    Thanks to all who contributed to this thread. It’s a very interesting and valid question to consider. I think there is another issue to consider that is antecedent to this discussion and relates directly to the consideration of what size the exodus population was. It is the question of how in 4 generations (based on the names of the given generational fathers in the line of Levi and their sons in Exodus) how the population could propagate from 70 people the 1.5 million. Is this mathematical possible? That’s an amazing amount of pregenancies and births for each mother in the 4 generations to have. Any ideas?
