Hebrew, Habiru & Apiru - the same?

by Justin Wade

I am amazed at how much research was put in this article.. I have only heard of the apiru on Monday.. I'm still doing research on the habiru/Hebrew connection and my conclusion is that the Hebrew and the habiru are one and the same, due to Egyptian literature mentioning them working stone for ramses and taking over Jerusalem. Egypt was using apiru as an Egyptian name for the Hebrews.. since we have evidence for apiru and the Hebrews being one and the same, maybe just maybe we can find the Egyptian name for Moses, we have one for Joseph as Imotep. May God bless you for brining light to this.
