Mmmmm, maybe.

Yup, I've seen the lists, the graphics, online, at Wikipedia and elsewhere. They don't align with the figures given in 1&2 Kings, 2 Chronicles. I suspect that's mostly because of co-regencies and partly because of the way the years may have been reckoned.

What I'm interested in is how to align the numbers in the biblical books on the kings' reigns with what you see online, perhaps--more specifically, with what's presented in the magazine Biblical Archaeological Review, where the figures are similar, probably, with what's online.
