How are the judgments upon Jerusalem again foretold?


"And for the overspreading of abominations He shall make it desolate, even until the
consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate!' Remainder of verse 27.
NOTE - Seventy weeks would be four hundred and ninety days; and as a day in prophecy
represents a year (Num. 14:34; Eze. 4:6), this period would be four hundred and ninety years. The
commandment to restore and build Jerusalem was brought to its completion by Artaxerxes Longimanus in
the seventh year of his reign (Ezra 6:14; 7:7,8), which, as already noted, was 457 BC. From this date the
sixty-nine weeks, or four hundred and eighty-three years, would extend to the baptism of Christ in AD. 27,
and the whole period to AD. 34, when the martyrdom of Stephen occurred, and the gospel began to be
preached to the Gentiles. Before the end of that generation Jerusalem was destroyed by the Romans, AD.
