LexiLine Journal #94 - 2002 : Biblical Chronology - Eclipses



I have found a new proof of the ca. 28-year error in Biblical chronology.

I have previously written about the error present in Biblical Chronology and thus also present in all of classical Greek and Roman chronology as well. As I already have reported, the German dendrochronologist Ernst Hollstein showed in 1980 that the tree rings in Europe diverged ca. 26 to 30 years from historical chronology.

Unaware of Hollstein's work, Mitchell similarly pointed out that a ca. 26 to 30-year difference is found in trying to reconcile the astronomy of Ptolemy with the Babylonian lists of kings.

Thiele writes for example: "For many years Old Testament scholars have noticed that a total of 128 regnal years for the rulers of Judah from the accession of Athaliah to the end of Azariah ... was about a quarter of a century in excess of the years of contemporary Assyria ...."

In the Bible, Amos 8:9 says "'And on that day,' says the Lord God, 'I will make the Sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight.' This is the alleged 763 BC solar eclipse used by mainstream chronology to "mesh" Biblical and Assyrian chronology. It is the wrong eclipse.

This solar eclipse can not be the solar eclipse of June 15, 763 B.C. according to Starry Night Pro. There is NOTHING at all special about the June 15, 763 BC solar eclipse, which takes place early in the morning and not in the middle of the day, and on no special day.

The eclipse of June 24, 791 BC on the other hand, IS SPECIAL. It takes place at the Summer Solstice during the afternoon, i.e. near the middle of the day and it takes place in terms of totality on a path near Cairo, Egypt.

There is no doubt that the current mainstream use of the June 15, 763 BC eclipse for this biblical date is wrong and that the eclipse of June 24, 791 BC is the right one.

Biblical dating is thus off by ca. 28 years at this point in history.
