Duration of Stay in Egypt

If 210 years comes from 400 years – 60 years (birth of Isaac to birth of Jacob) – 130 years (birth of Jacob to Jacob’s arrival in Egypt), then what’s the significance of 430 years? What happened 30 years before Isaac was born?Note: The covenant between the pieces could not have been 30 years before Isaac because Abraham only left Haran 25 years before Isaac.

Just had a thought — could it be 400 years of oppression, but it’s not continuous, so 30 years of Egyptians being nice is found somewhere interrupting the middle of those 400 years?
