Minoans in Crete, Egypt and Tel Kabri, Canaan part II
by Lujack Skylark
Archaelogist Manfred Bietak discovered pumice (volcanic material)and Thutmose III artifacts in the same strata. Pumice from the island of Thera explosion, the explosion caused a darkness which could be felt (Ash)over both Egypt (and Crete)Exodus 10:21-22
Minoan frescoes were no longer being painted in Egyptian tombs after Thutmose III died. Why? The Minoans were the mixed crowd (Exodus 12:38)leaving with the Hebrews in the Exodus.
Thutmose III was the Exodus pharaoh. Bible chronology 1 Kings 6:1 places his reign 480 years before Solomon's 4th year. Thutmose III did not die in 1434 B.C he died in 1495 B.C. when Moses was 80 years old. Solomon's actual reign is 1019-979 B.C. Solomon's 4th year is 1015 B.C.
Thutmose III most likely was the invader who destroyed the Minoan city on the site of Tel Kabri on his way to the Euphrates river before the Exodus took place.
The research at Tel Kabri the site which is at the crossroads of Syria and Egyptian trade will get to the right correlations in Minoan Crete, Avaris, Canaan, Syrian and Babylonian history with little doubts remaining.
We discover with each new archaeological find the Bible is a historically accurate book.
