The prevailing view of the early Church fathers was that Daniel’s vision of the 70 weeks was fulfilled in 70 AD.

“The prevailing view of the early Church fathers was that Daniel’s vision of the 70 weeks was fulfilled in 70 AD. The final or 70th week began with the baptism of Jesus and his presentation to Israel by John the Baptist. The Messiah was cut off in the middle of the 70th week when Jesus was crucified. The abomination of desolation and the great tribulation spoken of by Daniel were fulfilled in the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple by the Romans in 70 AD.

These events marked the end of the Jewish age and the dawning of Messiah’s Day.”

(All of the events stated in the first paragraph above were stated by Jesus TO HIS DISCIPLES, and in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 Jesus said, TO HIS DISCIPLES: ALL THESE THINGS WILL HAPPEN DURING YOUR GENERATION.)  

Jesus said to His disciples: I will return in the clouds bringing My Kingdom during your generation

 

Look at the events stated in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 that occur before the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple–THIS HAPPENED IN 70 AD; AND NOT IN THE FUTURE

The law was fulfilled around 70 AD [destruction of Jerusalem and the temple]–Matthew 5; Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21; and other verses

 

For those were the days of vengeance —70 AD DESTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM AND THE TEMPLE — so that all things which are written were then FULFILLED
