README! How Matthew's 427 dateline meter not only tells you he writes in 30AD, but reconciles real time back to Abraham; yet also references Psalm 90 and Daniel 9.

He reconciles to Abraham, as follows:

5250 (= end All Time per Psalm 90, Dan 9:24) - 64 (# years Christ dies short of the Mill, which is when Matthew writes) - (427*7=2989) = 2197, the DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

Abraham's birthdate per BIBLE, 1946 years From Adam's Fall
to Christ's death, 4136 years From Adam's Fall + the 7 shortfall, because He died early.

Idea is to show Psalm 90:15's equidistance being fulfilled: Christ was allotted 100 years from Birth to 2nd Advent, balancing from Abraham, even as Abraham was age 100 when he hit supermaturity. But David became king 3 years early over Hebron, so the Lord's birthdate had to be moved up 3 years. Because scholars don't know this, we have the 4BC problem. It represents a real shortening of time. Bible accounts on two time tracks, not one, but we treat them as one, so get this 'anomaly'. So Matthew balances to it.

The Mill thus was to begin when Christ was age 97. Yet, is still 'on time' at 4200 (2100 years for the Jews):

2046, Abraham matures, so 53.5 years early.
3096, David king at Hebron, on time from Abraham (1050 deadline), also 3.5 years early, so
57, sum of Jubilee and Passion week (as years) in Mosaic Law.

This is why Temple remains for the 40 years post Christ, and everyone expected its demise in 70 AD when it actually occurred, as Mary shows in her Magnificat meter math. The remaining 14 years were 'used up' to rebuild the Temple, so another 14 years still had to play after Messiah's birth. Included in these are the 3.5 'repayment' on David's Kingship occurring 'early' in order to be on time relative to Abraham. That's why Mary took the timeline to Christ at age 56 (57th year, but 56 is divisible by 7). It was prophetic.

4200 - 57 = 1000th anniversary of David's death, so 4143 from Adam, rather than 4146 from Adam (1050 * 2 from Abraham) . But Christ died 7 years early; hence Matthew, writing that year, debits 64 not 57 to balance.

So the same accounting has a second application, that of VOTING. For it's due to VOTING that the timeline CHANGED. Video goes through the VOTING number play, rather than the above accounting. Israel's sabbatical years were based on this 70 in the 'millennial' accounting since Adam's fall, which is really 1050: 490+70+490. See my How God Orchestrates Time channel to understand that math, How God Orchestrates Time .

Matthew thus employs the same meter dateline convention from Psalm 90 forward:

A. Create a date formula from the day you're writing BACKWARDS to a Biblically significant date which helps the reader understand the THEME of what you write, and

B. RELATE that theme to the prophesied Millennium. Usually, this means a count-back from that future endpoint, be it 5250 from Adam when All Time must end, or 4200 when the Mill was supposed to begin.

All the Bible writers follow this system. They usually phrase datelines in dual fashion, and dually: so two datelines, and then you also multiply each of the two datelines by seven. This gives you a fourfold GPS of time and theme for the chapter or book being datelined, as the events are either Biblically significant, even if of secular events, or are events which the Bible records, so you can read about that significance and relate the material to the current chapter or Bible book.

To covert to our BC/AD, use '4103' for Christ's birth, but when counting back to values prior to that date, subtract 4106, not 4103, from the RESULT. Because the timeline shifts at David. So our BC dates pre-David, if not calculated with reference to David, will still tally.

For AD, this often means ADDING three years to whatever the Bible's 'AD' system is used, i.e., Paul says he wrote when Christ was age 56, so you have to add 3 years to it. But that's only needed with reference to any date based on Christ's age. The Roman AUC system is not based on Christ's age, so usually its AD conversions are the same as the Bible's AD dates. I'm still fine-tuning this adjustment. Most of the time it should work for you.

Varro's AUC system is used to get our BC/AD; but his system includes 8 added years, see livius.org/cg-cm/chronology/varro.html . Since we subtract 3 years but Varro added 8, you get a net 4 years really 7 and 3, respectively, since Christ was born at the END of the year. On our subtraction, see books.google.com/books?id=0umDqPOf2L8C&pg=PA344&lpg=PA344&dq=Dionysius+Exiguus+Augustus&source=bl&ots=jA8NwA4Tfz&sig=JS2je0a0p7

PATU is now somewhat outdated. Its focus was to discern Paul's Anno Domini conversions. Turns out all NT books use ADAMIC years and the Lord's AGE as their datelines. See Bible Dateline Meters for more info. Latest thread is at brainout.net/frankforum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=532&p=2356#p2356

By contrast, Paul's use of the Roman AUC in Ephesians is different. 'Gimmicky, so he can tag Mary. So his usage requires special explanation, which begins at PATU40. Videos prior, furnish background. Frankly they are a slog to watch, kept only because they provide audit material. To play these videos in order: channel . Sorting: click on 'Browse This Channel', then 'Videos'.

For Paul, like every other NT writer beginning with Matthew, reconciles BC/AD: for Varro's Roman AUC is padded with four years that never existed. Moreover, Christ had to be born earlier than originally scheduled, owing to David's Crowning. So the overage in Varro, and the earlier scheduling of Christ's Birth in Bible, COINCIDE AND OFFSET.

So Bible employs the following conversions: Bible's original date for His Birth, was to be 4106 from Adam's Fall. Call that 'BC' for our Bible calculations, and you'll tally to our usual 'BC' dates. But due to David's becoming king early at Hebron in order to be 'on time' relative to the 1050th anniversary of Abraham's maturation, Christ's Birthdate had to move 'up' 3.5 years, to 1st quarter 4103 in the Adamic fiscal, which runs Sept-Sept (Rosh HaShanah is based on it). Yet also, David's UNITED Kingship occurs 7 years late, owing to civil war (2Sam5); hence Christ has to be born in the 1000th anniversary of David's UNITED kingship crowning, which is 4103.

Roman AUC, however, ends in December; so His Adamic 25 Chislev 4103 Birthday on Roman fiscal, is treated as 4102. One week later, it's 4103 on the Roman fiscal.

So NT writers use His Age as an Adamic date (4106+His Age when they write); that automatically tallies to the official Roman AUC. That's the ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED age, not His Actual age, which is 3 years older. Therefore often their datelines SWITCH between His shoulda-been and His Actual age, to make doctrinal points about BEING ON TIME. Very clever.

So the reader, would just add either a 'base' of Adamic birth year, as described above; or, they'd add the Roman AUC 'base'. Problem is, we moderns don't know what latter 'base' they used.

However, we do know that Claudius made Varro's Roman AUC, the law of measuring Roman time. The ancients knew that schedule overstated Rome's age by 4 years (see the Matthew videos' descriptions in this channel for links on what those ancient Romans knew).

As a result, they too had to contend with the same '4 BC' problem, we do, for His Birth, since they had to append His Age onto a dateline for Rome which they KNEW was 4 years overstated. Aha.

So what to do? Well, we use the same Roman AUC today, as Claudius made law, and all the AD dates Roman historians give us, use that system. So: Roman AUC 750, He's born. End of year. That's standard procedure, so will tally to the commonly-given AD and BC dates you see in scholarly works, unless the writer develops his own adjustments. That's Adamic 4103, first quarter, but Roman end-of-year.

So it now depends on your starting point. If you start with BIBLE's Adamic years, not Ussher's or some other non-Bible person, then 4103 is His Birth Year, 1437 years after the Exodus (originally scheduled to be 1440 years after it, since David wasn't yet alive then). Roman AUC equivalent is 750, end of that year. So, then just add His Age like the NT Bible writers all use, and you get the 'AD' they were thinking of.

In practice, the Adamic year in 'AD' is His Age, +3, +4100. The Roman AUC is 750 + His Age, but add another 1, during Christmas week (since the Roman year increases 1 a week later). A shorthand calc is to subtract three from His Age to get the Roman AUC 'AD' equivalent.

Example: John wrote Revelation sometime after 4 Chislev but before 25 Chislev (Chanukah, the Lord's Birthday), in 4195 from Adam (1st quarter, since Adamic fiscal runs on autumnal equinox). So 4195-3=92, His upcoming age on that birthday, which is really December 15 on the old Julian calendar (under Pope Gregory 10 days were cut from our calendar). That week, you must subtract 4 to get the Roman end of year, 88 AD. A week later, the Roman AD equivalent thus becomes 89.

So you'll notice that the same adjustments we make today, they made.. back then. Simple, huh.
