I am interested in locating both patristic resources and peer-reviewed scholarly works, concerning the existence of a possible connection between the following two passages from the Book of Daniel :
Daniel 5:30-31 In that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain. And Darius the Median took the kingdom, being about threescore and two years old.
Daniel 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself.
I have also posted a similar question on Judaism.SE.
