For 2,500 years academics and historians had concluded that Ramesses II was Pharaoh of the Exodus when the Israelites escaped from Egypt. However, recent doubts about this long established belief have led many to conclude that the whole story was just a myth.
This book takes a new look at the historical events and, using information available from both biblical sources and Egyptian records, illustrates what actually happened and when. From the social, economic and religious factors that led to the enslavement of the Israelites to the undermining of a weak Pharaoh by Moses, new details are unearthed that fit perfectly with the best knowledge that we have of the 18th Dynasty Monarchs of Ancient Egypt.
This brings alive the Bible story from Joseph to Moses and proves when, how and why the Exodus really happened.
