Chapter Summary

The concept of weeks to divide and organize time is present several times and in different texts. Most times it appears as the main concept, as in Enoch 's Apocalypse of Weeks, while at others it appears within the division into four periods in order to explain in more detail one of those particular time units, as in the book of Daniel. The purpose of the chapter (Daniel 9) of the book of Daniel appears to be a pesher, i.e., as D. Dimant describes it, "to bridge the gap between the original prophecy and the contemporary reality of the later author. In the book of Jeremiah, the author offers the reader in two different passages a prediction concerning the end of the exile.
