GOD MADE THIS GORGEOUS SYMBOL OF PENTECOST
"Chief Vatican Astronomer, Dr Gabriel Funes, stunned the world in May 2008 when he revealed that it is acceptable for Catholics to openly contemplate extraterrestrial life. In an interview he said:
"Just as there is a multiplicity of creatures on earth, there can be other beings, even intelligent, created by God. This is not in contrast with our faith because we can't put limits on God's creative freedom... "Why can't we speak of a 'brother extraterrestrial'? It would still be part of creation...
Both Funes and Consolmagno are scientific advisors to the Pope
A SIGN: "Asteroid 9 times size of ocean liner approaches Earth"
5-18-13 - "The 1998 QE2 asteroid has the physical mass to potentially deliver life on Earth a knockout punch, being 2.7km in length. It is to buzz our planet on May 31...
"Officially known as Asteroid 1998 QE2, the 'minor planet', as astronomers refer to these space objects, is about nine times the length of its name-sharing ocean liner, Queen Elizabeth 2....
"QE2's nearest approach happens on May 31 at 20:59 GMT, bringing the huge space rock to within 3.6 million miles (5.8 million km) of Earth - about 15 times the distance to the Moon....
"This is a really big asteroid, similar in size to the one that killed off the dinosaurs...
"Fortunately we've been tracking its orbit very carefully so we know with great certainty it won't hit us....
"Just days after the Russian meteor struck, the European Space Agency (ESA) announced a joint mission between Europe and the US that aims to strike an asteroid with a spacecraft.
The Joint European/US Asteroid impact and Deflection Assessment mission (AIDA) is preparing to intercept the asteroid Didymos in 2022, when it is about 6.5 million miles (11 million km) from Earth."
Marilyn, You had written:
"The son of God is the YHWH that sat on the sapphire pavement (meaning heaven) at Mt. Sinai"
I also believe that Jesus is Jehovah.
The Father is invisible:
John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
John 5:37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
John 6:46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
I Timothy 1:17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
I Timothy 6:16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.
I John 4:12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
So, whenever anyone saw the LORD, they saw the Son, who can be seen, because he is the visible image of the invisible Father:
II Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Colossians 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
Hebrews 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
That is why Jesus could say the following:
John 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
There are not three different Gods, with one God visible & another God invisible.
He is the same Jehovah. Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. He is one God. He is one LORD. He is one Spirit. He is one Jehovah.
From John 4:24 we know that God is a Spirit.
So if that is the very nature and essence of the Father, that he is a Spirit, that leads to a question.
If there were three different beings, each a Spirit, then which one would be the Holy Spirit?
Only the one that is called the Holy Spirit?
That would then imply that the Spirit that is the Father, wouldn't be a Holy Spirit, which would be ludicrous.
No, it is one Spirit, the Spirit of the LORD, which is a Holy Spirit, and he is Jehovah.
This is seen as follows:
Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
This one and the same Spirit is the same as the Spirit of the Father, while yet at the same time he is the Spirit of Christ.
However, Jehovah is only visible as the Son.
One time, the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape "like" a dove.
However, that doesn't mean that the Spirit is a separate, physical entity from the Son.
It doesn’t mean that the Spirit is always visible, either.
It also doesn't mean that the Spirit "is" a dove - No! the LORD is not a bird!
An omnipresent Spirit, that fills heaven and earth, and dwells in the heart of born again believers, is not a bird.
Jehovah is only really visible as the Son.
So that is why I agree with you that it was the Son that was seen on Mount Sinai.
It was the Son who appeared to Abraham, along with the two angels who later went to Sodom to rescue Lot.
For the same reason, I believe that it was the Son who walked in the garden with Adam.
What do you think Marilyn?
Does this make sense?
Am I way off, or would you consider that I'm an heretic?

I don't think you are a heretic, for goodness sake. I agree with you that it was the Son who walked in Eden with Adam. What you said makes sense.
Jesus is Jehovah (YHWH). The Father is invisible.
Joh_1:18 says, "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him."
Joh_4:24 says, "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."
There is one God that manifests himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
In the OT, it was the Son of God that was seen as the angel of the Lord. No man has seen the Father at any time, but he was manifest in Christ. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one. No one has ever seen the Father, but the Son can be seen at times in both the Old and New Testament.
The Son of God created everything.
Joh 1:1-3 says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made."
Isa 44:6 Thus saith the LORD (YHWH) the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God."
The Son of God sat on the sapphire pavement on Mt. Sinai. He is the one who gave the 10 commandments.
Isa 48:16-18 says, "Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord GOD (YHWH), and his Spirit (the Holy Spirit), hath sent me (YHWH the Son). 17 Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. 18 O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea".
Exo_24:10 And they saw the God of Israel (i.e., the Son of God): and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness."
Jesus was born on the Feast of Trumpets. His birthstone is September's sapphire, which means Heaven.
Ezekiel saw Jesus Christ, the only man/God, sitting on the sapphire throne in Heaven, i.e., on Saturn. Eze 1:1, 26-28. Heaven has rainbow rings around it, i.e., it is Saturn, the 3rd heaven (1. Mars, 2. Jupiter, 3. Saturn) Paul was caught up to (II Cor 12:2-4).
At the Rapture, like Paul, we will be caught up to the 3rd Heaven, Saturn.
Rev. 4:1-4 says, "After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. 2 And immediately I was (lit., became) in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. 3 And he (the God/man Jesus) that sat was to look upon like a jasper (last stone in the breastplate) and a sardine stone (first stone in the breastplate, i.e., Jesus is both the first and the last (Rev. 22:: and THERE WAS A RAINBOW ROUND ABOUT THE THRONE, in sight like unto an emerald (Judah's stone in the breastplate, i.e., Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah). 4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats (lit., thrones): and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders (12 patriarchs and 12 apostles of Israel) sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold."
Rev 5:8-10 says, "...saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on (epi, on or over) the earth."

A POST ON FIVE DOVES, Re: Gino (18 May 2013)
"RE: Michael Colunga: 05.17.13: Slumbering Laodiceans"
Michael, That was horribly convicting.
Of course I always love to think of myself as part of the church in Philadelphia.
However, if I was honest with myself, I'm more likely a part of the church of the Laodiceans.
Gino. You can't afford to be a lukewarm Laodicean and get left behind. You will arrive at heaven in tears on the Day of God's Wrath that way. They will be caught up at the last minute before Satan's asteroid Wormwood hits the Earth.
There is a better way. Stop and think. When you first accepted Christ, all your past sins were forgiven. However, any sins committed since then must be confessed to Christ to bring them under the blood of Christ.
Look at the last line in the following message to the Laodiceans. Those he loves, he rebukes and chastens. Please follow I John 1:9, which I will quote below.
Rev 3:14-19 says, "And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent."
1Jn 1:9 says, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
Confess any known sins, and the Lord will wipe away any others you don't remember. If he brings any others to mind, confess them immediately. After that, you have it made. You have washed your robe, and made it white in the blood of the Lamb.
Rev 7:14 says, "These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."
After that, just go by 1John 3:23 and I John 1:9.
1John 3:23 says, "And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another".
1John 1:9 says, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
Live by those two scriptures, every moment. Jesus lives within you. He knows your thoughts. You don't have to go confess to a priest or any such thing. You are living with Christ every moment.
In John 14:18-20, Jesus said, "I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you."
As soon as you slip and sin, confess it to Christ, even if you are in a crowd and have to do it silently, in your mind. Stay confessed up. Your prayer doesn't have to go anywhere. The Lord dwells in you. He knows your thoughts. Just say, "Lord forgive me for (whatever)."
The Lord can come at any time now. Don't delay one minute.
I prayed for you. Don't sleep on it. Please take this to heart. It is not hard to do, and it keeps you safe at every moment. If you don't, you will wish you had. Agape
A POST ADDRESSED TO ME ON FIVE DOVES
I'm sorry to know that you had this belief about having the hope of being with our loved ones someday when we all get to heaven. Please read about Jesus's teaching about the Marriage at the resurrection. Jesus telling us that there will be no marriage in heaven, we will all be like the angels. and i guess gender will not be a reality there. I believe that the only marriage that will happen in heaven is the Marriage of The Lamb and the Bride. I guess when we get to see the Lord face to face we will see His Glory and Majesty in awe and wonder, and we will not be mindful anymore of wanting to see our loved ones there, and we will long to be with the Lord than to be with our loved ones. God doesn't want another rebellion in His kingdom, if our loved ones will come between us and God. He doesn't want us to have our idols there.
> > there will be no marriage in heaven, we will all be like the angels.
That is exactly what I was worried about.
I read the scriptures below, but Ed and I were married here. We were already "one flesh." We were together 65 years without a fight. I could not be happy without him.
Long ago, the Lord answered Ed's prayer for a Christian wife. He chose me, and had to work some miracles to get this Indiana girl and Tennessee boy together.
My dad had to get transferred from Vigo Ordinance in Terre Haute, IN, to Safety Engineer at Holston Ordinance Works in Kingsport, TN. Then, he had to get my dad to move his family to Staff Quarters on HOW four miles out of town. Next, he had to get Ed home from Japan. He had set up the first Army Commissary in Japan after the war. The Lord had to get Ed's stepfather a job at HOW. Then, just before Ed's ship arrived at the US, God had to get Ed's family to move out of Kingsport to the Staff Quarters at HOW. After Ed got home, the Lord had to keep Ed alive in his month-long battle with poison ivy. He had been in the army hospital twice, 28 days with poison ivy and 30 days with poison oak. He went to a party where they burned wood that had poison ivy on it. Ed woke up the next morning with poison ivy all over him. They had to poke holes between his lips to get a straw in. He is more allergic to those plants than most doctors have ever seen. The army doctor had told him not to get it any more, that he might die. It gave him a fast heart, but in spite of scaring his mother that he was dying, he lived through it.
A little later, God had to stop me going with the boy I was dating, and Ed had to quit a job he had gotten in town. He had made up his mind to go to college rather than work for very little where they seldom gave raises. He took the GED test so he would not have to go back to High School, got enrolled in college at UT, Knoxville, and asked me to double-date with him, his brother, and my best girlfriend. On the day before the 4th of July, the 4 of us went to the carnival on Wednesday. By Saturday, Ed said, "Will you marry me?." I said, "Yes." Whether God did it, or it would have happened naturally, I don't know, but our love for each other is so strong, the Lord may have done it in answer to Ed's prayer for a Christian wife. I could never be happy in heaven if we were not together. I told him before he died that I loved him so much I wanted to be with him forever, and both God and Ed know that is the truth.
Now for the shocker! after being bedfast for a long time after a bout with pneumonia, Ed died at 87 on Dec. 27, 2011. He had picked up 2 other infections from the hospital, staff and C-dif. I had pneumonia too, but I got sent to a different hospital. I didn't pick up anything else, but have fibrosis of the lungs, and was able to get back on my feet, probably because I am 4.5 years younger than Ed.
On April 2, 2012, he came to see me. Yes! the real Ed, in his real celestial body!
I had just gotten up from the computer, laid down on the bed, and had propped my head up to watch TV, but I hadn't turned it on yet. In strode Ed at a fast clip. He was young looking, had his dark brown hair back, was dressed in what looked like a black silk suit made out of thin shirt material, and had an ear to ear grin on his face. I recognized him instantly. He came up between the dresser and bed and stood near my head.
I said, "How old are you, 30 or 33?" In his own natural voice, he said, "33."
I said, "Can we be together forever?" He said, "Yes."
I said, "Are there female angels in Heaven?" He said, "Yes."
I said, "Have you gotten with your family? He said, "Yes."
I said, "Have you gotten with my family? He said, "Yes."
I said, "Do you have a piano? He said, "Yes" and walked through the wall.
Now, I know what the celestial body is like, and I know that we can be together forever. We don't need to get married in Heaven. We are already married. We are already "one flesh."
Gen_2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be ONE FLESH."
Mat_19:5,6 says, "And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be ONE FLESH?" 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but ONE FLESH. WHAT THEREFORE GOD HATH JOINED TOGETHER, LET NOT MAN PUT ASUNDER."
Eph_5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be ONE FLESH."
Mat_22:30 "For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven."
Mar_10:8 And they twain shall be ONE FLESH: so then they are no more twain, but ONE FLESH."
Mar_12:25 " For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven."
Can Scripture disagree with Scripture? No! We are one flesh, and we will be together forever.
I am happy with how my life is turning out. I said, "Yes" to Jesus and "Yes" to Ed. Now, I get to be with both of them forever. What could be better?
It is hard to do without him now, but this will seem like a short time when compared with forever, and I know he is ok. Although he was 4.5 years older than me here, in Heaven, we will both be 33.
> > God doesn't want another rebellion in His kingdom, if our loved ones will come between us and God. He doesn't want us to have our idols there.
Ed prayed for a Christian wife. He encouraged me at every step of the way. He bought me an electric typewriter. Later, he bought me several computers. He enrolled me on the Internet the very day I finished my third book. He would never come between me and God.
I would never rebel against Jesus/God. I love him too much for anything like that. Ed is the same way. We are totally on the Lord's side.
> > we will all be like the angels. and i guess gender will not be a reality there.
Angels are in the masculine gender in the Bible. That is why I asked Ed if there were female angels in Heaven. I thought there would be, but R.B. Thieme thought that they were all masculine. I thought, "Why make any angels masculine if there were none that were feminine." Now, I know that just as God made mankind male and female, he made angels male and female. He made animals male and female too. Agape
INCOMING EMAIL, RE: the restored vision - help needed
Thank you for your detailed and interesting reply. A paste from your letter:
> Mt_12:40 can keep us on track. It says, "For as Jonas was three days and
three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and
three nights in the heart of the earth."
> Thursday, DAY
> Friday, night then DAY
> Saturday, night then DAY
> Sunday, night
This clearly says to me a MONDAY (after 12AM) resurrection. That is what I think. There have to be 3 COMPLETE nights in the grave. Jesus can't resurrect on any part of the 3rd night....
I can help. I have spent years on this. The Crucifixion was Nisan 13, 3790, Thursday, April 6, 30 AD. I did my main research at the BIOLA Library, La Mirada, CA.
Friday, night then DAY
Saturday, night then DAY
Not everyone agrees. Seyffarth, Thurman, Aldrich and Westcott picked a Thursday date. Africanus, Bengel, Gresswell and Rusk thought it was on Thursday, April 6, 30 AD, and I agree with them.
The Tractate Sanhedrin (43a GBT VII. p. 181, SBT pg. 281) in the Babylonian Talmud says, "On the Eve of Passover Yeshua was hanged." The Eve of Passover was Nisan 13, 3790, Thursday.
I just found it online: "On the eve of the Passover Yeshu34 was hanged. For forty days before the execution took place, a herald went forth and cried, 'He is going forth to be stoned because he has practised sorcery and enticed Israel to apostacy. Any one who can say anything in his favour, let him come forward and plead on his behalf.' But since nothing was brought forward in his favour he was hanged on the eve of the Passover!"
> > This clearly says to me a MONDAY (after 12AM) resurrection. That is what I think. There have to be 3 COMPLETE nights in the grave. Jesus can''t resurrect on any part of the 3rd night.
We are not at liberty to set the Resurrection on Monday. Scripture says it was the first day of the week, which to the Jews was Sunday.
Mar_16:2 says, "And very early in the morning the first day of the week (SUNDAY), they came unto the sepulchre AT THE RISING OF THE SUN."
Our Monday would start at 12 AM (midnight), but the Hebrew Monday would start at 6 PM Sunday.
Jesus could have been resurrected any time after 6 PM on Saturday night, the 7th day of the week, and daybreak Sunday morning.
Scripture doesn't say that the days and nights have to add up to 24 hour days. You are assuming that, and it leads to the wrong conclusion. The Jews counted a partial day as a full day.
The Talmud Mas. Pesachim 4a says, "Rab was the son of R. Hiyya's brother and the son of his sister.1 When he went up thither2 he [R. Hiyya] asked him, 'Is Aibu alive?' '[Ask me whether] my mother is alive,' he replied. 'Is your mother alive?' asked he. 'Is then Aibu alive?' he replied.3 [Thereupon] he [R. Hiyya] said to his servant, 'Take off my shoes and carry my [bathing] things after me to the baths.' From this three [laws] may be inferred: [i] A mourner is forbidden to wear shoes; [ii] on a delayed report [of death]4 it [sc. mourning] is observed for one day only;5 and [iii] PART OF THE DAY IS AS THE WHOLE OF IT."
If you don't understand that a part of a day is counted as a whole, you can't figure out when the crucifixion actually took place. No matter which day you think the crucifixion was on, Jesus died around 3 PM, and you cannot disregard the hours left until that day ended at 6 PM. You also can't think that Jesus was resurrected in the morning of the first day of the week and count that as one day. Your hanging on to your concept of a day having to be 24 hours will keep you from realizing the truth. Crucifixion day was part of a day. Resurrection was part of a day. Yet, you have to account for parts of both days to understand how it all ties together. Friday and Saturday were 24-hour days, but Thursday and Sunday were partial days, yet you have to take them into account. We have to count Thursday (day) and Sunday (night).
We are not told that Jonah was cast out of the boat at exactly 6 PM in the evening, when the new day began. However, the careful way the Lord works, he probably was cast into the sea at 3 PM. Yet, we would have to count that day as day one even though it ended three hours later.
Mt_12:40 says, "For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."
Keep in mind that every Jewish date started with the 12 hours of the night (6 PM to 6 AM), then came the 12 hours of the day (6 AM to 6 PM).
Thursday, DAY (3 PM to 6 PM)
Friday, night then DAY
Saturday, night then DAY
Sunday, night (6 PM to 6 AM)
During that time, Jesus preached to the spirits in prison.
1Pe 3:18,19 says, "Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: 19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison".
> > Anyway, I am having trouble charting the converrsion from lunar to lunisolar calendars at the Exodus. I understand there was a New Moon on April 28, meaning if Nisan goes beyond March 29 then intercalation occurs that year. I understand how intercaltion works, I just can't understand how and when to begin it after Moses recieves instructions in Exodus 12:1-2.
The Jews added the extra month, Abib II, if there was no Abib barley for the Feast of Firstfruits.
There is an explanation of the Jewish Calendar on
However, don't use that calendar if your date will be before the Gregorian Calendar began. Hillel added some postponements that throw off the Hebrew Calendar in 30 AD by two days. If you want to use the fourmilab calendar in 30 AD, you will have to add two days to the Hebrew date. Then the Julian date and day of the week will be correct. I didn't try it for the Exodus, only the Crucifixion.

I sure wish I had access to it when I was working on my Bible Chronology. I found Martin Anstey's books the best. They were so precious, you couldn't check them out, you had to use them at the BIOLA Library, La Mirada, CA. Many students needed to use them often.
A quick way to judge if an author is right or not is to see if they have the Flood at 1656 AH. That is correct.
My Old Testament Bible Chronology is available at:
Below are two excerpts that might be helpful in your research. The Flood was in 1656 AH, 2387 BC.
"1656 AH = 2387 BC The Flood after Methuselah died at 969 (Gen 7:27), when Noah was 600 (Gen 7:6).
Beginning of the 427-year Dispensation of Human Government
DOUBLE CHECK: Methuselah lived 969 years and then the Flood came, Genesis 5:27. (687 AH + 969 = 1656 AH).
DOUBLE CHECK: Noah was 600 yrs old when the Flood came, Gen 7:6. (1056 AH + 600 = 1656 AH).
DOUBLE CHECK: Adam lived 930 yrs. Methuselah lived 969 yrs. Their lives overlapped 243 yrs. (930 + 969 = 1899 - 1656 to Flood = 243, making any changes difficult)"
"Joseph died at 110. (2259 AH + 110 = 2369 AH) Dr. Ehlert (head librarian at BIOLA library, La Mirada, CA said, "The result arrived at is characterized by the accuracy and certainty of an exact science. It cannot be one year more. It cannot be one year less. This is so mathematically exact and so absolutely certain, that since Ussher proved that Terah was 130 when Abram was born, no chronologer, who accepts the text of the Old Testament, has ever made the period covered by the Book of Genesis from the Creation of Adam to the death of Joseph anything else but 2369 years."
I was so lucky to have Dr. Ehlert show me where to find the reference books I would need. He was a great help. His Syllabus showed me how to solve the Gordian knots in Bible Chronology. That saved me an enormous amount of time.
