Book Description

15 Sep 2007
What Do History and Archaeology Really say about the origins of ancient Israel? Although the bible says that Israel's formative history took place in ancient Egypt, biblical scholars and Egyptologists have steadfastly refused to explore the role of Egyptian history and literature on the origins of Jewish religion. The Moses Mystery attempts to set the record straight. Based on extensive research into biblical and Egyptian history, archaeology, literature and mythology Greenberg argues that the first Israelites were Egyptians, followers of the monotheistic teachings of Pharaoh Akhenaten. Some of the many intriguing revelations in The Moses Mystery include: -Ancient Egyptian records specifically identify Moses as Akhenaten's chief priest and describe the Exodus as the result of a civil war for control over the Egyptian throne - Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were characters from Egyptian mythology - The Twelve Tribes of Israel never existed
--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Complicated yet Compelling! 16 May 1998
By A Customer
The Bible Myth is a compelling theory and Mr. Greenberg's research was quite thought provoking. I am a student of history and probably have a better than average knowledge of Egyptian history, yet I found myself quite lost on several occasions. It would be to the reader's advatage to have a general knowledge of Egyptian history especially between the Pharoahs of Akahanaten and Ramases II. If Bible or Egyptian studies interest you this is a truly fascinating book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Patients is a Virtue 3 April 2003
The Moses Mystery by Gary Greenberg is intriging to say the least. Although the information he has presented is not totally new. Anyone who has an interets in the Biblical Data and who wants to understand where the information has come from then with some patience and persistance this will be a good read. Many questions are asked or posed and some of the answers do not sit beside the popular View. The Moses Mystery offers a different view of the biblical and ancient Egyptian data it offers some possible solutions to the many unanswered quetions we have been led to believe. Some basic knowledge of African History would be useful as the information Greenburg presents gets very deep, but after reading "The Moses Mystery" it will have you searching for more information. Some useful book titles in the same vein are " Ancient Egypt Light of the world by Gerald Massey, "Echoes of the old Dark Land" by Charles Finch "Astrology of the Old Testament" "Dawn Of Conscious" by Gerald Massey.
Some questions that have never been answered in church will be answered in these books. Greenburgs book "The Moses Mystery" adds a slightly different perspective to the African origin of the Bible and the relevance ancient Egypt has played.

4.0 out of 5 stars logical theory of Moses 5 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Moses Mystery advances a most interesting theory of the identity of Moses by connecting Moses with the monoteistic pharaoh Aknaten. Gary Greenberg argues most convincingly, and it makes sense to me, but I don't know how well his theory goes down with the establishment. It can be somewhat difficult to follow all the names and dates without a thorough understanding of bible geneaology and egyptology. Gary Greenberg seems well at home with both. But I could have used some good overview charts to help me not get lost.
