NOTE:
If you closely examine the periods given in each of the above scriptures you will see that they donΥt line up with the same periods shown in the list of Israel's kings.
So it is clear that the years of the reigns are averaged in both instances and canΥt be calculated into final dates.
Therefore, rather than trying to reach firm dates based on guesses, we have deferred to the Prophecy found at Ezekiel 4:5 that sets the period of the kings of Judah from the end of the reign of Solomon to JeruSalemΥs destruction by NebuChadNezzar at 390 years, which we firmly believe to be accurate, because we trust that God got it right.

ALSO, you can see that the suggested dates shown in parenthesis above are about thirty years earlier than secular estimates for the destruction of JeruSalem and even nine or ten years earlier than the hotly debated popular Biblical date of 607-BCE.
