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 adulthood.
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 remained.

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

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

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.
