Nebuchadnezzar's wasting of Egypt

Post by Chris Watts »

The Date? After 604 BC?

Quite surprised to find so many scholars denying the issue that Nebuchadnezzar even went to Egypt based on the usual " insufficient evidence " motif. Keeping this short I found a PDF attached below that offers evidence against the "scholarship". It is a 7 page pdf but what is interesting is on Page 4, top of the page where he begins with: "...Nevertheless, attention has recently been called to a hieroglyphic inscription in the Louvre, which brings us unimpeachable testimony, from a contemporary Egyptian source, to the fact of an actual conquest of Egypt by Nebuchadnezzar....'

If anyone is interested I would appreciate insights. (Naturally this sprang from my readings in Ezekiel 29 and 30)

Does this have anything to do with Hebrew, though?

Well Ok, so I moved it to the coffee lounge, sorry, thought archeology was the closest category. I remember going back a few years, 10 years I think roughly, when I was on the forum, how many loads of discussions there were around Biblical history. Is this now Taboo???

Does this also mean I can not attach a map of Cush to ask the forum if they agree with its approximate boundaries at a certain date in biblical history? Is this also now banned??
