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.
So, if you’re up for it, here’s my take on Daniel’s Seventy Weeks. And if you’re really interested, you can follow the trail to four other interpretations on Lindsay’s site.
