John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

What Problems Does This Chart Give You?

Recommended Posts

The chart shows the 70th week of Daniel 9 immediately following the 69th.  The prophecy describes the destruction of Jerusalem and of the temple as taking place after the 69th week and before the 70th.  The one who makes the covenant is the coming prince referred to in verse 26.  He will make a seven year covenant with the Jews which enables them to rebuild their temple and resume making sacrifices.  In the middle of the covenant period he will enter the temple and demand that he be worshipped.  Paul speaks of this event in 2 Thessalonians 2:3,4.

 

That day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.

Yes, there are two different ways of interpreting what happens when.

However, there is no mention of a covenant being made by the prince that shall come and destroy the city and the sanctuary.

It is true that the temple was built over a 49 year period (7 weeks) and then after threescore (60) and two weeks (meaning 434 years) Messiah was cut off during a final 7 year period during which the covenant made with Abraham was confirmed, and in the midst of this week the crucifixion took place making any further need for sacrifice and oblation unnecessary, thus fulfilling prophecy.

It is also true that the overspreading of abominations in the form of the Roman army under Titus, made the city of Jerusalem, and the sanctuary desolate in 70 AD, also fulfilling prophecy. 

 

Dan 9:24-27
(24)  Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
(25)  Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
(26)  And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
(27)  And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

 

Note usage of the term "all the world":

Luk 2:1
(1)  In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered.
