Wanna know why there are so many debates on Bible dates? EVERYONE INEPTLY USES LUNAR YEARS. Even my fellow Dispies get Daniel 9:26 wrong, for they insist on lunar years (my own pastor was in that trap back 40 years ago, too). So the extra hanging-chad 7 so central to Scripture date tracking, goes missed: 483 lunar = 476 solar. Sigh. Centuries of shoehorned, inaccurate timelines on Bible from Genesis forward but especially re the 490 prophecy, have continued to this day. And, because incompetent dear Dr. So and So said it, everyone else apes his mistake.. to this day. Do you know, the incredibly inept 'church fathers' invented an idea -- maybe from that horrible accounting mishmash called the 'Book of Jubilees' -- that Christ was born in the 5500th year after the founding of the world? WHERE did they get that nonsense? I'm still trying to figure it out, reading Mosshammer's Easter Computus (in Amazon or Barnes and Noble, usually about $100, sometimes cheaper).


But lookie here: back in 1756, 20 years before Gibbon wrote his own famous tome, here's this guy Henry Winder, lucidly explaining why ONLY SOLAR YEARS should be the accounting standard when reckoning BIBLE. So in this video, I have fun reading aloud in variant voices, what he wrote. You can avoid my voices, and instead read him for yourself: books.google.com/books?id=jdVBAAAAcAAJ&pg=PA74&f=false . Scroll up to the last para on the prior page, to get context.

Honestly, people claim that if you're not a scholar you can't competently comment on Bible. Well, Winder is a scholar, and who listened to him? And no, you don't need to be a scholar, to realize you must use SOLAR YEAR ACCOUNTING or you will miss your anniversary (of birth, for example). So now you know why all those Bible date debates are a waste of time, why the Jewish calendar is all messed up -- both 'schools' use a dippy LUNAR standard which BIBLE NEVER USES, as amply shown WHY, here in Winder's witty prose!

GIST: Noah's Ark Year is basis for Israel's (and our) solar calendar. For we're alive because Noah was one of the 'lords of time', per Genesis 5; all mankind descends from him. So TIME itself, per Genesis 7 and 8, is based on Noah's Year in the Boat. However, Genesis 7:11 and 8:5 have the wrong date in Hebrew but the correct date in LXX; we have a lot of writing about how ancient Jews knew the Noahic precedence but accounted it incorrectly. One's ability to tie Bible dates together, hinges on whether you use the errant Hebrew text, or the correct LXX text. Many, like Harold Camping, are sloppy scholars, so use the wrong text.

Yet Bible writers used LXX value in Gen 7:11; so they had older (and correct) Hebrew text. We can know that, from their meters. Daniel used a Noahic year of 365 days (which you get, if you correct Gen 7:11 to the LXX date we have); so did Paul, in crafting his 'Year of Church' meter (four quarters of 91).

So the few videos in this group, show the meaning of the Noahic tally. A dissertation by Jack P. Lewis, "A Study of the Interpretation of Noah and the Flood in Jewish and Christian Literature", catalogues what was known by the ancients. You can google for the book (I got mine at Amazon, but it's out of print, now). Most sources are well known, like Book of Jubilees, Talmud, Josephus: but their numbers are all bad. Still the ancient prevalence of the idea, is provable.

I've got to do more study on this topic. What I know so far, is in the videos here.
