Did Daniel the Prophet Accurately Predict the Timing of Jesus’ Death?

The short answer to this question is yes. Below I have presented the longer answer. According to Daniel (9:24-27) “Seventy ‘sevens’ are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the Most Holy …
