"At first my people went down to Egypt to live;

1260 years:

Again from this seven-year famine of Joseph, till the fall Nineveh (612 BC), capital of Assyria, there are 1260 years. (It was Assyria who had earlier destroyed Israel, but now it was Assyria’s turn to drink "the cup of wrath," Isaiah 51:17-23; cf. Isaiah 8:4.)


Table 6

Famine|________+_1260__________| Assyria falls

1878–1871 BC (7-year famine) + 1260 years = 618–611 BC

Assyria’s three capitals fell during the years 614–612 BC


1290 years (i.e., the Bible-Prophecy 3˝ years-of-years): (Also see "1290 days")

The above lunar, solar, and Bible-Prophecy 3˝ years of years––even all three––aligns exactly with all three deportations from Judah when starting from the entry into Egypt in 1876 BC. Furthermore, each of these are repeated again one year a part! This one-year-apart parallel pattern starts from the middle of the 7 years of Joseph’s famine (instead of the entry), ending at these same three exiles. But rather than getting too complex,  we will stick to the simple straightforward pattern, rather that the mid-famine position. (Or go, here, to the full complex version of this particular page.)
