A:Genesis chapter 12:4 says that Abraham, then known as Abram, was 75 years old when he left Haran.

Genesis 17:17 says that Abraham was exactly 100 years old and Sarah was 90 years old when Isaac was born. These seem improbable ages for them to have their sons, not only because of their extreme ages but because they are such nice, round numbers, implying that Abraham was not really a hundred years old. Coincidences like this, and Isaac being exactly 60 years old when Jacob was born, point to legend not fact.

Even when Abraham died, his age points to the secret use of numerology based on the number 17, as do the ages of Sarah, Isaac and Jacob :

- Abraham lived to 175 (5 X 5 X 7)
- Isaac lived to 180 (6 X 6 X 5)
- Jacob lived to 147 (7 X 7 X 3

- Each lifespan involves a perfect square (5, 6, then 7 in a numeric series),
- the third factor also forms a series (7, 5, 3)
- in each case the sum of the factors is 17.

Then we find that Genesis says Sarah lived to 127 years, which is the sum of these consecutive square numbers plus 17 (127 = 52 +62 + 72 + 17). All too much of a coincidence to be plausibly true.
