Egyptian Chronology is Unreliable

by Tom

Egyptian chronology is unreliable. One should check the Biblical texts to uncover mankind's real history.


(1) What happened to the Egyptians when they left Sumer/Shinar migrating from Iraq/Babylon to north-east Africa? The first pyramid (The Step Pyramid)was built shortly after the Egyptians settled in Africa.
(2)Who was the pharoah who took Sarah into his household and was plagued? The Pharoah was Pepi II who had trade relations with Sodom. The Memphis dynasty fell shortly after Abraham and Sarah left Egypt when Pepi II died and Sodom fell shortly after when the Thebean dynasty came to power.
(3) Why did Mentuhotep II dig 12 wells, Hagar and Ishmael's lives depended on well water and Abraham fought over a well? The answer is there was a drought in the Middle-East.
(4)Why was Isaac told not to enter Egypt? Senusret I was a throat sliter of Asiatics and Egypt was experiencing famine.
(5)Why did Egyptian king Senusret III invade Canaan? The Amorite kings were angered Jacob family had killed the male population of Shechem and God sent the Amorites terror. Jacob and family later enters Egypt in Senusret III's reign when Joseph is governor of Egypt. Jacob would eventually witness the third Hebrew generation being born in Egypt.
(6)Why did the Egyptian king Thutmose I know not Joseph? Pharoah Ahmose had stricken Joseph's name from all Egyptian records.
(7)Who was the Egyptian princess who saved baby Moses. It was Thutmose I daughter Hatshepsut. (8)Who was the pharoah of the Exodus? It was Thutmose III whose reign ended 480 years before Israel's king Solomon's 4th year. (1 Kings 6:1)
(9)What Egyptian king received letters from Canaanite kings stating the Haribu (Hebrews) had invaded Canaan? The Egyptian king was Amenhotep III.
(10)What Egyptian king started monotheism worship in Egypt after Joshua had died? Egyptian king Akenaton whose poetry is similar to Psalms 104 established monotheism in Egypt.

Egyptian chronology is flawed. There is no connection with Egypt and our Bible until we investigate Egyptian history without using the highly mythical Egyptian king list.

Where Babylon, the Bible and Egyptian History are tied Together
by: John part four

Egyptian king Amenhotep I 1603-1582 B.C. fights a war against Nubia. Amenhotep I is interested in 12th dynasty calenders trying to uncover real Egyptian chronological events. Amenhotep I likes to study the moon and the stars like Amorite Babylonian king Ammi-saduqa 1646-1626 B.C. studied the moon, stars and the planet Venus.

Amorite/Babylonian king Samsu-ditana 1625-1595 B.C. reigns peacefully in Babylon until Hittite king Mursilas sacks Babylon and the Sealander king Gandash brings down the Amorite empire. The last 100 years of the Amorite 400 years of power 1895-1495 B.C. (Genesis 15:13-16) the Amorites are powerful when they fight the Hittites, Mitanni, Thutmose I and Thutmose III in Syria. Amorite power is crushed by Amenhotep II whom put down two Amorite rebellions after Thutmose III had died.

Archaeologist Zahi Hawass stated Thutmose I mummy has not been found. The mummy thought to be Thutmose I was that of a 30 year old man. Egyptian literature reveals Thutmose I was a very old man when he died. Moses was born in 1575 B.C.

Egyptian king Thutmose I 1582-1528 B.C. fought Hittite king Zidanta's 1564-1551 B.C. army. Hittites pay Thutmose I tribute. Thutmose I also fought Mitanni king Parattarna 1542-1516 B.C. army which also benefited the Amorites.

It was Thutmose I who actually had a 54 year reign which queen Hatshepsut was co-regent 22 of those years and Thutmose III reigned alone for 33 years.

Thutmose I was the Hebrew baby slayer. (Exodus 1:15-16)Moses was born 1575 B.C. when Hatshepsut was princess. Thutmose II was sickly. Hatshepsut took over his power. Moses fled Egypt for killing an Egyptian in 1535 B.C. Hatshepsut was now queen since Thutmose I was senile but Egyptian administrators wanted Moses dead, so he waited until age 80 in 1495 B.C. to return to Egypt.

Queen Hatshepsut worshipped the cow goddess Hathor and the Hebrews in the wilderness a generation later worshipped the golden calf. (Exodus 32:23-24)

Thutmose III 1528-1495 B.C. weakens Amorite power with 17 military campaigns into Amorite territory. Its his son Amenhotep II who must crush Amorite power. The Amorites revolt after hearing about the Hebrew miracle at the Red Sea. (Joshua 2:10) The Hebrews (Haribu)invaded Canaan during Amenhotep III's reign according to the Tel-Amarna letters.

Where Babylon, the Bible and Egyptian history are tied together give us insight to the fact our Bible is the word of GOD. Our Bible is historically accurate.

Where Babylon, the Bible and Egyptian History are tied Together
by: John part three

Egyptian king Amenemhet III 1685-1640 B.C. the Egyptian fleet visits the Minoan island of Crete and Egyptian sailors see the Labyrinth. Amenemhet III builds a Labyrinth in Egypt. Hyksos/Canaanite chieftain Khyan according to scarabs has trade with Crete.

Amorite/Babylonian king Ammi-ditana 1683-1647 B.C. reigns at Babylon. Merchants charge 33% on loans in the form of crops or 20% payment in silver. Many Babylonian farmers are sold into slavery to the Egyptians and Cretans. Babylonian slaves help Amenemhet III complete the Faiyum irrigation project. Canal completed is called Bahr Yusef (Joseph's canal).

Amorite/Babylonian king Ammi-saduqa 1646-1626 B.C. passes a law requiring all merchants to forgive farmers debts. Any merchant ignoring the law is executed. The slave trade to Egypt and Crete ends.

Egyptian king Amenemhet IV 1640-1631 B.C. keeps the Sinai mines prospering. Joseph dies in 1631 B.C. Some Egyptians resented Joseph giving their ancestors land to Senusret III. (Genesis 47:20)

The Thebeans hated the Amenemhet/Senusret dynasty and they revolted. Amenemhet IV dies a few months later in 1631 B.C.

Nubian pottery has not been found in Senusret III reign in Egyptain territory. Senusret III stopped Nubian immigration into Egypt. Nubian pottery then reappears during Seqenenre Tao's revolt indicating the second intermediate dynasties were a hoax.

Ahmose father, Thebean Seqenenre Tao, stages a revolt and Amenemhet IV is killed. (Thebean Mentuhotep IV was slain by Amenemhet I and Thebean Ahmose family slays Amenemhet IV) The Hyksos chieftain Apepi I then slays Tao in battle. Queen Sobeknefru 1631-1628 B.C. then reigns at Itj-tawy and Kamose reigns at Thebes. Both are killed in this civil war; both had short reigns. Apepi I is left in control of Avaris when 10 year old Ahmose is king of Thebes;Apepi I is crowned king at Avaris.

Egyptian scribes tell a tale about the start of this war in a children's story stating a hippo in Tao's reign woke up Apepi I some 500 miles away at Avaris starting the war. Egyptian Abydos king list states the next king to reign after Amenemhet IV was Ahmose.

Egyptian king Ahmose 1628-1603 B.C. fights Hyksos/Canaanite king Apepi II or Khamudi. Ahmose drives the Canaanites out of Egypt in the first Exodus. The Minoans who are in Egypt's delta are part of the mixed crowd. (Exodus 12:38) Ahmose worships the Egyptian moon god Iah. Amorite Babylonian king Samsu-ditana 1625-1595 B.C. worshipped the moon god Sin.

Amorite 400 years of power 1895-1495 B.C. (Genesis 15:13-16) Amorite Babylonian kings reigned for 300 years 1895-1595 B.C. Lets view the last 100 years 1595-1495 B.C. next.

Where Babylon, the Bible and Egypt History are tied Together
by: John part one

Egyptian king Pepi II 2007-1913 B.C. had trade with Abraham's UR 2025-1917 B.C. while Abraham lived 1992-1817 B.C. Abraham and his family left UR for Haran in 1925 B.C., some 430 years before the Exodus. (Genesis 11:31)

Abraham left Haran and lived in Egypt 1917-1916 B.C., for Abraham lived in Canaan 10 years and Ishmael was born in Canaan when Abraham was 86 years old in 1906 B.C. (Genesis 16:3 & 16:16)

Abraham slew the Babylon/Shinar king Amraphel &
the Elamite king Kindattu/Chedorlaomer (Genesis 14:1; 17) in 1911 B.C. Kindattu had destroyed Abraham's hometown of UR. Amorite/Babylon king Sumu-abum 1895-1881 B.C. repulsed the Kishites whom had tried to take over his city.

Egyptian king Mentuhotep II 1913-1862 B.C. is fighting in an Egyptian civil war which ends in 1874 B.C. Terrible drought had struck Egypt and the Middle-East. Mentuhotep II had wells dug along important trade routes. The Egyptian Hagar found a well, and Abraham had a dispute over a well. (Genesis 21:17-19 & Genesis 21:25)

Sodom & Gomorrah were destroyed in 1893 B.C., one year before Isaac was born in 1892 B.C. Archaeologist had uncovered Pepi II artifacts at Byblos which had been destroyed in an earthquake in the same year Sodom was destroyed.

Egyptian king Mentuhotep II drove the Amorites out of Egypt in 1874 B.C. Babylon's new king Amorite king Sumulael 1880-1845 B.C. destroys the city of Kish and completes the building of the wall around Babylon. Mentuhotep III 1862-1850 B.C. reopens the trade route to Punt.

Egyptian Goddesses
by: Anonymous

Amazing, the Bee goddess Neith is linked to queen Neith in Egyptian king Pepi II's reign, when Pepi II's wife was named Neith and Abraham visited Egypt during the reign of Pepi II. Interestingly, Abraham would have lived at UR when Amar, otherwise called Bur-Sin, had built a House of Honey.

Hathor cow worship is prevalent in queen Hatshepsut's lifetime, and the link where Hebrews are worshiping the golden calf in the wilderness almost a generation later is fascinating.

May I add this. Princess Sit-Hathor-Yunet worshiped the Vulture goddess Nekhbet. What is the connection? There was a global famine in Genesis 41:57 when Joseph reigned as governor of Egypt, Genesis 41:41-43, under Senusret III reign who was Sit-Hathor-Yunet's brother.

Egyptian false goddesses may indeed be the link to real Egyptian chronology. One cannot trust Egyptian priest Manetho's account of Egyptian history. Manetho added names to non-existent made up dynasties to expand Egyptian history in order to impress the Greeks, whom ruled Egypt in his lifetime.

Goddess Neith and Goddess Hathor
by: Tom

The Egyptian goddess Neith and the Egyptian goddess Hathor may hold the key to unlock real Egyptian chronology.

Neith is the Bee goddess. Egyptian king Pepi II queen was named Neith. Pepi II poured honey over his naked female and male slaves to keep the flies off him. Pepi II had trade with Abraham's UR. Egyptian grain was traded for UR's honey and silver.

Amar/Bur Sin built the House of Honey at Abraham's UR. Abraham left UR before UR's king Ibi-Sin fell from power as the Elamite king Kindattu/Chedorlaomer forces won victory. Abraham slew Elamite king Chedorlaomer. (Genesis 14:17)

Abraham visited Egypt in Pepi II's reign BEFORE
Abraham slew Elamite king Chedorlaomer who had destroyed his hometown of UR. Abraham left Egypt with silver Pepi II had acquired from UR. (Genesis 13:1-2)

Moses was born in Egypt when princess Hatshepsut had saved him when he was an infant. Hatshspsut worshipped the cow goddess Hathor. When the Hebrews were in the wilderness they worshipped the golden calf. (Exodus 32:24)

The time from near the end of Pepi II's reign to the end of Exodus pharoah Thutmose III's reign should equal 430 years.

The Bee honey connection between Egypt and UR and the worship of the cow goddess and golden calf links indicate Bible chronology is more accurate than pagan Egyptian chronology.

Egyptian First and Second Intermediate Periods
by: James

The Sakkara Egyptian king list omits Egyptian 7,8,9,10th and part of Egypt's 11th dynasty. There are NO Egyptian monuments dedicated for these kings. Egyptian scribes INVENTED these dynasties to hide the fact after Pepi II died, Egypt suffered a bloody civil war during a drought where many Egyptians perished.

Thebean Egyptian king Mentuhotep II arose to power shortly after Pepi II had died. Mentuhotep II's temple and monuments were found. Mentuhotep II united Egypt in his 39th year and drove the Amorite Canaanites out of Egypt's delta. The first Egyptian intermediate dynasty was a hoax.

The Abydos Egyptian kings list omits Egyptian dynasties 13,14,15,16 and 17. There are no Egyptian monuments dedicated for these kings. Egyptian scribes INVENTED these dynasties to hide the fact after Amenemhet IV died the next king is Ahmose who arrives on the throne at age 10.

Hyksos Canaanites entered Egypt during the reigns of 12th dynasty kings Senusret III, Amenemhet III, Amenemhet IV and queen Sobekneferu. Egyptian scribes are hiding the fact there was a bloody civil war which took place after Amenemhet III had died. Ahmose father Seqenenre Tao and brother Kamose brought down the Amenemhet/Senusret dynasty.

Hyksos/Canaanite administrator Apepi I was crowned king at Avaris, while Ahmose 10 years old was crowned king of Thebes.

Egyptian scribes wrote a child's tale about a hippo in Thebes waking up Apepi I causing the war between Avaris and Ahmose father and brother living at Thebes. Ahmose gets older and Ahmose fights Apepi II or Khamudi driving the Hyksos Canaanites out of Egypt.

Egyptian first and second intermediate periods are a hoax hiding two Egyptian civil wars. Interestingly, the Thebean kings in BOTH instances also drove the Canaanites out of Egypt's delta.

The 521 Years from Exodus to Rehoboam's 5th Year
by: Roger

I find the information drawing out the Egyptian kings and queen equalling 521 years fascinating.

These 521 years, some 520 of those years, the Israelites were protected UNTIL the first Libyan pharoah of Egypt, Shishak, reigned; and he attacked Jerusalem.

Perhaps the Egyptian kings were afraid of the Israelites. We know the Egyptians hated shepherds (Genesis 46:34). Perhaps the Egyptians also feared the Israelites.

Why fear Israel? Israel's God sent 10 plagues against Egypt, and in Joshua's day the sun stood still in the sky for almost 24 hours. (Exodus 8-12 & Joshua 10:12-14)

Fear of Israel might explain pharoah Merneptah I saying, "Israel destroyed her seed not." Merneptah I might actually be telling us the destruction of Israel caused by Jabin the Canaanite. (Judges 4:2-3)

Merneptah I took no action against Israel. All during the Israeli history in the Book of Judges Egypt could have united with Israel's enemies but Egypt did not.

God protected His people. Libyan pharoah Shishak
waited five years after king Solomon had died to attack Israel. God had promised Solomon a peaceful reign. God had kept His word.

Its refreshing to see support God's word, when Replacement Theologist mock Jewish history and our Bible.

These are the times Bible prophecy is on the horizon and the ancient Jewish prophets have detailed current events to happen in our life time. How dumb the Replacement Theologist are to doubt God's word in the voice of his prophets.

Queens Nitocris, Sobekneferu, Hatshepsut and Tausert
by: Jim

Its interesting queen Nitocris, Pepi II's daughter, lived in Egypt when Abraham visited. Sobekneferu was a princess when Joseph lived in Egypt, princess Hatshepsut is the one who saved infant Moses, and Tausert had an affair with her Syrian butler Bay, when Judge Gideon defeated the children of the east--(the Syrians) in Judges 6:3.

Queens: Nitocris, Sobekneferu, Tausert & Cleopatra
by: June

Egyptian scribes try to show their queens causing the downfall of the 6th dynasty when Nitocris reigned,the 12th dyansty when Sobekneferu reigned,the 19 dynasty when Tausert reigned and the Greek period when Cleopatra reigned.

What about the kings who brought down Egyptian dynasties? The scribes are basically silent, proving they were biased against their queens and you can't believe how real the stories they tell are. The scribes even blotted queen Hatshepsut's name from Egyptian history because Thutmose III ordered them to do so.

King Horemheb struck Akenaton, Semenkhare, Tutankhamen and Ay's name from all Egyptian records, so how can Egyptian history be reliable?

Thutmose I Mummy
by: Jim

I agree Thutmose I must have been an old man, so archaeologists are looking for an old mummy; BUT
Thutmose III's body was washed up upon the Red Sea shore. (Exodus 14:30)

Egyptian Chronology is Unreliable and more facts are being discovered each day, revealing Egyptian priest Manetho's account of Egyptian history to be highly fraudulent.

500-521 years SHISHAK! (1 Kings 14:25)

SHISHAK died year 521 after the Exodus shortly after he attacked Jerusalem.

Solomon's 4th year 480 years after the Exodus. (1 Kings 6:1) Solomon reigns 36 more years. (1 Kings 11:42)= 516 years plus Rehohoboam's 5th year = 521 year SHISHAK attacked Jerusalem.

The 430 years from Abraham leaving UR to the Exodus
by: Anonymous

Biblical: Abraham is 67 years old when his older brother Haran dies and Abraham's family leaves UR, living in the city of Haran for 8 years.

Abraham lives 108 more years after leaving UR; Abraham dies at age 175.(Genesis 25:7) Isaac born when Abraham is 100 years old. Isaac dies 105 years after Abraham died. Isaac died at age 180. (Genesis 35:28) 108 + 105 = 213 years pass.

Esau and Jacob are born when Isaac is 60 years old. Jacob dies at age 147 (Genesis 47:28), some 27 years after Isaac dies. 213 + 27 = 240 years.

Joseph is born when Jacob is 91 years old. Joseph outlives Jacob by 54 years. 54 + 240 = 294 years. From Joseph's death at age 110. (Genesis 50:26)

From Joseph's death to Moses birth = 56 years.
294 + 56 = 350 years.

Moses was 80 years old at the time of the Exodus.
350 years + 80 = 430 years.

The Egyptian 430 years: Pepi II was 88 years old when Abraham left UR. Pepi II died 12 years later at age 100.

Pepi II 12 years.
Mentuhotep II 51 years.
Mentuhotep III 12 years
Mentuhotep IV 7 years = 82 years. (Sakkara kings list shows the king after Pepi II was Mentuhotep II)

Amenemhet I 30 years. Senusret I 36 years. Amenemhet II 34 years. Senusret II 19 years. Senusret III 39 years Amenemhet III 45 years. Amenemhet IV 9 years and queen Sobekneferu 3 years = 215 years.

(Abydos kings list states the next king after Amenemhet IV is Ahmose)

Ahmose 25 years. Amenhotep I 21 years. House of Thutmose I-II = 87 years = 133 years.

82 + 215 + 133 years = 430 years.

The Canaanite/Hyksos (Genesis 47:13-17) traded their horses for bread in the reign of Egyptian kings Senusret III (Genesis 41:38-44) Amenemhet III and Amenemhet IV reigned over Egypt at the time Joseph from Canaan was an Egyptian governor.

Horse skeleton found at Senusret III fortress at Buhen Nubia proves there were horses in Egypt at this time in their history.

Thutmose I Mummy
by: Anonymous

Dr. Zahi Hawass stated in 2007 Thutmose I mummy has not been found. The mummy thought to be Thutmose I was a thirty year old mummy, a man who died from an arrow wound in the chest. Thutmose I was an old man when he died according to Egyptian

Thutmose I actually had a 54 year reign and Thutmose III reigned without Hatshepsut for 33 years. Thutmose I was the slayer of Hebrew male babies. (Exodus 1:15-16) Hatshepsut was a princess when she saved infant Moses. (Exodus 2:5-10) Hatshepsut ruled as queen for the sickly Thutmose II while Thutmose I was still alive. Hatshepsut ruled in place of the senile Thutmose I in his later years. As Moses escaped Egypt, it was Thutmose I and his administrators who wanted the adult Moses killed after he slew an Egyptian.
Hatshepsut was powerful in Thutmose I last 22 years of reign but could not counter Thutmose I order to have Moses killed.

Archaeologist should be looking for a very old Egyptian Thutmose I mummy. Princess Hatshepsut was around 15 years old when she found Moses, and Moses was 40 when he fled Egypt; and Thutmose I likely was around 20 years old when Hatshepsut was born, so archaeologists are looking for a 75 year old mummy.

Thutmose I dies a few months after Moses flees Egypt BUT Moses had to fear Egyptian officials who wanted him dead.

Thutmose III had grown up with Moses. Thutmose III late in his reign, when receiving God's 10 plagues, cursed Hatshepsut for saving Moses' life. Thutmose III destroyed all of Hatshepsut's statues and tried erasing her name from Egyptian history, like pharoah Ahmose had erased Joseph's name from Egyptian history; so Thutmose I arose to power and knew not Joseph. (Exodus 1:8)

Thutmose III could conquer western Asia, yet he lost his best soldiers and his life in the Red Sea. This maybe the reason his mummy has not been found.

Where Egyptian Chronology is Reliable
by: David

There are 521 years from the Exodus to Rehoboam's 5th year. (1 Kings 14:25)

King Solomon's 4th year was 480 years after the Exodus. (1 Kings 6:1) Solomon reigns for 36 more years = 516 years. (Solomon's 40 year reign. 1 Kings 11:42)

Rehoboam's 5th year = 521 years when Egyptian king Shishak invades. Shishak dies the 521st year shortly after his attack on Jerusalem.

Egyptian king list where kings reign solo years. Amenhotep II listed 26 years
Amenhotep II reigned 24 years solo.
How does Shishak compute to the 521st year?

0-24 years Amenhotep II
24-33 Thutmose IV
33-71 Amenhotep III
71-88 Akenaton
88-89 Semenkare
89-99 Tutankhamen
99-103 Ay
103-134 Horemheb
134-135 Ramses I
135-148 Seti I
148-215 Ramses II
215-227 Merneptah I
227-232 Amenmesses
232-237 Seti II
237-244 Merneptah II
244-246 queen Tausert
246-248 Irsu

250-282 Ramses III
282-288 Ramses IV
288-292 Ramses V
292-302 Ramses VI
302-303 Ramses VII
303-310 Ramses VIII
310-329 Ramses IX
329-338 Ramses X
338-365 Ramses XI
365-392 Smendes
392-396 Neferkhres
396-446 Psusennes I
446-455 Amenmope
455-461 Osokhor
461-481 Siamon whose daughter marries king Solomon
481-500 Psusennes II
500-521 years SHISHAK!

From Amenhotep II beginning reign to Shishak's end we have a perfect match of 521 years! Egyptian and Bible chronology match!

The pharoah before Amenhotep II according to the numbers is Thutmose III the Exodus pharoah.

Thutmose III's aunt was queen Hatshepsut, the princess who saved infant Moses. (Exodus 2:5-10) This means Hatshepsut's father Thutmose I was the slayer of Hebrew male babies. (Exodus 1:15-16)

Thutmose I and Hatshepsut held the power in Egypt. Thutmose II was too sickly to reign.

Egyptians, Canaanites and Joseph
by: John

Joseph from Canaan served an Egyptian king. (Genesis 41:38-44) The king was Senusret III. Joseph lived through the reigns of Senusret III, Amenemhet III and Amenemhet IV their 93 years of reign. Joseph entered Egypt at age 17, died 110 years old living in Egypt for 93 years. Joseph entered Egypt the first year of Senusret III's reign. (Genesis 37:2 & Genesis 50:26)

Hyksos Canaanites came to Egypt when Joseph reigned as governor. (Genesis 47:13-17) The Canaanites traded their horses for bread.

Hyksos Canaanites at Avaris were administrators not kings. The Hyksos administrators Sheshi, Yakubher, Khyan, Apepi I served Joseph.

Joseph witnessed the third Hebrew generation being born in Egypt. (Genesis 50:23) Moses was the fourth generation. Only 56 years transpire between Joseph's death and Moses birth.

The 430 years of oppression are from when Abraham and his family leaves Ur after Haran dies until the Exodus. From Joseph's entry into Egypt until the Exodus 229 years pass. From Jacob's entry into Egypt until the Exodus 207 years pass.

Senusret III stopped Nubian immigration into Egypt, while permitting the Canaanites to live in Egypt.

Joseph and Amenemhet IV died the same year. Joseph died. Egypt experiences civil war. Amenemhet IV is killed by the Thebean Nubian
Seqenenre Tao. Its the Nubians whom actually bring down the Amenemhet/Senusret dynasty. Ahmose father, Seqenenre Tao is killed in this rebellion.

Ahmose brother Kamose reign of three years coincides with queen Sobeknefru three years. Both are killed. Hyksos Canaanite Apepi I wins victory over Thebes when Ahmose is 10 years old.

Ahmose with Nubian warriors fight Hyksos Canaanite king Apepi II or Khamadi and Ahmose drives the Hyksos out of Egypt in the first Exodus. The Hebrews leave Egypt in the second Exodus.

True Egyptian history actually matches the events recorded in our Bible. Egyptian chronology however with the Manetho dynasty setup is so highly flawed.

The Egyptian Nubian Connection
by: Anonymous

Ham had four sons: CUSH, MIZRAIM (Egypt), Phut (Libya)and Canaan. (Genesis 10:6)

Egyptian king Pepi I invaded Cush (Nubia). The Nubians at this time had divided themselves into five major tribes. Pepi I received from five Nubian cheiftains some 50,000 Cushite troops to fight the Amorites in Canaan. The Egyptian city of Elephantine had their first Nubian major when Pepi I reigned.

Egyptian king Pepi II used Nubian mercenaries to fight the Libyans and Canaanites. The Nubians married Egyptian women and lived south of Thebes.

The Memphis dynasty falls and Mentuhotep II of Thebes declares independence. Mentuhotep II uses Nubian mercenaries to reunite Egypt and fight the Canaanites. Mentuhotep II incorporates Lower Nubia into Egypt.

Amenemhet I slays Mentuhotep IV. The Nubians revolt. Amenemhet I moves the Egyptian capital from Thebes to Itj-tawy and reconquers Nubia. Senusret I builds forts in Lower Nubia.

Amenemhet II and Senusret II reigns Nubians migrate into Egypt. Senusret III restricts Nubian migration. Senusret III lets Canaanite Hyksos live in Egypt.(Joseph reigns as Egyptian governor)

Thebean Ahmose uses Nubian troops to drive out the Canaanite Hyksos. Thutmose I defeats the Nubians and annexes part of Lower Nubia.

(Thutmose I is the slayer of male Hebrew babies. Thutmose I fears the Canaanite Hyksos will return to Egypt. The Hebrews originally from Canaan, he considers are Egyptian enemies whom must be eliminated for Egypt to survive. Thutmose I daughter princess Hatshepsut saves Moses life.)

The Egyptians and the Nubians are two different people's. I hope this helps to clear up the confusion.

Egyptian History is Poorly Documented
by: Anonymous

If Egyptian history is so well documented, why is the Egyptian 7-10 and part of the 11th so called dynasties a mere list of kings' names with no history to back them up?

If Egyptian history is so well documented why do the Egyptians state a hippo's roar in Thebes some 500 miles from Avaris started the Hyksos Egyptian war? This is a child's tale.

If Egyptian history is so well documented why are queen Hatshepsut, Akenaton, Semenkare, Tut and Ay's name struck from Egyptian records?

If Egyptian history is so well documented why is the Syrian invasion of Egypt kept out of Egyptian records? Judges 6:3-6 reveals the children of the East (which would be Syrians) came against Israel.

Egyptian history reflecting the same time frame only states Egyptian queen Tausert had an affair with her Syrian butler Bay. Only recently have modern Egyptian historians referred to Irsu as a Syrian tyrant reigning over Egypt, destroying Egyptian gods after Tausert fell from power.

Egyptian Chronology
by: Louis (London)

India is not located in Africa but in Asia. If the Dravidians were living in Asia and the South Pacific, then classifying people as "Asiatics"in terms of race cannot hold.

Again, it was about location of families and not race. Ham and Shem lived together in Chaldea/Sumer/Ur where Abraham has origins. When he moved to Canaan, the Hamites were already there also. It follows that it still boils down to location and worship since the Israelite nation, from Shem, was formed in the land of Ham.

By race, these people were physically indistinguishable from the Egyptians. Biblical evidence shows that this was the case.

God did tell Isaac not to enter Egypt. (Genesis 26:2)

There were three branches of the human race: Japheth, Ham and Shem; Noah's three sons. (Genesis 10:1)

Japheth was father of the Europeans, Ham the Africans, the Dravidians of India and in the islands of the Pacific; and Shem the Semitic people's living in western Asia.

Nubian Pottery Sheds Light on Real Egyptian History
by: Anonymous

Pepi II used Nubian mercenaries representing the Kerma class C culture. The Memphis dynasty falls at the time of Egyptian king Pepi II's death.

Sakkara Egyptian kings list lists Thebean Mentuhotep II coming to power in Egypt after Pepi II dies. Mentuhotep II uses Nubian mercenaries to reunite Egypt by his 39th year. Mentuhotep II's queen Kawit is Nubian in origin. Mentuhotep II uses Nubian mercenaries to reunite Egypt and defeat the Amorites in Canaan.

Amenemhet I slew Thebean Mentuhotep IV. Amenemhet
I annexes part of Nubia. Senusret I builds forts in Lower Nubia where the Kerma class C culture flourishes. In Amenemhet II and Senusret II's reign the Kerma Nubians are still allowed to migrate into Egypt. Senusret III restricts all Kerma Nubian migration into Egypt. Senusret III allows Hyksos Canaanite migration into Egypt.

Abydos Egyptian kings list lists the next king to reign after Amenemhet IV is Ahmose. The five so-called Hyksos Canaanite kings lived in the reigns of Senusret III, Amenemhet III, Amenemhet IV, queen Sobekneferu and Ahmose. (Joseph lived in Senusret III, Amenemhet III and Amenemhet IV reigns) Kerma C pottery is absent until Ahmose family appears on the battlefield.

Kerma C pottery appears with artifacts found with Ahmose father and brother. Thebean Ahmose queen was Nubian.

Thebes and Nubian history is connected. How is Egyptian history really played out? Thebean Mentuhotep IV is slain by Amenemhet I and Thebean Ahmose's family had slain Amenemhet IV over 200 years later.

Egyptian Chronology is Unreliable
by: Louis (London)

Nobody expects the Egyptian history to be 100 percent correct. No history written by man is that accurate. Consequently, to downplay the effect of Egypt on the Bible on this basis is unsustainable. Ancient Israel had always had family and historical ties with Egypt and Africa from the time of Abraham to this very day. This is well documented in the Bible by Isaiah, Zephaniah and Moses in his first five Books that constitute the Bible from Genesis.

In the ancient times, people were not looked upon in racial terms nor were there any peoples referred to as the “Asiatics”. Canaan and the rest of the so-called Middle East were not considered to be “Asiatics” since the first civilisation in that area was established by the Kushites. It should be noted that the Sons of Ham and Shem shared that part of the world at the time. As a result, it would not be correct to refer to them as “Asiatics”.

If an Egyptian King “slit the throats” of people, it merely means that he was cruel and not necessarily that those persecuted were “Asiatics” who were almost certainly indistinguishable from the average Egyptian at the time. Differences in that part of the ancient world were merely geographical and spiritual, and not racial. Isaac worshipped the true God but the Egyptians didn’t. The Bible does not say why he should not enter Egypt. The most likely reason were differences in worship as the Israelites had not yet been brought to existence by God.

The Egyptians knew of the Living God but chose to follow their own gods. It is inconceivable that they never knew the living God with God’s people dwelling amongst them for very many centuries and the earliest of times.

Finally, the Egyptian history is well documented in their great monuments and artifacts they left behind.

Common Events Equal Real History
by: June

(1) First builders at Babel. First Egyptian builders at Step Pyramid.
(2) Abraham witnesses the plagues to strike Egypt. Egyptian king Pepi II encountered plagues before his dynasty fell.
(3) Abraham and Hagar lived in a drought stricken region. Thebean king Mentuhotep II helped Egyptians in the various nomes with food supplies because they were experincing drought
(4) God warned Isaac not to enter Egypt likely because he would be killed. Egyptian king Senusret I hated Asiatics. Senusret I would slit their throats.
(5) God terrorized the cities around Shechem. Senusret III skirmished with the Canaanites living around Shechem. Senusret III annexed Canaan and Joseph as governor was in charge of the economies of both Egypt and Canaan.
(6) A pharaoh arose who knew not Joseph. Egyptian king Ahmose hated foreigners and destroyed all references to Joseph in Egyptian history. (7) Thutmose I was the slayer of Hebrew male babies. Thutmose I daughter Hatshepsut saved Moses life.
Later part of Thutmose I reign, Hatshepsut was the real power behind the throne. Thutmose II was too sickly. Moses escaped from Thutmose I most likely with Hatshepsut's help.
(8) Thutmose III who was skilled at conquering the Middle-East lost his life and best soldiers in the Red Sea. Amenhotep II faced two rebellions in Asia because Egypt had been weakened. (9) Amenhotep III's sun god status he embraced when the sun stood still in the sky for almost 24 hours; when Joshua went to war against the Amorites.
(10) Akenaton's monotheism came after Moses and Joshua had died. Akenaton believed Joshua had power over the sun. Akenaton believed he could obtain power over the sun. Akenaton did not realize Joshua's god was the Lord over all creation, not just the sun. Akenaton's poetry resembles Psalms 104.

There are too many similarities to be ignored yet are ignored as the world is more concerned over the output of oil and selling out Israel as the world appeases Moslem terrorist states.

Its a crime modern historians are guilty of, knowing Egyptian chronology is fraudulent, yet still using Manetho's false account of Egyptian history.

Dawn of Civilizations - Genesis
by: Jason

Egyptian historians know Egyptian chronology is not accurate, yet reject the Bible's outline of historical events to correct this situation.

Modern man simply is not interested in discovering the fact that the Bible bears the truth about humanity in the Dawn of Civilizations.
