The Bible states that it was 400 years “Then the Lord said to Abram, ‘Know for certain that your offspring will be sojourners in a land that is not theirs and will be servants there, and they will be afflicted for 400 years,’” but some scholars say information shows the Israelites were only enslaved for 215 years.
