A day is equivalent to 360 degrees. Twenty-four hour is equivalent to 1,440 minutes. From these equivalents, we will determine how true that there was really a missing day in the Universe since it was believed that it was only a fictitious story.
If the story written in the Holy Bible is not really true – why until now nobody deleted it especially those sections about Joshua and 2Kings.
If you read the Holy Bible – you might already read this section that tells “The sun stood still and the moon stayed — and hasted not to go down about a whole day”. It can be read at (Old Testament, Book of Joshua, Chapter 10, verses 12-13) and that whole day is equivalent to 350 degrees.
While in 2Kings, Hezekiah asked for a sign as proof. Isaiah said “Do you want the sun to go ahead 10 degrees?” Hezekiah said “It is nothing for the sun to go ahead 10 degrees, but let the shadow return backward 10 degrees.” Isaiah spoke to the Lord and the Lord brought the shadow ten degrees BACKWARD!
Now the conversion: At Joshua the sun hasted not to go down about a whole day which equals to 350 degrees or equivalent to 23 hours and 20 minutes. At 2Kings, the shadow of the sun returned backward 10 degrees or equivalent of 40 minutes. So if we will add – 350 degrees + 10 degrees, the sum is 360 degrees or a whole day.
Based from the given - One degree = 4 minutes. If we will multiply 360 degrees by 4 minutes, it is equals to 1,440 minutes. If we will divide the 1,440 minutes by 60 minutes, it is equals to 24 hours.
At Joshua which was 350 degrees multiplied by 4 minutes is equals to 1,400 minutes. At 2Kings which was 10 degrees multiplied by 4 minutes is equals to 40 minutes. 1,400 minutes plus 40 minutes is equals to 1,440 minutes. Are you still doubtful about the Bible records?
