Joshua's Long Day - Skip to the Long Version

Joshua 10

10:12 "Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, sun stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, moon upon Ajalon.
10:13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down a whole day.
10:14 And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel."

NASA states on their web site:
"According to the laws of physics, there are only two possible explanations for having the Sun stand still in the sky for a day: (1) the Earth would essentially have to stop spinning on its axis...for which there is no evidence. -or- (2) the Sun would have to start moving about in the solar system in a very specific way so that it appeared to us on our spinning Earth to be standing still. There is no evidence of this occurring either."

The Sun standing still at noon for Joshua for a day may have been produced by God moving the Sun around the Earth. The history and a working model are given here. God may have moved the sun around the earth with earth's rotation to make the sun stand still in the sky. Perhaps God moved the sun around the earth, to the other side of earth, and earth flowed forward into a reverse orbit of the sun. Then half an orbit later, and a year later, He moved the sun back and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun leaving no evidence, no biological or geological trace, not even any net missing time. There is no other way.

If God were to stop the earth from rotating, He would have to start it rotating again. Dry land would ring the equator. Oceans would over flow. In an old Bible encyclopedia is stated that God must have moved the sun to make the sun stand still in the sky rather than stop earth from rotating. Earth rotates 1000 miles per hour at the equator, people would fall over. A continuous watch would show days of elapsed time unaccounted for. Moving the sun back and forth has the net effect of no net missing time. A continuous watch would show no missing time. God moving the sun makes far more sense.

Earth is slowing down its rotation about one second every 18 months. Tonight, December 31, 2016 a leap second is added. Over 10,000 years a whole hour is added. Thus, earth's rotation is unchanged. Only the sun moved around the earth with earth's rotation to appear to stand still in the sky. All sun miracles may be produced by God moving the sun, not slowing or reversing earth's rotation.

I invite you to do the math. The model works perfectly. Knowing what you know and what you do not know is important.

What we know - The sun moved 180° back February 15, 1240 BC, and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit as described in detail in king Wan's dream. King Wan recorded a lunar eclipse, day 13 of cycle 60, September 23, 1205 BC in his 35th year. 35 years before 1205 BC is this 1240 BC when the sun stood still at the sunset position for 12 hours, the sun moving 180° back and earth flowing out of the reverse orbit, when king Wan fought with emperor Wending, thus king Wan lightened the western regions.

King Wan lighted the western regions not only describes the sun standing still at sunset in the west for 12 hours, February 15, 1240 BC, but also may describe the sun standing still at sunset in the west in China = noon in Israel, for 24 hours six months earlier on this Joshua's Long Day, August 24, 1241 BC. Not only that, but the sun rising in the west in China, as the sun set in the east on Israel. The sun continuing to pass west to east past the noon position to the 9 AM position on China, then brilliantly the sun suddenly moving 180° west, set in the west on China to rise brilliantly in the east on Israel Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC, as in Judges 8:13, to foretell Jesus' resurrection morning.

Genesis 1:5 "And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day."

Joshua's long day was in the summer of 1241 BC because the 50 year jubile to 591 BC, 70 year captivity, from 521 BC to 29 AD when Jesus began his ministry on Yom Kippur to fulfill Isaiah 61. The Exodus was April 1, 1281 BC because that was the end of the sothis cycle of 1456 years from 2737 BC. 40 years in the wilderness to 1241 BC.

The model of moving the sun to the other side of earth and earth flowing into a reverse orbit means - the earth must speed up 48 hours a reverse orbit year to keep 365 days in a year. The sun and planets can move back at the half orbit point and earth flow out of the reverse orbit as if nothing had happened. The planets appearing in the same night time hour in the reverse orbit would move back exactly 180° with the sun to be in their normal orbit. Thus the half orbit, the 188 days / 365.24 days X 48 hours = 24:40 hours just like the Missing Day Story. Same numbers and context: a missing 23 hours 20 minutes and the missing 40 minutes found.

From NASA's web site: "Most scientists draw a clear distinction between things that are taken on faith, and those that are testable and therefore falsifiable." God leaves no evidence so we have to have faith. Nevertheless, lest sincere people should be deceived, this web page gives evidence of faith.

Even if these calculations have been discovered here for the first time, they have as of now "occurred" and NASA's statement "There is no evidence of this occurring either." is outdated and false.

The real credit goes to Jesus who has guided me in all truth, and to God who gives the victory.

There is lots of work to be done as a Christian for those who do not mind who takes the credit.

A Short Explanation

The "Missing Day" Story

The following article was copied from the "Evening Star", a newspaper located in Spencer, Indiana.

Did you know that the space program is busy proving that what has been called myth in the bible is true?

Mr. Harold Hill, President of the Curtis Engine Company in Baltimore, Maryland and a consultant in the space program, relates the following development:

"I think one of the most amazing things that God has for us today happened recently to our astronauts and space scientists at Green Belt, Maryland. They were checking the position of the sun, moon and planets out in space where they would be 100 years and 1,000 years from now. We have to know this so we don't send a satellite up and have it bump into something later on in its orbit . We have to lay out the orbits in terms of the life of the satellite, and where the planets will be so the whole thing will not bog down. They ran the computer measurement back and forth over the centuries and it came to a halt. The computer stopped and put up a red signal, which meant that there was something wrong either with the information fed into it or with the results as compared to the standards.

They called in the service department to check it out and they said, "It's perfect." The head of operations said, "What's wrong?" "Well, we have found there is a day missing in space in elapsed time." They scratched their heads and tore their hair. There was no answer. One religious fellow on the team said, "You know, one time when I was in Sunday School they talked about the sun standing still."

They didn't believe him, but they didn't have any other answer, so they said, "show us." He got a Bible and went back to the Book of Joshua where they found a pretty ridiculous statement for anybody who has "common sense." (Joshua 10: 8-14).

There they found the Lord saying to Joshua, "Fear them not, for I have delivered them into your hand; there shall not a man of them stand before you." Joshua was concerned because he was surrounded by the enemy and if darkness fell, they would overpower them. So Joshua asked the sun to stand still. That's right- - - "The sun stood still and the moon stayed and hastened not to go down about a whole day."

The space men said, "There is the missing day."

They checked the computers going back into the time it was written and found it was close, but not close enough. The elapsed time that was missing back in Joshua's day was 23 hours and 20 minutes - not a whole day. They read the Bible and there it was "about (approximately a day).

"These little words in the Bible are important. But they were still in trouble because if you cannot account for 40 minutes you'll still be in trouble 1,000 years from now. Forty minutes had to be found because it can be multiplied many times over in orbits.

This religious fellow also remembered somewhere in the Bible where it said the sun went BACKWARDS. The space men told him he was out of his mind. But, they got out the Book and read these words in II Kings. Hezekiah, on his death-bed, was visited by the prophet Isaiah who told him he was not going to die. Hezekiah asked for the sign of proof. Isaiah said, "Do you want the sun to go ahead ten degrees? Hezekiah said, "It's nothing for the sun to go ahead ten degrees, but let the shadow return backward ten degrees."

Isaiah spoke to the Lord and the Lord brought the shadow ten degrees BACKWARD. Ten degrees is exactly 40 minutes. Twenty-three hours and 20 minutes in Joshua, plus 40 minutes in II Kings (II Kings 20:1-11) make the missing 24 hours the space travelers had to log in the logbook as being the missing day in the universe.

Isn't that amazing!!

The Missing Day Revealed

Harold Hill who wrote the Missing Day Story may have heard of NASA scientists discovering such a reverse orbit. He used Totten's book, published in 1890, instead. These may be the original NASA calculations in the Missing Day Story: If the sun moved 180° east to stand still in the sky for Joshua, that means the sun moved to the other side of the earth, which takes 12 hours, and earth flowed into a reverse orbit. However, this 12 hours may be the battle of Merom and king Wan's dream and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun. King Wan's dream describes the sun in Virgo in Spring. The sun normally is in Virgo in August/September, 1240 BC. This is a detection of being 180° out, half a year out, not just a day out.

For the sun to be 180° out, a spring sun in the fall, the truth is blatant. You will see earth sped up 48 hours a reverse orbit year. At the halfway mark, when the sun may move back as if nothing happened, and when the planets can move exactly 180° back as if nothing happened, and earth flow out of the reverse orbit, half of the 48 hours is about 24 hours. If you look at the details of the missing time of 23:20 hours that equal the sped up first half reverse orbit, then the missing 40 minutes in the sped up second half reverse orbit of 24:40 hours, you will see the Missing Day Story matches this model exactly, and thus is more likely, than not, a true story.

Hebrews 11:3 "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."

This world is just a scaffolding for God's work.

"At MIT, Aldrin had foreseen the importance of rendezvous to NASA's program. But what if the computer broke down? With the help of specialists in MIT's Instrumentation Laboratory, Aldrin worked out the techniques the pilot could use to take over and fly the final stages of a rendezvous by hand." March 7, 1969.
A Man on the Moon, p.142.

January 27, 1967, astronauts Ed White, Gus Grissom, Roger Chaffee, died in a lunar launch rehearsal. Some astronauts like Buzz Aldrin did work on rocket science. Thus if those present, if or when NASA's scientists found the missing day, died; there may be no record or memory of the event. Harold Hill did some work on diesel generators for NASA. Simply overhearing some gossip, he could quickly jump to conclusions. Hearing the right measurements given here, he may have mistakenly connected the 24:40 hours and 23:20 hours of Joshua with Charles Totten and Harry Rimmer.

See "The Harmony of Science and Scripture" by Harry Rimmer, Modern Science and the Long Day of Joshua;

The date given, July 22, 1475 BC was a Tuesday, the last quarter of the lunar month. Reckoning back the day Wednesday the day of battle. Thus a missing day. These dates are accurate on any planetarium software, but were only a calculated guess. The real Joshua's Long Day, backed up by many records and chronology, was in the summer of 1241 BC; probably August 24, 1241 BC.

"There is a book by Prof. C. A. Totten of Yale, written in 1890, which establishes the case beyond the shadow of doubt. The condensed account of his book, briefly summarized, is as follows:

Professor Totten wrote of a fellow-professor, an accomplished astronomer, who made the strange discovery that the earth was twenty-four hours out of schedule! That is to say, there had been twenty-four hours lost out of time. In discussing this point with his fellow professors, Professor Totten challenged this man to investigate the question of the inspiration of the Bible. He said, "You do not believe the Bible to be the Word of God, and I do. Now here is a fine opportunity to prove whether or not the Bible is inspired. You begin to read at the very beginning and read as far as need be, and see if the Bible can account for your missing time."

The astronomer accepted the challenge and began to read. Some time later, when the two men chanced to meet on campus, Professor Totten asked his friend if he had proved the question to his satisfaction. His colleague replied, "I believe I have definitely proved that the Bible is not the Word of God. In the tenth chapter of Joshua, I found the missing twenty-four hours accounted for. Then I went back and checked up on my figures, and found that at the time of Joshua there were only twenty-three hours and twenty minutes lost. If the Bible made a mistake of forty minutes, it is not the Book of God!"

Professor Totten said, "You are right, in part at least. But does the Bible say that a whole day was lost at the time of Joshua?" So they looked and saw that the text said, "about the space of a whole day."

The word "about" changed the whole situation, and the astronomer took up his reading again. He read on until he came to the twenty-eighth chapter of the prophet Isaiah. In this chapter, Isaiah has left us the thrilling story of the king, Hezekiah, who was sick unto death. In response to his prayer, God promised to add fifteen more years to his life. To confirm the truth of His promise, God offered a sign. He said, "Go out in the court and look at the sundial of Ahaz. I will make the shadow on the sundial back up ten degrees!" Isaiah recounts that the king looked, and while he looked, the shadow turned backward ten degrees, by which degrees it had already gone down! This settles the case, for ten degrees on the sundial is forty minutes on the face of the clock! So the accuracy of the Bible was established to the satisfaction of this exacting critic.

The Missing Day Story uses the same 23 hours and 20 minutes as Rimmer and Totten. However, the elapsed time and the missing time lead me to suspect a grain of truth. Sure, Joshua's long day would be described as 24 hours of elapsed time. But to know there would be missing time, such as from a sped up reverse orbit to counter the elapsed time, would require one to uncover this basic model presented here.

The ten degrees of Hezekiah is a King James misprint. In no way did the sun only back up 10 degrees of a 360 degree circle. The Hebrew states the shadow retreated ten steps of the sundial to the eastern horizon, either 90° or 180°. Ten steps probably means ten hours. The sundial at Jerusalem would only make a shadow an hour after sun rise and an hour before sunset. Thus, 10 steps is ten hours = the whole sky.

John 1:39 "He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour."

There may be 12 hours on a sundial of 180°.

John 11:9 "Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world."

Psalm 125:2 "As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for ever."

The hills around Jerusalem mean a sundial at the temple would only show a shadow after the first hour of sun rise at the horizon in the east. Likewise the sundial would not show a shadow an hour before the sun set on the horizon in the west. Thus ten steps on the upper sundial of Ahaz should be ten hours.

If NASA used the data used here, they would get the same missing 23 hours and 20 minutes. Thus, even though the 40 minutes accrued to Isaiah are in error, there are still 40 minutes missing at Joshua's long day that are not regained till king Wan's dream half an orbit later.

At a local astronomy presentation for ocrasc.ca in Kelowna by Richard Federley, who was a candidate to become a Canadian astronaut, Richard stated astronauts are selected out of thousands of applicants, based partly on their ability to solve problems quickly. He said the astronauts and space scientists can solve any problem easily. They can communicate well. So, they can tackle any problem together. They have to be. The demands of an astronaut are tremendous.

Thus the same 23 hours and 20 minutes, 24 hours and 40 minutes, and finally the missing ten degrees = 40 minutes. The sun stand still for 12 hours at noon Israel = 180°, then the sun retreat 10° to the east = from the 12 PM position to the 11:20 AM position in Israel, (and rise 10° from the western horizon in China on king Wan) = the missing 40 minutes!

So, if I can solve this same missing day over a period of many years, the spacemen at NASA could do the same in a very short time.

The NASA astronauts and spacemen would need to see a record pointing to a reverse zodiac, reverse orbit. Shortly they would realize a half reverse orbit must be sped up 24 hours. Then they would realize they were missing this same 24 hours. A whole year of a reverse orbit must have 48 hours of missing time to still have 365 days in a year because rotation was against orbit. From the spring equinox to the fall equinox are 187 days, from the fall equinox to the spring equinox are 178 days. The sped up spring/summer orbit = 23 hours and 20 minutes! Then they would see they were still missing 40 minutes. Then they would see the missing ten degrees, 40 minutes, when the sun returned one year later, in the second half reverse orbit when the sun returned in king Wan's dream.

If only a few words of gossip from NASA were overheard by Harold Hill, they may have been repeated from the discovery of the reverse orbit and king Wan's dream in the Chinese Classics. The reverse orbit in the Chinese Classics would have to be thoroughly investigated till all the details were accounted for. An example complete reverse orbit of Joshua's long day and king Wan's dream the same year would complete the details of a one year reverse orbit. And thus satisfy the concerns of the space mission.

Paul in Hebrews stated Joshua did not give Israel rest. The day of rest was Saturday. From the fall of Jericho, Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC half an orbit to Joshua's long day, at the beginning of the sabbath, Friday night, August 24, 1241 BC is 188 days which you see 188/365 X 48 hours = 24 hours and 40 minutes. Only this spring to fall reverse orbit was the slow half year reverse orbit and would be 23 hours and 20 minutes. Thus the spacemen would get to Joshua's long day and still be missing 40 minutes. The second half orbit to Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC: 177/365 X 48 hours = 23 hours and 20 minutes. The second half reverse orbit is the faster half. The missing time, sped up half reverse orbit, would be 24 hours and 40 minutes.

NASA cannot even answer the record of king Wan's dream that same year February 15, 1240 BC when the sun moved back and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit.

I emailed NASA the following:

"King Wan dreamt that he was clothed with the sun and the moon. A phoenix duck sang on mount K'e. In the first month of spring, on the 6th day, the five planets had a conjunction in Fang. Afterwards a male and female phoenix went about Wan's capital with a writing in their beaks, which said: 'The emperor of Yin has no principle, but oppresses and disorders the empire. The great decree is removed: Yin cannot enjoy it longer. The powerful spirits of earth have left it; all the spirits are whistled away.'"
The Annals of the Bamboo Books, Part V the Dynasty of Chow p.143, The Chinese Classics.
The sun in Spring/February is in Pisces, the western sky at sunset is in Taurus not Scorpius/Fang. Did God move the sun to the other side of earth? http://sunnyokanagan.com/joshua/long.html

Andrew Bennett

Hi, and thanks for your question.
I'm afraid while you selected "Relativity" as a category on our web page, this question is a closer fit to the category "Night Sky".
Nevertheless, since we're not familiar with the text you refer to --- and since it appears that the astronomical statement is part of a dream rather than an actual documented observation --- we can't give you a useful answer.

Bernard & Ira
for Ask an Astrophysicist

The first quarter moon, the six day moon, is straight above at sunset. If Fang/Scorpio is straight above, the sun is in Virgo at sunset! The sun has to be in Pisces in spring - 180° away from Virgo!

This is the real thing. I cannot get a reasonable answer from NASA. At least I can please God!

Also in this record of king Wan; the phoenixes moved the sun and moon! The planets were moved out of the way of the sun, to Scorpio! King Wan was clothed in night clothes of the sun and moon! There was a decree for a new dynasty because of the omen!

Joshua 11:6 "And the LORD said unto Joshua, Be not afraid because of them: for to morrow about this time will I deliver them up all slain before Israel: thou shalt hough their horses, and burn their chariots with fire.
11:7 So Joshua came, and all the people of war with him, against them by the waters of Merom suddenly; and they fell upon them.
11:8 And the LORD delivered them into the hand of Israel, who smote them, and chased them unto great Zidon, and unto Misrephothmaim, and unto the valley of Mizpeh eastward; and they smote them, until they left them none remaining."

King Wan's dream must be this battle of Merom. Israel chased the Midianites 40 miles to Zidon. That is not possible in the six hours from noon to sunset. Joshua had 24 extra hours in the battle of Gibeon, then Joshua would have 12 extra hours in the battle of Merom. This battle of Merom appears to be six months after Joshua's long day. The sun may move 180° back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit.

Even if NASA did not discover the Missing Day, the calculations here stand on their own.

In the 1980's I managed the inventory of lumber sales to the U.S. east coast for Doman. In those years Doman shipped more lumber there than any other lumber company. Baltimore, Maryland, was one of our ports.

This observation from James Legge in the Chinese Classics can only be true if the sun moved to the other side of the earth:

"But the vernal mansions go to the west and the autumnal ones to the east, reversing the previous directions of these two seasons, and in opposition to the prevailing notion of the Chinese that the spring belongs to the east, etc. This discrepancy does not seem however to trouble their minds at all, and we may safely leave it unexplained."
The Chinese Classics III p.94

The only explanation is God moved the sun to the other side of the earth, and earth flowed into a reverse orbit of the sun. To "safely leave it unexplained" is meaningless. There has to be an explanation. And God moving the sun is this only explanation.

1 Thessalonians 5:21 "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good."

Sure, we need to be careful in accepting evidence that support our belief in God. But we do not want to reject the truth either. The sword is not broken!

Matthew 10:27 "What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops."

The research on this page has never been debunked! And never will be! There is no shame in telling the truth! Christ be magnified!

Philipians 1:15 "Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will:
1:16 The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:
1:17 But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel."

This is the sincere truth!

"King Wan dreamt that he was clothed with the sun and the moon. A phoenix duck sang on mount K'e. In the first month of spring, on the 6th day, the five planets had a conjunction in Fang. Afterwards a male and female phoenix went about Wan's capital with a writing in their beaks, which said: 'The emperor of Yin has no principle, but oppresses and disorders the empire. The great decree is removed: Yin cannot enjoy it longer. The powerful spirits of earth have left it; all the spirits are whistled away. The conjunction of the five planets in Fang brightens all within the four seas.'"
The Annals of the Bamboo Books, Part V the Dynasty of Chow p.143, The Chinese Classics.

Many discredit this record as a dream and not a documented astronomical observation. However, here the sun was setting in the west, and stood still just above and just below the western horizon for 12 hours while the sun moved back 180° from Virgo to Pisces. Thus king Wan would be weary and feel like he was dreaming. The first quarter moon stood still directly above and the sun on the western horizon, thus king Wan dreamt he was clothed in the sun and moon. In this 12 hours, king Wan would grew weary and sleep after a normal 12 hour day, only to wake and see the moon still overhead and the sun still in the west 12 more hours later. NASA replied they are not familiar with this text. In 1968 NASA could easily have followed planetary positions in the Chinese Classics.

From the list of solar eclipse records on page 103 of the Chinese Classics to king Wans dream on page 143 are only 40 pages! Upon reading king Wan's dream they would immediately note the western sky in Scorpio meant the sun was in Virgo - in the first month of Spring! Someone stated they began their year in the fall and had mistakenly recorded the first month with spring. Nevertheless, the truth is king Wan's dream was recorded correctly. At sunset in China they would see the five planets gather directly above in Scorpio as God moved the planets out of the way of the sun in Virgo. Then the sun would stand still just below the western horizon for 12 hours as the sun passed 180° from Virgo to Pisces.

King Wan's dream would give the NASA scientists the reverse orbit. Because orbit is against rotation, in half an orbit earth must be sped up 24 hours around the sun. The sun would need to stand still in the sky for 24 hours to counter the sped up 24 hours. Thus the elapsed time of 24 hours and the missing time of 23 hours and 20 minutes. Because earth's orbit is eccentric, the sped up time must be 23 hours and 20 minutes at the half orbit point when the sun can move back without any effect to earth's orbit. They were still missing 40 minutes to complete 24 hours! Where was there an example of the sun standing still? Joshua 10:12 of course!

Looking into the time of king Wan's dream = February 15, 1240 BC because of the lunar eclipse in his 35th year, September 15, 1205 BC. Looking into the time of Joshua's long day = 1241 BC also because the Exodus was in 1281 BC. Then looking into the time, the same year, the spacemen needed to find the missing 40 minutes. Then the sped up time of the second half reverse orbit would be 24 hours and 40 minutes. The sun would have to move 10° more than 180° when the sun returned Febrary 15, 1240 BC. 10 degrees = 40 minutes - Now it all adds up: the sped up time of the two halves of the reverse orbit year = 24 hours and 40 minutes and 23 hours and 20 minutes = 48 hours.

Long days must be in multiples of 180° = 12 hours. The net total of long days = 48 hours. The sped up time = 48 hours. A continuous watch needs 48 hours of long days by year end to fill in the sped up time of 48 hours. A watch before the sun miracles that year would tell the exact same time when the sun moved back one year later.

The falling/reverse zodiac in the Chinese Classics = earth in a reverse orbit, and this record of the sun in Virgo in Spring instead of in Pisces would be all NASA scientists would need in 1968 to uncover the Missing Day calculations I give here.

The simple model is the sun moving 180° with earth's rotation to stand in the sky for 12 hours. The earth in a revers orbit, rotation is against orbit, so the year must be sped up 48 hours or else there would be 367 days instead of 365 in the year. At the half orbit point, six months later, the sun and planets can move 180° back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit. Then again the sun could stand still in the sky as the sun moved 180° for 12 hours, and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun. Then the next day the sun move back 180° for 12 hours and earth flow into the reverse orbit of the sun. Then one year after the first sun movement the sun move 180° again with earth's rotation to stand still in the sky for 12 hours and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun.

If God sped up the earth 48 hours in reverse around the sun, God would have to completely control earth from going into a higher orbit. Thus, earth's reverse orbit would have to be meticulously controlled as if it were in a normal orbit.

Some people say it is impossible to stop the earth, or move the sun, because there is nothing out there. God did not stop the earth, but God did move the sun. God is there, and there is the hiding of his power.

Habakkuk 3:4 "And his brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power."

3:11 "The sun and moon stood still in their habitation: at the light of thine arrows they went, and at the shining of thy glittering spear."

God is light. God can and has hidden his power. A classic method is this reverse orbit that leaves no net missing time.

Then there would be 48 hours sped up time and 4 X 12 hours long days. 48 hours - 48 hours = no net time difference.

This is only true if the sun had moved 180° and earth had flowed into a reverse orbit of the sun. You can see Fang/Scorpio in the east when the sun is in September. For Spring to be in Scorpio, the sun must have moved 180°. This diagram is from 2300 BC from Chinese emperor Yao, in 1240 BC the eastern constellation at the Fall equinox was Virgo, a month later followed Scorpio.

Here you see the 28 mansions of the lunar zodiac. You see Fang/Scorpio, where the sun is in at autumn, by the E for east. However, the Chinese depicted spring in the east. The year progressing as the day the sun rising in the east and setting in the west. Normally the sun travels more and more toward the east through the year. Thus as earth orbits normally counter clockwise the sun moves from the west to the east through the zodiac. In a reverse orbit, the sun would travel more and more towards the west, like sunrise and sunset. Thus in a reverse clockwise orbit, the sun passes from the east to the west throughout the year. If there was a sun miracle in spring in 2300 BC the sun would be in this Fang/Scorpius in the east of this zodiac. Thus, spring would be in the east. Thus, the Chinese belief Spring is in the East.

If the sun moved 180° in spring, the sun would be, end up, to the east of the zodiac by Fang/Scorpio. Earth precesses one sign every 1000 years. So this diagram of the Chinese zodiac is from 2300 BC. 1000 years later, in the time of Joshua, where you see Scorpio would equal the six day moon directly above, and the sun in Leo/Virgo. Yao became emperor after a long day, Joseph's sun miracle, 1000 years before Joshua. Yao recorded spring in the east after the long day. Spring can only be in the east of the zodiac in a reverse orbit.

For Joshua's long day, and king Wan's dream 1000 years later, you can picture the first quarter moon above in Scorpio and the sun setting in Leo/Virgo in spring! The sun in spring in February should be in Aquarius, the six day moon of king Wan in Taurus!





The sun must be near Pisces in Spring, that is just a fact. This zodiac from Yao has spring in Taurus in 2300 BC. By Joshua's time spring was in Aries. By Jesus' time spring was in Pisces. Chinese spring is 45 days before the spring equinox. Thus February 15 is 45 days before March 31. At the time of Joshua's long day and king Wan the spring equinox was March 31, 10 days after March 21.

Saturn takes 29 years to orbit the sun = the 28 lunar mansions above. Jupiter takes 12 years to orbit the sun = the 12 signs of the zodiac = 12 lunar months a year.

This Julian calendar backs up one day every 128 years. So, from 1241 BC to 1 AD = 10 days the spring equinox backs up to March 21. This is because we use the Julian Calendar before 1 AD = anno Domini = Year of our Lord. In the Julian calendar the year is 365.25 days. This means every four years a day is added like February 29. However, our year is really 365.24 days. This adds up to one extra day every 128 years. From 1 AD, theoretically Jesus' birth, we use the Gregorian Calendar that keeps step with the vernal equinox.

Then, king Wan's dream on February 15, 1240 BC, would mean the sun would be one sign earlier than Aries and Pisces, 45 days earlier, = Aquarius.

One year before king Wan's dream when the sun moved 180° back and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit, in the first sun miracle by Joshua when the sun moved 180° and earth flowed into the reverse orbit, may be the fallen walls of Jericho, perhaps Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC. Thus the sun moved 180° west to the other side of the earth and earth flowed into a reverse orbit of the sun. Thus the sun may have ascended suddenly in the east at 11 PM Friday night for an early attack on Jericho as the Bible states. This might be February 17, 1241 BC and half an orbit from then, 188 days is 11 PM Saturday, August 23, 1241 BC. This is about the same as the half orbit from our Spring equinox to our Fall equinox 186 days 10 hours. Earth is nearest the Sun on January 3, 2013, which is two weeks after the winter solstice.

February 15, 1240 BC is a quarter orbit, 91 days, from earth's nearest approach to the sun, November 15, 1240 BC. Over the past 7000 years earth's nearest approach of the sun has shifted from September to January. Thus the half orbit from 10 AM February 17, 1241 BC to 11 PM August 23, 1241 BC is the 187 days 12 hours. Then because the sun is on the other side of the earth this is 12 hours more, 188 days. Then the sun could move back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit. For there to be 365 days a reverse orbit year earth must speed up 48 hours in its orbit around the sun. Else there would be 367 days a year because rotation is against orbit.

The fall of Jericho was on Saturday. This must have been Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC. Then the sun must move again half an orbit later, also on Saturday because Joshua did not give the people a Sabbath day of rest. Thus the day of Joshua's conquest must have been on a Sabbath, probably August 24, 1241 BC. Then, the sun must return one year after the sun miracle at the fall of Jericho. From Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC to Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC. In the book of Enoch a 364 calendar is used of 52 weeks. Thus if there was a sun miracle on a Sabbath, the sun may return on year later also on a Sabbath. Perhaps the sun miracles of Joshua were noted thus. Or there were more sun miracles on the Sabbath, thus the 364 day calendar.

Exodus 23:29 "I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee."

There was full conquest in the first year, from the fall of Jericho, February 17, 1241 BC to the battle at Joshua's long day, August 24, 1241 BC and Gideon, to the conquest of Merom and Hazor; Barak and Deborah, February 15, 1240 BC. See Joshua 6, 10, 11 and Judges 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

Then we have about 24 hours of missing time in this half orbit unaccounted for. Earth must speed up 24 hours in half a year of 183 days. But this half orbit is 188 days (because the sun is on the other side of earth, so from 10 AM February 17, 1241 BC to 11 PM August 23, 1241 BC is 188 days.) of 365 days, 188/365.2422 X 48 hours = 24 hours 40 minutes.

Earth is nearest the sun in winter = the sped up half of earth's orbit. The two halves 23 hours 20 minutes and 24 hours 40 minutes. The first half from February 17, 1241 BC to Joshua's long day August 24, 1241 BC is 188 days, but is the slower half orbit. Thus, the 23 hours and 20 minutes sped up orbit from the fall of Jericho, February 17, 1241 BC to Joshua's long day, August 24, 1241 BC.

We are still missing 40 minutes from 24 hours at the half orbit of Joshua's long day, just like in the missing day story. The sun may only revolve 350° around the earth when Joshua asked God to make the sun stand still in the sky. Thus the elapsed time would match the missing time of that half orbit exactly.

The elapsed time = time the sun stood still in the sky on Joshua's long day should be 23 hours and 20 minutes. Missing time of the sped up earth reverse orbit, 48 hours, must equal elapsed time the sun stood still or moved east or moved west in 12 hours amounts adding up to 48 hours. The sun must move back 190° half an orbit later, and earth flow out of the reverse orbit. Thus the 10° more than 180° = the missing 40 minutes. Thus king Wan would see the sun stand just below the western horizen for 12 hours, then rise 10° in the west before setting again in the west when the sun returned and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit. Thus king Wan lightened the western sky. Thus the Missing Day story adds up.

Then when the sun returned February 15, 1240 BC, the sun must move 190° east to match the 24:40 minutes missing time of the second half reverse orbit. Thus we may have found the missing 10°. The sun must move 180° back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun February 15, 1240 BC. The sun must also move a further 10° back that day, 190°, to make up for the 40 minutes. The word "about" a whole day fits. The sun stood still in the sky for 23 hours and 20 minutes for Joshua. Then we may have found the missing 40 minutes in the missing day story.

The shortest half orbit, the next half orbit of 177 days, is also the more sped up half orbit, from 12PM August 25, 1241 BC to 12PM February 15, 1240 BC, less 12 hours because the sun is on the other side of the earth = 177 days 12 hours = 365.24/177.5 X 48 / 4 = 24 hours 42 minutes. Or 365 - 188 = 177. There are 363 24 hour long days in reverse orbit. Thus the 360° orbit would end two days earlier than 365 days. Rotation is against orbit, so the number of days and nights would still be 365 days. Nevertheless, from Saturday February 17, 1241 BC to Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC is 364 normal days because of leap year February 29. With long days = 48 hours the length of the year is 363 days + 2 days = 365 days in total length = no net missing time.

Then all three battles, Jericho, Joshua and Merom could all occur on Saturday. Thus Joshua did not give Israel rest on Saturdays of battle. And thus there remains a spiritual rest in Heaven. August 24, 1241 BC Joshua's long day and the sun revolved around the earth. The sun returned a day early, February 15, 1240 BC from February 17, 1241 BC. So 363/176.5 X 48 / 4 = 24.67 hours; .67 X 60 minutes = 40 minutes. 24:40 hours. Therefore there is 24:40 hours missing in the second half reverse orbit. The second half reverse orbit should have the missing 40 minutes, as you can see, it does. You can see the normal sped up autumn/winter orbit is 32 minutes shorter from the graphs below a +16 minutes and a -16 minutes in the equation of time of the normal sped up orbit.

Hebrews 4:8 "For if Joshua had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day."

1 Kings 20:29 "And they pitched one over against the other seven days. And so it was, that in the seventh day the battle was joined: and the children of Israel slew of the Syrians an hundred thousand footmen in one day."

Earth orbits faster when it is nearer the sun in winter. So if you can picture, this applied to the 24 hours sped up half orbit is also 32 minutes shorter = a 23 hours 30 minutes more sped up first half orbit and a 24 hours 30 minutes more sped up second half orbit = 48 hours. The half orbit is 186.5 days. Thus 188 days is 1.5 days longer. Thus at 8 minutes a day sped up reverse orbit (48 X 60)/365.24 = 8 minutes a day, this is 1.5 X 8 = 12 more minutes to the 32 minutes. 32 + 12 minutes is 44 minutes. Thus the sped up second half reverse orbit has 24 hours 40 minutes missing time = sped up time, and the first half reverse orbit has 23 hours 20 minutes missing time equaling the two extra days in a complete reverse orbit. Thus the reverse year is 365.24 days and not 367.24 days.

The analemma from a sun dial "It reaches + or - 16 minutes = 32 minutes maximum difference.

The missing time from earth's sped up orbit that is more than 24 hours, is the missing time of the fall/winter half reverse orbit. Thus, typically, this missing time would be about 30 minutes. Joshua's long day was an exception because from Sabbath to Sabbath is 189 days, not 186 days that equalled 23 hours and 20 minutes, and 24 hours and 40 minutes. For the typical 186 days, this equals 23 hours and 30 minutes, and 24 hours and 30 minutes. Two, half reverse orbits, over fall and winter, together add up to one hour of missing time that must equal one hour of elapsed time. The sun circleling earth at the speed of light, earth in darkness for one hour, would amount to one hour of elapsed time on earth. Together the net result would be no net missing time.

From lunar eclipse, (barely visible in Israel) October 7, 32 AD to the lunar eclipse, April 3, 33 AD = sunset the day of Jesus' crucifixion. From lunar eclipse, October 19, 31 AD to lunar eclipse (not visible in Israel) April 14, 32 AD. Sun miracles may have occurred on these lunar eclipse days and be mistaken for just naturally occurring lunar eclipses. From eclipse to eclipse are exaclty half orbits.

These two 30 minute segments may be like two ministers of the gospel speaking for 30 minutes each, for a full hour.

However, we are calculating the sped up 48 hours a full year, and the half point portion of that reverse orbit. Thus, two half winter orbits have 30 more minutes sped up time than 24 hours = one full hour.

The sped up year is 363.24 days long in time, 365.24 days in sunrises. Even from Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC to Friday, February 14, 1240 BC is 363 days because of leap year February 29. If the sun returned on Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC the duration of the reverse orbits may be counted as 363 days because Saturday August 24, 1241 BC earth was not revolving around the sun, but the sun around the earth. Even that day the sun rose in the west and set in the east. Thus God must have moved the sun from inertia to 40 million miles an hour presently, then slowed the movement of the sun to 20 million miles an hour to stand still in the sky for Joshua for 24 hours and 360°. Then God must have hastened the sun from noon to set in the east at 40 million miles again and stop below the eastern horizon.

Then God must have moved the sun in the other direction 20 million miles an hour to suddenly rise in the east and ascend the sky. Earth must complete 360° around the sun in reverse in one year less two days because of the sped up orbit. Thus the reverse orbit started Saturday morning February 17, 1241 BC and the sun moved back Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC on king Wan's dream exactly two days short a year. Then there were two days worth, 48 hours, of longer days to give the normal 365.24 days of time of a normal year. Thus at the end of the reverse orbit year, noon, February 15, 1240 BC the day is extended 12 hours. Thus, the sun returns at midnight February 15, 1240 BC in time, after 12 hours of noon time. The longer days together with the shorter time orbit still equal 365 days.

"Crack making on day xinmao, 28, Ji divined: The King should host Jupiter. It will not rain. Divined: It should be 2 penned up sheep. 2nd month."
Heji, 25148

February 15, 1240 BC is day 28 of cycle 60. Jupiter was to be beside the sun that day. King Wan records the sun miracle in the first month. The emperor of China may have recorded the sun miracle the same date, February 15, 1240 BC, as the 2nd month.

The five planets were in conjunction in Fang/Scorpio above the setting sun, in Virgo, at the beginning of king Wan's dream. Jupiter in its orbit, if Jupiter did not move 180° at the first sun movement, February 17, 1241 BC. Then when the sun moved back 180° February 15, 1241 BC, Jupiter would also move 180° and appear just above the sun in its normal position when the sun set, after 12 hours of sunset, just above the sun. Thus Jupiter would move 180° from Scorpio to Aries, February 15, 1240 BC. Thus perhaps the reason for the Chinese to feel moved to sacrifice to Jupiter.

Then the sun returned 365 days after it first moved at midnight February 16, 1241 BC. Thus there is no net missing time and solar eclipse paths.

Chinese solar eclipse records on oracle bones - the day is given but not the year: day 53 of cycle 60 = March 4, 1250 BC and day 10 of cycle 60 = May 26, 1217 BC are on the same day of 60 from January 27, 2636 BC, no days missing, and are exactly as we would have predicted them to be back from the present to any time in the past.

Because the Chinese solar eclipse records are of the day and not the year, they are not dependable.

Nevertheless, days of 60 from January 26, 2636 BC are consistent for all Chinese solar eclipse records.

To say there are no records of solar eclipses before 1217 BC is wrong. Even the 1217 BC eclipse on day 9 of 60 is just a guess.

Day 10 of cycle 60 could be the full moon = passover Friday/Saturday March 19, 1204 BC. There was a lunar eclipse visible from Israel March 19, 1204 BC just as there was a lunar eclipse visible from Israel March 13, 4 BC. Herod died March 31, 4 BC or at the end of the lunar month March 27, 4 BC.

If this solar eclipse record was a type of Jesus' sacrifice and three hours of darkness at noon = the evening sun in China darkened at sunset. Thus, the sun would appear to be eclipsed, but would rather be darkened in a sun miracle.

177 days before would be September 23, 1205 BC, day 13 of cycle 60 = 177 days ahead = day 10 of cycle 60 March 19, 1205 BC. King Wan stated this lunar eclipse on a day 13 instead of a day 15 was an omen for a change in emperor of China. This September 23 was day 15 of the lunar month = time of a lunar eclipse, by coincidence was day 13 of cycle 60. Nevertheless, this day appears it may be a sun miracle rather than a typical lunar eclipse to foretell Jesus' birth. The first sun miracle of a two or three year reverse orbit be September 23, 1207 BC, 1200 years to 7 BC, to foretell Jesus' birth September 12, 7 BC.

"Divined on day guiyou [10]: (Charge:) The Sun was eclipsed in the evening: we should report it to [ancesor] Shang Jia."
[Heji, 33695]

This solar eclipse record in Egypt is true: The new moon for II Aket 1 is September 7, 1365 BC. As are three more solar eclipse records from the same period in Egypt.

Thus, all dates work going back before Joshua's long day and after.

The main part is Joshua's long day is hidden. The sun was moved to the other side of earth, and earth's orbit sped up 48 hours so there were the same 365 days a year because orbit was against rotation. These are real events, but hidden.

However, the sun should return 365 days, exactly one year, later. Yao recorded the reverse zodiac in his first year was 366 days. This would make king Wan's dream Monday at sunset in China, February 17, 1240 BC. Then the sixth day of the moon, and the sixth day of the lunar zodiac in Scorpio, would match king Wan's dream much better. Thus the sun must have been in Virgo that February 17, 1240 BC, or February 15, 1240 BC, and the moon six lunar mansions away in Scorpio. The first lunar mansion in the 28 lunar mansion chart starts at Corvus/Virgo. Thus the six day moon was six days old and in the sixth day of the lunar zodiac.

At my first attempt to uncover Joshua's long day, at a presentation at the Penticton astronomy club, Joshua's Long Day presented to Okanagan Astronomy Society (now part of ocrasc.ca) on October 13, 2005. I started with a sun miracle in February and 186 days later, half an orbit later, the sun move back in August, and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun on Joshua's long day. The thought was a 12 hour long day in February and a 12 hour long Joshua's long day in August = 24 hours.

Soon after this I discovered there were 186.5 days from the spring equinox to the fall equinox, and 179 days from the fall equinox to the spring equinox. Thus this 187 days of 365 days meant 24 hours and 40 minutes. To be exact, a half orbit means 24 hours and 30 minutes.

In this presentation I assumed 12 hours long day in February for king Wan and 12 hours long day in August for Joshua's long day. Because the sun moved 180° each time = 12 hours each time X 2 = 24 hours.

It was not to be so simple. Earth's elliptical orbit would not let it be so simple.

The sun must move back at the half orbit point = 187 days. In 186.5 days of a half orbit there are 24 hours and 30 minutes. In 188 days there are 24 hours and 40 minutes. Thus there has to be 30 or 40 missing minutes in a half orbit.

From Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC to Friday, August 24, 1241 BC is 188 days = 24 hours and 40 minutes.

Time on earth, say on a watch, would be 12 hours out of step with the sun on the other side of earth. The sun suddenly rising in the east on Jericho, and moving 180° west, would make 12 hours of sped up time. The sped up earth would make a further 24 hours of sped up time at the half orbit, plus or minus 30 or 40 minutes depending which half orbit of the year.

February 17, 1241 BC the sun may have moved 180° west for a sudden sunrise on Jericho. The eart would be sped up 24 hours also by Joshua's long day, August 24, 1241 BC.

Because rotation was against orbit in the reverse orbit, earth must be sped up around the sun about 24 hours in that half orbit. However, that half orbit is longer than half the year. Thus, earth must be sped up 24 hours and 40 minutes over 188 days, and not just 24 hours.

This 40 minutes may be multiplied many times, every time, every year, God moved the sun. Thus, the missing 40 minutes had to be found.

Thus there would be 24 hours of the sun standing still at noon, of long days, in total. This left 40 minutes.

At that point in my presentation at Penticton I was at the same place as these NASA scientists. 40 minutes had to be found.

Some time after this I discovered the whole year of 48 hours. There would be 23 hours 20 minutes plus 24 hours 40 minutes = 48 hours. And no net missing time, of even a minute.

"40 minutes had to be found because you are still in trouble 1,000 years from now. Forty minutes had to be found because it can be multiplied many times over in orbits.." - This reference to 40 minutes in orbit is key to identifying the above model with the missing day story. Thus the Missing Day Story, though adapted to Totten's work, rings true. Totten's book on Joshua's long day was reprinted in 1968. The forty missing minutes is there. But there is no mention of the forty minutes being multiplied many times over in orbits. Harold Hill may have heard of NASA discovering the missing 24 hours, and a missing 40 minutes, like I have done and not understanding it, he used Totten's book instead.

"They were checking the position of the sun, moon, and planets out in space where they would be 100 years and 1000 years from now." - When the sun moved to the other side of the earth, the planets must move 180° also. They must revolve around the sun so to appear in the same position at the same time of night as they normally would have in their seasons. Then half a reverse orbit later the sun may move back 180° and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun. The planets would move exactly 180° from where they were appearing in their seasons to appear in their normal position when the sun moved 180° back and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun. This exact mechanics could also tell the space scientists to look at the half orbit point and discover they were missing 24 hours in earth's sped up orbit at that point.

Only there would be some 40 minutes left over in missing time that had to be countered by a second half reverse orbit beginning right after the first half reverse orbit ended. After the sun and planets moved back exactly 180° one year later there would be no net missing time at all.

The most probable dates are the fall of Jericho, Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC, Joshua's long day Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC and the battle of Merom Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC. From the Chinese reckoning Saturday evening February 15, 1240 BC could begin the sixth lunar day of the month.

Possibly the fall of Jericho was Saturday, March 16, 1241 BC. Joshua's long day Friday, September 20, 1241 BC, and the battle of Merom, Tuesday, March 18, 1240 BC. March 18, 1240 BC was day 60 of cycle 60. King Wan's dream was on lunar day 6. March 18, 1240 BC was both lunar day 6 and day 60 of cycle 60. Then the day 6 may have been of double coincidence of day 60 but not Saturday. Possibly this picture taken of Gibeon and the going down of Bethoron from Ramah September 16, 2010 would be the same sun seasonal position as at September 20, 1241 BC. This is because the autumnal equinox was October 1, 1241 BC Julian and September 21, 2010 Gregorian. Thus this 10 day difference means September 21, 1241 BC is about September 16, 2010 AD.

Nevertheless, all three events, the fall of Jericho, Joshua's long day and the battle of Merom may have occurred on Saturday, the Sabbath, one month earlier.

Hebrews 4:8 "For if Joshua had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.
4:9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
4:10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his."

God's day of rest in Genesis was on the seventh day. Thus if Joshua did not give Israel rest, the battles of conquest should have occurred on Saturday, the day of rest.

Then the fall of Jericho Saturday February 17, 1241 BC, Joshua's long day, the sixth lunar day of the eighth month, Saturday August 24, 1241 BC, the battle of Merom, the fourth lunar day of the first month, Saturday February 15, 1240 BC. February 15, 1240 BC appears as the fourth day moon. However, the Chinese counted the day from sunset. Thus the moon passed the sun late February 11 and the sixth day started sunset February 15, 1240 BC. The sun half an orbit before August 24, 1241 BC was in Virgo and the six day moon between Libra and Scorpio.

1 Kings 6:37 "In the fourth year was the foundation of the house of the LORD laid, in the month Zif:
6:38 And in the eleventh year, in the month Bul, which is the eighth month, was the house finished throughout all the parts thereof, and according to all the fashion of it. So was he seven years in building it."

Thus Solomon's temple was finished the same eighth month as Joshua's conquest of Canaan. The temple began in 1041 BC = 240th year from the Exodus in 1281 BC. Thus the 50th jubile would begin that 1041 BC from Joshua's conquest in 1241 BC. Thus the first year of Solomon be 1044 BC, just after the 49 year jubile 1045 BC from 1241 BC. Thus, from the finish of the temple in the eighth year, Solomon's 11th year, 1034 BC to Jesus' birth in 7 BC = 1026 years. From Jacob and his family sojourning in Egypt in 2307 BC to the Exodus in 1281 BC = the same 1026 years.

A prayer of Moses. There was 1026 years from Jacob entering Egypt in 2307 BC, year 430 Egyptian sothis from 2737 BC, to the Exodus of Moses at the end of the 1456 year Egyptian calendar in 1281 BC.

There was 2026 years from Noah's flood in 3307 BC to Moses crossing the Red/Reed Sea in 1281 BC.

Psalm 90:4 "For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
90:5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up."

Thus Solomon would be in his 38th year of reign in 1007 BC. Jesus was born in 7 BC and Jesus lived 38 years to 33 AD.

From David's birth in 1114 BC to the first captivity in 601 BC (the second in 591 BC) = 513 years = half of 1026 years.

The solar eclipse record was for this year 601 BC was on day 11 of cycle 60, when the solar eclipse took place on day 60 of cycle 60. Day 11 would be the Day of Atonement in Israel, the 10th day of the seventh Hebrew lunar month October 1, 601 BC. This was about the time Jehoiakim was taken into Babylon.

From the first attempt to rebuild the temple in 520 BC to Jesus' birth in 7 BC = 513 years. The second attempt began in Darius' second year, 507 BC = 500 years to Jesus' birth in 7 BC.

The first quarter moon as recorded in king Wan's dream is the same position the sun and moon were in one year after the fall of Jericho when the sun moved back by moving with earth's rotation and standing still at noon 12 hours for the battle of Merom. Thus the sun move back 180° in those 12 hours February 15, 1240 BC on the sixth lunar day or sixth lunar zodiac position.

"While the beginning of a day is dawn, a five-planet conjunction occurring at dawn, with a new moon, and the start of spring would truly be the beginning of all cycles, he said. For calendar makers, such a moment would also be an ideal starting point for counting days, months, years and planetary periods."
http://manetheren.cl.msu.edu/~vanhoose/astro/0001.html

The sun returning one year after the fall of Jericho would see a six day moon, a five planet conjunction as the planets moved out of the way of the moving sun at sunset, in year 36 of cycle 60 and year 1 of king Wan.

"In his (Te-sin) 22nd year, in winter, he had great hunting along the Wei." "On the kea-tsze day, in the last month of Autumn, a red bird came to Fung..My ancestor, the recorder Ch'ow, divined once for Yu about hunting; and then he met with Kaou-yaou, - from an omen like that which has now occurred."

This sun miracle may have occurred on November 16, 1207 BC on day one of cycle 60. Or this may be day one of cycle 60 September 21, 1207 BC on day 17 of the lunar month. This may have been a prophesy of Jesus' birth in September 13, 7 BC also on day 17 of the lunar month. The ark of Noah rested on the mountains on the 17th day of the 7th month. The five planets were in conjunction. Only this was fall and not spring. Even king Wan's dream was spring but not a new moon. Thus the desire to find a grand epoch, a beginning of cycles. The beginning of cycles would also include the sun moving 180° in spring to Virgo and the sun passing from east to west through the year in the reverse orbit. Thus spring would be in the east.

There would be a lunar eclipse recorded in September 24, 1205 BC, in year 35 of king Wan. The sun would move from the first lunar zodiac in Virgo to the 14th lunar zodiac in Pisces. Thus the Chinese would be encouraged to look for a beginning epoch.

Perhaps encouraged by these miracles in the 13th century BC, that nearly match this epoch, their search continued till 1280 AD when they concluded such a magical event never did occur.

Then the children of Israel would pass through the river Jordan on dry land Sunday, March 3, 1241 BC and keep the Passover Friday, March 9, 1241 BC. Then Joshua's long day may have been the same date as Jesus' birth. Back 9 days from September 21, 1241 BC is the same tropical date September 12, 7 BC. Thus Joshua's conquest, August 24, 1241 BC in the beginning of the eighth month would also be about the same date as when Jesus was born.

King Wan's dream was on the sixth day of the first lunar month of spring. However, the sun was 180° away. So before the sun moved back the Chinese would need to keep track of the calendar because they would not be able to tell what season they were in by the position of the sun in the zodiac. If king Wan's dream was March 18, 1240 BC there must be an example of the Chinese beginning their year in March and not January/February. An example may be the sixth lunar month were in there was darkness in 591 BC September 7. September 1 began the sixth lunar month in China. The sixth day be September 7, 591 BC. The darkness and not an eclipse was on the seventh day of the sixth lunar month on day 40 of cycle 60.

Jeremiah 6:4 "Prepare ye war against her; arise, and let us go up at noon. Woe unto us! for the day goeth away, for the shadows of the evening are stretched out."

Thus the solar eclipse recorded at sunset in China = noon in israel, on day 40 of cycle 60, September 7, 591 BC. No day of 40 of cycle 60 matches any solar eclipse for many years before and after this 591 BC. This same darkness is described when Jesus was on the cross from the sixth hour of the day = noon.

Then April 7, 591 BC began the first month of Spring and the darkness at the fall of Jerusalem was in the sixth month in China, day 40 of cycle 60, September 7, 591 BC as the Chinese recorded the "eclipse". However, there is the possibililty the sun returned one year later Sunday, September 7, 590 BC on the full moon that was the fall of Jerusalem. September 7, 590 BC was the 17th day of the 7th Hebrew month. Jesus birthday may have been Sunday, September 13, 7 BC the 17th day of the 7th Hebrew month. Exactly one week earlier, Sunday, September 6, 7 BC was Yom Kippur, the day of Atonement. There may have been a sun miracle half an orbit back from September 7, 591, being the new moon, March 7, 591 BC.

Ezekiel 32:1 "And it came to pass in the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, in the first day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,"

This first day of the 12th month may be the first day of the week, and allowing for the new moon not visible behind clouds till Sunday, March 2, 590 BC. Thus this 12th year be the destruction of Jerusalem. The first month would begin on the new moon March 7, 591 BC. Then a sun miracle half an orbit later, the "eclipse" of September 7, 591 BC.

Ezekiel 32:17 "It came to pass also in the twelfth year, in the fifteenth day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,"

One year after September 7, 591 BC, is the 15th day of the month, September 7, 590 BC. The sun may have returned one year later, September 7, 590 BC. Thus the fall of Jerusalem may have been about September 7, 590 BC.

Ezekiel 30:20 "And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first month, in the seventh day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,"

The first month may be the civil calendar. Thus the solar eclipse in China, September 7, 591 BC, may have occurred in this eleventh year. Then the destruction of Jerusalem follow September 7, 590 BC.

Jeremiah 39:2 "And in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, the city was broken up."

Ezekiel 33:21 "And it came to pass in the twelfth year of our captivity, in the tenth month, in the fifth day of the month, that one that had escaped out of Jerusalem came unto me, saying, The city is smitten."

This eleventh year and twelfth year must be the same. A sun miracle, Sunday, August 11, 591 BC on the ninth of Av and a sun miracle 177 days later, half an orbit later on the 5th of the tenth month, Sunday, February 2, 590 BC and the sun may return and earth flow out of the reverse orbit. Then the sun miracle of darkness September 7, 591 BC may be the sun revolving around earth at the speed of light for one hour at noon Israel time and at sunset China day 40 of cycle and the seventh day of the fifth month in Israel the same day.

Gravity travels at the speed of light, as does light. Thus if God moved the sun around the earth, not only would the sun be dark for about one hour, but the gravity pull on tides would not be felt as well. No light no gravity pull either. No light from the sun and the moon would be dark. No light from the sun and the two innermost planets, Mercury, Venus, would stop reflecting light from the sun in minutes.

It would be about half an hour for Mars to appear dark because it would take 16 minutes for light to get to Mars from the sun and 8 minutes for light to get to earth from Mars. It would take about an hour for light to stop coming from Jupiter and Saturn. 80 minutes for light from the sun to reach Saturn, and about the same 80 minutes for light from Saturn to reach earth = 3 hours. Thus these two outermost planets could still be visible on earth within the one hour 360° circuit of the sun. Although Jupiter and Saturn would have a delayed one hour of darkness.

Studies of ancient lunar and solar tides are only now being researched in depth. Eventually, the truth will be known God moved the sun. But the results will not be what man wants.

If God moved the sun at the speed of light and moved with the sun, time would stop on the sun while continuing on earth. On other times the half hour of left over time of an half reverse orbit may be countered by the sun moving 180°. Thus the sun could appear dark in Israel while the sun revolved 180° around the earth from horizon to horizon. Because time would stop on the sun, the sun would appear dark. Rather than the almost one hour to complete 360° to counter two half reverse orbits.

Thus a clock on the earth before and after would tell the same exact time, matching the day and the hour and the minute and the second of the day.

Matthew 27:45 "Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"

Isaiah 16:3 "Take counsel, execute judgment; make thy shadow as the night in the midst of the noonday; hide the outcasts; bewray not him that wandereth."

Amos 8:9 "And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day:"

Isaiah 13:10b "the sun shall be darkened in his going forth,"

In both Amos and Isaiah the sun is darkened in his going forth. Then God must have moved the sun around the earth at the speed of light. Time would stop on the sun, thus there would be no light for almost one hour.

Then the sun would reappear in the 3 PM position at 1 PM.

The sun must move 360° in 55 minutes to travel at the speed of light and be completely dark. There must be two fall/winter half orbits leaving 30 minutes each in missing time = 60 minutes. From the fall equinox to the spring equinox are 179 days. 179/365.2 X 48 hours = 23 hours and 30 minutes. This half orbit should have 30 minutes of more sped up time than 24 hours, because the sped up half of fall/winter should have the 30 more minutes of sped up earth = 24 hours and 30 minutes of sped up earth. The exact half orbit must have exactly 30 minutes more than 24 hours of sped up earth. To equal the one hour of the sun moving at the speed of light, two left over minutes of the 24 hours must equal 2 X 30 minutes.

Thus, there would be no net missing time on earth. A clock on earth would not show an hour of elapsed time. A watch from any time before two years before, two years later after the sun returned, would show the exact time of day that would normally be on earth.

Thus, the total of the two fall/winter half reverse orbits must equal 60 minutes, leaving 5 minutes more than the 55 minutes of sun travel at the speed of light after the 360° = a 3 PM sun dial position one hour after the 12 PM darkness start time.

Thus, this five more minutes of 60 minutes = 5/60 X 24 hours = two hours. Then, earth would rotate one hour west over the hour the sun was moved around the earth. And the sun would move a further two more hours west = three hours in total. Thus, a sun dial before would tell the time of noon, 12 PM, and the sun dial after would tell for 3 PM = the ninth hour.

Then there would also be the two more hours on the sun dial before sunset. The sun may move west to east after sunset, rising in the west the following Saturday, Sabbath day, and setting in the east, and it become dark, before suddenly and brilliantly rising in the east. The total net movements would leave no net missing time on earth.

Then Orion that would normally start to appear at 7 PM, after sunset at 6 PM, when Orion would be setting, would instead appear with the stars at 5 PM above. Orion would still set by 8 PM. Earth's rotation has not changed. But the sun would be two hours to the west. Thus, that night when Orion would hardly appear before setting, Orion would be bright in the night sky above when it got dark after sunset, April 3, 33 AD.

Orion should appear just to the east of the sun, when the sun was darkened. The stars may not have appeared. But the sun would be darkened so much that the stars, Orion, should appear overhead.

The sun revolving 360° around the earth at noon in a straight line would appear to move up 23° then down 23°. In Hawaii in May my shadow was almost non existant. Thus, this verse of the noon day shadow may describe the movement of the shadow at noon while the sun in its revolution arount the earth appears to move up and down.

This may have been in Azariah's 38th year of his life, in the 18th year of his reign, in 830 BC. Thus Azariah being 38, the same age as Jesus when he was crucified, the darkness being a type of Christ.

Perhaps king Wan's dream was on Tuesday, March 18, 1240 BC rather than February 16, 1240 BC. However, this battle of Merom could not occur on Saturday. Joshua did not give Israel rest should mean all three battles occurred on Saturday. Also, the lunar days are counted from Virgo day one of the 28 lunar signs. Then, the sun in Virgo in February 15, 1240 BC, and the moon in the sixth lunar mansion, Scorpio. Thus the six day moon in the first month of spring after sunset. Then, the sun stand still at the sunset position for 12 hours while earth rotates, and now on the other side of earth, earth would flow back into the regular direction of orbit.

The first lunar day of 28 is Jue in Virgo, Kang in Virgo, Di in Libra, Fang in Scorpio, Xin in Scorpio, and day 6 Wei in Scorpio.

The best way is to square PI. The area of a quadrant is A X B X PI / 4. For earth's current elliptical orbit: So the shortest distance to the sun is 147,000,000 Kilometers. The longest distance is 153,000,000 K. The distance at the equinox is 149,000,000 K. So 147 X 149 X 3.14159265 / 2 = 34405.151. 153 X 149 X 3.14159265 / 2 = 35809.443. 34405.151 + 35809.443 = 70214.594. 70214.594 / 34405.151 = 2.04081. 2.04081 X 48 / 2 = 24.50 hours = 24:30 hours. The same missing 30 minutes. 48 hours over 365.24 days = 7.9 minutes a day. Then add a day and a half to get to Joshua's Long Day = 1.5 X 8 minutes and we have the missing 40 minutes. 30 + 10 = 40.

The nearest, furthest and half orbit point are not quite the solstices and equinoxes. Thus the distances above match the dates February 17, 1241 BC, August 24, 1241 BC and February 15, 1240 BC. Even so, today the equinoxes match these dates in distances from the sun to what they were on these dates of sun miracles in 1240 BC. Thus, the summer half orbit of 186.5 days today match this first half orbit from the fall of Jericho. Then to add a day and a half give 188 days. "The elapsed time that was missing back in Joshua's day was 23 hours and 20 minutes". The long day was 23:20 hours in elapsed time matching the missing time in that half orbit. The long days must add up to 48 hours in both half orbits. Thus, the second half orbit must have 24:40 minutes in missing time to add up to 48 hours.

Thus the 10 degrees added up to 40 minutes and king Wan would see the sunset. the sun stay at sunset and first quarter moon directly overhead, and 12 hours later the sun rise 10 degrees above the western horizon. Thus king Wan dreamt he was clothed in the sun and the moon.

Possibly these dates may be put forward one month; the fall of Jericho, Saturday, March 16, 1241 BC, Joshua's long day, Friday, September 20, 1241 BC and king Wan's dream on the Chinese six day moon, Tuesday, March 18, 1240 BC. Then this picture taken noon September 16, 2010 would show the noon day light at the same time of year Joshua asked God to make the sun stand still. September 20, 1241 BC Julian is September 11, 2010 because the fall equinox in 1241 BC was October 1 Julian and not our September 22 in the Gregorian calendar we use from 1 AD that keeps the dates and seasons intact. Thus if Jesus was born September 12, 7 BC, the day the sun stood still for Joshua would be the same day Jesus, Joshua, was born.

However, the six day moon in king Wan's dream could not occur on Saturday March 15 the second day moon unless this was counted from the sixth lunar mansion Scorpio, but lunar day two.

Nevertheless, the lunar dates and Saturday Sabbaths work best with the fall of Jericho, Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC, Joshua's long day, Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC and the battle of Merom, Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC.

August 24, 1241 BC was day 33 of cycle 60 in China. Normally, the Big Dipper points to Arcturus at 12 PM overhead in August/September. Thus Arcturus is invisible beside the noon day sun. If the sun is on the other side of earth, Arcturus passes directly overhead at midnight. Thus the Chinese may have recorded the Big Dipper in this unusual position on Joshua's Long Day in Israel. The sun may have rose in the west on Joshua's Long Day. Thus, Arcturus would pass over China at midnight as God moved the sun east. Then again during the 24 hours of the longer day China be in darkness and again see Arcturus pass over at night.

The sun rising in the west and setting in the east may be compared to changing sprinklers. If you move the sprinkler back and forth instead of starting again from the beginning, the net effect is a loss in coverage of one sixth. Likewise, the loss in the coverage of sunlight would also be one sixth.

Crack-making on day bingshen[33], in the evening: on the next ding [34] day we should perform a bi-sacrifice to the Northern Dipper (dou)

Crack-making on day yiwei [32]: on this day we should perform the you-ritual to the Dipper and to the fa. Use this.

The fortieth year eleventh month when Moses died should have been the eleventh month November 26, 1242 BC from the first month 14th day, Friday, March 30, 1281 BC. Then Miriam, Aaron and Moses died on the first day of the week as well as the first day of the lunar month. Miriam died Sunday, the first day of the week, the first day of the first month, February 5, 1242 BC. Aaron died Sunday, the first day of the week, the first day of the fifth month, June 4, 1242 BC. Moses died, the first day of the week, the first day of the eleventh month, November 26, 1242 BC. Then Friday, January 26, 1241 BC was the first day of Nissan. Sunday, February 4, 1241 BC was the 10th day when Israel crossed Jordan.

Acts 7:23 "But when he was well-nigh forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel."

Thus Moses was about 39 years old being 1322 BC. This was about the same age as Jesus, 38 1/2 years old when he was crucified in 33 AD. Double 38 1/2 = 77 years. 50 year cycles from this date to 29 AD when Jesus began his ministry - no year 0.

Then the manna ceased to fall that Sunday February 4, 1241 BC. Thursday, February 8, 1241 BC was the Passover. Sunday, February 11, 1241 BC, Joshua circled Jericho once. Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC, Joshua conquered Jericho. 188 days later, Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC the sun stood still for Joshua. Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC was the battle of Merom and king Wan's dream. Then the lunar eclipse September 24, 1205 BC that was counted as in king Wan's 35th year was actually his 36th year, 35 and a half years had gone by. There may have been a sun miracle Friday, May 9, 1206 BC on the 13th day of the first lunar month of spring in king Wan's 35th year. The full moon, when a naturally occurring lunar eclipse can happen, was one day later on May 10, 1206 BC.

Thus the sun miracle both on lunar day 13 and day 13 of cycle 60, May 9, 1206 BC. The year may have been counted from the new moon April 25, 1206 BC. The Chinese usually counted the beginning of the year in spring. April 1, 1206 BC was the vernal equinox. The 13th day of the lunar month thus seemed a day early for a lunar eclipse and thus was interpreted as a sign by king Wan of his appointment of heaven.

The birthday of the dragon was the 13th day of the sixth month in China. New years began in September and in February.

The Keatze day, day one of cycle sixty, could have been a sun miracle to point to Jesus' birth September 13, 7 BC. Thus a sun miracle on the 17th lunar day of the seventh Hebrew month, be on September 21, 1207 BC. The Chinese started their autumn in August and their calendar was lunar. Thus September could have been their last month of autumn. Then just like the sun miracle at the same time as the lunar eclipse in September 15, 5 BC when the sun moved back two years after Jesus' birth. Thus the difference of 2 days from September 21, 1207 BC to September 23, 1205 BC; from Jesus' birth September 13, 7 BC, to the lunar eclipse September 15, 5 BC. Also, the September 21 date in 1207 BC would equal a September 13 date in 7 BC because the autumn equinox in 1207 BC was October 1 and the autumn equinox in 7 BC was September 22.

Then Jesus' crucifixion be the 490th year from the wall of Jerusalem being complete in 458 BC, April 3, 33 AD. And also be from the cycle of 49 years from 1242 BC unbroken. Then Jesus' ministry from his reading in Luke 4 to begin the jubile in the 50th year on Yom Kippur, Friday, September 9, 29 AD, be three and a half years to Jesus' crucifixion, April 3, 33 AD.

Tacitus recorded the phoenix appeared in Egypt in 34 AD. The appearing of the phoenix mean the phoenix flew to the sun and moved the sun to the other side of the earth. This appearing of the phoenix may be when the sun bowed down suddenly at noon when Jesus was crucified April 3, 33 AD. Or the sun moved that Friday night and or that Sunday morning. Thus the record be from 33 AD.

Luke 4:25 "But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;

Jesus quoted Isaiah 61 on Yom Kippur, the 10th day of the seventh Hebrew month = Friday, September 9, 29 AD, on the jubile year, 50th year. The 50th year from Joshua's conquest in 1241 BC to the fall of Jerusalem in 591 BC. Then 70 years of captivity to 521 BC. Then 50 year jubiles to September 9, 29 AD.

From Joshua's conquest in 1241 BC began the 50 year jubile and the 49 year jubile. Likewise Joseph, Joshua's distant father, became governor April 1, 2316 BC, at the same time the sun stood still for 10 days in China, whereupon Yao became emperor. The 50 year jubile ended September 7, 591 BC 70 years to begin again in 521 BC. The 49 year jubile did not have this gap. The 50 year jubile ending September 29 AD to begin Jesus' three and a half year ministry to end April 3, 33 AD the end of the 49 year jubile.

This means God must have planned the conquest of Palestine in 1241 BC, and the 40 years in the wilderness from 1281 BC, and the 70 year captivity from 591 BC to 521 BC. This because Abraham was born about October 18, 2607 BC, 2600 years before Jesus to the day, the 17th day of the seventh lunar month, September 12, 7 BC.

This Julian calendar Before Christ, was out one day every 128 years. Thus October 18 in 2607 BC is September 27 in 7 BC. This is five days after the fall equinox September 22. In years AD = Anno Domini = Year of our Lord, we use the Gregorian calendar. Before Christ, BC, we use the Julian calendar. The Julian calendar fall back one day every 128 years. The Gregorian Calenda corrects and keeps the fall September 22 the same date.

Thus Abraham was born in the same seventh lunar month, and the same 17th day of the lunar month.

And many many Bible dates and Chinese emperor dates point to Jesus' birth September 12, 7 BC and Jesus' crucifixion on April 3, 33 AD.

Some assume because Joseph was 30 when he appeared before Pharaoh that Jesus was 30 when he began his ministry. However, Joseph was 38 at the beginning of the seven years of famine, David 38 when he was made King of all Israel. Thus, Jesus' ministry from his 35th year to his 38th year April 3, 33 AD.

Thus Jesus' ministry was three and a half years. However, Jesus must have been born the 17th lunar day of the 7th month, in September 13, 7 BC. Many Chinese records of sun miracles occur on dates like 907 BC = 900 years before Jesus' birth. The Armenian Sothis 1460 year may have ended in 907 BC back from 552 AD.

The Armenian calendar uses the calendar era of AD 552, reflecting the separation of the Armenian Apostolic Church from the Roman Church.

However, previously the Armenian calendar may have ended 76 years earlier, in 476 BC. Likewise, the Egyptian calendar dates of Pharaohs should be 76 years further back.

1 Kings 14:25 "And it came to pass in the fifth year of king Rehoboam, that Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem:"

This fifth year = 1001 BC not 925 BC. Pharaoh Merneptah died April 5, 1281 BC not May 1205 BC. Thus, when the Armenian calendar was matched to the Egyptian calendar there may be the same 76 year difference.

Likewise Jacob and his sons sojourned in Egypt in the 430th Egyptian sothis year 2307 BC = 2300 years before Jesus' birth. By almost all accounts Jesus must have been crucified April 3, 33 AD. This makes Jesus thirty five when he began his ministry and not thirty as was assumed in Luke's account. Thus Jesus was in his 30th decade, not begining his 30th year.

Counting from when Moses was 40; 1281 BC - 40 years = 1321 BC. Then counting 50 year cycles to the first year of Jesus' ministry in 29 AD. 27 X 50 = 1350 years. Then counting 49 year cycles from the death of Ramses II in 1291 BC to Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD; 27 X 49 = 1323 years = 1291 BC + 33 AD. There is no zero BC.

The next passover is from John 2:13 spring 30 AD. Then a passover from John 5:1 in spring 31 AD. Then a passover from John 6:4 in spring 32 AD. The last passover from John 19 April 3, 33 AD.

"Now that our Saviour taught his preaching three years, is demonstrated both by other necessary reasonings, as out of the holy Gospels, and out of Josephus's writings, who was a wise man among the Hebrews, & etc."
The Complete Works of Josephus, Dissertation 1, p.641

Josephus wrote there were records of sun miracles kept in the Temple.

Ezekiel 1:1 "Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.
1:2 In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachin's captivity,"

Ezekiel 4:5 "For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel.
4:6 And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year."

The thirtieth year of the 50 year jubile was this very year 611 BC. Back from 591 BC 11 years of Zedekiah, then back 11 years of Joiakim is 613 BC. Then back two more years from rounding and short reigns is 615 BC. Then Jehoiachim's fifth year was 611 BC which also was the thirtieth year of the count of the fiftieth jubile ending September 7, 591 BC. Then Jehoiachim was taken in 610 BC which was the first year of Nebuchadnezzar, because Nebuchadnezzar's nineteenth year was the captivity in 591 BC.

Back 390 years from this 30th year of the 50 year jubile from 1241 BC: 611 BC + 390 = 1001 BC when Solomon died and the kingdom was taken from Judah. Then 40 more years back to the building of the Temple in Jerusalem in 1041 BC. From Solomon's first year in 1044 BC is his 38th year in 1007 BC. Thus, the 38 years of Jesus' life and 1007 BC be 1000 years before Jesus' birth. 390 + 40 = 430. In he 430th Sothis year, 2307 BC, Jacob and his sons came down to Egypt to sojourn.

Thus there is a pattern of 400 years in the Bible.

Genesis 11:13 "And Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters."

Genesis 11:15 And Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters."

Genesis 11:17 "And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters."

Adding these 6 generations from Noah's flood: 3307 BC one year flood to 3306 BC, 2 years to Arphaxad 35, Salah 30, Eber 34, Peleg 30, Rue 32, Serug 30, = 195 years. Abraham born 2607 BC when Terah 70, Terah born 2677 BC, Nahor 29 = 2707 BC. + 403 years = 3110 BC + this 195 Arphaxad to Serug = 3306 BC.

Thus, with this 403 year gap there is no missing years from Noah to Abraham.

The 430 years could be an Egyptian sothis date = 2767 BC. That is the full sothis cycle 1460 years = 2737 BC, and 1430 years = 2767 BC. The third generation, Eber, 35 + 30 + 34 = 99 years. 3304 BC - 99 years = 3205 BC is 438 years to this 1,430th year in 2767 BC. Jacob entered Egypt in the 430th year, 2307 BC. The 430th year of Eber may have foretold Israel entering Egypt in the Egyptian Sothis year 430. The 400th year would equal 2797 BC and be 1000 years since the beginning of the Egyptian Sothis cycle in 4197 BC.

3307 BC flood to 3306 BC, Arphaxad born two years after = 3304 BC, lived 35 years to 3269 BC = 3300 years to Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD.

Perhaps the 430 years were fulfilled with Jacob entering Egypt in the Egyptian Sothis year 430, 2307 BC, 2300 years before the birth of Christ in 7 BC.

There are some traces of solar activity in these early years. Physical evidence of sun movement is hard to find. The traces of solar cycles most likely are not related to sun movements. Nevertheless, here is a sample of the results of solar research:

From the Sun in Time:

There is a 2300 year solar cycle.

There was a cold period on earth due to the sun between 3200 BC and 2800 BC.

There was a climatic optimum prior to 4000 BP. BP = before present = 1950 AD = 2000 BC.

There was a cold period from 750 BC to 400 BC.
The Sun in Time, Atmospheric C Variation Spectrum.

Thus, 2300 + 2300 years ago = 2600 BC = the year of the sun miracle, 2607 BC at Abraham's birth.

There were several sun miracles from 2315 BC to 2000 BC recorded in the Chinese Classics.

Noah's flood, and the sun rising in the west and setting in the east by Jewish tradition, in year 600 Armenian Sothis must occur 3307 BC.

There were three kings before Zedekiah with similar sounding names that seem to be incorrectly recorded in the Bible. Jehoiachin was taken in his eighth year of his life, not the eighth year of his reign and from 615 BC. Thus we see in his fifth year of captivity was 611 BC the 30th year counting towards the 50th jubile year in 591 BC.

- Then, September 7, 591 BC must be the captivity of Jerusalem, in the fifth month, seventh day, of the fiftieth jubile year.

Daniel 9:2 "In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.

Thus the month of the jubile - the end of the 50th year at Yom Kippur, was November 8, 591 BC, just two months after the captivity. Then the next jubile would start in the beginning of the 50th year, September 472 BC. Then the jubile, 50th year, would be from September 22 BC = the next jubile on August/September 29 AD because there is no year 0. Thus September 29 AD - September 30 AD should be the year of the Jubile. September 23 BC should begin the 49th year. 49 year cycles counted from year 49, 1242 BC come to Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD. Josephus gave the fallow year 49 from September 23 BC to September 22 BC. Then the jubile, the fiftieth year, from September 22 BC to September 21 BC. Thus Jesus spoke from Isaiah 61 August/September 29 AD to begin the jubile.

The Koreans have a festival Chu Suk meaning big center from a book written in 32 AD by Kim Bu Sik. It is a festival of the night that lasts three days that falls about this August 15. The last quarter moon would be rising in China after sunset on Israel. This is a festival of the moon at night and this would be midnight in China. The moon would look blood red from China. The Chinese counted the days after the solstices and before the equinoxes. Also, August 15 cannot be mistaken because it is about the center of the Chinese year.

We use the same Gregorian calendar from 1 AD on. So the Chinese matched their calendar with ours. The date is exact. Perhaps there was a sun miracle, not August 16, 32 AD, but in 29 AD on the 13th Chinese lunar day = September 9, 29 AD day, not the 15th day, as recorded by this Kim Bu Sik. The Chinese lunar day is counted from when the moon passes by the sun. The Hebrew lunar day is counted from the moon's first visibility two days later. The 10th lunar day of the seventh Hebrew month would be Friday, September 9, 29 AD. This Friday, September 9 would be Yom Kippur when Jesus would speak from Isaiah 61 on the 50th year jubile. There could be both a long night, then a long day, followed by a bright short day. Thus in Isaiah 9 light is sprung up.

Isaiah 9:2 "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined."

Matthew 4:16 "The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up."

In this 29 AD in China it was recorded "A guest star trespassed against YUZUO extremely closely." YUZUO is the royal constellation. This may indicate a sun miracle in September.
East Asian Archaeology, p.130.

The battle of Gideon also recorded in Isaiah 9, speaks of a great light. The sun suddenly rising in the east passing 180° west, must be brilliant to leave the same daily coral layer. Most coral require large amounts of light for successful growth. This includes damaging ultraviolet light. If the amount of sunlight is increased for the same daily coral layer during a short day, the type of light should be altered as well.

The sun must rise suddenly in the east, Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC, because the next day is described as the second day = Monday. Thus, Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC is a type of the resurrection Sunday. Also, Gideon would see the sun stand still for 24 hours at noon, that Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC for Joshua's long day. Also, a great light.

Thus the sun traveling around the earth twice as fast as when it stood still in the sky would be more efficiant in producing a 12 hour day. That is, the sun is passing overhead. It should not matter which way. The sun has to stand still in the sky for a net total of 48 hours. However, if the sun travels east fast enough, the result is a normal 12 hour day, howbeit, the sun set in the east. Then, there is about 36 hours where the sun may stand still on the other side of earth opposite Israel for a long night. Then the sun may rise in the west, be stopped at noon for 24 hours, continue east to set, and a further three hours, then the sun travel 180° west. The total reverse orbit starting with the fall of Jericho: -12 hours, + 36 hours night before Joshua's long day, + 24 hours, - 12 hours, + 12 hours = 48 hours.

Did Herod die in 4 BC?

The first year of Herod in Jerusalem:

"But as to the more bold and hardy men, they got together in bodies, and fell a robbing others after various manners, and these particularly plundered the places that were about the city, and this because there was no food left either for the horses or the men;"
Wars of the Jews, Ch 18 p. 449 The Complete Works of Josephus.

This was when Herod took Jerusalem. This was a fallow year so thus the lack of bread. So 7 years back from 23 BC is 30 BC, 7 years back from 30 BC is 37 BC. So this must be 37 BC when the ground was not to be sowed, thus the shortage of food later that year. Thus the 13th year counting from 36 BC may be 23 BC. A shortage of bread would bring this calamity:

Josephus "1. NOW on this very year, which was the thirteenth year of the reign of Herod, very great calamities came upon the country;"

These two fallow years must be the 49th and 50th years. From Herod's reign in Jerusalem from 35 BC, his 13th year be this year 49 = 23 BC and jubile year 50 = 22 BC. This from year one Joshua's conquest in 1241 BC, the fiftieth year was the year of the 70 year captivity in 591 BC, then 521 BC was year one, to 22 BC jubile to 29 AD jubile. Thus Herod's first year at the conquest of Jerusalem in 37 BC was a Sabbath fallow year and shortage of bread. This 23 BC was year 49, 14 years before a fallow year in 37 BC. There are two jubile cycles. One a 49 year cycle from 1241 BC and the other a 50 year cycle from 1241 BC of which is subtracted the 70 years of captivity from year 50 in 591 BC to begin again in 521 BC, 550 years, to Jesus' first year of ministry in September 9, 29, AD = the jubile.

"1. AND now Herod, in the eighteenth year of his reign, and after the acts already mentioned, undertook a very great work, that is, to build of himself the temple of God,"

The 18th year from 35 BC is 18 BC which is cycle year Sabbath year 49 from the year of Joshua's conquest, 1241 BC. So counting from 35 BC 18 years to the 49 year cycle is 18 BC. From the resuming of the building of the Temple in Darius' second year = 7 BC 490 years later is this 18 BC. Likewise, the year of Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD was year 49 from 1241 BC. Thus the year of Jesus' resurrection was a jublile year. The blood red moon just after the High Priest was slain must have been the reflection of a red dimmed sun during the sun miracle that night at the same time as the lunar eclipse September 15, 5 BC. Similarly the sun was dimmed on Joshua's long day:Joshua 10:12 Sun stand still. That night the sun must have moved back 180° and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun.

The monk who determined Jesus was born year 1 AD, may have found the year of Jesus' crucifixion to be 33 AD.

Luke 3:23 "And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age"

Then Jesus three and a half years ministry means Jesus would be 30 in 30 AD when he began his ministry. However, the word for 30 may mean the 30th decade = 35 years old. And certainly Herod died at the end of March in 4 BC. And this was the same Herod that the wise men came to. And Herod enquired when the star appeared two years previous. The year of tax of Augustus in the month he named August and in the same year.

"Augustus was not a man to be daunted by death and bereavement, and the business of government did not pause. A census was held and the Senate list revised, once again ... In 7 BC, Augustus' powers were renewed, this time for ten years,"
The life of Rome's First Emperor, Augustus, p.278.

"The plebiscite Lex Pacuvia de mense augusto renamed Sextilis Augustus (August) in 8 BC."
Wikipedia

Thus Jesus must have been born September 12, 7 BC.

If Jesus was crucified in April 7, 30 AD: Then counting from the 18th of Herod from 38 BC is 21 BC and 46 years later is 26 AD in Jesus' first year of ministry when he would be 31. Then Herod would have died in 4 BC, Jesus born in 7 BC and Jesus crucified April 7, 30 AD at 35 years of age. However, the cycles of 50 and 49 years from the beginning in Joshua's day do not then agree. Also the 15th year of Caesar that began John and Jesus' ministry must have been 29 AD because Caesar died August 19, 14 AD.

Luke 3:1 "Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene,
3:2 Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness."

Tiberius was Roman Emperor from 14 AD to 37 AD. The fifteenth year would be in 29 AD. John's ministry began at the Passover in the spring of 29 AD when Jesus was baptized. Thus Jesus began his ministry six months later August/September, 29 AD.

Herod's reign was counted from 37 BC, 34 years to 4 BC by Josephus. Possibly at times his reign is counted from 35 BC. His death could be March 30, 4 BC. His first year was supposed to be 40 BC - 36 BC the 185 Olympiad. From 37 BC he actually reigned from Jerusalem. His son Philip reigned 37 years from 4 BC to 34 AD. Herod would hardly let his sons reign when he was still alive. Nevertheless, Jesus still appears to be born about Sunday, September 12, 7 BC, and crucified Friday, April 3, 33 AD. Also, there are many examples in scripture of Hebrew Kings living or reigning 38 years, the span of Jesus' life from September 12, 7 BC to April 3, 33 AD.

Luke 2:21 "And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
2:22 And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord;
2:23 (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;)
2:24 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.
2:25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.
2:26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.
2:27 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,
2:28 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,
2:29 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:
2:30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
2:31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
2:32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel."

Simeon mentioned Jesus is a light to lighten the Gentiles. There may have been a sudden brilliant sunrise when Jesus was born. Then the sun would be on the other side of the earth. Then if Simeon knew that Arcturus that now appeared directly above at midnight in September was the star of the King of the Jews, he would know 8 + 33 days later, 40 days later, that Jesus would be brought into the temple and be ready to greet him.

Jesus must be born September 13, 7 BC. Then on the eighth day he was circumcised September 20, BC = the autumn equinox.

In Hebrew the seven days were numbered, one to seven. Nevertheless, the first day logically begins with the first sunlight.

Leviticus 12:3 "And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.
12:4 And she shall then continue in the blood of her purifying three and thirty days; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be fulfilled."

Hebrews 1:3 "Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and manifesting all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;"

Matthew 2:2 "Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him."

Zechariah 14:16 "And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles."

In March Arcturus would appear in the west at sunset. Then by June Arcturus would appear directly above at sunset. By August Arcturus would appear in the east at sunset. Thus the wise men saw the star in the east and travelling east each night while earth was in the reverse orbit.

The following record in China depicts the astronomers using a jade sighting tube aimed straight up at the star appearing at sunset in the meridian of the night sky. Thus the wisemen who came to worship Jesus may have also had such a tool to measure where Arcturus passed over Bethlehem at midnight. Also by the 2nd century BC China had broadened its trade to the Middle East. A long journey begins with just one step.

8,000 Terracotta Warriors statues, found at the Tomb of the First Emperor, may have been inspired by Greeks. Qin Shi Huang lived between 259-210BC and became the first emperor of a unified China.

Chinese Emperor Yao's first year began in spring when the sun stood still for 10 days. Yao employed Yi to shoot at the sun 9 times, saving one sun, whereupon the sun moved again. They made Yao emperor.

Thereupon Yao determined to know the four seasons.

Yao commanded the second brother He to reside at Yu-e, in what was called the bright valley, and there respectfully to receive as a guest the rising sun, and to adjust and arrange the labours of spring.

"The day," he said "is of the medium length, and the star is Neaou; you may thus exactly determine midspring. He further commanded the third brother He to reside at Nan-keaou, and arrange the transformations of summer, and respectfully to observe the extreme limit of the shadow.

"The day," said he, "is at its longest, and the star is Ho; You may thus exactly determine midsummer.

He separately commanded the second brother Ho to reside at the west, in what was called the Dark Valley, and there respectfully to convoy the setting sun, and to adjust and arrange the completing labours of autumn. "The night," he said, "is of the medium length, and the star is Heu; you may thus exactly determine mid-autumn. The people begin to feel at ease; and birds and beasts have their coats in good condition."

April 1 was Pharaoh's birthday 107 days back from July 16. That is, in Sothis year 430, 430 / 4 = 107 days = the year and day, new years, Jacob and sons entered Egypt. New years backed up from July 16, 2737 BC 430 years to Friday, April 1, 2307 BC. 430 / 4 = 107 days = the day Jacob and his family entered Egypt.

The sojourn of Jacob into Egypt to be Friday, must count 14 days from the last visibility of the moon. Thus, Friday, April 1, 2307 BC be the 14th day of the Egyptian lunar month. Thus, Friday March 30, 1281 BC be the 14th day of the Hebrew month, the full moon and the Exodus.

Then the "selfsame day" must mean Friday, must mean the 14th day both times. Only the full moon was Sunday, April 3, 2307 BC. The 430th year of new years backed up the calendar 430 / 4 = 107 days from July 16 = April 1, 2307 BC. This same 107 days back from July 17, in 1281 BC was again April 1. Thus in all, Friday, April 1, 2307 BC = Friday, March 30, 1281 BC.

Picture a globe of earth. If you rotate the base 180° for a sun movement of 180° at winter or summer solstice to keep earth in the same season; you will see half of 26000 years of precession. Thus a date of 90 days from the autumn or vernal equinox produces 180° shift to keep earth in the same season. Therefore, 2 X the number of days from the equinoxes is the number of degrees to shift earth or sun. Thus April 1, 2300 BC was 10 days before the vernal equinox April 11, 2300 BC. 26000 / 360°: = 72 years. 10 days = 10° x 72 years X 2 = 1400 years more recent than 2300 BC = 1000 BC sky instead of a 2300 BC sky.

"But apart from this, we are prepared to affirm that the three of the men sent to the four borders of China could not have seen the stars culminating at nightfall, when the sun is in the first point of Cancer, for it must culminate at 6h. P.M., whereas the sun would not set in any part of China in midsummer much before 7h P.M., and the stars would not be visible for half an hour after sunset. This fact would stand equally in the way, at the equinoxes, of the observers' seeing their stars culminating, unless indeed, the time of observation was several centuries later than the date usually assigned to Yaouh (B.C. 2356 - 2355), so that the stars to be observed had ceased to be exactly in the solstitial colure. The astronomer who went to the north in winter is the only one who would have no difficulty of this kind."
The Chinese Classics, The Astronomy of the Ancient Chinese, p.92.

Yao's first year should be 2315 BC

Einstein used the precession of Mercury to validate his theory of Relativity. Newton's law that light has mass predicts objects passing a massive object like the sun will be bent around the sun. The bending is only a few meters. However, the gravity of the sun slows the light photons considerably creating a lensing around the sun. Einstein's theory of relativity predicts the photons will be bent two times more than Newton's law. Thus if James Legge used Newton's laws to predict the precession of the equinoxes he would be out by half. Probably the precession of earth that takes 26000 years to complete was known by James Legge in 1860. Nevertheless, the stars named by Yao would not mark the four seasons till quite a bit more than the 700 years James Legge suggested.

April 1, 2315 BC was 10 days before the spring equinox in April 10, 2315 BC. 2 X 10 days = 20°. Thus, the four stars of Yao would mark the four seasons 1400 years more recent than in 2315 BC. Thus, this record of Yao cannot be explained away because there is a huge 1400 year descrepancy.

Nevertheless, April 1, 2315 BC was the full moon. The start of the second year of famine should be 8 years later, 7 years plus one year of famine. Thus, April 1, 2315 BC should start the seven years of plenty.

Thus it would be entirely impossible for the Chinese astronomers to name these four stars to mark the four seasons in 2300 BC unless the sun moved.

The famine stele, inscribed in 332 BC for Pharaoh Djosor, describes seven years of famine. This may be the famine of Abraham.

Genesis 12:10 "And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land."

Abraham left Ur in 2532 BC. Thus if the Egyptian chronology at the time of Djosor was 100 more years more recent, Unas must be at least 50 years more recent, this famine may have been recorded in Genesis 12:10

Relief showing starving nomads from Unas' causeway at Saqqara.

The low Nile rather of Pharaoh Unas was in 2308 BC. Then the second year of famine = the 430th Egyptian sothis year 2307 BC. Joseph was made governor over Egypt eight years earlier in 2315 BC.

Thus, James Legge, who wrote the Chinese Classics in 1860, knew immediately these stars of He and Ho could not tell the seasons in 2300 BC. Then Jacob came down into Egypt in the second year of famine, the 9th year = 7 years plenty - 1 year of famine to start the second year of famine, 2315 BC - 8 = 2307 BC.

Then as the precession of Mercury was solved by Einstein's equation, so also, the forward precession of earth recorded in the time of Yao is also solved by these sun movements.

The first year of Emperor Yao in the Chinese Classics was to be 150 years before Yu in 2168 BC = 2318 BC. Yao reigned 100 years to Shun. With 3 years of overlap with Shun, Yao's first year should be 2315 BC. Yao became emperor when the sun stood still for nine days in spring. To match with Genesis pharaoh's birthday when Joseph appeared before pharaoh was April 1. Thus the sun should stand still for nine days April 1, 2315 BC.

Ice cores from mount Kilimanjaro contained a dust layer from 2300 BC which matched the low Nile in the reign of Pharaoh Unas. = the seven years of famine in Egypt described in Genesis. If there be a full Sothis cycle of 1460 years at the end of the Egyptian Sothis cycle from 2741 BC to 1281 BC we are short 5 years. However, it is widely believed this sothis cycle ended one day earlier July 17, 1281 BC because Sirius appeared before the sun 4:15 AM one day earlier.

At Qumran, in the Dead Sea Scrolls, is their 364 day calendar to match the 52 weeks of 7 days, and the lunar year calendar. The new year would always be on Wednesday, the fourth day, the day the sun was created. Both the weekly 364 day calendar and the monthly 29.5 day = 354 day, calendar began on the same day every 23 years.

Thus, from Jacob entering Egypt in 2307 BC is 100 X 23 years = 2300 years to Jesus' birth. 3 X 23 = 69. Jacob was born when Isaac was 69 in 2438 BC. Isaac in 2468 BC, when Isaac was 39 = the age of Jesus when he was crucified = the age of Isaac when Abraham went to offer up Isaac. 2468 BC - (7 X 23 years) 161 years = 2307 BC.

Here you see the weekly calendar of 364 days equals the monthly calendar of 354 days. The first day of the lunar month is one or two days after the new moon when is the moon's first visibility. Thus Monday March 2, 53 BC, then Monday March 17, 30 BC, then Monday March 2, 7 BC:













Half an orbit before the 17th day of the 7th month = Saturday, September 12, 7 BC, is the 10th day of the first month, Wednesday, March 11, 7 BC.

The first day of the 7th month, the civil new year, Wednesday, August 26, 7 BC.

The Priestly Courses: There were 24 priestly courses. The 24th was Maaziah = Caiaphas. 48 weeks + 4 = 52 courses.

"On the third day from the Sabbath (Tuesday) of the course of the sons of Maaziah is the Passover. The Passover 14th of the first month = third day from 1/12 to 1/18.
The Dead Sea Scrolls, Religious Thought and Practices Reflected in the Qumran Scrolls, p.170, by Flint.

Maaziah was the priestly division of Caiaphas, as revealed by a tomb near Bethshemesh recently. The passover week of Jesus' crucifixion, the third day of the week, Tuesday, March 31, 33 AD. The passover of Jesus' crucifixion Friday, April 3, 33 AD, the 14th day of the lunar month.

Thus, Caiaphas would be the High Priest that year, as he had been for 15 years, and also his priestly division, if this date is the same week, would serve the temple the passover week that Jesus was crucified.

2717 BC - 1281 BC = 1455 years. However, the completion of the revolution is in itself one year. A 1460 year sothis would be 1461 years. Thus, the sothis one day early = July 17, is 1456 year sothis.

Then Abraham's father Terah died in year 205. This must be sothis year 205 from 2737 BC = 2532 BC. Then Abraham born in 2607 BC would be 75 years old when his father died in 2532 BC. Abraham born in 2607 BC, Isaac be born in 2507 BC, Jacob born when Isaac was 69, not 60, the character 9 being omitted, in 2438 BC, and Jacob enter Egypt when he was 130 years old in 2307 BC.

2532 BC is 2525 years before Jesus' birth in 7 BC. 101 X 25 = 2525 or about 101 generations.

Adam born in Armenian sothis year 800 = 4568 BC died at 130 years old in 4538 BC = 1800 years to the new begin Egyptian sothis cycle 2737 BC.

Genesis 11:25 "And Nahor lived after he begat Terah an hundred and nineteen years, and begat sons and daughters."

From the Egyptian sothis 2737 BC 119 years later is 2618 BC. Then to Jesus' sacrifice April 3, 33 AD is 2650 years or 53 50 year jubiles.

Counting back from Jacob entering Egypt when he was 130 years old in 2307 BC to Joseph's birth in 2345 BC. Because Joseph was 30 years old in 2315 BC, born 2345 BC. Then counting 2 X 7 years, the years Jacob served for Rachel, 14 years, to Jacob's first born Rueben about 2360 BC. Jacob was born in 2438 BC, and Jacob would be 77 when he arrived to work for Laban. Thus Jacob would be about 38 when he took Esau's blessing, and 38 years later when Jacob started work for Laban. Thus these 38 year periods were a type of Jesus' perfect life, from September 12, 7 BC to April 3, 33 AD.

The dates work far better if Abraham left Haran when his father died, in Egyptian sothis year 205 from 2737 BC = 2532 BC.

Note "The emperor's son Che was deposed after being appointed nine years."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.

The king Che before Yao, reigned 10 years. All things being correct, counting Yao's first year after this 10 years can make Yao's first year in agreement.

The chronology does not work unless Jacob entered Egypt in 2307 BC = 2300 years before Jesus's birth. This 2307 BC must equal year 430 Egyptian Sothis from 2737 BC. A full sothis cycle from 2737 BC to 1281 BC of 1456 years. The first appearing of Sirius 4:15 AM before dawn, New Years was July 17 instead of July 16 in 1282 BC - one day equals this 4 years from 1460 years = 1456 years.

Thus, Isaac must have been 69 not 60 when Jacob was born. Thus, Abraham must have left Haran when his father Terah died, when Abraham was 75 years old and Terah died in Egyptian sothis year 205, from 2737 BC = 2532 BC. 2532 BC - 75 = 2607 BC = Abraham's birth 2600 years before Jesus' birth in 7 BC>

Abraham passed through Palestine in his 75th year in drought would come into Egypt when the three great pyramids of Giza were built. Khufu, dynasty IV, built the Great Pyramid. 2606 BC - 2583 BC. Should be 40 years more recent, 2566 BC - 2543 BC. Because pharaoh Unas must be 40 years more recent to be the pharaoh of the seven years of famine. Unas must have reigned about 20 years, not from 2367 BC, but from about 2327 BC to the second year of famine in 2307 BC. There is a stone drawing of starving foreigners coming to Pharaoh Unas for bread. This was a wide spread famine in the Mediterranean and matches the drought and fires described in the falling Sun of Phaethon.

Thus Abraham at 75 years old when he left Haran 2531 BC would have seen this pyramid just as it was completed. Thus the new copper cap stone would gleam in the sunlight.

"In Hwang-te's (Huangdi) 50th year (October 18, 2607 BC), in autumn, in the 7th month, on the day Kang-shin (57 of cycle 60), (17th day of the 7th month = Noah's ark rested, Genesis 8:4 = 2600 years before Jesus' birth September 12, 7 BC) phoenixes, male and female arrived." In Huangdi's 20th year, from the new moon at the beginning of the year, day one of cycle sixty, January 27, 2636 BC. The sun was in Aquarius in January 2636 BC. The first of the 12 zodiac constellations. The date the 17th lunar day of the 7th month may be a prophesy of Jesus born the 17th day of the 7th month, about September 13, 7 BC. Thus Abraham born 2300 years before Jesus to the day.

Genesis 16:16 "And Abram was fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bare Ishmael to Abram."

Abraham born in 2607 BC would be 86 years old in 2521 BC. That is 2550 years, 51 jubiles of 50 years, before Jesus was to begin his ministry at Yom Kippur, the 50 year jubile, Friday, September 9, 29 AD.

Genesis 16:3 "And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife."

Genesis 21:5 "And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him."

Genesis 18:14 "Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son."

The return of the year was in the new year, the seventh month = September / October. Jesus must have been born on the 17th day of the seventh month, September 12, 7 BC.

Thus, when Abraham was 86 years old would be 2521 BC. 2521 BC be 2550 years before the jubile of 29 AD when Jesus spoke from Isaiah 61 to begin his ministry. By legend Chinese emperor Huangdi lived 100 years to 2557 BC. Then in the next emperor's 38th year would be this 2521 BC, and perhaps a sun miracle and a change of emperors. Then there were 38 more years to 2482 BC, emperor Chuen-Heuh's first year. Then 13 more years to 2468 BC, when Chuen-Heuh changed the calendar perhaps when there was a sun miracle, when Abraham went to offer up Isaac as a type of Christ, 2500 years before Jesus' crucifixion in April 3, 33 AD. Thus all these 38 year periods point to Jesus' perfect life of 38 years from September 12, 7 BC to April 3, 33 AD.

"Every 20 years the new moon appeared at the winter solstice at dawn..projecting ahead 19 times, 380 years, when Huang-di became immortal and ascended into Heaven."
The Grand Scribes Records, Volume II, p.236

From Huangdi's first year, 2657 BC, 380 years = 2277 BC. Jesus life of 38 years times ten. From Yao's and Joseph's first year, 2315 BC to 2277 BC = 38 years. Jesus ascended April 5, 33 AD when he was 38 years old.

Or, from 2635 BC, 380 years = 2255 BC.

"In Yao's 61st year, he ordered the baron K'wan of Ts'ung to regulate the Ho river."

Yao's first year was 2315 BC and his 61st year was 2255 BC. A sun miracle then could affect the weather patterns and raise the level of the Ho river.

From Huangdi's first year in 2657 BC even 20 years to 17 BC was to the beginning Herod's rebuilding of the temple. 50 years later, April 3, 33 AD Jesus gave his life and rose again Sunday, April 5, 33 AD.

In Chuen-Heuh's 13th year he invented calendaric calculations probably because of a sun miracle in spring that year, on the 14th day = the Passover day. This date should be 2468 BC = 2500 years before Jesus was crucified in 33 AD. Isaac born in 2507 BC would be 39 years old. Jesus born in 7 BC would be almost 39 years old in 33 AD.

"A yellow dragon served as the omen for Chuen-heuh to become emperor" 13 years earlier, 2481 BC, 1200 years before the Exodus in 1281 BC.

This also was the pattern for emperor Wu's first year. Wu became emperor 12 years after his father Wan died. Thus Wu was king for 12 years before he became emperor. = 23rd year of cycle 60, 1174 BC.






See When was Jesus Born?

Jesus must have been crucified Friday, April 3, 33 AD

Luke 3:1 "Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene,
3:2 Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness."

The fifteenth year of Tiberius was in 29 AD because Augustus died August 19, 14 AD. Jesus was baptized of John in about March 29 AD. Jesus began his three and a half year ministry half a year later about his birthday in September 14, 29 AD to his crucifixion April 3, 33 AD.

John 2:20 "Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?"

Thus 46 years back from the Passover in 29 AD is 18 BC when the temple was rebuilt by Herod in his 18th year from 35 BC. The temple was continually being rebuilt to 70 AD.

Equation of Time

From Analemma.com:

AnalemmaCurve.gif

CombinedCharts.gif

In a half orbit of 186.6 days and 178.6 days: The difference in orbit speed is +8 minutes and -8 minutes. That adds up to 16 minutes in a 24 hour day. However, over 48 hours that adds up to 32 minutes. I believe the speed of earth is the factor. Because earth's reverse orbit is sped up 48 hours a year, earth's half orbit plus earth's next half orbit - a complete reverse orbit year - must add up to 48 hours less and still be 365 days and 5 hours. Because at the same speed and distance of earth's orbit in reverse there would be 367.24 days unless earth's reverse orbit is sped up two days, 48 hours, because rotation is against orbit in earth's reverse orbit. Then the first half orbit must be applied to 24 hours, half of the sped up 48 hours.

The Equation of Time and the Analemma point to the difference between the first half reverse orbit and the second half reverse orbit. Thus the difference of 32 minutes is not from the normal orbit, but from the sped up half of 48 hours spread over the reverse orbit.

The speed of earth must speed up 32 minutes in the second half reverse orbit when earth is nearest the sun. Thus the first half orbit is 23:28 hours shorter and the second half orbit 24:32 hours shorter. Two 180° movements east of the sun, to begin and end a half reverse orbit, add up to 24 hours. Thus the first half orbit is missing 32 minutes in elapsed time. However, if one half orbit is 188 days, as it is from the fall of Jericho to Joshua's long day, the second half orbit may be 177 days ending about one year later, February 15, 1240 BC - the sixth day of the Chinese month from February 1 when the moon passed the sun, the first day, as in king Wan's dream.

The missing time of the first half reverse orbit from 188/365.24 X the 48 hours = not 24 hours 40 minutes but 23 hours and 20 minutes. The faster half is the fall winter half. Earth is closest the sun January 3. In 1241 BC earth was closest the sun in November. The faster half orbit is in winter when earth is closest to the sun. The more sped up half orbit must be the winter half.

We are still missing 40 minutes just as in the Missing Day Story till the other half orbit is added.

The Fall of Jericho, Joshua and Gideon, Deborah and Barak and King Wan's Dream

Jericho may have fallen Saturday February 17, 1241 BC. The walls may have fallen as a result of an earthquake caused by the sun revolving around the earth for an early and sudden sunrise in the east when Joshua and Israel rose up early that seventh day. Then Joshua's long day 188 days later, - from which the 50 year jubile was counted - Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC, and king Wan's dream Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC. All the calculations work the same way. Then king Wan's first year could begin February 15, 1240 BC, at the sun miracle on the sixth day of the moon. It was written king Wan ruled over two thirds of China before his son Wu became emperor. The lunar eclipse on his 35th year probably was day 13 of 60, September 23, 1205 BC.

His battle with Emperor Wending in Wending's 12th year, 1240 BC, the first year of king Wan, that day in which he had victory and which he described the sun miracle in detail in what is known as king Wan's Dream. Thus the sun miracle and his appointment of Heaven. Then after 35 years, rather his 36th year, he stated that lunar eclipse was untimely. It was on day 13 of cycle 60. A lunar eclipse is normally on lunar day 15. Only day 13 was out of the 60 day cycle. Sun miracles and eclipses were omens to the Chinese for a change in emperor. Thus this lunar eclipse record on day 13 probably was September 23, 1205 BC. If the sun moved back February 15, 1240 BC, it must have moved to the other side of earth one year earlier, February 17, 1241 BC.

Barak and Deborah fought on the same day as Joshua at the battle of Merom, February 15, 1240 BC. Thus the sun stood still at noon that day also for Joshua to get the victory.

Joshua 6:15 "And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early about the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven times. "

Then we may have found the 40 minutes in the Missing Day Story. 11 PM August 23, 1241 BC may have been when Gideon attacked the Midianites at the beginning of the second watch that year, slew 120,000 men and travelled 60 miles before turning back in victory before sunrise. Not possible in the dark and not possible in just the few hours of the morning twilight.

However, Gideon may have had twilight. In Judges 8:13 Gideon returned before the sun ascended. The picture is the sun was not in the sky all those hours till the sun rose. Thus the dimness described in Isaiah 9. In August there are only five hours from the middle watch to sunrise at the 33rd parallel of Israel. People can walk only about 20 miles a 12 hour day. Thus with 36 hours of twilight = the sun standing still just below the western horizon, Gideon could travel this 60 miles before the sun rose in the west. This being the same time of Joshua's Long Day, the sun must pass west to east. Then at Joshua's request, the sun stand still at noon for 24 hours, then proceed to set in the west that Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC. Then Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC the sun suddenly and brilliantly rise in the west.

Joshua 10:32 "And the LORD delivered Lachish into the hand of Israel, which took it on the second day,"

The first day of the week is Sunday. Joshua's Long Day being Saturday. The second day of the week is Monday = Joshua taking Lachish.

Yet there should be darkness when Gideon fought his battle. This darkness is spoken of in Isaiah 9. This darkness would match the darkness of the Friday night Jesus was in the grave. Gideon returned before the sun ascended. If the same time of Joshua's long day, the sun may ascend in the west after a long night. A long night of about 36 hours would be enough time for Gideon to chase the Midianites 60 miles.

The sun rising in the west and setting in the east in 12 hours would equal a normal day of 12 hours. Thus, the sun may travel 540° east, but the necessary effect of 48 longer hours to counter two fewer days in a years worth of a reverse orbit of the sun, may need even more longer hours. Then a long night before Joshua's long day may be needed to give enough hours, a net total of 48 hours of long days.

Joshua 10:26 "And afterward Joshua smote them, and slew them, and hanged them on five trees: and they were hanging upon the trees until the evening.

The word for "gowing down" H935bow in Joshua 10:27, is different than the word for sunset H3996mabow in Joshua 1:4.

Joshua 1:4b "and untoH5704 the greatH1419 seaH3220 toward the going downH3996 of the sun,H8121 shall beH1961 your coast.H1366"

Joshua 10:27a "And it came to passH1961 at the timeH6256 of the going downH935 of the sun,H8121 that JoshuaH3091 commanded,H6680 and they took them downH3381 off the trees,H4480 H5921 H6086 and castH7993 them intoH413 the caveH4631"

10:27 And it came to pass at the time of the going down of the sun, that Joshua commanded, and they took them down off the trees, and cast them into the cave wherein they had been hid, and laid great stones in the cave's mouth, which remain until this very day."

Thus, the sun at the end of Joshua's long day may have set in the east instead of the west.

Thus the long day of Joshua was a type of the burial of Jesus, when a stone was rolled to the cave entrance. That day, Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC, = the Saturday, April 4, 33 AD, the sun may have rose in the west and set in the east. The word for "bow" down can also mean a voluntary act. Thus, rather than being a typical sunset, the sun moved down.

Psalm 18:9 "He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet."

Thus the sun and moon and planets were moved down, around the earth. And being moved down were not moved west but east.

John 19:30 "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost."

Such as Jesus bowed his head and died.

There being darkness, so there being evening. After about three hours, the sun would suddenly and brilliantly rise in the east that resurrection Sunday morning, April 5, 33 AD. Then the sun may also suddenly and brilliantly rise in the morning about three hours after the sun set in the east, Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC.

John 9:4 "I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work."

Isaiah 21:11 "The burden of Dumah. He calleth to me out of Seir, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?
21:12 The watchman said, The morning cometh, and also the night: if ye will enquire, enquire ye: return, come."

The Sunday of Jesus' resurrection April 5, 33 AD, may have been a short day. Because the sun should suddenly rise in the east to the noon position. The daylight of that day may have been not much more than six hours.

Matthew 28:2 "And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it."

There may also have been an earthquake at Jesus' resurrection because the sun had suddenly moved. The sun travelling east at 30 million miles per hour, suddenly stopping at Israel's 3 AM position, then bouncing back at 20 million miles per hour travelling west 180°. The gravitational tidal pull of the sun and moon should produce an earthquake on earth.

Sun Rose in the West

Joshua 10:9 "And Joshua came to them suddenly, all the night had he gone up from Gilgal."

Joshua 9:16 "And it came to pass at the end of three days after they had made a league with them, that they heard that they were their neighbours, and that they dwelt among them.
9:17 And the children of Israel journeyed, and came unto their cities on the third day. Now their cities were Gibeon, and Chephirah, and Beeroth, and Kirjathjearim."

The night ended at the second watch, 11 PM when the sun rose in the west on Gideon. An army can climb from Gilgal to Gibeon in the four hours to the sunrise in the west. However, under normal travel the path may take more than one day. The sun appeared to be headed to set in the east. Then Joshua asked God to stop the sun. The sun was already travelling fast around the earth. Joshua asked God to slow his movement of the sun so it would stop in the middle of the sky. Therefore the debate about how to slow a stopped sun is answered here. The sun should be as bright as normal when Joshua asked God to Damam - stop, dim, the sun. The sun standing still in the sky should be dimmed to leave the same daily coral layer. The first quarter moon would normally rise over the mountains in the east August 24, 1241 BC just before 1 PM.

However, the day retreating to the dawn may be the day and lunar day retreating from the August 23 moon to the August 24 moon = the same day as Joshua's long day. Thus the sun rising in the west to the 12 PM position, noon position, and the first quarter moon just above the eastern horizon.

Then the sun "hasted not to go down a whole day" because the sun was moving west east and with the moon visible and setting in the west, the sun could not pass from the noon position till the 24 hour day had passed. Thus the sun was moving with earth's rotation and did not haste to set, that is, did not move faster to set in the east. Thus the sun would be in the middle of the sky in the 12 PM position when the moon stayed in the valley of Ajalon in the east for 24 hours.

The word for "in" the valley of Ajalon is the letter Bet. Bet means "from" or "house". Thus, the moon would have passed west to east "from" Ajalon in the west. It is hard to spot the six day moon rise in the eastern horizon at noon. Thus, the moon visible rising in the west to proceeding to set in the east, whereupon Joshua in the sight of all Israel asked God to make the noon day sun stand still and the six day moon stand still. Then the sun "hasted not to go down a whole day" because the sun was moving west east and with the moon visible and setting in the west, the sun could not pass from the noon position till the 24 hour day had passed.

Ajloun is a town in Jordan, 30 miles North East of Gibeon. If the moon rose in the west ahead of the sun, the noon sun over Gibeon. Then, the six day moon should be setting in the east or near Ajloun Jordan.

Ajloun Jordan is where Gideon fought the Midianites on the same day as Joshua's long day.

The sun moving west to east and now at the noon position when Joshua asked God to make the sun stand still over Gibeon for 24 hours. Then, the sun would proceed to travel east, meaning the sun would be in the eyes of the Amorites. Thus the Amorites would all the more flee because when they faced Israel the sun was in their eyes.

The night after the sun had set in the east would have given the Amorites time to escape and regroup. Even the sudden dawn in the east would only give light for about 6 hours that next day.

The Amorites worshipped Baal, the Sun. Thus when Joshua in the audience of the Hebrews and fighting Amorites asked God to stop the sun in the sky and the sun did stop in the sky, the Amorites would be terrified and fear the God of Heaven. Not far from Ajalon is Bethshemesh meaning House of the Sun. Thus the Amorites were Sun worshipers. The Egyptians worshiped the Sun, Ra. Pharaoh Ramses was named after the sun. They too would be terrified when the sun did not rise for three days in the ninth plague of Exodus.

Hebrews 2:10 "For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings."

Joshua 5:13 "And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?
5:14 And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant?
5:15 And the captain of the LORD'S host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so"

John 1:27 "He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose."

Thus, this captain could be Jesus, for Joshua worshipped him. Then, this captain would be at the front of battle at Gibeon and hear when Joshua asked God to make the sun, and moon, stand still in the sky. And could intercede for Joshua to God.

Joshua 10:13 "And the sunH8121 stood still,H1826 and the moonH3394 stayed,H5975 untilH5704 the peopleH1471 had avengedH5358 themselves upon their enemies.H341 Is notH3808 thisH1931 writtenH3789 inH5921 the bookH5612 of Jasher?H3477 So the sunH8121 stoodH5975 still in the midstH2677 of heaven,H8064 and hastedH213 notH3808 to go downH935 about a wholeH8549 day.H3117"

The word stood still = H8126 is damam meaning to dim or slow. The word stayed = H5975 is amad means to stand or stop. The word hasted = H213 is oots and means to hurry or withdraw. A "whole" day = H8549 is tamiym and means entire. All three appear to describe the sun rising in the west and while passing to the east Joshua asked God to slow the sun's movement east at noon to make it stand still in the sky for a complete, entire, day of 24 hours.

The word for the moon stayed "in" Ajalon is the letter "Bet". "Bet" means "from". The charater is the shape of a single room house. Thus the word means house. Thus anything leaving the house is "from". Thus the moon rising from the west, from Ajalon, ahead of the sun. At midnight the six day moon would be setting in the west. Then the six day moon rise in the west, "from" "Bet" over Ajalon, with the sun 90° behind. Thus Joshua could have seen the moon all that night and day, and by noon Joshua would see it nearly set in the east.

The six day moon rising in the east is hard to spot in the noon day sun. Thus Joshua would see the moon rise and the sun rise travelling east. Thus Joshua could point both to the sun and the moon when he asked God to make them "dim" that is slow down from their westward movement. The sun would be travelling 40 million miles per hour east, and thus slow to 20 million miles per hour to stand still in the sky.

The sun would stand still at noon both for Joshua as he chased the Amorites westward down Bethoron, and for Gideon as he chased the Midianites eastward down mount Tabor. The sun setting in the east. Thus the people would be looking east for the sun to rise. Then a few hours later, the sun would suddenly and brilliantly rise in the east, Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC. This sudden sunrise would be a type of Jesus' resurrection Sunday. Thus the resurrection Sunday at the end of life's day.

Ephesians 5:14 "Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light."

The second watch at which Gideon attacked would begin just before midnight in August. The sun would suddenly rise in the east or west, probably in the west, about 11 PM at the beginning of the second watch. It is very unusual to fight a battle at night. There must have been more than moonlight. Thus the sun must have risen in the west shortly after the beginning of the second watch. Thus Gideon could chase the Midianites in the day light.

"139 BC June 11 China. "Emperor Wu of Han, 2nd year of the Jianyuan reign period, summer, 4th month, day wushen [45]. There was a bright light as if the sun appeared at night."
East Asian Archaeology, p.89.

A meteor fire ball can brighten the sky like the sun, like last night December 5, 2016, in Siberia. However, some records state the sun came out at night.

"While Bhagavan Aditya [the sun] illumines the god's mountain, continuously going around, he heats only half the land up to Lokaloka Mountain, and he covers half [with darkness]. Not approving of this, Priyavrata, having accumulated super human power the worship of the Lord, [thought] 'I shall make night into day'. With a chariot built of light of the same speed, he went seven times around following the movement of the sun like a second sun."
Bhagavatam verse 5.1.30, Mysteries of the Sacred Universe, p.58

The moon must stay at its same apparent distance from the sun. So the sun may appear seven times brighter, and the moon as bright as the sun. The sun travelling with earth's rotation or moving ahead of earth's rotation, would have the moon following also.

In 85 BC: "In the consulship of Lucius Valerius and Gaius Matius a burning shield scattering sparks ran across the sky at sunset from west to east."
Pliny: Natural History Book II, Chapter XXXIV

In 133 BC: "Under the consulate of Africanus and Fabius, the sun was seen shining at midnight."
This has been suggested it was a comet that year. Nevertheless, the record states it was the sun.

Possibly the sun rose in the west just after sunset. Thus what they saw was not a second sun, but the sun moving 180°. This could also describe the sun standing still for 7 X 12 hours, revolving around the earth 7 X 180° with earth's rotation such as at the:

Matthew 28:1 In the end(G3796) of the Sabbath,G4521 as it began to dawnG2020 towardG1519 the firstG3391 day of the week,G4521 cameG2064 MaryG3137 MagdaleneG3094 andG2532 theG3588 otherG243 MaryG3137 to seeG2334 theG3588 sepulchre.G5028,

A Sabbath of seven Sabbaths the night Jesus was crucified. Seven Sabbaths were counted from the Sabbath of the Passover 50 days to Pentecost. Nevertheless, Yao's long day where the sun stood still on China for 9 X 12 hour days Saturday, March 31; Whereupon Joseph was made governor over all of Egypt. New years, April 1, 2315 BC was the full moon. The second year of famine would begin eight years later in 2307 BC. Thus the sun standing still in China and not rising in Israel for 7 X 12 = 84 hours = the Sabbaton. March 15, 1281 BC was the new moon. Thus with the sun and moon together on the other side of earth, Egypt could be kept in total darkness.

John 19:31 "The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away."

Nevertheless, April 1, 2315 BC was eight years before the sojourn of Jacob into Egypt in 2307 BC. Thus Yao's long day of nine days should have been on the full moon of April 1, 2315 BC.

The 9 suns of Yao, the sun stood still in the sky for 9 days, or 9 X 12 hours, could also have occurred April 1, 2315 BC. Then half an orbit later October 2, 2315 BC the sun may move back, and forward again. Earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun, then back into a reverse orbit of the sun. October 2, 2315 BC was the 17th day of the 7th Hebrew month. Thus there could have been a sun miracle on the same 17th day of the 7th Hebrew month in 2315 BC, as September 13, 7 BC, as when Jesus may have been born.

Ecclessiastes 11:8 "But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity."

Isaiah 8:22 "And they shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble and darkness, dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness."

Isaiah 9:2 "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined."

Isaiah 58:10 "And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:"

Isaiah 60:2 "For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee."

John 12:35 "Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth."

Joel 2:1 "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
2:2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations."

Joel 2:10 "The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:"

Joe 2:30 "And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come."

These verses may describe the darkness at noon when Jesus was on the cross; the full moon reflecting a blood red sun; the sun rising in the west and setting in the east to the morning position; the sun then suddenly rising in the east with Jesus' resurrection.

And also when the sun stood still for about 10 X 12 hour days in China in emperor Kin's eighth year about 1731 BC. These Bible verses could also describe the sun revolving 7 X 180° east, leaving a long night in Israel, long day in China, from sunset Friday, April 3, 33 AD to the sun rising in the west and setting in the east April 4, 33 AD. Then the sun may have risen suddenly in the east the resurrection Sunday after only a few hours of dark after the sun had set in the east.

Job 17:12 "They change the night into day: the light is short because of darkness.
17:13 If I wait, the grave is mine house: I have made my bed in the darkness."

The resurrection morning may have seen the sun rise in the west and set in the east Saturday, April 4, 33 AD - then after a few hours of darkness, the sun suddenly and brilliantly rise in the east and pass west ward for a short Sunday, April 5, 33 AD.

After the sun had set in the east the Saturday Jesus was in the grave, a few hours after dark, after Jesus rose from the dead, the sun would suddenly rise in the east. Thus the night would be short and the Sunday resurrection day be short.

The full moon would then rise in the west 180° from the sun, and rise about 45° or about three hours equaling the sun's set in the east for three hours. The moon at the 45° point in the western sky would suddenly become as bright as the sun, reflecting the light of the sun being seven times brighter, and would suddenly set in the west. The sun would suddenly become seven times brighter and rise in the east.

Job 9:7 "Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars."

Job 30:26 "When I looked for good, then evil came unto me: and when I waited for light, there came darkness.
30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.
30:28 I went mourning without the sun: I stood up, and I cried in the congregation."

Thus the Friday night after Jesus was crucified may have lasted many hours longer and the sun may not have risen that day just as this day Job describes. The Chinese record days when it was dark and clear yet no stars or no Milky Way appeared - this in days when there was no light pollution. The Chinese have traditions of long days and long nights.

Psalm 74:15 "Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood: thou driedst up mighty rivers.
74:16 The day is thine, the night is thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
74:17 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter."

Job 38:12 "Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;
38:13 That it might take hold of the ends (wings) of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
38:14 It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment."

Job 38:18 "Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.
38:19 Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,
38:20 That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?"

Job 12:22 "He discovereth deep things out of darkness, and bringeth out to light the shadow of death."

Job 17:12 "They change the night into day: the light is short because of darkness."

Zechariah spoke of the dayspring when asked to name John the Baptist. Jesus rose from the dead Sunday, April 5, 33 AD when the sun suddenly and brilliantly rose in the east. "turned as clay to the seal" can be turned backwards or forwards. The seal may be the stars of the zodiac. "wings of the earth" because the earth orbits the sun. Thus earth can orbit backwards or forwards around the sun.

The ancient people of the Bible knew earth had wings and revolved around the sun. Joshua knew God was moving the sun from west to east the day he asked God to stop the sun moving across the sky from west to east. Thus the day may begin with the sun rising in the west or the east. Thus the sun may have risen brilliantly in the east on the Resurrection Sunday, April 5, 33 AD.

Psalm 65:8 "They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens: thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice."

The day following Jesus' crucifixion the sun may have rose in the west and set in the east. Jesus rose from the dead shortly after dark Saturday night, April 4, 33 AD. Thus the outgoing of the morning and of the evening. Thus the rejoicing of the resurrection!

Amos 8:9 "And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day:"

Job 5:14 "They meet with darkness in the daytime, and grope in the noonday as in the night."

The sun does not go down on an eclipse of the sun. The sun has six hours to go down from noon. For the sun to "go down" it must be moved suddenly.

Amos 1:1 "The words of Amos, who was among the herdmen of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel, two years before the earthquake."

This could not be king Uzziah, but king Azariah. Azariah must have begun his reign in 840 BC. 838 BC was the second year of king Azariah. This 13th year of King Le would be this 838 BC. A sun omen would be a cause for an epoch.

Matthew 28:1 "In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
28:2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it."

Jesus' resurrection is the important part. The great earthquake was an important sign. Earthquakes are often recorded when there was a sun miracle, perhaps because of the violent forces involved in moving the sun around the earth. The important part is the sun miracles and earthquakes point to Jesus' resurrection.

Amos 8:9 records the sun would go down at noon. The parallel is the three hours of darkness at noon when Jesus was on the cross. This record is of the sun moving. God moved the sun 360° around the earth for the sun to stand still in the sky at the noon position for 24 hours for Joshua probably August 24, 1241 BC. Then, when Jesus was on the cross at noon, God may have again moved the sun 360°, but within one hour. Thus for the sun to be dark the sun would have to travell at the speed of light = time stopped on the sun. If the sun was moved at the speed of light, the sun would become dark because time on the sun would have stopped.

"In his 13th year, the king was in Che; and Ho, baron of Kung, administered the imperial duties."
Note: This is a sure epoch, acknowledged by all Chinese chronologists.."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.154

There may have been a sun miracle, the omen for a new emperor, when emperor Heaou came to the throne in 868 BC = 900 years before Jesus' sacrifice in 33 AD. 868 + 32 = 900.

This was the same year Amaziah became king of Judah.

King E died in his 25th year = 868 BC. Note. The movements of King E were without proper regulation; the orders of his government were ill-timed; the holder of the time-jar did not attend his duty: - and the consequence was that the princes began to lose their virtue."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.152

King E died about the time of the passover, the first month of the Chinese spring. The error in the Time Jar may be the sun revolving 360° around the earth at the speed of light in one hour, and perhaps be like the three hours of darkness when Jesus was on the cross. Or the sun may have moved 180° forward or back that passover. The Time-Jar may have been an hourglass or sand clock.

2 Chronicles 24:22 "Thus Joash the king remembered not the kindness which Jehoiada his father had done to him, but slew his son. And when he died, he said, The LORD look upon it, and require it."

24:23 "And it came to pass at the end of the year, that the host of Syria came up against him:"

Back from Uzziah 802 BC 52 years to 750 BC. Azariah 840 BC to 802 BC. Amaziah 869 BC to 840 BC. The sun miracle of Amos 8:9 possibly may have occurred in this 868 BC, at the time of the passover. And thus be a type of the three hours of darkness when Jesus was on the cross also at noon. Then the keeper of the time jar, perhaps an hourglass, would be out of sync at least this hour of darkness at this Chinese spring and Jewish passover of 868 BC. Thus Amos in the time of Jeroboam the son of Joash, perhaps also Amaziah the son of Joash.

Zechariah 14:6 "And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear,H3368 nor dark:H7087"









The word for clear is precious. The word for dark is two words meaning condensed and congelation = the root for Caiaphas the High Priest. All three words start with the letter Qof.

There would be cold as there would be no sun for 12 more hours = a night of 24 hours, or multiples of 12 more hours. Thus the word for frost.

Friday night, April 3, 33 AD after sunset in the west, the sun may rise in the west to stand still = Israel in twilight. After many hours the sun may proceed from the west to set in the east - then suddenly and brilliantly rise in the east the resurrection morning.

The title of Psalm 22 "hind of the morning" Doe of a fallow deer + dawn, greyness of the morning twilight = the resurrection morning.

Zechariah 14:7 "But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light."

There may have been three days of twilight rather than darkness on the sabbath to equal a seven day sabbaton = 7 X 12 hours, before Jesus' resurrection on the first day of the week.

Joash the King of Israel reigned 40 years. This should be from 907 BC to 868 BC. Thus there may have also been a sun miracle in 907 BC to mark his new reign. 907 BC is 900 years before Jesus' birth in 7 BC.

2 Kings 11:19 "And he took the rulers over hundreds, and the captains, and the guard, and all the people of the land; and they brought down the king from the house of the LORD, and came by the way of the gate of the guard to the king's house. And he sat on the throne of the kings.
11:20 And all the people of the land rejoiced, and the city was in quiet: and they slew Athaliah with the sword beside the king's house.
11:21 Seven years old was Jehoash when he began to reign."

Jesus would be seven years old in 1 AD.

Thus, Jehoash reigned over Jerusalem from 907 BC. To mark his inauguration, God may have moved the sun. Thus, a sun miracle in September 907 BC would foretell Jesus' birth in September 12, 7 BC. Thus, the Chinese took the sun miracle as an omen and changed emperors in 907 BC.

2 Kings 8:1 "Then spake Elisha unto the woman, whose son he had restored to life, saying, Arise, and go thou and thine household, and sojourn wheresoever thou canst sojourn: for the LORD hath called for a famine; and it shall also come upon the land seven years."

This seven year famine may be from 914 BC to Jehoash's first year in 907 BC. Thus, there may have been a sun miracle at the end of the seven years in 907 BC that the Chinese took as an omen to change emperor then.

"In his, emperor Muh, 51st year, he made the code of Leu on Punishments, and gave a Charge to the prince of P'oo in Fung."

"In his, emperor Muh, 59th year, he died in the palace of Che."

His 59th year = 907 BC. His 51st year = 914 BC. Jehoash was born in 914 BC and became king of Judah in 907 BC. Both events may have been marked with sun miracles.

The pattern in dates of Jehoash being seven years old when he became king in 907 BC is like our calendar today 1 AD dating from Jesus' birth. Jesus must have been born seven years earlier than 1 AD in 7 BC.

2 Kings 12:1 "In the seventh year of Jehu Jehoash began to reign; and forty years reigned he in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Zibiah of Beersheba."

Forty years from 907 BC is 868 BC. From 868 BC to Jesus' sacrifice is 900 years to 33 AD.

The same 868 BC 28 of cycle 60 in the spring = passover, King Heaou began to reign in China. Thus, a sun miracle to mark Jesus' sacrifice 900 years later, the Chinese would take as an omen to change emperors.

The end of the year may be Yom Kippur in September 15, 868 BC. If the sun rose in the west and set in the east on the first day of the first month in spring like the sun had done at the dedication of the altar by Nehemiah in 458 BC and by the Maccabees in 164 BC, then the sun may move 186 days later, half an orbit later, on Yom Kippur. Thus the time-jar of King E would not tell time when the sun rose in the west on China.

"In his first year, which was sin-maou (28th of cycle 60 either 869 BC or 868 BC), in the spring, in the first month, when he came to the throne.."
The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.152.

Thus the sun miracle that was the omen for the Chinese to change emperors occurred about the first day of the first lunar month of spring. Saturday, March 12, 868 BC and the sun return at the end of the year, half an orbit later, on Yom Kippur, September 13, 868 BC.

Amaziah began to reign in 868 BC. Thus God may have made a sun miracle then, Zechariah the son of Jehoiada being like a type of Christ the Son of God. Thus this sun miracle exactly 900 years before Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD.

Or the sun may have moved on the passover, Saturday, March 26, 868 BC, and moved back on the last day of the feast of tabernacles, September 27, 868 BC.

2 Kings 14:23 "In the fifteenth year of Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel began to reign in Samaria, and reigned forty and one years."

2 Kings 15:1 "In the twenty and seventh year of Jeroboam king of Israel began Azariah son of Amaziah king of Judah to reign."

The 38th year of Azariah from his reign in 841 BC = 802 BC. Jeroboam did not live into the reign of Uzziah. The 38th year = the age of Jesus when he was crucified.

Jeroboam + 14 years of Amaziah, + 38 years of Azariah = 52 years, not 41 years. Azariah 38 years, Jeroboam 52 years, Uzziah 52 years.

Thus Jeroboam reigned 14 years of Amaziah and 38 years of Azariah to 802 BC. This year, 838 BC, was emperor Le's 14th year when:

830 BC = Note: This is styled the period of Kung-ho. Notes: "The drought had continued so long; that all huts were burnt up. When king Fun died, they consulted by the tortoise-shell the spirit of the sun, and were answered that Le had been done to death by some monstrous thing. When dukes Chow and Shaou had raised his oldest son Tsing to the throne, Ho of Kung returned to his state. He was the man of the greatest virtue."

"In his 13th year (from 852 BC = 840 BC = the 50th year = the jubilee from 1241 BC in Israel), the king was in Che; and Ho, baron of Kung, administered the imperial duties"

Note: This is a sure epoch, acknowledged by all Chinese chronologists. Instead of there being only one regent, however, as these Annals say, the more common accounts make out two, Kung and Ho, the dukes of Chow and Shaou."

If there was only one emperor and not two at the same time, some records may fill in the gap of 120 years of no history in China from 1087 BC too 968 BC. Kings do not like to share power. History being sequential and not a series of co-reigns.

"In his 22nd year, there was a great drought; and duke Yew of Ch'in died." = 830 BC when Azariah was 38 years old, the age of Jesus when he was crucified. This then should be the 38th year of Azariah's life rather than his reign. A sun miracle was often followed by a drought, because the weather systems on earth were affected by the sun moving around the earth.

The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books. p.154

Thus the earthquake and sun miracle of Amos may have occurred about 838 BC in Azariah's second year. 838 BC was about 400 years, and thus a 50 year jubile, after 1241 BC.

Isaiah was the son of Amoz. Spelling rules within the dates the Bible was written varied greatly. Thus, Amoz and Amos may be the same person. Amos must have lived in the time of Jeroboam before 800 BC. Then there is the possibility Isaiah being the next generation was the son of Amos the prophet.

Psalm 19:1 "To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
19:3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
19:4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
19:5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
19:6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof."

Nature tells the Gospel. Moreso, God moving the sun often on the 17th day of the 7th month to point to Jesus' birth to come on September 12, 7 BC, and even 50 year jubiles to Jesus' three and a half year ministry from August 29 AD, and to Jesus' crucifixion on the 49th year jubile, April 3, 33 AD. And God moving the sun in even 100 years to Jesus' birth in 7 BC and even 100 years to Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD.

We know the sun appears to move as earth rotates. However, this psalm is describing God moving the sun as do these other Bible verses as well:

Judges 5:31 "So let all thine enemies perish, O LORD: but let them that love him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might."

Malachi 4:2 "But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall."

If the sun has wings, the sun is not stationary, but God moved the sun.

Matthew 28:1 "In the end(G3796) of the Sabbath,G4521 as it began to dawnG2020 towardG1519 the firstG3391 day of the week,G4521 cameG2064 MaryG3137 MagdaleneG3094 andG2532 theG3588 otherG243 MaryG3137 to seeG2334 theG3588 sepulchre.G5028"

end(G3796 means backwardness. Sabbath,G4521 means a Sabbath of seven Sabbaths. Perhaps that Sabbath the sun rose in the west and set in the east.

Job 30:26 "When I looked for good, then evil came unto me: and when I waited for light, there came darkness."

Perhaps the sun did come out at night:

"the three Miao tribes were in great disorder and Heaven decreed their destruction. The sun came out at night and for three days it rained blood. A dragon appeared in the ancestral temple and dogs howled in the market place..."

In Shun's 32nd year, he commanded the prince of Hea to take the superintendence of the people, who thereupon visited the mountains of the four quarters. In his 33rd year, in the spring, in the first month, the prince of Hea, Yu, received the appointment to be successor, in the temple of the spiritual ancestor; and restored the division of the empire into nine provinces. In his 35th year Shun commanded the prince of Hea, Yu, to lead a punitive expedition against the Yew-maeou. The prince of Yew-maeou came and did homage.
The Chinese Classics III, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.116

33 years from Shun's first year in 2216 BC was this sun miracle about 2183 BC in the co-reign of Yu and Shun. The first year of Shun was in 2167 BC. This event in China may be 2200 years before Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD, in this first month of spring. The dragon which the Chinese say was brighter than the sun also appeared.

"For the sky to turn dark at noon and shine bright at night"
Huai Nan Tzu 5a.7

This could describe a solar eclipse and a full moon. However, this sentence may also describe sun miracles.

If the sun has wings it must be moving. The resurrection morning may be after the sun rose in the west and set in the east, morning position, then darkness for a few hours, and the sun rise again suddenly and brilliantly in the east.

Psalm 139:9 "If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
139:10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
139:11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
139:12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee."

Gideon may have fought through a long night. And returned before the sun rose. The parallel to Jesus could be a long Friday night, then the sun rise in the west and set in the east. Then the sun suddenly rise in the east.

If the same day as Joshua's long day; Joshua may have gone up all night from Gilgal at Jordan to Gibeon. Then Joshua too fight in the darkness at Gibeon. Then the sun rise in the west, stand still at noon for 24 hours, and set in the east. Then the sun suddenly rise in the east. Thus Gideon's night time battle victory before the sun was up.

However, more likely, the sun rose in the west that night, just after the beginning of the second watch. Then Joshua's men would have daylight to climb 18 miles from Gilgal to Gibeon. And Joshua reach Gibeon by midday.

The reference to Psalm 139:9 is Malachi 4:2. That the sun has wings means the sun moved.

Mark 16:2 "And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun."

At the rising of the sun at the evening of the seventh day must mean the sun set in the east, it became dark. And soon after the sun suddenly ascended in the east.

Ecclesiastes 1:5 "The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose."

Day is not normally made by the sun moving. "hateth to his place where he arose" may point to the sun setting in the east when Jesus was in the tomb. Then the sun arose suddenly in the east at Jesus' resurrection. Thus, the significance of these words of Solomon be Jesus' resurrection.

Thus Joshua by asking God to make both the sun stand still and the moon stay on the eastern horizon in the valley of Ajalon, Joshua was asking God that the sun not move from the noon position to set in the east because the sun and moon must move together. Thus the sun would be in the middle of the sky in the 12 PM position when the moon stayed in the valley of Ajalon in the east for 24 hours. The sun "hasted not to go down" means Joshua knew the sun was moving when it travelled west east. That is why Joshua knew what he was praying to God for, that the sun would dim and slow in its movement west east and stop in the middle of the sky. The sign of the resurrection morning would be the sun set in the east, and there be dark for about three hours.

Whereupon the sun suddenly and brilliantly rise in the east. Then the Amorites could escape to the nearby towns in the dark. Thus Joshua's prayer for more hours of light.

He would know the sun does not normally move when it appears to travel east west. But when the sun travelled west east to make a 12 hour day the sun must move 40 million miles per hour. When it stopped in the middle of the sky that day it had been travelling 40 million miles an hour and slowed to 20 million miles per hour. 24 hours later it hasted again to set in the east doubling its speed from 20 million miles per hour to 40 million miles per hour. 6 hours + 24 hours + 6 hours = 36 hours day light that day. The night time travel of the sun from 11 PM Friday August 23, 1241 BC to sunrise in the west = 90° and the night time travel from sunset in the east = 90° adding to 180° Thus the total movement of the sun was 5 X 180° east and the sun on the other side of the earth.

Earth could flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun, only the sun moved immediately 180° west to suddenly rise in the west to the noon position and start another half reverse orbit of the sun to leave no net missing minutes.

Exodus 15:1 "Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously:H1342 H1342 the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea."

"triumphed gloriously:H1342 H1342" means to mount up. Perhaps the sun rose in the west, or rose suddenly in the east.

Sun Set in the East

Here you see the sunset on Joshua's long day. Joshua 10:27

Joshua 10:27 "And it came to pass at the time of the going down of the sun, that Joshua commanded, and they took them down off the trees, and cast them into the cave wherein they had been hid, and laid great stones in the cave's mouth, which remain until this very day."





Ereb 6153 means sun set. This could equally mean sun set in the east. In the evening means between the evenings of sunset and dark. Bow 935 means the going down or setting of the sun. To come or to return. When the sun set in the east it returned to the east. This word appears as the origin of Greek words for the sun to bow down in the east before the early resurrection sunrise in the east. And also, the sun to bow down in the west on the two travelling to Emmaus with Jesus, when they said to Jesus "the day is far spent".

The sun could travel 45° east from the 11 PM position to the 8 PM position in August, then the sun travel 180° east to rise in the west to the noon position = 180° in six hours;, then stay at the noon position for 24 hours = 360°, then the sun set in the east 180° in six hours, then the sun move a further 45° east to the 3 AM position, the third hour of the night = a likeness to the resurrection morning and Gideon's attack at the second watch, the Roman watch over the tomb. Then that Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC the sun would stop and reverse course and travel 180° west from the 9 AM China position = 3 AM Israel position to the 3 PM Israel position.

Now we need to take care of the 40 minutes. We find a 40 minute difference between the length of the two half reverse orbits applied to the 48 hours sped up time because earth's orbit is elliptical. Now to find a reference to the beginning of the second half reverse orbit: In Judges 8:13 Gideon returned before the sun ascended, perhaps suddenly in the east at sevenfold brightness. Then earth could flow into a reverse orbit of the sun for the winter half reverse orbit to take care of the 40 minutes to February 15, 1240 BC.

Joshua may have been aware that the sun by moving west east was revolving around the earth that day. So when Joshua asked God to stop the sun he knew what he was talking about.

Joshua may have been afraid that the sun rising in the west, now at noon on Gibeon, would set in the east in six hours, and there be dark for about three hours, and the Amorites be able to flee to the cities and regroup. Thus Joshua prayed the sun above and the six day moon in the east, stay still in the sky. Thus, perhaps the same pattern may have been the sabbath Jesus was in the grave. The sun rising in the west and setting in the east, the sabbath ended at dark when the three Mary's went to prepare Jesus' body with spices. Then the sun suddenly rose in the east. Thus Joshua may have been aware of this pattern of sun miracles, and asked God to prolong the day before there be dark.

Joseph, Joshua's father 1088 years earlier in 2329 BC dreamed, and there was a sun miracle for Joseph when he was in Egypt. This may have been when the sun stood still in the sky for 10 days in China, whereupon Yao was made emperor over China and Joseph governor over Egypt in 2315 BC. Joshua would have been aware of his father's dream, and thus with his request to God to make the sun stand still, fulfilled this prophesy again in his lifetime.

Genesis 37:9 "And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me."

Matthew 5:45 "That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust."

The sun must suddenly rise in the east, August 25, 1241 BC. Then there would be a second reverse orbit of 177.6 days right after the first covers the shortest half of earth's elliptical orbit. 177.5/365.25 X 48 = 23:20 hours. Thus, both half orbits: 24:40 hours + 23:20 hours = 48 hours missing time. We have found the missing 40 minutes. 48 hours elapsed time countered by 48 hours missing time. The elapsed time: + 12 hours February 17, 1241 BC + (36 hours total day light 12 + 24, that August 24, 1241 BC) 60 hours in eastern movement of the sun - sun rise in the west stand still at noon for 24 hours and set in the east = 36 hours of daylight - the night of Friday August 23, 1241 BC - minus 12 hours Sunday August 25, 1241 BC sun move 180° west and + 12 hours February 15, 1240 BC the sun stand still at noon again.

The beginning of the second watch may be the time the sun rose in the west and stood still in the sky for 24 hours.

Then the sun set in the west and rose suddenly in the east in Judges 8:13 at sevenfold brightness like at Jesus' resurrection April 5, 33 AD.

Ephesians 5:14 "Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light."

At 11 PM August 23, 1241 BC the sun must travel 45° east to rise in the west at the 8 PM position then passing 180° in six hours to the noon position. Then the sun travelling 360° to stand still at noon for 24 hours. Then the sun travelling 180° to set in the east on Israel in six hours. Then the sun travelling 45° to the 9 AM position in China, 3 AM position in Israel. Earth temporarily flowing out of the reverse orbit of the sun. Then the sun reversing course, and suddenly and brilliantly travelling 180° west to the 3 PM position - or noon position because of a few hours to travel the 180°.

When the sun travelled east 45° and 180° then 360° and stood still in the sky then 180° and set in the east on Israel, then the sun move 45° further east to the 3 AM Israel position. And when the sun travelled west 180° perhaps the sun was brightened sevenfold.

Then when earth flowed out of the second reverse orbit February 15, 1240 BC, eclipse paths on earth's surface would be exactly where we would predict them to be backwards in time and daily coral lines would be exactly as we would expect them to be each day. Yes, you can find if the sun set on August 24, 1241 BC in the daily growth on a coral. However, if the sun were dimmed the layer may appear as any other daily layer. The sun may have been dimmed while it stood still in the sky to leave the same daily coral line, coral polyps lay down daily growth rings. "If a ring is added each day it could be that on a day with particularly bad weather no ring is added".

About a Whole Day

Joshua 10:13b "So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day."

The word for "about" is the letter Kaf and means "like the" or "about". The text reads "the sun stood still for nearly a full day" about 24 hours. Thus the word like a full day. - A day, Yom, may mean a range of light colors from sunrise to sunset. Thus the word "about" a day of 12 hours as there are 10 hours in winter sun light and 14 hours sun light in summer. However, a whole day includes the night and day and is one complete revolution of 24 hours rather than about 12 hours of sun light. Thus the sun stood still in the sky for like the full revolution of one full day of 24 hours. The first half orbit is short 40 minutes in missing time in the 24 hours sped up time for the first half orbit.

Then the 40 missing minutes may be applied to the 24 hours the sun stood still August 24, 1241 BC. Thus the term the sun stood still in the sky for "about" a whole day is very accurate. The sun stood still for 23:20 hours while the sun revolved around the earth 350°. The term "from the half of heaven" means earth was already in a reverse orbit from the sun moving 180° six months earlier. From the half of heaven means from the sun's position among the stars. From February 17, 1241 BC is half an orbit to August 24, 1241 BC when the sun must return and the night sky of the night of August 24, 1241 BC be 180° different than the night before as the sun was on the other side of the earth.

Earth in a reverse orbit since February 17, 1241 BC, meant the sun moved 180° to the August zodiac, then continued in six months, half an orbit, to the February zodiac in August. The sun stood still from the half of heaven, noon, that day for 24 hours. If the sun travelled a straight path around the earth, the sun would appear in its noon position, to rise 23° then decline 23°. The sun at its heighest would reach 80°, 10° less than middle.

Then if you can picture the sun revolving around the earth 350° with earth's rotation to stand still at noon Israel time for 23:20 hours, about a full day.

John 11:9 "Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world."

The sun stood still "in the midst" of heaven is literally translated as "from the half" of heaven"





The red letter Bet, is thought to have originally meant "from" instead of "in" or "with".

If you look closely, the red letter Bet looks like a one room house, which is its meaning. The sun would be in the zodiac house of Virgo where it normally would be August 24, 1241 BC, but meeting the same house briefly in earth's reverse orbit. Half an orbit after the fall of Jericho, February 17, 1241 BC, was Joshua's long day, August 24, 1241 BC. The sun would revolve aroud the earth 360° for 24 hours, stopping again at the half orbit point of August 24, 1241 BC. The sun may then proceed to set in the east, after a few hours, suddenly rise in the east to stop again at this half orbit point, the sun again on the other side of earth, and earth flow again into a reverse orbit of the sun. Then the sun return February 15, 1240 BC and earth flow out of the reverse orbit.

If the sun moved with earth's rotation 12 hours, that is half way, Israel would see stars from the other half of heaven that night. While demonstrating to my wife, in the summer of 1999, the sun moving 180° around the earth to stand still in the sky it occurred to me earth would continue moving but now in reverse. Ancient Greek and Chinese records describe earth in a reverse orbit. You will see the sun may have stood still in the sky for 12 hours as it moved 180° to the other side of earth. Only this was not Joshua's long day at Gibeon. The first day of the seventh month may have been when Joshua spoke the blessing and cursing of the Law on Mount Ebal, Sunday, July 21, 1241 BC.

Thus, Joshua's long day be the seventh day of the eighth month, August 24, 1241 BC.

Leviticus 23:24 "Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a Sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.
23:25 Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD."

Perhaps then the Israelites returned to Gilgal the next day.

Then the following month, the first lunar day of the eighth month, the Gibeonites met Joshua at Gilgal. Next, on the third day, of the week, Tuesday, of the lunar month, August 21, 1241 BC. Then a few days later the five kings of the Amorites attacked Gibeon, and Gibeon sent for Joshua, and Joshua ascended Friday night to come to the aid of Gibeon.

Joshua 9:16 "And it came to pass at the end of three days after they had made a league with them, that they heard that they were their neighbours, and that they dwelt among them."

The sun must return six months after Joshua's long day and be the extra day light Joshua needed at the battle of Merom and earth flowed out of a reverse orbit one year after the fall of Jericho. Likewise, the night after Joshua's long day the Israelites would see stars from the other half of heaven.

These little words in the Bible are important, the word about, the letter Kaf:

Luke 3:23 "And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age,"

Jesus was probably born the 17th of the seventh month, Sunday, September 13, 7 BC. Jesus began his public ministry with his birthday, the 17th of the seventh month, September 14, 29 AD. Jesus began to be 35 then. There is no year zero. Thus Jesus began to be about thirty years of age. The original of Luke may have been Hebrew. Then the letter Kaf = about. This word about is just like the record when the sun stood still for about a day less 40 minutes, about a whole day, Jesus began his ministry five years after he turned thirty, in the spring/summer when he was baptized. Thus Jesus' age in Luke would be in Jesus' 34th year before Jesus turned 35 years old, September 14, 29 AD. Jesus would be 34 years old before September 14, 29 AD.

2 Chronicles 20:31 "And Jehoshaphat reigned over Judah: he was thirty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi."

2 Chronicles 15:19 "And there was no more war unto the five and thirtieth year of the reign of Asa."

Jesus began his ministry in September 29 AD when he was thirty-five.

Many dates in the Bible point to 40 and 39 and 38 years. Thus the purpose of the Bible to point to the life of Christ.

So Jesus would be 34 and a half at the Passover in Jerusalem in March 29 AD. The meaning may be Jesus was in his 30th decade when he was baptized.

Litterally, the decade of three = Strongs 5144 + Strongs 5140. Thus, 35 years old is halfway through the 30th decade. Thus 35 years is exactly the 30th decade. The Syriac and Persic versians leave out the word began because it is redundant. Jesus officially began his ministry at the beginning of the 50 year jubile, which should be - Friday, September 9, 29 AD when in Luke 4 he spoke from Isaiah 61.

You will see the probable was that the sun revolved to the other side of earth for a early sunrise for Joshua to conquer Jericho on the Sabbath, February 17, 1241 BC.

Descending Sun

See Hezekiah's Sign

Here we see how the sun stood still in the noon position for Joshua for "about" a full day of 24 hours. The missing time was 40 minutes less than 24 hours. Perhaps the sun revolved around the earth 350° standing still in the sky for 23:20 hours elapsed time. Then when the sun returned February 15, 1240 BC at noon Israel time, this was 6 PM China time for king Wan. Then the six day moon would be above and the sun had set and the stars of Fang/Scorpius came out with the planets. Then the sun stood still for 12 hours at the noon position on Israel at the battle of Merom, and at the twilight sunset position on China. Then the sun moved a further 10° east to make up for the 24:40 hours, 40 minutes missing time, in the second half reverse orbit.

Thus the sun moved 190° and ascended in the west to the sunset position. That is, the sun set in the west in China the night of Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC, then rose in the west 10° within 12 hours as the sun stood still at noon on Israel. Thus the sun moved 190° in 12 hours. Thus king Wan both saw the stars come out, then the sun come out. Thus he dreamt he was clothed in the sun and the moon.

The reference in The Missing Day Story to the sun's shadow descending backwards in 2 Kings 20:9-11 was the Hebrew word Mahaleh, for ascending as well. Perhaps the second reference to the sun setting in the east is equally applicable to Joshua's long day. The sun descended, then ascended. The sun ascended in Judges 8:13 when Gideon returned before the sun was up, before the sun ascended for a second half reverse orbit, to correct for this 40 minutes. Also, of note is the reference to the sun going backwards. That the sun ascended, perhaps it had descended. The sun might have gone backwards to rise/descend from the west at 11 PM August 23, 1241 BC on the Sabbath being the Hebrew Saturday, stood still at noon for 24 hours, then set in the east and then suddenly ascended August 25, 1241 BC in the east.

Perhaps the sun was brightened to sevenfold when it ascended in the east to the noon position, and dimmed when it stood still 24 hours, then set in the east. The sudden sunrise in the east Sunday August 25, 1241 BC was like the early sudden sunrise on Jesus' resurrection. Perhaps the sun rose in the west the night of August 23, 1241 BC finally setting in the east 36 hours later - a 36 hour long day. The sun would rise in the west to the meridian in China before suddenly and brilliantly moving west for a sudden sunset on China in the west and sunrise in the east on Israel. Then the moon would set in the east and day appear dim like it does on a heavy cloudy day. Then this day may be like the resurrection morning.

Joshua may have rightly thought that the sun now at noon would set in the east in six hours, then there would be three hours of darkness and the enemy get away. Then the sun would suddenly rise in the east for a short day of about six hours. Joshua needed victory that day, and 24 more hours of daylight was what he really needed.

1 Thessalonians 5:8 "But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation."

1 Samuel 9:26 "And they arose early: and it came to pass about the spring of the day, that Samuel called Saul to the top of the house, saying, Up, that I may send thee away. And Saul arose, and they went out both of them, he and Samuel, abroad."

"the spring of the day" was the word alah, meaning to ascend. Thus the sun may have ascended suddenly in the east after setting in the east for only a few hours. Thus the early morning. And thus the pattern of the resurrection Sunday.

Joshua 10:14 "And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel."

That there was no day like it for Joshua that God hearkened to a man must have meant that it was almost blasphemy at other times to command the sun to stand still and God did not hearken to man at other times. However, Joshua may have intended to ask God to make the sun stand still when he urged the Israelites to go up at once and conquer the promised land soon after the Israelites left Egypt:

Numbers 14:9 "Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their shade is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not."

The word "their shade is departed from them" Joshua may have meant a sunrise and the sun standing still at noon for 24 hours while they got the victory. Like wise, the king of the Midianites Gideon slew, Zalmunna, means "shade taken away".

Even when Isaiah prayed the sun to retreat ten steps, it was God that commanded Isaiah to ask Hezekiah if the shadow should decline ten steps, retreat ten steps.

Judges 5:20 "They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera."

The stars in their courses may simply mean the sun moved to the other side of earth that day. Then that night Israel would see stars from the other half of heaven. The stars would be seen to set in the west and disappear in the west as earth orbited the sun in its normal counter clockwise orbit. In the reverse orbit before this the stars would appear more and more from the west each night. Thus "the stars in their courses fought against Sisera" was like a turnpike that did not let Sisera through.

Septuagint Judges 5:20 "The stars from heaven set themselves in array, they set themselves to fight with Sisara out of their paths."

This Greek verse may suggest the five planets were also seen to be out of place that night in Israel as they were seen in conjunction in Fang/Libra in China that night in king Wan's dream.

Judges 5:31 "So let all thine enemies perish, O LORD: but let them that love him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might."

The reference to 2 Kings 20:9-11 may be correct. The sun must rise in the west and set in the east for Hezekiah. Thus 180° of sky are represented by 10 steps.

The book of Daniel speaks of hours of the day. Thus in this 703 BC, just 110 years before Daniel in 590 BC, the divisions of hours may have been known. Thus the ten steps in the upper dial of Ahaz could simply depict ten hours, almost 180°

Thus Hezekiah's sign was similar to the Sabbaton the disciples rested - the sabbaton was a Friday night of seven nights and the sun descended from the west to set in the east that Saturday. Perhaps that night was 36 hours longer. Perhaps the sun stood still that Saturday noon for 24 hours as it revolved around the earth 360° and was like Joshua's long day. Then that Saturday, day light, would last 36 hours. I do not know how long the day lasted Saturday, April 4, 33 AD. It could have been a long day, a 12 hour day, or a few hours of day light. Nevertheless, probably the sun rose in the west and set in the east that day. Then the sun set in the east, then rose in the east suddenly and brilliantly that resurrection Sunday morning.

The resurrection may be likened to the healing of the seven fold sun suddenly ascending from the east. Thus the shadow would both go backwards then forward 10 steps = 180 degrees = 10 hours. Thus Hezekiah may have been healed by a sevenfold sun at sunrise, after three days of darkness and the sun rising in the west and setting in the east, a sign of the resurrection. Thus Joshua's long day was very similar. There is the possibility Hezekiah's Sign was in 703 BC, probably with the same pattern of sun miracles as leading up to Jesus' resurrection. Thus the reference to II Kings 20 works.

Isaiah 30:26 "Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound."

"the light of seven days" may indicate a long night and day after Jesus was crucified. Some suggest Jesus was crucified on Thursday to give three days to Sunday. However, the three days may have been accomplished by moving the sun to equal 3 x 24 hours to Jesus' resurrection.

Herodotus, a Greek historian, wrote that the Egyptian priests reported:

"Thus the whole number of years [of early Egyptian history] is 341 pharaohs, in which entire space, they said, no god had ever appeared in a human form; nothing of this kind had happened either under the former or under the later Egyptian kings. The sun, however, had within this period of time, on four several occasions, moved from his wonted course, twice rising where he now sets, and twice setting where he now rises. Egypt was in no degree affected by these changes; the productions of the land, and of the river, remained the same; nor was there anything unusual in the diseases or the deaths."
The History of Herodotus, chapter 2

Herodotus also wrote that no reversal of sunrise occurs during the sothis cycle. This may indicate that the sun rose in the west and set in the east the year of the Exodus, Friday, March 30, 1281 BC at the end of the 1460 year sothis cycle. Then from 148 AD the end of the Sothis cycle was symbolized by the Phoenix on coins minted. The Sothis cycle really ended 1460 years in 180 AD. The 49 year jubile and the 50 year jubile from 1241 BC and the Egyptian sothis cycle coincided in 180 AD. Perhaps the date of this coin with the phoenix at the end of the Egyptian sothis cycle is actually this 180 BC. Perhaps there was a sun miracle in 180 AD. From Jesus' birth in 7 BC to 180 AD is 187 years. Methuselah lived 187 years.

The Jewish jubile 50 year cycle and 49 year cycle coincide with 179 BC and 180 BC: 29 AD + 50 + 50 + 50 = 179 AD. 33 AD + 49 + 49 + 49 = 180 AD. From the Exodus to Jesus' crucifixion 1281 BC - 33 AD = 1313 years = 13 X 101. From Abraham's birth in 2607 BC to the Exodus in 1281 BC is 1313 years + 13. From Abraham's birth in 2607 BC to Jesus' birth in 7 BC = 2607 - 7 = 2600; 2600 / 13 = 200. If pharaoh Merneptah died in 3.5, back 3 months from the end of the month June 30, and 5 days forward = 3.5; this would be April 3, 1281 BC. Jesus was crucified on April 3, 33 AD and rose from the dead April 5, 33 AD. Likewise the Sojourn in Egypt was 1026 years. 2 X 513 years. Methuselah lived to year 969 = 800 + 13 X 13.

Or 51 X 19 years. Lunar cycles repeat every 19 years. Adam from Armenian sothis 5368 BC at year 800 = Armenian sothis 4568 BC - 969 years of Methuselah = 3599 BC = year 600 from Egyptian sothis 4199 BC. This 3599 BC being another year 600 beside the year 600 Armenian sothis 3307 BC of Noah's flood. If Methuselah was born 3599 BC, then Lamech would be born 3494 BC when Methuselah was 105 years old, to live 182 years to 3312 BC = year 595 Armenian sothis.

The night Jesus was betrayed was Thursday, the 13th day of the lunar month, April 2, 33 AD.

The Armenian Sothis calendar is matched by year and month to the Egyptian Sothis calendar in 388 BC. The Egyptian calendar is 40 years more recent than published. Simply, the begin Sothis date was not 1320 BC, but 1281 BC = the end of the calendar and the Exodus. Thus, even the Egyptian Sothis calendar began again in 179 AD and not 140 AD.

At the same time, the reigns of pharaohs are 76 years further back. The 76 years plus the 40 years = 115 years = a full 30 month that matches solar eclipse dates perfectly = 6 X 19 = 115 years; 115 / 4 years back one day = 30 days and a perfect match of eclipse dates to the month. Yet the reigns of pharaohs are pushed back 76 years. Thus the date of the split of the catholic churches in 550 AD to mark the begin date of the Armenian sothis calendar should be pushed back the same 76 years of chronology as the Egyptian sothis calendar.

More likely the adjustment to the Armenian Sothis calendar is 76 years further back than 115 years further forward, just as the Egyptian Sothis calendar is 76 years back. All the solar eclipse dates from Akhu En Aten are 76 years further back.

Because the Egyptian dates are 76 years further back, the Armenian dates may be also. Then simply 1281 BC + 1313 + 1313 = 3907 BC. 3907 BC + 32 years to Jesus' sacrifice in April 3, 33 AD = 3939 years. Jesus lived 38 and a half years from September 12, 7 BC to April 3. 33 AD. Thus the significance of 39 years that point to Jesus' perfect life. 2010 AD - 1460 - 1460 - 1460 - 1460 - 76 = 3907 BC. 3907 BC is 3900 years before Jesus' birth.

101 X 39 = 3939. 3907 + 32 = 3939. 101 X 13 = 1313. 1281 BC - 1313 = 33 AD.

Adam in year 800 Armenian Sothis = 3907 BC - 1460 + 800 = 4568 BC. 4600 years before Jesus' sacrifice.

The full moon, Thursday/Friday, May 10, 4568 BC Julian = April 3, 33 AD in the tropical calendar. 4568 / 128 years = 36 days shift in the Julian calendar to the tropical calendar equinox. 10 + 26 = 36. 30 of April - 26 = 4th or 3rd day of April = April 3, 33 AD. Thus, Adam was born a type of the redemption of Jesus.

Half an orbit after May 11, 4568 BC is 186 days, November 23, 4568 BC. Adam lived from year 800 to year 930 Armenian Sothis. The first appearing of Sirius = Sothis, was July 16 in Egypt. New years had backed up from July 16 to this November 25 in this 930 years. 930 / 4 = 233 days about this November 25, 4438 BC.

Thus, God knew Adam would sin before Adam was born. That the provision for sin would be in his son's sacrifice April 3, 33 AD. Thus, Adam's birth if in 4568 BC was a professy of Jesus' sacrifice in 33 AD.

The seven day week must have already been in existance for the full moon = 14th day of the moon, 14th day of the month, = Friday, May 11, 4568 BC = the year Adam was born in year 800 Armenian Sothis. Thus Adam lived 130 years from year 800 to year 930. This, is much the same as we say this is year 2016 today. Thus both the seven day week has been kept from creation, and the beginning of our calendar, the year of our Lord, AD = Anno Domini, has been counted from the birth of Christ.

If year 800 was 4568 BC, then year 1 should be 5367 BC. Example 800 years back from 3768 BC May 14 is the full moon 4568 BC. Thus, September 24 the full moon 4567 BC 800 years back is the full moon September 20, 5367 BC, = 13th day of Hebrew month + 4 days = Saturday, September 24, 5367 BC.

Year one, 5367 BC = 5399 years before Jesus' sacrifice in 33 AD. Thus, the earliest Bible date points to Jesus' sacrifice. The earliest Egyptian date 1460 years back from 4198 BC is 5658 BC. If back 10 more years, = 3 days back, 3 days X 4 years = 12 years, it would be 5668 BC = 5700 years before Jesus' sacrifice in 33 AD.

The fall equinox would be the new moon November 3, 5367 BC. Then the 17th lunar Hebrew day would be November 22, 5367 BC. In Adam's 930th year 930 / 4 = 232 days, back from July 16 = new years November 26, 4438 BC = the same November 22, 5367 BC = 17th day from the fall equinox = 17th day of the lunar month.

Then this 5367 BC = 5360 years before Jesus' birth in 7 BC.

Luke 1:59 "And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father."

John 7:22 "Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man."
7:23 If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day?
7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

Jesus must have been born Saturday, September 12, 7 BC = 10 days before the fall equinox September 22, 7 BC. Then likewise, October 22, 5367 BC be 10 days before the fall equinox November 3, 5367 BC and be the 17th lunar day. Likewise, Jesus be circumcised on the eighth day about the autumn equinox.

If year one Armenian Sothis is 3907 BC, year 600 of Noah's flood would be 3307 BC. The sun to move on day 10 of the second month, Noah to enter the ark one week later on day 17. The sun move day 10, Saturday, March 16, 3307 BC. The sun move back one half orbit later on the 17th day of the seventh month, Sunday, September 15, 3307 BC = September 13, 7 BC. Then the sun move the next day September 16, 3307 BC, and move back one full year later, Sunday, March 16, 3306 BC. Noah then leave the ark one week later, Saturday, March 22, 3306 BC.

The dimensions of Noah's ark are similar to the dimensions of the ark of the covenant. The pattern of dates, the flood in March = Jesus sacrfice, the ground dried one year later and the rainbow = the resurrection, the ark rested the 17th day of the seventh month = Jesus' birth September 12, 7 BC.

In this Julian calendar, September 15, 3307 BC was the same 17th day of the 7th month. Thus, the sun miracle not only on the 17th day of the lunar month, but on the 17th day of the static month of September in the Sothis Julian Calendar. The calendar had backed up 600 years = 600 / 4 = 150 days. 150 / 30 = 5 months. Month 7 + 5 months = one year 12 months.

The spring equinox was April 19, 3307 BC which also was the full moon. Thus Noah's flood was a type of Jesus' sacrifice the full moon April 3, 33 AD.

The tale of Gilgamesh tells of the constellation Aquarius being associated with the great flood. The sun would be in Aquarius in January 3300 BC, probably the first month in Genesis 7. If the sun moved to the other side of earth in the second month, Aquarius would appear overhead at midnight that month, the zodiac progressing in reverse.

The sun may move seven days before Noah went into the ark and God closed the door on Saturday the 17th day of the second lunar month. Then the sun may move 186 days later, half an orbit later, the 17th lunar day of the seventh month. Then the adjustment from the Armenian Sothis Calendar, 3907 BC, to the Egyptian Sothis Calendar, 4198 BC, be 310 years.

Noah in year 600 best fits 3307 BC = 3300 years before Jesus' birth. Many Bible dates that point to Jesus work very well.

Genesis 5:21 "And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:
5:22 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:
5:23 "And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:
5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him."

The 365 years point to the 4 X 365 year sothis calendar. They had no February 29 leap year. The sothis calendar backed up one day every four years.

"Enoch after we had taught him..six jubilees of years.."
4Q227

Six jubiles of years = 300 years. From the begin date of the Armenian Sothis calendar, from 3907 BC to 3607 BC to Jesus' birth in 7 BC. Then 300 more years to Noah in year 600 = 3307 BC. Enoch at year 365 = 3542 BC. = The jubile in 1241 BC at the crossing of the Jordan.

If the Armenian Sothis calendar to match the Egyptian Sothis calendar was moved back 76 years. 2010 AD - 76 - 1460 - 1460 - 1460 - 1460 = 3907 BC. Then the begin Armenian Sothis year would be 3907 BC. Then this year 300 of Enoch would be 3607 BC. All foretelling Jesus' birth September 12, 7 BC.

Genesis 5:18 "And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch:"

162 years back from year 300 Armenian Sothis: 3607 BC - 162 years = 3767 BC = 3700 years to Jesus' crucifixion. Also, 162 years forward of 3707 BC = 3545 BC = 3507 BC + 38 years of Jesus' life.

The Sothis new year was when Sirius first appeared before dawn. Sothis 365 from 3907 BC should be the full moon, April 18, 3543 BC, counting back from the Egyptian Sothis new year July 16. 365 days divided by four = 92 days back. However, counting back from the Armenian Sothis new years, July 10, 92 days back, the new years should be the full moon Sunday, April 7, 3542 BC. Thus, Enoch was taken probably at new years on Sunday, at the time of year, and of month, of Jesus' sacrifice and resurrection. Thus the translation of Enoch was a type of the resurrection of Christ.

Enoch at Sothis year 365 = 3842 BC, was 3600 years before Joshua's conquest of Palestine in 1241 BC.

The Egyptian Sothis Cycle of about 1460 years ended at the Exodus in 1281 BC. Back 1456 years the cycle began 2737 BC. Back 1458 years the cycle began 4196 BC. Forward 310 years = the Armenian begin of their sothis, 3907 BC.

From the beginning of the Egyptian Sothis Cycle in 4198 BC is 310 years to the beginning of the Armenian Sothis Cycle 3907 BC. 365 years of Enoch signifies the Sothis calendar that the calendar backs up 365 days in 4 X 365 years.

The Arrnenian calendar is meant. And year 300 Armenian be the birth of Enoch = 3607 BC. Thus Enoch may have been translated on the equinox on new years = Jesus' resurrection April 5, 33 AD.

Lamech lived 182 years. If Lamech was born on the Egyptian Sothis date 777 BC, 3421 BC, then died 182 years later, that would be 3239 BC. Then if Lamech died 192 years later and not 182 years later, Lamech would have died the year of Noah's flood also, 3230 BC. Then both Methuselah and Lamech could have died the year of Noah's flood if in 3230 BC.

There where two sothis calendars, the Armenian with a begin date 3907 BC and back 1460 years to 5367 BC. The Egyptian, with a start date 4198 BC back 1460 years from 2737 BC. If Lamech lived 111 years, not 182 years; the difference of 777 years and 595 years is 182 years. The difference may be from the two different calendars.

Thus the 777 years. The number 666 is incomplete unless is added 111 = 777 years.

Then Lamech be born year 777 Egyptian from 4200 BC = 3422 BC, and live 112 years, not 182 years, to die at 3311 BC = year 595 Armenian from 3907 BC.

However, Isaac lived 180 years. So there is no reason Lamech could not live 182 years and Methuselah live 187 years. A generation is often 70 years. So, if Lamech lived 182 years to 3312 BC, and was born when Methuselah was 70, then Methuselah would be born in 3564 BC. Then Enoch would live to Armenian sothis year 365 = 3542 BC. Then Enoch would be born in year 300 = 3607 BC, and Methuselah be born when Enoch was about 40 years old.

777 years back from 3312 BC = 4089 BC. The (xth) jubile, in the Dead Sea Scrolls, in 1241 BC when Joshua crossed the Jordan River could be from this 4090 BC. 4090 BC - 1241 BC = 1700 years. Adam may have lived from 4568 BC 130 years to 4438 BC, also from about this 4440 BC jubile year, to 1241 BC.

If Lamech lived 182 years to 3312 BC, Lamech may have been 68 when he had Noah. Noah may have been born 120 years before the flood in 3427 BC. Back 777 years from Noah wouuld be 4203 BC = the Egyptian new sothis cycle.

Genesis 6:3 "And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years."

120 years after 3427 BC is about 3307 BC.

Noah's flood works best for the date 3307 BC = 3300 years before Christ. From the Egyptian sothis date 4200 BC to the Armenian sothis date 3907 BC is about 300 years. From Enoch at year 300 = 3607 BC - Methuselah 90 when he had Lamech, Lamech 90 when he had Noah, 120 years to the flood = 3307 BC. Noah 20 when he had Shem. Shem 100 when he left the ark after the flood. = Shem born in 3407 BC.

Genesis 11:11 "And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years, and begat sons and daughters."

The Egyptian sothis from 4198 BC to 2737 BC. 1460 years to 2737 BC. 500 years back from year 900 = 3302 BC = the flood in 3307 BC.

3907 BC - 600 years = 3307 BC. 120 years to 3307 BC from 3427 BC. 180 years back 3427 BC = 3607 BC = Enoch in year 300.

Methuselah at 187 and Lamech at 182 years, may also point to days between sun movements. From the spring equinox to the fall equinox = half an orbit, are 186 days. Likewise from the summer solstice to the winter solstice, half an orbit, are 182 days.

If Methuselah was born in 3607 BC = 3600 years before Jesus, then he would live 187 years to 3420 BC. 969 years back from 3420 BC = 4389 BC. 187 years forward from 4389 BC = 4202 BC = the Egyptian Sothis begin date. Thus both ends of year 969 would have 187 years.

From Adam's birth in the Armenian Sothis year 800 = 4568 BC, 969 years to 3600 BC. The 969 years could point from Adam's birth to Methuselah's birth. Then Methuselah may have had Lamech in his 105th year in 3494 BC, and Lamech die at 182 years old in 3312 BC.

4198 BC Egyptian Sothis start date - 777 years = 3421 BC. Is about 120 years to Noah's flood in 3307 BC.

Counting generations back; Methuselah lived 187 years, died in year 969. If Methuselah was 70 when he had Lamech, he should be born 3564 BC and live to 3377 BC.

Noah's flood in year 600 means the calendar backed up 150 days from new years in July to February.

The Botai domesticated the horse in 3500 BC just north of the Aral Sea where was most probably the flood of Noah. They lived on a river bank that was destroyed by flood before 3100 BC in Kazahkstan.

The flood of the river that swept away the Botai people could have been in 3307 BC in the same Noah's flood. Even if the Botai were flooded and destroyed in 3100 BC, Noah could have preserved their domesticated horse in the ark in 3307 BC. With the destruction of the Botai, the only two surviving domestic horse may have been on board Noah's Ark.

The site of Botai is located on the Iman-Burluk River, a tributary of the Ishim River. The site has at least 153 pithouses. The settlement was partly destroyed by the steeply eroding river bank "

Thus, the Iman-Burluk River would overflow during Noah's flood beside the Aral Basin.

Psalm 147:16 "He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.
147:17 He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?
147:18 He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow."

"The Caspian is only the remnant of a very much larger Quaternary body of water, which also included the Aral Sea. The general lowering trend seems to have been halted in the 4th millennium b.c."

Thus, the glaciers that suddenly melted into the Aral Sea, in the forth millenium BC - 4000 BC to 3000 BC could be Noah's flood, 3307 BC. Both the melting glaciers and the rain flooded the Aral Sea. The rapid rise of water was very dangerous for the people living there at that time because the ground around the Aral Sea is flat for many miles.

2 Peter 3:5 "For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
3:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:"

Thus, Noah must have lived near the Aral Sea.

Noah's flood could have been in Egyptian sothis year 600 from 4197 BC = 3598 BC. And Noah may have saved the domesticated horse that the Botai adopted by 3500 BC.

Nevertheless, the calendar of the Bible in Noah's day must have been the Armenian sothis calendar, not the Egyptian sothis calendar.

Kazahkstan was the area of Noah's flood in the Aral and Caspian Sea basin.

The first month of Noah's flood should be in February in both the Armenian and East Indian calendars.

Noah's flood was most likely in 3307 BC, 3300 years before Christ.

The Sojourn in Egypt was written from the 430th (Sothis) year to the end (of the Sothis calendar). Thus from 2307 BC, the 430th year from 2737 BC, to the Exodus in 1281 BC the end of the 1460 (1456) year Sothis calendar. The Egyptian sothis calendar had no February 29 leap year. The new years day was July 16 when Sirius first appeared at 4:15 AM. Thus Sirius would disappear for 70 days and reappear July 16. Every four years the calendar would back up one day. In four years new years would be July 15, four more years new years would be July 14. In 4 X 365 days = 1460 years, new years would back up to July 16 and the first appearing of Sirius at 4:15 AM.

The Sojourn would be written as Tav-Shin-Shin-Bet-Vav (400+300+300+20+6) = 1026 years. Thus if the total years were thus written, only the year 400 may have survived and the remainder 26 years be assumed 30 years. The end of the Sothis calendar was supposed to be 1460 years.

Thus if the first year of the Sojourn into Egypt was 430 Sothis, the end of the Sothis calendar when the calendar had backed up 365 days from July 16 to July 16, actually back from July 16 to July 17 because Sirius rose first before dawn a day early = 4 years early, July 17 1282 BC = Sothis cycle 1456 years = Sojourn 1026 years, because the Egyptians did not have February 29 leap year would equal 4 X 365 = 1460 years. Thus the Sojourn could be written in Hebrew 400 (300 + 300) 30.

The missing letters 300 + 300 leaving 400 + 30. See Judaism 101, Hebrew Alphabet. Thus from the Sothis year 430 in 2307 BC to the end of the Sothis cycle is what was written. Yet the duration could be written in Hebrew 400 .. 30 as well. Thus the confusion of the years 430: The captivity was 400 years, the last 400 years of the 1026 year Sojourn in Egypt.





Genesis 15:12 "And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.
15:13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
15:14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance."

The appearing of Sirius 4:15 AM July 19 should have ended the Sothis cycle in 1460 years from 1281 BC in 179 AD.

There was a coin struck in Alexandria in 138 AD in the reign of Antoninus Pius. Some had estimated the new sothis cycle should begin then. However, the Egyptians had lost track of time and this was an estimation. The actual 1460 years after 1281 BC would be 178 AD. 144 years after Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD is 177 AD. There was a coin minted in Antioch with the Phoenix on the face, Constantius II AE3. 348-350 AD. Perhaps Phoenixes appeared in these years. Tacitus wrote the phoenix appeared in 33 AD in Egypt. Thus there must have been a sun miracle at the time of Jesus' crucifixion. The Egyptian Bennu, phoenix, is called the lord of jubilees. Clement wrote about the Phoenix in 180 AD perhaps inspired by a sun miracle that year.

Nevertheless, the sun was said to have rose in the west and set in the east seven days before the great flood of Noah in year 600 of the sothis cycle. The Aral Sea may be the site of the great flood of Noah. A great lake formed there briefly about 3500 BC.
Aralkum - a man - made desert, p.18

If Terah's death in year sothis 205 was when Abraham was 75 in 2532 BC. Then the new sothis cycle 205 + 2532 = 2737 BC

Genesis 5:30 "And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and five years, and begat sons and daughters:
5:31 And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven years: and he died."

The Armenian calendar began about 5175 BC. Then 1460 years later was 3715 BC the next sothis cycle. The Egyptian sothis cycle began again in 4198 BC. This is a 483 year difference, about 500 years.

Jesus may have been crucified when he was 38 years six months. Double this is 77 years. The 777 years of Lamech may point to Jesus.

Sirius was observed by 7000 BC in Armenia.

Ancient people may have understood earth rotates to produce day and night. Then when the sun rose in the west, stood still, and set in the east, to rise suddenly in the east; God had moved the sun at terrific speeds. Also, Joshua expected the sun rising in the west to set in the east in 12 hours. He may have understood after setting in the east the sun would suddenly and brilliantly rise in the east for a short day. He needed a long day to get the victory. Thus Joshua's prayer to God for the sun to stand still.

"[99 BC] When C. Murius and L. Valerius were consuls, in Tarquinia, there fell in different places...a thing like a flaming torch, and it came suddenly from the sky. Toward sunset, a round object like a globe, or round circular shield took its path in the sky, from west to east."

"[90 BC] In the territory of Spoletium (65 Roman miles north of Rome, in Umbria) a globe of fire, of golden colour, fell to the earth, gyrating. It then seemed to increase in size, rose from the earth, and ascended into the sky, where it obscured the disc of the sun, with its brilliance. It revolved towards the eastern quadrant of the sky [Harold T. Wilkins, Flying Saucers on the Attack, pp.164-69]"

There is a long list of very bright objects, brighter than the sun, Mysteries of the Unexplained, p.207.

Then perhaps at times a bright angel, or even God, brighter than the sun, may appear to rise in the west at night. This may seem to suggest what was recorded was an angel and not the sun. However, the brilliant phoenix flew to the sun to move it when there was a sun miracle. Thus this may be the sun ascending from the west to the east. Nevertheless, there is no turning back when we see the bright light of God.

Acts 26:13 "At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me."

Genesis 8:4 "And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat."

Hebrews 8:5 "Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount."

This 17th day of the 7th month may be a picture of Jesus' birth, September 15, 3307 BC. Thus Noah's flood may be a pattern of Jesus' birth.

Limited Faith that God is Limited to Stopping the Earth is Wrong

If the earth stopped or reversed its rotation, the problems are immense. If you stop the earth from rotating, you must then start it rotating again. If the earth slowed in its rotation one minute in a 24 hour period, the oceans at the equator would drop 800 feet. If the earth stopped rotating, dry land would ring the equator. If the earth stopped rotating for 24 hours there would be 24 hours of missing time. If the sun revolved around the earth 360° there would again be 24 hours of missing time. If the sun moved halfway around the earth in a series of 4 sun miracles there would be no net missing time. No evidence left.

The word for - So the sun stood still in the "midst" of heaven - is literally half, "from the half of heaven". Of the 126 times it is used in the Bible, 108 times it is translated as "half" and 8 times as "midst". If you are counting on the stars of heaven as your guide, the only way the sun can stand still from the half of heaven is if the sun revolved around the earth to the other half of heaven. That night Israel would see stars from the other half of heaven.

Greater Faith that God Moved the Sun is Right

If the sun moved not 360° but 180° the seasons would change. Earth would flow into a reverse orbit of the sun and must shift on its axis or the sun must move up or down as well as moving the 180° to keep in the same season, unless on the vernal or autumn equinox. Very likely the sun moved up or down after moving the 180° and the orbits of the planets tilted with the sun and no pole shift was necessary. Simply, the sun must move to the path of the zodiac. If the sun moved 180° from Capricornus to Gemini, the sun must move up to Gemini, yet the height of the sun on earth would appear as if it was in Capricornus. Therefore, the sun must move six signs to the exact sixth zodiac sign and earth would keep in the same season.

The path of the zodiac would be the same only halfway removed and moving in reverse. Therefore, earth would not see any more or less stars, only a summer sky in winter. The earth would not need to shift on its axis to keep in the same season. This works so perfectly and exactly I am surprised no one has discovered the perfectness of earth in a reverse orbit.

If the sun moved 180° west the night of February 16, 1241 BC to rise suddenly in the east in the morning of February 17, 1241 BC the sun must move down to keep the same inclination to earth. Then earth would keep in the same season. The sun may simply keep its inclination to earth as it travelled around earth. Perhaps the sun moved along the exact same zodiac path, only in reverse. We can be sure the sun's inclination to earth was kept. Orbital Variations and Insolation Database (search and read up on it under "orbital variations" or "insolation database") show the seasons and the sun's intensity did not change. This model leaves no evidence. If the sun moved up or down after moving 180° to keep earth in the same season, there would be no affect on the earth.

Earth must orbit the same distance from the sun in the same elliptical orbit it would have. Earth must be let to rotate exactly as it would have. Thus earth's orbit must have been carefully managed to leave no biological trace.

Chinese records of the Exodus

The following record was not a record of a solar eclipse:

"From yi-mao (day 52) to early next morning there was fog, then three flames ate the sun, big stars were seen."
Heji 11506

A total solar eclipse passed through Yin March 4, 1250 BC on day 53 not day 52. The total solar eclipse June 5, 1302 BC, was the following day, Day 53 not day 52. March 3, 1307 BC was the new moon and day 53 of cycle 60 in China. Possibly there was a sun miracle to begin what was to be the passover month in a year ending 07, so be even 100's to Jesus' birth. Thus a sun miracle in 1307 BC would be 1300 years to Jesus' birth in 7 BC. March 3, 1307 BC could match the month and year of the birth of John the Baptist six months before Jesus' birth, September 12, 7 BC.

Nevertheless, if not a sun miracle, then this may be a record of a solar eclipse.

Wending's first year must be 1252 BC. Often there was a new emperor in China when there was a sun miracle.

A good book on the period of 1250 BC in the Middle East is: 1177 BC, The year civilization collapsed, a telling story of famine, earthquake, invasions of the Sea Peoples, cutting off of trade routes these civilizations depended on. So severe it took centuries to recover. From the Exodus to Joshua's entry into the Promised Land, nowhere was there food or safety in the Middle East.

The date 1177 BC actually equals 1253 BC because Egyptian dates must be correced 76 years further back. There was a great earthquake about that time at Pylos. Earthquakes are often connected to sun miracles in China, such as in 230 BC when the sun rose in the west to the meridian. Often the earth shook in a sun miracle.

Claude Schaeffer, "the original excavator of Ugarit, thought an earthquake caused the final destruction of the city." "Current thinking puts the date of this earthquake at 1250 BC."

Famine is recorded in the Middle East in this 1260 BC. Thus, there was famine all around the Israelites during the forty years in the wilderness.

"The year was 1177 BC. It was the eighth year of Pharaoh Ramses III's reign" the Sea Peoples came. Thus, 1177 BC is 1252 BC.

Thus Egypt collapsed after the ten plagues of the Exodus in 1281 BC, and further collapsed after this battle with the Sea Peoples 28 years later.

Wending's 12th year was king Wan's dream, king Wan's first year February 15, 1240 BC. Thus, Wending's first year may have started in 1252 BC, perhaps with a sun miracle. And this be the omen for a new emperor, Wending.

There was a total solar eclipse in China March 4, 1250 BC. But this was two years after Wending became emperor.

From Xueshun Liu:
"As for the inscription that appears in the picture below, you cited two translations. The first one has translated the first four characters as "On the 7th day of the month, a chi-szu day (last quarter moon)..." The second one translates those characters as "At the time period from the night of the seventh day jisi (day 6) ..." It appears that the second translation is correct because of two reasons. First, there is no character yue, 'month' among those four characters. If there is no yue, how could one be sure it was the seventh day of the month? The phrase "seventh day" only means day jisi was the seventh day from whichever day they started counting. Second, if jisi indeed is the seventh day of the month, it should be the first quarter of the month. That's the principle of Chinese lunar calendar.
Therefore, the translation "the 7th day of the month (last quarter moon)" is wrong. Without more information from the inscription, it is not possible to determine to which quarter of the moon day jisi belong.
Now, let's turn to eclipses. First, "Three flames ate (time word) the sun, and a great star was seen" in your email quoted below and "The first record of a solar prominence has been found in a tortoise shell inscription, which describes "three suddenly bursting fires eating a chunk of the sun", which appears on the web site http://www.china.org.cn/e-gudai/6.htm cited in your email yesterday, refer to the same inscription. It is not considered a record of solar eclipse by experts in early Chinese astronomy and early Chinese history.
When I was a Ph.D student in China and in UBC, my advisors include scholars at Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, which is the most prestigious academic institution in China, Prof. Keightley at UC Berkeley, Prof. Takashima at UBC, and Prof. Pankenier at Lehigh University. I also have friends at Chinese Academy of Sciences. All these scholars do not think that inscription is a record of eclipse."

March 3, 1307 BC, the new moon, was on day 53 of cycle 60, and in the time of the making oracle bones to divine. If this was a sun miracle, the time of the new moon would work best because the moon is not mentioned. 1307 BC was 1300 years before Jesus' birth in 7 BC. Thus, this record may not be a solar eclipse, but, as above, may describe a sun miracle. The sun not rising, and so being hungary they did not eat till the sun rose after three days, whereupon they sacrificed. This could be a sun miracle like the three days of darkness in Egypt. The sun 180° from noon Israel would stand at or before the dawning position of the sun in the east in China. Thus, likewise, the new moon, February 14, 1281 BC = day 53 of cycle 60. Pharaoh hardened his heart because there was respite, more time.

This could be a month and a half from the new moon Febrary 14 or a half a month from the new moon March 15 to the Exodus March 30, 1281 BC.

Exodus 10:27 "But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let them go."

March 15, 1281 BC could be the ninth plague of darkness two weeks before the passover. But would not be day 53 of cycle 60.

Job 9:7 "Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars."

1307 BC is 26 years before the Exodus in 1281 BC. Thus 101 X 13 = 1313 years. 1281 BC + 33 AD Jesus' crucifixion = 1313 years. 1307 BC is 2 X 13 years further back.

Luke 2:42 "And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast."

Thus the 13 or 12 years of Jesus' life may be the point of the symbol of years 13 in sun miracles. Jesus lived 38 and a half years. 13 + 13 + 12.5 = 38.5 years.

My grandfather believed we live seven year ages. Then 5 X 7 = 35. Jesus would be turning 35 in September 29 AD when he spoke from Isaiah 61 to fulfill the 50th year jubile. Then three and a half years of Jesus' ministry to April 3, 33 AD. Then Jesus be taken up to Heaven the new moon, Saturday, May 16, 33 AD.

If this was a sun miracle on the Passover X100 years before Jesus' crucifixion, this could be a sun miracle on the full moon in 1268 BC, = 1300 years before Jesus' sacrifice in 33 AD, There is no year zero. February 5, 1268 BC was the full moon on day 52 of cycle 60. Thus a sun miracle may have been what was recorded and not a solar eclipse.

Wu Yi became emperor about 1283 BC. He moved his capital in his third year, the year of the Exodus. He again moved his capital in his 15th year, 1268 BC. Thus this oracle bone record may not be of a naturally occuring eclipse, but of a sun miracle. When Jesus was crucified there was darkness recorded for three hours. A solar eclipse only lasts 7 minutes at most. Thus, either the sun was moved around the earth at the speed of light - time stopped on the sun and no sunlight. Or, the sun was covered shadowing the earth. Thus a similar sun miracle to the one at Jesus' crucifixion may have taken place 1300 years earlier, in 1268 BC to point to Jesus.

Divined on day wuxu [35]: "The shape of hui (comet) has changed; perhaps the darkness will go away. (Verification:) It was a clear day." [Heji, 32915]

If the three days of darkness was just before the Passover and the Exodus, then it may have been day 35 of cycle 60, Wednesday, March 28, 1281 BC. Thus the Israelites chose a lamb the 10th day, Sunday, March 25, 1281 BC and kept it in their houses to the 14th day, March 30, 1281 BC when they sacrificed the lamb for the Passover. There may have been a sun miracle six months earlier on what would be Yom Kippur the tenth day of the seventh month September 30, 1282 BC. Or the sun moved to the other side of earth in the three days of darkness the new moon March 15, 1281 BC. 187 days from the first day of the first month is the 10th day of the seventh month.

There are a few other possibilities. The sun may move to the other side of earth and earth flow into a reverse orbit of the sun, then March 28, 1281 BC, the sun move back and earth flow into the normal orbit of the sun.

However, the three days of darkness may have been on the new moon, March 15, 1281 BC.

The sun may move at the crossing of the Reed/Red Sea for a long night, about April 5, 1281 BC, and/or at the battle of Amalek for a long day, Exodus 17, in May 1281 BC.

Joshua 24:7 "And when they cried unto the LORD, he put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them, and covered them; and your eyes have seen what I have done in Egypt: and ye dwelt in the wilderness a long season."

More likely the sun moved more than 3 X 360° for three days of darkness to the other side of earth at the new moon March 15, 1281 BC. Thus there would be no moonlight in the three days of darkness. Then the sun may have moved back 187 days later at the raising up of the tabernacle on the 10th day of the seventh month, September 20, 1281 BC.

Exodus 10:28 "And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou shalt die.
10:29 And Moses said, Thou hast spoken well, I will see thy face again no more."

Thus day wuxu 35, March 26, 1281 BC, may be the three days of darkness and the four days the Israelites were to take a lamb into their dwellings where they had light.

If the Exodus was Friday, March 30, 1281 BC, then the new moon was March 13, 1281 BC. The beginning of the previous lunar month may have been the three days of darkness, February 14, 1281 BC, day 52 of cycle 60 in China. This was 45 days before the Exodus on March 30, 1281 BC. The sun may move about 180 days again. Then also, during a reverse orbit, perhaps the sun may move 90 days again and 45 days again. Thus February 14, 1281 BC. March 30, 1281 BC, May 15, 1281 BC at the beginning of the third month just after the long sunset of Moses:

Exodus 19:1 "In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai.
19:2 For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount."

"Inquiry made on day ren-ji (49th day of cycle): Will the sun have zhi on day jia-yin." (51st day or two days later)
Heji 33703

The Chinese may have tried to predict the return of the sun about 180 days later, thus on about the same day of 60.

"The divination was on day jen-tzu [49]. There was a chih of the sun on day chia-yin [51]"
(Yi-ts'un, 384)

Likewise, the Chinese may have tried to predict the return of the sun about 180 days after the first sun miracle. This may have been February 13, 1281 BC. The sun may revolve around the earth seven times eastward if the sun blazed, chih, from the east westward 180° in the first three times, then on the fourth time returned revolving around the sun 3 + 4 = 7 X 180°. The sun suddenly rising in the east like Phaethon. Thus this model can explain the Chinese reckoning and no net missing time. Thus eclipse paths were the same before and after the sun miracles as we would project them to be from today.

If the day 7 was a chia-tzu day, last quarter moon, this could be a sun miracle on the day the children of Israel crossed the Red Sea / Reed Sea, perhaps seven days after the Exodus. Thus perhaps the reason earth was described as being upsidedown.html and the hours disordered after the plagues and devastation ending in the Exodus out of Egypt, because earth was in a reverse orbit.

The tides rise and fall only two feet at the north end of the Red Sea because the pull of the Moon is only east - west. The Israelites crossed the Reed Sea, not the Red Sea anyway.

The date of Pharaoh Mernaptah's death is placed at about May 2, 1203 BC according to Wikipedia. If this German historian dated the sothis cycle to 1280 BC, then Merneptah's death in 1203 BC would be 80 years later. The calendar would then back up 20 days, 20 X 4 = 80. Then the date of May 2, 1203 BC, III Shemu 5, would actually be May 20, 1281 BC. Sunday May 20, 1281 BC was the day of Pentecost. This would be written I Shemu 13 rather than II Shemu 13. Thus Merneptah may have died one month earlier April 1, 1281 BC instead of May 2. Counting July 1 as the 30th day of the 4th month, May 2, may be the 5th day of the 3rd month. However, counting 3 months back from July 1 is April 1. And counting forward 5 days is April 5. Thus Pharaoh Merneptah died not on May 2, but about April 5, and that in 1281 BC.

If the crossing of the Red Sea was later this would give the Israelites a month to march 350 miles to Aqaba from Ramesses. However, the crossing of the Red/Reed/ Sea must have been before the fifteenth of the second month. See Exodus 16:

Exodus 16:1 "And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt."

This must be May 1, 1281 BC. May 2, 1203 BC was date of Pharaoh Merneptah's death given by a German Egyptologist. Merneptah died in 1281 BC, perhaps in May.

This means they must have crossed the Red Sea in less than one month, that is, before the fifteenth day of the second month, April 27, 1281 BC. May 2, 1203 BC is the 10th day of the lunar month. April 24, 1281 BC is also the tenth day of the lunar month.

If May 2 is the fixed Egyptian date and not the moving sothis date, this May 2, 1281 BC would be day 10 of cycle 60 in China when a solar or lunar eclipse was recorded in the Shang dynasty. The bible does not state pharaoh drowned in the Red/Reed Sea. Thus Merneptah may have died a month after the Exodus and his death be from natural causes. Nevertheless, probably Pharaoh was the first one in the Red / Reed Sea.

"Divined on day guiyou [10]: The sun was eclipsed in the evening; it will be favourable. Divined on day guiyou [10]: The sun or moon was eclipsed in the evening; it will be unfavourable."
Heji, 33694

"Divined on day guiyou [10]: The sun was eclipsed in the evening; we should report it to ancestor Shang Jia."
Heji, 33695

Day 10 of cycle 60 could be the full moon, the passover, March 20, 1307 BC or lunar day 17 of the 7th month = September 16, 1307 BC. = Omen of Jesus' birth lunar day 17 of the 7th month, September 12, 7 BC. Thus 1307 BC be 1300 years, to the day, before Jesus' birth in 7 BC. God moving the sun may be recorded as a solar eclipse in China on an oracle bone. Thus the sun at noon in Israel is at sunset in China. Thus the full moon darkened at sunset in China, or the sun darkened at sunset in China. The sun darkened when Jesus was on the cross at noon on the passover in Israel = the sun darkened at sunset in China. Perhaps this was the same sun miracle on the passover March 20, 1307 BC.

This solar eclipse of May 26, 1217 BC is supposed to be the earliest recorded solar eclipse. As you see above a solar eclipse was recorded on day 10 of cycle 60 as this May 26, 1217 BC is. However, as you can see the solar eclipse was barely if hardly visible in China. The record is of an evening solar eclipse. Thus there is a possibility the solar eclipse was seen in China. Nevertheless, there are no missing days in the Chinese count of 60 before or after Joshua's long day. Thus Joshua's long day could not be uncovered by the Chinese count of 60.

Moreover, this eclipse record on an oracle bone on a day 10 of cycle 60 gives no year. So the May 26, 1217 BC match is speculative. There are some solar eclipse records in Egypt before 1281 BC that match the correct time scale. There are no missing days there either. So uncovering Joshua's long day by this method does not work.

The direct evidence for Joshua's long day is king Wan's dream, half an orbit, six months after, in February 15, 1240 BC in king Wan's first year = 1240 BC because in his 35th year he recorded a lunar eclipse on day 13 of cycle 60, September 23, 1205 BC. The sun moved 180° back in king Wan's dream after a year of a reverse orbit. The sun may move back at the half orbit point and earth flow out of the reverse orbit. Thus Joshua's long day at the half orbit point. The sun rose suddenly in the east in Judges 8:13 the next day and earth flowed back into a reverse orbit till February 15, 1240 BC when the sun moved back.

China hardly could observe the solar eclipse, on day 10 of cycle 60, of May 26, 1217 BC. Then this solar eclipse record on an oracle bone on day 10 of cycle 60, if not a solar eclipse must be a record of a sun miracle.

The noon sun on the passover in Israel be darkened as in the three hours of darkness when Jesus was on the cross, a type of Christ's coming, would be a setting, evening sun, in China. Such as day 10 of cycle 60 March 19, 1204 BC.

You can hardly see any part of China in this solar eclipse map:





The solar eclipse of March 4, 1250 BC Eclipse on day 53 of cycle 60 was total at the capitol of China. Thus the claim the earliest solar eclipse record was May 26, 1217 BC after Joshua's long day is in error for this eclipse was not visible in China. Thus the solar eclipse of March 4, 1250 BC is verified here, and predates Joshua's long day of August 24, 1241 BC.

Likely, the crossing of the Reed Sea was between April 1 and April 5, 1281 BC. Moving the date of the end of the sothis cycle 40 years more recent from 1321 BC to 1281 BC could also move this May 2, 1205 BC date a month earlier to April 1, 1281 BC on day 38 of cycle 60 in China with Israel at the Bitter Lake by the Suez Canal on the third day. The May 2 date then being one complete month out. The Egyptian dates are all one complete month out, such as August 8 really was September 7.

If counting back from the appearing of Sirius at 4 AM July 17; then 16 days + 3 X 30 - 5 = 102 days back = April 5, 1281 BC. Thus the date of Pharaoh Merneptah's death could be at the crossing of the Red Sea/Reed Sea a few days after the Exodus Friday, March 30, 1281 BC. Thus Pharaoh may have drowned in the Red Sea/Reed Sea. Moreover, the date 3.5 may equal April 7, 1281 BC the seventh day of the seven days of unleavened bread. Thus the crossing of the Red/Reed Sea may have been at the end of the seven days of the Passover.

The date in the book: Chronologie des Pharaonischen Ägypten, Mainz, (1997), pp.190, beside pharaoh Merneptah was given 3.5 that was interpreted as May 2, 1203 BC. However, 3.5 = III Shemu 5 in 1281 BC was May 21. In the traditional date of the new sothis cycle in 1320 BC and Merneptah's death in 1203 BC. The sothis end was 1281 BC. Thus from 1320 BC to 1203 BC = 117 years / 4 years a day = 30 days more back, less 10 days in the difference of 1320 BC and 1281 BC. The May 2, 1203 BC date corected 20 days ahead to May 21, 1281 BC. However, Pharaoh's death in April 6, 1281 BC appears to be the best estimation.

3.5 = April 16 + 10 (10 days from the sothis end in 1281 BC rather than in 1320 BC. 1320 BC - 1281 BC = 40 years/4 days a year = 10 days. + 5 days of 3.5 = III Shemu 5) = April 16 + 10 + 5 = May 2, 1203 BC. The correct date of Merneptah's death appears to be the day after Sunday, May 20, 1281 BC. A rounding error could place the death of Pharaoh Merneptah May 19, 1281 BC both the third month of Shemu and the fifth Egyptian day both of the sothis date and the lunar date.

May 20, 1281 BC was the day of Pentecost, 50th day from the Passover March 31, 1281 BC. The 40th day of the Passover March 21, 1280 BC would be May 2, 1280 BC. Perhaps Merneptah died one year earlier, May 2, 1281 BC.

3.5 may equal 3 X 30 day months back. Then perhaps back 16 days from July 16 to June 30, then 3 X 30 days back to April 1, then 5 days ahead to April 5, 1281 BC when the Children of Israel would have crossed the Red/Reed Sea and Pharaoh and his horse drown when the parted waters returned.

Then the May 2 date may be from the new sothis cycle in 1281 BC rather than 1320 BC. Then the Egyptian calendar would have backed up 19 days = 76 years divided by 4 = 19 days. Then back from new years July 16, 30 days to June 16, 30 days to May 16, back the 19 days to April 26 and forward the 5 days to May 2. Thus May 2, 1203 BC is the wrong date for Pharaoh Merneptah's death and April 5, 1281 BC may be the right date for Pharaoh Merneptah's death.

The Egyptian Sothis cycle of 1460 years end was 1281 BC not 1320 BC. Thus, Merneptah's death in III Shemu 5 was not May 2, 1203 BC but May 20, 1281 BC. You can see the same 10 days = 40 years, in the middle of this pdf file, correcting the date of year 44 of Pharaoh Amasis.





Exodus 15:8 "And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floodsH5140 stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea."

"floods" H5140 usually refers to running water. Thus, the Children of Israel may have crossed an eastern most fork of the Nile River.

Exodus 17:5 "And the LORD said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go."

Psalm 66:6 "He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him."

This sea may be the eastern most fork of the Nile River by the Suez Canal, by the Bitter Lakes, the reed sea where reeds grow, rather than the Jordan River. Thus the reference to the flood of the river.

This river may also refer to the crossing of the Children of Israel, as it did to the plagues of the Egyptians. Thus, again the Children of Israel may have crossed an eastern most fork of the Nile River.

Isaiah 11:15 "And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod. "

The crossing of the Nile River in Israel's return, like the Reed Sea = fresh water, is connected to Moses' parting of the sea. Moses must have parted the eastern most fork of the Nile = fresh water and not the Red Sea.

Here also In Isaiah 11:15 the Nile river is dried up inorder for the Children of Israel to cross.

A search on crossing of the Red Sea evidence turns up many pages alleging the crossing of the Children of Israel was in Aqaba with proof of many bones of horses and chariots. However, all of this is a spoof, and the claims are widely circulated fiction. See Snopes.

The Sothis cycle began again in 1281 BC not 1320 BC, a 40 year difference;

year 44 of Amasis, the first date (II Shemu 13) is lunar and the second
(I Shemu 15) is civil and as the civil date fell on 21 September 558 BC
the lunar date fell on 9 (= 21 –12) September 558 BCE
which was a full moon day according to astronomy, not 1st invisibility "shining ones"!
41 years later the 1st invisibility of the moon was on II Shemu 13
September 9 should move 10 days later in the month. 201 days – 191 days = 10 days.
40 years/4 = 10 days. If from IV Shemu 30 July 17, 1281 BC + 5 days.
= September 19, 517 BC which was the 1st disappearance of the moon
when Cambyses conquered Egypt. Thus was 1st invisibility “shining ones”.

Add from July 17 backwards:
1281 BC – 517 BC = 764, 764 /4 =191 days
5 + 17 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 28 + 29 = 201; 201 – 191 = 10 days.
January 2 = 191 days = IV Shemu 30
December 3 = III Shemu 30
November 3 = II Shemu 30
October 4 = 1 Shemu 30
September 4 = 1 Shemu 1
September 19 = 1 Shemu 15; October 17 = II Shemu 13

Thus Pharaoh Merneptah must have died May 20, 1281 BC, or the fifth day from three months back of July 1 = April 5, 1205 BC = three days journey to the Reed Sea where Pharaoh and his army perished. This year of the Exodus be at the end of the 1460 year sothis cycle, rather than May 2, 1203 BC.

Sunday, May 20, 1281 BC was also the day of Pentecost, the 50th day from Sunday, April 1, 1281 BC. The 50th day from Jesus' resurrection Sunday April 5, 33 AD was Sunday, May 24, 33 AD = the giving of the Holy Ghost in Pentecost. Thus perhaps there was a sun miracle on the first day of the lunar month May 16, 1281 BC, 45 days after April 1, 1281 BC, in the third month when Moses' hands were held up when the sun was setting and Joshua fought Amalek and the Egyptians deposed and executed the pharaoh Merneptah 5 days later because of the omen of a long sunset.

I gave a talk on calendars The Time Keepers to the local astronomy group, ocrasc.ca, September 2016 at the Okanagan College. My point in all of it was the Egyptian Sothis Calendar began in 2737 BC, not 2777 BC.

Amasis pharaoh of Egypt died in 517 BC when Cambyses of Persia conquered Egypt. This was the date I Shemu 15, September 19, 517 BC on the day "shining ones" on the last visibiility of the moon. Then if Amasis died on I Shemu 15 this date may been doubly reinforced as I Shemu 15 from April 1, 1281 BC when the Egyptians drowned in the Reed/Red Sea. A long night of travel while the sun revolved around the earth Friday, March 30, 1281 BC while the pillar of light led them, could take the Israelites the 50 miles to the Reed Sea at today's Suez Canal by April 1, 1281 BC.

"(Preface:) On day gengzi [37]: (Charge:) we should perform an yi-sacrifice to the Bird Star (Niao xing). (Postface:) 7th month." [Heji, 11500]

"(Preface):)Crack-making on day jihai [36], in the evening: (Charge:) on day geng [37], we should perform a bi-sacrifice to the [Northern] Dipper (dou); (Verification:) It rained continuously. Crack making on the evening of day gengzi [37]: we should perform a bi-sacrifice to the [Northern] Dipper (dou) on day xin [38]..." Heji, 21350

The Chinese Yin Calendar began in September. Thus the seventh month would be this day 38, Sunday, April 1, 1281 BC perhaps the time the Israelites crossed the Reed Sea = fresh water sea where reeds grow, (Red Sea).

Psalm 66:6 "He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him."

Thus the eastern most fork of the Nile River was the flood the Israelites passed through, not the Red Sea.

God may have moved the sun to give the Israelites time to cross. Perhaps the sun rose in the west and set in the east Saturday, March 31, 1281 BC. Then after the children of Israel had crossed the Reed/Red Sea the sun may have suddenly and brilliantly rose in the east Sunday April 1, 1281 BC. Then there may have been the same pattern of sun miracles at the Exodus as at Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection. The day Gengzi 37 was also celebrated on the new moon a day of brightness April 17, 1170 BC, when the vassels confirmed the kingdom to emperor Wu.

Thus perhaps the sun rose in the west after the Israelites crossed the Reed Sea on the third day from the Exodus April 29, 1281 BC. Jesus' resurrection was Sunday, April 5, 33 AD. Then the sun may have risen in the east suddenly and brightly as at Jesus' resurrection Sunday April 1, 1281 BC on day 38 of 60 Gengzi. Then this day 37 April 17, 1170 BC may have been a day when the sun rose suddenly and brightly in the east also and was taken as an omen to submit to emperor Wu who received the Mandate of Heaven that day. At the Exodus the Big Dipper, dou, would point strait up at midnight Saturday, March 31, 1281 BC perhaps when the sun rose in the west and set in the east. Then earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun.

Then the sun ascended suddenly in the east and the following night the Big Dipper pointed strait down in the north at midnight, which it never does in a normal orbit. 180 days earlier, half an orbit earlier, October 3, 1282 BC the sun may have moved to the other side of the earth, also on a day 37. Thus day 37, gengzi, would become a superstitious day and thus the pattern of sun miracles at Jesus' crucifixion be repeated.

Likewise the year 451 BC from 1320 BC (The Egyptian Sothis ended 1281 BC not 1320 BC) does not equal the 14th year of Xerxes. Xerxes began his reign in 477 BC. His 14th year would be 464 BC.

Esther 1:3 "In the third year of his reign, he made a feast unto all his princes and his servants; the power of Persia and Media, the nobles and princes of the provinces, being before him:
1:4 When he shewed the riches of his glorious kingdom and the honour of his excellent majesty many days, even an hundred and fourscore days.
1:5 And when these days were expired, the king made a feast unto all the people that were present in Shushan the palace, both unto great and small, seven days, in the court of the garden of the king's palace;"

"In his first year, of King Yuen, which was ping-yin (3rd of cycle 60, 474 BC = Xerxes' 3rd year from 477 BC), the duke Ting of Tsin died."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.166.

When there was a sun miracle the Chinese took it as an omen to change emperors, as we see here. A fall to spring half orbit is 180 days. A half orbit from spring to fall is 187 days. The year matches exactly to 474 BC.

The next sun miracle appears about the 14th year of Xerxes.

Thus his 14th year should be 465 BC. Thus counting from the new sothis cycle from 1281 BC to 465 BC = 816 years. 816 / 4 = 204 days the calendar has backed up. 204 / 30 = 6.8 .8 X 30 = 24. This equals the 25th of Phamenoth 204 days back from July 16. Thus, there could have been a sun miracle on the 13th of Adar in Esther on the Egyptian new year and full moon December 28, 465 BC. The significanse of this date in the 14th year of Xerxes not the 12th year, be the day of Purim. See harvardhouse.com, Biblical Dates.

February 20, 466 BC was Friday. This was a full moon and the 13th day of the lunar month of Adar = 12th month, and the 12th year of Xerxes.

Esther 9:17 "On the thirteenth day of the month Adar, and on the fourteenth day of the same, they rested and made it a day of feasting and gladness."

Thus the 13th day and the 14th day be the sabbath, the seventh day of the week when they rested.

Thus there was a sun miracle on Purim!

This 25th of Phamenoth equals 6 months 25 days till July 16 when Sirius first appears at 4 AM = Egyptian new year backed up to December 25, 465 BC. Thus this record from the new moon December 1, 1834 BC in Egypt, uses the same calendar to get an exact date: "For the fixing in time of the {Egyptian Middle Kingdom} and the periods preceding it, the key date is the seventh year of the reign of King Sesostris III of the Twelfth Dynasty. In this year, a helical rising of the star Sothis (our Sirius) was recorded on 16. VIII of the 365-day civil calendar, a fact which, thanks to the regular displacement of this calendar, in relation to the true astronomical year, allows the year in question to be placed between 1876 and 1864 BC, with every probability favoring 1872 BC."

Or counting forward the 25th of Phamenoth would also be this December 25, 465 BC when counting the last month of July, 16 days to the appearing of Sirius.

The label of a wine bottle wrongly dated to 1872 BC, the new moon 225 days to July 16 = December 1. 76 years further back to correct the Egyptian sothis calendar, 1872 BC + 76 years = 1948 BC. December 1, 1948 BC was this new moon, 225 days before July 16.

The Merneptah Stele:

The princes are prostrate, saying, "Peace!"
Not one is raising his head among the Nine Bows.
Now that Tehenu (Libya) has come to ruin,
Hatti is pacified;
The Canaan has been plundered into every sort of woe:
Ashkelon has been overcome;
Gezer has been captured;
Yano'am is made non-existent.
Israel is laid waste and his seed is not;
Hurru is become a widow because of Egypt.

This stele was in Merneptah's fifth year, 1286 BC. Israelites were already in the land.

Merneptah may have killed the Israelites in southern Israel. Then there was Israelites in northern Israel when Joshua conquered southern Israel. Thus, the long day of Joshua 10:12 may have been the same long day of victory in Judges 4,5,6,7,8.

Genesis 15:16 "But in the fourth (fortieth) generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full."

Hebrews 3:16 "For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses."

Thus the Hebrews were already in Israel as promised in the 40th generation, 1000 years after the Sojourn in Egypt in 2307 BC. 40 X 25 years to a generation = 1000 years.

Thus there were no Israelites in southern Israel when Joshua invaded because Pharaoh Merneptah had destroyed them 45 years before Joshua's conquest in southern Israel according to Joshua 10.

The book of Judges gives the picture of Israelites already in northern Israel when Joshua began to conquer southern Israel. Thus the battles of Debra and Barak in Judges 4, 5; and the battle of Gideon in Judges 6, 7, 8; were at the same time as Joshua's long day in Joshua 10:12.

Evidence for the Record of the March 4, 1250 BC Eclipse on day 53 of cycle 60:





See the eclipse path. From Five Millennium of Solar Eclipses, NASA. The star in the eclipse path is about where Yin was. Thus this was a total eclipse in that location as the graph states. This may make the solar eclipse the earliest dateable solar eclipse. The argument that no record of a solar eclipse has been found to date before Joshua's Long Day is defeated. There was a new moon on Bingshen day 53 in Wu's first year as emperor. Fourth month, May 19, 1173 BC was the new moon on day 53. This would be Wu's thirteenth year, first year as emperor, when the kingdom became established. For the Chinese to consider day 53 Bingshen a superstitious day, there must have been a total solar eclipse within recent memory on that date. King Wan would have taken note of it.

This and the first year 1251 BC when Wending replaced Wu Yi and the solar eclipse in Wending's first year suggest the Chinese recorded the solar eclipse on day 53, March 4, 1250 BC. Then the argument that no interfering event such as Joshua's Long Day can be detected without an earlier solar eclipse date is defeated. Thus, knowing that eclipse paths were where we would expect them to be, even projecting to before Joshua's long day, this model is necessary and explains how there can be long days yet no missing time. This explains how the solar system can be put back in place as if nothing happened.

From the same location a total eclipse is not seen again for 375 years.

The Red Sea crossing and the sun setting while Moses' hands are held up.

Exodus 14:27 "And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea."

Exodus 15:12 "Thou stretchedst outH5186 thy right hand,H3225 the earthH776 swallowedH1104 them."

The word for right hand, right side = H3225 = yamiyn= south. Thus Moses may have witnessed the sun suddenly rise in the east to the noon position = south = towards the right hand, whereupon, the Reed/Red Sea drowned the Egyptians.

the Passover must be from Friday. Perhaps there was on hour of darkness at noon Friday when the Passover lamb must be killed. Then the next day Saturday the sun may rise in the west and set in the east. Whereupon the children of Israel crossed the Reed/Red Sea Saturday. Then the sun may rise suddenly in the east Sunday April 1, 1281 BC after the children of Israel had crossed.

Before the third month, would be the when Joshua fought Amalek:

There may have been another sun miracle in 1281 BC, when Moses held up his hands at sunset. Earth cannot keep flowing into and out of reverse orbits before the half orbit point. Then perhaps if there was a sun miracle at the Red Sea, the sun revolved 360° around the earth and earth's orbit was not changed till Joshua's battle with Amalek.

Exodus 17:1 "And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the commandment of the LORD, and pitchedH2583 in Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink."

H2583 ch-ana-h, khaw-naw':
A primitive root (compare H2603); properly to incline; by implication to decline (of the slanting rays of evening); specifically to pitch a tent; generally to encamp (for abode or siege): - abide (in tents), camp, dwell, encamp, grow to an end, lie, pitch (tent), rest in tent.

This battle must have been before the third month, perhaps on the twenty-first of the second lunar month about May 3, 1281 BC. The first day of the third month must be Sunday, April 29, 1281 BC. This would be Pentecost, the 50th day from the Passover.

Exodus 17:12 "But Moses' hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun."

Then one year later the sun must return. The season of first ripe grapes is in the month of May/June in Israel. Thus, Joshua may have returned from spying out the land and bringing the cluster of grapes one year after Joshua's battle with Amalek:

Numbers 14:9 "Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defense H6738 is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not."

H6738, tse-l, tsale.
From H6751; shade, whether literally or figuratively: - defense, shade (-ow).

Thus Joshua may have expected the sun to return one year later, and God to give them an extended day at noon to conquer Palestine. May 3, 1281 BC was day 10 out of cycle 60. One year later, Saturday, April 27, 1280 BC was also day 10 of cycle 60. Then the Saturday before the Manna fell may have been the crossing of the Red Sea, Or April 27, 1281 BC was Joshua's battle against Amalek and one year later April 27, 1280 BC day 10 of 60 was the 40th day of the Passover when the spies returned and Joshua said, "Let us go up at once" and there was a sun miracle when the sun must return one year later that to the Chinese was like an eclipse.

Or the sun may have stood still for Moses and Joshua Saturday May 12, 1281 BC. When the sun returned one year later May 12, 1280 BC is day 25 of 60 and may be the day 25 when there was a zhi blemish in the sun.

"Divined on day wuzi [25]: (Charge:) The Sun has a blemish, this should perhaps be reported to the [Lord of the Yellow] River.
Heji 33699

Perhaps the sun returned the day after the day of Pentecost - the celebration of Harvest, May 12, 1280 BC. However, if the sun moved back at the battle of Rephidim at the beginning of the third month, May 17, 1281 BC, the sun may move to the other side of the earth the next day, May 18, 1281 BC and Joshua expected the sun to move back one year later on the full moon Saturday, May 18, 1280 BC. Thus a long day would take away the shadow/shade/defense of the Palestinians.

There is the possibility this next oracle bone is from the same reign of Wending. Thus the similar Heji numbers: Heji 11506 and Heji 11503b. Even they may both occupy a part of the same oracle bone or date from the same time and thus were found together. Perhaps Wending the successor of Wu Yi was afraid of Omens from Heaven that gave him the throne and inscribed this oracle bone the day after the total solar eclipse March 4, 1250 BC. On the day of the Exodus, day 37 of 60, - day 7 of the 10 day week - Friday, March 30, 1281 BC, there may have been an hour of darkness at noon Egypt time, like the hour of darkness when Jesus was on the cross and noon Friday April 3, 33 AD. Darkness at noon in Egypt would mean a sudden darkness at sunset in China.

This inscription is an example of the Chinese day starting in the evening after sunset which is important in correctly dating the lunar eclipse in king Wan's 35th year:

"At the time period from the night of the seventh day jisi (day 6) there was (a) big new star that was seen beside Huo Antares."
Heji 11503b

The full moon would be moving toward Antares on day 7 cycle 60 (37), March 30, 1281 BC. The Exodus, March 30, 1281 BC day 37 - could be counted as day 7 of the 10 day week. Thus this could describe a sun miracle on day 7 of the 10 day week. April 29, 1281 BC would be day 7 of cycle 60:

Exodus 17:12 "But Moses' hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun."

The last quarter moon ended on a Saturday May 12, 1281 BC. This may be the time of this battle Joshua fought against Amalek. Antares would rise in the east at the time the sun set in the west. Then at the time of sunset in Israel, Antares would be at midsky in China, the night half over and sunrise in six hours. Only the sun moved 180° east to stand still in the Egyptian western sky. Thus the sun did not rise in six hours on China. It rose in 18 hours. Then the Chinese sacrificed to Antares the Fire star when the sun finally rose.

See Mechanics problems in geodynamics oracle bones. - "Three flames ate the sun"

This May 3, 1281 BC, if this is an Egyptian fixed date of Merneptah's death to May 3 of any year, would be back from May 3, 144 days + 144 days + July 17 - the appearing of Sirius. Or simply 77 days back from July 16. Thus Sirius did not appear for the 77 days from May 3 to July 16. Perhaps Merneptah's death was not on the disappearing of Sirius May 3, 1281 BC but on a sun miracle perhaps at the crossing of the Red/Reed Sea a few days after the Exodus. Thus the Egyptian date of Pharaoh Merneptah's death in 3.5 should be 3 months back from July 1, is April 1. Then 5 days forward is April 5, 1281 BC.

"You ought to know that the rising of Sothis takes place on the 16th of the 8th month. Announce it to the priests of the town of Sekhem-Usertasen and of Anubis on the mountain and of Suchos. And have this letter filed in the temple records."

Again, back from July 1, 3 months is April 1. Forwar 5 days is April 5, 1281 BC = Pharaoh Merneptah's death. Thus the crossing of the eastern most fork of the Nile River by Suez 5 days after the Children of Israel left Ramses.

The first year of Emperor Wending

Wu Yi died in 1251 BC: "The king was hunting between the Ho and the Wei, when he was frightened to death by a great thunderstorm." in his 35th year.
The Chinese Classics III, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.138

Thunderstorms occur frequently in January in China. January 14, 1251 BC was the new moon and a kea-tsze day, day 1 of cycle 60. It was prophesied on a kea-tsze day when there was a sun miracle, omen:

"In his (Te-sin) 22nd year, in winter, he had great hunting along the Wei." "On the kea-tsze day, in the last month of Autumn, a red bird came to Fung..My ancestor, the recorder Ch'ow, divined once for Yu about hunting; and then he met with Kaou-yaou, - from an omen like that which has now occurred."

This sun miracle must be November 16, 1207 BC.

The date of the total solar eclipse in the first year of King Wending, March 4, 1250 BC, confirms the chronology given here. The February 15, 1240 BC date of the sun miracle of king Wan's dream was in Emperor Wending's 12th year. Thus Wending reigned from 1251 BC and his 12th year in 1240 BC. The emphasis of day 53 and an omen in emperor Wu's first year as emperor also on day 53.

March 4, 1250 BC is on day 53 Bingshen. The three days of darkness in the ninth plague of Egypt should be March 28, 1281 BC, just 3 days before the Exodus, Friday March 30, 1281 BC.

"In his (Wending) 11th year, (1241 BC) Ke-leih attacked the hordes of E-t-oo, and having taken their three great chiefs, came with them to court to report his victory. The king put Ke-leih to death."
The Chinese Classics III, The Bamboo Annals, P.138

This was the year of the sun miracle of the fall of Jericho and Joshua's long day. The sun miracle may have made Wending jealous of Ke-leih, so he put him to death.

Wending's 12th Year

King Wan's dream February 15, 1240 BC was when he was middle aged and in battle against King Wending. Then from Wending's 12th year 1240 BC would be king Wan's first year when phoenixes appeared on mount K'e half an orbit after Joshua's long day, August 24, 1241 BC.

"In Wending's 12th year, phoenixes collected on mount K'e." Note: This was the first year of king Wan.
The Chinese Classics. p.138.

Thus these phoenixes are the same as the phoenixes in king Wan's dream, February 15, 1240 BC.

Phoenixes may have been seen with the setting sun on China that stood still at noon for the battle of Merom. The Phoenix was the large fire bird angel that flew to the sun to carry it to the other side of earth. Thus king Wan may have had more light to fight the Shang dynasty that day. All because God made the day longer for Joshua to fight the battle of Merom that day.

"35th year of king Wen of Zhou, 1st month, day bingzi 13, during worship of the full moon the king announced, 'The many...eclipses are untimely, you should begin planning for the succession.'"
Yi Zhou shu. Xiao kai jie. ch.17





This must be the lunar eclipse visible just after sunset in China September 23, 1205 BC on day 13 of cycle 60 the first month beginning in September. The confusion may simply be this lunar eclipse was on day 13, day 13 of cycle 60. Lunar eclipses can only occur on day 15 of the lunar month. Thus, king Wan was claiming this lunar eclipse a sun and moon miracle, an omen for him to be emperor of China. Thus worship of the full moon would be on day 15, and a lunar eclipse cannot happen on day 13 of the Chinese lunar month. Lunar eclipses can only occur on lunar day 15 of the Chinese month. Thus it was thought by king Wan to be untimely because it was on day 13 when lunar eclipses are always on Chinese lunar day 15.

King Wan may have been right, and this was not a lunar eclipse, this was a sun miracle. At least there is a parallel to a lunar eclipse in 1205 BC and a lunar eclipse in 5 BC. The lunar eclipse record by Josephus on Friday, September 15, 5 BC appears to be the sun and moon moving back. King Wan believed sun miracles showed his appointment of Heaven to be emperor and start a new dynasty. This day 13 was of the 60 day cycle and not the lunar day.

Thus, the reason king Wan stated a lunar eclipse was untimely may have been he mistook day 13 of cycle 60 to be day 13 of the lunar month. Perhaps 13 was a superstitious number to the Chinese. This record of a lunar eclipse in September 23, 1205 BC was the 36th year, and not the 35th year, since Joshua conquered at the battle of Merom, February 15, 1240 BC, one year after the fall of Jericho, February 17, 1241 BC. Three times in Judges it states the land had rest 40 years - the same 40 years from Joshua's long day. In 1207 BC the day one of cycle 60 was on September 21, 1207 BC which was the 17th day of the seventh lunar month. Jesus may have been born on the 17th day of the seventh lunar month, September 13, 7 BC. So God's purpose for the sun miracle may have been to point to Jesus' birth.

Several recorded solar eclipses occurred on a full moon and thus were not solar eclipse. An example is the darkness associated with the assassination of Julius Caesar on the Ides of March, the full moon on the 15th lunar day:

"it was not only on account of our contest with them, but on account of all mankind in common, that we have taken vengeance on those who have been the authors of great injustice towards men, and of great wickedness towards the gods; for the sake of which we suppose it was that the sun turned away his light from us."
Josephus, The Antiquities of the Jews/Book XIV, chapter 12, verse 22.

The full moon on passover = the Ides of March, March 15 in 45 BC, is 77 years before Jesus' crucifixion. Thus, 38 years after 45 BC Jesus would be born. Jesus would live 38 years from 7 BC to 33 AD. Thus, a sun miracle on the Ides of March should point to Jesus' birth and life, and crucifixion.

Thus, if there was darkness at noon in Israel, 10 AM moon in Italy, this may foretell the darkness at noon, Friday, April 3, 33 AD, when Jesus was on the cross, and be this sign when Julius Caesar was murdered "The Ides of March are come but not passed". Julius Caesar began the year, then March 21, to be January 1, 45 BC = the new moon, the Kalends of January, by adding 81 days to the calendar.

A bright comet was recorded this 45 BC in the months after Julius Ceaeser's death. This was recorded during the games Octavian held in recognition of Julius after his death. The comet appeared bright for seven days. The comet appeared in the east just after sunset, and thus would be directly overhead at midnight in September. This was recorded in Roman coins from 44 BC. A type of the star of Jesus' birth. Thus, a bright comet overhead in September 38 years before Jesus' birth September 12, 7 BC. This comet must be similar to the star the wise men saw in the east 38 years later. Thus, the same 38 year period of Jesus' life.

There was a comet recorded as comet Halley in 12 BC. However, the days of cycle 60 match lunar dates for July - September of 5 BC. Herod inquired when the star appeared, two years previous. September 5 BC should be when the wise men came to Jerusalem and Bethlehem to worship Jesus, the King of the Jews. Comets only appear for a few months. Maybe Arcturus was the star they saw in September 12, 7 BC because the sun would be on the other side of earth when God moved the sun 180°. China had a new emperor in 7 BC. China often assassinated their emperor when there was a sun miracle because they thought it was a bad omen, and an omen for a new emperor.

Emperor Chengdi reigned from 33–7 B.C. and emperor Aidi from 7 BC to 1 BC. Thus, there must have been a celestial event in 7 BC when Jesus was born visible in China.

Many sun miracles happened on a year ending X45 BC = 38 years of Jesus' life from this 7 BC forward to 33 AD. Phoenixes appeared in King Ching's 18th year from 1163 BC = 1145 BC. Joseph was born 2345 BC to live 38 years to his father Jacob and brothers entering Egypt 2307 BC.

The sun miracle the 70th year of Yao from 2315 BC was 2245 BC. Solomon began his reign 1045 BC, four years before the 240 years of Exodus 1281 BC = 50 year jubile in 1041 BC from 1241 BC. There was a eclipse record that could be a sun miracle in China 647 BC = the year it rained gold. There was a mistaken solar eclipse in 645 BC that could have been a sun miracle. The 22d year of King Heen = cycle 50, from 367 BC = exactly 346 BC - should be year 12 of King Heen's reign, or year 11 of cycle 60, is given the sixty cycle numbe jin-yin = 39. Monday, February 12, 346 BC or Thursday April 13, 346 BC, was day 39 of cycle 60, and the full moon = the passover = darkness at noon in Israel just as there was darkness at noon when Jesus was on the cross. The year was 12 of cycle 60. The number 39 can only be a day of cycle 60. The reason to record this day = the passover, must be because of the omen of sudden darkness at sunset in China.

All these sun miracles point to Jesus.

Forty years from Joshua's long day:

These are the same forty years from Joshua's first year in 1241 BC:

Judges 3:11 "And the land had rest forty years. And Othniel the son of Kenaz died."

Judges 5:31 "So let all thine enemies perish, O LORD: but let them that love him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might. And the land had rest forty years."

Judges 8:28 "Thus was Midian subdued before the children of Israel, so that they lifted up their heads no more. And the country was in quietness forty years in the days of Gideon."

1 Samuel 4:18 "And it came to pass, when he made mention of the ark of God, that he fell from off the seat backward by the side of the gate, and his neck brake, and he died: for he was an old man, and heavy. And he had judged Israel forty years."

1 Samuel 7:2 "And it came to pass, while the ark abode in Kirjathjearim, that the time was long; for it was twenty years: and all the house of Israel lamented after the LORD."

1 Samuel 12:2 "And now, behold, the king walketh before you: and I am old and grayheaded; and, behold, my sons are with you: and I have walked before you from my childhood unto this day."

Samuel being about seven years old at the end of the 40 years. From Samuel's birth about 1207 BC to God's appointment of Saul as King of Israel in 1122 BC, Samuel would be 85 years old, and "old and grayheaded."

From Joshua's conquest in 1241 BC about 38 years to 1240 BC, 20 years the ark was left at Kirjathjearim, 38 years to King Ching's 18th year in 1145 BC. All these 38 years pointing to Christ.

Deuteronomy 31:10 "And Moses commanded them, saying, at the end of every seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles,
31:11 When all Israel is come to appear before the LORD thy God, in the place he shall choose, thou shalt read this law before all Israel in their hearing."

Joshua 24:14 "Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in all sincerity and truth: and put away the gods your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt, and serve ye the LORD.
24:15 And if it seem evil for you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house we will serve the LORD."

The 35th year of Wan was the seventh Sabbath fallow year. The feast of tabernacles was in this September on this full moon of the lunar eclipse. Perhaps this was when Joshua gathered Israel together and spoke in Joshua 24 when he was old and nearly 110 years old. This may be a time of a sun miracle, a sign from Heaven to seal the covenant. Thus, the lunar eclipse would be a further sign of heaven king Wan took to declare to the Shang Emperor: "you should be planning for the succession".

The lunar eclipse September 24, 1205 BC is from NASA's Five Millennium Canon of Lunar Eclipses.

From the new moon, January 26, 2636 BC is the start date in Huangdi's 20th year from 2656 BC.

2636 - 1205 = 1431. X 365.25 = 522672.75. Subtract .75 = 522672. / 60 = 8711.2. Now .2 X 60 = 12. Now 12 + January 26 + 5 + February 29 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 31 + 23 = 253. 253 days - 240 = 13. Thus, the lunar eclipse the night of September 23 to September 24, 1205 BC was day 13 of cycle 60. Thus the unlucky lunar eclipse occurred on Friday the 13th!

This day 13 of cycle 60 date to this event adds up. The first month usually is spring, February. However, the Chinese civil new year is in this September.

Te-sin's first year was 1227 BC. Thus his third year was in 1223 BC. The Exodus was in year 35 of cycle 60 in 1281 BC from 2636 BC in China. Josephus wrote Joshua died in the 20th year of Israel's conquest = 1221 BC = year 35 of cycle 60 and a seventh year fallow year. However, Joshua states the people had dwelt in the land for a long time. Thus for Joshua to be 40 and a young man when the 12 spied out the land, he then should have lived 30 more years from his 80th year in the year of conquest. Thus, Joshua may have died in 1211 BC at 110 years of age. Even so, there could have been a sun miracle to mark Joshua's death in the 20th year of conquest.

"In his (Te-sin) 3d year a sparrow produced a hawk." - at the end of the 21st year of Joshua, the seventh year of release when the law was to be read.

Perhaps there was a sun miracle on this seventh year and the hawk was really the phoenix. Josephus wrote that Joshua lived to the 20th year since the conquest. So, Joshua may have made the declaration of Joshua 24 in the fourteenth year of the Chinese cycle 60.

However, Joshua should have been forty when the twelve went to spy out the land. Then Joshua be eighty when he conquered the Promised Land. Then he would live thirty more years to be 110 years old when he died in 1207 BC. This because Joshua may have been 38 in 1282 BC, 78 in 1241 BC, then when he was 110 years old when he died would be 1207 BC. 1207 BC is 1200 years to Jesus' birth.

In the time of Hwang-te, there had been a prophesy to the effect that 'the chief of the west should become king in a certain kea-tze year'."
The Chinese Classics

"In his 22nd year, in winter, he had great hunting along the Wei." "On the kea-tsze day, in the last month of Autumn, a red bird came to Fung..My ancestor, the recorder Ch'ow, divined once for Yu about hunting; and then he met with Kaou-yaou, - from an omen like that which has now occurred."

The sun miracle might have occurred in Te-sin's 22nd year, day one of cycle sixty, November 16, 1206 BC, the year before king Wan made this statement "eclipse is untimely" perhaps because of the sun miracle just previous the lunar eclipse in 1205 BC. November 16 is also the 45th day since the autumn equinox about September 30 at that time in 1206 BC, the last day of Chinese autumn, and the 90th day of autumn. A solar eclipse can occur on the new moon. However, there were no solar eclipses visible from China in those years or dates. Then his 23rd year was in 1205 BC when king Wan was imprisoned, just after his declaration, "eclipse is untimely" because also there was a sign from Heaven that very day that was not only a lunar eclipse.

Perhaps a sun miracle on day 13 of cycle 60 was an unlucky omen. Then the sun miracle at the time of the lunar eclipse on day 13 of cycle 60, September 23, 1205 BC was too much. King Wan felt compelled to declare his mandate from heaven.

"In his 29th year he liberated the chief of the west, who was met by many of the princes, and was escorted back to Ch'ing."

This 29th year was 1200 BC and was the 42nd year from Joshua's conquest and was in the seventh year of release when a sun miracle could be expected. King Wan may have been liberated because of a sun miracle that year. From 1240 BC to 1200 BC Israel had rest. Then they became captive. A sun miracle could be expected in this 29th year, 1200 BC, a sign to Israel of God's displeasure in sending them into captivity and so soon after Joshua admonished them. So, at the sun miracle meant for Israel's captivity, the same sun miracle in China meant king Wan's release.

From this NASA's Web page: "The validity and predictive power of this equation are well documented and can be seen every day: a recent example is the lunar eclipse that was visible to much of the world last Sunday. This calculation would not cover any time before the present, so some missing day many centuries ago, if it had occurred, could not be uncovered with this method."

You will see here the lunar eclipse of September 23, 1205 BC in king Wan's 35th year appears to date king Wan's dream 34 years back to 1239 BC. However this sun miracle record rather May 9, 1206 BC, dates 35 years from king Wan's first year February 15, 1240 BC. Seeing that both a sun miracle on May 9, 1206 BC and the lunar eclipse on September 23, 1205 BC were both on day 13 of cycle 60, these may have been too much for king Wan. At least one of the two must be a sun miracle and not a naturally occurring lunar eclipse. And thus his statement that he had the mandate of heaven. And thus the first sun miracle on day 13 of cycle 60 in the beginning of the year, in spring, May 9, 1206 BC was in his 35th year from February 15, 1240 BC. Nevertheless, his statement was after the lunar eclipse September 23, 1205 BC.

Using the simple orbital mechanics demonstrated here, dates Joshua's long day to August 24, 1241 BC. The space men in the Missing Day Story could make all these calculations just from king Wan's dream. This lunar eclipse occurred Sunday night, March 24, 1997, the day before this NASA page was written. The predictive power works backwards just as well as forwards. A solar eclipse March 4, 1250 BC day 53 is evidence Joshua's long day August 24, 1241 BC left no lasting effect on orbits. All was controlled allowing the long days and leaving no trace. All lunar eclipse speculations do not match king Wan's 35th year on day 13 of 60. Even September 23, 1205 BC was day 13 of cycle 60.

However, the emphasis king Wan made was that there was a lunar eclipse on lunar day 13 and not lunar day 15 and thus he suggested this was a sun miracle, omen for him, king Wan, to become emperor. The sun may have moved on day 13 of cycle 60, May 9, 1206 BC half an orbit, half a year, after the sun miracle November 1207 BC. Thus lunar eclipses do not occur on Chinese day 13, but on Chinese day 15.

Let's do the math: 1500 BC - 1065 BC = 435, 435 X 365.25 = 158883.75 notice the .75, one fraction more and this is day 14 for sure. 158883/60 = 2648.05, .05 X 60 = 3, 3 plus the 29 more days from January 2 to January 31, + 29 leap year, + 13 = 74 - 60 = 14. If the .75 day is not yet leap year, then this is still day 14 because the day begins with sunset.

The lunar eclipse date March 13, 1065 BC was on day 14 of 60 not because that year was leap year and the day following was day 15, but because the day 14 started at sunset the night of the lunar eclipse. The day was counted from sunset. So the night of March 13, 1065 BC is day 14, not day 13. 1065 BC is way off from the actual 35th year of king Wan.

Perhaps King Wan's dream was Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC, the same day as the battle of Merom in Joshua 11.

Judges 5:23 "Curse ye Meroz, said the angel of the LORD, curse ye bitterly the inhabitants thereof; because they came not to the help of the LORD, to the help of the LORD against the mighty."

Meroz may be Merom. Thus Judges 4, 5, may equal Joshua 11.

King Wan's Dream





"King Wan dreamt that he was clothed with the sun and the moon. A phoenix duck sang on mount K'e. In the first month of spring, on the 6th day, the five planets had a conjunction in Fang. Afterwards a male and female phoenix went about Wan's capital with a writing in their beaks, which said: 'The emperor of Yin has no principle, but oppresses and disorders the empire. The great decree is removed: Yin cannot enjoy it longer. The powerful spirits of earth have left it; all the spirits are whistled away. The conjunction of the five planets in Fang brightens all within the four seas.'"
The Annals of the Bamboo Books, Part V the Dynasty of Chow p.143, The Chinese Classics.

The sun must have moved back from Virgo in February 15, 1240 BC 180° to Pisces that night. The earth continued to revolve so Fang/Scorpio set in six hours with the sun in the west. Six more hours, the sun still in the west and coming to a final stop, the sun would be in Aquarius/Pisces, a complete 180°. Then six more hours that night, Scorpio would rise in the east. Thus "The conjunction of the five planets in Fang brightens all within the four seas." Because Saturn and Jupiter would still be in Scorpio and not have time to complete 180° from Scorpio to Taurus. Because Saturn could not travel faster than the speed of light. Even there would be a time delay for light reflected from the sun from Saturn to reach earth.

Thus in that long sunset/night Scorpio would rise above before sunrise, and Saturn at least still appear in Scorpio: "The conjunction of the five planets in Fang brightens all within the four seas."

"all the spirits are whistled away" may refer to the wind created by the sun standing still, and heat, to the west of China. Wind and earthquakes are often mentioned in connection with sun miracles. The wind may also be divine power whereby "the powerful spirits of earth have left it; all the spirits are whistled away."

Then Joshua's long day must have been Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC half an orbit earlier. Half an orbit earlier, 177 days, is also on the sixth day of the lunar month. Joshua's long day is often depicted on the six day moon for the moon to be visible with the noon day sun. Perhaps the moon and sun rose in the west that day. Then Joshua would be well aware of where the moon was, that is setting in the east.

Isaiah 45:6 "That they may know from the rising of the sun and from the shading, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.
45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

Isaiah 59:19 "So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the shading, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him."

Joshua's victory August 24, 1241 BC may be connected to Jesus standing up to speak from Isaiah 61 in Luke 4 on the same day of the year, either at the beginning of the seventh month = August 28, 29 AD Rosh Hashanah, or the New Year, Friday night the sabbath, September 9, 29 AD Yom Kippur. Jesus' real name is Joshua meaning Salvation. If you want Salvation come to Gospel Meeting.

These are hard cold facts and calculations. Even without the Missing Day Story the dates and calculations are the same. Then NASA's statement, that "this calculation would not cover any time before the present", when the event in Joshua 10:13 can be dated from such a lunar eclipse, is defeated. You can do the calculation yourself. If the sun moved back February 15, 1240 BC then the sun first moved to the other side of earth one year earlier, February 17, 1241 BC. If you have a globe you can simulate this. Move the sun to the other side of the globe. Now shift earth's axis by twisting the base to keep the same incline of the sun to earth.

Now, half an orbit later you can shift the globe back by the same amount, the sun move back and the sun's inclination to earth is the same and earth can flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun. Only except for at the equinoxes there is a slight inequality of the number of days of the half orbit and half of a year. Even at the equinoxes there is a difference of missing time between the two half reverse orbits because earth's orbit is elliptical.

Thus with several days difference, 188 days to 177 days, this accounts for the missing 40 minutes in the 24 hour day applied to the half orbit. Earth did not shift, the sun moved up or down after moving to the other side of earth. Neverless, this allows the sun to move back and forth at the half orbit point. Even the planets can equally move back and forth 180° at the half orbit point and be where we would expect them at that time and position in the sky although the background stars are all different. Thus you can see the sun moving back travelling 5 X 180° east on Joshua's long day in the eighth month, seventh day = Sabbath, for Joshua's long day August 24, 1241 BC, half an orbit after February 17, 1241 BC.

Then to keep an even net 48 hours of long days that reverse orbit year, the sun must rise suddenly in the east moving 180° west for a negative 12 hours February 17, 1241 BC and August 24, 1241 BC the sun proceeded to rise in the west, stand still in the sky for 24 hours, then set in the east for 5 X 180° = +60 hours, then the sun rose suddenly in the east for a -12 hours; allowing for a long day of 12 more hours when the sun moved back at the battle of Merom, February 15, 1240 BC: -12 hours + 60 hours -12 hours + 12 hours = 48 hours.

The lunar eclipse on day 56, August 29, 1352 BC, was during King Wuding's reign further confirming the chronology of king Wen's first year in 1240 BC. "This was (August) the 12th month was the month of the Yin calendar. It was several months slower than our current calendar."
Xueshun Liu

Thus the full moon of September 23, 1205 BC was the first month in this Yin calendar. However, the record describes the first month of spring April 26, 1206 BC.

Chinese chronology about the time of Joshua.

"After seven days, at the time from jiwei (day 56) to gengshen (day 57), the moon was eclipsed." was wrongly given the date August 14, 1166 BC. August 14 was day 57. Between day 56 and day 57 was the eclipse. Thus for this to be the correct eclipse this should read between day 57 and day 58 the moon was eclipsed.

August 12, 1269 BC was on day 54 with .75 of a day so could be day 55. Xueshun Liu emailed me that it was a possibility because the night began with day 56. This eclipse may not have been visible from Anyang according to NASA's Lunar Eclipse Canon. Neither was this day the right day.

The lunar eclipse on August 29, 1352 BC was on day 56. This meets all requirements because between day 56 and day 57 was the lunar eclipse. So the night of August 29 day 56 was the eclipse then sunrise on day 57.

The Bamboo Book chronology adding two 60 year cycles to Wu in 1050 BC to Wu in 1174 BC: Thus you see Wuding/Woo-ting from 1399 BC to 1340 BC. The 49 year jubile back from Joshua's conquest 1242 BC - 49 - 49 = 1340 BC. The 49 year jubile to Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD. The 50 year jubile on 1241 BC = the year of Joshua's conquest, less the 70 years of captivity = the fulfillment on Yom Kippur when Jesus spoke from Isaiah 61, September 9, 29 AD to begin his three and a half year ministry. Thus, there may have been a sun miracle on the jubile, whereupon because of the omen the Chinese slew Wuding.

Wanting/Wending from 1251 BC. Thus Wending's 12th year 1240 BC = the phoenixes on mount K'e of king Wan's dream.

King Wan's son Wu becomes emperor

"In the first month, the day jin-shin immediately followed the end of the moon's waning."
- the year Woo/Wu became emperor.

March 1, 1174 BC is day 29 and is the last waning of the moon. Importantly this day 29 of cycle 60 March 1, 1174 is when the moon was just becoming invisible a few days before it passed the sun.

The other date of day 29 January 27, 1122 BC the moon is appearing as a new moon. If it is now visible as a new moon how is it the last waning of the moon? Likewise 60 days later, March 26, 1122 BC, the moon is visible as a new moon also.

1050 BC cannot be the first year of Emperor Wu. Two cycles of 60 years are missing as is given in the text of the Chinese Classics. Wu is 120 years further back. 1122 BC cannot be the first year of the Zhou dynasty. Then Emperor Wu must have become emperor of China in 1174 BC.

There was a new moon on Bingshen day 53 in Wu's first year as emperor. Fourth month, May 19, 1173 BC was the new moon on day 53. This would be Wu's thirteenth year when the kingdom became established.

Jupiter was recorded to be in the Quail Fire constellation Leo just before Wu became emperor. Thus Jupiter is in Virgo/Leo in 1045 BC/1046 BC. Thus man has got the date of Wu's conquest wrong. Wu became emperor of China in 1173 BC not 1045 BC. Jupiter was in the Quail Fire constellation between Hydrae and Crateris in 1177 BC in Wu's ninth year. The sun passed through Hydrae and Crateris in September 1177 BC, with Jupiter appearing there before September and then after September. Then there was a sun miracle in Wu's ninth year as well:

"When King Wu was crossing the Ho, a white fish jumped into his boat in midstream. King Wu bent down and picked it up to use as a sacrifice. After crossing, there was a fire which came down which came down from above to the roof of the king's residence and transformed into a raven. Its colour was ochre. Its call went "P'o-p'o-p'o". At this time the feudal lords who met at Meng-chin without any prearrangement numbered eight hundred. The feudal lords all said, "Chow can be chastised!" King Wu said, "You do not know the heavenly mandate. He cannot be chastised as yet." Then he withdrew his troops and went home." 1177 BC.
The Grand Scribe's Records, Volume 1, p.60.

It was given his 3rd year as Emperor was the appointment of Heaven. The battle in 1174 BC was the 23rd of cycle 60 years. This may be from 1173 BC to the bright appointment of heaven in the 28th year of cycle 60 years, 1170 BC.

"In his 12th year the king led the tribes of the west and the princes to attack Yin, and defeated Show in the wilderness of Muh. He took with his own hand Show prisoner in the tower of Nan-tan; and entered into the participation of the bright appointment of Heaven (sun moon), setting up to continue the sacrifices of his ancestors, Luh-foo, the son of Show, known as Woo-kang. In summer, in the fourth month, he returned to Fung and sacrificed in the ancestral temple."
The Annals of the Bamboo Books, the Dynasty of Chow, p44

"At dawn of the chia-tzu day of the second month, King Wu arrived in the morning at Mu-yeh." And Wu defeated Chow.

Please see The Bamboo Annals Revisited. Problems of Method in using the Chronicle as a Source for a Chronology of Early Zhou.

You can compare the dates for Wu for 1045 BC and see the same matches for Wu here in 1174 BC. Thus there are 120 years missing of the reigns of emperors in China. The correct date for Wu is 1174 BC, not 1045 BC.

Wu moved his spear in 1274 BC and there was a like sun miracle as there was for Lu Yang, perhaps in 464 BC, when the setting sun reversed three stalls. This is Luh-ch'ing who succeeded his father Tan-chih in 464 BC. The sun may have moved with earth's rotation to give the Jews more light on the 13th and 14th of Adar when they avenged themselves in Esther. This date may be the 13th day of the Hebrew 12th month of Adar, Saturday, January 9, and Sunday January 10, 465 BC the 12th year of Xerxes/Ahasuerus of Esther from 477 BC. Or this may be Friday, January 27, 464 BC = Friday/Saturday/Sunday = Adar 13,14,15.

On the way west from Changsha to ChangNing, about a 3 hour drive, on the right there was a sign "Lu Yang" in English. Thus probably was the site where Lu Yang witnessed the sun rising in the west. The land is almost flat, with lots of trees. Thus the sun would rise in the west near the horizon at Lu Yang.

465 BC was seven years before the 49 year jubile in 458 BC = 490 years before Jesus' sacrifice. Thus 465 BC could be the seventh year of release. The sun would have been in Sagittarius, Kow-ts'een, the 1th month = the 11th moath - typo - in China. February 16, 463 BC was the full moon and day 13 of the twelveth lunar month. The 12th month of Adar may have been autumn in China when the sun rose in the west and retreated three stalls for Lu Yang. Thus the sun reversing three stalls may be the sun moving back to Sagittarius the 11th month in China. However, 458 BC was the 10th year of the emperor of China from 567 BC when Luh Ch'ing - probably Lu Yang - died in battle. The cleansing of the altar by Nehemiah.

The sun moving back would then be on the 25th day of the month Adar, January 9, 464 BC. Thus the moon may have set before the sun. The sun may have rose in the west the Saturday Jesus was in the grave to set in the east and suddenly rise in the east on Jesus' resurrection.

This sun miracle on the last quarter moon, and again a year later on the first quarter moon, is very like the fall of Jericho February 17, 1241 BC on the last quarter moon and the battle of Merom/king Wan's dream February 15, 1240 BC on the first quarter moon.

This may be the sun moving to the other side of earth, May 8, 1175 BC, the chia-tzu day - last quarter moon, rising before the sun in the second month. Then one year later the sun must move back, in sixth day of the third month - the sun miracle that day beginning the month on the fourth month, May 8, 1174 BC.

In Wu's 28th of cycle year in the Bamboo Annals = 1170 BC when the vassals resubmitted was the new moon fourth month cyclical date was day 37 of cycle 60, April 17, 1170 BC. Thus, they submitted because four years earlier, they were defeated. Perhaps there was the appointment of Heaven, a sun miracle in Israel on the new moon April 17, 1170 BC, the 37th day of 60 in China.

Likewise his first year was counted as year 24. 1174 BC was the 24th year of cycle 60 form 2636 BC.

"Even more striking is the '23rd-year' record in the 'Feng bao' chapter, mistakenly included among entries concerning King Wen's reign." This 23rd year should be the 23rd year of cycle 60 = 1175 BC. Thus Wu was 12 years a king from his father's death in 1186 BC to become emperor of China in 1174 BC.

You can do the math: From day one, January 27, 2636 - 1170 = 1466, 1466 X 365.25 = 535456.5, drop the remainder, 535456/60 = 8924.2466, .2466 X 60 = 16. + January 26, + 5 = January 31 + 28 + 31 + 17 = 97 - 60 = day 37.

There may have been a sun miracle on March 30, 1281 BC the Exodus, on a day 37, gengzi day, that became an omen for the day 37 new moon April 17, 1170 BC for emperor Wu. The character for sun and moon are together indicating the new moon on this day 37 of cycle 60 = April 17, 1170 BC. Just as there may have been an omen for Wending on day 53 Bingchen, the total eclipse of March 4, 1250 BC and day 53, May 19, 1173 BC for emperor Wu.

The Bamboo Books do not refer to the name emperor Wu, only to the recipient of the Mandate from Heaven from the portent April 17, 1170 BC. Thus there probably was a sun miracle that day.

You can see the new moon on day one of 60, year one of 60, in the Chinese new year of January/February. Which also began on the day of a sun miracle = phoenixes and sacrifice in China. Then half an orbit later August 2, 2636 BC on the 10th day of the seventh month, the sun may move back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun. And the sun move again and earth flow into a reverse orbit again. Then one year later January 27, 2635 BC, the sun move back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit, on the 10th day of the first month.





Please see The Bamboo Annals Revisited. Problems of Method in using the Chronicle as a Source for a Chronology of Early Zhou.

Fall of Jericho

Joshua 6:15 "And it happened on the seventh day, they rose early, at the dawning of the day, and went around the city seven times."

Thus the first day of the first month be January 27, 1241 BC. The day at the end of the third week be February 17, 1241 BC.





H 7925 means to load up early. The same word also means shoulders. Thus the sun rising above the shoulders of the mountains in the east. 7837* is the word Ayin Lamed, which means to rise above to the point of declining. It can also mean God, El. The letter in front is Bet which means from. The next word 7837 is actually a different word and means to dawn. Thus the sun rising above the mountains is now directly from above and declining to the west. Thus this means a sudden "dawn". Also, the sun should proceed naturally to set in the west. The mountain shed a shadow over the town of Jericho on the summer solstice. The February 8, position of the sun 180° later, in the setting mountains to the northwest, may have been like the August 15, position until the sun moved down to keep earth in the same season.

Thus the conquered city which may have been in awe of the solstice shadow may again be in awe February 17, 1241 BC when the sun may have suddenly rose in the east. On the resurrection Sunday, April 5, 33 AD, the sun setting in the west over this mountain may have cast a shadow over Jericho because the sun had not yet moved down while it was moving to the other side of earth. The sun in a direct path would sail high above Jericho near the summer solstice position point as it had moved more than 90° by sunset to complete 180° before Monday sunrise. Thus the shadow of this mount of Temptation, could fall on Jericho. This mountain may have been the mount of Temptation when Jesus fasted forty days and was victorious over Satan August 28, 29 AD at the beginning of the 7th month, or September 9, 29 AD at the New Year Yom Kippur.

Jesus was victorious over death when the sun may have risen again suddenly in the east.





There are clay brick houses next to the wall of Jericho that have lead some to believe Jericho had an inner wall. Nevertheless, in China there is such an ancient city with inner walls. Also, the tower in Jericho is dated 8000 years ago.

This oracle bone may describe the China version of the sun moving at the fall of Jericho, if not the hour of darkness at the Exodus:

"At the time period from the night of the seventh day jisi (day 6) there was (a) big new star that was seen beside Huo Antares."
Heji 11503b

Then this day seven would be the last quarter moon, the last seven days, a chia-tzu day. The last quarter moon would be beside Antares that morning in China in February 17, 1241 BC. Perhaps the sun traveled 180° west. Then Antares may have been appeared directly overhead at sunset/dark in China. Before February 17, 1241 BC Jupiter would appear 15° above the sun as the sun set in the west. Jupiter would set one hour after the sun set. Then Jupiter in Pisces would move 180° to Libra. The sun would move 180° from the first part of Pisces to Virgo. Thus Jupiter, the brightest planet, would appear in Libra beside Antares. Then Jupiter could be the bright new star beside Antares. February 17, 1241 BC the sun was right on top of Mars.

Wuding records a battle commenced by his general Chu late in the day and continued into the early hours of the next chia-tzu. A battle cannot be easily fought in the dark. Possibly this was a record of the sun being moved that provided light to fight.
Ancient Chinese Warfare, Chapter 9, p.166.

Here are examples of the Children of Israel fighting at night, the night before Joshua's long day, the same night that Gideon fought. There are some records of the sun coming out at night. Thus the sun may have rose in the west, stood still for 24 hours at noon, set in the east. Then the sun suddenly and brilliantly ascend in the east.

Joshua 10:9 "Joshua therefore came unto them suddenly, and went up from Gilgal all night."

Romans 13:12 "The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light."

Judges 7:19 "So Gideon, and the hundred men that were with him, came unto the outside of the camp in the beginning of the middle watch; and they had but newly set the watch: and they blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers that were in their hands."

Luke 2:8 "And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
2:9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
2:10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
2:12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
2:13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
2:14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men of good will.
2:15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
2:16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

Here is a picture taken of the fields of Bethlehem about the same September 13 as Jesus was born, that is about September 18, 2010.





The middle watch is midnight. The sun may have risen suddenly in the west at midnight for Gideon, and to give light for Joshua to climb up to Gibeon. The significance may have been the sun suddenly rising at midnight when Jesus was born, the Light of Life.

John 9:4 "I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work."

This battle that appears to be fought at night, at the middle watch of midnight, may have been fought at sunrise in the west at midnight. It is nigh to impossible to fight a battle in the dark.

Thus this oracle bone if describing the sun miracle of February 17, 1241 BC, should not state a bright new star was seen beside Mars, which is red like the fire star Antares Huo, unless Mars did not move in unison with the sun. Nevertheless, if the sun suddenly moved and left Mars and Jupiter behind, Jupiter could appear beside Mars.

Archaeological digs at Jericho have not found a layer of habitation for 1241 BC. Although they did for the city of Hazor for 1240 BC, which Joshua burned to the ground. God may not have left anything of Jericho that wicked city. Likewise God may not have left anything of Sodom or Gomorrah.

Joshua 6:24 "And they burnt the city with fire, and all that was therein: only the silver, and the gold, and the vessels of brass and of iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the LORD."

1 Kings 18:36 "And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.
18:37 Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.
18:38 Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench."

God consumed even the stones. Therefore, God could leave no trace of Jericho, or Sodom or Gomorrah.

Elijah called for three and a half years of famine to bring the people back to God, which he did in this verse. Ahab began his reign in the 38th year of Asa, 944 BC. The Bible chronology does not include 38 years for Azariah, but makes Azariah and Uzziah the same person. These are two separate Kings of Judah. Thus there should be a drought of three and a half years about 933 BC.

From about 950 - 900 BC the temperature in Samaria became cooler and wetter. Thus this drought of Elijah should be only a few more years more recent than 950 BC, perhaps halfway into Ahab's reign from 944 BC to 922 BC = 933 BC, and the drought really did occur.

1 Kings 18:45 "And it came to pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel.
18:46 And the hand of the LORD was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel."

Elijah is said to have traveled twenty miles to the entrance of Jezreel. Thus, when the sun returned, there should be light to run and not stumble. Gideon attacked at the third watch = the middle of the night. Both for Gideon and Joshua = August 24, 1241 BC, the sun must stand still in the sky as it revolves around the earth.

"Shalmaneser III documented 853 BC that he defeated an alliance of a dozen kings in the Battle of Qarqar;"
Wikipedia

This includes Ahab. The Egyptian pharaoh's reigned 76 years earlier. Thus, 853 BC - 76 years = 929 BC. Ahab reigned from 944 BC to 922 BC.

1 Kings 20:26 "And it came to pass at the return of the year, that Benhadad numbered the Syrians, and went up to Aphek, to fight against Israel."

The new year was in the seventh month in September. The "return of the year" may refer to the sun. The sun may have moved to the other side of the earth for a long day in the first battle with the Syrians. Then earth would flow into a reverse orbit of the sun. Then at the second battle with the Syrians a year later on the same date, the sun may have moved back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun. The importance of September may have been Jesus' birth about September 12, 7 BC.

August/September was the month of war "brings such killing"

Joram the son of Ahab, began his reign in Joshaphat's 18th year, Ahab reigned 22 years from Asa's 38th year - Asa's 42nd year - Joshaphat's 18th year. Then Ahab must begin his reign in 944 BC to 922 BC, and Joram his son, from 922 BC 12 years to 910 BC.

Thus, Ahab died in 922 BC = 950 years to Jesus, when Jesus spoke at the jubile, September 29 AD. Thus, also the connection Jesus said of the three and a half years of famine of Elijah in the days of Ahab, when He spoke in Luke 4.

"In his, emperor Muh, 17th year,..In the autumn, in the 8th month, certain hordes were removed to T'ae-yuen..In his 18th year, in the spring, in the 1st month, he dwelt in the palace of Che, where princes came and did homage."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.151

Emperor Muh reigned 59 years from 968 BC to 907 BC. Thus, his 18th year would be 950 BC, about the first year of king Ahab. Dates like the 8th month, the 1st month, suggest perhaps sun miracles six months apart.

An objection to a famine and low Sea of Galilee after 950 BC was made. Their chronology for Elijah's drought was some 38 years too recent, thus their objection because of their wrong date.

Thus the age of Jesus when he was crucified, 38 years old, was reinforced in the chronology of the kings. And just as the 38 years for Azariah was hidden, the habitation layer of Jericho at the time of Joshua was hidden.

The fall of Jericho must have been marked by a sudden sunrise. Then earth flowed into a reverse orbit of the sun. Then half an orbit later, 188 days later, the sun rose in the west at the second watch at night about 11 PM in August 23, 1241 BC. This was the night Joshua was called to help Gibeon and the night Gideon was bidden of God to attack the Midianites. Then the battles. The sun was passing west to east and was at the noon position when Joshua asked God to make the sun and moon stand still. The first quarter moon rose before the sun in the west, and now was setting in the east. Thus Joshua asked that both the sun and moon stand still. The sun then revolved almost 360° around the earth to stand still in the sky for a whole day.

Therefore the moon which was about to set in the east, stood still in the Ajalon valley. Afterwards, the sun also set in the east. Then brilliantly and suddenly rose in the east Sunday morning, August 25, 1241 BC. Earth had flowed out of a reverse orbit of the sun and now back into a reverse orbit of the sun. Then half a orbit later, February 15, 1240 BC, the sun revolved around the earth 180° with earth's rotation to stand still in the noon sky for 12 hours in the battle of Merom. Then earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun. Earth's orbit was 100% normal, no trace was left. Even there was no net missing time.

Solar eclipse paths were the same before and after as predicted by computer model. Orbits are well understood and can be projected forward or backward. And the interfering event has been uncovered here using simple orbit mechanics.

Jesus sent the twelve apostles into all the world to proclaim the light of Jesus' life just as the light of the sun lightens the 12 hour day 360° around the world. The sun standing still for Joshua for 24 hours was also like the eternal day of a saved eternity in Heaven.

You are invited to come and hear the Gospel and follow the Light of life, the lowly Jesus.

Joshua may have crossed the river Jordan Sunday, February 4, 1241 BC when the Jordan was in flood, the 10th day of the lunar month. The Jordan is naturally in flood in January. Then the manna ceased Monday, February 5, 1240 BC the next day. Then they ate of the fruit of the promised land. Then Joshua may have kept the Passover, Thursday, February 8, 1241 BC. Then the walls of Jericho may have fallen on Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC.

Walls of Jericho:





Perhaps the sun rose suddenly in the east Saturday the seventh day, February 17, 1241 BC.

Joshua 6:12 "And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests bore the ark of Jehovah.
6:15 And it happened on the seventh day, they rose early, at the dawning of the day, and went around the city seven times.
6:20 And the people shouted, and blew with the trumpets, and it happened when people heard the sound of the trumpet, the people shouted a great shout. And the wall fell under it; and the people went up into the city, each man in front of him; and they captured the city."

Then half an orbit later at 11 PM Friday night, August 23, 1241 BC, at the sun may have rose in the west. Gideon attacked at the beginning of the second watch, Joshua went up all night from Gilgal to Gibeon. Here you see the palm trees about where Gigal was:





So by noon on Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC, the sun was passing west east over Gibeon where Joshua was fighting. Then Joshua may have asked God to make the sun stand still, the five day moon almost setting in the east. Thus Joshua would be aware of the moon because it did not just rise in the east, but had rose in the west and had travelled from west to east. Thus Joshua commanded both the sun and the moon because they were travelling west to east. Then there may have been 24 extra hours of day light that day.

The new year in the seventh month is celebrated as the time Joshua conquered the five kings at Gibeon. The conquest must have been in the eighth month, the sixth day of the month, August 24, 1241 BC. Thus the connection to Yom Kippur the national holyday is approximately correct.

The return of the year was in the seventh month, September. August/September was the usual time to go to war. Thus, the five kings came to fight Gibeon and Joshua, August 24, 1241 BC.

1 Kings 20:22 "And the prophet came to the king of Israel, and said unto him, Go, strengthen thyself, and mark, and see what thou doest: for at the return of the year the king of Syria will come up against thee."

1 Kings 20:26 "And it came to pass at the return of the year, that Benhadad numbered the Syrians, and went up to Aphek, to fight against Israel."

Joshua's battle may have been on the sixth day moon. The new year on the 9th day moon. Then either the sun set in the west or the east. So Joshua may have fought on the Sabbath, Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC. This same day Gideon may have fought the Midianites. Both Joshua and Gideon were faint but pursuing:

Joshua 10:19 "And stay ye not, but pursue after your enemies, and smite the hindmost of them; suffer them not to enter into their cities: for the LORD your God hath delivered them into your hand."

Judges 8:4 "And Gideon came to Jordan, and passed over, he, and the three hundred men that were with him, faint, yet pursuing them."

Then perhaps Gideon returned before the sun suddenly ascended in the east Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC.

Joshua 10:29 "And Joshua passed on, and all Israel with him, from Makkedah to Libna. And he fought with Libna.
10:30 And Jehovah also gave it into the hand of Israel, and its king. And they struck it by the mouth of the sword, and every person in it; he did not leave a survivor in it. And he did to its king as he did to the king of Jericho."

10:32a "And Jehovah gave Laschish into the hand of Israel and he captured it on the second day."

For Joshua to travel to Makkedah from noon at Gibeon, he must travel more than 30 miles in the six hours to sunset. Thus, given 24 more hours, Joshua would have time to get the victory before the enemy could get away and regroup.

Joshua 10:28 "And that day Joshua took Makkedah, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and the king thereof he utterly destroyed, them, and all the souls that were therein; he let none remain: and he did to the king of Makkedah as he did unto the king of Jericho."

Not only did Joshua get to Makkedah by sunset, he also smote all the city. To do all this Joshua would need more than the 6 hours from noon to sunset.

I have been up the road from Jericho to Jerusalem by bus. The terrain for hiking upwards is generally smooth. The Jordan valley is 1,200 feet below sea level. So the hike up to Gibeon would be 4,500 feet up and about 18 miles. I have run uphill 3,000 feet six miles and six miles back in about two hours, no problem. To people accustomed to walking everywhere this hike from Gilgal to Gibeon should be no problem too. Nevertheless, to travel a further 30 or 40 miles to Azekah from Gibeon from at noon in just 6 hours till sunset is not possible unless the day was lengthened.

"as he did to the king of Jericho" may refer also to a like sudden sunrise in the east on the conquest of Jericho and like victory.

Thus Joshua's long day be Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC. Joshua take Libna the next day, Sunday the first day of the week, August 25, 1241 BC. Then Joshua take Laschish the next day, the second day of the week, August 26, 1241 BC.

The sudden sunrise of Gideon may have been on the first day of the week, Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC, as it was when Jesus rose from the dead. Thus the second day of the week was the next day, the second day.

Judges 8:13 "And Gideon, the son of Joash, returned from battle at the ascent of the sun."

Judges 14:18 "And the men of the city said unto him on the seventh day before the sun went down, What is sweeter than honey? and what is stronger than a lion? And he said unto them, If ye had not plowed with my heifer, ye had not found out my riddle."

Samson means sunlight. The word for sun Cheres is the same as in Judges 8:13. The sun normally sets in the west. However, this Sabbath may be a type of Jesus' resurrection where the sun set in the east to soon suddenly rise in the east. Thus Samson's name "Sunlight".

Likewise the sun may have suddenly rose on Jacob at the same place of Penuel:

Genesis 32:30 "And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.
32:31 And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him, and he halted upon his thigh."

The long chronology started with the emperor Huangdi in 2696 BC and Yao in 2356 BC. Huangdi reigned from 2656 BC, 40 years more recent. Then likewise Yao must have reigned 40 years more recent from 2315 BC.

The Common Scheme in the Chinese Classics, The Bamboo Books, page 184, Table of Chronology, begins with Yao in 2356 BC. Huangdi's 20th year January 27, 2636 BC, began the cycle 60 years and 60 days. Then 40 years more recent also for Yao from 2356 BC = 2315 BC.

Counting the emperors back from Yao/Joseph at 2315 BC, + 9 years + 63 years = 2387 BC = Gaoxin's first year. "In his 45th year, he conferred the prince of T'ang the appointment to be his successor." = 2343 BC = the year Jacob left Haran. Abraham left Haran 2532 BC, 190 years previous. Joseph was born in 2346 BC, 30 years before he became governor over Egypt in 2315 BC. Joseph's and Yao's sun miracle may have occurred on the full moon, April 2, 2315 BC. Then half an orbit later, October 2, 2315 BC would be the 17th day of the 7th Hebrew month when the sun may move back, and forward again. October 2, 2315 BC was day 14 of cycle 60. Years 1207 BC, 507 BC and 207 BC have the 17th day of the 7th Hebrew month day 14 of cycle 60 in China.

2345 BC = emperor Kuh's 45th year, a sun miracle on Joseph's birth may have prompted emperor Kuh to appoint the prince of T'ang to be his successor, = Joseph's birth = 38 years to Jacob entering Egypt in the second year of famine = 7 BC = the 38 years of Jesus' life to his crucifixion April 3, 33 AD. The parallel, Julius Caesar died the full moon March 15, 45 BC, perhaps he was assassinated because of an omen about 10 AM in Italy = before Julius Caeasar was assassinated. (Julius Caeasar had just begun the year with January 1 = the new moon and thus March 15 = the full moon 45 BC) = three hours of darkness at noon Israel time to foretell the three hours of darkness when Jesus would be on the cross. (May have been one hour, the sun reappearing at the 3 PM position in Israel after completing 360° around the earth)

"He made blind men beat drums, and strike bells and sounding stones, at which the phoenixes flapped their wings, and gambolled."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.111

Emperor Kuh's first year would be 2387 BC; 2316 BC + 10 + 63 = 2390 BC. There was a jubile in 1241 BC when Joshua crossed the Jordan into the Promised Land. 2390 BC - 1240 BC = 1150 years = 23 X 50 years.

The Chinese new year sometimes began in January, sometimes in November. The new year changed from January to November about 607 BC. The new moon November 15, 606 BC a lunar month before the winter solstice December 25, 606 BC. The 17th day of the seventh Hebrew month November 13, 607 BC. Thus there may have been a sun miracle 600 years before Jesus' birth, the 17th day of the 7th lunar month, September 13, 7 BC = the reason the Chinese calendar was changed.

2 Kings 24:12 "And Jehoiachin the king of Judah went out to the king of Babylon, he, and his mother, and his servants, and his princes, and his officers: and the king of Babylon took him in the eighth year of his reign."

Jehoiachin the king of Judah reigned from 614 BC, his eighth year 607 BC = 600 years to Jesus' birth in 7 BC. There may have been a sun miracle to mark the beginning of the Captivity.

There may be a second sun miracle two years after the first. This would be like a sun miracle on Jesus' birth about September 12, 7 BC, and the sun return on the full moon September 15, 5 BC. Then perhaps a sun miracle November 14, 607 BC and November 16, 605 BC. Thus earth flow into and out of the reverse orbit on the anniversary date.

Also 605 BC was the 49 year jubile from 1241 BC when Jerusalem was besieged by Nebuchadnezzar. Then Jerusalem destroyed in 591 BC the 50 year jubile from 1241 BC.

Isaiah 8:4 "For before the child shall have knowledge to cry, My father, and my mother, the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria shall be taken away before the king of Assyria."

Isaiah 37:30 "And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such as groweth of itself; and the second year that which springeth of the same: and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruit thereof."

The year 48 and 49 were fallow of the 49 year jubile, the third year they could sow. Also the year 49 and 50 of the 50 year jubile were fallow, the third year they could sow. When the captivity would actually come, they would not be there to sow in the third year.

Joseph would be 38 and a half years old on the full moon of April 1, the 14th day of the lunar month = passover the third day of the week and Pharaoh's birthday. Jesus was 38 and a half years old when he was crucified April 3, 33 AD from his birth September 12, 7 BC - there is no year zero.

Genesis 40:20 "And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh's birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants."

April 1, 2315 BC was Tuesday the third day of the week. April 1 was always Pharaoh's birthday = 430th year sothis. New Years had backed up 430 / 4 days 107 days from July 17 to April 1. Then the sun miracle of Yao may have been April 1, 2315 BC = the same day Joseph was taken out of prison and made governor over Egypt.

Then a few years after Joseph was born Jacob arrived in Peniel in about 2343 BC. Thus the sun suddenly ascended in Peniel about 2343 BC in emperor Gaoxin's 45th year that was an omen for him to appoint a successor.

2315 BC was 2308 years befire Jesus was born. The Sojourn of Jacob into Egypt was in 2307 BC, 2300 years before Jesus was born. Then subtract 49 year jubiles: 2309 - 490 - 490 - 490 - 490 = 349 years. 5 X 50 years = 350 years to 7 BC. Or 5 X 49 years = 245 years to 12 BC.

Just after the sun had suddenly ascended in the east in Judges 8:13:

Judges 8:17 "And he beat down the tower of Penuel, and slew the men of the city."

Then the sun may have returned Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC and this be the six day moon of king Wan's dream in the first month of the Chinese Spring and the sun may have stood still 12 hours at noon. Thus all 48 missing hours of earth's sped up reverse orbit are countered; minus 12 hours February 17, 1241 BC, plus 60 hours (36 hours of daylight) August 24, 1241 BC, minus 12 hours August 25, 1241 BC, plus 12 hours February 15, 1240 BC = 48 hours.

Perhaps the battle of Merom was fought on this day. Then the Israelites may have chased the Midianites into Syria, February 15, 1240 BC and this be the Assyrian Omen:

"If in Adar the sun stands still in the middle of noontime: the land will experience siege (and) misery."

The year before in February 17, 1241 BC was in Nissan. Every three months a second month of Adar was added. Joshua's long day was the sixth day of the eighth month. Then if not a second month, but a third month, of Adar was added: December 13 = Adar 1, January 11 = Adar 2, February 10, 1240 BC = Adar 3. Thus two months of Adar may have been added. Then the Pass Over would occur on March 28, 1240 BC the same date as the Exodus, March 30, 1281 BC. Julius Caesar did the same thing by adding three months at the end of the year to bring the lunar calendar back in line. Then there would have been siege and misery in the month of Adar as Joshua invaded Syria that day.

The new year began in September in Egypt as a countdown to redemption with the Passover March 30 - the end of the 430th year. The year end in sothis year 430 from the new sothis cycle in 2737 BC was Hebrew lunar day 14, April 1, 2307 BC. So the Exodus was the same day at the end of the 1460 year from 2741 BC, or 1456 years from 2737 BC - Sirius appeared to start the sothis cycle one day earlier from July 17 instead of July 16 = 4 years earlier, sothis cycle 1281 BC. Also, Sirius is a binary star. This means in its 50 year orbit it may appear on July 16 or July 17 depending on the phase of its orbit. Thus on July 17 1282 BC Sirius must have been visible at 4:15 AM to end the old sothis cycle. 2741 BC - 1460 = 1281 BC. Or 2737 BC - 1456 years = 1281 BC.

Likewise Jesus began his ministry in Luke 4 on Rosh Hashanah August 28, 29 AD or Yom Kippur September 9, 29 AD, as a countdown to his crucifixion, resurrection and redemption for three and a half years later.

Genesis 40:20 "And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh's birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants."

Genesis 41:1 "And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river."

The third day was Pharaoh's birthday, Friday, April 1, 2318 BC. Thus the baker was hung on a cross on the same day Friday as Jesus was crucified. The Egyptian lunar month began with the last visibility of the moon. This was March 19, 2318 BC. Then the 14th day of the month, when the Passover would be held, was Friday, April 1, 2318 BC. The Egyptians had a fixed 10 day week. So IV Shemu 30 would be July 16. Then I Shemu 1 would be March 20, 2318 BC. Then I Shemu 10 would be March 29, 2318 BC. Then the third day of that 10 day week would be April 1, 2318 BC. This calculation was not dependent on the year, but works for every year because this was the Egyptian's fixed calendar. The end of the year in 2315 BC was year 422 and was April 2, 105 days back from July 16.

April 1 was Pharaoh's birth day by tradition. Thus Joseph was made governor over Egypt after two full years in prison at the end of the two full years, on new years April 2, 2315 BC.

Pharaoh's birthday was always April 1. Thus the day Joseph became governor over Egypt, April 1, 2315 BC was on Pharaoh's birthday. Also this was the day the sun stood still in China whereupon Yao was made emperor. This was 11 days before the vernal equinox April 12, 2315 BC and thus the four stars that marked the four seasons were several hundred years more recent in precession. This is because it takes several hundred years for the equinox to back up from April 12 to April 1 in the Julian calendar. Thus the sun moved to the other side of the earth and earth flowed into a reverse orbit of the sun and the path of the earth through the zodiac changed the stars marking the seasons to several hundred years in the future.

Then the fortieth year was from March 30, 1281 BC to the twelfth lunar month of the 40th year, December 1242 BC.

Pharaoh Merneptah died May 2, 1203 BC according to contemporary sources. However, as seen here, Merneptah died in 1281 BC. Yet the Exodus March 30, 1281 BC to May 2, 1281 BC is 32 days. 14 days is too short a time to travel to Aqaba. 32 days is just long enough for the children of Israel to travel the rough terrain more than 350 miles from Ramesses to Aqaba where they may have crossed the Red Sea. May 2, 1281 would be III Shemu 15. April 2, 1281 BC would be II Shemu 15. Thus April 2, 1281 BC the children of Israel may have crossed the Reed Sea, I1 Shemu 15.

Below you will see three anchor dates, II Shemu 25, May 14, 1338 BC and IV Peret 12, December 30, 1332 BC. Every 19 years the lunar date will match the fixed Egyptian date. So add 76 years to May 14, 1338 BC and we have the solar eclipse June 14, 1414 BC = II Shemu 25. Likewise add 76 years to December 30, 1332 BC and we have the solar eclipse January 29, 1407 BC = IV Peret 12. Merneptah died a few months short of a full ten year reign beginning in July or June. His death should be in April 1281 BC.

Merneptah's son Messuwy would be the likely successor.

Exodus 12:30 "And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.
12:31 And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Israel; and go, serve the LORD, as ye have said."

Here you see the two eclipse paths. Remember there is no year 0, and NASA Fortran counts a year 0. Then all dates are one year further back. You can see the solar eclipse of June 14, 1414 BC is visible at sunset in Egypt. Sunset is when most people would look at the sun. The solar eclipse of January 29, 1407 BC is visible at sunrise in Egypt. This is also when many people would be looking at the sun. Thus the Egyptian chronology must be moved 76 years further back, 4 X 19 years. Then we have some of the most ancient solar eclipse records. These also predate Joshua's long day. Thus eclipse dates before Joshua's long day are where we would expect them to be.

This eclipse record for June 14, 1414 BC, II Shemu 25, as calculated here may be the earliest actual eclipse on record. The Five Millenium Canon of Solar Eclipses and Lunar Eclipses projecting to where they should be backward in time are completely correct.





Here you see the eclipse path for the solar eclipse April 11, 1411 BC, instead of March 13, 1335 BC. This is the 24 Peret IV year 5. Notice how the solar eclipse is visible from northern Egypt:





The new moon April 1, 1410 BC would occur on Pharaoh's birthday = the day of Jacob's entry into Egypt on the 430th year, new years. Also, there may have been many sun miracles on April 1 through the centuries to point to Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD. Thus the importance of this new moon on April 1.

Here you see the eclipse path for the solar eclipse January 29, 1407 BC, instead of December 30, 1332 BC.





Notice how the 76 years work. There was 66 years for Ramses II and 10 years for Merneptah = the same 76 years. Thus from Merneptah's death estimated in 1205 BC, this works perfectly with 1281 BC 76 years earlier. This is why you will see the date of 1281 BC for Pharaoh Seti I's death in 1281 BC. Therefore the date of 1281 BC is correct for the date of the Exodus. Only the Pharaoh is Merneptah, not Seti I.

Every 19 years the lunar cycle is the same date. Thus, 4 X 19 = this 76 years and solar eclipse dates. Then also, in Jesus' 38 years the lunar cycle in his first year must match the lunar cycle in his 38th year. Also, Jesus born the 17th day of the seventh month, September 12, 7 BC to his crucifixion the 14th day of the first month.

Moses must have been born in 1361 BC. Then the practice of killing Hebrew boys would end with the death of Seti I in 1357 BC when Moses was four years old.

This chronology means the new sothis cycle began the year of the Exodus 1281 BC. This because II Shemu 25 was June 14, 1414 BC. IV Shemu must end July 16. Thus IV Shemu ended June 14 + 5 + 30 + 30 = August 17, 1414 BC. Then back from August 17 to July 16 is 33 days. 33 X 4 = 132 years. 1414 - 132 years = 1282 BC the year of the new sothis cycle. Thus the Exodus was the beginning of the new sothis cycle of 1460 years in Egypt.

Exodus 12:40 "Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was from the four hundred and thirty years.
12:41 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt."

From the 430th sothis year with the first year 2737 BC and the 430th year 2307 BC. The end of the 430th year is the end of the Sothis cycle of 1460 years. Thus the Exodus was at the end of the sothis cycle, 2741 BC - 1460 years is 1281 BC. Or rather, 2737 BC - 1456 years = 1281 BC. The end of the year in the 430th of sothis was Friday April 1, 2307 BC. Thus the Exodus the night of Friday, March 30, 1281 BC the selfsame day.

The word "Bet" does not mean "for" it means "from". The character Bet is shaped like a one room house. The meaning of Bet is house. In the 430th Egyptian Sothis year = 430 / 4 = 107 days back from July 16 = April 1. The sun was in the Aries constellation April 1. The house of the zodiac in Aries on April 1. The Exodus was when the sun was in this same house as the Sojourn into Egypt April 1.

The full moon was Sunday April 3, 2307 BC. The selfsame day may be Sunday, April 3, 2307 BC instead of Friday April 1, 2307 BC. Jesus was crucified Friday, April 3, 33 AD. April 3, 2307 BC was about day 53 of cycle 60. Day 53 was cited as an omen a few times. If the sun moved to the other side of earth April 3, 2307 BC, the sun may move back half an orbit later, 186 days later, on day 60 of cycle 60, also a day of cycle of an omen.

Galations 3:17 "And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect."

The law was given at the end, the end of the Egyptian sothis calendar. The sojourn from year 430 to the Exodus in year 1456.

The Exodus must have been Friday March 30, 1281 BC and the crossing of the Reed Sea three days later. However, the children of Israel may have crossed the Red Sea instead several days later.

The following are Egyptian records. They are based on the end of the sothis cycle to be 1320 BC which is 40 years earlier than the actual end of the sothis cycle 1281 BC. Also, the actual chronology is 76 years earlier than these dates. 76 + 40 / 4 = 29. Thus both the day of the same Egyptian 30 day month is the same and the lunar phase, 29.5 days, of that date is the same. Thus these prove Merneptah was the pharaoh of the Exodus:

Some consider Seti I to be the Pharaoh that drowned in the Red Sea 1279 BC of Exodus because some date Ramses II to have died in 1213 BC too late a date for the Exodus because the forty years in the wilderness would bring the invasion of Canaan to 1173 BC, way too recent a date. Even so, there appears to have been a sun miracle, king Wan's dream, on that date. If so, Seti I's body must have been recovered from the sea shore. However, there is some indication Pharaoh Merneptah did die from drowning: "Dr Bucaille discovered that Merneptah had received very violent blows to several parts of his body and had suffered a massive heart attack.

Amazingly, these are the results which occur when someone dies from drowning!" "In 1898, the mummified body of Merneptah was found in the valley of Kings in Egypt. In 1975, Dr. Maurice Bucaille with other doctors received permission to examine the Mummy of Merneptah, the findings of which proved that Merneptah probably died from drowning or a violent shock which immediately preceded the moment of drowning." "In 1975, Dr. Maurice Bucaille with other doctors received permission to examine the Mummy of Merneptah, the findings of which proved that Merneptah probably died from drowning"

Then there is a possibility that Merneptah was the pharaoh of the Exodus. They may be right in that Merneptah may be the pharaoh that died when the book of Exodus begins. Probably Merneptah did not drown in the Reed Sea with his army in Exodus. Instead, the pharaoh must have been Merneptah's immediate successor. That this pharaoh is not recorded may be due to the short time he was pharaoh and the hate the Egyptians would have for him after going through the 10 plagues of Exodus and the anarchy that would develop after his death.

There were Israelite settlers already in the land, re the Merneptah Stela, and the lunar date for Ramses II 52nd year must work. This would mean Ramses II must have begun his reign 76 years earlier in 1355 BC.

Ramses II 52nd year was dated by the 28th day of the moon December 20 1228 BC = 20-XII-1228 B.C. (year 52 II prt 28). The fixed 30 day months began July 22 and December 20 began a new month on the 28th day of the moon.

"Re raises the vault the first day in the second period of peret (prt). That must be 21st December"

However, December 20, 1304 BC is also the 28th day of the moon. (More accurately December 18 is the 28th day of the Egyptian moon and the beginning of the II peret) 1279 BC (Exodus) - 1203 BC (Merneptah drowned) = 76 year gap. Then 76 + 1279 BC = 1355 BC and Ramses II's 52nd year may be 1304 BC.

Thus you see there is ample proof the Exodus was at then end of the 1460 year, one day early from 2737 BC = 1456 year, sothis cycle in 1281 BC at the time of the new year in the sojourn into Egypt in year 430, 2307 BC April 1, and thus the Exodus on the same day March 30, 1281 BC. Then also, there is much evidence that the pharaoh of the Exodus was Merneptah. After Merneptah Egypt suffered steep decline as to be expected with the destruction of the plagues of the Exodus.

Pharaoh Merneptah must date 76 years earlier. This would put King Tut's tenth and last year 1407 BC. There may have been a sun miracle then, 1407 BC is 1400 years before Jesus' birth in 7 BC. A sun miracle may have been taken for an omen to kill King Tut.

Joshua's long day must have been on the Sabbath to fulfill scripture:

Hebrews 4:4 "For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.
4:5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.
4:6 Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:
4:7 Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time: as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
4:8 For if Joshua had given them rest, then would he not have spoken of another day.
4:9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God."

Joshua's long day may have been on the Sabbath, Saturday, August 24, 1241 BC. Joshua could not give Israel rest that day because they were fighting to conquer the promised land. Likewise when the sun returned Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC at the battle of Merom. Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC have been counted as day six by the Chinese for king Wan's dream. Thus even the battle of Merom may have been fought on the Sabbath. Thus all three dates, the battle of Jericho, Joshua's long day, and the battle of Merom were fought on the Sabbath. Jesus could not give his disciples rest when he was in the grave on the Sabbath, Saturday, after he was crucified because his disciples were mourning his death until his resurrection early Sunday morning.

Four Sun Miracles, Net 48 Hours Long - Earth Sped up 48 Hours = No Net Missing Time





View the power point presentation step by step animation of the above model. Or the joshua.pdf.

Earth Sped Up 48 Hours







You can see in the above orbits that earth in a reverse orbit has 2 more days a year. This means earth must speed up in its reverse orbit 48 hours, 2 X 24 hour days, to keep 365.2422 days a year. Or else there would be 367.2422 days a year. That is, earth must speed up from 105,000 kilometers an hour to 105,570 kilometers an hour.

Likewise, the moon in earth's reverse orbit has two more lunar months a year. Thus the moon must slow down two orbits a reverse orbit year. There are 27.322 days a lunar orbit. Then in a reverse orbit the moon must slow down 54.644 days a year to keep the normal 12 lunar months a year. Because earth is sped up 48 hours a year, the moon must speed up 48 hours a year as well. So the moon must slow down 52.644 days in its orbit of the earth in a reverse orbit year to keep the same 12.36 lunar months a year. That is, the moon must slow down from 3,600 kilometers an hour to 3,100 kilometers an hour.

All these orbits are relative to earth. Tides etc. would be exactly the same relative to the day. Scientists measure how many tides = lunar orbits a year in sediment. They can then calculate the length of the day. However, in this controlled reverse orbit the number of lunar orbits a year is exactly the same as normal. The lunar tide and the solar tide that day should match the sediment layer that day. The length of the year with long days is exactly the same as well. No evidence was left.

NASA Red Light Trigger

The space program began in earnest in 1958 so by 1969 when Harold Hill heard of the Missing Day NASA was capable of discovering it. According to Harold Hill NASA discovered it in the 1960's space mission to the moon. Simply finding a result that was an error could cause the red light to come up. Such a result could be that the sun was 180° away from where should be, like in king Wan's dream, would cause the program to halt.

Project Blue Book began in 1952 when NASA investigated UFO reports. It was terminated in 1970. Thus if NASA was doing all this research at the time the missing day story came out in 1969, all the more reason NASA would also look into the Chinese Classics. It only took me a matter of months of reading the Chinese Classics in 1999 to uncover earth's reverse orbit.

The sun returned one year after the fall of Jericho, six months after Joshua's Long Day.

"King Wan dreamt that he was clothed with the sun and the moon. A phoenix duck sang on mount K'e. In the first month of spring, on the 6th day, the five planets had a conjunction in Fang. Afterwards a male and female phoenix went about Wan's capital with a writing in their beaks, which said: 'The emperor of Yin has no principle, but oppresses and disorders the empire. The great decree is removed: Yin cannot enjoy it longer. The powerful spirits of earth have left it; all the spirits are whistled away. The conjunction of the five planets in Fang brightens all within the four seas.'"
The Annals of the Bamboo Books, Part V the Dynasty of Chow, The Chinese Classics.

Joshua's six day moon in Israel was above in China, Joshua's noon sun was setting in China. Half an orbit later, 176 days later - February 15, 1240 BC - there was a six day moon also. The Chinese spring was 45 days before the spring equinox. The spring equinox in 1240 BC was April 2, 1240 BC. Thus spring was February 15, 1240 BC. Thus the lunar month beginning February 10, 1240 BC, was the first month of spring- the sun miracle February 15, 1240 BC be the first day of the 45 days to the spring equinox - the first of spring. The Chinese new year celebration of 15 days ended on the full moon, March 13, 1240 BC. King Wan's dream occurred just after sunset in China. Thus the sixth day of the month began with sunset that Saturday, February 15, 1240 BC = noon Saturday Israel time.

The planets were in Fang/Libra, the sun in Virgo - a Fall constellation. The sun is in Virgo in September. So September in no way could be called Spring! This was the position the sun, moon and planets were in prior to king Wan's long sunset. The date was the first week of the first month of Spring when the sun must be in Pisces but was in Virgo!

In the Missing Day Story, there may have been a computer check that gave an error when the wrong season of the year was entered in regards to the position of the sun. Fall was the answer the computer was looking for. Spring was entered. Then the red light. Once they obtained the date the earth was nearest the sun in 1240 BC and the Assyrian Omen date of Adar, January/February - the same date as the Chinese Spring, for the sun standing still at noon, they could calculate the missing 40 minutes on a slide rule. The Assyrian Omen was for the battle of Merom when Joshua chased the Assyrians into Sidon a year after the fall of Jericho when the sun must return. From Megiddo/Merom to Sidon is about 70 miles. Hardly is it possible to chase the Assyrians 70 miles in a normal 12 hour day.

However, with 12 more hours, this was a 24 hour day and it was very possible for Joshua to chase the Assyrians to Sidon. Both the Assyrian Omen and king Wan's dream and Joshua's long day were for 1241 BC/1240 BC. Some of the talented people employed in the mission to the moon may have been the ones to discover the missing day.

Or else I am the first to discover the model of Joshua's long day.

Orbit Shift

The position of the planets in the TheSky February 15, 1240 BC:





Top View. You can see the planets are left behind to form a conjunction in the west as the sun revolves 180 degrees counter clock wise around the earth in the evening sky above the setting sun in China. Thus, if all five planets moved back, they would first appear in Scorpio/Fang directly above at sunset in China:





The position sideways of earth, sun and planets before the sun moved back, February 15, 1240 BC:





The position of the earth, the sun and planets after the sun moved back, February 15, 1240 BC:





The sun at 6 PM China time was in Corvus, the planets appeared above in Scorpius February 15, 1240 BC. Thus at the start of the sun miracle the planets were in Scorpius. Then the sun in Corvus moved 180° with earth's rotation to Aquarius. Thus at the start of the long sunset at 6 PM China time the planets were above in Scorpius as they were recorded. This record in Spring is impossible without earth being in a reverse orbit of the sun having moved to the other side of the earth one year earlier. Jupiter and Saturn would stand still above the western sky and set in Aries and Taurus where they should be February 15, 1240 BC.

However, Saturn would take about 24 hours to move 180°. Thus, all five planets would first appear in Fang/Scorpio, and stay there most of the 12 hours the sun stood just below the western horizon. Then earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun without a trace. Then in the next 12 hours of the night, after about 24 hours in total, in China, Saturn may complete the move to Aries. Likewise Jupiter would appear with Saturn in Scorpio, before the sun miracle, before moving 180° to Aries, and Jupiter would stay in the Fang/Scorpio constellation, before slowly moving to Aries in about 12 hours.

Each day in a reverse orbit must be 8 minutes shorter than it would have in a reverse orbit because earth must be sped up 2 days, 48 hours, a year to keep 365.24 days a year because rotation is against orbit. The daily amount of heat radiation from the sun must have been adjusted to leave no biological trace in this 8 minutes less a day, 4 minutes less day light a day. Other than moving the sun at near light speed, there is nothing about this present physics cannot accommodate or expect there to be physical evidence left. If the physics works and leaves no evidence and fits ancient observation, then beware if you be so inclined to mock what may very well be God's work. If NASA is saying there is no trace, no physical evidence the sun moved, they are probably right.

However, NASA may be saying there is no evidence whatsoever of the sun being moved around the earth. Then the abundance of evidence documented on this web page directly contradicts that statement. If the sun moved to the other side of the earth, earth's forward momentum would carry earth into a reverse orbit of the sun. Earth must match its elliptical orbit in reverse perfectly. Earth almost certainly could not be left to itself. The reverse orbit must have been very skillfully managed to keep the sun's same seasonal intensity, as it would have had, throughout the year at the same time speeding up the yearly orbit 48 hours to keep the 365 days in a year because rotations are against orbit. If the sun moved earth must flow into a reverse orbit.

This answers both concerns: Earth is rotating at 1,000 mph at the equator and rushing at 70,000 mph around the sun.

You will read here of many reverse zodiacs/orbits. Some people have a hard time believing God could move the solar system around the earth. Well, let them. This is the truth, and if they won't believe it, they are responsible. The evidence on this page is reliable.

God has completely hidden these sun miracles. Earth's seasons continued the same in the reverse orbits as in the natural orbit.

Genesis 8:21 "And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
8:22 While earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."

"day and night shall not cease" does not mean God cannot make the day longer, night longer, day shorter, night shorter, or the sun retreat across the sky. The promise was God would not again destroy the earth with water, and earth would continue. God made long days, yet the days continued.

Tilt of earth's orbit to keep earth in the same season.

Here you see the solar system's flat plane of orbit:





Here you see how when the sun drops down 18° the inclination of orbit must drop as well:





We can see God kept all these promises at the same time moving the sun 180° around the earth and a little up or down to keep earth in the same season. Moving the sun around the earth at the same distance means there would be no change to earth's temperature.

However, in a total solar eclipse the temperature can drop more than 5 degrees. Reports from the total eclipse in the US August 21, 2017 are that the temperature noticeably dropped from 29° C to 17° C in five minutes. From where I was managing a coronado telescope for the public, the temperature noticeably cooled during maximum 83% the moon covered the sun. A neighbour reported the temperature in Kelowna dropped six degrees celcius during the 83% solar eclipse. There were very few clouds, and what clouds there were, were very light.

The earth facing away from the sun for 24 hours would normally get very cold. The temperature would need to be compensated for. In sudden darkness birds would turn in for the night, and plants would close up for the night. The sunny side of earth for 24 plus hours would require the sun to dim so as not to overheat the earth. Thus Joshua asked God to dim the sun as well as stop the sun. The sun may have already been travelling west east that day. So Joshua would ask God to slow the sun to make the sun stand still in the middel of the sky. Yao recorded in 2315 BC, the sun miracle of Joseph in Genesis 37, the sun stood still for ten days and the earth was scorched.

Day and night depended on where the sun was and seeing earth continued to rotate day and night continued. Day was when the sun appeared. Thus if the sun moved 180° east generally day/night was 12 hours longer or if the sun moved 180° west day/night was 12 hours shorter. Earth continued to rotate exactly as it would have untouched. Moreover, 12 hours day light of a normal day was a sign of the shortness of life. Nevertheless, there were many days of sun miracles in history with 12 hours more day light, or 36 hours, or 60 hours, or even 84 hours, more day light.

Some will say this is not in the Bible. My response is, Oh yes, it is. Many of these days are in the Bible. And the Chinese record sun miracles on the same day and date as those in the Bible. The model of reverse orbit is in the Bible:

Joshua 10:13b "the sun stood still in the midst of heaven for about a whole day"

This verse literally reads the sun stood still from the half of heaven for about a whole day. This means the sun revolved around the earth as earth rotated from half way back to half way to stand still in the sky for 24 hours and earth's forward momentum carried earth into, and finally out of a reverse orbit of the sun.

Reverse Orbit







The zodiac progresses normally on the left: Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpius, Sagittarius, Capricorn..

The zodiac progresses in reverse on the right: Leo, Cancer, Gemini, Taurus, Aries, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, Sagittarius, Scorpius, Libra, Virgo..

You can see not only does the zodiac progress in reverse in a reverse orbit, but also jumps six zodiac constellations. The inner planets Mercury and Venus and also Mars must also jump six constellations. The Chinese zodiac progresses in reverse perhaps because there were so many reverse orbits the Chinese thought they were normal.

This research would not have been necessary if only people read their Bibles. You cannot pick up the Bible without reading at least some hint of sun miracles. Most people will immediately respond that God stopped the earth from rotating. However, God stopped the sun not the earth. The sun may have risen in the west descending in the east. Thus when Joshua asked God to stop the sun He must have slowed his movement of the sun so it appeared to stand still in the noon day sky.

NASA's Red Light

A form letter from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt MD 20771 (from the internet):

We know nothing of Mr. Harold Hill and in no way can corroborate the "lost day" reference in the article.

The effects of epoch events such as leap year, Babylonian calendar sequential perturbations, etc., are considered in the development of long-term-running computer programs. We are limited somewhat in that many of our calculations terminate with Babylonian calendar events (4,000 years ago), but this has never given programmers any unexpected difficulties.

Although we make use of planetary positions as necessary in the determination of spacecraft orbits on our computers, I have not found that any "astronauts and space scientists at Greenbelt" were involved in the "lost day" story attributed to Mr. Hill.

Thank you for your interest.

Sincerely,

Edward Mason, Chief
Office of Public Affairs

This may be the red light in the Missing Day Story. NASA computers often put up a red light and had to be seen to:

Red light in NASA computer room from 50 years NASA.

Yes, NASA made use of planetary positions. Yes, they were going back 4,000 years. All they would have to do was open the Chinese Classics and come to this record of king Wan's dream in Spring. Right away the computer would put up a red light that the sun cannot be in Leo in Spring! The six day moon directly above and the conjunction of the five planets in the west in Fang/Libra at sunset could not have been seen with the sun in Pisces. This five planet conjunction in Fang/Libra meant the sun was in Leo which is 180° from the sun in Pisces in January/February of the Chinese spring. Some have noted the discrepancy and tried to explain it away. Perhaps they misnamed Fall, Spring! This cannot be explained away.

Put this on record and take note: king Wan's dream gives the calculations of the Missing Day of Joshua as described in the Missing Day Story. The Chinese Spring was always counted with the lunar month in January/February/March.

Earth's normal orbit makes the sun appear in Pisces in spring. A few thousand years ago the sun was in Airies in Spring. Now it is moving from Pisces to Aquarius. Thus the song the age of Aquarius.

This record of king Wan's dream was all that was needed to uncover Joshua's long day of 24 hours and 40 minutes.

Chinese Spring was calculated 45 days before the Spring equinox, April 2, 1240 BC, 90 days marking the total season. A computer would state the obvious: the sun had been in Virgo at sunset and moved 180° to Pisces, standing still below the horizon, then rising a little in the west over a 12 hour period. Thus king Wan was clothed with the sun and the moon. Jupiter and Saturn were supposed to have been in Aries and Taurus 1240 BC. Taurus is 180° away from Fang/Libra! Mercury is one of these five planets depicted in Fang/Libra. Mercury orbits very close to the sun. How could Mercury be in Fang/Libra 180° away from the sun in Pisces and still be next to the sun? No way! No way could Mercury be in conjunction with the other planets in Scorpio.

Together with a six day moon this record seems to depict the planets in the west just below the moon and just above the sun at sunset.

A computer service technician from NASA who started work just after the Missing Day Story came out emailed me from a newsgroup in about 2000 that these computers often put up a red light and had to be seen to. He often wondered what could have triggered the red light perhaps in the same room he worked only a few years previous. He had heard of the missing day story in 1969 and when he came to work for Nasa in 1970 he wondered what were the real calculations.

Yigael Yadin estimated Hazor was burned 1266 - 1233 BC while doing excavations there in 1958 and 1968. All the spacemen would have to do is look for a five planet conjunction at sunset for this period. The second long day of Joshua at Merom February 15, 1240 BC when Joshua chased the Midianites into Syria as far as Sidon which was more distance travelling than 12 hours or 6 hours of day light would allow.

This sun miracle in February was king Wan's dream occurring at the same time as the battle of Merom. They may have connected king Wan's dream to the year of Joshua's long day 1241 BC/1240 BC. Then the computer would tell them this conjunction in the first month of the Chinese spring and on the 6th day of the moon and be in Aries and Taurus could only be February 15, 1240 BC. Most likely the planets were moved out of the way of the sun as it moved 180°. Thus the five planets appeared in conjunction in Fang/Scorpio when the stars appeared. The sun sets at 5 PM in February 7. So, the sun standing still 90° away at noon in Israel would mean a starry night in China, till the sun retreated 10°.

Next they would see the conjunction was recorded in Fang/Scorpio 180° away, and right away realize the five planets had moved 180° with the sun from Fang/Scorpio. With the sun 180° away they would discover the reverse orbit. Once they discovered the reverse orbit, they would discover earth must speed up 48 hours a year, 24 hours in a half orbit.

While they were looking at Assyrian Omens they would find the omen:

An Assyrian Omen: "If in Adar the sun stands still in the middle of noontime: the land will experience siege (and) misery."

Adar is January/February. February 15, 1240 BC is probably when the sun stood still at noon time for Joshua at Merom in Joshua 11, and perhaps Judges 4 and 5; and this be king Wan's dream. Then the sun may have stood still at Gibeon for Joshua's long day August 24, 1241 BC. Then the sun must return on the same date one year later after the fall of Jericho February 17, 1241 BC at the battle of Merom February 15, 1240 BC where there was siege and misery. The day February 15, 1240 BC could have lasted 12 hours longer and Joshua's long day August 24, 1241 BC, 23:20 hours longer. Thus the sun may have stood still when it returned as well when Joshua chased the Midianites into Syria. And thus it became an Assyrian omen.

And thus NASA had all the records it needed to find the missing day and the remaining missing 40 minutes with the help of the Bible. These were scientists on a mission. All they were looking for is anything astronomical. The next book after Joshua is Judges. Robert G. Boling wrote that Joshua and Judges began at the same time. That Judges would cover about a one hundred year period. Their day was not done till the 40 minutes were found. Once it was found they did not need to record their findings. Their mission was to find problems to the space program. And since this problem had been solved and posed no risk to the space program it did not need to be reported.

A large heavy pendulum when swinging, will move back and forth in a line that rotates 360° in 24 hours. Thus earth did not stop rotating when God made the sun to stand still for Joshua. A pendulum that day would also rotate 360° actually standing still in the same line, earth moving underneath.

Research on exo planet solar systems far from ours, show Ch'aoutic behaviour from the gravity tugs of the planets on each other. Our solar system is much more stable and thus is unusual. Nevertheless, God must have moved the sun around the earth many times.

Buzz Aldrin "We went all the way from Earth to the Moon and back to Earth within a half a second of the time allotted by our flight plan."

Movements in space can be precisely calculated. Taiwan can track and move their satellites to a pin point of a dime. For God to hide these movements from science, God must keep earth in the reverse orbit exactly as in earth's normal orbit. The movents of the sun and planets also must have been very precise.

The other part to consider is the tens of millions of tons of energy to instantly move the sun upwards of 40 million miles per hour. Only God has that power and skill.

Nevertheless, astronauts at the International Space Station have said moving tons of equipment in space is like moving a suitcase. God moving the sun through space not only is the only solution, it is a very practical solution.

On Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision: "More recently, the absence of supporting material in ice core studies (such as the Greenland Dye-3 and Vostok cores), bristlecone pine tree ring data, Swedish clay varves, and many hundreds of cores taken from ocean and lake sediments from all over the world has ruled out any basis for the proposition of a global catastrophe of the proposed dimension within the Late Holocene age."

The model presented here leaves no evidence. The fact no evidence has been found just means God is that smart and that powerful. This should give us full faith in God.

Habakkuk 3:4 "And his brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power."
