    Since you included a “late late” view in the book, I wish you had also included an “early early” view. This would include the views of those who don’t necessarily think Thiele based chronology is correct and/or that 1Kings 6:1 (“480 years”) necessarily includes the entirety of the time of the Judges. For example, I would say it likely no coincidence that the LXX “440 years” may very well correspond to what might be characterized as the autonomous years when Israel was not in oppression/bondage during the time of the Judges. It is more than possible to see the exodus reflected Biblically and historically prior to the mid-15th century.
