Prophecies of the Messiah – The Timing of His Coming

Prophecies of the Messiah – The Timing of His Coming

Messiah was to come before the destruction of Jerusalem & the Temple in 70 CE

The Hebrew Scriptures
Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince, there shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times. And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. (Daniel 9:25-26)

The New Testament
But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law. (Galatians 4:4)

Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down… this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.” (Matthew 24:1-2, 34)

Quotations and Comments
“He (Jonathan) moreover sought to make a Targum of the Hagiographa; but the bath Kol came forth and said, “Enough.” And why might he not execute a Targum of the Hagiographa? Because the End about the Advent of the Messiah is revealed in it. Rashi says, “In the Book of Daniel.”” (Megillah fol. 3a) full reference?

“And they [the Romans] fulfilled the prophecy given out against the Fatherland.” (Flavius Josephus)

 

When Daniel understood that the time had come for the Jews in Babylon to return home he prayed about the matter. He was given a revelation of the main features of Israel’s future – the restoration to the land, the Messiah’s coming, the making of reconciliation for iniquity, and, shockingly, the destruction of Jerusalem and Temple. The first and the last have undoubtedly taken place, so the middle ones must also have occurred. Messiah must have come, and done something to reconcile sinners. Yeshua came, and died for sinners, and forty years later the Temple was removed because it was no longer necessary.
