I believe that the Biblical Exodus truly did happen, just as the Holy Bible-related. The evidence I used pointing to that conclusion includes 1. Corrected Egyptian chronology, 2. Listing of Egyptian pharaohs and their resting places after death, 3. Archaeologists findings of Hebrew graveyards in Egypt, and 4. Egyptian writings after the plagues of the resulting chaos in Egypt.
The conclusions differ from other theories put forth over the years, now mostly disregarded by experts because of incomplete early data.
Helpful to the reader is a series of the chronology of the Hebrew activities in Egypt, including 1. Joseph and the seven years of plenty and the seven years of famine, 2. The life of Moses before and after the Exodus.
The subject of the Egypt’s peoples, especially the pharaohs, and the Hebrews in Egypt, has been of utmost interest by researchers and writers over the centuries. An uncountable number of books have been written on these subjects, including the Exodus. But, there is some disagreement as to the route of the Hebrew Exodus. Moses didn’t post a route sign at the event. There are two major views:
As it is such a lively controversy, we will not give for certain the very best choice in our view but will save it for some future research.
Compared with other lengthy books written over the years on Egypt and this subject, this is a short one, but we feel much needed at this time.
