There were Hebrew people in Egypt before the Exodus.
Updated: Nov 15, 2022
I have read and watched a lot of things that say there is no evidence that the history recorded in the book of Exodus happened. It is not accurate, it was made up, or it was written much later than we think.
I am not sure what they mean; are they looking to dig up a hand painted sign that says “Moses was here”? That will never happen! Why? Most of the stuff from that time has perished, we can only find little bits and pieces of what there was.
One interesting piece of evidence is the “Brooklyn Papyrus”. What is papyrus? It is a piece of paper (or what they had as paper at the time-it is much more durable that today’s paper) with a list of about 90 servants, most of whom are women.
In this list are some Hebrew names. One of those names is “Shiphrah”. "So what" some may say. Here is what it says in Exodus: “Then the king of Egypt spoke to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other was named Puah;” Exodus 1:15.
This document is dated to around 1,700 years ago. This is before the Exodus. This means there were Hebrew people in Egypt. The bible says the same thing. That is evidence!
For more on this kind of stuff you may want to get a book written by Doctor Titus Kennedy, “Unearthing the Bible”. In it he lists 101 archaeological items that support the text of the bible.
I will be exploring some more of these in the future.
