Topical Study tool for Students: Joshua and the Israelites This article has been designed for students as a quick study tool. It is a Topic Excerpt from Seder Olam Rabbah (No.3) (The Sojourn in Egypt to The Judgeship of Joshua). This particular Topical Excerpt merely draws attention to chronologically related information from the Seder Olam Rabbah, and then provides a 'real history time date' for such events.

"They traveled from Elim and the entire congregation of the Children of Israel arrived at the Wilderness of Sin" (that is Alush) "on the 15th day of the second month after the Exodus," which was on a Sabbath. Hence the First of Iyar fell on a Sabbath, and addition we infer that Israel ate from the cakes that they had taken out of Egypt 30 whole days; on that day it was finished, in the evening they ate quail, and early next morning they collected Mannah. In Alush they were given the Sabbath there Israel kept the first Sabbath as it is said (Ex. 16:30): "The people observed the Sabbath on the Seventh Day." On Sunday the 23rd of Iyar, they traveled from Alush and can to Rephidim. There the Well was given to them, they fought with Amalek and observed there the second Sabbath. They traveled from Rephidim and came to the wilderness of Sinai and found its top in clouds of glory. For the next five days Moses ascended the mountain, descended, told the people the words of the Omnipresent, and returned their answer to the Omnipresent. In the third month, on the Sixth of the month the Ten Commandments were given to them on a Sabbath day .
b.First Year - Mt. Sinai:
Exodus Chapter 19:1 In the third month after the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai. :3 And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying: 'Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel:
Seder Olam Rabbah 2nd Year: (Num. 1:1): "The Eternal spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the Tabernacle, on the first of the second month in the second year: (Num. 1:2) count the heads on the entire congregation of the children of Israel, (Num. 1:3) those twenty years old and older, every man of military age in Israel.
d.The Priesthood of Aaron:
Exodus Chapter 40:17 And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.
Seder Olam Rabbah
"It was on the eighth day that Moses called Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel," after the Seven Days of Dedication. It was the first day of the week, the first day of Nissan. On that day, Aaron and his sons entered their priesthood............On that day, Elisheba the daughter of Aminadab was offering from the rest of Jewish women by four joys and one mourning: Her brother-in-law was king, her husband high priest, her brother prince, and her sons vice high priests. Her mourning for her two sons Nadab and Abihu. Some people say, also her grandson anointed priest for war, that is Phineas. On the second of Nisan, Eleazar burned the red cow, Israel had its ashes sprinkled and repeated. On the 14th they slaughtered the Passover sacrifice; that was a Sabbath.

Seder Olam Rabbah38 years "The time that we went from until we crossed Wadi Zered was 38 years." 19 years they were wandering to and fro and 19 years they dwelt in Kadesh Barnea as it is said (Deut. 1:46):
f.The Death of Moses
Seder Olam Rabbah (Deut. 1:3-5) "It was in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, that Moses spoke to the Children of Israel, following all that the Eternal had commanded him about them. Moses was exactly 120 years old at his death, his eye had not dimmed and his sap had not dried up." (Jos. 1:1-2)
Seder Olam Rabbah "[Caleb] I was 40 years old when Moses, the Eternal’s servant, sent me from Kadesh Barnea to spy out the land" (v.10) "and now I am 85 years old." This teaches us that for seven years they were conquering. From where do we know that for seven years they were dividing up the land before they started to count years for tithes, sabbatical years, and jubilee years?
Comment: Since Caleb was 40 years old in the 2nd year in the wilderness, at 85 years old, he had been in Canaan 7 years.

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.
Free to air Academic articles set forth Apologetics for and results of his discovery of an "artificial chronological scheme" running through the Bible, Josephus, the Damascus Documents of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Seder Olam Rabbah.

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]
