...based on 1000 years
to each day, it would cover a timeframe of 70,000 years
instead of 490 – which is just slightly ridiculous!
So lets break down the prophecy to see what's going on and being said:
"Seventy weeks are decreed for your people and your holy city" — 70 weeks, or 490 years
(70x7), have been decreed by God as the time set for the following things to take place for the Jews and Jerusalem. These things can be split up into six parts:
To finish the transgression
To put an end to sin
To atone for iniquity
To bring in everlasting righteousness
To seal both vision and prophet
To anoint a most holy place (Heb. or "thing" or "one").
