Product Description


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.

Tempest & Exodus by Ralph Ellis

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

PAGE 5 Origins
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)

אֱלִיעֶזֶר 'Eliezer as a number.

This is one of my facourite books - it is full of great thinking and research and as always, Ralph Ellis is joining more dots that most other historians. Nobody can get it 100% right but Ralph gets further than most.
More facts here than in the Bibles (Pentateuch and Paulianity), he does an amazing job.

This book has many shocking elements to it, however just when you think Ralph's ideas are a bit radical once again the evidnce is plain to see. Translating the bible from hebrew to ancient egyptian reveals much, however a logical assesment of the order of events, and comparisons to historical evidence also leads to inescapable conclusions that will have you smiling.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars for Mostly Cohesive Reasoning, Without Guarantee of Truth 23 Jan. 2008
By Bonam Pak - Published on
Format: Paperback
The sequel to Jesus: Last of the Pharoahs is more reasonable than the former. Mostly, because Ralph Ellis concentrates on one period of time only and takes more time to reason about this single issue. It is about the volcano's eruption on (Greek) Thera/Santorini playing catalyst for the religious strife within ancient Egypt, leading to the Hyksos' exodus(es). Prominently featured is the identification of Biblical Mt. Sinai with the Great Pyramid of Giza. Which functions both, as the template for the portable ark of the covenant of the Jews and circling procession like around today's Kabaa (to be precise, a different pyramid is suggested for the latter tradition). All of which sounds..., well... more than a bit unusual. The reasoning of the author merits attention, however, maybe only to be found out later that it was important for the way to "the truth" than actually representing the last word on everything touched.

I read the 2nd revised edition of 2006 (of the original book of 2000) and I advise to read the respective latest edition, as the author revises his books frequently. As such, some of my and others' criticism may get revised in later editions.

The major problem with Ralph Ellis' books is that they predominantly depent on linguistics as the basis for his hypotheses. On the one hand, this methodology offers largely untapped opportunities for revelations from the perspective of the current lack of historical knowledge about those Imes (times). On the other hand, these hypotheses should get confirmed by other means, which this book does a little bit more than other works of the author, yet still not sufficiently. For a simple reason: Linguistics offer a potential minefield for folk etymologies. Additionally, Ralph Ellis is very liberal in averring connections and changing words to fit each other. He will be right at times, but hardly all the way. He also likes to find proof for this theories, never to be wrong in the end. That is very suspicious in itself, smacking of constructivism, for the odds are slim that a scientist is right about his initial assumptions all the time. Even though I have to say, this book currently reads as mostly comprehendable.

Mostly means not all the time. One example for his falling for an folk etymology is his reproduction of the historic legend that the croissant is derived from Hungarian bakers thwarting a conquering attempt of the Budapest besieging Turks, celebrating themselves with a food product in the form of the Islamic crescent. This goes back to a supposed event of 1686. Unfortunately for this legend, this wasn't known before 1948, when Alfred Gottschalk wrote that in a book. Which was totally fabricated. As can be seen by the fact that 10 years previously he wrote the same story in another book ("Larousse gastronomique"), but this time placing the events in Austrian Vienna three years previously. In reality, the croissant, which is supposed to be derived from the crescent, hasn't been heard of in France before the 19th century. And in Austria the template for croissants has been known many centuries before any Turk army appeared on the horizon. Ironically maybe connected to even earlier monastery bakers celebrating Easter with this product looking like horns of an animal, as the original Austrian/German name suggests - which would have been interesting for Ralph Ellis to find/construct some other connection to ancient Egypt. But I do not necessarily want to encourage him any further... This paragraph by no means debunks the entire book, as Ellis' hypotheses do not depent the croissant. It is just that anything whatsoever I know about which Ralph Ellis writes about in his books, he gets wrong without further question. Which makes me wonder about the things he writes, nobody else knows anything about. In other words: I think most in this book sounds plausible, but everything should be checked independently. Even Ellis himself corrects his previous books. For example, in Thoth: Architect of the Universe he locates Atlantis in the Atlantic. In this book, he corrects himself in locating Atlantis among the Greek islands. And in later books, such as in Cleopatra to Christ (Jesus was the Great Grandson of Cleopatra) / Scota, Egyptian Queen of the Scots (Ireland and Scotland were founded by an Egyptian Queen) [Two Books in One] he suddenly turns his most prominent theory over that the Hyksos were Egyptians without any migratory background. Simply because new theories of his collide with his former ones. Simply, because, again, he likes to prove his theories by finding the corresponding/constructed evidence. He should revise all of his books more frequently, I may offer... The positive aspect of this is that he himself is showing that prolonged reasoning and research leads to ever new insights and even not quite correct theories are necessary for progress.

By the way: Atlantis???

His reasoning about Sodom and Gomorrha doesn't grow stronger in this book than in the prequel. This time he wants to derive "Sodom" from fornication. Whatever, but here's the message: The original theology of that story is not about any sexual matters whatsoever, it's about greed and not sharing a bit of one's accumulated wealth, going so far as to maltreat any potential one in need.

The bottom line is: This book is worth reading, just don't ingrain anything in it as incontrovertible. The sequel in this series is Solomon, Falcon of Sheba: The Tombs of King David, King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba Discovered (original title).

I enjoy Ellis' books because of his research and what he uncovers goes against the grain of so-called experts who base their information on recycled ignorance. For anyone who wants another side of history, this is a great one. Bettye Johnson, award-winning author, Secrets of the Magdalene Scrolls.

3.0 out of 5 stars if you like bible/egypt history read this 4 Dec. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
the book gets into different things that could explain the old testament supernatural happenings and possible mistakes in the translations of egyptian writings.that the hebrews were at first invaders of upper egypt and had their own short lived dynasty which led to civil war,then agreed to move out of the land.and that at the same time the volcano- mt.thera,in the greek islands area exploded causing darkness,famine,freak storms and alot of ash fallout.the author's research is good and he finds alot of new science studies that back the volcano, and archeology proofs that the hebrews were not as they appeared in the traditional old testament.if your into this stuff it's worth getting.i say this from some knowledge on the issue.i have read many books on the history of the bible,including some very controversial fringe stuff.enjoy!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Tempest to Exodus 2 Mar. 2014
By Al Powers, Genie - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Another great story with a modern translation, correctly done, if I may so state, to interpret the various Egyptian pictorial writings as presented in a historical, one by one fashion. Thera, Mt Sinai (the Great Pyramid), the Ark, Exodus, etc. all pinpointed with such
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars More truth than the Bilble 19 Nov. 2010
By Seeker - Published on
Format: Paperback
Ralph Ellis never ceases to amaze us with his highly right-brained yet scholarly "joining of the dots".
There are very few facts about this area, and many of them obfuscated by conventional historians clinging to their flawed careers.
Ralph's books are a complete blast of sunlight and once you accept that NOBODY can get any of this 100% right, you realise there are more facts in his books than in all the collective religious books on the planet. The Old testament is a curious mix of deeply encoded esoteric messages and a re-writing of history, and the New Testament has been brutally and cynically altered an molded. Other religious books carry the same mix of corruption, spin, dogma, and almost NO facts.
Bravo to Mr. Ellis for trying to put some factual perspective onto this subjective stage.
