Egyptian historians profess Egyptian history can be traced back all the way to 3400 B.C. yet when we compare each Egyptian king lists Abydos, Karnak, Sakkara and Turin plus the Palermo Stone we get a different picture on ancient Egyptian history. Perhaps the Bible is the Rosetta Stone and the key to unlocking Egyptian history which is shorter than one might
We have mankind's orgins in Sumer/Shinar building the Tower of Babel; we notice the Egyptians erecting their Step Pyramid in Sumer design in Zoser's reign. Then there is Abraham age 75 visiting a corruptable old Egyptian king Pepi II. There is drought in the Middle-East, where Abraham fights over a well, and Hagar discovers a well at this critical time when Mentuhotep II has wells dug along the Nubian and Egyptian trade route.
We have God telling Isaac not to enter Egypt when the "Throat Sliter of Asiatics" Senusret I reigns.
Joseph made the Egyptian kings: Senusret III, Amenemhet III and Amenemhet IV prosper. It was pharaoh Ahmose who struck Joseph's name from all Egyptian records, while it was Thutmose I who slew Hebrew male babies and princess Hatshepsut was the one who saved Moses life.
The pharaoh forcing all to bow down before Egyptian gods except Moses was pharaoh Thutmose III the Exodus pharaoh.
One can forget about all those long Egyptian king lists and zero in on what these few Egyptian kings did and one will discover the Bible is one amazing accurate book.
