Jubilee Years -- finally I understand them

Joshua 14:15b -- Conquest of the Promised Land Completed
"Then the land had rest from war."

Hence, the Israelites started tilling the ground.  Forty-nine years later was the first Jubilee Year.  The Jubilee is not a separate and distinct calendar year.  Instead, it starts on the Day of atonement in the 49th year and goes to the same day of the next year, which is counted as the first year in the next cycle.  See Jones, The Chronology of the Old Testament.

Thus, the first Jubilee started in 1395 BC.  The 30th Jubilee was in AD 27, the year Jesus read from Isa 61:1-2a,the acceptable year of YHWHandliberty to the captives: Lu 4:16-21.  That is, he read that text when it counted for real, in that Jubilee Year.  See the full list of dates at Joshua 14:15b.

Bible scholars and tenth-grade algebra

Numbers 1-2 – Some “scholars” think these numbers are too big, suggesting that Hebrew ‘eleph should not be translated “thousand” but something smaller.  Let’s do the algebra, just for three tribes:  Reuben 46x+500, Simeon 59x+300, and Gad 46x+650, which total 151x=450, according to the text, where we are substituting “x” for “thousand”.  Solve for x:

151x+450 = (46+59+45)x+(500+300+650), so
151x+450 =150x+1450, so subtracting
150x+450 from each side, we have
x = 1,000.  QED

The “scholars” are not as scholarly as 10th graders!  Russ Humphries brought this to my attention; he did the algebra for Judah’s group; any group or the whole of Israel will show the same.

Preview: New Paper 2B Published

To be published in April in the Journal of Creation 28(1).

Sneak preview:

I analyse the structure of Genesis and its likely sources.  It sheds light on the use of Hebrew toledoths, from which come "These are the generations/records of...", of which there are 11 in Genesis.  It also sheds light on the structure and meaning of Genesis 2:4 and why Genesis does not start with a toledoth -- because God has no father!

New document: Genesis 1 Parallels

I recently read an article by Rick Lanser, Creation or the Flood?, that inspired me to make a parallel to Genesis 1 of Psalm 104, some of Job 38, and some of Proverbs 8.  Rick focussed on those parallels but did not go so far as to present the full parallel.  I also inserted in that full parallel many other related verses, especially from Psalms and Isaiah.  Indeed, I placed at the end all such verses I could find in the Bible.  The result is this: Genesis 1 Parallels.  The parallel has some interesting implications, which I have made in a comments section.  This is Scripture interpreting Scripture at its finest, telling us how to understand the Creating and Making account (CMA).  Enjoy!
