Please inform me about why Scripture states that 70 came down from Canaan to Egypt and why Steven in the book of Acts contradicts this with the number 75 people.

Anti missionaries have pointed to seventy-five in Acts 7:14 as an error (Gen. 46:27; Ex. 1:5) the Masoretic Text has seventy but the LXX has seventy-five.  A Qumran text of Ex. 1:5 agrees with the LXX and Acts 7:14. So the OLDEST Hebrew text has seventy-five (Gen. 46:27 has not survived in the Scrolls).
