History of Palestine
by Lujack Skylark
I find it interesting Egyptian king Senusret III invaded Palestine and entered the city of Shechem after Jacob left Shechem for Bethel. Genesis 36:5-6 God had terrorized the cities around Shechem so Jacob with his family could escape to Bethel. Senusret III invaded and annexed Canaan cause God had weakened the Canaanites. When Senusret III annexed Canaan, the Canaanite/Amorite/Hyksos would peacefully enter Egypt in Senusret III reign.
Egyptian scribes wrote the Hyksos/Canaanite warriors came into Egypt and ruined Egyptian temples, while our Bible states the pharaoh (Senusret III)acquired all the land of Egypt, except for the priest land-the Egyptian temples were safe. Genesis 47:22 Joseph traded Hyksos bread for horses. Genesis 47:13-17. Senusret III had horses for a horse skeleton was found at Buhen,Nubia (Sudan) dated to Senusret III's reign. Joseph lived 1741-1631 B.C. and Senusret III actual reign was 1724-1685 B.C. Date is lowered cause the 7-10 and part of the 11th Egyptian dynasties are phony according to the Sakkara kings list-so Senusret III's reign matches Biblical chronology.
2003-1913 B.C. Pepi II.Sakkara kings list reveals next king after Pepi II is Mentuhotep II
1913-1862 B.C. Mentuhotep II 1862-1850 B.C. Mentuhotep III 1850-1843 B.C. Menntuhotep IV 1843-1813 B.C. Amenemhet I 1813-1777 B.C. Senusret I 1777-1743 B.C. Amenemhet II 1743-1724 B.C. Senusret II & 1724-1685 B.C. Senusret III
Abraham 1992-1817 B.C. Isaac 1892-1712 B.C. Jacob 1832-1685 B.C. Joseph 1741-1631 B.C.
The Senusret III invasion into Palestine/Canaan should not be overlooked. It matches Joseph's family time around Shechem,Palestine/Canaan.
