Unreported News, Commentary, Resources and Discussion of Bible Prophecy
Does you belief that the goals have not been accomplished result in your belief the 70 weeks are incomplete?
Does your belief the 70 weeks are not yet completed mean some goals must therefore be outstanding?
Do the two beliefs kind of work together to reinforce one another?
My view of the 70 weeks is they are contiguous, the second week right after the first, the 55th right after 54th, the 70th coming right after 69th. Daniel 9:24 says messiah was cut-off after the 7 and 62 or after the 69th week. The only week left of the 70 weeks in which he could have been crucified, resurrected, spent 40 days, ascended, etc., is the 70th week. In Daniel 9:24-26, all 70 weeks are mentioned, the first 7 and 62 are mentioned explicitly, the 70th implicitly. I do not believe the one week in Daniel 9:27 is part of the 70 weeks but is a prophecy about the consequences of Christ being crucified during the 70 weeks. The parable of the tenants describes two main events, the coming of the Son, the owner of the vineyard destroying the tenants for killing the Son. The one week of Daniel 9:27 describes the the First Jewish Roman War, in which the owner of the vineyard destroyed the temple and killed the tenants; the war lasted 7 years (one week).
So we have a list of goals in Daniel 9:24 which are to accomplished during the 70 weeks. If you examine those goals, you will discover that Christ's crucifixion, resurrection, and possibly His accession are necessary for those goals to be completed. This means the crucifixion and resurrection had to have happened during the 70 weeks. They did not happen during the first 6 and 62 weeks as the Messiah was cut-off after those weeks per verse 26. The only week left for these events, which prophecy says must be accomplished during the 70 weeks, is the week immediately following the 69th week, that is the 70th week.
As I said in my opening post, I do not want to debate this in this thread. But it might be helpful to have this explanation here for you and other readers.
Because I believe the 70 weeks are complete, I also believe the goals of verse 24 must therefore have been accomplished.
This study is about the definition of the goals in Daniel 9:24. If the 70 weeks are indeed completed, then the definition of those goals must reflect those goals having been completed instead of one or more goals remaining outstanding.

I thought this was common knowledge among most Christians, the coming 70th week of Daniel being the last week of this Age, the time of the 7 Seals, the AOD at the midpoint and the 7 Trumpet and 7 bowl judgements, Anti-Christ reign, 2 witnesses, etc.
70th week has not yet come ! It will start when the 1st Seal is opened and when a covenant of many is confirmed by the Anti-Christ.
I do not have a position on that.

When prophesy is fulfilled, I'd like to see the history and timespan to understand the fulfillment ....
In both cases it is during the 70th week which is all the detail scripture provides us with without interpretation.
