that we explored previously:(KJV)
Daniel 12:11: And from the time [that] the daily [sacrifice] shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, [there shall be] a thousand two hundred and ninety days.(Tanach)
Daniel 12:11 And from the time the daily sacrifice was removed and the silent abomination placed, is one thousand, two hundred, and ninety.Sacrifices were suspended three times in the Old Testament: once before Daniel (Chronicles 28:24-25), once during the Babylonian captivity in 583 BC (
Chronicles 36:19 and Ezra 3:6), and once, about four hundred years later, by the Greek king Antiochus Epiphanies. Let's try the 583 date considering that the angel Gabriel may have had Daniel write about the abolition of sacrifices with which he was directly familiar.One area of scripture that may help us understand
Old Testament - day = year "language" is suggested in Genesis' account of the flood as 30 day months pointing to a 360 day prophetic year, each year being equal to .9857 of a solar year (360 divided by 365.24) of or our modern historical record. So as per our verse: 1290 X .9857 = 1271.5 solar years. Since the
583 dating of the sacrifices being removed is BC, we have to subtract it from 1271.5 to calculate our AD date. What year do we arrive at when we subtract 583 from 1271.5? |
