Ancient Egyptian Text and the Red Sea (Yam Suf) Crossing by Israel!
by: Anonymous

In this text two Egyptian “gods” do battle at the bottom of the sea! And the god Horus who represents Egypt, loses the battle while Seth, who represents the foreigners, escapes. But what is of more interest is that it takes place right in front of the four place names of Exodus 14:2, which the Bible gives for the location of the Red Sea crossing by Moses!

The True Story of Amenemope Proverbs and Ikhnaton.
by: Ronald Duane Cochran

4. The Teachings of Amenemope

(1046.2) 95:4.1 In due time there grew up in Egypt a teacher called by many the ?son of man? and by others Amenemope. This seer exalted conscience to its highest pinnacle of arbitrament between right and wrong, taught punishment for sin, and proclaimed salvation through calling upon the solar deity.

(1046.3) 95:4.2 Amenemope taught that riches and fortune were the gift of God, and this concept thoroughly colored the later appearing Hebrew philosophy. This noble teacher believed that God-consciousness was the determining factor in all conduct; that every moment should be lived in the realization of the presence of, and responsibility to, God. The teachings of this sage were subsequently translated into Hebrew and became the sacred book of that people long before the Old Testament was reduced to writing. The chief preachment of this good man had to do with instructing his son in uprightness and honesty in governmental positions of trust, and these noble sentiments of long ago would do honor to any modern statesman.

(1046.4) 95:4.3 This wise man of the Nile taught that ?riches take themselves wings and fly away? ? that all things earthly are evanescent. His great prayer was to be ?saved from fear.? He exhorted all to turn away from ?the words of men? to ?the acts of God.? In substance he taught: Man proposes but God disposes. His teachings, translated into Hebrew, determined the philosophy of the Old Testament Book of Proverbs. Translated into Greek, they gave color to all subsequent Hellenic religious philosophy. The later Alexandrian philosopher, Philo, possessed a copy of the Book of Wisdom.

(1046.5) 95:4.4 Amenemope functioned to conserve the ethics of evolution and the morals of revelation and in his writings passed them on both to the Hebrews and to the Greeks. He was not the greatest of the religious teachers of this age, but he was the most influential in that he colored the subsequent thought of two vital links in the growth of Occidental civilization ? the Hebrews, among whom evolved the acme of Occidental religious faith, and the Greeks, who developed pure philosophic thought to its greatest European heights.

(1046.6) 95:4.5 In the Book of Hebrew Proverbs, chapters fifteen, seventeen, twenty, and chapter twenty-two, verse seventeen, to chapter twenty-four, verse twenty-two, are taken almost verbatim from Amenemope?s Book of Wisdom. The first psalm of the Hebrew Book of Psalms was written by Amenemope and is the heart of the teachings of Ikhnaton.

Queen Hatshepsut
by: REX

Queen Hatshepsut, some believe was the princess who saved baby Moses, and her father Thutmose I was the pharaoh who had Hebrew infants killed.

The pharaoh of the Exodus was Thutmose III, for Thutmose II was sickly and Hatshepsut ruled for him. Thutmose III had Hatshepsut's name chiseled off Egyptian monuments because she was the one who had saved Moses life.

Queen Hatshepsut worshiped the cow goddess Hathor. The Hebrews in the wilderness built the golden calf probably in honor of their most famous queen, within their same generation.

The 521 years
by: Anonymous

The 521 years is a short time period. Stanley 7, what is the difference in time since Egypt's and Israel's calenders are basically the same?

And if we go to the 365.25 calender-the .25 x 100 for every 100 years = 25 days difference and at 521 the days = a little more than 125 days difference.

Ancient dating system
by: Lujack Skylark

Egypt had a 360 day calender, plus they added five days at the end of each year. Jewish Moses calender was 360 days (Moses learned from the ways of the Egyptians), plus a 30 day leap month every six years.

Both calenders equaled 365 day years. In the Eighth century B.C. most nations using 360 day calenders changed their way of dating.

Since the research deals with history before the 8th century B.C. the number of years given in this history is accurate.

Egypt had a 360 day calender, plus five special days at the end of the year.

Jewish Moses calender is 360 days, plus a 30 day leap month every six years.

Both averaged a 365 day year. 8th century B.C. most nations using a 360 day calender changed their dating methods. I see nothing wrong with this research.

Answer for Stanley 7
by: Lujack Skylark

Are you saying Stanley 7 we cannot uncover the 521 years from the Exodus to Rehoboam's 5th year?

The reign of years for the Egyptian kings was converted to our measure of time.

You give us no word about who is the pharaoh of the Exodus.

Everyone seems to be wrong but you Stanley 7. You critize but cannot come up with all your knowledge- who was the pharaoh of the Exodus.
