Ralph Ellis demonstrates that the Tempest Stele of Ahmose I contains an account of the biblical plagues and the resulting Exodus from Egypt. This again demonstrates that the Israelite leaders were the Hyksos pharaohs of Lower Egypt, and so the biblical Jacob was probably the Hyksos pharaoh Jacoba. Thus the biblical plagues were a real event, caused by the island of Thera (Santorini) exploding, and it caused a historically documented civil war and great exodus from Egypt. However, if these links between Egyptian and Israelite history are true, then it is possible that Mt Sinai is actually the Israelite name for the Great Pyramid of Giza. The sacred mountain was actually a pyramid.

PAGES 1&2 Origins
Ralph Ellis commences this book with a clandestine night-time decent into a rock cave on Mount Sinai. I was impressed because I knew that the traditional Mount Sinai has no cave but knew that the real Mt Sinai (Jabel Lawez) in Midian, now Saudi Arabia did have a cave however it was not as large as this cave was described as having and was on its west face not the northern face. You can check this feature for yourselves on Google Earth. So I skipped to chapter 6 on Sinai to find out where he had located Mt. Sinai. There I was to discover that he claims that Mt. Sinai was the Great Pyramid at Giza which has none of the boulders and rocks or the cave that page one and two describe

Here Mr. Ellis says that:
"a. They had a vast army. (Abraham had 318 army officers and about 10,000 men.)".
In Genesis 14:14-15 it says ”And when Abram heard that his brother [Nephew Lot] was taken captive, he led forth his (חָנִיךְ chaniyk) trained men, born in his house, three hundred and eighteen, (אֱלִיעֶזֶר) and pursued as far as Dan. And he divided himself against them by night, he and his servants, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus.” (Genesis 14:14-15 JPS)
Apart from Abraham’s relationship to Lot not being correct. (Abraham was his Nephew not his brother). I suspect that the number “318” may also be incorrect because in the next chapter Genesis 15:2 it says: “And Abram said, O Lord GOD, what can You give me, seeing that I shall die childless, and the one in charge of my household is Dammesek Eliezer (אֱלִיעֶזֶר) ?” (Genesis15:2 JPS)

More facts here than in the Bibles (Pentateuch and Paulianity), he does an amazing job.
Only one or two minor errors in his theories in this book however these are mostly cleared up in his other book; Eden in Egypt.

pictorial displays and new, corrected translation of various words. There is no doubt left as to how history was subtlety altered or certain misread. Ellis again does a masterful job and pits this latest version of events squarely against other recent authors books and explanations. I am greatly impressed by actually viewing each pictorial into its 'proper' translation. The finale of the secret name and meaning of GOD is what I've been looking for a long time. There is also a great comparison of the two antagonists of Upper vs Lower Egypt realms and who was who here (the south vs the north,if you will). The Hyksos are included in his analysis, also.
A must read for everyone.
I wish Ralph would have included the Mycannaean exodus in this tome but the three he did review were excellent. I believe there were four exodus' and would love to read Ralphs study of the Mycennaean ship exodus with the preponderant similitude to the biblical furniture of the holy place in their use... .
If you like reading historical fiction, tangential stories from the Bible or other speculative and unscrupulous authors, blow your money away on this and other Ellis pulp.
