Abrahamic Chronology

“This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;” (Gen. 5:1).   [5456 B.C. + 32 lunar days]

“In the six hundredth year of the life of Noe, in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, on this day all the fountains of the abyss were broken up, and the flood-gates of heaven were opened.” (Gen. 7:11 Septuagint).     [3200 B.C. Oct. 31st, 6:00 pm]

“And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt-offerings on the altar.” (Gen. 8:20).     [3199 B.C. Dec. 31st, 6:00 pm; 365 days for 3199 B.C. + days in 3200 B.C. = 31 days Dec. + 30 days Nov. + 4 days in Oct. when Noah unloaded the animals = 430 day curse. This is evidence Noah changed to a solar calendar.]

“Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.” (Gen. 9:25). “Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.” (Gen. 11:9).     [Concurrent events. Circa 3185 B.C; Pre-dynastic Egypt started.]

“So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran (Mitanni).”     [2158 B.C.]

“Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.” (Gen. 19:24,25).     [Sometime between 2158 and 2133 B.C. when Isaac was born. (Collins and Scott’s DISCOVERING THE CITY OF SODOM)]

“For Sarah conceived and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him.” (Gen. 25:7).     [2133 B.C.]

“And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan-aram (Haran in Mitanni), the sister to Laban the Syrian.” (Gen. 25:20).     [2093 B.C.]

“And these are the days of the years of Abraham’s life which he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years. Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.” (Gen. 25:7,8).     [2058 B.C.]

“And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau’s heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.” (Gen. 25:26).     [2033 B.C.]

“Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed…And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.” (Gen. 32:28,30).

[2013 B.C.]

This begins the Abrahamic Covenant of Gen. 15. The Passover was a Monday night Oct. 4th, 1584 B.C, event. – Peniel was the night of Oct. 4th, 2014 B.C. Joseph was born that year (Gen. 30:25) as he was thirty years old when he began serving Pharaoh (Gen. 41:46), which started the four hundred years servitude of Abraham’s “deep sleep” (Gen. 15:13). Not accounted for are the sojourning of thirty years. Joseph was in Egypt thirteen years before the servitude began (Gen. 37:2), leaving seventeen years unaccounted. Was Abraham in Egypt seventeen years (Gen. 12:10-20)?

“And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the first born of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the first born of cattle. And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead. And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both you and the children of Israel; and go, serve the Lord as you have said. Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be gone; and bless me also (ha, ha). (Exodus 12:29-32). “Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt.” (Exodus 12:40,41).     [Passover Oct. 4th, 1584 B.C. 12:00 midnight; Exodus Oct. 5th, 1584 B.C.; there are two described periods in Egypt 1.) Slavery, 400 years. 2.) Sojourning, 430 years. The October events are April dates in modern times.]

“Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.” (Ex. 17:8 – Moller’s THE EXODUS CASE). Amalek (Hyksos) attacked, then proceeded to Egypt.     [Two months after Exodus – 1584 B.C.]

“And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.” (Deut. 34:7). “And the people came up out of Jordan on the tenth day of the first month, and encamped in Gilgal, in the east border of Jericho.” (Joshua 4:19). “For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness…” (Joshua 5:6).     [1544 B.C.]

“Saul reigned one year; and when he had reigned two years over Israel,” (1 Samuel 13:1). “Thus saith the Lord of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how they laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt. Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare not;” (1 Samuel 15: 2,3). “Now it came to pass after the death of Saul, when David was returned from the slaughter of the Amalekites, and David had abode two days in Ziklag;” (2 Samuel 1:1).     [Circa 1150 B.C. (Saul drives Amalek out of Avaris, Egypt before David was anointed) – Amalikites (Hyksos, Amu) in Egypt approximately 434 years; slaughtered by Saul in his (2nd or 20th?) year, and what length of reign; Septuagint doesn’t include King James, 1 Samuel 13:1. (Velikovsky’s AGES IN CHAOS); 1 Samuel 7:2, 2 Samuel 6:4; Rowley’s FROM JOSEPH TO JOSHUA; To understand these statements it must be assumed the Amalekites had an outpost in southern Palestine not attacked by Saul, but destroyed by David.]

“So David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David.”     [1148 B.C. – 1108 B.C.; David had previously been anointed before Saul’s death.]

“And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt in the fourth year of Solomon’s reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of the Lord.” (1 Kings 6:1).     [1104 B.C.]

“And when the queen of Sheba (Hatshepsut) heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the Lord….she came to Jerusalem with a very great train,”     [Sometime between 1104 B.C. and 1068 B. C. (Velikovsky’s AGES IN CHAOS)]

“And the time that Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel was forty years.” (1 Kings 11:42).     [1108 – 1068 B.C.]

Rehoboam (King of Judah – Solomon’s Son).     [1068 B.C. – 1051 B.C.]

Jeroboam (King of Israel – returned from Egypt).     [1068 B.C. – 1046 B.C.]

Shishak (Thothmes III, King of Egypt).     [1063 B.C. pummeled Jerusalem; picture of his treasures on wall in Karnak in Velikovsky’s AGES IN CHAOS, Plate 5]

Abijam (King of Judah).     [1050 B.C.; 18th year of Jeroboam]

Asa (King of Judah).     [1048 B.C.; 20th year of Jeroboam; pummeled Amenhotep ɪɪ and his Egyptian “thousand thousands”, 2 Chr. 14:9-12)]

Nadab (King of Israel).     [1046 B.C.; 2nd year of Asa]

Baasha (King of Israel).     [1045 B.C.; 3rd year of Asa]

Elah (King of Israel).     [1022 B.C.; 26th year of Asa]

Zimri (King of Israel).     [1021 B.C.; 27th year of Asa]

Omri (King of Israel).     [1017 B.C.; 31st year of Asa; built city of Samaria]

Ahab (King of Israel).     [1010 B.C.; 38th year of Asa; Tell Amarna letters supposedly written in this decade till 10th century B.C. to Akhenaten and his son Tutankhamen]

 

These dates are chronologically accurate Biblically. But, the Pharaoh of the Exodus (supposedly Akhenaten) should then have been Pharaoh 574 years earlier and been drowned in the Gulf of Aqaba!

This chronology doesn’t include the discrepancies of dead reckoning apparent in scripture. The “benchmark” dates of Solomon, Hezekiah and Daniel are used to finish computations to the Messiah.

“And Hezekiah sent to all Israel and Judah, and wrote letters also to Ephraim and Manasseh, that they should come to the house of the Lord at Jerusalem, to keep the passover unto the Lord God of Israel.” (2 Chron. 30:1).     [800 B.C.; Passover was a multiple of the Sabbatical cycle of 49 years. 16 of these 49 year cycles = 784 years subtracted from the Exodus 1584 B.C. = 800 B.C. Passover. (Showalter’s NEW CHRONOLOGICAL HARMONY OF HISTORY AND THE BIBLE computes 745 years from entrance to Canaan till Hezekiah’s days.]

“After these things, and the establishment thereof, Sennacherib king of Assyria came and entered into Judah, and encamped against the fenced cities, and thought to win them for himself….(but he himself laid siege against Lachish, and all his power with him)….And the Lord sent an angel which cut off the mighty men of valour, and the leaders and captains in the camp of the king of Assyria. So he returned with shame of face to his own land.” (2 Chron. 32:1,9,21).     [799 B.C.]

Daniel’s Prophecies

Biblically, we arrive at the times of Daniel numerical:

  1. From the A.D. 33 rotation, working backwards using the 33-year life of Christ and the 49-year Sabbatical, a year is determined for the Exodus. This is based on Jesus Chris fulfilling the sin offering. 33 * 49 = 1617 years subtracted from A.D. 33 equals 1584 B.C. as the year of Exodus. 33 years are the rotation of tropical years around the ellipse. Both rotations, 33 years and 49 years converge on 1584 B.C., providing a triangulation. The larger 231-year rotation provides the seven days of the week.
  2. From the Exodus to Solomon’s 4th year when he began to build the original temple was 480 years. 1584 B.C. – 480 years = 1104 B.C. (1Kings 6:1).
  3. Ezekiel prophesied against Judah and Israel representing 430 years (Ezekiel 4: 3-6). 1104 B.C. – 430 years = 674 B.C. (Nebuchadnezzar conquered Jerusalem).
  4. Jeremiah prophesied 70 years captivity in Babylon (Jeremiah 25:11). 674 B.C. – 70 = 604 B.C.
  5. Daniel’s “seventy weeks” are based on “the going forth of the commandment to restore and build Jerusalem” (Daniel 9:25).
  6. 604 B.C. is Cyrus the Persians 1st year, but he only authorized the re-building of the temple (2 Chron. 36:22,23; Ezra 1:1-4).
  7. Zerabbabel and Jeshua returned to Jerusalem and began to build the temple (Ezra 5:2).
  8. Traditionally, Ezra was the second wave to go to Jerusalem 78 years later (Ezra 8:31). 604 B.C. – 78 years = 526 B.C.
  9. 14 years later Nehemiah left to build the walls and infrastructure of Jerusalem (Nehemiah 1,2). 526 B.C. – 14 = 512 B.C.
  10. Daniel prophesied 70 weeks (70 * 7 = 490 years). 512 B.C. – 490 years = 22 B.C. which identifies the prophecy of Daniel 9:27 “midst”. From Julius Caesar’s 44 B.C. “perpetual dictatorship” half or midst is 22 B.C. when Caesar Augustus assumed the position of full dictator of Rome.
  11. Daniel’s prophecies of 1290 days, 1335 days and 2300 days identify the birth of Jesus Christ as Tuesday, March 26th, 1 B.C. Ephemeris calendar; Jesus was crucified Friday, April 3rd, A.D. 33; #5 Julian calendar; which is the same day as Monday, April 3rd, A.D. 32; #2 Ephemeris calendar because the Julian calendar didn’t have a zero year and the leap day of February 29th, A.D. 1 Julian calendar didn’t count in the 12060 day rotation.
