|Bible Question (short): How many generations betw Exodus-Solomon|
Question (full): 1 Kings 6:1 records that King David's son Solomon built the temple 480 years after Israel came up out of Egypt. I need to reconcile this with Matthew 1, which lists only five generations from Salmon (who married Rahab of Jericho right after the Exodus) to King David: Salmon, Boaz, Obed, Jesse, David? 480 years seems too long for five generations, so I suspect I am missing a clarification elsewhere in scripture.
