Thoughts Regarding The Population Growth of the Israelites Of The Exodus of 1551 B.C. In Its 215 Year Residency In Egypt From 1766 to 1551 B.C.

On September 14, 2009, at this blog, I posted the ff. fuchsia colored text  material.  I will repost my work product and add the title post new material to that below it. 

In the New Testament, there has been a complaint raised about Jacob coming to Egypt with 75 people, while in the Hebrew Torah, the number listed is 70.

In the New Testament, Acts 7:14 states 75. The LXX states 75 in Exodus 1:5 and previously in Genesis 46:27.

Genesis 46:26 states the number at 66 in the Masoretic text. In verse 27, the number of those coming into Egypt were 70. In Exodus 1:5 of the Masoretic the number is 70. See also Deuteronomy 10:22 in the Hebrew.

That is a jump of 4 in the Hebrew or O (zero) in the Greek. What might be missed is a doubling of the two souls of the sons of Joseph from Genesis 46:26-27, plus their prior count in Genesis 46:20. Were Manassah and Ephraim now counted thrice (3 times)?

The discrepancy between the LXX and the Masoretic, and the Masoretic from itself appears to be a a matter of reckoning. It may be that in the third century BC, and certainly before Herod I came to power when all the LXX was finalized by, the scribes may or may not have altered this number after other information, such as counting children over age two, instead of just those over age three, for example. That LXX information of 75 was entered and finalized well prior to Hillel restoring the lost Hebraic Torah to Israel some 30 years after Herod I came to power. Because the anti-Christian Sanhedrin of Jerusalem sought to catch Christians in every word, it is very unlikely that Stephen, attempting to convince a Sanhedrin Katan wishing to destroy him, would have made the number 75 up. That mistake would have been pounded against Christianity to successfully disperse it if it were so. Hence, we ned to look further, and elsewhere.

When the Hillel Torah was translated in the then modern Hebrew script, it likely did so first using vastly differing letter forms just 400-500 years earlier (several letters even trading with one another), so that number was also entered in the Hebraic Script; but , we just don’t "absolutely" know. But it is possible that the Hillel Copy had 70, because Josephus (who took his reckoning in Antiquities 2.7.4,) reckoned 70 without Jacob, and 71 with him. This disagrees then with the Massorete Exodus 1:5 and Deuteronmy 10:22. What happened?

There is some unaccountability in Torah manuscript transmission. That lacking finds litle solace in being dependant on sparse Mishna to Talmudic quotations, compared to the NT manuscript fragments dating well back to within a couple generations of the disciples themselves, and having a completeness by the age of Jerome, some 50 years prior to the Leningrad Codex.

We do know that in the Second Century, about 250 years before Jerome, a war of words went up when Jewish zealots redacted out this or that word or phrase in order to deny Yeshua, and the Christians chewed them up for it. Perhaps this happened also with the text, using a new counting of souls after thus an age rather than the prior thus an age. If the family of Hebraic manuscripts became small, it made small changes more possible.

Jerome in ca. 392 A.D. probably held copies of the New Testament that were almost exclusively from the first century A.D. sources as well, being only 350 or less years removed from the 47 -57 A.D. compositions of those works (an NT author dating I can reasonably prove).

It is known (Jerome, Against Rufinius, 2.34) that where the Apostolic texts differ from the much later Masoretes in quoting the Hebraic Old Testament texts, the Apostles appear to have followed a manuscript tree that was more closer to Aramaic (if we follow the second century quotations in translation to Latin and Greek by Irenaeus) and first sources, such as the Ezra era translation of Hebrew Scriptures scribed by Hillel -- if I understand correctly -- that was brought to Rome, and cited by Josephus.

Those same copies of that master copy of the Temple, which would have included the Psalms and the prophets like Isaiah and Jeremiah (etc.), made available to all Israel by 6 A.D. to 66/67 A.D. in copy form from that master copy.

Jerome, himself, handled some of these same pre-LXX manuscripts, pre-dating the LXX's completion prior to the ascension of Herod the Great.

By his own testimony, Jerome says that his Hebrew copies that he was handling, were those that pre-dated even our extant Dead Sea Isaiah Scroll now on display in Israel, dating to at least 150 B.C. and possibly as old as 250 B.C.

For him to say this there would have been a clear distinction in the difference of the Hebrew epigraphy. For which aid, he sought out the best Hebrew expert of his day to learn more than just an expanded version of what he would have called "modern Hebrew" in the 4th century A.D....but an "ancient Hebrew" of the 4th to 5th century B.C. as well. The only Ante-Nicene (pre-Nicene) mention of the relevant texts I have found is from about 190-200 A.D., in which Clement repeats the number of 75, citing Genesis 46:27 (Clement of Alexandria, Stromata 1.21) and comparing Euphorus and the 75 nations he mentions (having 72 languages and 3 dialects blending two or three of the 72 together).

So we arrive back at the Massoretes, and find that 134 texts have been tampered with by the Massoretes, who changed the name YHVH into ADNY…4 letters for 4 letters. Therefore, I presume, based on the preponderance of my research that the redaction of the original 75 to 70 was made sometime in the Second Century and retained that way in the Hebrew, and based most likely on whether or not to reckon newborns or one year or two year or three years olds...something along those lines.

I have found no Dead Sea Scroll Texts or anything of an antiquity prior to the ascension of Judah ha-nasi (ca. 190 A.D.) to demonstrate otherwise.

  Thoughts Regarding The Population Growth of the Israelites Of The Exodus of 1551 B.C. In Its 215 Year Residency In Egypt From 1766 to 1551 B.C.

The Exodus of the Hebrews from what we call ancient Egypt is an historic fact in the annals of Time that no denial can ever wipe clean from the annals of human history.  It is an event of great salvation and great faith which is meant to serve as a learning aid to future generations who in our current day have long since forgotten how to read or understand its message. Unlike others who date by hearsay speculation as to the latest fad, I have checked and rechecked the literary accounts and found the actual chronology to be OLDER than what most are told to blindly believe, and often in conflict from the crank or the quack who cannot reasonably argue the point with veracity over and over as I most certainly can, using not only the Bible, but extra-biblical verification left by early Christian writers regarding the Greeks and even Flavius Josephus himself, because when his calendar of reckoning changes to the years of reckoning, I use the same calendar length reckoning he was utilizing by the formulations he left us, which is unlocked by the Bible itself.  

In 1551 B.C., there was an EXODUS of over 2,000,000 men, women, and children (all direct descendants from the sons of Jacob) were born in the Delta lands of Ancient Egypt at a time that they were mostly swamp lands 9which they cultivated, filled in, rimmed with pointed sticks & had gates in and out of to guard against Nile Crocodiles & the like, 
bottoms that sometimes flooded or kept Goshen isolated by watery surroundings more than 6 months of the year, 
these 2,000,000 of the Exodus (not counting the strangers who joined themselves to them) were born to roughly 56 Hebrew male individuals who had children exclusively in ancient Egypt beginning from their entry into the land in 1766B.C., exactly 215 years previously.

From 1766 B.C. to 1551 B.C., the Marriageable ages began as early as 13 for boys and 12 for girls, and this very tradition is preserved down to this day by the Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah ceremonies. 

 At the time, Joseph their kinsman was vice-ruler of all northern Egypt, which was at this time ruled by the Assyrian ethnicity known as the Hyksos, who had made conquest there for their own survival, after falling repeatedly in battle to the Hittites and essentially being run out of what is now northern Iraq and most of eastern and southern Syria.

For the first 4 generations born in ancient Egypt to the male descendants of Jacob, the average Hebrew family had by average some 4.5 sons every 30 years
so that by 1646 B.C., just 120 years after Jacob's family with 56 males fully moved to Egypt in 1766 B.C.,
there were some 22,963 Hebrew males by that 4th generation who were born in the lands of ancient Egypt proper, 
with 5,103 Hebrew males born of the prior generation before that.  

In effect, the calculation presumes 4.5 to 5.5 females on average were also born per family, so that the average Hebrew family during this period was generally 9 to 10 children, perhaps even 12 children in all on average per family was possible, should we deduct for child diseases, accidents, and the like.  
Sometimes fertility enhancements can be found in the muck (as was known in ancient Central America) and/or certain vegetation, scooped up from the river and carried by basket and dump and hoe process applied to crop lands.  Since Goshen started as swamp lands like a reed solidifying delta island still building up when Israelites were first placed there, it is now long since filled up to regular lands on the path of what would likely be now a lost Nile Delta forking on the East regions well before it made its way to the sea.  Geographically we must note that it is nearing a generation shy of just 3600 years ago to where it's original location is essentially lost to us in our day, but general indicators appear to remain somewhat.  

Some 4 years before the end of the 4th generation, in 1650 B.C., a ruler came into power that knew NOT Joseph, and suddenly new taxation with interest for foods were instilled upon the Hebrews and their large families. 

 At this point, opportunistic Hebrews entered into the concept realm of banking for the first time in their history, and Jews who ran the first financial systems would soon use the practice of charge over-bearing interests to then sell their own brethren into slavery under the Hyksos military forces as a means of enriching themselves, the Hebrews paying twice as much as any costs upon tributes to the Hyksos ruler and any that their fellow Hebrew banker princes could ever have been owed, and probably more than even this. 

 For some 19 years, until the birth of Moses in 1631 B.C., the Hebrews went to work as debt slaves, and by skill and great intelligence using wooden block and tackle and fulcrum technology engines and water saw stone cutting devices and others of all sorts, the Hebrews efficiently  built the Hyksos in Egypt great cities for their times, perhaps starting with a labor force of 5,000 plus to grow into a skilled labor force of more than 20,000 in just 19 years.  Seeing just this increase, even the Hyksos seeing the sudden rise and increase in the breeding of the population saw the Hebrew potential to surpass the less than 300,000 Hyksos in numbers with just one generation, and dwarf it and potentially run them out of ancient Egypt in less than 60 years after that if something wasn’t done to dramatically decelerate Hebrew virility.  At this point in 1631 B.C., the originally Assyrian Hyksos had been in Egypt approximately 170 to 175 years.  

In 1631 B.C., the Hebrews were already crying out for deliverance from their debt bondage quite quickly at the outset in the 1640s B.C. and then in the 1630s B.C., but then as now, bankers were and still are greedy self-justifying over-interest charging real deplorables…and for this reason, the admonition such as

Ezekiel 18:13
Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him.  

Ezekiel 22:12 In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken usury and increase, and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbours by extortion, and hast forgotten me, saith the Lord God.

finds its origin and history as first in the Exodus,

Exodus 22:25 If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee, thou shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.

Leviticus 25:36 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee.

Leviticus 25:37 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase.

Deuteronomy 23:19 Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:

Deuteronomy 23:20 Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the Lord thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

is over and over is not so much about excessive interest rates being charged as ANY INTEREST RATE BEING CHARGED.  Interest rates, from a biblical perspective, helps the lender who lends within his own people (such as Hebrews to Hebrews) break even and very little else.  Any gain must be considered as negligible if gain is made in lending to those that could afford to pay it back, 

Proverbs 28:8

He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.

and to the poor, it was to be a no interest loan.  Would that Christians who lend one to another, or banks within the United States take up that same attitude toward its own, or foreign nations do the same for their own people wheresoever they are.  

So when usury or interest rates on borrowed money is used as a means to profit by and enslave one’s own kinsmen, it is certainly one of the Biblical definitions of SIN that we are ever oppressed by and few ever spend time in Church addressing from the Bible and talking about.

The Psalms are often unlocked when seen through the eyes of those who wrote them as often being mindful and placing it in 3 parallel universe contexts: The Exodus past – the Mystery present – the Future (inclusive of the End of Days).  For example, all three of these themes run through Psalm 23, which includes the crossing into the depths of the Red Sea, the rod of Moses left hand and the staff of his right hand which pointed the way to the blast of the nostrils of GOD, whom parted the sea, as Israel by faith descended down by a slightly steep embankment (Isaiah 63:12-14)  into the valley of the shadow of death on dry land as the sea stood in heaps as though great canyon walls to either side. 

With the massacre of newly born and under age 2 Hebrew males in 1631 B.C., the Hebrew birth rate dropped to 3 males per 30 year generation on average. 

 The fifth generation achieved an approximate 68,889 Hebrew males, 

the sixth generation which ended in 1586 B.C. resulted in 206,667 more Hebrew males, 

and the seventh generation which ended in 1556 B.C. (by this reckoning), possessed some 620,001 Hebrew males in that generation. 

 Five years into the 8th generation, the Hebrew nation experienced their deliverance.  The Exodus from Egypt.  

In the actual chronology of the Bible, affirmed by the kept records of rule, of genealogy, and of extra-biblical historical verification, we come to find that the Hebrews were only in Egypt to dwell and multiply for just 215 years, arriving to dwell 215 years after the Patriarch Abram. 

 If there is any doubt, the genealogy of Moses should remove this.  Levi, the son of Jacob, came down into Egypt out of Canaan with his father Jacob and all the brethren (minus Joseph who with his wife and children already dwelt there).  In ancient Egypt, Levi had a son named Caath, who in turn had a son named Amram, who was the father of Moses.  

Questions:  The genealogy of Moses being a complete one, how old was Amram when he fathered Moses, how old was Caath when he fathered Amram, remembering that Moses was 80 years old when he left Egypt? 
Answer:   There needs only be 135 years separation from the birth of Moses and his great-grandfather Levi fathering Caath in Egypt.  The 215 year sojourn from Jacob to the Exodus of Moses is therefore not just "reasonable", but the only logical answer.  

Exodus 12:40-41
“Now the sojourning of the children of Israel,
  Who dwelt in Egypt, 430 years.
        And it came to pass at the end of 430 years,
  Even the selfsame day [Abraham first entered the land]
  It came to pass,
  That all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.”

This notation qualifier is affirmed both by the Samaritan Septuagint and by the Apostle Paul, who in Galatians 3:16-17 writes:
16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.

Clearly, the Apostle Paul dates the 430 years as between Abraham receiving a specific in person promise from GOD and the time that the Exodus occurs. 

The promise given by GOD in Genesis chapter 15 was in 1981 B.C.

-- according to actual Bible Chronology, rather than manufactured dates by anti-Bible atheistic agenda  archaeology –
that Abram first entered Egypt in Genesis chapter 12, so that the events of Genesis 12:10 to Genesis 15:18 happen within a time period of perhaps less than 6 to 8 months maximum in the year we reckon as 1981 B.C.
  It has to happen in the same year timeline according to the parameters or restrictions the Bible places upon its own historical narratives.  A Spring entry into Egypt, and perhaps by early summer the events of rescuing the ruler of Sodom and attacking already withdrawing Hittite forces to save him, and by the fall the Messianic Covenant promise from the Almighty Himself.     

Moses grew up from less than the age of 2 as one of the Hyksos, a race known as the shepherd kings.  These people on average attained heights between 6'7' to over 10' tall.  It is uncertain if those giants who settled in the Americas with their Egyptian slaves were from this period in history as well as those of the late 1200s to early 1000s B.C., but the last remnants of those giants of South and North America in very small tribal remnants were eventually killed only about or soon after the Spanish conquests into the Americas, from what I gather.  These may have been skilled in metallurgy to some degree, and their weapons and armor was far superior to those we now call Native Americans (or American Indians) who feared them.  In the Americas, the giants in North America, at least, seemed to be Caucasian and often had red hair and blue eyes in settlements they had both in the West (such as Utah) and in the regions east of the Mississippi but west of the Appalachians (reportedly such as in Tennessee and Kentucky).   

It was in or about 1603, that Moses at age 28, a giant of 8'9" himself, general of the armies of the Hyksos, defeated the armies of the Ethiopians in Memphis, Egypt, and then further south along the Nile.

One of the two most likely locations that the Hebrews crossed, is due east of Suknah Spring through the Gulf of Aqaba (technically the Red Sea), with a distance of about 21.9 miles across.  The distances and geographic terrain appear to be of enough similarity to name this as a more than just only as a possible location.

When the Hyksos king  called Jonias (by Egyptian historian Manetho more than 12 centuries later) died,  the daughter of Jonias, Thermuthis,  was not allowed to succeed him.  Assis, whom likely was the son of the Hyksos chieftain who died at Saba, (apparently having been entrusted to the scared scribes) was placed on the throne, and dwelt at Pithom / Pothim, also known as Baal-Zephon, an as yet undiscovered Hyksos city that appears to have been on the west shoreline of the Gulf of Aqaba north of a low mountain range, part of the year (probably the summer), and also part of the year was spent at Avaris, known to most later as Raamses during most of the rest of the year.  

     There is little doubt that Assis was so named as “the wicked one” by ancient Egyptians with some kind of just cause, even if only we were to view the type of transition from indentured slavery to full unmitigated slavery with no hope for freedom experienced under his reign by the Hebrews who groaned out in great emotional and mental affliction as well as from their exhausting physical labors to work off an ethnic debt that was never-endingly ensured by over-interest charging fellow Jews who profited off the suffering of their brethren, and like the Pharisees 15 centuries later, saw their gentle and rich living as a sign of their own holiness, and the suffering of others as righteous damnation of those not worthy to be princes or nasi, those who saw themselves not just as rulers, but little gods upon the earth in the midst of the human jungle.    
    On what appears to be  Rosh Hashana 1552 B.C., GOD spoke to Moses on Mount Horeb, which so far to us, is only known for certain to have been in the northwest border region of Saudi Arabia.  Days later GOD stood in the way of Moses so as to slay him, but was spared by the quick actions of his wife Zipporah who quickly circumcised his son and threw the bloody skin down on the ground and appeased GOD’s anger from slaying her husband for failing to keep the Abramic Covenant that required such circumcision as even Moses himself already had when he was just days old. 

   For whatever reason, after 40 years of not using the dialect, Moses was no longer quick and fluent in the Assyriac Language of the Hyksos, and as instructed by the Almighty, relied on his brother Aaron to be his translator between he and King Assis.  Assis received his audience, recognizing Moses, whose death sentence was only as long as Hyksos law allowed, and was no longer in force because the King who decreed it died 40 years earlier.  Had this not been so, Moses knowing the law as next in line to the throne by adoption, would never have returned to the Hyksos dominions.  And we cannot rule out the possibility that had the Hyksos been so inclined, even though a Hebrew of an entire people now under debt slavery, had the Hyksos wanted, they could have accepted the 8’9” tall Moses who stood in great stature among some (but not all) their tall ones, as one of their own. 

However, for all intentional purposes, the generational multiplication of the 56 males into a nation of over 2,000,000 with over 620,000 military age males between 20-60 is thus as stated above.  Perhaps very minor adjustments might be needed, with the word minuscule as perhaps better used:  but it is otherwise mathematically true to the historical record. 

Speculation regarding finds of Giants and Pyramid Technology in the Americas
 It was perhaps from the reign of Assis, that the first Egyptians were taken captive away under Hyksos mariners and settled Central America.  The Hyksos alone seem to contain the pre-dominant genes of giantism as a race of peoples, and it appears to me that the American natives are de jure descended from those who were original Egyptians & Egyptian captives brought over in the 18Th, 17th, & 16th centuries B.C.  And based on the information of the suppressed knowledge that the Smithsonian Museum has of over 500 Giantism skeletons uncovered in the USA in the past 250 years, more than 1/2 that number varying from 8 to 17 feet tall, and one alleged several feet higher than that in the mid 1800s -- as well as the various civilizations of South America where new diseases from the Europeans appear to have struck many perhaps dozens that remained in the 1500s and wiped them out there -- certain tribal belief systems & myths & actual Egyptian artifacts of the Grand Canyon tomb (at a time that the Grand Canyon, by hypothesis,  likely still had water & was seemingly largely & at least 1/3 of its depth or higher contained as a lake to as late as pre-1200 B.C. perhaps), only make sense when connected to this very same time period as the Hyksos ruling the Nile Delta regions of Egypt.  

The tribes of the ancient Egyptians multiplying in the ancient world still under Arctic freeze that glacier covered most of North America down to the Caribbean.  From the late 1500s B.C. to perhaps the late 900s B.C., various breakaway colonies in the Americas from what is now Mexico to the southern Andes, had Rephaim giants who led and sometimes lorded over them, and had trade with Egyptian influenced and in the know Mediterranean mariners, mostly those directly affiliated with the various Rephaim giants who still kept contacts with the Atlantis of old, the primary port and kingdom the New World Rephaim used as their port and base of operations until perhaps a volcanic and earthquake destruction of which like the island of Santorini or Krakatoa, it blew apart in violence, and in effect fell into the sea, even if based on the mainland proper along an Eastern Coastline at a yet to be determined Caribbean location.
