Oops that would be column 3 passage 18. Apologies.
This is what is known as corroborative history. Two separate accounts by both cultures show that the siege of Jerusalem c. 701 BCE, likely actually occurred, even though some details of that event may never be known.
It was one of the arguments used against Biblical Minimalists.
We all make boo boo's.:)
It's actually very interesting...

Easy stuff when accounts are written after the described events. That's how prophecy works.
The attempts at reformation by Hezekiah (which were unsuccessful, BTW) and rebellion against the king of Assyria are what caused the siege, silly. No rebellion, pay trubute, no siege.
Also notice the very important point that the culture and the Jerusalem Temple were polytheistic at the time. These reformation attempts were the beginning of trying to make Judah a monotheistic culture. Josiah tried the same thing, also unsuccessfully. The post-exilic community leaders finally succeeded.
Your correct, I think I'll look into it a little more tomorrow...:)

I just don't believe everything I read. Nor should you.
Lol... I don't.:)*Btw, I have been researching, and gathering info. on why pages and verses are missing in the Bible?... You might not care for my answers, but I'll give it a shot...

Ooh, I agree.

Now throw Hezekiah's Tunnel into the mix and we find pieces of history.

History is always more fascinating than mythology, IMO, of course.

It would be more accurate to say that verses were added into the Bible and then recently removed when earlier manuscripts without those verses were found.

It is an attempt to be true to the authors.

<quoted text>I hear that a lot. Paul wasn't really a bad guy, just very insecure.

Who you follow is your bidness.

The reality is that when someone claims to follow Jesus, ignores the teachings of Jesus and then quotes Paul, they should expect to get corrected.

This is the 21st century, ya know.
It is? Cheers X. The irony of this is that I never paid much attention to Paul before reading these, um, Paul rants but it's cool, you can after all, think what you like about me. Hardly any point to being serious in toxic.

<quoted text>I am still not in agreement with you on Paul. However, I agree with you on your statement regarding Christians. I just wish they would be honest and/or intelligent enough to admit that they follow Paul and Constantine's religion, not Jesus' teachings and religion.

On a side note I wish Jews would admit they follow the teachings of Maimonides not the relgion of Judah or Moses.
Equal opportunity prejudice, that I can respect, a little.

<quoted text>Mary Magdalene. The first to arrive at the empty tomb and "carry the message" of the 'risen' Jesus. Without her the men would still be hiding in the upper room.

A woman who Pope Gregory called a whore in 591 and Christians continued telling this lie to this very day.

A woman who was most likely the "Apostle Jesus loved" and may have even been married to, and fathered children with, Jesus.
Nuh uh... It was Steve Rogers, he told me.

<quoted text>Yeah, I do tend to villify Paul more than he deserves. He was probably as decent as the average used car salesman, not 'evil'.
Interesting description. Reminiscent of certain toxic posters...

Hah! I was just reading about Hezekiah's Tunnel..
*Absolutely, history is always more fascinating than mythology...IMHO as well...
One of my favorite places that I have traveled was to Rome... Lots of history there...eh?
*In one of the museums in Florence, I almost knocked over a bust. I was a curious child, and pushed on it, and it started to wobble... Lol Luckily, it did not fall. The busts were just on pedestals for all to see and touch. Not good. ha!

Actually what I am finding is that the verses were already there, and have been removed... More to come.:)

I think it might be enlightening...:)

Have you ever heard this before?

* What do you think of Psalm 117 - being the shortest chapter of the Bible. Then, Psalm 119 - being the longest. The center chapter being 118.
There are 594 chapters before ch.18
There are 594 chapters after ch. 18 / Add them together = 1188
*Stay with me now...
What is the center verse in the Bible? Psalm 118:8 Cool huh?

*What does Psalm 118:8 say? It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

Coincidence? or God's plan...
Just thought it was kinda cool...:)
