Karl and Yonah,

I take the time of Ezra to be 457 BCE with Nehemiah 447-446 BCE. The 483
years (62 weeks + 7 weeks = 69 weeks) would take one to the time of 27 AD.
Nehemiah went to Jerusalem after obtaining permission of Artaxerxes IV to
rebuild the walls of which was accomplished. I do not take the seven weeks
of years to run concurrent. The text does not indicate that. The Mashiach is
cut off at the end of the 69th week.
