Daniel 9:26 - Cyrus

All the translations exaggerate this verse, NIV "Anointed One will be put to death" to emphases the unrelated New Testament and Messiah is the special title given to King Cyrus in Isaiah 45:1.

1 Samuel 20:16
Jonathan [יהונתן] made a covenant [ויכרת] with [עם] house of David [בית דוד].

Daniel 9:26
Messiah [משיח] made a covenant [יכרת]

ויכרת translates into ἐξαρθῆναι 'to lift up, exalt', the adjective, ἐξαιρετός that is הבכרות means 'taken out, picked out, choice' (Jeremiah 24:2) and in Daniel 4:42, the word 'Decree' is גזרת from a root meaning 'to cut out', the Septuagint translates σύγκριμα from κρίνω 'to pick out' also roots the very word, 'Decree'. So words meaning 'to cut or pick out' in both Hebrew and Greek are words that root words for 'decree, covenant and treaty'. Daniel 9:27 reads והגביר ברית that is κέρεϊ ῥητήν.

Daniel 9:25 reads 'to restore and to build Jerusalem' which was done through a decree made by Cyrus in Ezra 1:2.
so the Messiah in Daniel 9:25 can only have being Cyrus. so named Messiah in Isaiah 45:1.

King Cyrus fulfilled all the Messianic prophecies in the Old Testament and the character of Jesus in the New Testament was based on him, Christ puns כורש [Kowresh].

Xenophon, Cyropaedia 1.3 (Child prodigy aged 12)
Cyrus received until he was twelve years old or a little more; and he showed himself superior to all the other boys of his age both in mastering his tasks quickly and in doing everything in a thorough and manly fashion.

The grandmother of King Cyrus was Aryenis, a Lydian of the 'House of Gyges', the name Γύγ resembles דוד
for Γ/ד interchange between Hebrew and Greek.

The Last Supper of King Cyrus (Eucharist)
Seeing the banquet spread they sat down and feasted, and after they had had their fill of food and wine
(Herodotus 1.211)

In Biblical Hebrew, "Bread and Wine" that is לחם ויין can also be "Food and Wine", since לחם also means meat, probably any food that is baked.
