Eventually, Jehovah commissioned Moses to confront Pharaoh, the Egyptian king:
The stones of archaeology were silent witnesses to the dramas of the past, and it was only afterwhen the Rosetta Stone was discovered, that the ancient records could be deciphered. The Stone was unique in that three languages were inscribed upon it, each telling the same story.
The science of archaeology is thus a fledgling science, and most of its treasures have only been subject to scrutiny in the last century. Today it is possible to not only read hieroglyphics, but also the ancient cuneiform writings.
Astoundingly, the ancient relics have succeeded in silencing many of the Biblical critics. Concerning the story of Josephit is known that the Semitic Hyksos overthrew the Egyptian dynasties for a period of just over a quarter of a century.
During this time, it would have been possible for a Semite to reach the position of prestige occupied by Joseph. In recent times, frescoes have been found in Egyptian tombs depicting fat and thin cows, and inscriptions have been found referring to seven lean and seven opulent years, making this Biblical story more than just a myth.
This is the pharaoh who issued the decree that all the sons born to the Israelites were to be thrown into the river, but that girls were permitted to live Exodus 1: Aaron, the brother of Moses, was born in BC, prior to the reign of Tutmoses I, and he had thus escaped the vicious decree.
According to Biblical chronology, Moses fled Egypt 40 years after his birth in BC Remember, we have to calculate backwards, as we are dealing with the time before Christ.
Two pharaohs reigned simultaneously during the exile of Moses. Tutmoses I, who issued the decree to kill the newborn sons of the Israelites, was the father of Hatshepsut, the princess who is the most likely candidate for having found Moses in the Nile. It is probable that Moses grew up as a foster child in the house of Pharaoh.
Tutmoses I had no sons, and, upon his death in BC, Moses could have become the pharaoh, but he declined.
Again, Moses could have become pharaoh, but again he refused. Hatshepsut herself became the next pharaoh.
Her mortuary temple is at Deir el Bahri, and she ruled Egypt from to BC; a total of 22 years. The story of Hatshepsut is a sad story.
Insix years prior to her death, all official records of Hatshepsut ceased. Her royal wall paintings on the walls of her mortuary temple at Deir el Bahri were defaced, and her statues were destroyed.
To this day, only a few small busts have been found. Such drastic action was only taken if pharaohs were disloyal to Egyptian deities. It is probable that Hatshepsut adopted the Hebrew religion inwhen Egyptian documentation about her ceased. Moses at this time was already in exile, having fled before the wrath of Tutmoses III, who enjoyed the support of the Egyptian priesthood.
Moses heard about the death of Hatshepsut while he was in exile, and her death is recorded in his writings. God heard their groanings and The return of Moses and his fear for Pharaoh is now understandable, particularly since the same pharaoh that induced him to flee became the sole ruler in Egypt.
Tutmoses III was one of the greatest pharaohs in history. He was known as the Napoleon of Egypt. He ruled until BC, which, according to the chronology in 1 Kings 6: The precise dates of the Passover and the Exodus are recorded in the Scriptures. The biography of Tutmoses III, written by Amenemhab says, "Lo, the king completed his lifetime of many years, splendid in valour, in might and triumph: Amenemhab mentions the month and the day of his death: He mounted to heaven, he joined the sun: Egyptians had a way of disguising their embarrassments.
The pharaoh was probably never recovered from the Red Sea, and to hide this fact, a fake mummy was put in his place. There is more circumstantial evidence from the 18th dynasty to support this argument.
According to Egyptian writings, he returned in June BC, when he apparently defaced many Egyptian monuments.
This act needs an explanation. The Bible tells us that all the first-born in Egypt died in the last plague. On returning to Egypt, he would have found not only the Israelites gone, but he would have also found his father dead, and his first-born son killed in the plague.With more than interconnected entries, the Bible Prophecy Timeline is a comprehensive study tool that allows you to explore every character and major event of the Bible, from the creation of the world to last-day prophecies.
The purpose Moses was chosen By God was that - bring the Jews from Egypt to Israel. Not only succeeding in pulling them out of Egypt, but actually bringing them in.
The Holy Land I mean. a) Pir’u, King of Mitzraim! One of the arguments put forward by my good friends to persuade me to drop my thesis that the Exodus took place in Arabia and not from Egypt, is their assumption that the Bible is full of Egyptian names and Pharaoh is one that is given as the triumphal example.

1) you see a river that starts near the equator and runs south to north, it is called the Nile River.
The Nile River runs north into the Nile Delta and finally into the Mediterranean Sea. Scholars of the Hebrew Bible have in the last decade begun to question the historical accuracy of the Israelite sojourn in Egypt, as described in the book of Exodus. The reason for the rejection of the exodus tradition is said to be the lack of historical and archaeological evidence in Egypt.
