Joshua's Long Day

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.

Jesus' birth most likely was September 12, 7 BC, when the sun was in Virgo. Thus, also, on Joshua's long day perhaps August 24, 1241 BC, the sun would appear in Virgo. Jesus would be born in the month sheep are bred in Bethlehem in September. Thus, the significance of Virgo, Jesus born of a virgin. Thus all these sun miracles point to Jesus.

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."

John 1:7 "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin."

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.
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."

The five kings were hung on crosses. Jesus was hung on a cross. The five kings were put in a cave. Jesus was laid in the tomb. Thus, the connection of walking in the light as the arrows walked in light on Joshua's long day, and the connection to the blood of Jesus that cleanses us from all sin.

Israel should know God was moving the sun with earth's rotation, 360° through the zodiac. They also may know the sun was so far away that for the sun to stand still in the sky with earth's rotation, the sun must travel near the speed of light. That is, God must move the sun at 1/30th the speed of light = "at the light of thine arrows they went".

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 on earth.

Over perhaps a dozen 360° circles of the sun around earth over thousands of years, in Old Testament times, of one hour each = 12 hours the sun is younger than the earth. The sun standing still in the sky at 1/30 the speed of light for 24 hours would add up to a few minutes of slowed time on the sun. Although, at 1/30th the speed of light Relativity means only minutes of lost time, over many of these sun miracles even minutes add up. Thus, the darkness at the fall of Jerusalem September 7, 591 BC and the darkness when Jesus was on the cross at noon April 3, 33 AD must both be the sun darkened in its going forth (at the speed of light). In total, the sun could be about 12 hours, 12 times one hour, 12 times the sun was darkened, the sun 12 years younger than the earth.

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.

2 Chronicles 8:1 "And it came to pass at the end of twenty years, wherein Solomon had built the house of the LORD, and his own house,"

2 Chronicles 8:16 "Now all the work of Solomon was prepared unto the day of the foundation of the house of the LORD, and until it was finished. So the house of the LORD was perfected."

This 20th year from 1041 BC = 1021 BC = 1000 years to 21 BC which began the last 50 year jubile which Jesus fulfilled when he read Isaiah 61 in Luke 4 September 29 AD.

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.

A prayer of Moses:

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.

No solar eclipses occur in China in Te-sin's 22nd year = 1207 BC or within plus or minus three years. There is one for January 21, 1210 BC for day 31 of cycle 60 but this is not day one of cycle sixty. The red bird can only mean the phoenix, and thus this 22nd year of Te-sin on day one can only mean a sun miracle.

The total solar eclipse of October 30, 1207 BC in Israel was not just before Merneptah's stela that stated Israel was a widow and wasted, because Merneptah died in April 5 of 1281 BC. Thus the total solar eclipse of October 30, 1207 BC had nothing to do with Joshua's long day of August 24, 1241 BC. Joshua's long day states a Hebrew word the sun was silent or dimmed. However, the meaning of the word in the context means to stand still in the sky.

Chinese emperor Wending reigned 15 years from 1251 BC. His 12th year was king Wan's first year, king Wan's dream February 15, 1240 BC. His 15th year would be 1238 BC. Te-sin's 22nd year must be 1207 BC.

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 6:3 "The shepherds with their flocks shall come unto her; they shall pitch their tents against her round about; they shall feed every one in his place.
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.
6:5 Arise, and let us go by night, and let us destroy her palaces."

The shepherds with their flocks = the birth of Jesus, September 12, 7 BC, when the shepherds were watching the sheep during breeding season in Bethlehem.

The night may equal one hour of darkness at noon = the darkness at noon when Jesus was on the cross.

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.

If the sun disappeared it would take 8 minutes = the time for light or gravity to reach the earth, for earth to not feel the gravity pull of the sun and continue in a straight line not an orbit. If the sun was moved around the earth, the gravity pull would still be there, earth would continue forward. However, this forward momentum would have to be carefully controlled so as to not draw closer to the sun. After the sun had moved 180° earth would flow into a reverse orbit of the sun. In this reverse orbit earth must be carefully controlled to keep the same orbit as it normally would have for the duration of the one or more years of reverse orbit.

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,"

Isaiah 24:23 "Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously."

Jeremiah 15:9 "She that hath borne seven languisheth: she hath given up the ghost; her sun is gone down while it was yet day: she hath been ashamed and confounded: and the residue of them will I deliver to the sword before their enemies, saith the LORD."

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)
Heji, 21348

Crack-making on day yiwei [32]: on this day we should perform the you-ritual to the Dipper and to the fa. Use this.
Heji, 32253

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.

Josephus wrote of his journey to Rome that equals Paul's journey to Rome: The shipwrecks of Josephus and Paul

Luke 7:28 "For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he."

Josephus was very favourably impressed by John the Baptist. Jesus took the least place to go to the cross for us. And not that John the Baptist had sinned, but Jesus took our sins.

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,"

Jehoiachin was a captive from 614 BC. Thus, this same 611 BC was his fifth year.

"His first year was Kwei-maou (40th of cycle 60 = 617 BC). In his sixth year (611 BC), a comet entered the Great Bear (Northern Bushel); and the king died."

The comet may be a part of a sun miracle to mark the captivity.

King K'wang, "His first year was ke-yew (46th of cycle 60 = 611 BC)"
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.164

"In his sixth year, duke Ching Ch'uen of Tsin, with some of the northern hordes, attacked Ts'in, and captured a spy, whom they put to death in the market place of Keang, and who came to life again six days after."

Jeremiah 28:1 "And it came to pass the same year, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the fourth year, and in the fifth month, that Hananiah the son of Azur the prophet, which was of Gibeon, spake unto me in the house of the LORD, in the presence of the priests and of all the people, saying,
28:2 Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying, I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon.
28:3 Within two full years will I bring again into this place all the vessels of the LORD'S house, that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took away from this place, and carried them to Babylon:"

The fourth year of Zedekiah = the sixth year of King Ting = 599 BC. Perhaps this spy in China came to life by a miracle at the same time as a sun miracle.

Malachi 4:2 "But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings;"

The 30th year of the 50 year jubile from the year of Joshua's long day 1241 BC was this 611 BC. The Chinese often changed their emperors when there was a sun miracle.

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.

From Noah's flood in 3307 BC to Abraham born 2607 BC are 700 years.

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

"Resistance to a census in Israel by Herod could have delayed its implementation by for years, making a well-documented census in 7 BC a likely candidate."
Centenial Collector's Edition, The Birth of Jesus, Census ordered by Caesar Augustus, p.43

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.

Both the lunar eclipse of September 23, 5 BC recorded by Josephus in the time of Herod who died April 1, 4 BC, and the partial lunar eclipse of Aprl 3, 33 AD to mark Jesus' crucifixion "give Jesus a longer life span than most authorities believe he actually had."
Moon Shadow, The Story of the Total Eclipse, p.73

Nevertheless, the dates found here point to Jesus living from September 12, 7 BC to April 3, 33 AD.

Yao's long day

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.

Even from Adam in year 800 Armenian sothis = 4568 BC to Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD = 4600 years = 23 X 200 years.

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.

"In his (emperor Kin) 8th year, there was an inauspicious portent in the sky; - ten suns appeared together. In that year the emperor died."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.124

The meaning of the ten suns is that the sun stood still in the sky for ten days, or 10 X 12 hours.

That year emperor K'ung-Kea came to the throne in the 6th of cycle 60 = 1731 BC. The 49 year jubile to Jesus' crucifixion, April 3, 33 AD, was in 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. 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."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.154

From 852 BC, his 13th year = 840 BC and a sun miracle that = 400 years from Joshua's long day in 1241 BC that = the first year of the King of Judah Azariah = 38 years of reign = the age of Jesus. Usually only one person can be King. Thus, instead of a co-reign, the king's reigns may run in sequence, and thus fill the missing 120 years.

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. I believe that King David that wrote this psalm 19 knew that earth rotated, not the sun revolved, each day. David would know there were exceptional days when God moved the sun around the earth. David would know that many times these exceptional days of sun miracles pointed to the birth, life, and crucifixion of God's Son because he knew God promised the Christ would come from his lineage.

When Joshua asked God to stop the sun, the sun probably was traveling west to east. God may have made the sun rise in the west that night at the middle watch of Gideon in Judges 7 the same day of Joshua's long day. Thus, Joshua knew God was moving the sun and asked God to stop the sun at the noon position in the middle of the sky. Thus both Joshua and David must have known earth rotates each day and the sun is already standing still.

Many people in Bible times in Bible lands would understand that earth rotates everyday and not the sun revolve around the earth.

Psalm 18:15 "Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils."

This psalm of David speaks of sun miracles. The foundations of the world may apply to earth's orbit, zodiac, around the sun. The more things change, the more they remain the same. Thus, as Israel observed these many sun miracles they would come to understand earth rotates each day, not the sun revolves. Because when God moved the sun this was exceptional, earth must rotate.

Thus, this Psalm 19 and others declare God's power when God moved the sun around the earth.

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

The four mountains = the four valleys He and Ho were sent to inorder to determine the four seasons after the sun miracle of Yaou April 1, 2315 BC.

33 years from Shun's first year in 2222 BC was this sun miracle about 2191 BC in the co-reign of Yu and Shun. 2222 BC = the jubile of 50 years in 29 AD from 22 BC. 2191 BC = the jubile of 50 years from Joshua's conquest 1191 BC. 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."

"maketh his sun to rise" to me means Jesus did not say the sun moves around the earth each day. To make to rise should be understood to cause the earth to rotate 360° each day.

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.

2 Timothy 1:10 "But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:"

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.

Enoch born 300 Armenian sothis = 3607 BC, 57 years to Methuselah, 57 years to Lamech, 182 years of life to Armenian sothis year 595 = 3312 BC. Then Lamech be 50 when he had Noah about 3440 BC, so Noah be about 40 when he had Shem, who was 102 in 3305 BC when he left the ark.

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.

There was a partial solar eclipse seen in Egypt, April 14, 1281 BC:





Numbers 33:7 "And they removed from Etham, and turned again unto Pihahiroth, which is before Baalzephon: and they pitched before Migdol.
33:8 And they departed from before Pihahiroth, and passed through the midst of the sea into the wilderness

Baalzephon = cold, or Sun = Lord and zephon = dark. Zephon like typhon = storm. Perhaps there was this partial solar eclipse at the crossing of the Reed Sea early in the morning as depicted. Then, the temperature would drop several degrees Celcius.

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.

The date May 2 may be from 1204 BC.

Merneptah reigned 10 years, Ramses II reigned 66 years supposedly from 1279 BC - 76 = 1203 BC. One year different = the death of Merneptah in 1204 BC.

May 2 was the new moon in 1204 BC. Merneptah died in 1281 BC (76 years to 1205 BC). Then, the crossing of the Reed/Red Sea may be the new moon, April 14, 1281 BC.

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.

There was a partial solar eclipse, 70%, at noon, June 15, 1284 BC.

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.

Caesar's Comet was known to ancient writers as the Sidus Iulium ("Julian Star") or Caesaris astrum ("Star of Caesar"). The bright, daylight-visible comet appeared suddenly during the festival known as the Ludi Victoriae Caesaris – for which the 45 BC iteration was long considered to have been held in the month of September. According to Suetonius, as celebrations were getting underway, "a comet shone for seven successive days, rising about the eleventh hour, and was believed to be the soul of Caesar."

Rising the 11th hour = 6 PM = the sun setting in the west, and the comet passing overhead, above Bethlehem, at midnight 38 years before Jesus was born September 12, 7 BC. Jesus lived 38 years to April 3, 33 AD.

"One of the clearest and earliest correlations of Caesar to a comet occurred during the Secular Games of 17 BC"

Again, 17 BC was the 49 year jubile to Jesus' sacrifice April 3, 33 AD. Thus, there may also be an astronomical event in 17 BC too.

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. Moreover, the background stars = zodiac = earth in a reverse orbit = the same zodiac sign in July but earth progressing in reverse. 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 1124 BC, Samuel would be 83 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.

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. Nevertheless, the date of this destruction at the Dead Sea is before 2300 BC. Abraham was 99 years old in 2508 BC when Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed.

"All sites were near the Dead Sea with evidence of burning and traces of sulfur. However, according to Thomas Shaub, who dug at Bab ehd Dhura, Numeira was destroyed in 2600 BC, at a different time period than Bab ehd Dhura, 2350 BC - 2067 BC."

Thus, if this destruction at the Dead Sea is one and the same, it occurred at the same time. Then there is only one date for the destruction of Sodom, 2508 BC.

Thus, 2600 BC is 100 years too early and 2350 BC is 150 years to recent. The flood that destroyed the Botai people in Kazakhstan is dated to 3100 BC. Neverthless, if this event was Noah's flood, likewise the correct date may be 200 years further back = 3307 BC in keeping with the Armenian sothis year 600.

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 dog days of summer "brings such killing", when Sirius would first appear July 16. They were the unlucky five days of new year. The time of war often was in August/September = Joshua's long day August 24, 1241 BC.

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.

King Tin "His first year was yih-maou (52d of cycle 60 = 605 BC)
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.164

The Chinese often changed their emperors on the omen of a sun miracle.

Thus earth flow into and out of the reverse orbit on the anniversary date November 16, 605 BC.

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.

Pharaoh Seti I may have reigned 11 years not 15 years. Thus, the pharaohs reigns before be 4 years later. Then pharaoh Akhu En Aten may have reigned 76 years back, not back from 1341 BC to 1417 BC, but 76 years back to 1414 BC. Then, Akhu En Aten may have reigned the 17 years from 1430 BC to 1413 BC.

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.

"there are no dates recorded for Seti I after his Year 11 Gebel Barkal stela" Wikipedia
Back from pharaoh Merneptah 1281 ten years, Ramses II 66 years = 1357 BC, back 11 years to pharaoh Seti I first year = 1368 BC = 1400 years to Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD. There may have been a sun miracle in 1368 BC that was taken as an omen to depose pharaoh Ramses 1. Ramses means Ra bore him = the sun bore him. Thus a sun miracle in 1368 BC may begin the eleven year reign of 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. 24 hours 40 minutes plus 23 hours 20 minutes = 48 hours = the sped up earth orbit to = the same 365 day year in reverse.

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. The Exodus has been correctly dated to 1280 BC for many years. 40 years later was Joshua's long day summer of 1241 BC. All the spacemen would have to do is look for king Wan's first year. King Wan's 35th year was recorded at the lunar eclipse, day 13 of cycle 60, of September 23, 1205 BC = king Wan's first year spring of 1240 BC. 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. To produce the planetary conjunction the planets would be 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.

So, the sun standing still 90° away at noon in Israel would mean a starry night in China, till the sun retreated 10° in the west = the missing 40 minutes. Thus the sun moved 190° that is 10° more than 180°. That is, the sun rose 10° briefly in the west 12 hours later on China.

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 in one half of a year.

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. Even God must have moved the sun at the speed of light for the "sun to go down at noon". Time stops at the speed of light. Time stops = no sun light. 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."
Wikipedia

The model presented here leaves no evidence, not even any net missing time. 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."



In consideration of all these things, it reminds us of the spiritual truth that God will move heaven and earth to save one soul. How about you?

If you want an unwavering Faith that questions not, email me, Andrew Bennett: sunnyokanagan@telus.net

Science renders more questions than it answers. Faith answers all things.

Sun miracles in the New Testament

You can see in this zodiac from the Beth Alpha Synagogue below, 600 AD. There are many zodiacs in ancient Israel synagogues, that the fish of Pisces face both directions perhaps from Old Testament tradition. This may indicate the Israelites were familiar with earth flowing into a reverse orbit of the sun. Thus for half a year or a year they would experience the zodiac progressing in reverse. This may have happened as often as every seven years. They would be very conscious this was connected to the sun miracles God performed for their benefit. You can see the chariot of the sun in the middle. The sun and chariot were not to be depicted in the synagogues of Israel.

Just before Augustus Caesar's death in August 19, 14 AD, also about when the High Priest Annas was replaced:

"Thus, the sun suffered a total eclipse and most of the sky seemed to be on fire; glowing embers appeared to be falling from it and blood-red comets were seen."
Dio Cassius, Book LVI p.67

This same 14 AD would be the 23rd year from Jesus' birth in 7 BC. Every 23 years the 52 weeks = 364 day calendar started the same day as the lunar 12 X 29.5 = 354 day calendar. There was a cycle of 23 years, such as from Jacob entering Egypt in year 2307 = 23 X 100 years to Jesus' birth in 7 BC.

Julius Caesar died on the Ides of March, the full moon when also was the Passover in Israel in 44 BC. 44 BC was 37 years before Jesus' birth in 7 BC. Thus there may have been a sun miracle at that passover in 44 BC to point to Jesus' life of 38 years and his sacrifice in April 3, 33 AD. Thus Jesus' birth 38 years later in 7 BC. Julius Caesar's wife Cornelia died in 68 BC. There could have been a sun miracle in 68 BC = 100 years before Jesus' sacrifice that was an omen preceding her death.

October 6, 68 BC, Lucius Lucullus defeats Tigranes II of Armenia in the Battle of Artaxata.
Wikipedia

Tigranes' army panicked and fled. Perhaps there was an omen of a sun miracle for their panic. Similarily, the Spartans let the Persians of Xerxes escape because of the omen of a partial solar eclipse in Greece, September 12, 470 BC.

Back one half orbit, 187 days, from this October 6 is April 1, 68 BC, the full moon and Passover. Thus, there may have been a sun miracle 100 years before Jesus' crucifixion, April 3, 33 AD.

Coins from this time depict a star by Julius Caesar. Later the star was replaced by a comet. If the sun moved to the other side of earth at the passover in spring, then the bright star of Vega would appear overhead at midnight. The magnitude level of the sun and stars is supposed to start with Vega at zero magnitude. Thus anything brighter is - negative magnitude and anything dimmer is + positive magnitude. The sun would normally be in Vega at spring. Thus this star by Julius Caesar may be Vega.

Annas became High Priest, in 6 AD, when Jesus was 12 years old: Born in September 12, 7 BC, Jesus would be 12 in 6 AD:

Luke 2:42 "And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.
2:43 And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.
2:44 But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day's journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.
2:45 And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.
2:48 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.
2:47 And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
2:48 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
2:49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?"

There was no solar eclipse visible then. If the sun was red, comets would appear red too. Or perhaps these blood red comets were phoenixes. The morning star may be the phoenix pulling the sun.

The sudden and perhaps bright sunrise of Gideon may have been a type of the resurrection morning. Pilate is said to have wrote Caesar Tiberius. This letter was actually written according to Bible prophesy, not by Pilate. However, the pattern of sun miracles in the Bible most probably occurred in Jesus' lifetime:

"And at the third hour of the night the sun appeared more luminous than it had ever shone, lighting up the whole hemisphere."

This could begin a second half reverse orbit at Jesus' resurrection in the same way as for Gideon.

There may have been a sun miracle to begin Jesus' ministry in Luke 4, August 28, 29 AD or September 9, 29 AD. In this 29 AD: "Empeor Guangwu of Han, 5th year of the Jianwu reign period. A guest star trespassed against YUZUO extremely closely."
East Asian Archaeology, p.130.

YUZUO is the imperial throne near the Big Dipper, near Arcturus and Virgo. A sun miracle at the start of the jubile, either August 28, 29 AD or September 9, 29 AD, would mean the Big Dipper when normally pointing down at midnight in summer would point up at midnight the following summer night. The handle of the Big Dipper points to Arcturus. Then Arcturus would passoverhead at midnight in August/September. A sun miracle then would be seen as a threat to the imperial throne, an occasion for a revolution. Guangwu became emperor in 25 AD and from 27 AD to 36 AD - the period looked at here - he waged war with various warlords. Sun miracles often triggered revolution in China. So he would be sensitive to a sign from heaven that could cause rebellion against him that could overthrow his kingdom. Such as this one very nearly did.

John 1:5 "And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe."

John 1:26 "John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;
1:27 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.
1:28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.
1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world."

This would be at the time of the Passover in spring of 29 AD.

The Pharisees may have come to John the Baptist on the Sabbath the first of Nissan, March 5, 29 AD. Then the Passover, Saturday, March 19, 29 AD. Then 187 days from the new moon March 7, 29 AD is half an orbit and is Yom Kippur, the jubile, September 9, 29 AD. (The captivity was September 7, 591 BC the seventh day of the seventh month) Then there may have been a sun miracle a year before, full 365 day orbit before, perhaps September 7, 28 AD on the first day of the seventh month. Jesus began to be about 30 or rather 35 years of age in Luke, probably September 14, 29 AD.

Jesus may have been born on the 17th day of the 7th month = September 13, 7 BC. Then his birthday would be September 15, 29 AD the 17th day of the 7th month; when he began to be 35 years of age. Perhaps Rosh Hashanah August 28, 29 AD, or Yom Kippur Friday September 9, 29 AD, be the day Jesus read from Isaiah 61 to fulfill the beginning of the 50 year jubile.

Then the Gospels start with Jesus when he began to be about 30, perhaps he began to be 35, after he was baptized, September 15, 29 AD = the date of Jesus' birth September 12, 7 BC. This would mean Jesus' ministry was three and a half years as it is by tradition. Then Jesus' birthday in 28 AD before Jesus began his ministry would be for the 17th day of the seventh month, August 27, and the record for Joshua's long day August 24, 1241 BC about the same time in the eighth month. Jesus real name was Joshua.

Luke 4:17 "And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
4:19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
4:20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
4:21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears."

From the same time Jesus counted three and a half years to his crucifixion, April 3, 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;"

John 5:1 "After this there was the feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem."

John 6:4 "And the Passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh."

A whole year may have passed between John 5 and John 6, thus making Jesus' ministry three and a half years long.

Jesus' birth must have been the 17th of Tishri, the seventh month, September 12, 7 BC.

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

September 15, 3307 BC. This must have foretold the birth of Christ on September 12, 7 BC.

If there was a sun miracle September 9, 29 AD, then there may have been a sun miracle perhaps when John baptized Jesus at the near time of the Passover, perhaps the Saturday on the first of Nissan, March 5, 29 AD. Then the Passover March 19, 29 AD. Probably there was a sun miracle Friday September 9, 29 AD to mark the beginning of Jesus' ministry. This may be in a series of sun miracles over three years with sun miracles on the half orbit dates February/March as well August/September. Rosh Hashanah, the blowing of trumpets, August 28, 29 AD may be when Jesus spoke from Isaiah 61 in Luke 4. Thus the Gospel of John probably begins in the spring of 29 AD with Jesus when he began to be 35 years old in autumn = September 15, 29 AD "about 30 years old." = the 30th decade.

Then John 2 and the Passover, then chapter 4 when Jesus stood up to speak from Isaiah 61, Rosh Hashanah, August 28, 29 AD or Yom Kippur, Friday, September 9, 29 AD. Jesus spoke on the Sabbath. Thus Friday evening September 9, 29 AD is more probable. This Chinese record from Emperor Guang of Han may be the sun miracle in China in 29 AD. This would give three and a half years to Jesus' crucifixion. Then this sun miracle in August/September would make the Big Dipper and Arcturus point straight up at midnight. There were four passovers in the Gospels if the feast in John 5 is counted. "the feast" in John 5 can only mean "the Passover".

Then the first passover of Jesus' ministry may have been March 19, 29 AD. The Passover at the lunar eclipse the night Jesus was crucified may have been +84 more hours long, a seven night, the sabbaton, 7 X 12 hours longer, April 3, 33 AD. Even +36 more hours = 3 X 180° = 72 hours from the 36 hours of 6 PM Friday to 6 AM Sunday. And thus Jesus would be in the heart of the earth three days of 24 hours = 72 hours.

Perhaps the sun would flow out of the half reverse orbit on March 5, 29 AD. We need two stand alone winter half reverse orbits, without summer half reverse orbits, giving 30 minutes missing time each to account for the one hour of darkness when Jesus was on the cross. Thus if we start with a sun miracle August 28, 29 AD, by the time of Jesus' crucifixion and hour of darkness we may have the two fall/winter half orbits of 30 minutes missing time each. Thus this would cancel out the hour of elapsed time the sun was darkened, or rather revolved around the earth at the speed of light. Thus time would stop on the sun for one hour and time continue on earth for one hour leaving no net missing time. The years of Jesus' ministry appear to be full of sun miracles in summer and winter. Then the result would be no net missing time at all.

Then from August 24, 1241 BC are 50 year jubiles to August 28, 29 AD, less the 70 years captivity. Actually, the first jublile was August/September 1192 BC at the end of the 49th year.

There were 49 year jubile cycles and 50 year jubile cycles. There was a 50th jubile 100 years after Moses destroyed Heshbon, not 300 years in 1141 BC in Jephthah's day: Judges 11:26 "While Israel dwelt in Heshbon ... three hundred years?" There was a 49th year in 1095 BC when David was 17, perhaps when he faced Goliath. (Then there was 17 more years to when David became king of Israel) Because David lived to 1043 BC to be 70 years old, thus was 17 in 1095 BC. However, David may have been about 20.

Samuel 17:4 "Then a champion named Goliath, who was from Gath, came out of the Philistine camp. His height was four cubits and a span."
The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible, p.229

The Septuagint states his height was five cubits and a span, the Masoretic text 1000 AD from Babylon (King James) states his height was six cubits and a span. The average Israelite was five feet tall, to be exact five foot one inch. Thus, even Goliath at four cubits and a span = six foot six, was one and a half feet taller. Thus you can see how the text was changed to become a tall story.

Likewise, the period of the Judges were changed to 450 years, 480 years and 300 years. This accommodated the series of Judges one after another. Whereas, most of the Judges reigned at the same time. Thus the period of Judges was 117 years from 1241 BC to 1124 BC.

1 Kings 6:1 "And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of the LORD."

This should be 240 years not 480 years.

Judges 11:26 "While Israel dwelt in Heshbon and her towns, and in Aroer and her towns, and in all the cities that be along by the coasts of Arnon, three hundred years? why therefore did ye not recover them within that time?"

This should be 90 or 100 years not 300 years.

Or this 300 years refers to the period of Kings about 930 BC = 300 years from 1241 BC:

2 Kings 3:5 "But it came to pass, when Ahab was dead, that the king of Moab rebelled against the king of Israel."

Simularily, the 430th year of the Exodus was used to give just four generations from Jacob. When Jacob actually entered Egypt in the 430th sothis year = 2307 BC. And there were 40 generations, not four, in the 1026 years to the Exodus in 1281 BC at the end of the 1460 sothis calendar. So rather than write genealogies 40 generations long, the scribes redid the scriptures.

Perhaps in the time of the kingdom of David:

"In his, Ch'aou's, 14th year, in the summer, in the 4th month, the regular stars were invisible."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.149

Job 3:9 "Let the stars of the twilight thereof be dark; let it look for light, but have none; neither let it see the dawning of the day:"

The fourth month from spring should be about June. The fourth month of summer should be about September = about the season of Jesus' birth. If God moved the sun to the other side of earth, the other half of heaven would appear. Thus, the sun would appear 180° away, and those stars behind the sun would be invisible during the day. Also, the stars that regularily appeared in that season would opposite. Not only opposite, but with earth in a reverse orbit of the sun, the stars would advance from the west instead of disappearing in the west.

From Wu, 1174 BC, Ch'ing 1168 BC, Kang 1132 BC - 1107 BC, Ch'aou's 14th year = 1094 BC. The 49 year jubile from Joshua in 1241 BC was 1094 BC when David was 20, about the time David slew Goliath. Thus, perhaps a sun miracle that day, a long day the sun stand still at noon Israel, for Israel to get the victory = the same 14th year of emperor Ch'aou = twilight for 12 hours, or multiples of 12 hours, and the stars not appear in China. David born 1114 BC 70 years to 1044 BC. David would be 7 years old in 1107 BC = 1100 years to Jesus' birth in 7 BC. Thus, 1045 BC was 38 years to 1007 BC, also pointing to Jesus' life. David would be 20 in 1094 BC, a youth.

The regular stars may not appear in China because by night fall on China the sun would be on the other side of the earth, and the stars that would first appear be 180° away from what stars appeared the night before = not the regular stars. Psalm 18 of David describes a sun miracle perhaps the day God delivered him from Saul. There is a gap of 120 years of Chinese history in this time. Nevertheless, Chinese emperors consecutively to Ch'aou's 14th year is 1094 BC. The missing 120 years may be after Ch'aou.

Numbers 1:3 "From twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel: thou and Aaron shall number them by their armies."

Thus for David to not yet be numbered to be a soldier he should be about 20 years old when he fought Goliath.

There was a 49th year in 1046 BC about when David passed on the plans for the temple to Solomon. There was a 49th year jubile at king David's death in 1044 BC. Jesus was crucified in the 49 year jubile in 33 AD. Jesus was 38 years old when he was crucified the King of Israel - the sign Pilate wrote above Jesus' cross. David began to reign over all Israel when he was 38 years old.

There was a 50th jubile in 1041 BC, the 240th year since the Exodus, when Solomon began to build the temple. There was a 49 year jubile in 899 BC about when Joash became King.

"In his, King Kung, 9th year, in the spring, in the first month, on the day ting-hae (24th of cycle), the king made Leang, the recorder of the Interior, convey a Charge to Ts'een, baron of Maou."

February 20, 899 BC, the 9th year from 907 BC = 900 years before Jesus' birth in 7 BC, was the new moon and first month of spring. Spring in China was usually counted from February.

1 Kings 22:19 "And he said, Hear thou therefore the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left.
22:20 And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner."

Ahab died in 922 BC after a reign of 22 years from 943 BC at Asa's 38th year. Thus, at Asa's 38th year = the 38 and a half years of Jesus' perfect life.

37 and 38 years appear often in the Bible, the 38 years of Jesus' life.

Jeremiah 52:31 "And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, in the five and twentieth day of the month, that Evilmerodach king of Babylon in the first year of his reign lifted up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah, and brought him forth out of prison,"

The solar eclipse of April 21, 899 BC was correctly recorded as a Charge from the king on day 24 of cycle 60.

However, February is Chinese spring. Then the event on day 24 of cycle 60 would be a new moon in February, and rather a sun miracle than a naturally occurring solar eclipse.

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."

About this 914 BC to 907 BC would be the seven years of famine of Elisha. Sometimes famines were marked by sun miracles, such as the seven years of plenty, and seven years of famine in Egypt. = the fulfillment of Joseph's second dream.

"Note: the holder of the time-jar, did not attend to his duty."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.52

This King E reigned from 894 BC to 868 BC. A sun miracle in 868 BC in spring could point to Jesus' sacrifice April 3, 33 AD. 868 BC to 33 AD = 900 years. The holder of the time-jar, sand clock? would not tell the right time that day by 12 or more hours. Elijah appears about 944 BC at the time of Ahab. Jehoash became king of Israel 868 BC and reigned 16 years. Thus, Elisha may be a prophet from about 930 BC to 868 BC and further, but died before Jehoash died in 850 BC.

2 Kings 7:5 "And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the camp of the Syrians: and when they were come to the uttermost part of the camp of Syria, behold, there was no man there.
7:6 For the Lord had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us.
7:7 Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses, even the camp as it was, and fled for their life."

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.
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 return of the year is new years in the seventh month in September. There often were sun miracles in the spring, then half an orbit later in the fall.

The sun may move 180° to the other side of the earth, and earth flow into a reverse orbit of the sun. Then half an orbit later, the sun move back inorder earth to flow out of the reverse orbit. The next day the sun may move 180° again, and earth flow into the reverse orbit. Then one full year later, such as the return of the year in the seventh month of September, the sun move 180° back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit. September was often a time of war. Thus in September there could be a long day to fight and gain the victory.

Elisha appears to have died about the time of Amaziah's first year. This would be about 868 BC when emperor Heaou began his reign in spring = 900 years to Jesus' sacrifice April 3, 33 AD.

2 Kings 13:20 "And Elisha died, and they buried him. And the bands of the Moabites invaded the land at the coming in of the year."

2 Kings 14:1 "In the second year of Joash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel reigned Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah."

There was a 49th year jubile in 752 BC when Rome was founded in spring at the time of a solar eclipse.

2 Chronicles 26:16 "But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the LORD his God, and went into the temple of the LORD to burn incense upon the altar of incense."

Uzziah must have died about 750 BC. Then his sin may have been a few years previous. By tradition there was an earthquake when Uzziah sinned. If an earthquake, God may have moved the sun, and that produced the earthquake.

There was no solar eclipse then. Then the eclipse may be the sun miracle of Amos 8:9. There was a 49th year jubile the year the sun retreated ten steps for Hezekiah in 703 BC. There was a 49th year jubile in 605 BC, when Nebuchadnezzar came to Jerusalem:

2 Kings 24:1 "In his days Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up, and Jehoiakim became his servant three years: then he turned and rebelled against him." 591 BC - 11 years for Zedekiah - 11 years of Jehoiakim = 614 BC. Then 3 years after 614 BC in 611 BC Jehoaikim rebelled and Nebuchadnezzar came and took Jehoiachin prisoner to Babylon in Jehoaikim's fourth year. Therefore Nebuchadnezzar ruled from Jehoiakim's fourth year in 610 BC, 37 years to 574 BC.

Jeremiah 52:31 "And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, in the five and twentieth day of the month, that Evilmerodach king of Babylon in the first year of his reign lifted up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah, and brought him forth out of prison."

37 years from 610 BC is 574 BC when Evilmerodach reigned after Nebuchadnezzar.

Evilmerodach was his successor and may have reigned 23 years to 552 BC when Cyrus began his rule of Persia. There was a 50th year jubile with two months to go September 7, 591 BC when Jerusalem was taken and the temple burnt. 70 years later the second temple foundation was laid about 520 BC and because of opposition around them, the temple construction stopped for 15 years. There was a 49th year jubile in 507 BC when construction of the second temple resumed. 507 BC is 500 years before the birth of Christ, September 12, 7 BC.

Haggai 1:14 "And the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and did work in the house of the LORD of hosts, their God,
1:15 In the four and twentieth day of the sixth month, in the second year of Darius the king."

The second year, 24th of the sixth month should be August 27, 507 BC.

Haggai 2:1 "In the seventh month, in the one and twentieth day of the month, came the word of the LORD by the prophet Haggai, saying,"

The feast of booths ends on the 22nd day of the seventh month. The next day Israel would dwell in their ceiled houses while the temple was in waste.

Haggai 1:4 "Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste?"

Haggai 2:3 "Who is left among you that saw this house in her first glory? and how do ye see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing?"

Someone born in 600 BC would be 9 years old in 591 BC when the first temple was destroyed. They would be 93 in 507 BC when the second temple was being rebuilt.

September 23, 507 BC = lunar day 21. The Julian calendar loses a day every 128 years. 504 / 128 = 4 days. 4 days back from September 23, 507 BC is September 19, 507 BC. Lunar day 17 of the seventh month = September 19, 507 BC. 4 days back from September 19, 507 BC = September 16, 7 BC. About the time of Jesus' birth, September 12, 7 BC.

Haggai 2:18 "Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the LORD'S temple was laid, consider it."

Haggai 2:20 "And again the word of the LORD came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying,
2:21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;"

Kiev 24, 507 BC is equal to the first Hanukkah, December 12, 164 BC. 164 BC was the 49th year jubile from 1241 BC = 18 BC = 33 AD when Jesus was crucified. Likewise 507 BC was the 49th year jubile as well. 507 BC in even hundreds to Jesus' birth in 7 BC. From 507 BC to 164 BC = 343 years = 7 X 49. Or 7 X 7 X 7.

John 10:22 "And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.
10:23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch."

490 days back from Jesus' sacrifice, April 3, 33 AD, was the 24th of the ninth month = November 30, 31 AD. 490 years from the finish of the wall of Jerusalem in 458 BC, Xerxes' 20th year, was Jesus' sacrifice April 3, 33 AD.

The sun miracle on day 48 of cycle 60 mistaken for a solar eclipse in China is not year 505 BC but year 504 BC, day 48 of cycle 60 = February 10, 504 BC, is equal to the third day of Adar when the temple was finished in the sixth year of Darius. First year 509 BC, second year 507 BC, sixth year 504 BC. Thus a sun miracle to symbolize the finish of the temple, when also an earthquake.

The 21st day of the seventh month should be September 25, 507 BC. Half an orbit earlier, when the sun may have moved to the other side of earth, is the full moon and passover, March 23, 507 BC. Earth may shake when the sun is moved around the earth. These dates point to Jesus' birth and crucifixion, the passover lamb.

Ezra 3:8 "Now in the second year of their coming unto the house of God at Jerusalem, in the second month, began Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and the remnant of their brethren the priests and the Levites, and all they that were come out of the captivity unto Jerusalem; and appointed the Levites, from twenty years old and upward, to set forward the work of the house of the LORD."

Zechariah 1:1 "In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying,"

There is half an orbit of six months between month two and month eight. Thus there could be sun miracles on both dates.

Zechariah 7:1 "And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Darius, that the word of the LORD came unto Zechariah in the fourth day of the ninth month, even in Chisleu;"

This may be the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month. Perhaps this day would equal Hanukkah hundreds of years before the first Hanukkah day 24 of the 9th month = December 13, 163 BC. However, the day may be the fourth of the nineth month as well. The fourth year of Darius must be from his first year in 509 BC = 4th year 506 BC - 505 BC, when there may be a sun miracle as well as February 10, 504 BC.

Hebrews 12:26 "Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
12:27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
12:29 For our God is a consuming fire."

1 Corinthians 3:10 "According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."

Leviticus 12:2 "Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean.
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.
12:5 But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days."

Jesus born on the 17th day of the seventh month, September 12, 7 BC. 42 days later is the new moon to begin the ninth month. 24 more days later, the 24th of Chislev, the 24th day of the ninth month, is the threescore and six days = 66th day. Thus Hanukkah would mark from the birth of a woman born the day Jesus was.

Thus there may be a connection with the temple construction and the birth of Christ. - On the 49 year jubile April 5, 33 Jesus raised the temple of God on the third day. There was a 49th year jubile in 458 BC when the wall of Jerusalem was completed.

In 164 BC when the temple oil burned for eight days December 13, when the sun returned to the meridian in China, was the 49th year of cycle 49. Then the next several seven year periods matched the seven year periods from the 50th year jubile in 171 BC. Then sun miracles in 155 BC, 148 BC and 141 BC in China, were all in the second year of sowing in Israel by both cycles.

490 days, 7 X 70, before December 13, 164 BC = August 11, 165 BC, 10th day of the lunar month is Yom Kippur. 490 days after December 13, 164 BC is April 17, 162 BC the full moon and the passover.

One year before the 25th of the ninth month, December 13, 164 BC, was the 14th of the month, the full moon. Thus the sun could move to the other side of the earth one year before and earth flow into a reverse orbit of the sun. Then on the same date one year later the sun could move back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun.

Jesus began his ministry speaking from Isaiah 61, the day of release, the day of atonement, the jubile. Then if 490 days back from Hanukkah is Yom Kippur, the day of Atonement, and 490 days forward is the passover, this equals two and a half years. Yet Jesus' ministry must be three and a half years. Thus Jesus must have begun his ministry with the beginning of the 50th jubile year August/September 29 AD. Then one year later August/September 30 AD Yom Kippur marked the end of the 50th jubile year. From thence may have been counted 490 days to Hanukkah, then 490 days to Jesus' sacrifice at the passover, April 3, 33 AD.

Thus back from Jesus' scrifice on April 3, 33 AD, 490 + 490 days = Friday, July 29, 30 AD = Yom Kippur. Then one year earlier Yom Kippur was August 9, 29 AD, when Jesus read Isaiah 61 and fulfilled the jubile.

It appears Jesus spoke on the sabbath day. Then this must have been either Rosh Hashana, Saturday, July 30, 29 AD or Yom Kippur, Saturday, July 29, 30 AD. Nevertheless, Yom Kippur should be counted as a sabbath.

Then by the 50 year cycle there was no sowing in 37 BC, 23 BC and 22 BC and shortage of bread as recorded by Josephus. Then the temple reconstruction began in 18 BC beginning the 49th of cycle, 46 years to 29 AD as recorded by the Gospels. The Roman general Pompey attacked Jerusalem in 66 BC = 49 years back from 17 BC. Then there was a 49th year jubile when Jesus gave his life on Calvary in April 3, 33 AD.

There may have been a sun miracle about the 17th day of the 7th month about the date Jesus would be born 500 years later, September 12, 7 BC. Thus, this 21st day of the 7th month was just 4 days after the 17th day. September 17, 507 BC was a lunar eclipse visible from China. A sun miracle on the 17th day of the 7th month of the Hebrew month should be Friday, September 20, 507 BC. This was day 14 of cycle 60 in China. Lunar eclipses occur on day 14 or day 15 of the moon in the Chinese calendar. Thus a sun miracle on September 20 may be mistaken for a natural lunar eclipse on day 14. King Wan claimed there was an omen when there was a lunar eclipse, September 23, 1205 BC, on day 13 of cycle 60 because lunar eclipses do not naturally occur on day 13, but on day 15 of the Chinese lunar month.

Nevertheless, sun miracles 1200 years before Jesus' birth appear to have occurred in the same pattern as September 13, 7 BC and September 15, 5 BC.

Haggai 2:1 "In the seventh month, in the one and twentieth day of the month, came the word of the LORD by the prophet Haggai, saying,
2:2 Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and to the residue of the people, saying,
2:3 Who is left among you that saw this house in her first glory? and how do ye see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing?
2:4 Yet now be strong, O Zerubbabel, saith the LORD; and be strong, O Joshua, son of Josedech, the high priest; and be strong, all ye people of the land, saith the LORD, and work: for I am with you, saith the LORD of hosts:"

2 Kings 19:29 "And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such things as grow of themselves, and in the second year that which springeth of the same; and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruits thereof."

507 BC was the 49th jubile year from 1241 BC. As in the 50th jubile year the land was to remain fallow for two years. Thus after the foundation of the second temple was laid in the second year the people could sow their fields again.

1 Corinthians 3:10 "According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."

There may have been a sun miracle 200 years befoe the bith of Christ. September 4, 207 BC, Sunday, was day 17 of the Hebrew lunar month. It was day 14 of cycle 60 of the Chinese calendar.

The 17th day of the 7th Hebrew month in 507 BC, September 20, 507 BC, was also on day 14 of cycle 60 in China.

That year, 207 BC, Lui Pang became emperor of China. A sun miracle in September of that year may have given Lui Pang an omen he could use to gain superiority in the battle. That year he sent his astronomers to the four winds, to find the stars passing above to mark the four seasons for planting just as emperor Yao had after the sun stood still 9 days. Yao's calendar only works if there was a sun miracle about April 1, 2315 BC and earth flowed into a reverse orbit of the sun.

"According to Shih chi, a victory at Wu Pass took place in the eighth month of the third year of the Second Emperor, 207 BC, about the same time that Chao Kao murdered the Second Emperor and Tzu Ying became king. The following month, Lui Pang also took Yao Pass."
The Grand Scribes Records, Volume II, p.36.

"In the second year (205 BC), the King of Han moved east overrunning territory and Ssu-ma Hsin, the King of Sai, Tung Yi, the King of Ti, and Shen Yang, the King of Ho-nan, all surrendered."
Note: 317 "Liang Yu-sheng points out that both of these kings surrendered in the eighth month of the first year of Han."
The Grand Scribe's Records, Volume II, p.47.

The eighth month of 205 BC would be September. There may have been a sun miracle that day in September when the Kings surrendered. Yang also means sun. Thus the name Shen Yang could refer to a sun miracle. This could be a pattern of Jesus' birth September 12, 7 BC and the sun returning two years later September 15, 5 BC. The same pattern of a sun miracle in king Wan in 1207 BC and the sun miracle / lunar eclipse, sun returning, September 24, 1205 BC. Thus a sun miracle in Lui Pang's first year in 207 BC and in his second year in 205 BC. All These years were 100's of years to Jesus' birth.

"In the sixth month (15 July-13 August 205 BC) he, Lui Pang, installed him, Hsiao Hui, as the Heir Apparent.. Thereupon, he ordered the officials in charge of offerings to sacrifice to the Heaven, earth, the four directions, Shang-ti (The Supreme Diety), the mountains, and the rivers..."

The Grand Scribe's Records, Volume II, p.51.

The Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt. Ptolemy IX, 1st 116 - 106 BC. Head of Ptolemy rt., wearing a fillet. / Eagle standing lt. on a thunderbolt. Thus again, there may have been a sun miracle in 107 BC, 100 years before Jesus' birth in 7 BC.

Roman coin 211 BC - 208 BC - Bearded head of Mars right, wearing crested Corinthian helmet; LX (mark of value) behind / Eagle standing right on thunderbolt with wings spread. The astronomical significance may be a sun miracle in 207 BC = the sun miracle of Lui Pang in China in 207 BC, thus the eagle = the phoenix, 200 years before Jesus would be born.

The Roman eagle may have represented the phoenix.

The four directions were like when Yao sent He and Ho to view the stars to mark the four seasons in 2315 BC, just after Yao's ten suns = Yao's long day of 9 X 12 hours. Thus earth be still in a reverse orbit in the sixth month in July, the sun to return in the eighth month, in September 205 BC.

Joseph was brought out of prison and interpreted the seven years of plenty and seven years of famine in Pharaoh's dream and was made governor over Egypt, on Pharaoh's birthday which was always April 1.

Thus Lui Pang could have looked to find the 4 stars that marked out the 4 seasons in a reverse orbit in 207 BC 200 years before Jesus' birth about September 13, 7 BC.

2 Kings 25:8 "And in the fifth month, on the seventh day of the month, which is the nineteenth year of king Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, came Nebuzaradan, captain of the guard, a servant of the king of Babylon, unto Jerusalem:
25:9 And he burnt the house of the LORD, and the king's house, and all the houses of Jerusalem, and every great man's house burnt he with fire."

Thus the first year of Nebuchadnezzar must have been 611 BC in the 30th year of the 50 year jubile count from 1241 BC.

Thus the captivity was on the seventh day of the fifth month. This should be day 40 of the Chinese cycle of 60 to be the solar eclipse record for the sixth month, for day 40 of cycle 60, for 591 BC of cycle. The suggested date in the Chinese Classics is October 5, 591 BC which is incorrect. Thus, Saturday, September 7, 591 BC is the seventh day of the month, seventh day of the week, 40th day of cycle 60, and could be the fifth month.

2 Kings 25:27 "And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, that Evilmerodach king of Babylon in the year that he began to reign did lift up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah out of prison;"

Therefore, 19 years back from 591 BC is 610 BC, Nebuchadnezzar's first year, year 30 of the 50 year jubile, 37 years forward is 573 BC to Nebuchadnezzar's death. Then 23 years of Evilmerodach to Cyrus in 551 BC.

Ezekiel 40:1 "In the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month, in the fourteenth year after that the city was smitten, in the selfsame day the hand of the LORD was upon me, and brought me thither.
40:2 In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame of a city on the south."

This 25th year of the captivity was 579 BC. The year of cycle 60 was recorded was the first year of Duke Le of Tsin. Thus perhaps there was a sun miracle that year behind the promotion of Duke Le.

September 7, 591 BC in the month of Av, the fifth month, was two months before the end of the 50th year. Then 70 years to August/September 521 BC, to begin the first year, year one, since the captivity after the 50th year. Thus the jubile could hardly have been celebrated in 591 BC or the two months leading up to the first year in the seventh month in 521 BC.

So the first year in the tenth day of the seventh month, August 17, 521 BC would begin the first year and no jubile. Then the foundation of the second temple was laid in Zif or May of this second year. Zif means light. Thus perhaps a long day of light when the building of the temple began. Also the first temple foundation was laid the 240th year from the Exodus March 30, 1281 BC, in the month of Zif, May, 1041 BC in the jubile year. May was the time of opening flowers which were to be carved on the inside of the temple. Because the jublile was unbroken from Yom Kippur, August 26, 1241 BC - to September 7, 591 BC, then the 70 years captivity to September 521 BC, then 50 year jubilees to Yom Kippur, September 9, 29 AD or August 9, 29 AD - this must be the correct chronology.

From Moses' 40th year in 1321 BC when Moses thought to deliver the Hebrews, are 50 year jubiles to 29 AD also.

Dead Sea Scroll 4Q244 Frag. 12 1..four hundred years..
12.2 Their oppression and they shall come out of Egypt...the day they crossed the Jordan is the [x]th jubilee..

"the waters which come down..stood piled up. The sons of Israel crossed over when it was dry, in the first month of the forty-first year of their departure from the land of Egypt; it was the year of the Jubilees at the start of their entry into the land of Canaan; and the Jordan was full with water towards all its banks and it flooded with its water from the month..until the month of the wheat harvest.."
The Dead Sea Scrolls, Study Edition, p. 751, 4Q379.

There were 21 jubiles from Jacob's death in 2290 BC to the crossing of the Jordan in 1241 BC. There were 30 jubiles from the new Egyptian sothis cycle (2737 BC) 2741 BC to 1241 BC. There were 46 X 50 jubiles from Enoch at the Armenian sothis year 365 from 3907 BC = 3542 BC, 2300 years to 1241 BC.

The 41st year from 1281 BC = 1241 BC. 1241 BC began the 50 year jubile to 591 BC. Then a 70 year period. And the jubile began from 521 BC to 29 AD. Jacob died at 147 years old in 2291 BC.

Genesis 47:9 "And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years:"

Genesis 47:28 "And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years: so the whole age of Jacob was an hundred forty and seven years."

Jacob entered Egypt in 2307 BC when he was 130 years old. 17 years later would be this 2291 BC.

Genesis 50:3 "And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of those which are embalmed: and the Egyptians mourned for him threescore and ten days."

Deuteronomy 34:7 "And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.
34:8 And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days: so the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were ended."

Moses died this 1242 BC almost 1241 BC, which would become the jubile. Thus both Jacob and Moses would die on the jubile.

There may have begun a 50 year jubile from 2291 BC to this 1241 BC to 591 BC.

"And in the sixth year, in the seventh week of this jubile Abraham called Isaac his son, and commanded him saying: I am old and do not know the day of my death, for I have completed my days. Behold I am one hundred and seventy-two years,.."
The Dead Sea Scrolls, Study Edition, p.467

The birth of Abraham 2607 BC - 172 years = 2435 BC, back 6 years = 2441 BC. From 2441 BC to 2291 BC 150 years, all the way to 591 BC.

There was a sun miracle in Yao's / Joseph's 70th year from 2315 BC = 2245 BC. Then the 50 year jubile may be taken from when Joseph was 100 years old in 2245 BC when there was a sun miracle recorded in China. Joshua crossed the Jordan in 1241 BC 1004 years later. The Egyptian calendar backed up one day every four years. Thus a difference of one day in a thousand years = 1004 years. Thus the tenth tenth jubile. Thus the 400 years of slavery from 1681 BC to the Exodus 1281 BC.

There were about 400 years from Malachi, the last book of the Old Testament to Jesus.

Then there may have been a 70 year period to begin the 50 year jubile as there was a 70 year period of captivity from 591 BC to 521 BC to begin the 50 year jubile to Jesus' speaking from Isaiah 61 to fulfill a continuous jubile in September 29 AD.

Jacob must have died in 2291 BC. Jacob at 130 years old at 2307 BC 17 years 147 years old in 2291 BC. The same 50 year cycle in 1241 BC at the crossing of the river Jordan by Joshua.

From 1281 BC 400 years to 1681 BC, 10 jubilees is 500 years, 1780 BC, 20 jubilees is 1000 years, 2246 BC in Joseph/Yao's 70th year of rule from 2315 BC. 2345 BC = 38 years plus 2307 BC. Like what appears as a sun miracle at the passover when Julius Caesar was killed in 45 BC = 38 years to Jesus' birth in 7 BC. Then the 38 years of Jesus' life from 7 BC to April 3, 33 AD.

The lunar day equals the same day in the Julian calendar every 19 years. Thus, the full moon passover, six months after Jesus was born, April 4, 6 BC and the full moon passover of Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD.

Likewise, when Jesus came up to the feast of tabernacles, it was his birthday, Friday, September 12, 32 AD just as it was, Saturday, September 12, 7 BC. The feast of tabernacles started on lunar day 15 to lunar day 22. Thus lunar day 17 is the midst of the feast.

John 7:14 "Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught."

"When the emperor had been on the throne 70 years, a brilliant star issued from the constellation Yih, Corvus, and phoenixes appeared.."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.113.

70 years from Yao's first year in 2315 BC = 2245 BC. 2245 BC - 38 years = 2207 BC, 2200 years to Jesus' birth in 7 BC. The sun miracle in 2245 BC may have foretold the 38 years of Jesus' perfect life.

46 X 50 year jubilees from the sojourn into Egypt, 2307 BC, Jesus' birth in 7 BC. From 2532 BC when Abraham left Haran for the promised land, 1250 years, 25 X 50, to the Exodus in 1281 BC. All these ages add up exactly if Isaac was 69 and not 60 when Jacob and Esau were born. Terah was 70 when Abraham was born as well. Then Terah would be about 39, the age of Jesus when Jesus was crucified, the year of the sun miracle January 27, 2636 BC in China, at the start of the 60 day cycle and 60 year cycle.

Jubiles may be counted from Adam in 4568 BC. Then 2268 BC be a fifty year jubile. Then 1318 BC be a jubile. Then there be 38 more years to the Exodus. The 38 years be a type of the life of Christ. Likewise, from 4568 BC to 18 BC 50 year jubiles. The temple was reconstructed from 18 BC 46 years to April 29 AD. Then 49 years from 18 BC to Jesus' sacrifice April 3, 33 AD.

The day they crossed the Jordan in January 1241 BC would start the count of the 50 year jubile to 591 BC. Then 70 years captivity, and start the jubile in 521 BC to 21 BC + 50 years to September 29 AD when the jubile was fulfilled.

The full moon of spring in 2268 BC to be like the passover and pattern 2300 years before Jesus' was crucified, should be on day 8 of cycle 60, and year 8 of cycle 60, March 23, 2268 BC. Thus the Chinese lucky number 8 may have counted from sun miracles on a year 8 and a day 8.

In Yao's 42nd year a brilliant star appeared in Yih (Crater) = 2273 BC = 2300 years to Jesus' speaking from Isaiah 61 the fulfillment of the jubile on Yom Kippur, Saturday, September 10, 29 AD. Supernova usually occur in the Milky Way. Leo = Yih, near Crater and is not in the Milky Way. The Milky Way is our own galaxy edge on. Thus the nearest stars to earth are mostly in the Milky Way. Supernovae in other far away galaxies are not normally visible as a brilliant star. Thus, a brilliant star appearing at the same time as phoenixes, must have something to do with God moving the sun, rather than a naturally occuring supernova. In Yao's 70th year "A brilliant star issued out of Yih, Corvus, and phoenixes appeared". Phoenixes indicates the sun angel flying to the sun to move the sun to the other side of earth. Both may be records of sun miracles.

Yao's 70th year = Joseph 30 in 2316 BC and 70 years later Joseph was 100 years old. This could be a sabbath fallow year in Egypt for Israel 6 X 7 = 42 from Joseph's first year in 2316 BC, and it be marked by a sun miracle. Perhaps the sun moved from Aries in early spring at the month that would become the passover and be this brilliant star in Crater / Corvus, 180° away.

These brilliant new stars in Yih may point to the star that led the wisemen to Jesus. Arcturus, named in the Bible, is nearby, also.

The setting sun in Taurus, April 22, 2245 BC, Crater would be directly above at sunset. The sun moved to the other side of the earth, Crater would be directly above at sunrise, April 22, 2245 BC.

The passover and Jesus' sacrifice April 3, 33 AD was 13 days after the spring equinox March 22, 33 AD. Likewise, April 22, 2245 BC was 13 day after the spring equinox April 11, 2245 BC.

Yao's 42nd year would be 2272 BC or 2273 BC. 2300 years before Jesus spoke from Isaiah 61 and fulfilled the 50 year jubile. Likewise, Yao's 70th year, 2245 BC, was 2200 years + 38 years to Jesus' birth in 7 BC, and Jesus life of 38 years to April 3, 33 AD. And 2200 years to the darkness at the passover on the Ides of March, March 15, 45 BC, when Julius Caesar was killed. There may have been darkness over the earth, at 10 AM in Italy and in Rome, that the senators took as an omen to kill Julius Caesar.

March 19, 2273 BC, would be the full moon = what would become the passover in Egypt. March 19, 2273 BC is day 38 of cycle 60. Just as April 22, 2245 BC is day 38 of cycle 60. Thus, the second time there was a sun miracle, it could have been on the same day of cycle 60. And the day of 60 recorded because of the omen of the day of cycle 60. Thus the brilliant star also in Yih, Leo/Crater, would be connected to a sun miracle. The day before Yih would be directly above at sunset. The day after the sun moved to the other side of earth, March 19, 2273 BC, Yih would be directly above at sunrise.

Moreover, Yih = Crater, would rise earlier each day and be more visible through the night because of the reverse orbit. Thus, instead of disappearing into the sunset over the next months, the brilliant star in Yih would become visible all night.

"On the second month, the sin-chow, (day 38 of cycle 60 = April 22, 2245 BC the new moon), between dark and light, the ceremonies were all prepared; and when the day began to decline, a glorious light came from the Ho, and beautiful vapours filled all the horizon; white clouds rose up, and returning winds blew all about. Then the dragon-horse appeared, bearing in his mouth.."

"Two years afterwards, in the 2d month, he led out all his ministers, and dropped a peih in the Lo. The ceremony over, he retired, and waited for the decline of the day. Then a red light appeared; a tortoise rose from the waters, with a writing in red lines on its back, and rested on the altar. The writing said that he should resign the throne to Shun, which accordingly the emperor did."

The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.113.

187 days, half an orbit, from the new moon October 22, 2245 BC is the tenth day of the seventh month, October 26, 2245 BC Yom Kippur.

Saturday, October 16, 2246 BC is day 17 of the Hebrew lunar month = day 30 of cycle 60. October 10, 2246 BC was the autumn equinox.

April 22, 2244 BC, is the tenth day of what would be four days before the passover when the lamb was to be taken into the home for four days.

October 26, 2244 BC, is day 22 of the seventh month = the last day of the feast of tabernacles.

April 22, 2243 BC, the 21st day of the month, is the seventh day of unleavened bread after what would be the passover. When the sun may return and earth flow out of the reverse orbit that day.

Thus, the sun may move 180° on those days, earth flowing into and out of reverse orbits.

Perhaps there was a sun miracle seven years later on Yao's 49th year also to point to Jesus' sacrifice. Thus 180° from the sun in Pisces/Aries in Spring is Yih/Crater/Corvus. Thus the brilliant star may be the sun in Crater moved to the other side of earth, March 23, 2268 BC, to be a pattern of a sun miracle on the passover when Jesus was crucified 2300 years later.

50th year from 2316 BC may be counted as 2367 BC.

From 2315 BC, Yao's 50th year would be 2267 BC = 2300 years before Jesus sacrifice in 33 AD. The 50th year could be a type of jubile for Israel in Egypt, and there may have been a sun miracle at that time, such as God's chariot pulling the sun. From 2307 BC to 2267 BC = 38 years of Jesus' life.

Joseph was at the end of his 14 year stay with Laban when Joseph was born, and stayed 6 more years till coming to Canaan. Jacob was supposed to have been born when Isaac was 60. Then Jacob would be 120 when Isaac died at 180. Then Joseph was sold into slavery when he was 17, and Jacob 107. Jacob came into Canaan when he was 97 and Isaac died soon after. That leaves 23 years from Jacob coming into Canaan till Isaac died.

Genesis 25:26 "And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them."

Isaac must have been 60 and 9 years old = 69 years old, the 9 having been omitted by a copy error, when Jacob was born.

2447 BC would be when Isaac was 60, would be the new Armenian Sothis cycle. The split of the Catholic Church supposedly at the new Armenian Sothis cycle 550 AD, must be back 76 years to match the Egyptian Sothis cycle, back 1460 years back 1460 years to the new Armenian sothis cycle at 2446 BC.

The 23 year cycle in the Dead Sea Scrolls = the seven day week on the same lunar day = 2445 BC. The new moon, March 4, 2307 BC was Sunday = 23 X 100 years to Jesus' birth in 7 BC. 2445 BC forward 23 years = 2422 BC, when March 3 is the new moon and Sunday. March 2, 53 BC was the new moon and Sunday. Less 23 and less 23 years to 7 BC. Thus the 23 year cycle works most of the time.

467 BC is 20 X 23 years before Jesus' birth September 12, 7 BC, also equals 500 years before Jesus' sacrifice April 3, 33 AD. 467 BC also is the first year of emperor King Ching-Ting = kwei-yew (10th of cycle 60 = 467 BC)
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.167

The Chinese changed emperors often when there was a sun miracle they took as a bad omen. This 467 BC was the tenth year of Xerxes = about the time of Esther.

Abraham born in 2607 BC and Jacob 130 years old in 2307 BC = the Sojourn into Egypt, only work if Isaac was 69 when Jacob was born.

Then Jacob would be 110 when Isaac died at 180. Joseph would be born when Jacob was 91, and in his old age, if Jacob was 130 when he entered Egypt when Joseph was 39. Then Joseph would be about 18 when Isaac died, about the 17 years of age he is the chapter following Isaac's death. That leaves 14 years from Jacob coming into Canaan till Isaac died. Thus Josephus may be correct that Isaac died shortly after Jacob returned to Canaan. Then Jacob left for Haran when he was 70 years old in 2368 BC. The 49 year jubile to Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD was in 2368 BC = 2200 years, 44 X 50 jubiles from Adam in Armenian year 800.

Then Jacob was in Canaan 20 years from 2362 BC to 2342 BC and Joseph was born in 2346 BC and Benjamin would be born in 2342 BC. Thus Joseph was 17 when he was sold into slavery by his brothers = the death of Isaac in 2327 BC, and Benjamin would have been 4 years younger, 13 years old.

Thus Benjamin would have been old enough for Joseph to have made friendship with his brother before he was sold into captivity.

Genesis 37:33 "And he knew it, and said, It is my son's coat; an evil beast hath devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces.
37:34 And Jacob rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his loins, and mourned for his son many days."

Jacob may also be mourning for his father Isaac as well as for Joseph that same year.

John 2:12 "After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days.
2:13 And the Jews passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,"

John 2:18 "Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
2:20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?"

The temple had been under construction from the 49th cycle jubile. 49 years from 17 BC is Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD. 490 years from the wall of Jerusalem in 458 BC to Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD. Josephus wrote of the temple being rebuilt from the 49th of cycle. The temple was built by the priests. There was another year 49, the 50th year of the 50 year cycle, both year 49 and year 50 were Sabbath for the fallow land, in 23 BC which was part of the 50 year jubile cycle which was calculated by the four year Olympic cycle. Thus both the 49 year cycle from 1241 BC to 33 AD, and the 50 year jubile cycle from 1241 BC to 591 BC - 70 year gap - from 521 BC to 29 AD, were in effect.

And thus Jesus spoke on the beginning of the fiftieth cycle, Yom Kippur August 9, 29 AD or September 9, 29 AD in Luke 4 and was crucified in the 49th cycle April 3, 33 AD. Thus the 49th year may be the jubile. And thus this resurrection year would be a year of release of the jubile.

John 2:22 "When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
2:23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did."

Jesus must have spoken these words on the Passover, February 17, 29 AD or March 19, 29 AD.

From the jubile on Yom Kippur September 16, 521 BC, every 50 years to Yom Kippur August 9, 29 AD or September 9, 29 AD.

Nehemiah 8:2 "And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month."

Perhaps Saturday, July 2, 29 AD or Saturday, August 27, 29 AD was Rosh Hashanah on the eve of the seventh month. Jesus may have read Luke 4 and Isaiah 61 to begin the jubile on the first day of the seventh month instead of the 9th day of Yom Kippur. Jesus was 40 days in the wilderness fasting a day for each of the 40 years and reading in Deuteronomy, which was all about preparing to cross over Jordan and possess the promised land. Joshua's long day must have been August 24, 1241 BC. Thus about the day of victory of Joshua, Jesus who is Joshua, stood up to speak. The one who had just gotten the victory over Satan.

Luke 4:18 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
4:19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord."

Luke 4:21 "And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears."

Matthew 4:14 "That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
4:15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;
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.
4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."

Isaiah 58:7 "Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?
58:8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward."

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:"

Thus a brilliant sudden sunrise in the east as the sunrise at 9 PM Saturday = the evening and the morning were the first day = when Jesus rose from the dead.

Isaiah 62:1 "For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth."

Zion I am told means sunny.

Two stand alone winter half reverse orbits without summer reverse orbits would give 30 minutes and 30 minutes = 60 minutes missing time to be countered by the hour of darkness when Jesus was on the cross. However, this year appears to have both a summer and a winter reverse orbit. So one more stand alone winter half reverse orbit would need to occur before or after these years. This second stand alone winter half reverse orbit may be the return of the sun on the night after the end of the month of the Passover in 34 AD.

The real light is Jesus' life and example. Sunday, July 3, 29 AD or Sunday August 28, 29 AD, could be when Jesus called Andrew and Peter on a work day when they were fishing on a work day:

Matthew 4:18 "And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
4:20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him."

Mark 1:21 "And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the Sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught."

2 Peter 1:19 "We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:"

The Egyptians watched for the appearing of Sirius, 4:15 AM July 16 every year. This event would begin their year and 1460 year sothis cycle and warn when the Nile River would flood. Sirius would disappear in the western sunset 77 days earlier, then reappear before the sunrise July 16 every year.

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."

Psalm 77:16 "The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled."

In an old city in Estonia, they employed a man to keep watch at the gate. The city was surrounded by a wall, and there was one gate. The watch keeper would stand in a tunnel below the gate. He would watch a bowl of water with a candle to keep light. Whenever an intruder entered the gate, the bowl of water would tremble, the watchman would immediately notify the towns people to take defense. Years later the city became part of the country and there was no need for the watchman.

Perhaps the waters of Bethesda were working miracles not of God, thus were afraid. The false angel may have worked miracles when the sun revolved around the earth, thus the waters would be troubled by slight earthquakes. Only of Jesus is there real healing. Thus Jesus healed the man with the palsy:

John 5:1 "After this there was the feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem."

John 5:8 "Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk."

John 5:14 "Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee."

Jesus may have healed the man on February 32 AD on the Sabbath. The sun may have stood still in the sky that Sabbath, or Sunday, and Jesus may have walked with his disciples in that one long day to Galilee. This was normally a three day journey. Jesus may have had 12 hours longer or 36 hours longer to complete the journey to Galilee. Thus the sign of Jonah where Jonah reached Nineveh in one day, normally a three day journey also. Nineveh was a great city of three days journey is said because it took three days to walk around it. Either it took Jonah three days to walk around Nineveh or it took Jonah three days to walk through the steets of Nineveh. There is speculation this feast in John 5:1 was the feast of Adar of Esther. However, Jesus spoke of Moses. And the feast associated with Moses is the Passover. Then possibly Jesus left Jerusalem that Saturday February 32 AD because the Jews sought to kill him for healing on the Sabbath.

Also Herod sought to kill him. Then three days later, 36 hours later, he arrived in Galilee February 32 AD, then a few days later crossed the Sea of Galilee and fed the 5,000 the night of the Passover February 32 AD. Then the sun may have suddenly ascended in the east the day after Jesus fed the 5,000. However, a whole year appears to have taken place between the Passover feast in John 5 and the Passover feast in John 6.

Matthew Matthew 12:39 "But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
12:40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."

The sign of Jonah was the three days Jesus was in the tomb. The significance of the three days may be a long night/day of 3 X 24 hours the Friday/Saturday Jesus was in the tomb. Thus, the three whole days Jonah was in the whale's belly.

The sun miracles in the Old Testament pointed to Jesus. Thus when Jesus was before them there was no need of a sun miracle. Jesus name in Hebrew is Joshua. Thus the Pharisees may have been tempted to ask a sun miracle of Jesus like Joshua's long day. Jesus is everything. So there would be no point.

Jonah 3:3 "So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days' journey.
3:4 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown."

Jonah may have had a long day of +72 hours, 3 X 24 hours, to make the journey. Nevertheless, people could walk long distances in those days and this just underlines their ability to walk a like distance from Jerusalem to Galilee in three days, or even one day of +36 hours. Therefore, a long day of +84 hours would be the same as a week's journey. This would be 55 miles a day, 443 miles total. This is similar to the distance as from Melbourne to Sydney. There was a race from Melbourne to Sydney in 1983, 544 miles. A 61 year old farmer, Cliff Young, ran day and night and in five days finished first. I match some Youngs both in Y-dna and autosomal dna. DeJong is the most common surname in the Netherlands. There is the possibility Cliff Young shares running genes with Gambino which dates back to Bible times.

A man with the last name Young finished second in the Kelowna Marathon October 11, 2015. Some of my DNA matches are both Young and Gambino.

At the same pace Jonah would have made 443 miles in three 24 hour days, 72 hours + 12 hours. February 9, 32 AD may have been 3 X 12 hours = +36 hours longer, and Jonah about 790 BC may have had 84 hours to make it to Nineveh which is further and looks like a weeks journey on a map. Three days journey could be the journey around the city, but it also could be the sun revolving three times around the earth with earth's rotation. The long day could then be countered by three short days that year to leave no net missing time. Then on February 12, 32 AD there may have been a short night and sudden sunrise in the east.

Thus it was written "And it was now dark" and "immediately they were at the land" because the sun revolving around the earth would leave Israel in total darkness in those few hours, then rising briefly suddenly and brightly in the east.

Nevertheless, the three days journey is said to refer to the time it took to walk around the city, and that Jonah did that in one day and that was why the city was so great.

After the sun had completed the 180° the sun would appear normal. Thus God made the sun to rise on the good and the bad.

Matthew 14:12 "And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried it, and went and told Jesus.
14:13 When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities."

Matthew 14:15 "And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals."

Mark 6:35 "And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed."

That hour was after sunset, soon to be dark. However, the sun must return the evening of February 32 AD. If the sun did not return to stand still in the sky Saturday February then it might return at sunset February. There would be a long twilight, perhaps this red sunset for 12 hours. Perhaps this would be the meaning of "the day was far spent" and "the time is now past". Then the sun suddenly set in the west and an hour or two later rose in the east. Thus the red sky in the morning when the great wind blew. The sun would be purple red at sunset and crimson red at sunrise. Red is the colour of the Chinese New Year. February 32 AD would see a red sun and red moon in China on the 13th day of the 15 day new year celebration. The Chinese word auspicious is hung upside down during the Chinese New Year.

That night before February 12, 32 AD the Chinese would see Arcturus and the handle of the Big Dipper down, then that night they would see the Big Dipper pointing up, then pointing down at midnight again.

John 6:1 "After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.
6:4 And the Passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.
6:5 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?"

John 6:16 "And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,
6:17 And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.
6:18 And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.
6:19 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.
6:20 But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
6:21 Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went."

Mark 6:48 "And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them."

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."

- There were four watches in February 12, 32 AD, because this was winter and there were fourteen hours of darkness divided into three and a half hours each. Gideon attacked at the sun rising in the west to begin Joshua's long day, August 24, 1241 BC. There were three watches then because there were only 9 hours darkness of 3 hours each in summer.

Matthew 16:1 "The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.
16:2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
16:3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
16:4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed."

Isaiah 7:10 "Moreover the LORD spake again unto Ahaz, saying,
7:11 Ask thee a sign of the LORD thy God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above.
7:12 But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the LORD.
7:13 And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also?
7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. "

Day 42 of cycle 60 was the full moon, March 20, 718 BC.

"In his, King P'ing, 51st year, in the spring, in the 2nd month, on the day yih-sze, 42d of cycle, there was an eclipse of the sun. In the third month, on the day kang-seuh, day 47 of cycle, the king died."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.60.

March 20, 718 BC, was the second Chinese month from February, and was day 42 of cycle 60. Ahaz may have died on the same date, March 20, 717 BC one year later, on day 47 of cycle 60, when the sun must return and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun. March 20, 717 BC also was the fifth day of the lunar month. Normally a solar eclipse means the end of the month. March 20, 717 BC was the new moon, but not a solar eclipse.

Thus from day 42, day 47 should be the fifth day of a new month. One year after a sun miracle on day 42 March 20, 718 BC, is March 20, 717 BC day 47 of cycle 60. 365 days a year. In the 60 day cycle, one year later is 5 days more on the same date. Thus the complete picture. Thus both Ahaz and P'ing may have died the same day. The sun moving west from noon in China, dawn in Israel, and being darkened may have been recorded as this solar eclipse.

Hezekiah held the passover, probably the full moon, April 3, 717 BC, in the second month to give time to prepare after the death of Ahaz.

2 Chronicles 30:2 "For the king had taken counsel, and his princes, and all the congregation in Jerusalem, to keep the passover in the second month.
30:3 For they could not keep it at that time, because the priests had not sanctified themselves sufficiently, neither had the people gathered themselves together to Jerusalem."

Jesus was crucified April 3, 33 AD. There was no solar eclipse on a day 42. The sun may have been darkened at noon when the passover was to occur, like the sun was darkened at noon when Jesus was on the cross.

This darkness may describe the sun passing east west ten "degrees" = ten steps = 180° = ten hours, on Ahaz' sundial to give only two hours daylight. Thus, this darkness may have been the sign of Ahaz. Thus Hezekiah in his 14th year, asked the sun to retreat ten steps rather than decline ten steps as it alread had done for his father Ahaz.

Ahaz may have died one year later on the same date, March 20, 717 BC, when Hezekiah became King of Judah.

Jeremiah 10:2 "Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them."

Matthew 16:2,3 are not included in the codex sinaiticus. However, the following verses in Luke are:

Luke 12:54 "And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.
12:55 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.
12:56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?"

Rain often comes with sun miracles, and warm south winds can come from a very hot sun rising.

The wind comes from the west in winter, the rainy season. The wind comes from the south east in summer from the Saudi desert. There may have been sun miracles August 28, 29 AD and February 30 AD, August 28, 30 AD and February 31 AD, August 28, 31 AD and February 32 AD, August 28, 32 AD. Then again October 32 AD and April 3, 33 AD. Rain clouds often appeared when there was a sun miracle, perhaps to hide the phoenix. Likewise, a sun miracle in August when the sun stood still would mean more heat.

There may have been sun miracles the first day of the first month, February 4, 29 AD, 186 days later Yom Kippur August 9, 29 AD = half orbit. July 29, 30 AD half an orbit 178 days to the 10th day of the first month of passover = January 23, 31 AD. The full moon October 19, 31 BC 178 days half orbit to the full moon April 14, 32 AD. Then again the full moon October 7, 32 AD 178 days half an orbit later and the full moon April 3, 33 AD.

Matthew 12:40 "For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."

This is three whole days of 3 X 24 = 72 hours when Jesus was in the grave. Perhaps the sun rose in the west Friday night, the night of the crucifixion, then set in the east - and that reverse sun day was counted as a day of the week the seventh day. However, it would appear as if it was a reversed day because the sun rose in the west and set in the east. Perhaps the long night Friday night and the sun setting in the east took 7 X 12 hours, or 7 X 180°, a plus 84 hours longer to sunrise in the east Saturday morning. Or this was one long Friday night. This could be like the long night of 8 nights long of the first Hanukkah. There the sun set in the east on Israel and set in the east in China as well, December 13, 164 BC. Then the sun rose in the west Saturday morning and set in the east at the end of the Sabbath Saturday night.

Then at 9 PM beginning Sunday sunrise April 5, 33 AD, at the beginning of the second watch, the sun suddenly rose in the east. This would make for three days and three nights of 24 hour days worth, 84 hours duration, and the crucifixion still be Friday and the resurrection Sunday before sunrise. This because the Sabbath was over at sunset and Sunday had already begun. "The evening and the morning were the first day".

Exodus 10:21 "And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.
10:22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:
10:23 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings."

This three days of darkness maybe 3 X 24 hours. 7 X 12 hours plus the same night of 12 hours = 8 X 12 hours of night. That the children of Israel had light in their dwellings may be like the miracle of Hanukkah when there was only oil for one night that miraculously lasted eight nights. Or like the five wise virgins who had taken oil in their vessels. The verse states they had light in their dwellings. Thus it was dark outside and light inside.

People put into a chamber with no light, or sound etc, in about three days usually develope psychosis.

Zechariah 14:6 "And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:
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.
14:8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be."

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."

Some of these verses in Zechariah 14 refer to Jesus' coming again. See Isaiah 28:17-22. At the time Zechariah wrote these verses, they may have occurred. This may be the twilight in 505 BC when the milky way was not visible in King King's 14th year from 518 BC. There was also perhaps the same twilight in emperor Ch'aou's 14th year when the regular stars were not visible. Because of a missing 120 years of history it is hard to place Ch'aou's 14th year: 1094 BC to 974 BC.

The 17th day of the 7th Hebrew lunar month was September 20, 507 BC = 500 years before Jesus' birth. = day 14 of cycle 60, the milky way did not appear in year 14 = 505 BC, 2 years later. There could be a parallel with Jesus' birth 500 years later, about the 17th day of the 7th month, September 13, 7 BC and the blood moon during a lunar eclipse September 15, 5 BC. Thus a sun miracle in both Ch'ao's 14th year of twilight and King King's 14th year of twilight, why the regular stars did not appear and the Milky Way did not appear.

The sun is in the middle of the Milky Way December 2000 AD. In 2000 BC the Milky Way was visible just above the sun in December. Thus in 500 BC the Milky Way was still visible above the sun in December. The Milky Way is always visible high in the sky in June, in summer. Thus if the sun moved 180° in summer, the sun should be near the Milky Way in 500 BC. If the sun moved after the spring equinox, earth's orbit should shift 2° per day after the spring equinox. Then again, the sun may appear in the 2000 AD position in the middle of the Milky Way. Thus the Milky Way would not be visible when it normally would be visible.

This may have been to give the Israelites light at night to build and finish the second temple. Then a sun miracle in King King's 14th year in 504 BC the solar eclipse for day 48 of cycle 60 not in 505 BC but in 504 BC.

From Wu's last year 1168 BC to Muh 1068 BC is 100 years. But only if Kang reigned 44 years and not 26 years. Also, from Wu's last year to Muh may be 200 years = 1168 BC - 968 BC. Wu's last year began Chih's first year. In the first month of spring, on day 7 of cycle 60, King Chih made an announcement. This should be March 7, 1168 BC, the 10th lunar day. the Passover lamb was to be taken into the house on the tenth day and sacrificed on the 14th day passover. Or this day 7 of cycle 60 was the full moon, the Passover, Sunday March 2, 1167 BC. All the more reason to connect 1168 BC with Jesus' sacrifice in 33 AD. Thus perhaps sun miracles both in 1168 BC and 1068 BC, X68 BC = X100 years before Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD. Thus Wu's last year his sixth year 1168 BC, 37 for Chih, 44 for Kang, 19 for Ch'aou = 100 years to Muh's first year 1068 BC.

Asa reigned from 984 BC. Therefore his 15th year was 968 BC = 1000 years to Jesus' sacrifice. Thus there may have been a sun miracle that year to show God was pleased, that was an omen for China to change emperors.

2 Ch 15:10 "So they gathered themselves together at Jerusalem in the third month, in the fifteenth year of the reign of Asa.
15:11 And they offered unto the LORD the same time, of the spoil which they had brought, seven hundred oxen and seven thousand sheep.
15:12 And they entered into a covenant to seek the LORD God of their fathers with all their heart and with all their soul;
15:13 That whosoever would not seek the LORD God of Israel should be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman.
15:14 And they sware unto the LORD with a loud voice, and with shouting, and with trumpets, and with cornets.
15:15 And all Judah rejoiced at the oath: for they had sworn with all their heart, and sought him with their whole desire; and he was found of them: and the LORD gave them rest round about."

"In his 24th year, he ordered Jung-foo, the recorder of the Left, to make a Record (A history of the rise and fall of dynasties and States)"

Muh's 24th year = 944 BC. 38 more years to 907 BC.

The 56 of cycle 60 in Muh's first year may not be year 56 but day 56. In 1067 BC day 56 was March 6, the full moon and passover. Thus there may have been a sun miracle on the passover in the time of David.

If Muh reigned from 1067 BC, his 24th year was 1044 BC when David died and Solomon made King of Israel.

"In his 24th year, he ordered Jung-foo, the recorder of the Left to make a record."
The Chinese Classics, p151

Note: "King Muh had come to himself, and was ashamed of his wars, wanderings and extravagance." Thus a sun miracle at that time may have been an omen.

This 24th year of Muh would equal the first year of king Ahab.

"In his (King Muh) 18th year, in the spring, in the first month, he dwelt in the palace of Che, where the princes came and did homage."

Or King Muh began his reign 59 years before King Kung in 907 BC = 968 BC. The 17th lunar day of the 7th month of the Hebrew calendar, Sunday, September 4, 907 BC day 58 of cycle 60. Thus 58 years of King Muh's reign and day 58 of cycle 60, may mark a sun miracle 900 years before Jesus' birth to the day. Thus, perhaps a sun miracle in his 18th year 947 BC, in his 21st year "Duke Wan of Tse died" 944 BC or in this 24th year = 941 BC and either = the three years of no rain of Elijah. Ahab began his reign in 947 BC.

38 years back from 907 BC is this 945 BC. There are many 38 year periods in the Bible that point to Jesus' coming.

"In his 35th year, the people of King entered Seu, when Ts'een, baron of Maou, led his forces, and defeated them near the Tse."

Maou is Taurus, Ts'een is Sagittarius 180° away. This sentence may describe the sun moving from Taurus to Sagittarius. This 35th year of Muh should be 933 BC about the 12th year of Ahab. This 933 BC could be the first year of famine prophesied by Elijah.

1 Kings 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."

If the sun was moved to the other side of earth at the equinox, earth would not need to shift = rather, the sun would not need to move up or down to keep in the same season. If the sun was moved on the perihelion or aphelion (nearest or furthest to the sun) of earth's orbit = a half orbit of 182 days, then there would be no net missing minutes either. Then, earth could flow out of a reverse orbit of the sun in three and a half years, without a trace, or any net missing time.

Thus, in November in 933 BC, the perihelion then in November 25, the sun in Sagittarius = Ts'een, the spring equinox in Taurus = Maou, this half an orbit, plus the three years = the sun could move to the other side of earth without any net missing time and without a trace.

Thus, symbolicly, God may move the sun back again three and a half years later, and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun = "that thou hast turned their heart back again."

1 Kings 18:39 "And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God."

"The people of King, Muh, came with tribute. In his 39th year, he assembled the princes at mount T'oo."

This 38th and 39th year would be three and a half years from his 35th year. The sun may move at the end of the three and a half year famine and be the omen motivating the tribute.

There was a 49th year jubile in 947 BC, counting 49 years back from Joshua's conquest in 1241 BC.

Sun miracles often occured on a year X68 = 100 year intervals to Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD. There is no year zero. King Muh was placed year 56 of cycle 60, 961 BC. However, from Wu in 1174 BC there is a six year gap. So King Muh should begin his reign in 968 BC of 60 years to 907 BC. Then there should be a sun miracle in 968 BC = 1000 years to Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD. And Muh may end his 60 year reign in 907 BC, 900 years before Jesus' birth in 7 BC.

The error of 6 years is evident, King Muh dated to 961 BC, 50th of cycle 60. 60 years to 906 BC! 60 years from 961 BC = 901 BC! Thus the error may be corrected here by six years.

Romans 5:10 "For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life."

Thus we are saved by the 38 years of Jesus' life.

King Kang died in the ninth month, day 56 of cycle 60. Thus 20 years back from 1068 BC is 1088 BC. Day 56 is October 22, 1088 BC. October 22, 1088 BC is the 17th Hebrew day of the 7th Hebrew month. Thus there may have been a sun miracle foretelling Jesus' birth the 17th day of the 7th month, that was an omen to the Chinese to change emperors.

King Kang died in his 24th year or King Kang died in his 26th year. King Kang died in the 9th month on day 56 of cycle. If King Kang died in his 26th year: King Ching 36 years from 1168 BC, King Kang 25 years = 1107 BC = 1100 years before Christ in 7 BC. If King Kang's 12th year was 1122 BC, then King Kang's 26th year must have been 1108 BC ( 1100 years to Jesus' birth in 7 BC). Then the day he died on day 56 of cycle 60 in the ninth month should be the 17th lunar day October 7, 1108 BC.

There are 100 years from Ching to Muh. Thus 100 years from 1168 BC to 1068 BC. 1168 BC - 36 - 42 - 14 = 1076 BC. David died in 1044 BC at 70. 1044 + 70 = 1114. David was king of Judah in his 30th year. David was king of Israel in his 37th year. David fought the Philistines when Saul died when David became king of all Israel. Thus David's 37th year was 1077 BC.

"Note. From king Woo to Muh, the empire was possessed 100 years."

James Legge has a missprint for King Kang's 24th year, instead 44th year, when the Chinese states 24th year. From Wu to Muh to be 100 years, King Kang would have to reign 46 years. Ching 36, Kang 46, Ch'aou 19th = 100. Thus the misprint may have been an effort to make the 100 years from Wu to Muh.

In Wu's 12th year, 1174 BC, Wu became emperor over all China. However, Wu's first year was 12 years earlier, 1186 BC. Muh's first year was written 56 of cycle 60, but not 961 BC but 1081 BC. Wu began to win battles in about 1179 BC. Perhaps 100 years from 1179 BC to 1081 BC.

In the Short chronology, Wu's first year would be 12 years before he became emperor in 1049 BC, = 1061 BC. Thus 100 years later is 961 BC.

Then if Muh's first year was 1081 BC, the sun miracle of David in 1077 BC would be in King Muh's fifth or sixth year.

"In his sixth year, Tan, the Viscount of Sue, came to do homage, when the title of Baron was conferred to him. In his eighth year the chief of the northern T'ang came to do homage."

You will see here many suggested dates for the same sun miracle. Chinese dates in this period are not certain. Bible dates are certain. David's battle against the Philistines when he became King of all Israel must be in 1077 BC. David died in 1044 BC at 70, was King of Israel for 33 years, = 1077 BC.

Then king Kang may have reigned not 26 years but 44 years.

1168 BC - 36 (Ching) - 42 (Kang) - 19 less 3 more years (Ch'aou) = 1068 BC.

"In his 14th year, (Chaou) in the summer, in the fourth month, the regular stars were invisible. In the autumn, in the seventh month, the people of Loo killed their ruler Tsae."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.149.

If the regular stars are not visible in China, the sun must stand still at noon Israel, at sunset in China. Thus, this be a second long day at noon at Gibeon like Joshua's long day for David to get the victory.

Then this battle of David when David became King of Israel must be in 1077 BC. 100 years from Wu's first year 1174 BC to 1074 BC = Muh's first year at the 19th year of Ch'aou. Ch'aou's 14th year about 1078 BC.

This battle of David must have been in the seventh month, about September of 1077 BC. Because the battle when David became King of Israel was six and a half a years after David became king of Judah.

2 Samuel 5:5 "In Hebron he reigned over Judah seven years and six months: and in Jerusalem he reigned thirty and three years over all Israel and Judah."

2 Samuel 5:17 "But when the Philistines heard that they had anointed David king over Israel, all the Philistines came up to seek David; and David heard of it, and went down to the hold.
5:18 The Philistines also came and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim.
5:19 And David enquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I go up to the Philistines? wilt thou deliver them into mine hand? And the LORD said unto David, Go up: for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand.
5:20 And David came to Baalperazim, and David smote them there, and said, The LORD hath broken forth upon mine enemies before me, as the breach of waters. Therefore he called the name of that place Baalperazim.
5:21 And there they left their images, and David and his men burned them.
5:22 And the Philistines came up yet again, and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim.
5:23 And when David enquired of the LORD, he said, Thou shalt not go up; but fetch a compass behind them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees.
5:24 And let it be, when thou hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt bestir thyself: for then shall the LORD go out before thee, to smite the host of the Philistines.
5:25 And David did so, as the LORD had commanded him; and smote the Philistines from Geba until thou come to Gazer."

Isaiah 28:18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
28:19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.
28:20 For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.
28:21 For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.
28:22 Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord GOD of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth."

You may see the same verses in the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Septuagint. Isaiah connects the day of Judgment when Jesus comes again with Joshua's Long Day: Dead Sea Scroll words in bold.

Isaiah 28:19 "From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night sheer terror: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.
28:20 For the bed is shorter for people to stretch themselves on it: and the covering to wrap themselves in it.
28:21 For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.
28:22 Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bonds be made strong: for I have heard from the LORD GOD of hosts a consumption, even determined of the whole earth."

"Strange" work,





Strong's 2114 means to turn aside (for lodging) possibly the sun now lodged on the other side of earth. "Strange?" act,





Strong's 5237 means to recognize, acknowledge, understand, respect, discern. Ends with the letter "He", perhaps a question.



That is, Isaiah may have thought sun miracles to be strange. Isaiah was the one who asked Hezekiah if the sun's shadow should go forward ten steps or backward ten steps. Then he was the one who prayed the sun's shadow should go backward ten steps. He may have understood sun miracles meant the sun moved to the other side of earth. Thus, the word strange meaning to turn aside. Even this may be a prophecy of a sun miracle when Jesus returns.

The Septuagint:

Isaiah 28:21b "he shall perform his works with wrath, even a work of bitterness, and his wrath shall deal strangely, and his destruction shall be strange."

The Valley of Gibeon refers to the head waters of Gibeon down the valley of Ajalon. This was the site of the battle and sun miracle of David against the Philistines soon after he became king of Israel 1076 BC.

Comet Halley has an orbit of 76 years. Then the comet recorded in Wu's first year in 1174 BC may have been comet Halley. Or back from earliest record in Greece 467 BC is 1071 BC about this first year of Wu in 1174 BC with rounding errors of 76 year orbits.

1 Kings 8:59 "And let theseH428 my words,H1697 wherewithH834 I have made supplicationH2603 beforeH6440 the LORD,H3068 beH1961 nighH7138 untoH413 the LORDH3068 our GodH430 dayH3119 and night,H3915 that he maintainH6213 the causeH4941 of his servant,H5650 and the causeH4941 of his peopleH5971 IsraelH3478 at all times,H3117 as the matterH1697 shall require:H3117"

The last few words of this verse are:

1 Kings 8:59 "And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication before the LORD, be nigh unto the LORD our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel at all days, as the matter days."

"Israel at all days, as the matter days" may refer to sun miracles of longer days as required. Even this day may be the feast of tabernacles and a sun miracle on the date, 17th of the seventh month, that Jesus would be born, that brought sudden darkness to China and perhaps light to Israel.

The first temple was begun in May of 1041 BC.

2 Chronicles 3:2 "And he began to build in the second day of the second month, in the fourth year of his reign."

Solomon became King in 1044 BC when King Muh in his 24th year from 1068 BC sent Jung-foo to make a record of the rise and fall of the previous dynasties. Many of these Kings rose and fell when there was a sun miracle. Perhaps there was a sun miracle in Solomon's first year in 1044 BC.

This should be Monday = the second day of the week and lunar month, April 3, 1041 BC. Thus the temple of Jesus' body began to be built the same April 3, 33 AD that Jesus was crucified. The second Hebrew day of the second lunar month from the moon's first appearance Sunday, April 2, 1041 BC.

Thus April 3, 1041 BC was on the Chinese day 40 of cycle 60. 450 years later, September 7, 591 BC, also on day 40 of cycle 60, there was recorded an eclipse when there was no naturally occurring eclipse. Thus perhaps the sun miracle of darkness at the fall of Jerusalem and the captivity on day 40 to the Chinese was an omen. Thus the Chinese recorded the day 40 591 BC, perhaps because of a sun miracle on day 40 1041 BC.

1 Kings 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."

1 Kings 7:1 "But Solomon was building his own house thirteen years, and he finished all his house."

1Kings 8:2 "And all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto king Solomon at the feast in the month Ethanim, which is the seventh month.
8:3 And all the elders of Israel came, and the priests took up the ark."

Thus the temple was dedicated in the seventh month, the same month Jesus was born. The same month Jesus spoke from Isaiah 61 to fulfill the 50 year jubile and begin his three and a half year ministry.

Then a sun miracle in King King's first year 518 BC be when after two years work on the temple ceased. Then work on the second temple resumed in 507 BC. Then in 505 BC there was twilight in King King's 14th year perhaps so that the Israelites could work day and night and thus finish the second temple in the third day of Adar in 504 BC.

This verse in Zechariah 14:6 could describe Saturday night, April 4, 33 AD, when the sun had just set in the east at 6 PM and by 8 PM the sun had brightened for the resurrection sunrise. Thus that night may have not completely darkened and was joined by the day, Sunday. The Holy Spirit then was given that Sunday. At twilight at sunset in Israel the sun is just rising between these mountains. The Okanagan is 10 hours behind Israel. Thus the setting sun on Israel is rising on the Okanagan and may have been depicted here. The red sun standing still at sunrise and moving to the winter sunrise position and back to the summer sunrise position as it travelled in a straight line around the earth for 24 hours.

The sun would appear in British Columbia to move from the August 16 position in the north east to the winter position in the south east and back two and a half times. The Aztecs in Historia general de las cosas de Nueva Espana, BK. VII, Chapter 2: "And when the sun came to rise, when he burst forth, he appeared to be red; he kept swaying from side to side." Thus the sun would move sideways from the summer sunrise position to the winter sunrise position three times in that 60 hour twilight day as in this pictograph:





Okanagan Sunrise

Likewise, when the sun set in the east the Sabbath Jesus was in the grave, the sun should pass three hours further east to give darkness = the evening and the morning were the first day. Then in the Okanagan, the sun would appear to rise a little in the west, before the sun suddenly and brilliantly moved 180° west for the resurrectioin sunrise.

The last day of the feast of tabernacles Saturday September 14, 32 AD is called the great day of the feast, the 22nd of the lunar month. Jesus may have spoke from Isaiah 55:1 August 16, 32 AD or September 14, 32 AD.

Isaiah 55:1 "Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price."

John 7:37 "In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water."

A few verses previous is:

Isaiah 54:12 "I shall make thy Suns rubies"

- Which may be misinterpreted in the King James "I shall make thy windows agates". The sun standing still in the sky may have been red like a ruby to leave the same daily coral line. Then also, the night Jesus was crucified, April 3, 33 AD, the moon was like blood may have been from the sun standing still on the other side of the earth like a ruby reflected in the moon. The lunar eclipse April 3, 33 AD was partial with no colour. Thus the claim the blood moon of Joel was a naturally occurring lunar eclipse is false.

Joel 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."

The moon reflects the light of the sun. Thus if the sun changed its colour to red from yellow the full moon would reflect a blood moon. If the colour of the sun was changed the sun probably was moved with earth's rotation to produce a long night as well.

Perhaps the sun rose in the west Saturday, April 4, 33 AD and set in the east before rising at the third hour of the night in the east, suddenly and brilliantly on the resurrection morning. Moreover, the next line of Isaiah 54:12 "I will make thy gates carbuncles". Carbuncle when held up to the sun loses its deep tinge and looks exactly like burning coal. Jesus was in the temple, like the heavenly temple in Isaiah 54:12, when he spoke these words. The flaming and sparkling gem may be Jesus the light of life.

Leviticus 23:36 "Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein."

Perhaps August 16, 32 AD:

John 7:37 "In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
7:40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet."

Judges 5:19 "Kings came; they fought; then the kings of Canaan fought in Taanach by the waters of Megiddo, they took no gain of silver.
5:20 The stars fought from the heavens; from their courses they fought with Sisera. The Kishon river swept them away,"

Joshua 11:5 "And when all these kings were met together, they came and pitched together at the waters of Merom, to fight against Israel."

The waters of Megiddo and the waters of Merom may be the same place and the same battle. The waters may have rippled while the sun revolved around the earth causing a slight tremor.

Habakkuk 1:5 "Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you."

Habakkuk 3:8 "Did Jehovah burn against rivers? was your anger against the rivers? Was your furry against the sea? For you ride on horses; your chariots of Salvation.
3:9b You have cut through the earth with rivers.
3:10 They saw you; mountains trembled. The storm of water passed over. The deep gave its voice and lifted up his hands on high.
3:11 The sun and moon stood still in their dwelling. At the light of your arrows they go, at the shining of thy gleaming spear."

The sun moved at Emperor Wu's spear in 1174 BC and at Lu Yang's spear probably 458 BC when the altar was cleansed. The real reason was for God's people in Israel. Nevertheless, the sun moved, to stay at the noon position while earth rotated, for Joshua's spear about August 24, 1241 BC.

"At the light of your arrows they go" Joshua may have understood night and day are a result of earth's rotation. Then Joshua would understand for the sun to stand still in the sky, God must move the sun around the earth near the speed of light, 1/30th the speed of light. Then 24 hours later the sun would move from the noon position to set in the east in six hours. The sun would move 1/15th the speed of light. Then the sun would be travelling east against Joshua's arrows to the west down Bethoron and to Makkedah. Joshua's spear would glitter in the noon sun light. How much more so from the blood of the enemy Joshua fought that day? The blood may also speak of Jesus' sacrifice. The sun and moon standing still in the sky the Israelites knew were actually moving with earth's rotation.

Thus the word "go" when they were standing still in the sky. The sun must travel one thirtieth the speed of light to appear to stand still in the sky. Thus the sun's movement was like lightning, gleaming while it stood still in the sky.

John 19:33 "But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:
19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water."

Joshua and Gideon, fought on the same day, August 24, 1241 BC. Barak and Deborah fought on the same day as Joshua at the battle of Merom, February 15, 1240 BC.

Perhaps these verses in the New Testament are on the same day:

John 8:12 "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."

John 7:51 is followed immediately by John 8:12 in the codex sinaiticus. Perhaps the sun stood still from John 7 to John 9, and Jesus spoke these words while the sun stood still perhaps for 60 hours or 12 hours. Then perhaps on the same day on the Sabbath August 16, 32 AD:

John 9:1 "And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
9:2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
9:3 "Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
9:5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world."

John 9:7 "And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing."

The blind man would see his reflection in the water for the first time. He may have seen the water ripple while the sun revolved around the earth.

A town in Estonia hundreds of years ago, employed a man under the gate of the city to have a candle always burning, and himself stare at a bowl of water. If the water showed a ripple as from an approaching army, he was to come up and warn the town of an attack. Eventually the town became part of the country side, so this defence was no longer necessary.

John 7 - 9 may have been one very long day, 60 extra hours of day light. A 72 hour day. The parallel may be Joshua's long day in Joshua 10:12. Jesus is really the Hebrew name Joshua, meaning Salvation. A sun miracle on the first day of the first month March 6, 29 AD can be followed by a sun miracle on Yom Kippur, the 10th day of the 7th month = half an orbit of 186 days.

A sun miracle on the 14th day, passover, 186 days later is the last day of the feast of tabernacles, the 22nd day of the 7th month.

Such as from March 16, 32 AD to September 16, 32 AD.

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 Big Middle of the year.

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 the 72 hours, 60 hours + 12 hours natural night, long night was written down at the time August 16, 32 AD by this Kim Bu Sik.

72 hours of night is this same three whole days.

Isaiah 60:19 "The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.
60:20 Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended."

Perhaps the same day - possibly Saturday, August 16, 32 AD as recorded. Actually the 15th date must really be the 15th day of the moon = full moon. In 32 AD this was August 9:





Thus this was 186 days from the first day of Chinese spring = the half = the middle of the Chinse calendar. Chinese spring was 45 days before the Vernal Equinox, March 22. Thus 22+ 23 = 45, February 5, 32 AD; 186 days later is the full moon August 9, 32 AD.

John 10:21 "Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?"

Earth must complete 360° in reverse in 363 days instead of 365 days because earth's reverse orbit is sped up 48 hours.

There would need to be a sun miracle also at the lunar eclipse at sunset on October 7, 32 AD, perhaps a sunset followed by a sunrise. Then the sun must stand still for 36 hours, or 60 hours, or 84 hours, that Friday night, perhaps at the lunar eclipse after sunset April 3, 33 AD 179 days later.

Then there would need to be a sun miracle on the fifteenth day of Kislew the lunar month at the lunar eclipse October 7, 32 AD and earth flow into a reverse orbit of the sun to April 3, 33 AD and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun. Perhaps Wednesday October 8, 32 AD, after the sun had set, the sun rose in the east at sevenfold brightness immediately. The brightness with the sun at sevenfold at sunrise October 8, 32 AD, best I can determine, may have blinded some if they stared at the brightened sun. However, his disciples were looking to Jesus not the sun.

About 10 days later would be the dedication of the temple, Kislew 25, October 18, 32 AD. However, the days from the dedication may have been from November 29, 31 AD. In the Syrian church the name Kislew applied to the third and fourth month. Thus the Jews may have celebrated the dedication of the temple in the fourth month. The first month is the same as the seventh month. Thus there would be 490 days from the dedication of the temple in the second month of Kislew November 29, 31 AD to Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD.

See E. J. Brill's first encyclopedia of Islam 1913-1936, p.727.

John 10:22 "And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.
10:23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch."

Jesus was at the temple on the 25 day of Kislew, Saturday, October 18, 32 AD, There may have been a sun miracle 10 days before, Wednesday, October 8, 32 AD.

The temple was rededicated Saturday, December 12, 164 BC. The day in December 164 BC the sun perhaps never rose but retreated from the predawn position on Israel to night position for 7 X 12 hours plus there had already been 12 hours of night. Thus the eight nights of Hanukkah. Then the sun would return to the meridian in China, 7 X 12 hours later, twice that day. On the same day Saturday December 12, 164 BC: After the sun had returned to the meridian once, Hsin-yuan P'ing told the emperor, "I expected the sun to rise to the meridian twice [in one day.]" After a while the sun really rose to the meridian again. For this reason the emperor changed his 17th year to his first year. 164 BC was a 49th year jubile; from 1241 BC to 33 AD. Thus 4 X 49 back from 33 AD, no year zero, is 164 BC = Hanukkah.

Jesus must be born September 12, 7 BC. Then 280 days earlier Jesus must be conceived by the Holy Ghost is about December 6, or December 12, 8 BC.

The temple was rededicated exactly three years after it was desecrated. Thus, the sun may move December 12, 167 BC and earth flow into a reverse orbit of the sun, and move back again three years to the day December 12, 164 BC and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun.

"In the summer of the thirteenth year, 167 BC, the soverign said, We have heard that according to the way of Heaven..In the fifth month, 29 May-26 June 167 BC"
The Grand Scribe's Records, Vol II, p.170.

There may have been a sun miracle, Friday, March 25, 168 BC to foretell Jesus' crucifixion, Friday, April 3, 33 AD. Thus, the obsession with the way of Heaven in the following years, and months.

Notes: "From the context of the sentence, we find that before the first ta li a yellow dragon appeared, and there was accordingly a harvest, and before the second ta li, Hsin Yuan-p'ing numerated various auspicous signs and suggested to the emperor that he should sacrifice to the Supreme Deity so to act in accord with these signs."
The Grand Scribes Records, Volume II, Wen the Felial, Basic Annals 10, p.175 - p.176

This 164 BC was a jubile in the 49 year cycle from 1241 BC. From 1242 subtract 49 year cycles till you come to 164 BC.

A coin minted possibly in 163 BC has the image of a reversed year, perhaps indicating a reverse orbit in 163 BC: "Turning to Svoronos 1486, the formula on this coin is not given as LLG (year 33), as one would expect. Instead it is written as the mirror image of A-GLG, i.e. there is no year sign (L), but two reversed gammas, one of which must be understood to represent an inversion of the year sign." Derived label is "Ptolemy VI Philometer, 181/0-145 B.C."

"But in the west a star will shine which they call 'cometes', a sign to mortals of sword, famine, death, destruction of leaders and of great illustrious men." Cometography: a catalog of comets By Gary W. Kronk, p.9. This was written about 163 BC. The sign may have been the glory of God accompanying the sun miracle at the beginning of 163 BC, December 12, 164 BC.

The sun may have set in the east then rose in the west to appear in the meridian, noon, position. Thus the sun rose to the meridian again. Then in Israel, the sun would not rise, then rise in the west and set in the east. Then perhaps the sun suddenly ascended from the east brilliantly like the resurrection morning. That next day being Sunday December 13, 164 BC.

The emperor was given a jade bird holding a red pearl in its beak. This was a depiction of the phoenix angel carrying the red pearl, the sun, in its beak as it travelled with it to the other side of the earth.

Red or pink pearls were very rare and only the emperor was allowed to wear the pearl. I saw this depiction of the dragon chasing the sun pearl in the Jade Factory in Beijing. You can see the depiction of the sun pearl in the center and dragons and phoenixes chasing it from the temple of heaven at Beijing.

Also at the temple of heaven there were dozens of phoenixes surrounding it with their beaks open, round as if to carry the sun. Likewise dragons. When there was an eclipse the Chinese wrote the dragon ate the sun. Perhaps there were other times when the dragon did eat the sun, moved the sun suddenly, and carried it to the other side of earth.

"Adoration of Ra on the day of the month whereon he saileth in the boat. Homage to thee within his boat, rising, twice, shining with rays..making to rejoice mankind for millions of years according to his will, giving his face to the hamemet, Khepera within the boat."
The Egyptian Book of the Dead, p.143. by E.A. Wallis Budge.

The sun rising twice and shining with rays may be a short day sun miracle. The sun must brighten several times to leave the same daily coral line.

Joseph Needham wrote that the Chinese in 1250 BC had counted the days from solstice to solstice, 1 1/2 years to be 548 days. Which is what it is. Joseph Needham stated this disproved the long day of Joshua. However, this model leaves no net missing time and no missing days of the calendar. We know this because of the total solar eclipse in China on day 53 of cycle 60, March 4, 1250 BC. Thus the cycle was unbroken. Thus the missing day in the Missing Day Story was not missing. Only, there was missing time in the sped up reverse orbit till the end of the year. Joshua's long day counted as a day. Even though the sun must have rose in the west that day, then a 24 hour day at noon, and the sun set in the east, this day was counted and not missing as best as I can determine.

Yet earth was not in orbit of the sun that day, the sun revolved around the earth that day, so there may be a way in science to detect such a day and call it missing. Certainly the 24 hours of sped up earth for that half reverse orbit was missing till the long days that left no net missing time.

There may have been two added months of Adar in 33 AD. Then there would be Adar I, Adar II, and Adar III. There was not an opportunity to add a month in 30 AD the jubile year from August 29 AD, to 30 AD the end of the 50th year of the jubile. So perhaps two months of Adar had to be added in February of 33 AD.

Just before the hour of darkness at the crucifixion and the 72 hour long night:

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.
12:36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them."

An example of how half orbits work may be seen in the 179 days between a lunar eclipse on the first day of the feast of tabernacles and the following passover. Two of these half orbits adds up to about one hour of net missing time. There were lunar eclipses October 19, 31 AD and April 14, 32 AD, October 7, 32 AD and April 3, 33 AD. It takes the sun 52 minutes to revolve around the earth at the speed of light. The sun would become dark. If it took one hour, the sun would travel at 80% of the speed of light and there would be a 60% time difference = 60% dimmer. I saw a 40% solar eclipse July 10, 6PM, 2002. There was absolutely no discernable dimming of the sky. I looked through a solar filter and saw the moon cover part of the sun - do not look directly at the sun.

Thus the sun would have to be moved at 100% of the speed of light to be in total darkness.

The day light seemed 100% normal. 30 minutes missing time on earth against 30 minutes missing time on the sun. Thus there could be no net missing time. However, the sun would not become darkened at all. Far more likely, the sun travelled 99%, or even 100%, the speed of light and the sun was totally darkened. Thus the sun was darkened in its going forth as the Bible states. CERN has accelerated neutrinos faster than the speed of light. Thus it is not impossible for God to move the sun at the speed of light without major consequences.

The winter half orbit from equinox to equinox, September 22 to March 20 is 178 days and 17 hours. 178.8 days / 365.24 X 48 hours = 23 hours and 30 minutes. Thus, there is a left over 30 minutes missing time in a winter half reverse orbit.

Then this took 52 minutes. Then the difference between 30 minutes and 30 minutes, 60 minutes, missing time from the two half reverse orbits is 8 minutes. The sun must travel the speed of light for 60 minutes. Then if the sun travelled west 360° in 60 minutes, it must travel an additional 1/24 or 15° west to be in the 1 PM position one hour later. Now, if the sun continued at the speed of light for 3/24, 45°, for three hours worth of earth's rotation, the sun could travel at the speed of light for a full 60 minutes. Then there would be no net missing time and there would only be three hours left till sunset. Thus the sun would be darkened from noon for one hour and appear at the 3 PM position on a sundial.

Then an observer would say the darkness was so great it seemed like three hours and there also were only three hours left in the day as if the sun were darkened from noon till 3 PM.

The sixth hour is the sixth hour since sunrise, 12 PM, and the ninth hour is the ninth hour since sunrise, 3 PM. Thus the writers of the Gospels would see the shadow on the sundial before the sun was darkened and after the sun reappeared, but not know how many hours had elapsed.

Matthew 27:45 "Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour."

This may describe one complete hour of darkness at noon April 3, 33 AD. One hour of missing time to counter one hour of elapsed time in darkness. This leaves no net missing time.

The day of Exodus out of Egypt should have been on Friday, March 30, 1281 BC. Then there may have been an hour of darkness at noon in Egypt and sudden darkness at sunset in China on day 35 of cycle 60, Thursday, March 29, 1281 BC:

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

The three days darkness may have affected all of the Egyptian side of earth. The Polenesians may have been on the divide of light and darkness: "The Hervey Island Legend: Te-eroi and Te-tareva heard there was a land of light. They built two canoes 'weary of darkness' and 'sleepless nights'.. "
Velikovsky's Sources

"The sun has perished out of heaven and an evil mist hovers over all"
Homer's Odyssey

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

"The sun - it has come to pass it riseth not."
Papyrus Anastasi IV

The Anastasi VI dates from the fifth year of Sethos II, 1277 BC = five years after Pharaoh Merneptah died at the end of the sothis cycle in 1281 BC at the crossing of the Red/Reed Sea of the Children of Israel in Exodus. Thus Anastasi IV describes the sun miracle of the three days of darkness and the devastation of Egypt in the Exodus five years earlier. Thus Anastasi 4 was written five years earlier than Anastasi 6.

Anastasi IV describes the destruction in the 19th dynasty, from Ramses I, of Merneptah.

Exodus 10:21 "And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.
10:22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:
10:23 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings."

"The land is not light."
Anastasi IV

This three days of darkness might have been the new moon February 14, 1281 BC on day 52 of cycle 60, the Exodus March 30, 1281 BC. This would be the first day of the Chinese spring being 45 days before the spring equinox April 1, 1281 BC.

However, the new moon March 15, 1281 BC is more likely. The next verse starts with the new month, Abib. If God moved the sun He would have to move the moon. If the moon was not a new moon but away from the sun, the shining moon would lighten Egypt. Thus the new moon. It was recorded in Ch'aou's 14th year, perhaps 1172 BC, the regular stars did not appear. Perhaps there was this same thick darkness as in Egypt.

So with the night of seven nights of the night of the crucifixion, there may be two autumn/winter half orbits that would need one hour of darkness to counter the 30 minutes and 30 minutes of missing time. This is because earth's orbit is elliptical.

To be like Jesus' crucifixion the sun should be darkened for one hour at noon Israel/Egypt time on a Friday, sunset time in China. Then three days of darkness like the sabbaton the disciples rested. Sabbaton does not just mean Sabbath. It means a Sabbath of seven days. The disciples rested a Sabbaton not a Sabbath. That is, they rested a Sabbath of seven nights = 3 X 24 hours of darkness, the three days Jesus was in the grave.

"The divination was on day chia-yin [51]: There was another eclipse, should it be reported to...? (Chui-ho, 465)

There was a solar eclipse on day 51, 80% covered, visible from China, July 16, 1276 BC:





There must have been an earlier solar eclipse. The next earlier one, if not too cloudy that day, may have been on day 39 September 17, 1279 BC, 50% covered at Yin, solar eclipse. The Exodus was probably March 30, 1281 BC when there were sun miracles. Thus, perhaps the emphasis "there was another eclipse." perhaps including the three days of darkness and other sun movements of the Exodus. There may have been sun miracles on into 1280 BC as God gave the Israelites signs and longer days to fight battles in that first two years recorded in Exodus and Numbers. Such as Joshua's battle with Amalek and the day Joshua and the 12 spies returned, and Joshua said "let us go up at once, their shade is departed from them."

The children of Israel did not go up the day the spies gave their report. This day may have been on the 9th of Av, as by tradition, perhaps Friday, July 12, 1280 BC or Sunday, August 11, 1280 BC. The seventh day of the seventh month September 7, 591 BC, was the destruction of Jerusalem. Joshua's long day must also be the seventh day, but of the eighth month, August 24, 1241 BC.

Hear again is a diagram of two years reverse orbit. The sun may move forward and back on the same date a number of times during earth's two year reverse orbit. Thus the three days of darkness, +36 hours, the sun rise in the west and set in the east after the Passoverr +36 hours, the sun suddenly rise in the east at the crossing of the Reed/Red Sea, - 12 hours, the long sunset of Moses in Exodus 17, +12 hours and the sun move back, earth in reverse + 12 hours, and the long day one year later when "their shade was departed from them" and "they to go up at once" +12 hours and the sun move back February 14,. 1279 BC + 12 hours; all add up to 96 hours, = 48 + 48 hours of two years of sped up reverse orbit countered by the long days.





Here you see three sun miracles in Exodus, every 45 days Such as February 14, 1281 BC = the three days darkness. More likely the three days of darkness was the new moon March 15, 1281 BC. Nevertheless, God gave Pharaoh time, respite. Whereupon Pharaoh hardened his heart. The Passover must be March 30, 1281 BC. The long sunset of Moses in Exodus 17, May 15, 1281 BC. Thus the sun could move February 14, 1281 BC and 45 days later move 180° back on the spring equinox, March 31, 1281 BC and 180° forward Sunday April 1, 1281 BC, for the Exodus and crossing of the Red/Reed Sea, then back 45 days later at the beginning of the third month May 16, 1281 BC when the sun stood still in the west for Moses while Joshua fought Amalek.

The sun would not have to move up or down to keep earth in the same season when it moved back and forth the night of the Exodus and the next day at the crossing of the Red/Reed Sea on the vernal equinox, March 31, 1281 BC and April 1, 1281 BC.

Then the sun could have moved back 180° Pentecost, Saturday, May 19, 1281 BC, to stand still in the west 12 hours giving light for Joshua to fight Amalek. Likewise, the sun could move to the other side of earth again May 19, 1281 BC and earth flow into a reverse orbit of the sun. Then one year later the sun must move back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun. This may have been the end of the 40 days when the twelve spies returned, Saturday, May 18, 1280 BC when Joseph declared Israel should go up at once perhaps knowing the sun must return the next day and give the Israelites a long day to defeat the Canaanites.





Wu Yi moved the capital from Yin to north of the Ho in his third year perhaps 1281 BC being afraid of the omen of the three days of darkness of Exodus. Wending moved the capital back to Yin when he became emperor in 1251 BC. Then the question "Were the oracle bone for the eclipse on day 51 found at Yin?" There is a note in the Chinese Classics that though his father had moved (in the third year - 1281 BC), W'o stayed at Yin. Then perhaps the oracle bones found at Yin covered the entire period from 1285 BC to 1235 BC.

Wu Yi moved the capital in his third year, 1281 BC, the year of the Exodus. This may have been because of the three days of darkness in Egypt, and also in China. This being taken as an omen to move the capital. Wu Yi moved the capital again in his 15th year. From 1283 BC 15 years is 1268 BC. Thus God may have moved the sun in 1268 BC, 1300 years before his son Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD. Thus both in 1281 BC and 1268 BC Wu Yi reacted in fear of sun miracles.

You can see on this Excel spreadsheet, 61.xlsx or this PDF: 61.pdf that the eclipse on day 51, July 16, 1276 BC is correct. However, none of the dates where the sun had a chi; 17, 18, 25, 42, work. However a day 16, July 27, 1239 BC during Wending's reign, may appear just before sunset. Thus the day may have been counted as day 17 because it happened at sunset. There was a sunrise and sunset worship when partial solar eclipses may have been noticed. Then this solar eclipse may have been noticed when only at 30%. The other days, 18, 25 and 42 do not appear to fall on any solar eclipse date. If a chi does not mean a solar eclipse, it must mean something else.

There is the possibility the Exodus was Friday, March 30, 1281 BC. The Sojourn into Egypt from the 430th sothis year from 2737 BC = 2307 BC. This was in the second year of famine. The second year of famine had started April 1, 2307 BC. Thus Jacob's sojourn into Eypt was Friday, March 30, 1281 BC. Then the Exodus Friday, March 30, 1281 BC the selfsame day, Friday, April 1, 2307 BC was at the end of the second year. Then the sojourn into Egypt was from 2307 BC, 2300 years before the birth of Christ in 7 BC.

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

The Chih, blazing sun, on day 51, February 13, 1281 BC, could have been the day before the three days of darkness, February 14, 1281 BC. The sun moving to one side of earth, earth flowing out of the reverse orbit of the sun, then the sun moving back and earth flowing into a reverse orbit of the sun again.

Darkness in the Bible may not refer to a solar eclipse but to sun miracles.

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."

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."

The shadow of the sun would move ahead from the noon position while the sun was darkened and appear in the 3 PM position. Thus the shadows being lengthened. Thus a connection to the Captivity when God turned his back on his people and the hour of darkness when God turned his back on his Son to atone for our sins.





They did not have clocks. Their only way to measure time was a sundial. Thus, the darkness at the sixth hour = noon on the sundial. Then when the sun reappeared, the shadow on the sundial was at the ninth hour. If the sun was moved around the earth 360° in 50 minutes at the speed of light, the sun would reappear at the ninth hour on the sundial. This even though there was only almost one hour of darkness.

The sun would have to be moved at 100% the speed of light, or else the sun would not be completely dark because of relativity. At 80% the speed of light, the sun would only be dimmed 60%.

Moreover, at 6:20 PM when the moon rose that night there was a lunar eclipse of the moon. The sun must be ruby red while standing still. Therefore, the moon may not have appeared blood red from the lunar eclipse. The moon may have appeared blood red in reflection of the red sun. Either earth's shadow on the moon displayed some of this red glow or the moon was actually bright ruby blood red. Perhaps the sun moved with earth's rotation 180° and earth flowed out of the winter half reverse orbit at the time of the lunar eclipse. The moon was at the horizon, thus the moon may have been red like blood only hours after Jesus' crucifixion. Thus also the sun and moon should stand still in the sky for at least 12 hours.

Probably the sun and moon stood still for 60 hours, a 72 hour night. -12 hours October 7, +60 hours April 3, -12 hours April 5, +12 hours October 9, 33 AD = the 48 hours. The setting sun would be over the Americas where there were no written records. And records of the lunar eclipse to start and end the reverse orbit, exactly half an orbit apart, would not divulge the fact the lunar eclipse lasted more than 12 hours rather than one hour.

There is a Lantern Festival in China for the full moon on the vernal equinox March/April. One origin story is that a beautiful crane - phoenix - flew down from heaven to earth. The Jade Emperor burned the city that tried to kill the crane. The Chinese may have seen the angel God sent to move the sun - the phoenix. The Greek word phoenix means the color of purple red or crimson. Perhaps the sun was purple red like a ruby when standing still and crimson when it rose suddenly in the east. The Chinese also used these colors to describe the sun. That lanterns were used may be from this 72 hours of darkness - China would experience the same lunar eclipse April 3, 33 AD. Lanterns would be for light, and after this long of a period, people would be coming out of their houses.

There is a Pure Brightness festival Qingming Festival April 5, the same day the sun must travel 180° west over China and rise in the east at Jesus' resurrection April 5, 33 AD. This is counted 104 days from the winter solstice on the full moon. "16th year, (of King Seang from 650 BC), first year of duke Wan of Tsin, Tsin put Tsze to death. 653 BC - 18 = 635 BC, 650 BC - 16 = 635 BC. Which could be the Passover Josiah kept in his 18th year of his life:

2 Chronicles 35:18 "And there was no passover like to that kept in Israel from the days of Samuel the prophet; neither did all the kings of Israel keep such a passover as Josiah kept, and the priests, and the Levites, and all Judah and Israel that were present, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
35:19 In the eighteenth year of the reign of Josiah was this passover kept."

Josiah reigned from about 644 BC. His 18th year was about 626 BC. However, the 18th year of his life from 653 BC would be 636 BC. Josiah was born in 652 BC = the 49 year jubile from 1241 BC.

Then the sun must travel east. Then also, if the sun (and moon) travelled east the same 45° it travelled west past 360° the sun would be right back where it was originally. And there would be no net missing time. This would mean the sun and moon would stand still in the Americas and Israel for 15 hours instead of 12 hours, or rather 63 hours instead of 60 hours. This would also mean the night of the crucifixion there were 60 more hours to Jesus' resurrection. Then there had to be more than 60 hours from Jesus' crucifixion at noon Friday to early morning Sunday. Thus also in the proper way we speak of 24 hours in a day/night Jesus must have rose after about 90 hours since the crucifixion on the third day.

Also, there is the possibility the sun and moon revolved around the earth two and a half times, 60 hours, and the lunar eclipse lasted 60 hours, and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun.

In a letter from Pontius Pilate to Tiberius he stated: "And the moon, which was like blood, did not shine all night long, although it was at the full, and the stars and Orion made lamentation over the Jews, because of the transgression committed by them." - Perhaps the moon did not shine all night long because at moon rise the moon was in a lunar eclipse.





Then Jesus' resurrection would be in the third sunrise at 9 PM Saturday April 4, 33 AD. Three times 24 hours, 72 hours, - three whole days that Friday night, 12 hours that day light day of Saturday till the sudden sunrise at the third hour after sunset.

Matthew 12:40 "For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."

Luke 23:56 "And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbaton day according to the commandment."

Matthew 28:1 "After the Sabbaths, at the dawning into the first of the Sabbaths, Mary Magdelene and the other Mary came to see the grave."

The word for Sabbath was Sabbaton. This may mean by extension a se'nnight = seven nights. Thus the Sabbath night beginning the Friday night of Jesus' crucifixion may have lasted seven nights 7 X 12 hours, 84 hours, longer. Thus this sabbaton night may be like the first Hanukkah where the sun did not rise for eight nights. That is, the sun did not rise for 7 nights plus the current normal eighth night. Then from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday should be 108 hours. Then Jesus resurrection and the sudden sunrise two hours later. Thus 110 hours from sunset Friday to sunrise Sunday. Joshua's long day appears to have been on a Friday. That day the five kings were hung on trees and taken down at sunset and buried in a cave. The significance of the long day of Joshua may be to point to the sacrifice of Christ.

The following seven weeks ended at Pentecost, the feast of Shavout, the Festival of first fruits. A night of seven Sabbaths is equal to seven weeks of Sabbath days. Pentecost is the day Boaz purchased and redeemed Ruth's inheritance. Jesus redeemed us when he rose from the dead on the Sunday, the first day of 50 to Pentecost. Pentecost is the day the Holy Ghost was given to Jesus' disciples when devout men were gathered at Jerusalem.

Matthew 27:62 "Now the next day that followedG3326(575) the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,
27:63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three daysG2250(G5610) I will rise again.
27:64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.
27:65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can.
27:66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch."

Matthew was originally written in Hebrew and later translated to Greek. Thus the Hebrew word for "follow" may have been written to describe the sun rising in the west and following the previous days east to west travel in reverse = west to east.

H310 achar = away from. = "following" in Joshua 22:19. If the sun rose away from the west where the sun set, the sun must travel west to east that day.

"So the last error be worse than the first" may be because of the sign of a sun miracle that day that weighed on their concience. Many would take the sun miracle that day as a sign from God that Jesus is the Son of God. Perhaps the sun revolving and standing still on the far side of earth for a long night. Then Jesus would be in the grave 3 X 24 hours = three whole days:

Matthew 12:39 "But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
12:40 "For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."

John 2:19 "Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."

Also, the sun rising in the west and setting in the east, following the previous day's path of the sun through the day in reverse.

Perhaps on this Sabbath day after an 84 hour night 7 X 12, 3 X 24, the sun rose in the west and set in the east. The sun would then retrace its path from the previous day, and thus follow the previous day. Thus the concern of the Pharisees. And thus the urgency to seal the stone. The Sabbath day may have been only a few hours, then the sun set in the east. The word for day is G5610 hora meaning hour. Thus this could be the third day of one hour of darkness before sunrise. The few hours of day light after the darkness from 3PM to 6PM Friday April 3, 33 AD, a few hours of day light Saturday, then a few hours of day light again Sunday. Likewise the word for followed is G575 apo for completion or reversal, "X and setting". This may mean the sun rose in the west and set in the east that Sabbath.

Thus the day following the preparation day of Friday, may have been a reversal, the sun rising in the west and descending in the east.

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

Psalm 65:8 "And are afraid those living in the furthest limits of Your signs; the outgoings of the morning and evening You make to rejoice."

God may have made the sun to set in the east and rise in the west. Then the birds would sing as they do in the morning. The word for rejoice is to sing.

Leviticus 4:13 "And if the whole congregation of Israel sin through ignorance, and the thing be hid from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done somewhat against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which should not be done, and are guilty;
4:14 When the sin, which they have sinned against it, is known, then the congregation shall offer a young bullock for the sin, and bring him before the tabernacle of the congregation.
4:15 And the elders of the congregation shall lay their hands upon the head of the bullock before the LORD: and the bullock shall be killed before the LORD.
4:16 And the priest that is anointed shall bring of the bullock's blood to the tabernacle of the congregation:
4:17 And the priest shall dip his finger in some of the blood, and sprinkle it seven times before the LORD, even before the vail."

Perhaps the High Priest made atonement for Israel for the crucifixion. Then while he was performing this sacrifice before the vail, the veil was rent in twain. Then there was 7 X 12, a seven nights in one. The Sabbaton.

Luke 24:1 "Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning,G901 G3722 they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them."

G901; profound (as going down), literally or figuratively: - deep, very early. The Hebrew would be "bow". Sometimes when the sun "bow" it meant a sun miracle that the sun went down. Such as in Amos when he wrote "the sun shall go down at noon" which was a sun miracle and not a naturally occurring eclipse.
from G939: From baino (to walk); a pace (base), that is, (by implication) the foot: - foot.
Perhaps the sun was going down in the east having passed from the west to east the Sabbath day. Then the sun brightened and suddenly ascended.
G3722 from the same as G3735; dawn (as sun rise, rising of light); by extension morn: - early in the morning.
Thus, it was written they came very early in the morning because the sun had just set in the east, now rising suddenly from the east.

Luke 24:9 "And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.
24:10 It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles.
24:11 And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not."

The reason they seemed as idle tales may be because of the Sabbaton of Friday night being seven times longer than usual. They may have thought they were idle in this long period of time.

Isaiah 59:7 "Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.
59:8 The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.
59:9 Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness.
59:10 We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noon day as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men.
59:11 We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us."

Perhaps there was a long night of 36 or 60 or 84 more hours the night of Jesus' crucifixion. Thus when it should be noon 24 hours after they had crucified our Lord on the sixth hour of the day - noon, there was still darkness.

Isaiah 59:19 "So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, 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."

Perhaps the sun rose in the west during Jesus' ministry. Perhaps the sun rose in the west for Gideon's long night, August 23, 1241 BC. Perhaps the sun rose in the west the night of the crucifixion. Then the sun rose in the east suddenly Saturday after the end of the Sabbath at sunset, to rise in the east at 9 PM and it suddenly became 10 AM. Gideon's war was won before the sun rose - brilliantly in the east. Jesus won the war over death and was resurrected before the sun rose. Thus the whole reverse orbit year from Joshua's long day has fulfilled scripture in Jesus. Joshua had victory at Gibeon by Jerusalem over the five kings on Joshua's long day. The war was over. All that was left were the battles. After the battle of Merom, the war was definitely over.

Perhaps the sun set like normal the night of Jesus' crucifixion. Then at 6:30 there was a naturally occurring lunar eclipse. Perhaps the eclipsed moon stood still for 36 hours, or 60 hours, or 84 hours, and the sun and moon moved 540°, or more, east as earth rotated, then the sun rose in the west where it still was, and passed west east through the sky to set in the east 12 hours later, the sun and moon moving 360°. Then the darkness at noon may be the dim sun passing overhead, going east. Isaiah 59:10b "we stumble at noon day as in the night" may refer to both the darkness when Jesus was on the cross and the darkness of the dim day on the Sabbath when they should have been resting. Isaiah 59:9b "we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness".

Then three hours after the sun set in the east, the sun naturally rose in the east at the beginning of the second watch. Or the sun brilliantly travelled east west and ascended suddenly in the east from the 3 AM position to the 3 PM position, 180°. The sun could travel the 180° west in 12 hours leaving a six hour day. Then Saturday April 4, 33 AD may have been like the sun retreating to the horizon for Hezekiah. The sun descending from the west Saturday, then rising Sunday in the east.

Isaiah 38:8 "Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten steps, by which steps it was gone down."

Then the sun rose in the east. Perhaps like Gideon Jesus returned from the dead before the sun suddenly ascended in the east.

"And when Isaiah had asked him what sign he desired to be exhibited, he desired that he would make the shadow of the sun, which he had already made to go down ten steps [or degrees] in his house, to return again to the same place, and to make it as it was before." Josephus in the Antiquities of the Jews 10:2:29. Thus, the sun may have travelled west from dawn in the east for a short day of a few hours. Then the sun may have traveled east to set in the east where the sun was before. Nevertheless, the sun may have risen suddenly in the east on the third day when Hezekiah was promised healing. Perhaps the sun rose in the west to set in the east on Saturday. Then rose brilliantly and suddenly in the east Sunday, and the brightness of the sun had a part in healing Hezekiah. See Malachi 4:2..

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

This could mean the sun rose in the west and set in the east. That the law of God was brought back to as it was in the beginning with Adam and Eve.

The fast in Isaiah 58 may have been when Jesus was in the tomb and his disciples were fasting because he was taken away from them. Jesus rose from the dead Saturday night at the beginning of the second watch. Then the sun suddenly rose at 9 PM to the 10 AM noon position.

Isaiah 58:8 "Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.
58:9 Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;
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:"

A resurrection life. A new birth.

Isaiah 66:7 Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.
66:8 Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children."

Psalm 37:5 "Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
37:6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday."

Isaiah 60:1 "Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
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.
60:3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising."

Thus there may have been a long Friday night, the night of Jesus' crucifixion. Then the sun rise in the west and set in the east and the sky be dark for a few hours. Then the sun must arise brilliantly and suddenly in the east.

Acts 2:19 "And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved."

Acts 2:37 "Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?"

The coming destruction came on the seventh day of the fifth month Saturday August 4, 70 AD or Saturday September 1, 70 AD, just as it had September 7, 591 BC.

Acts 2:42 "And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers."

Hoseah 6, Malachi 4:2 and Isaiah 30:26 connect the sun with healing. There was often rain at the time of a sun miracle, like there was rain and hail stones on Joshua's long day, Joshua 10:11 and the Chinese dragon thunder and American Native Thunderbird. There is the possibility the sun rose for a short bright day on the day of the resurrection Sunday, that being the "great and notable day".

"In autumn hail fell in Heng-shan, the large ones measured five ts'un, the deep ones penetrating to two ch'ih. Mars moved in retrograde and guarded the North Star. The moon appeared in the vicinity of the North Star. Jupiter retrograded amid the constellation T'ien-t'ing. An elongated star appeared in the west." (February 154 BC).

Notes: "T'ien-huo probably refers to ignis fatuus. This is the only reference to this phenomemon in the Shih chi. On ignis fatuus in general, see William H. Nienhauser, Jr., "A UFO in Ancient China: A Comparative Study of the Pi-fang (Fire Crane) and its Western Analogues,"
Asian Culture Quarterly, XVII (Winter 1989): 69-79

The Grand Scribes Records, Volume II, p.197-199.

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."

Hoseah 6:1 "Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
6:2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
6:3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth."

The Aztecs may have witnessed the moon as bright as the sun, and the sun standing still in the sky:

"The creation of the Fifth World, or Sun, ..At first the Moon was as bright as the Sun: 'Exactly equal had they become in their appearance, as they shone'. But such equality could not be tolerated. The Moon was struck in the face, and its brilliance forever dimmed. The new born Sun, could not move, so the gods immolated themselves to give it movement, feeding it with their own flesh and blood. Then the Sun moved. Only when its glorious circuit was completed did the Moon begin to move: 'So they passed eachother and went each one on their way.'
Aztecs, Inga Clendinnen, p.198

After two days, after Friday and Saturday. In the third day. The letter is Bet. Thus from the third day. Thus the priests made sure the sepulchre Saturday because the third day began at sunset Saturday. Thus Jesus' resurrection was from the third day probably being but the third hour of Saturday night and beginning Sunday the third day. Saturday, when Jesus was in the tomb, may also have been a long day as was Joshua's long day that was like two days.

Hoseah 6:3 "Then shall we know,H3045 if we follow onH7291 to knowH3045 (H853) the LORD:H3068 his going forthH4161 is preparedH3559 as the morning;H7837 and he shall comeH935 unto us as the rain,H1653 as the latterH4456 and former rainH3138 unto the earth.H776"

"going forth" = rising of the sun. Going forth may mean a literal moving of the sun, suddenly rising in the east. "prepared" means 90°. Thus the sun must have set in the east the Sabbath Jesus was in the tomb. Then the sun must rise suddenly in the east the third hour of the night to the noon, perpendicular position.

2 Samuel 23:4 "And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain."

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.

The moon would be visible at the same time as the sun that Sunday morning. The moon would be directly above that Saturday night when the sun set in the east to rise on China. Then the sun would stop travelling east and brighten sevenfold and travel 180° west rising in the east to about the 9 AM position. The moon above would also reflect the light of the sun as if it was the sun at 8 PM that Saturday night and travel west to set in the west.

Jesus appeared in Galilee after his victory over the grave after the sun brilliantly and suddenly rose just as Gideon may have returned as far as Galilee after his victory and before the sun suddenly and brilliantly rose.

Matthew 28:10 "Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me."

The Sabbath ended at sunset. Then perhaps the sun rose soon after sunset:

Psalm 50:1 "The mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
50:3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.
50:4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people."

When God moved the sun, many records show that storms suddenly blew up. The Chinese record the Dragon was so bright thick clouds hid him. Psalm 18 is very graphic. Thus this verse of the sun rising in the east does not just describe a normal day, but also when God moved the sun. Thus God is mighty, and God has shined. When the sun suddenly rose in the west the sun must appear bright to give the same amount of light in a short day for coral to lay the same daily coral layer.

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."

That is was both sunset and dawn may mean the sun had just set in the east, and now was beginning to rise in the east. For Gideon, the sun may have rose in the west like it may have the Sabbath Jesus was in the tomb.

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."

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.
28:3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
28:4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men."

"began to dawn" in the Greek means to begin to grow light from a root meaning to illuminate. That sunrise may not have been like a normal sunrise. The sun may have been bright, so that even though the sunrise may have been sudden, there would have been also a bright twilight before the sunrise. Moreover, the end of the Sabbath was Saturday at sunset. Then the account in Pilate's letter to Tiberius may be correct in stating the sun came out at the third hour of the night. A short day may occur 12 hours early to fit earth's calendar. Also, Gideon's short day when the sun suddenly rose may occur after the sun set in the east. Then the sun would suddenly rise to the noon position from the midnight position.

The sudden sunrise at 9 PM at the end of the Sabbath would see the sun suddenly rise to the 3 PM position Sunday morning April 5, 33 AD. Then the time of Jesus' resurrection may have occurred at the beginning of the second watch, just like Gideon attacked at the beginning of the second watch. The sun would appear to rise through the zodiac through the year in the reverse orbit. If the zodiac was pictured as the sky, the sun would rise in spring in the east like the sun rises each day that year. In our normal zodiac the sun does not rise but falls further and further back.

Isaiah 53:11 "Out of the suffering of his soul he will see light, and find satisfaction."

Isaiah 62:1 "For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth."

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."

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."

The Saturday Sabbath ended at sunset Saturday, the first day of the week, Sunday, began after sunset on Saturday. Thus, they came unto the sepulchre at sunrise.

The dead never see light. So this verse in Isaiah 53:11 speaks of Jesus' resurrection.

The Greek word for up-rising is alternatively used for the Passover. The sun suddenly rising up would be very symbolic of up-rising = the resurrection. This month was called the beginning of months of the Exodus. This also was the beginning of the New Testament marked by the sun rising through the zodiac from this day. This was called Easter, the rising of the sun in the sky after the spring equinox. The vernal equinox began on the new moon March 21, 33 AD. Thus by the resurrection April 5, 33 AD, the sun was rising higher and the days lengthening.

John 20:17 "Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God."

Judges 8:13 "And Gideon the son of Joash returned from battle before the sun was up (ascended)."

Luke 24:13 "And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs."

Luke 24:17 And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?"

Luke 24:25 Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
24:26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?"

Luke 24:29 "But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spentG2827. And he went in to tarry with them."

The same word klee'noG2827 is used when Jesus was on the cross. Thus signifying not a natural falling down but a purposeful bowing. Thus the sun bowed down in the west on the resurrection Sunday.

Sunday, the day after the Sabbath of the Passover, was the first day of fifty which was also a Sabbath. Perhaps toward sunset, two hours before night, one could walk more than a Sabbath days journey. From Jerusalem to Olivet is about half a mile, a Sabbath days journey. From Jerusalem to Emmaus was about seven and a half miles.

John 1:38 "Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?
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 (two hours before night)."

John 19:30 "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowedG2827 his head, and gave up the ghost."

Perhaps the day was already far spent after travelling only twelve kilometers, seven miles, because the resurrection Sunday was a short brilliant day. That is, the sun travelled 180° west in only a few hours. So the sun may have completed the 180° by the sixth hour, noon. That Sunday was a Sabbath. Thus until sunset the two could not travel more than a mile. Then just after sunset, or two hours before night, the two from Emmaus went seven miles, and were able to arrive at Emmaus by dark. The evening was called "Erev" and meant between the two evenings, between sunset and night and began the next day which was not a Sabbath.

Perhaps the reason the two left Jerusalem for Emmaus was the disciples were disbanding after Jesus' death. Thus, when they recognized Jesus at the blessing of bread, they turned back to Jerusalem. From then on there was no turning back.

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."

If the sun travelled west 180° 9 PM Saturday April 4, 33 AD the sun would rise suddenly to the 9 AM position Sunday April 5, 33 AD, completing the 180°. However, if the sun set in the east, the sun may have been in the 3 AM position before changing course and heading west to suddenly rise in the east at 9 PM Saturday. Then the sun would pass to the 3 PM position. Then there would be a normal afternoon of 3 hours till sunset at 6 PM. In these few hours of the resurrection Sunday the two travelled to Emmaus with Jesus. Then the sun must return 186 days 10 hours later - half an orbit later, and perhaps the sun rose at 6 PM October 9, 33 AD to the 6 AM position and stood still now at the 6 AM position for 12 hours.

Thus the sun would travel 180° west at sunset and rise suddenly in the east. Then the sun would travel 180° with earth's rotation to stand still in the morning position for 12 hours.

The morrow may be a sun miracle at 6 AM October 10, 33 AD:

Acts 3:6 "Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
3:7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength."

Acts 4:3 "And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide.
4:4 Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.
4:5 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes,
4:6 And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem.
4:7 And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what power, or by what name, have ye done this?
4:8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,
4:9 If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;
4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole."

The following may be a long sunrise, the sun standing still as it rose in the east, April 7, 34 AD.:

Acts 5:19 "But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said,
5:20 Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life.
5:21 And when they heard that, they entered into the temple early in the morning, and taught."

Acts 5:29 "Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
5:30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.
5:31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him."

The following may be a sun miracle, the signs and wonders and perhaps part of the cause of the earthquake.

Acts 4:29 "And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,
4:30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.
4:31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness."

Perhaps there were only two intercalary months added from 34 AD to 46 AD. Then the Passover may have been January 10, 46 AD. It is not impossible for the calendar to fall back two months.

Then 12 years later in 46 AD Herod had killed James and captured Peter. Perhaps the night just before the Hebrew new moon may have been 12 hours longer. If there was only two intercalary months added since the Passover April 3, 33 AD, then the Passover would have been January 10, 46 AD. Then the Passover month would end in January 26, 45 AD. Then still in the Passover month on the 29th day, the last day of the lunar month, January 26, 46 AD ended the Passover month of Easter. Thus Herod expected to bring Peter out the day after Easter January 26, 46 AD. Perhaps that night the sun moved 180° east and stood still on the other side of the earth for 12 hours and earth flowed into a reverse orbit. Then Peter would have had 12 extra hours that night for the angel to help him escape.

Acts 12:1 "Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.
12:2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.
12:3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)
12:4 And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.
12:5 Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.
12:6 And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.
12:7 And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.
12:8 And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.
12:9 And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.
12:10 When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.
12:11 And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the LORD hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.
12:12 And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered together praying.
12:13 And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a damsel came to hearken, named Rhoda.
12:14 And when she knew Peter's voice, she opened not the gate for gladness, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the gate.
12:15 And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel.
12:16 But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished.
12:17 But he, beckoning unto them with the hand to hold their peace, declared unto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he said, Go shew these things unto James, and to the brethren. And he departed, and went into another place.
12:18 Now as soon as it was day, there was no small stir among the soldiers, what was become of Peter."

Then August 1, 46 AD at noon, 186 days 10 hours later, the sun should go down. The same time of day, the same date one year after a 40% solar eclipse at Rome August 1, 45 AD.

"As there was going to be an eclipse on his birthday, through fear of a disturbance, as there had been other prodigies, he put forth a public notice, not only that the obscuration would take place, and about the time and magnitude of it, but also the causes that produce such an event."

Refers to solar eclipse of AD 45, on the birthday of the Roman Emperor, Claudius.

From: Dion Cassius.

The birthday of Claudius Caesar was August 1. There was a 40% solar eclipse in Rome August 1, 45 AD. However, this statement may refer to August 1, 46 AD. If Peter was saved the day after the month of Easter/passover, January 26, 46 AD, the sun must return August 1, 46 AD. The eclipse of August 1, 45 AD probably was not even noticed being only about 40% in Rome. A solar eclipse of 40%, such as I observed July 10, 6PM, 2002, produces no noticeable shading or darkening of the sky. The emperor may have known the sun must return six months after the long night of January 26, 46 AD. The people may have been aware of sun miracles just 12 years previous, then again that January 26. the Passover sun miracle of February 9 and 12, 32 AD would have been followed by the sun miracle of August 16, 32 AD.

Thus Caesar made the edict "through fear of a disturbance, as there had been other prodigies". Then the sun miracle of August 1, 46 AD would have been explained to the people by this decree in fear of a disturbance. Then there would be no further Roman record of this sun miracle. There was recorded an island Hiera appeared during an eclipse of the moon in winter dated to the lunar eclipse December 31, 46 AD. "Aurelius Victor notes moreover that the island emerged at night during an eclipse of the moon". The sun must return January 26, 47 AD on the full moon. Perhaps what was noted was a sun miracle not a lunar eclipse. Perhaps the island Hiera formed from pressure triggered by the gravity pull of the sun being pulled around the earth.

An island forming is like spiritual life forming.

Claudius was afraid of the result of sun miracles in 46 AD there being rebellion in the Roman Empire. He ordered a census in 46 AD and celebrated the 800th Roman year at the secular games that June 4. There was rebellion by Caratacus in Britain in 46 AD and again by Queen Boudicca in 61 AD - the years of sun miracles.

There are records of the world being turned upside down.

They probably were looking at the Big Dipper. The Big Dipper normally points straight down at midnight in August/September 2,000 years ago then straight up at midnight in winter. Then a sun miracle in winter would mean the Big Dipper would point straight down to Arcturus at night in winter. Thus the world would seem upside down.

The sign of Castor and Pollux may be the sign of the zodiac the sun was in in January. The sun moving from Capricornus to Gemini - Castor and Pollux - in January could be taken as a sign. Perhaps that was the sign that it was spring and safe to sail. A sign from God. The sun normally is in Castor and Pollux - Gemini, in July/August. Thus a sun miracle six months later and the sun would be in Castor and Pollux in January. Paul sailed from Malta to Rome either in February of 61 AD or February of 62 AD. February 5, 61 AD may have been about when Paul sailed from Malta to Rome. There was a major earthquake in Pompeii on the Nones of February, February 5, 62 AD.

There was a major tsunami then and many ships that were not protected by harbours were destroyed in the Sicily vicinity. If this was just before Paul sailed for Rome from Malta it would be a wonder he found a ship. Perhaps the sign of Castor and Pollux in January/February was a sun miracle February 5, 61 AD. Then the earthquake and tsunami that was on February 5, 62 AD was when the sun returned one year later. The Nones of February was from the fifth to the 13th of the month when this earthquake was recorded, the afternoon of February 5, 62 AD. There would be a short day/night or long day/night for the sun to appear in Gemini = Castor and Pollux February 5, 61 AD and again February 5, 62 AD and two sun miracles July 10, 61 AD.

For the sun to be in the sign of Castor and Pollux in January/February can only mean there was a sun miracle then and would be the sign it was fair sailing and this being February would be now spring. February 8 was the day ships sailed in the beginning of Spring. So if Paul sailed February 8, 62 AD, it would be a few days after the tsunami of February 5, 62 AD. The next port was in Syracuse Sicily then Rhegium and Puteoli which were hard hit by the tsunami. Therefore, Paul must have sailed from Malta a few days before the tsunami or a year before the tsunami. The word for sign means to mark at. Thus the sun at Castor and Pollux marked the time, January/February that it was safe to sail. Safe sailing was from about February 8 and the sun could only be in Castor and Pollux in January/February after moving 180° from Capricornus.

Thus the sun just moving from Capricornus to Castor and Pollux would be a sign it was the beginning of February and winter was past and was now safe to sail.

Acts 28:11 "And after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered in the isle, whose sign was Castor and Pollux."

Thus earth would be in a reverse orbit of the sun. Paul was acquitted when he arrived in Rome. Then he sailed with Timothy to Crete. The sun must return six months later in July and move again. Thus earth would flow out of a reverse orbit of the sun July 10 and then the sun move again and earth flow into a reverse orbit of the sun July 11 till the afternoon of February 5, 62 AD when the sun must move again and earth finally flow out of the reverse orbit and there be no missing time.

Titus 1:5 "For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:"

Titus 3:4 "But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,"

Appeared means to shine upon. Perhaps there was a sun miracle when Paul left Timothy in Crete after he was freed in Rome. Perhaps the sun returned 186 days later, about July 10, 61 AD, and suddenly and brilliantly rose in the sky as it did in the resurrection morning. Then returned on the Nones of the last month of the year in January and the earthquake and tsunami. The tsunami probably did not occur just when Paul sailed. So Paul may have sailed about February 5, 61 AD. Then "But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared" may suggest a beneficial sun miracle six months after the destruction of the first sun miracle February 5, 62 AD. The following model shows how these sun miracles cover two years.

The first sun miracle may have been August 9, 60 AD, then February 5, 61 AD, then February 6, 62 AD, then August 10, 62 AD:

Cassius Dio Roman History, Epitome of Book LXIV:

8 "While he was behaving in this way, evil omens occurred. A comet was seen, and the moon, contrary to precedent, appeared to suffer two eclipses, being obscured on the fourth and on the seventh day. Also people saw two suns at once, one in the west weak and pale, and one in the east brilliant and powerful."

This may describe sun miracles in 65 AD when Jerusalem was taken by the Romans. Thus perhaps the comet Halley that 65 AD.

Halley's comet has a 76 year cycle. However, because its orbit has been affected by Venus, the orbit was not always 76 years but in the 70's of years. The orbit was stable for 300 year periods. Thus there may be widely different records of comet Halley's appearance than expected further in the past.

Then also a sun miracle on the fourth day of the lunar month and again on the seventh day of the lunar month that appeared as lunar eclipses. A lunar eclipse cannot occur on the fourth or seventh of a lunar month. Only on the 15th of the lunar month can a lunar eclipse occur. Neither can a solar eclipse occur on the fourth or seventh day of the lunar month. Only on the first or last day of the lunar month can a solar eclipse occur. Such an example of a record of a solar eclipse that was not a solar eclipse is September 7, 591 BC.

This was on day 40 of cycle 60 = September 7, 591 BC. No solar eclipses match a day 40 of cycle 60 in any nearby year. Both on the seventh day of the lunar month and a Sabbath was recorded a solar eclipse on day 40 of cycle 60 in China. Then the sun would stand still weakly in the west for 12 hours, the sun travelling 180° east with earth's rotation. Thus that day would appear a normal 12 hour day in the daily coral line.

Then the sun would travel 180° west in about an hour, and be brilliant to leave the same daily coral layer, and appear brilliantly in the east.

Thus in an hour the coral would lay the same line as if it was a normal 12 hours. Thus the sun's sudden 180° movement would make it disappear in the west and soon brilliantly appear in the east almost as if the sun both appeared in the west and the east at the same time..

Here you see two years of reverse orbit. The wisemen reported to have seen the star of the King of the Jews two years earlier. Perhaps there were two years of reverse orbit to August/September 5 BC when the wisemen saw Arcturus above at midnight and a comet that stood above the home of Joseph and Mary where Jesus was.





The coming destruction came on the seventh day of the fourth month in 70 AD just as it had in 591 BC. Then perhaps a sun miracle in 70 AD and in 66 AD, - a sign of total destruction, as it had in 591 BC. The temple was set fire in darkness, perhaps the darkness of a sudden sunset. There was blood and fire. The 9 day moon would appear in the darkness blood red. Not the slight tinge of red in a lunar eclipse. A real blood red reflection of a red sun on the other side of the earth.

August 4, 70 AD is day 9 of the lunar month Av. One year earlier there is recorded "the moon became blood-red and black and received the other red colours" and there was a comet sighting at the same time as the eclipse. According to Dio Cassius this was on the 4th or 7th of the month. One year earlier is August 4, 69 AD near the new moon. Perhaps more than a sliver of the moon was visible as the sun and moon moved 180° and the comet was rather God's angel the phoenix moving the sun. Thus the sun could have moved August 4, 69 BC and earth flowed into a reverse orbit of the sun. Perhaps half an orbit later in February the sun returned, then moved again to the other side of earth. Thus Titus was impelled to say "I have lost a day" in his campaign to conquer Jerusalem for the Romans.

Also, the accumulated missing time for half a reverse orbit is 24 hours. Then half an orbit later, January 29, 70 AD: "Even darkness did not terminate the struggle." Tacitus - may have signified a long night and sudden sunrise. Then the sun moved back August 4, 70 AD one year later and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun. August 4, 70 AD was Saturday, a Sabbath. Probably Jerusalem fell on a Sabbath. Then the sun would fall from the sky and it be dark at noon and the moon would be ashamed because it would be the red colour of blushing. What was recorded as a solar eclipse in China on lunar day 40, Saturday September 7, 591 BC. Thus lunar day 40 is really lunar day 10 the following day. The Chinese count from the day the moon passes the sun.

The Hebrews counted from the first appearing of the moon. Thus day 10 in China is day 9 in Israel.

Then in this darkness a torch was tossed into the temple, and the temple and Jerusalem were destroyed - August 4, 70 AD.

How King Wan's experience of a long sunset felt like a dream and possibly was the sun moving back six months after Joshua's long day and may have been on Joshua's battle of Merom as seen from China.

Earth appears to have gone into a reverse orbit on Joshua's battle of Jericho. Six months later on Joshua's long day, the Hebrew states the sun stood still from the half of heaven for Joshua. Then one year after the battle of Jericho the sun must return on the battle of Merom. Perhaps Israel saw stars from the other half of heaven that night. The Chinese would see a long sunset while the sun stood still at noon in Israel. The Chinese from the time of Joshua state there was a long sunset:





"King Wan was like the sun or the moon. He lightened with his shining the four quarters, -- the western regions."

- That is, there was a sun miracle when the sun was setting. The sun may have moved 10° more than 180° to make up for the 40 minutes more missing time that had to be countered by 40 minutes more elapsed time. Then king Wan would see the sun set and the stars started to come out 6:00 February 15, 1240 BC showing the planets in Scorpius/Fang. Then the sun stood still at noon on Israel for 12 hours moving 180° with earth's rotation. There is a 6 hour difference from Israel to China. Then sun moved a further 10°, that is 190° in all, and retreated from the 6 PM position on China to the 5:20 position. The sun would just barely peak above the western horizon. The six day moon was straight above. Thus king Wan was clothed in the sun and the moon.

Thus this accounts for the 10° in the missing day story. The sun retreated 10° from the 6 PM position to the 5:20 PM position. The noon sun in Israel would be a setting sun in China. This must be the year he became king when he fought emperor Wending in 1240 BC. King Wan's dream appears to be from when he was king in 1240 BC.

That year, 1241 BC, the Chinese would see the 3 PM sun brighten and suddenly travel west, the Israelites would see the sun suddenly, and brilliantly, rise in the east, early in the morning on the seventh day when Joshua and the people circled Jericho seven times, and the walls fell flat. February 17, 1241 BC. Then again the Chinese would see the sun appear on the western horizon for 24 hours, Joshua's long day, August 24, 1241 BC. And then see the sun rise from the west to the 3 PM position again, and again brilliantly and suddenly travel west. Lastly, the Chinese would see the sun set, and stand still in the west for 12 hours, February 15, 1240 BC. Thus, all these sun miracles that year may cause it to be said "king Wan lightened the western regions".

Sun miracles were a sign to the Chinese for a revolution. Thus king Wan needed the people to be stirred up to overturn the Shang dynasty. Only February 15, 1240 BC fits all planetary and lunar alignments. The planetary alignment in Fang/Libra may just be where the planets were put during the sun miracle. The Chinese looked for a sun miracle for a sign for a new emperor. There were sun miracles 40 years earlier in Exodus. Joshua was not the only one who was victorious, at Merom, February 15, 1240 BC. For king Wan this was a sign of a new age, a new epoch, a new dynasty. The date of 1122 BC for King Wan's son Wu to become emperor of China was derived by matching the appearing of Jupiter with the stars.

This is best November 13, 1194 BC. King Wan had the bright appointment of Heaven nine years from 1195 BC to 1186 BC. 1192 BC was 49 years from year one Joshua's conquest in 1241 BC, a 49th year jubile. The date of the Chow or Zhou dynasty is 1174 BC. Lunar dates match the calendar every 19 years. The Chinese cycle of 60 years works with the cycle of 60 days. To move king Wan's first year as king back from 1186 BC to 1240 BC, you have to move the Chow dynasty and Wu back 52 years to 1174 BC from 1122 BC. Then you must move King K'ang back 2 X 60 years from 1006 BC to 1126 BC. Then only 4 years are missing from the Chow dynasty and Wu in 1174 BC to King K'ang in 1126 BC. 7 years for Wu, 37 years for Ching, leaves only these 4 years.

If King K'ang's 24th year was a sun miracle, then from Wu 1174 BC to Ching 1168 BC to K'ang 1131 BC to K'ang's 24th year 1107 BC. Then a sun miracle in 1107 BC = 1100 years before Jesus' birth year in 7 BC.

Likewise, 3 years more for Wending from his twelfth year in 1240 BC, 9 for Wu Yi and 52 for Xin is exactly what the Bamboo Books record in the Chinese Classics to 1174 BC. February 15, 1240 BC may mark the sun returning one year after Joshua's battle for Jericho at Joshua's battle at Merom and was King Wending's 12th year when phoenixes appeared on mount K'e and king Wan defeated him, king Wan's first year as king and the same day as his 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 no 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.

Chinese new year feast was from the first day to the fifteenth day. Thus, this was during the feast of new year. This Chinese record was of the sixth day moon and the sun. Logically the sun should be setting and the moon brightening in the evening sky above. And that the five planets had a conjunction in Libra/Scorpius in January/February when the sun would be in Aquarius/Pisces - Scorpius would only appear in the east at 10 PM! The 6 day moon must set before Scorpius rises, they cannot be seen together. Scorpius/Fang/Libra must appear in the west at sunset to fit the picture. Therefore there must be a long sunset. The sun was 90° from Fang/Scorpius in January/February 1240 BC. Indeed, the sun was 90° away from Fang in the first month of Chinese spring for thousands of years!

The sun moved 180° from where it had been that night from Virgo to Aquarius. The sun normally was in Aquarius in late January. The six day moon in January/February would normally be in Taurus = sun in Aquarius. Taurus is 180° away from Fang/Scorpius. Thus the sun and planets moved 180°.

How could Mercury, which is very close to the sun, be 180° away from the sun in Scorpius/Fang to form a 5 planet conjunction? 5 planet conjunctions were associated with sun miracles. Perhaps this was a notable sun miracle to the Chinese. That all the planets appeared in the western quadrant at sunset stood still in the western sky, while they moved 180° with earth's rotation and with the sun, and 12 hours later they appeared about Fang/Libra when the stars finally came out. The center of the 70° conjunction was Fang or Libra. Moreover, this may be February 15, 1240 BC and the conjunction be part of a sun miracle where the planets were left behind in Scorpius when the sun moved 180° east.

"King Wan dreamt he was clothed in the sun and moon...on the sixth day of the first month"

- A long sunset and the moon stayed directly overhead. Spring began on the new moon. The sixth day of spring the moon is 90° east of the sun. Thus the moon would be on the eastern horizon above Ajalon when the sun was in the noon position as Joshua would see them if Joshua's long day was August 24, 1241 BC. February 15, 1240 BC, when the sun moved back, was a similar 6 day moon sun miracle and perhaps was King Wan's Dream.

Joshua commanded the moon to stand still in the valley of Ajalon. The valley of Ajalon would seem to be to the west. However, the ravine of the going down of Bethoron is east west. Thus the sun may have been above Gibeon on Joshua's right and the sixth day moon in the east in the upper Ajalon valley on Joshua's left hand. Ajalon may mean deer or ram field or pillars. Perhaps the moon held in the pillars of the valley of upper Ajalon by Gibeon. Givat Zeev is built on this location and you can see the first quarter moon about where Joshua saw the moon that day. I passed through Old Gibeon, then headed down and southwest from Givat Zeev down the going down of Bethoron.

Joshua's long day and victory can be compared to Jesus' victory over the grave and life's western slope leading to God and Heaven and endless day.

You can see the cliffs like pillars with the moon in between. The setting 6 day moon in the east in Israel would be midsky in the west in China.

Perhaps there was a sun miracle on Jesus' birth in the seventh month, the Jewish new year, September 12, 7 BC. The sun miracle of Joshua's long day would only be a few weeks earlier perhaps August 24, 1241 BC.

The key may be an unusual recorded lunar eclipse, September 15, 5 BC. Josephus did not state this was a lunar eclipse. He stated the moon was blood red in response to Herod killing the High Priest. The moon may appear much more red, and more notable, if the sun was also made red so as to leave the same daily coral layer as the sun was moved with earth's rotation to stand still over the Americas, and the moon stood still in the Israel sky.

Job 3:6 "As for that night, let darkness seize upon it; let it not be joined unto the days of the year, let it not come into the number of the months."

Isaiah 13:8 "And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.
13:9 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
13:10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
13:11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
13:12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
13:13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger."

The night of Jesus' crucifixion was a dark lunar eclipse. The lunar eclipse was partial so it would not cause a blood red moon. The lunar eclipse may have lasted 60 hours. If the sun and moon stood still as seen from earth, the sun should be dimmed purple and the moon look blood red as it stood still. Thus the night was not joined by the day. Thus the regular time of the night and day had long elapsed before there was morning. Also, earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun that Friday night April 3, 33 AD. Then Saturday night about 9 PM earth flowed into a reverse orbit of the sun. So this day Saturday April 4, 33 AD is not really joined with the rest of the reverse orbit year. Moreover, when the earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun, the earth went backwards one day in a regular orbit.

Thus, as far as the movement of the earth in orbit around the sun there is no trace of that Saturday or Friday. Even that Saturday the sun appears to have risen in the west and set in the east.

Here you can see the 17th day of the lunar month was Saturday, September 12, 7 BC. Thus Jesus may have been circumcised the eighth day, Saturday, September 20, 7 BC.





From the tomb of Horemheb: "Harakhte, only god, king of the gods; he rises in the west, he sends his beauty.."

Horemheb is said to have reigned from about 1327 BC BC. His predecessor Ay reigned from 1331 BC. However, we must add 76 years because pharaoh Merneptah died in 1281 BC not 1205 BC. Thus, King Tut would have died in 1407 BC, then Ay four years, then Horemheb. Often God moved the sun in even 100's to 7 BC. Thus there may have been a sun miracle in 1407 BC, 1400 years before Christ in 7 BC, whereupon it may have been taken as an omen and King Tut may have been assassinated. Then this record of the sun rising in the west may have occurred just a few years before Horemheb became pharaoh.

In a wall painting Horemheb offers wine to Osirus, in case the sun does not shine and the moon does not rise and Horemheb not pass to the netherworld. This was the picture years later when there was three days of darkness in Egypt just before the passover.

In the same year of 60, 31 of cycle 60, Seaou-sin became emperor in 1407 BC. 120 years further back from 1286 BC. Thus a sun miracle in 1407 BC may have been the omen to make Seaou-sin emperor. Wuding appears as the Chinese emperor in 1397 BC, 29 years later in 1368 BC:
"In his 29th year, at the supplementary sacrifice in the Grand ancestral temple, a pheasant made its appearance."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.136.

The pheasant was connected to the phoenix. Thus this could be a record of a sun miracle in 1368 BC, 1400 years before Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD.

Wuding moved the capital to Anyang when he became emperor about 1397 BC. Often the capital was moved because of an omen. Thus a sun miracle in 1407 BC could have been the omen for Wuding to move the capital.

This year during Wuding's 60 year reign, on day 31 of cycle 60, there was an oracle bone record of a lunar eclipse, June 29, 1368 BC visible from China. Sunday, March 1, 1268 BC was also day 31 of cycle 60 and the 14th day of the lunar month, the day of passover.

Isaiah 60:1 "Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee."

Like wise there appears to be darkness when Jerusalem is burned, August 4, 70 AD on the seventh of Av, and when Jerusalem is taken into captivity Saturday, September 7, 591 BC on the seventh of Av.

Now for the record of the lunar eclipse, September 15, 5 BC: Perhaps there was a sudden sunrise after the angels appeared to the shepherds on Jesus' birth. Job uttered these words in Job 3:6 of the day of his birth for the suffering he went through. How much more Jesus suffered. There is record of a lunar eclipse the night after the fast when the High Priest Matthias asked his kinsman to stand in for him at the temple because of an unholy dream. Josephus records the moon was blood red. This does not mean a typical lunar eclipse. "The moon that night was red from the blood of the murdered rabbins." This rather indicates a sun miracle when the moon standing still in the sky, with the sun, should appear blood red. The date of the lunar eclipse, September 15, 5 BC, must be the date of Josephus's blood red moon a few days after Yom Kippur.

Luke 2:7 "And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
2:8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night."

Lambing season, January, was 144 days after breeding season, August/September. There were many sun miracles in January recorded in China. Many people think the shepherds were watching over the sheep in lambing season, thus Jesus' birth be in January.

However, there are reasons to think the shepherds were watching over the sheep in September.

See The Season of Jesus' Birth

There is often a foot of snow in December in Israel and Jordan. See Snow in Israel. Pipes freeze and burst. Thus, December 25 cannot be when Jesus was born.

This was the feast of tabernacles when everyone was supposed to spend the night outside. Thus the shepherds and sheep outside, and there was no room in the inn because everyone was supposed to be outside the eight days of the feast of booths.

For this Herod had Matthias' wife's brother made High Priest. This suggests the lunar eclipse was a night a few days after the day of Atonement - the only time the High Priest went into the Holiest of Holies. The day of Atonement day 9 of the lunar month. The feast of tabernacles day 15 and full moon = time of a lunar eclipse. Herod was so disgusted he had this High Priest executed. Another Matthias had the Roman gold eagle removed from the temple. He too was executed.

Josephus does not state there was a lunar eclipse. He stated the moon was blood red in response to Herod killing the High Priests. Then if the moon was really red this must be a sun miracle at the time of the lunar eclipse. There is the possibility Herod had killed the boys of Bethlehem two years old and under about this time. Thus the blood moon may have appeared for them also.

Matthew 2:16 "Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men."

There is the possibility this eclipse was at the same time a sun miracle blood moon. A sun miracle a red sun reflected in a blood moon like the one the night of Jesus' crucifixion. That night the moon was recorded as blood red. Only the moon did not shine all the night because of the lunar eclipse at moon rise, April 3, 33 AD. The wise men from the east who came to worship the Christ may have come to Jerusalem just prior to the blood red moon. Then Jesus' birth two year earlier on the same date should have been noted. Perhaps the execution of a High Priest and another prominent priest was the reason the day of the birth of Christ was not regarded. Two years earlier from this date is September 12, 7 BC, a few days after the blowing of trumpets for the feast of tabernacles, and the new year.

Also, because this was the feast of booths, animals were also to be outside. Thus the shepherds watching their sheep. Thus perhaps the shepherds watching their sheep found Jesus in the manger on during the feast of booths September 12, 7 BC. Thus there was no room at the inn because everyone was supposed to be sleeping in booths during the feast of booths.

The word for inn is simply a spare room in a house. During the feast of booths from the 15th day of the seventh month to the 22nd day everyone, including animals, were to sleep outside in booths. Thus Jesus' birth in the 17th day of the seventh month would be during this feast of booths.

Sheep are bred in the pasture in August and September. There may have been a sudden sunrise on this night = Arcturus normally disappearing in the west at sunset in September would now rise in the east at sunset and be directly overhead at midnight = the star the wise men saw two years before they came to worship him.

In September the shepherds watch their sheep because this is the breeding season.

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

Jesus, if born in September 7 BC would be turning 35 years old at the time of Luke 3:23, September 14, 29 AD. Thus Jesus would have begun to be about 30 years of age as he began to be 35 years of age.

The Greek reads Jesus "began to be as if in the decade of thirty years." Then Jesus would have been turning 35 when he stood up to quote Isaiah 61, on Rosh Hashanah, or Yom Kippur. Jesus would have been 34 when he was baptized by John before his birthday in August/September when he would turn 35. Luke states Jesus was in his 30th decade, not his 30th year. Thus Jesus was 35 when he went into the ministry and lived till the crucifixion three and a half years later. Jesus would turn 35 in September 14, 29 AD beginning the jubile year 50 Friday September 9, 29 AD.

The civil new year began with the day of Atonement in August/September. Historically this marked the conquest of Joshua about the same seventh month. Joshua's long day must have been the sixth day of the eighth month. Thus Yom Kippur is Israel's national holiday. Thus the spiritual new year is in March/April and the civil/government new year in August/September. Jesus' name is actually Joshua. The conquest of Joshua August 24, 1241 BC was like the day of Rosh Hashanah after Jesus returned from fasting and victory over the devil, and spoke from Isaiah 61 in Luke 4. August 28, 29 AD, the 17th day of the seventh month when Jesus began his ministry on his 35th birthday, may have symbolized the 17th day of the seventh month when Jesus was born.

There was a sun miracle recorded in China in 29 AD, perhaps in August/September for the Big Dipper to point up at midnight and Arcturus overhead, instead of down, as it must have at Jesus' birth. Thus this would be the same sign to Israel the Messiah was now a man as it was to the wise men when Jesus was born.

Exodus 40:1 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
40:2 On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
40:3 And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the vail."

See the 10th day of the seventh month was Sunday, September 8, 1280 BC. Sunday, the first day of the week and the first day of the month. The Hebrew new year was counted from the seventh month about September.





Or the tabernacle was set up in the seventh month beginning the new year the new moon the new week on Sunday, September 9, 1281 BC.

Sunday September 1, would be the first appearing of the moon in the seventh month. Likewise, Sunday September 29 would be the first appearing of the moon. Thus the first day of the week, the first day of the first month of the Hebrew civil calendar.





However, the new year began the 10th day of the seventh month, the day of atonement when only the High Priest could go into the sanctuary. This should be September 20, 1281 BC. Then if the sun moved back on this date half an orbit later, that may be from the three days of darkness, the ninth plague of Egypt. Three days before the Passover may have been the new moon March 15, 1281 BC. Then 187 days later was Yom Kippur September 20, 1281 BC.

Nehemiah 8:2 "And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month."

Then perhaps the wise men came from the east possibly in the seventh month, September of 5 BC. Then Arcturus would pass directly above Bethlehem at midnight. In September 2,000 years ago normally Arcturus is pointing straight down at midnight. However, with earth now in a reverse orbit, Arcturus would be rising in the east at sunset and pass directly overhead in September. Perhaps Herod slew the children Bethlehem two and under in 5 BC when it had already been two years since the sun miracle Saturday, September 12, 7 BC or Sunday, September 13, 7 BC. John the Baptist may have been conceived about June, 8 BC, and born the following passover. the Passover possiblly March 26, 8 BC, then count 8 weeks to Saturday May 17, 8 BC, and allow a few weeks to return home.

The course of Abijah was the 8th week from the Passover, thus John the Baptist may have been conceived in June of 8 BC and be born in March 7 BC.

This first day of the first month may be Sunday, April 7, 1280 BC. Perhaps the Israelites added their 13th month Adar. Then the moon's first visibility may have been Saturday night the beginning of the first day. Thus the temple was raised on the first day of the week and the first day of the month. The context suggests this day is in spring not September. The year before, the fist day of the first month, the new moon, may have been the ninth plague, the three days of darkness.

In Japan they recorded 9 suns together February 10, 9 BC. Perhaps the sun moved February 10, 9 BC, then moved back on the new moon February 10, 8 BC. Then a sun miracle may have occurred when the sun returned, and when John the Baptist was born.

"The Kumanso people were prospering, until nine Suns were seen in the sky, followed by great Ch'aous." February 10, 9 BC.
Wonders in the Sky

Mary may have conceived Jesus of the Holy Ghost before January 1, 7 BC.

"11th month (December 8 BC) Liu Ao decreed to appoint Wang Mang to the Commander-in-chief; he was 38 years of age this year."
Wars with the Xiongnu, p.440.

A sun miracle may have marked Jesus' birth in December of 8 BC whereupon Wang Mang was appointed.

Zacharias may have spoken of a sun miracle the day John the Baptist was born and his tongue loosed and prophesied of a sun miracle when Jesus would be born 6 months later, September 12, 7 BC. The Wisemen must have understood the sun miracle that signified Jesus' birth when the star, probably Arcturus, first appeared overhead at midnight in September. Perhaps the first sun miracle was September 12, 7 BC at Jesus' birth. Herod died March 30, 4 BC, almost two and a half years after Jesus' birth, September 12, 7 BC. Thus the sun may have moved back March 14, 4 BC on the lunar eclipse and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun at that time. Then the first sun miracle may possibly have been three years earlier at the birth of John the Baptist on the Passover, March 14, 7 BC.

Then the sun moved back and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun. The night, two years after Jesus was born, may be at the time of the lunar eclipse on which Herod killed the High Priest Matthias just a day after the day of Atonement. Thus the lunar eclipse September 15, 5 BC, was recorded because it lasted so long, and the moon turned blood red reflecting a dimmed red sun standing still on the other side of the earth, likened to the executions just a day previous, and the events associated with it. If this was the date of Jesus' birth two years earlier September 12, 7 BC, what happened to the High Priest two years later may be reason the day was not regarded. Herod may have been mad at that time because the wise men had gone back another way. Thus he slew the high priest and the children of Bethlehem about the same time.

Sun miracles must be associated with Jesus' birth and the appearing of Arcturus above at midnight Sunday September 12, 7 BC.

"Emperor Cheng of Han, 1st year of the Yuanyan period, 7th month, day xinwei [8] (June 15, 12 BC or July 21, 5 BC). There was a fuzzy star in DONGING [LM] which then trod through WUZHUHOU. It [re-] appeared to the north of HESHU and skirted XUANYUAN and TAI WEI. Afterward it traveled more than 6 du daily, appearing at dawn in the east. On the evening of the 13th day from July 21, (August 3, 5 BC on the new moon - thus the comet was visible at sunset) it appeared in the west.

Thus if this star guided the wisemen, it could pass Arcturus at midnight when Arcturus passed directly over Bethlehem, and stand still above Bethlehem moving west to east with earth's rotation untill the wisemen entered the house of Joseph and Mary. It trespassed against CIFEI, CHANGQUI, DOU (DUO is The Big Dipper and Arcturus), Saturn (perhaps 180° from where it normally would be in Taurus) may have been in Libra beside Arcturus in the east at sunset with the sun in Pisces in August 31, 5 BC.

Often records were not written down in China when they occurred, but years later after the death of the King. This King died in 7 BC. The Chinese changed emperors when there was a sun miracle. Thus, the star of the wisemen that appeared two years before they came to worship Jesus in September 5 BC, could be Arcturus. If the sun was moved to the other side of the earth in September, Arcturus would appear directly above at midnight.

Then with the King of China dead, astronomical records could be written down.

Emperor Cheng died suddenly in 7 BC. There may have been a sun miracle, Omen, and perhaps Cheng was assassinated, when Jesus was born.

Thus, when the record would be written down of the appearance of the comet Halley in 12 BC seven years later in 5 BC, the movement of the star of the east of the wisemen in 5 BC may have been recorded instead. Thus, the record of comet Halley in 12 BC, may have been recorded in 5 BC. Then the movements of the star that guided the wisemen may have been recorded in 5 BC instead of comet Halley in 12 BC.

The comet may rise in the west at sunset July 21, 5 BC. By September 5 BC, Arcturus would rise in the east at sunset to pass directly over Bethlehem at midnight. Then in September the comet travelled west to east. Thus the night the wisemen came to Bethlehem, the comet may join Arcturus above Bethlehem at midnight. Then as the wisemen approached Bethlehem and Arcturus passed over to the west, the comet passing west east may stand still above Bethlehem with earth's rotation till the wisemen entered the house of Joseph and Mary.

"It pointed its rays again penetrated to the middle of ZIGONG, with DAHUO right behind. It reached TIANHE (The MILKY WAY), sweeping across the area of FEI and HUO. It departed southward, crossing and trespassing against DAJIAO and SHETI. When it reached TIANSHI it proceeded slowly at a measured pace. Its rays entered TIANSHI. After a further 10 days it departed westward.
On the 56th day (September 15, 5 BC when the sun must return at the lunar eclipse = blood red moon reflecting a red sun as it moved with earth's rotation the night Herod executed the High Priests) it passed from view together with CANGLONG."
East Asian Archaeoastronomy, [Han shu. Wuxing zhi] ch. 27

Here you see the English names to the constellations comet Halley passed through: "In the first year of Yuan Yen, in the Autumn the seventh month, on the day Sing Wei (day 8 of cycle 60), the comet swept in Gemini, went through Pollox and Castor and passed over Leo and Virgo. It was then behind the sun six degrees and appeared in the east earlier in the morning. After 13 days on the new moon the comet became an evening star shining in the west, whence it swept over Arcturus, moved slowly to Serpens and reached Ophiuchus. After 56 days it disappeared in Scorpio."

The path of the comet can also work with the sun on the other side of earth and earth in a reverse orbit. The comet may have been in the west in Gemini about August 3 BC. The sun should have appeared to move from Gemini in earth's reverse orbit August 3 towards Pisces. Then the comet would move west east, meaning by September 1, the comet would rise in the east with Arcturus. Then the night the wise men saw the star in the east, perhaps Arcturus, they may have seen the comet and Arcturus overhead. Then Arcturus would pass overhead as earth rotates. But the comet could stand still above the houes of Joseph and Mary and Jesus. The comet was moving toward Scorpio by September 15, 5 BC. Thus both the comet and Arcturus may have guided the wise men to Jesus. Thus the record the star stood above the home of Joseph and Mary.

Thus the record the comet swept over Arcturus to Scorpio. The sun would then be in Pisces in the beginning of September. Then on day 56 from the comet's first appearing June 22, 5 BC to September 15, 5 BC; the sun may have moved back to Virgo, 180° from Pisces, at the same time as the lunar eclipse was to occur. Thus there could be a 12 hour longer night, and perhaps a long lunar eclipse. Thus the comet in the way of the sun as it moved from Pisces to Virgo would have been removed on day 56, September 15, 5 BC.

Then the sun would move 180° back to Virgo from Pisces September 15, 5 BC and the comet disappear.

Numbers 24:17 "I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth."

The Star must be the star the wisemen saw. The star left Jacob may be a comet. A Scepter has risen may refer to the star Arcturus, to rise to be directly above Bethlehem at midnight, both when he was born, and two years later when the wisemen followed the star to Jesus. Jesus would still be in the house of Joseph and Mary in Bethlehem two years later. The sun would have moved to the other side of earth on Jesus' birth September 12, 7 BC = Arcturus above at midnight, and the sun would return September 15, 7 BC = the blood moon, and not just a lunar eclipse, described by Josephus.

Acts 28:11 "And after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered in the isle, whose sign was Castor and Pollux."

The "comet" appeared in Gemini with Castor and Pollux. If this record is for 5 BC instead of 12 BC; this "comet" may have been the star of the Messiah the wise men saw in the east. The comet record may be for 12 BC, but its possible it is for 5 BC.

This comet record may be the star of the wise men. They may have seen Arcturus rise in the east in September of 5 BC. Then as they reached Bethlehem, the wise men may have seen the comet move from the west to the east and passover Arcturus at midnight. Then Arcturus pass westward with the stars and the comet stand still over the house of Joseph and Mary. Whereupon the wise men entered the house and worshiped Jesus. Day 13 from July 21, 5 BC should be a new moon August 3, 5 BC so that the comet was not washed out by moon light. The sun may have been in Gemini in June 5 BC moving in reverse in the zodiac. Thus the comet was visible in Gemini in the morning in the east. Then the night the comet passed Arcturus perhaps to stand still above Bethlehem may have been the night the wise men entered Bethlehem and the house of Joseph and Mary.

Arcturus would pass directly overhead at Bethlehem at midnight. The comet may pass from west to east to Arcturus and stand still overhead as Arcturus passed west. The word for the star the wise men saw in the east is plural. Thus perhaps at the conjunction of the comet and Arcturus overhead the wise men entered the house of Joseph and Mary and found the Lord Jesus. Thus the comet could stand still over the house of Joseph and Mary.

Then Halley's comet may have been recorded in 12 BC. But the recorded movements of the comet be a comet or object God used to guide the wise men in 5 BC. The movements would be similar, only the recorded movements may have been from 5 BC and not 12 BC.

There was a similar record in 10 BC, year 48 of cycle 60 called a ghost record. If this was 9 BC in December and a sun miracle a year before Jesus' was conceived, then a comet and a new moon would be in Gemini because the sun would have moved 180° from Virgo to Pisces in September 7 BC. Two years later, earth then in a reverse orbit would be in Gemini/Taurus in June 5 BC. This is the interesting part. The sun normally is in Gemini/Taurus in June/July. Because earth was in a reverse orbit that month of July earth passed the sun in reverse in the very constellation the sun would normally be in. Then half an orbit later the sun could move when John the Baptist was conceived and a year later the sun move back and earth flow out of the reverse orbit when Jesus was conceived.

The date given was 12 BC in the 76 year cycle of Halley's comet. John Hind made at least one or two mistakes in matching comet records with comet Halley. Possibly, this comet if not Halley's comet, may have appeared in 5 BC. There may have appeared a comet in the chronicler Cheng Chung's first year in 5 BC. Then possibly this 12 BC comet record date was a 5 BC comet record, and the 5 BC record replaced the 12 BC record.

Together with Arcturus, this comet may have stood above where Jesus was, when the wisemen came, in the house of Joseph and Mary in Bethlehem when Jesus was almost 2 years old at midnight. Thus, the wise men must have arrived to worship Jesus before the sun returned September 15, 5 BC. The last day of the comet after 56 days, from day 8 of cycle 60 = July 21 - September 15, 5 BC, coincides perfectly with the return of the sun two years after Jesus' birth.

I may be mistaken, for then there should be two comet records, comet Halley in 12 BC and the comet the wisemen saw in 5 BC. Even there may be a third comet. There was a 10 BC record of a comet whose description was exactly the same as Halley's comet in 12 BC. This ghost record in 10 BC seemed to be made up to accompany an earthquake that year as part of a bad omen. There was a comet recorded in 5 BC in the spring. However, there was no movement recorded, and comets move. There is the possibility the dates and movement of a comet were recorded in 5 BC, and later incorporated as the 12 BC event. If there was a record in 5 BC that was similar to the record in 12 BC, the 5 BC description may have been used to describe the 12 BC Halley's comet.

The comet appearing in the west after sunset on the new moon, means the comet was travelling east. Then a few weeks later in August when the wisemen saw Arcturus rise in the east at sunset they may have seen the comet travel east till they met directly over Bethlehem. Then the comet could stand still over Bethlehem and the house of Joseph and Mary where Jesus was almost two years old. Thus the comet would still be travelling east to stand still over Jesus. Then a few weeks or days later on September 15, 5 BC, Herod slew the High Priests because he was also in a rage for that the wisemen did not return to him.

"According to Dr. E. Jerry Vardaman, the census under Caesar Augustus was taken every 17 years in the provinces (the occupied territories, including Israel). He places the first census under Quirinius in 12 B.C., 17 years before the second census of A.D. 6 (Chronos, Kairos, Christos, p. 305)"

However, in the book Augustus, Adrian Goldsworthy states there is no record of the Roman census. Nevertheless, Herod would need some way of assessing taxes. There was a census in Gaul in 27 BC, 12 BC and 14 AD. There was a Roman census of Quirinus in Judaea in 6 AD which was remembered as a traumatic event.

"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 the census in Israel August/September 7 BC.

The census of Augustus in 7 BC in the Bible in August / September makes perfect sense.

Thus Herod would know he called for a census in Bethlehem in 7 BC. Then when he inquired of the wisemen of when the star appeared that it was two years previous that 5 BC. That would equal this 7 BC and Herod would know that this was the Christ of Bethlehem.

Then Jesus may have been born about September 7, 12 BC, = lunar day 17 of the seventh month, and may have begun his ministry when he was 40. Then the ghost record of comet Hailey in 10 BC could be the star that led the wisemen to Jesus when Jesus was two years old.

Acts 7:22 "And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds.
7:23 And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel."

Deuteronomy 18:15 "The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;"

John 8:57 "Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?"

The Pharisees expected the Messiah to be an old man on a white horse.

Joshua was about forty when he went with the eleven others to spy out the land. Joshua said "Let us go up at once!" But the people rebelled, and had to wait another forty years. Thus Joshua was about the same age as Jesus then, 38 years and a half, when Jesus entered Jerusalem and was crucified.

Joshua was about eighty when he crossed the river Jordan, and conquered the Promised Land. Joshua was a type of Jesus, having the same name. Thus, the Jewish people may have expected the Messiah to be an old man when he would appear in Jerusalem.

Jesus may have been born in 12 BC and be turning 40, not 30, when he began his ministry. Then he would be seven years old when his parents Joseph and Mary returned to Galilee from Egypt after Herod died in 4 BC.

Exodus 30:23 "Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred and fifty shekels, and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty shekels, "

Perhaps there were sun miracles to mark 2000 and 250 years before Jesus' birth and the resuming of building the second temple 500 years before Jesus' birth in 7 BC.

The Egyptian Sothis began again 4198 BC or 4203 BC, 1460 years before it began again in 2737 BC or 2741 BC. Then the 800 after years of Adam may count as 800 years before the sothis in 4198 BC. Then 4198 BC back 800 years is 5000 BC, perhaps 5007 BC. Then there may be a significance in the number 5000 as well as the number 500. Perhaps from Adam in 5007 BC, half so much, Isaac born in 2507 BC. Perhaps the second temple restarted builiding in 507 BC. Half so much in 257 BC, the last king of the Zhou dynasty King Nan was in a panic and lost the battle. History does not say why the king was in panic.

Genesis 5:4 "And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:"

Jesus' birth about September 12, 7 BC fits chronological records the best.

Nehemiah 6:15 "So the wall was finished in the twenty and fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty and two days."

This should be 52 days from Sunday July 9, 458 BC to August 29, 458 BC. There was a record of a comet and astroid in Greece in 468 BC. However, the Greece dates are 10 years too far back. Thus, there may have been a sun miracle in 458 BC when the wall was completed, the sun moving to the other side of earth and meteorites swept into the path of earth, and perhaps debris from a comet. The comet if in 5 BC appeared 56 days from July 20 to September 15. Then a few days after the wall was finished was Rosh Hashanah the first day of the seventh month, the beginning of the year, a 49th year jubile year. The full moon on the 15th day, and thus the feast of tabernacles, began September 15, 458 BC just as the full moon and lunar eclipse September 15, 5 BC.

Moses went up to the mount Sinai to receive the commandments the second time in the month Elul.

Counting from the seventh Chinese month, day 8 of cycle 60, July 21, 5 BC = day 17 of the lunar month. If Jesus' birthday two years after September 12, 7 BC, was July 21, 5 BC, then two years after he was circumcised would be lunar day 25, July 28, 5 BC. Then his mother Mary would have purified herself 33 days. This 33rd day would be the new moon October 24 the first day of the 9th month Kilsev. The 17th day of the seventh month plus 41 days is the first day of Kilsev 17 + 41 = 58 days, two lunar months of 29 days. This would also be the last day of the month of Bul.

The same month the temple was finished. Comet Halley disappeared on the 56th day of cycle 60, perhaps October 20, 12 BC. But more likely day 56 of cyle 60 was the full moon and lunar eclipse = blood moon where the sun moved back, of Josephus, two years after Jesus' birth, Septembe 15, 5 BC.

Two years after Jesus' birth in 7 BC, would be this day 56 from the comet's first appearing from July 21, 5 BC - of the comet from day 8 of cycle 60 July 21, 5 BC. On the 13th day of the comet's appearing it appeared in the west on the new moon August 4, 5 BC. Thus the comet could appear without being washed out by the light of the moon. Thus the comet was traveling from the west to the east. Thus the comet could appear to stand still above Jesus at Bethlehem traveling east. The last day of the comet - day 56th, 56 days of the comet's appearing = September 15, 5 BC - would coincide with the sun and moon moving 180° back to create the blood moon recorded by Josephus. This blood moon was at the same time as the lunar eclipse.

Only the blood moon may not have been a naturally occurring lunar eclipse, but a red moon reflecting red light from a red sun.

The red colour of the sun may have been a result of the wave length of light needed to leave the same daily coral line as it normally would. Thus the comet should disappear this day also because the sun had moved and there was no way to make this comet continue in Scorpio when the sun returned 180°. This was a red blood moon, a reflection of a red sun, not just a natural lunar eclipse, September 15, 5 BC.

Thus the star of the wisemen may be both a comet record in 5 BC that replaced a Halley's comet record in 12 BC and stood still above Bethlehem with Arcturus while Arcturus appeared to move as the stars, and the comet stand still over Bethlehem, and the star Arcturus that appeared directly above Bethlehem September 5 BC at midnight when the sun was on the other side of earth. Thus the comet is correctly recorded to pass by Arcturus which passed directly 90° overhead a midnight upon Bethlehem.

Leviticus 12:2 "Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean.
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."

Nehemiah 4:2 "And he spake before his brethren and the army of Samaria, and said, What do these feeble Jews? will they fortify themselves? will they sacrifice? will they make an end in a day? will they revive the stones out of the heaps of the rubbish which are burned?

From the time the wall was completed to Jesus' sacrifice was 490 years, 10 times 49 year jubiles. There may have been a long day to hasten the building of the wall. " will they make an end in a day?"

Then there is the possibility the sun reversal for Lu Yang in battle was the year of his death and not the year of his appointment to be duke. Chinese autumn begins in August. Lu Yang was fighting in autumn when the sun rose in the west. The sun rose in the west in China and passed through three solar mansions. There are twelve constellations for the twelve months of the year. Thus if the sun passed through three constellations it would rise in the west to the meridian, 24 signs = 360° 3 signs = 90°. Nevertheless the sun must actually move in increments of 180° for earth to flow into or out of the reverse orbit of the sun.

The wall of Jerusalem was finished on the 25th of Elul, August/September. The dedication of the altar, according to I Maccabee 4:50 was on the 25th of Cheslev, December 13, 164 BC when the sun rose in the west to the meridian on China. Likewise as recoded in 2 Maccebee 1:18 the altar was dedicated by Nehemiah on the 25th of Chislev, November 25, 458 BC or December 24, 458 BC = the sun rose in the west to the meridian in China as recorded by Lu Yang. Luh Ching perhaps is Lu Yang who died in emperor Yuang's 10th year from 467 BC = 458 BC.

Maccabee 4:52 "They rose early on the morning of the twenty-fifth day of the ninth month, that is, the month of Kislev, in the year one hundred and forty-eight,*
4:53 and offered sacrifice according to the law on the new altar for burnt offerings that they had made."

2 Maccabee 1:18* "Since we shall be celebrating the purification of the temple on the twenty-fifth day of the month Kislev,d we thought it right to inform you, that you too may celebrate the feast of Booths and of the fire that appeared when Nehemiah, the rebuilder of the temple* and the altar, offered sacrifices.
1:19 For when our ancestors were being led into captivity in Persia,* devout priests at the time took some of the fire from the altar and hid it secretly in the hollow of a dry cistern, making sure that the place would be unknown to anyone.
1:20 Many years later, when it so pleased God, Nehemiah, commissioned by the king of Persia, sent the descendants of the priests who had hidden the fire to look for it."

2 Maccabee 15:20 "And now, when as all looked what should be the trial, and the enemies were already come near, and the army was set in array, and the beasts conveniently placed, and the horsemen set in wings,
15:21 Maccabeus seeing the coming of the multitude, and the divers preparations of armour, and the fierceness of the beasts, stretched out his hands toward heaven, and called upon the Lord that worketh wonders, knowing that victory cometh not by arms, but even as it seemeth good to him, he giveth it to such as are worthy:
15:22 Therefore in his prayer he said after this manner; O Lord, thou didst send thine angel in the time of Ezekias king of Judea, and didst slay in the host of Sennacherib an hundred fourscore and five thousand:
15:23 Wherefore now also, O Lord of heaven, send a good angel before us for a fear and dread unto them; 24And through the might of thine arm let those be stricken with terror, that come against thy holy people to blaspheme. And he ended thus."

The sun retreated ten steps on the sun dial = at least 90° from the noon position to the beginning, most likely ten hours from the sunset in the west to the sunrise in the east = the sun set in the east at the time of Sennecherib's war with Hezekiah in 703 BC. Then the sun rose from the sunset position in Israel, past the noon position in Israel = the sun rose in the west on China = noon Israel, and set in the east in Israel = noon China on Hanukkah December 12, 164 BC in just the same way. All three times the same sun miracle, 703 BC, 458 BC and 164 BC were in the 49th year jubile from 1241 BC. The prayer of Maccabee was answered as the prayer of Isaiah and Nehemiah and Joshua.

This must be the time of Lu Yang's observation of the sun reversing three solar mansions rising from the western sunset to the meridian. Thus the connection to the dedication of the altar both times. Thus at the same time as the altar was dedicated on the 25th of Kilsev = December 13, 164 BC; that the sun rose in the west to the meridian in China. Thus the sun would be at the noon position and then set in the east on Israel. Then also on the 25th of Chislev November 25, 458 BC when the altar was dedicated by Nehemiah, the sun rose from the west to the meridian in China in autumn/winter on Lu Yang. Thus Israel would see the sun at noon set in the east.

Thus both years 458 BC and 164 BC were jubile year 49 when the altar was dedicated. Thus Jesus' sacrifice on the cross was on the last jubile year 49, April 3, 33 AD.

Matthew 23:19 "Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?
23:20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon."

Likewise, when Jesus was in the tomb on the sabbath, the sun may have rose in the west and set in the east, and there be dark and be the evening to begin the first day of the week when Mary Magdelene came to the tomb. Then the sun must have suddenly and brilliantly rose in the east Sunday, April 5, 33 AD when Jesus rose from the dead.

Then 490 days after November 25, 458 BC is the passover, Sunday, March 30, 456 BC.

Then 490 days before November 25, 458 BC is Yom Kippur July 24, 459 BC.

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 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."

The earth rotates each day. Also, the earth orbits the sun each year. Thus, when the sun moved to the other side of the earth, earth was in a reverse zodiac. Thus the zodiac was turned in reverse like clay turned in reverse against the seal.

Job 38:31 "Canst thou bind the sweet influences of the seven stars, or loose the bands of Orion?
38:32 Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?"

Orion appears as the great giant. The seven stars of the pleiades appear in his hand. The three stars form the belt, with the sword just below. The constellation appears as a depiction of the Son of God.

Psalm 45:3 "Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty."

Mazzaroth - Geneva Bible: Certaine starres so called: some thinke they were the twelve signes (zodiac). The North starre with those that are about him?"

Denube in the handle of the Big Dipper was the north star about this time. The handle points to the star Arcturus. Arcturus was the name given, not to an individual star but to the whole constellation Bootes. Bootes is the herdsman.

As you can see, the loins of the Herdsman is Arcturus. In earth's normal orbit Arcturus passes overhead at midnight in January. Sheep are born 144 days after September in January. Sheep are bred in August/September. Thus, the Herdsman, Arcturus that marked the birth of sheep in January, passed overhead in September when Jesus was born, September 12, 7 BC. Because, God must have moved the sun to the other side of earth when his Son Jesus was born.





Arcturus appears to be a constellation drawing of the Cross.





The shepherds who watched over their sheep at night in breeding season, in September.

Job 38:33 "Knowest thou the course of heaven, or canst thou set the rule thereof in the earth?"

Geneva Bible: "Canst thou cause the heavenly bodies to have any power over the earthly bodies?"

The sons of Arcturus may point to Jesus the Son of God. Thus Arcturus may be the star that lead the wisemen to Bethlehem to worship Jesus. Arcturus may be from the Arabic word Ash meaning night watcher. Thus the star may have appeared over head in the middle of the night in September when the sun was moved to the other side of earth, when the angels appeared to the shepherds keeping watch over the sheep singing the praise of the Lord. Shepherds keep watch over the sheep in mating season in August/September.

Amos 5:8 "Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name:"

The seven stars may be the Big Dipper, with Arcturus at the end of the handle.

Crack-making on day 32: on this day we should perform the you-ritual to dou the Big Dipper and to fa Orion. Use this.
Heji 32253.

Perhaps this oracle bone was from Wending's reign. Then Joshua's long day August 24, 1241 BC would be on this day 31. Then the following night, day 32. The Big Dipper normal only that night because previous that night earth had been in a reverse orbit of the sun and after the following night earth would flow into a reverse orbit of the sun again. Thus the night before the handle of the Big Dipper would point up at midnight day 30, then down at midnight day 31, then up at midnight on day 32. Thus the night of day 31 Orion would be visible.

"On the 6th day, chia-wu [31], at night, the moon was eclipsed." divined by Bin = Wuding.
(Ping-pien 57, Ho-chi 11486)

This probably is Wuding's day 31 of a lunar eclipse, June 29, 1368 BC visible from China. Nevertheless, there is the possibility this is lunar day 6, day 31 of 60, August 24, 1241 BC when the moon must move as well as the sun and the moon reflecting the sun would change color and perhaps be mistaken for a lunar eclipse.

"The divination on day kuei-szu [30] inquired: "Will there be a disaster today?" On day Chia-wu [31] there was a halo [yun]"
Paiken 2

Divination on day kuei-szu [30] was performed by Cheng (could be Zheng, Wuding): "If the sun continued its halo, [chi], will it bring disaster this year?" In the third month.
(Chien-pien, 5.17.3)

This was probably during Wuding's reign. If during Wending's reign, this could be the solar eclipse of May 26, 1236 BC visible from China. This record of a halo does not appear like a solar eclipse and probably is not a lunar eclipse because the sun has the halo. There is the possibility this is a sun miracle during Wuding's reign the same day as the Big Dipper pointed up instead of down. There is also the possibility this is an oracle bone during Wending's reign and the halo is the sun being dimmed while it stood still in the noon Israeli sky for 24 hours on day 31. Then the Chinese would also see the same dimmed sun standing still over the west 24 hours then proceed to rise in the west that day 31. Sometimes the sun was described as being purple by the Chinese during a sun miracle. Thus the halo.

See Excel spread sheet or PDF of NASA Lunar Eclipse dates and their day of 60 for Wuding's reign and after. See rich text format Shang lunar eclipse dates. You will see all the lunar eclipse dates for Wuding's reign covered: Day 31 = June 29, 1368 BC = perhaps the third month from Spring in March, Day 36 = January 3, 1368 BC, day 51 = November 12, 1367 BC (however day 51 may be during Wu Yi's reign and be the partial solar eclipse on July 16, 1276 BC.

(Even this eclipse on day 51, July 16, 1276 BC may have rather been a sun miracle on new years day in Egypt) and day 22 = June 8, 1377 BC, day 9 (night of day 8) September 21, 1354 BC, day 20 October 13, 1356 BC and 14 days later a solar eclipse visible from China on day 34, October 27, 1356 BC, and was perhaps recorded on day 36.

On the same oracle bone Heji 11483 was inscribed a lunar eclipse on day 21 and a lunar eclipse on day 36. For this to be a solar eclipse followed by a lunar eclipse this is a few days out. If this was for Wu Yi and not Wuding, this could describe a sun miracle during the Exodus at the end of the lunar month March 14, 1281 BC marking the first month Aviv, and a sun miracle on the Exodus the night of day 36, March 29, 1281 BC. However, it was divined by Zheng = Wuding who lived more than 60 years before the Exodus.

Records of the sun having a zhi during Wu Yi and Wending's reigns, were for days 42, 17, 18, 25 and 51. There are no possible eclipse matches for day 42, 18, 25. And for day 51 the recorded chih may be a separate day than the eclipse. Also, Chih means blazing, hardly an eclipse. Chi or Zhi means blemish.. Morelikely a zhi was the colouration of the sun or moon during a sun miracle than an eclipse. Day 25 may be the sun returning on May 12, 1280 BC when the spies returned and Joshua said "Let us go up at once".

This record or worship of the Big Dipper dou if in Wuding's reign may be of a sun miracle in the oracle bones of China about 1360 BC perhaps when Aaron or Moses were born and the children of Israel afflicted by Pharaoh in Egypt. The high Nile began July 17. So the Nile would have risen when Pharaoh commanded the Hebrew boys to be cast into the river, perhaps then in August/September. Thus this would be a type of Herod slaying the Israelite boys two and under when the wise men came September 5 BC. The Big Dipper pointing up at midnight in August/September would show a very similar night sky to what the shepherds and the wise men would see September 12, 7 BC when Jesus was born. The wise men arriving at Bethlehem to worship Jesus two years later. This sky would be the night sky after the sun miracle on Jesus' birth September 12, 7 BC.

The sun may move back and forth six months after September 12, 7 BC, again one year later at Rosh Hashanah - at the head of the year, the blowing of trumpets - September 14, 6 BC, and six months after September 14, 6 BC and move back September 15, 5 BC and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun after the wise men had found Jesus.

Arcturus points to the seasons in its night time appearing. The handle of the Big Dipper points down at midnight to Arcturus and Virgo where the sun was before September 12, 7 BC. Then the sun moved 180° and Arcturus passed overhead at midnight September 12, 7 BC. Arcturus would pass directly over Bethlehem at midnight in this reverse orbit in August/September in the two years up to September 15, 5 BC when the sun moved back and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun. Then the wise men in August/September of 5 BC may have followed Arcturus to Jerusalem and to Bethlehem and to Jesus. Thus to be in Jerusalem before the sun moved back September 15, 5 BC. Perhaps the sweet influences are the sweet influences of fruit in spring when the sun normally is moving into Orion.

Perhaps the sweet influences are the sweet influences of the life of Christ. A flower when crushed gives a sweet fragrance. Moreover, the night sky at sunset would see Orion above normally in April. However, earth was in a reverse orbit the night of Gethsemane. Thus the night sky when Jesus prayed in the garden would be the Pleiades and Orion. Thus the bands of death were loosed when Jesus rose from the dead. Thus the sweet influences of eternal life in Jesus' prayer.

Mark 14:36 "And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt."

Jeremiah 6:17 "Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken."

The sign stating "The Place of the Trumpeter" just outside the Temple, at the corner of the temple steps:





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, good will toward men.
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.
2:17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child."

Jesus may have been born the 17th day of the 7th month = September 13, 7 BC. From the 15th day to the 22nd day of the 7th month was the feast of tabernacles. Then Jesus may have been born in the midst of the feast of tabernacles.

John 7:14 "Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught."

John 7:42 "Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?"

Thus the connection with Jesus' birth, September 12, 7 BC, in Bethlehem about this time, the time of the feast of tabernacles.

Arcturus is the only star mentioned by name in the Bible, other than the star Remphan which may be Sirius. Arcturus was from the Arabic word Ash meaning night watch. I am very glad for those who watch over my soul. The sun must move to the other side of the earth that day. Then Arcturus would pass directly over Bethlehem that September 13, 7 BC. Thus the shepherds watching their sheep at night would see Arcturus pass directly overhead when the angels appeared. Thus Arcturus would lead both the shepherds, and two years later, the wisemen, to Jesus.

The Roman five year census is reported to have been from 8 BC to 7 BC according to Susan S. Carroll. 8 BC was a seventh year Sabbath fallow year. Thus, Israel could sow in 7 BC and brung un the fruits of the year to pay taxes in September 7 BC when they arrived in Bethlehem when Jesus must be born. Nevertheless, there is no recorded census in Israel at the time of Jesus' birth. 22 BC was the 50th jubile year, less 14 years = 8 BC a fallow Sabbath year.

If Elizabeth conceived just after her husband performed the temple services at the end of the seventh month July 5, 8 BC, then her sixth month may have been the new moon January 1, 7 BC. Then Mary may have conceived Jesus of the Holy Ghost in the sixth month, about January 3, 7 BC = 252 days the normal 36 week pregnancy, to September 12, 7 BC.

Then Jesus would be born 9 months later in September. Then Zechariah could have performed the duties of the High Priest by the last day of the feast of tabernacles, five days before July 5, 8 BC, June 19, 8 BC being when the angel Gabriel spoke to him on the day of Atonement. Then the sixth month, Adar, would start December 30, 7 BC nine months to September 12, 7 BC with a second month of Adar the lunar month beginning February 1, 7 BC. Then John the Baptist could have been born on the Passover, Sunday, March 15, 7 BC.

Matthew 21:42 "Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
21:44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder."

Better to be ground as fine flour for the LORD now than to be ground to powder when he returns.

Genesis 18:27 "And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes:"

Job 42:5 "I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.
42:6 Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes."

Matthew 21:23 "And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority?
21:24 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things.
21:25 The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe him?
21:26 But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all hold John as a prophet.
21:27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.
21:28 But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.
21:29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.
21:30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.
21:31 Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.
21:32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him."

The door is closed to those that do not accept Jesus' authority.

Mark 11:9 "And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
11:10 Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest."

Probably Jesus' birth was in 7 BC: In 7 BC Joseph may have had to appear in his hometown of Bethlehem to pay taxes at the census that year according to Susan S. Carroll. The census year from 8 BC to 7 BC would end in this seventh month in 7 BC. Jesus may have been born Saturday, September 12, 7 BC or Sunday, September 13, 7 BC, then Jesus could have been circumcised on the eighth day, Sunday, September 20, 7 BC two days after the end of the feast of booths. Then the sun may have moved to the other side of the earth for a sudden sunrise on his birth to give the shepherds light to find Jesus in the manger. Then likewise, John would be born about Sunday, March 15, 7 BC and circumcised on the eighth day Sunday, March 22, 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 7:23 "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?"

Jesus also may have been born on the seventh day, September 12, 7 BC.

Then John the Baptist may have been conceived about July 7, 7 BC at the end of the lunar month of the seventh, after the day of Atonement and the feast of tabernacles when Zechariah would have finished all his temple service. Then Jesus would have been conceived about the third day of Adar, Sunday, January 4, 7 BC. 252 days later is Sunday, September 13, 7 BC. So a sun miracle perhaps at the time Elizabeth conceived, July 7, 8 BC. Then 180 days later a sun miracle about January 4, 7 BC when Jesus may have been conceived. Then a sun miracle about July 7, 7 BC and earth would flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun. The sun could move to the other side of the earth Sunday, September 13, 7 BC perhaps when Jesus was born and the star Arcturus appear directly overhead.

Then two years later, earth still in a reverse orbit, the wise men would see Arcturus directly overhead at midnight in September when they sought the King of the Jews. Arcturus would pass directly overhead of Bethlehem September 5 BC. Then the sun must return September 15, 5 BC and the moon be turned to blood the night of the lunar eclipse. The moon does not appear noticeably red during a naturally occurring lunar eclipse. Thus the sun would appear purple, to leave the same daily coral layer, and the reflection on the moon, ruby / blood red. Thus Herod killed all the boys two years old and under because Arcturus first appeared to the wise men, as they related to Herod, directly above September 13, 7 BC two years previous that September 5 BC.

Psalm 81:1 "Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
8:2 Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
8:3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day."

The solemn feast day is the beginning of the feast of tabernacles, on the full moon of the seventh month. Thus two years later on the full moon of the seventh month the high priest had been executed by Herod. Thus perhaps this was the reason Jesus' birth was not celebrated being on the same day of the year. Thus Jesus was born in a stable, just as at that time the people would be keeping the feast of booths. Sunday September 13, 7 BC was the third day of the feast of booths, of tabernacles.

Joshua's Long Day continued

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

This is a record of fact, an eye witness account - not alleged, not a metaphor, not an allegory, and not pretext, not a myth set to poetry and not a command to the deities of the sun and moon.

Purple Sun, and Crimson and Ruby Sun

There may be a search for evidence of sun miracles in the daily coral layers. True wisdom costs us our all. The price of wisdom is not money. It is our will and beyond ruby like suns. The price of ancient coral is about $100,000 a kilo.

Job 28:18 "No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies."

Perhaps the sun appeared purple as a ruby as the Chinese recorded at the sun miracle in 141 BC when the sun may have been dimmed. "On the last day of the twelfth month (11 February 141 BC) it thundered. The sun appeared purple. Five planets moved in retrograde and guarded the constellation T'ai-wei. The moon passed through the center of the constellation T'ien-t'ing."
The Grand Scribes Records, Volume II, p.213.

The moon was in the polar region of the sky. The sun must move 180° from Scorpius to Taurus. Thus the sun would appear nearer the pole star and in the polar region. The sun must move 180° to the zodiac path six months away. Thus the path of the zodiac stayed the same.

"If it thunders in the sign of Taurus, revolutions against..If it thunders in the sign of Gemini, fear and distress from the foreigners.."
The Dead Sea Scrolls, Study Edition, p.679.

If the sun moved in Scorpius it must appear 180° away in Taurus. Then earth's revolution around the sun would be in reverse.

If the sun and moon moved to the other side of the earth, the sun and moon must also move up or down to keep earth in the same season. This is accomplished by moving six months ahead to the same zodiac path = same season on earth. Normally this position would be six constellations of the zodiac away in that constellation the sun would be in six months ago, the same as six months ahead. Nevertheless, if the sun did not move up or down after moving 180° around the earth, earth must shift on its axis to keep earth in the same season.

Notes: "the relative resonance of the sun and moon mirrors that 'communicate' with the 'higher poles'... of that which could 'communicate' with the 'highest pole'
Huai Nan Tzu, Peering into the obscure, p.129

Thus the sun and moon may move up to the pole region to keep the same season on earth. Earth did not move its axis. Only plane of earth's orbit moved. Thus the sun must move up to the pole region.

If 90 days before the spring equinox earth must pivot 180° backward or forward, similar to this February 11, 141 BC. If you have a globe of earth, move the sun to the other side of the globe. Then pivot the base on a flat table 180° to the sun to keep earth in the same season. Thus, if earth did not pivot, the sun must move up or down after moving 180° to keep earth in the same season.

If earth were to shift, the sun and moon may have appeared in the polar constellation. This shift would be like the precession of the equinox which pivots 360° in 26000 years. Thus the zodiac of Yao made just after Yao shot down the 9 suns = the sun stood still in the sky for 9 days.

If earth pivoted, (pivot a globe stand on a flat table and the axis will pivot also) it would pivot not 10 degrees for 10 days but 20 degrees for 10 days, because 180° is 2 times 90 days and the sun 180° on the other side of earth, earth must pivot 180°. Earth did not move, the sun moved up or down to keep earth in the same season.

James Legge commented Yao's astronomers He and Ho could not have seen the four stars culminate in the four seasons in the time of Yao 2300 BC or 2000 BC. The stars could not have culminated so till 700 years more recent. Here you see the stars appear 1400 years more recent. The date of Yao given here as 2315 BC, and the calculation from April 1 in Genesis for Joseph to appear on Pharaoh's birthday April 1 ten days before the vernal equinox April 10, make the observation of the four stars in Yao's Canon only possible with this sun movement. Thus this model is the solution to a long time big puzzle. Xueshun emailed me about 2008 that no solution to this puzzle had yet been proposed.

Because earth must remain in the same season, the sun and moon and planets may appear in the polar constellation.

The term "blue moon" may come from these ancient times when a purple sun would reflect the colour blue from the moon.

Theoretically the blue moon was when there was a volcanic eruption that made the sun and moon appear blue. However, the origin of the term may refer back to Old Testament days when the sun appeared purple during a sun miracle. This was so rare, that a blue moon signified a rare event. So now when we say there is a blue moon, it simply refers to two full moons in a 31 day month, such as this last July 1, 2015 BC and July 31, 2015.

Here you see what the sun may have looked like while it stood still in the sky for Joshua, both on August 24, 1241 BC and February 15, 1240 BC. This is an example of how a purple sun may look. Light from the purple end of the light spectrum does not radiate much heat. Thus, one would expect this to be the colour of the sun when the sun stood still or rose in the west so as not to overheat one side of the earth. Nevertheless, earth must receive heat from somewhere else to keep a constant temperature. Even the invisible ultra-violet light that may be a part of this may not cause eye damage. It is the invisible infra-red light that burns a hole in your retina. Picture taken by a NASA satellite of ultra-violet light. The moon is the dark spot in front of the sun:





Perhaps the sun was this bright red crimson colour when the sun ascended suddenly in the east, such as for Gideon perhaps on August 25, 1241 BC. Light from the red and infra-red end of the light spectrum causes heat. Thus one would expect the sun to be crimson red when the sun travelled east west for a short day of only 3 or 4 hours. Then this one side of the earth would receive the heat it normally would receive in 12 hours. This infra-red light would cause eye damage. At least the sun would not be in the sky for long to stare at it. Here is an example of a crimson sun:





The word for sun in:

Judges 8:13 "Gideon returned before the sun was up."

Sun = khar-sooth' = sun burn. Thus a brilliant sun could create sun burn.

From H2775 (Apparently in the sense of a red tile used for scraping); a potsherd, that is, (by implication) a pottery; the name of a gate at Jerusalem: - east. This is "heres". Joshua renamed the city he dwelt in Timnath- heres = portion of the sun. This may be a fitting name after the sun miracle he successfully requested before God.

That is, perhaps the sun was purple when it rose in the west at 11 PM to the noon position where it stayed for 24 hours, then set in the east. Then perhaps the sun was crimson like red tile when it rose suddenly in the east at 11 PM or midnight. Thus, the writer of Judges would say Gideon returned before the crimson sun suddenly ascended in the east. It has been assumed Gideon started back before the sun rose. However with the extra 36 or 60 hours Gideon could have arrived back before the sun rose.

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."

Psalm 37:5 "Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
37:6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday."

Psalm 121:5 "The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
121:6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night."

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."

Hosea 6:2 "After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight."

Luke 1:78 "Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us,
1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace."

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."

Luke 2:16 "And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
2:17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child."

The dayspring Zachariah stated may have been the sun suddenly rising out of the east when the shepherds came to see the Christ. Thus the night suddenly become day. Thus, this be when the wisemen saw the star of the Christ two years before they came to worship him, when Herod had dilligently inquired. Thus the sun return two years later at the lunar eclipse, blood moon from the deaths of the priests recorded by Josephus, September 15, 5 BC. Thus earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun two years later, September 15, 5 BC.

John the Baptist was born six months before Jesus. Thus, the sun may move 186 days before Jesus' birth, the month of the Passover, the tenth day of the month, March 10, 7 BC, when the passover lamb was to be taken into the home four days to be sacrificed on the 14th day the day of the Passover. The sun may move back on Jesus' birth, then to the otherside of earth for two more years of a reverse orbit. So either the dayspring refers to a sun miracle that day Zacharias spoke, or a sun miracle yet to come when Jesus' was born.

That is, the sun suddenly rose in the east to stand directly above. This is in the past tense. Then this sun miracle may have occurred at John's birth, perhaps March 10, 7 BC. Then there could be a sun miracle six months later, 186 days later, half an orbit later, on Jesus' birth September 13, 7 BC. Perhaps the first sun miracle was on Jesus' birth. Thus the reason the wise men saw his star, Arcturus, rising in the east in September 13, 7 BC. Thus these words may have been uttered after Jesus was born or prophesied the sun miracle was yet to come at Jesus' birth.

"In 7 BC, 2nd month, 13th day, the Chancellor -Zhai Fangjin died on this day."
Wars with the Xiongnu, p.441

This should be Friday, March 13, 7 BC. Then half an orbit later the sun may move back and forth again, Saturday, September 12, 7 BC on Jesus' birth.

Sometime before Zhai Fangjin passed away a junior Counsellor Li Xin at the Chancellor's Office had written him a memorial, "We are experiencing dramatic changes to the climatic and environment conditions, Heaven is sending signs of rapprochment through calamity and the conditions are aggravating by the day..."
Wars with the Xiongnu, p.441

Thus, even before John or Jesus was born there may have been sun miracles the year and date they were conceived.

"Autumn, 7th month, 1st day. Liu Xin accepted Wang Mang's resignation and bestowed upon him five hundred jin of gold, a carriage - anche drawn by four horses - and was ordered to return to his own residence."
Wars with the Xiongnu, p.448

This should be the new moon Sunday September 12, 6 BC. Thus a sun miracle when the sun moved back and forth that day may have sent an omen for Wang Mang's resignation.

Matthew 17:2 "And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light."

Earth orbit tilt





Here you see the sun in the noon position over Israel at the beginning of the Joshua's long day sun miracles. Note earth's axis is pointed about 18° away from the sun. This is the normal January/February inclination. Earth's axis is pointed to the pole star for 1241 BC - 1240 BC and does not shift. Earth is untouched.





To see Israel rotating with the sun click here. Note the sun's sun spots do not rotate to face earth. At the end of the sun miracle of Joshua taking Jericho or Merom 12 hours later, the other side of the sun faces earth. The sun rotates in 25 days with earth's orbit. The sun rotates at its equator 24.47 days. The sun appears to rotate from earth at its equator in 26.24 days. Therefore, when earth orbited the sun in reverse, the sun would appear to rotate in 22.23 days from earth. Nevertheless, there should be no noticeable evidence.

This animation depicts the sun going around the earth perhaps at the battle of Merom February 15, 1240 BC for Joshua one year after Joshua's first sun miracle at Jericho. Although you will see Israel staying in the noon position with the sun just like it did on Joshua's long day. You will see first the earth moving clockwise around the sun in reverse. Then the sun moving with earth's rotation to stay in the noon position over Israel. Then you will see earth flowing out of the reverse orbit of the sun. Earth is now moving counterclockwise around the sun, like normal.





Here you see the sun has revolved halfway around the earth with earth's rotation 12 hours later, still in the noon position over Israel. Now you see the sun has moved down to keep earth in the same season.

In the battle of Merom the sun may have stood still at noon on Israel for this 12 hours.

Here you see a 3D planet java applet:
You can move and tilt these planets just as the sun would tilt the orbits of the planets when it moved up or down to keep earth in the same season in this java applet.

Mount Herman:





2 Corinthians 4:6 "For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ."

Galatians 3:5 "He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?"

2 Corinthians 3:9 "For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory."

In Israel

The sun is often associated with healing. The sun provides most of our vitamin D, which is very important to health and healing. Laser treatment for the skin and muscles is based on how sun light heals.

2 Kings 15:27 "In the two and fiftieth year of Azariah king of Judah Pekah the son of Remaliah began to reign over Israel in Samaria, and reigned twenty years.

2 Kings 15:2 "Sixteen years old was he when he began to reign, and he reigned two and fifty years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Jecholiah of Jerusalem."

2 Chronicles 26:3 "Sixteen years old was Uzziah when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and two years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Jecoliah of Jerusalem."

Azariah and Uzziah are two separate kings. Azariah may have reigned 38 years from 840 BC to 802 BC. The 49th jubile year would be 802 BC from 1241 BC. Then Uzziah 52 years from 802 BC to 749 BC, Jotham from 749 BC 16 years to 733 BC, Ahaz 16 years from 733 BC to 717 BC, Hezekiah 29 years from 717 BC to 688 BC, and a co-reign with Manasseh 12 years from 700 BC to 688 BC. Thus Manasseh may have reigned 55 years from 700 BC to 645 BC.

"In his, King Le, first year, which was mow-shin 45 of cycle (60 from 2636 BC = 852 BC), when he came to the throne, he built the palace of E, and gave a Charge to the prime minister Loh, the duke E of Yung. The people of ts'oo presented tortoise and other shells."

E was in Sze-ch'uen, Yung was in Honan.
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.153

There may have been a sun miracle in 49th jubile year in Israel, 849 BC, whereupon the ailing Emperor died or was assassinated. Or there may have been a sun miracle that year that King Le gave a Charge.

Then Azariah may have reigned 38 years from 840 BC to 802 BC. Then Uzziah may have reigned 52 years from 802 BC to 749 BC.

2 Kings 15:28 "And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD: he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin.
15:29 In the days of Pekah king of Israel came Tiglathpileser king of Assyria, and took Ijon, and Abelbethmaachah, and Janoah, and Kedesh, and Hazor, and Gilead, and Galilee, all the land of Naphtali, and carried them captive to Assyria."

This was the same event:

Isaiah 9:1 "Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations.
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.
9:3 Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
9:4 For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian.
9:5 For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.
9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this."

"dimness" is from the hebrew word "to fly". Thus the phoenix may be pictured to carry the sun east as it stood still in the sky while the sun was dimmed to leave the same daily coral line. The day of Midian when Gideon fought the Midianites on Joshua's long day - the sun rising in the west and setting in the east for 24 extra hours of day light, and Gideon slaying 120,000 men and Zeba and Zalmunna, 60 miles from Tabor to Succoth in 36 hours of day light, before returning before the sun suddenly and brilliantly ascended in the east must be like the resurrection Sunday when Jesus had victory over the grave.

Zalmunna means shade has been denied. Numbers 14:9 "their shade is departed from them" said Joshua 40 years earlier when the 12 spies returned to camp. This battle of Gideon must be the same day as Joshua's long day, thus shade has been denied. Thus, the sun setting in the east on that long day, and the sun suddenly rising in the east Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC, when Gideon returned = Judges 8:13 as the sun would set in the east the Sabbath Jesus was in the grave, and suddenly rise in the east on Sunday Jesus' resurrection.

You will note light is mentioned two times in Isaiah 9:2. The first time may be the sun rising from the west, then standing still at noon for Joshua for 24 hours - then the sun set in the east. The second time light is mentioned, may refer to the brilliant dawning of the sun in the east Sunday, August 25, 1241 BC = a type of Jesus' resurrection.

The word darkness, followed by light gadol = great light, followed by impenetrable darkness = death shadow, followed by light shine = sunrise.

Jesus obtained the victory from the grave, Sunday, April 5, 33 AD. That Friday may be 12 or more hours longer. That Saturday the sun may have rose in the west and set in the east. That Sunday the sun may have suddenly rose in the east only a few hours after setting in the east, whereupon Jesus rose from the dead. The sun suddenly ascended from the east as in Judges 8:13 on Jesus resurrection. Thus Jesus' victory over death was like the day of Midian.

Jesus' birth may be like the day of Midian, September 13, 7 BC, as Joshua's Long Day and Gideon, the same August/September. There must be a sun miracle on Jesus' birth when the angels appeared to the shepherds at night. The same day Arcturus appear directly above Bethlehem at midnight because the sun was on the otherside of earth. Arcturus, the only star mentioned by name in the Bible, normally is directly above Bethlehem at 12PM noon. Thus for Arcturus to be the star the wisemen saw and came to Bethlehem two years later, the sun must move to the otherside of earth in September.

Gideon's battle must have been the same day as Joshua's long day, August 24, 1241 BC:

Judges 8:10 "Now Zebah and Zalmunna were in Karkor, and their hosts with them, about fifteen thousand men, all that were left of all the hosts of the children of the east: for there fell an hundred and twenty thousand men that drew sword.
8:11 And Gideon went up by the way of them that dwelt in tents on the east of Nobah and Jogbehah, and smote the host: for the host was secure.
8:12 And when Zebah and Zalmunna fled, he pursued after them, and took the two kings of Midian, Zebah and Zalmunna, and discomfited all the host.
8:13 And Gideon the son of Joash returned from battle before the sun was up,"

790 BC was the 50th year, a jubile. This was in emperor Seuen's 37th year. The following King Yew began his reign in 780 BC and his sixth year was a solar eclipse of 776 BC. Thus back 5 years to 781 BC to the death of King Seuen in King Seuen's 46th year. Then back 10 years to King Seuen's 37th year: 826 BC - 36 years = 790 BC = the jubile in year 50 in Israel from Joshua's conquest in 1241 BC.

Azariah began his reign when he was 16 years old. Uzziah is not Azariah. If Uzziah began when he was 16 years also, then reigned from 802 BC, he would be 38 in 780 BC when King Yew began his reign as emperor in China.

Thus, a sun miracle may mark Uzziah's 38th year = Jesus sacrifice when Jesus was 38 years old.

"In his 37th year a horse changed into a fox"
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books. p 156

"In his 32nd year a horse changed into a man"
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books. p 156

This 32nd year would be the 50th year of jubile, 791 BC. 12 years back from his death in his 44th year in 780 BC. There could have been a sun miracle whereby the sun would be darkened at noon as it was when Jesus was on the cross. Thus, this 791 BC could be the fulfillment of Amos 8:9. 200 years later: September 7, 591 BC was the sun darkened at sunset in China = noon in Israel when Jerusalem was taken on the 7th day of the lunar month, day 40 of cycle 60 in China. No eclipse dates match day 40 in 591 BC.

Or this was 795 BC, 46th year 780 BC back 15 years to his 32nd year 780 BC + 15 = 795 BC. This should be the new Armenian Sothis cycle. 2010 AD was supposed to begin again the 1460 Armenian Sothis cycle. A correction of 115 years to both the Egyptian and Armenian Sothis cycle 2010 AD + 115 years = 2125 AD. 2126 - 1460 -1460 = 795 BC.

Pan was the angel that looked like a horse or goat and also like a man. About 60 AD Plutarch stated this was why "the oracles had ceased to give answers". Thus perhaps God ceased to cause sun miracles after Jesus had come.

This angel that appeared as a horse may have been the origin of the legend of the chariot of horses that drew the sun up in the sky. Thus the angel that moved the sun, on the day of a sun miracle, was like the four beasts before God's throne.

Ezekiel 1:10 "As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle."

Thus the ox like creature may be like the horse in Ezekiel and like the Kelin, the deer like Chinese phoenix. Thus the ox like creature may be like a horse, and the creature with the face of a man be like a man. Thus the angel like a horse, and the angel like a man.

This horse may be an angel that moved the sun that year, one of the four beasts before God's throne. You may see the chronology of the Kings of Judah below. This was the 6th year of Uzziah in 790 BC. The 37th year of the Chinese Emperor Seuen from 826 BC.

Isaiah prophesied of Jesus. Thus as the day of Midian may be the victory Jesus had over death the resurrection Sunday that was in type like the sun miracle of the sun rising in the west and setting in the east that Saturday Sabbath. Then the sun brilliantly and suddenly rising in the east only a few hours after the sun set in the east. Thus "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light". Both the light of Jesus' example and the sun miracles during his life time and at his resurrection.

The third day may mark a sudden sunrise in the east like there must have been 5 AM August 25, 1241 BC. Likewise, the "dayspring" means sunrise and refers to Isaiah 9 and its description of the battle of Gideon. Thus "dayspring" may refer to a likeness and brightness of the sudden sunrise 5 AM August 25, 1241 BC. The dayspring may also refer to a sun miracle on the day of Jesus' resurrection Sunday April 5, 33 AD. Thus the sudden and brilliant sunrise of Judges 8:13 may have occurred in the resurrection morning.

The sun at noon in the Golan Heights Israel September 18, 2010.





Exodus 34:10 "And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels





Exodus 34:10 such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee.
34:11 Observe thou that which I command thee this day: behold, I drive out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite."

"'Marvels' (pil^i) Strong's 6381, preceded with "Nun" a command, (entreat). 'wonders' that are incomprehensible.
Designates either cosmic wonders or historical achievements on behalf of Israel...things that are unusual, beyond human capabilities...it is essential that the miracle is so abnormal as to be unexplainable except as showing God's care or retribution."

Mark 5:19 "Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.
5:20 And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel."

The steep hill of the Gadarenes where when the devils entered the swine, 2,000 swine ran into the water and were choked. The Israelites were not supposed to keep swine. The people of Galilee were forced into Judaism about 100 BC. Swine gone and devils gone. Legion in his right mind:





Deuteronomy 29:29 "The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law."

How God did it is his secret. However, we now may know what this means to the movement of the sun and the earth. Basics in our understanding of the sun and earth, our world and God's power.

Jesus' Hebrew name is Joshua = Salvation. The first sun miracle when coming into the Promised Land may be an early sunrise the day Joshua took 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.
6:16 And it happened at the seventh time, the priest blew with the trumpets, and Joshua said to the people Shout! For the LORD has given you the city.
6:20 And the people shouted, and blew with the trumpets, and it happened, when the 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."

Exodus 34:22 "And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the first fruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year's end."

"at the year's end" means "coming round, circuit of time or space". "a revolution" - "t quphah" - Strong's 8622.

The beginning month was Nisan when Joshua entered the Promised Land. Perhaps seven months later in the eighth month, one month after the civil and national new year Yom Kippur July 31, 1241 BC was Joshua's long day, August 24, 1241 BC, when Joshua conquered at Gibeon.

God knew the earth revolved around the sun and very likely Moses and Joshua knew this too. The year's end was the fall harvest, August/September at Jericho, which would be about the time of Joshua's long day and the battle of Gideon August 24, 1241 BC. The eight day feast of Tabernacles from the 15th day of the 7th lunar month to the 22nd day of the 7th lunar month: "on the first day a holy convocation and on the eighth day a holy convocation". My guess there would not need to have been a feast of tabernacles if the children of Israel obeyed, they would already be in the promised land conquering it. The feast of Tabernacles was the feast of Booths to commemorate the 40 years in the wilderness.

Leviticus 23:36 "Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein."

Dating Joshua's long day in Chinese records.

A lunar eclipse at sunset August 29, 1352 BC: "After seven days, at the time from jiwei (day 56) to gengshen (day 57), the moon was eclipsed." There were two inscriptions, perhaps of the same naturally occurring lunar eclipse. This is supposed to be the lunar eclipse of August 14, 1166 BC. "Those experts in modern astronomy can calculate the time and date of all early eclipses very accurately. Consider their results and information deduced from oracle bone inscriptions together, the year of that lunar eclipse has been identified as 1166 BC." - which is blatantly false.

"If that lunar eclipse record indeed refers to the eclipse on Aug. 14, 1166 BC, which is most likely correct, then Wu could not possibly begin the Zhou dynasty in 1122 BC, because there were eight kings between the Yin king of that eclipse and Wu. Clear inscriptional evidence shows that the rule of those eight kings were much longer than 44 years."

"As for the reigns of those 8 Yin kings, I have published my estimation in China. Based upon evidence in the inscriptions, it is my opinion that those reigns were at least 140 years long."
Xueshun Liu

This is because the King was Wuding who reigned up to 166 years before the fall of the Shang dynasty in 1174 BC.

King Wan's dream February 15, 1240 BC probably 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 six months after Joshua's long day when the sun stood still again for Joshua in the battle of Merom.

"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 sun miracle was a year earlier, also on day 13, a sun miracle on Friday May 9, 1206 BC, day 13 of the first lunar month of spring from April 26, 1206 BC. Thus the second event also on a day 13, at the lunar eclipse September 23, 1205 BC was too much for king Wan. Thus he made the statement the emperor should let him be emperor.

"In his 23rd year, he imprisoned the chief of the west in Yew-le."
The Chinese Classics III, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.110

Te-sin's first year was 1227 BC. Then his 23rd year was in this 1205 BC when king Wan was imprisoned, perhaps just after his declaration, "eclipse is untimely". Imprisonment would be likely upon king Wan's statement.

Then the chronology before Wending 1251 BC - 1236 BC must be Wu Ding in 1402 BC - 1343 BC if the chronology of the Bamboo Books is followed. The best test of this would be the following lunar eclipse: Oracle bone eclipse V.

"In Wending's 12th year, (1240 BC), phoenixes collected on mount K'e."
"Note: which was the first year of king Wan."
The Chinese Classics. p.138.

All the pieces fit. The battle of Merom may be king Wan's dream, February 15, 1240 BC when the sun returned one year after the battle of Jericho. Then Wending reigned 3 more years to 1235 BC. Then Te-yih reigned 9 years to 1226 BC. Then Te-sin reigned 52 years to emperor Wu 1174 BC.

King Wan's first year was supposed to be 64 years before the fall of the Shang dynasty. Then if the lunar date for emperor Wu was 1174 BC, then 66 years earlier than 1174 BC is 1240 BC.

"On the kea-tsze day (day 1), in the last month of autumn, a red bird came to Fung with a writing in its beak, which it put down at the door of Ch'ang."
The Chinese Classics III, The Bamboo Books, The Dynasty of Chow, p.143

The red bird must be the phoenix as recored on day 1 of 60, the new moon, November 16, 1206 BC.

A different sun miracle in 1194 BC was taken for the appointment of Heaven for 9 years for king Wan to his death in 1186 BC. 1193 BC was a 49th year jubile from 1241 BC:

In Te-sin's 32d year it was recorded:
"There was a conjunction of the five planets in Fang. A red crow lighted on the altar to the spirits in the land of Chow."
The Chinese Classics, The Bamboo Books, p.140

Red crow is literally "red bird". The red bird may be the red phoenix. Also it was recorded there was a five planet conjunction in Fang. One possible date is about November 13, 1194 BC. Then the planets would be near to the sun moving past Fang/Scorpio. However, this could equally be a sun miracle in spring like the sun miracle of king Wan when there was a conjunction of the five planets in Fang as the sun moved from Virgo to Pisces and the planets from Fang/Scorpio to Taurus. You can see the conjunction November 13, 1194 BC:





In May 8, 1174 BC:

"On day jiazi, 1, the sun and moon were like linked jade annuluses and the five planets were like linked pearls. In the morning twilight at dawn King Wu reached Muye on the outskirts of Shang and followed Heaven's command in punishing king Zhou of Shang. Hence the blades of the weapons were not bloodied and all under Heaven was pacified."
East Asian Archaeology, p.241.

This must be rather day one, March 11, lunar day 19, Friday, of the Passover week of unleavened bread, king Wu's confirmed year 1170 BC as emperor 37 days later the new moon April 17, 1170 BC. This is a rewrite of "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

When the sun moved around the earth the planets were often recorded as being in alignment, or in a "pit" as they were moved out of the way of the sun moving around the earth.

In Wu's 12th year, in the fourth month May 19, 1173 BC there was a new moon on day 53 Bingshen. Perhaps the total eclipse on day Bingshen day 53 March 4, 1250 BC was taken as an omen for day 53 thus on the first of the month the day of cycle 60 was recorded for a new emperor Wu as it had been a sign for the new emperor Wending. Perhaps the solar eclipse March 4, 1250 BC was taken as an omen of day 53. Also, the day Jacob entered Egypt was April 1, 2307 BC, day 53 of cycle 60 when there may have been a sun miracle. Thus day 53 could have been an omen for sun miracles.

In 1174 BC when Wu was in battle there was the appearance of a comet. However, comet Halley should have appeared in 1151 BC, in emperor Wu's 23rd year and last year: Nevertheless, counting forward from the earliest date of Halley in 1404 BC, 76 periods, to 1174 BC to emperor Wu's conquest.

"When King Wu of Zhou attacked King Zhou of Shang, a comet appeared and tendered its handle to Yin"
East Asian Archaeology, p.107.

This could be the time Wu was quoted in Lu Yang's battle when he swung his spear toward the sun, and the sun retreated three solar mansions. It was said that moving the spear in a certain way at a comet would bring victory.

There appear to be frequent sun miracles. Sun miracles in 155 BC, 149 BC and 142 BC are seven years apart. Thus there may have been sun miracles every seven years at times. These years were the seventh year in Israel, the year of release. And then at other times there were long periods without sun miracles:

"Three years later, 114 BC, the authorities concerned said that in originating reign periods it would be appropriate to name them after auspicious signs from Heaven. First in 140 BC, second for the comet in 134 BC, third for the one horned animal captured in 122 BC.

Perhaps sun miracles occurred on these dates. 140 BC was just after the sun miracle of 142 BC, 134 BC was 7 years later = a sabbath year, 122 BC was 100 years before the beginning of the last jubile in Israel. 116 BC, 3 years before 113 BC, was a 49 year jubile.

Psalm 74:9 "We see not our signs: there is no more any prophet: neither is there among us any that knoweth how long."

King Wan's dream with the five planet conjunction in Fang and the five planet conjunction in Fang in October at king Wan's bright appointment of Heaven 9 years before his death in 1186 BC may have driven the search:

"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."

A thousand years went by, and perhaps many similar sun miracles on similar dates, but no exact fit, and so the astronomers concluded no such magical event ever did take place.

Chinese Calendar

Perhaps the conjunction 9 years before king Wan died in 1186 BC was a sun miracle in spring of 1194 BC, the sun in Virgo and the planets in Fang in the western quadrant at sunset just before the sun moved to Pisces, like king Wan's dream.

"In his (emperor Te-sin's 1179 BC) 48th year, the E goat





(spirit like animal - exciting wonder) - was seen. Two suns appeared together." This was attributed to be 4 years before the conquest of China when king Wan had died and Woo became emperor over all of China. The E goat may be like the qilin the unicorn.

The comet or dragon often appeared when there was a sun miracle.

"After he burned the fish in sacrifice, and announced the event to Heaven. Lo! fire came down from heaven, and rested over Wang Uh, gradually floating away into a red bird, with a stalk of grain in its beak. The grain was in commemoration of the virtue of prince Tseih; the fire was an auspicious response from heaven to the burnt offering of the fish. Woo then went eastward and attacked Show,.."
The Chinese Classics III, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p. 144.

Another translation for the sun miracle in the ninth year of king Wu - 1177 BC:

"As the prince Fa had got to the middle of the stream in his boat, a white fish entered it. The king knelt down and took it up. He then went on the bank and burned it, in sacrifice to Heaven. All the dukes said 'This is auspicious!'. On the fifth day there was a ball of fire which descended from above, till it came to the king's house, and there dissolved into a crow. Its colour was red; its voice was calm and decided; five times it came bringing a stalk of grain.."

"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."
The Grand Scribe's Records, Volume 1, p.60.

The fire which came down may be a fire ball, a meteorite which often accompanied sun miracles. The red crow in the notes is likened to the "fire crane" the phoenix. The sound of the Phoenix, P'o, may have been why he was called the Hol in Hebrew, and Ho in Japan. Poh in Hebrew means "here". Jupiter was in the Quail Fire constellation in 1177 BC while the sun passed through it in September just as it is projecting orbits backwards in TheSky astonomy program. This 1177 BC is the 14th year from the 50 year jubile in 1190 BC. The 15th lunar day of September was the release, in the seventh year of release, You will see here sun miracles often occurred on the seventh year of release and of fallow ground in Israel.

"Bear commenced to sing Tcexa. Tcexa. I wish darkness to prevail always...Coyote sang, Po'xa, po'xa, I wish light to come in the morning."
Teit, the Shuswap, Coyote and Grisly Bear make the seasons, and Night and Day, p.738

Rain was associated with the Thunderbird, the phoenix. The First Nation people in BC, Canada, have a legend of Tsuami with an earthquake, whale and thunderbird. When God moved the sun the stress on the earth should cause earthquakes. Often God hid the bright thunderbird with dark thunder clouds. The Japanese called the phoenix the Ho. The Hebrews called the phoenix the Hol. Hol in Hebrew means swirling sand. Thus perhaps a double meaning, both referring to the phoenix. God promised to bless Abraham's seed as the sand in number. However, the Hol, the phoenix, is blessed in years without number. Thus the blessing may rather have been for years without number, eternal life for many. The rooster was associated with the phoenix, possibly because whenever the sun suddenly rose, the rooster cried.

"In the end Tsqtskna'sp (a climbing bird with red wings, tail and cheeks) became the sun."
Indian Myths & Legends from the North Pacific Coast of America, p.67





Depicted on totem pole on left above - The Pacific Northwest has a legend of a crow stealing the sun from out of a box. The Raven flew up the smoke hole with the box of day light.

From king Wan's dream: "A phoenix duck sang from mount K'e". The Chinese believed the phoenix had a beautiful song. The phoenix, the red bird, had a song, "P'o - P'o - P'o,"
The Grand Scribes Records, Volume 1, p.60.

In Hebrew this would sound like the word for here, here = Ho Ho. The Chinese named the fire bird constellation the Ho, the phoenix, perhaps because of the song of the phoenix.

In the legend of the rainmaker in Native North America, Ga'hga, called out "Ho, Ho, Ho" and it poured rain.
Coyote was going there, p.189

The Japanese called the phoenix the Ho. The Hebrews called the phoenix the Hol. A second meaning for Hol in Hebrew is swirling sand:

Job 29:18 "Then I said, I shall die in my nest, and I shall multiply my days as the sand."

Thus this word Hol must mean phoenix, because of the reference to his nest, rather than sand.

God promised to bless Abraham's seed as the sand in number. However, the Hol, the phoenix, is blessed in years without number. Thus the blessing may rather have been for eternal life for many. The rooster in China was associated with the phoenix possibly because whenever the sun rose the rooster cried.

Thus the sound of the phoenix, P'o, is the same around the world.

Many oral traditions name House of the Sun as the place where demi god Maui snared the sun so it would slow its daily passage and give Maui's mother more time to dry her cloth.

There is a legend in the Fiji Islands of a long night.





Apollo stopped the chariot of the sun to listen to the song of the phoenix, perhaps another account of Joshua's long day.

Josiah burned the chariots of the sun:

2 Kings 23:11 "And he took away the horses that the kings of Judah had given to the sun, at the entering in of the house of the LORD, by the chamber of Nathanmelech the chamberlain, which was in the suburbs, and burned the chariots of the sun with fire."





Perhaps king Wan's dream was February 15, 1240 BC

"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.

Visualizing Joshua's long day

Perhaps Joshua's long day was August 24, 1241 BC.

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

"to go down" "bow" also means to return. Thus the sun may have returned to the eastern horizon were it went down that day. Probably the sun stayed at the noon position for 24 hours.

Joshua 10:12a "Sun stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, moon upon Ajalon."

Gibeon was on the 31:50 Latitude and 35:10 Longitude and Joshua 10 miles west in the Ajalon valley.

Givat Zeev is built on this location and you can see the first quarter moon, or cloud, about where Joshua saw the moon that day. This was April 8, 2006 with the 10 day moon at 4PM. This is not to suggest the author of the photo at Givat Zeev supports this thesis. The moon was just rising there at noon August 24, 1241 BC on the six day moon. Joshua was facing south in "the going down of Beth-hor-on"

Joshua 10:11 "And it came to pass, as they fled from before the Israel, and were in the going down of Beth-hor-on, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died of the hail stones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword.
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."

Hail can form very rapidly and be pushed up, staying stationary while more particles are being blown into it, until becoming very large before falling. A Hail storm may last 8 hours. The hail, clouds, came from the west. Joshua would have been able to see the sun through the clouds and the moon in the east where there were no clouds yet. Often thick clouds appeared when there was a sun miracle to hide God's glory.

Hail was mentioned in connection with sun miracles in 155 BC in 149 BC and 148 BC in China. That hail pounded the ground 5 inches deep in January in China. There would have to be a massive thunderhead to generate hail that big, hail stones that could kill. Hail stones that big would begin immediately, no time to seek cover. "Hail can form as a result of strong updrafts in severe weather systems. A newly formed hailstone begins small but can grow as it meets a rising current of air and new drops of water cling to it." These updrafts may bring 90 km/h gusts of wind accompanied by lightning.

Job 38:22 "Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,
38:23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?
38:24 By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?"

Joshua commanded the sun and moon to stand still at the going down of Beth-hor-on. "House of caves - the pass of Bethoron was a difficult part of the road from Jerusalem to the sea. Between the Upper and Lower or Nether Bethoron the distance is 1 3/4 miles, and the descent 700 feet. Beyond Lower Bethoron, the ravine widens out into the valley of Aijalon."
Cambridge Bible, Bible Dictionary, Beth-horon.

The sun perhaps directly south and above on his right hand and the moon setting on his left in the valley of Ajalon. The sun should descend a little as it made a direct path around the earth. The sun was at the August inclination at the start August 24, 1241 BC. The sun rising in the west from the 11 PM position to the 12 PM position in 6 hours. Thus the sun would be at the February inclination at 12 PM when Joshua asked God to stop the sun in the sky. Then halfway, 12 more hours, the sun would be at the August inclination and near the middle of the sky, then 12 more hours and the sun would be at the February inclination before descending in the east. The sun passing through all the seasonal stages at noon from the Februay inclination, August inclination, and February inclination in 360° through 24 hours.

1 Samuel 23:19 "Then came up the Ziphites to Saul to Gibeah, saying, Doth not David hide himself with us in strong holds in the wood, in the hill of Hachilah, which is on the south of Jeshimon?"

The word for south is: on the right hand H3225 yamiyn. Thus if Joshua points with his right hand toward the south, he must point with his left hand toward the moon in the east.

A website using Google Earth depicts this battle in a steep descent going south a few miles west from Gibeon down from the plain opposite the town of Bethoron.

Ramah, Samuel's tomb:





To the left you can see the plateau just to the northwest where Joshua chased the Amorites to the descent, just out of view, and would be facing southwest in the going down of Bethoron. This all happened in the small area nearest Gibeon. In a barren field to the right of the road to Gibeon (between roads) is where Israeli archeaologists are digging up traces of Joshua's campaign that day. To the upper left is Timna-Heres of Joshua. This may also be mount Heres where the Amorites dwelt. Heres means the sun.

Looking north from Ramah, at Samuel's tomb, to Gibeon, a very small town, in the center just below.

The following pictures of Gibeon and Bethoron were taken September 16, 2010. This is about the time of year Jesus was born, September 13, 7 BC. If Joshua's long day was September 20, 1241 BC, in today's date it would be September 10, 2010.





Here you will see the going down of Bethoron. It was down this steep hill facing southwest at the end of the plateau that Joshua made his request to God. The modern town of Bethoron is on the upper left, in the west facing north. Then Joshua descended against Bethoron depicted here on the north of the ravine.

This is the sight of two battles for David in 1084 BC.

2 Samuel 23:4 "And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain."

These words of David appear to speak of the resurrection morning of Jesus.

Rain and sun miracle often go together, such as for Joshua's long day. The Chinese say the clouds covered the phoenix and the dragon because he was so bright when ever there was a sun miracle.

"In the Eastern Sea, there is to be found an animal which looks like an ox. Its appearance is green, and it has no horns. It has one foot only. When it moves into the water or out of it, it causes wind or rain. Its shining is similar to that of the sun and the moon. The noise it makes is like the thunder. Its name is K'uei. The great Huang-ti, having captured it, made a drum out of its skin."
M. Granet, Danses et legendes de la Chine ancienne, 1959, p. 509. - Hamlet's Mill, p.126.

Psalm 18:1 "To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, the servant of the LORD, who spake unto the LORD the words of this song in the day that the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said, I will love thee, O LORD, my strength."

Psalm 18:11 "He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.
18:12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire."

The hail in Joshua 10:11 when Joshua asked God to stop the sun in the sky is also typical to the Chinese legend of the dragon. The dragon was so bright that thick clouds and rain and hail hid him. In one case the hail penetrated the ground six inches.

2 Samuel 5:17 "But when the Philistines heard that they had anointed David king over Israel, all the Philistines came up to seek David; and David heard of it, and went down to the hold.
5:18 The Philistines also came and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim.
5:19 And David enquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I go up to the Philistines? wilt thou deliver them into mine hand? And the Lord said unto David, Go up: for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand.
5:20 And David came to Baalperazim, and David smote them there, and said, The Lord hath broken forth upon mine enemies before me, as the breach of waters. Therefore he called the name of that place Baalperazim.
5:21 And there they left their images, and David and his men burned them.
5:22 And the Philistines came up yet again, and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim.
5:23 And when David enquired of the Lord, he said, Thou shalt not go up; but fetch a compass behind them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees.
5:24 And let it be, when thou hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt bestir thyself: for then shall the Lord go out before thee, to smite the host of the Philistines.
5:25 And David did so, as the Lord had commanded him; and smote the Philistines from Geba until thou come to Gazer."

1 Chronicles 16:37 "So he left there before the ark of the covenant of the LORD Asaph and his brethren, to minister before the ark continually, as every day's work required:
16:38 And Obededom with their brethren, threescore and eight; Obededom also the son of Jeduthun and Hosah to be porters:
16:39 And Zadok the priest, and his brethren the priests, before the tabernacle of the LORD in the high place that was at Gibeon,"

"In his, Ch'aou's, 14th year, in the summer, in the 4th month, the regular stars were invisible.".."In his 19th year, in the spring, a comet appeared in the space Tsze-mei (including the stars around the north pole). The duke of Tse and the baron of Sin followed the king against Ts'oo. The heavens were dark and temptestuous. Pheasants and hares were terrified. The king's armies perished in the Han. The king died."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books

Ch'aou's 19th year should be 1068 BC. David was King from 1084 BC. Thus both sun miracles in 1073 BC and in 1068 BC be in David's reign.

Gibeon, the site of Joshua's battle and Long Day, the site of David's two battles in 1 Kings 5, is also the site of the battle by Judas Maccabee. Because the valley up Bethoron is very narrow, who takes the gap wins the battle. Thus the day/night of Hanukkah, that lasted 8 nights, on Saturday, December 12, 164 BC.







A Rabbi built a house here about 2001. He said the light changes during the day, and when it rains "we get rainbows!".

The valley opens up below. The Aijalon valley connecting south to the Elah valley of David and Goliath. Joshua must have been travelling south when he made his request to God that the sun and moon would stand still.

Psalm 44:3 "For they got not the land in possession with their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hast favour unto them."

This may refer to the right hand of Joshua commanding the sun. "the light of thy countenance" may refer to the brightness of God coming to their defense and moving the sun to stand still in the sky. The hail and rain may have passed over, as in Habakkuk 3:10 and Joshua 10:11. However, the hail may be connected to the sun miracle:

Jeremiah 10:12 "He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion.
10:13 When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures."

Perhaps Joshua was entering the valley of Ajalon when he commanded the sun to stand still on Gibeon and the moon to stand still to the east of the valley of Ajalon. Some suggest the moon was to the west of Ajalon. However, the command was for the moon to stay. If the moon was setting in the east, this must be a six day moon! Then 177 days later on February 15, 1240 BC was the six day moon of king Wan.

From Bethshemesh looking northeast. You can see the red tower:





From Ramot, above Bethoron, you can see the same red tower looking south.

Here you see Mount Tabor. Gideon in August 24, 1241 BC chased the midianites down the mountain, and Barak and Deborah chased Sisera down the mountain on February 15, 1240 BC.

Joshua 10:11 "And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died:

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

Isaiah 9:4 "For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian.
9:5 For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire."

Meteor showers may be the answer of God against the five kings Joshua chased, and the Midianites Gideon chased, and the Canaanites Barak and Deborah chased. Hot meteorites may cause a forest fire. Meteorites may be drawn into the path of earth as the sun revolved around the earth. Meteor showers occur mostly after 12 AM when earth is facing its space in front as it orbits the sun. Thus, meteor showers 12 hours after the sun first moved.

To explain, the sun rose in the west shortly after midnight. After midnight earth is facing the asteroids in its path as it moves 60,000 miles an hour around the sun. In early August we now have the Perseids shower. 'The earliest record of Perseid activity comes from the Chinese annals, where it is said that in 36 AD "more than 100 meteors flew thither in the morning."' In 28-33 AD there were several sun miracles that could cause meteor showers. Earth was in a reverse orbit since February 17, 1241 BC. So by August, half an orbit later, earth was in the normal Persied August position travelling in reverse. Thus, the Israelites would see meteorites streak across the sky before the sun rose in the west.

They may have witnessed meteorites guided by God strike the armies of the Amorites as they reached the top at Gibeon and made a surprise attack. Gideon may have observed the same shower 100 miles further north at the same time. Then a hail storm in both places with lightning.

Luke 10:18 "And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven."

Mount Tabor:






Hezekiah's Sign

II Kings 20

II Kings 20:5 "Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the LORD.
20:6 And I will add unto thy days fifteen years; and I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.
20:8 And Hezekiah said unto Isaiah, What shall be the sign that the LORD will heal me, and that I shall go up into the house of the LORD the third day?
20:9 And Isaiah said, This sign shalt thou have of the LORD, that the LORD will do the thing that he hath spoken: shall the shadow go forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees?
20:10 And Hezekiah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees: nay, but let the shadow return backward ten degrees.
20:11 And Isaiah the prophet cried unto the LORD: and he brought the shadow ten degrees backward, by which it had gone down in the dial of Ahaz."

2 Kings 20:8-10 in Hebrew MP3

According to the tract Sanhedrin 96a, the sun set 10 hours early on the death of Ahaz, so as not to allow time for Israel to mourn an evil king. In China there was a solar eclipse record for day 42, March 20, 718 BC, on a full moon = passover, when there was no solar eclipse on that exact year of 58 of cycle 60 and was not the solar eclipse of day 6 of cycle 60, February 22, 720 BC.

A year later would be when Ahaz died at the end of the month of Adar, March 20, 717 BC when the sun must return and produce Ahaz's sign at his death. Hezekiah's sign was then in 703 BC, 14 years later. There may have been an hour of darkness at noon Friday, March 29, 703 BC when Hezekiah prayed, and asked for a sign. Then after the sun set in the west that afternoon, the sun may have risen in the west.

Isaiah 7:11 "Ask thee a sign of the LORD thy God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above.
7:12 But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the LORD.
7:13 And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also? "

Probably Hezekiah's Sign was the sun retreating from the west to the east Saturday, March 30, 703 BC just as the sun may have retreated from the west to the east on the Sabbath day following Jesus' crucifixion. Thus the upper sun dial of Ahaz would be high enough to cast a shadow at sunset and sunrise.

On December 12, 164 BC the Chinese recorded the sun rose in the west to the meridian. There may be a pattern of the noon day sun in Israel retreating to the eastern horizon. When Isaiah was instructed by God to ask Hezekiah for a sign, that the sun suddenly set in the west or set in the east, it may have been noon in Israel. Then for the sun to move 90° from noon to the eastern horizon the sun would have to actually move 180° because earth rotates towards the east.

The ten steps = ten hours. Thus, the sun must move more than 360° probably 3 X 180° for earth to flow into or out of a reverse orbit.

Then on Sunday, March 31, 703 BC, the third day, the day of the Passover - the full moon, the sun may have brilliantly and suddenly rose in the east whereupon Hezekiah was healed. According to Jewish tradition, Hezekiah was healed on the first day of the Passover. Jesus' crucifixion was on April 3, 33 AD about the same time of the year. Thus the connection to the Resurrection Sunday when Jesus rose from the dead. Then also 15 years later to the day, Hezekiah may have died March 28, 688 BC on day sin mao = 28 of cycle 60, when stars fell like rain in China probably when the sun moved to the other side of the earth, asteroids becoming meteorites as they moved into earth's path. 688 BC is sin-mao also year 28 of cycle 60 from 2636 BC.

Asteroids orbit the sun the same way earth and the planets do. Move the sun to the other side of earth, and earth would hit asteroids head on in its path. Joshua 10:11 may concern hail stones. Nevertheless, there are many Chinese records of raining gold meteorites.

God promised Hezekiah 15 more years to the day.

"In his "King Huan" 16th year (703 BC from 718 BC), in the spring, K'euh-yuh extinguished Yih as the capital of Tsin."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.161

Thus the sun miracle of Hezekiah in the spring of 703 BC prompted emperor Huan to move the capital. The same thing happened in 1281 BC after the three days of darkness of Exodus the emperor took it as an omen to move the capital.

"In his first year, which was jin-yin (39th of cycle = BC 1158 + 120 years = 1278 BC.) he (Wu Yi) dwelt in Yin. The prince of Pin removed to Chow near mount K'e. In his 3rd year, the king removed from Yin to the north of the Ho."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.37

Wu Yi is given 35 years from 1147 BC to 1122 BC but should be 35 years from 1285 BC to 1250 BC. Thus, the sun miracles; three days darkness in Egypt, of Exodus that third year of Wu Yi, spring of 1281 BC, could have been seen as an Omen from Heaven, a sign to move the capital of China.

The Exodus was in the spring of 1281 BC just a few years before this 1278 BC.

Geneva Bible Notes:





"Let the sunne goe so many degrees backe that the houres may be so many the fewer in the Kings diall. Which diall was set in the rop (rope - Middle English not top) of the staires that Ahaz had made."

Early sun dials had a gnomon hanging from a rope to cast a shadow on a marked floor. The rope was elevated or lowered to tell the correct time depending upon the season. Perhaps these early translators imagined a stairway with rope for the gnomon like the Temple Steps depicted below. I saw a video of a sunset on the Temple Mount. The shadow from the local hill was sharp on the temple mount. Thus this shadow would extend across all ten steps of the Temple Steps and represent a 180° movement of the sun.





"In his (King Yin's) second year, 312 BC, in the country of Ts'e, the ground where they measured the length of the sun's shadow lengthened more than ten cubits, and was elevated a cubit."

James Legge stated "we have seen this before". That is the character for lengthened repeated means really lengthened or suddenly lengthened.
The Chinese Classics III, p.175

Before 323 BC: according to Josephus, Alexander the great had a dream of the High Priest pleading for Jerusalem and he did not destroy the Temple. Alexander the Great died in 323 BC and was part of the book of Daniel.

James Legge stated "we have seen this before". That is the character for lengthened repeated means really lengthened or suddenly lengthened.

Ch'in defeated Ch'u at Tan Yang in 312 BC.
The Grand Scribes Records, volume 7, p.149

"Ptolemy launched an invasion of Syria. With 18,000 infantry and 4,000 cavalry he arrived to Gaza in early 312 BC."
Wikipedia 312 BC

This battle of Ptolemy was very drawn out. The sun may have moved east and its shadow retreat for a long day. Battles in both Israel and China may have been fought on that day.

Tan Yang means spread out sun. King Hui of Ch'in died in 311 BC. Perhaps he was dethroned at the sign of this sun miracle when the sun returned one year later.

There was a 49th year jubile in 312 BC. From 1241 BC 19 X 49 years = 312 BC. Back from Jesus' sacrifice April 3, 33 AD = 32 + 18 + 49 + 49 + 49 + 49 + 49 = 312 BC.

Likewise, Hezekiah's Sign of the shadow of the sun returning ten steps = about 10 hours to the beginning dawn position, was in 703 BC, a 49th year jubile from 1241 BC.

Thus the shadow may have gone forward likewise as a sign on Ahaz's death about March 20, 717 BC.

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."

This may be like the hour of darkness at noon when Jesus was on the cross. Then after the sun would appear in the 3PM position on the sun dial because the sun had moved ahead 45° as described above. Thus "the shadows of the evening are stretched out."





Dead Sea Scroll 1QIsaa 11-44 complete, 1QIsaa 38:1-22, 1QIsab 38:12-22. (The same account is given in Isaiah 38 and in:

2 Chronicles 32:24 "In those days Hezekiah was sick to the death, and prayed unto the LORD: and he spake unto him, and he gave him a sign.





Some say that it would be easy for God to move the sun and planets around the earth. However, it was not to be taken for granted, nor was necessarily easy:

2 Chronicles 32:25 "But Hezekiah rendered not again according to the benefit done unto him; for his heart was lifted up: therefore there was wrath upon him, and upon Judah and Jerusalem."

2 Chronicles 32:31 "Howbeit in the business of the ambassadors of the princes of Babylon, who sent unto him to enquire of the wonder that was done in the land, God left him, to try him, that he might know all that was in his heart."

The sun may have retreated to past the dawn position and stood there well below the horizon for 3 X 24 hours. Or this was a long night when Hezekiah wept and prayed. So when Isaiah asked Hezekiah should the shadow of the sun go forward 10 steps or backward 10 steps this may mean the whole sky each time. The sun may have rose in the west for Hezekiah and set in the east at the end of the three days of darkness. Then the sun may have rose suddenly and brilliantly in the east whereupon Hezekiah was healed. Then Hezekiah's sign may be like the resurrection morning. Thus the sun moved east 7 X 180° and rose in the east on the third day. Thus Hezekiah's sign was similar to the three days darkness the disciples rested the sabbaton - a Friday night of seven nights and the sun descended from west to set in the east that Saturday.

Then the sun 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. Thus Hezekiah may have been healed by a sevenfold sun at sunrise after three days of darkness, a sign of the resurrection.

The sun's shadow upon the sundial retreating to the beginning, to the sunrise position in the east, being likened to God making Hezekiah pure as a child to live the day of his life for God.

Proverbs 4:18 "But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day"

Their beginning as the sunrise to the light of the noon day sun, the bright eternal long day of a saved eternity with Jesus.

II Chronicles 32:25 "But Hezekiah rendered not again according to the benefit done unto him; for his heart was lifted up: therefore there was wrath upon him, and upon Judah and Jerusalem."

Hezekiah's Sign must have been in the spring of 703 BC.

Isaiah 38:8 "Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down."





Dead Sea Scrolls text in italics: Isaiah 38:8 "See now, I will make the shadow on the steps by the upper dial of Ahaz, the setting sun, return backward ten steps from steps."

Perhaps the dial was high up for the sun to retreat to the beginning of the dial on the eastern horizon from the western horizon. Or this word may be upon (the first three letters are the same for upper and upon in Hebrew) perhaps suggesting God had forgiven Hezekiah's sins, reversed the disease, made him whole again and reversed the past and gave him the heart of a child. Nevertheless, an upper sundial may mark 10 steps between the rising sun and the setting sun. 12 hours may mark 180°, 10 hours may mark the shadow of the sun. Where the temple of Jerusalem was is a little lower than the western hill and the eastern hill casting a shadow on the dial of Ahaz.

The Great Isaiah Scroll: Isaiah 38:8 "Behold I will cause the shadow to return of the degrees which have gone down in the sundial upper Achaz by the sun backward ten degrees and the sun returned ten degrees in the degrees by which it had gone down."

Isaiah 38:13 "I reckoned till morning, that, as a lion, so will he break all my bones: from day even to night wilt thou make an end of me."

Perhaps that day the sun set in the east to start a new day, returning to the morning position. Then on the day after the next day, the third day, Hezekiah was healed and worshipped in the temple.

Isaiah 38:17 "Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption: for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back."

Isaiah 38:22 "Hezekiah also had said, What is the sign that I shall go up to the house of the LORD?"

These steps may be like on the sun dial of Ahaz. If you can picture the sun descend to the Mount of Olives in the east in the background, to the horizon, the shadow may mark ten steps. Likewise the sun descending to the west may mark ten of these steps. The wall behind, to the west was not there. Therefore these temple steps may have served as a sundial. Even there may have been a gnomon in the midst, the dial of Ahaz, to cast a shadow on these steps. These are known as the steps of ascents in the Psalms of Degrees. These are the teaching steps, where Jesus taught in the temple:





The 15 songs of degrees Psalm 120-134 were thought to have been written for the 15 years the LORD had extended to Hezekiah and were sung climbing the 10 steps ascending to the temple. The 10 psalms by Hezekiah may symbolize the 10 steps the sun retreated. Thirteen of these psalms are together in an ancient grouping in two Dead Sea Scrolls, the last two were found elsewhere. Psalms 120 121 123 125 126 128 129 130 132 and 134 were thought to have been written by Hezekiah. Psalms 122 124 131 133 are David's and Psalm 127 Solomon's. Psalm 130 may bear similarities to Hezekiah's prayer and the sun returning to the morning position.

Perhaps the Beautiful gate of the temple:





Hezekiah may have laid in his bed at the foot of these steps. These steps may have been the ten steps in Ahaz's sun dial. After the sun set in the east, the sun may have risen brilliantly in the east and Hezekiah exposed to the sun light may have found healing and gone up these steps into the temple.

Some have commented the book of Joshua was rewritten at the time of the siege of Sennacherib. The scene at the sun miracle of Hezekiah may be almost identical. The sun rising in the west a Friday night, perhaps standing still at noon for 24 hours, then setting in the east that Saturday. Then the sun rising suddenly and brilliantly Sunday morning whereupon Isaiah was healed on the third day.

Hezekiah was 38 when the sun retreated ten steps on Ahaz's sundial. He was 25 when he began to reign to his 14th year when he was about to die. Thus Hezekiah was 38 when Isaiah asked him if the shadow of the sun should move forward ten steps or backward ten steps on the upper sundial of Ahaz. This appears to be the age Jesus was when he was crucified in April 3, 33 AD. Jesus appears to have been born about Sunday, September 13, 7 BC. Thus 7 years less one year because there is no year zero, plus 32 years from September = 38 years and a half at April 3, 33 AD. Hezekiah would have been 34 years old in 707 BC. 700 years before Jesus' birth. This 34th year of Hezekiah would be like the 34th year of Jesus when he began to preach the Gospel in 29 AD.

Jotham reigned from his 25th year to his 41st year. Ahaz reigned from his 20th year to his 36th year. Isaac was the age if Christ, about 38, when Abraham went to offer him up because Sarah then died at age 127. Sarah was about 90, perhaps 89, when Isaac was born. The children of Israel were at Kadeshbarnea 38 years. The impotent man Jesus healed was 38 years in that case.

Genesis 25:17 "And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, an hundred and thirty and seven years: and he gave up the ghost and died; and was gathered unto his people."

Genesis 41:46 "And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt."

Joseph would be 38, eight years later when Jacob and his brethren came down into Egypt at the beginning of the second year of famine.

Exodus 6:16 "And these are the names of the sons of Levi according to their generations; Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari: and the years of the life of Levi were an hundred thirty and seven years."

Levi lived 137 years. 37 years beyond 100. Perhaps this 37 more years was meant to be a type of Christ. Jesus may have lived 38 years.

Levi must have been born 10 years earlier in 2355 BC. Then Levi must have died 2217 BC, 17 years after Joseph died in 2235 BC.

Numbers 4:47 "From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old, every one that came to do the service of the ministry, and the service of the burden in the tabernacle of the congregation,"

Deuteronomy 2:14 "And the space in which we came from Kadeshbarnea, until we were come over the brook Zered, was thirty and eight years; until all the generation of the men of war were wasted out from among the host, as the LORD sware unto them."

Thus the 38 years of Jesus' life and crucifixion and resurrection was very like the conquest of Palestine. Even the five kings Joshua hung on trees was like Jesus' crucifixion and victory over the grave.

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.
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."

1 Kings 2:11 "And the days that David reigned over Israel were forty years: seven years reigned he in Hebron, and thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem."

David lived to 70 years. Then he was 37 when he became king over all of Israel.

2 Kings 13:10 "In the thirty and seventh year of Joash king of Judah began Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz to reign over Israel in Samaria, and reigned sixteen years."

2 Kings 15:8 "In the thirty and eighth year of Azariah king of Judah did Zachariah the son of Jeroboam reign over Israel in Samaria six months."

2 Kings 16:2 "Twenty years old was Ahaz when he began to reign, and reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem, and did not that which was right in the sight of the LORD his God, like David his father."

1 Chronicles 23:3 "Now the Levites were numbered from the age of thirty years and upward: and their number by their polls, man by man, was thirty and eight thousand."

2 Chronicles 15:10 "So they gathered themselves together at Jerusalem in the third month, in the fifteenth year of the reign of Asa."

Solomon: 1044 BC - 1004 BC, Rehoboam, 1004 BC - 987 BC, Abijah 987 BC - 983 BC, Asa 983 BC - 942 BC. Asa's 15th year = 968 BC. 968 BC - Jesus' crucifixion, - 33 AD = 1000 years.

2 Chronicles 16:1 "In the six and thirtieth year of the reign of Asa Baasha king of Israel came up against Judah, and built Ramah, to the intent that he might let none go out or come in to Asa king of Judah.
16:2 Then Asa brought out silver and gold out of the treasures of the house of the LORD and of the king's house, and sent to Benhadad king of Syria, that dwelt at Damascus, saying,
16:3 There is a league between me and thee, as there was between my father and thy father: behold, I have sent thee silver and gold; go, break thy league with Baasha king of Israel, that he may depart from me."

Thus, there may be sun miracles in 968 BC and 948 BC. This 36th year of Asa = 948 BC = the 49th year jubile from Joshua in 1241 BC. Thus both Asa's 15th year = 968 BC = 1000 years to Jesus' crucifixion and his 36th year = the 49th year of jubile to Jesus' crucifixion in April 3, 33 AD.

Shoshenq I wrongly dated from 925 BC. The Egyptian pharaohs should be 76 years further back. Such as pharaoh Merneptah should be his death in 1281 BC, not 1205 BC, the same 76 years. Lunar dates match every 19 years. 19 X 4 = 76 years. Likewise, lunar dates for Shoshenq I match 76 years further back. Solomon died in 1004 BC. Shoshenq I invaded Israel in Rehoboam's 5th year = 1000 BC. 925 BC back 76 years = 1000 BC. Likewise, Armenian sothis dates if moved back 76 years match many dates of 3907 BC, 3607 BC, 3307 BC, 4568 BC, 5367 BC that point to Jesus' birth in 7 BC and his crucifixion in 33 AD.

Shoshenq I's successful campaign in Canaan is dated to 925 BC. 76 years further back is 1001 BC = Rehoboam's fifth year from Solomon's death in 1004 BC.

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:
14:26 And he took away the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king's house; he even took away all: and he took away all the shields of gold which Solomon had made."

2 Peter 3:8 "But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day."

2 Chronicles 16:12 "And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign was diseased in his feet, until his disease was exceeding great: yet in his disease he sought not to the LORD, but to the physicians."

Emperor Muh began his reign in the spring of 968 BC = 60 years of reign to 907 BC. 19 years earlier emperor Ch'aou was to have begun his reign in 987 BC = the same year Rehoboam died. In Ch'aou's 19th year = 968 BC there was a sun miracle of darkness and he died. In Ch'aou's 14th year, perhaps 973 BC, there was a sun miracle of twilight = the regular stars did not appear. Asa had peace 10 years from 983 BC to 973 BC. Thus there may have been a sun miracle in Ch'aou's first year 987 BC = Rehoboam's last year. The sun miracle in 987 BC taken as an omen to the Hebrews to change their King and to the Chinese to change their Emperor.

Ch'aou either reigned from 1088 BC to 1068 BC and an 100 year gap to 968 BC. Or Ch'aou reigned from 987 BC to 968 BC, and an 100 year gap from 1088 BC to 988 BC.

2 Chronicles 21:20 "Thirty and two years old was he when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem eight years, and departed without being desired. Howbeit they buried him in the city of David, but not in the sepulchres of the kings."

2 Chronicles 27:1 "Jotham was twenty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Jerushah, the daughter of Zadok."

Thus there is plenty of support in Old Testament times for Jesus living 38 years.

The Chinese record the sun reversing from sunset to the meridian:

Huai-nan tzu VI iv

See the Chinese on left (top to bottom, right to left): Huai-nan tzu who lived in 200 BC, writes about Han's rise to power. This event must have occurred sometime between 515 BC and 450 BC. Probably this was Yuang and either 474 BC when he became emperor, or 467 BC when he died. The Milky Way was not visible in China in 496 BC. Perhaps the sun stood still at noon one day in 496 BC and in the long twilight the milky way was not visible in China. Lu Yang = Luh-ch'ing, was the grandson of Chu Ping Wang who died in 515 BC - the common date for the end of the captivity to Israel. Nevertheless, China must have seen the same thing, perhaps in 703 BC, when the sun retreated to the dawn for Hezekiah and to the meridian in China. The Duke of Lu Yang in 465 BC quoted King Wu in 1174 BC when he conquered China.

The connection to the battle of Wu at comet Halley's return in 1174 BC.

And the sun miracle that day may also be for comet Halley in 465 BC and the sun miracle of Lu Yang, Luh Ching. This being the same Chow dynasty. King Wu began his campaign on January 27, 1174 BC and completed his conquest of China in the fourth month in May. The sun miracle when emperor Wu shook his spear at a comet and at the sun may have been a similar sun miracle when Lu Yang shook his spear at comet Halley in 466 BC and the setting sun reversed three stalls. Saul also was chosen king in May, perhaps 1124 BC.

The 12th year of King Kang should be 1122 BC. Jesus stayed behind to inquire of the doctors of the law in Jerusalem when he was 12. From 1174 - 6 years (1168 BC = 1200 years to Jesus' crucifixion) - 35 years - 11 years to King Kang's 12th year 1122 BC.

In 1124 BC, the 10th year of King Kang = the first year of King Saul, the sixth month, day 7 of cycle 60 = new moon, may equal this wheat harvest, May 15, 1124 BC or July 14, 1124. However the new moon is on the third day from day 7 of cycle 60 = day 9 of cycle 60 = May 18, 1124 BC or July 16, 1124 BC. Thus the significance of this day in May or July during wheat harvest may be a sun miracle on this day:

1 Samuel 11:14 "Then said Samuel to the people, Come, and let us go to Gilgal, and renew the kingdom there.
11:15 And all the people went to Gilgal; and there they made Saul king before the LORD in Gilgal; and there they sacrificed sacrifices of peace offerings before the LORD; and there Saul and all the men of Israel rejoiced greatly."

Samuel 12:16 "Now therefore stand and see this great thing, which the LORD will do before your eyes.
12:17 Is it not wheat harvest to day? I will call unto the LORD, and he shall send thunder and rain; that ye may perceive and see that your wickedness is great, which ye have done in the sight of the LORD, in asking you a king.
12:18 So Samuel called unto the LORD; and the LORD sent thunder and rain that day: and all the people greatly feared the LORD and Samuel."

This record for the 12th year of King Kang should be in 1122 BC:

"In his 12th year, in the summer, in the sixth month, on the jin-shin (9th of cycle 60) day, the king went to Fung and gave his Charge to the duke of Peih. In the autumn duke E of Maou died."
The Chinese classics III, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.148

King Kang's 26th year may be in 1108 BC = 1100 years to Jesus' birth in 7 BC. King Ching's first year should be 1168 BC. 1168 BC + 33 AD = 1200 years to Jesus's sacrifice. There is no year zero. Jesus' birth in 7 BC day 17 of the seventh month, September 12, 7 BC; King Kang died in his 26th year, on the 56th day of cycle, the 17th day of the seventh month, October 7, 1108 BC = 1101 years before Jesus' birth.

King Kang's 12th year may be in 1122 BC. The Peih was a round piece of jade with a hole in the middle that the emperor dropped in the river when there was a sun miracle.

The day of Atonement, Yom Kippur, September 4, 1122 BC is 1150 years exactly, even 50's, to Jesus speaking from Isaiah 61 and fulfilling the 50th year jubile, the year of release - to preach the acceptable year of the Lord to begin his ministry, the day of Atonement, August/September, 29 AD.

This may be day 9 of cycle 60, September 4, 1122 BC, the 9th to 10th day of the Hebrew lunar month seven, the day of Atonement which was a day of fasting, Yom Kippur. Thus this record of Yom Kippur in the second year of Saul.

For China to record this day there must have been a sun miracle. Either a long day or a short day. A yoke of oxen will plough an acre in one day. So, perhaps the day was half as long thus "Saul said, Let us go down after the Philistines by night". This 10th day of the lunar month, Yom Kippur, would mean the moon would rise in the east before sunset. Thus, Saul could have lots of moonlight for several more hours to battle the Philistines.

Then also, the day the previous emperor Ching died in 1133 BC, in the fourth month, on day 2 of cycle 60, would be the new moon, the third day of the week, April 28, 1133 BC. This would be nine years before king Saul, during the period of Judges.

1 Samuel 13:1 "Saul reigned one year; and when he had reigned two years over Israel,"

1 Samuel 14:14 "And that first slaughter, which Jonathan and his armourbearer made, was about twenty men, within as it were an half acre of land, which a yoke of oxen might plow.
14:15 And there was trembling in the host, in the field, and among all the people: the garrison, and the spoilers, they also trembled, and the earth quaked: so it was a very great trembling."

The earth often shook when God moved the sun around the earth. The Chinese would see the same sun that same day of the fasting of Saul September 4, 1122 BC.

1 Samuel 14:18 "And Saul said unto Ahiah, Bring hither the ark of God. For the ark of God was at that time with the children of Israel.
14:19 And it came to pass, while Saul talked unto the priest, that the noise that was in the host of the Philistines went on and increased: and Saul said unto the priest, Withdraw thine hand.
14:20 And Saul and all the people that were with him assembled themselves, and they came to the battle: and, behold, every man's sword was against his fellow, and there was a very great discomfiture.
14:21 Moreover the Hebrews that were with the Philistines before that time, which went up with them into the camp from the country round about, even they also turned to be with the Israelites that were with Saul and Jonathan.
14:22 Likewise all the men of Israel which had hid themselves in mount Ephraim, when they heard that the Philistines fled, even they also followed hard after them in the battle.
14:23 So the LORD saved Israel that day: and the battle passed over unto Bethaven.
14:24 And the men of Israel were distressed that day: for Saul had adjured the people, saying, Cursed be the man that eateth any food until evening, that I may be avenged on mine enemies. So none of the people tasted any food."

1 Samuel 14:31 "And they smote the Philistines that day from Michmash to Aijalon: and the people were very faint.
14:32 And the people flew upon the spoil, and took sheep, and oxen, and calves, and slew them on the ground: and the people did eat them with the blood.
14:33 Then they told Saul, saying, Behold, the people sin against the LORD, in that they eat with the blood. And he said, Ye have transgressed: roll a great stone unto me this day.
14:34 And Saul said, Disperse yourselves among the people, and say unto them, Bring me hither every man his ox, and every man his sheep, and slay them here, and eat; and sin not against the LORD in eating with the blood. And all the people brought every man his ox with him that night, and slew them there.
14:35 And Saul built an altar unto the LORD: the same was the first altar that he built unto the LORD.
14:36 And Saul said, Let us go down after the Philistines by night, and spoil them until the morning light, and let us not leave a man of them. And they said, Do whatsoever seemeth good unto thee. Then said the priest, Let us draw near hither unto God.
14:37 And Saul asked counsel of God, Shall I go down after the Philistines? wilt thou deliver them into the hand of Israel? But he answered him not that day."

Isaiah 28:21 "For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act."

This prophesy of Isaiah about 700 BC, of a sun miracle in Gibeon and Ajalon, was from the sun miracle of David when he became king of Israel in 2 Samuel 5 in 1077 BC when David would be 38 years = the age of Jesus was accused of being the King of the Jews, when he went to the cross. Then also, of Joshua's long day in Gibeon and Ajalon. Then also probably a sun miracle was noted in China, September 5, 1122 BC in this second year of king Saul. Then also, there may be a sun miracle when David slew Goliath near the Ajalon valley. Then also, there would be a sun miracle of Hanukkah in this same valley of Ajalon December 12, 164 BC.

The day of the fast was the day of Atonement, which in 1122 BC should be September 4, 1122 BC day 9 of cycle 60, the sixth Chinese month from spring = the seventh Hebrew month from spring. Thus there may have been a sun miracle when Jonathan won the battle for Israel. Saul called for the ark which the High Priest could only come near on this day of Atonement.

Leviticus 23:26 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
23:27 Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
23:28 And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God.
23:29 For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people.
23:30 And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people.
23:31 Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
23:32 It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath."

1 Samuel 14:31 "And they smote the Philistines that day from Michmash to Aijalon: and the people were very faint."

Thus there may have been a sun miracle that day in Ajalon, the sun standing still at noon as it did for Joshua as Israel fought in the same place and again had victory.

Thus Saul's first year should be in 1124 BC forty years to 1184 BC when David became king. Thus after two years is this 1122 BC. Then a sun miracle on Yom Kippur and Israel got the victory. King Ching died on day 2 of cycle 60, which may be the new moon on April 28, 1133 BC. Thus the 12th year of king Kang is this 1122 BC.

Then the battle of David with the Philistines when he became King of all Israel in 2 Samuel 5 in Gibeon, the same place as Joshua's long day, could be almost identical in the hail and a long day of Joshua to get the victory. See Isaiah 28:21.

Then there must have been a sun miracle in King Muh's first year in 1068 BC, the sudden darkness when King Ch'aou died, and a sun miracle 100 years previous from Wu's last year in 1168 BC. Thus the Chinese must have changed emperors when there was an omen of a sun miracle. 1168 BC is 1200 years before Jesus was crucified, 1068 BC is 1100 years before Jesus was crucified in 33 AD. In 769 BC King P'ing became emperor and moved the palace. P'ing may have been made emperor because of a sun miracle that the Chinese took as an omen from heaven to depose their king Yew and to move the capital. This 769 BC is 800 years before Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD. Thus a sun miracle that year would have pointed to Jesus' crucifixion.

"In the 11th year, (the year king Yew died 769 BC), in spring, in the first month, the sun and moon had haloes...The people of Shin, of Tsang, and the hordes of the K'euen, entered Tsung-chow, and murdered the king and duke Hwan of Ch'ing. The chief of the K'euen killed the king's son, Pih-fuh, and took Paou-sze as his captive." Note. There were two kings at the same time.
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books. p.158

The Chinese often murdered their emperors when there was a sun miracle. Every 100 years from 968 BC to 368 BC, and 1168 BC, there was a change in emperor, all pointing to Jesus' sacrifice in even hundreds to April 3, 33 AD.

This year 769 BC to 768 BC, perhaps a year of a reverse orbit, was 800 years before Jesus' crucifixion in spring, 33 AD. Thus the sun and moon were a sign of Jesus' sacrifice for the sins of the whole world yet to come. Some records of sun miracles describe different colours and haloes to the sun and moon as they stood still in the sky.

Uzziah reigned as king of Judah 52 years from 802 BC to 749 BC. The earth quake in Zechariah 14 may be connected with the sun miracle in Zechariah 14 when Uzziah was king. Moving the sun around the earth could cause an earth quake.

There is no year zero. Working back from King Kung's first year in 907 BC, 59 years of King Muh is 969 BC. Working forward from Wu's last year to King Muh's first year 100 years, is 1068 BC. Both years end in X68 BC. X68 BC + 33 AD, there is no year zero, when Jesus was crucified equal even 100's

The notes state: "When king Wu made and end of Yin, the year was in kang-yin. Twenty-four years after, in the year kea-yin, the vases were finally placed in the city of Lo. From that time to King Yew, were 257 years; - giving us in all 281 years. From sin-maou, the 1st year of Wu, to kang-woo, the last year of Yew, were 292 years."

"two kings at the same time" Probably not. Year kang-yin = 27 = 1168 BC = 1200 years to Jesus' sacrifice. From 1168 BC to 768 BC = 400 years. 24 years after 1168 BC = 1144 BC. 1144 BC - 120 - 257 = 768 BC. This 120 years fills the gap exactly to the sexigismal 60 base years from 2636 BC. Dual kings, probably not. Two dual kings that served 60 years, adds to 120 years, would fill this gap. Sun miracles on 1168 BC and 768 BC point to Jesus' sacrifice in even 100's in 33 AD.

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 to his duty; - and the consequence was that the princes began to lose their virtue"

King E died in 869 BC. 281 years from Ching's 18th year 1150 BC is this 869 BC. A sun miracle in 868 BC would be 900 years to Jesus' sacrifice April 3, 33 AD.

From Wu's first year in 1174 BC to year kea-yin 51 of cycle 60 = 907 BC = 267 years. Thus from the victory of King Wu in sin-maou 1168 BC to King Kung in kea-yin 907 BC, rather than to King Yew in 780 BC, are there 261 years. This is about 257 years.

King Ching became king in the first month of spring in 1169 BC about the time of the Passover. King Muh became king also in the first month of spring perhaps in 1069 BC, also the time of the Passover. Many Chinese emperors became King in the first month of spring. Perhaps there were sun miracles at the time of the Passover to point people to the coming sacrifice of Jesus at the Passover, April 3, 33 AD.

There are several Chinese emperors who began their reign in a year ending in something 68 BC. Perhaps a new emperor was appointed when there was a sun miracle to point people to Jesus' sacrifice in spring, April 3, 33 AD. In 570 BC King Ling became emperor. In 467 BC King Ching-Ting became emperor. In 367 BC King Heen became emperor. In 168 BC the temple at Jerusalem was made an abomination by the Greeks and there were sun miracles recorded in China. All these dates are 500, 400, 300 and 200 years before Jesus' sacrifice April 3, 33 AD. Also in 68 BC Hycrannus II became king of Jerusalem.

In 906 BC King E became emperor of China, 900 years before Jesus' birth in 7 BC. Thus a sun miracle in 907 BC would be taken as an omen by the Chinese to change emperors. Many early Chinese dates of sun miracles point to the coming of Christ.

The beginnings of the reigns of these Chinese emperors are even 100's to Jesus' birth in 7 BC, or even 100's, X68, to Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD (no year zero)

Thus sun miracles to mark Jesus' coming to earth may have been taken as a omen for the Chinese to change emperors.

Huangdi's 50th year sun miracle 2607 BC 17th day of 7th month, October 18, 2607 BC, Yu became emperor of China in spring 2168 BC, Chung-K'ang's 5th year sun miracle 2068 BC, Manu 1907 BC, Kwei's first year 1707 BC, Kung 907 BC, Heaou 868 BC, P'ing 768 BC, Ting 605 BC, Ching-Ting 468 BC, Heen 368 BC, Liu Bang 207 BC.

Note to Yu: "His mother was called Sew-ke. She saw a falling star, which went through the constellation Maou (Taurus), and in her dream her thoughts were moved till she became pregnant, after which she swallowed a spirit's pearl. Her back opened in due time, and she gave birth to Yu in Shih-new. He had a tiger nose and a large mouth. His ears had three orifices. His head bor the resemblance of the stars Kow (Sagittarius) and K'een. On his breast seemed a figure in gem of the Great Bear, and in the lines of his feet he seemed to tread on the character Z; hence he was called Wanming..

...When the fortunes of Hea were about to rise, all vegetation was luxuriant, green dragons lay in the borders, and the spirit of Chuh-yung descended in mount Ts'ung; - Shun resigned and Yu ascended the throne. The Lo produced the the tortoise Book called 'The great Plan.' When three years of mourning were over, he made his capital in Yang-shing."

"In his 1st year, which was jin-tsze (49 of cycle 60 = 2168 BC), when he came to the throne, he dwelt in K'e. He published the seasons of Hea throughout the regions and States."

The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, The Dynasty of Hea, p.117

"He published the seasons of Hea" points to Yaou who also published the seasons in his first year = 2315 BC = a sun miracle April 1, 2315 BC = 20 days before the spring equinox April 21, 2315 BC. The sun moving 180° April 1, 2315 BC = 1400 years of forward precession. In 26,000 years earth pivots 360° in precession. Thus the four stars He and Ho determined marked the four seasons in the reverse orbit. Like wise the sun moved 180° upon the omen Yu was made emperor like Yaou was, and Yu determined the seasons = necessary to know for planting. Thus there must be a sun miracle in 2168 BC pointing to Jesus' sacrifice 2200 years later April 3, 33 AD.

This may be the time the sun reversed when King Wu shook his spear at the setting sun:

"In his 12th year, (first year of Emperor Wu) 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,"
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p44.

Jesus stayed behind to inquire of the doctors of the law in Jerusalem when he was 12.

1174 BC "When King Wu conquered King Zou of Shang, a broom star appeared and tendered its handle to Yin."
Huainanzi ch. 15

An example of weilding a spear:

632 BC "When Duke Wen of Jin was about to battle King Cheng of Chu at Chengpu, a broom star emerged in the astronomical state of Chu. Chu wielded its handle, on account of which Jiu Fan was asked about it. He responded: 'In doing battle in conjunction with a broom star, the one who moves contrary to it gains the victory'"
Lun heng ch. 5

The orbit of Halley's Comet is about 77 years. Halley's Comet is the broom star. Then back from this 632 BC in 77 year orbits is 1174 BC. 1174 BC - 632 BC = 542 years. 7 X 77 years = 539 years.

Thus perhaps the sun rose in the west and set in the east, then Wu shook his spear at the sun, then the sun brilliantly rose in the east. This may be the same fourth month that Wu returned and sacrificed in the temple. From the sun miracle in 1194 BC 9 years to king Wan's death. Then 11 years to Wu's 12th year, 1174 BC when Wu became emperor.

The fifth day of the lunar month is Pentecost. The fiftieth day from day 15 is Hebrew lunar day 5, 50 - pentecost. Thus possibly this might be the day of Pentecost in 1174 BC. In the Chinese Classics it says that Wu received the bright appointment of heaven in the fourth month. This may be day 1 of cycle 60 March 11, 1170 BC. Then were assembled the vassals on day 37 of 60 which this new moon April 17, 1170 BC. The character sun/moon together signifies the new moon.

In China while Wu was waging war the sun reversed also and Wu uttered these words which became famous in China. There is a possibility the sun miracle of 1174 BC may be the context of king Wu when he "grasps a golden yue". In 1174 BC king Wu declined to fight at the sight of the sun miracle. Then again when this duke of Lu Yang = Luh-ch'ing, waged war the sun may have reversed also prompting him to repeat the words of his ancestor king Wu. Esther was made queen and wife to Xerxes in the tenth month of Tabet 470 BC.

"In his 10th year, luh-ch'ing, the viscount of Yu-yuen died,"
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.167.

This 10th year from 467 BC was 458 BC. Luh-ch'ing may be Lu Yang. Lu Yang moved his spear in battle, where he may have died, and the sun rose in the west and passed through three solar mansions. The 70 weeks of years of Daniel was from the building of Jerusalem in 458 BC to Jesus' sacrifice April 3, 33 AD.

Daniel 9:24 "Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy."

Thus the sun miracle of Lu Yang, if at Luh-ch'ing's death in 458 BC, may have been a sun miracle marking the beginning of the 490 years to Jesus' crucifixion.

Perhaps Luh-ch'ing became duke in 470 BC, the sun miracle that day in autumn may see the sun at the noon position retreat to the dawn position in Israel = the sun setting in the west in China would then rise in the west to the noon position in China. Lu Yang = Luh-ch'ing, the same Chinese character for his name, in 464 BC = the same 12th year of Xerxes that the Jews had victory on Adar 13 in the book of Esther.

Jesus stayed behind to inquire of the doctors of the law in Jerusalem when he was 12.

Esther 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."

There may have been a sun miracle in Xerxes third year. Thus the 180 days from the fall equinox to the spring equinox. Thus the Chinese would observe the sun miracle by removing their emperor. Thus perhaps a sun miracle in 475 BC, in Xerxes' third year from 477 BC.

Yuang became emperor in 474 BC and died in 467 BC. Then Luh-ch'ing becane duke in King Ching-Ting's 4th year, the autumn or winter, 11th month, of 464 BC.

There was another time when the king wielded a spear, this time against a comet:
"When Duke Wen of Jin was about to battle King Cheng of Chu at Chengpu, a broom star emerged in the astrological space of the state of Chu. Chu wielded its handle, on account of which Jiu Fan was asked about it. He responded: 'In doing battle in conjunction with a broom star, the one who moves contrary to it gains the victory.'"
East Asian Archaeology, p.111. - 632 BC.

This was during the time Josiah 644 BC - 614 BC, was king of Judah, his 12th year = 632 BC, who purged Judah from idols. The broom star may rather be the dragon, the glory of God.

Jesus stayed behind to inquire of the doctors of the law in Jerusalem when he was 12.

Then in 139 BC this was written, as you see on the left, for the emperor of China now the emperor of the Han dynasty:

"King Wu's left hand grasps a golden yue (ancient Chinese weapon with a hook), his right holds a white banner, humbly glaring and says: "No one in the world would dare to harm me!" Thereupon a breeze aids the wave to the movement. Lu Yang duke and Han relations difficult war fierce sun sunset apply spear and swang sun for Lu Yang reverse three stall. They [King Wu and the Duke of Lu-yang] had kept their nature intact, preserved their genuineness and avoided injury to their person. When they met with crisis and were pressed with difficulties, their essence merged with Heaven as if they had not yet begun to emerge from their origin. How could they not succeed then, in all their undertakings!"

"Long ago, the Yellow Emperor, (Huangdi 2698 BC), governed all under Heaven with tender strength. Mount Taishan bowed out to the side so the sun and moon Emperor was able to govern and make the laws for people's livelihood. The Emperor regulated the Qi of Yin and Yang, apportioned the length of the seasons and rectified the numbers of the calendar, separated men and women and distinguished male and female animals, made clear the distinction between those above and those below and classified the ranks of noble and common. He kept the strong from crushing the weak and the many from oppressing the few. The people fulfilled their life-span and did not meet with untimely death. Harvests ripened at the propitious time and were not damaged by any calamity. The Hundred Officers were upright and devoid of self interest.

Those above and those below were harmonious and not fault-finding. Laws and orders were clear and their was no confusion. Ministers were public-minded and not partial. Land tillers did not transgress balks and fishermen did not wrangle over deep-water channels. People did not appropriate what had been left along the road and the prices were not fixed in advance in the market-place. The gates of the inner and outer city walls were left unlocked and manors were free from thieves and robbers. Rustic folks mutually yielded goods to each other and dogs and pigs spat out grain and millet on the roadside. All were devoid of aggressive hearts.

Thereupon, sun and moon shone with pure brilliancy and stars and constellations did not leave their courses. Wind and rain came a seasonable times and the five grains grew to maturity. Tigers and leopards did not bite recklessly and birds of prey did not strike at random. Male and female Phoenixes swirled over the court-yard and the Unicorn wandered in the countryside. The Green Dragon took flight to where the yellow bend becomes Northern black. Everyone in the country shared each others duties."
Translation by Tom Jackson of West Kelowna.

If the sun rising in the west for Lu Yang was Purim of Esther, the 13th, 14th, and 15th lunar day of the 12th month of Adar, the moon would be full in its "brilliancy".

Lu Yang must be Luh-ch'ing:

"In his 4th year, in the 11th month, Kow-ts'een, (Sagittarius), the viscount of Yu-yueh, known as Tan-chih, died, and was succeeded by his son, Luh-ch'ing."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.167.

"Lu Yang duke and Han relations difficult war fierce sun sunset apply spear and swang sun for Lu Yang reverse three stall"

Read the Chinese explanation word for word here: "Lu Yang was the head of a county of Chu. He was the grandson of Chu Ping Wang and son of Si Ma Zi Qi. He was the person whom Guo Yu (title of a historical text) called Lu Yang Wen Zi. Chu overstepped titles and (its ruler) called themselves king and the heads of counties called themselves as Duke. Therefore, the text called Lu Yang as Duke. Nowadays Nan Yang is the place Lu Yang. Han means (he) fought face to face and felt happy. Hui Ri means (he) ordered (the sun) to return and (the sun) retreat three She. She means successive mansions."

Charles Le Blanc translated Ci Xiu (?) as "successive solar (or celestial) mansions".

"sun began to set, He (the Duke) raised his spear and waived at the sun, and the sun reverted three mansions on his behalf."

Lu Yang did not command the sun, he observed the sun while God moved it, probably having something to do with Israel. Nan Yang means south sun, Lu Yang means dull sun, perhaps Lu Yang then became the new name. The character is related to the unicorn. Thus perhaps one of the four beasts before God's throne was seen with the sun with its horn.

Lu Yang was compared to Emperor Wu. Thus there may have been a similar sun miracle for Wu as for Lu Yang, the setting sun rising in the east to give more daylight to get the victory. In 1174 BC Wu was in battle with the Shang at Muh, Wu motioned to the comet with his spear, perhaps the sun rose in the west like it did for Lu Yang.

The first year of Ching-Ying was in 467 BC or 468 BC - the last year of Yuang. The fourth year of Ching Ying, eleventh month was the first year of Lu Yang = Luh-ch'ing when he became duke. The first year of Xerxes may be 477 BC. And thus Esther's deliverance for the Jews on the thirteenth day of Adar, the 12th month, in the 12th year of Xerxes may be 465 BC. Then in 465/466 BC Luh-ch'ing succeeded Tan'chih in the 11th month, the sun in Sagittarius = Kow T'een in December, fourth year from 467 BC. For the sun to be in Kow T'een, the sun must have moved back 180° or multiples thereof, at the sun miracle that day. Luh-ch'ing must be Lu Yang. Thus a sun miracle that Adar/January in Purim would give the Jews light and joy and victory the same day Lu Yang was in battle and had victory in China.

Then in the tenth year of Ching-Ying, Lu Yang = Luh-ch'ing died, in 458 BC. If there was a sun miracle in 458 BC, the Chinese may have taken it as an omen to assassinate Lu Yang who became duke also on a sun miracle when the sun reversed three solar mansions and his father Tan-chih died and Lu Yang became duke in the same battle January 465 BC. That is, the setting sun, reversed and rose in the west. Then at the finishing of the wall of Jerusalem in Xerxes' 20th year in 458 BC, there may have been a sun miracle. Then seventy weeks of year, 490 years, to Jesus' atonement at the crucifixion on April 3, 33 AD on the 49th of cycle jubile.

When the first month was February, the eleventh month was December. Then the sun was exactly in Scorpio Sagittarius, the constellation the sun was in December 11, 466 BC. (Hanukkah = December 12, 164 BC) The father of Luh-ching was Duke Ching of Sung. He witnessed Mars in the heart constellation, where it would not normally be then in 480 BC in October. See Mars.

There may be a parallel with the three days of darkness, the ninth plague of Exodus. If the sun rose in the west on China it would set in the east in Israel. The sun retreated three solar mansions. Thus the sun may have revolved around the earth 3 X 360°. Thus there could be 3 X 24 hours, 3 days, of darkness in Egypt/Israel. There is an oracle bone inscription connecting a comet with darkness. Comet Halley likely appeared about 1281 BC on day 35, March 29, 1281 BC.

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

Likewise, comet Halley should appear 465 BC, every 75 years back from 87 BC. Thus, the connection to how the emperor's spear was moved with the appearing of a comet.

Both during the three days of darkness in Egypt and on this Adar 13 in Esther there was light, (and gladness). There is also a connection to Hanukkah, a long night of 7 X 12 = the sun moved three and a half times around the earth for 7 days + 12 hours = 8 days of darkness that the oil must last to give light in the Temple. "The sun reversed three Che may refer to the sun rising in the west at sunset to the meridian. Thus the sun moved back three out of 12 zodiacal places. However, if the sun rose in the west at the same speed as the sun appears to travel east west each day, the sun should have moved 2 X 90°, = 180°. Thus the sun now on the other side of earth and earth would flow into a reverse orbit of the sun.

For earth to flow out of or into a reverse orbit, and move the sun move ten hours back on Ahaz's sun dial, the sun must move not 180° but 3 X 180°.







- You can see the character for Yang is the same as for sun.

Esther 8:9 "Then were the king's scribes called at that time in the third month, that is, the month Sivan, on the three and twentieth day thereof;"

Esther 8:14 "So the posts that rode upon mules and camels went out, being hastened and pressed on by the king's commandment. And the decree was given at Shushan the palace."

Esther 8:16 "The Jews had light, and gladness, and joy, and honour.
8:17 And in every province, and in every city, whithersoever the king's commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them."

If this was Xerxes 12th year, this sun miracle would be in 465 BC which was a year 7 of the 49 year jubilee. Thus Mordecai sought rest and release for the Jews in this Sabbath year 465 BC and again in the jubilee year in 458 BC.

This was about 465 BC in summer after the feast of Pentecost.

When in this province of Han, in Changsha, there was a carving of this very event outside a restaurant just outside of the Dolton Hotel with what may have been Lu Yang holding up his spear. Not far from Changsha is a place Lu Yang. I saw the sign from the highway. I asked Xueshun Liu about it and this is what he had to say: "As for the event where the sun reversed three stall for Lu Yang, there is no specific date in early Chinese texts; at least, I cannot find any. According to notes of that event, which you put a link to it, Lu Yang was not Liu Bang, the first emperor of the Han Dynasty. If the note is right, Lu Yang was a grandson of King Ping of Chu who ruled Chu from 528 BC to 515 BC. Thus, Lu Yang might live between 525 BC (?) and 450 BC (?). The date of that event, if it is true, should be around that period."

Luh-Ching succeeded his father in 465 BC, Xerxes's twelfth year. Even Xerxes' 12th month may be Luh-Ching's eleventh month. And he may have succeeded his father at this battle when the sun after setting, rose in the west as it must have in 470 BC for Lu Yang = Luang. Perhaps the same pattern of sun miracle was repeated often. Then if this was the day of Purim for Esther, the Jews would have 12 or 36 or 60 more hours of day light. This probably was in January/February or possibly in December.

If the sun just rose above the horizon and set again, the sun must be travelling very fast east. Even if the sun was standing still at the horizon it must rise some 30° as it travelled in a strait ling along the ecliptic over a tilted earth and the twilight be about 12 hours. Thus, Lu Yang should have at least three more hours of day light in 478 BC when he became emperor or 470 BC when he died. If the sun rose 30° - the greatest of the 28 lunar mansions, Lu Yang would have more than an hour more day light. Because the sun must have moved at least 180° east Lu Yang probably had 12 more hours of day light.

If the sun reversed three stall is to be meant 3 X 180° this battle could have lasted 36 more hours in day light.

Today over 90% of the Chinese population consider themselves Han from their victory in 202 BC.

"According to ancient Chinese astronomy, there are 12 Ci, each of them consists of different Xiu (constellation, mansion). Therefore, even in Han dynasty, the annotator did not know She meant Ci or Xiu. Should Ci be translated as "group of constellations"? I am not sure." -- Translation by Xueshun Liu.

3 groups of 2 = 6 or 180°. You can easily see depicted at the bottom "3 stalls". Three solar mansions could simply mean the sun moved 3 X 360°. In this scenario a few hundred years before king Hezekiah would see the sun retreat from the dawn position to rise in the west and retreat to the dawn position and the illness having remitted, gone up that day perhaps as the sun suddenly ascended as it may have for Jesus on the resurrection Sunday; and gone up the third day into the temple.

2 Kings 20:8b "What shall be the sign that the LORD will heal me, and that I shall go up into the house of the LORD the third day?"

The third day was a type of Jesus' resurrection the third day from Friday, that is, Sunday, April 5, 33 AD.

Ahab died in his 22nd year. Asa 38 years from 983 BC, Ahab 22 years, is 922 BC. The jubile day, Yom Kippur, September 9, 29 AD, 50th year, was from 22 BC. Thus, 922 BC - 900 years = the jubile when Jesus spoke from Luke 4 and began his ministry.

Yom Kippur would have been September 11, 922 BC = the 45th day of cycle 60 and the 45th year of reign of King Muh. A double omen of day 45 and year 45. Often emperors were killed because a sun miracle was taken as a bad omen:

"In his 45th year, Pe, prince of Loo died."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.51

This battle was at the death of Ahab, 922 BC. Thus, perhaps there was a sun miracle then, that was taken as an omen in China to kill Pe, the prince of Loo.

2 Kings 3:22 "And they rose up early in the morning, and the sun shone upon the water, and the Moabites saw the water on the other side as red as blood:
3:23 And they said, This is blood: the kings are surely slain, and they have smitten one another: now therefore, Moab, to the spoil."

The western sunrise, and the sun standing still on the horizon, the water would reflect the red sun like blood. Perhaps then the eastward movement of the wind was paralleled by an east ward movement of the sun. God looking from the western shore out of the Pillar of Fire may not have looked into the rising sun in the east to the Red Sea crossing, but the rising sun in the west lightened the Egyptian army crossing the Red Sea. Likewise, the Red Sea may have been named thus because the Israelites saw the western blood red sun rise and reflect the colour blood as if of the drowned Egyptians from the eastern shore. You can see by the change of one letter, Reed Sea may be Blood Sea, thus Red Sea:

Ahab died in 922 BC. Moab rebelled after Ahab died. Jesus spoke from Isaiah 61 September 29 AD, on the 50th year from 22 BC to fulfill the jubile.







Matthew 5:18 "For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."

There is at least one occurence of a blood water sun reflection, this about 926 BC:

Nevertheless, almost every time Red Sea is mentioned in the Old Testament it reads "Reed Sea", thus fresh water sea of the eastern most branch of the Nile River.

In both verses the Children of Israel are to stand still and see the salvation of God. Thus, there may have been a deliberate change from Reed Sea to Red Sea by the scribe of the Septuagint because in a similar case the water was turned red.

2 Chronicles 20:17 "Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you."

Exodus 14:13 "And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.

14:14 The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace."

"During the first year of King Yi (894 BC), in the first month of spring, the day dawned twice at Zheng"

"In his first year, which was ping-yin (3d of cycle = 894 BC), when he came to the throne, there were two sunrises in Ch'ing"
The Chinese Classics III, The Annals of the Bamboo Books

This double dawn must be the total solar eclipse, visible in northern China, of June 24, 894 BC:





Nevertheless, the Chinese character is sun above horizon, which may depict the sun dawning twice rather than a solar eclipse.

The Charge King Kung gave on in his 9th year, 899 BC, day 24 of cycle 60 must be the new moon, February 21, or April 21, 899 BC:





"In his 9th year (King Kung), in the spring, in the first month, on the day ting-hae (24th of cycle), the king made Leang, the recorder of the interior, convey a Charge to Ts'een, baron of Maou. In his 12th month he died"
The Chinese Classics, the Annals of the Bamboo Books, p151

,

This would make King Kung's first year 907 BC, 900 years before Jesus was to be born on September 12, 7 BC. Thus a sun miracle in 907 BC could be an omen to the Chinese to appoint a new emperor. 907 BC was when Athaliah became queen.

The next King was Yi who became King at the solar eclipse of 894 BC. Therefore this 9th year of King Kung could have been February 4, 896 BC, the full moon. the Passover was on the full moon. Thus there could have been a sun miracle on the Passover in Israel. Then we can go back two more years from the solar eclipse and double dawn of 894 BC. Or we may go back two more years from the solar eclipse of 899 BC to the full moon of March 1, 901 BC, which again may have been recorded as an omen from a sun miracle on the Passover. Or this day 24 of cycle 60 in the first month may be the new moon April 21, 899 BC. Thus this more visible solar eclipse may have been the omen for the King to make the Charge. Then a few years later there was also the solar eclipse that was seen in the north in 894 BC recorded as a double dawn.

So neither of these were sun miracles.

There may have been a like sun miracle for Lu Yang in 465 BC when the setting sun retreated three solar mansions.

"Prince Tau of Yin was an involuntary guest of the king of China when the sun returned to the meridian; it was interpreted as a sign to allow the prince to return home",
Lu-Heng II, 176

The time of the sun miracle in 230 BC must have been about midnight in March. Then the sun would travel 180° east. Then Venus in Aquarius would pass through the Pleiades before the sun dawned in the west to pass through the meridian. The sun may have travelled 540° east. Still this must have been about midnight in March for Venus to pass through the Pleiades. The wall tumbled down because of an earthquake. Earthquakes often occurred when there was a sun miracle.

"There was an earthquake in 230 BC and the people suffered from a major famine."
The Grand Scribe's Records, Volume I, p.132.

Famine and drought often followed sun miracles. The planets were moved when there was a sun miracle. A white rainbow pierced the sun in 397 BC and in this 230 BC. Hsin Yuan Ping saw an emanation of a deity when the sun returned to the meridian also in 163 BC. There may have been sun miracles in 210 BC and 203 BC also. There were also sun miracles in 155 BC, 148 BC and 141 BC. This very likely was the phoenix of Ptolemy III 246 BC - 222 BC. This jade phoenix from the Han dynasty from 230 BC - 206 BC may have been a representation of recent sightings of phoenixes.

Note the rooster comb or rather crown. Note from the side it looks like an eagle with two sets of wings like the four beasts in Ezekiel 1 and Revelation 4:

Jade phoenix with two sets of wings.

Note from the bottom the talons that grasped the sun:

Jade phoenix with talons.

The sun crow is depicted with three legs. In a profile sometimes only three of four legs are seen. The four beasts before God's throne had four legs. Thus the phoenix must have four legs.

A strong wind was recorded in Liu Pang's victory song in 204 BC:

"A great wind arose, clouds flew up!
My prestige increasing within the seas, I return to my hometown.
But where will I find valiant warriors to hold the four directions?"

'Surrounded by those who helped him take the four directions in the first place, this is a strange inquiry.'
The Grand Scribe's Records, volume II, p.94

The third month of 203 BC. Perhaps about the time of the Passover. 204 BC August 14 - September 12: "3rd year of Emperor Gaozu of Han, 7th month. A fuzzy star appeared (xing bo) in Dajiao for over ten days before going out of sight."
East Asian Archaeology, p. 129.

Perhaps there was a sun miracle in the seventh month, August/September 204 BC, and earth had flowed into a reverse orbit of the sun. Thus the need to find the four directions.

"Thereupon, he ordered the officials in charge of offerings to sacrifice to Heaven, earth, the four directions, Shang-ti (The Supreme Deity), the mountains and the rivers. The sacrifices were to be made according to the proper times." July/August 205 BC.
The Grand Scribe's Records, volume II, p.51

Liu Pang's father was given the name Chih-chia. Wang Fu give T'uan. It may be T'uan which means 'blazing, like a fire,' was his agnomen; a possible link between these names would be that if one 'grasps the good' his name is sure to become 'blazing' or 'illustrious'.
The Grand Scribes Records, Volume II, p.2.

Liu Pang was born either in 256 BC or 248 BC, on the year of sowing and reaping after the fallow year in Israel. Perhaps there was a sun miracle on his birth. Also, the reason his father was given the name 'blazing' may have been because he was born in the year of a blazing sudden sunrise in the east.

"In his 15th year, of emperor Wen, 166-165 BC, a yellow dragon appeared in Ch-eng-Chi. At this the sovereign issued an edict, saying "A super natural being appeared in Ch-eng-Chi. That will do no harm to the commoners. This year there will accordingly be a good harvest...The ritual officials concerned all said, "In ancient times the Son of Heaven in summer personally paid salutation and offered sacrifices in the suburbs to the Supreme deity."

This may have been a sun miracle in May of 166 BC, perhaps one year after the sun miracle of May 31, 167 BC. 165 BC was a 49th year jubile from 1241 BC.

"He proformed the rites in response to the auspicious Heavenly signs in the fourth month, the first month of summer (6 May-4 June 165 BC)."
The Grand Scribe's Records, Volume II, p.175.

The fist month of summer seems to match Pentecost in Israel, the 50th day from the passover.

"A yellow dragon should appear...the tenth month should be the annuary month." The fourth month, Hsin-yuan P'ing, a man of Chao, had an audience by virtue of having observed an emanatuon."

Thus half an orbit from the tenth month to the fourth month is six months, 180 days. Thus the sun may have moved to the other side of earth in the tenth month, and moved back six months later in the fourth month, and earth flow out of the reverse orbit of the sun.

Daniel 12:7 "And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
12:8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days."

From the Hebrew new moon, May 31, 167 BC to December 12, 164 BC is this 1290 days.

1260 days is 180 X 7. + 30 days = 1290 days.

Or 365 days X 3.5 = 1278 days, plus the 9 days of the longer summer half orbit from sabbath to sabbath = 1290 days.

There be 490 years from Hanukkah to the passover the following year. There be 800 days before. Adam was born in year 800 Armenian sothis = 4568 BC = 4600 years to Jesus crucifixion.

800 days before December 12, 164 BC is October 2, 166 BC = the 17th day of the seventh lunar month when Jesus would be born September 12, 7 BC.

490 days after December 12, 164 BC is the full moon = passover, Saturday, April 16, 162 BC. Jesus was crucified Friday, April 3, 33 AD.

1290 days before Jesus' sacrifice April 3, 33 AD is September 20, 29 AD = the 22nd day of the seventh month = the last day of the feast of tabernacles. 490 days back from Jesus' sacrifice is Hanukkah, November 30, 31 AD =

John 10:22 "And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.
10:23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch."

Thus, the three and a half years of Jesus' ministry from when Jesus spoke from Isaiah 61 to fullfill the jubile of Yom Kippur 12 days earlier, September 8, 29 AD.

From the defilement of the temple in 167 BC to Jesus' crucifixion and the temple of his body was raised three days later, is 200 years. The Romans took control of Israel from 67 BC. Thus the Romans had control of Israel for 100 years to Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection.

"He performed the rites in response to the auspicious Heavenly signs in the fourth month, the first month of summer,"

May 6 - June 4, 165 BC. In May 17, 166 BC there was a solar eclipse visible from China, total in the far south. Sometimes sun miracles happened at the same time as eclipses.
Hsin-yuan P'ing, a man of Ch'aou, had an audience by virtue of having observed an emanation."
Notes: "Hsin-yuan P'ing claimed he had observed an emanation of a deity northeast of the capital."
The grand scribe's records, Volume II, p.176, by Ch'ien Ssu-ma, William H. Nienhauser, Tsai Fa Cheng, Weiguo Cao.

That he saw a deity may have been he saw the angel at the sun move the sun, perhaps on the day of Pentecost Sunday May 11, 165 BC.

"Emperor Wen of Han, 15th year of the Qianyuan reign period, in spring. Within the sun there was the character wang (king)."
East Asian Archaeology, p.152.

1 Corinthians 13:12 "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known."

This event in spring could have been at the time of the Passover in Israel. This figure in the sun in 165 BC may be an angel or it may be the Son of God.

Revelation 19:17 "And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; "

Psalm 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,"

March 8, 32 BC the Passover month, "The sky became orange and then day light was dusky; within the sun there was a black vapor."

March 18, 29 BC, day 56 of cycle 60, Thursday, the full moon at the Passover and perhaps darkness at noon in Israel at sunset in China: "Emperor Cheng of Han, 3rd month, day jiwei 56, at sunrise the sun was yellow. There was a black vapor as large as a coin at its center."

March 10, 15 AD the Passover month, "Emperor Wang Mang, 2nd month, "A general amnesty was proclaimed throughout the empire. There was a black vapor as large as a coin at its center."

March 17, 20 AD Sunday 2nd Hebrew day to begin the Passover month, "The sun's center was black."
East Asian Archaeoloastronomy, Sunspots, p.152.

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."

God may have covered the sun to make it dark at noon on the Passover in Israel, and only partially dark in China at sunset.

The Pharisees maintained the Pentecost was to be counted 50 days from the day after the Passover while the Sadducees held that it be counted from the Sabbath following the Passover. Thus the Pharisees would be there to celebrate Pentecost on Sunday May 24, 33 AD and the Sadducees would be a week late. Then a sun miracle right when the Pharisees grouped from this 165 BC on this 50th day from the day after the Passover - Pentecost - Sunday May 11, 165 BC or June 10, 165 BC, and Leviticus 23 would have given them reason to be so particular about the feast of Pentecost.

"Hsin-yuan P'ing waited for the sun to return to the meridian and saw it", December 12, 164 BC.
The Grand Scribes Records Vol.II, p.176

After the sun had returned to the meridian once, he told the emperor, "I expected the sun to rise to the meridian twice [in one day.]"
"After a while the sun really rose to the meridian again."

Perhaps the sun retreated to the dawn position in China. Perhaps this was the beginning of Hanukkah and the sun stayed at the dawn position for 84 hours, 7 X 12 hours. Thus the long night in Israel that lasted eight nights. 7 X 12 hours plus the current night of 12 hours.

Liang Yu-Sheng argues it was this incident that made emperor Wen change the calendar. When he changed the 17th year to the first year. - in the 17th year, 164 - 163 BC, a jade cup was obtained and it was carved with the characters "The Ruler of Men will live a long life". At this the Son of Heaven changed the reign year count from seventeen to the first year.

The Syrian king Antiochus IV desecrated the temple in 168 BC, 200 years before Jesus' crucifixion.

In China on the new moon in Israel, May 31, 167 BC, just a few days before the feast of Barley harvest, Pentecost, the beginning of the third month:

The Prefect of the Grand Granary of Ch'i, Master Ch'un-yu, committed an offence and deserved to be punished. This had to do with agriculture and the seasons, perhaps the stars not appearing in their seasons. This is 1290 days to Hanukkah December 12, 164 BC.

Daniel 12:11 "And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
12:12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
12:13 But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of days."

The 1305 days would be Purim, January 25, 163 BC. After Kislew (Kislew II), Shebat, then Adar. And Adar 15 be the last day of the three days of Purim. Thus the children of Israel were delivered by God in Esther on the same day of the year, 15th of Adar, December 13, 466 BC. Then the Israelites would be fully delivered January 25, 163 BC keeping the same 1335 days.

I Maccabee 4:50 "Then they burned incense on the altar and lighted the lamps on the lampstand, and these gave light in the temple.
4:51 They placed the bread on the table and hung up the curtains. Thus they finished all the work they had undertaken.
4:52 Early in the morning on the twenty-fifth day of the ninth month, which is the month of Chislev, in the one hundred and forty-eighth year,"

Thus, the sun must have moved that day. Perhaps the sun stood on the other side of earth, leaving Jerusalem in darkness, for 7 X 180° = 7 X 12 hours + the 12 hours of the present night. This may be the eight days of Hanukkah that the temple lamps burned in eight days of darkness.

John 10:22 "And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.
10:23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch."

The feast of dedication was to this December, the lunar month November 18 to December 18, of 164 BC - therefore Saturday December 12, 164 BC - when the temple was cleansed.

Comet Halley was seen in 87 BC. Thus 76 years earlier in 164 BC comet Halley would be seen. Although there is no record of comet Halley in 164 BC, it may be included with the sun miracles that year, the year the Chinese emperor changed his 17th year to his first year of reign.

"A comet appeared in the northeast." In autumn.
A comet appeared in the southwest in the 12th month January 15, to February 15, 155 BC.

Two separate events.

In autumn hail fell in Heng-shan, the large ones measured five ts'un, the deep ones penetrating to two ch'ih. Mars moved in retrograde and guarded the North Star. The moon appeared in the vicinity of the North Star. Jupiter retrograded amid the constellation T'ien-t'ing. An elongated star appeared in the west. (February 154 BC)."

Notes: "T'ien-huo probably refers to ignis fatuus. This is the only reference to this phenomemon in the Shih chi. On ignis fatuus in general, see William H. Nienhauser, Jr., "A UFO in Ancient China: A Comparative Study of the Pi-fang (Fire Crane) and its Western Analogues,"
Asian Culture Quarterly, XVII (Winter 1989): 69-79

The Grand Scribes Records, Volume II, p.197-199:
The Han Shu records "sparkling star" in the western quarter of the sky in autumn. T'ien-huo is literally deity-fire. The Fire Crane probably is the phoenix. The phoenix in Chinese was often referred to as the red bird. Also, the Egyptian phoenix the Bennu was depicted as an Heron, crane. "Guarded" means moved to. Thus Mars would be moved 180° to near the north star, perhaps Scorpius in the sun miracle perhaps in July/August. 180° from where Mars normally is in August, Taurus, is Scorpius. Jupiter likewise moved to near the north star perhaps the night of the sun miracle in January/February. Chinese to French to English: "the planet of the year went the wrong way till the constellation T'ien-ting."

Notes: "Liang Yu-sheng believes that these movements of the two planets and the moon are not in keeping with astronomical probability and cites the Han shu "T'ien-wen chih" as containing more revelant information on the movement of the planets. David Pankenier:"The problem is essentially that, if pei-ch'en (the pole-star asterism) and t'ien-t'ing (San-t'ing) are given their usual attested meanings, the positional observations involving Mars, the Moon and Jupiter become physically impossible. The orbital inclination of Mars and Jupiter of 1.8 and 1.3 degrees respectively means neither is ever seen farther than that of the ecliptic. There is simply no way any of them could ever be observed in the vicinity of the north polar region to which pei-ch'en and t'ien-t'ing both refer. The same is true of the Moon.

The translation 'constellations north of the ecliptic' is not acceptable, even if understandable as an attempt to reconcile the irreconcilable. Even if this did solve the problem for Mars and the Moon, the problem of Jupiter's purported position remains unresolved."
The Grand Scribes Records, Volume II, Emperor Ching the Filial, Basic Annals, p.198

Thus Jupiter may have orbited the sun twice that year till the sun returned in February 154 BC and Jupiter was in the constellation Libra, the constellation the sun is in in winter. Thus this could be the north constellation. The comet may be the dragon, the glory of God. Thus a sun miracle in February, a sun miracle half an orbit later in August the beginning of the Chinese autumn, and a sun miracle in February again with the next comet. Then there must be a sun miracle one year after the sun miracle in August:

"On the yi-hai day of the sixth month (27 July 154 BC), the Emperor pardoned the troops that had led and Yi the son of King Yuan of Ch'u, and others who had participated in plotting rebellion."
Grand Scribes Records, Volume II, p.201

Thus this July 27, 154 BC may be the day the sun returned and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit. The comet that started the rebellion must have been on the day of a sun miracle January 27, 154 BC. This comet was associated with rebellion. Then the first sun miracle must have been July 27, 155 BC and was counted as autumn. Then also half an orbit later the comet or fire crane must have appeared at a sun miracle January 27, 154 BC.

This could move the sun movement of 155 BC back one year to 156 BC. Thus 156 BC was the seventh year, a fallow year, possibly the time for a sun miracle. Then there may have been three sun miracles, 156 BC, 149 BC and 142 BC, seven years apart.

"Emperor Jing of Han, 3rd year of the Qianyan reign period, 7th month. In the northern sky there was a scarlet object like a mat. It was more than ten zhang long. Some said it was a scarlet vapour, some said it was a fissure in the heavens."
East Asian Archaeology, p.188.

The seventh month began August 1, 154 BC.

The 50th year was the jubile. Thus counting back from the jubile when Jesus spoke from Isaiah 61, 29 + 155 = 184, - 3 X 50 = 34 / 7 = 5. Thus 156 BC - 155 BC must have been a 7th year, fallow year.

Jupiter and Mars never vary more than 2° from the plane of the ecliptic. Thus they could not normally approach the North Star, neither can the moon. So this must rather describe earth in a reverse orbit and the planets shifted out of the plane of their orbit. All the planets would appear to move in retrograde to appear in their seasons while earth was in a reverse orbit.

170 BC was the jubile. Thus in September 169 BC the children of Israel could sow. Likewise 7 years later in 162 BC and in 155 BC. Thus that summer of 155 BC the children of Israel would be hungry because that seventh year the land was fallow. Likewise at the sun miracle in autumn of 148 BC and in February 141 BC. However, the date of a solar eclipse October 22, 148 BC although a new moon is incorrect. There was a solar eclipse on June 7, 149 BC, day 11.

This solar eclipse was recorded in autumn the ninth month, not summer. Thus the October 22, 148 BC date on a new moon when solar eclipses can occur was the recorded date in "Grand Scribes Records, Volume II". As with other Chinese dates of eclipses, often they are records of sun movements. The same day of cycle 60 but different years and seasons.

These sun miracles may have been intended for the Sabbath year, the year of the fallow ground.

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 which he shall choose, thou shalt read this law before all Israel in their hearing."

Thus the law would be read at the time of the wise men when all of Jerusalem was troubled, September 15, 5 BC.

Exodus 40:1 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
40:2 On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
40:3 And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the vail."

Nehemiah 8:2 "And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month."

September 3, 458 BC was Sunday the first day of the seventh Hebrew month.

One year after Jesus was born, was September 12, 6 BC and was the first day of the seventh month.

There was an earthquake and it hailed heavily in 149 BC. Thus the sun may have moved one year earlier on October 22, 149 BC to move back October 22, 148 BC.

October 22, 149 BC was the 17th day of the seventh month. Thus there may be a sun miracle on that date symbolic of Jesus' birth to be the 17th day of the seventh month, September 12, 7 BC.

The king was often killed when there was a sun miracle. There was an amnesty declared on May 31, 148 BC. And what may have preceded it "The earth quaked. It hailed in Heng-shan and Yuan-tu with the large stones measuring a foot eight inches." Then the sun should return April 23, 147 BC: "In the third month (April 18 - May 17) a comet appeared in the northwest. In the fourth month the earth quaked." Thus the comet may have been the dragon. Thus perhaps a sun miracle 144 years before Jesus' birth in 7 BC.

"On the last day of the twelfth month (11 February 141 BC) it thundered. The sun appeared purple. Five planets moved in retrograde and guarded the constellation T'ai-wei. The moon passed through the center of the constellation T'ien-t'ing."
The Grand Scribes Records, Volume II, p.213.

Thunder in February was regarded as a sign. Thus again the planets, now all five in retrograde motion near T'ien-t'ing by the North Star. This is like the record of The emperor Chuen-Heuh; dynastic title Kaou-Yang. "His mother was called Neuchoo. She witnessed the Yaou-kwang star (Benetnasch) go through the moon like a rainbow." The moon never goes near the handle of the Big Dipper, Benetnash. The sun when dimed may appear purple during a sun miracle. A French translation to English "the sun appeared crimson". The sun must be dimmed over a long period to leave the same daily coral line.

From the Aquarium of Hawaii, in Maui:

Coral at the aquarium is given 12 hours of light each day. Thus the coral needs the equivalent of 12 hours of daylight each day. Each day lays a new layer. Perhaps more light in a shorter time could equal this normal 12 hour cycle.







As well as the increased water currents found during spring tides, a full moon means that the reef will be bathed in moonlight. There are several documented cases of diurnal fish, including butterflyfish and angelfish, continuing to forage busily in these conditions.

Deuteronomy 33:14 "And for the precious fruits brought forth by the sun, and for the precious things put forth by the moon,"

Also, sunlight must be dimmed to avoid overheating one side of the earth and disturbing weather patterns. Thus this describes earth in a reverse orbit with the five planets moving backwards against the stars through the year. The last day of the twelfth month is a new moon in Israel.

If this was rather March 12 then this might be the first day of Nissan, the beginning of the year. Even February 11, 141 BC, the new moon, may be the first day of the lunar month Nissan if the Israelites let their calendar back up one month. Also there are 29.5 days in a lunar cycle. Thus the Chinese could have counted February 12 as the 30th day, the end of the month. Then this February 12 should be the new moon in Israel.

The lunar calendar backs up 11 days a year. Then there must be a sun miracle on the day of Atonement 187 days later at the end of the year. This could be August 16, 141 BC. The sun must return 186.6 days later on this August 16, 141 BC the tenth lunar day of the seventh Hebrew month. If China saw the sun stand still at noon February 12, 141 BC Israel should see the sun stand still, retreat, or suddenly set and rise in the east, at sunset August 16, 141 BC.

A few months previous the sun and moon were recorded as red for five days. Thus a red sun can be normal. A crimson or purple sun is not normal. "This central palace is the projection of the imperial capital with the residence of the sovereign, or as Huai-nan-tzu writes: [The constellation] t'ai-wei is the court of the Great One, [the constellation] Purple Palace is the dwelling of the Great One. Polaris itself as the permanent residence of the Great One corresponds with the position of the emperor." The Great One is God. The Purple Palace may have been named after the colour purple of the sun in a sun miracle.

There may have been another sun miracle on June 11, 139 BC or on the full moon Thursday, day 45 of cycle 60, June 21, 138 BC:

"Emperor Wu of Han, 2nd year of the Jianyuan period, summer, 4th month, day wushen 45. There was a bright light as if the sun appeared at night."
East Asian Archaeology, p.189.

Thus both night battles of Joshua 10:9 and Judges 7:19 of Joshua and Gideon the same night, may have benefited from the sun rising in the west at night.

Dating the Captivity and the Return

Thales predicted an eclipse, supposedly the one that took place in May 28, 585 BC. However, he only predicted the year and there is no evidence he had the means to actually predict an eclipse at the time.

"Amoung their other battles there was one night engagement. As, however, the balance had not inclined in favour of either nation, another combat took place in the sixth year, in the course of which, just as the battle was growing warm, day was on a sudden changed into night.This event had been foretold by Thales, the Milesion, who forewarned the Ionians of it, fixing for it the very year in which it actually took place. The Medes and the Lydians, when they observed the change, ceased fighting, and were alike anxious to have terms of peace agreed on."
Herodotus, 1.74

How can the battle begin to warm at 4 PM just an hour before sunset? The soldiers would be retreating before the coming night. The day begins to warm usually about noon. Thus this "eclipse" may be the darkness at the fall of Jerusalem, noon, September 7, 591 BC, or 12:30 PM at Halys, Turkey.

Jerusalem fell the same year according to history. Some have dated the fall of Jerusalem eight months before the eclipse of Halys. Perhaps the fall of Jerusalem was the same time as the "eclipse" of Halys. Thus the eclipse of Thales and the eclipse that ended the battle between the Medes and the Lydians may be the darkness the seventh day of the lunar month September 7, 591 BC. Darkness at noon in Israel may be darkness in the afternoon in Halys Turkey. This eclipse was said to have occurred in the fourth year of the 48th Olympiad. Rather, the darkness may have been in the 46th Olympiad, the number 6 mistaken for the number 8. Jerusalem fell on the seventh day of the fifth month. Rather Jerusalem was burnt on the seventh day of the fifth month.

This is when the sun would be ashamed as prophesied in Jeremiah rather than on the beginning of the lunar month.

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 sun at the sunset position on China, noon Israel, would suddenly turn dark, and be the solar eclipse recorded in China. Thus also this sudden sunset on China may have been the sun revolving around the earth near the speed of light, and may be like the three hours, or hour of darkness, at noon, when Jesus was on the cross.

The eclipse of May 28, 585 BC lasted only a few minutes. You can see the path of totality passed through Halys Turkey:





So the solar eclipse record is possible. However, the sun would be setting on Halys Turkey and appear only minutes after the solar eclipse. The darkness at noon September 7, 591 BC may have lasted one hour and there be two hours of sunlight afterwards. The darkness recorded may have been the sun darkened at the fall of Jerusalem the same year, same time, September 7, 591 BC. Historians state the eclipse of Halys was the same year as the fall of Jerusalem. Thus the eclipse of Halys must be the darkened sun at the fall of Jerusalem, September 7, 591 BC.

The sun darkened in Israel at noon on the seventh day of the lunar month would last one hour as the sun revolved around the earth at the speed of light. Noon Israel time is about 12:30 PM in the afternoon at Halys Turkey where battle was joined in the afternoon. Far more effective in frightening the soldiers to abandon battle is the hour of darkness September 7, 591 BC. Thus a popular date of scholars has fallen.

See Five Millennium Canon of Solar Eclipses -1999 to +3000, by Jean Meeus and Fred Espanek, 2007.

"While the Lydians and Medes were still struggling for the upper hand in this war, during a battle begun in the sixth year, it happened that when the fighting had been joined, day suddenly became night. When the Lydians and Medes alike saw that it had become night in place of day, they broke off the battle and hastened on both sides with even more speed to bring about peace for themselves."

Six years previous the solar eclipse May 28, 585 BC was the fall of Jerusalem, September 7, 591 BC. Thus the sixth year may count from the year of the fall of Jerusalem.

Jeremiah 15:8 "Their widows are increased to me above the sand of the seas; I have brought upon them against the mother of the young men a spoiler at noon-day: I have caused him to fall upon it suddenly, and terrors upon the city.
15:9 She that hath borne seven languisheth: she hath given up the ghost; her sun is gone down while it was yet day: she hath been ashamed and confounded: and the residue of them will I deliver to the sword before their enemies, saith the LORD."

Also, counting from Joshua's conquest of Palestine in 1241 BC, 49 years to begin a jubile at the end of 49 years, the jubile would be in 603 BC, and the 12th year 591 BC.

Jesus stayed behind to inquire of the doctors of the law in Jerusalem when he was 12.

Thus the 12th year when Jerusalem was captured may have referred to the jubile year as well as to Zedekiah's 12th year. Nevertheless the jubile was also counted every 50 years.

Thus, with the first year in 1241 BC to the jubile to be in September 591 BC - the captivity was September 7, 591 BC so the jubile was not celebrated till the return 70 years later. 591 BC less 70 years captivity, then from 521 BC the last jubile was September 9, 29 AD when Jesus spoke from Isaiah 61.

Thus also from the 20th year of Xerxes in Shushun, when the wall around Jerusalem was completed in 458 BC, was 10 jubiles of 49 years, 490 years to Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD. Also, counting 49 year jubiles from 1242 BC, continually to 33 AD without the 70 year captivity. Moses died in the fortieh year of the Exodus from March 30, 1281 BC, that would be November 26, 1242 BC. Then the 49 year cycle jubile should count from the beginning of the fiftieth year, 1242 BC. This works continually to Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD.

The sun may have fallen from the sky in September 7, 591 BC on the seventh day of the lunar month rather than on the first day when there was a new moon. Even so, there was no solar eclipse at that new moon. The date of a solar eclipse in China that was no eclipse yet was the 7th day of the fifth month 40th day of cycle 60, sixth month 591 BC. Then what was recorded as an eclipse at the battle of Halys may have been the darkness at noon Israel when the temple was taken.

The sun must have fallen from the sky at noon time September 7, 591 BC. Thus the Chinese would see the setting sun suddenly set and no sunset twilight but sudden darkness and recorded a solar eclipse on day 40. This would be lunar day 40 counting from the previous month. Because of the difference of one day in the beginning of the lunar month, this would be the Hebrew lunar day 9 of the second lunar month.

Daniel 9:24 "Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy."

Seventy X seven = 490 years, from the completion of the wall of Jerusalem to Jesus' sacrifice.

The sun fell from the sky at noon in Amos. The sun fell from the sky for Moses to begin the three days of darkness in Egypt in Exodus, perhaps February 14, 1281 BC. The sun also fell from the sky in Phaethon, perhaps dating from many sun miracles starting from a sun miracle about 2313 BC and the low Nile during the seven years of famine in Egypt. The eclipse of May 28, 585 BC was for 4PM hardly the time "when the fighting had been joined, day suddenly became night". Also the seventh day of the fifth month, rather the seventh day of the fifth month, could not be a solar eclipse or a lunar eclipse. Thus rather than the May 28, 585 BC solar eclipse, the sun may have fallen from the sky at this battle and at the fall of Jerusalem September 7, 591 BC on the seventh day of the fifth month.

Thus, the Captivity of Jerusalem may rather have been from September 7, 591 BC on the seventh day of the lunar month as recorded in the Bible. A sun miracle and not a solar eclipse.

Habakkuk 1:9 "They shall come all for violence: their faces shall sup up as the east wind, and they shall gather the captivity as the sand."

The word for sand can mean phoenix as in Job 29:18. Perhaps this indicates a sun miracle upon the fall of Jerusalem.

2 Kings 25:8 "And in the fifth month, on the seventh day of the month, which is the nineteenth year of king Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, came Nebuzaradan, captain of the guard, a servant of of the king of Babylon, unto Jerusalem:
25:9 And he burnt the house of the LORD, and the king's house, and all the houses of Jerusalem, and every great man's house he burnt with fire."

Nebuchadnezzar wrote:

Daniel 4:2 "I thought it good to shew the signs and wonders that the high God hath wrought toward me.
4:3 How great are his signs! and how mighty are his wonders!"

Darius wrote:

Daniel 6:27 "He delivereth and rescueth, and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the lions."

Daniel 5:31 "And Darius the Median took the kingdom, being about threescore and two years old."

Daniel 9:1 "In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes, which was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans;
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."

Daniel 10:1 "In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing was true, but the time appointed was long: and he understood the thing, and had understanding of the vision."

Jeremiah 29:10 "For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place."

Ezra 3:4 "They kept also the feast of tabernacles, as it is written, and offered the daily burnt offerings by number, according to the custom, as the duty of every day required;"

Ezra 3:1 "And when the seventh month was come, and the children of Israel were in the cities, the people gathered themselves together as one man to Jerusalem."

In India Mahavira attained Nirvana on 15 October 527 BC. This could be the new moon day 1 = October 15, 527 BC = the first day of the seventh month, or the full moon day 15 the first day of the feast of tabernacles. This may be the background for the Diwali festival of lights November 11, 2015. Ezra 3:4 may have occurred on this date, the 15th lunar day of the seventh month = the first day of the feast of tabernacles. Darius died in 477 BC not 486 BC. Thus Cyrus may not have died in 530 BC, but 521 BC. Thus this decree may have been made in 527 BC whereupon a sun miracle on the feast of tabernacles.

Ezra 1:1 "Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying,
1:2 Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The LORD God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah."

Cyrus reigned over Persia from 550 BC, (not 560 BC). Cyrus reigned over Babylon from 530 BC to 520 BC. Thus Cyrus' first year must count from his conquest of Babylon in about 530 BC. Then his decree to build the temple of Jerusalem was begun about 527 BC. Thus the Indian festival of lights may have originated with a sun miracle of darkness and light.

There may have been counted 70 years of captivity from 600 BC to 630 BC as well as from 591 BC to 521 BC.

Daniel 11:1 "Also I in the first year of Darius the Mede, even I, stood to confirm and to strengthen him."

The Darius in Daniel 11:1 may be the King Darius of Persia who reigned for 31 years from 509 BC to 477 BC. Thus Daniel may have died in Darius' first year before the work to build the second temple began in Darius' second year.

Darius of Daniel, that appears at 62 years of age, does not appear to be Darius I of Persia. Daniel if born in 630 BC would also be about 80 years of age in 550 BC. Cyrus appears to take the kingdom about 551 BC when this Darius may have been made governor. Thus the captivity had been 40 years and perhaps at this time Daniel understood there would be 30 more years to the return.

Perhaps there was a sun miracle in Cyrus' time, Cyrus means "like the sun".

Isaiah 41:25 "I have raised up one from the north, and he shall come: from the rising of the sun shall he call upon my name: and he shall come upon princes as upon morter, and as the potter treadeth clay."

Isaiah 45:5 "I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
45:6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else."

Perhaps the sun rose in the west and set in the east when Cyrus was raised, and thus the meaning of the name Cyrus means the sun.

Daniel, born about 630 BC, led into captivity about 610 BC.

Daniel 10:1 "In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing was true, but the time appointed was long: and he understood the thing, and had understanding of the vision.
10:2 In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks.
10:3 I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.
10:4 And in the four and twentieth day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, which is Hiddekel;
10:5 Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz:
10:6 His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude."

This "four and twentieth day of the first month" may be half an orbit before the eclipse record of day 30 of cycle, the new moon, July 18, 549 BC which was no solar eclipse. Then half an orbit before the sun miracle is 183 days. This is because earth's nearest approach to the sun was about the winter solstice about December 25 in 549 BC - thus both halves of orbit should be an equal 183 days. Thus half an orbit before the sun miracle of July 18 549 BC on day 30 of cycle in the seventh Chinese month, is January 19 the 24th day of the first lunar month of the year. Thus there may have been a sun miracle this day Daniel met with Jesus, perhaps January 19, 549 BC. Thus 549 BC would be the third year of Cyrus. Then his first year would be 551 BC - 32 years to 519 BC and Cambyses first year. Then 9 years to Darius I in 509 BC.

Then 32 years of Darius to Xerxes in 477 BC.

The Darius the Mede in Daniel could not be the same person as Darius the King of Persia in Ezra. Cyrus in the Bible must be the Cyrus the Great. In 515 BC at the beginning of Cambyses' reign, when he conquered Egypt a comet appeared. Thus Cyrus gave the commandment to build the temple at Jerusalem a few years earlier about 521 BC. Thus Cyrus reigned 32 years from 551 BC to 519 BC. Then construction of the temple ceased about 519 BC.

"In the thirty-second year (516 BC), a comet appeared."
The Grand Scribes Records, Volume V.1, p.106

In 516 BC in China: "32nd year of Duke Jing of Qi, a broom star appeared."
East Asian Archaeoastronomy, p.111

The 70 years of Israel's captivity may have been from 591 BC to 521 BC. 509 BC may have been the first year of Darius the king of Persia. Cyrus the Great must have wrote the decree of the return of the Jews, after 70 years of captivity, 591 BC - 521 BC. Thus the second temple period began in 521 BC. They left off building the temple after laying the foundation in 521 BC for fifteen years to 507 BC and to 504 BC when the second temple was finished on February 10, 504 BC. Darius reigned 31 years according to Jewish tradition. Ctesias, who served in the Persian court of Artexerxes Mnemon, 404 BC - 359 BC, 17 years and thoroughly researched the Persian Archives stated Darius reigned 31 years. Herodotus stated Darius reigned 36 years.

However, Herodotus never set foot in Persia.

Ezra 5:24 "Then ceased the work of the house of God which is at Jerusalem. So it ceased unto the second year of the reign of Darius king of Persia."

The second year of Darius must be 507 BC. Then his sixth year would be 504 BC. Then counting 49 year cycles from 1242 BC to this 507 BC when the work on the second temple resumed.

Haggai 1:1 "In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying,"

This should be the first day of the sixth lunar month, the first day of the week, Sunday, August 4, 7 BC.

Haggai 2:1 "In the seventh month, in the one and twentieth day of the month, came the word of the LORD by the prophet Haggai, saying,"

This should be Sunday September 22, 7 BC. The 17th day would have been September 18, 507 BC = September 13, 7 BC when Jesus may have been born. The equinox was 5 days later September 27 in 507 BC, being September 22 in 7 BC.

Ezra 6:15 "And this house was finished on the third day of the month Adar, which was in the sixth year of the reign of Darius the king."

Ezra 6:19 "And the children of the captivity kept the passover upon the fourteenth day of the first month."

One year after this 3rd of Adar, February 10 504 BC, was 14 of Adar, February 10, 503 BC. Possibly the passover was celebrated one year after the completion of the temple, and the sun returned and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun. Thus, the seventh year = one year after the sixth year. Although Adar, an adjustment of one month one year later would make it the passover.

Haggai 1:1 "In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying,"

Haggai 2:1 "In the seventh month, in the one and twentieth day of the month, came the word of the LORD by the prophet Haggai, saying,"

Haggai 2:10 "In the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying,"

The first day of the sixth month may be Sunday, August 4, 507 BC in Darius' second year. Then the 21st of the seventh month may be Sunday, September 22, 507 BC. Then the 24th day of the ninth month be Sunday, November 24, 507 BC.

In 532 BC, "13th year of King Jing of Zhou, in spring. A star emerged in Wunu."
East Asian Archaeology, p.129.

70 years after Jeremiah warned of the captivity, Jeremiah 26:1. Cyrus the Great's first year was 549 BC. There possibly was a solar eclipses recorded in China in 549 BC that was not visible in China for July 18, 549 BC. Thus possibly there was a sun miracle at the beginning of Cyrus' reign. Cyrus means the Sun. In 524 BC five Chinese texts report a sparkling star in winter in Scorpius which then moved to the Milky Way. The dragon was bright, and if so many Chinese recorded this sparkling star, it may have been rather the glory of God during Cyrus' reign. Darius reigned from 509 BC not 522 BC. So Cyrus ruled from 550 BC to 520 BC. Thus in 522 BC after 70 years of captivity from 591 BC Cyrus proclaimed the temple of Jerusalem should be built.

II Chronicles 36:22 "Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah might be accomplished, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying,
36:23 Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth hath the LORD God of heaven given me; and he hath charged me to build him an house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? The LORD his God be with him, and let him go up."

Jeremiah 1:1 "Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying,"

Ezra 1:2 "Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The LORD God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah."

"Duke Hsuan, 8th year, 7th month, day chia-tzu. The Sun was eclipsed and it was total."

Refers to a total solar eclipse of 20 September 601 BC.
From: Ch'un-ch'iu, book VII (Chinese).

The path of totality went through China and Europe, the sun was may have been 100% obscured by the moon when recorded from China according to the new eclipse maps by NASA for 2007. This was about the time of the captivity. However this eclipse record was for day 11 of cycle 60, when the 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. Josiah began his reign in 644 BC when he was 8. So in 613 BC he would be 39, the age of Jesus when he was crucified.

2 Kings 23:23 "But in the eighteenth year of king Josiah, wherein this passover was holden to the LORD in Jerusalem."

Josiah's last year would be 613 BC.

"A broom star entered Pei Tou, the Big Dipper, during the month of 612 BC.

August 4 - September 2. The Ch'un Ch'ui says:

"Then as a broom sweeps away what is old to give place to something new, a comet is supposed to presage changes." James Legge says this was in 611 BC, Williams and Wen Shion Tsu say this was 610 BC."
Cometography: a catalog of comets By Gary W. Kronk, p.1.

This comet may rather be the dragon, the glory of God. Thus there may have been a sun miracle at this passover in 611 BC in March 4 or the first of Nisan February 19 then a sun miracle and this "comet" in September 1 on the day of Atonement in 611 BC.

2 Kings 24:1 "In his days Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up, and Jehoiakim became his servant three years: then he turned and rebelled against him."

This third year may be 611 BC.

Or this may be a sign in 613 BC when Pharaoh Necho went to war against Josiah, and Josiah was killed.

"The original discovery (of the cause of eclipses) was made in Greece by Thales of Miletus, who in the fourth year of the 48th Olympiad (585 BC/584 BC) foretold the eclipse of the Sun that occurred in the reign of Alyattes, in the 170th year after the foundation of Rome (584/3 BC)" The solar eclipse of 585 BC on the new moon is not the same day the sun fell from the sky on the seventh day of the fifth lunar month on Jerusalem. This eclipse record may describe an eclipse but not the fall of Jerusalem. Ahaz may have died in 717 BC. The destruction of Jerusalem in 591 BC. Darius' first year in 509 BC. The temple was finished in Darius' sixth year 504 BC. Darius reigned at least 31 years to 479 BC. 591 BC may have been the year Jerusalem and the temple at Jerusalem were completely destroyed.

This record of an eclipse may rather be a record of a sun miracle on Saturday September 7, 591 BC, rather than an eclipse May 28, 585 BC that does not really work with the lunar day 7 when eclipses only occur on the lunar day 29.

"In his 26th year, an azure rainbow was seen in Tsin." 494 BC.
The Chinese Classics III, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.66.

This green rainbow was seen in 493 BC; the emperor was King Jing who reigned from 518 BC to 483 BC. The Milky Way was not visible in China in King Jing's 14th year from 518 BC, 505 BC, - the eclipse record in the 15th year was rather in year 33 of cycle 60 and not year 32 of cycle 60, day 48 February 10, 504 BC - when the temple was finished on the third day of Adar.

1.5 X 365 = 547 days. 547 days back from February 10, 504 BC = August 11, 506 BC = the 17th day of the 7th month. 490 days back from February 10, 504 BC = October 8 = the 17th day of the 7th month. The seventh lunar month can be from August to October.

This 504 BC was during Darius' reign, in his 6th year from 509 BC. In King Darius' 20th year Ptolemy reported there was a lunar eclipse perhaps 490 BC. These could rather be sun miracles and the green bow from the glory of God. Thus Darius reigned 31 years from 510 BC to 479 BC when there was an eclipse in his 31st year. There there was a sun miracle recorded in China in 480 BC at the time Darius was in the battle of Marathon.

Here you can see a rainbow with dragon heads at either end. Then below a dragon drinking. The dragon rainbow may be this green rainbow, perhaps the rainbow around God's throne. The full oracle bone is below:

Dragon Drinks, Large

Dragon Drinks, whole oracle bone

"The king inspected the bone and said: "A disaster will happen." Eight days later, on the day gengxu (47), clouds came from the east, and the sky became overcast. As the sun was setting, a dragon in the shape of a rainbow appeared in the north, and drank from the Yellow River."
The Chinese Language, Its History and Current Usage, P.80.

- you can see the dragon/rainbow in the center and the dragon drinking. The dragon's rainbow is different than the character for rainbow, with a dragon head at each end. The dragon's light must have been brighter than the setting sun - or the sun sank well below the horizon, to cause an azure emerald green dragon rainbow.

Here you can see the colour of an emerald:





Above the rainbow the character looks like a foot getting out of a pit and it means to come out/appear. A lunar eclipse may look like a foot coming out of the moon. Thus the dragon came out and appeared in the shape of a rainbow.

That is, when the dragon appeared in China he was very bright - so bright you could not look at it! So when they saw him through the clouds they would see a glowing rainbow around him and say that was the dragon! Often just before the dragon appeared clouds came. Yet they could see the dragon through the clouds because he was so bright. The sun may have set in the east.

"On day xinhai [48]; we should perform a gao reporting rite about the Dragon to Fu Ding using one ox."
Heji, 32679
This may be the day after they saw the dragon on day 47. This may be to ancestor Wu Ding, now Fu Ding ancestor. Moreover, The King may be King Wu Yi rather than Wuding. Also the dragon appearing in the north. Then this may be the reason Wu Yi left Anyang (Yin) for a place north of the Ho, the Yellow River. See Woo-Yih

Job 40:23 "Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth."

There was a lunar eclipse day 47of cycle 60, March 18, 1345 BC during King Wuding's reign. Earth's shadow on the moon may have looked like a foot stepping out of a pit.

There may have been a sun miracle one year earlier on day 42:

Divined on day yisi 42: "In performing the you-ritual we should perhaps invoke ancestor Xiao Yi. Use this one. The Sun has a blemish. We should report it in the evening to ancestor Shang Jia using nine oxen."
Heji, 33696

Wuding began his reign in 1393 BC = jin-yin = 30 of cycle 60. The second last line of record, "in his 50th year he lead an expedition". 50th from 1393 BC = 1344 BC. The next line: In his 9th year he died. There must be a sun miracle in this 50th year 1344 BC for King Wuding to begin his reign count over, to count 9 more years.

Likewise, There was a sun miracle in king Wan's 45th year, from which he obtained the bright appointment from heaven also for 9 years.

In Te-sin's 32d year, 1194 BC, it was recorded:
"There was a conjunction of the five planets in Fang. A red crow lighted on the altar to the spirits in the land of Chow."
The Chinese Classics, The Bamboo Books, p.140

Likewise the Chinese emperor following the sun rising in the west to the meridian on Hanukkah, December 13, 164 BC, began his reign of 17 years, to be recounted to year one in 164 BC:

"In the 17th year, 164 BC, a jade cup was obtained and it was carved with the characters "The Ruler of Men will live a long life." At this the Son of Heaven for the first time changed the reign year count to the first year.
The Grand Scribes Records, volume II, p.176.

Rameses II fought and won against the Syrians in what would become Israel in his 9th and 10th year = 1345 BC. Ra means sun. Rameses II could use a sun miracle at the time as an omen for his victory.

There was also an eclipse recorded at the founding of Rome in spring 753 BC, when there was no eclipse that year. 752 BC was the 49th year jubile from 1241 BC. This event may be rather a sun miracle:

Isaiah 6:1 "In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple."

Uzziah must have died about 750 BC. Thus the sun miracle whereupon Rome was founded may have been a sun miracle to mark the death of King Uzziah.

Isaiah may be the son of Amos, and not Amoz, because Jeroboam was contemporary with Azariah not Uzziah.

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."

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."

Thus the 41 years of Jeroboam ended in the 14th year of Azariah. Azariah reigned 38 years to Uzziah. Isaiah could be the son of the prophet Amos because Amos lived a generation before.

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 on the clear day:"

Although, the prophesy may be of the captivity of Jerusalem, September 7, 591 BC = the 7th day of the lunar month when there cannot be a solar eclipse, and the 40th day of cycle 60 in China in autumn of 591 BC, that cannot be the date of a solar eclipse either.

"In (King King's) 14th year (505 BC) the milky way was not visible in the sky."

This verse in Nehemiah for 458 BC for the building of the wall of Jerusalem may apply also the building of the second temple in 505 BC. There may have been light for the Israelites to work in the night in 505 BC, the 14th year of King Jing when the milky way was not visible. We do not see the milky way today because of light pollution. At that time there was abosolutely no light pollution and the milky way should have been very visible.

Nehemiah 4:21 "So we laboured in the work: and half of them held the spears from the rising of the morning till the stars appeared."

King Jing's first year 518 BC in Jin-woo, 19th of cycle; - The eclipse record for his 15th year, sin hai day 48 February 16, 505 BC may be sin hai day 48 February 10 the third day of the lunar month Adar in Israel when the temple was finished. Thus the 15th year from 518 BC be rather a sun miracle on February 10, 504 BC and not be an eclipse. The exact first year of King Jing was 518 BC and the exact 15th year is 504 BC not the solar eclipse of 505 BC. The sixth year of Darius may be 504 BC when the temple was finished on the third of Adar, after a 15 year lapse, see Zechariah 14:5-9. The first year, of the fifty years to the jubile in the fiftieth year, was counted from 521 BC.

And the prophesies of eating of that which groweth of itself the second and third years must mean a jubile year 50th in August/September 592 BC to September 591 BC. Then the assurance that God would not take them into captivity yet, in 701 BC in the third fallow year from year 49 in 703 BC. Jesus' crucifixion was in April 3, 33 AD in the 49th year counting from this 49 year cycle. Thus Hezekiah may have been a type of Jesus to die in the 49th cycle when he was 38 years old. Thus the year of Jesus' resurrection was also the jubile of the following 50th year that September 33 AD. There was a 49 year cycle and a 50 year cycle from Joshua's first year crossing the Jordan to Canaan in 1241 BC.

The Sabbath year 49 cycle was in 703 BC, jubile in 702 BC and sowing in 701 BC and perhaps Hezekiah's Sign in 703 BC in Hezekiah's 14th year from 717 BC. When Jesus came with the gospel it was the 49th and 50th year of no sowing also. Only the people ate in the third year of the land in 31 AD. The 49 Sabbath fallow year cycle also fell on the resurrection year, to begin the other 49 year jubile, April 5, 33 AD and Pentecost May 25, 33 AD when they ate of the first crop of Barley when the Holy Ghost was given. 520 BC is a common date for the laying of the foundation of the temple and probably is correct. They then left off building the temple for 15 years. There was a tunnel around the perimeter of the wall of the temple for drainage just discovered in 2011.

Thus there was a lot of work even to lay the foundation. It is commonly believed the temple was finished about 15 years after Cyrus made his decree in 530 BC. This would be 515 BC. Nevertheless, the temple was finished 15 years after the foundation had been laid in 519 BC, thus February 504 BC.

Thus the proclamation of Cyrus may have been made in 521 BC after the 70 years of Captivity.

The 25th year of King Jing was recorded a solar eclipse on day 17 of cycle 60, July 22, 495 BC. The Azure rainbow seen in China in 494 BC.

The first year of King Jing is in 518 BC in the Chinese Classics with the solar eclipse record, in his 15th year, year 33 of cycle 60, was 504 BC February 10. The temple may have been finished that day the 3rd day of Adar. Therefore, the Milky Way may not have been visible in his 14th year, the year, 505 BC, because God gave the Israelites light to build during the night. The solar eclipse record for day 32 of cycle 60, the new moon April 9, 518 BC was very visible in China. Solar eclipse dates on the same day of 48 of cycle 60. So what was recorded, at least for February 10, 504 BC, was not a solar eclipse but a sun miracle on the same day 48 of cycle 60.

518 BC was about the time when the construction of the Second Temple was stopped.

If the accepted chronology is King Jing's first year 518 BC, then this eclipse record for February 16, 505 BC could actually be a sun miracle Thursday February 10, 504 BC. Darius' sixth year 504 BC, his first year 509 BC, his 20th year 490 BC to his 31st year at the battle of Marathon in 480 BC. Then the battle of Salamis may have been in 470 BC.

During the battle of Salamis a "horn shaped object" was said to have flown over during the battle of Salamis. This may have been a comet or meteorite. Or this event may be part of a sun miracle. A tiny partial solar eclipse was taken as an omen for the Spartans to stop the battle.

Perhaps this was the same day Esther was made queen with Xerxes in the tenth month of Tabet. Then Xerxes gave gifts like it was for the jubile at that time. There may have been a sun miracle in 480 BC, at the battle of Marathon in 480 BC. The battle of Salamis is commonly, and mistakenly, dated 480 BC and the battle of Marathon 490 BC.

"I have represented the battle of Marathon as beginning in the afternoon, and ending towards evening. If it had lasted all day, Herodotus would have probably mentioned that fact. That it ended towards evening is, I think, proved by the line from the "Vespae" which I have already quoted, and to which my attention was called by Sir Edward Bulwer Lytton's account of the battle."

The reverse orbit in Autumn of 480 BC indicated by the movement of Mars in China may have started with the sun falling from the sky in the midst of the battle of Marathon. The battle of Marathon probably was in September of 480 BC and the sun miracle of September 470 BC be in Xerxes' fifth year. Perhaps this was October, and the tenth month Tabet. The record states it was the year of the Olympiad. So if the mistaken eclipse is 478 BC then 2 X 4 years later, 470 BC, is the actual date of Salamis.

There was an eclipse in 480 BC.

There was a total eclipse visible from Greece on February 17, 478 BC. However, I do not believe this was the eclipse of Xerxes while in Egypt. A sun miracle in September of 480 BC must be followed by a sun miracle half an orbit later in March 479 BC. Likewise, two winter half reverse orbits add up to one hour net missing time. Then in March or April of 479 BC it would seem likely the sun could revolve around the earth for one hour at the speed of light. Thus not only would the sun be darkened like an eclipse, it would be darkened and suddenly set in the east or west. Thus the sun would "disappear". Likewise in the spring of 471 BC, or 469 BC, when Xerxes departed from Susa: "for the sun disappeared in a cloudless and clear sky, and day became night."

471 BC was the 50th year jubile, the first jubile from the return of the captivity in 521 BC. Thus a sun miracle in 471 BC may be expected.

There was a total eclipse October 2, 480 BC. However, there was no spring eclipse that year in Egypt. Therefore this date is wrong.

Xerxes could have come to rule in 477 BC and the battle of Salamis be seven years later in 470 BC.

Here you see the two solar eclipses of Xerxes' Salamis expedition. The first one was in early spring, and was a total solar eclipse at Egypt, March 20, 470 BC:





The second was a partial solar eclipse the Spartans took as an omen to let the Persians go. The partial solar eclipse was barely visible in southern Greece. You can see the upper line beside Greece. There is a margin of error of 40 minutes. Therefore by starring at the sun they could see the moon slightly cover the sun, September 12, 470 BC:





.

There was no total eclipse in the spring of 480 BC in Egypt. Therefore the 480 BC date is incorrect, and the 470 BC eclipse dates are the correct ones. This affirms Xerxes' 20th year in 458 BC when he was still alive in his 20th year.

Then the battle of Marathon be in 480 BC.

Darius reigned 32 years. Thus perhaps from 509 BC to 477 BC. The second temple may have been started in 521 BC, 70 years after it had been destroyed. Then was left from building for 15 years. Then the temple may have been finished on February 11, 504 BC - the Friday before the Sabbath. There was an eclipse recorded that day in China which could only be a sun miracle.

"In (King King's) 14th year (504 BC not 505 BC) the Milky Way was not visible in the sky."

The first Temple at Jerusalem was building, from 1041 BC = 240 years, not 480 years, from the Exodus 1281 BC.

1 Kings 7:1 "But Solomon was building his own house thirteen years, and he finished all his house."

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."

The twilight in Zechariah 14 speaks of God's Spirit in the temple. Jesus was in the temple August 16, 32 AD, on the last great day of the feast of tabernacles when was twilight.

John 7:37 "In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water."

Then Xerxes may have reigned from 477 BC and his twentieth year when the walls of Jerusalam were built be in 458 BC, which is 490 years from Jesus' crucifixion on April 3, 33 AD.

A sun miracle could be taken as an omen for a new leader or an omen to go to battle. Xerxes was moved to attack Greece, officially dated in 480 BC. Possibly this Battle of Salamis was in 470 BC because king Tabnit reigned from 470 BC to 465 BC. Because Tetramnestos named in the battle of Salamis means "four times memorable" and may be Tabnit "model, image". If Daniel's 490 years from the 20th year, in Nehemiah, in Shushan count to Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD, then the first year must have been in 478 BC.

Daniel 9:24 "Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times."

Seven weeks can mean again seventy weeks. "weeks" seven days or seven years, thus 70 X 7 = 490 years or days. Nehemiah began and finished the wall around Jerusalem in the 20th year in Shushan. Which then must be 458 BC. This could make all dates 7 years more recent than the commonly accepted chronology.

The 20th year may have counted from 478 BC.

The Bible text in Nehemiah states the wall of Jerusalem was finished in the 20th year at Shushan. And there is some evidence for 478 BC being Xerxes' first year. Then his third year would be 476 BC when he had the 180 day feast. There were lunar eclipses 180 days apart and both visible in Persia on February 6, 477 BC and August 1, 477 BC. There could have been sun miracles on those dates. Then Xerxes' seventh year would be the year before the jubile in 472 BC when possessions were to be restored. Esther appeared before Xerxes in the seventh year perhaps the jubile year of 472 BC. Then there may have been a sun miracle one year before Esther was made queen, then six months of myrrh, sun miracles, then six months of sweet odors and the sun returned in Tebet.

The 12th year 12th month may have been February 466 BC. If the months were left to fall back, the lunar eclipse Dec 26 466 BC could be the 14th of Adar the 12th month and the 12th year of Xerxes. This could be the fourth year of Yuang when the sun reversed three solar mansions when it was setting for Lu Yang in China.

There are exactly 490 days from the dedication of the temple in the 25th day of Kislew to the second passover 490 days later no matter what year. From November 29, 31 AD, the 25th day of Kislew, to April 3, 33 AD when Jesus was crucified are exactly 490 days.

John 10:22 "And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.
10:23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch."

I Maccabee 4:52 "Now on the five and twentieth day of the ninth month, which is called the month of Kislew (December), in the hundred forty and eighth year (Saturday, December 12, 164 BC), they rose up in the morning, and offered sacrifice according to the law upon the new altar of burnt offerings, which they had made."

Perhaps the eight nights of Hanukkah were one long night that lasted 8 nights. Then the sun retreated from the noon position in Israel to the morning position in China and stood still in the morning position in China for 8 X 12 hours. Then that long night in Israel would last 8 X 12 hours, 96 hours. Then the other three sun miracles that year would be the sun travelling 180° west, or -12 hours. 9 X 12 - 3 X 12 = 60 hours. Then there had to have been a reverse orbit just previous that had three + 12 hour days and one -12 hour day. So the two reverse orbits long days would add up to 96 hours or 2 X 48 hours. Thus the -48 hour earth was sped up that year would be countered by +48 hours in net time of long day/night.

The feast for 180 days in Esther 1:4 may have symbolized the 180 degrees or 180 days between two sun miracles, even to lunar eclipses timed to appear as eclipses. 476 BC could be the third year in Shushan. Vashti may have passed the first six months of purification, then the next 180 days of purification to the feast. The 12th year of Xerxes the month of Adar could be the autumn of 465 BC when the sun retreated three solar mansions for Lu Yang = Luh-ch'ing.

Esther 2:16 "So Esther was taken unto king Ahasueus into his house royal in the tenth month which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign."

The keeping of the 50 year jubile must have counted from the first year the foundation of the temple was laid in 520 BC. The fall of Jerusalem, if in 591 BC would be September 7, 591 BC, the seventh day of the fifth lunar month as the Bible states, rather than the solar eclipse in May 28, 585 BC. The Chinese eclipse for 591 BC was in the sixth month from February on the 40th day. Thus the Chinese 40th day in the sixth month is September 7, 591 BC. There can be no solar eclipse on the seventh day of the lunar month. Then the captivity counted from 585 BC is suspect. The solar eclipse May 28, 585 BC cannot be the sun darkening when Jerusalem was taken. These are totally different events. The sun was darkened for three hours when Jesus was on the cross.

The sun must have been darkened in the same way when Jerusalem was taken. A sun miracle, not an eclipse. On the seventh day of the lunar month, not the first. The sun may have been moved around the earth at the speed of light, thus the sun would be darkened. Then the sun would give no light to earth - time is standing still at the sun - and take one hour to complete a circuit around the earth. Thus, the September 7, 591 BC solar eclipse in China on day 40 may have counted from the previous lunar month. 30 days plus the 9th day plus one day adjustment to the Hebrew lunar month = 40 days. Moreover, the 30th year at the beginning of Ezekiel must be the 30th year of 50 of the jubile and be 610 BC. Then the reigns of the kings of Judah from then come to 591 BC as described in Ezekiel.

Then the eclipse Thales predicted may be the same event in Israel and rather be September 7, 591 BC at the battle of Halys. Then the May 28, 585 BC eclipse may not have been recorded and the September 7, 591 BC one hour darkness very much more likely recorded as Thale's eclipse. Nevertheless, the May 28, 585 BC total eclipse in the afternoon does match the description at the battle of Halys. However, the total eclipse barely reaches Turkey in NASA's eclipse canon. Then, possibly Thales eclipse at the Battle of Halys was the sun miracle of September 7, 591 BC and the solar eclipse of May 28, 585 BC was not recorded.

Ezekiel 29:1 "In the tenth year, in the tenth month, in the twelfth day of the month, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
29:2 Son of man, set thy face against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and prophesy against him, and against all Egypt:
29:3 Speak, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon that lieth in the midst of his rivers, which hath said, My river is mine own, and I have made it for myself."

This dragon may be the same dinosaur as Ogopogo.

Ezekiel 29:11 "No foot of man shall pass through it, nor foot of beast shall pass through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty years."

Ezekiel 29:17 "And it came to pass in the seven and twentieth year, in the first month, in the first day of the month, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
29:18 Son of man, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon caused his army to serve a great service against Tyrus: every head was made bald, and every shoulder was peeled: yet had he no wages, nor his army, for Tyrus, for the service that he had served against it:
29:19 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will give the land of Egypt unto Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon; and he shall take her multitude, and take her spoil, and take her prey; and it shall be the wages for his army."

Ezekiel 30:1 "The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
30:2 Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Howl ye, Woe worth the day!
30:3 For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen.
30:4 And the sword shall come upon Egypt, and great pain shall be in Ethiopia, when the slain shall fall in Egypt, and they shall take away her multitude, and her foundations shall be broken down."

Ezekiel 32:7 "And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light.
32:8 All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee, and set darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord GOD."

The 50th year = the destruction of Jerusalem. The 10th year = 50 more years plus 10 years = Friday December 8, 531 BC (Like Hanukkah December 12, 164 BC) or Sunday January 7, 530 BC.

King King, "His first year was ting-sze (54th of cycle 60 = 543 BC) In his 13th year, in the spring, a star issued from the constellation Woo-neu (Note "the widow" four stars, about the middle of Capricorn"). In the 10th month, duke P'ing of Tsin died."
The Chinese Classics, the Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.165

The sun normally is in Capricorn in the tenth month of December (December is Latin for ten). Thus, Capricorn is not visible when the sun is in Capricorn. Thus, the sun should be on the other side of earth and earth in a reverse orbit for this new star in Capricorn to be visible. If the widow constellation was connected to sun miracles, it could mean that the emperor was killed, therefore his wife became a widow.

From 543 BC his 13th year = 531 BC = year 10 of Ezekiel = the same 10th month the duke P'ing of Tsin died, perhaps on the omen of a sun miracle.

Ezekiel 29:12 "And I will make the land of Egypt desolate in the midst of the countries that are desolate, and her cities among the cities that are laid waste shall be desolate forty years: and I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse them through the countries.
29:13 Yet thus saith the Lord GOD; At the end of forty years will I gather the Egyptians from the people whither they were scattered:"

40 years from 531 BC, the 10th year of cycle 50 from 1241 BC = the 50th year of cycle 50, 491 BC. Nevertheless, the cycle of 50 was recalculated from the end of the 70 years of captivity in 521 BC.

Pharoah Amasis II reigned from 570 BC to 526 BC when the Persians took Egypt. Thus, the destruction of Egypt soon after this 530 BC, from which Egypt never fully recovered.

The 27th year from 541 BC = 514 BC = the death of Cyrus, when Cambyses II began to rule, who invaded Egypt.

Cyrus granted the construction of the temple of Jerusalem about 521 BC. Construction was stopped about this 515 BC, to be resumed in 507 BC = 500 years to Jesus' birth in 7 BC.

Then Darius ruled 32 years from 509 BC to 477 BC.

The context speaks years from the captivity of Jehoiachin, 11 years before Zedekiah was captured and Jerusalem fell. Jerusalem did fall on the seventh day of the seventh month. However, Egypt did not fall untill after the death of Amasis II in 526 BC.

The Sothis Calendar and the 40 missing minutes

The Egyptian Sothis calendar was based on a 365 day year with no February 29 leap year. The first day of the Sothis cycle was the first appearing of the star Sirius at 4 AM which almost always was July 16. This was the product of precession and this Sothis calendar. So July 16, 4157 BC would be the first day. Then 365 X 4 years later, 1460 years later, the cycle would begin again July 16, 2737 BC. There were five days after 360 days that were the Dog days of Sothis. Thus, the calendar had backed up to the first of the five days holiday July 21, 2757 BC in 1440 years. The Egyptian calendar may have originally been 12 base = duodecimal. Thus 1440 years were simply 100 duodecimal times ten = 12 X 12 X 10. If we compute the missing minutes of half a reverse orbit we get 24 hours or 1440 minutes.

If one half reverse orbit is 180 days, then (365.25/180) X 24 X 60 = 1460 minutes. The same amount of minutes as there are years in a sothis cycle. The first half reverse orbit must have 1420 minutes or 23 hours 40 minutes. The second half reverse orbit of 180 days must have 24 hours 20 minutes of sped up orbit. The Missing Day Story calculations are similar. The first half orbit of 188 days; (365.24/188) X 24 X 60 = 1400 minutes = 23 hours 20 minutes.

Then there are 40 minutes missing from 24 hours to Joshua's Long Day. The second half reverse orbit of 177.5 days; (365.2422/175.5) X 24 X 60 = 1481 minutes, 24 hours 41 minutes. 1400 minutes plus 1480 minutes = 2881 minutes = 2880/60 = 48 hours. Thus there are two days of 48 hours less that reverse orbit year. 48 hours missing time. 23 hours 20 minutes missing time from the first half orbit. This leaves the 40 minutes missing time in the missing day story. Then 24 hours 40 minutes missing time in the second half reverse orbit. Thus there would be 365 days instead of 367 days in a reverse orbit year leaving no evidence.

Then there can be a net of 48 hours elapsed time of the sun standing still in the sky to leave no net missing time. -12 hours sudden sunrise, sun travel 180° west, at the fall of Jericho February 17, 1241 BC, +60 hours August 24, 1241 BC as the sun rose in the west, stood still in the sky 24 hours and set in the east = 5 X 180° the sun must revolve east. -12 hours August 25, 1241 BC as the sun traveled 180° west, +12 hours February 15, 1240 BC as the sun stood still in the sky for 12 hours travelling 180° east. 48 hours missing time countered by 48 hours elapsed time leaving no net missing time and no evidence. This sothis cycle was from 2741 BC - 1460 years to 1281 BC. Or from July 16, 2737 BC to July 17, 1281 BC = 1456 years because the cycle backed up to the appearing of Sirius one day earlier, July 17 instead of July 16.

Sirius does not first appear early in the morning on the exact same date every year. Sirius is a binary star with an elliptical orbit of 15 arc seconds, covering a 20 earth to sun distance, taking 50.9 years to complete. Sirius while the brightest star in the sky - see image - is the less massive as its elusive companion so it moves the most. So 25 years later Sirius would first appear a day before or after it had appeared 25 years previous, July 16 or 17. The 15 second difference can mean the difference of a day. Earth moves 4 minutes worth a day. The new Sothis cycle began July 17 1281 BC - that year my calculations show Sirius appeared later, thus July 17 as expected. Thus no affect on this important date.

However, Sirius's elliptical orbit of 15 arc seconds down and 15 arc seconds east can make the difference whether its first appearing was July 16 or July 17.

The star in the east that guided the wise men to Jesus in Matthew 2

Arcturus is the only star mentioned by name in the Bible.

Psalm 147:4 "He telleth the number of the stars, and calleth them all by their names."

"The scholarly consensus, based on Josephus' Antiquities of the Jews is that Herod died at the end of March, or early April of 4 BC."
- "As for the other Matthias who had stirred up the sedition, he (Herod) had him burned alive along with some of his companions. And on that same night there was an eclipse of the Moon. But Herod's illness became more and more severe."

This eclipse was rather September 15, 5 BC after the priest performed his duties on the day of Atonement. Herod's sons began to reign in 4 BC - hardly likely if Herod was still alive. Then if Jesus was born September 13, 7 BC, then when the wisemen came in September 5 BC, Joseph fled the same night into Egypt before Herod saw he was mocked of the wisemen and Herod must have killed all the boy's under two in Bethlehem almost immediately that September 15, 5 BC. Thus Herod knew from the wisemen that Arcturus first appeared overhead at midnight September 13, 7 BC and killed all the children 2 and under in Bethlehem in September 15, 5 BC.

Hosea 11:1 "When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt."

Matthew 2:12 "And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.
2:13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.
2:14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:
2:15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.
2:16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men."

Jacob went down into Egypt at the second year of famine. This should be Friday April 1, 2307 BC. Thus Israel went into Egypt 2300 years before the birth of Jesus in 7 BC, and Israel came out of Egypt on March 30, 1281 BC, 1270 years before Joseph took Jesus back to Nazareth in 4 BC when Herod died.

Luke 2:39 "And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth."

Herod died in 4 BC and Jesus' birth may have been in 7 BC. Then Joseph and Mary may have lived in Bethlehem from 7 BC to 5 BC and Jesus may have been two years old when the wisemen came to Jesus to worship him. Arcturus may have been the star of the east of Bethlehem. Arcturus pointed like a handle on the Big Dipper to the seasons of the year. Then the sun miracle in September 13, 7 BC would mean the sun was on the other side of earth and the stars marking the seasons opposite from the normal September night sky. The sun would move from Virgo in September to Pisces that night September 13, 7 BC. Then in August/September 5 BC Arcturus would rise in the east at sunset and pass above Bethlehem at midnight. Then the wise men may have read Job 38 and followed Arcturus.

They may have observed a sun miracle perhaps on Jesus' birth September 13, 7 BC. Then in August/September Arcturus would rise in the east at sunset and point straight up at midnight. Then Arcturus could be the star in the east. Perhaps they followed Daniel's prophesy and knew the year Jesus would be born and the sign. Then they arrived at Jerusalem, following Arcturus. Then the wisemen may have found Jesus in Joseph's home in Bethlehem.

Matthew 2:1 "But after Jesus had been born in Bethlehem of Judea, in the days of Herod the king, behold, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem,
2:2 saying: Where is he that has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star at its rising, and have come to worship him."

Matthew 2:7 "Then Herod having secretly called the Magi, inquired of them strictly the time at which the star appeared;"

Matthew 2:9 "When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw rising in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
2:10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy."

Thus Jesus must have been two years old when the wisemen came.

Thus in:

Job 38:32 "Canst thou make mazzaroth appear in its season? Or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?"

Mazzeroth must be the zodiac. The sun appears in each month in each sign of the zodiac. However, if the sun is moved to the other side of earth, the sign is 180° away that day, and the signs appearing in reverse as earth is in a reverse orbit.

Arcturus would point straight up at midnight in the reverse orbit of August/September 7 BC - September 5 BC. The Big Dipper and Arcturus normally point straight down at midnight in September.

The seasons of Mazzaroth, the zodiac, would appear in different signs of the zodiac when there was a sun miracle. Arcturus, the handle of the Big Dipper, would point to the new signs of the zodiac in the seasons. Nevertheless, there may have been a sun miracle on the day of Jesus' birth, perhaps September 12. 7 BC. The eclipse record before Herod's death in 4 BC may have been a record of a sun miracle at the lunar eclipse of the night of September 15, 5 BC = 2 AM September 16, 5 BC Israel time. The September 15, 5 BC fits the accounts better than the lunar eclipse in the morning of March 13, 4 BC. The Sign of Ahaz may have been a sudden sunset perhaps March 20, 717 BC. Perhaps there is a parallel between Ahaz and Herod.

"and your good judgments you explained to him to..in eternal light, and you made him for a first born son..like him, to be a prince and a ruler in all your inhabited world. The crown of the heavens, and the glory of the clouds you have placed on him and the angel of your peace in his congregation..righteous rules, as a father to his son..his love, your soul cleaves to..for in them you have placed your glory.."
The Dead Sea Scrolls, Study Edition, p.731

Perhaps there was a sun miracle at the lunar eclipse March 13, 4 BC as well as at September 15, 5 BC. Jesus would be two and a half years old by Herod's death in March 30, 4 BC.

Job 29:18 "Then I said, I shall die in my nest, and I shall multiply my days as the sand."

The word for sand is "Hol" which is the word for the Phoenix who laid an egg in its nest every 500 years by legend. The Japanese call the Phoenix the Ho. The Chinese describe the song or the Phoenix as P'o, P'o.

Job 39:26 "Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south?
39:27 Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?"

The word for hawk means brilliancy and flashing speed. The word for eagle means vulture or griffin. The Chinese said of the phoenix or dragon that it was too brilliant to look at, that it moved with tremendous speed. The griffin is also a name for phoenix.

"The people were dissatisfied with the sun, and thought they would make a new one. They appointed Coyote to be the sun. Whenever he saw married women commit adultry or young women fornicate, he would call and let all the people know. He came so near the earth people were almost burned. They deposed him, and put Red-Shafted Flicker in his place. Later on the latter laid an egg, which was changed into the present-day sun."
Teit, the Shuswap, Coyote as the Sun, p.738

Thus the legend of the sun's rebirth from an egg may go back tens of thousands of years to China. Thus the legend may have been carried from China by witnesses of sun miracles who then crossed the Bering Sea about 14,000 years ago.

The following also describe a long night of the sun revolving around the earth standing on the other side of earth:

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."

The following may help in finding the date of Jesus' birthday:

Isaiah 7:14 "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
7:15 Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.
7:16 For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that thou abhorrest shall be forsaken of both her kings."

Thus Jesus born perhaps September 12 or September 13, 7 BC would be two and a half years old when Herod died March 31, 4 BC when Joseph and Mary returned to Israel to Nazareth.

Hoseah 11:1 "When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt."

The sign of Ahaz may have been a sign of Jesus' birth in 717 BC, 710 years before Jesus was born.

The 400 years of slavery promised to Abraham's seed

Nehemiah 13:6 "But in all this time was not I at Jerusalem: for in the two and thirtieth year of Artaxerxes king of Babylon came I unto the king, and after certain days obtained I leave of the king:"

Thus Nehemiah cleansed the temple in the 32nd year 446 BC, 440 years before the birth of Christ in 7 BC. Also, in 442 BC in the first year of Duke Tao a comet appeared.
The Grand Scribe's Records, Volume 1, p.171.

The Chinese often changed emperor's when there was a sun miracle: "Now having entered the Pass, he has taken no wealth nor slept with any woman of Ch'in. This shows that his mind is not set upon small matters. I have had a man observe his aeromantic signs, and they are always in the form of dragons or tigers appearing in all five colors. This is the aeromantic sign of a Son of Heaven. Set upon him quick, do not miss the chance."
The Grand Scribes Records, Volume 1, p.190.

Then this comet may be the dragon and there may have been a sun miracle while Nehehiah was still in Jerusalem. This 442 BC is 300 years before the sun miracle in 141 BC. This may have been the sun miracle that gave Malachi the inspiration to write about in:

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."

Malachi may have been written about the year of the Jubile in 420 BC. There may have been several sun miracles in the year of the Jubile: "Pliny the Elder wrote in year 77, 470 BC, that a comet of Cerastes type (like a crescent moon) appeared when the Greeks fought the final battle at Salamis."
Cometography: a catalog of comets By Gary W. Kronk, p.2.

Thus there may have been a sun miracle at the time of the Jubile in 470 BC. The comet may have been the dragon, the glory of God, which appeared when there was a sun miracle. And this sun miracle may have been the day of "light and gladness" in Esther 8:16. The historian Diordorus Siculus wrote about 100 BC that during the 102 olympiad in 368 BC (776 BC - 408 years = 368 BC; (370 BC was the Jubile):

"When Alchisthenes was Archon of Athens...there was seen in the heavens during the course of many nights a great blazing torch which was named from its shape a flaming beam."
"At any rate this torch had such brilliancy, they report, and its light such strength that it cast shadows on the earth similar to those cast by the moon."
Cometography: a catalog of comets By Gary W. Kronk, p.4.

368 BC was 400 years before Jesus' sacrifice when King Heen began his reign in China. "In King Heen's 4th year, in the summer, in the 4th month, on the day keah-yin, we removed our capital..In King Heen's 5th year, it rained peih stones in Ch'ing. Some ground there suddenly became longer by 100 cubits and more, and higher by a cubit and a half..It rained millet in Ts'e."
The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.171.

Day keah-yin = 51. June 3, 365 BC = Pentecost, 50th day from Passover, in Israel. With earth in a reverse orbit meteor showers like the peih disk and like millet would be expected. Earthquakes and ground movement would also be expected.

The dragon to the Chinese was very bright and hard to look at.

Jaddua was made High Priest in 370 BC at the jubile and is the last High Priest mentioned in the Old Testament. The High Priest is the only one who can enter the Holiest of Holies in the Temple on the day of Atonement.

Nehemiah 12:11 "And Joiada begat Jonathan, and Jonathan begat Jaddua."

400 years from Jaddua to Jesus in 30 AD when he fulfilled Isaiah 61 on when he stood up to read on the first day of the seventh month. This may be the parallel to the same 400 years the Children of Israel were slaves in Egypt before the Exodus out of Egypt by Moses. There are likewise 400 years from Alexander the Great conquering Judea in 333 BC to the destruction of Judea in 70 AD and the escape of the Christians to Pella. Pharaoh Ahmose I was supposed to reign from 1550 BC. But because the end of the 1460 year sothis ended at the end of pharaoh Merneptah's reign was supposed to be 1205 BC; then Ahmose I should reign from 1665 BC. Thus with about 15 more years further back, this 18th dynasty of Ahmose may have begun in 1680 BC to begin the 400 years of slavery prophesied to Abraham.

"Ahmose ended totally the Hequa Shasu hegemony in 1532 BC."
Behind the Bible, p.25

"Amenhotep I appears to have nearly finished preparations for a sed festival, or even begun celebrating it; but Amenhotep I's reign is usually given only 21 years and a sed festival traditionally cannot be celebrated any earlier than a ruler's 30th year. "
Wikipedia

This date 1607 BC is in the middle of this discrepancy.

The Egyptian chronology is 76 years back from Pharaoh Merneptah in 1205 BC to the Exodus 1281 BC. All pharaohs before Merneptah must be dated 76 years further back. 76 years back from 1532 BC is 1607 BC.

"In his (VIII Emperor Yung-Ke.) 1st year, which was keah-seuh (11th of cycle 60, = 1606 BC, when he came to the throne, he dwelt in Poh. In his 12th year, he died.
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.131

There may have been a sun miracle in this very same 1607 BC, 1600 years to Jesus' birth that was taken as an omen both by the Chinese and the Egyptians. Likewise the Chinese emperor died in his 12th year:

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

Luke 2:49 "And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?"

The beginning of the Shang dynasty in China appears to begin with a sun miracle. T'ang came to the throne in year cycle 60 supposed 1557 BC. However, 120 years are missing. So the sun miracle to begin the Shang dynasty must have been in 1680 BC = 400 years before the Exodus in 1281 BC.

A radio carbon date of 3650 BP, (BP = 1950 AD) = 1700 BC, for the palace foundations at Yen-shih, was T'ang's first capital, the first ruler of the Shang dynasty. See Ancient Chinese Warfare, Chapter 7 Shang Capitals, p.122 Note 15. Thus, T'ang's first year equals the first year of 400 years of Hebrew slavery in Egypt, 1680 BC to 1281 BC. This is the same time of turmoil in Egypt at a time of drought.

From the Pharaoh Ahmose I, not in 1550 BC but 76 years earlier 1630 BC. From 1680 BC, to the Exodus in 1281 BC is 400 years the Israelites were in slavery.

Radiation is said to vary, thus carbon dating to vary. I believe radiation does not vary. The difference of 76 years in these Egyptian dates is not from a variation in radiation but from an 76 year error in calculating Egyptian chronology.

The eruption of the Santorini volcano is carbon dated to 1630 BC, but archaeoligically dated to 1500 BC. The 130 year difference may correctly date pharaoh Ahmose 130 years before 1550 BC to 1680 BC.

From David anointed boy king in 1097 BC, less seven years for the queen Athaliah, to the destruction of the temple in 591 BC is 500 years. Then 70 years captivity. From the completion of the second temple in February 10, 504 BC to Jesus' birth in 7 BC is 500 years. Or from David's first year as King in 1084 BC, less seven years for the queen Athaliah, is 500 +70 years before the second temple was finished in 504 BC, making 1070 years, less the 70 years of captivity, 1000 years of David to Jesus' birth in 7 BC. From Malachi in about 400 BC to Jesus birth in 7 BC is 400 years. There were no books written after Malachi. God was silent in this period of darkness till Jesus came. Thus 400 years of darkness from the jubile 470 BC to the coming of the Messiah, Jesus when he fulfilled Isaiah 61 on the jubile August 29, 29 AD.

Thus the land saw a great light that day. Then the Sojourn in Egypt was 1026 years from Friday, April 1, 2307 BC in the 430th sothis year from 2737 BC, with 400 years slavery from Pharaoh Ahmose I in 1680 BC to the Exodus on March 30, 1281 BC. Thus the seven years famine from 2309 BC, 49 year cycles to 1281 BC which would begin year 49, a year of release, a jubile. Thus also, Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD was the 49th year counting from the conquest of Joshua in 1281 BC. Then 33 AD would also be the resurrection year and a jubile year just like the Exodus.

Ahmose was radiocarbon dated about 1556 BC. The Ebers Papyrus records the heliacal rising of Sothis on the 9th, 3rd month, 3rd season as happening on the 9th year of the reign of Amenhotep I. This could be 9 Shemu II. Even this is the exact date if we add 76 years further back for Amenhotep I to 1600 BC. Thus the inscription should read 9 Shemu II not 9 Shemu III. This would give the first year of Ahmose 1634 BC. If this date was taken from Memphis, this would place it about 20 more years further back, and Ahmose to 1650 BC.

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 last prophet of the Old Testament was Malachi. There are about 400 years from Malachi to Jesus. Thus, the significance of the 400 years to point to the light of Jesus in a period of darkness.

The night of great darkness may have been a se'nnight night. A night of seven nights lasting +84 hours, 7 X 12 hours, as in the three days of darkness in Egypt of Exodus. This may have been a sign of the darkness before Jesus' resurrection. The darkness we knew before we met with Jesus.

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."

"In the sixteenth year, 369 BC, peach trees blossomed in winter."
"In the eighteenth year, 367 BC, it rained metal pellets in Yueh-yang."
The Grand Scribe's Records. Volume I, p.107

"In his sixth year, sin hae = 48 of cycle 60 = 368 BC, the 1st year of king Hwuy-ching of Leang - the princes of Kung of Han and Ching of Chaou removed the duke Hwan of Tsin to T'wan-lew - after this we have nothing more about the affairs of Tsin."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.170.

A the beginning, of exact year 368 BC = the passover = 400 years to the day of Jesus' crucifixion. There must have been an omen, sun miracle, whereupon duke Hwan of Tsin was removed.

"sin hae" 48 may be a double date. Year 48 = 368 BC. Day 48 = April 17 = the full moon and passover = Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD. Darkness at noon Israel, sunset China, at the passover = the three hours of darkness when Jesus' was on the cross, from the sixth hour = noon Israel, till the ninth hour = 3 PM Israel. Thus the emphasis on the number 48.

"sin hae" 48 appears as the date of a recorded solar eclipse in 505 BC. One year later, in 504 BC, day 48 was Adar 3, February 10, 504 BC, when the second temple was finished. The record was not of the solar eclipse, the record was a sun miracle the day the second temple was finished.

The keatze in Hwan's third year, from 718 BC, also appears as a double date. 716 BC is year one of cycle 60 from 2636 BC. September 23, 716 BC = total darkness in Israel and China when the sun must return, keatze day = day one of cycle 60, seventh month.

Day 29 of cycle 60, 7th month, 3rd year, = August 23, 716 BC = the 17th day of the 7th month = Jesus' birth, 17th day of the 7th month, September 12, 7 BC. Darkness may appear like a solar eclipse in China, which only occurs on a new moon, = keatze day, day 1 of the lunar month. August 23, 717 BC is about the same day of the year as Joshua's long day, August 24, 1241 BC.

The sun in China this August 23, 716 BC, may be darkened = the 17th day of the 7th month to foretell Jesus' birth. That the Chinese thought was a solar eclipse.

Job 3:2 "And Job spake, and said,
3:2 Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said, There is a man child conceived.
3:4 Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it."

Hui of Wei reigned from 370 BC, Hsuan f Ch'u reigned from 369 BC. King Hsuan won a major battle in 369 BC. Battles were often fought and won at the time of sun miracles. Sun miracles were seen as a sign for a change of King, a time for rebellion. Kings often began a reign a the time of a sun miracle. The sun standing still in the sky could cause peach trees to blossom in winter. Meteor showers may be expected a year after a sun miracle when earth travelled in the path of asteroids as earth was now in a different orbit. Thus 368 BC = 400 years before Jesus' sacrifice in April 3, 33 AD.

Chinese records of Sun Miracles





"In his 10th year, the five planets went out of their courses. In the night, stars fell like rain. The earth shook. The E and Loh became dry."

Another translation: "In the 10th year of Emperor Gui of Xia the five planets moved in criss-cross fashion; in the middle of the night stars fell like rain and the earth quaked."

- Chinese emperor Kwei's 10th year was 1698 BC: If the sun moved 180°,the planets must move with it to appear in the sky like normal. (5 stars are the 5 visible planets) Then each planet must have been individually moved, the outer planet Saturn at one third the speed of light. After the planets moved the 180° the planets must stop and reverse their orbits. For the planets to appear in the night sky at the time they normally would, the outer planets must move very fast - Saturn a 1.2 million mph and the inner planets the same speed as normal just in reverse. This because planets earth was catching up with in a normal orbit would be distancing from in earth's reverse orbit necessitating extreme speeds of the outer planets to maintain the semblance of normality.

Likewise when the sun moved back half a year or a year or multiples thereof later, all the planets would be 180° away from where they should be and move 180° around the earth with the sun when it moved back, always staying in their same relative position to one another. Thus the planets would appear in their season the same distance from the sun as they would have had in the reverse orbit. Then the background stars would be totally different and the reverse action against the stars very quick and striking and the stars would not mark the normal movement of the planets. Thus, the planets would go out of course. A long night in China, a long day in the west, would make it possible to see a 360° night sky including all 5 visible planets.

Also, the five visible planets may appear as they are moved out of the way of the revolving sun during the sun miracle. Half of the stars of the sky would repeat before the dawn. All the planets must reverse their orbits against the stars to appear in their season as if normal. The visible planets must move 180° each time the sun moved. If the planets did not reverse, did not move 180°, their appearing in the night sky would be very different. This observation of "the planets going the wrong way" and Wen-tze: "the five planets will lose their order" is evidence for these reverse orbits and perhaps evidence that at times the planets did not maintain their order. That is at times, after moving 180° with the sun they reversed so as to appear at the same O'clock time in their season.

Yes, the Chinese would have noticed if the planets moved 180°. They did notice and they did record it. Just as they did on Joshua's long day as seen from China. The planets appeared to stand still in the long sunset as they moved 180° from Scorpio to Taurus during king Wan's dream. To them both nights the planets were going the wrong way.

The E and Loh were rivers. That they dried up during earth's reverse orbit is to be expected. The weather change on earth could be from triggered solar activity as well as the 8 minute shorter day in the reverse orbit. "stars fell like rain" could be from meteors now in earth's path. The character for earth means "earth in correlation to heaven", that is, this was not a normal earthquake. The emperor Fah died in his seventh year and mount T'ae shook, just before Kwei became emperor about 1708 BC. Possibly even that far back God moved the sun every seven years for the Children of Israel in Egypt. The Egyptians believed when there was an earthquake their god smote both hands together striking the earth. That is, they believed in an outer force such as a sun miracle to cause an earthquake.

The moon must move 180° also, who's gravity should cause earthquakes, flooding and volcanic activity. Like sun miracles can be associated with flooding in Yao's 73rd year, 2244 BC.

Volcanic activity can be associated with volcanic Crete and its mount Ida in the story of Phaethon. The recent fires in Greece, August 2007, following drought and a heat wave may have been similar to the fires of Phaethon perhaps during the seven years famine in Egypt and region 2313 BC to 2307 BC. Drought sometimes followed a sun miracle such as followed the same set of sun miracles in China when Yao was made emperor. In Yao's first year the sun stood still for nine days. Then he sent his astronomers to determine the stars marking the seasons that could only mark the seasons in a reverse orbit that year.

Then "in his (Yao's) seventh year there was a k'e-lin, unicorn."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.112

Yao's first year 2315 BC = Joseph's first year appointed governor of Egypt = the fulfillment of Joseph's second dream of the sun and moon and 11 stars in Genesis 37.

"In his 15th year, the chief of the K'eu-sow came to make his submission."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.112

The seven years of plenty in Egypt began in 2315 BC. Then the seven years of famine began in 2308 BC and ended in 2301 BC. There may have been a sun miracle to mark the end of the famine in Egypt in 2301 BC. Thus, 14 years from 2315 BC = the 15th year of Yao. A sun miracle may be taken as an omen to make submission to the emperor.

The unicorn was very like one of the four beasts before God's throne. Thus a sun miracle in Yao's seventh year perhaps to begin the seven years famine in Egypt.

Even the day may appear normal and still earth flow out of or into a reverse orbit. If the sun moved 180° east near the summer or winter solstice, such as January 2240 BC, and earth's orbit shifted 40° counterclockwise at the same time the stars would appear to travel 2 times faster west on the night side of earth, yet the sun would appear to move like it normally does east to west with just a slight variation depending on where you the observer are on earth. Thus the sun can move 180° around the earth and earth flow into or out of a reverse orbit with very little noticeable difference from a normal day. Only, stars may seem "to fall". Nevertheless, the most reliable records of sun miracles depict the sun and moon moving up or down to keep earth in the same season, rather than earth shifting.





"(In the 29th year of the emperor Kwei = 1680 BC = 400 years Israel slaves in Egypt to the Exodus in 1281 BC) "the forces of Shang took Koo, 3 suns appeared together in the sky."

- Perhaps the sun moved 180° on Kwei's long night then 180° or 540° 19 years later on the same Egyptian calendar date. Sometimes there appear to be three suns in the sky when the sun is at the horizon, called sun dogs. See this photo of sun dogs from Guy Mackie in Saskatchewan. I have seen clouds glow at different spots 15° apart simultaneously in winter. This picture by James Edgar in the Royal Canadian Astronomical Journal for February 2008 in winter at -19° C shows what appear to be three suns at sunset. Likewise, the sun standing still at the horizon could produce sun dogs for a long duration.

Often sun dogs are seen in winter at -6° Celcius or so. Such as the two pictures of sun dogs in Jack Newton's book "A thin veil of high-altitude cirrus or cirrostratus clouds can provide the perfect conditions for solar halos and sun dogs. Sometimes brilliant enough to rival the Sun's brightness, sundogs are seen only near the horizon." Both these pictures were taken at a horizon of snow. This would be rare at the latitude that China is on.





"In his (emperor Kin's 1731 BC - 50 years, a jubile, before the 400 years slavery to the Exodus in 1281 BC) 8th year, there was an inauspicious (unfortunate) portent in the sky -- 10 suns appeared together. That year emperor Kin died". This 1611 BC must be 120 years earlier, as all China dates before 900 BC = 1731 BC when empero Kin died. Also, 1731 BC is a 49 year jubile, as is Joshua's conquest 1241 BC, to Jesus' crucifixion April 3, 33 AD. The record is for 42 of cycle. Since 1731 BC is 6 of cycle 60, 42 may refer to the day of the 10 suns, the day the sun stood still for 10 days. ji si = 6, yi si = 42.

There is a gap of 60 years in this Hea dynasty. This year 42 of cycle 60, 1755 BC instead of year 6 of cycle 60, 1731 BC = 24 years. 60 years less 24 years = 36 years. This leaves a 36 years gap sometime after emperor Yu in 2167 BC and before emperor Kin.

The date 42 may apply to the day instead of the year. The full moon = passover, day 42 of cycle 60, Friday, February 26, 1731 BC or Tuesday, April 27, 1731 BC. Jesus was crucified on the full moon on the passover, Friday, April 3, 33 AD.

The word for inauspicious may also mean the season of Fall. However, the Chinese often changed emperors when there was a sun miracle. Meaning this could be the reason emperor Kin died that year. In 2315 BC the sun stood still so Yao had an archer shoot at it 9 times whereupon it moved again. There are 10 days to the Chinese 10 day week. Thus a day lasting some 12 hours more may be recorded as the sun stood still for a long time just as their 10 day week is a long time. 12 X 144 years later the sun returned to the meridian in China in 163 BC. In 492 BC, in King King's 26th year from 518 BC, a azure green rainbow appeared.
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.167.

The rainbow around God's throne is described an azure green. The moon was recorded to have been eclipsed in Darius' 20th year in 491 BC when there was no lunar eclipse. The same year of King Jing's 26th year from 518 BC = 491 BC.

There is a tradition in the Fiji Islands of a long sunset. - Geocentricity Oceanic Mythology Roland B. Dixon 1916: (New Zealand Maori).

A noon sun on China would be a setting sun on the New Zealand Maori.

Dated to with sothis year 905, from 2777 BC to 1872 BC, which is in error and should be from the new sothis cycle beginning 2737 BC, 905 years to 1832 BC. Not the new moon December 1, 1834 BC, but 76 years further back, as all Egyptian dates should be, from 1872 BC = 1948 BC, the new moon, December 1, 1948 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."

This should be on the new moon. Thus December 1, 1834 BC was the new moon and 7 X 30 + 16 days later was the rising of Sirius July 16, 1833 BC. The Sothis cycle did not end in 1321 BC, but in 1281 BC. Thus, this date of December 1, 1834 BC is 40 years more recent.

www.biblemysteries.com/lectures/egypt.htm:
"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."

226 days back X 4 = 904 years back. Thus 2737 BC - 904 = 1833 BC. Rather the new moon December 1, 1834 BC. Then Pharaoh Unas must have reigned not from 2375 BC - 2345 BC, but 40 years later, from 2335 BC to the fourth year of famine in 2305 BC. The end of the sothis cycle was 1281 BC not 1320 BC. Thus all Egyptian dates should be 40 years more recent. Thus Unas must have reigned 30 years from 2337 BC to 2307 BC.

Egyptian dates should be 76 years more back matched to pharaoh. This due to the end of Sothis 1281 BC = death of Pharaoh Merneptah. So 1872 BC + 76 years = 1948 BC.

The sun stood still for 10 days in 1731 BC in Emperor Kin's 8th year in China. There could have been a sun miracle 100 years before in Egypt in 1832 BC, just as 1731 BC is 50 years before the 400 years of Israelite slavery in Egypt from 1681 BC.

"Sky rains, stars darken, The vaults quiver, earth's bones tremble, the planets stand still at seeing Unas rise as power,"
Most Ancient Days. A Biblical Reconstruction of Ancient History from Noah to Saul

This pyramid text of Pharaoh Unas may refer to a sun miracle when Unas came to power. This could be Yao's long day and the fulfillment of Joseph's second dream, April 2, 2315 BC.

Then Unas may have reigned from 2345 BC to 2305 BC, perhaps to die in the fifth year of famine. The next pharaoh Teti may have reigned from 2305 BC - 2283 BC. The next pharaoh Pepy I from 2281 BC - 2247 BC. Joseph would be 100 years old in 2247 BC. There was a sun miracle in China in Yao's 70th year in 2247 BC. The next pharaoh was Merenra from 2247 BC - 2238 BC. Joseph died 110 years old in 2237 BC. Pepy II reigned from 2237 BC - 2144 BC.

(Schaefer calculates Sirius would appear rather July 17, 2000 BC) See the Sothis Calendar.

Sun miracles marked the beginning of Yao's reign 2315 BC, the end of the Hea dynasty about 1677 BC, then the end of the Shang dynasty and the beginning of the Chow dynasty 1174 BC.





"His people have all become idle in his service, and will not assist him. They are saying 'When will the sun expire? We shall all perish with thee.'"
The Chinese Classics III, The Books of Shang, The speech of T'ang, p. 175.

That is, When shall there be a sun miracle and a change of dynasty?

"Yi Yin went again to observe the mighty Hsia where he learned from Mo Hsi that "the previous night the emperor had dreamed there was a sun in the west and a sun in the east. When the two suns engaged in combat, the western sun emerged victorious and the eastern sun was vanquished."..They made their advance into Hsia territory from the west."
Ancient Chinese Warfare, the Shang Dynasty, p.114>

T'ang (Shang dynasty) fought Kee (Hea dynasty): "At last, 1677 BC, after many misgivings T'ang took the field against his sovereign. There would be no doubt as to the result. Heaven and earth combined with men to show their detestation of the tyrant. Two suns fought in the sky. The earth shook. Mountains were moved from their strong foundations. Rivers were dried up. Kee was routed, and fled to the south to Ts'aou,.. Thus miserably ended the dynasty of Hea of 439 years." - 1675 BC. I have been told an early Egyptologist also found many references to two suns fighting and was at a loss to explain them. The 400 years of slavery of the Hebrews in Egypt was to begin 86 years later in 1679 BC. T'ang then wrote: "When will the sun expire? We will all perish with thee. Such is the course of the sovereign of Hea,"

T'ang ruled from 1677 BC to 1668 BC. Thus, there may have been a sun miracle in 1668 BC, 1700 years before Jesus was to be crucified.

Sun miracles: 1731 - 1698 - 1680 - 1677 BC times two or times four sun miracles in the reverse orbit years. They thought it was the end of the world, wouldn't you? Thus these sun miracles also visible in Egypt be a sign to the Children of Israel of the beginning of the 400 years of slavery counting from 1680 BC to their deliverance in 1281 BC.

"rivers dried up" - A weather change and an earth quake would be just what you would expect in a reverse orbit. Earth in a reverse orbit may be described as "Heaven and earth combined with men." "Such is the course" could be in reference to the falling zodiac, earth in a reverse orbit, previous 1677.
The Chinese Classics vol. III, The Books of Hea, p.171.

The two suns about 1677 BC may refer to the sun moving 180° around the earth. The three suns about 1680 BC to the sun moving 540° around the earth at the beginning of the 400 years of Hebrew slavery in Egypt. The two suns in 1178 BC may refer to the solar eclipse at sunset in China April 17, 1178 BC. The sun would then reappear at sunset. Thus the Chinese thought they saw two suns together.





It was written "how sun and moon were Wan and Woo" perhaps because of sun miracles in their lifetimes.

"Kaou-tsung was sacrificing to T'ang the Successful, when a pheasant flew up, and lighted on the ear of a tripod, and there crowed. Tsoo Ke lessoned the king on the subject, and made THE DAY OF THE SUPPLEMENTARY SACRIFICE OF KAOU TSUNG, and the INSTRUCTIONS TO KAOU-TSUNG."

The Chinese Classics, Preface to the Shoo King, p.7

The pheasant probably was the phoenix. The fact such a big thing was made of the day seems likely it was a sun miracle. This could have been on the anniversary of the first sun miracle in 1677 BC when T'ang became emperor. Thus a sun miracle one day later when the sun returned.





"Oh! it is difficult to rely on Heaven;- its appointments are not constant."
Chinese Classics, The Books of Shang, p.213

1750 BC. Perhaps a result of the recent sun miracles and earth reversals that had to do with God and Israel in Egypt. Nevertheless God's message in these sun miracles to the world was to point them to the sun of righteousness, the coming of Jesus.





"In his (emperor Te-sin's 1178 BC) 48th year, the E goat (spirit like animal - exciting wonder) - was seen. Two suns appeared together." The exciting E-goat could be the qilin the phoenix. There is the possibility this was a the solar eclipse of April 16, 1178 BC at sunset in China. However, the connection to the E goat either means they were so impressed they thought they saw the E goat, or it was a sun miracle and they saw an angel.

Perhaps they looked directly at the sun to see the angel of the sun.

Do not look at the sun or it will cause irreversible eye damage.

Perhaps the sun moved 180° day light lasting two days, 24 hours, like the sun when it stood still for Joshua. A similar sun miracle to Joshua's long day may have been associated with Woo (born about 1264 BC and became emperor 1174 BC when Woo was 90 years old).

"How illustrious were Wan and Woo!" Literally: How Sun and Moon were Wan and Woo! There may have been a sun miracle May 8, 1174 BC when Woo, Wu, was conquering China and was quoted by the Duke of Lu Yang when the setting sun reversed three solar mansions. The bright appointment of Heaven was in the 4th month, May 8, 1174 BC.





"In his 18th year, in the spring, in the 1st month, the king went to Loh, and settled the place of the tripods there. Phoenixes made their appearance, and a sacrifice was offered near the Ho."

This 18th year would be 1150 BC. Jephthah had the victory in Amon/Moab not 300 years after Moses had the victory but 3 X 30 years = 90 years from 1242 BC = 1152 BC.

"When king Woo made an end of Yin, the year was in Kang-yin (1169 BC) (1200 years to Jesus' crucifixion). Twenty-four years after, in the year kea-yin (1145 BC) (38 years = the years of Jesus to his crucifixion, to 1107 BC = 1100 years to Jesus' birth), the vases were finally placed in the city of Lo (the 18th year of Ching when the phoenixes appeared = a sun miracle). From that time to king Yew, were 257 years; - giving us in all 281 years. From sin-maou, the 1st year of Woo, to Kang-woo, the last year of Yew, were 292 years."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.158

These periods of 257 years and 281 years and 292 years are a bit off. Noteably, there were sun miracles pointing to Jesus' life, Jesus' birth and Jesus' sacrifice.

Judges 11:33 "And he smote them from Aroer, even till thou come to Minnith, even twenty cities, and unto the plain of the vineyards, with a very great slaughter. Thus the children of Ammon were subdued before the children of Israel"

To smite 20 cities would normally take more than 12 hours of daylight.

The first month of the year began December. The first month of spring began in January or February.

"When king Woo died, king Ching was still young, Spirit-like birds and phoenixes appeared; and the mysterious bean grew up" - The mysterious bean may be the calendar bean named thus by emperor Shun a thousand years before when phoenixes also appeared in the first month: "A kind of grass, moreover, grew on each side of the palace stairs. On the 1st day of the month, it produced 1 pod, and so on, every day a pod, until the 15th; while on the 16th on pod fell off, and so on, every day a pod, to the last day of the month.."

Then by the 16th day of the full moon the moon would be 180° away from the lunar mansion it was in the day before - still progressing forwards through the lunar mansions - only earth now falling backwards 1° a day in the reverse orbit. The grass growing on either side of the palace stairs may signify the moon moving 180° to the other side of heaven.

The period of the lunar month is 29.53 days. The time for one complete lunar orbit measuring the background stars is 27 days. If earth is sped up 48 hours a reverse orbit, so is the moon which tags along, about 4 hours sped up a lunar month.

However, with earth in a reverse orbit the moon is moving clockwise with earth, but counterclockwise in its orbit of earth. Thus, instead of 27 days to complete an orbit around the earth against the background stars, the moon may take 31 days.

The moon has to change its orbit around the earth when earth was in a reverse orbit of the sun for the lunar orbit to appear the same. There would still be 29.5 "days", that is sped up earth days of four hours to a lunar month.

A sideral year, earth's actual orbit period, is 366.24 days. In a reverse orbit, a sideral year is 364.24 days = 48 hours sped up orbit.

"Let the sunne goe so many degrees backe that the houres may be so many the fewer in the Kings diall. Which diall was set in the rope of the stairs that Ahaz had made."

Genesis 28:12 "And he dreamed, and behold a stair case set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it."

Thus, "the palace stairs" may be symbolic of the shadow of the sun retreating to the east.

Jacob would be 70 in this 2368 BC. Abraham born 2607 BC. Isaac born 2507 BC. Jacob born 2438 BC. Jacob would be 70 in 2368 BC.

"And Jacob left Beersheba to go to Haran in the first year of the second week of the forty-fourth jubilee.. and reached Luz..it is Bethel..and spent the night there because the sun had set."
The Dead Sea Scrolls Study Edition. Volume 1. p.25. Jub 27:19-21

Every 50 years there was a jubile. Counting from Adam: 44 X 50 = 2200 years. 2200 years + 2368 BC = 4568 BC. Adam born in year 800 Armenian Sothis. Back from 3907 BC 1460 years = 5367 BC. Forward 800 years = 4568 BC = Forty-four jubiles to 2368 BC. The second week. The passover was on the 14th day = the second week. 2368 BC = 2400 years to Jesus' sacrifice on the passover. The sun had set, perhaps a sun miracle that day.

Emperor Kuh perhaps from 2400 BC. Thus his 29th year or 32nd year would be 2368 BC. The blind men beat drums when there was a solar eclipse or sun miracle.

"Note: He was born with double rows of teeth; and had the virtue of a sage. He made blind men beat drums, and strike bells and sounding stones, at which phoenixes flapped their wings and gambolled."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.111.





Emperor Wu reigned 6 years from 1175 BC to 1169 BC. Then Emperor Ching probably reigned 35 years from 1169 BC to 1134 BC. Then in Ching's 18th year was 1150 BC.

K'elins wandered in the parks; phoenixes flew in the courtyards; king Ching took a lute, and sang: --
'The phoenixes fly
All around my hall
What virtue have I
So spirits to call?

'From the former kings
This influence comes;
Theirs the joy that rings
In the peoples homes.'

"In his 37th year, in the summer, in the fourth month, on the day yih-ch'ow, 2d of cycle, the king (Ching) died."
The Chinese Classics III, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.148.

Day 2 of cycle 60 in 1133 BC, of the fourth month from January, was the new moon April 28, 1133 BC. Then his 18th year would be 1153 BC.

This is an exact copy of the song recorded on Huangdi's sun miracle on the autumn equinox. Notice the same K'elin, unicorn of the sky, that Yao recorded in his 7th year that may have begun the seven years of famine in Egypt. - First character top right - see lin - unicorn. The sun and moon phoenixes were birds who carried the sun and moon 180° around the earth. The K'elins may be flaming deer who carried the planets 180° around the earth. The K'elins were running because they must move the planets at hundreds of millions of miles per hour. Perhaps the sun moved 180° and earth flowed out of or went into a reverse orbit of the sun in king Ching's 34th year, 1136 BC, when it rained gold.

This may have been the sun miracle that gave Jephthah the victory, in King Ching's 18th year = 100 of Heshbon from 1242 BC rather than year 300. Thus if emperor Wu reigned 12 years from 1174 BC, and the phoenixes in King Ching's 18th year, this is this 1144 BC. There are four beasts before the throne of God. One like a calf. This could be the unicorn of the Chinese. One like an eagle. This could be the phoenix. One like a lion. This could be the Chinese White Tiger. See Ezekiel 1 and Revelation 4.

Some More Chinese Sun Miracles





"In (King Jing's) 14nth year (504 BC) the Milky Way was not visible in the sky."
Chinese Classics, the Bamboo Book Annals.

In King Jing's 15th year there was a solar eclipse on day sin hai, day 48, February 16, 505 BC. The sun was 40% covered by the moon in China. Perhaps what was recorded was a sun miracle on sin hai, day 48, February 10, 504 BC the third day of Adar, the sixth year of Darius. Then King Jing's 14th year when the milky way was not visible was 505 BC.

Analysis of king Wan's Dream, king Woo and king Ching.





"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.





"Uncle E-ho, how illustrious were Wan and Woo! Carefully did they illustrate their virtue, till it rose brightly on high, and the fame of it was widely diffused here below. Therefore did God cause his favouring decree to light upon king Wan."
The books of Chow, Book XXVIII, Chinese Classics.

Literally: How Sun and Moon were Wan and Woo! There may have been a sun miracle June 1 1174 BC when Woo, = Wu, was conquering China and was quoted by the Duke of Lu Yang when the setting sun reversed three solar mansions.

Three hundred years after king Wan's birth, this portent, most certainly Joshua's long day, was still being talked about. The characters here of the sun and moon, translated illustrious, probably refer to what China observed when Joshua commanded the sun and moon to be still. Here the credit is given to God. You can see the character for Shangdi the same character for God used first by Shun to describe the "chief of the four mountains" in Shun's Canon.





"In his (emperor Te-sin's 1178 BC) 48th year, the E goat (spirit like animal - exciting wonder) - was seen. Two suns appeared together.&o; The exciting E-goat could be the qilin the phoenix. Perhaps they looked directly at the sun to see the angel of the sun. Do not look at the sun or it will cause irreversible eye damage. Perhaps the sun moved 180° day light lasting two days, 24 hours, like the sun when it stood still for Joshua. A similar sun miracle to Joshua's long day may have been associated with Woo (born about 1260 BC and became emperor over China 1174 BC). There may have been a sun miracle in the same month Wu receceived the mandate from heaven - May 1174 BC. "How illustrious were Wan and Woo!"





"In his 18th year, in the spring, in the 1st month, the king went to Loh, and settled the place of the tripods there. Phoenixes made their appearance, and a sacrifice was offered near the Ho." The first month of the year began December 12. The first month of spring January 11 or February 9. "When king Woo died, king Ching was still young..Spirit-like birds and phoenixes appeared; and the mysterious bean grew up" - The mysterious bean may be the calendar bean named thus by emperor Shun a thousand years before when phoenixes also appeared in the first month:

"A kind of grass, moreover, grew on each side of the palace stairs. On the 1st day of the month, it produced 1 pod, and so on, every day a pod, until the 15th; while on the 16th on pod fell off, and so on, every day a pod, to the last day of the month.." Then by the 16th day of the full moon the moon would be 180° away from the lunar mansion it was in the day before - still progressing forwards through the lunar mansions -

only earth now falling backwards 1° a day in the reverse orbit. The grass growing on either side of the palace stairs may signifiy the moon moving 180° to the other side of heaven.

Just 4 years before Woo began to reign in 1178 BC: "The E goat was seen. Two suns appeared together."





K'elins wandered in the parks; phoenixes flew in the courtyards; king Ching took a lute, and sang: --
'The phoenixes fly
All around my hall
What virtue have I
So spirits to call?

'From the former kings
This influence comes;
Theirs the joy that rings
In the peoples homes.'

This is an exact copy of the song recorded on Huangdi's sun miracle in his 20th year in the beginning of the year, perhaps January 26, 2636 BC - the day he started the 60 year cycle and the 60 day cycle. Thus there was an Egyptian sothis cycle of 1460 years from the phoenixes that appeared to Huangdi in his 20th year, day 1 of cycle 60, day 1 of the lunar month, January 26, 2636 BC and the phoenixes and two suns that appeared in 1178 BC.

Notice the same K'elin, unicorn of the sky, that Yao recorded in his 7th year. - First character top right - see lin - unicorn. This seventh year may be the seventh year of plenty in Egypt 2309 BC. Then the first year of plenty in Egypt for Joseph be the first year of Yao adjusted from 2357 BC - 2315 BC = 41 years to be 2315 BC.

The K'elins may be flaming deer, angels, who carried the planets 180° around the earth. The K'elins were running because they must move the planets at hundreds of millions of miles per hour. Perhaps the sun moved 180° and earth flowed out of or went into a reverse orbit. The first month of spring is January/February. Perhaps the sun moved 180° January 26, 2636 BC from the new moon from which days of 60 and years of 60 are counted from. Then the sun may have moved also in January 2657 BC in Huangdi's first year.

"In his 20th year, (2636 BC), brilliant clouds appeared. Note: The auspicious clouds was in this way: The vapours of the red quarter [the south] extended so as to join those of the green [the east]. In the red quarter were two stars, and the green, one; all of a yellow colour, which appeared when the heavens were clear and bright.. When the emperor was sitting in a boat on the Yuen-hoo, above its junction with the Lo, there came together phoenixes, male and female."
The Chinese Classics III, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p. 1.

An object moving from the east to the west may appear green in the east and red in the west according to relativity. Green and red colours were often recorded when there was a sun miracle. The sun phoenix and the moon phoenix were the angels that carried the sun and moon to the far side of the earth. Then the far side of the moon that we normally never see may have become visible. Even for the year or years of earth's reverse orbit the moon would show its far side the earth noramlly never sees. Every full moon would show the far side, which is far rougher, of the moon. This because of the moon's tidal lock with the moon's rotation would keep the far side of the moon facing earth while earth was in the reverse orbit.

Likewise, the sun would show the other side to earth the day God moved the sun to the other side of earth. Sun spots that were visible to earth would then be on the other side of the sun and not visible that day. New sun spots would be visible the day God moved the sun to the other side of earth.

Moreover, if the sun stood still in the sky such as for Joshua, the six day moon also would stay above the eastern horizon. Then for the next 24 hours, the moon would show 360° rotation even though the moon did not rotate. The moon rotates 360° every 27 days = facing the earth all the time of the 29.5 days of the lunar cycle. Simply moving the moon would mean not rotating the moon. Moon dust is fragile, so rotating the moon would leave a shift in lunar sand.

Thus, the moon should not change its rotation at all. When the sun and moon moved back 180°, the same side of the moon as seen from earth would appear. Simply because there is no net missing time, there is no change in the side of the moon facing earth when the moon moved back.

So those watching the first quarter moon on Joshua's long day would see the far side appear, then near side appear, then again the far side appear.

God would not need to adjust the rotation of the moon at all. The sun and moon must move back on the exact hour and second one year later. Thus, even though earth's orbit was sped up 48 hours, when the sun and moon moved back the normal side of the moon would again face the earth. Even the tidal lock of the moon would keep the far side facing the earth that reverse orbit year till the sun and moon moved back.

See the sun miracle account by the Aztecs - Historia general de las cosas de Nueva Espana, BK. VII, Chapter 2" "Then one of the gods came out running with a rabbit he came to wound in the face; this Tecutizcecatl; with it he darkened his face. He killed its brilliance. Thus it doth appear this day."

"to wound in the face" of the moon may mean earth saw the far side of the moon when the sun and moon moved to the other side of earth.

With the legend of emperor Yao who shot at the sun when it stood still in the sky, was the legend of princess Chang E. She rose to the sky and became the moon. She gave the moon the look of a rabbit. The full moon of Autumn is celebrated in her honour. That reverse orbit year Yao employed Ho and He to determin the stars, the full moon each month would display the far side that earth can only see when in a reverse orbit of the sun.

The seventh year of Yao, 2308 BC, when the unicorn appeared = phoenix, should be when princess Chang E was changed into the moon. The sun and moon perhaps both moving 180° around the earth = the earth would see the dark side of the moon.

Earth must see the dark side because to rotate the moon to show the same side to earth would have the same effect as stopping the earth's rotation. Thus the reason God must move the sun and not stop the earth from rotating, is the same reason earth must see the dark side, the other side of the moon.

Earth only sees one side of the moon because the moon's orbit is tidal locked to earth from billions of years of gravity tugs on the moon. So the other side of the moon gets sunlight, just we never see the other side. Thus, the legend of Yao's wife, princess E, ascending to change the face of the moon after Yao's long day, April 1, 2315 BC. Thus the American Native legends of a rabbit or frog face on the moon.

North American Native legend records the moon had the look of a frog and a rabbit and at other times the look of the face of a man.

The Russians took some photos of it. Some legends report the moon looked different at times. Stopping earth from rotating would be very hard to do without destroying earth. Then also, when moving the moon to the other side of the earth with the sun, the moon may not be rotated but show its far side to earth. The far side of the moon is much rougher than the near side with the sea of tranquility. The moon rotates in sync with its 29 day orbit. So earth never sees the far side.

If the sun and moon moved 180° on a full moon, the far side of the moon should face earth fully reflecting its rough and very different surface to earth.

"Once there were seven suns in the sky. It was too hot. People found a good archer and asked him to shoot some of the suns. The archer was a daring man. He said, 'Tomorrow morning when the seven suns come out I'll shoot six of them with six arrows. If I fail, I'll be a marmot, cut off my thumb, drink blood instead of water, eat dry grass and live underground.' Well, he shot five. When he shot his last arrow, a sparrow flew in front of him. The arrow cut the sparrow's tail, which is why the sparrow has a forked tail. He did as he promised, and became a marmot. That is why the marmot has human meat on him."
Ghengis Khan, Life, Death and Resurrection. By John Man. p.27. On the subject how tales originated among the Mongol people.

TRANSLATION AND COMMENTARY OF THE CH'U SILK MANUSCRIPT found in 1934, from 500 BC: Text A: Yao assigns Kung Kung to manage the Ho? "After one thousand and one hundred years, the Sun and the Moon .... born" 1119 years between Yao's long day, 2357 BC, and Joshua's long day, about 1238 BC. Many irregularities of the sun and moon follow in Text B: "the sun, the moon thence will gain and retreat, and will not obtain its .... . Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter .... (= not?) have .... (= their?) regularity." In a reverse orbit the stars marking spring and fall are reversed. "the [process of] gaining and retreating .... (= becomes muddled?)"

The zodiac retreats in a reverse orbit. "Sun and the Moon have already become confused" Both the sun and moon must move 180°. "The [movements of the] Sun and the Moon .... (= verb?) in confusion, the Stars and the Constellations will not be in harmony." In a reverse orbit the stars rise later each evening instead of earlier but the moon would rise later each evening as usual. "the seasonal rainfall will come and go, and there will be no regularity" a change in weather patterns in a reverse orbit would be expected. "Respectful (= humble?) people not yet aware [of this], .... will regard [it] as thence (= as a norm). Do not move (= disturb?) the multitudes of the people" People are the same today.

Was Yao's Long Day 9 X 12 hours longer accomplished by the sun moving 9 X 180° east and appearing to stand still in the sky for 9 X 12 hours?

"he shot the ten suns above and destroyed the dragon-like beast below"

The dragon-like beast could be the moon which must move 180° also to stay in the same lunar phase. The dragon, the moon, often ate the sun in an eclipse. The Chinese symbol for moon, or darkness, was Yin, - female, princess. The Chinese symbol for sun was Yang, male. The moon's hidden side must shine, either from sun shine or earth shine, on earth till the moon rotated 180°. Perhaps the toad look of princess Chang E in the moon was the moon's hidden side lighted by the sun shining on earth. The far side of the moon is rough and battered like the bumps on a toad.

The sun may have moved again seven years later to mark the seven years of famine in Egypt and be both the unicorn in Yao's seventh year and the sun and moon miracle that marked the Chinese Autumn festival of princess Chang E.

The Chinese mid autumn festival would occur in 7 BC September 12, when Jesus was born. Thus, perhaps a sun miracle in September 2309 BC and China would see the dark side of the moon. Thus the legend of princess Chang E. And thus the purpose of the sun miracle to point to the coming of the Christ Jesus.

The blood moon, at the time of a lunar eclipse - may have recorded not the passing shadow of the earth that nignt, September 15, 5 BC recorded by Josephus, when the sun may move back two years after Jesus' birth, may have shown the far side of the moon in the red reflection of the dimmed sun on the other side of the earth.

Earth only ever sees this one side of the moon which is mostly smooth. In this rough cratered image taken by a Russian satellite in the 1960's for the first time, you see the far side of the moon on the right half of this image. On the left you see the smooth dark Sea of Crisis, Border Sea - border of what we can see on earth, and the Sea of fertility. The whole far side of the moon is filled with craters with just the small Moscow Sea and small Sea of Ingenuity, which cannot be seen in these photos:

Moon's far side: Pictures of the Moon, Moon's Far Side

Tilt of Earth's axis or Tilt of Earth's Orbit

Then the sun must move up or down after the 180° revolution around the earth, necessitating a like sun miracle half a year later or a year later or multiples thereof for the sun to move back and earth to flow out of the reverse orbit and earth's orbit continue as if nothing had happened. Note that in 2247 BC in Yao's 70th year phoenixes appeared. There was a light from Ho/Scorpio that could be Mars in Scorpio in 2247 BC at the sun miracle February 26, 2247 BC. Then the first sun miracle may have been February 26, 2247 BC. Then the sun returned in the second month, day sin-chow day 38 of cycle 60, February 26, 2246 BC with all five planets in Maou/Taurus and Pisces - with the sun. The 21st day of the first month being very like the fall of Jericho also on the 21st day, February 17, 1241 BC.

Then two years later, in the second month, he led out all his ministers, and dropped a peih in the Lo. The ceremony over, he retired and waited for the decline of the day. Then a red light appeared; a tortoise rose from the waters, with writing in red lines on its back, and rested on the altar. The writing said that he should resign the throne to Shun, which accordingly the emperor did."
The Chinese Classics III, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, Emperor Shun.

"On the first day, the first month, he received Yaou's retirement from the imperial duties of the Accomplished ancestor." "He examined the gem adorned turning sphere, and the gem traverse tube, that he might regulate the seven directors." "In the second month he made a tour." "Note: when a month was completed. The summons had been sent to the nobles, and at the expiry of a month they began to arrive." "Thereafter he gave audience to the nobles of the East, putting in accord their seasons and months, and rectifying the days;"
The Chinese Classics III, The Canon of Shun.

Shun reigned 28 years with Yao, from 2244 BC to Yao's 100th year in 2216 BC when Yao died. Then Shun reigned about 50 years to 2168 BC.

Note: "On his accession, the felicitous bean grew about the stairs, and phoenixes nested in the courts. When they beat and tapped the musical stones, to accompany the nine performances of the Shaou, all the beasts came after one another gambolling. A brilliant star came out of Fang (Libra/Scorpio). The earth produced the horse Shing-hwang."

The Chinese Classics. The Annals of the Bamboo Books. Note. p.115.

Yao may have reigned from 2315 BC 100 years to year 56 of cycle 60 = 2222 BC. Shun reigned from 2222 BC. 2250 years before Jesus began his ministry August/September 29 AD on the jubile of the 50th year and quoted Isaiah 61. In Shun's 14th year, 2207 BC = 2200 years before Jesus' birth. 110 years from Joseph becoming governor of Egypt in 2315 BC was 2207 BC. Sunday September 5, 2307 BC was day 14 of cycle 60 in China and day 17 of the Hebrew lunar month. Thus there may have been a sun miracle foretelling Jesus' birth the 17th day of the lunar month, Sunday, September 13, 7 BC. Several dates in Chinese history foretelling Jesus' birth occurred on day 14 of cycle 60.

"In his 14th year, auspicious clouds appeared. .Shun raised an altar at the Ho, as Yaou had done before. When the day declined, there came a fine and glorious light; and a yellow dragon issued and came to the altar, bearing a scheme on his back, 32 cubits long and 9 cubits broad, in lines of red and green intermingled, the words of which were that he should resign in favour of Yu."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.116.

"In his (Yu) 8th year..In the summer, in the 6th month, it rained gold in the capital city of Hea. In the autumn, in the 8th month, he died."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.118

Shun reigned from year 56 of cycle 60 (2636 BC) 2221 BC 53 years to Yu in 2168 BC. Thus Yu died in his 8th year 2160 BC.

The other possibility for the sun miracles in Yao's 70th year: "A brilliant star issued out of Yih, Corvus." The sun may have moved from Pisces to Corvus and be this brilliant star. "The five old men on this flew away like flowing stars, and ascended into the constellation Maou." That is, perhaps they moved 180° from being in the Ho with Mars, Scorpio to Taurus. Jupiter was already in Taurus, an outer planet. Saturn was in Pisces near Taurus also. It would have not been visible till the sun moved from Pisces. Mercury and Venus were with the sun and must move 180° to Corvus with the sun. Mars must move 180° from Scorpio/Ho to Taurus, an inner planet. Thus Mercury and Venus may appear in Taurus as they moved out of the way of the sun that day/night and thus appear with Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.

If the sun moved at Yao's counting of the new year, one month before the winter solstice, the sun must move from Scorpius to Taurus. Then Yih = Corvus would appear directly above at sunset. The time would be about autumn. Thus the brilliant star appearing in Yih may have been like the star that led the wisemen to Jesus, September 12, 7 BC.

This 70th year = 2245 BC, 38 more years to 2207 BC. Like the ides of March of Julius Caesar, the full moon passover, March 15, 45 BC. 45 BC = 38 years + 38 years to Jesus' sacrifice April 3, 33 AD. Thus the pattern from 2245 BC also. Thus like Solomon who reigned 38 years from 1044 BC to his 38th year 1007 BC. Both 2207 BC and 1007 BC being even hundreds to Jesus' birth in 7 BC. Thus God was pointing to the 38 years of Jesus' life.

"When the emperor had been on the throne 70 years, a brilliant star issued from the constellation Yih (Corvus in Virgo could equal the sun moved 180° from Pisces in March to Corvus = the brilliant star) and phoenixes appeared in the courtyards of the palace (could equal the sun angel was seen that moved the sun); the pearl grass grew, and the admirable grain flourished; sweet dews moistened the ground, and crystal springs issued from the hills; the sun and moon appeared like a pair of gems, and the five planets looked like threaded pearls."

"A kind of grass, moreover, grew on each side of the palace stairs. On the 1st day of the month, it produced one pod, to the 15th; while on the 16th one pod fell off, and so on, every day a pod, to the last day of the month; and if the month was a short one (the moon passes 360° against the stars in 27 days, in a reverse orbit the moon may complete 360° in 31 days. Because the moon is traveling clockwise with the reverse orbit earth which is against its counterclockwise orbit of earth. In both cases the lunar month is 29.5 "days"), one pod shrivelled up, without falling. It was called the calendar bean."

Here you see the hours of the day and night divided into 28 divisions in the Dead Sea Scrolls: in Hebrew.





Here you see the same 28 divisions in the Chinese lunar zodiac from the time of Yao = 2315 BC:





The orbit of the moon in its normal orbit was well known by the ancients to be 27 mansions, and the lunar month 29.5 days.

The moon would still appear as 29.5 days when earth was in a reverse orbit.

The moon would appear to move through 25 solar mansions instead of this 27 when earth was in a reverse, and sped up, orbit. Thus, the lunar month was two hours shorter = two lunar mansions shorter. 48 hours / 12 lunar months = 4 hours shorter a lunar month. The earth would appear to take 364 days in its sidereal year, instead of 366 days because earth was sped up 48 hours = two less sidereal days.

The 52 week calendar was 364 days. The 29.5 day lunar calendar = 354 day year. The first day of the year matched the day of the week every 23 years, and every 46 years, the first day of the year matched the first day of the month and the same day of the calendar.

Thus there be this missing pod in the lunar cycle. Yao's lunar zodiac had 28 mansions. There are 29.5 days a lunar month. These 28 lunar mansions were very unevenly spaced. Thus, the Chinese may only notice a subtle difference in lunar cycles when earth was in a reverse orbit.

"The most common and the earliest division of the ecliptic is that of the 28 lunar mansions. These are of very unequal extent, and consequently very inconvenient for any purpose but that of astrology... But the vernal mansions go to the west, and the autumnal ones to the east, reversing the previous direction of these two seasons, and in opposition to the prevailing notion of the Chinese that spring belongs to the east"
The Chinese Classics. p.95

Thus, from the very sun miracle of Yao's appointment to be emperor, and Yao's lunar zodiac, earth is depicted in a reverse orbit. The only solution is God must have moved the sun to the other side of earth and earth flowed into this reverse orbit.

Then there may be a long night, the sun move effectively 180° and earth flow into a reverse orbit of the sun, day 38, February 26, 2246 BC.

Then two years later the sun move back on day 47, the same date two years later - February 26, 2244 BC.

"Two years afterwards, in the 2d month, Shun led all his ministers and dropped a peih in the Lo. The ceremony over he retired, and waited for the decline of the day. Then a red light appeared; a tortoise rose from the waters, with writing with red lines on its back, and rested on the altar. The writing said that Yao should resign the throne to Shun which the emperor accordingly did."
The Chinese Classics III, p. 114

The sun may have moved 180° on day 38, the sin ch'ow day, February 26, 2246 BC and earth flowed into a reverse orbit of the sun and the sun moved again two years later, on day 47, February 26, 2244 BC and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit of the sun. Or the sun may have moved 180° day 38 of cycle, March 3, 2247 BC, Mars moving from Ho being the light that issued from Scorpio. Thus the ceremony on the date the sun was to move back just after the end of the month when the nobles were gathered, on day 47, March 3, 2245 BC.

If Yao's long day was the 12th of cycle 60 from 2636 BC, this should be 2325 BC. Then Yao's 70th year should be 2256 BC.

However, Yao's first year and Yao's long day appear to date from 2315 BC. 2315 BC - 100 years = 2215 BC. Yao's 70th year be 2245 BC. Julius Caesar's death in 45 BC on the ides of March = the darkness = an omen = when Jesus was on the cross = full moon = passover = 38 years before Jesus' birth in 7 BC. Jesus' life 38 years from 7 BC to 33 AD. Thus, 2245 BC = 38 years to 2207 BC = 2200 years to Jesus' birth in 7 BC.

In Shun's 14th year, from year 56 of cycle 60, 2221BC, = 2207 BC = 2200 years before Jesus' birth:

"The brightness of the sun and moon is repeated from morn to morn." If this was like Jesus' birth 2200 years later, it would be on the 17th of the lunar month. Thus the 17 day old moon would appear in the west with the rising sun in the east at the same time. Then if the sun moved 180° west, the moon should rise brilliantly in the east, followed by the sun.

Perhaps the wandering K'elins were the 5 visible planets moving against the background stars with the sun. Perhaps the sun had moved 180° in 1178 BC, and back in 1174 BC to make the two suns appear in the sky together and the five planet conjunction in Fang in the night in 1194 BC. Tan duke of Chow acted as regent for 7 years to 1158 BC for emperor Ching because he was a child.

"From being manifest, it becomes brilliant. Brilliant, it affects others. The sun standing still in the sky is literally brilliant and affects the whole earth.

The sun standing still in the west may have marked the battle against Emperor Wending who king Wan defeated in 1240 BC, the two suns appeared together 1178 BC. Thus king Wan lived nearly 100 years, in legend, from about 1270 BC - 1186 BC.





"King Wan was like the sun or the moon. He lightened with his shining the four quarters, -- the western regions." King Wan must have observed the long sunset of 12 hours of Joshua's long day from China, thus he would have been looking to the west where he would have finally seen the sun set and when the stars appeared see Jupiter and Saturn appear in Scorpius in the west before also setting.

Earth has never seen the Moon's far side unless God moved the moon to the other side of earth.

Moon's far side: Pictures of the Moon

Moon's Far Side

Moon's eastern edge: Two sides of the Moon

This image of the moon shows the rough far side on the left half.

In the middle you see the Eastern Sea on the border. The moon always shows the same side to earth because the moon rotates exactly 29.5 days the exact orbit of the moon. Thus earth has never seen the other side of the moon, even in ancient times. Except perhaps during a sun miracle. That is, the other side of the moon never faces the earth, not even on a new moon when the same side as faces the earth on a full moon is lit by earth shine.

Notice the far side of the moon coming into view. If the moon could not be immediately rotated during a sun miracle, earth would see the far side of the moon.


The Chinese Chronology

2315 BC may be the start of Emperor Yao and Joseph as governor over Egypt. Joseph was governor beginning the seven years of plenty. Then the unicorn, sun angel, appeared in Yao's seventh year, perhaps to mark the seven years of famine in Egypt. 2315 BC is 41 years later than the assigned date of 2356 BC. Then if all the chronology is correct back from Yao, we may simply subtract 41 years. Thus Huangdi's first year was assigned to 2697 BC - 41 years = 2657 BC = the same 340 years from Huangdi to Yao. 2697 BC - 2356 BC corrected 2657 BC to 2315 BC. Then the sun miracle in Huangdi's 50th year was in 2607 BC.

Then also, when the sun stood still for ten days in China and Yao was made emperor over China this corresponds to the first year of Joseph as governor over Egypt on the same April 2, 2315 BC date.

"Coming to the times of Yao, ten suns once appeared together, scorching the crops, killing trees and plants, so that the people had nothing to eat. Ferocious dragon like beasts, baboons with long teeth, monsters of the deep, gorillas or bears, great boars and pythons are hurtful to people. So Yao employed I to slay the baboons in the wastes of Ch'ou Hua and killed the monsters on the shore of the evil waters (of the barbarian north); be bound the evil beast that creates hurricanes in the marshes of Ch'ing Chiu; he shot the ten suns above and destroyed the dragon-like beast below; he cut down the python in T'ung Ting lake and captured the wild boars in the Mulberry forest.
Tao the Great Luminant. Page 88

The people were delighted and placed Yao on the pedestal of the Son of Heaven (made him emperor, Yao means son of heaven.)."

"We are prepared to affirm that three of the men sent to the four borders of China could not have seen the stars, which occupied for the time being the equinoctial and solstitial points, culminating on the seasons named. E.G. the first part of Libra (beside Lupus next to Scorpius) could not seen culminating at nightfall, when the sun is in the first point of Cancer, for it must culminate at 6PM, where as the sun would not set in any part of China much before 7PM (summer) and the stars would not be visible for a half hour after sunset.

This last fact would stand equally at the equinoxes, of the observers seeing their culminating, unless, indeed the time of observation was several centuries later than the date usually assigned to Yaou (BC 2356 - 2255), so that the stars to be observed had ceased to be exactly in the solstitial co lure."


Chinese Classics III, Astronomy of the Ancient Chinese, p.92

James Legge could make the calculation easily. He could test to see what stars currently appear first at the meridian at dark on the equinoxes and solstices in 1860. Precession then was accurately known to be 50.1" yearly, 1.4° per century. Then calculating precession 1.4° per century back, these stars of Yao's in 2315 BC would be some 10° west of the meridian when they first appeared on these seasons. The jade sighting tube Yao used was credited to be accurate to within 3° and this was done for all four seasons perhaps for several years, making the observation more accurate.

"Dr. Medhurst in his translation of the Shoo King has made the following note: 'If Cor Hydra culminated at sunset on the day of the vernal equinox in the time of Yaou, the constellation on the meridian at noon of that day must have been Pleiades in Taurus (perhaps the first written account of Pleiades other than perhaps Job 9:9).

Now as by retrocession of the equinoxes the stars of the zodiac go back a whole sign in 2000 years, it would take 4000 years for the sun to be in Pleiades at the time of the vernal equinox, which is about the time when Yaou is said to have flourished, and affords a strong confirmation of the truth of Chinese chronology. For Pleiades is 56° and one third from the point the ecliptic crossed the equinoctial A.D. 1800, and as the equinox travels backwards 50 seconds and one tenth per annum, it would take 4000 years for Pleiades to be in the zenith at noon on the vernal equinox." Pleiades transits directly above at 7PM on the vernal equinox March 20 6000 AD!

Not even visible at April 11, 2315 BC before the sun sets at 6:20PM! This observation had to do with the rising sun. This suggests the sun moved from Taurus to Scorpius April 2, 2315 BC. Then the sun would be in Virgo on the vernal equinox. However, there are four stars to Yao's canon, and the other three stars suggest the sun moved 180° October 1 2357 BC. Then if the sun was in Scorpius April 2, 2315 BC probably part of the bird constellation - Neaou, which the Pleiades is apart, should appear just after sunset in the meridian.

James Legge knew these stars should appear much westward of the meridian and said: "could not have seen the stars, which occupied for the time being the equinoctial and solstitial points, culminating on the seasons named."

The perihelion of the sun, which has to do with earth's elliptical orbit, is 22,000 years. The sun is closest to the earth in January and is shifting - in 22,000 years it will have gone through all the months of the year and be at January again. Earth is farthest from the sun now July 4 2008, the aphelion of the sun. Earth is nearest the sun, the perihelion of the sun, January 3, 2008. Earth's elliptical orbit must adjust when the sun moves the 180° to keep the same distance from the sun as it normally would have had. Earth must receive the same intensity of light every day as it normally would have had. Thus the net missing time of 20 minutes is counted during the half orbit while earth is furthest from the sun.

Thus a sun miracle must be when the earth is closest or furthest from the sun for there to be no need for a second half reverse orbit to counter missing time. The sun is closest to earth January 3 and furthest July 4 2008.

Monuments made to tell the seasons, winter and summer solstices and spring and autumn equinoxes, using the sun many thousands of years ago are just as accurate today. Such as at Newgrange built 3000 BC in Ireland. Or at Jebel Barkal, pharaoh Taharqa's pyramid precisely aligns with the sunrise on ancient Egypt’s New Year’s Day. July 16, 700 BC Julian.

If you rotate earth around an axis perpendicular to the plane of the ecliptic the relation between the sun and the earth remains the same. Thus in every case when the sun moved and earth turned on the perpendicular to keep in the same season ancient monuments would tell the seasons correctly by the sun. However, the passage of stars at certain times would not work in periods of earth orbit shifts. Thus constellations disappearing, shifting into the ocean with the sun moving 180° and earth flowing into a revers orbit of the sun, may appear like a perishing old earth and the new four stars marking the four seasons make for a new earth.

Precession takes 25,800 years to complete a wobble around the perpendicular. So, we know earth precesses 1.4° per century. And if the sun moves 180° before or after the equinox earth's orbit must shift forward or backward in precession. However, every day before or after means 2° earth must shift to keep in the same season. However, rather, the sun must have moved up or down after moving the 180° shifting earth's orbit. The sun must move up or down half a degree for every day before or after the equinox. Then if Yao's stars could only have been visible 700 years after Yao then this is a 7 X 1.4° = 10° shift. 10°/2° = 5 days before the equinox.

Then Yao's long day may have been April 1, 2315 BC, 10 days back from the spring equinox in April 11. These dates in BC are Julian dates, Gregorian in AD. However, more likely the "several centuries later" is a minimum and possibly more than 1000 years are needed. If the sun moved 180° on March 31, 2315 BC and earth's orbit shifted 6°, immediately to keep in the same season, that is the same as earth shifting 1400 years in forward precession from the 2300 BC pole to the 800 BC pole. Then Yao's stars would have been first visible in the four seasons more than several centuries later to a 800 BC pole, to allow for their first visibility after dark.

Then the shift in 1400 years of precession. Move the sun 180° around earth at the summer or winter solstice. Then you will note earth has to shift 180° to keep in the same season. Then you will see the solstice December 21 is 90 days from the equinox March 21. If the sun moved 180° at the equinox earth would not need to shift to keep in the same season. Then 90 days back from March 21 is equal to the sun moving 180°. Then earth must move 2 X 90° to keep in the same season.

10 days of 365 days = 10° of 360°. 2 X 10° = 20/360 X 26000 years = 1400 years. This would mean the sun must have moved 11 days before the spring equinox of April 11, 2315 on April 2, 2315 BC to make the stars appear 1400 years more recent and thus Yao's astronomers He and Ho be even able to see the four stars.

This because Yao began his year in Yao's Canon with the spring equinox immediately after the sun miracle to correctly determine the seasons whereupon he was made emperor. Shifting earth's orbit may do exactly the same thing. Earth must keep in the same season and seasons continue as if nothing had happened.

The equinox 800 BC was March 29. Then earth would be in a March 18 800 BC season in our calendar. Even so the zodiac would be back to front and in reverse. Then the celestial ceiling of Pharaoh Seti I perhaps depicting theme from Joseph/Yao's long day from Pharaoh Unas, that is, the severed leg of the bull, may also depict this orbit shift.

Genesis 41:8 "And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh."

An afternoon sun in China woud be a morning sun in Egypt. Thus if the sun stood still for 9 X 12 hours, whereupon Yao employed Yi to shoot at the sun 9 times, whereupon the sun moved again. Thus Pharaoh Unas may have been troubled by the sun standing still in the morning and called for interpreters of his dreams. Pharaoh Unas had a reign of 30 years. This was mistakenly 2375 BC - 2345 BC. Because the end of the sothis cycle was 1281 BC and not 1321 BC, all Egyptian dates must move forward 40 years. Thus Pharaoh Unas must reign from 2335 BC to the second year of famine in 2305 BC:

Genesis 47:8 "And Pharaoh said unto Jacob, How old art thou?
47:9 And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage."

Lonnie Thompson, professor of geological sciences at Ohio State found a layer containing dust in a 4000 year old ice core taken from Mount Kilimanjaro, at the head waters of the Nile. This may be the seven years of famine in Egypt, 2309 BC - 2302 BC. Thus the ice core must be 4,300 old. Thus there were 300 years of drought beginning with 2308 BC in the 430th Egyptian sothis year from 2737 BC.

Mysterious Stone Structure Discovered beneath Sea of Galilee is dated to before 2000 BC. Thus this city could have been constructed from the drought of 2307 BC, the seven years of famine, when Jacob went down into Egypt when the Galilee Sea would be very low.

Pestiaux et al. 1988, analyzed foraminifera from four Indian Ocean cores with high sedimentation rates. Spectral power was resolved into quasi-periodicities within 3 energy bands: 10,200 +- 1200 year, 4600 +- 300 year, and 2300 +- 200 year. Thus back 4600 years is 2600 BC and the birth of Abraham.

The equinox in 2315 BC was April 12. Thus the four stars He and Ho used to mark the four seasons that reverse orbit year, were 11 days or 700 years of precession of the equinoxes out. This because the path of the sun through the zodiac must shift these same 11 days during the reverse orbit of earth that year from April 1, 2315 BC. Yu appears to have reigned from 2107 BC, the same 49th of cycle as given in the Chinese Classics working back from year 55 of cycle 60 in 720 BC. Thus Yu's reign may have originally been inscribed the 49th of cycle before the dates were arbitrarily given years of cycle working backwards from Yi in 894 BC. Then in the second year of famine in Egypt is April 1, 2307 BC when Jacob and his sons entered Egypt to sojourn, for 1026 years.

The year Jacob and the children of Israel entered Egypt in the 430th year sothis is the year beginning April 1, 2307 BC. The year had backed up 107 days from July 16, 2737 BC. 430 years divided by four = 107 days.

Huangdi was China's first recorded emperor. It was said he started counting the years in cycles of 60. Some suggested this began in his 60th year, thus with 2636 BC. Yes, I agree he began his 60 year cycle in 2636 BC, but in his 20th year. In Huangdi's 20th year:

"When he was sitting in a boat in the Yuen-hoo, above its junction with the Lo, there came together phoenixes, male and female."
The Chinese Classics III, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, Part 1.

The moon passed the sun on day one of cycle 60 in year 1 of cycle 60, January 26, 2636 BC. Thus the sun and moon were together as were the sun phoenix and the moon phoenix. Thus the cycle 60 year calendar and the cycle 60 day calendar started January 26, 2636 BC on the sun miracle that day.

Huangdi's first year would be 2657 BC, would be when Abraham's father Terah was about 18, if Terah was about 70 when he had Abraham. Terah born 2676 BC about 70 years before Abraham born in 2607 BC, was about 19 in Huangdi's first year and sun miracle, 2657 BC. 18 is about the age of Joseph when he was sold into Egypt. 18 is about the age of David when he slew Goliath. 18 is about the age when a young person can responsibly make a stand for Christ. Then the sun miracle in Huangdi's 20th year would be this January 26, 2636 BC. Then Terah would be about 40 in 2636 BC. Jesus was almost 39 years old when he was crucified in 33 AD.

Abraham would have offered up Isaac Friday, February 16, 2468 BC. Or Tuesday the third day of the week the full moon February 13, 2468 BC - the sun returning the same date one year later, day 6 of cycle 60, on February 13, 2467 BC. Or the sun moved Friday, April 13, 2468 BC, on the 14th day of the lunar month, the sun returning one year later on day 6 of cycle 60, April 15, 2467 BC - on the spring equinox. The passover was to occur on the spring equinox as it did March 31, 1281 BC. In this Julian calendar the equinox moves one day back every 125 years. Since 1 AD our Gregorian calendar keeps pace with the equinox always on March 21. When Isaac was 38 and a half years old from September 23, 2507 BC.

This event on day 6 of cycle 60 was to have taken place in his 13th year when the Chinese emperor Chuen-Heuh invented calendaric calculations. Then he would become emperor in 2481 BC, 1200 years before the Exodus in 1281 BC. Perhaps there was a sun miracle in 2481 BC whereupon Chuen-Heuh was made emperor and again in his 13th year 2468 BC when Abraham went to offer up Isaac as a type of Christ.

"in his 13th year he invented calendaric calculations and delineations of the heavenly bodies."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.110.

Yao also made calendaric calculations when he sent He and Ho the four directions when he became emperor when the sun stood still for nine days. The Han emperor in 206 BC also sent to the four directions.

Genesis 23:1 "And Sarah was an hundred and seven and twenty years old: these were the years of the life of Sarah."

Sarah was about 90 when Isaac was born. Thus Isaac would be about 38 when Abraham went to offer him up when Sarah died at 127 years.

"The Hong fan zhuan says: 'Calendrical records began with Emperor Zhuan Xu's Superiour Epoch of Grand Commencement in the year yanmeng shetige, in the month bizou, on the new moon day jisi [6], the Beginning of Spring, when the seven luminaries gathered at the fifth du of YINGSHI [LM 13].“ [Xin Tang shu], ch. 27.

February 15, 2467 BC, the new moon on day 6 of cycle; 2500 years from the full moon February 15, 2468 BC before the full moon April 3, 33 AD.

Genesis 24:67 "And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent, and took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her: and Isaac was comforted after his mother's death."

This verse 24:67 could be turned into also the correct date. The next verse should be 24:68 but is 25:1. Abraham went to offer up Isaac about the time Sarah died at 127 years, Sarah was about 90 when Isaac was born. Thus 37+ years, 127 - 90 years, from 2507 BC Abraham born in 2607 BC and Isaac born in Abraham's 100th year 2507 BC, + 38 years = 2468 BC, like verse number 24:68.

"The Hong fan zhuan says: 'Calendrical records began with Emperor Zhuan Xu's Superiour Epoch of Grand Commencement in the year yanmeng shetige, in the month bizou, on the new moon day jisi [6], the Beginning of Spring, when the seven luminaries gathered at the fifth du of YINGSHI [LM 13]."
[Xin Tang shu], ch. 27

Then the first year of Zhuan Xu must have been 2481 BC, 1200 years before the Exodus. Thus there may have been a sun miracle in 2481 BC whereupon Zhuan Xu became emperor.

This could be the sun returning one year after Abraham went to offer up Isaac. Thus on the new moon on day 6, jisi, February 15, 2467 BC, in the lunar mansion 13 Pegasus. The flying horse of Pegasus may be named after one of the four beasts, that was like a horse, before the throne of God, both in Ezekiel and in Revelation.

Ezekiel 1:10 "As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle."

Revelation 4:7 "And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle."

Thus, the four beasts may fly to the sun to move the sun to the other side of earth. This February 16 was 150 years before the Egyptian new year July 16 just as the Egyptian calendar had backed up 150 days in Armenian sothis year 600 in Noah's flood to Saturday, February 16, 3307 BC. February 16, 1281 BC was the new moon a month and a half before the Exodus, March 30, 1281 BC. Abraham may have offered up Isaac 60 days later on the same day of 60, day 1 of 60 in China, Tuesday, April 16, 2468 BC, the third day of the week, or day 57 of cycle 60 Friday April 13, 2468 BC, about the time of the spring equinox.

Zion where Abraham went to offer up Isaac means sunny. Thus he saw the bald mountain afar off. And thus perhaps after an hour of darkness at noon when he went to offer up Isaac there was three hours of sunlight. And on the third day, there should be a sudden and brilliant sunrise at 8 PM in the east. Thus the emphasis on "sunny". Emperor Chuen-heuh reigned not from 2513 BC - but from 2472 BC subtracting 41 years from all pre Yao emperors. "In his 13th year he invented calendric calculations and delineations of the heavenly bodies."

Then if the reigns between Shao Hao and Zhuan Xu were switched by mistake from 84 and 78 to 78 and 84 years, then his first year would be 2481 BC, 1200 years before the Exodus in 1281 BC, and his 13th year would be 2467 BC when he witnessed a planetary conjunction, one year after Abraham went to offer Isaac, in Pegasus and recalculated the seasons. Then there should have been a sun miracle in this 13th year, the planets moving out of the way of the sun in a conjunction. Then he sought to start the new year in February at the same time. Working backwards from Yao in 2315 BC + 11 years + 70 years + 84 years = Zhuan Xu's first year in this 2481 BC.

Thus a sun miracle on the 14th day of the lunar month, Friday February 16, 2468 BC or Friday April 13, 2468 BC, could be the day Abraham went to offer up Isaac as a type of Christ at the exact age of Christ. Thus the emperor of China then began the calendar, the first month of the year, in February/March. Then also perhaps God performed the same sun miracles on Isaac as he did for his Son at the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. Then Yao's long day to begin his first year was also Joseph's long day to begin Joseph's first year as governor over Egypt in 2315 BC.

Then the emperor Zhuan Xu reigned 84 years from 2481 to 2397 BC. Then Isaac had Esau and Jacob in his 69th year, adding 9 years, in 2437 BC. 2437 BC was Sothis year 300 from 2737 BC. Enoch, the seventh from Adam, may have been born on a Sothis year 300, 3897 BC, living 65 years when God took him in Sothis year 365 = a quarter Sothis cycle. Jacob and Esau then would turn 40 in 2397 BC perhaps when Zhuan Xu died. It was when Esau was 40 he took two Hittite wives. Thus there may have been a sun miracle the same year to show God's displeasure and the Chinese took it as an omen and slew their emperor.

Genesis 26:34 "And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beer-i the Hittite, and Bath-e-math the daughter of Elon the Hittite:
26:35 Which were a grief of mind unto Isaac and to Rebekkah."

Then emperor Kuh reigned from this 2397 BC 70 years to 2327 BC. Ishmael died at 137 years in 2383 BC. Isaac would be 110 years old in 2397 BC, perhaps Kuh's first year as emperor, and 147 years old when he blessed Jacob and Esau. Jacob left Canaan and arrived at Haran about 2368 BC when he was 70 years old. The lambs Rebecca prepared for Jacob and Isaac were a type of the Passover lamb. In 2362 BC Isaac was 147 years old. In emperor Kuh's 16th year, about 2371 BC or 2381 BC = 1100 years before the exodus in 1281 BC, "he made Ch'ung lead an army, and extinguished the state of Yew-kwae." Rebellion was often brought about by the sign of a sun miracle.

Then in 2327 BC emperor Kuh died when Isaac died at 180 years of age. Thus a sun miracle the year Isaac died and the Chinese may have deposed their emperor. Isaac must have died soon after Joseph was 17th years old. When Joseph was 17 he dreamed the sun and moon and eleven stars would bow down to him. At 17 Joseph was sold into Egypt. Then sun miracle when he was a slave in Egypt when he was about 20 years old, may have encouraged Joseph. Then Levi must have died 17 years after Joseph in 2217 BC.

In Shun's first year may have been about 2217 BC. The patriarch Levi died at 137 years, probably in 2217 BC.

Exodus 6:16 "And these are the names of the sons of Levi according to their generations; Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari: and the years of the life of Levi were an hundred thirty and seven years."

The third child of Leah must have been born about 2355 BC. Jacob left for Haran in the 44th jubile from Adam in 2368 BC. Jacob laboured seven years for Rachel, but was given Leah. Thus Leah's third child, Levi, must have been born about 14 years later, in 2355 BC. And thus Levi lived 137 years, to 2217 BC.

From the Armenian Sothis start date 5368 BC to Jacob in his 70th year, 2368 BC = 3000 years.

Baillie noted a climate change in tree rings in 2355 BC.

Shun may have begun his reign in 2217 BC at Yao's death in Yao's 100th year. "Note: On his ascension the felicitous bean grew about the stairs, and phoenixes nested in the courts...A brilliant star came out in Fang."
The Chinese Classics III, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.115

The 14th day of what would become the Passover month, began in March 29, 2217 BC. This would be about the time of year as of other sun miracles, such as Yao's long day, April 1, 2315 BC, and the Sojourn into Egypt, Friday, Aprl 1, 2307 BC. On March 29, 2217 BC the sun should be in Taurus. Thus perhaps the sun had moved from or to Fang/Scorpio 180° away and the sun was the bright star in Fang, or leaving Fang there appeared a supernova in Fang.

In Shun's 14th year, 2204 BC, the Passover and passover month would have been Friday April 5, 2204 BC. 2200 years later Herod would die by April 1, 4 BC and Joseph and Mary return to Nazareth with Jesus. What was described was: "The brightness of the sun and moon Is repeated from morn to morn." That may describe the brightness of the resurrection morning. The sun rising in the west on China, then passing 180° west to soon rise in the east in China. Israel would see the sun set in the east, then rise brilliantly and suddenly in the east. Then this sun miracle perhaps occurring at the set time as in the resurrection week, Sunday April 7, 2204 BC. The spring equinox was April 10, 2200 BC. A sun miracle then and earth's reverse orbit would not need to shift to keep earth in the same season.

Yao reigned 100 years, Shun 50. Yao's first year was written as year 13 of cycle 60 which should be 2224 BC. Because of an overlap of a few years working backwards: Yu 2168 BC + 50 of Shun = 2218 BC, + 100 of Yao = 2318 BC less a few years = 2315 BC and the Sojourn into Egypt 2307 BC.

Thus 150 years back from Yu is 2315 BC. Then Yu's first year may be in cycle 49, 2167 BC. Then Shun's first year may be year one of cycle sixty, 2215 BC to year 50, of cycle 60, = 2166 BC. Then the year of sixty would be correct from Shun all the way to Wu in 1174 BC with an ursurpation of 60 years in the Hea dynasty, perhaps near emperor Seang. Emperor Kin is recorded in year 42 of cycle 60, when it should be in year 6 of cycle 60. Thus, a further adjustment of 36 years would equal this 60 years usurpation. A sun miracle to precede Shun's death in 2168 BC would be 2200 years before Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD. Then all the Bamboo years of cycle 60 are correct from Yu to Wu. If in year 30 of cycle, perhaps the eclipse of Chung-k'ang be in 2127 BC and be in the fifth day of the ninth lunar month in his fifth year.

The sun may have moved back 180° on the new moon October 13, 2128 BC on day 47 of cycle instead in the year 29th year of cycle. This was a new moon but not a solar eclipse. If not an eclipse on day 47 this must be a sun miracle. There is no solar eclipse in this time period on a day 47 of cycle 60. NASA has no exact match.

However, the total solar eclipse on October 22, 2137 BC visible in China is the date given by Nasa.

This solar eclipse fixes the reign of Chung-Kang correctly from 2141 BC, his fifth year 2137 BC.

From Yu in 2168 BC (2200 years to Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD) - 8 years, K'e - 14 years, T'ae K'ang - 4 years, Chung-Kang - 5 years = 2137 BC!

The solar eclipse on the new moon was on day 7 of cycle 60. Thus, the day may be 7 instead of 47. The day be geng wu = 7, instead of geng xu = 47.

If 2137 BC = Chung-Kang's 5th year, his first year would be 2141 BC. Joshua conquered Palestine in 1241 BC 900 years later.

This early Chinese record is recognized that it may not be of a solar eclipse because of the terminology. Normally the Chinese would write that the sun was eaten not the Heavenly bodies did not meet harmoniously in the chamber.

Emperor Chung K'ang's first year may be 2131 BC = 400 years to emperor Kin's last year when the sun stood still for 10 days 1731 BC. These 400 years are during the Sojourn of Israel in Egypt from 2307 BC to 1281 BC.

If in year 31 of cycle 60, day 47 of cycle 60 in the ninth month would be Sunday, September 28, 2125 BC, the 17th day of the seventh Hebrew month. The ark of Noah rested on the 17th day of the seventh month. A sun miracle on this date would point to Jesus' birth, the 17th day of the seventh month, about Sunday, September 13, 7 BC. This Julian calendar loses 1 day every 128 years. So, 2125 / 128 = 16. September 28 - 16 days = September 12, 7 BC in the actual tropical calendar.

The nearest eclipse according to NASA was October 22, 2136 BC on day 14 of cycle, year 1 of cycle, does not match any of the description. Then the sun must have moved 180° one year earlier, Hebrew lunar day 17, October 13, 2128 BC. The 17th day of the seventh Hebrew in Egypt lunar month may have represented the day Jesus would be born, the 17th day of the seventh month, September 13, 7 BC. The fall equinox in 2128 BC was about October 9 which is 17 days later in the calendar than in 7 BC when it was September 22.

The eclipse, rather sun miracle noted on day 47, probably was not the new moon October 13, 2129 BC - there was no solar eclipse at that time even near those numbers.. Most likely this "solar eclipse" in a 30th year of cycle 60, was 60 years later the missing 60 years in Chinese emperor chronology being before this date. Sunday, October 4, 2069 BC was day 17 of the seventh Hebrew month and day 47 of cycle 60 in China. 2069 BC was 2100 years before Jesus' crucifixion in 33 AD.

Or the "fifth" then may refer to both the day of the lunar month and the year. Thus this is a sun miracle not an eclipse on lunar day 5, day 47 of cycle 60, Sunday, October 8, 2127 BC.

"In his 5th year, in the autumn, in the 9th month, on the day kang-seuh (47 of cycle 60), which was the first day of the month, there was an eclipse of the sun, when he ordered the prince of Yin to lead the imperial forces to punish He and Ho."
The Chinese Classics, The Annals of the Bamboo Books, p.119

There are 120 years missing from 1080 BC to 960 BC. Emperor Chung-K'ang "In his first year, which was ke-ch'ow (26th of cycle 60)." = 1951 BC + 120 years = 2071 BC. His 5th year = 2068 BC. The 9th month from January, day 47 may be Monday, September 28, 2068 BC = the 17th day of the 7th Hebrew month = Jesus' birth, September 12, 7 BC. 2068 years backs up one day in 128 years in the Julian calendar = 16 days to equal the tropical calendar such as our Gregorian calendar from 1 AD that keeps the day of the fall equinox, say September 22 the same day over thousands of years. September 12, 7 BC + 16 days = September 28, 2068 BC. Thus, this darkness taken as a solar eclipse, "the day of the Lord is darkness" may be a type of Jesus' birth.

There is a 60 year gap in the reigns of Chinese emperors about 2000 BC. "Han-zhou" matches a 60 year gap from 2054 BC. However, if "Han-zhou" reigned before Chung-kang, Chung-kang's reign would be 60 years more recent. Thus, 60 years ahead from 2127 BC is 2068 BC. The passover would be April 1, 2068 BC, the full moon. April 1, 2068 BC is day 47 of cycle 60. For the passover, even in years before Moses while the children of Israel were in Egypt, to be a type of Jesus, there should be darkness at noon that day. The Chinese would see the sun just about to set, then sudden and complete darkness. Thus the beating of drums as is done on a total solar eclipse. There would be from one hour to three hours of darkness as there was when Jesus was on the cross.

Thus, this as well as many other sun miracles in years X68, would point to Jesus' sacrifice yet to come.

The record states the new moon on the ninth month in autumn. Thus day 47 of cycle 60, 180 days before April 1 is the ninth month, October 5, 2069 BC. Then the sun can move back again, half an orbit later, 180 days later, April 1, 2068 BC. If the sun was on the otherside of earth, the sun would be in Scorpius, an autumn zodiac sign, one half orbit away from and on April 1, 2068 BC. Then the sun and moon may not meet harmoniously, as in a solar eclipse, because the sun and moon would be 180° apart.

Thus April 1, 2068 BC was what would become the passover, the 14th day of the 1st Hebrew month = day 47 of cycle 60 also. Perhaps a sun miracle of darkness such as the three hours of darkness at noon when Jesus was on the cross April 3, 33 AD = 2100 years later 2068 BC + 33 AD no year zero.

September 27, 2068 BC was day 47 of cycle 60, in the ninth month of autumn. The 30th year of cycle 60, that this sudden darkness was by legend, from 2636 BC was 2067 BC or autumn 2068 BC. Sunday, September 27, 2068 BC was also the 17th lunar day of the seventh Hebrew month. Jesus must have been born Sunday, September 13, 7 BC on the 17th day of the seventh Hebrew month. Sun miracles point to Christ.

Jesus must have been born in the 17th day of the seventh Hebrew month in keeping with the pattern of Noah's flood. God may have intended the sun miracles to point to Jesus's birth, ministry and sacrifice.

The astronomers He and Ho who were executed for not foretelling this omen of darkness were placed in Perseus. The sun would normally be in Scorpius in autumn in 2127 BC or in 2068 BC. Perseus was 180° away and near the pole star position. Thus the sun may have moved to or from Perseus. Also, as in the sun miracle, on the new moon, the sun and moon were in the polar region February 11, 141 BC.

A sun miracle near winter or summer and the sun would have to move up or down to keep earth in the same season. If you have globe of the earth, you can put your hand by the north pole. Now move your hand 180°. To keep earth in the same season you would have to turn the base of the earth 180°. So the sun moving 180° 90 days before the spring equinox means 2 X 90 in days in an earth shift to keep earth in the same season. Earth did not shift, the sun shifted six months into the zodiac at the same plane of the zodiac to keep earth in the same season.

Chronology of Chinese Emperors

"the very last chapter of Mencius, where the philosopher says that 'from Yaou and Shun to T'ang, a perioud including all the dynasty of Hea - were 500 years and more; that from T'ang to king Wan - the period of the Shang dynasty - were 500 years and more"
The Chinese Classics III, p. 84.

The 508 years for the Shang dynasty work just fine. Here you see 490 years for Hea instead of the 470 in the Chinese Classics. Likewise, in the Chinese Classics there is reference to a missing 60 or 120 years between Emperor Wu, in 1174 BC, and the first confirmed eclipse date of 776 BC in the Bamboo Books. "The day dawned twice" in 894 BC the first year of KIng E must be the total eclipse that year. So we are missing 120 years. We have 160 years from emperor Wu to Kung, 1174 - 1014 BC. Then a blank space from 1014 BC to 894 BC. Because this is exactly 120 years, 2 X 60; the dates given in year of cycle may be correct. Just we are missing exactly 120 years.

The Shang dynasty back from Wu in 1174 BC the 508 years in the Bamboo Books we start at 1682 BC which is exactly 400 years before the Exodus of the Hebrews out of Egypt in 1281 BC. Then there would be 490 years for the dynasty of Hea. The both together make 508 years + 490 years = 1000 years for both the Hea and Shang dynasties. The Chinese Classics estimates the Hea dynasty at 470 years. Then including Han-zhou, who is mentioned in the Common chronology but not the Bamboo chronology, at 60 years not 40 years, the entire chronology works.

Chronology of Chinese Emperors adjusted from the Bamboo Books

Huangdi 100 years. Shao hao 77 years. Zhuan xu 77 years. Di ku 77 years. 2 X Jesus' life span of 38 and a half years = half a life span, a full life span = 77 years. China changed emperor's often when there was a sun miracle because they feared the omen. Thus these 77 year reigns may be marked by sun miracles.

Here you see many matches of the begin dates to the reigns of the Chinese emperors to Jesus. Most probably the Chinese changed emperors when there was a sun miracle. Often God used sun miracles to point to his Son Jesus: Hundreds of years before his birth in 7 BC. Hundreds of years before his crucifixion in 33 AD: X68 BC.

From the solar eclipse in 776 BC correctly recorded the fifth year of Yew, we are sure we have the correct date. Then working backwards involves a bit of speculation. There was a comet recorded in Ch'aou' 19th year which could be comet Halley in 1022 BC. Thus the Usurpation of 60 years. Then again a usurpation before we get back to Ching. There were no more 60 year usurpations to Han-zhou in 2054 BC. Then back from Yu there were 490 years to the first year of Huangdi in 2657 BC.

Then there are the 508 years of Shang, just as the Bamboo Books state, from 1174 BC to 1682 BC and the beginning of the 400 years of Hebrew slavery in Egypt. At that time two suns fought together and there was an earthquake. Then there was a new dynasty of Shang in China. The dynasty of Hea would then be 60 more years and be 490 years not 431 years from Yu in 2167 BC to T'ang in 1677 BC. Emperor Sean from 35th of cycle 60 to emperor Shaou-Kang 43d of cycle. Sean at 28 years, added 40 years to Shaou-K'ang.

Then the sun miracle in the eighth year of Kin where the sun stood in the sky for 10 days be about 1731 BC and perhaps be a jubile year for the Hebrews in Egypt before the 400 years slavery. That is in 50 year cycles we come to the Exodus in 1281 BC when the children of Isreal were expected to go up and conquer the promised land. 50 year cycles back are 1731 BC.

Then a sun miracle in Kwei's tenth year, about 1700 BC, when the five planets went out of course. This also perhaps being a prelude to the 400 years slavery.

Joseph/Yao's long day

2315 BC: Chinese emperor Yao recorded "the sun did not set for 10 days".
This quote is commonly associated with Joshua. Realistically, Yao lived 1000 years earlier, so this must be something else:

Yao was made emperor right after he smote the 10 suns whereupon he recorded his seasons. That is, the sun stood still in the sky in China so he hired an archer to shoot at it 9 times and refrained and the sun proceeded as normal. Joseph was made governor over Egypt April 1, 2315 BC on Pharaoh's birthday, when began the seven years of plenty. April 1, 2315 BC was day 10 of cycle 60. There was a unicorn in Yao's seventh year. At the seventh year of plenty in Eygpt there was a famine also for seven years. In Yao's 70th year there were phoenixes. If Yao's first year was Joseph's first year, then Joseph would be 100 in Yao's 70th year.

Tao the Great Luminant, page 88: "Coming to the times of Yao, ten suns once appeared together, scorching the crops, killing trees and plants, so that the people had nothing to eat. Ferocious dragon like beasts, baboons with long teeth, monsters of the deep, gorillas or bears, great boars and pythons are hurtful to people. So Yao employed I to slay the baboons in the wastes of Ch'ou Hua and killed the monsters on the shore of the evil waters (of the barbarian north); be bound the evil beast that creates hurricanes in the marshes of Ch'ing Chiu; he shot the ten suns above and destroyed the dragon-like beast below; he cut down the python in T'ung Ting lake and captured the wild boars in the Mulberry forest.

The people were delighted and placed Yao on the pedestal of the Son of Heaven (made him emperor, Yao means important like emperor or like the search engine name Yahoo.)."

This may describe the change of weather after the sun moved 180° and earth flowed into a reverse orbit. The drought and resulting fire would force out snakes and wild animals. The sun must move back half a year or up to two years later depending on the length of time the sun stood still to counter the time. The sun could have dimmed and stood still in the sky for 108 hours or 9 X 12 hours. That possibly may be the 9 suns referred to in the legend. Time enough to start forest fires. Then the sun may have traveled 180° west when it returned two years later, to counter the missing time, and earth flowed out of the reverse orbit. Then the sun would brighten seven times and the day be only about 2 hours. Then to leave the same daily coral line in the sun's brief travel through the sky the sun's intensity must have been increased sevenfold.

108 hours seems long. Nevertheless, the sun must stand still in the sky for 36 hours often. The seven years of plenty began that April 1, 2315 BC. Perhaps rain clouds were diverted from China to Egypt during the seven years of plenty. Thus the drought in China at the same time as the years of plenty in Egypt.

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."

Genesis 50:1 "And Joseph fell upon his father's face, and wept upon him, and kissed him.
50:2 And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his father: and the physicians embalmed Israel.
50:3 And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of those which are embalmed: and the Egyptians mourned for him threescore and ten days."

The number 70 represented the days of mourning for Jacob. It may also represent the 70th year of Joseph as governor over Egypt from 2315 BC in 2247 BC when there was a sun miracle. 70 years from the first year of the seven years of plenty. We know the famine was during Pharaoh Unas' reign. We know that Jacob entered Egypt in the second year of famine in the 430th year sothis from 2737 BC, thus spring 2307 BC. Thus Joseph became governor over Egypt 8 years earlier in 2315 BC.

Genesis 41:46 "And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt."

Joseph would be about 38 in the second year of famine when Jacob and Joseph's brethren came down into Egypt. Thus Joseph would be the age of Jesus, 38 and a half in the second year of famine, the age of Jesus when he was crucified.

2 Samuel 5:4 "David was thirty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned forty years."

2 Samuel 5:5 "In Hebron he reigned over Judah seven years and six months: and in Jerusalem he reigned thirty and three years over all Israel and Judah."

Joseph and David both began to reign when they were thirty. Then some assume Jesus began his ministry when he was thirty. However, Joseph was 38 when his father Jacob and his brethren entered Egypt in 2307 BC = 2300 years to Jesus' birth. David was 38 when he began to reign over all Israel. Jesus born September 12, 7 BC and crucified April 3, 33 AD means Jesus began his three and a half year ministry on Yom Kippur to fulfill the jubile of Isaiah 61 Friday September 9, 29 BC when he began to be 35 years old and was crucified April 3, 33 AD when he was 38 and a half years old. Pilate put his accusation on the cross "The King of the Jews".

The Canon of Yaou

Thereupon Yaou commanded the He and Ho, in reverent accordance with their observations on the wide heavens, to calculate and delineate the movements and appearances of the sun, the moon, the stars, and the zodiacal spaces; and so to deliver respectfully the seasons to the people.

He separately 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 the spring. "The day," he said, "is of medium length, and the star is in Neaou; you may thus exactly determine mid-spring. The people begin to disperse; and the birds and beasts breed and copulate."

He further commanded the third brother He to reside at Nankeaou, and arrange the transformations of the 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 mid-summer. The people are more dispersed; and birds and beasts have their feathers and hair thin, and change their coats."

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."

He further commanded the third brother Ho to reside in the northern region, in what was called the Sombre Capital, and there to adjust and examine the changes of the winter. "The day," said he, "is at its shortest, and the star is Maou; thus you may exactly determine mid-winter. The people keep their cosy corners; and the coats of birds and beasts are downy and thick."

The Mao said, "Ah! you, He and Ho, a round year consists of three hundred, sixty, and six days. By means of an intercalanary month do you fix the four seasons, and complete the determination of the year. Thereafter, in exact accordance with this, regulating the various officers, all the works of the year will be fully performed."

James Legge, The Chinese Classics: "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."
The Chinese Classics III p.94

Notes, The Shoo King p.18: "The special object of his observation was to ascertain that mid spring, the vernal equinox, was correctly fixed; and that the final end was that the 'labours of the east' might be adjusted. Those labours of the east are the labours of spring; and in the other parr. the south stands for summer and the west for autumn and the north for winter."

Of course the sun rises in the east, noon is south and west is sunset. However, the sun appears to move west to east through the year against the stars. Moreover, the sun can only be to the east of the zodiac in spring in a reverse orbit. The only explanation is earth in a clockwise, reverse, orbit. "the prevailing notion of the Chinese that the spring belongs to the east" - only in a reverse orbit. Lets have a look at this sentence of Yao:

"He separately 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 the spring."

The sun only rises in the east as it does each day in a reverse orbit. Moreover, this sun miracle on the full moon April 2, 2315 BC was the day and the year Joseph became governor over Egypt. This is about April 2, 2315 BC 10 days before the vernal equinox reckoning by the amount the four stars Yao appointed had moved from when they would normally appear in 2300 BC. Thus one would expect a sun miracle the day Joseph became governor. Yao may have known something about sun miracles. Thus he sent He and Ho, astronomers, to determin the days of the equinoxes and solstices by the four stars because with earth in a reverse orbit the stars normally used would not work.

One of those two sun miracles should be a short day with the sun suddenly rising in the east. Half the time when there was a short day China would see the sun suddenly rise in the east. Then this sun miracle would be on the vernal equinox. Thus perhaps Yao's command "and there respectfully to receive as a guest the rising sun". That night a star in the Bird Constellation would appear above just after dark. Then there would be a second sun miracle the next day to start the second reverse orbit. This Bird Star, Neaou, means phoenix. There was a phoenix often seen when there was a sun miracle. Thus, Yao could estimate the constellations that would appear above that year just after dark perhaps because earth was already in a reverse orbit that October 5 2316 BC just in time to start the year in November.

Nevertheless, Yao's long day could just as easily have been April 1, 2315 BC and the reference to the rising sun be earth's reverse orbit. Thus the need to determine spring immediately because the stars would not appear in the seasons they normally did. These stars would not disappear into the west as the year progressed. They would appear more and more to the east each night when the stars came out.

The Koren New Year began in 2333 BC, in Yao's 25th year according to Dongguk Tonggam 1485 AD. Jacob died in 2290 BC at 147. He was 130 at the entering in of Egypt in 2307 BC. The Korean people at that time were sun worshippers. A sun miracle may have marked the death of Jacob and the beginning of the Korean Calendar in Yao's 25th year in 2290 BC.





These lunar mansions date from the time of Yao in 2315 BC. The earliest lunar mansions date from 3117 BC. "The most common and the earliest division of the ecliptic is that of the 28 mansions. These are of very unequal extent, and consequently very inconvenient for any purpose but that of astrology" Never the less the moon was in the first lunar sign Yih or Corvus on the sun miracle January 2245 BC perhaps described by the calendar bean - see Shun. This lunar zodiac progresses counterclockwise as the moon appears to orbit earth counterclockwise as does the sun in earth's normal orbit and the lunar mansions are in normal sequence. Even when earth was in a reverse orbit of the sun the moon maintained its orbit, only 180° from the star it was in.

Likewise, the lunar month would begin the 180° away and close one sign of the zodiac in reverse, each successive lunar month beginning with the sun appearing in the reverse sequence of the signs of the zodiac. During earth's reverse orbit of the sun, Saturn must go through all 28 signs every 6 months. Or one lunar sign every 6 or 7 days. Saturn must orbit the sun twice every earth reverse year to appear in its seasons in the sky.

The Chinese could not have used all 28 mansions for 28 days of the 29.5 days of the lunar month when earth was in a reverse orbit because the sun moved into the 28, 27, 26, 25, 24, days as earth orbited the sun in reverse. That is, the sun moves with the moon's orbit in earth's normal orbit of the sun to leave the 27 and 28 day mansion visible that was not visible at the start of the lunar month because the sun was there. The opposite happens in a reverse orbit of the sun. Thus the Chinese could only use 3/4 of their lunar mansions in a reverse orbit of the sun. At the same time there would still be 29.5 days in the lunar month. Also the lunar month must be 4 hours shorter than the normal lunar month because the year must be 48 hours shorter.

The moon would not have to orbit faster because its orbit would be against earth's orbit and the 4 hours less a month automatic. These mansions are only approximate divisions of the sky. Nevertheless, not seeing a quarter of them every month would confound them.

See the TRANSLATION AND COMMENTARY OF THE CH'U SILK MANUSCRIPT from 400 BC.

Here you see the sun's position before the sun moved at the fall of Jericho, Saturday, February 17, 1241 BC. The moon is at the end of Pisces:





Here you see the sun's position when the sun moved back February 15, 1240 BC. The six day moon as in king Wan's dream:





In a reverse orbit the last two lunar mansions would not be visible because instead of the sun moving up Pisces the sun would appear to move down. Thus the last two lunar mansions in Pisces would not appear because Pisces would not appear. Some of these 28 lunar mansions were as large as one zodiacal sign. Thus the Chinese would not see the last lunar mansion in a reverse orbit.

Yao's reverse solar zodiac would progress clockwise through these lunar mansions, that is, not in normal sequence. Which way the zodiac progresses depends if you are looking south or north. However, we are talking about the very real event of earth orbiting the sun in reverse, the sun progressing through the zodiac in reverse sequence. "There are stars which favour wind and stars which favour rain. When the sun and moon move, we have winter and summer. If the moon follows the stars [rather than following its own path], there will be rain and wind."
The Grand Scribe's Records, Volume V.1, p.276.

That is, when earth was in a reverse orbit of the sun the moon would appear to move with the zodiac. That is, The moon moves west east as it orbits. In a reverse orbit of the sun the stars would move west east through the year. East west each night but west east through the year.

The sun in 2300 BC was in Taurus in spring which is depicted here in the west

"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"
Chinese Classics, Volume III p.94

It would not matter what month the sun moved 180° spring would always be in the east in a reverse orbit, because the constellation the sun was in the winter solstice would be north.

"We must remember the hour of midnight at the winter solstice is with the Chinese a grand epoch; a sort of repetition of the T'ae-keih or commencement of all things. Let the circle in the annexed figure represent the position of the ecliptic at midnight in mid-winter, in relation to the Chinese earth, represented by a square space in the center. At the season and hour in question, in the time of Yaou, Leo would be in the meridian, and south of the zenith in the middle of China; Taurus would be in the west, and Scorpio in the east; and it is correctly inferred that Aquarius, though invisible, would be north of nadir. Accordingly, the seven winter mansions of which Aquarius is the center are assigned to the north, and the seven summer mansions of which Leo is the center are assigned to the south.

Thus far the arrangement agrees with that already described according to the motions of the Great Bear."

"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."
The Chinese Classics, Volume III p.94

The zodiac represents the constellation the sun is in at the time and since Yao was talking about the sun there should be no problem. This depiction is a depiction of the vernal equinox. However, the sun can only be in the east in spring in a reverse orbit. And that this was the prevailing notion of the Chinese reverse orbits must have been so frequent so as they thought they were the norm. Every sun miracle was followed by a sun 2 miracles six months later and/or a sun miracle on the anniversary of the first one. Thus there must be at least 100 sun miracles from 2700 BC.

"The special object of He's observation was to ascertain that mid spring, the vernal equinox, was correctly fixed; and the final end was that the 'labours of the east' might be adjusted. Those labours of the east are the labours of spring..the south stands for summer the west for autumn and the north for winter."

That is, the sun at sunrise in Scorpius in the east in spring, the sun at noon in Leo in summer would have had the sun in the east in Scorpius in spring in a reverse orbit, the sun at sunset in Taurus in autumn with Scorpius in the east, the sun on the other side of the earth at midnight in Aquarius in winter with Scorpius now visible again in the sunrise position in the east, the year likened to a day. Thus the sun in a reverse orbit would appear to move from east to west through the year, through the stars, just as it does though the day. Just as depicted in this grand epoch at midnight on the winter solstice. This picture is only complete when earth is in a reverse orbit and the sun was in the constellation in the sunrise position in spring when the sun is in the summer constellation at noon.

The above diagram depicts the zodiac. The sun is to the east of the zodiac 2315 BC on the spring equinox. Of course sunrise in the east could symbolize spring, a noon sun in the south summer and a sunset in the west autumn. Likewise the apparent association with a day and a year - the sun appearing to move from the west to the east against the stars as we orbit the sun counterclockwise as we do now. However, in a reverse orbit the sun would travel through the zodiac from east to west and spring would be in the east. James Legge is right, there is no way in the present counterclockwise orbit for the zodiac to depict spring in the east.

"The labours of the seasons are therefore called 'changes.' For Ts'een has 'the hidden things,' with reference to the energies of nature now working in concealment."
The Chinese Classics III, The Canon of Yaou, p.19 p.21 Notes.

Ts'seen is Sagittarius when the sun is in the first of spring, often the time of sun miracles to mark the passover in Israel.

"only since a new order of things has it come about that the stars move from east to west."
Bellamy, Moons Myths and Man, 1938, p.69

This must mean earth in a reverse orbit, the stars gradually moving from west to east through the year. The months of the year must be in reverse against the sign of the zodiac the sun was in, in a reverse orbit.
See Seneca's falling zodiac.

Except for Aquarius none of Yao's stars would have been visible in their season.

Joseph's Dreams

Genesis 37:2 "These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives: and Joseph brought unto his father their evil report.
37:3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.
37:4 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.
37:5 And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.
37:6 And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed:
37:7 For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.
37:8 And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.
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.
37:10 And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?
37:11 And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying."

Joseph would be 17 in 2322 BC. Jesus spoke from Isaiah 61 to fulfill the 50 year jubile. From 2322 BC; 47 X 50 = this same Yom Kippur August/September 29 AD.

Two times 17 years would equal Jesus' age when he began his ministry when he was 34 years old on this jubile.

Genesis 43:26 "And when Joseph came home, they brought him the present which was in their hand into the house, and bowed themselves to him to the earth.
43:27 And he asked them of their welfare, and said, Is your father well, the old man of whom ye spake? Is he yet alive?
43:28 And they answered, Thy servant our father is in good health, he is yet alive. And they bowed down their heads, and made obeisance."

We do not know when the second dream was fulfilled:

Genesis 36:9 "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."

Joseph is central in both the first and second dream. Perhaps earth is central and the sun and planets revolved around the earth the day Joseph was made governor over Egypt at the beginning of harvest. That day Joseph's brethern would see the sun stand still and perhaps wonder at Joseph's dream not knowing he was being made governor over Egypt. The planets must turn around and face the sun at the same inclination as before. More likely the eleven stars refer to eleven of the twelve signs of the zodiac. That the sun had moved 180° from the Pleiades to Virgo, Virgo not visible because the sun was in that "star". Thus, the other eleven stars/zodiac appear to bow to the sun, the zodiac now progressing in reverse. That is, the sons of Jacob would bow to the Son of God, Jesus, with the glory of the Sun.

Matthew 17:1 "And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into a high mountain apart.
17:2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light."

Pharaoh called Joseph first thing in the morning to interpret his dream, whereupon:

Genesis 41:43 "And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt."

Perhaps the morning sun stood still in the sky for Joseph as Pharaoh made him governor and he went out into Egypt. The morning sun in Egypt is an afternoon sun in China. Then perhaps that afternoon the sun stood still in China, the people were in commotion and almost 12 hours later Yao appeared to employ Yi to shoot at the sun. There is a Chinese constellation of a bow aimed at Sirius/Taurus, just where the sun would be in Spring just before the sun moved the 180°, the emperor pulling the string. After 9 X 12 hours, the sun having moved 9 X 180° east, and at the 9th arrow, Yao refrained Yi and the sun moved, whereupon they made Yao emperor. Yao's previous name was Fang, he was named Son of Heaven that day.

This bow aimed at Taurus may have been first named when the sun was in Taurus April 1, 3307 BC and perhaps the sun moved 180° one week before the day of Noah's flood Saturday February 16, 3307 BC. Joseph's long day April 1, 2315 BC was 10 days before the spring equinox in 2315 BC. The sun may have risen in the west and set in the east seven days earlier Saturday, February 16, 3307 BC: "During this time of grace, the laws of nature were suspended, the sun rose in the west and set in the east." Then earth would flow into a reverse orbit of the sun.

Then the ninth plague, the three days of darkness would fall on this first of the year of the great flood, February 14, 1281 BC, day 52 of cycle 60. However, more likely the three days of darkness was on the new moon, March 15, 1281 BC to create complete darkness when the sun and moon may have been moved to the other side of earth and revolved there 3 X 24 hours.

The 430 years in Genesis 11 may be from sothis year 1,430 = 2767 BC. Then the next 30 years to year 1,460, 2737 BC, at the end of the sothis cycle. The other year 430 in Exodus also was a sothis date, 2307 BC, 460 years later.

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

From the Septuagint; Arphaxad lived 35 years, Cainan lived 30 years, then 403 years, then was Salah born.

We do not know if Cainan was added in later.

Arphaxad was born the second year after the flood, 35 years for Arphaxad, 30 years Cainan.

Genesis 11:14 "And Salah lived thirty years and begat Eber.
11:15 And Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters."

Genesis 10:25 "And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan."

This could be the division at the tower of Babel. This could also be the division of the calendar, the end of Sothis cycle of 1,460 years from 4197 BC when Peleg was 60 in 2737 BC. Thus Eber lived to year 430, rather 1430, in the 30 years after he begat Peleg. Then 30 years to the 1460th year when Reu would be 30 and start a new sothis cycle.

Genesis 11:17 "And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters.
11:18 And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:"

Genesis 11:21 "And Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters.
11:22 And Serug lived thirty years and begat Nahor.
11:23 And Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years, and begat sons and daughters."

3305 BC - 35 - 30 - 403 - 34 - 30 - 32 - 30 - 29 = 2689 BC to Terah. Then Abraham was born 2607 BC.

Thus the total all adds up when we put in the 403 years.

Then 30 + 200 + 2737 BC = 2507 BC when Abraham was 99 and when Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed and then Isaac was born.

Thus Sodom and Gomorrah must have been destroyed October, 2508 BC, one year before Isaac was born. See Genesis 18.

If Isaac was born on the 17th of the seventh month, as Jesus must have been, that may be Sunday September 23, 2507 BC. Then Isaac would be circumcised Sunday September 30, 2507 BC. Then Jesus' birth September 13, 7 BC would be 10 days after Isaac's birth in the Tropical year. This is because the fall equinox was October 10, 2507 BC and September 23, 7 BC.

"In Hwang-te's 50th year, in autumn, in the 7th month, on the day Kang-shin [57th of cycle], phoenixes, male and female arrived."
The Chinese Classics

Then also, Rue lived to sothis year 207, 207 years after 2737 BC to 2530 BC; to when Terah died in sothis year 205 when Abraham was 75 and Abraham left Haran.

Abraham at 75 years would be about double the age of Jesus when Jesus went to the cross.

Here you can see the 17th day from the new moon is October 18, 2607 BC. The year is 365.24 days. Thus this Julian calendar, that is used for dates BC, based on 365.25 days moves the dates of solstices and equinoxes over hundreds of years. This is also the date of the autumn equinox that year:





From day 1 of cycle 60 January 27, 2636 BC we can calculate the 57th day: 2636 BC - 2607 BC = 29 years. 29 X 365.25 = 10592.25; subract the .25, then divide by 60 = 176.5333. Multiply by the remainder .5333 X 60 = 32. 32 = (January 26) + 5, + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 31 + 30 + 18 = 297, - 240 = day 57 October 18, 2607 BC.





Yao's Long day must have been 11 days before the equinox, the full moon, April 2, 2315 BC for these stars to mark the seasons. April 1 was pharaoh's birthday. Thus Joseph in prison two years previous April 1, 2315 BC was April 1, 2317 BC. Egyptian Sothis year 430 began April 1, 2307 BC marked the Sojourn into Egypt and the Exodus out of Egypt.

The 11 days represents 1400 years of precession rather than 700. Thus, these stars would mark the four seasons in 1000 BC, about the time of Solomon. If you place the sun 180° on the other side of a globe of the earth, you will notice you have to rotate the globe 180° to keep in the same season. This means three months before the vernal equinox, if the sun moved to the other side of earth, an earth globe would have to be
