Dating of exodus
So now we’re separated by almost four centuries and that’s why I would say that the eruption of Santorini cannot be chronologically linked to the exodus. He is a National Geographic Explorer, a Fulbright scholar, and an award-winning teacher and author.He has been a member of the Megiddo Expedition, in Israel, excavating biblical Armageddon, since 1994.God's Accounting System for Time is self-auditing; I've found and fixed several accounting errors scholars make, due to its self-auditing feature.So more on the Exodus-related dates is thus in Mirroring.htm, for ALL dates in Bible are related to the Exodus, both before and after it; the underlying 1050 'houses' of Time Accounting and their many subcomponents are also explained in [Home Page]   [Passion Week Dating]   [Dan 9 Timeline: God's Accounting System for Time (w/added info on Exodus dates), from Adam forward]   [Gene Yrs.xls, Worksheet Adam-Christ w/macro 490s |   [Post-30AD Acctg History]    [Bible Mistranslation Problems (i.e., on Jochebed)]   [NT Interpretative Keys] | Wrong Questions get wrong answers |  Check Bible: Sources, relevant Pharaonic data, Methodology| | Check Bible: alerts scholars should notice | | A for Avoidance: why is the most venerated Pharaonic line.. | | B for Baptism: Why is the "mose" moniker, unique to that same dynasty, blotted out? | | F for Foul Play: why Neferure's early death? | | G for God's Consistent Dating: why ignore Bible, when it's consistent? | | E for Eclipsed reign: Why only 9 campaigns for Amenhotep II?The explosion of Santorini, the volcanic eruption was usually dated, used to be dated, to 1450 B. There’s some argument, some people would now push it back down to 1550 but let’s say anywhere between 14. He’s not going to let anything like an exodus take place; and in fact, there’s nothing in his records that indicates that.The exodus, which we don’t have a good date for, if you follow biblical chronology and you add up all the years of who lived when and what’s going on, you come up with the figure of about 1450 B. E., which was the date for the eruption of Santorini and so everybody was really happy a while ago; but now things are moving apart because 1450 B. So, the biblical chronology does not work from an archaeological and historical point of view. And, indeed, at that time we’ve got Seti and Ramesses II and the biblical account does say that the Hebrew slaves were building the store-cities of Pithon and Ramesses; and you have a pharaoh who knew not Joseph and all that, it works for Seti and for Ramesses II.
This is especially true when the events in question are more than three thousand years past.Now, if we take a look at the archaeology and the history, the time period that does work is about 200 years later, so 1250 B. So, that’s the time period where I would want to put the exodus but that’s 200 years later than both what the Bible says and what Santorini originally was dated to.So what, in effect, we’ve got, is the dating for the eruption of Santorini has been pushed back to, say 1628, while the dating for the exodus has been pushed down to 1250.
