I am researching material into the 607 BCE debate (what debate?) for a series of articles I want to run off in the new year on my JWB blog, and as usual, JWN has proven so valuable. Thing is, I need to try and explain 607 BCE to a layman. You see, disproving it is ever so simple, but what why is it important to disprove it? What significance does that date have on the Jehovah's Witness faith?
Can any of you try to explain what the Watchtower doctrine on 607 BCE is within a couple of paragraphs (including 1914,1919, Daniel's prophecy, etc.)? If you can, it would be such a big help to me.
