Oh yeah! Guess what? Josephus claims there were 70 years from the last deportation until the 1st of Cyrus! I wonder where he got that notion from?

Xerxes and Artaxerxes I were the same king. You can now prove that by the bas-reliefs at Persepolis where it shows clearly an emphasis on the right hand of Xerxes. Artaxerxes I became known as "Artaxerxes, LONGIMANUS"... thus his longer right hand was legendary even when he was Xerxes. The Persian kings had double names and Ezra used "Artaxerxes" to refer to Xerxes. It's just that simple.

So, if in your mind somewhere you think that the current chronology is right or that Xerxes and Artaxerxes were different kings, then you're living in a fantasy world.

The Bible's chronology is absolutely the most accurate history. In that sense, it dates the 1st of Cyrus to 455 BCE.

Add 70 years to get year 23, the last deportation. That means year 37 falls in 511 BCE which is confirmed by the VAT4946.

So it's FULL CIRCLE folks. The only way you think 587 BCE or 607 BCE is the year for the fall of Jerusalem is by fantasy at this point. Fantasy or stubborness.

Time is running out, and so is God's patience.

So keep on playing blind, deaf and dumb all you want. When Armageddon starts and your sorry little necks are on the line, then it will be a different story.
