Today's eclipse and King Hezekiah?
BIBLE HISTORY DAILY: August 2017: An Eclipse of Biblical Proportions. Solar eclipses and Biblical events (Frederick Baltz). I don't recall seeing this explanation before for Hezekiah's reversing sun-shadow on the "dial of Ahaz" (2 Kings 20/Isaiah 38). In general I am skeptical about naturalistic explanations for biblical miracles. But I am not an astronomer. I don't have the expertise to evaluate this one. I blog, you decide.
