Proponents of this hypothesis note similarities between the traditions outlined in the Community Rule—a scroll detailing the laws of an unnamed Jewish sect—and the Roman historian Flavius Josephus’ description of Essene rituals.Archaeological evidence from Qumran, including the ruins of Jewish ritual baths, also suggests the site was once home to observant Jews.He made peace with the men of Beth-Zur, and they evacuated the city, because they had no provisions there to withstand a siege If we plot these pairs of dates (701, 702 B. See the dates associated with the large circled "1" and "2" on the chart following. Additionally, the precision with which other significant prophetic dates fall on Sabbatical Years/Jubilee Years in the calendar confirms our find of the 49th and 50th years and thus the placement of the other Sabbatical Years. There was order and precision beyond coincidence, evidence for a master plan. The manna stopped the day after they ate this food from the land; there was no longer any manna for the Israelites, but Since the Israelites spent around 40 years wandering in the wilderness, going back 40 years places the date of the Exodus around 1427 B. Are the ages given in Scripture given using 1) inclusive reckoning, or 2) the more standard form as we use now?Since the points fortunately line up, it provides strong evidence that we have found back-to-back Sabbatical Years indicating the 49th and 50th years of the 49 year Jubilee cycle. No other orientation or matching up would result in as many dates falling on Sabbatical/Jubilee Years.

(The Interlinear Bible, Hebrew-Greek-English, with literal English translation)Given this then, we must take into consideration another factor that other calculations of the date of Creation have not taken into consideration.
However, any proposed date for the Exodus must be coordinated with the start of the Jubilee and Sabbatical Years calendar, a time keeping system instituted by God (see Exod. God also instituted a Jubilee cycle, a cycle of seven Sabbatical cycles for a total of 49 years. C.) This correctly falls during the aforementioned reign of Amenophis II and in fact, it is possible that Amenophis II drowned along with many of his soldiers as he attempted to recapture the children of Israel as they passed through the Red Sea.
The Dead Sea Scrolls have been called the greatest archaeological find of the 20th century.
First discovered outside Jerusalem in the late 1940s, this ancient collection of texts includes the oldest known biblical manuscripts, dating back some 2,000 years.
As more ancient artifacts and manuscripts are rediscovered, dates of important events have been modified and their accuracy improved.
Most archaeologists now place the date of the Exodus around 1446 B.
