Jews vs Hebrews

by Eric Goldston

Exodus 2-19 says;

"and they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hands of the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us and watered the flock."

The Egyptian they were talking about was Moses. So, if Hebrews or Jews are white, how could they mistake Moses, who was Hebrew, for a black Egyptian?

Even Moses was said to be Egyptian. Egyptians had been all the time a mixed race with Semitic and Nubian (black) influence. So all talking here is without sense.

Anyhow, Moses was a person of myths and he, as a real person, never existed. The story of his birth is stolen by Akkadian stories; and the Exodus never took place. Moses went out off Egypt with more than 600.000 soldiers ( + young,old, females) ... that would make some 3.5 million people.

Any why do the writings never tell anything of the Pharaohs i.e. naming them?

All just biblical myths.

What Color was Moses?
by: Eric

My question is concerns the racial make-up of Moses. If Moses, a Hebrew, was white like the the Jews of today are, then how could he be mistaken for a black Egyptian?

Moses the Israelite Egyptian Prince
by: Henry

The answer is very simple, for this it is necessary to read Exodus chapter one. Moses was the great great, great, great grandson of Levi the son of Jacob, placed in the Nile river, found by the Egyptian Princess, and exiled to Midian for trying to free his Israelite Brethren.

That is how Moses, an adopted Egyptian prince, met the daughters of Jethro the Midianite.

It surely must have been obvious that the people believed Moses to be Egyptian as he had attended the Royal Court and was considered to be the brother of Pharoah ?

He was well versed in both Egyptian & Hebrew ways of life, so he could carry his position with ease....
