Timeline Prophecies
Prophecy of 70 Weeks Dt. 9:25-27 Mt. 1:27 The Messiah was prophesied to arrive 49 weeks of years after the rebuilding of the wall in Jerusalem, which is known from archaeology to be 445 B.C., given Neh. 2:1. Jewish years were 360 days, so 483 * (360/365) = 476.38 years after 445 B.C., or approximately 31 A.D. when the Messiah was to come. Furthermore, this was to occur before the destruction of the Jewish temple and ending of the sacrifices, per Dt. 9:26-27, fulfilled by Nero's destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. The book of Daniel is preserved through the Dead Sea Scrolls in 4QDanb (125 B.C.) and 4QDanc (50 B.C.).
