Egyptian Chronology vs. Biblical Chronology
by Lujack Skylark
Why does Egyptian history begin with legendary Menes in 3400 B.C., when mankind left the Tower of Babel in 2243 B.C. to build nations?
Egyptians left Babel for Egypt. The 1st Egyptian king to build a pyramid when the Egyptians settled in Egypt was Djoser, some 800 years after Menes. Seems strange. The Egyptians just built a Tower, and the Egyptians would not build their stair way to heaven, the Step Pyramid, until some 800 years after Menes?
The reason Egyptian chronology and Biblical chronology don't match is there are many names listed by Egyptian historian priest Manetho before the 18th dynasty whom are phony kings which never existed.
Take away the phony kings and we can match Egyptian history with our Bible.
The Sakkara kings list reveals, after Pepi II's reign, the next king is Mentuhotep II. This means Egypt's 7-10 and part of the 11th dynasty was phony. The Abydos kings list reveals after Amenemhet IV the next king is Ahmose. This means the 13-17 dynasties were phony. Ahmose would be the reason for Amenemhet IV's downfall. Mystery solved.
Ahmose son, Amen-hotep, was named for AMENemhet of Egypt's 12th dynasty and Mentu-HOTEP of Egypt's 11th dynasty. The two previous dynasties.
The Amorite/Canaanite Hyksos entered Egypt during Senusret III's, reign and left Egypt when Ahmose won the Egyptian civil war some 5 years before he died.
The Egyptian race does not go back some 5,000 years; the Egyptians were at the Tower of Babel; like all mankind, before mankind scattered across the earth.
