ARE PEOPLE AWARE THAT VERSE 26 AND VERSE 27 OF DANIEL 9 OVERLAP? Many are still confused about the 70 weeks of Daniel 9. They believe the lie that there is a gap of 2000 years between verse 26 and 27. However Daniel never even hinted that there is such a thing. Why would God have a gap, if Christ said on the cross, “It is finished”, John [19:28](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0IiHupeUeKU&t=1168s)-30. The only reason God gave the Jews an extra 70 weeks is not for their sake, but to fulfill the promise he made to Abraham, that a seed of his will be Messiah. God already divorced the kingdom of Israel and Judah and send them into exile, Jeremiah 3:6-10, Isaiah 50:1. But in order to fulfill prophecy the Jews had to return to the land of Judah so Messiah would be born there.
