When did the Mabul (Flood of Noach)happen? When did the Exodus occur? In what year did the prophet Daniel interpret the “hand writing on the wall” for the ill-fated Babylonian monarch Belshatzar?
If you want to know the history of a people–ask those people. Matis Kantor draws from rich Jewish sources such as Seder Olam, the Talmud, Midrash and other deeply relevant sources that reveal the exact time line of Jewish history. And, he demonstrates that the Jewish People offer a Chronology unlike any other ancient culture. The Jewish time line of history is free of omissions—something no other ancient culture can claim—not the Egyptians, Greeks or Romans. Time has always been sacred to the Jews and because it is sacred, they have recorded every pivotal milestone through time. No serious student of antiquity should be without this valuable text. Highly recommended.
