Dave: Prophecy could be a powerful demonstration of a religious truth or falsehood.
Jeff: And did you know that Daniel 9:20-27 predicts the exact year of the Messiah’s death?
Dave: The prediction talks about seven sevens.
Jeff: Which would be 49 years
Dave: and it speaks about 62 sevens
Jeff: which would be 434 years
Dave: Add that up and we find that Daniel predicts there will be 483 until the messiah dies after the decree to rebuild the Jewish temple.
Jeff: and when was that decree given?
Dave: Right around 444 or 445 B.C.
Jeff: And guess how many years it was until Jesus was actually crucified.
Dave: I’m guessing one year
Jeff: Ah! No! Daniel predicted it would be 483 years and…
Dave: Right it was 483 years until Christ was crucified!
Jeff: And that was written hundreds of years before jesus was even born
Dave: How could someone predict the exact year so far in advance unless they were told by God?
Jeff: Right! This is specific, told far into the future AND deals with unlikely events!
