After solving the logic puzzle of the birth order of Yaøáqöv’s sons, I could now plug Lëwî’s death into the ICB chart, which took the chart to the 307th year since @Avrähäm entered Kenaøan. Unfortunately, Scripture did not record when Lëwî’s son Qehäth was born in relation to Lëwî’s age or anything else. So, I really couldn’t take this any further forward using life years.
Was there something that would take me further?
Well, knowing how many years passed between @Avrähäm entering Kenaøan and the next big event, the Exodus, would be helpful. I could then use Möshëh’s age at the Exodus recorded in Scripture to count backwards and see where that put the Chronology.
Exodus 12.40-41 gives a summary count of years.
And the time of the dwelling of the sons of Israel, which they dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. And it happened, from the end of four hundred and thirty years, it happened on this day, all the armies of Jehovah went out from the land of Egypt. (Green)
Well, that seems pretty straightforward. The benê-Yisrä@ël spent 430 years in Mitsräyim. But then, Rûãch @Élöhîm nudged me to look a little deeper.
At this point, Rûãch @Élöhîm led me to watch a documentary on Dr. David Rohl’s research into locating Biblical events and people in time, Pharaohs and Kings: A Biblical Quest. Similar to Heinrich Schliemann who believed the Troy of Homer’s Iliad had actually existed, Dr. Rohl took the Biblical account at face value. While his findings are still not accepted by mainstream Egyptologists or Biblical scholars, I found what he had to say about Exodus 12.40 very informative.
