Daniel 9:24 – seventy week timeframe

Daniel 9: 24


[symple_box color=”blue” fade_in=”false” float=”center” text_align=”left” width=””]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.[/symple_box]


These seventy weeks is actually four hundred and ninety years. The most Holy who will come is the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus reconciles the Father to fallen man. Jesus fulfills the law, and brings in grace. God not only forgives the sinner, but makes provision for his forgiveness to be lawful. Jesus became the substitute for all of mankind. He reconciles us to the Father with His precious shed blood.

The prophecy of the seventy weeks is crucial for understanding biblical prophecy. Every statement (in verses 24-27), is important and deserves special attention. The first interpretive problem is the meaning of the expression seventy weeks. The word “weeks” is a Hebrew word shabua that can refer to any period of seven: seven days, seven months, seven years, and so on. Only the context indicates what period of seven is intended. There are four good reasons for believing that the “seven” intended here is a period of seven years:


Daniel 9:24

(1)  Daniel has just been concerned about years.

(2)  It is impossible to fit the events (of verses 24-27), into 490 days or weeks.

(3)  In the only other place where Daniel uses the word week, he qualifies it by adding the word days.

(4)  Finally, the fact that (verse 27), speaks of a covenant being broken at the half way point of the seventieth seven agrees well with (Daniel 7:25, 12:7 and Revelation 12:14), which speak of three and one half years as one half of a week. In sum (verse 24) declares that God had determined a period of 490 years to accomplish six key activities on behalf of Israel. Each divine act is marked out by an infinitive: to finish the transgression, to make an end of sins, and so on. The first three are negative and the last three are positive.
