It says 701 BCE plus 2730 is 2030 which is incorrect. What am i doing wrong? How are you coming up with 2030 for Israel? just not adding up. If you subtract it is 2029. but you are losing around 700 years into BC.

## The Years of Punishment Prophecy

This is in regard to the years of punishment prophecy.

There is no year 0 in the Julian/Gregorian calendar, so you need to account for that, which is why you are exactly a year off. This is noted in the presentation just for reference, should that be helpful.

701 Plus 2730 equals 3431 that far more then a year off .

now if you subtract 701 from 2730 equals 2029 now its a year off but the presentation says to add.

but if you subtract the timeline is off. ...im sure there is something i may be missing please help me out thanks.

Since there is no year zero then you gain 1 year on the calendar. 2730 - 701 = 2029 + 1 (no zero year) = 2030

@PHILIP JENSEN

Try this exercise which I present to you here below.

How many years are there from 3 BCE to 3 CE? The first thought is 3 + 3 = 6 years. But let's look at this closer:

From 3 BCE to 2 BCE ➜ 1 year

From 2 BCE to 1 BCE ➜ 1 year

From 1 BCE to 1 CE ➜ 1 year

From 1 CE to 2 CE ➜ 1 year

From 2 CE to 3 CE ➜ 1 year

So 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 5 years

So it’s 3 + 3 (-1) = 5 years

The equation is: BCE years + CE years (-1) = number of years

Applying this to your question ➜ how many years are there from 701 BCE to 2030 CE?

701 BCE + 2030 CE (-1) = 2731 years (-1) = 2730 years

or, as @jclagrutta wrote:

2730 years - 701 BCE (+1) = 2029 CE (+1) = 2030 CE

Hope this helps.

God Bless.

thanks for the reply . I understand BC and AD. But i don't know what BCE or CE is . Maybe this is my problem . I measure 1 to 701 to the left for BC and 1 to 2030 to the right for AD . so just going to the right puts me at 2030.

OK as i understand CE and AD is the same, so AD moves to the right on a timeline which starts at one and goes to 2030. So how do you pickup the 701 or rather -1 = 700 for BC? its impossible as i see it.

Israels punishment would have had to start in AD

@PHILIP JENSEN

BC = BCE

AD = CE

BCE stands for: “Before Common Era” ➜ and for example 701 BCE = 701 BC (“Before Christ”)

CE stands for: “Common Era” ➜ and for example 2030 CE = 2030 AD (“Anno Domini”)

Yes, it’s going to the left for BCE (BC) from 1 BCE (BC), and it’s going to the right for CE (AD) from 1 CE (AD).

@PHILIP JENSEN

You have written: “So how do you pickup the 701 or rather -1 = 700 for BC? its impossible as i see it.”

I have problem understanding what you mean. Can you give me a link to this part of Messiah2030’s video you are referring to and have problem understanding? Or tell me if it is in Part 1 or Part 2 of Messiah2030’s video, and the exact time stamp. I will try to look at it, and then I will write you back.

@PHILIP JENSEN

Think of it this way. A normal number line looks like this:

-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 so typically -3 + 10 would equal 7.

If there is no zero, the result is now 8.

-3,-2,-1,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9

If you think of BCE as negative numbers it makes it easier to think about. So -701 + 2730 + 1 (for the missing zero) = 2030

@PHILIP JENSEN

I have found this part that you are referring to. I understand it like this:

Messiah2030 says in the presentation, that 390 years after 701 BCE (which brings us to 311 BCE) the House of Israel did not repent. So their punishment of 390 years must be multiplied by 7. So the full number of years of their punishment is: 7 x 390 = 2730 years.

Then Messiah2030 writes in the presentation:

“701 BCE + 2730 (minus 1 for no year 0) = 2030”

You can understand the above like this ➜ “at which year will we land after 2730 years from 701 BCE”?

The answer would be ➜ 2030 CE (AD)

By writing: “701 BCE + 2730 (minus 1 for no year 0)”, I think that Messiah2030 made a mental shortcut, cause it really means: “at which year will we land after 2730 years from 701 BCE”. To check that mathematically in an equation, you have to put it like this:

701 BCE + 2030 CE (-1) = 2731 years (-1) = 2730 years

Or:

2730 years - 701 BCE (+1) = 2029 CE (+1) = 2030 CE

- 701 BCE + 2730 years (+1) = 2029 CE (+1) = 2030 CE

I think that this is why you were confused ➜ due to this mental shortcut.

For that equation ➜ check what I have written to you in a previous comment, when I showed you the example.

EDIT:

Or as @jclagrutta said about the negative BCE (BC) numbers: “-701 + 2730 + 1 (for the missing zero) = 2030”

I do understand that -701+2730+1 (for the missing zero) = 2030 But if you move to the right starting with 1AD and count to 2000 years crossing 2 days on the timeline that's 2000 years.

and move 30 more years into the 1000-year millennial reign, where do we pick up any more years in BC? We would have to subtract anything else. I know I'm missing something just can't get it. I went through everything and so far, this is the only one I am stuck on.
