As I understand the "Seventy Weeks" spoken of in Daniel 9:24-27 , it really is a prophecy concerning the probation of Isreal. "Seventy weeks ['weeks of years' RSV] are determined upon thy people ... to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins" (v. 24). God was going to allow Daniel's people seventy weeks to see how they would treat the Messiah when He appeared. The seventy weeks are prophetic time, and each day represents a literal year (Ezekiel 4:6). So the seventy weeks would be a literal period of 490 years, after which the Israelites would no longer be God's people. They would be rejected as a nation because of their rejection of the Messiah.
I'm wanting to better understand (strictly from Scripture, please) other's views on this.
