Australian Author rewrites 8th Century BCE Middle Eastern History.
In an article published at King's Calendar Australian Author R.P.BenDedek, (The King's Calendar:The Secret of Qumran), states that 8th Century BCE Middle Eastern history as currently taught, is wrong, because Academics have relied too much on Bible Stories.
Describing Academic vision as too narrow, and accusing historians of failing to go outside their academic boxes, BenDedek, in rewriting selected historical passages, demonstrates that three successive kings of Judah (Israel) are misidentified in the Bible, because their names all look too alike in Hebrew.
He states that the chronological data demonstrates that the Bible is in error in its' references to 'Jotham, (Jehoahaz) Ahaz (Ahaziah) and Hezekiah', three successive Judaean kings who reigned between 742 and 687 BCE.
Maintaining that paucity of Assyrian records has forced Academics to rely on Bible stories, BenDedek states that in doing so, they have compounded the problem.
Whilst neither Academics nor religious believers will be pleased with his re-writing of the Bible, BenDedek maintains that his apologetics are both logical and demonstrably effective.
Having met up with my pen friend we went ‘somewhere’ and there was this big open paved garden type area and there were platforms going nowhere which you ascended by climbing stairs. Through the middle of the paved courtyard-garden ran a little pond. I was fully aware of its existence but so focused was I on taking a good photo that I was walking while looking through the viewfinder of the camera. I fell straight into the pond.
Given the new American President’s desire to actually cause the USA to prosper, and given the number of calls for breaking the regulatory strangle hold that some political bodies have on business and the community, I thought it might be worthwhile republishing this litte tale.
The point in providing these videos on behalf of the Clarion Project is to hopefully assist in getting the word out that the extreme liberal progressive ideology does not represent REALITY when dealing with the politically motivated fundamentalist Islamist plan.
Since 2004 he has been writing academic articles, social commentaries and photographic 'Stories from China' both here at KingsCalendar, and formerly as a contributing columnist at Magic City Morning Star News (Maine USA) where from 2009 to 2015 he was Stand-in Editor. He currently has a column at iPatriot.com and teaches English to Business English and Flight Attendant College Students in Suzhou City Jiangsu Province People's Republic of China.)
BenDedek originally created the site to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.' Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
