The Assyrians and Babylonians maintained historical records in which astronomical events were listed. By correlating these records with astronomical calculations modern historians have been able to establish the dates for important events in the history of Assyria and Babylon. Since some of these events and characters are also mentioned in the Bible, they provide anchors to establish the chronology of Biblical events. There exists a good synchronization between the records in Kings and Chronicles, archeological and historical records from Babylon and Assyria.The Biblical chronology gives 4000 BC for the start of the human race. This conflicts with secular chronology, which is based on evolution theory and radiometric dating. However, radiometric dating is fraught with assumptions and therefore does not discredit the Biblical timeframe. Evidence for a young earth is also considered.

The kingdom of Israel witnessed a decline after the golden age of Solomon; the seeds of this decay were sown in Solomon’s wrong choices. Rehoboam’s rude response to the requests of his subjects led to the kingdom of splitting into two; all the kings of the northern kingdom of Israel were motivated by personal ambition and had no commitment to Jehovah.In particular, Ahab, spurred by his wife Jezebel, filled the land with Baal worship, and all its accompanying immorality. The lives of the kings are a negative example for us, to illustrate how not to make choices, and how we cannot avoid the consequences of our choices.
