We’re months away from Daniel 9 in this blog (okay, maybe even years, given the pace…), and you can be grateful for that. Trust me. One commentator has famously called the last part of Daniel 9 (Daniel’s “Seventy Weeks”) the “Dismal Swamp of O.T. criticism.” He really doesn’t exaggerate. Trust me.
However, I spent many weeks sorting through these verses this fall as I was working on my commentary. This all happened about the time an avid learner in the UK was putting together a series of blog posts on Daniel’s Seventy Weeks, and he asked if he could include me in his series. I was happy to participate.
