Two date range options for Noah’s Flood

In Journal of Creation 31 (1): 120-127

Conservative authors have long argued that Genesis chapters 5 and 11 chronogenealogies contain gaps, and that these and other unanswered chronology questions require ages that conflict with at least some of the Bible’s stated figures. This inadvertently diminishes confidence in Scripture’s veracity. Hebrew scholars have recently resolved longstanding biblical chronology issues like the question of Genesis genealogy gaps and confusing data in 1 and 2 Kings. They can now include every time-related Bible verse into a complete and error-free chronology from Abraham to Paul. This paper merges these chronologists’ results with the Masoretic text of early Genesis to confirm earlier calculations for the Flood at c. 2518 bc, and with the Septuagint text of early Genesis to offer an alternative, earlier estimate of c. 3168 bc.
