    NOTE:
    If you closely examine the periods given in each of the above scriptures you will see that they don’t line up with the same periods shown in the list of Israel's kings. So it is clear that the years of the reigns are averaged in both instances and can’t be calculated into final dates. Therefore, rather than trying to reach firm dates based on guesses, we have deferred to the Prophecy found at Ezekiel 4:5 that sets the period of the kings of Judah (presumed to be from the end of the reign of Solomon to JeruSalem’s destruction by NebuChadNezzar) at 390 years.

    ALSO, you can see that the suggested dates shown in parenthesis above are about thirty years earlier than secular estimates for the destruction of JeruSalem and even nine or ten years earlier than the hotly debated popular Biblical date of 607-BCE. (For more information on why we trust the Bible dating, see the Linked Document ‘The Problem with Setting Bible Historical Dates.’
