"The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah in the fourth year of Jehiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, that was the first year of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon." Jeremiah 25:1. The fourth year of king Jehoikim is 526 B.C. -- 4 years 529 B.C. to 526 B.C. Adding the kings of Judah up to the fourth year of Jehoikim's reign: 17+3+41+25+8+1+6+40+29+52+16+16+29+55+2+31+(.5)+4 = 375.5 So from the first king of Judah to the fourth year of Jehoikim's reign is 375.5 years this calculated: 900-375.5 = 524.5 B.C. Add 1 to include year 900 then: 524.5+1 = 525.5 B.C. 🠇 525.5 B.C. -- 1st year of captivity The King of Babylon -- Seventy years Captivity of the Jews "Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north, saith the Lord, and Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and an hissing, and perpetual desolations." Jeremiah 25:9. This 525.5 B.C. "And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years." Jeremiah 25:11. Seventy years of Capitivity 🠇 🠇 "And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith the Lord, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations." Jeremiah 25:12. And so the calculation: 525.5-70 = 455.5 Adding 1 to include year 525.5 B.C., then 455.5+1 = 456.5 B.C. 🠇 456.5 B.C. -- End of Babylonian Captivity of the Jews (By the Mede-Persian conquest). 456.5 -- last year of seventy year captivity. 456.5 -- also 1st year of reign of Cyrus king of Persia. 456.5 -- also 1st year of reign of Darius the Mede "king over the realm of the Chaldeans." Daniel 9:1. Also, Darius is the one who took the kingdom: "And Darius the Median took the kingdom, being threescore and two years old." Daniel 5:31. As a side note: (as of taking Babylon) Cyrus king of Persia -- reigns 3 years. Reign: 456.5 thru 454.5 B.C. (in Books of 2 Chronicles & Ezra & Daniel). Darius the Mede (Son of Asharuerus) -- reigns 6 years total: three years as Darius the Mede; then three years as king of Pesia. Reign: 456.5 thru 451.5 B.C. (in Books of Ezra & Daniel). Asharuerus-Exerxes (old age) -- reigns 12 years. Reign: 450.5 thru 439.5 B.C. (in Book of Esther). Artaxerxes I -- reigns 32 years. Reign: 438.5 thru 407.5 B.C. (in Book of Nehemiah). Artaxertes II Mnemon (began reign 406.5 B.C.). Artaxertex III Ochus (the richest). (fulfilling Daniel 11:2). Darius Codomanus (Persia conquered by Alexander the Great 331 B.C.). "Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, an put it also in writing, saying, "Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, the Lord God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah." (Ezra 1:1-2; also ref. 2 Chronicles 36:22-23). (This decree fulfilled Daniel's prophecy in the 2nd verse below). 456.5 B.C. Introduction to the Prophecy of the Seventy Weeks of Years Calculation for the weeks comes out of the Book of Leviticus 25:8 Most Amazing Prophecy: given by the angel Gabriel to Daniel. seventy weeks: 70 * 7 = 490 years seven weeks: 7 * 7 = 49 years sixty-weeks: 62 * 7 = 434 years one week: 1 * 7 = 7 years threescore and two weeks: means 62 weeks seven weeks plus sixty-two weeks: is 69 weeks midst of a week: is half a week added together: 69.5 weeks (sixty-nine and a half) 49 + 434 = 483 years 483 + 3.5 = 486.5 years 483 + 7 = 490 years Seventy Weeks of Years leads to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ (below are the four verses of the Prophecy of the Seventy Weeks of Years) *The calculations for the prophecy* 🠇 "Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city to For Completion: 70 weeks equals 490 years. finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make recon- -- ciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

Nehemiah 5:14;6:15). 456.5 B.C -- the date for end of the Babylonian Captivity. 456.5 - 49 + 1 = 408.5 B.C.: The street and the wall finished. These seven weeks were completed. The Sixty-two Weeks After that: 62 weeks equals 434 years These sixty-two weeks were completed directly after the seven weeks. 62 weeks + 7 weeks = 69 weeks This results in: 434 years + 49 years = 483 years So all 483 years have been completed. This to calculate involves going across into A.D which to calculate: 434 - 407.5 = 26.5 A.D. the beginnning of Jesus' ministry since announcing Messiah. The ministry lasted 3.5 years to calculate: 26.5 + 3.5 = 30 A.D. the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Another way to calculate this calculation is by this form: 456.5 + 30 = 486.5 years which is 69.5 weeks completed. One-half week YET to be completed for the end of the age: 3.5 years. "And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be "cut off", but not for After the 62 weeks which is after the himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the -- 7 weeks Messiah is to be "cut off". city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto Also the Roman General Titus with his the end of the war desolations are determined. troops will attack Jerusalem and his troops will destroy the sanctuary without his consent. Which this did happen in 70 A.D. which Jesus also prophecied in: Matthew 24:2; Luke 19:44. The Last Week "And he (Jesus Christ) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: This is the last week: the seventyenth week. and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation -- Jesus is baptised; the Holy Ghost descends to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, on Jesus and he declares his ministry in even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the Nazareth as in Luke 4:4-30. Jesus completes desolate." Daniel 9:24-27. the first half of this week; then is "cut off". No more sacrifices are suffice, and when the last half of the week ensues the Seven Seals will be opened and the vial judge- ments poured: three and one-half years.
This leaving one-half week (3.5 years) YET to be fulfilled Jesus was born proposedly: In Fall year 5 B.C. The "wise men from the east" evidently had predicted the exact birth time of the Messiah. (Matthew 2:1). Jesus was thirty years old at the beginning of his ministry; and was crucified at thirty-three and a half years old. (ref. Luke 3:23). "Hour has come" (John 13:1) "Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. "And after the sop Satan entered into him Then said unto him, That thou doest, do it quickly." (John 13:26-27). Crucifixion: April 6, 30 A.D. (69.5 weeks in completion: 486.5 years) One-half week YET to be fulfilled to complete the Seventyenth Week: 3.5 years; "and to anoint the most Holy". 70 * 7 = 490 years. 🠇 The Opening of the Seven Seals (The last half of the Seventyenth Week) (ref. Revelation 5:1)
