The biggest problem here is using Standard Biblical Chronology. David to Jesus is 43 generations. 43 Generations=1000 years. That is undisputed. 23 years per generation.

Abraham to David is 13 generations. Undisputed Fact. 13 x 23 = 299 years. That places Abraham 600 years later than Standard Biblical Chronology. Using the proven statistical model from 1000 years of history, the pharaoh for Abraham would have been Ramses II.

With standard chronology using 1900BC, that is an average of 69 years per generation, 3x the average for Egypt, 3x the Average for the succeeding 1000 years in Israel. To make this work, the Average King would give birth to there eldest son at the ripe age of 69 and live to 92 years old. How old were their wives? What about the fact that average life expectancy then was 52 years old?

This is why the dates before David and Solomon in the Bible cannot be trusted. Along with Methuselah living 900 years.
