4. How Long Will the Tribulation Last?

     The length of the tribulation period is not difficult to calculate. Use Daniel's prophecy of the "70 weeks" as the starting point.  Its first "69 weeks" may be calculated as exactly 483 years (from the decree to rebuild Jerusalem in 445 B.C. to Jesus' triumphant entry to Jerusalem).  If "weeks" means 7 years for the first "69 weeks", it would also means 7 years for the 70th week.

     Thus the Great Tribulation will extend over 7 years.  Revelation 17:10 called it "a short space," and Jesus described it as shortened time (Matt. 24:22)

     The mid-point of the tribulation is revealed to us even in days and in months: "42 months" (Rev. 11:2; 13:5), "1260 days" (Rev. 11:3; 12:6), "time, times and an half" (Dan. 12:7).
