Actually, this story is a myth. It is valid from a religious point of view but did not take place historically. Their is not a shread of evidence to support it.
Hi Horemheb, welcome to the board. You state it is a myth, that there is not a shread of evidence to support it (the Exodus).
Sorry but i disagree with you. In the time frame that modern Egyptian and Biblical Archaeologists place the Exodus there isn't a shred i agree. Their inability does not negate the reality of Biblical events or people. It simply means that it isn't where they think it should be or ought to be. The real problem is the chronology, they use to try and find Biblical events, and people.
The chronology they universially use is based upon the 2nd century AD chronology of Sextus Julius Africanus an early church father. Which was then reworked by another early church father, Jerome in the late 4th century AD. This chronology was altered substancially by Archbishop James Ussher (1581-1656) and last altered by supporters of Champollion (1825ca.)
When one is allowed to throw out the chronology formulated by these men. You can not only find the Exodus at the end of the Old Kingdom, but you can find using Biblical years. Joseph, the sons of Ishmael, and Abraham in earlier stages of Egyptian history. It is an almost perfect match between two different ancient records.
You might find some of my other posts on this subject interesting they are in this index- Exodus Pharaoh Theories, and in the Ancient Egypt index- Chronology. You might like to examine in the Queens index- Queen Were-tymtes, and Queen Merneith two queens that one day may actually be counted as having real Biblical relationships.
I hope you come back and learn more.
