 The Year 457 B.C. and it's Importance
Cyrus, in 536 B.C., allowed the Jews to return to Jerusalem, but Cyrus died in 530 B.C., he was followed by Cambyses, who was followed by False Smerdis.
Thus, according to our months, Ezra's trip lasted from April to late July 457 B.C. The decree of Artaxerxes I went into effect after Ezra's arrival in Palestine in the early fall—or late summer—of 457 B.C. This was "the going forth" of the decree recoded in Daniel 9:25-26.
Sir Isaac Newton studying these historical evidence concluded that Ezra took the Artaxerxes' decree to Jerusalem in 457 B.C. This was placed in the margin of the King James Version in 1701.

 457BC_WhyCorrect   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
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.

The name is used to designate two distinct periods of alliance, the first 478-404 BC, the second 378-338 BC The first alliance was made between Athens and a number of Ionian states (chiefly maritime) for the purpose of prosecuting the war against Persia.
In 394 BC, Conon reestablished the Athenian mastery of the sea at Cnidus.
By 351 BC, however, the status of the league had been seriously weakened in the north and in the east, and in 338 BC the league was utterly destroyed by the victory of Philip II of Macedon in the battle of Chaeronea.

In the 5th century BC Halicarnassus and other Dorian cities of Asia were to some extent absorbed by the Delian League, but the peace of Antalcidas in 387 made them subservient to Persia; and it was under Mausolus, a Persian satrap who assumed independent authority, that Halicarnassus attained its highest prosperity.
Struck by the natural strength and beauty of its position, Mausolus removed to Halicarnassus from Mylasa, increasing the population of the city by the inhabitants of six towns of the Leleges.

www.gobedo.com /70weeks.htm   (2076 words)

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!

The birth and conception points of Christ are from when all other dates take their cue in the 360 calendar; there is an intentional 5 day difference between them, which answers to the 6 to 1 BC difference in birth dates of the literal and traditional dates for His birth.

 Daniel 9:25 (King James Version) :: Forerunner Commentary :: Bible Tools   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
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.

 Ellen White's Life: New Hope Through Careful Study
From the date of the decree of the king of Persia, found in Ezra 7, which was given in 457 before Christ, the 2300 years of Daniel 8:14 must terminate with 1843.
It was not at first perceived that if the decree did not go forth at the beginning of the year 457 B.C., the 2300 years would not be completed at the close of 1843.
But it was ascertained that the decree was given near the close of the year 457 B.C., and therefore the prophetic period must reach to the fall of the year 1844.

Clearly, unlike the Persians who'd counted the 7th year of their king from 1 Nisanu that previous year [458 BC], Ezra was not counting this gentile king's seventh year from 1 Abib[Nisan] 3303[458 BC], but was counting from the Hebrew civil calendar new year of 1 Tishri 3304 [in the fall of 458 BC].
