Objection: “Daniel 9:24 was clearly not fulfilled by Jesus.”
by Dr. Michael Brown
Answer: “Since Daniel 9:24-27 speaks of events that must be fulfilled before the destruction of the Second Temple (which took place in 70 CE), the question that must be asked is this: If Jesus did not fulfill Daniel 9:24, who did? Who was it that ushered in everlasting righteousness and made atonement for iniquity before 70 CE if not Jesus the Messiah? In reality, if he did not fulfill Daniel 9:24, then no one fulfilled it and the prophecies of Daniel cannot be trusted.’” (See Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus, vol. 3, pp. 92-100.)
