"To Daniel Matson re: "The Abraham Chronology""
Thanks for your interaction.
Actually your period of 70 years is the 70 years of the desolations of Jerusalem that began 19 years after the start of the Captivity in 606 BC.
Those dates of 587 to 518 BC are the found to be 2,520 360-day years before the founding of Zionism in Basle, Switzerland in 1897 and the capture of Jerusalem in 1967.
As far as the 6,000 years, yes we are past them in solar years since the fall of 1996.
However, converting them all to 360-day years makes 6,060 of those years in 2017.
If, we apply the 60 year difference of Abraham as in the 1948 finding, then it becomes 6,000.
But more importantly is the facts of 1878 and 1948, which begs the question if the parallel goes further.
I believe there is other evidence that lends this view that 2017 begins the Day of the Lord with 2024 the conclusion of the 70th Week.
