131. The Israel Stele and Yanoam [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the second table, dates for the XII Dynasty, Joshua, Samuel and Tiglath-pileser III are based on Roux, but all other dates are based on a revised Egyptian chronology. If the equation of Dan/Laish with Yanoam/Yanoah is correct, then this clearly provides additional support to Velikovsky's revision of chronology, where Thutmose III and the Amarna period are subsequent to Joshua and Samuel and not prior to them. Table 2 SPECIFIC PERIOD DATED NAME USED DURING THIS PERIOD XII Dynasty 1991-1786 Lusi, Laish Joshua 16:6 1175 Laish II Samuel 24:6 1025 Dan-Jaan Thutmose III After 1025 Yanoam El Amarna After 1025 Yanoam Seti I After 1025 Yanoam Merenptah After 1025 Yanoam Tiglath-pileser III ...
132. Objections to the Revised Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Jehoshaphat, whom the Old Testament praises for his loyalty to the Israelite god, could also have borne this name involving a Hittite goddess? (Presumably for this reason, Velikovsky prefers to read the name as Ebed-Tov', rather than Abdi-hiba - but this reading is universally rejected nowadays). The fundamental objection to the section on the El Amarna letters is that the El Amarna letters clearly presuppose a time when Palestine was divided into a number of city states, each with its own king, whereas in the time of Jehoshaphat and Ahab to which Velikovsky assigns the El Amarna letters, there were simply two kingdoms, Israel in the North and Judah in the South. Thus, ...
133. Editor's Notes [Journals] [SIS Review]
... a superb Late Bronze Age gate, with three courses of ashlar stone followed by a layer of Lebanese cedar, just like the biblical description of Solomon's palace. David also laid considerable importance on Wayne Mitchell's astronomical calculations which locate an eclipse of the sun at Ugarit on 9th May 1012 BC, which he linked to an inscription dated to the Amarna period which has been found there. The debate between the speakers was so lively that there was only limited time for the audience to contribute also. Despite the nominally different positions of the various participants, there was a surprising amount of common ground over the difficulties of the evidence in many areas - and the need to consider revisions to ...
134. Some 'New Chronology' Issues [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... towns of Palestine were subdued, Israel was laid waste etc. This is certainly not a slightly strained proposal' and is supported by one of the world's greatly respected Egyptologists. Redford's paper is well worth reading. The Horemheb/Seti issue has been overstated as usual; what I said was that the only way we can accommodate both the Amarna synchronisms and Shishak/Ramesses' (the previous paragraph makes it clear that I am referring here to the Talmudic tradition of Solomon's father-in-law) is to postulate a period of joint rule between Horemheb and Seti I'. The argument was simply that when a reign (i .e . Ramesses I) intervenes between two other reigns, ...
135. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... ? Well illustrated and highly readable. Cosmic Blueprint by Prof. Paul Davies. Heinemann (1987). The originator of ideas on the creative cosmos', Prof. Paul Davies of Newcastle University is a lucid writer who makes physics simple, dynamic and interesting. This work will appeal to experts and lay people alike. Les Lettres d'El Amarna by William F. Moran: translation from English to French by Dominique Collon and Henri Cazelles. Les Editions du Cerf, 29 bd Latour-Maubourg, Paris (1987). The most up-to-date translation of all the known Amarna letters, this is a quite invaluable source book. It is truly amazing, however, that it was not published ...
136. Forum [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... : 1426 to 822 = 604 ROHL/JAMES: 1426 to 1016 = 410 I leave the reader to decide which of the chronologies comes out closest to the contemporary evidence of the stela! For Bernard's second point concerning the disastrous plague at the end of David's reign - all we can say is thanks for finding another synchronism for our el Amarna/Early Monarchy revision. There was indeed a severe plague in Palestine and Syria during the years of the late 18th and early 19th Dynasties as recorded by the Hittite king Mursilis II. In the new revision the later years of king David correspond with this same period and it is reassuring to find evidence of just such a plague in ...
137. The Dating of the El-Amarna Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Martin Sieff and Peter James: "In Defence of the Revised Chronology", SISR I:2 , pp. 16-7. 15. Margaret S. Drawer: "Syria c. 1550-1400 B.C ." , CAH II, 2. pp. 421-2 - "Hurrian names abound among the rulers of vassal states mentioned in the Amarna letters. The ruler of Jerusalem in the fourteenth century was Abdi-Kheba, who bears a Semitic name but was a devotee of the Hurrian goddess whose worship must have been well established in the Judaean hills." The worship of Hepat was also borrowed by the Hittites. If it should seem strange that there could have been a Hurrian or ...
138. Discussion Questions From the Floor [Journals] [Aeon]
... millennia? Velikovsky has already condensed and recorded many dynasties. Heinsohn hints that work along these lines has only begun. I cannot see how it can be credibly done within the few allowable centuries his scheme leaves to us. Heinsohn must address this, since it seems to be integral to his total plan. 6) If we move the Amarna letters to the seventh century, what does this do with the other Biblical synchronisations, such as Thutmose/Shishak and Sheba/Hatshepsut? These chapters are among the most powerful proofs Velikovsky gives in Ages in Chaos. How can they be voided constructively? And if maintained, what two hundred years can be removed from Biblical records, ...
139. Cushan Rishathaim [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... a candidate for Cushan. It should be noted that this kingdom has been advanced previously as Cushan's place of origin. Hansler developed the position that Cushan came from the kingdom of Mitanni in a series of four articles published in Biblica in 1930 and 1931.11 His nominee for Cushan was Tushratta, the most prominent king of Mitanni in the Amarna Letters. In general the Amarna Letters may be dated to the second quarter of the 14th century B.C . (ca. 1375-1350). If one starts out with a biblical chronology for the Exodus based on I Kings 6.1 , that would put the Exodus sometime around the middle of the 15th century B.C ...
140. Recent Developments in Near Eastern Archaeology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... that we are getting close to the limits of pottery studies to resolve detailed chronology! In conclusion, a clear link between these dated texts, their stratigraphy and the pottery style has eluded us, but the similarity of these Middle Assyrian texts to Neo-Assyrian ones tends to confirm the need for shortening the Assyrian dark age. Clay Analysis of the Amarna Letters New scientific test have been carried out on the clays of some of the Amarna tablets in order to match them to local clay sources in the Near-East, and so help locate some of the places of origin: Y. Goren, I Finkelstein and N. Na'man, Inscribed in Clay: Provenance studies of the Amarna Letters . ...
