If Moses "was mighty in words and deeds" (Acts 7:22), one might expect to find his identity among the great men of ancient Egypt. In fact, strong circumstantial evidence supports the discovery of Israel's Deliverer in the person of an important 18th Dynasty prince. Several other fascinating relationships between the Bible and ancient records are presented in this historical survey.
For example, who was the real Pharaoh of the Exodus, if not Ramesses II? Are the Hapiru of the Amarna Letters actually referring to the Hebrew people in Canaan? Which pharaoh did Abraham and Sarah meet when they went to Egypt? By recognizing the true harmony that exists between the Bible and Near Eastern texts, one may find the answers to these and other intriguing questions that have generated so much controversy.
