[2020 Revision Addition]
Joseph was sold into Egypt at age 17. (37:2) He was given charge over all Egypt during the 7 plenty & 7 famine years when 30. (41:46) He was expert at record keeping and knew the Egyptian Hieratic script (25 letter alphabet – 3000± BC). He was married to the Priest’s daughter! (41:45) By 17, I’m sure Jacob taught him to read and write the family’s native Mesopotamian Semitic Akkadian script (59 letter alphabet – 2350± BC) before being sold. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were wealthy and literate! Joseph merged the two into a Semitic upgrade ofHieratic script. Moses was educated while in Pharaoh’s house some 400 years later. Hebrew has 24 constants and 10 vowel points (32). Recent evidence discovered in the Sinai and the Arabian Peninsulas are proof. Egotistical blind professionals say – not so! Too damn ashamed!
Joseph brought his entire family to Egypt in the second year of the famine. (45:6) Jacob lived in Egypt for 17 years until his death in 1876 BC. (47:28) Joseph was 56 when his father died. [30 + 7 +2 + 17 = 56] Joseph was born 1932 BC. [1876 + 56 = 1932] Joseph died 1821 BC. (50:26) [1932 – 110 = 1821] The Holy Bible is the most accurate History book on the planet! The Egyptian time period that Joseph and the children of Israel prospered in Goshen was the 12th Dynasty. Goshen was called the land of Rameses, Ramesses or Ramses in Genesis, which was a Hebrew blending of Sesostris I, II, III and Amenemhat II – Risamenses, Rimesses or Rimses. Over the course of time the Israelites were probably taxed by successive administrations into slavery. Sound like 1776 to 2020? Since 1913, 17 Administrations in 107 years have done the same!
Joseph was given a royal burial. (41:39-44) He acquired all the wealth of the Egyptian and surrounding people, both money and land, but only retained one fifth for the Priests, his family, then himself. The other 4/5ths was Pharaoh’s for famine recovery and building the 12th Dynasty! (47:1-27) When main street bailed out WALL STREET in 2008, main street suffered its 4/5ths. Now that main street is suffering and WALL STREET is booming (Aug. 18th) where the hell is main street’s 4/5ths?]
Not in book
Where did the year 4131 BC come from? The Holy Bible and the dimensions of the Great Pyramids of Giza. (See second part in Missing Links – Chapter V.) The Holy Bible is the most accurate history book on the planet. The last third of that history was written before it happened! (Daniel 10:21)
