Sample text

At what point does the Bible pass from mythology (meant to be symbolic) to the historic? Probably not at the Garden of Eden. The “Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil” in the garden (as forbidden fruit) seems to be well over on the symbolic side. How about Noah’s Ark? While clearly overstepping the range of the totally believable, it nonetheless reflects a theme so common in myth and legend that it is difficult to find a culture without some version of it. But, while major floods occur in many parts of the Earth, the mythical-biblical flood is a memory of something entirely out of the ordinary.

However, Conven­ tional Chronology is fixed by an astronomically-dated point in the Middle Kingdom that causes chronological problems similar to those created for the Late Kingdom. ”10 In Pharaohs and Kings, David Rohl’s “New Chronology” agrees substantially with the Synchronized Chronology for the Middle Bronze Age. Indeed, he credits Velikovsky for the synchronism of the Exodus and Hyksos invasion. But since Rohl does not recognize the duplication of the 19th and 20th Dynasties as the 26th and 30th, respectively, his remaining reconstruction conflicts with that presented here.
