Yes! Let us indeed pray for the unsaved. And let us be willing to be despised and rejected by others for proclaiming the full gospel for the sake of those who will accept it.Archaeologists are making interesting discoveries in the Middle-East uncovering Biblical cities in Israel which support our Bible in these last days. Lets pray people open their eyes, find the truth and come to Jesus Christ as we know he will soon be calling us home.
Bishop Ussher had Adam's creation marked at 4004 B.C. and Abraham's birth at 1996 B.C. I have Adam's creation at 4000 B.C. and Abraham's birth at 1992 B.C.Hi Lujack. Very interesting postings.
Did you use the Handbook of Biblical Chronology by Finegan? If not what sources did you reference?
No. I did not reference Jack Finegan. I followed the Bible. There are 1656 years from Adam's creation to Noah's flood if we literally take the Bible. Noah's flood 2344 B.C. (Genesis 11:10-12:4)Arpachshad born 2342 B.C., Shelah born 2307 B.C., Eber born 2277 B.C., Peleg born 2243 B.C., Reu born 2213 B.C. Serug born 2181 B.C. Nahor born 2151 B.C. Terah Abraham father lives 2122-1917 B.C. (Genesis 11:32 & Genesis 12:4) Abraham was 75 years old when Terah died so Abraham was born in 1992 B.C. Abraham left Haran at age 75.So sorry, I must not have been clear. I asked if you referenced Jack Finegan, not Bishop James Ussher.
Modern time 365.25 days = 1 year. Jewish year= 360 days. 5.25 difference. In 100 years 525 days difference = over one year difference. In 1000 years= over 10 year difference.I can't even imagine how you find all this amazing information Lujack
Your dates are different than the Jewish calendar. Do you know the reason for that. Yours is straight out of the OT isn't it?
Debunking "The Exodus Decoded"Lujack, may I bug you related to this thread?
If you have a clue where I might locate an Egyptian writings that echo the 10 plagues as the Lord prepared his people to be delivered, please tell me
One somewhat related very cool thing is an ancient map of Antarctica from prior to any icecap!! I followed that clue down and actually found a library book with the image. Seems the map, discovered mid 1600s? (my notes aren't handy), was in some monastery with maps from Christopher Columbus. For centuries deemed fanciful, but now that the space satellites can image through ice -- guess what!!
https://www.***********/watch?v=5BZ1hji_ra8Thanks Lujack! I just spotted this thread & will need to print it & line it up (as best I can) with my Usher's wall chart of world history.
Two years ago the Seattle museum had the Egyptian artifacts exhibit and I went to see if I could place Joseph. I'd heard that the old history held to for Egypt had to portray one set of rulers twice. Your research may answer my questions - so thank you again!
One quick question: have you heard of any Egyptian writings about the 10 plagues? I'd heard a pastor reference a poem or something, but can't recall enough to even Google it!
I saw Readyforsupper comment that you were sending your work to various pastors. Maybe you could send it to the pastor who wet my appetite? He is a retired meteorologist, now pastor, named Charles Clough. His ministry is called Bibleframework and he has some papers posted on the Pre-trib website (Drs. T. Ice & T. LaHaye's).
C. Clough makes one excellent historical point that stuck with me, the Egyptians hated intermarriage & so during the 400-yrs slavery (+\-) the Hebrew children could only marry Hebrews!! Such an amazing Savior we have!
