Abram Leaves Home

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.

Event, Years AAC, Formula and References
Abram Born 2,009 2084-75 Gen 12:1-4

We continue with Abram's birth.

Event, Years AAC, Formula and References
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.
