Section 20. Year remains the same. The Table of biblical dates
I wish to remember one conversation already from the remote past when I finished first my book. It was in manuscript and its some sections have not been finished yet, but already then there were first readers who hurried me with the termination of that book.
- Some questions are not solved yet, - I have told them.
- Years goes, - they have answered, - and the end still is not visible...
-It is similar to not completed house, - has told I, but has then agreed, that it is already possible to open doors of this house for interested persons, and not completes to finish after.
At that time (that is about 20 years ago) at a writing of the first edition of the given book, there was a task in view to track all chronology of the Bible, beginning from Adam's creation and finishing a Christmas. Practically, time of accession of the Cyrus, the king Persian, and his command about restoration of Jerusalem, put an end to the Babylonian captivity, that is 401st year BC became the Table terminal point. The given point of history is important because from it begins the account by well-known “weeks”, mentioned in the book of the prophet of Daniel, 9: 25, 26, - already till death and resurrection of the Christ.
For the last years the author had been wrote and some other books in which research of events of history of the mankind, reflected in the Bible, has been continued. For example, in the book «40 days in Paradise» have been paid steadfast attention to Adam's and Eve’s epoch in this connection it was possible to define year of creation of Adam more precisely. So, in the first edition 4000 year BC has been specified. In the given second edition, more exact, 4001 year BC. For one year is specified year of birth Seth, and also Enos, Cainan, Enoch, Noah and Shem has changed also, (see the Table). Years of reign of kings, prophesy of prophets and other events are more precisely specified. However these specifications have not affected in any way an end result. Many dates in the Table remained without changes, for example: the beginning (and the end) the flood, birth of Arphaxad, birth of Peleg, a birth of Abraham, a birth of Ishmael, circumcision introduction, birth of Isaac, a birth of Jacob and others.
Eventually it was possible to specify a little and date of accession of the Christ (though it concerns the future and consequently has not entered into the Table placed lower devoted to the remote past). Date of accession of the Christ - great date. Speaking about it, today I would specify in the end of 2012. More low we offer the list of the real Biblical dates in chronology before Christ, beginning from Adam creation; all of them are verified with the Bible and moreover, are a part of Biblical annals. As already it has been told above, the end result (that is year of accession of the Cyrus, his decision about restoration of Jerusalem and accordingly - the end of the captivity Babylonian) in the Table has not changed in any way and both in the first, and in the second edition of this book there is the same.
