JEREMIAH'S PROPHECY of JERUSALEM'S 70 YEARS OF CAPTIVITY

Jeremiah 25:8-11, Jeremiah 29:10 & II Chronicles 36:21

 605 B.C. - Original Captivity

Nebuchadnezzar took temple treasuries and the seed royal including Daniel to Babylon.

II Chronicles 36:6-7 and Daniel 1:1-3

597 B.C. - Nebuchadnezzar came, took the rest of the treasuries, King Jehoiachin and 10,000

                    prince's officers and chief men and carried them to Babylon. II Kings 24:14-16

586 B.C. - Babylonians burned Jerusalem, broke down its walls and put out the eyes of King

                  Zedekiah, leaving only a remnant of the poorest class of people. II Kings 25:8-12

 

DANIEL - CHAPTER 9

Verse 1 -   In the first year Darius...the Medes... - 539 B.C. Darius assumed the rule of

                 Babylon. This change of power caused Daniel to search the scriptures to

                 determine if there was any prophetic significance of the capture of Babylon

                  by the Persians.

Verse 2 -   606 B.C. First Captivity of Jerusalem

                  -70 Years of Jeremiah's prophecy (cf above)

               =536 B.C. the prophecy should be fulfilled

536 B.C. - 49,897 return from Babylon to Jerusalem. Zerubbabel with 42,360 Jews, 7,337

                  servants, 200 singers, 736 horses, 245 mules, 435 camels, 6,720 asses, 5,400 gold

                  and silver vessels.

 

OR ANOTHER WAY TO RECKON JEREMIAH'S 70 YEARS

Verse 2 -   586 B.C. Jerusalem burned by Babylonians the temple is destroyed.

 -  70  Years of Jeremiah's prophecy (cf: above)

              =  516 B.C. the prophecy of Jeremiah was fulfilled and the new temple was dedicated.

                  516 B.C.  12th month March, the 3rd day, the temple is completed

                  536 B.C.   7th month, they build an altar and offer sacrifices

                  535 B.C.  Work on the temple begun and stopped

        520 B.C.  Work renewed by Haggai and Zechariah

        457 B.C.  Ezra returned with 1,754 males, 100 talents of gold, 750 talents of silver.

                                 Journey took four months.

                  444 B.C.  Nehemiah as governor with an army escort went to rebuild walls and

                                   fortify the city at government expense       

            Note that there is exactly 20 years in God's last warning to Judah, 606 B.C. the first

            Captivity and 586 B.C. destruction of Jerusalem and the final captivity.

                  606 B.C.

                 -586 B.C. the destruction of Jerusalem

                   20 years

                  

          And there is exactly 20 years between the first return in 536 B.C. and the dedication                                of the Temple in 516 B.C.

 

 

Daniel's 70 Weeks of Years

Daniel 9:1-27

 

 

The Commandment to restore and rebuild Jerusalem

 

                  Four decrees are mentioned in scripture:

 

                  536 B.C.  The decree of Cyrus. II Chronicles 36:22-23, Ezra 1:1-4

                  516-19 B.C. The decree of Darius I. Ezra 6:1, 6:12

                  457 B.C.  The decree of Artaxerxes I. Ezra 7:11-26

                  444 B.C.  Artaxerxes to Nehemiah. Nehemiah 2:1-8

 

Daniel 9:24 weeks, i.e. Hebrew sabbatical year or 7 full years.

Daniel 9:25                      7  seven weeks of sabbatical years

60     threescore (60 weeks of sabbatical years)

                                     +  2  and 2 weeks of sabbatical years

                                     =69  weeks of sabbatical years

                                     x  7   years each

                                is   483  years.

 

RECKONING BASED on A SOLAR CALENDAR for ALL THE WORLD TO SEE

               

                 457 B.C.  A principal commandment to restore and rebuild Jerusalem

                -483 years   i.e. 69 weeks of years or 69 x 7 = 483 years

        26 A.D.  The very year that Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist & began HIS

                        public ministry.

                 -30 years -A Jewish Rabbi must be 30 to teach

                    4 B.C.    Approximate date MESSIAH to be born.

 

                                  Further more, within 3 years (midst of week) of 26 A.D. - in 30 A.D,

                                 JESUS is crucified - shall MESSIAH be cut off. Daniel 9:26

                               He (Jesus) shall cause the sacrifice and the obligation to cease

      This is the point of the entire book of Hebrews no more blood of bulls & goats after 30AD

Abominations He (Jesus) shall make it desolate in His coming in the destruction of Jerusalem (last 3 years) 66-70AD by Titus of Rome. cf: Matthew 24:1ff

RECKONING BASED on a LUNAR CALENDAR SPECIFICALLY for the JEWS

                

                 444 B.C.  Using a 360, 12 month, 30 day calendar, Sir Robert Anderson was the first to calculate that the 69th week would fall on Palm Sunday just before the crucifixion in 30 A.D.
