There is evidence some people overlook, or outright repudiate, nevertheless, it’s there—a prophetic time period referred to at Daniel 9:24-27. During that time Jerusalem would be rebuilt and Messiah would appear and then be cut off. Both history and the Bible support what happened.
Going back in time in the first year of King Darius the Mede, the prophet Daniel discerned from the books (Jeremiah) that the time for the release of the Jews from Babylon and their return to Jerusalem was near. Daniel then diligently sought Jehovah in prayer. While Daniel was praying, Jehovah sent his angel Gabriel with a prophecy that nearly all Bible commentators accept as Messianic.
Daniel’s answer to his prayer involves another Scripture. If you count the number of years from when that prophecy starts, and when the Messiah appears, you will come up with 29 C. E. That’s when Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist at the Jordan River, and John saw visible evidence that God had anointed him as the Messiah. Interestingly, 29 C. E. is an absolute date (a date that both history, and the Bible agree on.)
“Now when all the people were baptized, Jesus also was baptized and, as he was praying, the heaven was opened up 22 and the holy spirit in bodily shape like a dove came down upon him, and a voice came out of heaven: “You are my Son, the beloved; I have approved you.” (Luke 3:21-22)
