“What if the whole story of the Exodus from Egypt was a fake story, and what if we could prove that it is?”

Exodus Gods and Kings film-5-2

By Dr. Ashraf Ezzat

There wasn’t a time when I did not feel uneasy about the story of the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt. Actually, uneasy is an understatement, for I was always irritated by this notorious story of Moses and Pharaoh of Egypt. Somehow, this Israelite tale couldn’t seem to fit in the history of ancient Egypt nor in my mind. Unlike most people, I couldn’t take this incredible tale for granted.

Whenever we say ‘the Exodus’ everybody unconsciously and instantly recognizes the story as the fleeing of the Israelites headed by Moses from the grip of Egypt’s ruthless Pharaoh. Thanks to the Church, the Synagogue, the Mosque and of course Hollywood films this Exodus story has sunk deep in the collective subconscious of the masses, so deep that the story of Moses and Pharaoh has turned into an almost unshakable historical truth that everybody believes took place in Ancient Egypt.

But actually nothing in the ‘milieu of that story’ indicates that it happened in Egypt, except maybe the mistaken association between ‘Pharaoh’ and ‘King’ of Egypt.

Likewise, nothing in ancient Egyptian records or its oral tradition say or even allude to the fact that this tale of Moses really happened in Egypt. Even more shocking is the fact that the ancient Egyptian records do not refer to the Kings of Egypt as Pharaohs. Yes, Pharaoh was never a title for Egypt’s king. Linking Pharaoh to Ancient Egypt is merely a myth propagated by centuries of falsehood brought about by misleading interpretation of Biblical history.

The only reason we know the story of the Exodus happened in Egypt is because the Bible says so. We keep on believing that is the case because mainstream Egyptologists just went along with the Biblical narrative and absentmindedly designated Egypt’s Kings as Pharaohs. But if we examined the Hebrew text the Bible (currently in our hands) used as a reference we will strangely not find Egypt mentioned in it as the site/land of the Exodus story. The whole mess/deception took place during translating the Hebrew/Aramaic stories into Greek back in the third century BC. This is when Egypt was first hijacked and forcibly placed in the Hebrew Bible as the theater of the Israelite landmark stories. Ironically this whole act of duplicity took place on Egyptian soil and specifically at its legendary library of Alexandria.

But what if the Bible as we know it has long been tampered with?

  • What if the first western translation of the so-called Israelite stories, that came to be known as the Septuagint Bible, was a distorted translation?
  • What if the Israelite stories we all have been made to believe took place in Egypt simply did not?
  • What if Egypt was fraudulently introduced in the Bible as the theater of the Israelite stories?
  • What if the homeland of Judaism and the early Israelites is not Palestine?
  • What if ancient Egypt never knew any so called Pharaohs?
  • What if Abraham, Joseph and Moses never set foot in Egypt nor even dreamed about it?

What if the whole story of the Exodus from Egypt was a fake story, and what if we could prove that it is?

Have you ever wondered why are the Egyptian Pyramids and temples not mentioned in the Bible? Do you know that Egypt is mentioned in the Bible around six hundred times? The number is phenomenal and perplexing at the same time, for no one can revisit Egypt that too many times and never refers to one of its ancient icons; the Pyramids.

On the other hand do you have any idea how many times Israel/Israelites were mentioned in the Egyptian records? Get ready for this surprise; only once. Don’t jump to any hasty conclusions; this is not our evidence that Egypt was not the land of the Exodus; rather this is a prelude to our investigation (as detailed in our book, “Egypt Knew no Pharaohs nor Israelites“)

We were spoon-fed the idea that the Israelites were kept in bondage for almost 400 years (some say 260 years) in Egypt, and yet all of their stories are devoid of any trace of Egyptian influence. Moreover, and to our amazement, slavery was not a common practice in ancient Egypt in the first place. Unlike the pervasive culture of slavery in the Israelite stories, Ancient Egypt never had a public market for trading slaves.

Everything about ancient Egyptian culture; its art, architecture, monuments, people, theology, mythology and pantheon of gods is uniquely strong and influential even to this very day. After such a long sojourn in the land of the Nile Valley, one would have expected to find some trace of Egyptian cultural influence in the Israelite history and narrative, but that was hardly the case. Though the Israelites only spent around seventy years in the Babylonian Captivity, still that short period was documented by both the Israelites and the Babylonians and reference to it is also found in the Persian records.

On the other hand, the Hebrew Bible claims the Israelites sojourned in Egypt for hundreds of years and yet we fail to find any extra-biblical documentation or mention either of the Israelite sojourn or of their exodus in the Egyptian records, or non-Egyptian for that matter.

There wasn’t even any mention of the Pyramids, one of the wonders of the ancient world, in the Israelite stories. You can’t stay that long in Egypt without taking note of the Pyramids. Most foreign historians and military leaders who came to Egypt from late antiquity onwards like Alexander the Great, Strabo, Diodorus Siculus, and of course Herodotus were keen to mention and document their memories and commentaries about the famous site.

“The eighth king, Chemmis of Memphis, ruled fifty years and constructed the largest of the three pyramids, which are numbered among the seven wonders of the world” Diodorus Siculus (90 – 30 BC), library of history.

But when it comes to the Israelites their Hebrew Bible is totally silent about not only the Pyramids, but also any feature of ancient Egyptian culture or architecture.

Seventy years of captivity in Babylon have left its mark on the Hebrew culture, the Hebrew Talmud and the Hebrew Bible. Themes from Sumerian and Babylonian mythology like that of the flood, Adam and Eve and the tree of knowledge can be traced in the Hebrew book. Even parallels could be drawn between the birth legend of King Sargon of Akkad and that of Moses.

The four-hundred-year sojourn in Egypt should have left its mark on the Israelites and their culture, but that is nowhere to be found because they have never been to Egypt. And no, the argument that claims the Israelites refrained from being affected by pagan beliefs and culture can’t be considered valid, for all sorts of Sumerian, Assyrian and Babylonian (pagan) cultural influences are jammed into their Torah.

The not so infrequent comparison between King Akhenaten’s monotheism and that of the Israelites is also invalid in essence for the Jewish cult is tribal, militaristic and lacked (actually forbade) any genuine artistic manifestations while that of Akhenaten was universal in nature (built on ancient Egyptian belief in a supreme God) that was celebrated by works of revolutionary art and architecture. Besides Akhenaten’s Aten was an inclusive deity that embraced all his children and not just one specific tribe of the desert.

No matter how hard you dig into the Israelite stories you will not find any Egyptian influence, not a speck of impact, except maybe the mention of the word Pharaoh. And guess what; Egypt never knew any Pharaohs either (how about that for a hard-hitting revelation).

“Re-examine your old beliefs” to find out how they they have come to define you. Indeed we are limited, if not pre-conditioned, by our old beliefs and stories. As they once carved our past those same old stories keep on shaping how we view the present. Only the critical scrutiny of some of our old beliefs will decide if they will keep their (unwarranted) authority over us in the future.

If you are a truth seeker and would like to unearth the truth that has been blocked for over two thousand years, you will want to read Dr. Ashraf Ezzat’s ebook “Egypt Knew no Pharaohs nor Israelites”.

We have been spoon-fed lies for too long. It is time we weaned off it.

  1. Dear Dr. Ashraf Ezzat.
    I appreciate your thoughts. I have been interested in this part of the history mainly because my father was a minister and I read the Bible as one of my first books. In my view the Exodus story is far from reliable. It may be a mix of two historical events and a lot of folk lore. Much of the information is contradictory.
    In my youth I found the history older than about 1 000 BCE to be mostly literal but at that time I trusted the history told after that date.
    With some surprise I have learnt in recent years that there are no evidence even for king David or king Solomon, that there are more evidence for the kings in Samaria. Jerusalem was probably a very small town then. No monuments and no sign of a big bureaucracy.
    The question comes if king David is only invented or if he is “borrowed” to be used in a wishful thinking.
    I have been told that there was an Egyptian king in the Nile delta named “Duad”. Do you agree or deny this?
    A less known king there is labeled “The Silver Pharaoh” due to his sarcophagus. I.a. Wikipedia claims that he had a son named Sol-Amon. Do you share this opinion?
    Regards Torsten


    1. The so called ‘Silver Pharaoh” was officially titled “Akheperre Setepenamun” or “Psusennes I” in Greek and he was never referred to, in the Egyptian records as “Pharaoh”. Moreover he never had a son called “Sol-Amon”. Even if he had such a son, I wouldn’t go as far and wild as to connect him with King Solomon of the Israelites. The Israelites lived in a faraway land in ancient Arabia and Yemen.


  2. Shiva spoke from pillar of fire like to Brahma like the god of Abraham. Abraham and Sarah Brahma and Saraswati. Indian literature is huge and have well structured stories that can rival any modern day fiction.


  3. There was another exodus story. Krishna moved all his people from Mathura to Dwaraka through a mountain route when some alleged greek dude named Kalayavana attacked him. Krishna’s foster mamma’s name is yashoda (yashua ?). Hindus worshipped the golden cow Surabhi and her golden calves kapila cows. I write spin offs of different stories like a hobby and I can certainly see some spin off here ha ha.


  4. The Egypt of the Old Testament, and New, is not a real place but is symbolic of both serfdom and refuge. Do we even know what name the ‘egyptians’ gave to their country? I am also following an interest in the origin of the seven day week. Could it be more to do with the shelf life of bread rather than the solar system? These subjects are so fascinating


  5. I know why I don’t waste time reading blogs and comments. I just wasted an hour reading them. My question is what evidence would you expect to find 3000+ years after the Exodus? Bones? Clothes? Shoes? Moses’ wooden staff? Perhaps a diary of maps and with running records, dates, times, and years of when they were in the desert. I have not read the entire Exodus story for a while, but I tend to recall horrible conditions. Beyond poverty conditions for the time. It makes sense to me modern day explorers or archaeologists might not find evidence of the Biblical Exodus. Jimmy Hoffa has only been gone 40 years and we have not found evidence of him yet. If we can’t find Hoffa with modern day science what makes anyone think there really should be Exodus evidence??? I contend it is logical there would b no evidence. I mean after 3,000 years should we really find a desert people that had no food, no shelter, no water, and who dealt with 40 years of desert storms and worse…Have you ever used a sand blaster? You remove paint in seconds. A 40 year sand blast seems like that would destroy a lot of evidence you are looking for. I don’t buy we should have evidence of the occasion. Oh by the way. Vultures circled then to….not to mention sand worms, sand mites, fleas, etc…flies maggots etc


  6. Why does the Bible need to mention pyramids? Or why would the Bible mention pyramids? It is my experience that people have more pressing questions than about the pyramids. Questions like: Where did we come from? Why are there two genders? How come we eat and sleep? Why do we love or think? Why are there stars? etc… The Bible answers every important and natural question people have. There is not one reason why the pyramids need to be mentioned in the Bible. The God who created us, and Who knows us best knew there was no reason to mention the pyramids so He stuck to what we need to know, not what may be interesting to know!


    1. Why the Bible needs to mention the Pyramids. Well, simply because your Bible is laden with stories that we are told/made to believe happened in Egypt. Take Egypt out of your Bible and the whole structure of the so called “Judeo-Christian” cult will crumble to the ground (of earthly truth). A divine revelation needs not tell humans facts about biology and cosmology (we have gone so far in that regard on our own) instead, a true revelation should lead us humans to enlightenment, tolerance and unity (the things organized religions have miserably failed to bring about)


  7. First of all, there are multiple Egyptian influences on early biblical culture. The Ark of the Covenant has its Egyptian antecedents. The Temple was built in an Egyptian style (the way the columns were styled, having a holy of holies, etc.) But more than that, looking at conventional scholarship to find or not find the Exodus is an exercise in futility…because conventional chronology is off by a few hundred years, due to the third intermediate period of Egypt being artificially inflated by having the 21st and 22nd dynasties be sequential instead of overlapping.

    Google “patterns of evidence”. The Exodus itself (and the preceding period of sojourn) actually fits quite well into a 12th dynasty Egypt setting, after the pyramids were built.


    1. The (so called) Ark of the Covenant and the (so called) Temple have absolutely nothing to do with Ancient Egypt. They don’t even have anything to do with (down to earth) history and archeology. However, both have everything to do with brainwashing dogma/fantasy and Ancient Arabian (Bedouin/nomadic) culture. Messing around with Egyptian chronology is the real exercise in futility.


      1. Well, it’s very clear that you’ve made up your mind about that (attempting to fix Egyptian chronology, that is). So be it. Since you’ve given me no reason why you think so, I hope you can understand that I choose to differ with you.


  8. nice try…but my faith is not shaken…just because Pyramid isn’t mentioned in the Bible…even Mt Everest is not mentioned in the Bible…neither is the Pacific ocean..Thanks for nice information


  9. “Do you know that Egypt is mentioned in the Bible around six hundred times?” My remark : Do you know that Allah is mentioned in the Coran around three thousand times? So what does it “prove” ? …. O don’t know.


    1. If “Allah” is really mentioned three thousand times in the Qur’an then that should indicate/prove that “Allah” must be an essential theme in the Islamic history, so essential that its presence could be tangible/discerned by scholars of history and comparative religion. While historians and archeologists have no problem linking ‘Allah’ with ‘Islamic historical finds’, they could hardly make that link between Egypt (with its ancient history and culture) and the biblical stories.


  10. “Egypt Knew no Pharaohs nor Israelites”. OK, about the Israelites you may discuss (I’ll if will have some time). But deniying the Pharaos, I think it is ridiculous. Sheer ridiculous.


    1. Well, the post has some strong (archeological) points regarding the deities of ancient Syria (not to be confused with Canaan). But, I’m afraid the part about Yahweh, typical of the western school of biblical history and archeology, is shrouded in absolute confusion and misconception.


  11. Holy cow your posts are AMAZING. You are probably one of the best historians and Egyptianologists out there. The thing I find surprising is that this issue wasn’t discussed earlier. We need more people like you…people who actually questions everything and try to thoroughly analyze things instead of just shrugging and accepting conformist ideologies and stories like most people.

    Bravo, sir.


  12. The name Moses more than likely is derived from the Egyptian word for “son of“ ie: Tuthmosis or Thoth- Moses (son of Thoth),Rameses or Ra- Moses(son of Ra) & so on. The Ark of the Covenant description resembles Egyptian Arks

    The golden calf that Moses brother Aaron made & the Hebrews worshiped while Moses was up on the mount was obviously an image of the goddess Hathor

    These are a few things that point to the Hebrews sojourn in Egypt.
    I believe the Exodus happened several centuries earlier than indicated in the Bible.
    This is why I think so many simply feel it did not occur. There looking in the right place but looking for evidence in the wrong era. PI Rameses is built on top of Avaris is the former capitol of the Hysko Dynasty & the Hyskos first migrated into the Nile Delta or Goshen if you like.
    You have Northwest-Semitic Names in a List of Egyptian Slaves from the Eighteenth Century B. C.
    See- W. F. Albright
    Journal of the American Oriental Society
    Vol. 74, No. 4 (Oct. – Dec., 1954), pp. 222-233

    I think the Bible like all ancient spiritual documents contain symbolism mixed with historical allusions & anachronisms. The Hindj Vedas point to events that many believe actually occurred. The Troy of Homer’s Illiad existed & Troy was destroyed but if their was an Achilles there or who the warrior that may have inspired Achilles is a question. I feel this is the same for Moses & the Exodus. An event that actually occurred but the accuracy of when & who played a part in these events have been made murky by myth & legend

    1. To HughCipher,
      Following your line of thinking (cherry picking), I’m really starting to find some damning clues myself . I think Mozart, the famous German music composer, is the real Moses. I mean his name could be broken down to Mozes-Art (which means Moses who headed North to Europe) … And if that’s not strong enough as an evidence, look at his opera “The Magic Flute” where you could see how the main characters were initiated into the Egyptian mystery cult of Isis and Osiris. What a mess (LOL)


  13. Dear Dr. Ashraf Ezzat, you have been called a true historian and a truth-seeker. I must say that many of the information in your book are well-know to researchers for decades, myself included. However, there is one tiny and critical part of ancient Egypt’s history that seems to be purposefully omitted when writing about this ancient civilization.

    In your professional opinion what was the predominant ethnicity of the ancient Egypt, where they indigenous African (many shades of Black and Brown) as the overwhelming evidence suggests, or were they modern-Day Arabs like yourself (Essential european skin tone), Western and Alpine Europeans (Germans/British/Swedes, etc…), Red people, Aliens, or any other derivations? This question I assure you is not meant to be amusing, but one that carries serious meaning. One cannot accurately tell a story of a people, without identifying who they were.

    Secondly, are you familiar with the invention of the name Egypt? Clearly, as you’ve eloquently written about the many falsifications and lies about the Exodus and Pharaohs, you must be aware also that nowhere in the text of ancient Egypt did the name ‘EGYPT’ ever come up. Was were they called before the invention of the word, EGYPT?

    I would like your opinion on these critical and most vital of issues before I can call you a truth-seeker.

    Thank you. V. Wright.


    1. The Jewish historian Josephus wrote concerning the Israelite slaves in Egypt, “They [the Egyptian taskmasters] set them also to build pyramids.”

      Found an article on a website discussing this subject but I’ve come across other quotes concerning Israelites involved in the work of pyramid building, I’d have to hunt them out though, could take a few days lol. Just because pyramids are not mentioned in the Bible doesn’t mean the Exodus didn’t happen plus the Egyptians where adept at erasing parts of their history they didn’t like and there are plenty of examples of this and there are famous enough episodes that you should be able to find yourself.


      1. For most learned scholars ‘Josephus’ is absolutely not a reliable/credible source if we are to dig for the truth. Still some of his writings/records are extremely valuable in understanding how the ancient history of the Near East had been distorted by the then circle of power. But then we are talking about the Bible, not Jewish (duplicitous) historians. Unless of course you believe that ‘Josephus’ had a role in writing the Bible.


      2. Thanks for replying Dr. E.A., although there’s no reply button for me to reply directly to you.

        Then again most scholars didn’t think Herodotus was a reliable source and he received the title of the father of lies, if I recall correctly over time some of what he stated has been proved correct thus the conclusions I draw about scholarly opinion to be flawed sometimes, in fact the disbelief of such people has been proven incorrect in relation to other information concerning the ancient past I’ve came across. No I don’t believe Josephus had a hand in writing the Bible. Doesn’t Manetho state after the shepherd-kings came another set of people who where sojouners in Egypt, which corresponds to the peaceful sojourn related in the Old Testament. Also many years ago I think I came across information that the Arabs believed the Israelites also built the pyramids, I’d have to verify that but I’m sure a read that in one of the several hundred books I’ve read, so it could take a while.


      3. Plus the context of Exodus is about the Glorious Actions done by God for his people and not about the glory of Egypt thus mentioning pyramids would be irrelevant. The Exodus text is predominantly about God and the people He freed not the greatness of Egyptian architects or how big structures could be built. So it should not be surprising the pyramids are not mentioned in Exodus.


      4. First of all the Khemites did not write their history history is a greek created subject Egypt came out of a oral cultural tradition.


    2. V. Wright,
      I quite agree that many scholars doubt the historicity of the Exodus story, but when it comes to the geography of this notorious tale, all of them remain adamant that Egypt is where the story of Moses and Pharaoh took place. This is exactly where Ashraf Ezzat’s new research/book takes hold as quite novel/innovative. Besides, I haven’t heard of any scholar of Egyptology (be that orthodox or independent) saying that Egypt had NO PHARAOHS. As for the ethnicity of the ancient Egyptians, a somewhat lengthy topic, I will send you my thesis on it in an email. Thank you.


      1. Dr. Ezzat. Thank you for your scholarship on this very intriguing subject. While studying pre-dynastic Egypt I came along Khemitology. You must be familiar with Stephen Mehler and the Anwyan family. All of them state very clearly there were no pharaohs in Egypt. Perhaps your comment was only referring to Egyptologist. Would you care to clarify?


      2. Yes, I’m quite familiar with Stephen Mehler and Hakim’s work. But I’m afraid that Hakim’s thesis on the Israelites and their Exodus from Egypt runs counter to mine. I don’t believe that Egypt knew either Pharaoh or Moses, while Hakim and Mehler do.


    3. The word “Egypt” or “Aegyptiaca,” as written in Manetho’s history books, was most likely derived from the original word for the Copts, who today still form 10% of the Egyptian population. Egypt was therefore “Land of the Copts.” The word for the location of the Exodus was “Merse” according to Josephus, or “Misr,” in the Quran. Misr is an Akkadian word and the original meaning is a military outpost, where a governing body is established. Over time, even hundreds of years, that location could become a city-state. Today’s Egypt is called Misr in Arabic. The important factor, is not the Hellenized or Romanized name of Egypt, but the evidence, archaeological, linguistic, etc., that takes us to the correct locations. Too many people make the mistake of thrusting their own theories on the texts, and not allowing the texts to speak for themselves. The Quran never names the location of the Exodus as “Egypt.” It was Misr, which could be any military outpost, turned city-state, going back 5,000 years in an Akkadian-speaking world.

      As for the ethnicity of Egyptians, it was a melting pot of various peoples who settled there, particularly around the Delta, and that included Africans, Europeans, and Arabs.


      1. Your information couldn’t be more wrong, and I’m afraid this is the sort of propaganda sold by the same people who sold us the fake Exodus story. I patiently await Dr. Ezzat thesis to read his take on the issue. However, there is ABSOLUTELY no evidence of Europeans in Ancient Egypt, none whatsoever. In fact, the color differentiation is so vivid on those walls of ancient illustrations that–in over 6000 years of ancient Egypt illustration, there is not a single European type–not one.

        Dr. Hawass is guilty of intellectual negligence as many images we know today have been faked and altered on his watch. This deceptive Pseudo intelligentsia from the same people who have been sold nothing but lies about their actual history, which must align sadly with the ‘Master Race’ ideological nonsense. There were only two times in ancient Egypt when the ethnicity changed, the first was with the Hyksos Dynasty, and from imagery, they were more black than European, and the second was after the conquest by the Macedonian Alexander. The Hyksos had similar hair type and facial feature as the indigenous ancient Egyptians, and their dynasty only lasted 100 years, give or take. They erected no edifices of grandness that Egypt is know for, and most importantly, they adopted the traditions and cultures of those they conquered. Something which was repeated by the Macedonia Ptolemy Dynasty and Rome starting around 300 BC…

        Furthermore, the Europeans of today as we know, the blond and blue eye concept of whiteness did not appear anywhere in antiquity, not in entire Arabia, not even in ancient Greece. Please familiarize yourself with ancient Greece potteries–they are quite revealing. I’m European and very proud of my heritage, but what I will not do, out of supremacy ideology is to steal or adopt someone else’s history. I’m an academic, integrity, not racial hubris, is my honor code. Both the modern-day Jews and Europeans have cause irreparable damage to our human history out of plain supremacist ideology. It’s time to stop! Again, I patiently away Dr. Ezzat thesis, I’m certain it is worthy of the wait.

        Thank You. V. Wright.

    4. Checked that Arab belief, seems they believed the pyramids where a pre-flood construction. Saurid, seems he is equated with Hermes and Enoch.

      Anyway seems the Egyptian literature has a text that refers to the tradition of seven lean years in Egypt but I stress again seeing you ignored it, the Egyptians removed unwanted aspects of their history when it suited them and this is demonstrated several times by modern archaeology and it is no surprise there is no record of slaves successfully bettering there masters, Egyptians rewrote history when it suited them.


    5. Quite a response to my explanation of verifiable terminology! When I was referring to the ethnicity of today’s Egyptians, I was referring to the period after the Macedonians. I was also considering the period after the invasion of the Sea Peoples, whose material culture can be traced to the Adriatic. The Sea Peoples settled all along the eastern Mediterranean coastline of the Near East. Their influence could be felt during the last millennium BCE.

      You seem more interested in proving the racial composition of Egyptians going back, it seems, five thousand years, and are basing it on images found on walls of ancient structures. Of course those images show a more African ethnicity. I am an anthropologist. I do understand the ancient history of the Near East. Hopefully, you will get the answers you are seeking from Dr. Ashraf. A true scholar looks at all the evidence, not bits and pieces, and that evidence is not limited to Egypt.


      1. Your response proves my point. Imagine telling the story of Rome, and starting at the moment of the German Barbarian invasion. This is typical of European narrative driven by supremacy ideology. The Macedonia contributed NOTHING to ancient Egypt–nada! So, why are we in the western hemisphere so focused on them? That answer must be answered by you–to yourself. A scientist follows the evidence no matter where it leads. I will reserve my opinion about Dr. Ashraf after reading his thesis. Western version of history is a long list of lies and distortions propagated by western “academics.” We are now involve in the arduous process of correcting these intellectual fraud–as Dr. Ezzat himself has done with his book. Kudos to him.

        Before you accuse me of what my interest is, perhaps you should learn to follow the evidence. I’ve done so. It works wonders. Ancient Egypt is the contentious topic in human history, because Europeans, Jews, and Arabs work in unison to distort this very vital part of human history. It is the only part of human history that the above mentioned ethnic groups seem to disregard with the abundance and irrefutable amount of material evidence, by using nuanced words. You wrote, “Of course those images show a more African ethnicity,” a nuanced way saying they are not really African without really not saying it. From your argument, I would guess you are of European heritage, and thus, the thought of the most impressive and advanced civilization in human history being of what we know today as “black people” must irks you the wrong way as it did me, and many of us growing who learned these people were “monkeys on trees.”

        I have looked at the evidence thoroughly, and I will debate any academic on open forum who says otherwise. There is no doubt that ancient Egypt was of African origin, and African dominated until the invasion of the Macedonian. Everything we admire and cherish was built by them. The moment you are ready to fully absorb and accept this factual statement, you would adhere to the code of ethics we all swear by to follow the evidence, and not to skew fact to fit a narrative of our world view. The western civilization has recorded incredible achievement in the last 300 years, and would never allow anyone to take that away from us. We shouldn’t try to take away the achievements of others.

        Thank you. V. Wright

    6. Mr Wright, I have absolutely no idea of what you are talking about.. You are clearly reading something in my words that are not there. You assume I am Eurooean and have some sort of attitude of racial superiority against Egyptisns. This is a very bizarre response. Actually, I am of pure Near Eastern heritage, and agree with you that the distortion of history by the Jewish scribes in Palestine has done irreparable damage and the further distortions by the Byzantine Empire to the religious hustory of the Near East has done even more harm. My research is simply focused on cirrecting that. I have been researching this over twenty years and have written several books on the subject.

      Whatever you are talking about has no relevance to anything I have posted anywhere. Your accusations are seriously unfounded.


    1. Moses’ list of ten dos and don’ts are hardly the values Judaism were influenced by. Those dos and don’ts are to be found in almost every theology/faith on earth. Ancient Egypt for instance had 42 of them in the ‘Maat’ code of ethics (thousands of years before the tale of Moses). If we are to talk ‘comparative religion’ we will find the concept of the ‘afterlife’ is at the root of ancient Egyptian beliefs, whereas the Judaic cult and dogma primarily hinged on land grab through genocidal military raids (that do not follow any moral commandments, let alone that of Moses). That’s typical of the violent tribal traditions and culture that gave birth to ‘Judaism’. Form my perspective, the comparison here is STRIKINGLY implausible (LOL)


      1. moshe brought the “communions” with the commandments.They are in the Essene Good news of peace book 1to 4. And if we followed the communions we would have had Peace on Earth. Besides thats the old covenant and now people are doing miracles in 2016 in the name of Jesus…it takes no proof to be a skeptic.


    1. According to our research/book, there is an uncanny correlation between the Jewish distortion of the history of the Ancient Near East, especially that of Egypt, and the destruction of the legendary Library of Alexandria. We dig deeper into that issue in our book.


  14. It is much to chew and I conclude that reading accounts of writers whose persuasion can cause catastrophic emotion and mental issues to one’s thinking and stability. “Africans” of today are living with myths and for greed and self serving plots. Why such secrecy..it’s evil and atrocious. Thanks Dr Ashraf Ezzat for your research and documenting through your books.


  15. Are you familiar with the research in this documentary? Patterns of Evidence: Exodus
    https://youtu.be/2assFIyLInE It concedes research by the writers of a book & doc called the Bible Unearthed pretty much proved Exodus didn’t occur but here is the rub! This new research strongly states the Exodus happened but it happened earlier than Rameses time which is the period Biblical scribes placed it. This new research points to the strong possibility that the Exodus occurred but not at the time or in the way the mythologized Exodus story in the Bible Indicates.

  16. Dr. Ezzat, while you are correct to question the story of the Exodus from Egypt, you should be aware that the majority of archaeologists already know this. The entire history of the Near East does not match the biblical version of events. The Quran confirms that the Jewish scribes who wrote the narrative, took the stories out of their correct location and chronology. There was an exodus, but it was not from today’s “Egypt.” During the third millennium BCE, there was a civilization in southern Iraq that was connected to the earliest civilizations in Egypt. In fact, ancient Egyptian texts claim that southern Iraq, the lands of the Sumerians, was where their ancestors began. It is not a coincidence that writing commenced at the same time among the Sumerians and Egyptians, since they lived side-by-side.

    As for the Israelites, they were originally Arabian shepherd-Kings who gradually settled in Mesopotamia when drought and rivers dried in the Arabian Peninsula. The stories of the patriarchs are confirmed in the Quran, with a huge difference from the biblical version. The prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) had an Akkadian name, meaning “friend of God.” The Hebrew texts claim that was his name. The Quran places the prophet Yussef (Joseph) in upper Mesopotamia, and the Hebrew texts give him an Akkadian title in an Akkadian world, because the Akkadians were the true Hebrews. The prophet Musa (Moses) had an Akkadian name, and the Quran places him in the territories that include the northern Euphrates and the entire Persian Gulf. If you haven’t seen it in the Quran, then you are not looking at it carefully. Hebrew, like Aramaic, evolved from the original Akkadian. Even the name Adam was an Akkadian name.

    As for Palestinian Jerusalem, it was not Suleiman’s (Solomon’s) Jerusalem. That one existed in Mesopotamia and was destroyed. In the fourteenth century BCE, Palestinian Jerusalem already existed and had strong ties to Egypt. It became the second Jerusalem. The name Jerusalem is actually a Sumerian name made up of two Sumerian words. The Prophet Ibrahim did exist, and was obviously fluent in both Sumerian and Akkadian. The evidence lies in one passage of the Quran. The biblical stories are nonsense, but they were based on true historic events that took place in Mesopotamia. I published a book on the subject in 2004, titled “The Exodus in the Quran,” which places the Exodus in ancient Sumer and pinpoints the exact location of the events. The Arabic translation was published in Syria in 2010. The Quran’s version of the biblical narrative matches perfectly with archaeological discoveries. Unfortunately, no one is looking carefully at the Quran.

    Was there a conspiracy to alter religious history over thousands of years? Absolutely. I wrote about it in detail in my book, “Unveiling the Messiah in the Dead Sea Scrolls.” If you think the stories of the Old Testament were distorted, you should read how far the Byzantine Church went during the third century, to hide the truth about Christianity’s “Jesus,” Was he the Messiah ‘Isa mentioned in the Quran? Not at all. The biblical version was based on a few episodes in the life of the real Messiah ‘Isa, but once again, the Jews of Palestine distorted the truth, and the Roman Empire found it convenient to go along with it. Was the real Messiah ‘Isa born in Palestine? Not at all. I take the reader to the exact location of his birth.



    1. Hi Ms. King,

      Thank you for your valuable comment. Is your first book, “The Exodus in the Quran”, available in an e-book format? Your second one seems to be.



      1. No, the Exodus in the Quran is only available in soft cover. I first published that book in 2004 for a select audience. It was the first volume of a two volume book. The second part was “Unveiling the Messiah in the Dead Sea Scrolls.” I then reprinted the first volume in 2007, and e-books were not an option at the time. By the time I had the second volume printed, I used the present publisher because they were ahead of other publishers in making books available as e-books at an inexpensive price. The Exodus in the Quran is available on Amazon.


    2. Assalaamu ‘Alayki,

      For some reason, I do not see a reply option to your reply to me and thus, I will reply here if you do not mind.

      “No, the Exodus in the Quran is only available in soft cover. I first published that book in 2004 for a select audience. It was the first volume of a two volume book.

      -> Dully noted. To clarify, when you say that you “reprinted the first volume in 2007”, did you make changes to the version of 2004 or was it just a reprint for more copies? On a related note, when I order it on Amazon, I assume I will received the 2007 version?

      Best regards,


      1. When I reprinted the first volume in 2007, the only change was the title of the book. There were changes to the second volume on the Messiah. I added more information that included scholarly studies that were published during the interim period. All the studies kept confirming the conclusions that I had arrived at.


    3. I note:

      “The exodus in the Quran” first printed in 2004 and re-printed in 2007
      “Unveiling the Messiah in the Dead Sea Scrolls” in 2012

      I look forward to reading both.

      Best regards,


      1. It is no surprise that some (not all) Israeli archaeologists still try to squeeze any evidence they find to justify the Exodus out of Egypt in the biblical time frame. Their efforts are no doubt rooted in their desire to justify the creation of their state, based on a mythical biblical narrative. Dayan mentions, for instance, the writings of Ipuwer, who laments the overthrow of Egyptian rulers during a revolution in Egypt, as evidence of an Israelite conquest in the biblical time frame of 1300 BCE. What she doesn’t tell her audience is that Ipuwer’s original text was written about a thousand years earlier, and the one discovered was rewritten in a more modern time frame. Papyrus texts had to be rewritten so as to preserve them over centuries, a common practice among scribes. A revolution did take place in Egypt by foreign conquerors around 2300 BCE, and those were the armies of the Prophet Musa (Moses), who conquered all the lands from the Euphrates to the Nile (promised to the seed of Ibrahim/Abraham). The Israelites were all over the Fertile Crescent and Egypt. They ruled Egypt as pharaohs during the century of Hyksos rule (1650-1550 BCE). They were not slaves in today’s Egypt. When the Egyptians evicted them, they settled in Palestine and are the ancestors of today’s Palestinians. Archaeological discoveries all confirm that the Israelites were part of the Canaanite world for over a thousand years before the biblical time frame. Linguistic studies all confirm this. Dayan and archaeologists like her are living in a dream world, hoping to reshape history to suit their own political agendas. The armies of the second Musa (Moses) re-conquered the same territory, from the Euphrates to the Nile, 1400 years ago, establishing the Caliphate. The majority of Israelites became Muslim, fulfilling biblical prophecies and Hebrew literature.

  17. As best I can determine, all mainstream archeologists (including those who are Jewish) agree that there is not a shred of evidence that there were ever any “Israelites” in Egypt during biblical times. In the book of Exodus, Egypt appears to be little more than a backdrop for Moses to perform a series of miracles and feats of magic – at the behest of an angry god. The story has all the ingredients of mythology, and is simply to unbelievable to be anything else.

    All mythology is written according to a formula, which involves using the names of people, places and things (sometimes real, usually fictitious) to symbolize and represent valuable information which is hidden beneath the superficial narrative. This hidden information usually involves scientific principles relating to astronomy, mathematics or other information they wish to keep secret – such as a formula for making gunpowder, etc. In ancient times, then as now, knowledge was power – and warfare was constant. The priestly class kept a nation’s technological knowledge recorded for their own use, but secret from their enemies, by use of a duplicitous writing style to compose mythologies.

    The practice of composing mythology goes back to the very beginnings of recorded history. For example one of the oldest Sumerian gods, named Enki, interacted with people only through his 2-faced “minister” named Isimu. Isimu is a fictitious name the author of the story about Enki uses to describe himself, and the “2-faced” description of Isimu means the composition has 2 different meanings. In other words, the hidden meanings of mythology are not meant to be understood by the common man – indeed, quite the opposite. Since the Book of Exodus is clearly written as mythology, there is no pretense of openly conveying any truthful, factual information. The useful information is cloaked, hidden beneath the superficial narrative of the story. None of the people named in the Book of Exodus are real people and never existed. Their names are used to symbolize something entirely different. I would have to do some research to be sure, but my first impulse is that “Pharaoh” is simply a re-naming of the Egyptian god Thoth – though it will also symbolize other things such as perhaps the Zodiac and precession of the equinoxes, etc.

    Scripture tells us (fictitious) Abraham came from the city of UR, and from that we can know that Abraham is a re-naming of the patron god of UR – whose name in the Akkadian language is “Sin.” The Sinai Peninsula, Mount Sinai, etc. are named after the god Sin. Sin was called “Lord of Wisdom,” same as the Egyptian god Thoth. Thoth had the epithet “Thrice Great” (the word “great” is a metaphor which means “the sun”). The written symbol of the god Sin was a sun on top of a tripod. Clearly Abraham is the god Sin, and Sin is the god Thoth. If followers of Christ are called Christians, then followers of the god Sin would be called “Sinners.” Now, what do “sinners” do? They write mythology – or said another way, they write scripture. The “seed of Abraham” is the seed of Sin, and the seed of Sin is the seed of Thoth. The seed of Abraham are the “Sinners.” The seed of Thoth are also sinners. What I’m explaining here is that the Book of Exodus, like all the rest of the Old Testament, was written by Egyptian sinners called the Priests of On. On was a town located 10 miles northeast of modern Cairo, called by the Greeks Heliopolis, which means “City of the Sun.” The “seed of Abraham”, “Children of Israel”, etc. are fictitious names made up and used by the Priests of On to describe themselves.

    Now, are the pyramids mentioned in the Book of Exodus? Well, the Great Pyramid of Khufu is a mountain of stone, literally a man-made mountain. So the word “mountain” is a nice metaphor to symbolize the great pyramid. Are there any mountains mentioned in Exodus? Mount Sinai immediately comes to mind, and since it is named after the god Sin, this name already creates suspicion of being metaphorical. To take this line of thinking further, we can use a little help:

    (Matthew 17:20) “. . . . I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain “move from here to there” and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you ”

    To gain anything useful from this verse, a riddle must be solved: “how do you move a mountain?” Well, that’s pretty easy: you simply re-name it. For example, if you change the name of the Pyramid of Khufu to Mount Sinai, you will have moved it. And if you change the name of Mount Sinai to The Pyramid of Khufu, you will have moved it back. Now, who would be capable of “hiding” the Pyramid of Khufu? The “mustard seeds.” Due to its bright yellow color, mustard is a metaphor which symbolizes the sun. And a “seed” is one of those Priests of On. “Mustard seed” is a metaphor used to symbolize a Priest of On, and “Mount Sinai” could be and probably is the Great Pyramid.

    The Book of Exodus didn’t simply appear as if by magic out of thin air – it had to have been composed and written by a real, living human being. My best guess is that Exodus was actually written by Imhotep, who was the most prominent High Priest of On. Imhotep takes on the name of “Moses,” and interjects himself into the story-line of Exodus while he is writing it. In brief, Exodus is a story about Imhotep (Moses) in opposition against the god Thoth (Pharaoh) – where Imhotep (seems to) ultimately prevail. And if you are the one writing the story, why not make yourself appear to win the contest? Referring again back to Matthew 17:20, if you are a “mustard seed,” nothing for you is impossible.


    1. I opined that Moses is a characterization of Imhotep, which allows the author of the story to enter into his own narrative and play around with Thoth. But everything has 2 meanings. Moses is portrayed as a law-giver, teacher of how to worship the gods, instructor of what to eat, etc. This portrayal is also the description of Osiris. So Exodus may be better understood as a contest between Osiris (Moses) and Thoth (Pharaoh).


    2. Enki’s author is ok, Thoth is quite right…but when talking about Moshe or Abraham, nah!!! they ven never existed. Notice some bias here!!!!


      1. Thanks! It may take hundreds of years to uncover but research such as yours shows that the truth usually can be discovered. Your work obviously has vast implications for how Israel behaves towards Palestinians today which is of course sickening in extreme especially given the support Israel gets from UK and world governments.


  18. another piece of compelling evidence to add to the growing mountain that already exists to show, amazingly, that the most fundamental truths we have been forced to believe since birth are often mistakes or lies.


  19. Escape from the trials and tribulations of Egypt means escape from the creators commandments, in other words the pursuit of crime in general and a disregard for ones fellow human beings.


  20. So Jewish history has no foundation in the land called Egypt, information I came to a few years ago in old books like Lost Light wherein Eygpt or the mound, mountain is said to mean the material realm
    where the human suffers trials and tribulations in the service of the creator. Is it possible that what we now think of as Eygpt was the first outpost of mankind on this planet? Where did the word Egypt come from? In the series of books by AT Fomenko and company the words Israelite and Jew have entirely different meanings than the commonly thought.


      1. I’ll read it again, I’ve forgotten as per the mentioned concussion, I hope, this will be the third time. I wouldn’t have asked you to give away the plot for free under normal circumstances. Thankyou for your tolerance. insert smiley


    1. How I wish we could see your work discussed more. Maybe, just maybe, with a little bit of acknowledgement that the “truth” of the Bible needs to be taken with a spoonful of salt, we could have a more rational world.
