Daily Bible Nugget #378, Daniel 9:24-27

The Nugget:

Dan 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

Dan 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.

Dan 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: 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.

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.

My Comment:

This is one of the most amazing prophecies in the Bible. Very many interpreters get it wrong. It helps to do your homework first doing Real Bible Study before you venture to explain this text.

I have studied this passage in detail over many years. I have bought and read carefully books on Bible prophecy that do not support my understanding of this text. It is always good practice to carefully study what the other side is saying about a text as controversial as this passage is before you come to your own conclusions. I have done that most carefully, and have the print library in my home to prove it.

I placed careful notes in my original major Bible reference work, The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge, on these verses. Let me share these notes and extensive cross references with you. I will let you draw your own conclusions. I would call your attention to a very interesting feature of Bible prophecy: there are a number of Bible prophecies contained in passages of the Old Testament which contain unannounced prophetic time gaps between adjacent statements in the prophecy. This passage, Daniel 9:24, 25, 26, 27 is one of those passages. Some have posted most welcome comments here in the past arguing there are no such things as these supposed prophetic time gaps between adjacent statements of Bible prophecy. I have argued in return that there most certainly are such gaps. I have placed the whole list of such prophetic gaps I have found or learned about at Isaiah 61:2, a verse which Jesus read to the synagogue as recorded at Luke 4:18, 19. Notice that Jesus stopped His reading of Isaiah 61:2 in the middle of the verse: He did not read the following clause, “and the day of vengeance of our God,” because the time for fulfilling that part of the verse had not arrived–and it is still future to our own time now. If that is not a prophetic time gap, I don’t know what is!

Here are my cross references and study notes for Daniel 9:24-27,

Dan 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.  

Daniel 9:24. Seventy weeks. Note: That is, seventy weeks of years, or 490 years, which reckoned from the seventh year of Artaxerxes, coinciding with the 4256th year of the Julian period, and in the month Nisan, in which Ezra was commissioned to restore the Jewish state and polity (Ezr 7:9-26), will bring us to the month Nisan of the 4746th year of the same period, or A.D. 33, the very month and year in which our Lord suffered, and completed the work of our salvation. Sir Robert Anderson has since given a detailed calculation regarding the seventy weeks, a period which begins March 14, B.C. 445, and for the sixty-ninth week, ends Sunday, April 6, A.D. 32, the day of the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem (Lk 19:28-40) in fulfillment of Zc 9:9 (Anderson, The Coming Prince, pp. vi., 128). As to the seventieth week, it is yet future. “A careful study of the Angel’s words (Da 9:24) will show that not so much as one of them has been thus accomplished” (Anderson, p. 79). Le 25:8. Nu 14:34. Ezk 4:6. +*Ac 1:6, 7. +*Ro 11:25. are determined. or, cut off: i.e. divided off from all other years.

  1. Daniel 9:26.  And after. Note carefully that two events are stated to take place after the sixty-nine weeks have concluded: (1) the death of Messiah; (2) the destruction of Jerusalem. These cannot be understood to take place during the Seventieth Week, for the Crucifixion would cut the time too short, and the destruction of Jerusalem would stretch the time too long to be accommodated within the seven-year time frame of the Seventieth Week were it to be considered contiguous with the Sixty-ninth Week. This absolutely proves, therefore, that there is a gap of unannounced duration between the Sixty-ninth and the Seventieth Week specifically stated right here in Scripture. Further proof is that Jesus himself placed events of Daniel’s Seventieth Week to a time just prior to his Second Advent (Matthew 24:5, **Mt 24:15).    +Lk 2:10.   +Jn 5:39.  +Ro 1:4.  Messiah.  FS22D5L,  +Ps 45:7.  +*Ge 3:15.   Ps 22:15.  89:44, 45.  *Is 53:8.  *Mk 9:12.  +*Lk 24:25-27,  45-47.   Jn 1:41.  11:51, 52.  12:32-34.  Ac 18:5.  **2 Cor 5:21.  Ga 3:13.   1 P 2:21,  24.   *1 P 3:18.   cut off.  i.e. in death (CB).   Ge 9:11.   Ex 12:15.  30:33, 38.  =Le 4:4.  7:20.  18:29.  20:17.  Dt 20:20.  Ps 37:9, 34.  88:16.  94:23.  Pr 2:22.  Is 44:14h.  Je 10:3h.  11:19.  Mt 17:23.  26:24, 56.  27:50.  Mk 14:21.  Lk 5:35.  9:22.  Jn 19:30.  Ac 2:22, 23.  3:18.  8:33.  13:41.  He 9:15.  but not. or, and shall have nothing.  Scott cites Lowth, who notes “The vulgar Latin render the words to this sense,  ‘The people that deny him, shall  be no longer his’ Da 11:17h,” and Rabbi Croll,  “He  shall have  no  successor.”   As of the risen Messiah’s  kingdom there shall be no end,  so he has no successor.   Ge 5:24.   42:36.  *Ps 22:6,  7.   *Is 53:4-6, 8n, Is 53:12.  Je 31:15.  Zc 13:7.  $Mt 20:28.  26:56.  Mk 14:50.  *Jn 1:11.  +*Jn 14:30.  for himself.  T#1976.  Is 50:6.   *Is 53:4, 5, 6, 12.  $*Mt 20:28.  Mk 10:45.  *Jn 10:11, 15, 18.  Ro 4:25.  +*1 Cor 15:3.  Phil 2:7.  $*1 P 2:24.   +*Re 1:5,  6.  and the people, etc. or, and the Jews they shall be no more his people.   Da 11:17.   Ho 1:9.   and the people. or, and the prince’s (Messiah’s, ver. 25) future people.  Note:  The  Romans,  who under Titus,  after the expiration of  the  70 weeks,  destroyed the temple and city,  and dispersed the Jews.  Rather,  after the sixty-nine weeks,  for the Angel specifically states,  after having already discussed the first seven weeks, that this takes place after the additional sixty-two weeks.  Da 2:40.  =Nu 24:24.  Lk 19:41-44.  21:20.  Jn 11:48.   the prince that shall come.  or, a prince, etc.  This is “the little horn” of Da 7:8, 24-26;  8:9-12, 23-25 (CB).  This  is  a reference  to  the  future Antichrist,  not  to  the Messiah or to the Roman Titus.   Da 7:8,  20, 21, 24-26.  8:9-12, 23-25.  11:36-45.  +**Mic 5:5n, Mic 5:6.   +*Hab  3:16.   shall destroy.   The  subject of this verb is “people,”  not  “prince,” therefore the following references must not be taken to relate to Titus,  for  Titus  is  not mentioned in  Scripture,  though  the destruction of the city and the temple which his forces  wrought, of course, is.  Dt 28:49, 52.  2 S 21:5.  Mt 21:41.  Mk 12:9.  the city and.  This also was “after threescore and two weeks,” but not within the last seven; which are confined to the doings of “the people” in the destruction of the city, which ends ver. 26.

He defiled it, but left it uninjured (CB).  Mt 21:41.  *Mt 22:2, 7.  *Mt 23:38.   +*Mt 24:2, 3.  Mk 13:2.  Lk 18:31.  *Lk 19:41-44.  21:6, **Lk 21:12-24.  Ac 6:13,  14.   and the end thereof.  or, his own end [come]:  i.e. the end of the desolator looking on to the end of the last seven years (CB).  Da 8:19.  11:36.  *Mt 24:6-14.  Mk 13:7.  **Lk 21:12-24.  with a flood.   *Da 11:10, 22.  Ps 124:4.  *Is 8:7, 8.  28:2, 18.  Je 46:7, 8.  +Je 47:2.  51:42, 51.  Ezk 26:19.  Am 8:8.  9:5.   Na  1:8.  unto the end of the war.  or, up to the full end of the war (i.e. the end of the last seven years) [CB].  Da 12:1.   *Mt 24:6,  7,  14, 21.  Mk 13:7, 8, 19.   Lk 17:37.  *Lk 21:10, 20,  24.  Ro 9:28.  Re 6:3-8.  desolations are determined.   or,  it shall be cut off by desolations.  Is 28:22.   *Is 64:10.  Zc 11:6.  Ml 4:6.   Lk 13:35.   desolations.  or, desolate places.   Mt 23:38.  are determined.  ver. 25 (wall,  or ditch).   Da 11:36.   Jb 14:5.   Is 10:22, 23.  Lk 21:22.  23:31.   There is  an unannounced  interval of time between this last and the following statements.   For  other instances of unannounced prophetic  time intervals see +Is 61:2n.

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.  

  1. Daniel 9:27.  And  he.   Amillenarians favor taking “Messiah” as the antecedent  for  this  pronoun,   and  would  perhaps  favor  the following  original  Treasury  references:   *Is  42:6.   *Is 53:11.  +*Is 55:3.   +*Je 31:31-34.  +*Je 32:40-42. ** Ezk 16:60-63.  Mt 26:28.  *Ro 5:15,  19.   **Ro 15:8,  9.

Da 9:26.  Da 7:8, 23, 24.  8:23-25.  11:36-45.  1 J 2:18.  shall confirm.  or, make a firm covenant:  i.e. the little horn will do this at the beginning of the last seven years. It may even be the beginning of the 2300 days of Da 8:14. Compare Da 11:21-24 (CB).   Is  28:18.  *Is 42:6.   *Is 53:11.  +**Is 55:3.   +*Je 31:31-34.  +*Je 32:40-42.  **Ezk 16:60-63.  Mt 26:28.  *Ro 5:15,  19.   **Ro 15:8,  9.   Ga 3:13-17.  *He 6:13-18.  7:22.  8:8-13.  *He 9:15-20, 28.  10:16-18.  *He 13:20, 21.  Re 11:3-6.  the covenant. or, a covenant.  **Da 11:21-24.  Ps 55:20.   Is 28:18.  33:8.   Je 19:7.  Zc 11:10.  Lk 22:20x.   By no means should this covenant be understood to be made by the Messiah!   For one thing,  it is in the wrong time frame,  the seventieth week of Daniel’s prophecy.  For  another,  Christ did not make any seven year covenants which he then proceeded to break after three and one half years!   This is the seven-year covenant made by Antichrist with the Jewish nation,  which the Antichrist breaks in the middle of the tribulation.  with many.  or, with the many.   for one week.  This is Daniel’s seventieth week, a time period of  seven years which is yet  future,  as  careful consideration of events described in its connection will show.  Ge 29:27.  Re 11:7.  cause the sacrifice.  Mt 27:51.  He 10:4-22.  Amillenarians   would  probably  favor  the  preceding   original Treasury references,  suggesting that Christ’s death on the cross put  an  end to sacrifices and offerings,  for He truly  was  the completion  of all the Old Testament types,  whose one  sacrifice forever put away sin.  More consistent with the immediate context however,  which  places  this event during the future seventieth week,  is the Premillennial  view  which holds  this  to  be  a reference to the Antichrist forbidding the Jews the right to have sacrifices in their temple, much as did Antiochus in former times (see on Da 8:11). Furthermore, the Temple sacrifices did not cease being offered at the time of the death and resurrection of Christ, but nearly 40 years later at the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70. Of course the efficacy of the Temple sacrifices ceased upon the death and resurrection of Christ, the signal visual evidence being the fact that the veil in the Temple was rent or torn from top to bottom (Mt 27:51).   Da 7:25.   8:11,  12, 13.  11:31.  12:11.  *Mt 24:15.  27:51.   2 Th 2:4.   Re 11:3.   12:6,  14.  13:1, 5, 6.  and the oblation to cease.  or, sacrifice and oblation to cease.  This is the action of “the little horn” (see Da 8:11-13; 11:31; 12:11). This belongs to the time of the end, and will be accompanied by the setting up of the abomination mentioned below and by our Lord in Mt 24:15 (CB).  Da 7:25.  8:11.  11:31.  Ex 29:38.  Le 15:31.  Nu 7:60-64.  2 K 16:15.  Ho 3:4.  2 Th 2:4.  He 10:11.  for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate.   or, with the abominable armies.   or,  upon the battlements shall be the  idols of the desolator.   Da  8:13.   12:11.   Is  8:8.  64:10.   **>Mt 24:15.   Mk 13:14.   Lk 21:20.  abominations.  The plural here (in contrast to the singular form at Da 11:31) may be a plural of importance,  the  same in its emphasis as what has elsewhere been called the plural of majesty (FS96F2,  +Ge 4:10).   The reference is probably to the desecrating influence upon the temple and land of  Israel brought  by the placement  of some  terrible “abomination,”  image or idol,  in the temple,  for this word frequently refers to  God’s abhorrence of pagan idols and idolatry.   Da 8:13.  11:31.  *Da 12:11.  2 K 23:13.  Is 10:22, 23.  28:22.  44:19.   *Is 66:3.   +*Is 66:17n.  Je 7:30.  **Mt 24:15, 16, 24.   Lk 21:24.  Ro 11:26.  2 Th 2:9-12.  Re 13:14-16.  14:9-14.   19:20.   20:4.   make it desolate.  That is, the Jewish temple.  Da 8:9-14.   11:45.   12:1,  7, 11.  Ps 74:3.  Je 51:51.  Hag 1:4.  **Mt 24:15.  Lk 13:35.  **2 Th 2:4.  Re 11:1,  2.   13:6, 14, 15.  even until.  *Da 8:17, 19.  11:35.    the consumation.  The end of the seventieth week, so also the end of the Great Tribulation, and of many  other prophetic events which culminate at  that  time.  Da 8:17, 19.   Is 10:22,  23.   +*Is 28:22.   Je 4:27.  5:10, 18.  30:11.  46:28.  Ezk 11:13.   Jl 3:1,  2,  9-16.  Na 1:8, 9.  Zc 14:1-3.  Mt 24:29-31.  25:31-46.   Ro 11:25-29.   Re 16:19.  that determined.  Da 11:36.  +*Le 26:14-20.  Dt 4:26-28.  28:15, etc.  Dt 29:18, etc.  Dt 30:17, 18.  31:28, 29.  32:19, etc.  *Jb 14:5.  Ps 69:22-28.  Pr 16:4, 5.  *Is 10:22,  23.   *Is 28:18-22.   *Is 66:5,  6.  Zc 11:6.  13:8.  Ml 4:6.  Mt 24:2.  Mk 12:9.  Lk 2:34.  +*Lk 17:37.  19:43.  21:6, 22.  Ac 13:41.  Ro 9:28.  11:26.  1 Th 2:15,  16.   **2 Th 2:3-12.   shall be poured. or, shall come pouring upon.  Je 42:18.  +Ezk 7:8.  Re 16:1-4, 8, 10, 12,  17.   upon the desolate.   or, upon the desolator.  Da 7:11, 25, 26.  8:25.  11:45.  12:11.  Is 11:4.  +Mic 5:5n.  2 Th 1:7-10.  **2 Th 2:3-12.  Jude 1:14, 15.  Re 19:20.  20:10.
