This article relates to the chronological picture painted by the biblical books of Kings and Chronicles. In the First article on this topic, titled: The Chronological History of the Bible Makes No Sense I pointed out that “in addition to not understanding how the biblical chronological data was provided, most people also don’t understand what our academic knowledge of history is composed of.”
The following notes on the Philistines is a direct lift from Chapter 18 of ‘The King’s Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.’ That chapter is divided into Four (4) sections:
1. Revising Dynastic Egyptian History
2. Merneptah’s Place in History
3. The Philistines
4. Saul’s Death & The Lords of The Philistines
If you have been following the political scene in the USA since Donald Trump became President, you will have gathered that there is a great chasm between those on the left and those on the right.
When it comes to the chronological details recorded in the Bible relating to the reigns of the various kings of the two kingdoms (Israel and Judea) there is also a big chasm between those who believe that every single word of the Bible is dictated by God (Bible Contradictions and Learning to Crawl) and those who spend their days trying to prove that the Bible is wrong and therefore is not of God (Biblical Infallibility and Bible Skepticism).
Since the New Website commenced operation I have been republishing old academic articles on the new site but today I am publishing an article not previously posted anywhere. It is not the complete article or complete Chapter from ‘The King’s Calendar: The Secret of Qumran‘ but it does provide some ready to hand information for students of Biblical History and Chronology. I hope you enjoy reading it. – R.P. BenDedek

Over the past year I have transferred some of my Chronology of Ancient Israel articles to this new site Kingscalendar, and you may find a list of those articles HERE.
Many years ago I came across an article relating to the missing years in the history of Israel as portrayed by the Seder Olam Rabbah. I decided to try and apply the King’s Calendar Methodology to the figures and see what happened.
Right now you are probably asking, ‘What the heck is the Seder Olam Rabbah?’ So here is a little information gleaned from a variety of online sources.
If you are new to the King’s Calendar Research, then you would do well to read Synchronous Chronology of Ancient Israel and Judah before proceeding any further. That article on the old site was titled ‘What is the King’s Calendar?’ and explains succinctly the foundation of all articles I write about the Ancient Near East.
The contents of this page were first published many years ago on the old KingsCalendar website. That article was just a tease revealing some of the content of Chapter Twenty (Josephus) of ‘The King’s Calendar: The Secret of Qumran’ research results. I have included a little more information in this edition and also included an extra example for Part Two. In Chapter Twenty introduction of ‘The Secret of Qumran’ it is stated:
This article was first published many years ago on the old website as
Math and Science No. 6 “The Reign of Jehu King of Israel”
It has been edited a little for this presentation.
This article is just a brief discussion on the mathematical principles behind the King’s Calendar determination of the reign of King Jehu of Israel. What is the King’s Calendar?
