300 years gap
There is a gap of 300 years between the end of Genesis and Exodus 1:7-10.
Actually the gap is between Exodus chapter one and verses 7 and verse 10.
Genesis in Hebrew means beginnings as there are many different beginnings recorded in that book.
Exodus in Hebrew means exit or departure.
300 Year Gap
The Israelites Oppressed
1These are the names of the sons of Israel who went to Egypt with Jacob, each with his family: 2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi and Judah; 3 Issachar, Zebulun and Benjamin; 4 Dan and Naphtali; Gad and Asher. 5The descendants of Jacob numbered seventy in all; Joseph was already in Egypt.
6 Now Joseph and all his brothers and all that generation died, 7 but the Israelites were fruitful and multiplied greatly and became exceedingly numerous, so that the land was filled with them.
300 Year Gap
8 Then a new king, who did not know about Joseph, came to power in Egypt. 9 "Look," he said to his people, "the Israelites have become much too numerous for us. 10 Come, we must deal shrewdly with them or they will become even more numerous and, if war breaks out, will join our enemies, fight against us and leave the country."
11 So they put slave masters over them to
oppress them with forced labor, and they built Pithom and Rameses as
store cities for Pharaoh. 12 But the more they were
oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to
dread the Israelites 13 and worked them ruthlessly. 14They
made their lives bitter with hard labor in brick and mortar and with
all kinds of work in the fields; in all their hard labor the Egyptians
used them ruthlessly.
