Re: Solar eclipse under Pilate

It gets called an ‘eclipse’ although there is no such thing as solar eclipse at full moon, which was the case when Jesus died. So, it would be better described as an extraordinary astronomical event on par with the nativity 'star' or Joshua’s long day. The best known record outside of the gospels wa...

Re: Why Pilate? Because Daniel 9:24-26

Its better than coincidence isn't it? Here is my timeline of the 70 weeks. Note my '7th-year' of Artaxerxes as 457 BC. There is a reason for that, but I won't quibble.

Re: 430 or 215 years in Egypt?

While the Levite genealogy only has 4 generations from Levi to Moses (Levi - Kohath - Amram - Moses), some other tribal genealogies have more generations than that such as the one from Ephraim to Joshua ("10 generations reach from Joshua back to Ephraim: Joseph, Ephraim, Beriah, Repham, Resheph, Te...

Re: The seventy weeks of Daniel 9.24-27.

Cyrus in 538 BC or Artaxerxes 1 in 458/457 BC are the most commonly quoted start dates. I have a paper with my preferred date here:

Happy hunting!
Sorry for coming in late DCH. I’ve got a translation by Joseph Lumpkin (2010) which seems pretty good. Not that I’m a canonical fan.

Ancient Calendar Video

Hi, its been a while since I broached my topic concerning ancient calendar astronomy mentioned in the Bible. Latest is a short video that I’m posting for anyone interested in the subject. It’s about a ’50-year’ festival, akin to our century celebrations, except that it was tied into the old Hebrew r...

Re: Ancient Hebrew Calendar

Slight misunderstanding here Ethan. :eh: You're referencing the count of 50 days that occurred every year from Passover to Pentecost. I'm discussing the Sabbatical years mentioned in chapter 25.

Re: Dead Sea Scrolls Reveal Hidden Calendar

The only confusion I have right now is whether God considers Aviv the first month, or tishrei the first month. This is so important because where does the Enoch calendar actually begin? Hi Halochem. Abib (Aviv) was the 1st month throughout the Old Testament except for a rare Jubilee year that start...

Re: Ancient Hebrew Calendar

One more thing I would like to add to this topic, that might be of interest to some here. Concerning the 1st day of Tishri, yes, it was the New Year start of an exceptional 50th year in the original Hebrew calendar. (Leviticus 25:8-10) But it also seems to have been a reference point for yet another...

Re: Why Jesus descended ''in the 15° year of Tiberius'' ?

Tertulians 12th year is the same as Marcions 15th year when we realise that Marcion (and Luke) were counting from the coregency date. AD 26 is a better fit with other historical data too.
