The King's Calendar demonstrates that the Redactors of the 5th to 3rd Century BCE changed the Original Solar years in Scripture into Artificial years, and these the King's Calendar uses for the Kings of the Divided Kingdom of Ancient Israel. This is a very simple computer generated mathematical reconstruction that demonstrates that the chronological data for the Divided Kingdom Period is both correct and aligns with known history.

As mentioned in the opening, The King's Calendar Computer Generated Mathematical Synchronous Chronology for the Divided Kingdom of Ancient Israel does not follow standard methods for interpreting Israelite history.
It assigns the value of 336 days per Biblical Year - and - shifts the reigns of 3 kings of Babylon by one year. To further understand the King's Calendar Methodology go to:
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 Five to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]

About the KingsCalendar Publisher
R.P.BenDedek is the owner and Editor of KingsCalendar.com which was originally set up 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.
