"2520 Years and a Christmas Passover? What does this mean?............."


 
This study is based on the geneology record given in Genesis which IMO records the years
on the 360/day cycle.  This is not the ONLY calendar that is significant, but for the purpose
of arriving at any accurate timeline, we must first begin with the record based on the 360/day
calendar count, again IMO.  From there the 365.25/day calendar can be determined. 
 
This process begins with Adam and ends with the actual beginning count date for our current
calendar - (which, by the way doesn't begin in the year 1 or 0) thereafter using the 365.25/day count to determine the 360/day calendar.  It sounds confusing, but you'd see it's accuracy if you were to follow
thru with the study.  In any event, the information below is mainly to demonstrate how I arrived
at the 2520 date for the Exodus, so I won't be including the full study.  
 
One other point is there are more than two or even three calendars .   But I believe without the 360/
day calendar God's established historical timepieces go undiscovered.     
 
Below is a portion of the Calendar Study I'm working on.  The timeline is leading up to the Exodus. 
If you will notice the date of the Exodus is March 14/152520 yrs. from Adam calculated on the 360/day perpetual calendar.  Notice also the same date, only calculated on
the 365.25/day calendar, = December 24/25, 2483.8.
 
 
I've known about these dates for a number of years only there wasn't the significance then as there is today after reading for the first time Zola Levitt's teaching on the gestation period and the 7 Feasts of Israel.   It's an amazing study!    See.............. http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/july2011/stevene727.htm
 
 
Continuing with the study and how I arrived at the 2520 year for the
Exodus:
 
NOTE:  Abraham was not born in 1948 as some have calculated, but rather

in the year 2008.  The record tells us that Terah was 130 years old when

Abraham was born.  1878 + 130 = 2008. See Acts Ch. 7:1-6.

  3258              3211.2    -   End Soloman's reign.
  
 NOTE:
 
 Time of the Judges -
 
This is the part of the study that I struggled with the most for the biblical record is confusing.  There
is a big discrepancy in studies done on this timeline.   Part of the problem is not having the
correct interpretation of 1Kings 6:1.  There it states that AFTER the Exodus to the 4th year of Soloman's reign, in the 480th yr. he began the temple.  However, there are two ways of inter-
pretating this:
 
Beginning from the Exodus to the 4th year, or 2.  Anytime

after the Exodus to the 4th year.   The verse doesn't say from

but rather "after" the Exodus, thereby the reason for my conclusion.
 
 
In Acts 13:20-21 it states the Judges began after the "450" yrs.

So we can eliminate the 41 years in the wilderness; the 5 yrs.

for the distribution of the land and the additional 4 yrs. which

concluded the 450 years.


After that, we can eliminate the 40 years for Saul, for he was

a King.  The same for David (40 yrs.), and 40 yrs. for Eli (1Sam.

4:18).  Then before Saul there were at least 20 yrs. for Samuel.

Then 4 yrs. for Soloman.  The total then equals 194 years to be

added to the 480 years which equals 674 years.

But there is more, for from the Exodus to the 4th year of

Soloman's reign is exactly 702 years in this study.  The

difference of 28 years.   It must be added to the time of

the Judges or when there was no King and everyone did

as he saw fit - see Judges 21:25.  Other passages mention

they were without a King for a long time.


If the 490 year cycle is relevant and to continue as it does

in this study, then that is why I concluded the date for

Soloman as I did and the reason for the 172 years.  Also,

it struck me as odd that there was this mention of 480 years

as a definite timeline.   It just hit me that it may correspond
 
to the 490 year cycle and I believe it does.  It was for us to

figure that out and somehow those who have done this type

of study have missed it.
