Discussion for Daniel 8:14

  • In Verse 13 of Daniel 8, two heavenly being was shown to Daniel in Susa, one ask the other and the other answered him who ask not to Daniel. The 2300 evening and morning (ereb boqer) not days. It was confirmed in Verse 26 of Daniel. This is a vision of evenings and mornings, the daily sacrifices they offer not number of days. This leads to the disappointment of the Millerite Movements and was carried by the Seventh Day Adventist. King James Bible has a lots of error and it is not good because many people are using it without studying the original Hebrew words that lead them to commit error. It is obvious that two heavenly being having a conversation, one ask to the other and why the other answered to Daniel? This very elementary error.
