    In his book Daniel in the Critics Den, Sir Robert Anderson provided a basic interpretation of that prophecy of the seventy weeks to rebut the arguments of a critic denying its Messianic nature The Coming Prince is a detailed exposition of his thesis in an effort to defend the authority of the scriptures by vindicating the accuracy of a controversial prophecy As a believer in the inspiration and authority of the scriptures, I admire his goals in expounding on the prophecy of the seventy weeks That said, I also recognize that different Christians who believe in the inerrancy of the scriptures also disagree on the meaning of this prophecy, with how they interpret the book of Revelation tending to be a deciding factor I am most of the way through a study of Daniel, to be followed up with the Thessalonian letters and Revelation One of my objectives of this extended study is to settle on an overall interpretive framework after carefully considering the different extant frameworks such as premillennialism, postmillennialism, amillennialism and preterist Since I yet have a long way to go in this effort, I will not critique the framework chosen by Mr Anderson but will comment on various details of his interpretation.Mr Anderson holds that the seven weeks and sixty two weeks extend from the issuing of an edict to rebuild Jerusalem to the cutting off of the Messiah, specifically the crucifixion of Jesus Regarding the edict to rebuild Jerusalem, there are several candidate dates The decree of Cyrus allowing the Jews to return to Israel and rebuild the temple 538 BC Artaxerxes commission to Ezra 458 BC The permission granted to Nehemiah to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem 445 BC Mr Anderson considers 445 BC to be the correct starting point for the seventy weeks He holds what is known as a chronological view, specifically that the seventy weeks, seventy sevens in the Hebrew, consists of 490 years What sets him apart is his assumption that the years have a length of 360 days based on twelve thirty day months per year, consistent with the forty two months of Rev 13 5 and the 1,260 days of Rev 12 6, which is also paralleled in Rev 11 2 3 One commentator I have been reading suggests that he was the first to propose the 360 day year This combination of the 445 BC starting date and the 360 day year makes sense as this is the only way to fit 483 years between any of the possible starting points and a reasonable date for the crucifixion.In support of his rejection of the decree of Cyrus as a starting point seventy weeks, he proposes two different seventy year periods as prophesied by Jeremiah Jer 25 11 29 10 Seventy years of serving the king of Babylon, with that clock starting in 605 BC, corresponding with the third year of Jehoiakim Seventy years of desolation of Jerusalem, with that clock starting with the city s destruction by Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BCHe bases the seventy years of servitude on Jeremiah s wording and the seventy years of desolation on Dan 9 2 in an effort to provide a theological explanation for the delays in fulfilling Cyrus decree to rebuild the temple as well as to argue that Cyrus decree is not a valid starting point I find his argument to be faulty because Jeremiah prophesied seventy years of serving the king of Babylon, coupled with the desolation of the land Jer 258 11 and ties the end of the seventy years with a return to Israel, which was accomplished as a result of Cyrus decree in 538 BC That said, the failure of this argument does not detract from his other reasoning for his chosen starting point.Mr Anderson likewise identifies several 490 year cycles within Israelite history in support of his contention that the 490 years represent actual chronological time From the entrance into Canaan 1586 5 B.C to the establishment of the kingdom under Saul 1096 B.C From the establishment of the kingdom 1096 B.C to the servitude to Babylon 606 B.C Perhaps the 1096 B.C date was considered valid in his day, but based on the conventional date for Solomon s accession to the throne, 970 B.C, and forty year reigns for both David and Saul, the establishment of the kingdom would have taken place in 1050 B.C Further, a few years ago, when I was studying Exodus, I looked at available information on Egyptian dynasties to better understand its timing Based on the statement in 1 Kings 6 1 that the exodus occurred 480 years prior to the fourth year of Solomon, I concluded that the exodus would have taken place around 1446 B.C during the eighteenth dynasty Interestingly enough, this date for the exodus would have placed Moses birth in the reign of Ahmose, who drove the Semitic Hyksos out of Egypt and slaughtered their remnants at Sharuhen in southern Canaan Given at least a century of Hyksos dominance in lower Egypt and northern upper Egypt, it would not be a stretch for the Theban Ahmose to sharply oppress Semitic populations such as the children of Israel and attempt to reduce their numbers by mandatory infanticide While this is not necessarily definitive, I find that this undercuts Mr Anderson s arguments regarding these two 490 year periods of time That said, I think this only shows his capacity for overstating his case for a chronological view It doesn t undermine his argument for 490 chronological years.Mr Anderson proposes two princes, the Messiah cut off at the end of the sixty two weeks and a second prince who makes a treaty for the final week and who violates it in the middle by suppressing the Jewish religion Because this didn t happen within seven years of the crucifixion, he proposes a gap between the end of the 69th week and the 70th week, with the 70th week set in the future as the tribulation period of Revelation Others hold that it is the Messiah who makes the treaty and ends sacrifice in the middle of the week by virtue of his crucifixion and fulfillment of the law, basing their argument on the Hebrew wording of the prophecy While I know some Hebrew, I don t believe I know enough to be dangerous at this point and plan to hold off on an assessment of these two positions until I am better able to check the assertion for myself Unlike many other premillennialists, he posits that the beasts of Daniel 7 represent nations of the tribulation period This contrasts with a commonly held view that the beasts parallel the different parts of the stature of Nebuchadnezzar s dream in Daniel 2 I find this speculation intriguing but unconvincing The parallelism view is based in part on the statue showing the dignity of a government as it appears to man and the beasts showing the often law of the jungle nature of government as it would appear to the God who delegated authority to human government for the sake of maintaining law and order and defending the weak from the strong I find this argument convincing.There is much to Mr Anderson s book than is discussed in this review Mr Anderson was an investigator for Scotland Yard, not a theologian, and I appreciate his view that scholars function as witnesses providing testimony for us to evaluate just as jurors do in court I consider his book as the testimony of an expert witness What is my verdict The jury is still out.

    A classic study of the prophet Daniel and the prophecies given to him An essential read for any serious Bible student Prophecies abound in promises which God designed to feed his people s faith and fire their zeal, and a special blessing rests on those who read, and hear, and cherish them A quote from the book that sums up the purpose and blessings of knowing God s perfectly laid out plans from the beginning For, the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets Amos 3 7

  3. says:

    So far an intense study of the book of Daniel and the coming of the anti christ The study is done very thoroughly by the ex head of the British Scotland Yard.

  4. says:

    This is a very helpful exposition of a challenging portion of scripture.

  5. says:

    Probably the best treatment of the book of Daniel ever A foundation for so much later study.

  6. says:

    Very good read Lots of information about the book of Daniel Surprising how this man from the late 19th century had the insight to write these things nearly 100 years before the rest of Christianity caught up.

    Contains the lengthy preface to the 10th edition in which he deals with critics of the book in the new tradition of German Biblical textual criticism He attempts to refute their claims that the book of Daniel, like many apocalyptic books was written backwards, that is, it was written in the time of the Maccabees by an author pretending to be Daniel How you judge the actual book depends on what you think about his refutation Points of interest Anderson s chronology takes into account that the ancient Hebrews used a lunar calendar, not one of 365 days, making the definition of year problematic Also of interest is his reconciliation of the differing dates of Christ s crucifixion in the synoptic Gospels vs the Gospel of John, a difference that Bart Ehrman uses to great effect in his classes and video lectures Finally, while no fan of Roman Catholicism, he ridicules those who equate the pope with the anti Christ.

    Kind of a wacky side venture because I wanted to understand about the book of Daniel I just figured out that the Bible prophesied the course of history of the various kingdoms 500 BC Romans, including such details as how Alexander the Great would die, who would take over and who would send their daughter to marry the Egyptians in failed political strategy she fell in love Hmmph Quite compelling I would like to hear what skeptics have to say about this

    Sir Robert Anderson was the chief inspector for Scotland Yard He was greatly respected for his skill as an investigator When Anderson wasn t writing on subjects related to crime, he wrote books on Christian prophecy He helped establish the fact that 69 of Daniel s 70 weeks have now transpired, and that the tribulation will be the 70th week Sir Robert Anderson s book, The Coming Prince, has become a foundational resource for all dispensationalists

    InterestingWell researched and written Author obviously is passionate about the subject and yet is objective 4 stars only due to some outdated information, unavoidable due to when written.
