Chronology of the Old Testament: A Return to the Basics (eBook)
Format: Electronic Book (pdf)
Ministry/Author: FLOYD NOLEN JONES, Th.D., Ph.D.
Description: This dissertation addresses the conflict between the presuppositions and methodologies utilized by the modern school of Biblical chronology whose procedure rests on the Assyrian Eponym Canon, the royal inscriptions of the Assyrians and Babylonians and the Ptolemaic Canon as being absolute and accurate as opposed to the traditional Biblically oriented school which regards the Holy Scripture as the factual source against which all other material must be weighed.
The propositions advanced are: (1) There is academic justification that the chronology of the Biblical record can be fully substantiated with internal formulae documentation independent of religious overtones; and (2) This internal structure has been preserved in a specific rendering of the Biblical record, namely, the Hebrew Masoretic Text and the Greek Textus Receptus (the only current English translation being the King James Bible). In support of these propositions, standard objections, i.e., “generation gaps”, “scribal errors”, etc. will be met with forthright solutions and alternatives based upon the internal data, not by “emendations”, “restorations” or “corrections” of the Text.
