Hello Joe,
I'll refrain comments on the Bible part of your posting (not sure where the line is here.)

I might be wrong, but I don't think anyone disputes, based on his wall inscriptions, that Shoshenq campaigned in Canaan including Rehov.

The thrust of my comments regarded the radio carbon dating in Canaan which yielded a new dating method confirming dates in the 12th to 9th centuries BC. Part of the dating in the referenced articles referred to the fact that villages/cities had been burned presumably by Shoshenq (dated to 943–922 BC by Wikipedia). 1 of these cities was Megiddo, and the Megiddo Stelae, which I glancingly mentioned in my opening post, contains Shoshenq's name which no one disputes, though Paul Ash ignored it.

Do you have any comments on this?

And lastly, Britain's own archeologist "K.A.Kitchen" identified 'the highlands of David' in one of the heiroglyph's on this same wall of Shoshenq's (which describes his Canaan Campaign.

All of this, methinks, makes a pretty darn good case that David's descendents, had continued his 'dynasty' at the time of Shoshenq.... circa 930bc. David, then had ruled at some time prior to that. 931bc is when Thiele dates the death of Solomon (David's son).

      • Joe, In your posting, you quote the bible. Yet, you deleted the postings on Nimrod when Rich started looking at the Hebrew. Might you explain the rules? Do you have them posted somewhere? Toby
