Exactly! But when we ask a hebrew, what will they immediately think
these 'sevens' are?

Dear James,

>Yes! Very astutely observed. But seven what....?

HH: In Daniel 9 I believe that it is seven years. You should be able 
to see this from the parallels between Dan 9:27 and Daniel 11:7, 11 
and several clarifying passages in Revelation.

				Yours,
				Harold Holmyard
