Exodus To Saul

The sequence continues, with some major events listed in this section. Notice that for the dating of the Exodus I have chosen to take the sequence from Paul's information in Galatians.

Exodus 12:41

Abram left Canaan in 2024, and received the Covenant. It was re-confirmed at later dates with him. Moses received the Law on the mountain shortly after passing through the Red Sea. These two events are 430 years apart. (Galatians 3:17)

We know that Samson dies and his judgeship of 20 years ends at this time. But, to find when Eli takes over, we do the math differently. Acts 13:19-20 tells us that from the time the land is divided until the Samuel takes over is 450 years. We also know that Eli judged for 40 years, ending when Samuel took over. Notice that this math leaves about 20 years from the end of Samson's judgeship for the events of Judges 17 and later.

Also note that this conflicts with First Kings 6:1 which states that from the Exodus to the temple is 480 years. That leaves 30 years total for the Exodus itself, and the time of Samuel, Saul and David, which also is not correct. Again, if you have ideas, comments, inspirations or revelations please .

Above we have much room for controversy, but it is still pretty simple, and some would say a little dry.
