[Steve Miller] Bryant, Then how do you deal with 

Numbers 26:59  And the name of Amram's wife was Jochebed, the daughter of
Levi, whom her mother bare to Levi in Egypt: and she bare unto Amram Aaron
and Moses, and Miriam their sister.

Since Moses' mother was Levi's direct daughter, even taking that Jochebed
was born the year Levi died, and that Jochebed was 90 when she gave birth to
Moses, you can't get anywhere near 430 years.
