    Here is Table 1, but deformatted 🙁

    Table 1 The usual calculation of the 430 years

    Abram enters Canaan at 75 (Gen. 12:4), dies at 175 (25:7), Isaac 75 (21:5)… 100 yrs

    Jacob then 15 (from 25:26), enters Egypt at 130 (47:9)… 115 yrs

    In Egypt

    Jacob dies at 147 (47:28)… 17 yrs… 17 yrs

    115-year gap to make up 430 years… 115 yrs… 115 yrs

    Aaron born 83 years before the Exodus (7:7)… 83 yrs… 83 yrs

    Totals… 430 yrs… 215 yrs
