You should know and understand that from the issuing of the word to restore and to rebuild Jerusalem until Mes·siʹah the Leader there will be 7 weeks, also 62 weeks… (Daniel 9:25).

Did you ever think about how time was split in half by the birth of Jesus? Every date in the world is either Before the Common Era (BCE) or Common Era (CE), Before Christ (BC) or After Christ (AC). Christ split time in half

Today’s scripture comes from a prophecy given to Daniel about 500 years before Jesus was born. It says that the from the time that Nehamiah and the Jews are given permission to rebuild the temple which the Babylonian’s destroyed, it would be 69 (7+62) weeks of years. A week is 7 days.  So 7 days x 69 weeks equals 483.  Change 483 into years and we now know when Jesus would be start his ministry.

King Artaxerxesv gave Nehemiah permission to rebuild the temple in the 20th year of his reign, or 455BCE. 455BCE plus 483 years is 29CE.

Simple math then tells us the exact time of the Messiah. It points to 29CE. This was when Jesus was baptized and started his 3.5-year ministry. This is why Herod was waiting for the Messiah so he could kill him.  This is why the disciples we waiting for a messiah. This is why Simeon was waiting to see the Anointed one before dying.
