VIDEO: Ministry of Yeshua (Jesus) 3.5 years or 70 Weeks (490 days)?

Many ask: "What does it matter how long Yeshua's ministry lasted?" The reason this matters is because there are numerous prophetic parallels between Yeshua's first coming (as the Suffering Servant) with His future coming as the Anointed Son of David, King of Israel. There are at least 3 levels to Daniel's 70 Week Prophecy and Yeshua's ministry chronologically falls into precisely that, 70 Weeks.

The following quotes taken from The Greatest Story NEVER Told! The Jonah Code and the Seventy Weeks Prophecy of Daniel by Michael Rood.

"From when Yahshua was baptized in water, into the Spring, the Summer, and all the way around to the Fall, showing you week by week exactly where Yahshua was with no lapse in time at all. Then we find out there is a miracle that takes place in every one of the Gospels, the miracle of the feeding of the five thousand. It takes place two weeks and three days before the Feast of Tabernacles (in everyone of the Gospels). However, in some of the ancient Greek texts, 8 Greek words were added in: "and Passover, Feast of the Jews was nigh". And what that did was artificially expand the length of Yeshua's ministry. They added, literally, 6 and a half months of absolutely blank canvas into the Gospel record."

There are many places in our English Bible translations where Yeshua is falsely depicted as being anti-Torah (no doubt He was anti-Takkanot), but it is rare that entire sentences are added into the text like in the case of John 6:4 for such purposes. Rood continues:

"Then we see what they [scribes] did add was a Passover that doesn't exist. A Passover that Yahshua never goes up to. We see exactly what He is doing for the next two weeks. He never goes any where near Jerusalem, but He does feed five thousand people with leavened bread (which I now affectionately refer to as the Feast of Leavened Bread). Five days later, He feeds another four thousand people with Leavened Bread. He teaches a whole synagogue full of people who are disobedient to the Torah and they're hanging out in the Galilee instead of being up at Jerusalem. For this whole two week period of time, He is doing nothing but violating the Torah, if those words were in the original text."

Rood then describes how this falsified Passover is followed up with five and half months of more blank canvas until we come all the way back around to the Festival of Tabernacles (Sukkot).

"...Yahshua's ministry, if it is a fulfillment of Daniel's Prophecy, is going to be 70 weeks, exactly 490 days from the day He is baptized until the day He baptizes with the Holy Spirit, one of the layers of Daniel."

"The early church fathers, the first and second centuries after the Gospels were written, Clement of Alexandria, being the foremost on this, said that Yahshua's ministry was about one year in duration. Four other church fathers in the first two centuries afterwards said that His ministry was about a year in duration. And you know what all the rest of the church fathers said? Absolutely nothing. They didn't dispute it!"

The other year which is typically used to artificially expand Yeshua's ministry is determined by reckoning John 5:1 with yet another Passover, when it is actually the Festival of Shavout (Pentecost). Adding these two extra Passovers into the Ministry equation is the reason modern teachers insist Yeshua ministered for 3 and a half years before His ascension back to the Father. When you take these two non-Passovers out of the equation, His ministry beautifully shrinks back down to 70 Weeks (490 days). To go into this in greater detail, get Rood's teaching: 70 Week Ministry of the Messiah.

  1. pls look up this parable of the fig tree.
    Luke 13:6-9 :
    “He spake also this parable: A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold,these three(3) years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord,let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.”
    Jesus meant HE had given 3+1years for the fig tree to bear fruit…note that He cursed a fig tree after His final entry into Jerusalem. Matthew 21:18-21

  2. Your interpretation amounts to 4 years. How does that fit with the mainstream Christian view that Yeshua’s ministry lasted 3.5 years?

  3. Roughly ten hours of video by one of the most blessed teachers annointed by God. If you dispute the 70 week ministry of Yeshua, you havent seen the whole video, or investigated the evidence.
    3 and 1 years is the 4000 years before The Christ, 2000 more brings us to the 1000 year Jubilee Shabbat!
    What IS the acceptable year of Our Lord, or is it, the acceptable years.
    To maintain the falacy of the three+ year ministry is using the same mindset as maintaining the falacy of christmas and easter.
    If you watched the whole video series, checked it all out, and are still stuck on silly, its a very unfortunate thing, as the truth was right before you, and you missed it!
    Here is another fine truth. We cannot change the past, but today we can repent! And from this day forward go and sin no more!
    In Heaven is a book for each of us that we write with our own hand every day with every decision we make.
    How does YOUR story end…….?

  4. Michael Rood is correct that the public ministry of Yahushua was 490 literal days, a bit over one year. If you prefer to read and view detailed charts, instead of watching hours of videos, you can go here: This is not a copy of Rood’s material, but presents the same concept:

    By starting with the chronology in the Gospel of John, and noting Yahushua’s attendance at the Feasts, and correlating this to the other three Gospels, we discover that his public ministry was about one year long. Further investigation reveals that the entire length, including the 40 days fast in the wilderness and 50 days until Pentecost, is exactly 490 days, matching Daniel’s prophecy.

    Compared to Rood’s presentation, this study differs in the precise chronology of the Passion Week, but this does not affect the 70 weeks itself.
