Timeline 1581 BC – 1700 BC Joseph in Egypt Years of the Famine

Below: Chinese Oracle Bones: c. 1600 BC – 1046 BC Yinxu, China (modern-day Anyang, Henan Province) Oracle Bone Script (Archaic Chinese)

The Oracle Bones from China contain ancient inscriptions that date to around the late 2nd millennium BC. The writing on the bones is called Oracle Bone Script and is the oldest known form of writing from China. Most of the Oracle Bones that have been uncovered so far were found in Yinxu (modern-day Anyang), one of the most important capitals of Ancient China.

As the name suggests, the Oracle Bones were used for divination during the Shang Dynasty (c. 1600 BC – 1046 BC). The bones used came from animals, including ox shoulder blades and the flat under-part of a turtle’s shell. The Oracle Bones are the most important primary source of information about Bronze Age China.

Joseph dies in Egypt
1630 BC: Joseph died in Egypt at the age of 110. He was embalmed and put in a coffin in Egypt. Joseph lived to see the 3rd generation of Ephraim’s children. The children of Machir, the son of Manasseh, were also brought up on Joseph’s knee. [Gen 50: 22, 26]
So Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he and his father’s household. And Joseph lived one hundred and ten years. Genesis 50:22 No further mention of the life spans of the sons of Jacob are given except Levi, his son Kohath, and Kohath’s son Amran.

The Minoan Eruption: A major catastrophic volcanic eruption that devastated the Aegean island of Thera. With subsequent earthquakes and tsunamis between 1642 and 1540 BC. That fiery explosion killed upwards of 40,000 people in just a few hours, produced colossal tsunamis 40 feet tall, spewed volcanic ash across Asia, and caused a drop in global temperatures and created strangely colored sunsets for three years. The blast was heard 3,000 miles away with the energy of several hundred atomic bombs in a fraction of a second.

Jacob dies in Egypt
1684 BC: Israel (Jacob) died in Egypt at the age of 147. [Gen 47:28] He was embalmed and mummified. The Egyptians allowed Joseph and his brothers to take Israel’s body to Canaan for burial, and with them went all the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his house, and all the elders of the land of Egypt. Israel was buried in Canaan in the cave of the field of Machpelah and mourned for 7 days. [Gen 49:33, 50:7-8, 13] The fact that all these people went with him to bury Israel, a Hebrew, is a good reason to believe that Joseph was vizier of Egypt. “And Jacob called (all) his sons and said, “Gather together, that I may tell you what shall befall you in the last days.” Look at the blessings to predict what will befall the tribes of Jacob “in the last days” Gen 49:1
