Product Description

For centuries scholars have puzzled over the problem of Old Testament chronology. One of the most difficult issues has been the synchronization of the reigns of the Hebrew kings. The biblical records provide much information about these kings and how they relate to each other, but when all the information is put together it seems contradictory. As early as the third century B.C. attempts were made to correct these seeming errors in the biblical text. Solutions to these difficulties appeared even more remote as scholarship succeeded in determining the exact dates of events in ancient Babylon and Assyria, these dates seemed to be in hopeless conflict with the Bible.

Publisher's Description

For centuries scholars have puzzled over the problem of Old Testament chronology. One of the most difficult issues has been the synchronization of the reign of the Hebrew kings. The biblical records provide much information about these kings and how they relate to each other. But when all the information is put together it seems contradictory, as early as the third century B.C. attempts were made to correct these seeming errors in the biblical text. Solutions to these difficulties appeard even more remote as scholarship succeeded in determining the exact dates of events in acient Babylon and Assyria, and these dates seemed to be in hopeless conflict with the Bible.

Dr. Edwin R. Thiele has addressed these issues and solved the problems related to the chronology of the Hebrew kings. By carefully studying the biblical data, he determined the dating methods of the early Hebrew scribes. By following the principles established by these scribes, Dr. Thiele has succeeded in producing a chronology that is consistent with the scriptural records and the records of other nations of the ancient world.

From its first publication this book has been recognized as a classic in the field of biblical studies. In this revised third edition Dr. Thiele reexamines the records in light of recent scholarship, explores more fully the Hebrew dual dating system, and offers a careful rebuttal to Shenkel's thesis that the Septuagint provides a more accurate chronology than the Masoretic Text does. This new material and the revised material from previous editions make this a book of great value to all students of the Bible.

    Although the subject is sometimes difficult to follow (you'll need plenty of undistracted time for comprehension), Theile works through the problems of Hebrew Kings chronology very methodically. His MO is that the Bible is correct. But, like a puzzle, the chronological data has to be pieced together correctly for it to harmonize. You'll see what I mean if you read it. Very glad I bought this book.

    Overall, Mr. Thiele did a considerably good job harmonizing the reigns of the Kings of both Israel and Judah. He very clearly outlines the methods used by the chroniclers of these two kingdoms and how their methods compare to the methods used by their surrounding nations. However, there exists one glaring problem with his work in this book. He does not give sufficient evidence to support his theory regarding the kings from Jotham to Hezekiah of Judah and the kings from Pekahiah to Hoshea of Israel. He effectively throws out sections of Scripture without evidence of textual problems to support his conclusions during the period of the last kings of Israel.
