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.

The Truth?
by: Robbie

Egyptians really messed up the histories after Pepi II's reign to Mentuhotep II's reign, and Amenemhet IV's reign to Ahmose's reign.

We can only guess how to fill in the missing blanks. Perhaps at Knossos we might find the truth, or perhaps at Kabri, we cannot say for sure.

We can say the truth is buried in the sands of the Middle-East, and one day the truth may surface to light since Egyptian historian priest Manetho did not tell us the truth.

The Egyptian 13 -17th Dynasty Kings List
by: Walter

Egyptian king Senusret III destroyed the power of the nomarch's (governors)except for Joseph who was the second most powerful person in Egypt.

When the Egyptians sold their land (Genesis 47:20-21)and moved to the cities wouldn't the Egyptians in the cities need mayors to govern them?

The so called kings listed in the 13-17 dynasties may have been mayors over Egyptian towns not kings. The mayors would be issued scarabs like Egyptian kings. Finding these scarabs throughout nations in the Middle-East does not necessarily mean the 13-17th dynasty listed names were kings.

These 13-17th names on some Egyptian kings list
may have been mayors whom served the 12th dynasty and their scarabs were used in trade transactions.

The 13 through the early part of the 17th dynasty
12th dynasty pottery was still being used indicating when Amenemhet IV died the next king to reign over Egypt was Ahmose like the Abydos Egyptian king list listed.

Was Thutmose III the Exodus Pharaoh? (part 2)
by: Jason

Siamon 1034-1014 B.C.
Psusennes II 1014-995 B.C. & Shishak 995-974 B.C. who dies a few months after attacking Jerusalem in Rehoboam's 5th year. (1 Kings 14:25)

Look at Judah's king chart. Scroll downward a few posts.

Note all Egyptian king reigns were written in solo years. Example Amenhotep II is listed at 26 years - yet 2 were co-regent with Thutmose III, so Amenhotep II reigned solo 24 years.

Thutmose III's solo years are from 1528-1495 B.C.
Thutmose III was indeed the Exodus pharoah.

We can only date artifacts properly if the history is properly correlated.

More Archaeologist are saying the island of Thera blew up in 1500 B.C. This event caused a darkness which could be felt. (Exodus 10:21-22) Thera actually blew up in 1495 B.C., the Exodus year.

Minoan culture in Egypt, and perhaps Crete, ceases in 1495 B.C. as the Mycenaean culture begins to be transplanted throughout the Mediterranean islands.

Was Thutmose III the Exodus king in 1495 B.C.?
by: Jason

There were 521 years from the Exodus until Rehoboam's 5th year, when Shishak invaded Egypt
(1 Kings 14:25).

Solomon's 4th year at 480 years + 36 more Solomon years + 5 Rehoboam's years = 521 years.

Shishak died a few months later in the 974 B.C. year.

Thutmose III died in 1495 B.C.

Amenhotep II 1495-1471 B.C.
Thutmose IV 1471-1462 B.C.
Amenehotep III 1462-1424 B.C. (Joshua destroys Jericho in 1455 B.C.)

Hebrew Chronology
by: Jason

Was Moses Exodus in 1495 B.C.? Solomon's Temple was destroyed in 586 B.C.
Solomon's real reign must have been 1019-979 B.C. (1 Kings 11:42) & (1 Kings 6:1) 4th year is 1015 B.C. + 480 = 1495 B.C.

Rehoboam 979-962 B.C.(1 K 14:21)
Abijam 962-959 B.C.(1 K 15:2)
Asa 959-918 B.C.(1 K 15:10)
Jehoshaphat 918-893 B.C. (1 K 22:42)
Jehoram 893-885 B.C.(2 K 8:17)
Ahaziah 885-884 B.C. (2 K 8:26)
Athaliah 884-878 B.C.(2 Kings 11:1-3)
Jehoash 878-838 B.C.(2 K 12:1)
Amaziah 838-809 B.C. (2 K 14:2)
Uzziah 809-757 B.C.(2 Kings 15:2)

Jotham 757-741 B.C. (2 K 15:33)
Ahaz 741-725 B.C. (2 K 16:2)
Hezekiah 725-696 B.C.(2 K 18:2)
Manasseh 696-641 B.C.(2 K 21:1)
Amon 641-639 B.C. (2 K 21:19)
Josiah 639-608 B.C. (2 K 22:1)
Jehoahaz 608 B.C (2 K 23:31)
Jehoiakim 608-597 B.C. (2 K 23:36)
Jehoichin 597 B.C. (2 K 24:8) & Zedekiah 597-586 B.C. (2 Kings 24:18)

Bible chronology matches the 1495 B.C. Exodus date and most historians state Solomon's temple was destroyed in 586 B.C.

Moses therefore lived 1575-1455 B.C.

Moses was 80 when the Exodus occurred.

Joshua destroyed Jericho in 1455 B.C.

Did the Egyptian Scribes Switch Records?
by: Walter

Both Thutmose I and Thutmose III's armies made it to the Euphrates river. Both pharoahs oppressed the Hebrews.

Thutmose III reign is listed as 54 years, being co-regent with queen Hatshepsut for 22 years.

Imagine Thutmose I having a 54 year history which was covered up, and Thutmose III had a 33 year history after Thutmose I died.

Thutmose I 1582-1528 B.C.
Thutmose III 1528-1495 B.C.
Moses 1575-1455 B.C. flees Thutmose I the male Hebrew baby slayer in 1535 B.C. at age 40.

This meant queen Hatshepsut reigned with her father when Moses escaped to Midian; and Hatshepsut saved Moses life twice. Once as an infant and once as an adult.

Moses then lead his people from Egypt when Thutmose III was king - Thutmose II had no power. He was sickly. Queen Hatshepsut would take over his power when she wore a beard for 7 years denying he existed.

Correct Bible Chronology - Exodus 12:40
by: Jimmy

The 430 years must be according to math from the time Abraham's older brother died in 1925 B.C. to 1495 B.C. the Exodus date.

Abraham reign 1992-1817 B.C.
Isaac 1892-1712 B.C.
Jacob 1832-1685 B.C.
Joseph 1741-1631 B.C. and Moses 1575-1455 B.C. The Exodus is when Moses is 80 in 1495 B.C.

Jacob entered Egypt at age 130 in 1702 B.C.

Levi, Moses great-grandfather, lived 6 years in Haran, 39 years in Canaan, and 92 years in Egypt.

Kohath, Moses grandfather, lived 12 years in Canaan and 121 years in Egypt.

Kohath, Moses father, lived all 137 years in Egypt.

Moses was 80 years old at the time of the Exodus.

Levi 1747-1610 B.C.
Kohath 1714-1581 B.C.
Amram 1684-1547 B.C.
Moses 1575-1455 B.C.

Levi 92 years + Kohath 121 years + Amram's 137 years + Moses 80 years at Exodus = 430 accumulated years, not actual years.

Genesis 15:13-16 400 years = 1895-1495 B.C.
