One must bear in mind that although the prophecy is calculated in days for the purpose of determining the end-date of the first sixty-nine weeks, it was given in integer units; thus the solution to the endpoint of the sixty-ninth week is the number of days in the integer number of solar years for the 69 weeks. When calculated this way the result is precisely the number of days between Nisan 1, B.
The simplest method of calculating the end-date of the sixty-ninth week is to determine the Julian Day Number JND of the starting point Nisan 1, B. When done this way the calculation is simple, precise, and requires no adjustments of any kind, only a recognition that the data was given in whole numbers and the solution lies in advancing from the start-date exactly solar years. For reasons he does not explain, Hoehner inserts a one day break between John and where no break is indicated in the biblical text.
The effect of this mistake is that all of the events he lists for Sunday through Wednesday are off by one day. However, without stating any justification Hoehner begins the next day Sunday at John , where no break is indicated, placing the gathering of Jews in Bethany on Sunday instead of Saturday.
This critical error advances the remainder of the week, through Wednesday, by one day. How do we know this? Jesus was crucified on a Friday the day before the Sabbath, cf. Mk and Lk.
Ephesians: An Exegetical Commentary
Taulkis This is the most massive commentary—perhaps in existence?! Hoehner was a longtime Accordance user, and as he mentions in his preface, Accordance Bible Software was instrumental in the development of his Ephesians commentary. The book is set up to deal with each verse, and sometime harod, individually, and in detail. Ships from and sold by Amazon.
