Jesus Fulfilled The Purposes Of Daniel 9:24 During The 70th Week Of Daniel

This 70th week of Daniel Bible study focuses on how Christ fulfilled all that was purposed in Daniel 9:24

The reason this is so important is that many Pastors teach that because the Jews didn’t accept Jesus as their Messiah, and because they did not fulfill God’s requirements in verse 24; then they must be given more time to do it, which they teach will happen during the supposed 7-year tribulation period.

Let’s look at the purposes for the 70th week of Daniel, to see that it’s impossible for the Jews, or anyone, to fulfill the demands.

You will see that only Messiah the Prince, the Lamb of God, could fulfill them; which invalidates Pastors argument that the Jews will do it.

Before we go through these purposes to see how Christ fulfilled them, let’s look at the proper context.

Prior to this prophecy, the Israelites had failed to keep God’s commandments to them, which resulted in His punishing them:

Solomon worshiped the false gods of his foreign wives, which caused God to split the kingdom in two, the House of Israel and the House of Judah.

The northern House of Israel fell into worshiping the false gods of the Assyrians, so God caused the Assyrians to attack and scatter them.

The southern House of Judah (the Jews) fell into worshiping the false gods of the Babylonians, so God caused the Babylonians to kill those who resisted, and take captive those who cooperated. They were in captivity for 70 years, which is when the 70 weeks of Daniel prophecy was given.

Through all of these calamities, there was always a faithful remnant who believed in God by faith, such as Daniel and Isaiah.

But the majority sought to fulfill the law out of their flesh and they always failed, for “flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God” 1 Corinthians 15:50

So now God was giving the Jews 490 years to reconcile with Him and accept their coming Messiah.

God had punished them for 70 years, but His compassion caused Him to give them 490 years to reconcile with Him.

The simple context of the 70th week of Daniel is that the coming Messiah would offer salvation through the New Covenant to the House of Israel and the House of Judah.

Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.” Jeremiah 31:31

The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; For this is My covenant with them, When I take away their sins.” Romans 11:26

Those who accepted Him as their Messiah, the true Israelites of God would be saved. They would be saved to eternal life, but they would also be saved when they escaped the desolation of Jerusalem in 70 A.D., fulfilling the prophecy “so all Israel will be saved.

Those that rejected Him as their Messiah would be lost in their sins, and they would be desolated at the hands of the Roman army.

Here’s the purposes of the 70th weeks of Daniel prophecy that are given in Daniel 9:24.

Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.”

The prophet Daniel would have known the writings of Isaiah, and when you read Isaiah 53, which is a prophecy about the coming Messiah, you see many of the words that are used in Daniel 9:24-27, which also point to Jesus Christ.

He was wounded for our transgressions.

The Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all

For He was cut off. (Daniel 9:26 says “Messiah shall be cut off)

For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.

My righteous Servant shall justify many. (Daniel 27 says “he shall confirm a covenant with many“)

For He shall bear their iniquities.

And He bore the sin of many.

And made intercession for the transgressors.

To finish the transgression.

A remnant of Jews returned to rebuild the temple and the city, but a majority did not repent of their sins and stayed in Babylon even after they were set free.

During his ministry, most of them rejected Jesus as their promised Messiah.

In Jesus condemnation of the Jewish leaders He said, “Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers’ guilt. Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell?” Matthew 23:31-33

The ultimate transgression of the Hebrew people is expressed by Peter: “The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified His Servant Jesus, whom you delivered up and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let Him go. But you denied the Holy One and the Just, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and killed the Prince of life, whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses.” Acts 3:13-15

In what marked their final rejection of Jesus as their Messiah, the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem killed Stephen after he proclaimed, “You stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit; as your fathers did, so do you. Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those who foretold the coming of the Just One, of whom you now have become the betrayers and murderers, who have received the law by the direction of angels and have not kept it.” Acts 7:51-52

In Matthew 21:33-46 Jesus told the parable of the Wicked Vinedressers. In verse 43, Jesus told the Jews, “Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.”

This was fulfilled after the New Covenant was preached to the Jews for 7 years, then after Stephen was stoned to death, the message of the Gospel went to the nations (Gentiles).

Thus we see that the “thy people” of Daniel 9 24 included the very ones who were responsible for the death of their Messiah. The National transgression was complete.

Let’s now look at how Christ fulfilled the demand to finish the transgression.

He was taken from prison and from judgment, And who will declare His generation? For He was cut off  from the land of the living; for the transgressions of my people He was stricken.” Isaiah 53:8

Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.” Isaiah 53:12

So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.” John 19:30

And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.” Hebrews 9:15

To make an end of sins.

No man can stop sinning, so it’s impossible that the Jews could make an end of sins.

Let’s now look at how Christ made an end of sins.

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29

For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.” Romans 6:10

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,” Romans 8:2-3

For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.” Hebrews 9:26

Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.” Hebrews 9:28

And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God.” Hebrews 10:11-12

This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,” then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” Hebrews 10:16-17

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit.” 1 Peter 3:18

And you know that He was manifested to TAKE AWAY OUR SINS, and in Him there is no sin.”1 John 3:5

To make reconciliation for iniquity.

No man can make reconciliation for their sins, so this can’t apply to the Jews, only to our Savior.

Isaiah 53:5 foretold Jesus fulfillment, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.” Romans 5:10-11

Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.” Corinthians 5:18-19

For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight.” Colossians 1:19-22

Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.” Hebrews 2:17

Reconciliation for iniquity was accomplished by the sacrificial death of Christ as the Lamb of God.

To bring in everlasting righteousness.

No man could ever bring in everlasting righteousness, so this can’t apply to the Jews, only to our Savior.

Everlasting righteousness was what our Lord manifested in His sinless life, and by His life, death, and resurrection, Christ has made everlasting righteousness available to all who accept it by faith.

But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe.” Romans 3:21-22

But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God–and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.” 1 Corinthians 1:30

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21

For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.” Hebrews 8:12

Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness–by whose stripes you were healed.” 1 Peter 2:24

Is there any doubt that He ushered in everlasting righteousness?

To seal up the vision and prophecy.

Man cannot seal up the vision or prophecy, so this can’t apply to the Jews.

The Mosaic Law and covenant pointed to Jesus.  He sealed them up, that is, he accomplished them, answered to them to a tittle; all things that were written in the law, the prophets, and the psalms, concerning the Messiah, were fulfilled in him.

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.” Matthew 5:17

To anoint the Most Holy.

Only God can anoint the Most Holy. The returning Jews rebuilt the temple, but it was never anointed by God, the Ark of the Covenant was never placed there, and God’s presence didn’t fill the temple.

Jesus fulfilled this when He came in the flesh and our High Priest was anointed.

 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” Luke 4:18-19,21

Now there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit. And he cried out, saying, “Let us alone! What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Did You come to destroy us? I know who You are–the Holy One of God!” Mark 1:23-24

 “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.” Acts 10:38

In summary: All six of these purposes were fulfilled during the 70th week of Daniel. Jesus has fulfilled everything that He commanded the Jews to do.

In the words of the Messiah, “it is finished” John 19:30

Here’s more Bible studies that prove that Christ and His disciples fulfilled the 70th week of Daniel:

Daniel’s Goal and Christ’s Work

The Covenant In The 70th Week Of Daniel Is Jesus New Covenant, not an antichrist peace agreement with Israel

The 70th Week Of Daniel Prince was Jesus sending the Roman army to desolate Jerusalem and the Jews in 70 A.D., and is NOT an End Times Antichrist

An End Times Fulfillment of the 70th Week of Daniel is Illogical

  1. Hi David, thank you once again for being the soldier that you are! I am 100% in agreement with you but have a question for you. No translation prior to 1611 ever use the phrase “The most Holy Place” in Daniel 9:24. All your arguments are rock solid, but to the futurist they are worthless because they hold to a faulty translation.

    I can’t help but think the Vatican has something to do with this but yet to find evidence. So far, I have evidence such as yours, plus contextual evidence, and additional translational evidence. But yet to find a smoking gun such as Naos and hieron for the temple argument.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Thank you

    • Thank you for your comment Brian. The 1535 Miles Coverdale Bible says, “…and to anoynte the most holy one.”
      The 1568 Bishop’s Bible says, “…to annoynt the most holy.”
      The 1587 Geneva Bible says, “…and to anoynt the most Holy.”

      So the King James does not appear to be faulty.

      As for futurists, their misunderstanding is primarily based on Daniel 9:27.

      Keep learning and growing in The Way of Messiah,

  2. My dad and I both believed the same thing about daniels 70 weeks the whole rapture/ tribulation theology is quite deceitful…I do believe in an event ..the catching away of the bride but not in the way that the modern church teaches…

    • Thank you for your comment Brian! That’s wonderful that the Spirit of the Father has opened the eyes of you and your father! Indeed, Messiah will return for His saints after all prophecy is fulfilled. And there’s not much left on the timeline before that takes place.

      Here’s the link to a Revelation Fulfillment Summary that shows what’s been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years (most of it), where we’re at now on the timeline (in the sixth vial) and what will happen next as we await Messiah’s return.

      The explanations in the Revelation Timeline Decoded videos, audios and book prove it out.

      Keep learning and growing in The Way of Messiah!

  3. Very nice interpretation indeed..!! But one thing to ask, 70 weeks are in three categories 7×7, 62×7, 1×7 according to Daniel (NIV), right now 1×7 is not yet fulfilled ( tribulation period). My question is, if all the 6 events ( Dan 9:24) is already fulfilled accord to your explanation, what will be fulfilling in tribulation i.e the last 1×7 week?

    • The point of this study is that Messiah fulfilled what is described in Daniel 9:24; during the 70th week of Daniel. The 70th week of Daniel is when Messiah carried out His earthy ministry. It’s when He was anointed; when He healed people and raised them from the dead; when He died as the Passover Lamb to ratify the everlasting Covenant; when He rose again; when He ascended to heaven; and when He poured out the Spirit on Pentecost. Here is a study series that proves it out:

      The consequences of the Jews rejecting their promised Messiah and delivering him up to be killed, were poured out on that generation of wicked Jews; during the time of Jacob’s Trouble, from 66-70 A.D.; when Jerusalem and the temple were desolated, when 1.1 million Jews died in and around Jerusalem, and when the Jewish nation was ended.

      Revelation does not described a 7-year tribulation period. The 1,260 day time of tribulation that is described in Revelation, was fulfilled during 1,260 years, from 538-1798 A.D., during the reign of power of the Popes of Rome.

      This Revelation fulfillment summary study shows you all that’s been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years (most of it); where we are at now on the fulfillment timeline; and what will happen next as we await Messiah’s return.

      Keep learning and growing in The Way!

  4. We should appreciate the completeness of God Himself. In order to add to the spiritual God made the physical and God Himself became physical. Obviously God loves the physical.The Son and the Holy Spirit are manifestations of God. However, they are complete and perfect because they are God Himself. God made the angels first, then begot Jesus the bridge and then humans. God is expanding the universe with His creation.

  5. There is the teaching that Adam was perfect and brought sin into the world and Jesus was perfect and redeemed us. However, how could Jesus pay the price of all of our sins just because He is perfect and innocent? Didn’t He have to be God to pay this enormous cost?

    • Scripture clearly says that Adam sinned and therefore the whole human race was sinful from birth; and that Messiah was sinless, and was our Passover Lamb to pay for our sins.

    • Scripture is clear on the matter of the LORD’S Diety. Rightly dividing the Word of God answers all questions save for the mysteries as yet still veiled. As to the LORD Jesus’s Diety, a few examples:

      1. John 10:30 “The Father and I are one.”

      2. Recorded by Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles/Church, an Apostle recruited by the Resurrected LORD Jesus Christ, a unique distinction amongst several supernatural
      features of His ministry:

      Philippians 2:5-6 “You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to.”

      3. John 17:21 “That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.”

      4. Again, from the John, “The Apostle Whom Jesus Loved (Philos)”

      John 1:18 “No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.“

      5. Colossians 2:9-10 “For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily. and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.“

      6. John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word WAS God.“ (emphasis mine)

      7. And one final example of many more, for brevity’s sake:

      Colossians 1:15…”Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:”

      The LORD Jesus Christ is fully GOD; the Trinity a Mystery that our minds cannot yet, but one blessed day soon will finally grasp.

      I stumbled on this site last night; it’s 3:45 am now, early in the morning, but in 2024 when it is obvious the hour is late; questions about the Rapture, the Tribulation, and other eschatological matters appear soon to be answered. The only matter of importance is this: does a person have a relationship with Jesus Christ? Have you asked Him into your life, giving it over completely to Him? If not, I humbly urge you to do so with all haste, as the Dispensation of Grace is drawing to a close, and Revelation 6:9-11 is clear that becoming a Christian during the Tribulation will cost your life. Enoch was Raptured before the Flood; the Ark “Raptured” Noah and his family from the flood after God closed the door of the Ark.
      Moses delivered the Israelites from Pharoah when God closed the Red Sea on the unbelieving Egyptians, and so shall those whose sins have been removed by the Atoning Sacrifice of Jesus’s Crucifixion be taken away from an unbelieving world by a Just and Righteous God before the Tribulation meant to bring a saving knowledge to the blessed remnant of Israel. The LORD Jesus Christ WILL fulfill Daniel’s 70th Week, “sealing up the vision and the prophecy, and anointing the Most Holy”.

      May The LORD bless and keep all who believe, and His Peace be upon you.


  6. Thank you so much for your information. It has been a source of comfort to me as I study so many other teachings. So many conflicting opinions and it makes for doubt.
    But the majority sought to fulfill the law out of their flesh and they always failed, for “flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God” 1 Corinthians 15:50 this makes sense but there are people who should know better who think this means literally.
    Could the great falling away really be a good thing because people are coming out of false religions?

    • Yeah, I used to get confused and frustrated from all of the opinions on prophecy fulfillment. The ‘Falling Away’ of 2 Thessalonians 2 happened in the 4th century when Emperor Constantine and the Roman Bishops created the false Roman religion of Catholicism. Here is my study series and what they changed and how the church fell into apostasy.

  7. I hope that you are correct, that the time of tribulation is not seven or three and half years but a brief time. Then Jesus comes, He brings His Kingdom which is the New Jerusalem, Heaven and Earth are united as it was intended. With His coming the dead are risen and the millennial reign begins. Is that what you think?
    What you have written makes sense, shouldn’t all this make sense, since God is a God of order.

    • Yes Suzanne, that seems to be the sequence that Revelation lays out. It doesn’t really give a length to the time of tribulation in the end times. I think that things will happen quickly. Marantha Messiah!
