1260 Days of the Two Witnesses

Revelation 11:3-6. For 1260 days or 42 months the two witnesses prophesy in the city of their God.

Remember days are also used elsewhere in the Bible (cf Daniel) to symbolize years.

Who are the two witnesses? They are not mentioned by name in the Bible.

Where else in the Bible is the number 1260 used?

Background Reading:

The Two Witnesses – 1260 Days

3 I will give my two witnesses who wear sackcloth the authority to prophesy for 1,260 days.”

4 These witnesses are the two olive trees and the two lamp stands standing in the presence of the Lord of the earth. 5 And if anyone should want to hurt them, fire comes out of their mouths and burns up their enemies. If anyone wants to hurt them, he must be killed in this manner. 6 These witnesses have authority to close the heavens in order to keep rain from falling while they are prophesying. They also have authority to turn bodies of water into blood and to strike the earth with any plague, as often as they desire.
