    Researchers have pinpointed the date of what could be the oldest solar eclipse yet recorded. The event, which occurred on 30 October 1207 BC, is mentioned in the Bible, and could have consequences for the chronology of the ancient world. Using a combination of the biblical text and an ancient Egyptian text, the researchers were then able to refine the dates of the Egyptian pharaohs, in particular the dates of the reign of Ramesses the Great. The results are published in the Royal Astronomical Society journal Astronomy & Geophysics. The biblical text in question comes from the Old Testament book...

    The Sutherland Springs man who came face-to-face with a madman who killed 26 people in a Texas church says God protected him and gave him the skills he needed to stop more deaths. The former NRA instructor engaged Devin Patrick Kelley as he exited the church. "I'm no hero. I'm not," Stephen Willeford told 40/29 News reporter Joshua Cole in a video interview on Monday. "I think my God, my Lord, protected me and gave me the skills I needed to do what needed to be done." [Facebook video] "I just wish I could have gotten there faster," Willeford said...
  • Solar eclipse of 1207 BC helps to date pharaohs

    10/30/2017 9:54:36 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 20 replies
    According to the book of Joshua in the Old Testament, after an all-night march from Gilgal, the Israelites attacked the Amorites at Gibeon, they then pursued them to Azekah and then to Makkedah. We have evidence from historical geography of where these places were: Gibeon was about 10 km northwest of Jerusalem, Azekah about 30 km southwest of Gibeon and Makkedah about 20 km south of Azekah. Because the eclipse occurred in the afternoon, it was probably seen from near Azekah, from where the partial eclipse would have started at 15:27 (local apparent time as given by a sundial), with...

    In America today, it’s almost impossible for men not to worry. After all, 102 million Americans are unemployed while another 10 million are just a paycheck away from being jobless. World events, like Russia invading the Ukraine to steal the Crimean peninsula (which many believe is a precursor to World War Three); news reports of natural disasters all across the planet; the deadly Ebola virus spreading throughout West Africa; the disappearance of the Malaysian airliner with 239 passengers on board; the constant intrusion into our private lives by an administration bent on reshaping the American dream as we once...

    Conventional biblical scholars tentatively position Moses during the Ancient Egyptian New Kingdom reign of Ramses II. Not much evidence supports this view. However, the Egyptian Twelfth Dynasty stories provide so many details which match the Exodus details, that these coincidences strongly suggest that both sources are describing the same events...

    Doctors in Israel say that former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's "already critical medical condition is deteriorating further as key bodily organs continue to decline," . Dr. Zeev Rotstein, director of Tel Hashomer hospital near Tel Aviv, told reporters that members of the 85-year-old Sharon's family are by his bedside, the AP adds. The news that Sharon, who has been in a coma since suffering a stroke in 2006, was suffering additional problems.

    This week brought more bad news for Joshua Welch, the Baltimore-area second-grader who was suspended for two days because his teacher thought he shaped a breakfast pastry into something resembling a gun. School officials have denied an appeal to have the suspension expunged from the boy’s permanent record, reports The Baltimore Sun. Robin Ficker, the attorney representing Welch and his family, said he will now take the matter to the Anne Arundel County school board. Under local regulations, he has 30 days to do so. “If this school can’t educate a seven-year-old without putting him out of school, how are...

    And when G-d your G-d will bring you to the Land to which you come to inherit it, and you shall give the blessing on Mt. Grizim and the curse on Mt. Eval. (From this week's Torah portion, Re'eh, Deuteronomy 11:29) Professor Adam Zartal finished his archeology studies before the Yom Kippur War and soon began his research of the Biblical inheritance of Menashe. In the days after the Six Day War it was still possible to roam freely in the area, and the kibbutznik from Ein Shemer enlisted volunteers to comb the area - meter by meter - in...

    Three Israelis were injured late Monday night after Palestinians hurled rocks at their car near West Bank settlement of Ariel, Israel Radio reported. One of the Israelis was moderately injured, while the other two were lightly injured. Four residents of the central Israel town of Elad reportedly made an unauthorized and uncoordinated prayer visit to the tomb of Joshua, located in the West Bank village Kefel Hares. Upon exiting the village the four were hit with stones thrown by local Palestinians. The driver's head was hit by a stone, subsequently causing him to lose control of the vehicle and crash...

    By faith the walls of Jericho fell, after the people had marched around them for seven days. Hebrews 11:30 I've always loved the Jericho story. I've always seen it as faith AND obedience. First, the people had to have faith that going around the walls even once was a good things. Seven priests accompanied the ark of the covenant and the people along with seven blaring trumpets. They marched around Jericho one time for six days. On the seventh day, they marched around the walls of the city seven times. On the seventh time around they shouted and "the walls...

    “Joshua, ‘The Lord Saves’” (Joshua 1:9; Matthew 1:21)Today we are observing the Commemoration of Joshua. Let me explain. If you will turn in the very front of your hymnal to Roman numeral pages xii and xiii, you will see a list of Commemorations. And on page xiii, under September, you’ll see listed for September 1, Joshua. Now September 1 was this past Monday, but we’re observing it today, on the first Sunday in September. The Commemoration of Joshua. What exactly is a “commemoration,” and why do we do it? The word “commemoration” simply means “remembrance,” to honor the memory of...

    A reminder of the historic significance of the Jewish People's first day in the Holy Land was provided by a trip for Russian-speaking Israelis to Joshua's Altar on Mt. Ebal outside Shechem. The story began just before this past Chanukah, when two busloads of Russian-speaking Israelis - new immigrants, veteran immigrants, and some tourists - made their first visit to the site known as Joshua's Altar near Shechem (Nablus). Security concerns notwithstanding, the visitors - many of whom had never been to the area - came away greatly inspired, and some were even moved to tears. Secular Jews found themselves...

    The Harrison County School board has a problem, a whole lot of questions and very, very few answers. Two civil liberties groups sued the board last month over its decision not to remove a picture of Jesus from Bridgeport High School. "And I do not want to spend taxpayers' dollars, says school board member Sally Cann. "But even if we have a free organization, does that make them the best organization to represent us? I don't think so, necessarily. I mean, I don't know how to go about it." This comes after six groups have offered free legal counsel to...
