The "Time, Times, and a Half-a-time"

Three times in the Bible, the "3˝-year period" is broken-down into "a time, times, and half a time," (Daniel 7:25; 12:7; Revelation 12:14, cf. Daniel 4:16,23,25,32). Anything repeated three times in the Bible is exceptionally important. The consensus of scholarship understands "a time, times, and half a time" to signify "a year, two years, and half a year." In other words, "a time, times, and half a time" consists of "360 days, 720 days, and 180 days," for a total of 1260 days or 3˝ years (Revelation 11:3; 12:6).

The reference to "time, times, and half a time" from Daniel 12:7 is given in parallel to the "1290 days" mentioned just four verses later in Daniel 12:11. By standard interpretation, the "1290" is simply the "1260" (of Revelation 12:6) except with the leap month of

30days added to it. (See "Intercalary Month"). Consequently, again we have "a time" ("360,"+exceptnow makes it "30"), "times" ("390720"), "and half a time" ("180days"), for a total of1290days.

A Year with the Leap Month Added Equals 390 Days^{{17}}Table 10

The 3˝ years is further broken down into a "time, times, and half-a-time."

(Click here for a fuller discussion of the "time, times, and half-a-time," of Daniel 7:25; 12:7 and Revelation 12:14.)

(or 1260 + 30 days)

Evidently, therefore, the "390 days" that Ezekiel besieged Jerusalem simply denoted a Bible-Prophecy year with the

leap monthadded; it is but the first "" ("390 days") of the "time, times, and half a time," (Ezekiel 4).timeFurthermore, since Ezekiel acted out his siege precisely 7 years before the city fell (i.e., seven "

times," cf. Daniel 4:16,23,25,32), thus we have a ", times, and half a time" (3˝ years), twice repeated between Ezekiel's siege and the fall of the city. (I.e., two of "3˝timetimes" totals "7 times.") (At this point things become more complex, because of this we have a detailed version of this document.)

Ponder the following chart:

Table 11(All three time-lines are of equal value.

They represent three ways of describing a seven-year period.)

Ezekiel’s siege

|July 593___1290 + 1260 days___July586 BC |ExileEzekiel’s siege

|July 593__3˝ "times" + 3˝ "times"__JulyExile586 BC |Ezekiel’s siege

|July 593_390+ 720 + 180 +360+ 720 + 180_July586 |Exile

Therefore, Ezekiel’s "390" is simply one segment in the breakdown of the 1290 of Daniel as much as was the full "430" of Ezekiel, (i.e.,

x 3 =4301290;and+ 720 + 180 =3901290too). In later chapters, all of this will be fine-tuned to the exact "hour and day and month and year," (Revelation 9:15, cf. Ezekiel 5:2).

Note the 390 years from when they entered Egypt until when Moses sought to deliver them out of Egypt, (1486 BC). This

is part of the "390, times, and half-a-time" breakdown of the 1290 years, from the entry to Egypt (1876 BC) unto the exiletimebackto Egypt (and Babylon) in 586 BC. We will detail these things in a later chapter. Recall the chart below.

Entry|__390_years__| exile__+_40_|Exodus

1876 BC (Israel enters Egypt) + 390 years = 1486 BC (failed

exodus, andexileof Moses), + 40 = 430 years total till the actual exodus of 1446 BC.(1876 BC) + 390 + 40 =

430+ (430 + 430) = 1290 years to 586 exile.

0r, (1876 BC) +390+ (2˝ times 360 =900) = 1290 years to 586 exile.

(Ezekiel's symbolic siege lasted390days (and430),

and the actual siege lasted900inclusive, a total of 1290 days!)

Next, to more simpler things!
