Herein, I propose a timeline that is capable of supporting three main scriptural passages that surround and “contain” the time of slavery experienced by the Israelites in Egypt. I understand fully that this proposition runs afoul of accepted traditions – most of which consider only one of the passages at a time. I also understand that the two key manuscript problems have historically been resolved differently than I have attempted to resolve them. However, this timeline fits all three passages (Genesis 15, Exodus 12, and Galatians 3) simultaneously.
The specifics are provided immediately below. This is followed by a description of the analysis used, and then by a recapitulation of these specifics.
