Throughout church history, orthodox scholars and theologians from various positions have come to the agreement that the life, ministry, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ completed Daniel 9. Such theologians as Calvin, Jerome, Augustine, Jonathan Edwards, and many more throughout history have agreed to this same truth. In the 1930’s however, a man named John Nelson Darby broke from this tradition

    There was no way a seventy question test where you can only select between the letters “A” and “B” could possibly tell me how I am, how I feel, and how I react to certain experiences.
