It just doesn't fit the description of that period of time.
What would the week of years prior to the Birth of Christ represent?
Or what would the 7 weeks of years at the start of that time refer to?
I see what you are saying, but only the end point fits your explanation.

505 B.C. does not seem to be a viable date for the return from the
Babylonian captivity.

Ron

I would love to join in this one but could you possibly give me the link the the Catholic bible you are using. I was looking for one online yesterday but could only find a link which uses 50 bibles- not one of them catholic.

Thanks

Thanks Ron.

Daniel 14

-God honours his promise to care for the needs of all who trust in him. (Every hair on our heads are counted)
-God sees all, knows all and will ensure Justice is served in this life aswell as the next and he needs us to remain close to him in order that he may use us as vessels of his divine wisdom.
-He uses his people to help and support each other to have his will done.

I know this is not any great theology. I apologise but this scripture has come alive to me today in the ways I have mentioned above. Its what I got out of it.

I dont know what planet I am on but I am so sorry. I thought this bible lesson had only just started and now its actually finished.

I would really enjoy this kind of teaching though Ron to work through the bible. I have got into St. Paul in a big way. He is a bit scary at times but I love him to bits.

My tendency would have been toward only faithfulness and the refusal to eat the king's food. ...
And, sadly, my tendency would be to comply and tell myself that there was no recourse. The beauty of Daniel as revealed in this Scripture is that all through his challenges and trials, his wisdom from God is also seasoned with mildness and love--he appeals to, and brings out, the best in people such as the eunuch who had power over the young men. Daniel was not only holy, strong in faith, in wisdom and purity--he was also shining with love, he was a beloved man reaching the kernel of goodness and mercy even in his captors. Only the envious shamans and sorcerers of Babylon hated him. From the king's steward to the king himself, found themselves honoring and cherishing this beloved person.

yes, it is difficult to love one's oppressors. Daniel's example is admirable.

I'm looking forward for more interpretations, in Sacred Scriptures, such as this one! I've learn a lot from it.
Thank you.
