The Reckoning to October 22, 1844

May 1844 - August 1844

The reckoning of the year 1844 was right - even scholars who had no conviction about the near advent of Christ saw no flaw in the reckoning of the prophecy. Basic was the prophecy of Daniel 8:14. From the date of the decree of the king of Persia, found in Ezra 7, which was given by the end of 457 before Christ, the 2300 years of Daniel 8:14 must terminate by no later than April 21, 1844.
