An entire burial cave from the reign of Ramses II, who is thought to be the pharaoh mentioned in the biblical book of Exodus, has been found by archaeologists.
Between roughly 1279 and 1213 B.C., Ramesses II, also referred to as Ramesses the Great, ruled Egypt. According to legend, the king extended the dominion of ancient Egypt to modern-day Sudan and northeastern Syria.
This implies that Israel was once ruled by Egypt. Yannai stated that the old cave provides a “complete picture” of the time’s burial customs and confirms the reality of the story in the Bible about the colonisation and the deliverance of the Israeli nation.
The Christian’s Holy Book had depicted Egypt as one of the world’s powers at the time. A nation that was opened to all forms of trade and merchandise: human, materials and animals alike. Ramesses the Great was said to have promoted a Hebrew slave by the name Joseph, to be his right hand man, vesting all authority in him except that of the throne. History recorded that the Pharaoh did that because the Hebrew slave had interpreted two dreams that he had, which all his astrologer, magicians, nobles, etc could not decipher. The Hebrew did not stop at that, but went ahead to proffer a lasting solution to an impending famine that was looming over the nation at the time.
The solution Joseph proffered saved the nation and made it the succour for surrounding nations: they all came to trade in Egypt in exchange for food supplies. The search for food brought the family of Joseph the Hebrew slave boy to Egypt and the whole nation of Israel relocated to Egypt for survival. A move that sentenced them to decades of slavery after the death of Ramesses the Great.
