¿When was the Creation according to the Tanack? At what time was the universal flood? When was the Temple of Israel constructed? The Bible has the answers to this questions. We only need to have confidence in the Word of the Eternal Creator and to know the given dates in the Tanack (A.T.); with them we can interlace the dates with some certainty and discover what we are looking for.
To begin we have to ask ourselves what Biblical date do we know with certain certainty? We know with extra biblical certainty that the 9th Av of 586 BCE (before the common Era) was shattered by the Babylonians the Temple of Salomon.
Known data outside the Bible
-9 day of Ab 586 BCE was destroyed Salomon’s Temple (Beit Hamikdash).
WHEN CONSTRUCTION BEGAN AT SALOMON’S TEMPLE?
We add to 586 586 BCE was destroyed the Temple of Salomon
+ 374 The First Temple lasted 374 years
——— 960 + 7 years of construction = 967
967 BEC was the year when Salomon began to construct his temple.
WHEN THE CHILDREM OF ISRAEL CAME OUT OF ISRAEL?
According to 1 KIngs 6:1
“In the year four hundred and eighty after the children of Israel left Egypt, the fourth year of the beginning of the Kingdom of Solomon on Israel, in the month of Zif, which is the second month, he began to build the house of YHWH”.
We add to 967
+ 480 Years after the children of Israel left Egypt (Acts 13:17-22 is incorrect)
1447 BEC Exodos happened on the 14 of Abid 1447 BEC (Pesaj)
WHEN YHWH ESTABLISHED PACT WITH ABRAHAM?
Says in Galatians 3:17
“The pact previously ratified by Elohim for Mashiach, the law that came four hundred thirty years later, did not eliminated it, to invalidate the promise”.
Ans in Exodus 12:40 “The time that the children of Israel inhabited in Egypt was four hundred and thirty years”.
We add to 1447
1877 BEC (Abraham)
Abraham was 75 years old in 1877 BCE when YHWH established a pact with him.
WHEN DID THE UNIVERSAL FLOOD HAPPEN?
According to Genesis 11:10-26 “These are the generations of Sem: … Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, a Nacor y a Harán”.
Total: 350 years since Sem until the birthdate of Abraham
Sem was 100 years old (Gen 11:10) . 2 years before the flood.
We add to
1877 Elohim established pact with Abraham
+ 350 Generations from Sem with 100 years of age and the birth of Abraham + 2 years of difference between Sem 100 years of age and the flood.
+ 75 Age of Abraham
2304 BCC (Flood)
The Flood happened on 2304 BCE
WHEN DIDTHE CREATION OF THER WORLD ACCORDING TO TORAH HAPPEN?
Says in Genesis 1 to Genesis 7:6
There are 10 generations from Adam to the flood for a total of 1656 years. Including Adam, Set, Enoch, Cainan, Mahalel, Jared, Enoch, Metusalem, Malec and Noe.
We add to 2304
+ 1656 10 generations from Adam until the flood.
3960 BCE (Creation)
Creation happened on the 3960 BCE
WHEN DOES YESHUA THE MESSIAH OF ISRAEL COMES?
From Creation to the return of Mashiach
We add to 3960
+ 2017 This year
5977 EC from Creation
Says in 2 Peter 3:8 “But, o Beloved, do not ignore this: that for with Elohim one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years as a day”.
If we have 7 days x 1000 = 7000 years. And in the Seventh Millenian we will lived with the Mashiach of Israel for 1000years as it says in Revelation 20 (Eternal Shabbat),
We subtract from 6000
23 years to the return of Yeshua Ha Mashiach give or take 10 years.
Food for thought, blessings everyone.
