Big Idea/Theme: God’s Word is an expression of His love for His people. Application/Aim: Embrace the love of God for His people by trusting in Jesus Christ. (1) God’s Word Points Us to His Love for Us in Jesus Christ (Daniel 9:20-23) (2) God’s Promises Are Fulfilled in Jesus Christ (Daniel 9:24) (A) First description of the 70 weeks in v. 24: 6 promises to be accomplished (B) Second description of the 70 weeks in vv. 25-27: Historical things that will happen. (3) History Points to Jesus Christ (Daniel 25-27) (A) 70 Weeks, Part 1: 7 Weeks – rebuilding of Jerusalem & coming of anointed one (B) 70 Weeks, Part 2: 62 Weeks – continued rebuilding of Jerusalem in “troubled time” (C) 70 Weeks, Part 3: 1 Week – anointed one cut off forging a covenant, a prince’s people will destroy Jerusalem. – Last week is described twice. Jesus is the fulfillment of this text. He fulfills both what was to be accomplished in the 70 weeks, and he fulfills the historical contours of what would happen in the 70 weeks. The way that God answers Daniel’s prayers for the forgiveness of the sins of God’s people is by helping him to forward to the good news of a covenant that would be forged in a “messiah” that would be cut of – namely, Jesus Christ (Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 10:1-14).
