The Seventy Weeks


Three main views are held. (1) The critical view says that the “prophecy” was written by a pseudo-Daniel in 165 b.c. and synchronizes (inaccurately) with the history between 586 b.c. (Jerusalem’s fall) and 164 b.c. (Antiochus). (2) The dispensational view has the sixty-ninth week terminating before the Crucifixion, leaving the seventieth (the present age being a “great parenthesis”) to be fulfilled in the Great Tribulation. (3) The conservative, or traditional, view says the seventieth week was introduced by Christ’s baptism and bisected (three and a half years) by his death, thus causing the sacrifices to cease (Dan.9.27).
