The time of Israel's First Passover and the resulting Exodus from Egypt began late in the month of February in 1559 BC of the extended Gregorian calendar. The table below shows the annual chronology of Israel from the Exodus out of Egypt until the final year of King Solomon. After Solomon the kingdom was divided beginning in 931/930 BC. The chronology continues until the Assyrians finished the captivity of the ten northern tribes in 722/721 BC. The chronology continues with the tribe of Judah and ends with the completion of the second Jerusalem temple on the 3rd day of the month Adar (Feb. 2nd) at the beginning of the year 515 BC.
Israels' chronology 1559 BC - 515 BC

Israel's Exodus from Egypt was a preview of the coming attractions fulfilled by the only begotten Son of God, Jesus Christ. When Jesus and the disciples ate the Passover meal on a Thursday eve He was crucified on the next day, Friday. Likewise, so did the nation of Israel under Moses. The Israelites ate the initial Passover on a Thursday evening and departed Egypt (a land of bondage) on a Friday. Unbeknown to most people, both the Exodus from Egypt & the Crucifixion of Jesus happend in the month of February. The origin of the month name February is derived from the latin februarius mensis' meaning 'month of purification'. After researching the timing & condition for the barley and flax destroyed by the seventh plague, I am adamant in my conclusion. The initial Passover event took place in the month of February when the barley had reached a state of maturity called abib, and thus the name of Israel's first month, later named Nisan after the Babylonian captivity. The Passover meal was eaten on Thursday eve Feb. 26th at the end of the fourteenth day of the Luna month. After sunset, Friday began and at midnight on the 15th day of the month the Angel of Death killed the first-born of the Egyptians but spared the first-born of Israel. That next morning the Israelites began their Exodus from Egypt. Likewise in the year 31 AD, on Thursday eve February 20th, the Lord Jesus Christ ratified the new covenant when He instituted Communion at the Last Supper. The next day, Friday, February 21st, He was crucified for the sins of the world thereby making atonement & then He resurrected from death on Sunday February 23rd in 31 AD.

In the Lord's calendar of redemption, God does not count specific years of subjugation or captivity in Israel's history. Also, God does not count the first year (1559 BC) of Israels' Exodus from Egypt in His calendar of redemption. The first year was a unique year of preparation and building for the priesthood of Aaron. During the period of the Judges there were six uncounted periods totaling 111 years Israel was subjugated by enemy nations. Also, beginning in the year 732 BC, three of the northern tribes from Israel were taken captive to Assyria. From 732 BC - 515 BC there was another 217 consecutive years during which either Israel or Judah was in captivity and God likewise does not count these years in His calendar of redemption. From the Exodus until the completion of the second temple (representing the new covenant) there was a total of 329 uncounted years in the history of Israel/Judah. From the Exodus until the curcifixion of Jesus there were exactly 1260 years of atonement that God does counts in HIS CALENDAR OF REDEMPTION! In The Revelation of Jesus Christ in chapter 12 the woman fled into the wilderness where she has a place prepared by God where they should feed her there for 1260 days. Those 1260 days are the exact length of the ministry of Jesus (caught up to God and his throne) from the day of His baptism on Elul 27 in the year 27 AD until the day of His resurrection on Nisan 16 (Feast of First-fruits). Verses 7-10 tell about the war in heaven and Michael and his angels fought with the dragon and his angels but they were cast out of heaven then the loud voice in heaven proclaims "NOW salvation and strength and the kingdom of our God have come." Notice that this statement takes place between the two distinct periods of time, meaning it happend after the 1260 days but before the time, times, and half a time (1278 solar days) mentioned in this chapter. Recall in the gospel of Luke chapter ten after the seventy disciples retruned and said "Lord even the demons are subject to us in your name." then Jesus said, "I saw Satan fall like lightening from Heaven but Jesus is still involved in his 1260 day ministry on planet Earth. In the second period of time mentioned in this chapter and given as a time, times, and half a time the woman is given two wings of a great Eagle and she is nourished in the wilderness for 3.5 solar years or 1278 days. This second period is the length of the ministry of the Holy Spirit to Israel during the second half of Daniel's seventieth and final week. An example of this word picture depicting the great eagle is found in Exodus 19:4 (NKJV) where it states; 4 "You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles' wings and brought you to Myself." Revelation chapter twelve gives the two distinct amounts of time that comprise Daniel's 70th week. Unfortunately 95% of todays ministers have been deceived by a wrong translation of the "Prince who is to come" spoken about in Daniel 9:26 and render this Prince as the Anti-Christ when in fact it is a reference to the ministry of the Holy Spirit and NOT the 3.5 year ministry of the Anti-Christ.such as taught by the many false teachers! IT DOESN'T GET ANY MORE CONTRADICTORY THAN THIS!

1559 BC
Israels' Exodus from Egypt was on Friday Feb. 27th in 1559 BC. The many commentaries of scholars at Biblehub.com place the timing of the seventh plague (barley & flax destroyed) in the month of February about one week before the Passover event. It is my opinion that Senakhtenre Tao I was Pharaoh in Egypt at the time of the Exodus. The entire first year was a unique year of instruction and preparation. The Law of Moses was dictated and the wilderness tabernacle with its' sacred furniture had to be built. The statutes, decrees and ordinances of Aarons' priesthood were readied and on the first day of the first month in the second year the wilderness tabernacle was set up. The atonement money was not collected from the 603,550 Israelite males until the second month of the second year (Exodus 30:11-16 and Numbers chapter one).
1st year of
atonement
1558 BC
The Lord's calendar of redemption didn't start until the second year after the atonement money was collected from the 603,550 Israelite males. The wilderness tabernacle was not set up until the first day of the first month in the second year. Also in the second year the spies returned with a negative report. When the spies went forth from Kadesh Barnea to survey the land they must have departed sometime about the middle of May in 1558 BC. They returned 40 days later near the end of June when the early grape harvest was beginning. The 40 years Israel was condemned to spend in the wilderness had to be Luna years at this point in time. Forty Luna years measured from May 14th in 1558 BC brings one to Monday, March 2nd (Nisan 10) in 1519 BC. The very day Israel entered the Promised Land. Furthermore this shows the calendar governing the Jubilee year cycle was a strictly 12 month Luna year that wandered through the year. This is evidenced by Sabbath years of rest seen in various books of the Bible.

40th & final year of Israel wandering in the wilderness. They entered the Promised Land on Abib 10 in the following year, 1519 BC.
40th year of atonement
1519 BC
Israel entered into the Promised Land on Abib 10, Monday, March 2nd, this year. It was also the day from which 49 Luna years would begin to be counted for the Year of Jubilee in Israel (Lev. 25). Exactly 49 Luna years later, as the Day of Atonement (Tishri 10) was about to begin in 1472 BC, the trumpet was sounded and the Israelites celebrated the first Year of Jubilee. This is really an amazing portion of scripture because God actually pinpoints the start date and finish date when these 49 years would expire. One must simply realize these are indeed Luna years.

Acts 13:16 helps to validate Israel's exodus in 1559 BC. These verses tell us God put up with their ways in the wilderness for 40 years then the 5 year period it took to conquer parts of the land before it was apportioned to the various tribes. After this they had judges for about 450 years until Samuel the prophet. Josephus tells us Samuel judged Israel 12 years after Eli died. Then King Saul reigned 40 years. King David reigned 40 years. Adding the 4.6 years of Solomon until the 2nd month of his 4th year when temple construction began totals 592 if whole years are used. This was the exact same amount of years given by the historian Josephus for that same span of time between the Exodus until the second month in Solomon's fourth year. The difference when compared with the 480 years listed in I Kings 6:1 can be easily discerned when one understands God does not count years of subjugation or captivity during which Israel was punished. The 112 uncounted years reflected in the amount given in I Kings 6:1 tells us there was 480 years between the Exodus and the second month of Solomon's fourth year. However, one must realize these are years of redemption and not historical years. The house of the Lord mentioned in this verse was built to be a permenant structure for the atoning sacrifices under the priesthood of the Levites. When one understands that God does not count the 112 years mentioned above then the archaeological evidence such as the findings of Kathleen Kenyon concerning Jericho make logical sense because her data blends seamlessly with her timeline for the destruction of Jericho about 1550 BC, plus or minus 30 years.

Joshua and the elders led Israel while the land was apportioned. The writings of Josephus tell us Joshua led Israel 25 years after Moses (Antiquities of the Jews, Book 5, chapter 1, section 25).

2nd uncounted year
1494 BC
This uncounted year began the first of six periods of subjugation during the time of the judges when Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord. All six subjugation periods are marked in red numbers under the year colunm. In this initial period Israel served Cushan-Rishathaim King of Mesopotamia for 8 years (Judges 3:8). God does NOT count the 6 periods of subjugation totaling 111 years in His calendar of redemption, see (1Kings 6:1). This is the very reason First Kings 6:1 tells us there was only 480 years from the Exodus until Solomon's fourth year. Historically speaking there were exactly 592 years. (My ways are not your ways says the Lord)!

Israel celebrates its' first year of Jubilee. When Israel entered the Promised Land on the tenth day of the first month in 1519 BC (March 1st/2nd). God told them to count 49 years until the tenth day of the seventh month (The Day if Atonement). Exactly 49 Luna years later this was fulfilled on the Day of Atonement, Thursday, Sept. 15th in 1472 BC. The trumpet was sounded throughout the land and the Year of Jubilee began. When measured from sunset beginning Abib 10 in 1519 BC until sunset beginning the Day of Atonement in 1472 BC was a span of exactly 49 Luna years.

40th & final year Eli judged Israel. Nine months into Eli's 40th year (Abib reckoning) about Oct/Nov this year the Philistines defeated Israel and captured the Ark of God. Upon hearing the news about the Ark being captured Eli died & the Ark remained with the Philistines for 7 months before it was returned at the time of the wheat harvest (about May) in 1064 BC. (I Sam. 6:13)
384
1064 BC
The Ark of God was returned to Israel sometime about May at Beth-Shemesh but seventy Israelites died after looking into the Ark. The Ark was then moved to Kiriath Jearim where it remained in the house of Abinadab for 20 years (I Samuel 7:1,2).
Samuel presided as leader in Israel after the death of Eli. He judged Israel 12 years after Eli and eighteen years with King Saul. This year marked the start of his 12 years as lead judge in Israel (Antiquities of the Jews book 6, chap.13 sec.5)

1052 BC
During this year it must have been sometime after the beginning of the Hebrew civil year (Tishri 1) when Samuel first anointed Saul as King over Israel. Samuel wrote the regulations of Kingship on a scroll and deposited it before the Lord (near the Ark of God). Samuel first anointed King Saul privately, then by lot at Mizpah, and thirdly before the public at Gilgal at the time of the wheat harvest (May in 1051 BC) This public anointing at Gilgal undoubtedly followed the victory organized by Saul over the Ammonites at Jabesh Gilead. This was King Saul's accession year. A kings accession period did not count as an official year for the reign of Judah's kings.
397
1051 BC
The many erroneous Bible translations introducing the reign of King Saul beginning at
I Samuel chapter 13:1 have all missed the mark on showing the Lord's intent for this particular verse. The verse essentially states " After one year Saul reigned two years." All Judah's kings used the accession year method beginning with Saul. Saul's accession period extended backward from the time he was anointed by Samuel and that period included the previous months beginning at the Feast of Trumpets in 1052 BC. Samuel 13:1 therefore credits Saul with 2 years when in reality his second year was his first official year. This was the coronation year of Israels' first king.

Then King Saul commanded Ahijah "bring the Ark of God here." Unbeknown to him, Johnathan and his armorbearer had just killed 20 Philistines within a half-acre of land.

According to Josephus in his Antiquites of the Jews, book 6, chapter 14, section 9, King Saul had reigned 18 years while Samuel was alive, and then another 22 years after his death. Therefore it was also likely that David was initially anointed by Samuel this very year. This means David, the youngest of his family was about 10 years of age when he was initially anointed by Samuel.

4th year.
(I Kings 6:1)
968 BC
4th year of King Solomon's reign began on Tuesday August 19th in 968 BC. It was exactly 480 years of redemption but 592 historical years. First Kings 6:1 states; "And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel had come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month of Ziv, which is the second month, that he began to build the House of the LORD." (NKJV). The House of the LORD was intended to be the permenant residence for the atoning animal sacrifices. It therefore makes logical sense that God would place the 480 year marker during the first year of construction for the first Jerusalem temple a permenant residence for the sacrificial services of the Levites. Acts 13:20-23, clearly contradicts the 480 years of I Kings 6:1 because most people do not realize there are specific years in the Lord's chronology of redemption that God does not count, (exactly 112 uncounted years at this point in time).
481 years of atonement began
on Tishri 1 this year.
967 BC

The second month of Solomons' 4th year began on Friday eve March 14th in 967 BC. Construction on the first Jerusalem temple began during the second month. The kings of Judah used Tishri - Tishri dating for the reigns of kings.

Solomon's temple was completed in the eighth month of his 11th year. It took 7 years to build (I Kings 6:37,38)
In terms of factual time it took 6 years and 7 months but God addresses this in terms of whole numbers. This also helps to prove that Tishri - Tishri dating was being used for the Kings of Judah starting with Saul and ending with Zedekiah

Upon the death of Jeroboam II, Zechariah the son of Jeroboam II began his 6 month reign in the 38th year of Azariah (II Kings 15:8). His 6 month reign therefore began sometime between August 755 BC - August 754 BC.The evidence suggest he was killed in the later half of that Tishri year. Zechariah was killed by Shallum in front of the people and Shallum reigned in his place.
755 BC
38th year King Azariah
His 38th year spanned from Aug/Sept. 755 BC-Aug/Sept 754 BC

However Shallum's one month riegn began sometime after Aug/Sept. in the 39th year of Azariah (II King 15:13). But Shallum was killed by Menahem in this same 39th year of Azariah and he reigned 10 years. Mehahem's reign likely began about Nisan 753 BC. Menahem reigned ten years.

According to Edwin Thiele there was a schism in the northern kingdom around this time and Mehahem ruled from Samaria and Pekah set up a rival reign in Gilead. (Mysterious Numbers of the Hebrew Kings, p.120). After the death of Menahem and his son Pekahiah, then Pekah a general in his army ruled Samaria. However that synchronism for Pekah tells us his sole reign began in the 52nd year of Azariah. But another synchronism says Jotham began to reign in the second year of Pekah (II Kings 15:32). Pekah began his reign in 751 BC. It is also possible that the Hebrew civil year used for the reigns of Kings and begun under the reforms of Jehu were still in effect and remained so until Israel was carried away captive.

It was likely sometime during the previous Hebrew civil year, Jotham's accession year, when King Azariah entered the temple in Jerusalem and began to unlawfully burn incense on the altar of incense in the temple. God struck him with leprosy and he lived confined as a leper in a separate house and Jotham succedded him as king.
Jotham began to reign in the 2nd year of Pekah (II King 15:32).

According to Josephus it was likely in this final year of his reign (probably early in 743 ) when Menahem paid 1,000 talents of silver tribute to Tiglath Pileser III. He was only able to do this by taxing the rich of the land 50 drachme apiece. After this he died and Pekahiah his son reigned in his place. This was his accession year.

20th year of King Pekah. He was assassinated in the 20th year of Jotham by Hoshea (II Kings 15:30). Three of Israels' northern tribes were taken into captivity this year when Tiglath Pilesar III removed them to Assyria. Although this was the 19th year of Johtam's reign it was his 20th overall when his accession year is also counted.
(I Chronicles 5:26), (II King 15:29).
.

732 BC
After Tiglath Pileser took captive some
of the peoples from northern Israel this year marked the start of 217
consecutive years of captivity that God does not count in His alendar of redemption!

3rd year King Ahaz
The coalition of Pekah and Rezin could not defeat Ahaz in Jerusalem this year (II Kings 16:5). Ahaz sent gold and silver to Tiglath Pileser III with the message "I am your servant and son. Come up and save me from the hand of the king of Syrian and the King of Israel who rise up against me."
19th & final year Jotham
Although this was Jotham's nineteenth year of reign it was his 20th overall when his accession year is counted. It was in this twentieth year of Jotham when Hoshea led a conspiracy against Pekah and reigned in his place. This 20th year of Jotham extended from late August 732 BC - mid August 731 BC.
114
In a conspiracy Pekah was killed by Hoshea sometime before the start of the seventh month (Tishri) when Jotham's over-all 20th year would have ended (before August 731 BC).. Tiglath Pileser boasted about making Hoshea king upon removing the northern tribes. It is believed that Tiglath Pileser III appointed Hoshea as king ( James B. Pritchard, ed., Ancient Near Eastern Texts Relating to the Old Testament, 3rd ed.; Princeton NJ: Princeton University Press, 1969, 284). Thus began the reign of Israel's final king, Hoshea, (II Kings 15:30). This was his accession year.

Crown Prince Hezekiah began his accession year. He must have been about 14 years old this year. This happened in the third year of Hoshea (II Kings 18:1). In chapter 18 we are also told Hezekiah was 25 years old when he began to reign. Undoubtedly that reference must be to his age when his sole reign began over Judah after the 16th and final year of his father, King Ahaz. Ahaz began to reign when he was 20 years old. This was now the seventh year of his reign. Ahaz, his father must have been only 14 years old when he fathered Hezekiah. This was certainly a possibility considering the social mores of that ancient era.

Shalmaneser besieged Samaria for three years and it was finally taken captive this year. The Biblical text states; "Now it came to pass in the fourth year of King Hezekiah, which was the seventh year of Hoshea the son of Elah, King of Israel, that Shalmaneser King of Assyria came up against Samaria and besieged it. And at the end of three years they took it. In the sixth year of Hezekiah , that is the ninth year of Hoshea king of Israel , Samaria was taken."
Samaria and its' king was removed this year but it appears Hoshea after being imprisoned for a short period of time was re-established as King over a de-populated nation in this year.

13th year King Ahaz was from Aug/Sept 722 BC - Aug/Sept 721 BC.

Assyrian captivity of Israel was completed by 721 BC. Hoshea was now king over a depopulated nation that was resettled with foreigners.from many different nations.
After being imprisoned for a short period of time Hoshea must have been restored to the throne in the 12th year of Ahaz, 723/722 BC (II Kings 17:1), (II King 18:10).
721 BC
14th year King Ahaz
7th year of crown prince Hezekiah
By the year 722/721 BC the captivity of Israel by Assyria was finally accomplished. From the year 732 BC until 515 BC when the New Jerusalem temple was finished, either Israel and then Judah was in captivity for a total of 217 consecutive years. Adding Israel's uncounted Exodus year to the 111 uncounted years during the period of the Judges totals 112 years. When the 112 years are then added to the 217 consecutive years it totals 329 uncounted years. God does not count these 329 years in His calendar of redemption. It could be said that the new Jerusalem temple figuratively speaking represented the New Covenant mentioned in Jeremiah chapter 31.

The sixth year of the seven year Sabbath Year Luna cycle ended on Nisan 9 in 705 BC. In the harvest of the sixth year God provided a bumper crop because the land was to rest in the seventh year. This means Hezekiah would have food enough for the next three years when he was threatened by Sennacherib.

Sennacherib came against all the fortified cities of Judah and took them in the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah. Then Sennacherib assessed Hezekiah 300 talents of silver and 30 talents of gold. Hezekiah had to strip all the gold found in the House of the Lord and in the Kings treasuries in order to appease the King of Assyria.
The 15th year of Hezekiah did not begin until Sept. in 703 BC. Prior to Sept. the King of Assyria sent one of his commanders with a message stating a great army would soon sieze Jerusalem. It was still in the fourteenth year beginning in 703 BC when King Hezekiah trusted in the word of God spoken by Isaiah the prophet regarding Jerusalem when threatened by Sennacherib. The Angel of the LORD killed 185,000 Assyrian soilders in one night.

624 BC
18th year of King Josiah. It was during this year that King Josiah made a new covenant before God with the people of Jerusalem and Judah. This happened after the Book of the Law was found in the temple. There was a great revival of truth and purging of idolitry throughout the land and later in that same 18th year they celebrated a great Passover celebation such as had not been celebrated since the time of the Judges. The Passover mentioned in Josiah's 18th year took place on March 7th (Nisan 14) in 623 BC.
Ezekiel's chapter four symbolic siege enactment against Jerusalem portrays the day/year principle of judgement against the sins of Judah and Israel. The reason for the disproportionate allotment (40 days for Judah vs 390 days for Israel) was because of the new covenant King Josiah enacted this very year. Forty Luna years measured from Nisan 1 in 624 BC brings one to Shevat 30 in 586 BC (Dec. 26th in the 19th year of Nebuchadnezzar). Whereas 390 Luna years measured from the year Solomon's temple was completed (961 BC) brings one to Feb./ March in 582 BC, the 23rd year of Nebuchadnezzar. This was the last year of known deportations from Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar, (Jeremiah 52:30).

31st & final year of King Josiah. The 31st year of Josiah spanned from Aug/Sept 611 BC- Aug/Sept 610 BC. He was likely killed about /May in 610 BC when Pharaoh Neco made his first of two advances north to assist the King of Assyria against the Babylonians. According to Babylonian chronicle 21901 in the British Museum, Pharaoh Neco depated Egypt this year, in the 16th year of Nabopolassar (610 BC) to help the King of Assyria. However, King Josiah tried to delay his march north but an archer from Necos' army shot an arrow that wounded and killed King Josiah. According to Josephus, at this point Josiah commanded a retreat and a battle never ensued between Neco and Josiah. But Josiah died as a result of his injuries and the people of Judah put Jehoahaz the son of Josiah on the throne of Judah. Jehoahaz reign began on Tishri 1 in 610 BC and he reigned only 3 months before he was removed by Pharaoh Neco when Neco was returning to Egypt.

610 BC
Jehoahaz reigned for 3 months beginning on Tishri1 this year.
Pharaoh Neco stoped in Jerusalem on his way back to Egypt after a failed expedition to help the King of Assyria. He deposed King Jehoahaz and fined him 100 talents of silver and one talent of Gold (this amount of silver was the same used for the 100 silver sockets that were used as a foundation for Moses wilderness tabernacle). Likewise the seven branched gold lampstand that provided light within the tabernacle was made of one talent of gold. Neco then retruned to Egypt to strengthen his army and and upon strengthening his army he returned to Jerusalem to collect the assessed fine but Jehoahaz did not pay so Neco removed him as king and set his brother Eliakim as the new King of Judah. Eliakim became Jehoiakim and his long accession year began in November of 610 BC. This was Jehoiakims' accession year. The first year of his reign began on Tishri 1 in 609 BC (Aug. 12th).

It was in this civil year (probably 606 BC) that King Nebuchadnezz first besieged Jerusalem. According to the Babylonian chronicles this was the year when Nebuchadnezzar began to wear the crown and he is refered to as the crown prince. Therefore the title of King before he actually became king should be understood such as in Daniel 1:1 where Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon besieged Jerusalem.
239
606 BC
4th year of King Jerhoikim spanned from Aug/Sept 606 BC - Aug/Sept 605 BC. In the fourth year of King Jehoiakim, Nebuchadnezzar soundly defeated Pharaoh Neco at the battle of Carchemish. Neco lost all the land between Egypt and Syria to Nebuchadnezzar. This happened about May/June of 605 BC.

This was also the 1st year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar from the Hebrew calendar perspective. After defeating the Egyptians and learning about the death of his father, Nebuchadnezzar crossed the desert in 21 days and began his reign on Elul 1 in 605 BC. Therefore according to the Hebrew method his actual reign began next month on Tishri 1 this year. He had a one month accession period upon the death of his father Nabopolassar.
Nebuchadnezzar instructed Ashpenaz to bring back some of the kings descendants and nobles of Judah and this likely happend in 605 BC.

11th & final year of King Jehoiakim.
7th year Nebuchadnezzar (Hebrew reckoning, Tishri-Tishri)
King Jehoiakim was killed outside the walls of Jerusalem about Nov/Dec this year. His son Jehoiachin began his long accession period. According to the Babylonian chronicles this was the 6th year of Nebuchadnezzar (Babylonian reckoning).. He dispatched his army from 'Hattu" in the month of Kislev. Undoubtedly he dispatched a sizable group to Jerusalem this year. It is my strong personal opinion the daily sacrifice was abolished this very year. In this 7th year of Nebuchadnezzar there were 3023 people removed from Jerusalem, (Jeremiah 52:28). The writings of Josephus give more details telling us the king and principle men of the city were slain along with the captivity of 3023 chief people. Without the Levites the daily sacrifice came to an end this year. This was the first time it happened in Jerusalem. The addendum near the end of Daniel chapter twelve states: "From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1335 days. By measuring 1,290 days (years) from 599 BC brings one to the year 692 AD. This was the very year the Dome of the Rock was dedicated in Jerusalem. It has an inscription marking its' completion in the year 691/692 AD. This is undoubtedly the abomination of desolation spoken about in Matthew chpater 24. Adding the additional 1335 days (years) brings the calculation to the year 2027 AD exactly 2,000 solar years from the year Jesus was baptised and began His ministry. From the wording at the end of Daniel chapter 12 it states; "blessed is the one who waits, and come to the one thousand three hundred and thrty-five days". In other words most or all tribulation will cease from this point forward (2027 AD), and the millenial reign of peace will begin.

598 BC
King Jehoiachin began his 3 month reign on August 13th, 598 BC. His accession period of 9 months began Nov/Dec, 599 BC, upon the death of his father King Jehoiakim, whos dead boby was cast outside to the heat by day and the frost at night against the walls of Jerusalem in Nov/Dec of 599 BC, (Jeremiah 36:30). According to the writings of Josephus, Nebuchadnezzar regretted making Jehoiachin king so he returned to Jerusalem the following year. Nebuchadnezzar besieged the city but Jehoiachin and some of the royalty surrended outside the walls of Jerusalem in the middle of November 598 BC. However many others remained inside the city until the 2nd day of Adar (Jan. 9th, 597 BC) when the city was finally captured and a king was appointed by Nebuchadnezzar (King Zedekiah). Zedekiah's 7 month accession period began .

1st year King Zedekiah
At the beginning of this year (Nisan), the King of Babylon carried away to Babylon many of the treasures from the temple and 10,000 prominant people of Jerusalem, only the poorest people remained. They likely departed Jerusalem on the 10th day of the first month (Nisan). Ezekiel makes a reference to what may have been the anniversary day of the day they departed Jerusalem (Ezekiel 40:1).That departure day (Nisan 10) would have been February 15th in 597 BC. Zedekiah began a seven month accession period until Tishri 1 when his 11 year reign began on August 30 in 597 BC (a leap year).

4  Now it came to pass in the ninth year of his reign, in the tenth month, on the tenth day of the month (Dec. 9th), that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and all his army came against Jerusalem and encamped against it; and they built a siege wall against it all around. 5  So the city was besieged until the eleventh year of King Zedekiah. 6  By the fourth month, on the ninth day of the month, the famine had become so severe in the city that there was no food for the people of the land. 7  Then the city wall was broken through, and all the men of war fled and went out of the city at night by way of the gate between the two walls, which was by the king's garden, even though the Chaldeans were near the city all around. And they went by way of the plain. (Jeremiah 52: 4-7, NKJV).
