How long were the Israelites in Egypt?

Sep 21, 2021 | Genetic History, Theology

There are many question that revolve around the Israelites time in Egypt. One of these deals with how long they were there. The Bible gives conflicting numbers and people argue over a “430-year Long Sojourn” and a “215-year Short Sojourn”. In this episode, Dr Carter attempts to add to the discussion by introducing the genealogical data given to us in the Bible. The data beautifully and easily span a 215-year window, but cannot span a 430-year.
