Notes

During Jesus' lifetime the authority to administer capitol punishment was taken away from Jewish rule by the Romans. For this reason the Jewish religious leaders appealed to Pilate to sentence Jesus to death, since they no longer had the authority. This authority is embodied in the word "sceptre" (a symbol of the right to rule) in Genesis 49:10.

The Messiah would be announced to his people 483 years, to the exact day, after the decree to rebuild the city of Jerusalem.

" 12 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord."

Notes

Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem occured 173,880 days (483 X the Hebrew 360 day year) after Artaxerxes' decree was given in 445 B.C. (as recorded in Nehemiah 2:1-20) to rebuild Jerusalem. This was the first time that Jesus allowed anyone to proclaim him as "King." Note, the Hebrew word for "week" is "shavua" and literally means "seven." Therefore, in Hebrew, the idea of 70 weeks is "seventy sevens." The meaning of the word "weeks" was used in reference to both days and years.

The Messiah would be killed before the destruction of the temple.

Notes

Jerusalem and the temple were destroyed by the Roman general Titus in A.D. 70, thirty-eight years after Jesus Christ was crucified. Jesus foretold of the destruction of the temple as recorded in Matthew 24:1-2. Over one million Jews were killed during the A.D. 70 invasion of Jerusalem.
