. The Egyptian rulers, in a genocidal action ordered the execution of all male Hyskos. In retribution the Hyskos called on Set, who they now regarded as the only God, to punish the Egyptians. They now referred to Set as YHWH, in more modern times perhaps Jehovah, to keep his identity a secret. According to the Old Testament, he obliged with a series of plagues which ravaged the Egyptian nation and from which the Egyptian rulers themselves were not exempt. It is an event surrounded by mystery and legend.
The Old Testament tells us that the person who led the Hebrews out of Egypt was a a crown prince of Egypt and a commander of the Egyptian armies whose name was Moses. Centered on various calculations of when the Hyskos finally left Egypt, it is possible the biblical Moses could be Ramose or Amenmose, brothers, sons or nephews of the female Pharaoh Hatshepusat. Jewish tradition identifies Moses as a Hebrew. In truth we have no precise idea who Moses was.
The BullrushesHebrew history claims he was saved from the execution of male children by being floated down the Nile in a basket, where he was found and adopted by Pharaoh’s daughter. He was then brought up as her own son, which is how he became crown prince of Egypt. It is not recorded who she claimed was the father. Moses is supposed to have a brother Aaron from whom all the Priests in Israel are descended. We do not know how Aaron escaped death. Apparently Moses retained knowledge of his true ancestry because his biological sister won a job as his nurse!
. The leader of the Hyskos at this vital juncture, until Moses took control, was possibly also a female, (because all the male children in the previous generation had been eliminated?). Nevertheless in the eyes of the Hyskos/Hebrews their oppressor was female and their leader who failed them was also a woman! This was probably the basis for the subsequent Jewish discrimination against women, the result of an accumulation of circumstances 3500 years ago! In Egypt, after the period in which the Exodus is thought to have occurred, the remnants of the Hyskos, retained adherence to Set. In the rest of Egypt the dominance of Isis was undiminished. Core Egyptian beliefs continued to encourage the equality of women.
This may have been the event which gave rise a belief in a struggle between good and bad gods competing for the hearts and minds of the human race
Exit MosesJust to add to the mystery, Moses then vanished from mainstream history. Neither Ramose or Amenmose played any part in Egyptian history nor Moses is not a key figure in the ongoing history of the Jews! It is possible that Moses took no lasting part in the future of the Hebrews because he was an Egyptian. His motive for leading the Hebrews to the Promised Land is then a matter of further speculation. It is of course possible that the two Egyptian princes Moses and Aaron left Egypt to form another state because of their position being “usurped” by Hatshepuset. It may be all a good story to expedite the creation of a buffer state to the north, which protected Egypt from jealous eyes. They simply adopted the Hyscos “children” to provide a population in the new state.
Priests and KingsThe Jewish Kings were therefore not descended from Moses or Aaron but from Seth, third son of Adam and then according to the old testament through Noah the only survivor of the great flood. No connection with Moses or Aaron whatsoever. Presumably the vast crowd involved in the Exodus were all descendants of Noah!?All the Jewish high priests were however descended from Aaron and therefore they may have been Egyptian, they certainly adopted the Role similar to the Egyptian Priests in the new Jewish state.
Moses ? He married a Kushite Princess and his descendants ultimately came to power as Pharohs of Egypt! He almost certainly was an Egyptian Prince!
