151. The Queen's Brother. Part 1 (Oedipus and Akhnaton) [Velikovsky]
... was absorbed in his pleasures, in building his capital, in writing his poetry, and in his family life. Scarcely a decade and a half later Akhet-Aton was left for desert sand to cover it. It was not until 1891-92 that, from under the hovels of the gypsy-like migratory settlement of the bedouin clan that bore the name of Amarna, the Petrie expedition slowly uncovered the city of Akhet-Aton. Of the palaces and houses nothing remained above the sand of the desert. One after another places of worship, palaces, sculptors' studios, and places of amusement came to light. The sepulchral chambers, however, had never been concealed from human eyes; these deserted rock ...
152. Solomon, The Exodus and Abraham Related to Egyptian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the shorter biblical chronology would appear very difficult and will not be attempted here. C) Some Further Possible Synchronisms If the chronology outlined above is correct it would be expected to lead to additional synchronisms in between the key points of Solomon, the Exodus and Abraham, and it does: i) King Saul of Israel was Labayu of the Amarna Letters The case for this and other identifications between biblical characters and those in the Amarna Letters has been well put in an article in C & C Review . ii) The Canaanite oppressors at the time of Deborah of the Book of Judges were probably the Hyksos of the Middle Bronze Age In the biblical account [Judges ...
153. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... chronological placement of both in the early 11th century. Shea also accepts the consensus view of biblical scholars that the Exodus and Israelite conquest of Canaan took place in the 13th century. Such events as the siege of Sharuhen under the first 18th Dynasty pharaoh Ahmose, the Asiatic campaigns of Thutmose III and the internecine strife in Syro-Palestine recorded in the Amarna letters are all consigned to the period before the Israelite conquest. On the positive side, he strongly refutes the thesis advanced by Kathleen Kenyon, and supported by Albright, Wright and Yadin, that the MBIIC destructions at Jericho, Tell Beit Mirsim, Megiddo, Hazor and elsewhere were caused by early 18th Dynasty pharaohs. He points to ...
154. Of Lessons, Legacies, and Litmus Tests: A Velikovsky Potpourri (Part One) [Journals] [Aeon]
... . I) pursue the consequences of his theory that some five or six hundred years in the conventional historian's history of Egypt have to be eliminated, so that, for example, Egyptian kings and events which Egyptologists date to the 14th century bc are really to be dated in the 9th century bc One of these consequences is that the so-called Amarna Letters, an archive of more than 350 cuneiform texts found in Egypt about 80 years ago and comprising the international diplomatic correspondence of Egypt in a period that conventional historians date to the 14th century bc are to be dated according to Dr. Velikovsky to the 9th century bc Hundreds of details in scores of Amarna Letters are matched up by ...
155. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... in the Early Bronze Age, at the end of the Egyptian Old Kingdom, with Ramesses II as Shishak. A study of the archaeology of Israelite sites revealed an absence of LB strata which Bob explained was due to the LB period being diagnosed by imported foreign pottery, whereas ordinary people carried on using MB pottery, at least until the Amarna Period in LBIIA. Bob explained in detail with the aid of a theoretical stratigraphy chart, since printed in his Shiloh article in Review XIII . He then turned to an examination of the individual sites of Jerusalem, Jericho, Ai, Shechem, Shiloh, Samaria and Megiddo. The latter two would relate to the Iron ...
156. Response to Bimson [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 7th century who, however, could not be found in the Iron Age strata in which they were sought? A circumstance which has, over the past twenty years, convinced some scholars that the Median Empire never existed at all and that the Greeks made the whole thing up. By the way, the annals of Thutmose III and the Amarna Letters are full of references to the Mitanni nobility (the Indo-Iranian mariyanna), who bear Median/Persian names and who occupy extremely important positions thoughout Syria/Palestine. This alone suggests that the Mita had not much earlier conquered the whole region. Question 3: How does John explain the mountain of evidence of every variety brought forth ...
157. Velikovsky, Fundamentalism and the Revised Chronology [Journals] [Aeon]
... evidence for the mighty Persian Empire of the 1st millennium couldn't be found at all. It quickly became obvious that if Heinsohn was right Biblical history was in peril. For a while I was hopeful that both sides could be accommodated by a synthesis of the competing chronologies. But when Heinsohn withdrew his support for Velikovsky's 9th century placement of the Amarna period, and moved this key epoch of Egyptian history down to the end of the 7th century BCE, it was obvious that hope of a compromise was gone. There was no way to shift Saul, David, Solomon and the Queen of Sheba to the 7th century and keep the accepted chronology of the Bible intact. Somebody was ...
158. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... to answer any of the cogent criticisms raised by him - and no wonder, because for more than five years Bernard Newgrosh has been barking up the wrong tree or, to use a mixed metaphor, exploring a cul-de-sac. As long ago as 1977, SIS Review Vol. II No. 3, Peter James clearly identified Abdi-Heba of the Amarna letters as Jehoram of Judah. This in turn indicates who Labayu was. He was a king of the Northern Kingdom, a contemporary of king Jehosophat who, towards the end of his reign, made two of his sons co-regents. This was no doubt partly because he had virtually four capital cities to administer: Shechem, Tirsah, ...
159. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... well below the solid surface of the Earth. Dating the Tyrian Letters Dear Sir, In Kronos IV:1 , pp. 45-55, Peter James presented us with the following synopsis: 1. Baalazor of Tyre was probably the king referred to as Ba'li-manzer by Shalmaneser III; 2. that the Tyrian letters are amongst the last in the Amarna archive; 3. that the author of the Tyrian letters is unlikely to have been Pygmalion. While I endorse the 3rd point, numbers 1 and 2 are chronologically impossible. (a ) From Josephus (Against Apion) we know the period from Hiram to Pygmalion, and as the lengths of the intervening reigns are also known it ...
160. Was Hatshepsut the Queen of Sheba? [Articles]
... visit the actual place. Dr. Bimson: Oh yes, his source is certainly Naville's plates and Naville is certainly the source of the statement that two thirds is missing, but he has misunderstood how the two thirds are missing. Question: (too faint) Dr. Bimson: I think by the time you get down to the Amarna period and going on into the XIXth Dynasty which I believe has to follow the XVIIIth, and you can't split them the way Velikovsky does, I think you do begin to get correlations that are quite impressive. Peter James has done an article on the Amarna -letters which points to a few good correlations which Velikovsky himself had missed and ...
