Walking in Egyptian footsteps

by REX

Egyptians left the Tower of Babel on the plain of Sumer (Shinar) and settled in Africa, building the Step Pyramid in Mizraim/Djoser's reign.(Mizraim Genesis 10:6 & 10:13)The Step Pyramid and temple was Sumerian in design.

Real Egyptian history begins with the pyramid builders, who used their knowledge from building the Tower of Babel for designing the Step Pyramid.

Egyptian & Sumerian Connection ?
by: Rex

I read about those Celtic mummies in western China and found the article quite fascinating.

Many encyclopedia writers relating to Egypt's origin state there had to be a Sumerian/Egyptian connection at the earliest times.

Archaeologists state the Sakkara Egyptian temple near the Step Pyramid was Sumerian in design. The Step pyramid was square like most ziggurat (square) temples in Sumer. (Abraham's city of Ur)

Ancient Eyptian Pyramid Builders
by: Christopher

Rex you make some very interesting comments. I have for a long time suspected this. I would suggest anyone reading this comment should Google search the Tocharian mummies and the pyramids these people build in Western CHINA! (they can be found using Google Earth satellite images if you have the co-ordinates and its also on youtube)
These people were Celts from Europe, and were possibly the very first people in China before the 'Chinese'.

You said in your article:

"Egyptians left the Tower of Babel on the plain of Sumer (Shinar) and settled in Africa, building the Step Pyramid in Mizraim/Djoser's reign.(Mizraim Genesis 10:6 & 10:13) The Step Pyramid and temple was Sumerian in design. Real Egyptian history begins with the pyramid builders, who used their knowledge from building the Tower of Babel for designing the Step Pyramid."

I haven't checked out your reference to Genesis yet to confirm all the detail, but just a innocent query; Do you happen to have any non-Biblical evidence supporting these facts?

It would be a nice extra, just to backup the Bible verses. - ps. Too bad you still don't agree most modern Jews are not descended from the ancient Jews, but from Khazars and Edomites. Guess you need to do some more Google searching on this subject.

The further back you go in recent history the darker in skin tone the modern 'Jews' become and yet the Bible reveals the opposite of the ancient Jews.

Wealth of Egypt
by: Kevin

Abraham left Egypt with considerable amounts of cattle, gold and silver. (Genesis 13:1-2) Pharaoh Pepi II died a few years later and Egypt experienced civil war where the slaves were to dress in riches and the rich were dressed in rags as society was turned upside down. Abraham was blessed with wealth as Egypt declined.

Joseph reigned as governor over Egypt when a pharaoh (Senusret III) bought all Egyptian land except the priest's land. (Genesis 47:20-22) Egypt had prospered and been blessed with wealth when Joseph reigned.

Pharaoh Ahmose had been jealous of the Amenemhet and Senusret kings promising Egyptians land if they joined his army.

While Senusret III, Amenemhet III and Amenemhet IV welcomed foreigners into Egypt, Ahmose opposed foreigners. Ahmose family had caused a civil war soon after Joseph died. Prosperity ended during Ahmose reign.

Thutmose III reign Egypt was quite wealthy. The Hebrews like in Abraham's experience took great wealth out of Egypt. (Exodus 12:35-36)

Moral of the story. The Hebrew God will make you prosper!

The Horse's Arrival in Egypt
by: Anonymous

Walter Emery, working for the Egyptian Exploration Society, discovered at Buhen, Nubia a horse skeleton proving the horse arrived in Egypt pre-Hyksos.

The horse was dated to 12th dynasty Senusret III's reign.

The Bible states the Canaanites traded their horses for bread. (Genesis 47:15-17) The Canaanite Hyksos came to Egypt when Senusret III annexed Canaan in his 16th year of reign.

Horses were scarce in Egypt; horses were used in ceremonies not war in the 12th Egyptian dynasty.
(Genesis 41:43 & Genesis 50:9)

Horses were used to pull Joseph's chariot; and horses and chariots escorted Jacob's body to Canaan.

It seems like the so-called Hyksos kings were only mere chieftians. Sheshi, Yakubber, Khyan likely served under Senusret III and Amenemhet III.

Amenemhet III had trade contacts with Babylon and the island of Crete. Khyan artifacts are found at Babylon and the island of Crete.

Hyksos chieftian Apepi I would then serve near the end of Amenemhet III's reign, while Apepi II would be the chieftain who fights Ahmose.

The Canaanite Hyksos stayed in Egypt for about 97 years.

The Ancient Hebrews
by: Anonymous

Joseph lived in Egypt to see the third generation. (Genesis 50:23)

Wouldn't the three generations use the same design pottery for all three generations?

Archaeologist Janine Burriau found 12th dynasty bowls where the Hyksos and Hebrews lived in Egypt, along with only late 17 dynasty bowls created at the time of the Thebean wars.

Joseph lived in Egypt's 12th dynasty some 93 years of 12th dynasty pottery. Moses was born after the Thebean wars, when Thebean pottery became more the norm.

Joseph lived in Egypt's 12th dynasty where he saw the Hebrew's three generations through the reign of Egyptian kings Senusret III, Amenemhet III & Amenemhet IV; and Moses being born when the Thut-mose family reigned over Egypt. The 18th dynasty leaves no room for Egypt's 13,14,15,16 and part of the 17th dynasties to actually exist.

Psusennes II & Shishak I
by: Anonymous

Egyptian king Psusennes II 1014-995 B.C(Biblical Time)

He kept the Philistines in check. Sheshonq I, Biblical Shishak (1 Kings 14:25)995-974 B.C., attacks Jerusalem and dies a few months later.

Psusennes II harassed the Philistines during king Solomon's reign 1019-979 B.C., and Shishak invaded Israel in Rehoboam's 5th year 979-962 B.C. Rehoboam's 5th year = 974 B.C., some 521 years after the Exodus.

Exodus = 1495 B.C. Solomon's 4th year 1015 B.C. 480 years after the Exodus.

Solomon reigned 36 more years = 516 + Rehohoboam's 5th year = 521 years. (1 Kings 6:1)

Ramses VI
by: John

Ramses VI 1203-1193 B.C. (Biblical chronology)pulls the last Egyptian troops out of Asia.

Israel's judge Jair 1192-1170 B.C. (Biblical chronology)built 30 cities. (Judges 10:3-4)

Its interesting that the Israelites waited to build their cities after the Egyptians left Asia and Egypt was on the decline.

Sep 22, 2011
by: John

Pathru-sim (Genesis 10:14) developed Pathros (Ezekiel 29:14)territory in Upper Egypt. Sim =
tribe. The man's name was Path-ru, deified Ptah.

Imhotep's real father was Kanofer. Imhotep claims to be Ptah's son. Ptah was the chief god who created other gods. This indicates the Egyptian tribe Pathrusim was the first tribe reaching Africa from Sumer, creating Egypt's false gods.

Imhotep designed the Step Pyramid and temple at Sakkara in Sumerian fashion. Egyptian king Zoser started the Pyramid Age. Zoser's most likely is Egypt's first non-legendary king. King Snef-ru's father is likely Path-ru.

Imhotep's mother was Khredu-ankh. The ankh is a fertility symbol. The T cross is the symbol for Tammuz.(Tammuz Ezekiel 8:14)Tammuz is the deified Nimrod.

Enheduanna was Sargon/Nimrod's daughter. Enheduanna was the first moon priestess of UR and Annapadda was the first moon priest. She believed in Tammuz. Enhe-duan-na and Khre-duan-kh might be sisters.

Execration Texts in detail
by: Anonymous

Execration Texts were first manufactured during Egyptian king Senusret III's reign 1724-1685 B.C. (Biblical Time)

The Execration Texts occurred at the same time Senusret III had annexed Canaan. Some Egyptians placed curses on bowls breaking them in a ritual supposing to eliminate Egyptian internal and external enemies by cursing their enemies.

Some Egyptians were not pleased with giving up their land to Egyptian king Senusret III during the global famine.(Genesis 41:57)

Jacob had entered Egypt in 1702 B.C. Jacob received land in Egypt's delta because Egyptians thought shepherds were an abomination.(Genesis 46:34)

There were many Hyksos/Canaanites living in the
Egyptian delta cities, especially Avaris and Heliopolis, when Joseph was an Egyptian governor. More slaves as faraway as Babylon came to Egypt in Egyptian king Amenemhet III 1685-1640 B.C. reign. Amenehmet III uses them to complete Bahr Yosef (Joseph's canal).

Execration Texts were found by archaeologists as far away as Nubia. The bowls were either created by Egyptians living in Nubia, or by Nubians angered that Canaanite immigrants were allowed in Egypt during Senusret III's reign and Nubians were not allowed to enter Egypt.

The Thebean princes were no doubt angry to have lost their large land estates to Senusret III & not since Amenemhet I slaying of usurper Thebean Mentuhotep IV have Thebeans been more angry.

This might explain the reason Amenemhet IV disappeared from history. It was Ahmose Thebean family who actually put an end to the prosperous Amenemhet/Senusret dynasty. It was the Amenemhet & Senusret kings who were on the Canaanite side of this conflict.

Its a more realistic picture than a letter written from Hyksos/Canaanite chieftain Apepi to Thebean prince Seqenenre Tao to stop a hippo's roar some 500 miles away that was the beginning of the Canaanite and Thebean prince wars.

Senusret III had confiscated all Egyptian lands except for the priests lands.(Genesis 47:20-22)It was Thebean Ahmose who promised Egyptian soldiers land who sided with him during this war. It was Ahmose reversing Senusret III's policy. The Canaanite stay in Egypt was primarily 1702-1608 B.C. some 94 years.

The Tale of Wenamun was written in Ramses XI 1157-1130 B.C. last years. Wenamun was sent to Byblos to secure cedars of Lebanon to build the barque of Amun at Thebes. The travel route was unsafe and Wenamun was robbed on his way to Byblos.

In the past he would have been an honored visitor and the king of Egypt could have received all he required. Now the princes of Byblos demanded payment for the wood. This reflects the instability existing in Ramses XI reign.

Israel judge Jephthah 1153-1147 B.C.defeats Ammon some 300 years after the Hebrews had taken over Ammon's territory. (1453-1153 B.C.)

Joshua entered Jericho in 1455 B.C.)Abdon reigns over Israel 1147-1139 B.C. (Judges 11:26)

Philistines oppress Israel 1139-1099 B.C.
Samson is judge 1139-1119 B.C. for 20 years.(Judges 15:11& 15:31)
The Philistines had the Ark of the covenant for 20 years 1119-1099 B.C.
Saul becomes Israel's first king in 1099 B.C. (1 Samuel 7:2)

Egyptian king Smendes 1130-1103 B.C. civil war still raged in the Thebean area. Dissidents were exiled to the western oases, then controlled by Libyan chiefs.

A Child's Tale revisited
by: George

There is a letter written by Hyksos king Apepi I complaining to his Thebean counterpart that he was unable to sleep in Avaris because a roaring hippopotami 500 miles away at Thebes & suggested that Seqenenre do something about it.

Is this start of the Hyksos/Canaanite wars a child's tale? Do Egyptian historians believe this?

Seqenenre Tao body was actually discovered by archaeologists. Tao had been struck by an ax and he had other head wounds. No doubt there was a war, but the war was not caused by a hippo's roar.

Janine Burriau's research indicates there was only 12th dynasty and late 17th dynasty pottery in Memphis and Egypt's delta. The child's tale is a coverup for the destruction of Egypt's 12th dynasty, meaning the Canaanites were on the side of the 12th dynasty fighting Thebes.

The coverup continues with Thebean Ahmose's history, for he lets the Hyksos/Canaanites peacefully depart from Avaris. Why peacefully?
The Hyksos killed his father and brother. Ahmose will let them leave peacefully?

Egyptian priest historian Manetho has this garbled history all wrong. Janine Burriau said the evidence she uncovered shows the Canaanites came to Egypt in peace and did not destroy Egyptian customs or temples.

The Bible in Genesis 47:13-17 also shows the Canaanites peacefully exchanging their horses for bread during the global famine. (Genesis 41:57)

Joseph drove a horse driven chariot and chariots were used at Jacob's funeral. The horse was used in ceremonies in Egyptian king Senusret III's reign, 1724-1685 B.C.

Amorite Babylonian king Samsu-luna 1749-1711 B.C. 9th year the Kassites in horse driven chariots attack Babylon. The Kassites introduced the horse driven chariot into the Middle-East.

Amorite Babylonian kings reigned 1895-1595 B.C. Egypt's 12th dynasty is actually 1843-1628 B.C.
Egypt did have trade with Babylon. Its just not recorded in the history books for some reason.

Josephus book,"The Antiquities of the Jews", page 68 is informative. It relates how the king's daughter Thermuthis discovered Moses in an ark in the water.

Thermuthis wanted Moses to grow up as her son and be heir of her kingdom. The sacred scribe wanted to kill Moses when he saw Moses as the one fore- told who would bring down the kingdom. Thermuthis protected Moses against all his their evil plans.

Thermuthis from the (Thutmose) family is princess Hatshepsut. Her father was Thutmose I who wanted all male Hebrew babies slain. Thutmose II was a sickly king. Queen Hatshepsut ruled for him. Thutmose III was pharoah of the Exodus. Amenhotep II had rebellions on his watch soon after the Exodus the Syrians revolted twice.

Assyrian king Shalmaneser III 867-833 B.C. forces did attack Syrian Hazael's army; and Hazael's army
retreated behind Damascus walls.

Assyrians invaded Samaria and Jehu paid tribute, yet Jehu's son Jehoahaz paid tribute to Syrian king Hazael & his son Benhadad. (2 Kings 13:1-3)

Jehoash 878-838 B.C. paid no tribute to the Assyrians. Jehoash paid Hazael tribute (2 Kings 12:18)

The Egyptian king once fearful the Assyrians might attack Egypt sent no soldiers to help Syrian king Hazael.

You see, historians are at odds over Assyrian king Shalmaneser III's history and his boasts.

Syrian king Hazael had stopped the Assyrians from entering Damascus. Hazael then turned his attention towards Jerusalem.

The Assyrian conquests ceased. Sheshonq's III Egypt was mobilized. Hazael's victory brought Egypt peace from external enemies while internal politics threatened to tear the nation apart.

Abraham left Egypt in 1917 B.C. in Pepi II's 2007-1913 B.C. reign. Abraham was 75 years old; Sarah was 65 years old when they met the old king Pepi II.

Mentuhotep II 1913-1862 B.C. faced a crisis. The Nile river ran low. Farmers lost their crops. Some Egyptians were even eating their children. Nomarchs fighting nomarch's. Chaos prevailed. Mentuhotep II was able to defeat the House of Khety and unify Egypt in his 39th year.

Comments for Exodus to 579 B.C. part 1
by: John

Egyptian king Takelot I 15 years was reduced to 9 years, Shishak III 52 years reduced to 39 years since these kings reigns go no higher according to inscriptions. I agree.

Takelot III 7 years reduced to two years because five years were co-regent. I agree.

Shishak III (Sheshonq III)It said to be the most confusing period in Egypt's history, since not
all the relationships between the many rulers, especially their dates, are clear. Pami could indeed succeed Takelot III.

This dynasty mix between the 22nd and 23rd dynasties might be right. Osorkon IV's reign at 738-723 B.C. does appear to be accurate.

Shishak I, Osorkon I and Shishak II
by: Lujack Skylark

Sheshonq I(Shishak I)995-974 B.C. came up against Jerusalem and he took away all the treasures of the Lord; he took away all: and he took away the gold shields which Solomon had made. (1 Kings 14:25-26)Rehoboam 979-962 B.C.

Shishak came to Jerusalem with 1200 chariots and 60 thousand horsemen and the people were without number came with him out of Egypt: the Lubims, Sukkims and Ethiopians. (2 Chronicles 12:3)
Shishak died a few months after invading Israel.

Osorkon I 974-939 B.C. some 1,000,000 Ethiopians led by Zerah came to attack Judah's king Asa 959-918 B.C. 580,000 man army. Asa and the people with him in 949 B.C. Asa's 10th year smote the Ethiopians at Gerar.(2 Chronicles 14:1 & 14:13-14)

Libyan Egyptian king Shishak I & Libyan Egyptian king Osorkon I both used Ethiopian soldiers in their attacks upon Judah's kings Rehoboam and Asa.
Egyptian scribes fail to mention the Ethiopians.

Sheshonq II (Shishak II)939 B.C. died after reigning over Egypt for one month. He was buried in a silver coffin. Where did Egypt obtain the silver? Most likely from Shishak I attack upon Jerusalem in Rehoboam's 5th year.

Egyptian Assyrian History part II
by: Anonymous

The reason for part I Egyptian Assyrian history list is to follow the Assyrian kings reign of years as to how they align with ancient history.

Assyrian king Tiglath-Pilesar III 753-734 B.C. reigned when Ethiopian Egyptian king Piankhi began controlling all of Egypt 738-728 B.C.

Tiglath-Pilesar III reigned during part of Israel king Hoshea's 737-728 B.C. reign.

Assyrian king Shalmaneser V 733-729 B.C. reigned when Osorkon IV 738-723 B.C. was Piankhi's puppet.
Shalmaneser V reigned during Hoshea's last years of reign.

Assyrian king Sargon II 728-712 B.C. goes to war against Ethiopian Egyptian king Shabaka 728-714 B.C. (Isaiah 20:1-4) Sargon II received horses from Osorkon IV as tribute. Shabaka destroys Osorkon IV's power.

Osorkon IV reign occurred in the reigns of Assyrian kings: Tiglath-Pileser, Shalmaneser V & Sargon II. Egyptian kings: Piankhi and Shabaka & Israel's king Hoshea. Key link in linking all histories together.

Egyptian king Shebitku 714-698 B.C. Ethiopian king Taharka 714-698 B.C. (2 Kings 19:9)knew king Hezekiah 725-696 B.C.

Assyrian king Sennacherib 711-688 B.C. tried forcing Hezekiah from power and lost.

Egyptian/Ethiopian king Taharka 698-672 B.C. fought Assyrian king Esarhaddon 687-676 B.C.
Taharka loses round one. Necho I briefly replaces Taharka. Assyrians withdraw from Egypt. Taharka rebels. Necho I flees away to Assyria. Esarhaddon tries to reconquer Egypt yet he dies before arriving in Egypt.

Assyrian king Ashur-banipal drove Taharka from power in 672 B.C. Tanutamon arises to power.

Egyptian/Ethiopian king Tanutamon 672-664 B.C.
slays all the Libyan chieftains who sided with the Assyrans.

Assyrian king Ashur-banipal 675-633 B.C. Ashur-banipal has problems with the Elamites before invading Egypt. Tanutamon flees from the Assyrian army.


664-610 B.C. Psamtik is installed as king over Egypt by Ashur-banipal.
610-604 B.C. Necho II reigns over Egypt. He slays Josiah in 608 B.C. (2 Kings 23:29)Nebucahnezzar slays Necho II in 604 B.C. Jehoiakim's 608-597 B.C. 4th year. (Jeremiah 46:2)

Assyrian kings:

Ashur-Etil-llani 632-629 B.C. civil war rages throughout Assyria.

Sin-Shum-Ishkun 628-612 B.C. loses Iranian provinces to the Medes in 625 B.C. and Babylon in 616 B.C. Chaldeans burn down Sin-Shum-Ishkun's palace in 612 B.C. Assyrians flee to Carchemish.

Assyrian general Ashur-Uballit II 611-604 B.C. at first repels Babylonian king Nabopolassar's army.
Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar then destroys both the Assyrian and Egyptian armies in 604 B.C.

Egyptian history does align with Assyrian history.
(Egyptian Chronology vs. Bible Chronology helps in unifying this history)

Egyptian Assyrian History Part I
by: Anonymous

Assyrian king Ashur-Uballit I 1413-1376 B.C. paid Akenaton 1424-1407 B.C.tribute. Ashur-Uballit II

2243 B.C.
by: Rich

Egyptian history begins with the construction of the Step Pyramid in Zoser's reign after the Egyptians left the Tower of Babel and arrived in Africa. The Step Pyramid and temple are Sumerian in design. Lets check out Sumer history first.

The Bible states the 1st cities built in Genesis 10:10 are Babel, then Akkad/Accad/ Agade, Erech etc. Nimrod/Sargon was the first ruler of Akkad.

Akkadian kings:

Sargon/Nimrod 2243-2187 B.C.
Rimush....... 2187-2178 B.C.
Manishtushu.. 2178-2163 B.C.
Naramsin..... 2163-2123 B.C.
Sumer poem states Naramsin falls to the Gutium.
Archaeologist Sir Leonard Woolley states the Gutium reigned over Sumer 91 years followed by Erech's king Utu-Khegal followed by UR III.

Gutium 2123-2032 B.C. Woolley 91 yrs.
Utu-Khegal 2032-2025 B.C. Woolley 7 yrs.
UR III 2025-1917 B.C. Woolley 108 yrs.
The Bible: (Genesis 11:18-32)

Peleg born 2243 B.C.
Reu born 2213 B.C.
Serug..... 2181 B.C.
Nahor..... 2151 B.C.
Terah lives 2122-1917 B.C.

Zoser 2243-2225 B.C.
Snefru 2225-2201 B.C.
Khufu 2201-2179 B.C.
Djedefre 2179-2172 B.C.
Khafre 2172-2148 B.C.
Menkaure 2148-2122 B.C.

Akkadian king Naramsin attacks Menkaure called Manium in the Sumer language.

Shepsekaf 2122-2118 B.C.
Userkaf 2118-2111 B.C.
Sahure 2111-2197 B.C.

Neferirkare 2111-2101 B.C. Sahure's brother.
Shepseskare 2101-2094 B.C.
Neferefre 2094-2087 B.C.
Niuserre 2087-2056 B.C.
Menkauhor 2056-2048 B.C.
Djedkare 2048-2009 B.C.

Sahure 2111-2097 B.C.
Unas 2097-2068 B.C.
Teti 2068-2056 B.C.
Pepi I 2056-2007 B.C.
Pepi II 2007-1913 B.C. had trade with UR III.
This is how Egyptians, leaving the Tower of Babel, begin building Egypt.

Egyptian Hittite History
by: REX

Hittite chronology matched to Exodus to 579 B.C. chart. Hittite empire destroyed in 1237 B.C. Ramses III 8th year.

Hittite kings:

Suppiluliumas I 1428-1392 B.C.
Arunwandas II 1392-1391 B.C.
Mursilas II 1391-1363 B.C.
Muwatallis 1363-1337 B.C.
Mursilas III 1337-1330 B.C.
Hattusilas III 1330-1301 B.C.
Tudhaliyas III 1301-1274 B.C.
Arunwandas III 1274-1267 B.C.
Suppiluliumas II 1267-1237 B.C.

Hittite king Suppiluliumas I paid tribute to Egyptian kings Amenhotep III 1462-1424 B.C. and Akenaton 1424-1407 B.C.

Hittite king Suppilulumas I went to war with Egypt when Egyptian king Ay 1396-1392 B.C. reigned. General Horemheb slew Sup's son Zannanza as he headed to Egypt to marry Tut's widow.

Hittite king Muwatallis goes to war against Egyptian king Seti I 1360-1347 B.C. and Ramses II 1347-1280 B.C. Ramses II 5th year 1342 B.C. is the battle for Kadesh.

Hittite king Hattusilas III 1330-1301 B.C. in Ramses II 34th year 1313 B.C. receives Lebanon as a wedding present when he married Hattusilas daughter.

Hittite king Tudhaliyas III 1301-1274 B.C receives grain from Egyptian king Merneptah I 1280-1268 B.C. because Assyrian king Tukulti-Ninurta 1283-1247 B.C. set fire to Hittite fields throughout the Hittite empire.

Hittite king Suppiluliumas II 1267-1237 B.C. has a quiet reign until the Sea People's destroy the Hittite empire in Ramses III 1245-1213 B.C. 8th year in 1237 B.C.

Once Egyptian chronology is established, Hittite history easily matches Egyptian history.

Janine Bourriau
by: Anonymous

Past archaeologists have discovered there were no buildings built from after Pepi II until Mentuhotep II. (The first intermediate dynasty is fraudulent according to the Sakkara kings list)

Janine Bourriau discovered 12th dynasty pottery in the so-called 13,14,15,16 and near the end of the 17th dynasty. (The second intermediate dynasty is fraudulent according to the Abydos kings list)

Janine Bourriau digging at Memphis and the delta only found 12th dynasty pottery and late 17th dynasty pottery produced during Seqenenre Tao and Kamose reigns.

This indicates Seqenenre Tao and Kamose had something to do with starting a war trying to bring down the prosperous Amenemhet/Senusret 12th dynasty.Ahmose ended that dynasty. Egyptian priest Manetho therefore lied about Hyksos warriors destroying Egypt.

Senusret III reign 1724-1685 B.C.
Amenemhet III..... 1685-1640 B.C.
Amenemhet IV.......1640-1631 B.C.
Queen Sobekneferu..1631-1628 B.C.
Ahmose.............1628-1603 B.C.

Hyksos Canaanites entered Egypt with Jacob in 1702 B.C. during the global famine. (Genesis 41:57)Ahmose defeated them finally at Sharuhen,
Canaan in 1608 B.C. Hyksos stayed in Egypt 94 years.

Since there was no first or second intermediate dynasties, Pepi II's reign at 2278-2184 B.C. is reduced to 2003-1913 B.C.

Walking in Egypt's footsteps
by: Lujack Skylark

Isn't it amazing Abraham is living at Ur when Pepi II's army is patrolling Canaan? God protected Abraham.

Isaac lived for 180 years from when Egyptian king Mentuhotep II reigned over Egypt to Senusret III's reign dying some 10 years before Jacob enters Egypt. Senusret III is first king to have annexed Canaan. God protected Isaac.

Jacob lived his last 17 years in Egypt under Joseph's protection. God protected Joseph.

Moses was saved by Egyptian princess Hatshepsut; Moses gathered up his people and left Egypt after Thutmose III's army had defeated the Amorites. The Amorite 400 years of power then ended. (Genesis 15:13-16)God saved Moses.

There are 521 years from the Exodus to Rehoboam's 5th year when Egyptian king Shishak attacks Jerusalem. (1 Kings 14:25)Those 520 years there was no contact with Egyptian troops. What a God given miracle!

We can view ancient history and see how God defended the Jewish people.

Egyptian History

Mitanni king Tushratta daughter was married to Egyptian king Akenaton. Tushratta formed a military alliance with Egypt. Akenaton did not honor the military alliance when people in the Mitanni kingdom rebelled.

Tushratta is Cushan-Rishathaim. (Judges 3:8)He oppressed Israel for 8 years. When the Mitanni withdrew from Israel, Hittite king Suppiluliumas I empire then expanded southward from Asia-Minor to Hobah just north of Damascus.

Israelites lived safely along the banks of the Jordan river as the Hittites and Egyptians fought each other after Akenaton had died.

Minor Egyptian queen Tiy conspired to have Egyptian king Ramses III killed. Tiy wanted to see her son Pentewere succeed to the throne.

Abimelech lived in the last days of Ramses III reigning for 3 years. Abimelech slew his 70 brothers. (Judges 9:18-22)

There was lawlessness in both Egypt and Israel at this time in history.

Egyptian queen Tausert had an affair with her Syrian butler Bay. Syrians migrated from Syria into Asia-Minor, Lebanon, Israel and Egypt to escape Assyrian king Tukulti-Ninurta's reign over Syrian lands.

Israel's judge Gideon (Judges 6:3)fought the children from the east (Syria)winning victory over them.

Egyptian king Ramses II in his 34th year reigning over Egypt gives the Hittite king Hattusilas III Lebanon as a wedding present. The next Hittite king Tudhaliyas III ceded Lebanon over to the Amorites in a military alliance against Assyrian king Shalmanesar I.

The Hittites knew the secret to iron production and share this technology with the Amorites.
Jabin the Amorite Canaanite invades Israel with 900 iron chariots. (Judges 4:2-3)

Israel's history does match the history of ancient nations when we match Egyptian, Hittite and Amorite history together.

Egyptian king Sahure was born in the sign of Nekhbet, the vulture goddess showing us there was famine near Egypt. Sit-Hathor-Yunis was Senusret III's sister, who worshipped the vulture goddess Nekhbet during the global world famine, occurring when Joseph reigned as governor over Egypt.

Climate changes and famine
by: Jack

There was a complete climate change in the Sahara desert shortly after the pyramids at Giza were built. The Sahara grasslands turned into desert as the monsoon rains failed and nomadic tribes then fled to the Nile river, beginning in Sahure's reign.

There was a dry spell in east Africa where the Nile river starts, causing less water to enter Egypt resulting in famine after Pepi II died.

There was the global famine. (Genesis 41:57)This happened during Senusret III's reign, when Joseph was in Egypt.

We can study ancient history by studying climate.

Amenemhet III son of Senusret III completes work on Bahr Yosef.(Joseph's canal)Babylonian slaves from the reign of Amorite/Babylonian king Ammi-ditana help complete the canal.Amenemhet III builds a Labyrinth after Egyptians visited the Minoans on the island of Crete and saw the Minoan Labyrinth.

Amenemhet IV son of Amenemhet III and Sobekneferu's brother continues trade with Byblos and keeps the Sinai mines operating. Joseph dies when Amenemhet IV reigned and the Egyptian king mysteriously dies afterward. Prosperity stops in Egypt after Joseph dies.

Queen Sobekneferu and Thebean Kamose both have a 3 year reign. It appears the Thebeans want their power back. Thebean Mentuhotep IV was slain by Amenemhet I. Perhaps the Thebeans assassinated Amenemhet IV. The mysterious death of queen Sobeknefru is a coverup and the next king in the Abydos kings list to follow Amenemhet IV is Thebean Ahmose.

This war did not start with a hippo roaring in Thebes waking up Hyksos king Apepi starting the Hyksos and Thebean war.The Hyksos/Canaanites living in Egypt since Senusret III reigned went to war on the side of queen Sobekneferu. This is why no one can find her pyramid, since Thebean Ahmose won victory against the Hyksos/Canaanites and her history would be erased.

Ahmose is from Egypt's so-called 18th dynasty and from the 18th forward-Egyptian history provides few difficulties.

Civil war indeed occurred after Pepi II died for the nomarchs were declaring war against each other and trade between various nomes had ceased. A famine struck Egypt and the Memphis dynasty fell.

Mentuhotep II won the civil war in his 39th year reigning at Thebes; Mentuhotep II also kicked the Amorite invaders out of Egypt's delta. Mentuhotep III Mentuhotp II's son re-establishes trade with Punt. Mentuhotep IV is a usurper.

Amenemhet I built the Walls of the Ruler to keep the Amorites out of Egypt; Amenemhet I restores trade with Byblos. Abraham dies shortly after the Walls of the Ruler had been completed.

Senusret I son of Amenemhet I is called the Throat Sliter of Asiatics. God tells Isaac to stay out of Egypt.

Amenemhet II son of Senusret I receives the Tod treasure from the Minoans in his 28th year of reign.

Senusret II has Minoan laborers build his temple at Luhun as foreigners trickle into Egypt.

Senusret III is son of Senusret II. Senusret III stops the flow of Nubians into Egypt. Senusret III decapitates his baker. (Genesis 40:19-20)
Joseph becomes governor of Egypt in Senusret III's reign. Senusret III annexes Canaan and Joseph manages both Egypt's and Canaan's economy.
This is where the Canaanite/Hyksos history begins.
(Genesis 47:13-17)

This is the hidden truth where Egyptian history matches the Bible. 99% of Egyptian historians repeat Egyptian priest Manetho's 30+ dynasties, while knowing many dynasties did not exist.

Egyptian history

Egyptian real history shows us the less characters given before the 18th dynasty, the better Egyptian history matches the Bible.

The House of Khety will fight Thebean Mentuhotep II in a civil war which happens after Pepi II dies. Sakkara Egyptian kings list spells out the next king after Pepi II is Mentuhotep II.

Queen Sobeknefru will fight Thebean Kamose after Amenemhet IV dies. The Hyksos/Canaanites will side with Sobekneferu in this civil war. The next king after Amenemhet IV is Ahmose the brother of Kamose. Abydos Egyptian kings list after Amenemhet IV the next king is Ahmose.

Perhaps the true history will come to light, perhaps it won't. We won't see Egyptian history matching the Bible unless the false Egyptian dynasties are eliminated.

Why is this important?

Bible mockers constantly state Egyptian history began in 3400 B.C., when our Bible shows Noah's Flood at 2344 B.C., and mankind leaving the Tower of Babel in 2243 B.C. Egyptian historian Manetho spun a lie which few seem to challenge.

Walking in Egyptian Footsteps
by: REX

Famine struck the Sahara as the weather patterns changed in the days Sahure lived. Sahure's name is derived from Sahara. Emaciated people are pictured in Sahure's causeway.

General Unas' causeway also shows starving people invading Egypt. Unas defeats Egypt's enemies in the north, south, east and west proclaiming his victory to his god Atum. Unas has palm temple columns just like Sahure.

Teti Unas son-in-law has trade with Gudea the governor of Lagash. Both build their temples to the Holy Stars. Teti is assassinated by a palace guard.

Pepi I, son of Teti, recruits 50,000 Cushites to fight the Amorite sanddwellers in Canaan and wins victory after fighting five wars.

Pepi II, son of Pepi I, burns down the Amorite temple at Mendes, Egypt after the Amorites burn down the Egyptian temple at Byblos, built by Snefru. These are dangerous times in Egypt. Abraham fears the Egyptians will kill him to steal Sarah. (Genesis 12:12)

Walking in Egyptian footsteps, we discover some interesting insights on how history occurred in Egypt after mankind left the Tower of Babel.

Every thing that people know, someone knew before them. If that is not true, then where would the teaching be? God says that all man's knowledge is ignorance to Him. History is so full of misinformation that people fill in the blanks to appease their own minds.

Since we of this generation were not present, we do not know the whole truth. Maybe Noah didn't build the ark, and maybe Jesus didn't go to the cross. Maybe God's bible isn't true at all.

If that is true, then what can we believe? God said He sent a delusion to confuse mankind. Who knows? One thing for sure, every person on earth will die someday, and one way or another they will find out, or not.

Living in the past and not knowing the real truth is not living at all. No one can delay the inevitable; and living in the past is a waste of life. I believe we should live in the present and the past will take care of itself. This day is a gift from God, that is why we call it the present.

Walking in Egyptian Footsteps

Egyptian king Snef-ru son of Path-ru-(sim)(Genesis 10:14)defied Ptah, built an Egyptian temple at Byblos along with 40 cedar ships. Snefru built two pyramids.

Khufu son of Snefru built the Great Pyramid at Giza. Redejef son of Khufu established trade with the island of Dilmun. Khafre son of Khufu built the second pyramid at Giza. Menkaure son of Khafre built the third pyramid at Giza.

Shepsekaf son of Menkaure completes Menkaure's pyramid at Giza. Userkaf Menkaure's son-in-law built the first sun temple in Egypt. Sahure son of Userkaf developed trade with Punt.

This is the correct way of establishing Egyptian history by following the pyramid builders.

Following father to son succession is the way to establish real dynasties.
