In "THEOPHILUS TO AUTOLYCUS", Book 1, Chapter 28, Theophilus states:
". . . From the creation of the world to the deluge were 2242 years.
And from the deluge to the time when Abraham our forefather begat a son, 1036 years. . . "
So according to Theophilus, from Adam to Isaac = 2242 + 1036 = 3278 years
But according to the Bible (Genesis 5:3-32 and Genesis 11:10):
From the creation of the world to the deluge were 1656 years.
And according to the Bible (Genesis 11:10-26 and Genesis 21:5):
From the deluge to the time when Abraham our forefather begat a son, 392 years.
So according to the Bible, from Adam to Isaac = 1656 + 392 = 2048 years
The difference between Theophilus and the Bible:
From Adam to Isaac = 3278 - 2048 = 1230 year difference!!!

I get a commission if you buy Xero shoes
, which does not increase your cost. Barefoot running/walking is the best thing for your feet--if we did not walk on cement, asphalt, and gravel. Normal shoes compress your toes and do a lot of the work your lower leg muscles should be doing. Xero shoes are minimalist and let your toes spread and your feet do the work they are supposed to do.
