Tag Archives: 70 weeks of daniel
Several months ago I spent some time reading Daniel in its entirety. While reading Daniel 9, I had a revelation into 2 verses that contain a lot of controversy in the world of prophecy interpretation. The traditional christian view built entire theological doctrines around it, but I can see where the interpretation comes when reading the NIV. With many “messianic” teachers still teaching the same thing, I felt it was time to dispel the myth. The KJV, although not without error, was produced long before man’s past century doctrines played a role in manipulating the verses in question. So, we will use it to study from. There are however, several other translations that get this translation correct as well.
Before we get started, read Daniel 9 in complete context… the entire chapter. It will only take a few minutes but will greatly increase your discernment in these matters. For bonus points, read it once in NIV and then again in KJV. You should notice stark differences in 9:24 and 9:27 especially.
