Both Moses and Jesus:

1)       were Israelites (Ex. 2:1-10; Lk. 3:23-34);

2)       left Egypt to perform God’s work (Heb. 11:27; Matt. 2:15);

3)       forsook great wealth to share the poverty of their people (Heb. 11:25-26; 2 Cor. 8:9);

4)       knew the Lord face to face (Num. 12:6-8; Deut. 34:10; Jn. 16:19, 28-30; 17:5; 1:1-2, 14-17);

5)       did great signs and wonders (Deut. 34:10-12; Jn. 6:2; 20:30-31);

6)       had their lives threatened in early infancy (Ex. 1:15-16; 2:2-3; Matt. 2:12-16)

 

Dan. 9:25-26 (Lk. 19:35-40 with Zech. 9:9)

[70 “weeks” (Heb. “shabua”) – sevens; a period of seven; heptad (days, years) – Lev. 25:8; Gen. 29:27].

[King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon (Dan. 1:1) reigned from 605 – 562 B.C. – New Bible Dictionary, p. 873. The book of Daniel was written some time in the 500’s B.C. – The Bible Knowledge Commentary, Old Testament, p. 1324.].

[Artaxerxes reigned from 464 – 424 B.C. The month of Nisan is from mid-March to mid-April – New Bible Dictionary, p. 89, 177.].

The period “from the commandment to restore and to rebuild Jerusalem” to “Messiah the Prince”, totals a period of 483 years. Sir Robert Anderson in his book The Coming Prince figured it out, and gave the world his findings:

He starts with March 14, 444 BC, the date of the commandment (by Artaxerxes, king of Persia – see Neh. 2:1-8) to restore and rebuild Jerusalem; and he ends the period with Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem (which he believes was the official presentation of Messiah as “Prince” to Israel). After careful investigation and consultation with noted astronomers, he gives these startling findings:  From 444 BC to 32 AD is 476 years; 476 x 365 is 173,740 days; from March 14 to April 6 (the day of Christ’s triumphal entry) is 24 days; add 116 days for leap years, and you get a total of 173,880 days. Since the “prophetic year” of the Bible is always 360 days, the 69 “sevens” of this prophecy in Daniel (69 weeks of years x 7 years x 360 days) is 173,880 days! And so, the time given by Daniel from the “commandment to restore and build Jerusalem” to “Messiah the Prince” comes out perfectly – to the very day!
