Arphaxad is one of the sons of Shem and grandson of Noah (Genesis 10:22 KJV). He was born when Shem was a hundred years old or two years after the flood (Genesis 11:10 KJV). Given this case, we can assume that Shem was born 2 years after Noah reached five hundred years old which was 2446 BC. Provided this information, Arphaxad’s birth on the Biblical Timeline is 2346 BC.
