70 weeks of Daniel
(The Bible: Accuracy and Inerrancy)

Seventy weeks of Daniel

The kingdoms of Greece, and Rome, and Medo Persia were foretold before they came to be a world power. Also, the time of the Messiah, and a lot of other things.

In this, we can see that it was impossible for man to predict accurately.

"The Triumphal Entry

Then, one day, He meticulously arranges it.7 On this particular day he rode into the city of Jerusalem riding on a donkey, deliberately fulfilling a prophecy by Zechariah that the Messiah would present Himself as king in just that way:

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

Zechariah 9:9

Whenever we might easily miss the significance of what was going on, the Pharisees come to our rescue. They felt that the overzealous crowd was blaspheming, proclaiming Jesus as the Messiah the King.8 However, Jesus endorsed it!

I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.

Luke 19:40

This is the only occasion that Jesus presented Himself as King. It occurred on April 6, 32 A.D.9

The Precision of Prophecy

When we examine the period between March 14, 445 B.C. and April 6, 32 A.D., and correct for leap years, we discover that it is 173,880 days exactly, to the very day!

How could Daniel have known this in advance? How could anyone have contrived to have this detailed prediction documented over three centuries in advance? "
http://www.khouse.org/articles/2004/552/

Alexander the Great, for example was one of the kings pinpointed.
"Dan 11:3 And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will. 4 And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.

His kingdom was not left to his kids, but to 4 generals, that divided it.

That could not have been guessed at. Someone saw it, and reported it. Quantum weirdness, move over, the genuine article is here.

Chapter and verse of your Biblical source(s) please. Online links would be nice. Also, please quote the relevant Biblical passages.

Please edit your message 1, and then post a new message notifying us that changes were made.

I also want a more topic theme specific topic title. "Bible accuracy" is only slightly better than "A question". A topic title change is also done via editing message 1.

Wow - Too much
Thank you for your efforts, but I've come to realize that we're covering too many prophesies for one topic.

I recommend that you save a copy of this page for future reference, or perhaps you've already done via some sort of text file.

Then we need to cut message 1 down to just one prophesy or area of prophesy. You can perhaps move on to other prophesies later.

Please edit down message 1 per above suggestion. Another topic title change is also needed, to reflect the greater focus. Then post another message saying the edit has been done.

By the way - You seem to have flip-flopped you designations of your original input and your quotes. What is as a quote shouldn't be, and what isn't should be.

Sorry about not making these suggestion in my first message, but such is life. Just think of it this way - I critique because I care :).

Added by pre-post edit:

Checking one of your sources, I see this is a lot of cut and paste, which we generally frown upon. This material mixes quoting scripture and interpretation. I find this problematic - I offhand would prefer that data and interpretation be kept separate.

Tell you what. Post a more focused message (per above suggestions) as a new message in this topic. It may need further editing, but as I see it, that's that best way to go.

Input from other admins certainly welcome.

Topic promoted with considerable reservations
Boy, that thing sure seems to be a muddled mess to me, but I guess I'll give you bonus points for your efforts and put it out there for the general membership to evaluate.
