Daniel's 70th Week

The restoration

Daniel’s prophecy of the 70th week is significant for two reasons:

1. God affirms that His Kingdom will come after 70 weeks which will include the fulfillment of His covenant promises (Dan 9:24).

2. God reveals a timeline.

a) When the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem is announced, Jerusalem will be rebuilt in 7 weeks (Dan 9:25).

b) 62 weeks later, Messiah the Prince will arrive and afterwards be cut off (Dan 9:25-26).

c) The 70th week appears discontinuous and does not follow the 69th week. Instead begins with the emergence of the "one who makes desolate" (Dan 9:27).
