Noah's Flood: Bible Stories: Bible accuracy: bible calendars: Bible Patriarchs.According to Antiquities 1:6:5 Abraham was born 292 ARTIFICIAL years after the flood. By this standard the flood occurred in 2184 BCE (unless the data was recorded in true solar years, in which case it will have occurred in 2205 BCE). Josephus reiterates the stipulated Biblical data of 292 years separating the Flood Event and the Birth of Abraham.

From Noah and the Flood to Abraham:
Biblical chronological data.
Enquiries in the now defunct forum section lead me to make available here, some findings of the King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran, regarding the flood, as calculated in accordance with Biblical Data and Josephus. The original Forum entry was titled 'Answers for Trevor concerning the Flood and Nimrod.' Note: This file is a specific answer to member enquiries. A more comprehensive article entitled: From Noah to Creation: How long? was published in December 2006.
1. The Flood and Abraham:
The 'King's Calendar' converts the Biblical (artificial) Data into 'real time.' This does not mean however, that the Biblical data (as handed down to us) for the flood event will be historically correct.
2. Before the Divided Kingdom:
The Biblical chronological information during the period of the Divided Kingdom, is synchronous, so it can be cross referenced.
The records prior to this are less reliable, and there is no way of 'certainly' knowing which chronological records were and were not transcribed into the artificial calendar.
3. Flood Historicity:
In addition to the chronological problem surrounding the 'flood event,' there is also the matter of scientific and theological disagreements surrounding the reality of the event itself.
There are two chronological points of which one ought to be aware.
The first is that Josephus reiterates the stipulated Biblical data of 292 years separating the Flood Event and the Birth of Abraham.
The other is that his individual data for the patriarchs indicates that the time differential was much greater.
[This is actually more in keeping with recent research regarding the creation of the Baltic Sea.
According to Antiquities 1:6:5 Abraham was born 292 ARTIFICIAL years after the flood. By this standard the flood occurred in 2184 BCE (unless the data was recorded in true solar years, in which case it will have occurred in 2205 BCE).
However, Josephus also lists (with the exception of Nahor) the ages of the patriarchs at the time of the birth of their sons. From this perspective, the total time lapse is 873 years (plus 29 years for Nahor).
Although there is no chart within the 'King's Calendar' to extend these 902 years (Josephus' figures), the results would be:
902 artificial years backdated from 1915 BCE = 2748 BCE (+/- 2 years)
- or -
if the data is based in the original Solar year references, then the year would be 2817 BCE.

HoweverIf you go to the Chapter Precis Page – Top toolbar – and click onto Appendix 12, you will find the Calendar demonstrating his references. This is available for a limited time.
While the various dates have been provide here, I would like to stipulate that The 'King's Calendar' does not enter into the theological or scientific arguments involving ANY FLOOD, be it 'a local flood' or 'the BIBLICALLY LITERAL flood.'
The 'King's Calendar' merely interprets the chronological data as it appears in the Biblical and associated materials.
Other Historical Dates as calculated by the 'King's Calendar' are:

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]
The reason why I asked about Nimrod and Sargon, is that if the number of years between the flood and the rise of Nimrod and sargon coincide then it would be beneficial in providing solutions and relationships to Biblical personalities and archival finds/ kinglists. It may be it is another king. I haven't had time to sit down and work it out, yet. There is also the problem of the library at Ebla. This suppossably contains many references to Biblical characters but has been prevented from doing so by the Syrian Government and the head archaeologist. It even has a one God creation account - the ONLY one outside of the Bible [information from mr Wilson, personally]
Sorry, but I do not have information at the moment to help you.
You state that you have received information from 'MR WILSON PERSONALLY'. Forgive my ignorance, but as I don't know who Mr. Wilson is (outside of Dennis the Menace's neighbour), it would help if you cited your source more specifically.
I too would like to have a detailed, UNBIASED, report on the findings, of the library of Ebla: especially the original translation of this creation epic. Apparently, the original translator who decpihered the Ebla text, found that it stated there was only One God Who created the whole universe etc. It is very similiar to Genesis. At a conference, on text translation, many were aghast to be told of this; since for so long the establishment has been told there is No textural evidence for a One God Creation. But here it was. It blew their minds. I have tried to get a copy of the original translation, but have failed so far. The Library also has mention of a few biblical kings of Israel and Judah. There is even the possibility of Abram being involved. It is a VERY IMPORTANT find and yet has been hidden from public perusal, most probably for political reasons.
