11743Biblical evidence for Young Earth Creation - Israel going to Egypt to the Judges
- Feb 17, 2014
From the last post we have time have the time from Creation to Israel going to Egypt at 2304 years +/- 14 and 642 years +/- 9 since the Flood.
Exodus 12:40-41 (KJB)
40 Now the sojourning of the children of Israel , who dwelt
in Egypt , was four hundred and thirty years.
41 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and
thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all
the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt .
This indicates the children of Israel left Egypt exactly 430 years after arriving to the day,
Numbers 9:4-5 (KJB)
4 And Moses spake unto the children of Israel , that they
should keep the passover.
5 And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the
first month at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to
all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did the children of
This 2nd Passover was 1 years after the first.
Numbers 32:13 (KJB)
13 And the LORD'S anger was kindled against Israel , and he
made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the
generation, that had done evil in the sight of the LORD, was
Joshua 14:7 (KJB)
7 Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD
sent me from Kadeshbarnea to espy out the land; and I brought
him word again as it was in mine heart.
Joshua 24:29 (KJB)
29 And it came to pass after these things, that Joshua the son of
Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being an hundred and ten years
From this we get the Joshua lived 70 years after spying out the land the first time and 30 years after beginning the conquest of the land. So allowing for travel time and other uncertainties such as the exact dates of Joshua birth and death, get us an additional 70 years +/- 1 For a total of 500 years +/- 1 from the children of Israel arriving in Egypt .
Judges 3:9 (KJB)
9 And when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD
raised up a deliverer to the children of Israel , who delivered them,
even Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother.
Given that the fist judge was Caleb nephew it only too 1 generation for then to corrupt themselves. There is no exact time given here but 20-30 years after the death of Joshua is enough time for the elders that out lived Joshua die and for the next Generation to grow up. This results in an additional 25 years +/- 5 for a total time from Israel going to Egypt to the Judges of 525 years +/- 6.
This gives us a the time from Creation to the Judges at 2829 years +/- 20 and1167 years +/- 15 since the Flood.
