peace and hotep,
"And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years"
" *** Once again the article is in eror. That had nothing to do with their "choseness". Their struggle in Egypt was told to Abraham by Jah that his people will serve in a foriegn land for 400 years. This was LONG before Moses was even on the scene. Their being in Egypt had nothing to do with prompting Jah. Jah is the one who put them there."
ini asks when did "Jah put them there" :
since the Hyksos occupation of Kemit consisted of the 200 years between 1700 BC - 1500 BC,
when was Moses on the 'scene'?
when could a 400 year enslavement of Hebrews occur?
21oo BC - 17oo BC?
15oo BC - 11oo BC?
