Notes

Exodus 1:1-7 These are the names of the sons of Israel who came to Egypt with Jacob, each with his household: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,Dan and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.All the descendants of Jacob were seventy persons; Joseph was already in Egypt. Then Joseph died, and all his brothers and all that generation.

Joseph’s home and burial ground, with his pyramid tomb and 11 other monument tombs.

But the people of Israel were fruitful and increased greatly; they multiplied and grew exceedingly strong, so that the land was filled with them.

~According to Markmonides, Their fruitful increase included gentile inclusion. 

Exodus 1:8-12 Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph.And he said to his people, “Behold, the people of Israel are too many and too mighty for us.Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, lest they multiply, and, if war breaks out, they join our enemies and fight against us and escape from the land.”Therefore, they set taskmasters over them to afflict them with heavy burdens. They built for Pharaoh Store cities, Pithom and Raamses.But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and the more they spread abroad. And the Egyptians were in dread of the people of Israel.

 

~Avaris, is the city under the city of Raamses where the Israelites dwelt.

 

~Senusret II, 12th Dynasty1897–1878 BCwas likely the Pharaoh whom Joseph served. Senusret II developed the Fayyum (Bahr Yussef) as a major agricultural resource during his reign.

 

~But who was “the King who didn’t know Joseph”? In the 15th Dynasty around the mid 1600’s the Hyksos began to rule for around a century. Markmonides suggests that the Hyksos were the kings who troubled the children of Israel.

 

~Note: The mention above that the Israelites built the city of Raamses is an edit in later copies to clarify where the children of Israel were as the city of Avaris was gone and buried and its location would not have been understood by the readers of the time. This has caused many to reject the bible narrative or given justification to rejecting G-D and his word. Sadly, scholars are aware of this literary device in other applications but ignore it here.    

 

Exodus 1:15-16 Then the king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other Puah,“When you serve as midwife to the Hebrew women and see them on the birthstool, if it is a son, you shall kill him, but if it is a daughter, she shall live.”

 

Exodus 1:22Then Pharaoh commanded all his people, “Every son that is born to the Hebrews you shall cast into the Nile, but you shall let every daughter live.”

 

“To the Hebrews” is not in Samaritan, Septuagint, Targum texts. There doesn’t seem to be strong evidence for child sacrifice in Egypt, by Egyptians worshiping their gods. Not that they didn’t occasionally sacrifice a person, but it doesn’t seem to be children and not regularly. When done, it is believed to be adult criminals who where sacrificed/executed. So, I suspect this is the work of the Western Sematic Hyksos (Canaanite, Phoenician, exedra). Coincidently, The rule of the Hyksos lasted around 100 years and the time span from the birth of Moses to the Judgement and destruction of Egypt is 80 years according to bible time line.

 

Exodus 2:1-2 Now a man from the house of Levi went and took as his wife a Levite woman.The woman conceived and bore a son, and when she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him three months.

 

Exodus 2:10When the child grew older, she brought him to Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. She named him Moses, “Because,” she said, “I drew him out of the water.”

 

Exodus 2:11-12 One day, when Moses had grown up, he went out to his people and looked on their burdens, and he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his people. He looked this way and that, and seeing no one, he struck down the Egyptian and hid him in the sand.

 

~Familiar? A just couple has a son who would become the deliverer and law giver who had to be hidden to save his life. Then as an adult he tries to deliver his people only to be rejected and goes away from them for a time but returns to take them out of their bondage to bring them into the Promised Land where they dwell with G-D who led them through the wilderness.   ~No? Just me?

 

~This “Exodus” is the template pattern for “Deliverance”. As it was then so it will be. So where are we in the pattern?

 

Exodus 2:16-19 Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters, and they came and drew water and filled the troughs to water their father’s flock.When they came home to their father Reuel, he said, “How is it that you have come home so soon today?”They said, “An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds and even drew water for us and watered the flock.”

 

~Reuel, had no sons. This is why he would later ask that Moses not circumcise his son, that Reuel would adopt him, and his grandson would be his heir.

 

~Egyptian, only in appearance, as was Joseph and the Hyksos.      Also, the Messiah has appeared to many to be a gentile.  

 

Exodus 2:23-24 During those many days the king of Egypt died, and the people of Israel groaned because of their slavery and cried out for help. Their cry for rescue from slavery came up to God.And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.

 

Exodus 3:1-2 Now Moses was keeping the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro, the priest of Midian, and he led his flock to the west side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God.And the angel of the LORD appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush was burning, yet it was not consumed.

 

Exodus 3:7-8 Then the LORD said, “I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters. I know their sufferings,and I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land to a good and broad land, a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites.

 

Exodus 3:10Come, I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring my people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.”

 

Exodus 3:19-20 But I know that the king of Egypt will not let you go unless compelled by a mighty hand. So, I will stretch out my hand and strike Egypt with all the wonders that I will do in it; after that he will let you go.
