After aligning the pharaohs of the Turin King List, Eve Engelbrite has also successfully aligned the kings of the Sumerian King List to the Bible’s history. The Sumerian King List (SKL) was written over 400 years before Moses compiled the narratives of Genesis which include genealogies of people who lived an average of 900 years prior to Noah’s Flood. Correspondingly, the SKL recorded reigns of 58 to 120 years for eight kings before “the flood.” Scholars knew the unit of the large Sumerian antediluvian reigns were days, easily solved by dividing them by Noah’s 360-day year to determine the regnal years; but they couldn’t figure out the unit for the reigns “after the flood.” This author has validated that post-flood units are months, because the calculations using months equal the sub-totals provided within the Sumerian King List.

We should not forget but we do – things ‘normalize’ then it happens again and again.

Most believers view the resurrection of the Lord Jesus either through a historical or a prophetical lens. They tend to look backward or forward. Too often, sons and daughters of God fail to grasp the present-tense benefits that have come to us as a result of this grand, spiritual conquest that took place when the stone rolled away almost 2,000 years ago. Before we dive into those, let’s take a quick look at how we limit ourselves by adopting a purely past- or future-tense view of the resurrection.
In our increasingly secular, celebrity-obsessed, connected world, it’s no surprise that Facebook is read far more than the Bible, which a study highlighted this week as the giant of social media celebrated its 10th birthday. But it’s also true that millions of people who may not encounter the Bible in any other way are doing so through Facebook-based Bible ministries.
