Prophecy

What is the 70 week prophecy of Daniel 9:24-27?

One of the most important ways to prove the Bible is true and that He can predict the future is to note His claim as follows: “I [am] God, and [there is] none else; [I am] God, and [there is] none like me,  declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times [the things] that are not [yet] done.“ Isa.46:9,10.
