The 70 Weeks Of Daniel 9 Fulfillment Timeline

This 70th week of Daniel 9 Decoded Bible study gives the timeline of the 70 weeks of Daniel 9.

The format of the seventy weeks of Daniel 9 prophecy is very straightforward.

The prophecy represents ten 49-year Jubilee cycles:

Seven weeks (49 years, one Jubilee cycle) to rebuild the city of Jerusalem.

Then sixty-two weeks (434 years), during which there were four-hundred years of silence from the prophets until Messiah’s arrival.

And then the last week (7 years), during which Messiah carried out His ministry and died for our sins, as the Gospel was proclaimed to the Jews first.

Daniel 9:25 says that Messiah the Prince appears after 69 weeks are fulfilled.

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.

Some people proclaim that Messiah’s appearance points to the passion week when Messiah the Spotless Lamb rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, was inspected by the Jewish leaders, died for our sins and rose again. By that, they dismiss that the 70th week of Daniel 9 has been fulfilled.

The title of Messias is only used in these two verses in the New Testament, which validates that the prophecy is pointing to the beginning of His ministry.

He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. John 1:41

The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. John 4:25

The Greek word for Messias is based on the Hebrew word mashiyach, which is used in Daniel 9:25.

This direct connection acts as a marker, validating that the 70 weeks of Daniel 9 prophecy is pointing to the start of His ministry, not just to the week of His death.

This invalidates the claim that the 70th week of Daniel 9 has not been fulfilled yet.

Here’s a summary of the explanations given in the three timeline videos, which validate that Messiah’s ministry started in 27 AD, at the beginning of the 70th week of Daniel 9.

Passages in 1 Esdras validate the starting command from Artaxerxes in 457 BC, which projects that the 70th week of Daniel 9 took place from 27-34 AD.

The 49 years of the 7 weeks that start the prophecy point to a year of Jubilee, which is validated with Scripture. It marked the Jews being empowered to rebuild their city.

John the Baptist, who preceded Messiah by six months, started his ministry in spring of 27 AD, in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar.

Messiah started His ministry at age 30 in 27 AD, which aligns with Him being born in 4 BC before Herod died in 3 BC.

The year of Messiah’s baptism lines up with fall of 27 AD, when He was thirty years old.

Another proof of the starting year of Messiah’s ministry in 27 AD by looking at the timing of the temple being rebuilt by Herod.

Messiah’s parable of the fig tree in Luke 13:6-9 seems to allude to His three years of coming to Jerusalem for Passover. He cleansed the temple in his ministry’s first and last years and found no good fruit in the Jewish leaders.

Messiah’s death for our sins, which ended the need for temple animal sacrifices, took place in the middle of the 70th week, in 31 AD.

The Gospel was proclaimed to the Jews during the latter half of the seven years, and many Jews believed in Him.

The book of Acts documents the dramatic events which marked the Jewish leaders’ continued rejection of Messiah when they stoned Stephen to death in 34 AD. Then the narrative of Acts changes abruptly, as the Gospel is also proclaimed to the Gentiles.

We can see the fulfillment of all 70 weeks of Daniel 9 on the timeline, as we can see how the Gospel was proclaimed to the Jews first during seven years of the 70th week.

And we see that after the ten 49-year Jubilee cycles of the 490-year prophecy, a year of Jubilee took place, which marked the release of the Gentiles from ignorance as the Gospel was also proclaimed to them.

Since then, Messiah’s kingdom has been built with believers from the House of Israel and the House of Judah, and Gentiles, who are the true Israelites of the Commonwealth of Israel. The physical city of Jerusalem was a type that now points to the remnant of believers called Holy Jerusalem in Revelation.

Here’s The 70th Week Of Daniel 9 Timeline Part Two.

Here’s The 70th Week Of Daniel 9 Timeline Part Three.

The 70th week of Daniel 9 was fulfilled after the 69th week.

What took place in the 70th week of Daniel 9 was the pinnacle of human history, for in the middle of the seven years, Messiah died for our sins and rose again.

It’s not about the end times or the antichrist. That concept is a deception from the enemy to deceive the end-times saints, and sadly, it’s worked very well.
