The very brief but famous prophecy of the seventy weeks, recorded in Daniel 9:24-27, has always been a focus of interest to interpreters of the Word, regardless of their theological bias. Probably no single prophetic utterance is more crucial in the fields of biblical interpretation, apologetics, and eschatology.The first sixty-nine weeks and the coming of the Messianic PrinceThe parenthesis of time between the sixty-ninth and seventieth weeksThe seventieth week and the coming of the Roman Prince
A proper understanding of the seventy weeks of Daniel not only safeguards the Christian against the elaborate guess-work of those who persist in setting dates for the Lord's return, but also furnishes the infallible key to the real chronology of all New Testament prophecy.
In this short but important work, McClain introduces the first 69 weeks and answers questions such as "What is the measure of time indicated by the 'weeks' of this prophecy?" Continuing with a discussion of the parenthesis of time between the 69th and the 70th weeks, he concludes with an exposition of the 70th week.
