The Watchtower perpetually holds to 607 BCE as the date of the Babylonian destruction of Jerusalem, and the ending of the line of succession of the Daviadic throne. However, in this article we are going to look at an objective overview of the facts in history, archaeology, and common sense, in order to gain a broader view of what exactly is going on here. To begin with, the Watchtower has not always held that 607 was the year of the fall of Jerusalem to Babylon. In fact it wasn't until the 1940's that they unceremoniously slipped in the 607 BCE date, in replacing a 606 date simply because they recognized there was no zero year. Is this form of historical precedence tenable? It should be quite interesting for all truth seekers to be made aware that we do in fact have hard evidence to the matter of when exactly Jerusalem fell to Babylon, so let's look at that. What we have below is Babylonian tablet VAT 4956, an astronomical diary that records 13 lunar observations, and 15 planetary. It details the position of the moon and the planets in regard of certain stars and constellations, indicating the days and the months throughout the year 37 of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon; and the astronomical observations recorded in this tablet, can only correspond to the year 567 BC. So we have direct physical eye witness evidence of the exact location of all known heavenly bodies at an exact point in Nebuchadnezzars 37th year reign. It should be noted that the alignment of these astronomical bodies only line up in any given position once every 40,000 years. Also included on the tablet are observations of lunar eclipses that we know now that occurred on the exact day and time noted on the tablet. This tablet definitively confirms that the year 37 of Nebuchadnezzar’s reign corresponds to 567 BC in our calendar, and since the destruction of Jerusalem took place in the 19th year of his reign, that is, 17 years before 567 BC, Jerusalem was undoubtedly destroyed in 586 BCE. Regardless of the holdouts who try to shoehorn these tablets into a 607 BCE date of the fall of Jerusalem, there is no evidence in the fourth chapter of Daniel that the heaven high tree was representative of the Davadic throne. There is no Scriptural evidence that any part of the vision in that chapter was to denote an ending of rulership of a physical or spiritual Jerusalem. 1914 is an error, an artfully contrived personal interpretation without any foundation once an objective overview is applied without the iron fisted grasp of the Governing Body baring down on an objective observer.
