Description

Scholars of the Hebrew Bible have in the last decade begun to question the historicity of the Israelite sojourn in Egypt as described in the book of Exodus, citing a lack of historical and archaeological evidence. Those advancing these claims, however, are not necessarily specialists in the study of Egyptian history. In this work, the author examines the most current Egyptological evidence and argues that it supports the biblical record concerning Israel in Egypt. Drawing on evidence from recent excavations in the Nile Delta, extra-biblical texts, inscriptions, artefacts, and recent infra-red satellite photographs, he provides a reconstruction of the Israelite sojourn, defends the plausibility of the Joseph story, discusses the role of Moses in history, and traces the probable route of the Exodus itself.show more
