Finding the Exodus

Exodus Triangulation findings

Identifying the Exodus date can now be found by identifying the date with the most data point intersections. These four independent requirements will reveal the biblical Exodus date by lining up the Jubilee requirement and the three Sabbaths.

Previously, in the Exodus Timeline,[1] two clusters of dates and two standalone dates were identified to contain the Exodus year. The years in question are 1564 – 1550 BC, 1524 – 1510 BC, 1280 BC, and 1446 BC.

The first triangulation point that will be deployed is the Jubilee year requirement. The only Exodus years that will work with the Jubilee year requirement are 642, 691, 740, 789, 838, 887, 936, 985, 1034, 1083, 1132, 1181, 1230, 1279, 1328, 1377, 1426, 1475, 1524, 1573, 1622, and 1671 BC.

  • 1564 – 1550 BC – this window of time has no Jubilees that line up with these Exodus dates.
  • 1446 BC – has no Jubilees around this purposed Exodus date.
  • 1280 BC – has one Exodus date of 1279 BC that lines up with a Jubilee.
  • 1524-1510 BC – has one Exodus date of 1524 BC that allows for a Jubilee date.

The only Exodus dates that pass the first triangulation data point are 1279 BC and 1524 BC.

The first possible Exodus date based on the Jubilee triangulation is 1279 BC:

  1. The first Passover in the Promised Land has the lamb sacrificed on Saturday at twilight, but this year the Passover lamb would have been sacrificed on Thursday, April 16, 1279 BC.
  2. The first Sabbath after manna fell needs to be on 21 or 22 Ziv; however, on this year, Tuesday, 21 Ziv, and Wednesday, 22 Ziv, are neither a Sabbath Saturday.
  3. If 1279 BC were correct, then the Exodus would be on Tuesday, April 8, 1279 BC and is not a Sabbath.

Since the Jubilee triangulation point lines up, the odds of this event occurring is 1/49; this means that for every 49 years, this combination will occur once.

The second possible Exodus date based on the Jubilee triangulation is 1524 BC.

  1. Precisely 40 years after the Exodus, Israel entered the Promised Land and had their Passover. With a 1524 BC Exodus, the first Passover in the Promised Land would have occurred on Friday to Saturday, April 23, 1484 BC. This would be in keeping with a conservative read of the Mosaic Law regarding the Omer Offering on the morning after the Passover.
  2. The promise of manna would have occurred on Saturday, 15 Ziv, after sunset. The manna would have fallen on the mornings of Sunday, 15 Ziv, Monday, 16 Ziv, Tuesday, 17 Ziv, Wednesday, 18 Ziv, Thursday, 19 Ziv, and Friday, 20 Ziv, but not on Saturday, 21 Ziv. The 1524 BC template shows that the events unfolded swiftly with no delay, matching the story from Josephus. God made the promise in the evening and sent it in the morning.
  3. The evening before the Exodus from Egypt is known as the first Passover. This date was on Friday, April 16, 1524. The Exodus from Egypt would then have occurred on Saturday, April 17, 1524 BC.
  4. The Exodus date of 1524 BC would allow for the first Jubilee to occur in 1477 BC, and on the second year of King Zedekiah’s reign, the 18th Jubilee would have occurred.

The Exodus year of 1524 BC is within the most reliable window of time provided by the Bible (1524 BC to 1510 BC).

An Exodus day of Saturday, April 17, 1524 BC, allows the Jubilee and all three Sabbaths to occur on the proper days. The probability of all the triangulation datapoints lining up is 1/49×1/7×2/7×1/3, equaling 1 in 3,601. This means that one year in every 3,601 years will line up with the Exodus requirements. Considering that 1524 BC was about 3,524 years ago there would only be one year from Moses to today that would fit all the requirements.
