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!!!
