line it ended in 4. If the time span of dashes was 33 years long, and it started at 2 BC, it would go up to 33 on the bottom time line, where there is no zero year.]

    Zechariah 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

    wrong.

    Here is right:

    4B 3B 2B 1B -0- 1A 2A 3A 4A
    4B 3B 2B 1B 1A 2A 3A 4A 5A


    Year 1BC is before year AD1
    (apparently AD is put before the year, BC after?)

    year 1Bc IS NOT = ad1, as you appear to suggest.
