The 70th Week Of Daniel 'a Covenant With Many'

Scripture clearly says that He was cut off after 62 weeks. If the 7 weeks comes before the 62 then you have a total of 69 and it says He was cut off AFTER that- not during the 62nd week. If the 7 weeks is not part of the equation then only sixty two weeks expired leaving a total of 7 weeks or 49 years left. No matter how you try to explain it, your math doesn't fit the text.

In addition- it also states very clearly that the 7 weeks and 62 weeks will take place during the rebuilding of Jerusalem (before the messiah):

Daniel nine:
Know therefore and understand, [that] from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince [shall be] seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof [shall be] with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

Don't you find it just a little more than coincidence that a 'covenant was confirmed' by Jesus, for many, His ministry happened to be 3 1/2 years long ( 3 1/2 years is 'the middle of a week') and Daniel just happens to prophesy of exactly the same thing? Sorry-that is not coincidence...the covenant was fulfilled just exactly as scripture says it would be. The fuzzy math and 'history' books that you guys use to make your theory work just don't line up with scriptures. Hey Mod- as long as there are no 'foreheads being damaged' how about you let us keep discussing this heh?

Clearly you misunderstand scripture.

Jesus is not the one making any such covenant.
