Re: 430 or 215 years in Egypt?

In relation to whether the period between Jacob coming to Egypt and the exodus from Egypt was 215 or 430 yrs some one in another group raised the issue of 4 generations in the Genesis 15 verses, which I had not even dealt with in trying to resolve the question. So I thought I would also add my comme...

Re: Shishak Sheshonk or Ramses 2?

Just an update with comments on some more suggested matches between Shishak and Shoshenq 1 which were mentioned in a Bible History Daily article. Names match: "Sheshonq is also referred to in a fragment of his victory stele discovered at Megiddo containing his cartouche." Which of the 2 cartouche na...

Re: Great city of "Asshur" may be Atlantis city & Tiahuanaco?

Thanks. I'm not sure that "Asshur" of the Hamite section is the same as Asshur of the Shemite section. It seems strange that no mention of the cities or great city is made under Asshur in the Shemite section. The verses in the Hamite section may not even mention any land or person name Asshur as it ...

Great city of "Asshur" may be Atlantis city & Tiahuanaco?

I just read someones blog article where they mention a theory about the 4 cities of Asshur of Genesis 10. They follow the usual placement in Assyria. I commented that the cities or city may not be there but somewhere else but they didn't seem very intrigued. So I thought I should rewrite my own piec...

Shishak Sheshonk or Ramses 2?

Shishak is the Egyptian king in the bible who Jeroboam fled to, and who raided Jerusalem in the reign of Rehoboam son of Solomon. The conventional Egyptian chronology corresponds Shishak with Sheshonk I of the 22nd dynasty, and this the the one most important Egyptian-Biblical correspondences in the...

does popes list match emperors list?

A few years ago I discovered that the early popes list seems to match the list of Roman emperors because with a number of them some of the names are similar and the dates roughly the same and they match in sequential order. Critics have claimed that a number of the early popes are attested in chruch...

Goshen is not Fakus area

Rohl said that there is plenty of etymological evidence for Goshen being in the Fakus area. Is this really so? Let's look at the only few places mentioned in the bible where the Hebrews were when they where in Egypt. On (Genesis, Septuagint Exodus) Goshen (Genesis, Exodus) Land of Rameses (Genesis, ...

Chushan-rishthaim as Chammu-rabi?

Chushan-rishthaim as Chammu-rabi? I admit that I am pretty doubtful of this because the name match is maybe not possible and because Hammurabi didn't definitely rule Canaan, and so it is probably wrong, but until there is better evidence for or against this or some other match I can't help liking th...

Re: A Nazareth archaeology report

Thats interesting. I had read claims that Nazareth wasn't a city/polis at the time of Jesus and doesn't have a synagogue, and I had thought maybe Nazareth of Jesus was Nabratein in upper Galilee not the commonly assumed "Nazareth" in lower Galilee. How much evidence is there now that it was a city t...

430 or 215 years in Egypt?

The following is a list of reasons why I favour the period of the Hebrews in Egypt between Joseph and the exodus as 430 years not "215" years. The Massoretic text of Exodus 12:40 says 430 years in Egypt. The Septuagint & Samaritan doesn't mention any "215" years, it only says 430 years in Egypt and ...
