OLD TESTAMENT

390 Years Confirmed

Detailed explanation of the 390 years time span from the division of the kingdom, to the termination of the Kingdom of Judah at the hand of Nebuchadnezzar in BC 536.

Nehemiah Chapter 12

Addresses the traditional modern error to the great age problem concerning Nehemiah and Ezra in “creating” a second Nehemiah and Ezra, while not explaining the excessive age question concerning this entire generation of leaders (and that of the general population).

Consequently, it must be seen that a 91-year gap does not exist between chapters 10 and 12 or 7 and 8 of Nehemiah as is commonly reported. This resolves the unlikely anomaly whereby an entire generation was suddenly presumed to have lived to and far beyond 120 years. After all, not since the time of Moses, almost 1,100 years prior, had an entire generation reached such an advanced age.

5 - Kings of the Divided Monarchy BC 975-586 BC

BC 975-586. Detailed explanation of the reign of the Kings of the divided monarchy with a linear chronology chart depicting the years and explaining the year of acension. Chart 5 illustrates in exhaustive detail the two problems in understanding basic chronology in the Books of Kings and Chronicles.

First Problem
The first is determining the month used by a king and/or nation in beginning the regnal year. The kings of Judah used Spring (the month of Nisan [Abib). Further, the Hebrew new years were regulated by observable natural phenomena controlled by the sun such as the stage of crop development and flowering of the almond tree, and not by merely numbering the lunar months and days.

Second Problem
The second is understanding the method used in reckoning regal years. Usually the kings of Judah used accession dating while those of Israel often chose the non-accession method. When these two facts are thoroughly understood, apparent discrepancies between Israel and Judah disappear.

6 - Creation to Creator

Ishbosheth

The true historical course is that the reigns of David over Judah and of Ish-bosheth over Israel were nearly contemporaneous - a little more than seven years each. Furthermore, the two years of 2 Sam. 2:10 is only the first of this period. That is, they are given as those years from which to date the commencement of the wars between the house of Saul and that of David.
