slaves2The Israelites were enslaved in Egypt for 430 years. There is nothing in the chronologies that indicates anything different.

Here’s the chronology as provided in the Hebrew Scriptures:

  • When Abe was 100 he had Isaac
  • When Isaac was 60 he had Jacob
  • When Jacob (Israel) was 130 he and his sons went to Egypt
    • NOTE: Jacob was not enslaved in Egypt! He enjoyed favor all the days of his life in Egypt.
  • After some time the Egyptians became jealous and fearful and enslaved the Israelites as prophesied
  • The Israelites were enslaved in Egypt for 430 years
