“The purpose of the seventy-weeks prophecy, outlined in Daniel 9:24, was to secure that ultimate salvation, that release, redemption, and restoration of which the jubilee year [Leviticus 25:8-55] was a type or symbolic prefigurement. When Jesus declares that in himself the jubilee of God has come he is saying, in effect, that the seventy weeks of Daniel have reached their climax. The new age of jubilee, of which all previous jubilees were prefigurements, has now dawned in the person and ministry of Jesus. THE GOAL OF THE SEVENTY-WEEKS PROPHECY IS THE CONSUMMATE JUBILARY SALVATION OF GOD!” (Kingdom Come, p. 90)
In Kingdom Come: The Amillennial Alternative, Sam Storms relates how he used to be a Premillennial Dispensationist and his eventual journey away from it. So Storms know a thing or two about the crucial importance of Daniel 9:24-27 of Premillennial Dispensationalists: Were it to be discovered that Daniel 9 does not, in fact, teach any such thing [that is, Dispensationalists interpretation leading to Rapture, 7-year period of Great Tribulation], that would strike a severe, if not mortal, blow to the entire dispensational scenario.
Now Sam Storms reached his conclusions about Daniel 9:24-27 by relying primarily on letting Scripture interpret Scripture and the strengths of covenant theology (Daniel 9:4).
