How Do You Interpret Daniel's 70 Weeks?

Posted by Bible Knowledge Online Revelation Theology and Bible Study on May 27, 2011 at 9:57 PM

I have studied many views.  I definitely lean toward the timing of the cross and the Day of Pentecost.  Video may be coming on this in the future.

The days line up very close and seems to be the correct answer in understanding the prophet Daniel. Of course many are in disagreement concerning this. I was a futurist for about 10 years and know all about the final week or seven year tribulation that is popular today. I have believed something totally different for about 14 years or so now. That not only includes a totally different perspective of the book of Revelation but also of the seventy weeks of Daniel.
Hello and thank you for this post. I agree. The cross as the "abomination that maketh desolate" seems to fit. The cross being the abomination that made Jerusalem desolate. Also Jesus states of the abomination of desolation "standing where it ought not". This seems to reference the cross. I have also studied the days quoted of by Daniel and have come to the same conclusion concerning the cross and Pentecost.

Also:
And from the time [that] the daily [sacrifice] shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, [there shall be] a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

12 Blessed [is] he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. But go thou thy way till the end [be]: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.
1335 - 1290 is 45 days. So they were waiting and praying and all together. Later they were blessed when the Holy Spirit was poured out with power in fulfillment of Joel.

Oh and that ''lost'' week of Danielle which has not yet occured? What? What is wrong with people. Between 1/4 and 1/3 of each of the four gospels is dedicated to the life of Christ after he enters Jerusalem and prior to His resurrection.
That's a week. That's 7 days. Lost? Still has to happen? What? Only if Christ didn't get the victory and still has to come(which some demoniac are actually trying to say)....
Anyway mid-week my Saviour did break a covenant or ...however it's explained...with the Jews when he established his new covenant/testament as explained in Hebrews.
They say this is something that the ''anti-Christ'' will do?
It's wrong. They're wrong.
I'm not sure about the 62 remaining weeks. I'm thinking maybe the days prior to Cornelius(is that his name)...when the Gentiles are grafted in?\
I'm still trying to research that.

OMG. Thank God. I thought I would go mad if I didn't find a Bible scholar who would understand this.
Of course. I've been practically tossed out of churches with Bible in hand as I try to read...
In Matt....he says ''when you see the abomination...''...right? But then it says ''let the reader understand''...
so...
between the time that Jesus forewarned of the event and the time that the bible is written and the reader can ''understand'' ...the event must have occured.
Right?
It's just so clear. In the ''place where it should not be''...that's the temple of our God which is the body of My Saviour.
Then 7 times 7 is 49. OK....49 days later they're waiting in the upper room and some time..hours or days...thereafter..voila...the Holy Spirit.
Pastors are practically tossing me out the door when I try to tell them that.
Thank God for this site.
My husband agrees. He didn't go to Bible College. What's with these Bible colleges? What in the world are they teaching them?
