Re: Ezra-Neh

Shishak (Sheshonk) is mentioned in Egyptian texts. It's hard to claim 
that "contemporary texts lie" when we have confirmation from 2 
independent sources.
 As for the historicity of Solomon (and David), there has been an 
ongoing discussion in the First Century Judaism group, and I refer you 
to that. I fon't think the last word has been said.
