Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary Definition of Truth: Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. The truth of history constitutes its whole value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural prophecies.
483 YEARS FROM THE REBUILD OF JERUSALEM TO MESSIAH CRUCIFIED
This is the one prophecy that should have been clear to anyone reading the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament). Though some historians can argue exact dates, the clarity of the time frame of the first advent of Jesus Christ the Messiah is clear. I believe this is why Andrew was prepared and looking for the Messiah (Jhn 1:41). The last of the seventy weeks is still yet to be fulfilled (Dan 9:27). According to Daniel 7:25, 11:35 the times are set, but only God the Father knows when (Mat 24:36).
