Is The Messiah Prophesied

Is the Messiah the prince prophesied in Daniel 9:25, 26 Jesus Christ or some false messiah? If false, then isn't Daniel a false prophet. If Jesus, then the day = year principle of prophetic interpretation is also true.

Dan9:24 "Seventy weeks determined upon thy people..to make an end of sins..make reconciliation for iniquity..to seal up the vision and prophecy and anoint the MOST HOLY" Dan9:25 "from the going forth of the commandment to restore and build Jerusalem unto MESSIAH the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks" That Command (Ezra7:7) was given in 457BC

457BC + (69x7)= 27AD, Jesus Annointed (Baptized). Priests Annointed at 30, therefore Jesus born around 3 BC.

Jesus didn't seem to think Daniel was a false prophet, he quoted him in Matthew 24.
---Pharisee on 1/10/08


"Cursed is the ground for thy sake." God is careful never to put a curse on Adam. He curses the Serpent, Satan, and the Soul, But not mankind. The reason, ofcourse, is that He desired to redeem man and, therefore, would not curse that which He planned to later save. Even so, the unsaved man can expect nothing good in this life apart from Christ. [GEN. 3-17]

I agree Pharisee. Jesus referenced the prophecies of The Book of Daniel as being "spoken by Daniel the prophet" (Mat. 24:15; Mk. 13:14). Unlike notlaw's pseudo-statements, Jesus' testimony isn't simply that the book was named after Daniel, but that its prophecies were spoken by him.

Who should we believe. Jesus or outlaw? There's no doubt in my mind who's telling the truth! (Jn. 14:6)

And Daniel quotes Baruch as scripture, describing it as such. Of course, the NT quotes more than just what is in scripture and also quotes from oral tradition. Perhaps you should consider removing Daniel just to be safe. Or you can add Baruch.

greetings.To give conclusion to the question several questions surface.Did Jesus' tour of ministry fit the expected prophecy the Jews believed the Messiah would be(the one who broke their chains of bond to Ceaser)?Is Messiah a term that may be applied to prophets,etc.(John the Baptist was asked if he was the Messiah).Are the Prince and prince two seperate persons?Is a comma missing between Messiah and Prince?Is the Messiah the Prince?Who is Michael?

I believe it to be Jesus and it seems that the prophecy was perfectly fulfilled. As for the day=a year principle I don't see any instruction for it to be that way everywhere else. Making a doctrine out of this example is not what we are told to do.

Jesus Christ IS the Messiah, and Daniel is NOT a false prophet.

The book of Daniel was written by an unknown author some time after the Syrian King Antiochus Epiphanes 167-164 concord Jerusalem and should be considered pseudopigraphia. There is significant diversion of the text between Greek and Hebrew - Aramaic versions.

daniel 9:25 is talking about both messiah and the temple. Verse 26 talks about messiah up to the point he is cut off, then switches over to say that the people of the prince to come(the prince to come is not the messiah). verse 27 is talking about the false one. Daniel is NOT a false prophet it just means you need to stop trying to read everything through christian eyes, it flaws your vision. The day = year analogy is wrong in this context, because it is referencing evening/morning sacrifices.
