It's little surprise then that it has become renowned as the playground of the rich and famous -- with wealthy pleasure-seekers taking advantage of its luxury marinas, stylish casinos, annual Formula 1 Grand Prix and, of course, its highly favorable 0% rate of income tax.
In The Antiquity of the Jews (1830, 166; Book 8.3.1) Josephus says the exodus occurred 592 years before the Temple of Solomon was built which is about 960 BC.
In the process, he's lowered his overall ERA from 4.84 to 3.43. The most interesting thought that immediately comes to mind if the Bombers are able to get Gray: Would Tanaka (5.37 ERA, career-high 26 homers allowed) be in a possible four-man playoff rotation if he finishes the season as the fifth-best starter on the team behind Luis Severino, Sabathia, Gray and Jordan Montgomery?
Granted, he does carry risk because of his injury history, having missed time over the last two seasons combined due to a strained lat, trap and forearm. The Yankees have an obvious need in the rotation — not only in 2017 (Gray would be a significant upgrade over Luis Cessa and Caleb Smith) but also going forward, with CC Sabathia set to be a free agent, Michael Pineda (also a free agent to be) having undergone Tommy John surgery and Masahiro Tanaka's future uncertain (although at this point it would be surprising if he opts out of the final three years and remaining on his deal). The A's have been scouting various levels of the Yankees' farm system in recent days, and are reportedly interested in Class-A Charleston outfielder Estevan Florial, who the organization is very high on, and Double-A Trenton shortstop/centerfielder Jorge Mateo, among others. Gray, by the way, has only been to the playoffs once, in 2013, when he posted a 2.08 ERA in two starts. Of course, the Yankees have to get to the postseason first.
This places the date when the Israelite Faithists left Egypt at ca 1546 bce.
Although scholars disagree on dates of the Exodus, those that recognize that the expulsion of the Hyksos in the reign of Ahmose I is synonymous with the Exodus of the Hebrews, find that Egyptologists confidently assert this date to be circa 1550 bce which also concurs with the dates of the ancient Jewish Historian Josephus:
