Rich:

"In my scheme, or timeline, I have Solomon as a contemporary of Siamun in Egypt(975BC)."

That's pretty standard but, previously you wrote: "Moses 140 years later in 1159BC(Ramses 4)". How do you get from Moses to Solomon in 184 years? What about the period of the Judges? In fact, in Judges 11:26 it states that Israel had been in Canaan for 300 years already since leaving Egypt. I realize that sometimes the Bible can be vague with its dates and even contradictory, but if one is going to try to match persons or events in it with the timeline of Egypt, for one, you are more or less stuck with the math of that Bible. Too much creativity has no place there. I, too, once thought when reading the account of the expedition sent by Ramesses IV to get stone for his building projects, "Wow, so many people--and important ones, too. Why did they all have to go? To the casual observer, it would have looked like a small army--or an exodus!"

But then I recalled a much earlier expedition in the time of Amenemhat I when he traveled to the Wadi Hammamat for stone and probably brought the entire court with him, as well. There they witnessed a miracle, a gazelle giving birth on a slab of stone.
