In Daniel 12:5-6, we read that the prophet Daniel heard an angel ask the pre-incarnate Christ: "How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?" That is — how long would it be, after 70 A.D., before the predictions contained in these Holy Scriptures would be fulfilled? Cf. Daniel 7:19-25 and 8:9-14 with 12:7-12.
