Chronology of the Kingdom

 

Piecing together the jigsaw of Bible chronology is not an easy task, so claims of pin-point accuracy concerning ancient dates tend to get dismissed. Is it not more reasonable to say, "approximately?" However, the internal chronologies of the Old Testament are more accurate than previously thought. Beneath the surface of the Bible lies a timeline of incredible precision. I am referring, of course, to the Sabbatical years (Heb. Shemitah) and to the Jubilee cycle which was considered lost.

They are not lost, and if our discovery is correct, it will stem back to the time of the Exodus from Egypt because that is when the Hebrew calendar began. Much of my argument stands or falls on this date and 1 Kings 6:1 is the vital link, but what good is it if the reign of Solomon is not fixed? Why does it ‘contradict’ the chronology of the Judges by a century? How do the reigns of Kings interlock? Also, academic conclusions in this field sometimes differ with each other. However, by discovering the Sabbatic-Jubilee system, we are given an unbroken sequence of dates backing up the historical record and providing a dating framework upon which ancient dates can be cross-referenced.

"Your house and your kingdom shall be made sure forever before me. Your throne shall be established forever."

(2 Samuel 1:16)

I have decided to publish these charts and related papers here on the Internet, and make them available for readers who wish to print and study the subject closely. Every year from Moses to Jesus is shown with each page covering between one and two generations. Vertical bars represent one year, major events are added and the continuous sequence of 'sevens' hold it together.
