God made a promise to King David that one of his sons/kinsman would always reign on the throne. 2 Samuel 7:16 (NASB) 16 "Your house and your kingdom shall endure before Me forever; your throne shall be established forever."'" But it's even more profound than that as God gives King David even more detail that Christ would be Prophet, Priest and King: ...

The Idea in Brief The Greek term ὠδίν appears to carry the idea of confinement, which results in anguish. For example, the pregnant woman is "trapped" in pain, and thus anguish.

To summarise: On the one hand we have the evidence of Stephen's speech and the vuv consecutive (or consecutive preterite) וַיֹּאמֶר of Genesis 12:1. On the other hand, we have the arithmetic demonstrating that Abram left Haran before his father died. If one wishes to reconcile these, it is really very simple.
