Below: Chinese Oracle Bones c. 1600 BC -1046 BC Yinxu, China (modern-day Anyang, Henan Province) Oracle Bone Script (Archaic Chinese)

The Oracle Bones from China contain ancient inscriptions that date to around the late 2nd millennium BCE. The writing on the bones is called Oracle Bone Script and is the oldest known form of writing from China. Most of the Oracle Bones that have been uncovered so far were found in Yinxu (modern-day Anyang), one of the most important capitals of Ancient China.

As the name suggests, the Oracle Bones were used for divination during the Shang Dynasty (c. 1600-1046 BC). The bones used came from animals, including ox shoulder blades and the flat under-part of a turtle’s shell. The Oracle Bones are the most important primary source of information about Bronze Age China.

The succession to his throne was contested by Ish-bosheth, Saul’s only surviving son. But David had been anointed to be the king by the prophet Samuel following Saul. David reigned in Hebron over Judah. Ish-bosheth reigned over Israel. David reunited the kingdom after assassins killed Ish-bosheth.

Science News: Earliest Known Hebrew Text In Proto-Canaanite Script Discovered In Area Where ‘David Slew Goliath’. Nov. 3, 2008 — The earliest known Hebrew text written in a Proto-Canaanite script has been discovered by Hebrew University archaeologists in an ancient city in the area where David slew Goliath – the earliest Judean city found to date. The 3,000 year old finding is thought to be the most significant archaeological discovery in Israel since the Dead Sea Scrolls – predating them by 1,000 years. The biblical narrative located the battle between David and Goliath between Socho and Azeka where David selected five stones from the nearby Elah Creek with which to slay Goliath. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/11/081103091035.htm




King Saul’s reign Year 20

1030 BC: The Philistines were ravaged and struck by God with tumors. They couldn’t get the Ark of God away from Ashdod fast enough. They sent it by cart to Beth Shemesh. From Beth Shemesh it went to Kirjath Jarim, where it stayed in the house of Abinadab for 20 years. Samuel defeated the Philistines and ended their 40 year oppression of Israel.

Eli the High Priest and Judge is 98 yrs old. Eli the High Priest and Judge is 98 yrs old when he dies. His 40th year as Judge.

1030 BC: Eli the priest died. When Israel went out to battle the Philistines, the Ark of God was captured and taken to Ashdod and into the temple of Dagon the fish god. When Eli the priest, age 98, heard about the Ark he fell, broke his neck and died. He had judged Israel for 40 years. The Ark was in Ashdod for 7 months [1 Sam 4:15-18; 5:1; 6:1] Eli was a descendant of Ithamar, the fourth and youngest son of Aaron the High Priest. Eli was also the only one in those early days in the history of our people who wore two crowns, for he was both Judge (Shofet) and High Priest.

His daughter-in-law, the wife of Phinehas (Eli’s son), was pregnant and near the time of delivery. When she heard the news that the Ark of God has been captured and that both her father-in-law and her husband were dead, she went into labor and gave birth, but was overcome by labor pains. As she lay dying, the women attending her said, Don’t despair; you have given birth to a son. But she did not respond or pay any attention. She names the boy Ichabod, saying The Glory has departed from Israel– because of the capture of the Ark of God and the deaths of her father-in-law and her husband.[8]

Saul becomes King
So the Lord had Samuel anoint Saul as king of Israel. [Jud 16:31; 1 Sam 10:1]

◄The people wanted a king to rule over them. God responds: Warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do…(I Sam 8) He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive grooves and give them to his attendants. He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. Your menservants and maidservants and the best of your cattle and donkeys he will take for his own use. He will take a tenth of your flocks and you yourselves will become his slaves.” I Sam 8

1050 BC: The children of Israel wanted a king over them like the other nations. God said to Samuel “It is not you they have rejected but they have rejected me as their king…” The transition from Judges to Kings.

Samson judged for 20 years. Year 20

◄1050 BC: Samson died,▼ he judged Israel for 20 years. The children of Israel wanted a king over them like the other nations. So the Lord had Samuel anoint Saul as king of Israel. [Jud 16:31; 1 Sam 10:1] “Then Samson prayed to God, “remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes” (Judges 16:28)”. “Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!” (Judges 16:30) He pulled the two pillars together, and down came the temple on the rulers and all the people in it. Thus he killed many more as he died than while he lived.” (Judges 16:30).

Aug. 13, 2012 — Tel Aviv University researchers recently uncovered a seal, measuring 15 millimetres (about a half-inch) in diameter, which depicts a human figure next to a lion at the archaeological site of Beth Shemesh, located between the Biblical cities of Zorah and Eshtaol, where Samson was born, flourished, and finally buried, according to the book of Judges. The scene engraved on the seal, the time period, and the location of the discovery all point to a probable reference to the story of Samson, the legendary heroic figure whose adventures famously included a victory in hand-to-paw combat with a lion.
