  Lysias - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
This date was evidently obtained by reckoning back from the foundation of Thurii (444 BC), since there was a tradition that Lysias had gone thither at the age of fifteen.
Modern critics would place his birth later, between 444 and 436 BC, because, in Plato's Republic, of which the scene is laid about 430 BC, Cephalus, the father of Lysias, is among the dramatis personae, and the emigration of Lysias to Thurii was said to have followed his father's death.

 Daniel Was An Amazing Forecaster
The 70 year period has been calculated two different ways: (1) form the first captivity in 605 BC (2 Kings 24.1) until the altar was rebuilt by the by; the returning exiles in 537 (Ezra 3.1-6), or (2) from the detruction of the Temple in 586 until the exiles finished the rebuilding in 515.
This leaves only 25 days to be accounted for between 444 B.C. and A.D. By adding the 25 days to Nisan 1 or March 5 (of 444 B.C.), one comes to March 30 (of A.D. 33) which was Nisan 10 in A.D. This is the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem.

 457BC_WhyCorrect   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
There is a short gap between 404 BC and 403 BC with a couple of minor kings during that gap.  This was apparently due to political situations at the palace.
To begin, the author wishes to show why 444 BC is not the correct date for the beginning of the 70 weeks/years prophecy.  Then the reasons why 457 BC is the correct date will be covered.
There are several flaws in the arguments against 457 BC as the correct date for the fulfillment of the 70 weeks/years prophecy.  These flaws listed here are the common ones the author has run into, but certainly there probably exist other arguments against it.

 Daniel 9:25 (King James Version) :: Forerunner Commentary :: Bible Tools   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Historians know of at least four decrees made by the Persian emperors "to restore and build Jerusalem." Cyrus made one in 538 BC, Darius I made one in 520 BC and Artaxerxes I made two, one in 457 BC and one in 444 BC.
Verses 26-27 are very specific that the Messiah would work for three and a half years, half of a week, before being "cut off." When we add three and a half years to AD 27, we find that Christ's ministry ended in AD 31, the year of His crucifixion and resurrection.
It was 538 BC, and the decree from Cyrus that the Jews could return to Judah had already been made or was about to be made.

If the new moon occurred at 7:09 AM on March 13, 445 BC, as he supposed, the new crescent would not be old enough and large enough and far enough away from the setting sun by that evening to be seen.
You might wonder if Anderson could have started with 444 BC and ended with 33 AD, especially since 33 AD is considered to be one of the possible years of Christ's crucifixion.
The prophecy should begin in the fall of 457 BC and be tied to Artaxerxes' 7th year, not his 20th year.

 360-days Prophetic Calendar is the most accurate of all calendars!
Of the four possible decrees that could fit this prophecy, most bible scholars say that the decree of Artaxerxes in 445 BC (some say 444 BC) allowing Nehemiah to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem best fits the terms of the prophecy.
Essentially it meant an non-adjusted year of 360 days x 483 years from the spring of either 445 or 444 BC, thus ending in either the spring of AD 32 or 33.
Likewise, after the Messiah, "the light of the world," was born on 1 BC, Dec. 25th (traditionally, that is), He was then circumcised and received His name "Jesus" 7 days later (i.e., "the eight day" inclusive) on AD 1, Jan. 1st.

He won a prize with his first comedy in 427 B.C., soon after the opening of the Peloponnesian war, when he was still a lad under age.
He left three sons, all comic poets: and he died about 380 B.C., when Athens had lost all political importance, and all her great men except Plato and his followers.

 :: View topic - CYRUS DID DECREE THE REBUILDING OF JERUSALEM!!
King Artaxerxes' later 444 B.C. commandment was not an initial “going forth” of the command to restore Jerusalem, but a renewal to now finish the process of rebuilding the city itself (a process already decreed and started from Cyrus, when he first laid the foundations of the temple).
In closing it should be noted that the date 444 B.C. is not the best to calculate the Messiah's life, as prophecied in Daniel 9:25-27 because it conflicts with the true dates in His life (and upsets the exactnes of the prophecy by a decade or so).
The fact is that 457 BC is a wrong date derived from the simple subtraction 33-490 = -457, 33 being the wrong date from the crucifixion, 490 being the supposed length of the 70 weeks, and -457 being the year historians call 458 BC, not 457BC!
