For those familiar with scripture and the history of the Jewish people or at least familiar with the Old Testament, here's more events. You will not have seen them in this order before, and you can note that from the list of references, as we seem to be going throughout the book of Genesis, back and forth.
|Abram Born||2,009||2084-75||Gen 12:1-4|
We continue with Abram's birth.
|Reu dies at 239||2,026||1787+239||Gen 11:18-21|
|Serug dies at 230||2,050||1820+230||Gen 11:22-23|
|Teran dies at 205||2,084||1879+205||Gen 11:32|
|Abraham leaves Haran||2,084||in sequence||Gen 12:4|
Abraham leaves Haran, gets the covenant, and enters Egypt. This is a significant year, because the Exodus dates from it, according to Galatians 3:17. The law (the 10 Commandments) was given 430 years after the promise to Abraham. Also note that Abraham entered Egypt with his 'sister' at this time, so it is not unreasonable (to me) to use this time as the start of the 430 years.
|Ishmael born, Abraham is 86||2,095||2009+86||Gen 16:16|
