    Hey, by the way.................that time line is just before Joseph!!!

    "The team also found a stela, or limestone tablet, of Pharaoh Amenemhat III, who ruled between 1844-1797 B.C., inscribed with all five of his royal names. This discovery provided further evidence that the items date to Egypt's Middle Kingdom period."

    1723 BC

    Joseph was 17 years old when his brothers sold him into slavery in Egypt. [Gen 37:1]

    Link to Biblical time line!

    Joseph is a character in the B*ble ( :laugh:) who sarts out life as a sheperd, with cruel brothers. His brothers sell him into slavery, and he goes on to do some great things in life after slavery. *Recall the story of Joseph's coat of many colors?*

    Footnote:

    [​IMG]
    David Freeman at Joseph's Tomb in Shechem
    Joseph's
    Tomb





    "In the last verses of Genesis it is told how Joseph adjured his relatives to take his bones back to Canaan whenever God should restore them to their original home, and in Joshua 24:32 it is told how his body was indeed brought to Palestine and buried in Shechem. For centuries there was a tomb at Shechem reverenced as the Tomb of Joseph (see photo to left). A few years ago the tomb was opened. It was found to contain a body mummified according to the Egyptian custom, and in the tomb, among other things, was a sword of the kind worn by Egyptian officials."
    -- Prophets, Idols and Diggers

    There are geologists who maintain that there are water marks on the Sphinx indicating that at one time it may have been surrounded by water. A book I highly recommend if you are into this sort of thing is Fingerprints of the Gods by Graham Hancock.
