CAN WE TRUST VAT 4956 (ARCHAELOGICAL TABLET)?

VAT

NO – Awake! 5/8/1972 p. 28 When Did Babylon Desolate Jerusalem?

YES – The Watchtower 11/1/2011 p. 27 When Was Ancient Jerusalem Destroyed?—Part Two

Clearly, much of the astronomical data in VAT 4956 fits the year 588 B.C.E. as the 37th year of Nebuchadnezzar II. This, therefore, supports the date of 607 B.C.E. for Jerusalem’s destruction—just as the Bible indicates.
