But the fact is, it CAN be understood if the effort is expended in understanding it.
Let me clarify, please.
What CAN be understood is whatever explanation that appeals to your presuppositions. Why? Because whatever "facts" you assemble appeal to your bias.
But, let's be real. The Bible DOES NOT teach chronology. No argument is presented in scripture proving 1914 or asserting a date for the fall of Jerusalem.
What does that leave you with? It leaves you with 20th century crackpot assertions about chronology (some of them "proved" by the Great Pyramid).
Now, how many people were convinced the Great Pyramid was "God's witness in stone?" Not people with two heads, I assure you!
I'll tell you who believed: people who thought it sounded wonderful and who shivered with delight when all those measurements (in pyramid inches) came together to pinpoint "actual dates" in history!
Except that IT DIDN'T!!
Arguing with fools makes us a fool.
