WHAT YEAR IS IT?

In the pages of this booklet you will find every biblical reference needed to verify what this summary chart reveals. What you do with this information is between you and the Almighty.
Chart-SummaryAuthors Prologue

I have been studying and teaching the whole bible on my radio broadcast, now titled Cross The Border, since 1996. This has afforded me a circumspect view which eludes many who focus upon one topic or another from a “bible perspective.” Over the last ten years I have set about to understand the prophetic portions of the scripture, seeking the Spirit of God by prayer that I not be ensnared by any private interpretation. I believe God has honored that prayer. Unfortunately I have found the revelation, what God has shown me is contrary to what is accepted by the visible church at large, if not utterly unpopular, and made so by the corporate domination of christian media.

Before I began my research into the calendar I of course looked at The Usher Chronology, the Jewish Calendar, and the work of other men. The Usher Chronology already has us into the seventh millennium, as does the Rood calendar. When Usher wrote his chronology accuracy was not so critical with hundreds of years to go, but we are getting down to the wire here and the Millennial reign of Christ certainly has not begun. We have additional hindsight which demands re-inspection and update. The Usher Chronology has its value as an exhaustive work, but is not a focus upon the one object question: What year is it?

In this small booklet I have set about to find a purely biblically derived time line in order to determine about what year it is from the creation. This has not been done on a whim, but is a ten year culmination on this topic, the first five years simmering on the back burner as details were revealed through my regular chapter and verse bible studies. Having published earlier versions on my blog at CrossTheBorder.org beginning about 2009. With the help of my readers and listeners it has been refined to what I believe can only be found incontrovertible by those who are willing to follow the study as revealed here.

You may find that the revelation uncovered here negates many of the popularly held perspectives on the subject of prophecy. But this is not about what is popular, rather it is about what the Bible reveals on this topic. I have included every bible reference so that anyone with even elementary bible study skills will be without excuse to verify or challenge what I have exposed here. If you thereafter find it a compelling thesis I hope it will encourage you to re-examine all the popular prophecy of the day. If you don’t mind having the popular views challenged, you may find my book The Rapture Will Be Canceled just as compelling, this booklet is adapted from one of the chapters therein.

What Year Is It?

WYISIT

Did You Know that God told National Israel exactly what year the Messiah would come the first time? Through the Prophet Daniel he gave them a 483 year countdown to the year that He would show up on the scene. A total of 69 weeks of years (69×7) from the going forth of the decree to rebuild and restore the city Jerusalem.

But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. (Mark 13:32)

Many will argue that we cannot know the day and hour of His return, but the scripture does not say that we cannot know the year. I have found God’s Word to be very exacting. God has hidden a time line in His Word in plain sight and now reveals it to His saints, Daniel says, knowledge will be increased and the wise will understand. Just as He warned National Israel, I believe He has revealed to His Spiritual Israel the year of His return, and I’m going to expose it here so that any one with elementary Bible study skills can follow and verify the findings for themselves:

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Genesis 1:1

The very term, “In the beginning” declares that Time was also part of the creation, it was the beginning of time as we know it.

And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. Genesis 1:2-3

Likewise when He created Light, He created the night-day time cycle. When God said “Let there be light” there was only one thing to see in the vast expanse of the Time Space Continuum: That was the face of the deep, the Earth, void of form, a beautiful water blue marble, alone in an immense universe. Many have a hard time imagining light without the sun, but God is able, and I believe He did it just as He said in His Word.

What year is it? Few would ponder such a question, but rather quickly answer such with the Common Era or Roman date without a second thought. The question presupposes a beginning which must be ascertained before there can be an answer. This work is composed from the perspective that God created our universe in a literal six days just as The Bible recounts and that The Bible has veiled in it a time line from which we can discover the approximate year from the date of creation.

Why is this question important? Because we believe that The Bible is God’s Word and there is incontrovertible evidence that its prophetic utterance is unparalleled in accuracy, it reveals to mankind exactly what is hidden from view beyond the horizon of time. This future is not hidden from the Almighty Creator Who holds all things including all history, past, present and future within His view. He has revealed these future things to authenticate this very Bible as His Word to mankind. This author is not alone in the belief that the scripture indicates an allotted time for the era in which we live that parallels the days of creation, except that the era is made up of thousand year days with a fast approaching seventh day or Sabbath Millennium also known as the Thousand Year Reign of Christ which is immediately preceded by His coming.

Is it the year of the Lord Pontifix Maximus 2015 C.E. (Common Era) according to the ROMAN Gregorian Calendar? Or is it the year 5960 S.C. (Since Creation) according to God’s Word the Bible? For two thousand years, since the introduction of the Julian Calendar, Rome has ruled the worlds dating chronicle of history by it’s calendar as foretold by the prophet Daniel. And he shall … think to change times and laws: (Daniel 7:25) Of course the “he” is the final world dominating authority depicted by the iron legs to the broken iron mixed with clay in the toes of the Daniel Two Image and the seven headed ten horned first beast of Revelation chapter thirteen. I believe the Creator receives more glory when we use His date of creation, and I have this confidence: That we will not be using the ROMAN calendar during the Millennial Reign of Christ.

It is widely accepted that the Millennial Reign of Christ will be the Sabbath or Seventh Millennium from the Creation. Is the Seventh Millennium imminent? With all of the “end of the world, Left Behind, and Great Tribulation–Rapture” fervor of the last hundred or so years it would be wise to find a contiguous linage of time from the Bible itself that we can synchronize with the Common Era Calendar. This clear Biblical chronology indicates that we have about 40 years left before the seventh millennium begins.

The Genealogies

The first column of our chart below of course starts with the creation of Adam on day six, and when Adam was in his 130th year he had a son named Seth who had the next son to join this exclusive lineage in his 105th year. The totals are simply added until we get to the bottom of chart one and the man who was saved from the world wide deluge, Noah, because he was perfect in his generations, meaning that he was a product of the seed line of faith from Adam which would lead to the promised Messiah.
geneologies-chart-1Noah was 600 years old when the flood came upon the earth in the Creation Year 1656. Our next chart picks up the genealogy of faith two years after the flood waters abated when Noah’s grandson is born to Shem, for whom the Semitic peoples are named. The genealogy is continued to the Messiah in the beginning of the book of Matthew. The Matthew Genealogy however is not dated therefore not helpful for our purposes here.
geneologies-chart-2The second chart ends with the birth of Isaac to Abraham at 100 years of age and the year 2049 from the Genesis One Creation. This Genealogy Era of bible chronology is probably the least disputed in its conclusion beyond 1 or 2 years and the debate over averaging. It is my belief the Bible Genealogies were counted inclusively, meaning that if Adam was 129 years and six months old when he begat Seth it was recorded as 130 years.

Unlike the modern practice of counting ages exclusively, with inclusive counting the totals are self averaging. I have been asked about this and even thought it a concern when I began this project. Perhaps to better wrap your mind around this concept we would say that Seth was born in the 130th year of Adams life. But finally, or first of all we are handling the Word of God and maybe should accept the total as presented.

There are a few other debates such as the Genesis Gap theory and whether the genealogy starts after sin entered etc., but these spring primarily from conjecture rather the the plain reading of the text so would only render an inconclusive result, therefore are not worthy of the serious bible students time.

Birth of Isaac to Exodus Riddle
This era is where I got stumped early on in my investigation so many years ago and put the research on the back burner. But in my continued Bible teaching ministry I kept coming across clues that I had to bookmark in my mind which seemed to be pieces of a puzzle that when taken all together would yield a complete picture of the era between Isaac and the Exodus from Egypt. I believe that if I show you all of the pieces you will also agree that God perhaps concealed this era in a riddle, but provided more than enough evidence to yield a sure conclusion. So lets individually examine all of the pieces and see what happens when we put them all together.

Piece #1 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. Gal 3:16-17
Here Paul dates the time from the promises, recorded at Genesis 12:1-3 until the Law in the Exodus as 430 years. Paul seems to state this as it were common knowledge among the Pharisees, of which he was one.

Piece #2 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land [that is] not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; Gen 15:13
This period seems to contradict the first clue, but take notice that this prophecy concerns Abraham’s seed. His seed starting with Isaac, would be strangers and captives, cannot mean that the total captivity in Egypt was 400 years, for both Isaac and Jacob were strangers in land that was not theirs, then Jacobs family finally entered Egypt as free men. Because I don’t believe that God’s word contradicts itself I must consider a more exact reading of the text, and thereby conclude that all of the circumstances listed would happen to Abraham’s seed and culminate with a period of servitude over a total four hundred year period.  Was the period of time that Israel dwelt in Egypt actually 430 or even 400 years as commonly believed? No! Was the period of their servitude 400 years? No!

Piece #3 They were not forced into servitude until a Pharaoh “which knew not Joseph” arose. The Bible confirms the Egyptian sojourn could not have even approached 350 years: Gen 46:8 …And these [are] the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt, …(v.11) And the sons of Levi; Gershon, Kohath,… So after arriving in Egypt, Kohath had a son named Amram and lived 133 years (Exo. 6:18). In turn, Amram had a son named Moses and lived 137 years (Exo. 6:20). And Moses was 80 years old when the Exodus took place (Exo. 7:7)

Moses grandfather, Kohath was born before Jacobs family entered Egypt, and he died there at 133. His son and Moses father, Amram was born in Egypt, begat Moses, and later died at 137 before the Exodus which took place when Moses was 80. When simply added these total 350 years. Because we are not given exact details we know there are undetermined overlaps, therefore we know the actual years spent in Egypt would be much less than the 350 year total.

Piece #4 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. (Genesis 12:4)
Another seemingly contradictory piece. How does the fact that Abram departed Haran at 75, had Isaac at age 100 reconcile the difference between the 400 and 430 year periods given? It does not!

Again, more exact reading is required as I found in my search for more clues. I remembered that God called Abram out of Ur of the Chaldees, so while he left Haran at seventy-five, he must have left Ur before that. Consider the following search for Ur in the book of Genesis:
genURsearchHaran, Abraham’s brother, who was Lots father died in Ur. Abram left Ur of the Chaldees with his father, Terah and their households including his nephew Lot and moved to Canaan where they named their new hometown after the dearly departed Haran. Abraham left his Father and family in Haran five years later with his nephew Lot. “So Abram departed” Ur five years before he departed Haran, and thirty years before Isaac was born. So he would have been seventy when he received the promises in Ur, and departed Haran five years later at age seventy-five.
genUchartPiece #5 One more piece: Isaac is born to Abraham at age one-hundred; Jacob is born to Isaac at age sixty (Gen 25.26); Jacob enters Egypt at age one-hundred-thirty (Gen 47.9). At Genesis 47.9 Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.Chart-Isaac-ExodusI believe that Jacob was actually bragging about his longevity as the Egyptians were not living that long, but God had another purpose for including this boast in His Word! When we take these clues and graph them out we come up with an incontrovertible conclusion: The time period from the Birth of Isaac to the Egyptian Exodus totaled four hundred years.

Exodus to Solomon’s 4th Year
This is one of the simplest eras of our chronology as it is all given to us in one verse, 480 years:
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. (1Kings 6:1)

The Kings of Israel – Judah
So we have come to the fourth year of the reign of Solomon where he begins to build the Temple and the year 2929 SC (Since Creation). The chronicle records that Solomon reigned forty years, subtracting the four prior counted years we start by adding his remaining thirty-six. Thereafter we simply add the reigns of the successive kings which are also counted inclusively, so they too are self averaging as we previously concluded for the genealogies.
Kings-chart-1
One only needs to be careful when going through the books of the Kings not to include the Northern Kingdom, but to exclusively follow the reigns of the Kings of Judah to come to an accurate count at the Babylonian desolation.

Kings-chart-2
The Babylonian Desolation of Jerusalem and the Temple occur about BCE 586 and the year 3359 Since Creation. From this point we begin to synchronize with our Common Era Roman Calendar. The more points that we can synchronize together the more sure will be our result.

Before we move on I would like to take a little time to discuss the Common Era Calendars.

The Roman Julian Calendar

The Roman Calendar introduced by Julius Caesar was the prototype of the Roman Calendar used by the nations today.

“The then existing calendar was a lunar one with extra months slipped in from time to time in an attempt to adjust it. In Caesar’s time this calendar is three months out in relation to the seasons. On the advice of Sosigenes, a learned astronomer from Alexandria, Caesar adds ninety days to the year 46 [BCE] and starts a new calendar on 1 January 45 BC. Sosigenes advises Caesar that the length of the solar year is 365 days and six hours. The natural solution is to add a day every fourth year, introducing the concept of the leap year. The extra day is added to February, the shortest of the Roman months.” historyworld.net

We note two points from this bit of history:
1. Rome separated the months from the moon cycles.
2. The establishment of the Roman Common Era calendar had nothing to do with the birth of Christ.

The annual dating that we continue to use today was introduced at Rome about 525 by the monk Dionysius Exiguus as Anno Domini (A.D.) while working on his “Easter Tables to date from the incarnation of Christ”. however, modern scholars and even the Roman Catholic Church acknowledge that the birth of Jesus was a few years earlier than the date he determined to be 1 AD. No correction was ever attempted.

The Roman Gregorian Calendar

“By the 16th century the seemingly minor error in the Julian calendar (estimating the solar year to be 11 minutes and 14 seconds shorter than it actually is) has accumulated to a ten day discrepancy between the calendar and reality.
…Pope Gregory XIII employs a German Jesuit and astronomer, Christopher Clavius, to find a solution. Calculating that the error amounts to three days in 400 years, Clavius suggests an ingenious adjustment.
…Gregory puts the proposal into immediate effect in the papal states, announcing that the day after October 4 in 1582 will be October 15 – thus saving the lost ten days.” historyworld.net

Another leap day formula is added on a hundred year scale to correct this error. Happily, this minor ten day error and correction does verify the accuracy of the year count of the Julian Calendar to that date.

An additional and arbitrary change introduced with the Vatican’s Gregorian Calendar was the change from the biblically established New Year in the Spring to the present New Year of Janus. This is self evident by the numbered names of the months, September, October, November, and December which are respectively defined seventh-month, eighth- month, ninth-month and tenth-month, meaning that the eleventh and twelfth-month used to follow December, the tenth-month.

And he shall … think to change times and laws: (Dan 7:25)

As to the flap over the AD vs. CE terminology, I do not consider the Vatican’s Gregorian Calendar to be the denomination of the years of Jesus the Messiah. The calendar and sabbath given to the Hebrew Nation at the Exodus has been phased out with the two Roman Calendar introductions. My Jesus is the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world, and Johns Gospel records that all things were made by Him and through Him. Of this we may be assured, that when Jesus returns we will not be using the Vatican’s Roman Gregorian Calendar.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. (John 1:1-3)

The Jewish Calendar

The Jewish Calendar has the date 5775 AM (anno mundi: Latin, the year of the earth) for the CE. year 2014-2015. One of the problems with the Jewish Calendar is how Daniels Seventy Weeks are calculated. They do agree that Daniels 70 weeks total 490 years, so that’s not the problem. The problem is where they fix the starting and ending point of those 490 years.

The wise Rabbi’s fix the starting point with the Babylonian Desolation of the First Temple, they then fix the ending point with the Roman Desolation of the Second Temple. “Desolation to Desolation.” But in the real world that time period was actually about 165 years longer than the 490 years of Daniel’s seventy weeks.
Chart-Jewish-Calendar

The red (dark) areas mark the Jewish Calendar omissions which include the seventy years from the Babylonian desolation of the Temple until its rebuilding and the fifty-eight years until the decree of Artaxerxes to restore and rebuild the city Jerusalem, the prophesied beginning of the final seventy weeks determined upon the Jewish people and upon the holy city. Also omitted are the 36.5 years from the end of the 70 weeks until the Roman Desolation. Simply adding the 165 year omissions charted above puts a corrected Jewish Calendar within several years of my calculation for the current year Since Creation. I did not feel compelled to further investigate the Jewish Calendar due to this seemingly intentional error, but that is another story.

The Creation-Roman Calendar Synchrony

At the first row below we have followed an explicit Bible Chronology to the year 3359 and the Babylonian Desolation of the city and the Temple which are also historically dated BCE-586. At the time of this writing I have already completed and published my WHAT YEAR IS IT Video on my CrossTheBorder.org website, and for the first time simply entered the above three BCE Roman dates in an internet search.

Chart-Synchrony-A

It is that easy for anyone to verify the dates that we are using to synchronize the ancient biblical chronology with the present Roman dating system. BCE dating is a recent invention created only for the purpose of historical dating to the Roman Calendar. There was never in reality any such year as a BCE year before about 525 AD when the common era numerical year dating system was invented.

Countdown to the Messiah

Daniel 9:24 gives the Hebrew Nation a 483 year countdown to the year that the Messiah would arrive on the scene (column 2 row 3 of our next table). Luke records that Jesus began to be about 30 years old when he was revealed as the Messiah at the Jordan River baptism. (From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old shalt thou number them, every one that entereth into the service, to do the work of the tabernacle of the congregation. Num 4:30)

Chart-Synchrony-B

Three and a half years later the Messiah is crucified, by no coincidence it is forty years before the total Desolation of the Temple and the Nation by the Roman army, the people of the prince that shall come, as foretold by Daniel and Jesus. If any period of time deserves the title, “Time of Jacob’s Trouble” it would be this forty years. And if those days had not been shortened no flesh (Jacob) would have been saved, but for the Elect’s sake (those obedient Hebrew’s who would spread the gospel) those days of persecution were shortened to prevent the annihilation of even the elect.

Many try to apply this verse to the days preceding the return of Messiah but this is not logical because the elect will all be resurrected at that time so those days will not need to be shortened for their sake. Because first century Christians were a sect of the Jews it was necessary for the Elect to survive the desolation of the Hebrew Nation at the end of that century.

Summary Charts
Putting all of these points of synchrony together with the former bible eras yields our summary charts bringing us to a conclusion of the present year Since Creation: CE-2015 equals SC-5960 (since creation). We have approximately until the year 2055 before the present era is completed.
Chart-Summary

Are You Ready?
Are you prepared to endure another 40 years until Christ returns?

And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. (Matthew 24:11-14)

I have named my ministry Cross The Border as a reference to the Gospel of the Kingdom which Jesus preached. The Kingdom of God or Heaven is a Holy Nation that transcends all of the borders of the kingdoms of this world, transcends mortality and time, it is the only Kingdom that will last forever. I am not greater than my Master, “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” So I preach and I bid all to cross the border into the Kingdom of God and live forever, there is nothing, absolutely nothing more important in this life. Repent and be baptized in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

How should we as believers respond to these things? We should continue to walk in the Spirit and be led by the Spirit. Our Creator calls His Elect to obey to His commandments, allow His Holy Spirit to bring forth the fruit of repentance in your life, “the good works which God has before ordained that we might walk in them.” If you cannot obey Him now, how do you think He will lead you when the time is critical? Learn to trust and obey Him now and you will be able to hear and obey Him through this Global Great Depression, coming world conflicts and Mark of the Beast Inquisition. Cross the Border into His Kingdom, obey the King and live forever, nothing is more important!

But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. (Mat 23:13)

  1. Nicklas,

    Gen 15:18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:
    Gal 3:17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.

    Gen 15:13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs

    Exo 12:40 Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years.
    Exo 12:41 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.

    The sojourning in the land began when Abram entered the land of Canaan at 75 years of age. Heb 11:8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. Heb 11:9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:

    Abram 75 years old when he entered the Land of Canaan and received the Promise
    Isaac born 25 years later
    Jacob born when Isaac is 60 years old
    Jacob enters into Egypt when he is 130
    25+60+130 = 215 years, 215 +215 = 430
    49 * 50 = 2450 Year of Jubilee

    Gen 15:13 and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
    Gen 21:8 And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isaac was weaned.
    Gal 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
    Gal 4:29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.

    This is when Ishmael mocked Isaac when Isaac turned 5 years old. Ishmael was half Jewish and half Egyptian. 55 years later Jacob is born. 55 + 130 = 185, 185 + 215 = 400

    Starting at 26 AD:
    26 – 483 = 457 BC
    3971 – 483 = 3488

    457 – 128 = 585 BC
    3488 – 128 = 3360

    585 – 430 = 1015 BC
    3360 – 430 = 2930

    1015 – 480 = 1495 BC (Exodus)
    2930 – 480 = 2450 (Year of Jubilee)

    1495 – 430 = 1925 BC God’s Covenant with Abram
    2450 – 430 = 2020

    1495 – 400 = 1895 BC The beginning of the affliction when Ishmael mocked Isaac
    2450 – 400 = 2050

    1925 – 75 = 2000 BC Year of Abrams Birth
    2020 – 75 = 1945

    2000 – 290 = 2290 BC Year of the Flood
    1945 – 290 = 1655

    2290 – 1655 = 3945 BC Seventh Day of Creation, The day after God created man
    1655 – 1655 = 0

  2. Robert wrote, “Then, in his 70th year, 2018AM, 1874BC, while still in Canaan,— God “called” him to “Return to Haran”.—He did!”

    Chapter 13 Verse 20 Abram returned and went to Haran —- Abram dwelt in Haran for five years. Verses 17-19 None of these say that God called Abram back to Haran. God keeps calling Abram out of Haran but, Abram keeps returning to Haran.

    Verse 24 God tells Abram to return back to Canaan. Verse 26 Abram returns to Canaan at age 75.

    Gen 12:4  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. 
    Gen 15:18  In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: 

    After Abram departed Haran and returned to Canaan at 75 years of age, he went to Egypt. Abram returns to Canaan, where Lot and Abram separates. later, Abram rescues Lot and then meets Melchizedek. Gen 12-14

    Genesis Chapter 15 God confirms a Covenant with Abram.

    Gen 15:13  And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; 
    Gen 21:8  And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isaac was weaned. 
    Gen 21:9  And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking. 
    This mocking in Gen 21:9 is the start of the 400 years of affliction. It is not when Isaac is born but, when Isaac is weaned that the affliction started. Abram would be 105 years old, 30 years after God made a Covenant with Abram, when Abram was 75 years old.

        1. My study is not about the Jewish calendar, but about the timeline found in the Bible. I did find the “desolation to desolation” error and deemed the Jewish calendar unworthy to investigate further at that point.

        2. Dear Sir,
          Your essay said that only 70+58+ 36.5=164.5 year , say 165 year is missing in current Jewish calendar. In other words, the corrected jewish calendar should be the current jewish calendar plus 164.5 year.
          e.g.
          2014 -15 AD is equal to corrected jewish calendar year 5775 + 165 year =5940 year .
          2055 AD will be current jewish calendar year 5816 + 165 year =5981 year.

          Your essay conclusion said that 2055 AD = 6000 SC.
          How do you make this conclusion?

    1. That Abram came out of Ur 5 yrs. before he left Haran at 75, can only be arrived at by deduction to reconcile the differences between the “seemingly conflicting” scriptures involved, as I have done in my article here. This is all the information we have to determine that there was a 5 yr. interval between departures.

    2. While it cannot be shown, by what we commonly accept as ‘Scripture’, we certainly CAN find the full story about where they lived when Abraham and his father Terah came out of Ur of Chaldees in 2000AM, 1892BCE. At that time Abraham was 52yrs old and his father Terah, was 122yrs old when they found that Haran was a good place to rest..

      This full story CAN be found in one of the 280 Jewish accounts that were Not included in our ‘Holy Bible’, The Book of Jasher. This particular Jewish Book of Jasher was NOT included when St. Jerome compiled his “Vulgate Bible” ca. 420 AD, some say,—simply because there is NO reference in it to the coming of the Messiah,Jesus Christ.

      For this reason we are deprived of the full story in our current Holy Scripture,—to our day!

      The Book of Jasher,—available online,—tells the expanded version of Abraham’s life and times,—in those ancient times. For example,—

      Chapter 13 verse 1— straight-out states—“And Terah took his son Abram and his his grandson Lot, the son of Haran and Sarai his daughter-in-law, the wife of Abram,and all the souls of his household and went with them from Ur Casdim to go to the land of Canaan. And when they came as far as the land of Haran they remained there, for it was exceedingly good pasture,and of sufficient extent for those who accompanied them.” That was in 2000AM, 1892BCE.

      Then,—Chapter 13 verse 3—“And Abram remained in the land 3yrs, and at the expiration of 3yrs the Lord appeared to Abram…..and said go!…” etc. That was in 2003AM, 1189BCE.

      Then—Chapter 13 verse 6—“And Abram cam into he land of Canaan and dwelt in the midst of the city….”.ect.

      Then—Chapter 13 verse 9—“At the end of 3yrs…” etc.That was in 2006AM, 1886BCE, when Noah died, in Canaan, 350 years after the Flood, in 1656AM, 2236BCE!

      Then—Chapter 13 verse 11—“In the 5th year—the people of Sodom and Gomorrah,—all revolted…..”etc. That was—2011AM, 1881BCE.

      Then later—in Abram’s 7Oth year,—2018AM, 1874BCE,—while still in Canaan:—“The call” of “The Promise Covenant”, was given.

      So, it is quite obvious that the Book of Jasher, a detailed historical version of our Book of Genesis,—should have been included in our Holy Bible when St. Jerome compiled The Vulgate Bible,

And when they came as far as the land of Haran they remained there, for it was exceedingly good land for pasture, and of sufficient extent for those who accompanied them.
        King James Gen 11:31 And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son’s son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram’s wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.

        Chapter 13 Verse 5, Arise now, take thy wife and all belonging to thee and go to the land of Canaan and remain there, and I will there be unto thee for a God, and I will bless thee. And Abram rose and took his wife and all belonging to him, and he went to the land of Canaan as the Lord had told him; and Abram was fifty years old when he went from Haran. 1995 AM, 1950 BC

        Chapter 13 Verse 17, And it was in the fifteenth year of Abram’s dwelling in the land of Canaan, which is the seventieth year of the life of Abram, and the Lord appeared to Abram in that year and he said to him, I am the Lord who brought thee out from Ur Casdim to give thee this land for an inheritance. 2015 AM, 1930 BC

        Chapter 13 Verse 20, At that time Abram returned and went to Haran to see his father and mother, and his father’s household, and Abram and his wife and all belonging to him returned to Haran, and Abram dwelt in Haran five years.

        Chapter 13, Verses 22-26, In those days the Lord appeared to Abram in Haran, and he said to him, Behold, I spoke unto thee these twenty years back saying, Go forth from thy land, from thy birth-place and from thy father’s house, to the land which I have shown thee to give it to thee and to thy children, for there in that land will I bless thee, and make thee a great nation, and make thy name great, and in thee shall the families of the earth be blessed. Now therefore arise, go forth from this place, thou, thy wife, and all belonging to thee, also every one born in thy house and all the souls thou hast made in Haran, and bring them out with thee from here, and rise to return to the land of Canaan. And Abram arose and took his wife Sarai and all belonging to him and all that were born to him in his house and the souls which they had made in Haran, and they came out to go to the land of Canaan. And Abram went and returned to the land of Canaan, according to the word of the Lord. And Lot the son of his brother Haran went with him, and Abram was seventy-five years old when he went forth from Haran to return to the land of Canaan.

        King James Gen 12:4 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. Gen 12:5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.

        Chapter 15
        1 And in that year there was a heavy famine throughout the land of Canaan, and the inhabitants of the land could not remain on account of the famine for it was very grievous.
        2 And Abram and all belonging to him rose and went down to Egypt on account of the famine, and when they were at the brook Mitzraim they remained there some time to rest from the fatigue of the road.

        King James
        Gen 12:10 And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land.

        Chapter 15 Verses 41-47, 41 And Abram said unto Lot, How long wilt thou be to me for a stumbling block with the inhabitants of the land? Now I beseech thee let there be no more quarrelling between us, for we are kinsmen.
        42 But I pray thee separate from me, go and choose a place where thou mayest dwell with thy cattle and all belonging to thee, but Keep thyself at a distance from me, thou and thy household.
        43 And be not afraid in going from me, for if any one do an injury to thee, let me know and I will avenge thy cause from him, only remove from me.
        44 And when Abram had spoken all these words to Lot, then Lot arose and lifted up his eyes toward the plain of Jordan.
        45 And he saw that the whole of this place was well watered, and good for man as well as affording pasture for the cattle.
        46 And Lot went from Abram to that place, and he there pitched his tent and he dwelt in Sodom, and they were separated from each other.
        47 And Abram dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and he pitched his tent there, and Abram remained in that place many years.

        King James
        Gen 13:8  And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren. 
        Gen 13:9  Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left. 
        Gen 13:10  And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar. 
        Gen 13:11  Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other. 
        Gen 13:12  Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom. 

        Chapter 16 Verses 20-21, 20 At that time the Lord again appeared to Abram in Hebron, and he said to him, Do not fear, thy reward is very great before me, for I will not leave thee, until I shall have multiplied thee, and blessed thee and made thy seed like the stars in heaven, which cannot be measured nor numbered.

        God’s Covenant with Abram
        Gen 15:1-21
        Gen 15:17  And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces. 
        Gen 15:18  In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: 2020 AM, 1925 BC

        Each time that Abram was told by God to leave Haran, God told Abram what he would do for him. But, Abram kept returning to his father’s house in Haran. Abram is told at 75 years of age to leave his father’s house and return to Canaan. After returning to Canaan, Abram goes to Egypt because of a famine. He returns to Canaan where he and Lot separate. Abram rescues Lot. Abram is blessed by Adonizedek, which is Melchizedek in the Bible. “The Covenant” or “Promise” is given after Abram is 75 years old.

        From Chapter 13 Verse 5 of the Book of Jasher, Arise now, take thy wife and all belonging to thee and go to the land of Canaan and remain there, and I will there be unto thee for a God, and I will bless thee. And Abram rose and took his wife and all belonging to him, and he went to the land of Canaan as the Lord had told him; and Abram was fifty years old when he went from Haran.

        Abram came into the land of Canaan from Haran at age 50 according to verse 5.

        . And it was in the fifteenth year of Abram’s dwelling in the land of Canaan, which is the seventieth year of the life of Abram, and the Lord appeared to Abram in that year and he said to him, I am the Lord who brought thee out from Ur Casdim to give thee this land for an inheritance.Now therefore walk before me and be perfect and keep my commands, for to thee and to thy seed I will give this land for an inheritance, from the river Mitzraim unto the great river Euphrates.And thou shalt come to thy fathers in peace and in good age, and the fourth generation shall return here in this land and shall inherit it forever; and Abram built an altar, and he called upon the name of the Lord who appeared to him, and he brought up sacrifices upon the altar to the Lord.

        Chapter 13 Verse 20 At that time Abram returned and went to Haran to see his father and mother, and his father’s household, and Abram and his wife and all belonging to him returned to Haran, and Abram dwelt in Haran five years.

        In those days the Lord appeared to Abram in Haran, and he said to him, Behold, I spoke unto thee these twenty years back saying,Go forth from thy land, from thy birth-place and from thy father’s house, to the land which I have shown thee to give it to thee and to thy children, for there in that land will I bless thee, and make thee a great nation, and make thy name great, and in thee shall the families of the earth be blessed.Now therefore arise, go forth from this place, thou, thy wife, and all belonging to thee, also every one born in thy house and all the souls thou hast made in Haran, and bring them out with thee from here, and rise to return to the land of Canaan.And Abram arose and took his wife Sarai and all belonging to him and all that were born to him in his house and the souls which they had made in Haran, and they came out to go to the land of Canaan.And Abram went and returned to the land of Canaan, according to the word of the Lord. And Lot the son of his brother Haran went with him, and Abram was seventy-five years old when he went forth from Haran to return to the land of Canaan.And he came to the land of Canaan according to the word of the Lord to Abram, and he pitched his tent and he dwelt in the plain of Mamre, and with him was Lot his brother’s son, and all belonging to him.And the Lord again appeared to Abram and said, To thy seed will I give this land; and he there built an altar to the Lord who appeared to him, which is still to this day in the plains of Mamre.

        Chapter 13 Verse 26 Abraham was 75 years old when he returned to the land of Canaan. Chapter 14 talks about Rikayon who became Pharaoh. Chapter 15 Abraham goes to Egypt, Abraham and Lot seperates. Chapter 16 Abraham saves Lot and meets Adonizedek king of Jerusalem.

        Chapter 16 verse 19-21 And Lot, his brother’s son, he also sent away with his property, and he went with them, and Lot returned to his home, to Sodom, and Abram and his people returned to their home to the plains of Mamre, which is in Hebron.At that time the Lord again appeared to Abram in Hebron, and he said to him, Do not fear, thy reward is very great before me, for I will not leave thee, until I shall have multiplied thee, and blessed thee and made thy seed like the stars in heaven, which cannot be measured nor numbered. And I will give unto thy seed all these lands that thou seest with thine eyes, to them will I give them for an inheritance forever, only be strong and do not fear, walk before me and be perfect.

        Robert, everything above came from the Book of Jasher. Chapter 16 of the Book of Jasher is where God made the promise with Abraham. From this chapter on, Abraham never returns to Haran.

        King James Bible
        Gen 12:4  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.

        15:13  And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; 
        Gen 15:14  And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance. 
        Gen 15:15  And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age. 
        Gen 15:16  But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full. 
        Gen 15:17  And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces. 
        Gen 15:18  In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

        I am going by the bible and it says in Genesis 15 that Abraham made sacrificies to The Lord. Genesis 15:17 God passed between the pieces. Genesis 15:18 states the the Lord made a Covenant with the Abraham. Again, this was after Abraham was 75 years old..

    you put Iehoiachin/Jehoiachin/Jechonias’ reign in 3348
    BT66 put’s it in 3349
    and 1560Geneva puts it at 3348.53

    [the .5 or 1 yr. difference I allude to the 3 month reign of Ioachaz/Jehoahaz {2Kin23,30} between Iosias’ 31yrs and Eliacim/Jehoiakim’s 11yrs, which occurred in 3337,
    which 3 months you neglect to add in your table and I assume BT66 accounts for as 1 year]

    which brings us all too concurrence to plus/minus 1/2year at the beginning of the 70yr captivity…

    =-==
    towit:
    I believe your main article subscribes to starting the 70yrs at the blinding/chaining of Zedekiah [3359/60]? If so;
    Which scriptures do you use to support that over [3348/9] when;
    a] Iehoiachin and the Mightie carryed to babylon, only the rabble [Zedekiah] were left in Judah…
    b] with ALL the treasure of the temple and the kings house carry’d away
    c] the braking of the vessels which King Solomon made in the Temple
    d] in the last 5 verses of Jeremiah, Jehoiachin is still the ‘king of Judah’ 37 years after as he was anointed the last king of Judah, Zedekiah, was simply a steward [never anointed] as his captor Nabuzar-adan was simply Nebuchadnezzar’s steward

    And I’ll repasted points made elsewhere on this page by me,

    A] Nebuchad-nezzar had already taken anything worthwhile before Zedekiah, ~~~2.Kings24:14 And he caryed away all Ierusalem, and all the princes, and all the strong men of warre, euen ten thousande into captiuitie, and all the workemen, and cunning men: so none remained sauing the poore people of the lande~~~.
    B] for king Zedekiah, Nebuchad-nezzar didn’t even bother to show up, the armies of the chaldee caught the fleeing Zedekiah on a ‘fugitive from justice warrant’ [figuratively speaking].
    C] Later in 2kings25 it talks about “the captivity of Jehoiachin” but not “the captivity of Zedekiah” ~~~2Ki 25:27 And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin~~~… [this is repeated in Jer 52:31]
    D] Est 2:6 points at the captivitie being with Ioachim/Iechonias rather than with Zedekiah.
    E] Jer 22:24-30 points to Coniah [Ioachim/Iechonias] being plucked from Gods ring finger and cast into Babylon [figuratively]… being the last King of Judah

    Any convincing arguements are welcome as I did not find any scriptural arguements in you main article supporting Zedekiah’s blinding/chaining as the start of the
    70yrs captivity

        I will make the cities of Judah desolate, without an inhabitant. Jer 9.

        So, the Babylonian desolation is actually the Judean desolation to Babylon, or the 70yr captivity.

        That still leaves 3 separate ‘desolations’ and most scriptures pointing to when Coniah was desoled from Judah to Babylon, rather than when Zedekiah’s reign ended; for when to start the count of 70yrs.
        Neither your main article nor your replys so far show any scriptural references for your chusing Zedekiah’s end as the proper desolation for beginning of the 70yrs

        If you only count the desolation ‘carrying away’ of the temple items, then at Zedekiah’s end all that was left in the temple was a bit of brass.

        And if one looks to the return of the ‘desolated’ treasure in Zerubbabel’s time [end of 70yrs captivity] one can read of Vast quantities of gold and silver, which only correspond to Jeconiah’s desolation, certainly not the miserly ‘brass bits’ of Zedekiah’s desolation, and even the lesser quantity of desolation of treasure at Jehoiakim’s [called Eliakim]’s time of desolation, is described as less than that of Jeconiah’s desolation to Babylon….

        I shall cease belaboring this point now, as it appears your arguement for Zedekaiah’s desolation marking the beginning of the 70 yrs is not something that you are willing to entertain doubts about.

    3341, Nebuchadnezzar’s 1st yr which is Iehoiakim’s [Eliacim’s] 3rd yr, when Iehoiakim was ‘subserviented/enslaved’ yet reigned still; and Daniel [plus others] and _Part_ of the vessels of the house of god, were taken to Babylon.

    I’m assuming from your most-recent post, which I have partially pasted at the end of this, that you mean to say that this 3341 is the start of the 70yrs captivity.

    2]
    3349, Nebuchadnezzar’s 8th yr, Iehoiachin’s 3rd month, when all of [the rest of] the temple treasures and the king’s treasures were carry’d off to Babylon, and all the vessels which King Solomon had made in the Temple of the Lord were broken.

    I argue that this 3349 is the start of the 70yrs captivity. Admittedly at first soley on the authority of the ‘moste noble Geneva Conclave of 1560’, yet since through study, finding that more verses point more steadfastly towards this than the other two events, do I continue to champion it.

    3]
    3360, Zedekiah’s [Mattaniah’s] 11th year, when no treasures were carry’d away, and besides the blinding of Zedekiah, only the temple and city were burned.

    This one seems to be the most poplular, yet I find it has the weakest arguements.
    I had thought [moste gracious, erudite, and studious Basstracker66] from your prior posts that you meant to say that this was the begining of the 70yrs captivity, but it seems from your most recent post [below] that you only call this ‘the desolation’ and that you are pointing to 3341 as the begining of the 70yrs captivity. Please correct me if I’m wrong…

    =-==
    Also, to others; does anyone introduce any other than the 3 events enumerated above for the ‘start of the 70 yrs captivity’??
    Also, to others; does anyone not concur with the assignment of 3341 & 3349 & 3360 [A.M. ; anno mundi ; ‘year since creation’] to the above biblical events?

    Jehoiakim Reigns in Judah
    2 Kings 23:36 says, Jehoiakim reigned 11 years. 2 Kings 24:1 Nebuchadnezzar came up and Jehoiakim became his slave 3 years. This would be 3341 – 605 B.C. add the remaining 8 years of Jehoiakim’s reign and we come to 3349 – 597 B.C.

    Zedekiah Reigns in Judah

    Fall and Captivity of Judah

    2 King 24:18 Zedekiah reigned 11 years. Add this to 3349 – 597 B.C. and we get 3360 – 586 B.C. This is the desolation or destruction of the temple and the city of Jerusalem. From 3341 -605 B.C. add 70 years and you come to 3411 – 536 B.C. the decree of Cyrus.

    1. in response to 1560Geneva,

      The third year of Jehoiakim was actually 3286AM, 606BC, when Nubuchadnezzar was ‘still’, Prince of Babylon and General commanding Nebopolassar, his father’s Babylonian invading troops, when Daniel, at 15yrs of age was ‘taken’. The next year, Nebopolassar died and Nebochadnezzar was enthroned, as King of Babylon on 7 September of 3287AM, 605BC. So, from THAT date,— 3286AM, 606BC,— Daniel’s ‘Captivity’,—70yrs ‘later’ would be 3356AM, 536BC, which was the year that Zerubabble “Established” the Atlar in Jerusalem, NOT The Second Temple foundation!

      So,—The Second Temple building WAS ‘re-started’ in the 2nd year of Darius, 3372AM, 520BC and “Dedicated’, four years ‘later’, in the 6th year, 3376AM, 516BC, by High-Priest Joshua, who died in 3402AM, 490BC,—the year of “The Battle of Marathon”!

  9. Nicklas, I don’t agree with your Isaac riddle. The promise-covenant was made with Abram when he was 75 years old this started the 430 years to the Exodus. When Isaac was five years old Ishmael mocked him, this started the 400 years of affliction.
    And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land [that is] not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; Gen 15:13 When Sarah died Abram spoke to the sons of Heth saying, I am a stranger and a sojourner with you: give me a possession of a buryingplace with you, that I may bury my dead out of my sight.Gen 23:4 This means Abram was a stranger in the land of Canaan as well.

    The Call of Abram
    Gen 12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: Gen 12:2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: Gen 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. Gen 12:4 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. Gen 12:5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came. Gen 12:6 And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land. Gen 12:7 And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him. Gen 12:8 And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he builded an altar unto the LORD, and called upon the name of the LORD. Gen 12:9 And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.
    Abram, according to Gen 12:4, is seventy five years old when he left Haran and came into the land of Canaan. After entering Canaan, Abram did what is listed below.

    Abram and Sarai in Egypt
    Abram and Lot Separate
    Abram Rescues Lot
    Abram Blessed by Melchizedek
    God’s Covenant with Abram

    Gen 15:1 After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward. Gen 15:2 And Abram said, Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? Gen 15:3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir. Gen 15:4 And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir. Gen 15:5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. Gen 15:6 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness. Gen 15:7 And he said unto him, I am the LORD that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it. Gen 15:8 And he said, Lord GOD, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it? Gen 15:9 And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon. Gen 15:10 And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not. Gen 15:11 And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away. Gen 15:12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him. Gen 15:13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; Gen 15:14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance. Gen 15:15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age. Gen 15:16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full. Gen 15:17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces. Gen 15:18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: Gen 15:19 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, Gen 15:20 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, Gen 15:21 And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.

    In Gen 15:6 Abram believed God or had faith, God counted him righteous. Gen 15:18 In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram. The covenant or promise was made between the Lord and Abram when Abram was seventy five years old. Gen 15:13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;

    Gen 16:3 And Sarai Abram’s wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife. Gen 16:4 And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes. Gen 16:15 And Hagar bare Abram a son: and Abram called his son’s name, which Hagar bare, Ishmael. Gen 16:16 And Abram was fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bare Ishmael to Abram.

    Abram was in the land of Canaan for 10 years when Sarah gave Hagar to Abram. This would be when Abram was 85 years old. Hagar conceived and gave birth to a son named Ismael. Abram was 86 when Ishmael was born. Isaac was mocked when he was 5 years old.

    According to your 2049(Adam to Isaac) and 400(Isaac to Exodus), 2449 would be the year of the Exodus. According to the Book of Jubilees, 2450 is the year of the Exodus. 2450/49 = 50 which would be 50 jubilees from Adam to the Exodus.
    1 And after this law I made known to thee the days of the Sabbaths in the desert of Sin[ai], which 2 is between Elim and Sinai. And I told thee of the Sabbaths of the land on Mount Sinai, and I told thee of the jubilee years in the sabbaths of years: but the year thereof have I not told thee till ye 3 enter the land which ye are to possess. And the land also shall keep its sabbaths while they dwell 4 upon it, and they shall know the jubilee year. Wherefore I have ordained for thee the year-weeks and the years and the jubilees: there are forty-nine jubilees from the days of Adam until this day, [2410 A.M.] and one week and two years: and there are yet forty years to come (lit. ‘distant’) for learning the [2450 A.M.] commandments of the Lord, until they pass over into the land of Canaan, crossing the Jordan to the west.

  11. Greetings Katherine Smith,

    Indeed, 1989AD is the 70th Jubilee from the minus 2 year ‘re-set’ of Hebrew history at Exodus. Let me explain, mathematically.

    Since the Hebrew people apparently ‘used’ the 49 year Jubilee ‘count’,—“From the Beginning”,—in my opinion, we must look for the exact year in which “All Israel was prohibited from ‘entering’ the Promised Land.

    Again, in my opinion, The Exodus was:

    At ‘midnight’ 15 Nisan, 1 April Julian, 19 March, a Saturday!

    In 2448AM, 1444BC. Two years ‘later’ in 2450AM, 1442BC, Moses ‘sent’ the spies’ and they returned with mixed opinions, as we recall. Then, when ‘The people’ refused to take the chance, some, because they were afraid, others, because the were just tired of the ‘hard-life-on-the-road.

    Anyway, “On the Eighth Day” when Aaron & Moses ‘Erected the Tabernacle’ was 1 Nisan of 2450AM, 1442BC.

    Now, 5 X 490 years = 2450 years and since each of the 50 X 49 year Jubilee periods, since Adam’s expulsion HAS ONE extra year ‘count’, you can ‘see’ that IF 2450 years PLUS 50 does, indeed ‘add-to’ the completion of 2500 Lunar Years of the agricultural calendar, which the Hebrew people ‘used’ from the beginning.

    So, since we are told that All Israel, with Mses as ‘Leader’ were to spend another 38 years “In the Wilderness”.

    On 1 Nisan 2450AM 1442BC, in my opinion, is when ‘The Re-set’ of the Hebrew Jubilee count began.

    5880AM, 1989AD was the completion of 70th Jublee, from that ‘re-set’. If this is true we should be able to ‘show’ it is true,—mathematically.

    2450 + 3430 = 5880. 70 X 49 = 3430. 7 X 490 = 3430.

    And that is just the Solar Year ‘count’! The Lunar Year count confirmation is calculated very much like the Solar.

    To do so we need only to ‘add’ 5880 + the 120 Jubilee ‘count’ to ‘get’ exactly 6,000 Lunar Years, (‘IN’ 5,880 Solar Years.

    Therefore, we ‘see that,— “At the Completion”,—of 70 Jubilee 49yr —Solar Years,— is 3,430 years after ‘the re-set’ in 2450AM 1442BC.

    I trust that I have adequately explained this for you.

  12. I just wanted to point out that many Messianics believe 1948 was a Jubilee year, which makes sense because the land was returned to Israel. If that is true, then 1998 would have been the following Jubilee, and 2048 would be the next Jubilee, when Messiah Yeshua (Christ Jesus) returns; that’s in 32 years, very close to your estimate of the beginning of the 7th millennium. I haven’t finished reading your article, but I’m very excited to do so, because it makes perfect sense according to Jubilee, when the land will return to mankind after being held by Satan for 6,000 years–then we will enter into the Shabbat millenium. According to Revelation, Yeshua will reign for 1000 years, then the kingdom will become our eternal rest.

    I also wanted to point out that throughout the book of Daniel and in the Dragon and Beast of Revelation, we see that a man comes before the Antichrist to conquer the Middle East, creating the kingdom that the Antichrist will rule over. This is also true in Islamic prophecy. The kingdom is depicted as being the region of the Seleucids and Ptolemies. ISIS is fitting the description of the Despicable One of Daniel 11 in his violence and religious preferences. Having changed their name to ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and Levant) declares their goal of regaining the Seleucid Empire. I believe the end is very near. Once ISIS gets full control of the area, they will gain legitimacy as a government and they will be able to make (and break) treaties, as is seen in the book of Daniel’s 70th week.

    For a comparison of Biblical prophecies to Islamic prophecies, read the book, “The Dragon and the Beast: Islamic Prophecies in Daniel and Revelation”

        4. I do not agree with 2448 as the Exodus. You sent me the Jewish timeline that you are going by. It is incorrect on the “promise,” not the call, made to Abram. That throws off the count to the Exodus.

          The 430 years of the Kings counts down to the 1st desolation of the Temple and Jerusalem, not to the return decree. And the city was besieged unto the eleventh year of king Zedekiah. 2 Kings 25.2

          The 430 years to the Exodus is from the “promise” not “the call” to Abram at 75 yrs. of age. In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: Gen 15:18 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. Gal. 3:17

          Please read the post at the top of the comments to Nicklas. Then read Genesis Chapters 12-15 and study them. The Call of Abram was when he was 75 yrs.old as well. 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. Gen. 12:4 If you come up with 30 then you are reading something into the scripture.

          C] Later in 2kings25 it talks about “the captivity of Jehoiachin” but not “the captivity of Zedekiah” ~~~2Ki 25:27 And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin~~~… [this is repeated in Jer 52:31]
          D] Est 2:6 points at the captivitie being with Ioachim/Iechonias rather than with Zedekiah.
          E] Jer 22:24,25 points to Coniah [Ioachim/Iechonias] being plucked from Gods ring finger and cast into Babylon [figuratively]…

          contrairi-wise, on your side;
          Jer 1:3 does kind point to Zedekiah, aswell as the passages you pointed out above, and admittedly some others atleast hint so…

          I am still searching for a scripure that precisely says “the prophesied 70yr captivity started with blahblahblah”. But until I find one I will as usuall stick with the writers of the 1560Geneva as they were the greatest conclave of protestant minds ever gathered, imho.

          Daniel Taken to Babylon
          Dan 1:1  In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came unto Jerusalem and besieged it. 
          Dan 1:2  And the Lord gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand with part of the vessels of the house of God which he carried into the land of Shinar to the house of his god, and he brought the vessels into the treasure house of his god. 
          Dan 1:3  And the king spoke unto Ashpenaz the prince of his eunuchs, that he should bring certain of the sons of Israel of the royal lineage of the princes, 
          Dan 1:4  young men in whom there was no blemish whatsoever but who were good looking and taught in all wisdom and wise in knowledge and of good understanding, and that had strength in them to stand in the king’s palace, that they might be taught the letters and speech of the Chaldeans. 
          Dan 1:5  And the king appointed them a daily provision of the king’s food and of the wine which he drank, so nourishing them three years, that at the end thereof they might stand before the king. 
          Dan 1:6  Now among these of the sons of Judah were Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: 

          Dan 1:1 In the third years of the reign of Jehoiakim, this would be the beginning year of captivity. This would be 3341 – 605 B.C.

          Jehoiakim Reigns in Judah
          2Ki 23:36  Jehoiakim was twenty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Zebudah, the daughter of Pedaiah of Rumah. 
          2Ki 23:37  And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his fathers had done. 

          2Ki 24:1  In his time Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, came up, and Jehoiakim became his slave three years; then he turned and rebelled against him. 
          2Ki 24:2  And the LORD sent against him armies of the Chaldees and armies of the Syrians and armies of the Moabites and armies of the sons of Ammon and sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the word of the LORD, which he spoke by his slaves the prophets. 
          2Ki 24:3  Surely at the commandment of the LORD this came upon Judah, to remove them out of his sight, for the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he did 
          2Ki 24:4  and also for the innocent blood that he shed, for he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood, which the LORD would not pardon. 
          2Ki 24:5  Now the rest of the acts of Jehoiakim and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? 
          2Ki 24:6  So Jehoiakim slept with his fathers, and Jehoiachin, his son, reigned in his stead. 
          2Ki 24:7  And the king of Egypt never came out of his land again, for the king of Babylon had taken all that pertained to the king of Egypt from the river of Egypt unto the river Euphrates

          2 Kings 23:36 says, Jehoiakim reigned 11 years. 2 Kings 24:1 Nebuchadnezzar came up and Jehoiakim became his slave 3 years. This would be 3341 – 605 B.C. add the remaining 8 years of Jehoiakim’s reign and we come to 3349 – 597 B.C.

          2Ki 24:17  And the king of Babylon made Mattaniah, his father’s brother, king in his stead and changed his name to Zedekiah. 

          Zedekiah Reigns in Judah
          2Ki 24:18  Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Hamutal, the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah. 
          2Ki 24:19  And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that Jehoiakim had done. 
          2Ki 24:20  For the anger of the LORD was against Jerusalem and Judah until he cast them out from his presence. And Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Babylon. 

          Fall and Captivity of Judah
          2Ki 25:1  And it came to pass in the ninth year of his reign, in the tenth month, in the tenth day of the month, that Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, came, he and all his host, against Jerusalem and pitched against it; and they built forts against it round about. 
          2Ki 25:2  And the city was besieged unto the eleventh year of King Zedekiah. 
          2Ki 25:3  And on the ninth of the month the famine prevailed in the city, and there was no bread for the people of the land. 
          2Ki 25:4  And the city was broken up, and all the men of war fled by night by the way of the gate between the two walls, which is by the king’s garden, with the Chaldees round about the city; and they went by the way of the plain. 
          2Ki 25:5  And the army of the Chaldees pursued after the king and overtook him in the plains of Jericho, after all his army had been scattered from him. 
          2Ki 25:6  So they took the king and brought him up to the king of Babylon to Riblah, and they sentenced him. 
          2Ki 25:7  And they slew the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes and put out the eyes of Zedekiah and bound him with fetters of brass and carried him to Babylon. 
          2Ki 25:8  And in the fifth month, on the seventh of the month, which was the year nineteen of King Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, Nebuzaradan, captain of the guard, a slave of the king of Babylon, came to Jerusalem. 
          2Ki 25:9  And he burnt the house of the LORD and the king’s house and all the houses of Jerusalem, and every great man’s house he burnt with fire. 
          2Ki 25:10  And all the army of the Chaldees, that were with the captain of the guard, broke down the walls of Jerusalem round about. 
          2Ki 25:11  Now the rest of the people that were left in the city and the fugitives that fell away to the king of Babylon, with the remnant of the multitude, Nebuzaradan, the captain of the guard, carried away. 
          2Ki 25:12  But the captain of the guard left of the poor of the land to be vinedressers and husbandmen. 
          2Ki 25:13  And the Chaldees broke in pieces the pillars of brass that were in the house of the LORD and the bases and the brasen sea that was in the house of the LORD and carried the brass of them to Babylon. 
          2Ki 25:14  They also took away the pots and the shovels and the snuffers and the spoons and all the vessels of brass, with which they ministered. 
          2Ki 25:15  And the censers and the bowls and such things as were of gold in gold and of silver in silver the captain of the guard took away, also 
          2Ki 25:16  the two pillars, one sea, and the bases which Solomon had made for the house of the LORD; the brass of all these vessels was without weight. 
          2Ki 25:17  The height of the one pillar was eighteen cubits, and the chapiter upon it was brass; and the height of the chapiter three cubits, and network and pomegranates upon the chapiter round about, all of brass; and the second pillar was like the first with network. 
          2Ki 25:18  And the captain of the guard took Seraiah, the chief priest, and Zephaniah, the second priest, and the three keepers of the door; 
          2Ki 25:19  and out of the city he took a eunuch, that was set over the men of war, and five men of those that were in the king’s presence, who were found in the city, and the principal scribe of the host, who mustered the people of the land, with sixty men of the people of the land that were found in the city. 
          2Ki 25:20  Nebuzaradan, captain of the guard, took these and brought them to the king of Babylon to Riblah. 
          2Ki 25:21  And the king of Babylon smote and slew them at Riblah in the land of Hamath. So Judah was carried away out of their land. 

          2 King 24:18 Zedekiah reigned 11 years. Add this to 3349 – 597 B.C. and we get 3360 – 586 B.C. This is the desolation or destruction of the temple and the city of Jerusalem. From 3341 -605 B.C. add 70 years and you come to 3411 – 536 B.C. the decree of Cyrus.

          The Proclamation of Cyrus
          Ezr 1:1  Now in the first year of Cyrus, king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus, king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom and put it also in writing, saying, 
          Ezr 1:2  Thus saith Cyrus, king of Persia, The LORD God of the heavens has given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and he has charged me to build him a house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. 
          Ezr 1:3  Who is there among you of all his people? Let God be with him and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of the LORD God of Israel (he is God), which is in Jerusalem. 
          Ezr 1:4  And whoever may remain of all the places where they remained a stranger, let the men of his place help him with silver and with gold and with goods and with beasts, with freewill gifts for the house of God that is in Jerusalem. 
          Ezr 1:5  Then rose up the heads of the families of Judah and of Benjamin and the priests and the Levites, of all those whose spirit God woke up to go up to build the house of the LORD which is in Jerusalem. 
          Ezr 1:6  And all those that were about them strengthened their hands with vessels of silver and of gold, with goods and with beasts and with precious things, besides all that was willingly offered. 
          Ezr 1:7  Also Cyrus, the king, brought forth the vessels of the house of the LORD, which Nebuchadnezzar had brought forth out of Jerusalem and had put them in the house of his god. 
          Ezr 1:8  Even those did Cyrus, king of Persia, bring forth by the hand of Mithredath, the treasurer, and numbered them unto Sheshbazzar, the prince of Judah. 
          Ezr 1:9  And this is the number of them: thirty chargers of gold, a thousand chargers of silver, twenty-nine knives, 
          Ezr 1:10  thirty basins of gold, silver basons of a second sort four hundred and ten, and another thousand vessels. 
          Ezr 1:11  All the vessels of gold and of silver were five thousand four hundred. All these did Sheshbazzar cause to be brought up with those that came up from the captivity of Babylon unto Jerusalem.

If the 50th yr. and the 1st year are the same year, then the cycle is only 49 years. So ten jubilees are 490 years just like Daniels’ 70 weeks.

  14. Where does the extra 8 years come from in your timeline. I have added all the timelines in your summary off charts and I get 3944 BCE nor 3952 BCE. 2055 – 5999 = 3944. As I said, the rest of the times in you timeline comes up with the same 3944 BCE. God’s promise to Abraham was when Abraham was 75. This would be 2023 S.C. which would equal to 1739 BCE. Our time is off 136 years. This would make God’s promise to Abraham be in 1875 of God’s time. 3761 BCE + 136 = 3897 in God’s time. Counting down from 3898 to -1 brings us to 136 CE at the end of the Jewish state. There would not be another Jewish state in Israel for 18 Centuries. 1948 CE

      1. Genesis 0AM, is 4004BCE, in Ussher Biblical Chronology.
        Genesis 0AM, is 3761BCE, in Jewish Calendar count.
        Genesis 0AM, is 3892BCE, in Seder Olam.

        With these “Dates” in mind, we can determine that the Ussher date is 112 yeas “Too Many” and the Jewish Calendar count is “Too Short” by 131 years.

        In Seder Olam, Rabbi Akiva claims that Simon ben Kochba, the leader of the “Revolt” in 3892BCE, 132AD, was “The Jewish Messiah”.

        Just over 3 year later in 4026AM, 135AD, when Simon bar Kochba was killed at the battle of Betar, Rabbi Akiva had to admit that, indeed, Simon bar Kochba was not The Messiah.

        At this time, in my opinion, it should be quite obvious and mathematically certain, that, The Jewish Calendar count, to our day, “IS Short” by 131 years. And that Rabbi Akiva’s “Intentional Error” is the ONLY reason that the traditional Jewish Calendar count IS STILL 131 year “Less-than” our present Western Calendar count.

        The AM, “Calendar count should read 4023AM, for 132AD, when Simon bar Kochba was “declared” The Jewish Messiah” and 4026AM, 135AD,for the traditional “date” of the death of Simon bar Kochba.

        Now, if we count these 131 “Missing Years” and the 33/34 “Missing Years” during the Hebrew Co-King reigns between the “death” of King Uzziah, in3142AM, 750BCE, and “The Attack” of King Sennacherib in the 14th year of King Hezekiah, 3191AM, 710BCE, it should be quite obvious that: 131 + 34 = 165, for the total number of “Missing Years” of The Traditional Jewish Calendar count.

        So, what IS the true “Date” for Genesis 0AM, at the “Expulsion” of Adam & Eve from Paradise in the Garden of Eden?…………..0AM, IS indeed, 3892BCE.

What a Rabbi who thought someone was then was not the Messiah has to do with it I cannot seem to determine.

        2. Well Admin,
          It indeed IS,— “just that simple”! 0AM, IS:—3892BC. For the ‘Expulsion’ of Adam & Eve from Paradise in the Garden of Eden.

          “Do” the math! And you shall find:

          There are exactly 5 X 490yrs from “Expulsion” of Adam in 0AM, 3892BC, to 1 Nisan of 2450AM, 1442BC, when Aaron and Moses ‘raised’ the Tabernacle, in the wilderness. That was, just as our Holy Scripture tells us: “In the second year after all of Israel came out of Egypt in 2448AM, 1313BC, (Jewish traditional count), plus 131yrs = 1444BC, (Actual count).

          And, there are exactly 8 X 490yrs from “Expulsion” of Adam & Eve in 0AM, 3892BC, to 3920AM, 29AD, when John Baptized Jesus in the Jordan.

          80 X 49yrs IS 3920 + 80 ‘completed 49yr Jubilee periods does add -up to exactly 4,000 Lunar years?

          As you can read in the “admin” reply of 12/19/2016, (above), in this blog-site 49 Solar years IS 50 Lunar.

          We now know, for certain, that the Hebrew count—“From the beginning ‘used’ this method of interposing an extra month, (Adar II), approximately every 3yrs to keep the Solar calendar count in sync with (Their) Lunar calendar count that was ‘agricultural’ in nature.

And, I continue admit that my calculation may not be exact, but close enough for my purposes.

However, if you do take the official Jewish biblical timeline as recorded in “Codex Judaica” and “The Jewish Time Line Encyclopedia to be within 1 or 2 years, you will be sadly in error by 33/34 years on the AM, timeline and 131/132 years on the BCE, timeline. That IS significant! (33 plus 132 Is 165!) These are the 165 “missing-years” of the Jewish Timeline records.

The Jewish Time-line Encyclopedia, Codex Judaica; Seder Olam and the Book of Jasher record the birth of Abraham in the 70th year of his father Terah in 1948AM, (your SC), and that of Isaac in 2048AM, (your SC), then Esau & Jacob were born in the 60th year of Isaac, 2108SC. And Joseph was born in the 91st year of Jacob in 2199SC

        “Two years after the Flood, when Shem was 100 years, Arphashad was born. Noah was 500 years old when Japheth was born in 1556SC. Ham was born in 1557SC, and Shem was born in 1558SC, exactly 100 years before his own son, “two years after the Flood”.

        Chapter V vs:18 in The Book of Jasher confirms that “And Noah was five-hundred-two years old when Naamah bare Shem…”.

        Codex Judaica has: Yaphet (son of Noah) born in 1556SC, 2205CJ, + 131yrs = 2336BC.
        Codex Judaica has: Cham (son of Noah) born in 1557SC, 2204CJ, + 131yrs = 2235BC.
        Codex Judaica has: Shem (son of Noah) born in 1558SC, 2203CJ + 131yrs = 2334BC.

        Codex Judaica has Abraham’s birth in 1948SC, 1813CJ. (CJ, is the Jewish count), which in my opinion, we should “add” the 131 year “intentional-error” of R.Akiva & R.Yose ben Halafta in 132AD. So, Abraham’s birth, in 1948SC, and 1813CJ + 131 = 1944BC.

        Note: 1948 + 1944 does add to 3892, which again confirms that 3892SC, and not 3952SC, is the correct calculation for your “Sixth day of Adam and my date for Adam’s ‘expulsion’ from Paradise.

Arphaxad therefore was born in 1558SC, NOT 1559SC, The flood came in Noah’s 600th year 1656SC, and Arphaxad was born “two years after the flood in 1658SC and therefore Shem was, by y calculation born in Noah’s 502nd year 1558SC, two years after his eldest brother Japheth, in 1556SC, and one year after the birth of “a younger son of Noah” who was named Ham, born in Noah’s 501st year 1557SC, as you call the elapsed time from Adam. Therefore all of the rest of the right-hand column must be “reduced-by just one year”. Is this clear?

        My original thought was, “Gen.6,3 ‘yet his days [years] shall be a hundred and twenty years [jubilees]'”. 50X120=6000years of mortal life, creation to end of mortal life.
        For we all know there will be no mortals in the millenium, only those enjoying there 2nd life, right? can I get a witness? 🙂
        [lets see how long this can of worms takes].

    1. One comment, remember that the 50 year Jubilee is really only a period of 49 years, being that the 50th year, or Jubilee year is actually the 1st year of the new 49/50 year jubilee cycle. So Jubilee years have to be calculated in 49 year cycles. See Leviticus 25. Since the Jubilee cycle is based upon the 7 year land sabbaths or sabbaticals, counting from a 50 year Jubilee cycle would throw off the continuous seven year sabbatical cycle one year each Jubilee cycle. It would create an accumulated error over a long period of time, which would render future accounting of the Jubilee cycles inaccurate by many years.

        1. Yes,— “those cycles”, —as you say,— in my opinion, did START “When ye come into the land which I give you, then,—shall the land keep a Sabbath unto the Lord”

          Sabbaths,—were NOT ‘kept’ ‘in the wilderness’ during the 40yrs of ‘Wandering’ by Moses and ‘All of the Children of Israel.

          So obviously,– ‘the count’ began with the 6th Sabbath Week which “WAS Celebrated” ‘In the Promised Land” by Joshua and ‘All of the Children of Israel” in 2490AM, 1402BC. Then:—7yrs later ‘On Passover” in 2497AM, 1395BC and exactly 49yrs from Exodus, in 2448AM, 1444BC, the First Jubilee was celebrated in Cannan.

          The Second Jubilee would ‘fall’ on ‘Passover’ 49 Solar years closer to our time in::2546AM, 1346BC,…etc!

          In conclusion, I would remind:—The Exodus, Passover was ‘Midnight’ 1 April (Julian), which corresponds to Jewish 14 Nisan, JDay1194092.5, was when the first born of Egypt died and the Jewish home ‘doorposts’ that were ‘Marked with blood’ were “Passed-Over”.

          And,—remember that while the Sabbath Weeks most likely were,— “Counted”,—but, NOT “Celebrated”, until ‘All of the Children’ were physically “In The Promised Land”, which they did enter on 10 Nisan, 2488AM 1404BC.

      1. Hello David Stearman,

        Having published two books on this 49/50 year Jubilee dispute/debate in 2012AD, I would direct you to:

        1. ISBN: 978-1-4772-2192-1 Chronology of the Hebrew Bible (T’nach): Re-viewed.

        2. ISBN: 978-1-4772-2676-6 The Holy Bible “Chronicle” of Sequential Biblical Events.

        Hebrew history is indeed predicated upon a 49/50 year Solar/Lunar calendar, “from the beginning”.

        That is, as you mention, both, 49 Solar years and 50 Lunar years contain (approx) 18,200 days. You can see that ONE full year of 365 days is “inter-calated” into the 50 year Hebrew Jubilee Lunar, (agricultural), calendar in EACH 49 year Solar, (secular), calendar. This “inter-calation” is accomplished by “inserting” Adar II, an extra month, to keep the Solar/Lunar calendar “aligned”.

        The formula used in reconstructing an “actual count” of the Hebrew Bible timeline is:

        7 X 7 X 10 = 490yrs X 10 = 4,900 Solar Years.
        7 X 7 + 1 = 50 X 10 = 500yrs X 10 = 5,000 Lunar Years.

        Enjoy,

          well, how’s about the manna stuff?

      2. Mr. Stearman wrote: ‘The 50 year Jubilee is really only a period of 49 years’, etc.
        I can’t find any support for that, certainly no direct scriptural quote that says that the 50th years is also the 1st year of the next jubilee [if I take yer meaning right].
        Contrarywise, if “Lev 25:3 Six years thou shalt sow thy field,” holds true, then the supposition that ‘the 50th year is also the 1st year in a 49 year jubilee’ brings on a contradiction in law, or atleast in math, for the 1st 7-year section of all subsequent jubilees….

        1. Perhaps, my statement about “All Israel, while they were ‘wandering’ in the wilderness”, for 38 MORE years did NOT celebrate SIX Sabbath Week ‘celebrations’, which occurred every SEVENTH YEAR. While, Arron, Moses and ‘All Israel’ DID celebrate “PASSOVER” on every SATURDAY of every WEEK of EACH year.

          But, in my opinion, since I maintain that the ‘re-set ‘count’ of “The Sabbath Week”,which originally was counted, “From the Beginning” (Adam’s Expulsion), in 0AM 3761BC, Jewish count plus 131 = 3892BC, Actual’ count,—was ‘re’set’ by 18 months when Moses was ‘instructed’ to began that new count ON 1 Nesan instead of 1 Tishri.

          You can ‘see’ this 18 month ‘reset’ shift is recorded in my book “The Holy Bible ‘Chronicle’ of Sequential Biblical Events. published by AuthorHouse (2012AD).
