Daniel 9:27 and the Preterists

    I realize that the debate over the antecedent of "he" has raged for centuries, which would, I maintain, be idiocy were it not for the theological implications. I believe that the preterists were, on this occasion, very correct, but, with their assumption that Daniel's seventieth week ended three and a half years later, were very incorrect. Please read my blog, at http://www.shopeshop.org/split70th.htm ,before you comment.

    With all due respect Billy, I have to disagree with you on the "HE" in Daniel 9:27.

    In the Hebrew the pronoun "HE" in verse 27 refers back to its nearest antecedent which is ..."the prince that shall come", or in other words the Antichrist which is recorded in verse #26.

    That is not my opinion or commentary but is however Hebrew grammar which is not open for interpretation and I do not offer any. In other words, it is what it is because grammar dictates that it can not be anything else.

    The beginning then of the future 70th week (7 years) takes place when that A/C makes a peace agreement with the Jews or that 7 year time frame.

    I appreciate your comment, Major1, but I find it to be nothing more than what I was taught for many, many years. I, too, was taught that you can't disagree with the laws of grammar. As I point out in my blog, if this were not God's Word, that "of the prince that shall come" could just as well have been "of West Virginia." This is an absurdity which no reference to grammatical laws can erase. The antecedent must be found in the subjects of the compound sentences involved. These are "Messiah," "people," "end," and "desolations."
