Note: The famous "70 Weeks of Daniel" prophesy in the Old Testament passage of Daniel 9:24-27 has
been explained and gives the basis for Jesus Christ's statements that they should have known the exact day of his coming.
37 And when he was come nigh, even now at the
descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for
all the mighty works that they had seen;
Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.
39 And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude
said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.
40 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the
stones would immediately cry out.
when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,
42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day,
the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.
43 For the days shall come upon thee, that thine
enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,
44 And shall lay thee even with the ground, and
thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time
of thy visitation.
he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought;
46 Saying unto them, It is written, My house is
the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.
47 And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the
people sought to destroy him,
could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.
