 History of Israel
A history whose epistemic standing should no longer be regarded as part of science, but as a part of culture.
Even the use of the term 'Israel' as a political term has its problems, and to write a 'history of Israel' as the history of an ethnic entity is simply too question-begging, as Keith Whitelam has demonstrated in his The Invention of Ancient Israel: The Silencing of Palestinian History.
Since most of the influential recent ‘Histories of Israel’ are in substance a rationalistic paraphrase of the biblical texts, scholars like Robert Carroll seems to reject any history as 'bogus history', whereas others like Niehr, Becking and Grabbe would argue that the biblical text must be used very carefully and critically.

 Amazon.ca: Ancient Israel's Faith And History : An Introduction To The Bible In Context: Books: George E. Mendenhall   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The notable exception was, not surprisingly, ancient Israel whose history, mythology, and culture are still known to most of us through the mechanism of the written work popularly known as The Old Testament.
In Mendenhall's view, it is in Israel's origins that we find the essential clues to the interpretation of all subsequent Israelite history-including the appearance of Jesus of Nazareth and the early Christian Church some 1200 years after the time of Moses.
Mendenhall passes through the history of ancient Israel from before the Exodus to the time of Jesus, and describes his view of that history as it relates to the religions and histories of the surrounding nations, and to the covenant with YHWH.

 Internet Ancient History Sourcebook: Main Page
The Ancient and Modern Sourcebooks have a different role: since there are already ample online repositories of texts for these periods, the goal here is to provide and organize texts for use in classroom situations.
Unlike the Medieval and Modern History Sourcebooks, this section of the project did not involve much scanning of new material to begin with.
The Ancient History Sourcebook also includes links to visual and aural material, since art and archeology are far more important for the periods in question than for later history.

It's true that the OT is often the only source for the early history of Israel and Judah, but Miller and Hayes tactfully duck the question of the historicity of the many legendary early events, and begin where they can start to tie the OT account to external and archaeological sources.

In general, Jewish history was inflated by approximately eight percent (8%), using a very simple technique based upon the belief that the solar year was comprised of 364 days.
History's (supposed) 364 day solar years were multiplied by the number of years of that history, then artificially divided into periods of seven (7) day weeks, four (4) week months, and twelve (12) month years.
