Do you have the book by John S. Evans. He masterfully deals with this (including P. Mauro's treatment and Ed Young of Westminster Seminary's rebuttal to Mauro). Evans has written a great commentary from a Biblical Preterism perspective...high scholarship. Basically, he takes on John Noe's view, which is quite attractive, and places the 1,290 and 1,335 between Feb/Mar 67 to Aug/Sept 70 C.E. It is quite detailed, as a good paper should be. Get the book!
The name of the book is The Four Kingdoms of Daniel. It was available through Xulon, but I am not sure it is anymore (John took the rights away from Xulon and was going to self publish it but I think the cost was too much).
I have to disagree with any interpreation that puts the abomination of desolation in AD 70. Jesus said those in Judea needed to flee when they saw the abomination of desolation Matt. 24:15-16. The time to flee was at the beginning of the war, not the end. At the end of the war one would most probably be dead by the Romans, fellow Jews or famine! I see the beginning of the 1290 days as starting with the abomination of desolation, the coming of the one who would make Israel desolate:
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate. Even until the consummation which is determined is poured out on the desolate Dan. 9:27 NKJV
The end has already been provided in 12:7, it is the shattering of the power of the holy people. It was 1290 days from the coming of Vespasian and Titus (in Feb/Mar AD 67) to the shattering of the power of the Jews with the fall of Jerusalem (in Aug/Sept).
OK so what happened 45 days past the fall of Jerusalem? When on adds 45 days to the fall of Jerusalem (which is the 1335 days) it brings one to the first day past the completion of the celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles. This feast is also known as the Feast of Ingathering. This is significant in that this feast was the last in the yearly cycle and represents the ingathering of God's peple at the end of the age (Matt. 24:29-31; cf. Zech. 14:16-21; Matt. 13:36-43; Rev. 14:8-20).
Yes, Since the feasts seem to have been fulfilled on the date of their occurence (e.g. Passover was fulfilled at AD 30 with the sacrifice of the Lamb of God). It thus makes sense that the feast of Ingathering would be fulfilled at the resurection/ingathering of the saints on the date of its occurence at AD 70. We are told that the resurrection was to happen (i prefer to say was to begin) at the end of the tribulaiton (Dan. 12:1-2). I don't know that much about the Feast of Tabernacles/Ingathering. But I am pretty sure it commerates the time in the wilderness giving way to the saints possesing the Land. The tempoary abodes of the wilderness period gave way to the permenant abode of the Promised Land. It fits the resurrection motif nicely. Are you out there David Curtis (or anyone who knows) tell us about the Feast of Tabernacles.
Just a question off the top of my head....why is there a one month difference between the 1290 days (43 mos) in Daniel, and 42 months in Rev. 11?
