Let me reiterate Yigal's comments that statements of faith or statements which attack any particular faith have no place on this forum. Persistence in posting such statements could jeopardise your subscription to B-Hebrew.

Ron, the chronological issues are very complex and there is no easy answer. The best anyone can come up with is the perceived chronology held by the latest generation of biblical redactors (this is not the same as actual chronology), and even that is questionable. There are too many variables to derive a definitive chronology of any kind. The most realistic approach will simply have certain dates which may be corroborated by other sources, and there are only a handful of those. Everything in between will be largely guesswork or wishful thinking.
