The « Other Apostasy »

Donatus the Great developed a heresy, of which created many other heresies. This mother of heresies is the belief that Holy Mother Church is composed only of those who are just.

The prophet Daniel had a vision of the Angel Gabriel, who told him that the Messiah would appear after sixty-nine weeks (Daniel 9:20 and 25). Sixty-nine weeks is a Jewish way of saying sixty-nine sevens (69* 7), or 483 years. The 483 years began “from the going forth of the word to restore and build Jerusalem to the coming of an anointed one.” (Daniel 9:25).

The “going forth of the word to restore and build Jerusalem” occurred when King Artaxerxes issued the proclamation to restore and rebuild Jerusalem in 453 B.C. Now if you do the math, 453 B.C. minus 483 years is A.D. 30, the same year that Jesus began his public ministry. Jesus started his ministry when he was 30 years old. This implies that he was born around 1 A.D. or 1 B.C.
