81. Was Hatshepsut the Queen of Sheba? [Articles]
... not Hatshepsut who is portrayed as the leader of the expedition. A few other problems: I've already said that it's very clear from the reliefs that the myrrh terraces of Punt were not the destination of an overland journey, that they were right there on the shore. Velikovsky identifies these myrrh trees with "almug" trees mentioned in the Bible, and the first thing to say about this is that the term "almug" or "algum" as it occurs in Chronicles in a variant form, is NOT the Hebrew word for myrrh, which is "mor", so there is a superficial obstacle to begin with, but there is no reason to believe, as ...
82. Ezra and Nehemiah in Recent Research [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... . W. Faulstich, History, Harmony, The Exile and Return to structure the arguments of this review article. I shall move from a few general remarks concerning his book to more specific ones while incorporating much of the current research into the Post Exilic Period. Faulstich's book is rather well done considering its fundamentalist point of view regarding the Bible and his idiosyncratic preoccupation with precisely dating every event by means of his computer chronology. While fundamentalist views, academic or religious, can interfere with Biblical interpretation, as do personal idiosyncracies, they do not seem to significantly affect the portion of his study concerning Ezra and Nehemiah which comprises chapters 5 and 6 or pages 98-171. This has ...
83. The Secret Code [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 1 (Fall 1985) Home | Issue Contents IMPORTANT NEW FINDINGS The Secret Code or Hidden Language of the Bible A major breakthrough in the field of Biblical Research in light of the ancient Near Eastern Civilizations After 10 years of extensive research, Thierry Gaudin demonstrates conclusively the existence of Coded Text of Astronomy hidden beneath the narrative of the first five Hebrew books of the Old Testament In doing so, the author takes us back on a journey to the heart of the ancient Near East by showing how Mesopotamian belief and astronomical knowledge became the exclusive building material of the Biblical Edifice Written in the official language of Mesopotamia, where Religion and Science ...
84. Shoshenq and Shishak: A Case of Mistaken Identity [Journals] [SIS Review]
... right of the centre, is almost entirely lost. Although there were originally over 150 name-rings, the number of places listed was somewhat less than this, since some names occupy two (occasionally even three) rings. A discussion of the names which can still be read, and their identification (sometimes speculative) with places known from the Bible or other texts, can be found in Kitchen's very full treatment [7 ]. Although it was suggested in the late 19th century that Shoshenq's list may have been compiled artificially from those left by his predecessors, it is now clear that this is not the case. "In point of fact, Shoshenq's list is the most original ...
85. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... several different tales. 1. Solomon The whole problem starts, of course, with Velikovsky. He seemed to be unaware that Solomon is a fictional character and tried to tie him into real, i.e . Egyptian, history. I was surprised to discover, in the 1980s, in a serious and orthodox French-language serialisation of the Bible, richly illustrated and interspersed with reports of archaeological findings, that there is not a shred of evidence to prove that either David or Solomon were real people, unless we take the El-Amarna correspondence as providing literary proof for David - but Solomon? I still challenge anyone to show an inscription bearing his name, or any trace of the ...
86. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... ), Michael Reade queries my dating of the death of Sennacherib to 405BC, claiming that this would place the Exodus in 630BC, 25 years after the time of Solomon and asks what is the value of erudite argument on such shaky foundations'? An enlightened mainstream Biblical archaeologist would answer Michael Reade most probably as follows: (i ) Bible chronology jumps in pious multiples of 40 years. Thus, the Bible fundamentalist date of Solomon carries no real weight in scholarly circles; (ii) an archaeology for Solomon could never be established beyond doubt. He is either a nostrified character taken from other ancient Near Eastern writings - e.g ., well accessible royal inscriptions - ...
87. The Legends of the Jews: Volume I - Preface [Books]
... Back | Table of Contents | Forward The Legends of the Jews by Louis Ginzberg Translated from the German Manuscript by Henrietta Szold Volume I Bible Times and Characters from the Creation to Jacob To My Brother Asher PREFACE Was sich nie und nirgends hat begeben, das allein veraltet nie. The term Rabbinic was applied to the Jewish Literature of post-Biblical times by those who conceived the Judaism of the later epoch to be something different from the Judaism of the Bible, something actually opposed to it. Such observers held that the Jewish nation ceased to exist with the moment when its political independence was destroyed. For them the Judaism of the later epoch has been a Judaism of the Synagogue, ...
88. Tiglath-pileser versus Pul: Who is Pulling Whose Leg? [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Catastrophism and Ancient History XIV:2 (July 1992) Home | Issue Contents Tiglath-pileser versus Pul:Who is Pulling Whose Leg? Herbert A. Storck The previous comments by A. P. McIntyre comprise chapter four of his book on biblical history. While occasionally insightful this book is basically a spirited argument for the complete inerrancy of the Bible. We are told in the introduction to this book that the only way to properly criticize him is to show the inadequacy of his arguments but not his total faith in the received Word. One can appreciate and perhaps even agree with his complaint that the Biblical account of its own history has not received the kind of honest treatment that ...
89. Cushan Rishathaim [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... waxed and waned at this time and when the Assyrians were strong they intruded over into this area. In this same period the kingdom of Mitanni had degenerated into the rump kingdom of Hanigalbat. It is by means of this brief political sketch of these three periods that we may be aided in choosing our candidate or candidates for Cushan of the Bible. Of these three temporal phases the Early Iron Age is the least likely time for him to have risen to power. During this period Aram Naharaim was divided up into small city states, none of which was predominant. Instead of producing conquerors who could have campaigned elsewhere, they themselves were invaded by the Assyrians from time to time ...
90. Review: <i>Essays on the Patriarchal Narratives</i> by A.R. Millard and D. J. Wiseman, Eds [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... number of articles in the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies Review. He reexamines the archaeological material and finds a possible correlation with Abrahamic times in the Middle Bronze (MB) I era. This- mind you- is a general correlation. It would, however, place Abraham in the early third millennium. But Bimson addresses evidence from within the Bible to support his view. The idea of Abraham in the third millennium has already been broached by Kitchen's The Bible in its World (p .58), with a letter to Biblical Archaeologist (Winter 1981) from Karola Kautz commenting favorably on another article in that publication concerning a possible third millennium sitz im Leben for the patriarch. ...
