Daniel 9:26 and the Apostasy of Dan Wallace!


Here is why modern versions are dangerous and should be avoided.  Dan Wallace is a professor of New Testament Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary.  Notice what he stated in the footnotes concerning the vicarious death of Christ.  He states “it cannot be defended.”  Basically, he is saying that the death of Christ for His elect cannot be defended according to the Scriptures.  The whole Bible is about the redemption of man through Christ.  To make the claim that vicarious atonement cannot be defended is blatant heresy and if that is the caliber of teachers at Dallas Theological Seminary, then they should be avoided totally.  How can anyone trust the teachings coming out of there?  He obviously does not know the meaning of “vicarious!”


Daniel 9:26 New English Translation (NET Bible)

26 Now after the sixty-two weeks,
an anointed one will be cut off and have nothing.
As for the city and the sanctuary,
the people of the coming prince will destroy them.
But his end will come speedily like a flood.
Until the end of the war that has been decreed
there will be destruction.



Daniel 9:26 The expression have nothing is difficult. Presumably it refers to an absence of support or assistance for the anointed one at the time of his “cutting off.” The KJV rendering “but not for himself,” apparently suggesting a vicarious death, cannot be defended.
