Tas Walker and Myself on C14 : Glacial Maximum and End · Interim III, Flood to Abraham with Syncellus · Continuing Interim III to Joseph in Egypt

How do we do that?

Well, for one thing, we know the Joseph in Egypt episode is misdated to whenever Djoser is misdated to, since Joseph according to hunger stele was in all probability Imhotep.

Then we look for a clue when Joseph would have been there according to Syncellus.

2189 BC Birth of Abraham

2114 BC Promise to Abraham

1684 BC Exodus after promise = 1685 BC, Exodus acc to Syncellus

0215 (add back)

1899 BC Jacob to Egypt c. about time when Pharao Djoser is going to die.

Interim III ended on:

I seem to have come to an impass with the chronology, it seems Jacob dies way too early in relation to his arrival in Egypt.

PS, note very well that if this is an error in Syncellus and not in my understanding of him, there is no such paradox in St Jerome:

2015 Abraham born (acc. to Christmas chronology)

1915 Isaac born (when his father was 100)

1855 Jacob born (when his father was 60)

1725 Jacob to Egypt (at 130 years of age)

0215

1510 Exodus (acc. to Christmas chronology)

All years BC./HGL

PPS, Error fixed, simply subtraction error in year of when Jacob died./HGL
