The Kingdom of Heaven takes hold

Now, I would have loved to tell you in-depth about the days that come right after the priests of Amun. Apparently All historical records or books seem to suddenly agree that the bible is 100 % accurate (and NO, I am not stating it is in-correct - who am I to know such a thing?). But I can base this on the fact that most historical records I read keep referring to the Bible chapters about Solomon's time and they seem to use this as a fact-sheet of some sort. 

In the book dating from 1887 "The story of the nations - Ancient Egypt" on page 296, it states ;

(When Solomon ruled) - it is a little uncertain which Egyptian prince was now upon the throne; but Egyptologers incline to Pinetem II, the second in succession after Men-khepr-ra, and the last king but one of the dynasty. The Hebrew monarch having made overtures through his ambassador, this prince, it would seem, received them favourably; and, soon after his accession (1 Kings III. I), Solomon took to wife his daughter, an Egyptian princess, receiving with her as a dowry the city ans territory of Gezer, which Pinetem had recently taken from its independent Canaanite inhabitants (ib. ix. 16).

I should not need to 'state/quote' anymore from this book, to illustrate that it reefers to the Bible records as used as a 'fact-sheets'.  

                                      Chronicle of the Pharaohs - by Peter A. Clayton

In the book "Chronicle of the Pharaohs" - by Peter A. Clayton - ISBN 0-500-05074-0, on page 180 and 181, it states ;

'Sheshonq triumphs in Palestine'
Following the death of Solomon in 930 B.C, the kingdoms of Judah and Israel under Rehoboam (Solomon's son) and Jeroboam I, respectively, were at loggerheads and ripe for strong Egyptian military intervention. 
Sheshonq - Shishak of the bible - defeated them in 925 B.C in a highly successful campaign, the like of which had not been seen since the days of Ramesses III in the 20th Dynasty. He moved first against Judah, arriving before the walls of Jerusalem, held by Rehoboam. The city was surrounded but Seshonq was bought off from entering it by being given 'the treasures of the house of the Lord, and the treasures of the king's house; he even took away all: and he took away all the shields of gold which Solomon had made' (1 Kings 14: 26).

So again there is a reference to the Bible records as a source 
(which I must add is fine with me, because I do see it as a valuable book for us humans alike).

The only 'proper' thing one can conclude is that; suddenly people (especially entangled into one faith/belief - about their own goodness vs. others Evilness - which is and will always be ludicrous. We all possess both sides, only in the choice that a given person chooses, will their 'true' nature be revealed - will he choose for his I (Latin: Ego) or will he see the overall situation as is. - much philosophy belongs to such a discussion). 
Back from around 900 BC up until around 1000 AD (and even then there was war in smaller areas, and much knowledge were lost among those days).
