61. Jericho Revisited [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History IX:2 (July 1987) Home¦ Issue Contents INTERACTION Jericho Revisited Bruce K. Waltke We cannot escape the fact that the Bible aims to teach that Joshua's oath, that Jericho would not be rebuilt with walls and gates until its builder paid the price with his firstborn (Joshua 6:26), was first fulfilled by Hiel in the time of Ahab (1 Kings 16:34). Michael Sanders [elsewhere in this issue implies that later scribes covered up the fact that the city was indeed rebuilt before then by disguising it as the "City of Palms." The problem lies much deeper than merely a textual change. According to 1 Kings 16:34, Hiel "laid its foundations at the cost of his firstborn son Abiram, and he set up its gates at the cost of his youngest son Segub, in accordance with the word of the Lord, spoken by Joshua son of Nun." if Eglon and others rebuilt its walls and gates, then it seems to me that we ...
62. The Mark Of The Beast [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. XII No. 2 (Spring 1987) Home¦ Issue Contents The Mark Of The Beast Milo Kearney In John's Book of Revelation, the Bible reader is presented with a riddle too elusive to be pinned down and too intriguing to be left alone. A complex of images drawn from the prophecies of Daniel, combined with later symbols of a perplexing nature, its most apparent references are to the world of the Roman Empire.(1) Since Jesus did not return to fulfill these obscure predictions in that period, Christians down through the ages have contrived various ingenious schemes in attempts to fathom Revelation in terms of their own times. The long trail of these abandoned interpretations is an interesting one in itself, winding through the explanations of such scholars as the Mathers (who needlessly alarmed late 17th century Massachusetts with their chiliastic [millenarian prophecies) and littered with such discarded candidates for the Beast of the Apocalypse as Hitler. With such an age-worn tradition behind us, surely it is permitted to scrutinize the puzzle once again, in terms ...
63. An Appendix to My Articles on Hatshepsut and Thutmose III [SIS C&C Review $]
... 3-18 and I:4 (1977), pp. 8-24: "Did Thutmose III Despoil the Temple in Jerusalem.?, SISR II:3 (1977/8), pp. 64- 79.Nearly four decades ago, while spending several years in the Egyptian desert around Cairo as a member of H.M. Forces, during World War II, I used the opportunity to learn more about ancient Egyptian history, and especially the contacts and impact it had with and upon its eastern neighbour, the Land of the Bible. My interest was renewed about ten years after my return to civil life in Israel, when I came across Immanuel Velikovsky's book Ages in Chaos. The way which he replaced the accepted chronology of the ancient Near East by that of the Bible and the new light which this threw on Biblical history fascinated me and I decided to experiment with it. (a) In Velikovsky's reconstruction, the "Queen of Egypt and Ethiopia" who visited King Solomon according to Josephus (known better as the "Queen of Sheba" of ...
64. Review: Act of God, by Graham Phillips [SIS C&C Review $]
... mask would not have been used for Tutankhamun's burial- but why, he asks, did Haremhab, who destroyed all Tutankhamun's monuments, leave his tomb intact? Was this burial linked to KV55? A brief history of the occurrence of the Aten follows and Atenism is compared with early Christianity, showing their similarities. Phillips says Egyptian history makes no mention of Joseph or Moses, the Exodus plagues, day becoming night, or the exodus of half a million people. He then discusses the Biblical references to Egypt and how the early Bible history came to be written, tempered with examples of how the Pentateuch contains copying errors and inconsistencies and so should not be taken too literally. Central to his thesis is his identification of the Apiru as the Hebrews, who in turn are one of the Hyksos tribes. Many were enslaved when the Theban Dynasty XVII conquered the north. He lists Egyptian references to the Apiru and argues that these fit nicely into his chronological framework. He then discusses what might have happened to change Egypt so drastically at the height of her power ...

66. Philistia Ascendant [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... supposedly seafaring nation would disembark and inhabit a land without either a natural harbor or a decent port?" The answer, in a nutshell, is "any port in a storm!" In the time of Abraham and Isaac, Philistines ruled Gerar (Genesis 21:22, 26:1), a city in southern Canaan, near Gaza, which later became one of the five principal cities of Philistia. It is unclear how long the Philistines had occupied Gerar, but it was not their place of origin. The Bible states that they came from Caphtor (1 Chronicles 1:11) and that Caphtor was an island (Jeremiah 47:4). Genesis 10:13-14 says that Mizraim, son of Ham, was the father of "the Casluhim, from whom the Philistines went forth." Because the Philistines came from Caphtor it is assumed that "the Caphtorim" of Deuteronomy 2:23, who wiped out the Avvites and settled on the coast of Canaan, were Philistines. It should be noted, however, that Genesis ...

68. The Answer to Clapham's Question: Revise! [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... years on the basis of one of any number of constructions (some allowing a much shorter chronology) that could be placed on the epitomes of Manetho. 53 At the same time they ignored Herodotus and ever since have been inventing ways to discredit him that are based in the final analysis on nothing more than the original arbitrary selection of the Manethonian framework. If Clapham and more conventional scholars would stop accepting this dogma and applied the same standards of historiography and literary criticism and analysis to the epitomes of Manetho as they do to the Bible, the Manethonian framework and the chronology that is dependent upon it would be quickly junked as untenable. When these chronologies are straightened out, most of what Clapham and other modern Bible commentators have opined about Biblical chronologies and historicity will have to be reconsidered and, no doubt, jettisoned. I agree with Clapham that it is likely, as argued by John van Seters, that the Bible was a late composition. It certainly contains historical distortions designed to bolster the religious and political positions and values of its authors. But it ...
69. Khima and Kesil [SIS C&C Review $]
... deals with violent acts to which the Earth was once subjected: "... Who shut up the sea with doors [barriers when it brake forth..." Who could command the dawn "that it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it". The Lord asks Job: "Canst thou bind the chains [fetters of Khima or loosen the reins of Kesil? Canst thou lead forth the Mazzaroth in its season...?" The Cambridge Bible wonders at the meaning of this passage. Like the King James version it translates Pleiades for Khima, and Orion for Kesil. Mazzaroth is left untranslated. In Amos (5:8) once more Khima and Kesil are mentioned in a verse that reveals the great acts of the Lord who "maketh Khima and Kesil, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them upon the face of the earth.. ...
70. The Bible Through a King James Filter [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Workshop No. 1 (Mar 1978) Home¦ Issue Contents The Bible Through a King James Filter Martin Sieff Preconceptions tend to distort our perception of reality. When Immanuel Velikovsky suggested that a literal reading of the histories, mythologies and descriptive texts of the ancient world offered overwhelming testimony to the witnessing of skyborn catastrophes on a literally global scale by their authors, his suggestion was rejected- one might almost say exorcised- by a tautological declaration. As it was a priori assumed that the regular, uniformitarian processes of the Earth had continued undisturbed throughout historical times, all historical material, from the earliest times, had been viewed through the filter of this assumption and interpreted accordingly. Velikovsky's interpretations were, therefore, "refuted" by explanations and interpretations which had been developed in the first place to explain the material within the unquestioningly accepted uniformitarian framework. In "Worlds in Collision", Velikovsky identified the phenomenon: "...the Book of Isaiah and other books of the Scriptures have been read by millions during the centuries in hundreds of languages ...
