==================================================

Using bible numbers and averaging, your task is to find the average birth rate from the time they entered into Egypt until they were counted in the book of Numbers... then use that same birth rate and project the number of Israelites that would exist 400 years after they were counted in the book of Numbers.

It appears to me that according to the scriptures there would now be a couple billion descendants of the Israelites living in the middle east?
If you like logic and numbers... figure this one.

How many Israelites in the book of Numbers, check my math

Numbers in pink are estimates
================================================
GENESIS 46:26 All the souls that came with Jacob into Egypt, which came out of his loins, besides Jacob's sons' wives, all the souls were threescore and six; 66
To figure how many children, use the mother as the basis in calculations.
Here in Genesis 46:26 there were 66 people who went into Egypt ( Joseph was already there)
Jacob and his 11 sons would have been 12 of the 66
The wives of the sons were not counted, so 66 - 12 = 54 children
Let's say half of the children were girls 54/2 = 27
27 grand daughters
11 wives of the 11 princes not counted in Gen 46:26
1 wife already in Egypt (Asenath)
-----
39 Women going into Egypt, lets round it off and say 40 women.

#1 40 Women ... wives daughters of the Israelites in Egypt
================================================

#2 Exodus 12:40 The Israelites were in Egypt 430 years

================================================
NUMBERS 1:2 Take you the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, after their families, by the house of their fathers, with the number of their names, every male by their polls;
NUMBERS 1:3 From twenty years old and upward.
NUMBERS 1:46 Even all they that were numbered were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty 603550
NUMBERS 1:47 But the Levites were not numbered among them.
#3 Males 20 years and older from 11 tribes = 603,550
================================================

From 11 tribes, the total males 20 and up were 603,550
(4a) Numbered 20 years and up
(4b) Average life span 50
(4c) 4a / 4b = .4 Males under 20
(4d) 4c x 603,550 = 241,420 males under 20

#4 Males under 20 from 11 tribes = 241,420
================================================

#3 603,550 males of 11 tribes 20 and up
#4 241,420 males of 11 tribes under 20
-------------------------------------------------
#5 844970 total males from 11 tribes
================================================
Estimating the average birth to be 50% female
(6a) 2 x 844970 = 1689940
#6 1689940 total Israelites of 11 tribes

================================================
NUMBERS 3:39 All that were numbered of the Levites, which Moses and Aaron numbered at the commandment of the Lord, throughout their families, all the males from a month old and upward, were twenty and two thousand.
#7 All the male Levites = 22,000
================================================
Using the average of women being half the population.
(8a) 2 x 22,000 = 44,000
#8 Total Levites in the book of Numbers 44,000
================================================
1689949 Total Israelites from 11 tribes + 44,000 Total Levites
#9 1,733,940 Total Israelites in the book of Numbers

================================================
A reproductive generation is the time it takes a female to be born, until she produces her last child. Life span was short in ancient times and girls got married in their early teens. For this problem I will say a generation of women was 30.
#10 A generation = 25 years
================================================
#1 40 women went into Egypt
#2 After the Israelites were there 430 years
#9 Those women had produced 1,733,940 children
================================================
Question 1
In order for 40 women to have 1,733,940 living descendants in 430 years, how many children women have to average per generation.
Average age of women when they had their last child ? 25
Average number of children per woman ? 3.6194
1 72
2 131
3 237
4 429
5 776
6 1405
7 2542
8 4601
9 8327
10 15070
11 27272
12 49355
13 89319
14 161641
15 292522
16 529377
17 958014
18 1733718
Starting with 40 females, The average woman would have to produce 3.6194 in 18 generations to produce 1733718 living descendants
#11 3.6194 is the average number of children produced (which lived long enough to reproduce themselves)
================================================
The book of Numbers took place around 1440 BC
After you have found the number of children a woman would have to average per generation to produced 1,733,940 living children 430 years later..
Question 2
Use that same average number of children per mother
Starting in 1440 BC
Starting with 1,733,949 Israelites and project the number of Israelites that would exist by the birth of Christ.
Using (#11) 3.6194 as the average children that would have been necessary to produce the number of Israelites (when numbered), assuming a reproductive generation was 25 years old, how many Israelites would exist 400 years after they were counted in the book of Numbers.
-1400 BC ISRAELITES 1,733,940 Total Israelites in the book of Numbers
-1375 BC ISRAELITES 1529142.209
-1350 BC ISRAELITES 2767288.6556273
-1325 BC ISRAELITES 5007962.28008873
-1300 BC ISRAELITES 9062909.33827657
-1275 BC ISRAELITES 16401147.0294791

-1200 BC ISRAELITES 97206203.3845232
-1175 BC ISRAELITES 175914066.264972
-1150 BC ISRAELITES 318351685.719719
-1125 BC ISRAELITES 576121045.646976
-1100 BC ISRAELITES 1042606256.30733
-1075 BC ISRAELITES 1886804542.03938
-1050 BC ISRAELITES 3414550179.72867
-1025 BC ISRAELITES 6179311460.25497
-1000 BC ISRAELITES 11182699949.6234
The math is right, the logic must be flawed
================================================
Using bible numbers and averaging, your task is to find the average birth rate from the time they entered into Egypt until they were counted in the book of Numbers... then use that same birth rate and project the number of Israelites that would exist 400 years after they were counted in the book of Numbers.

The ONLY way the Israelites could have had such a population increase is by each Israelite male taking 8 to 10 Egyptian wives in every generation for 430 years and of course that would make every Israelite the stock of mostly Egyptians.
