Jaime, Tory and Kim,

Question,---was 732BC, the 13th year of the Assyrian King Tiglath-Pileser III?

Question,---was 732BC, the death year of Retzin, King of Damascus?

Question,---was 732BC, the death year of Pekah and ac. year of Hoshea as King of Israel?

Question,---was 731BC, the actual death year for Jotham and start of Ahaz as King of Judah for 16 years,---to 715BC?

Question,---was 730BC, the "so-called" 20th year of Jotham?

I contend that some of the answers to these questions may confirm, or be cause for rejection, of my own chronology table for this section in "The Gordian Knot of the Hebrew Kings".
