OLD TESTAMENT CALCULATIONS

The Old testament calculations start with the Rule of Solomon. His rule is accurately recorded in both the Bible and secular history. Virtually every scholar and Bible book accepts the same date given for Solomon's reign. It started in 971 B.C. After careful research I determined that this date is accepted widely as historical fact. This is where my Calculations began.

971 B.C. SOLOMON'S RULE BEGINS (BASE YEAR)

1. Widely accepted date with excellent reliability.

967 B.C. TEMPLE'S CONSTRUCTION BEGINS.

2. Temple started in the forth year of Solomon's reign;

stated to be 480 years after the Exodus from Egypt.

967B.C. + 480 YEARS = 1447 B.C. 1KING 6:1

And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Ziv, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of Jehovah. (ASV)

1447 B.C. EXODUS FROM EGYPT

3. Exodus occurs 430 years after Jacob enters Egypt.

1447 B.C + 430 YEARS = 1887 B.C. EXOD 12:40-41

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.

1877 B.C. JACOB ENTERS EGYPT

4. Jacob is 130 years old when he enters Egypt GEN 47:8-9

1877 B.C. + 130 YEARS = 2007 B.C. Jacob's birth

And Pharaoh said unto Jacob, How old art thou? 9 And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years:... (KJV)

1916 B.C. JOSEPH BORN

GEN 41:46 JOSEPH 30 WHEN BEFORE PHARAOH

[JACOB 91 WHEN JOSEPH BORN -1916BC]

 

2007 B.C. JACOB'S BIRTH

5. Isaac is 60 at Jacob's birth. 2007 + 60 = 2067B.C.

Gen 25:26

26 And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them. (KJV)

2067 B.C. ISAAC'S BIRTH

6. Abraham was 100 when Isaac is born.

2067 + 100 = 2167 B.C. GEN 21:5

5 And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him. (KJV)

2081 B.C. ISHMAEL'S BIRTH

2167 B.C. ABRAHAM'S BIRTH

7. Ishmael is 13 when Abraham is 99. 99-13=86

2167 - 86 = 2081B.C. GEN 17:24-26

24 And Abraham was ninety years old and nine, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. 25 And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. 26 In the selfsame day was Abraham circumcised, and Ishmael his son.
