# 07567 :  ISRAELITES Bondage 400 or 430

ISRAELITES Bondage 400 or 430 years?

Act 7:6  But God spoke in this way: that his descendants would dwell in a foreign land, and that they would bring them into bondage and oppress them four hundred years.

Gen 15:13  Then He said to Abram: "Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years.

Gal 3:17  And this I say, that the law, which was four hundred and thirty years later, cannot annul the covenant that was confirmed before by God in Christ, that it should make the promise of no effect.

Exo 12:40  Now the sojourn of the children of Israel who lived in Egypt was four hundred and thirty years.

Exo 12:41  And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years-on that very same day-it came to pass that all the armies of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.

Dear Sam,

1. The number of years of "bondage/oppression/affliction" was 400 years (Gen.15:13, Acts 7:6) This began number of years after the death of Joseph [Ex 1:8]..

2. The number of years of "the sojourn of the children of Israel" may be counted after the death of Jacob or Joseph, This period of sojourn of THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL is 430 years. (Ex.12:40,41)

Dear Guide

That may be the answer, Jacob and family totally in Egypt was 430 years at the time of Joseph they were treated very well that may be 30 years. After that the bondage started that time may be counted as 400 years.

Acts 7:6 says “oppress them four hundred years.

Gen: 15:13 saysafflict them four hundred years.

Dear Sam,

During the time of Joseph all Israel may not be even in their "sojourn" because they were part of the "ruling family".

When it is mentioned "the children of Israel" I prefer to count the period after the death of Jacob.

Do we still have difficulty in reconcilting the numbers?
