"Going back 78 years from 853/852 B.C., the end of Ahabís reign, we get 931/930 B.C. for the beginning of Jeroboam Iís reign, and thus also for the beginning of Rehoboamís reignóand thus also for the end of Solomonís reign. The dates of the kings of Judah give us the same result, keeping in mind that Judah used the accession-year system.2 Add 40 years to 931/930 B.C. and we get the beginning of Solomonís rule at 971/970 B.C."

I wonder. Let's say it really is too late for Psusennes I. According to the Bible, there should be 480 years from *some* exodus to year 4 of Solomon. Taking the round number of 970 BCE, we need 966 plus 480 which equals 1446--time of Amenhotep II by my reckoning. He became pharaoh in 1450 by the high chronology and died of what looks like smallpox 26 years later. So, yes, Rich it is 60 years later--if we look at it like this. Sixty years between an exodus by the math of Eusebius and another by counting retroactively from Ahab's reign.

    Your chronology looks close, with Psusennes I. I have something different. David and Solomon are a little interesting because they mark the end of the archaeologically proven characters in the bible. ... more
