Biblical account true..!

Biblical account is true...!

https://edition.cnn.com/travel/article/jerusalem-mount-zion-babylonian-conquest-evidence-intl-scli/index.html

**********

Archaeologists excavating on Mount Zion in Jerusalem have uncovered evidence of the Babylonian conquest of the city, appearing to confirm a Biblical account of its destruction.

"This evidence points to the historical conquest of the city by Babylon because the only major destruction we have in Jerusalem for this period is the conquest of 587/586 BCE," Gibson said.

The conquest, led by the Neo-Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar II, is believed to have resulted in a significant loss of life when the city was razed to the ground. It also led to the destruction of King Solomon's Temple -- a story recounted in the Old Testament's Second Book of Kings.

Orthodox Jews around the world commemorate the event every year on Tisha B'Av, an annual day of fasting and mourning, which this year took place on Sunday. The day, which is regarded as the saddest in the Jewish calendar, also marks the destruction of the Second Temple by Roman legions around 70 AD.

Yep.
We've had confirmatory evidence of this from ostraca, found, not only in Syria and Palestine, but the Eas
tern Egyptian Delta.
About the only folk who dispute the date are Jehovah Witnesses, because the dates don't add up to their envisaged 1914 parousia if one accepts the factual record.

Hi Anchorman

I thought this date (587-586 B.C.) had been known to be historical fact for a long time. Not quite sure why the J.Ws insisted on 607 B.C. so stubbornly in face of all the evidence. Maybe it was a date touted as actual by certain supposed pundits at one time, and perhaps it fitted with their numerous earlier predictions of the parousia with enough tinkering. The incorrect date does indeed make their assertion of parousia in 1914 sound plausible to the uninformed (skip from Daniel to Revelations in one bound, calculate according to a lunar year, add a year for the year 0 (should one do that in any historical calculation?) - and of course, start from a non-historical date. Absolutely marvellous!)


We also have historical confirmation in non-Judaic sources for certain other Biblical stories e.g. the siege of Jerusalem in the reign of Hezekiah (2Chronicles 32, 2Kings 18), confirmed by the prism of Sennacherib (approx 701 B.C.)

 You are forgetting Russell's A( fascination wuith numbers, and B) his inability to count. His insane pyramidiocy tendencies lled him to work out certain dates based on mismeasuring the pyramid using the (fictional) 'pyramid inch. Having done the maths - possibly using his figures - he came up with certain 'inailienable dates' (possibly he was a Klingon). He then used the same 'methods' to calculate Bible history...hence his 607 BC stuff, and a misguided attempt to calculate the date of the Exodus which even his followers didn't buy into.
