Dr. Floyd Nolen Jones, over a period of 20 years, has reviewed all of the great Bible
Chronology works of history and has painstakingly assembled a grand solution based on
a literal interpretation of the Bible (Hebrew Masoretic and Greek Textus Receptus) as the
supreme standard without error and having no equal.
In order to synchronize Bible Chronology to the Julian Calendar some dated event must
be found that is common to both timelines. Dr. Jones has selected the fall of Jerusalem
in 586 BC as the event with the least probability of error. We fully concur. This event
occurs in the reign of Nebuchadnezzar. The 37th year of his reign has been established
as the most reliable absolute date in the sixth century BC. Archeological records were
found (Astronomical Diary VAT 4956, now in the Berlin Museum) which give details on
30 observations of the moon and the five then known planets observed in Babylon in
the 37th year of Nebuchadnezzar which is verified by computer as 568 / 567 BC (spring
The Astronomical Diary is the basis for establishing absolute Julian dates for the reign of
the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar. Thus, the fall of Jerusalem which occurred in the
19th year of his reign (2 Kings 25:8) is firmly established as 586 BC.
Dr. Jones' graphical triangulation procedure which further anchors the period of the
Hebrew Kings, is by far the most powerful analytic problem solver that has ever been
applied to Biblical Chronology. Dr. Jones uses this procedure to simultaneously solve all 59
Bible verses that link the divided Kingdoms of Israel and Judah. This enables him to plot
a very precise timeline of the Hebrew Kings in the Julian calendar system. To further lock
in the Hebrew Kings time line, Dr. Jones uses 22 additional verses to triangulate between
the last five Hebrew Kings and the Babylonian Kings Nebuchadnezzar and Evil Merodach.
Thus, a total of 81 scriptures graphed simultaneously allow no further movement or
adjustment. Public display of the grand solution is impressive as it stretches across the
front of the auditorium.
As a further validation, the details of Adad Guppi's 104 year life as documented on a two
stele grave inscription exactly syncronizes with Jones' grand solution. A recorded lunar
eclipse in the 5th year of Nabopolassar (father of nebuchadnezzar) on 22 April 621 BC
(Julian) also perfectly agrees with Dr. Jones' timeline.
With Bible Chronology as the back bone, accurate World History is anchored in the Bible
and the astronomical heavenly bodies.
Dr. Jones' approach to calculating the years from Creation to Christ is as follows :
His work "The Chronology of the Old Testament" is a masterpiece that ranks equal to if
not greater than Archbishop Ussher's "The Annals of the World".
