    70 weeks have been fulfilled. "He" in the 27th verse is the Messiah. This prophecy and vision is about the Messiah, and the time determined upon Daniel's people, City and Temple. After He was cut off, the covenant kept being confirmed by apostles and disciples by the Spirit of Christ to the circumcision until Acts 7. Romans 15:8 Galatians 3:17 Malachi 3:1, Micah 7:19-20, Luke 1:68-74, Acts 7.

    Close. 483 yrs from Artaxerxes command. This prophecy tells can the exact yr Jesus began ministry, cut off mid week (crucified) and God giving up on the Jews, giving it over to the Gentiles. The stoning of Stephen at end of last week. It all started in 457 BC. 27 ad Christ announced. Killed 31 ad, Steph stoned 34 ad. Not an anti-Christ, it's a system that's been around since Jesus left.

    was it 483 years from the time of the temple's rebuilding under Cyrus till

    Jesus rode on the donkey into the temple, claiming to be the Messiah? Therefore the last week or seven years is from the time the Anti-Christ commits the Abomination of Desolation which ends in the victorious return of our Lord?
