Bible Timeline 1996 BC Birth of Abraham

Recently M. Anderson wrote to tell us we had a mistake on the Amazing Bible World History Timeline. Genesis 11: 26 tells us “And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran.”

The Amazing Bible Timeline shows Terah as 130 years when Abraham is born. We use Bishop Ussher’s dates as the basis for the Timeline. His are the dates found in the Authorized King James Bible. When calculating the ages of each person Bishop James Ussher took into account all the scriptures regarding that person. Using additional scripture verses we have to conclude that Terah was at least 130 when Abram (Abraham) was born.

Abraham and the Angels

Consider that Terah died at age 205 (Genesis 11:32), that Abraham moved to the land of Palestine after Terah’s death (Acts 7:4), and that Abraham was 75 when he departed Haran and moved to the land of Palestine (Genesis 12:4). Then that means Terah was at least 130 at Abraham’s birth (205 – 75 = 130). But what about the scripture you quote? We can only assume this means at least one of the sons was born when Terah was 70 and the rest after that date since there are other scriptures that suggest these sons were not triplets. Why is Abram (Abraham) listed first if he was not the eldest? Most likely because he is the most important in the genealogy of the chosen people leading up to Christ.
