Concurrent Events in Parallel Time Lines  

    I have made significant changes to the Time-Line by injecting the times of specific known events from Persian records. 

    I have used the 3rd-Year of Jehoiakim (50) 597 BC as a reference that corresponds to 3556 on our Time-Line referred to Seth (2).      

    This pivot point in time changes the date for the First Temple by 38-years to 997, which corresponds to 3155 on our Time-Line.  It changes the history to Adam from 4103-years to 4151-years.   

MOST DIRECT PATH to FIRST TEMPLE

I could no longer ignore a perfectly clear time line from the event of Israel entering into Egypt when Jacob (22) was 130-years of age (Gen 47: 9), followed by 430-years in Egypt (Exo 12: 40,41), followed by 480-years (1 Kings 6: 1) unto the 4th year of Solomon (34).

2238        Gen 27:`          9 - And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage [are] an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.

3668    Exo 12:           40 - Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, [was] four hundred and thirty years.

                                                41 - And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.

3148    1 Kings 6:       1 - And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which [is] the second month, that he began to build the house of the LORD.

3155    THE FIRST TEMPLE

3155    1 Kings 6:       38 - And in the eleventh year, in the month Bul, which [is] the eighth month, was the house finished throughout all the parts thereof, and according to all the fashion of it. So was he seven years in building it.     

 

THE PATH to FIRST TEMPLE thru the JUDGES

The first two events are the same as follows:

2239        Gen 27:`          9 - And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage [are] an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.

2668    Exo 12:           40 - Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, [was] four hundred and thirty years.

41 - And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.

Exo 7:             7 - And Moses [was] fourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and three years old, when they spake unto Pharaoh.

Josh 14:          7 - Forty years old [was] I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadeshbarnea to espy out the land; and I brought him word again as [it was] in mine

2708    Exo 16:           35 - And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan.

2713    Josh 14:          10 - And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he said, these forty and five years, even since the LORD spake this word unto Moses, while [the children of] Israel wandered in the wilderness: and now, lo, I [am] this day fourscore and five years old.

        The two subsequent events takes the time line thru the wandering in the wilderness before crossing over into Jordan and the kings that Joshua fought against (Jos. 12 and 13).

        I believe that the Lord has shown me a parallel time line through the Book of Judges that leads to the same date for the building of the First Temple by King Solomon.  Concurrent events will show the relationship of the Kings that fought against Israel with the time span for the current Judge over Israel. 

        At this point we may add 300-years to the time line to span from 2713 to 3013.

2713 + 300 = 3013      Perhaps the message of Jud 11: 26 is:  You are on the right track to understanding the time spans! ! !

3013    Jud 11 26 - While Israel dwelt in Heshbon and her towns, and in Aroer and her towns, and in all the cities that [be] along by the coasts of Arnon, three hundred years? why therefore did ye not recover [them] within that time?  

        The Lord tells us about a time span without telling us when or how long the happening occurred.  The Book of Job is that kind of mystery.  Caleb is 85-years old when Joshua completes dividing the land in 2713.

           2713    Josh 23:  1 - And it came to pass a long time after that the LORD had given rest unto Israel from all their enemies round about, that Joshua waxed old [and] stricken in age.        

        From this first verse in Josh 23 throughout Josh 24 there is no mention of the span of time.  I believe that God wants us to discover the time span from Josh 23: 1, until the death of Joshua.   Israel prevailed over sixteen kings (Josh 12: 9-24) in a 5-year war, and soit would seem that 12-years was a long time after that/

        Linear regression is referred to the date of the First Temple in 3155, then working backward through Kings Solomon (34), David (33), Saul (the first King), the Judges and Abimelech (made king by the people for 3-years) leaves a remainder of 12-years.  Applying that reasoning we have the death of Joshua in 2725.

           2725   Josh 24:  29 - And it came to pass after these things, that Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, [being] an hundred and ten years old.

        Therefore Joshua (the son of Nun) was born in 2615, and would have been 53-years of age when he left Egypt, 93-years old when he crossed over the Jordan River, and 98-years old when he complete dividing the land.

        Charting the time lines thru the 300-years, from the Book of Judges:

The Book of Judges relates the many stories of concurrent events against Israel during the time the relative Judge was serving God.  The task at hand is to detail the how the stories interact with the Judge during the time span:
