I've been studying some Scripture for a while, a lot of which has been Genesis. Soon after a friend took me to his Bible study, three of us were reading more and discussing different beliefs.

That's a great, very helpful answer. Thanks.

comment Are the periods in Revelation a single period of 3 and 1/2 years or something else?
I don't know if this is the type of answer you're looking for, so here's a comment for now. These 3-1/2 years could be references to the 3-1/2 years of drought Elijah had, shown via Luke 4:25 "But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;" and also with James 5:17 "17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.".

Are you also looking for anywhere else in Scripture (besides in Revelation and Daniel) when a 3-1/2 year stretch of time is mentioned, in those ways or any other?

Thanks. My remaining question would be about the flood having lasted more than one year, so his age would have changed over that stretch of time.

Yes. That's why I was also reading the YLT's Gen 7:6 with "waters hath been" upon the earth.

comment How many times did Peter really deny Christ?
@Fred Oakman These do differ a lot. It seems that in Matthew and Mark (KJV) Peter strongly replies to statements and almost pointed fingers, to maids and then bystanders; he ends up cursing and swearing. In Luke he calmly replies to statements with just “I am not” or “I know him not”, first to a maid, then to a man, then to another man. In John he also replies calmly, but actually by answering questions; those are from a maid, then a group, then one servant.

comment How can the 3 Questions be resolved with the math still correct?
@fdb With that working from an assumption, couldn't the results change if the assumption were changed, even though he was still 500?

comment Calculation of date from Genesis 7:11
@Sarah I agree with the way Cohen stated the difference and how fdb replied. Combining the two you might say that the amount of time gone by, since the day of Noah's birth, has been 599 years, 1 month and 16 days. Now Noah is on to the 17th day.

comment Who is the woman in Revelation 12?
@Jas 3.1 Having just read Revelation again, I considered asking this type of question, but then looked for previous ones. Great, thorough answer! I guess I had already given you at +1. Thank you.

comment How can the 3 Questions be resolved with the math still correct?
@DarkHeart I don't believe we're supposed to round these particular figures, especially since the detail takes the time of events to even the day. I think there's a message within the math of this. Soldarnal sort of addressed this being so interesting via a question he had hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/q/4672/2873

@fdb If it says somewhere above that a person's age is counted from conception forward, I agree that's a mistake. Thanks.
