Queen of Sheba/Hatshepsut
Moses and the Exodus


In the time of King Solomon, the Queen of Sheba (Queen of the South) enters the story.  According to Egypt Immanuel Velikovsky, the Queen of Sheba was
Queen Hatshepsut.  
Described in her temple in Luxor, is her visit to the Land of Punt and all the things she brought back from there.

After the death of Thutmose II in 948 BC Hatshepsut calls upon Solomon (Senenmut)  for help.
This information is written on one of his monuments
`I was in this land under [her] command since the occurrence of the death of [her] predecessor...'

One of the things , it is alleged,  Queen Hatshepsut of Egypt brought back with her was the 'Seed of Solomon'
When she returned to Egypt, she gave birth to a child, Menelik. (Moses?)

The first year subsequent to the death of Thutmose II (948) would also be the 1st year of Thutmose III as Pharaoh with Hatshepsut co-reigning until he reached
However, with her chief advisor, Senemut, at her side, when that time came, she refused to give up the throne.

Hatshepsut  begins the construction of her mortuary temple at Deir el Bahari in her 7th year in 941 BC. At about this same time Senenmut begins the
construction of his mortuary temple connected to that of his queen. The queens tomb tomb was found by Carter in 1903 and penetrates 243 m (800 feet) deep
into the rocks, so deep that air had to be pumped into it for the workmen to breath. Inside was found her sarcophagus and that of Thutmose I, but little else

Two tombs prepared for Senenmut were found. Of these tombs 353 was never finished and sealed. The long, large tomb of Senmut (TT#71) located on the
north-east corner of the temple of Hatshepsut, was found by Winlock in 1927. It was discovered that all his portraits  were mutilated, yet the name of Hatshepsut
was left untouched. His quartzite sarcophagus was completely destroyed, broken into small pieces and strewn all around a large area.

We hear the last from Senmut in his 16th year which corresponds to the last 20 years of Solomon's reign.  The biblical scriptures are silent about events
happening with Solomon at that time if he may not have been in Israel during that time.

We think that after having met many of the kings from `the ends of the earth' Solomon indeed lived in peace during the 2nd half of his reign and that this
situation allowed him to become Senenmut at the court of his royal lover  Hatshepsut. That the Bible is silent about any events relating to this time may be due
to Jewish embarrassment that their king had such ties with Egypt and therefore they obliterated any memory of it in their writings.

Year 9 of Hatshepsut (-939) is the year when the Punt Expedition was sent out. For the next 10 years Hatshepsut was engaged in carrying out her many
constructions. But in 930 BC Solomon/Senmut disappears from the scene , followed by the apparent death of Hatshepsut in 926 BC.
The Queen was followed by Thutmose III who invaded Jerusalem in -925, the 5th year of King Rehoboam of Judah. The reign of Thutmose III lasted until about
899 BC.

The Exodus

If the Exodus occurred at 1440 B.C. then the 18th Dynasty of Thutmose III
(1504/3?-1450/47 B.C.) and his mother Hatshepsut (1503-1482), the woman
king, would be considered Moses protectors. Hatshepsut, the queen was forced
to flee during the reign of Thutmose III.

"Moses was an initiated priest of Amon and the presumed son of Pharaoh's
daughter.There is no definite reference to Moses in Egyptian texts, but there is
a great relationship between the Egyptian Akhnaton and Moses in activities and
events.  Akhnaton had a definite relationship between himself and the priest of

Historian Josephus asserted that the Scribes and the king eventually knew that
Moses was the 'one of the Prophecy' but did not slay him because of the royal

At Deir El Bahri, there is a wall which depicts the birth of the future heir to the
throne, one scene shows a baby boy in the arms of Hatshepsut-the infant
Moses!  There is also another statue found deplicting Solomon holding a boy
child indicating that he holds protection over this child.

In Acts 7:22 Stephen in an address to the Sanhedrin asserts that Moses was
not only instructed in the science and learning of the Egyptians but was also
endowed with oratorical ability and distinctive leadership qualities.The last that
we hear of Senenmut (Moses was also named this..after father
Senemut/Solomon) is in year 16 of Hatshepsut's Sheba's)  reign.
Moses  slays an Egyptian (Ex 2:12) and flees Egypt (Ex 2:15) because pharaoh
(Moses replacement) wanted to kill him. Tomb No. 353 was for Moses, but work
stopped when he fled Egypt. The tomb remains unfinished .  At the death of the
great Pharaoh, God appeared in a burning bush to Moses.

There is no definite reference to Moses in Egyptian texts, but there is a great
relationship between the Egyptian Akhnaton and Moses in activities and events.
The old religion of Egypt at one time had lost its inspiration because
materialism was increased and a reformation was greatly needed. Akhnaton
had a definite relationship between himself and the priest of Amon.

Senmut, (Solomon) holding child under his chin. When 'queen of sheba'
claiimed Moses as her son, he became the child heir-apparent to the throne of
Egypt. The child wears the serpent on the forehead and lock of hair on the right
side of the head that designates a prince of Egypt! It is Moses\

Acts 7 that Moses could have become the ruler of Egypt cf. Hebrews 11:24).

Thutmose III apparently did something that only occurred one additional time in
the span of Egyptian history.  Thutmose III, who undoubtedly hated her,
completely eradicated nearly all her monuments throughout Egypt. Only on one
other occasion  Egyptian authorities eradicated the monuments of a previous
pharaoh and erase his name wherever found. That was the case of the heretic
pharaoh Akhenaten who closed all the temples of the Egyptian gods and tried
to get them all to worship a single deity -- the god of the sun.
The Exodus

The Gospel According to Egypt
Epitome of Ahmed Osman's books:
Stranger in the Valley of the Kings
Moses: Pharaoh of Egypt
House of the Messiah

Aye succeeded Tutankhamun as Pharaoh, but ruled only a few years before he
too mysteriously disappeared.(1) The army commander, Horemheb, married a
surviving heiress (believed to be Mutnodjme, a sister of Nefertiti) of the royal
line and became Pharaoh in his place.(2) It was during Horemheb's reign that
Ramses was appointed commander of the Egyptian army. Ramses had formerly
been the mayor of Zarw, and upon his appointment as army commander, he
began to expand the fortress city of Zarw which was renamed Pi-Ramses (the
House of Ramses) in his own honor.(3) Renewed building at Zarw was later
inititated by Ramses II.

When Horemheb died without heir and was succeeded by Ramses, the
Egyptian 18th Dynasty came to an end. In the Sinai desert, at the location
known as Mount Sarabit, there are the remains of an ancient Egyptian temple. It
was here that the archaeologist Flinders Petrie found an exquisite statue of
Akhenaten's mother, Queen Tiye.(4) It was also here that a stele set up by
Pharaoh Ramses I was found which declared that the Aten and all its dominion
were now under his rule.(5) What more logical location would there be for such
a stele than at the very spot where Akhenaten (Moses) would have spent much
of his time in exile? What other reason would Ramses have had to place this
monument in such a remote area?

Osman deduces that if Akhenaten were still living, Ramses I, the erstwhile
underling of Akhenaten, would not have been allowed to make such a bold
proclamation, or to ascend to the throne without a challenge. The description of
Moses' return from the wilderness, found both in the Bible and the Koran,
includes appeals which would have been used by Akhenaten to convince the
elders of Egypt that he was indeed the exiled Pharaoh and should as the only
remaining Thutmosid be duly reinstated as king.(6)

Despite the former glories of the 18th Dynasty, Akhenaten was not welcomed
back. Ramses had already taken firm control over both the military and the
government of Egypt. Akhenaten was forced once again to leave Egypt.
Perhaps, as the Bible describes, Akhenaten and the rest of his "chosen" ones
who had not accompanied him into exile, would have been sent away with due
respect and with rich gifts (Exodus 12:35-36), but nonetheless they were sent
away. As the Book of Psalms records, at this final departure of Moses and his
followers, Egypt was truly glad (Psalm 105:38), for in their minds, the reign of
Akhenaten was a mistake, and the reason Egypt had been so severely afflicted
by plague. In the 19th Dynasty Akhenaten, Semenkhare, Tutankhamun and
Aye were excised from the king lists. They were considered to have never ruled
and the lengths of their reigns were added to that of Horemheb's!

The reign of Ramses I lasted only one full year, and correlates well with the
death of the Pharaoh during the Exodus as described by the Bible.(7)
Josephus, quoting Manetho, states that those responsible for Egypt's 13 years
of trouble were attacked by "Rampses" and driven out of Egypt.(8) At the time
of the death of Ramses I, his son Seti I, was involved in a military expedition in
the Sinai,(9) because "the foe belonging to the Shasu are plotting
rebellion."(10) The Karnak Temple mural from which this record is quoted also
states, "the rebels, they know not how they shall [flee]; the vanquished of the
Shasu [becoming like] that which exist not."(11) It stands to reason that an
attack on a tribe of bedouins(12) could have waited at least until Ramses' burial
... unless Seti believed that they were considered a threat to the throne, or
assisting the people he considered responsible for his father's death. (The
name Seti is derived from the Nile Delta god Set. Set, in Egyptian legend was
the murderer of Osiris. Later in Hebrew/Christian beliefs he became namesake
of the Biblical Satan.)

The following is a direct quote from "Egypt, Canaan, and Israel in Ancient
Times" by Donald Redford.(13) "Shasu [literally meaning "a people who move
on foot"](14) are found in Egyptian texts from the 18th Dynasty through the
Third Intermediate Period. They most frequently occur in generalizing toponym
lists where the context helps little in pinpointing their location. But lists from
Soleb and Amarah [in Nubia], ultimately of fifteenth century [B.C.] origin [circa
17th/18th Dynasty] suggest that an original concentration of Shasu settlements
lay in southern Transjordan in the plains of Moab and northern Edom. Here a
group of six names is identified as in 'the land of the Shasu' and these include
Se'ir (i.e., Edom), Laban (probably Libona, south of Amman), Sam'ath (cf. the
Shim'ethites, a clan of the Kenites: 1 Chron. 2:55), Wrbr (probably the Wady
Hasa) [, Yhw, and Pysps].(15) Elsewhere in texts of the 19th and 20th
Dynasties, the consistent linking of Shasu with Edom and the Arabah (Timna)
places the identifications on the earlier lists beyond doubt."

"The localization of the 'Land of the Shasu' in the mountainous districts of Se'ir
... has an interesting consequence for one name in the mentioned lists from
Soleb and Amarah - 'Yhw (in) the land of the Shasu.' For half a century it has
been generally admitted that we have here the tetragrammaton, the name of
the Israelite god, 'Yahweh'; and if this be the case, as it undoubtedly is, the
passage constitutes a most precious indication of the whereabouts during the
late fifteenth century B.C. of an enclave revering this god. ... Numerous
passages in later Biblical tradition ... depict Yahweh 'coming forth from Se'ir'
and originating in Edom."

Donald Redford goes on to state that the Shasu "burst with especially grievous
force just before the beginning of the 19th Dynasty across ... northern Sinai,
cutting off Egypt's coastal route ... though Sety I had little trouble in beating
them back ..." But why had these descendents of Laban (uncle/father-in-law of
Jacob and great-great-great-grandfather of the Biblical Moses, Genesis 28:2)
and adherents of Yahweh (i.e., Jehovah), whose homeland was in and around
Mount Se'ir in Edom, suddenly appeared along the Via Maris (Mediterranean
coastal route and main artery between Egypt and Canaan) at the same time
that Moses and the Israelites are said (according to Manetho) to have been
driven from Egypt by "Rampses?".

A reasonable deduction is that they were requested by Akhenaten to assist in
his return to Egypt, either to reclaim his throne, or to extract the remainder of
his followers ("speak to Pharaoh about bringing the Israelites out"). The size of
the Shasu force (200,000 by the Karnak account), which may have included the
Exodus party ("the foe belonging to the Shasu"), and their actions (possibly
raiding two Egyptian garrisons along the Via Maris in order to obtain water)(16)
were likely used as justification for a counterstrike by Seti.

The attacks on the Shasu were continued in the reign of the Pharaoh Ramses II
who succeeded Seti, and were again considered important enough to be
recorded on the walls of the Karnak temple, and at the Nile Delta city of
Tanis(17) as well. Moreover, Ramses II's son and successor Merenptah lists
another group (in lieu of the Shasu) as being a victim of his father's
campaigning in Palestine, namely Israel itself (Israel stela account), indicating
that by Merenptah's time Israel was recognized as a separate people apart from
the groups recorded by the Egyptians as living in "the land of the Shasu."
Hatshepsut, Queen of Sheba

Daughter of Thutmose I and Queen Ahmose. As was common in royal families, she married her half-brother, Thutmose II,
who had a son, Thutmose III, by a minor wife or concubine. The Egyptian tradition of having the Pharaoh marry a royal
woman led Thuthmose II to marry Hatshepsut. (The women in Egypt carried the royal blood, not the males. To become
Pharaoh, the man had to marry a female of royal blood, often a sister, half sister or other near relative. Usually it was the
eldest daughter of the previous Pharaoh.) Thuthmose II died soon after becoming Pharaoh, leaving the widow Hatshepsut,
a child which  some have called Neferura. Although this child was called a daughter, I believe it to be a male child born to
Hatshepsut which would later be known as Moses (sutherland )daughter Neferura... and a son by another wife When
Thutmose II died his son, Thutmose III, was appointed heir. However, Hatshepsut was appointed regent due to the boy's
young age. . Dressed in men attire, Hatshepsut administered affairs of the nation,
* building her magnificent temple at Deir
el Bahari in Thebes she made reliefs of her divine birth as the daughter of god Amun and goddess Hathor. . Driven by the
lust for power and hatred for  Hatshepsut , Tutmose III murdered the pharoah, destroying her shrines, statues and reliefs.
disappeared in 1458 B.C. when Thutmose III, wishing to reclaim the throne, led a revolt. Thutmose had her shrines, statues
and reliefs mutilated.

Kings  Lists (as that of "Seti I" in Abydos, and "Ramses II" at the Ramesseum Temple in Thebes) have deliberately
bypassed her name. In addition, the scripts at the tombs of the 20th dynasty priests that included all the 18th dynasty royal
family - including princes who died young – have made no mention of her.
Notes by Mary Sutherland:

1.)According to Queen Hatshepsut, the God  Amun-Re could  take the form of the king or pharaoh in order to impregnate the chief's royal wife for the divine
purpose of creating a  successor to the throne who would be a 'Son of God'.
2.) Laws Against Blue Blood Marrying Commoners  was brought into affect due to these blue blood families having copper based blood. By mixing their copper
based blood with the hemoglobin based blood of the 'commoner', risks of hemophilia ran quite high. To avoid this, the law against blue bloods marrying
commoners was necessary.
