A lot of good stuff here for anyone interested in ancient Egypt. Share: Rate:
Can you either confirm or debunk this? It sounds good but has a slightly fishy aftertaste.
Honestly, it’s hard for me to trust anything put out by Simcha Jacobivici. Not exactly a good track record. I speak here in terms of his USE of the material. The text would be real if it’s published in JNES, but note that it isn’t the authors making any claims about the exodus. One has to assume, for example, that the Hebrews somehow couldn’t tell Sinai in / near Midian (Exod 3:1-3) from Thera! They really weren’t geographical morons. It’s no surprise that the Egyptians would interpret an eruption as an act of a god — everyone would have back then. Egyptians attributed all sorts of natural disasters to gods. I’d look the article up, but my journal databases only have JNES up to 2008. This article is 2012.
