Daniel's Math proves Jesus is Messiah. Irrefutable proof.
Daniel 9:25-26 : "Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined."
Daniel said "So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; it will be built again...Then after sixty-two groups of seven, the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing." This prophecy was prophesied in about 538bc and that the 62 weeks started when the temple was commanded to be rebuilt (which took place in 445 b.c.). That would mean that the Messiah would be "cut off" 483 years after 445 b.c. which would make his time of being cut off in 38 AD. The only one who claimed to be the Messiah at this time, and died for his claim, was Jesus .Josephus says that Jesus was crucified by the Romans in the 30's.
The only option left for those who deny Jesus was Messiah is to deny he ever existed.... Good luck with that!
There is no honest way around this prophecy, and this prediction is a great guarantee that Jesus was indeed the Messiah who was "cut off".
