The 69 weeks (7+62) is 483
days/years (Ezek.4:6; Num.14:34) or
(483x360÷365) = 476 years
to solar calendar.
In this year Jesus was baptized and became the Messiah. Bible said, that “In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar” (Luke 3:1) John the Baptist began to preach a baptism of repentance for remissions of sins (3:3). Tiberius became the Caesar (king) in 14AD and his 15th year was 29AD. That means Jesus could be baptized not earlier than 29AD and perhaps even later than 29AD. Thus, John the Baptist was preaching about the Messiah for two years before Jesus came to him to be baptized in 31AD. See When Jesus was born?
In the book of the prophet Zechariah (648 years prior to Jesus) 11: 12,13 is told: « …And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD».
with the evidence of Matthew (27: 5,6,7). Jude has regretted about what he had
done and decided to return
30 damned pieces of
silver, for which
he had betrayed Jesus «And he cast down the
pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. And
the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put
them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood. And they took counsel,
and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in».
12: 10 «...they shall look upon
me whom they have pierced»;
Сompare with John 19:34 «But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water».
(460 year BC) 22:16-19 «
assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my
feet…they look and stare upon me. They
part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture»; The pierced hands and feet obviously point to specific form of punishment:
crucifixion – the execution introduced by the Romans approximately in 4,5
centuries after the Psalms had been written.
Compare also with: Luke.23:35 «And
the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him»;
Mat.27:35 «They parted my
garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots
the Bible Jesus is called the Passover lamb slaughtered for sins of the world.
The charter of Passover runs: «They
shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor
break any bone of it:»
Jesus was crucified in Passover: «The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath day, (for that Sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs» (John 19:31-33).
(732 year BC) 53:9 «And he made
his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because
he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth».
was crucified together with criminals, and in the book of
Matthew (ch.27) we read, that the rich man by name Joseph had begged the body of Jesus for the burial, and Jesus was buried in a coffin of that
Isaiah. 9:6, 42:1-7, the whole chapter 53 contains predictions about Jesus .
the prophets of antiquity long before the birth of Jesus spoke, that He would
born by a virgin in Bethlehem,
that he would be baptized in 31AD, and that He is God.
declared that He was God and called the Almighty as My Father when the
Jews could call God either as «Our Father», or as «the Heavenly Father». It has the
main reason for persecutions
of Jesus and His disciples.
