Exodus -Patterns of Evidence

“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”

(Daniel 12:4)

Remember this day when you came out of Egypt, out of the place of slavery’ for the Lord brought you out of here by the strength of HIS hand.

(Exodus 13:3)

For over 1500 years, Western Civilizaton accepted the Bible as being true. But after the 1950’s skepticism grew when archacologists found mounting evidence contradicting the early history of the Bible.

Today, that skepticism has only increased.

Can Moses be found in Egyptian history? Yes, he is there if you know where to look!

From the article:

A reader asked if the Exodus really happened, and, if it did, then wondered why Moses is not mentioned in Egyptian history. Well, it’s quite possible that Moses is featured in the historical records of the eighteenth dynasty, and that he has been overlooked because historians and Bible scholars have not been using a correct Bible chronology for that period. Here’s what I think the correct chronology tells us …

Moses was born in the second year of Thutmose I [footnote 1], the first Egyptian king to have the nomen (birth name) Thutmose (meaning “born of Thoth”) [footnote 2]. Some have associated the name Moses with the last two hieroglyphs in the pharaoh’s name, ms, which mean “bear” as in “bear a child,” and it is similar to the last syllables in the name Ramose (meaning “born of Ra”), which was the name of the father of Hatshepsut’s great steward Senenmut who lived about the same time as Moses.

Shown below is an expansion of Timeline B of Appendix Two of Sacred Chronology of the Hebrew Kings (page 138), which reveals some interesting chronological Senenmut-Moses correlations.

Expanded Timeline for Senenmut and Moses
High Chronology (all dates BCE)
ca. 1536b. Thutmose II (born at about the same time as Hatshepsut, see below).
ca. 1535b. Hatshepsut, daughter of the future Thutmose I (her birth can be estimated from her estimated age of about 52 years old at her death in 1482 BCE). [footnote 3]
1524Thutmose I became pharaoh, decreed death for all Hebrew male infants. [footnote 4]
1523b. Moses, Exodus 2; found by pharaoh’s daughter Hatshepsut when she was 12 years old.
1518d. Thutmose I.
1518Thutmose II became pharaoh, with his sister Hatshepsut as wife-consort.
1516Hatshepsut recognized as pharaoh in the second year of Thutmose II’s reign, according to an inscription in the Chapelle Rouge, block 287, that describes a festival of Amen during which Hatshepsut is made a pharaoh unified with the Ka in the presence of an unnamed king (her husband Thutmose II). [footnote 5]
ca. 1506b. Thutmose III, son of Thutmose II and a secondary wife, Iset.
1504d. Thutmose II.
1504Thutmose III became king as an infant (less than 2 years old).
1504Hatshepsut continued as pharaoh, coreigning with her step-son, Thutmose III, who, at less than 2 years old, was too young to rule as king.
1498Hatshepsut assumes male pharaonic identity, ruling as primary king.
1486Hatshepsut celebrated her “sed year” (her 30th year as a pharaoh).
1483Hatshepsut’s great steward Senenmut disappeared from history (inscriptions place his disappearance in Hatshepsut’s sixteenth year as king). [footnote 6]
1483Moses (40 years old) fled to Midian, Exodus 2.
1482Thutmose III became sole ruler when Hatshepsut died.
Dates based on Chronicle of the Pharaohs Peter A. Clayton (New York: Thames & Hudson; 2006)

Hypothesis: Thutmose I became pharaoh in the year 1,524. The new king decreed that all male Hebrew infants be killed. The following year, 1,523, his twelve-year-old daughter Hatshepsut rescued the infant Moses from the Nile River with the intention of raising him as a member of her household. When Thutmose I died in 1,518, his son Thutmose II became pharaoh and the new pharaoh’s half-sister Hatshepsut became his wife and queen. In the second year of Thutmose II’s reign, according to your author’s interpretation of an inscription on block 287 from the Chapelle Rouge, a festival of Amen was celebrated during which Hatshepsut was recognized as a pharaoh, circa 1516. During their co-reign, Thutmose II produced no male heir with Hatshepsut, but he did sire a son, Thutmose III, with a secondary wife named Iset. When Thutmose II died in 1,504, Hatshepsut continued as a pharaoh, at first sharing her reign with her step-son Thutmose III, who, being less than two years old, was too young to rule. Seven years later, in 1,498, Hatshepsut assumed a masculine public identity and reigned as king of Egypt for the next seventeen years, with her step-son Thutmose III serving in a subordinate role. Sometime after her recognition as pharaoh, Hatshepsut elevated Senenmut to be her chief steward (top official), but Senenmut disappeared from history in 1,483, about a year before Hatshepsut’s death. Senenmut exited from history at precisely the same time that the biblical Moses fled to Midian after murdering an Egyptian, as recorded in Exodus, chapter 2, verses 11-15. That simultaneous timing raises an interesting question. Did Moses kill Senenmut and then have to flee from Hatshepsut’s wrath before returning to Egypt forty years later as the prophet Moses? That scenario would explain why Moses, raised as a son of Hatshepsut and thus enjoying great privilege as son of the king, would fear pharaoh for killing an Egyptian, in this case the king’s most trusted advisor. Whatever the case, the synchronizations between Egyptian chronology and history as known from inscriptions and the Hebrew chronology and history as recounted in the Bible do reveal some interesting correlations.

The Exodus was in the Spring of 1446 BC.
