Abraham’s seed multiplies – 75 Israelites go in but over 600,000 come out of Egypt


Genesis 17 Amplified Bible (AMP) 

Abraham’s seed multiplication 

17 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the [a]Lord appeared to him and said,

“I am [b]God Almighty;
Walk [habitually] before Me [with integrity, knowing that you are always in My presence], and be blameless and complete [in obedience to Me].

“I will establish My covenant (everlasting promise) between Me and you,
And I will multiply you exceedingly [through your descendants].

Then Abram fell on his face [in worship]

Acts 7:14 75 go into Egypt

14 Then Joseph sent word and invited Jacob his father and all his relatives to come to him, seventy-five[a]persons in all

According to , besides women and children,” plus many non-Israelites and livestock.  men aged 20 and up.

Conversations: The 6000 year question

Just old IS the Earth?

I found it very interesting that Presidential Candidate Ben Carson addressed a question and a issue which I often see discussed and debated and some length in discussions related to origins.

The question is about the age of the earth as it relates to “Creationism”. Creationism is a phrase I put in quotes because I find so much ignorance and fallacy as to what our modern secular society thinks these things mean.

At any rate I found it very interesting that Ben Carson tired to answer the question very similar to the way I usually answer it.  The topic can lead also to the Theological topic and debate on the  “Gap Theory” or in some way explaining that the Bible does not specify an age of the earth.

This thread is from conversations I’ve participated in on the topic.
