Greg, here are my answers to your questions.

2. What is your view on the year of the “cutting off event”?  To my knowledge scripture does not give us the calendar year that Jesus was crucified My guess would be the year A.D. 33.  Greg, you state that the messiah was cutoff on Nisan 10.  I strongly disagree.  Nisan 10 is the day the Jews selected the lambs to be sacrificed.  Four days later on Nisan 14, the lambs were killed. Nisan 10 is the day of Jesus triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Four days later on Nisan 14, Jesus was killed.

3. You state, You obviously do not believe in the “gap theory” Your statement is not correct. I believe the gap started when Jesus was crucified in the midst of the 70th week, which leaves only 3 ½ years of the 70th week remaining to be fulfilled. I believe the time gap started with the crucifixion and will end 3 ½ years before the Second Coming of Jesus.  These 3 ½ years are the last half of Daniel 70th week. These 3 ½ years are the great tribulation of the entire world.

 

3. cont. You state, “There are gaps in “covenant” time between each segment.”  I disagree. I do not see a gap between the end of the 7 weeks and the start of the 62 weeks or the start of the 70th week.  As I stated above, I think the only gap started when Jesus was killed in the middle of the 70th week.  You stated that I “do not believe there was a gap between the 69th and 70th weeks of years.”  That is correct, no gap between the 69 and 70th week.

4. You state,Daniel 9:27 DOES NOT tell us that Jesus was cutoff in the midst of the 70th week.”  If the 3 he’s in Daniel 9:27 are not Jesus, who do you think they are?

4. cont.  You state: “This view contradicts the plain meaning of the verse, including the Daniel 12:11 declaration, and the forms of daily Hebrew offerings to God I believe that God no longer accepts the blood sacrifice of animals after Jesus shed His sinless blood on the cross to atone for all sins.  Therefore, I believe Daniel 12:11 is saying that from the time 1,290 before the Second Coming of Christ, the abomination of desolation (the Gog-Magog army) will be setup around Israel.

6. You state, “Not who, but what.   A literal reading of the text answers the question.  In the midst of the 70th week the “sacrifice and oblation” will CEASE, or be cut off as you put it.   I believe that all 3 “he’s” in Daniel 9:24 are referring to Jesus.

7. Greg, great to hear that you believe the 3 he” in Daniel 9:27 is Jesus Christ. Romans 15:8 confirms it was Jesus who was in the process of confirming the promises made to the fathers.

8. See my answers to number 4.

9. By your answer, my question was not specific enough. Let me try again. When did Jesus become Messiah the Prince?

10. Agreed, Romans 15:8 clearly that Jesus was a minister to confirm the promises made to the fathers – Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and their descendants.

11. You said, It’s not daily.”  I agree. The Jews were doing daily sacrifices for years, but when Jesus died shed His blood on cross, He atoned for all sins once and for all, there was no longer any need for the Jews to offer animal blood sacrifices.  That’s has been my position for at least 25 years.  Sorry, if I wrote something that was not clear on this issue.

Your brother in Christ,

Garry
