The story of Joseph and Moses in Egypt is under attack by modern scholars who are proposing that it did not, in fact, take place. They cannot find any authoritative and substative evidence (historical records and archeological evidence) corraborating the story of THE EXODUS they claim it is fiction, a made up to make Israel look great.
Therefore it behooves us, as believers, to search for credible evidence of the Exodus and footprints in the sands of time that authenticate the story of Exodus. Why? Because we are exhorted to ...
"Earnestly contend for the faith once delivered to the saints." (Jude 1:3) and
"Always be ready to give an answer to every man who asks are reason of the hope that is in you." (1 Peter 3:15)
We do not have all the evidence nor do we understand all mysteries hidden in the sands of time, but what we do know if for us to use to proclaim the truth of God's Word.
Deuteronomy 29:29 "The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law."
Throughout our studies in Exodus we will be looking at physical, historical, and archeological evidence that corraborates the story. There is much evidence that has been discarded by modern scholors for a variety of reasons, but mostly because the intellectual establishment has an agenda to disprove the Bible, not to prove it. Therefore anything that seems to prove the Exodus story is discarded as unreliable. Why? Because just as in Creation and the Flood story, to prove it means that there is a God who above and a judgment to come. Join us in the search for JOSEPH in the sands of time.
LESSON DOCUMENTS TO PRINT OUT
These are unedited documents and studies I use in my sermon preparation. They will enhance your study of the Word. Print them out and study them. This way we can give you much more than we can in our Videos or in our live classes.
We suggest you print out each of these DOCUMENTS and put them into a three-ring binder for easy access and reference.
LINKS TO FURTHER READING Not required for our class discussions.
Was Joseph Imhotep? There is a character who matches all the critera of the elevated position of Joseph in Genesis 37-50. His name is Imhotep and he served under Pharaoh Djoser. later in our class sessions we will present several parallels of Joseph to Imhotep, and concrete physical evidence that authenticates this information. In the meantime, prepare ahead by reading the arguments.
