91. The Dating of Hammurabi [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Ancient History (1986) Home | Issue Contents The Dating of Hammurabi D. Hickman Several years ago an article expressed the idea that Hammurabi, king of the first dynasty of Babylon, was a contemporary of David, king of Israel. This conclusion was based upon quotations from the Mari letters cited by Werner Keller in his book, The Bible as History. Keller explained that the years of the kings of Mari were dated and identified by reference to a notable historical event. In particular, he cited three date-formulas which mention the Benjaminites or Benjamites: [1 ] "The year in which Iahdulim went to Hen and laid hands upon the territory of the Benjamites"; " ...

92. The Stratigraphy of Israel [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... evidence to find the true chronology. Some have attempted to supplement the historical record with myths and traditions, and that is certainly a valid approach but for myself I have turned primarily to archaeology, especially that of Israel, or Palestine as it was formerly called. Like Velikovsky, Rohl, James, Bimson and many others I regard the Bible as a useful historical source. I believe it provides a short-cut to correcting chronology. I also believe, like Heinsohn, that attempts by the early historians and archaeologists to match events to the Bible have partly caused the incorrect chronology that we now have. I am going, first, to briefly outline the faulty conventional chronology and some ...

93. "Nemesis" -- A New Idea as Old as the Bible? [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VII:1 (Feb 1985) Home | Issue Contents "Nemesis"- A New Idea as Old as the Bible?Zecharia Sitchin The field of catastrophism has been exposed, since early 1984, to the grandest theories of all: the suggestion that periodic global extinctions could be triggered by a distant celestial object that disrupts the Solar System once every 26 million years or so. Though the beginnings of the idea can be found in other and earlier publications, the unprecedented impetus to the scholarly debate- still raging- was a series of studies in the British scientific weekly, Nature, and especially its Vol. 308 (issue of April ...

... genealogies drew upon a common "Amorite" tradition. To a much lesser extent one may cite a possible connection with Ugaritic genealogical tradition cited earlier, in that Ugarit also comes within the general Amorite influence.[40] Malamat adds: [41] Moreover, these royal genealogies were composed in a technique similar to that known in the Bible, of fictitiously linking historical personages to earlier eponyms in fact representing names of an artificial character, such as tribes or geographical entities as demonstrated by Finkelstein concerning GHD, and Kraus for AKL. What is more, comparison of the Babylonian and Assyrian King lists, headed by essentially identical putative eponyms, indicates a common genealogical tradition, whether ...

... , and (in contrast to I Kings 19:11) say that the Lord was in the earthquake ? Read this part of Exodus and ask yourself: Why on earth would anyone describe an earthquake in such an utterly roundabout fashion ? Actually the tenth plague wasn't the only one to descend on the Egyptians but not the Israelites. The Bible specifically states that plagues 4, 5, 7, did not affect the Israelites (Ex.8 :22/ 9:4 ,6 ,7 / 7:26/ 10:23). In addition plagues 1 and 6 are said only to have affected "the Egyptians"- i.e . the Israelites are ...

... " in this aftermath of the revolt of the Golden Calf. Ruth Mellinkoffs enchanting study of The Horned Moses concludes that St. Jerome's translation of Exodus 34:29 as horned' appears "in keeping with the context and meaning of horned' in the ancient world as well as the metaphorical meaning of horn' and horned' in the Bible. It meant strength, honor, victory, power, divinity, kingship, and salvation..." The scholar-theologians of the Church saw them as "horns of light, or light emanating in the manner of a horn" - an interpretation first suggested by Rashi, the famous eleventh-century Jewish commentator.[8 ] Moses has ...

... . In that time Jewish and Christian chronographers established what today is called comparative world history. It began with the comparative history of Greeks and Jews. This comparison focused on the question if Moses was more ancient than Homer. The basis to decide this contest was written material whose correctness was not doubted. Stratigraphical research to check the dates of Bible and Ilias still had to be waited for another 1,700 years. Since dates used in the Bible simply were earlier than the Greek dates, the latter lost the competition for the earlier periods of civilization. Nevertheless, the Jewish historians of the Persian and Hellenist periods had already taken a tremendous step towards a reasonable chronology, by ...

... title of this essay. Asimov's attacks have little to recommend but his name attached to them. Therefore, on that account, they deserve a reply. He begins by telling the following falsehood. "In 1950, Immanuel Velikovsky, in his book Worlds in Collision attempted to account for the plagues (and for other events described in the Bible) by supposing that the planet Venus had undergone a near collision with the earth. The book created a moderate sensation among the general public for a while, but the reaction of astronomers varied from amusement to anger, and the Velikovskian theory has never, for one moment, been taken seriously either by scientists or by Biblical scholars. ...

... " may then be read as "ru-ud" or "rud." The least problematical reading of "Ninurta" is "Nimrud." The biblical "Nimrod" has always posed a problem, whether he existed or not. If Nimrod was an actual Mesopotamian king, where are his records? If he was mythical, did the Bible create him? The position that parts of the Bible are mythical also considers the content of the Bible to be derivative; from where, then, was the Nimrod "myth" derived? Bible scholars have asked if there are references to Nimrod in Mesopotamian sources- historical or literary- and the closest Assyriologists have found is the Assyrian ...
