ISRAEL AND THE HOLY LAND

Jewish: The founder of the House of David was David son of Jesse, acceded as Lord-Messiah, King of the Jews and of Judah, Guardian of the Covenants of God c.1010 BC, acquired the remainder of Israel including the City of Jerusalem c.1004 BC; during his reign the Throne acquired a foundation of divine right; renounced the Throne by abdication in favour of his fourth son Solomon c.970 BC. Most of the tribes of Israel seceded c.930 BC and the House of David remained in possession of only Judah. This Kingdom ceased to exist politically c.587 BC, though the Throne continued to exist and to enjoy sovereign status de jure divino. As such the Throne acquired the dignity of Sovereign in the Holy Land of the Kings of Babylon c.586 BC; of Persia (c.538 BC); of Macedon (c.332 BC); of Egypt (c.323 BC) and of Syria (c.200 BC), of the Hasmonean Kings and Ethnarchs (c.134 BC), of the Caesars and Emperors of Rome (c.63 BC) and of Byzantium (AD 324), of the Nabatean Kings, of the Tetrarchs of Galilee and Perea, and of the Ethnarchs of Judaea, Samaria, and Idumea (37 BC), Lord Protector of the Cities of Scythopolis, Ascalon and Raphia, Sovereign of the Christian Kings of Jerusalem (1099), Supreme Custodian of the Waqf of Palestine and Sovereign therein of all Moslem Caliphs, Sultans and Kings (638). The Throne of David, together with all its acquired dignities, was vested from birth in Jesus (Yeshua) by virtue of His status as the legitimate Heir of David. He is King de jure and (by virtue of His Divinity) de facto in perpetuity with the following additional dignities: assumed the title of Great High Priest of the Universal Church at Passover, and King of Kings and Lord of Lords conferred on Him as Man on the occasion of His Resurrection (both c.33).

For most of the history of the Monarchy the period between the King's Accession and the next New Year was counted as the first year of his reign. The reigns of at least the later Kings of Judah were reckoned to begin on the first New Year's Day (1 Nisan) on the Hebrew Calendar following the actual Accession.
Astronomers Liviu Mircea and Tiberiu Oproiu of the Astronomical Observatory Institute, Cluj, Romania claimed in 2003 that the date of the Crucifixion was 3 April AD30. Their findings were based on cross-references of historical astronomical data with the biblical record of a solar eclipse reported at Jerusalem at the time of the death of Christ.
Christ rose from the dead on the third day (two calendar days) after His death, and ascended to heaven forty days after His Resurrection.
The date of the Ascension and public Enthronement of His Majesty was therefore 14 May, of which the date of the Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel, 14 May 1948, is the 1915th Anniversary by the Gregorian Calendar, but not by the Hebrew.
