CHAPTER XI REIGNING LINE INTERRUPTED Edit

[171]

I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him."-Ezekiel 21:24-27.

The interruption to the reigning of David's royal line was directly from Almighty God, but was only temporary. It must continue only until the coming of David's worthy Heir, the Seed of God's "woman". Then Jehovah would crown the Kingdom covenant aith glory by giving the Government unto him "whose right it is" to rule. Jehovah's covenant will never fail.-Jeremiah 33:15-22,25,26.

Footnote Edit

IMPORTANT: In the book "The Truth Shall Make You Free", published in 1943、the chronology on pages 150, 151 concerning the kings of Jerusalem, from Solomon’s successor to Zedekiah, is based on the book of 2 Chronicles, chapters 12 to 36. This appears to show the reigns of those kings as successive, end to end. Actually, however, this was not so, as is plainly shown in the books of 1 and 2 Kings, which books give us a countercheck on the successors of Solomon by a comparison of these kings of Israel. The chronological TABLE OF CONTEMPORARY KINGS AND PROPHETS AND RELATED EVENTS, on the next four pages, shows how the books of 1 and 2 Kings give a more accurate check on the reigns of the kings of Judah than does 2 Chronicles.

Measured by 2 Chronicles, the period of kings from Saul to Zedekiah was 513 years. Measured by the more precise and detailed books of Kings, the period was actually 511 year, or 2 years less. This fact affects the chronology as a whole and pulls man’s creation 2 years closer to A.D. 1 and gives it the date 4026 B.C., not 4028 B.C.

The following chronology shows the date of Jerusalem’s destruction as in the year 607 before Christ. This recognizes the fact that the ancient reckoning of the vulgar year began in the fall. In other words, the vulgar year 606 B.C. really began in the fall of 607 B.C. As stated on page 239 (¶1) of “The Truth Shall Make You Free”: “Inasmuch as the count of the Gentile ‘seven times’ began its first year at the fall of 607 B.C., it is simple to calculate when they end. From the fall of 607 B.C. to the fall of B.C. 1 is exactly 606 years.... Hence from the fall of B.C. 1 to the fall of A.D. 1914 is 1,914 years.”
