The New Chronology

by Ken Sampson
(Larne. U.K.)

In Akhenaten’s twelfth year the palace at Ugarit in Tyre was partially destroyed by fire. Three thousand years later, a tiny clay tablet was recovered at Amarna from the charred ruins of the palace archive.

The tablet, EA 151 was written to Akhenaten by Abimilku, ruler of Tyre. This tablet records a solar eclipse at Ugarit just as the sun was setting over the Mediterranean Sea. This almost unique event (occurring once in every four thousand years or so) has been calculated ( using astronomy computer programmes) to have taken place in 1012 B.C. - nearly three hundred and thirty years later than the conventional date of Akhenaten’s twelfth year - but exactly when the heretic Pharaoh succeeded his father, Amenhotep III, in the New Chronology.

The Tower of Babel & Ancient Egyptians
by: Anonymous

The Global flood was in 2344 B.C. some 1656 years after Adam's creation (4000 B.C.). The origins of Egyptian civilization according to Bible chronology may have arose this way.
(Genesis 11:1-8, Genesis 10:6 & Genesis 10:13-14)

Mizraim/Djoser lived 2334-2224 B.C. reigning over Egypt 2243-2224 B.C. builds Step Pyramid.

Path-ru-sim lived 2304-2234 B.C. deified as priest Ptah over Pathros (Ezekiel 29:14)Priest Imhotep living in Djoser's reign worshipped Ptah.

Snef-ru lived 2265-2200 B.C. reigning over Egypt 2224-2200 B.C.

Khufu lived 2233-2177 B.C. born at Elephantine reigning over Egypt 2200-2177 B.C.

The Egyptians left Sumer/Shinar in 2243 B.C. This means Mizraim, Pathrusim and Sneferu were present at the Tower of Babel when Sargon/Nimrod had built the Tower. Nimrod was Mizraim's nephew. This means the Step Pyramid was built soon after the Egyptians left Sumer for Africa.

Khufu's father was Snefru, grandfather was Pathru-sim,great-grandfather was Mizraim/Djoser and great-great-grandfather was Ham.

Population Pyramid Chronology
by: Anonymous

There were 8 people who left Noah's ark. Three were women of child bearing age.

2344-2329 B.C. 20-40 people exist. 8 original plus 12-32 babies = 20-40 people.
2329-2314 B.C. 40-80 people now exist.
2314-2299 B.C. 80-160 people now exist.
2299-2284 B.C. 160-500 people....exist.
2284-2269 B.C. 500-1500..........exist.
2269-2254 B.C. 1500-4500.........exist.
2254-2239 B.C. 4500-12000........exist.

Humanity leaves the Tower of Babel in 2243 B.C.

2239-2224 B.C. 12000-36000.......exist.
2224-2209 B.C. 36000-100000......exist.
2209-2194 B.C. 100000-300000.....exist.
2194-2179 B.C. 300000-900000.....exist.

There are 7 Egyptian tribes of 70 listed in the Table of Nations in Genesis chapter 10. Egyptians make up 10% of the world's population.

Zahi Hawass claimed some 20,000 Egyptians worked on the Great Pyramid at Giza, while Herodotus used the inflated 100,000 laborers on the pyramid.

2200-2177 B.C. Khufu son of Snefru 2224-2200 B.C. and grandson of Mizraim/Djoser 2243-2224 B.C.
(Genesis 10:6 & Genesis 13-14)built the Great Pyramid made up of 2,500,000 stone blocks.

The population of Egypt was 30,000-90,000 people. Herodotus claimed the entire Egyptian population worked on Khufu's pyramid.

If there were 5,000 laborers in one years time moving 250 blocks an average worker a year = 125,000 blocks x 20 years = 2,500,000 stone blocks.

According to mathematics Khufu was the son of Snefru,the grandson of Mizraim/Djoser and the great-grandson of Ham.

The Skeleton's in the Closet Exposed
by: Anonymous

The Rhind Papyrus original was written during Amenemhet III reign 1685-1640 B.C. at Itj-Tawy.

The copy was written at Avaris during Hyksos Canaanite king Apepi I 1660-1619 B.C. In his 33rd year, 1627 B.C., the Hyksos chieftain became king one year after queen Sobekneferu 1631-1628 B.C. had died. (Joseph died in 1631 B.C.)

Ahmose 1628-1603 B.C. was a mere boy 10 years old when his brother died, and was only the 'Prince of the South' according to the Rhind Mathematical Papyrus. Ahmose becomes king after defeating Hyksos king Apepi II or Khamudi in 1608 B.C.

Ahmose army defeated the Nubians, and then an anti-Egyptian general Tetian goes to war against Ahmose. Nubians led by Aata then revolt. Hyksos from the north then attack Ahmose forces.

Ahmose promises Egyptians land if they fight in his army. Joseph had bought (Genesis 47:20) all the land for the pharaoh (Senusret III) and some descendents of those who sold their land decided to fight in Ahmose army.

Ahmose first defeats the Nubians, and his army then bypasses Memphis defeating the Hyksos at Heliopis (Biblical On Genesis 41:44-45) and Avaris driving them out of Egypt.

Ahmose destroyed all records of Joseph reigning as an Hebrew governor of Egypt so Thutmose I later arises to power knowing not Joseph. (Exodus 1:8)

The 12th dynasty chronology is proven by Genesis 47:13-17 that there were Canaanite Hyksos in Egypt at Avaris, while an Egyptian king reigned over the rest of the nation (Genesis 41:42-43), while Joseph as governor kept the peace between Egyptians and Canaanites.

The 18th dynasty comes shortly after driving the Hyksos Canaanites out of Egypt in the first Exodus.

Abraham to the Exodus part 4
by: Lujack Skylark

1628-1603 B.C.
Ahmose is just 10 years old when
he lost his father then his brother Kamose in war against the Hyksos/Canaanites. The war started by a hippo's roar waking up the Hyksos chieftain Apepi I from Thebes, 500 miles from Avaris, from a children's story .Ahmose father Seqenenre Tao had died.

This was an Egyptian cover up story since Ahmose won victory over Hyksos/Canaanite king Apepi II or Khamudi in 1608 B.C. Ahmose destroyed all records of Joseph and the Hyksos people's real history in Egypt. We know these Canaanites came into Egypt during Joseph's reign as recorded in Genesis 47:13-17, while Joseph served the Egyptian king (Genesis 41:41) Senusret III.

1603-1582 B.C.
Amenhotep I reign and the Minoans remain in Egypt's delta. Ahmose had driven the Hyksos out of Egypt.(mixed crowd Exodus 12:38)

Egyptian historians reveal 87 years of reign in the Thutmose I-III dynasty. 54 years. 22 Queen Hatshepsut reigns with Thutmose III; and 32 years Thutmose III reigns solo.

Thutmose I and Thutmose II's reigns must equal 33 years. It seems to make more sense if Thutmose I, Thutmose II and queen Hatshepsut's reigns were 54 years and Thutmose III reigned solo 33 years. Why?

1582-1528 B.C.
Thutmose I was the Hebrew male baby killer Hatshepsut's father. (Exodus 1:15-16) Thutmose I would have to die (Exodus 2:23) after Moses fled Egypt. We know princess Hatshepsut found infant Moses.(Exodus 2:5-10)

Moses was born in 1575 B.C. since he was 80 years old in the Exodus in 1495 B.C. Queen Hatshepsut kept the sickly Thutmose II from power. Queen Hatshepsut probably saved Moses life a second time when he fled Egypt in 1535 B.C. Imagine Moses growing up in an Egyptian household where his stepfather Thutmose I hated the Hebrew people. Queen Hatshepsut worshipped the cow goddess Hathor, and the Hebrews later, after the Exodus at Mt. Sinai, worshipped the golden calf.

1528-1495 B.C. reign means Thutmose III born in 1550 B.C. might have been Moses stepbrother. Could this be the reason Thutmose III destroyed all of Hatshepsut's artifacts so late in his reign, because she saved the infant Moses' life?

Thutmose III matches being the Exodus king at 1495 B.C. since Solomon's 4th year mentioned in Bible chronology in these comments scrolling downward shows the reign 1019-979 B.C.

The 4th year is 1015 B.C., some 480 years after the Exodus. (1 Kings 6:1) Thutmose III did not die in 1434 B.C.

Egyptian chronology chart in post your comments scroll downward also shows why Thutmose III is Exodus king. From the beginning of Amenhotep II reign to Shishak entering Egypt are some 521 years. (1 Kings 14:25) Shishak died a few months after attacking Jerusalem in 974 B.C.

The pharaoh before Amenhotep II is pharaoh Thutmose III, the Exodus pharaoh when we add the reign of Egyptian kings together.

Abraham to the Exodus part 3
by: Lujack Skylark

Was there a worldwide famine (Genesis 41:57) in 1704-1697 B.C.? (Genesis 41:54)

Amorite/Babylonian king Abi-Eshuh 1710-1684 B.C. dammed up the Tigris river trying to starve out the Sealanders. Chinese were confronted by what they say were red haired devils to their north and brown skinned devils to their south, searching for food.(Chinese archaelogist however found red haired mummies in western China) Indo-European Aryans invaded India in search for food, and some Minoans settled at Avaris during the global famine.

Hyksos chieftain Sheshi 1702-1699 B.C. settled his people at Avaris. Hyksos chieftain Yakubher name = Yakov/Yakub/Jacob 1699-1690 B.C. reigned peacefully at Avaris. Hyksos chieftain Khyan 1690-1660 B.C. even had trade with Babylon and Crete.

Egyptian king Amenemhet III 1685-1640 B.C. completed Bahr Yusef (Joseph's canal) opening more land for Egyptian cultivation bringing additional prosperity to Egypt. Babylonian slaves were bought in Amorite/Babylonian king Ammi-ditanna's reign 1683-1647 B.C. and completed Joseph's canal.

Egyptian king Amenemhet IV 1640-1631 B.C. reign was peaceful until Joseph died in 1631 B.C.
Hyksos chieftain Apepi I 1660-1619 B.C. had reigned peacefully at Avaris while Joseph was alive.

Joseph died and some Egyptians, angry that Joseph had bought all the land for Senusret III (Genesis 47:20) from their ancestors, revolted and Amenemhet IV dies. The Execration Text bowls were created by some Egyptians cursing foreigners as early as Senusret III's reign.

Egyptian queen Sobekneferu 1631-1628 B.C. and Thebean proclaimed king Kamose 1631-1628 B.C. go to war. Hyksos chieftain Apepi I had slain Kamose father Seqenenre Tao. Hyksos chieftain Apepi I is now king at Avaris after his army wins victory against Kamose, after queen Sobekneferu dies.

Senusret III 1724-1685 B.C.
Joseph, age 17 (Genesis 37:2-36), entered Egypt in 1724 B.C. Senusret II had died. Potiphar the officer of the new pharaoh and captain of the guard chose Joseph as overseer of his house. (Genesis 39:4) The master of the house wife tried seducing Joseph. Joseph was thrown into jail on phony rape charges.

Peaceful Canaanite Hyksos brought their horses into Egypt. Joseph solved the pharaoh Senusret III's dream and Joseph, cleared of the phony rape charges, becomes the second most powerful man in Egypt. (Genesis 41:1-57) Joseph even rode the second chariot. (A horse skeleton was found at Buhen Nubia dated to Senusret III's reign) Jacob, age 130, arrives in Egypt in 1702 B.C. (Genesis 47:9) when a larger group of Canaanite Hyksos came into Egypt at the time of the global famine (Genesis 41:57). He settled at Avaris. They traded their horses for bread. (Genesis 47:13-17)

Jacob lived in Egypt for 17 years. Jacob died at age 147 in 1685 B.C. (Genesis 47:28) Senusret III died a few months later.

UR Chronology
by: Anonymous

Archaeologist Leonard Woolley in his book Excavations of Ur 1954 edition p.15 stated he found Enhedunna's moon priestess temple cup at Ur. She lived around 2350 B.C. according to modern archaeologist but Annapadda the moon priest of Ur is her husband is listed to have reigned around 2500 B.C. according to Sumerian historians.

Following the 326 years from humanity leaving the Tower of Babel to Abraham's UR being destroyed UR's history appears this way.

2243-2163 B.C. Mesannapadda and Annapadda reign over UR. Moon priest Annapadda marries moon priestess Enheduanna Sargon/Nimrod's daughter.

2163-2127 B.C. Meskiagnannar reigns over UR.
2127-2093 B.C. Meskalamdug and Akalamdug graves discovered at the Royal Tombs of UR. UR was quite prosperous before the Gutium take over of UR.

Elamite Chronology
by: Lujack Skylark

Elam, HUL and MASH left the Tower of Babel in 2243 B.C.(Genesis 10:22-23 KJB) Elam's king Luh-ishshan went to war against Sargon/Nimrod and lost.

Luh-ishshan..2243-2196 B.C. loses war with Sargon.
Hishep-ratep.2196-2183 B.C. he and Abalga-MASH forces at Warahshi are decimated by Rimush.
Helu..HUL?...2183-2152 B.C. rejoice upon hearing
Rimush was assassinated by Manishtusu.
Hita.........2152-2118 B.C. signed a military alliance with Naramsin when Naramsin kidnapped his family. Jiroft artifacts appear in Egypt.

Akkadian kings reigned:

Sargon/Nimrod 2243-2187 B.C.
Rimush....... 2187-2178 B.C.
Manishtusu... 2178-2163 B.C.
Naramsin..... 2163-2123 B.C.

Elam's king Kutik-Inshushinak 2118-2093 B.C. brought the Elamites independence briefly.
Elamites are Gutium slaves... 2093-2032 B.C.
Erech king Utu-Khegal reigns. 2032-2025 B.C.

UR-Nammu 2025-2007 B.C. Elamites demand their own independence. First king of UR III's dynasty.
Ur king Shulgi 2007-1960 B.C. fights wars against Elam then creates Elamite foreign legion.
Ur king Bur-Sin 1960-1952 B.C. Elamite legion does a good job defending UR's borders.
Ur king Gimil-Sin 1952-1941 B.C. daughter marries an Elamite prince.
Ur king Ibi-Sin 1941-1917 B.C. Ur is destroyed by Elamite king Kindattu/Chedorlaomer in 1917 B.C. Abraham slays Chedorlaomer in (Genesis 14:17) in Canaan in 1911 B.C.

Elamite king Indattu-Inshushinak I 1911-1898 B.C.
nicknamed "Son of Pepi" came to power in Elam only TWO years after Egyptian king Pepi II had died. Pepi II reigned over Egypt 2007-1913 B.C.

Seems there are interesting correlations linking Hul, Mash and Pepi II together in ancient history.

Where Real Egyptian Chronology matches Bible Chronology
by: Lujack Skylark

There were only 326 years from Sargon/Nimrod beginning reign to Ur III's destruction. There were only 326 years from Peleg's birth to Terah's death as mentioned earlier. How could actual Egyptian history match our Bible?

2243-2224 B.C. King Zoser built the Step Pyramid shortly after the Egyptians left Sumer for Egypt.
2224-2200 B.C. Sneferu built three pyramids.
2200-2177 B.C. Khufu builds Great Pyramid.
2177-2170 B.C. Redejef Khufu's first born son.
2170-2146 B.C. Khafre builds 2nd Giza pyramid.
2146-2120 B.C. Menkaure (Manium in Sumer language)wars with Naramsin 2163-2123 B.C. Builds but does not complete 3rd pyramid at Giza.
2120-2116 B.C. Shepseskaf completes 3rd pyramid.
2116-2109 B.C. General Userkaf reigns.

2109-2097 B.C. Sahure reigns with brother.
2097-2068 B.C. Unas...reigns.
2068-2056 B.C. Teti...reigns.
2056-2007 B.C. Pepi I.reigns.

2099-2092 B.C. Shepseskare reigns.
2092-2085 B.C. Neferefre reigns.
2085-2054 B.C. Niuserre reigns.
2054-2046 B.C. Menkauhor reigns.
2046-2007 B.C. Djedkare reigns. Imports pygmies into Egypt.

Abraham visited Egypt 1917-1916 B.C. since he was in Canaan for 10 years (Genesis 16:3)before Ishmael was born when he was 86 years old (Genesis 16:16) having been born in 1992 B.C. leaving Haran in 1917 B.C. age 75. (Genesis 12:4)Egypt was plagued (Genesis 12:17)just like the Bible stated since Pepi II's government in Memphis fell a few years after Pepi II had died.

Note both Pepi II's daughter Nitocris and Sarah were fair to look upon. (Genesis 12:11)Egyptians liked fair women.

Sumer and Biblical Chronology Match
by: Lujack Skylark

There are 326 years from the beginning of Sargon/ Nimrod's reign to Abraham's Ur destruction. There are 326 years from Pelegs birth to Abraham father Terah's death.

Accad/Akkad/Agade Genesis 10:9-10 city where Sargon/Nimrod reigned over his vast empire..

Sargon/Nimrod...2243-2187 B.C.
Rimush..........2187-2178 B.C.
Manishtushu.....2178-2163 B.C.
Naramsin........2163-2123 B.C. Sumerian poem states the Gutium brought down Naramsin's reign.

Archaeologist Sir Leonard Woolley stated the Gutium reign over Sumer 91 years, Utu-hegal of the Genesis 10:10 city of Erech reigned 7 years and Ur III dynasty existed 108 years.

Gutium......... 2123-2032 B.C
Utu-Khegal..... 2032-2025 B.C.
Ur III dynasty. 2025-1917 B.C.

Sumer and Biblical chronology match.

Peleg born..... 2243 B.C. (Genesis 11:16)
Reu born....... 2213 B.C. (Genesis 11:18)
Serug born..... 2181 B.C. (Genesis 11:20)
Nahor born..... 2151 B.C. (Genesis 11:22)
Terah born..... 2122 B.C. (Genesis 11:24)
Terah lived.... 2122-1917 B.C. (Genesis 11:32)
Abraham born... 1992 B.C. (Genesis 11:32-12:4)
Abrahan was born in the prosperous UR III dynasty.

Biblical Chronology
by: Anonymous

Peleg was born 2243 B.C. (Genesis 11:16)
Reu born...... 2213 B.C. (Genesis 11:18)
Serug born.... 2181 B.C. (Genesis 11:20)
Nahor born.... 2151 B.C. (Genesis 11:22)
Terah born.... 2122 B.C. (Genesis 11:24)
Haran born.... 2052 B.C. (Genesis 11:26)

Abraham is listed only first in importance, not birth order.

Abraham was born when Terah is 130 years old, since Abraham leaves Terah at age 75 upon Terah's death. (Genesis 11:32 & Genesis 12:4)

Abraham born.. 1992 B.C.
Sarah born.... 1982 B.C. (Genesis 17:17)
Haran dies.... 1925 B.C. age 127 some 430 years before the Exodus (1495 B.C.)
Sarah dies.... 1855 B.C. age 127 (Genesis 23:1-2) some 400 before Joshua destroyed Jericho.

Isaac born.... 1892 B.C. (Genesis 17:17)
Jacob born.... 1832 B.C. (Genesis 25:26)

Jacob entered Egypt at age 130 in 1702 B.C. (Genesis 47:9) during the second year of famine.
Joseph age 30 became Egyptian governor. (Genesis 41:40-45) Then there is 7 years of plenty (Genesis 41:24) plus 2 famine years, 30 + 7 + 2 = Joseph was 39 years old when Jacob entered Egypt.

Joseph born... 1741 B.C. lives 1741-1631 B.C.
Moses born.... 1575 B.C. Moses is 80 years old at the time of the Exodus in 1495 B.C.

List zeroes in on Biblical chronology starting with Peleg's birth when mankind leaves the Tower of Babel until the Hebrews leave in the Exodus.

Review of Iron Chronology
by: David

Smelted iron objects appear in Mesopatamia, Anatolia, and Egypt about 1500 B.C. Why not complete the iron list?

(1)Joshua dealt with iron chariots.(Joshua 17:18) Joshua's time in Canaan was 1455-1423 B.C.

(2)Egyptian king Tutankhamen 1406-1396 B.C. was buried with an iron dagger with a golden hilt.

(3)Jabin the Amorite Canaanite 1298-1278 B.C. with 900 iron chariots invaded Israel.(Judges 4:2-3)

(4)Egyptian king Merneptah I 1280-1268 B.C. battle axe with iron blade was found at Ugarit.

Archaeologist do not say much about the iron chariots. Were these chariots outer iron rimmed wheeled only? Did these iron chariots merely turn into rust/dust?

The Hittites knew how to manufacture iron, yet the Hittite chariots were light weight. Chariots made of solid iron were likely heavy weight, so maybe the iron chariot was actually rimmed wheeled only.

Does anyone know what parts were iron on the iron chariot?

Mar 16, 2012
Iron Chronology
by: Lujack Skylark

Hittites began manufacturing Iron around 1500 B.C.
Joshua lived 1533-1423 B.C. Joshua destroyed Jericho in 1455 B.C. Joshua spoke about iron chariots. (Joshua 17:18)

The Israelites would not move from the mountains into the valley because their enemy had iron chariots. (Judges 1:19)

Some archaeologist dispute an early Exodus date stating the Iron Age started around 1200 B.C. so they proclaim the iron spoke about in the books of Joshua and Judges leads them to believe a late Exodus date or no Exodus at all.

Let us review the New Egyptian Chronology list further down in these chronology comments. Egyptian king Tut reigns 1406-1396 B.C.

There in Tut's tomb was discovered an iron dagger with a gold hilt. Maybe there is more iron discoveries waiting to be found.

Amenhotep III's 1462-1424 B.C. tomb had been robbed. Perhaps that tomb might have contained more iron artifacts.

Still seems like the Bible is historically accurate.

House Of Thutmose I - Thutmose III Chronology
by: Anonymous

Solomon's 4th year 969 B.C. + 480 = 1449 B.C.

Old Chronology (1 Kings 6:1)was a 46 year difference from the New Proven Biblical Chronology, showing 1495 B.C. to be the Exodus year.

This means Egyptian king Ahmose Old Chronology reign beginning at 1582 B.C., some 7 years before.
H.W.F. Saggs, in the book The Babylonians, recorded Ahmose reigning in 1575 B.C.
The 1582 B.C. date means 1582 + 46 = 1628 B.C. Ahmose first year of reign.

Ahmose 1628-1603 B.C.
Amenhotep I 1603-1582 B.C.
House of Thutmose I-III 1582-1495 B.C.
Thutmose III being the Exodus pharaoh.

Egyptians historians state Queen Hatshepsut was co-regent with Thutmose III for 22 years, then 32 years Thutmose III reigned solo.
22 + 32 = 54 years total.
87 - 54 = 33 years for Thutmose I and Thutmose II. This does not match the Biblical account.

Thutmose I 1582-1528 B.C. was the Hebrew male baby slayer (Exodus 1:15-16) reigning with Queen Hatshepsut 1550-1528 B.C.; and Thutmose III solo 33 years from 1528-1495 B.C. makes sense. Why?

Queen Hatshepsut's conflict is with her father, Thutmose I, and brother Thutmose II.
Moses flees Egypt in 1535 B.C. at age 40.

Hatshepsut saved Moses life as an infant. Hatshepsut may have helped save Moses in his flight from Thutmose I. Thutmose I would still be alive when Moses fled Egypt (Exodus 2:23) and the sickly Thutmose II would have died, thus Hatshepsut held power over Thutmose II during his entire life.
Thutmose III would still reign solo for 32-33 years.

This indicates Moses was in Egypt at the time Thutmose III was born. They might have been raised like brothers. Imagine when Moses returns to Egypt at age 80, and sees Thutmose III who has hardened his heart against Moses and Moses' God.

It seems like the 87 years from the beginning of Thutmose I reign to the end of Thutmose III's reign might have happened in the way the Bible reflects on Moses's life.

Mitanni Chronology & the Sun Standing Still
by: Anonymous

Mitanni king Shuttarna 1455-1440 B.C. seal was two lions fighting alongside a winged sun. Shuttarna was a comtemporary of Joshua, who had destroyed Jericho in 1455 B.C.

Caleb was 40 years old when Moses lead the Hebrews in the Exodus; and Caleb was 45 years old in the wilderness when the Lord spoke to Moses. Caleb was 85 years old (Joshua 14:10) after the five Amorite kings had been defeated; when Joshua won victory over them due to the sun standing still in the sky (Joshua 10:12-17) for almost 24 hours.

Caleb lived from 1535-1450 B.C.
The Exodus 1495 B.C.
Moses 10 commandments 1490 B.C.
Joshua destroyed Jericho 1455 B.C.
The 5 Amorite king's war is in 1450 B.C. when the sun stood still.

The sun standing still must have occurred early in Amenhotep III's reign 1462-1424 B.C. The Tel Amarna letters from other Canaanite kings about the Hebrew invasion may have taken place shortly afterwards.

Sun artifact seals from ancient kingdoms continue to reflect there was something strange with the sun in Joshua's time, verifying this Biblical event.

Assyrian Kings Erib-Adad & Ashur-Uballit
by: Thomas

Both Amenhotep III 1462-1424 B.C. and Akenaton 1424-1407 B.C. worshiped the SUN and had connections with Assyrian kings Erib-Adad 1441-1414 B.C. and Ashur-Uballit 1413-1376 B.C.

The impact of the SUN remaining in the sky for almost 24 hours (Joshua 10:12-14) had an effect on the Assyrians, too.

Assyrian king Erib-Adad's 1441-1414 B.C. seal impression was a pair of lion griffins holding a large SUN disk.

Assyrian king Ashur-Uballit 1413-1376 B.C. became irate when Egyptian king Akenaton let his messengers wait out in the mid-day SUN for hours before speaking with them. Ashur-Uballit said if Akenaton liked the SUN so much, Akenaton should roast out in the SUN until he died.

It appears Joshua's great day, where the SUN stood still, had an effect on the Assyrians, Canaanites, Egyptians and the mayor of Tyre.

One wonders if the SUN standing still had an effect on other cultures in our world.

Abimilku, Mayor of Tyre & the Sun Connection
by: Daniel

Abimilku was mayor of Tyre during the entire time the Tel Amarna letters were being written. The Tel Amarna letters revealed the Haribu (Hebrew) invasion of Canaan. The Hebrews invaded Canaan in 1455 B.C.

Abimilku expressed his lord is like the SUN in the sky. Egyptian king Amenhotep III 1462-1424 B.C. had gotten the Egyptians to embrace SUN worship, saying he had the power over the SUN, while it was Joshua's GOD who held the SUN in the sky for almost 24 hours. (Joshua 10:12-14)

Abimilku had written Egyptian king Akenaton 1424-1407 B.C. the letter saying his lord is like the SUN in the sky when Akenaton declared the solar SUN god to be the only state religion worship for Egypt, as Akenaton declared monotheism SUN worship embracing the SUN as his own personal god.

Joshua's victory over the Amorites, having the SUN stand still for almost 24 hours, had Egyptians and the mayor of Tyre claiming the SUN god as their god.

Meanwhile, Joshua knew the sun was merely an object of GOD's creation.

How Babylon's Chronology Matches Israel & Egyptian Chronology
by: Anonymous

The Exodus was in 1495 B.C.
Joshua destroys Jericho in 1455 B.C.

Kassite/Babylonian king Kurigalzu I 1448-1439 B.C.
receives letters from Canaanite kings stating the Haribu (Hebrews)are disrupting the Canaanite Babylonian trade route. Kurigalzu I's daughter married Egyptian king Amenhotep III 1462-1424 B.C., who also married the daughter of Mitanni king Shuttarna I 1455-1445 B.C.

Amenhotep III had received the Tel Amarna letters from Canaanite kings stating the Haribu (Hebrews) had invaded Canaan.

Kassite/Babylonian king Kadashman-Enlil II 1438-1429 B.C. sister also marries Egyptian king Amenhotep III 1462-1424 B.C. Amenhotep III so impressed with Kadashman-Enlil sister he marries the daughter as well.

Kassite/Babylonian king Burnaburiash 1428-1399 B.C. pays Egyptian king Akenaton 1424-1407 B.C. tribute. The Babylonians really wanted to trade Babylonian goods for Egyptian gold, yet Akenaton, like his father Amenhotep III, does not trade Babylonians with gold.

Babylon is so far from Israel there are no direct threats. The Aramaen Syrians had originated from Babylon. They posed a threat to king David, yet David defeated the Aramaen Syrian king Hadadezer of Zobah slaying 22,000. (2 Samuel 8:3-5)

David 1059-1019 B.C. victory against the Aramaens stopped the Aramaens from taking over the sickly Assyrian king Ashur-Nasir-Pal I's 1058-1040 B.C. nation. The Assyrian king could only protect his border to the Euphrates river. David's border went to the Euphrates river and no further. (2 Samuel 8:3) Thus the Aramaen threat was briefly gone.

Egyptian king Psusennes I 1099-1049 B.C. is rich, judged by the artifacts found in his tomb. The average Egyptian is poor. Some Egyptians sell themselves into slavery.

Egyptian king Osokhor 1049-1034 B.C. not as rich as Psusennes I.

Egyptian king Siamon 1034-1014 B.C. has good relations with king David. His daughter marries king Solomon, who reigned 1019-979 B.C.

Ancient history is easier to read once the Biblical and Egyptian chronologies are coordinated.

Saul 1099-1059 B.C.
David 1059-1019 B.C.
Solomon 1019-979 B.C.

Ashur-Apal-Ekur 1098-1096 B.C. wars against the Aramaens. Ashur-Bel-Kala 1095-1078 B.C daughter married an Aramaen chieftain. Prince Enlil-Rabi 1077-1071 B.C. seized power. Eriba-Adad 1070-1065 B.C. another Aramaen puppet. Shamshi-Adad 1064-1059 B.C. opens northern trade route.

Ashur-Nasir-Pal 1058-1040 B.C. too sickly. Aramaen Syrians however attack king David and David wins victory. Shalmanesar II 1039-1028 B.C. merchants are under constant Aramaen attacks.

The Lord protected Israel from the Aramaens and Assyrians since they were at constant war with each other.

David Rohl's Chronology
by: Lujack Skylark

David Rohl's chronology doesn't match up with Middle-East history. Egyptian queen Hatshepsut was not the queen of Sheba. They are two different people.

David Rohl makes no attempt to link up Assyrian, Babylonian, Biblical, Egyptian, Hittite and Mitanni true historical links.

The correct chronology is 586 B.C. - the Biblical destruction date of Solomon's temple. Run the reigns of the Judah kings - add backwards Zedekiah to Solomon if necessary or take my word, Solomon's reign is 1019-979 B.C. and go down from there.

The Exodus date would be 1495 B.C. and Solomon's 4th year is 1015 B.C., some 480 years after the Exodus. (1 Kings 6:1)

Start with Amenhotep II reign 24 years not 26 years-we go solo reign starting in 1495 B.C.
Amenhotep II 1495-1471 B.C. ending with Shishak (1 Kings 14:25), who dies in Rehoboam's 5th year 974 B.C. a few months after attacking Jerusalem.

Fill in the reign of Egyptian kings from Amenhotep II to Shishak.

Check where Assyrian, Babylonian, Hittite and Mitanni history interconnect along the Biblical and Egyptian timelines. Egypt's timeline falls in the 521 years from the Exodus to Rehoboam's 5th year, which means the beginning of Amenhotep II's reign until the end of Shishak's reign. Thutmose III being the Exodus pharaoh.

Check the posts scrolling farther down in these comments and the lists are there. Secular historians mock the Judeo/Christian Bible, yet as we witness, ancient history does match the Bible.

Mitanni Chronology part 2
by: John

Mitanni Assyrian vassal Shattura I 1357-1342 B.C. begins rule when Assyrian king Arik-Dan-ill reigns 1363-1350 B.C. at the time Hittite king Muwatallis 1363-1337 B.C. was fighting Egyptian king Seti I 1360-1347 B.C.

Mitanni Assyrian vassal Washashatta 1342-1314 B.C.
comes to reign when Assyrian king Adad-Nirari I 1349-1315 B.C. takes over all Mitanni lands to the Euphrates river.

Mitanni Assyrian vassal Shattura II 1314-1301 B.C.
revolts against Assyrian king Shalmanesar I 1314-1284 B.C.

Hittite king Hattusilas III 1330-1301 B.C. quickly concludes a peace treaty with Egyptian king Ramses II 1347-1280 B.C. in Ramses II 34th year 1313 B.C.

Mitanni lose their small vassal state to Assyrian king Shalmanesar I in 1301 B.C.

Hittite king Tudhaliyas III 1301-1274 B.C. quickly aligns himself with the Amorites living in Syria and the Levant to oppose Shalmanesar I. One Amorite Canaanite chieftain, Jabin, oppresses Israel 1298-1278 B.C.

We discover Mitanni king Tushratta 1445-1406 B.C.
was the first oppressor of Israel in the Book of Judges. (Cushan-Rishathaim Judges 3:8) We also discover Tushratta was Akenaton's uncle.

Assyrian king Ashur-Uballit 1413-1376 B.C., Babylonian king Burnaburiash 1428-1399 B.C.,
Hittite king Suppiluliumas 1428-1392 B.C., all paid Egyptian king Akenaton 1424-1407 B.C. tribute, according to the Tel Amarna letters.

Mar 14, 2012
Mitanni Chronology part 1
by: John

Biblical and Egyptian chronology match not only reveals Akenaton's true reign, the match also helps expose Mitanni history.

Mitanni king Tushratta 1445-1406 B.C. brought Egyptian king Amenhotep III 1462-1424 B.C. war booty from his victory over Hittite king Suppilu-liumas. Tushratta (Cush-Rishathaim Judges 3:8) controls all the land from the Euphrates river to the borders of Egypt when he oppresses Israel 1418-1410 B.C.

Othniel overthrew Tushratta in 1410 B.C. This action caused another round of war with the Hittites. Egyptian king Akenaton 1424-1407 B.C. sent no help for his uncle Tushratta thus making their military alliance worthless.

Hittite king Suppililiumas 1428-1392 B.C. took over the allied Mittani western city states and extended the Hittite empire's borders to Hobah west of Damascus. Hobah was where Abraham had chased his enemies. (Genesis 14:15) The Hittite king honored the Hebrews by not going south of Hobah. Tushratta was slain in a Mitanni civil war occurring soon after the Mitanni western city states fell.

Mitanni king Artatama II 1406-1396 B.C. betrayed his father Tushratta and sided with the Hittites. The Mitanni empire shrunk to the Hanigalbat region and were allied with Carchemish.

Mitanni Hittite vassal Mattiwaza 1396-1357 B.C. the Mitanni revolt against Hittite king Mursilas II 1391-1363 B.C. was put down. Mattiwaza who stayed loyal to the Hittites after fighting Assyrian king Enlil Nirari II 1375-1364 B.C. forces was reinstated.

Hittite Chronology Match part II
by: Anonymous

Hittite king Arunwandas III 1274-1262 B.C. loses even more territory to the Assyrian king Tukulti-Ninurta I 1283-1247 B.C. Assyrians conquer large areas of Syria sending these children of the east to migrate to Lebanon, Israel and Egypt. Gideon would defeat these children of the east Syrians.(Judges 6:3-4) The Syrians fed their bellies with Israel's food stocks.

Egyptian king Amenmesses 1268-1263 B.C. Syrians begin migrating to Egypt.
Seti II 1263-1258 B.C. reign Syrians become more numerous in Egypt's delta.
Merneptah II's reign 1258-1251 B.C. Syrians take advantage of privilages during this cripple Egyptian boy's reign.
Egyptian queen Tausert 1251-1249 B.C. has an affair with her Syrian butler Bay.
The Syrian Irsu 1249-1247 B.C. took over Egypt's government.
Setnakht 1247-1245 B.C. ends Syrian domination.

Hittite king Suppiluliumas II 1262-1237 B.C. Hittites no longer receive Egyptian grain and the Hittite's western borders are now threatened. The Hittites receive grain shipments from Cyprus.
The Sea People's then overrun the Hittite empire in 1237 B.C.
Egyptian king Ramses III 1245-1213 B.C. 8th year of reign.

Hittite king Suppiluliumas I 1428-1392 B.C. had warred with the Mitanni king Tushratta 1445-1406 B.C.
Tushratta is the direct link to Cushan-Rishathaim (Judges 3:8) who controlled Israel 1418-1410 B.C.

Othniel won victory in 1410 B.C.

We get the 1410 B.C. date from How the Book of Judges matches 1 Kings 6:1 from the Exodus to Solomon's 4th year, some 480 years later.

Hittite Chronology Match part I
by: Anonymous

Think about the Hebrew chronology chart matching Egyptian history, since Hittite history can now be matched.

Hittite king Suppiluliumas I 1428-1392 B.C. pays Amenhotep III 1462-1424 B.C. and Akenaton 1424-1407 B.C. tribute. Akenaton's uncle is Tushratta(Cushan-Rishathaim in Judges 3:8).
Tushratta is attacked by Suppiluliumas. Tushratta loses his life in a Mitanni rebellion.

Semenkhare 1407-1406 B.C.

Sup then attacks Egyptian troops in Tut's reign 1406-1396 B.C. Tut's wife then offers to marry Sup's son Zannanza after Tut dies.

Egyptian king Ay 1396-1392 B.C. had Zannanza slain. Plague among Egyptian prisoners of war spreads throughout the Hittite empire. Sup and his son Arunwandas II 1392-1391 B.C. die of plague.

Hittite king Mursilas II 1391-1363 B.C.
Egyptian king Horemheb reigns 1392-1361 B.C. Plague dies down, along with the conflict between the Hittites and Egypt.

Hittite king Muwatallis 1363-1337 B.C.
Egyptian king Ramses I reigns 1361-1360 B.C. Egyptian king Seti I 1360-1347 B.C. and Ramses II 1347-1280 B.C. goes to war against Muwatallis.

Hittite king Mursilas III 1337-1330 B.C. was unstable and was forced out of power by Hittite king Hattusilas III 1330-1301 B.C.
Hattusilas III signed a peace treaty with Ramses II.

Hittite king Tudhaliyas III 1301-1274 B.C. warred against Assyrian king Shalmanesar I 1314-1284 B.C.

Tudhaliyas III made an alliance with the Amorites.
Some Amorites like the Jabin the Amorite/Canaanite attacks Israel.(Judges 4:1-3)
Egyptian king Merneptah I 1280-1268 B.C. sends food to the starving Hittites.

Zedekiah 597-586 B.C. (2 Kings 24:18)

Almost all historians state Solomon's temple was destroyed in 586 B.C. Running down the Judah kings list king Solomon reigned at 1019-979 B.C. Solomon's 4th year is 1015 B.C., some 480 years after (1 Kings 6:1) the Exodus, in 1495 B.C.

Solomon's 4 years = 480 years + 36 more years of reign = 516 years + 5 years Rehoboam = 521 years

We see in 974 B.C. the Shishak invasion. (1 Kings 14:25) in the Egyptian chart. Shishak died a few months after attacking Jerusalem.

We have a complete match up - Thutmose III the Exodus pharaoh, down to Shishak who attacked Jerusalem.

We have a complete match up. The Exodus date down to Solomon's temple destruction in 586 B.C.

Plus we completed the 521 years from the Exodus to Rehoboam's 5th year, and Shishak's invasion with no missing links!

The New Chronology - Egyptian vs. BIblical Chronology
by: Jason

Should you want to check where Egyptian chronology and Hebrew chronology link up, scroll down to Comments for Minoans in Crete, Egypt and Tel Kabri, Canaan part 2. (Jason)

Egyptian king Akenaton's reign 1424-1407 B.C. in Biblical Chronological Time.

Egyptian king Amenhotep III reign 1462-1424 B.C. was the time of the Tel Amarna letters stating the Haribu (Hebrews) had invaded Canaan.

Egyptian king Amenhotep III's reign was the renewal of sun worship. The sun had stood still in the sky for almost 24 hours. (Joshua 10:12-13) Amenhotep III wanted to take credit.

Moses lead the Hebrews out of Egypt in 1495 B.C. Joshua destroys Jericho in 1455 B.C.

Review both chronology charts. You may find the answer you are searching for. Scroll down on "What's New".
