Israels 1948 Connection:
The Year 1948:
There seems to be the possibility of a very interesting connection involving the Nation of Israel and the year 1948. The traditional timeline genealogy found in the Bible seems to show that 1948 years after Adam and the creation of man, Abraham was born. That is from the Jewish calendar that uses a 360 day lunar cycle.
In our current Gregorian calendar that uses a 365 day cycle, Israel became a nation recognized by the United Nations in the year 1948. It seems that Abraham, the beginning of biblical Israel, may have been born the same year (1948) as the modern nation of Israel.
At the very least, if true, it makes for an interesting coincidence, however, it may be much more than that considering God has perfect timing.
