So I watched the video, keeping an old testament next to me and checking the sources, and I didn't understand a few things, perhaps you could enlighten me: 1. I'm confused as to where this video's creator got the idea that the announcement of the return to and rebuilding of Jerusalem was by Artaxerxes in 445 bc. A simple search through the sources in Ezra & Nehemiah show that the announcement was made by Cyrus The Great, while Artaxerxes was a later king that simply gave Ezra and Nehemiah permission to go to Jerusalem. What history tells us is that the first announcement was made not in 445 but in 538. The video's creator bases much of his calculations upon the year 445. I also didn't understand why he claims the 490 years begin in Nehemiah 2, 1-8. Where does it make reference to that? He claims this was when Nehemiah was given permission to go rebuild Jerusalem. However, the Jews already got permission for that in the time of Cyrus, in Ezra, ch. 1. He claims that between the 69th set of years and the 70th set of years there will be a long break (continuing to thus day, a period of nearly 2000 years), yet doesn't bring a source for this, certainly not from the old testament. If the first 69 sets were one after the next, why should there be a 2000 year break before the last set? He also claims that "the annoited one" (=literal translation of the word Messiah) is Jesus. Who's to say that? If anything, it would make more sense to refer to the verse in Isaiah 45, 1, where Cyrus The Great is mentioned by name and called the messiah. Meaning this isn't a reference to the messiah of the end of days, but to the messiah that decreed the building of the second temple, as we're talking here in Daniel of the building of the second Temple.
