Notes and Comments

1.The Chronology of Redemption records 10 Jubilee Cycles from the birth of Abram to the day of the Exodus. It ignores the 15 x 354 days between the Marriage of Abram with Hagar and the birth of Isaac. The seed through whom the Redeemer was to come could not be Ishmael, and Redemption Time was therefore suspended until Isaac was born, because Abram's marriage with Hagar was an expedient contrary to the purpose of God, and a departure from the path of faith and obedience (see Chart 2.)

2.To establish the chronology to the Exodus it is necessary to use the 430 years of Exodus 12: 40-41. These 430 x 354 days commenced 4 days after Abram was 75 years old (August 6th, 2056 BC) and ended on the day of the Passover which was May 11th, 1639 BC. During research in this period, it was revealed that the four days between the 10th and 14th of the first month at the Exodus (while the lambs were shut up awaiting sacrifice at the Passover) were unreckoned by God because they were typical of the four thousand years "'the Lamb of God'u" would await death - from the Fall of Adam to the Great Passover in AD33.
