1102015169_univ_lsr_lg

4 YEARS – The Watchtower 12/15/1968 p. 748 par. 32 “Your Deliverance Is Getting Near”

Has no “great tribulation” occurred again since 70-73 C.E. that compares with the Jewish disaster of those years

4 MONTHS 25 DAYS – Insight on the Scriptures Vol. 2 p. 47 – Jerusalem

In just 4 months and 25 days, from April 3 to August 30, 70 C.E., the conquest had been effected. Thus, the tribulation, though intense, was remarkably short.

4.5 YEARS – July 15, 2013 WT.

Chart on pages 4 & 5 indicates it lasted 66 C.E – 70 C.E

CAN WE TRUST VAT 4956 (ARCHAELOGICAL TABLET)?

VAT

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

So, because of the problems inherent in Ptolemy’s Canon and “VAT 4956,” it takes more faith to accept them than it does to accept the Bible’s testimony.

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.
