Gabriel further said to Daniel: “After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing.” (Daniel 9:26) It was sometime after the end of the ‘seven plus sixty-two weeks and into the start of the last week,’ actually about three and a half years afterward, that Christ was cut off in death on a torture stake, giving up all that he had which was materially nothing nor did he have a stable home for himself, as a ransom for mankind. (Isaiah 53:8; Luke 9:58)

Evidence indicates that the first half of the “week” was spent by Jesus in the ministry. On one occasion, likely in the fall of 32 C.E as he was speaking, gave an illustration apparently speaking of the un-repentant Jewish nation as a non-producing fig tree (compare Matthew 17:15-20; 21:18, 19, 43) that had borne no fruit for “three years.” The vinedresser said to the owner of the vineyard: “Master, let it alone also this year, until I dig around it and put on manure; and if then it produces fruit in the future, well and good; but if not, you shall cut it down.” (Luke 13:6-9) He may have referred here to the time period of his own ministry to that unresponsive nation, which ministry had continued at that point for about three years and was to continue into a fourth year.

Messiah was indeed cut off within that time. Counting from the start of the second month of the secular Jewish calendar: 2. Bul (October-November), 3. Chislev (November-December), 4. Tebeth (December-January), 5. Shebat (January-February), 6. Adar (February-March), 7. Nisan (March-April) Jesus was killed or cut off in death Nisan 14, 33 C.E.; exactly 6 months into the new year or 3 years 6 months into the final week or to the middle of the seven.

Each symbolic week is the equivalent to 7 literal years as each symbolic day in that week represents 1 literal year.


Typo above. Correction: Each symbolic week is the equivalent to 49 literal years as each symbolic day in that week represents 7 literal years.

The half of the week or ''in the middle of the seven'' would be at the middle of seven years, or after three and a half years within that “week” of years. Since the 70th week began about the fall of 29 C.E. at Jesus’ baptism and anointing to be Christ or Messiah, half of that week (three and a half years) would extend to the spring of 33 C.E., or Passover time (Nisan 14) of that year. This day appears to have been April 1, 33 C.E. (to where April Fools Day has its roots), according to the Gregorian calendar. The apostle Paul tells us that Jesus came to do the will of God, which was to do away with what is first [the sacrifices and offerings according to the Law] that he may establish what is second. This he did by offering as a sacrifice his own body. Hebrews 10:1-10

Although the Jewish priests continued to offer sacrifices at the temple in Jerusalem until its destruction in 70 C.E., the sacrifices for sin ceased having acceptance and validity with God. Just before Jesus’ death he said to Jerusalem: “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing. Look, your house is left to you desolate.” (Matthew 23:37, 38) Christ “offered one sacrifice for sins perpetually . . . For it is by one sacrificial offering that he has made those who are being sanctified perfect perpetually.” After he had provided purification for sins God accepted. (Hebrews 1:3; 9:1-14 )

''Now where there is forgiveness [of sins and lawless deeds], there is no longer an offering for sin.” (Hebrews 10:12-14, 18) The apostle Paul points out that Jeremiah’s prophecy spoke of a new covenant, the former covenant (Law covenant) being thereby made obsolete and growing old, “near to vanishing away.” (Hebrews 8:7-13) These disappeared totally from Jewish practice when those who did not accept the Messiah befell to Rome as it destroyed Jerusalem in 70 C.E.
