I would like to see Egyptian history correlated with Israelite history side by side. Who were the Pharoah's of Moses, Joseph, David etc.

How is Africa and the Hebrews related and exactly where are they now?

Hebrew Exodus
by: Anonymous

No doubt the Minoans represented the mixed crowd leaving Egypt with the Hebrews (Exodus 12:38).

Minoan frescoes are no longer painted in Egypt after Thutmose III because he is the Exodus king.

Pumice was used to make idols towards the end of Thutmose III's reign when the island of Thera blew up, creating darkness over Egypt for 3 days.

Israel, Egyptian and Minoan History
by: David

Tel Kabri, in western Galilee archaeologists discovered a Minoan palace dated to Egyptian king Senusret III's reign when Joseph was in Egypt.

Qatna,Syria archaeologist also found Minoan artifacts.

Cannanites, Minoans, Jacob's family were all in Egypt at the same time in world history.

Minoans brought Amenemhet II tribute
Minoans built Senusret II his temple. Minoans live at Avaris,Egypt during Senusret III's reign

Minoans are paid a visit on the island
of Crete by Amenemhet III's fleet. Egyptains see Labyrinth and build one in Egypt.

Minoans continue trade with Amenemhet
IV and Queen Sobekneferu. Minoan ax found in Ahmose mother's grave.

Hyksos leave in the first Exodus.
Minoans and Hebrews remain in Egypt's delta during Amenhotep I's reign.

Minoans draw frescoes at Avaris during
Thutmose I reign.Minoans like leaping over bulls.
Queen Hatshepsut worships the cow goddess Hathor.

Minoans are part of the mixed crowd in
Exodus 12:38. Minoan island of Crete shaken as Thera blows up creating darkness during 3 days (Exodus 10:21-22)Ash = darkness that can be felt.

Minoans depart with the Hebrews in the
second Exodus in Thutmose III reign. Amenhotep II reign the Hebrews worship the golden calf.

Minoan pottery is replaced by Mycenaen
pottery about the time Amenhotep III comes to power shortly before Joshua invades Canaan.

Egyptian Irrigation Project
by: Thomas

The Minoans appeared in Egypt in Amenemhet II's 28th year bringing him the Tod treasure as tribute

The Minoans built Senusret II his temple at Lahun.
The Minoans helped Senusret II start the Fayum irrigation project modeled after the mainland Greek Boeotia project.

Senusret III continues the Fayum irrigation project. Some Minoans settle at Avaris, Egypt.
Global famine strikes. (Genesis 41:57) The Canaanite Hyksos enter Egypt.

Babylonian king Abi-Eshuh dams up the Tigris river trying to starve out the Sealanders. The Babylonian farmers divert water into their fields

Amenemhet III completes the Fayum irrigation project making Egypt more prosperous selling more produce than even Senusret III.

Babylonian farmers fail in their crop yields. Many owe merchants money and as payment sell themselves into slavery. They help complete the Fayum irrigation project.

The Fayum canal is called Bahr Yusef (Joseph's canal) and Egypt becomes the world's breadbasket.

Minoan Linear A language is Western Semitic, which is basically Canaanite or the Hebrew language.

There appears to be the Canaanite Hyksos living in both Egypt and the island of Crete.

Egyptian king Thutmose III was the pharaoh of the Exodus. The Hebrews left Egypt. After Thutmose III Minoan pottery begins disappearing.
Mycenaean pottery replaces Minoan pottery.

Mycenaean Linear B language is Greek. It begins to become the dominate language in Egyptian king Amenhotep III's reign.

Joshua enters Canaan in Amenhotep III's reign. (Tel-Amarna letters) The Semitic Linear A language on the island of Crete now ends.

Exodus 1:8
by: Anonymous

Now there arose a king who knew not Joseph. (Exodus 1:8) Why? The Egyptian king Ahmose had purged Joseph's name from all Egyptian records.

Moses name was deleted from Egyptian records from the pharaoh who suffered the ten plagues.

The princess who saved Moses life (Exodus 2:5-10)
is mentioned by the Jewish historian Josephus.

The princess name is Thermuthis, from the Thutmose family. It was princess Hatshepsut who saved the infant Moses.

Hatshepsut's father was Thutmose I, the Hebrew male baby slayer who knew not Joseph.(Exodus 1:8)

Thutmose I was paranoid about a possible slave revolt before his army invaded Asia. Thutmose I
wanted to reduce the Hebrew population.

Thutmose II was a sickly king. Queen Hatshepsut ran his government.

Thutmose III had 17 military victories in Asia. All captives were required to worship Egyptian gods. Moses did not. Thutmose III is the Exodus pharaoh.

Modern man won't research ancient history which matches our Bible, yet supports those who mock the Jewish people.

10 Reasons why the research works
by: Rex

Ten good reasons for eliminating Egypt's false dynasties.

(1)Thebean Mentuhotep IV was assassinated by Amenemhet I and Ahmose's family assassinated Amenemhet IV 215 years later. 1843-1628 B.C.

(2)The Story of (Sin)-hue was written in Senusret I reign 1813-1777 B.C. when (Sin)-muballit reigns over Babylon 1812-1793 B.C.

(3)The pattern works. Pepi I & Pepi II reign. Then Mentuhotep Thebean dynasty.(Amenemhet-Senusret dynasty) Apepi I & Apepi II. Then Ahmose Thebean dynasty.

(4)Amenemhet II 1777-1743 B.C. receives Tod treasure from the Minoans in his 28th year in 1749 B.C. Babylonian king Samsu-luna begins his reign in 1749 B.C. An alliance against Babylon?

(5)Amenemhet III 1685-1640 B.C. now has trade with Babylon's king Ammi-ditana 1683-1647 B.C.
Babylonian slaves complete Bahr Yusef (Joseph's canal)Canaanite king Khyan at Avaris, Egypt has trade with Babylon and the Minoans.

(6)The Minoans also bought Babylonian slaves. Minoan A language is Babylonian Semitic origin.

(7)Number(3)gives insight why the Egyptian 7-10 and most of the 11th Egyptian dynasties are a hoax along with the 13-16 and most of the 17th dynasties are a hoax.

(8)It appears that Amorite Babylon's power declined somewhat after king Hammurabi died in 1750 B.C. Then the global famine hit the world.
(Genesis 41:57)in Abi-Eshuh's reign.

Some 14 years after the global famine Babylonian
king Ammi-ditani merchants began selling Babylonian slaves to Egypt and the Minoans on the island of Crete.

(9)Babylonian, Canaanite, Egyptian and Minoan history coming together in Bible chronology.

(10)The Minoans were part of the mixed crowd.
(Exodus 12:38)They left in the second Hebrew Exodus. The first Exodus the Hyksos/Canaanites left Egypt.

It is interesting the Thebean Ahmose mother was buried with a Minoan ax. Did the Minoans fight against the Hyksos/Canaanites at Avaris, Egypt?

The Five Hyksos Kings at Avaris
by: Anonymous

Hyksos/Canaanite king She-shi may have come from She-chem, entering Egypt during Egyptian king Senusret III's reign as his captive.

Hyksos/Canaanite king Yaku-bher reigned over the city of Avaris. Yak-ov/Yaku-b represents the name Jacob. Yaku-bher likely reigned over Avaris when Senusret III and Jacob had died.

Hyksos/Canaanite king Khyan reigned at Avaris. Khyan had trade with Babylon and Crete. Egypt-
ian king Amenemhet III trades with Babylon and Crete.

Hyksos/Canaanite king Apepi I warred with Ahmose father Seqenenre Tao. Amenemhet IV then dies.

Hyksos/Canaanite king Apepi II or Kamudi reigning at Avaris wars against Ahmose. The Hyksos lose and the Hyksos are driven out of Egypt.

Abydos Egyptian kings list shows after Amenemhet IV dies the next king is Ahmose. This research
unlocks that possibility.

We know Joseph controlled the economies of both the Hyksos (Canaanites)and the Egyptians. (Genesis 47:13-17)

The Canaanites came to Egypt during a great world famine. (Genesis 41:57) Hyksos entry in Egypt.

Jacob lived at Shechem before migrating to Bethel. (Genesis 35:3-6)

God terrorized the Canaanite cities around Shechem. Egyptian king Senusret III then invaded Canaan and annexed Canaan. (Genesis 35:5)

The Hyksos/Canaanites were in Egypt from Senusret III's reign until late in Ahmose reign. These Hyksos/Canaanites were in Egypt for only 94 years.

What's in a name?
by: Anonymous

What about the connection with Se-(qen)-en-re Tao the Thebean king and Apepi I (A-(qen)-en-re) the Hyksos king he has war with?

What about prince Ma-ak-her-ure born in Amenemhet III's reign and Hyksos king Y-(ak)ub-(her)?

The Hyksos entered Egypt in 1702 B.C., the same year Jacob entered Egypt. It was during the second year of the global world famine. (Genesis 41:57)

The Hyksos were finally defeated by Ahmose in 1608 B.C., living in Egypt 91 years and Sharuhen, Canaan some 3 years.

Joseph lived in Egypt for 93 years. Moses was born 56 years after Joseph had died.

Joseph was 39 years old when Jacob arrived in Egypt. Joseph had lived 22 years in Egypt at this time.

94-22=72 years. Plus 72 + Sobeknefru's 3 years = 75 years Plus 16 years in Ahmose reign before Hyksos defeated in Egypt = 91 years.

Ahmose 3 years at Sharuhen 91 + 3 = 94 years.

What is in a name?
by: Anonymous

The pharoah called Joseph Zaph-(nath)-pa-a-ne-ah &
Joseph's wife is called As-e-(nath). (Genesis 41:45)A-(sen)ath lived during (Sen)usret III's reign.

The Hyksos/Amorite/Canaanite kings A-pepi I & A-pepi II was likely named after Pepi I & Pepi II.

Pepi I warred with the Amorites five times and towards the very end of Pepi II's reign the Amorites invaded Egypt.

Ahmose wife was called (Ahmose)-Nefertari just like Joseph's (nath) matches his wife's (nath)

Ahmose family may have named rival Apepi I & Apepi II after the decline caused by the Pepi I and Pepi II in Egyptian history before the arise of Mentuhotep II. (Sakkara Egyptian kings list)

Ahmose son AMEN-Hotep named after AMENemhet 12th dynasty and Mentu-HOTEP 11th dynasty.

Moses was born during Thut-MOSE I reign and Thut-Mose III was the Exodus pharaoh.

The Chronology of Ahmose
by: Anonymous

Egyptian king Ahmose had to reign BEFORE the Amorite Babylonian kingdom fell in 1595 B.C.

Why? Ahmose was the first king to worship the moon-god Iah BEFORE the Amorite/Hyksos/Canaanites were driven out of Egypt.

Amorite/Babylonian king Samsu-ditanna 1625-1595 B.C. was a moon worshipper.

Ahmose reign was 1628-1603 B.C. Ahmose drove the Hyksos from Egypt and defeated them at Sharuhen, Canaan.

Hittite king Musilas brought down the Amorite Babylonian empire in 1595 B.C. some 13 years AFTER
Ahmose defeated the Amorites at Sharuhen.

Amorites had power for 400 years. (Genesis 15:13-16) Amorite Babylonians reigned for 300 years.
Amorites were powerful for 100 more years in Syria
(1895-1595 B.C.) and (1595-1495 B.C.)

Egyptian king Thutmose III broke the Amorites power. Thutmose III (Bible chronology) died in 1495 B.C.

Its interesting Ahmose chose the moon god Iah to worship at the same time the Amorites in Babylon worshipped the moon-god Sin.

Today, the Moslems worship the moon-god Allah.
The cresent moon is found on many Moslem nations flags.

Tomb of Rekhmire

The Tomb of Rekhmire shows Semitic people making bricks in Thutmose III's reign.

These Semitic people are most likely Hebrews. Here is another example showing the Hebrews were in Egypt.

Israel and Egyptian history
by: Tom

Judah's king Asa 959-918 B.C. stops the Ethiopian Zerah's 1,000,000 man army in his 10th year 949 B.C. (2 Chronicles 14:1 & 14:9)

Egyptian/Libyan king Osorkon I 974-938 B.C. let 1,000,000 Ethiopians pass through his land. Asa's army wins total victory against the Ethiopians. The Ethiopians would not become powerful again until Judah's king Ahaz reigns. At that time the Ethiopian king Piankhi overruns Egypt.

Egyptian/Libyan king Shishak 995-974 B.C. had used the Ethiopians (2 Chronicles 12:2-3) when he attacked Judah's king Rehoboam. (1 Kings 14:25)Shishak took gold as tribute from Rehoboam.

Senusret III & the Global Famine
by: Tom

Egyptian king Senusret III's sister was Sit-Hathor-Yunet who worshiped the vulture goddess Nekhbet.

Vulture goddess represents a symbol to ward off famine. There was a global famine striking Egypt when Joseph reigned as governor. (Genesis 41:57) and (Genesis 41:40-43)

Ancient Israel and Ancient Egyptian History
by: Rick

And God terrorized the Canaanite cities around Shechem while Jacob and his family was safe at Bethel. (Genesis 35:4-6)

Egyptian historians have little idea why Egyptian pharaoh Senusret III's army fought around Shechem.

God sent in Senusret's III army to distract the kings of the Canaanite cities from attacking Jacob and his family.

The Bible wins again in revealing the facts in Egypt's mysterious hidden history.

The Israel and Egyptian connection
by: Lujack Skylark

Pharoah Senusret III 1724-1685 B.C. army in the 20th year 1704 B.C. almost did not make it back from Nubia because the Nile river was so low.

Global famine was 1704-1697 B.C. (Genesis 41:57)Jacob arrives in Egypt at age 130 in 1702 B.C. (Genesis 47:9)when Joseph is 39 years old.

Amorite Babylonian king Abi-Eshuh 1710-1684 B.C. dams up the Tigris river trying to starve out the Sealanders in the global famine years.

Pharoah Amenemhet III 1685-1640 B.C. uses Babylonian slaves to complete his irrigation projects. (Joseph lives in Egypt)

Amorite Babylonian king Ammi-ditanni 1683-1647 B.C. Merchants charge 33% on loans to farmers. Those farmers who cannot repay are sold into slavery.

Pharoah Amenemhet IV 1640-1631 B.C. keeps Sinai mines open. (Joseph dies in 1631 B.C.)

Amorite Babylonian king Ammi-saduqa 1646-1626 B.C. passes law which requires all merchants to forgive the debts that the Babylonian citizens owe. Ammi-saduqa worshiped the moon, stars and the planet Venus.

Queen Sobekneferu 1631-1628 B.C. reign is unstable.

Pharoah Ahmose 1628-1603 B.C. worships the moon-god Iah. (Abydos Egyptian kings list the next king to follow Amenemhet IV is Ahmose.)Destroyed all records of Joseph. Thutmose I would be the pharaoh who knew not Joseph. (Exodus 1:8)

Pharoah Amenhotep I 1603-1582 B.C. likes 12th dynasty calenders. Name AMEN-hotep for AMENnemhet
(12th dynasty) and Mentu-HOTEP (11th dynasty)

Thebean Mentuhotep IV was slain by Amenemhet I. Perhaps Thebean Ahmose slew Amenemhet IV.

Janine Bourriau
by: John Walker

Janine Bourriau actually said 12th dynasty pottery style appeared in Egypt's 13,14,15,16 and 17 Egyptian dynasties. She did not eliminate the second intermediate dynasties.

Janine Bourriau discovered the Hyksos came to Egypt in peace, not war like Egyptian historian Manetho said. Manetho lied.

The Hyksos succeeded in preserving the culture of Egypt's 12th dynasty, however the 13-17th dynasty history is quite fragmented.

Who knows? Maybe there was a civil war which brought down the 12th Egyptian dynasty. The majority of the kings listed in the 13-17th dynasties have no history.

Israel and Egyptian History
by: Jack

Archaeologist Janine Bourriau working in Egypt's delta didn't find any artifacts besides the 12th and late 17th dynasties. The second intermediate dynasties are not factual except for Tao and Kamose.

Archaeologist Manfred Bietak (Oxford History of Egypt. Ian Shaw. 2000 A.D. p.190)found a pit with Amenemhet IV (12th dynasty) and Ahmose (18th dynasty)artifacts. Between Ahmose and Amenemhet IV Bietak estimated 285 years existed. Why invent 285 years?

Seems strange he did not declare the 13th and most of the 17th dynasties a hoax.

One might expect the 12th dynasty ended in civil war which the Egyptian scribes invented the second intermediate period to cover up Ahmose bringing an end to the 12th prosperous Egyptian dynasty made prosperous by Joseph.

One might expect the 6th dynasty ended after Abraham visited Pepi II. No major building projects occurred until Mentuhotep II. Egyptian scribes invented a cover story by creating the first intermediate dynasties to hide the plagues God brought against Egypt in Genesis 12:17 towards the end of Pepi II's reign.

Ancient Israel and Ancient Egyptian History II
by: Rick

Egyptian king Senusret III had Joseph collect all the land from the nomarch's except the priest's land. (Genesis 47:20-22)The Hebrews were not enslaved at this time in Egyptian history until the 4th generation.

Egyptian king Ahmose offered all soldiers fighting with him Egyptian land. Soon after Ahmose expelled the Hyksos/Canaanites-the Hebrews were enslaved.

Some 94 years pass from when Senusret III confiscates the nomarch's land until the land begins to be divided to Ahmose army.

Jan 14, 2012
Ancient Israel and Ancient Egyptian History
by: Tom

There were four generations of Hebrews in Egypt before the Exodus. Joseph saw three generations. (Genesis 50:23)Moses was born in the fourth generation some 56 years after Joseph died.

Joseph lived for 110 years; Joseph lived 93 years in Egypt. Joseph served under the Egyptian kings Senusret III 39 years, Amenemhet III 45 years and Amenemhet IV 9 years some 93 years. (So called 12th dynasty.)

The 56 years represent queen Sobekneferu, Ahmose, Amenhotep I and part of Thutmose I reign. (The Abydos Egyptian kings list shows after Amenemhet IV dies the next king is Ahmose 18th dynasty)

The second intermediate dynasties show so little history. Egyptian king Seqenenre Tao is mentioned in a children's story having a hippo which roar was heard some 500 miles away waking up the Hyksos/Canaanite king.

There is little history for the second intermediate dynasties since the Abydos kings list shows those kings did not exist.

What happened? Thebean Seqenenre Tao and his two sons: Kamose and Ahmose must have revolted against Amenemhet IV & queen Sobekneferu since these two rulers mysteriously died. Ahmose mother was queen Aahotep. A Minoan ax was found in her coffin proving a war had taken place. Queen Sobekneferu successive queen must have been Aahotep. The Hyksos/Canaanites therefore were on Sobekneferu's side in a civil war which covered up the conclusion of the 12th Egyptian dynasty.

The Canaanite/Hyksos lived in Egypt arriving in Senusret III's reign during the global world famine. (Genesis 41:57)Some 94 years later Ahmose would drive the Canaanites out of Egypt in the first Exodus. (The Execration Texts mentioning foreigners in Egypt were written during Senusret III's reign)

The pharaoh who ordered the death of Hebrew male babies was Thut-mose I. The princess who found Moses was queen Hatshepsut.

Israel and Egyptian history
by: Tom

Israel's history starts with Abraham, the man from Ur who was born in the reign of Egyptian king Pepi II.

Pepi II was in love with one of his generals named Sasenet, who patrolled southern Canaan in the region of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Pepi II's naked male and female slaves were coated with honey to keep the flies off him.

Abraham would enter Egypt at age 75, Sarah was 65 and Pepi II was 96 years old.

God plagued Egypt near the very end of Pepi II's reign. (Genesis 12:17)

The Memphis dynasty ended when Pepi II died and Thebes became the new Egyptian capitol. Ipuwer Papyrus mentions a great plague.

God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah some 20 years after Pepi II died. Egyptian king Mentuhotep II fought in the civil war which occurred after Pepi II had died at age 100.

(Sakkara kings list mentions the next king to arise in power after Pepi II was Mentuhotep II)

The first intermediate dynasties show very little history, just rebellion which Mentuhotep II brings to an end in his 39th year of reign. The first intermediate dynasties really never happened.

Shishak - invades Israel in Rehoboam's 5th year of reign. (1 Kings 14:25)

1 Kings 6:1 480 years before Solomon's 4th year = the Exodus. Solomon reigns 36 more years = 516 years. Plus Rehoboam's 5th year = 521 years after the Exodus. We have 521 years of history which correlates Israel and Egyptian history together.

Egyptian king Pepi II reigned over Egypt some 94 years. Archaeogist report the next Egyptian king who built on a massive scale after Pepi II was Mentuhotep II. Sakkara Egyptian king's list reveals after Pepi II died the next king is Mentuhotep II. Egyptian Abydos kings list reveals the next king after Amenemhet IV was Ahmose.

This means Pepi II's reign at 2278-2184 B.C. should be lowered to 2007-1913 B.C. Abraham lived 1992-1817 B.C. (Genesis 25:7) Pepi II had trade with Sodom a city destroyed in 1893 B.C. Pepi II artifacts were found at Byblos. An earthquake struck Byblos the same time Sodom was destroyed.

Israel and Egyptian History
by: Lujack Skylark

Egyptian pharoah Senusret III confiscated all the land of the nomarch's controlling most of the land of Egypt except for the priests land.
(Genesis 47:20-22)Joseph bought all the land for the pharaoh except for the priest land.

Jacob's sons slew all the males of Shechem, Canaan. (Genesis 34:25 & Genesis 35:5-6)Jacob's family fled to Bethel as all the cities around Shechem felt God's wrath.

Senusret III's army skirmished around Shechem, Canaan.

Senusret III had horses and chariots used for ceremonial purposes and not war. (Genesis 41:43) Joseph rode the second chariot. Egyptians in both (ceremonial) chariots and horsemen marched with Joseph when they buried Jacob in Canaan.

Horse skeleton found at Buhen, Nubia (Sudan) dated to Senusret III's reign showing horses were used in Egypt's Amenemhet/Senusret dynasty.

Canal in Egypt called Bahr Yosef (Yosuf?)Joseph's canal completed in Amenemhet III's reign showing us that Joseph was in Egypt.

It was princess Hatshepsut who found the infant Moses in the Nile river. Her father was Thutmose I the Hebrew male baby slayer. Hatshepsut helped the sickly Thutmose II reign over Egypt and Thutmose III is the pharaoh of the Exodus.

(1 Kings 6:1 chronology helps set Thutmose III as the Exodus pharaoh)Tel-Amarna letters state the Haribu (Hebrews) have attacked Canaan in the reign of Egyptian king Amenhotep III some 40 years after the Exodus. Amenhotep's son is Akenaton whose uncle is Tushratta the Cushan-Rishathaim of Judges 3:8 proving the Exodus occured before Amenhotep III.

An Answer, and where to look.
by: Lawrence Hebb

Hi Ken,

It would be great to know exactly which Pharaoh it was that faced Moses and some work has been done in that area, but Archaeologists are still discussing exactly when it was.

If we take the Bible's chronology literally, and the Temple of Solomon was completed in 970BC, then the conquest of Canaan happened around 1410 BC (The destruction of Jericho has been dated around this time! God used an Earthquake!)

That means that the Exodus happened in 1450 BC. This was during the reign of Ramses II, the most powerful of all the Pharaohs in Ancient Egypt.

Not every scholar dates it like this, but this is a good baseline from which to start.
