Daniel’s Seventy Weeks – Daniel 9:24-27
Below you will find a brief clarification of the calculations regarding Daniel’s Seventy Weeks.
Daniel 9:27 – And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one
week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice

THE 483 YEARS IN THE JEWISH AND GREGORIAN CALENDERS
Jewish Calender Gregorian Calender
(360 days per year) (365 days per year)
(7 x 7) + (62 x 7) years= 483 444 B.C. to A.D. 33 = 476 years
483 years 476 years
x 360 days x 365 days
173,880 days + 116 days in leap years
+ 24 days (March 5- March 30) 173,880 days
* See comments on Daniel 9:27b for confirmation of this 360-day year.
+ Since only one year expired between 1 B.C. and A.D. 1 the total is 476, not 477.
! A total of 476 years divided by four (a leap year every four
years) gives 119 additional days. But three must be substracted
from 119 because centennial year are not leap years, though every 400th year is a leap year.
