“We have found the Messiah!”
“For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?”

2 Cor. 3:14

Is Jesus the Messiah?
The traditional Jewish chronological reckoning, which the modern nation of Israel still uses, accounts the creation of the world to be 3,761 BC, in contrast to Ussher’s 4,004 BC. Why the difference?
The bulk of the difference lies in that the main Jewish document that this is based on (the Seder Olam, c. 160 AD, which is below) cuts off 164 years (contrary to accepted secular history) from the Persian period between the 500’s and 300’s BC. This otherwise inexplicable anomaly more than likely happened, as Floyd Jones shows in detail below, due to the Jews’ fudging Daniel’s prophecy of 70 weeks (490 years) till the Messiah so that it would not fit with the coming of Jesus, but with the failed messianic rebellion of Bar Kokhba in 132 AD.
