2010 December 26
This bar chart shows details in the life of Jacob, also called Israel, and his eleventh son Joseph. Read more:

Jacob was the first Jew, or the first Israelite. His father Isaac had two sons, Esau and Jacob, and Esau’s descendants are listed in Genesis 36; they were no Jews, and that is why also his father Isaac was no Jew and also his father, Abraham, was no Jew. Abraham was the father of many nations, and the Jews were one of them.

In this bar chart only one son of Jacob is listed, Joseph, his eleventh son, as no details are available of his other sons like year of birth or age or year of death, which would allow an entry into a time line. We only know that they were born in the 7 years before Joseph’s birth.

In this time also a daughter of Jacob was born, Dinah; it is not known whether she was the only daughter of Jacob.

Jacob’s twelfth son, Benjamin, was not born in Haran, but later; he had the same mother as Joseph, Rachel, and Rachel died at the birth of Benjamin. In Genesis 35:20 we read, “And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel’s grave unto this day,” and this monument one can still see today near Bethlehem.

We know the time when the first eleven sons of Jacob were born; Benjamin’s time of birth is not known, but he seems to have been considerably younger than Joseph.

Bible references to Jacob are Ge 25:26 and 31:38+41 and 47:9 and 47:28, and to Israel’s stay in Egypt Ge 15:13 and Ex 12:40 and to Joseph Ge 41:46, 45:11 and 50:22. More details can also be found in my entry of 14th December 2010, Bar chart of the lives of Israel’s patriarchs.

That year which allows integrating this time line into our calendar is the second year of famine, the year when Israel, or Jacob, arrives in Egypt. Israel then remains 430 years in Egypt, until the exodus, and 480 years after the exodus Solomon starts to build the temple; and that was 966 before Christ or 3208 years after Adam’s creation.

So now follows the bar chart:
