In 605 B.C., Nebuchadnezzar conquered Israel, destroyed the land and temple, and took the most able of the Jews into captivity in Babylon. Among these was Daniel, who was then a young man “without any physical defect, handsome, showing aptitude for learning, well informed, and quick to understand.” (Daniel, chapter 1, verses 1-4) Daniel and three friends were trained for three years. They learned the Babylonian language, however they refused the rich food and wine that Nebuchadnezzar offered them and instead ate only vegetables and drank only water. As a result they grew in health, and “God gave them knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning.”Daniel came to understand dreams and visions. He was an exceptional being and became even more so; he eventually became a prophet.
In about 570 B.C., while Daniel was praying to God to allow his people to go back to Jerusalem and rebuild their temple, that is, to absolve his people from their sins (Daniel 9:16-19), he had a vision of the angel Gabriel. Gabriel told Daniel how long it would take for the Jews to get completely released from their sins: "Seventy 'sevens' are determined for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophesy and to anoint the most holy." (Daniel 9:24) The word translated here as 'seven,' sometimes translated as 'week,' is the Hebrew word 'SHABUWA,' which means a period of seven years. Thus, the angel is telling Daniel that 70 periods of seven years each, or 490 years, will be needed for the Jews to overcome their desires sufficiently to permanently put an end to sin.
In the next verse (Daniel 9:25) Gabriel tells Daniel when those 490 years are to begin: "Know and understand this: From the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One (Messiah), the ruler, comes, there will be seven 'sevens,' and sixty-two 'sevens.' " 7 plus 62 is 69 periods of seven years, or 483 years. (During the first seven 'sevens,' or 49 years, Jerusalem and the temple were rebuilt, and the sixty-two 'sevens' were the period between that restoration and the coming of the Messiah.) The number of days in a prophetic Hebrew year is 360 (not the 365.25 days of our solar year), thus the number of days from the issuing of the decree to the coming of the Messiah is 483 times 360 days, or 173,880 days. The restoration decree was issued by King Artaxerxes Longimanus on the first day of the Jewish month of Nisan in the twentieth year of his rule, 14 March 445 B.C. Counting forward from that day 173,880 days brings one to the tenth day of the month of Nisan A.D. 32, which is 6 April A.D. 32. 6 April A.D. 32 is the day Jesus of Nazareth rode into Jerusalem on a colt, presenting himself as Israel's Messiah.
