All dates are best taken as ‘about BC’, as the possible variation can run to a century or more in 2000 BC, down to a decade by 1000 BC.
Although no scriptural evidence is available for the time of the beginning of the regnal year in the northern kingdom of Israel, when a Nisan-to-Nisan regnal year is used for Israel together with a Tishri-to-Tishri year for Judah, the perplexing discrepancies disappear and a harmonious chronological pattern results.
According to the nonaccession-year system, that portion of a year wihch followed a king's accession to the throne and which preceded the official New Year (whether Tishri 1 or Nisan 1) was counted as his first official year.

He was a contemporary of Jehoshaphat, king of the southern kingdom of Judah (870-848 BC), and Joram, king of the northern kingdom of Israel (852-841 BC).
At the time of the Conquest at the end of the 15th century BC, the region was occupied by the Amorites, who had earlier taken it from the Moabites (Num 21:26).
In the mid-ninth century BC, Mesha was successful in throwing off the yoke of Israel and bringing the area once again under the authority of Moab (1 Kgs 3:5; Mesha Inscription).

He married Jezebel, the daughter of king Ithobaal I of Tyre, and the alliance was doubtless the means of procuring him great riches, which brought pomp and luxury in their train.
During Ahab's reign Moab, which had been conquered by his father, remained tributary; Judah, with whose king, Jehoshaphat, he was allied by marriage, was probably his vassal; only with Damascus is he said to have had strained relations.
The one event mentioned by external sources is the Battle of Karkar (perhaps at Apamea), where Shalmaneser III of Assyria fought a great confederation of princes from Cilicia, Northern Syria, Israel, Ammon and the tribes of the Syrian desert (853 BC).

The first written attestation of the ethnonym "Arab" occurs in an Assyrian inscription of 853 BC, where Shalmaneser III lists a King Gindibu of mâtu arbâi (Arab land) as among the people he defeated at the Battle of Karkar.
Later come the inscriptions (beginning in the 1st century BC) and the many Arabic personal names attested in Nabataean inscriptions (which are, however, written in Aramaic.) From about the 2nd century BC, a few inscriptions from (near) reveal a dialect which is no longer considered "Proto-Arabic", but Pre-Classical Arabic.
By the fourth century AD, the Arab kingdoms of the Lakhmids in southern Iraq and Ghassanids in southern Syria had emerged just south of the Fertile Crescent, and, constantly at war, ended up allying respectively with the Sassanid and Byzantine Empires.

His marriage with Jezebel helped his friendship with Tyre, and his alliance with Jehoshaphat 1, king of Judah, made Ahab sure of his less powerful neighbor to the south.
Ahab's prestige is seen in Assyrian inscriptions mentioning his alliance against Shalmaneser III (see Shalmaneser I), who won an indecisive victory (c.854 BC) at Karkar on the Orontes.

Others assert that Joel is definitely post-exilic and place the date as late as the 4th century BC.
However, this sort of incoherence, at once engaging and suggestive of a deeper wisdom, cannot be supported; indeed, the dissemination of such nonsense denies the interior distinctions, the very eschatological references of the book, and demotes the prophecies of the book to historical hindsight.

The Battle of Karkar (or Qarqar) was fought in 853 BC when the army of Assyria, led by king Shalmaneser III, encountered an allied army of 12 kings at Karkar led by Hadadezer of Damascus.
This battle is notable for having a larger number of combatants than any previous battle, and for being the first instance some peoples enter recorded history (such as the Arabs).
Shalmaneser's opponents held on to their thrones after this battle: Hadadezer was king of Damascus until at least 841 BC, while Ahab was king of Israel until around 850 BC.

Taken from the Bible, these numerical patterns in and of themselves reveal the date of Solomon's temple and the exodus to indeed be 966 BC and 1446 BC respectively.
While no serious doubt exists as to the authenticity of the ‘480’ years as being the correct number, however, just sufficient doubt does exist to warrant its use in the study of the numbers, though on a secondary level.
In the "Writing on the Wall" essay, the primary date of 1446 BC is adhered to throughout for the sake of simplicity.
