YEARS.

The Sixth Age includes the reigns of the kings from the first year

of the reign of Cyrus to the 20th of Artaxerxes, when the 70 weeks [of years) foretold by Daniel commence, according to the more common and more probable opinion. Sixty-nine of these weeks, that is 483 years, appear to have elapsed from this time to the Baptism of Christ, which took place when he was thirty years

of age.
