Daniel 9:24-25, Seventy Weeks and the Messiah

Jesus presents Himself as King 173,880 days from the decree to rebuild Jerusalem. This piece of scripture was written approximately 536 B.C. This is a truly amazing piece of scripture as it predicts that Jesus as the Messiah would be rejected and killed by His own people.

"Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place.

"So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress.
