## Differences between ancient Genesis sources

Usher's MT-based date of 4004 BC for creation week in Genesis when compared to the LXX-derived date of 5560 BC 1 gives a difference of 1556 years. How to explain this?

There are other differences, some of which are summarized in the table below:

Adam to Flood | Flood to Abraham | Adam to Abraham | |
---|---|---|---|

MT | 1656 years | 352 years | 2008 years |

LXX | 2262 years | 1132 years | 3394 years |

Difference | 606 years | 780 years | 1386 years |

- 1This date is arrived at by adding the years from Adam to the flood, 2262, to the date of the flood, 3298 BC, giving the result of 5560 BC.
