I felt compelled to share this with you!

In response to my blog post, Missionary Mathematics, one of the commenters of RPP (David Cook/Advent of Messiah) stated:

“Yash, it is pretty much historically accepted that Yeshua was crucified “cut off” or died around 30-33 A.D. depending on where you set His birth, around 5-2 B.C. and that the Roman army marched in and destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 A.D., if you listen to Tovia Singer on his talk on Daniel 9 he states this. Yash, I think your missing my point though. The specifics of the 70 weeks are important. But step back from the specifics of trying to figure out when to begin the 69 weeks 483 years. Look at a more general observation from the scriptures. One Gabriel tells Daniel several very important things for the Jewish People will transpire during these 70 weeks. One of those important things is that sin will be atoned for we read in verse Dan 9:24. That the “Anointed One” (Messiah) will come and be “cut off” and have nothing, then afterwards “The people of the ruler who will come (the Romans) will destroy the city and the sanctuary.” Which we know that happened in 70 A.D. So, therefore Messiah (“Anointed One”) will come and be “cut off” and then afterwards (about 40 years later) the Romans will come and destroy the city and the Temple in 70 A.D. Messiah must come, atone for wickedness and be cut off before 70 A.D. Yeshua did come and was “cut off” crucified and died in 30 A.D. which precedes the destruction of Jerusalem and the Second Temple.”

Isn’t this amazing? (But unsurprising). The missionaries calculations don’t make any sense, so what is their solution? Step away from the text! Ignore the specifics.

This is a prime example of ignoring what the Bible actually says in an attempt to plug your own beliefs in! That, dear reader, is not Truth!
