Daniel refers to the events of 70 AD.
“And after the sixty-two weeks
Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself;
And the people of the prince who is to come
Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.
The end of it shall be with a flood,
And till the end of the war desolations are determined.
Jesus refers to Daniel in the Olivet Discourse, and directs the reader to understand.
Yes, Jesus refers to Daniel in the Olivet Discourse, and indeed he directs the reader to understand. BUT, when Jesus referred to Daniel in the Olivet Discourse, He WAS NOT referencing Dan 9:27 and the destruction of the city and the sanctuary. He referenced that while still upon the temple mound.
No. In the Olivet Discourse, Jesus refers to the abomination that makes desolated. That references something completely different from the book of Daniel.
But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand
Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
Like you keep saying JLB. Jesus did NOT mention the destruction of the temple in the Olivet Discourse. What He talked about on the Mt of Olives was the abomination that makes desolate. The abomination that makes desolate IS NOT the destruction of the temple.
