Riddle of the Exodus explores the “startling parallels between ancient Jewish sources and the Egyptian archaeological record” regarding the exodus from Egypt of the Hebrews. James D. Long begins by looking at the reality of Egyptology and archaeology as being based upon opinions and not simply objectivity based upon hard facts. This simple reality leads Long into the explanation – that the chronology that is widely used by Egyptologists and archaeologists is simply not reliable.
Based upon research byPaul Rothstein, Long argues that the trail often goes cold when researching the Exodus because scholars refuse to learn from Jewish records. The main sources for the Jewish records include: Tanakh, Talmud, Midrash, and Seder HaOlam.
These ten plagues are also supported bya papyrus currently located in the Museum of Leiden (Netherlands). This papyrus tells of ten plagues that befell Egypt–all ten of them correspond to the ten plagues spelled out in the Tanakh.
James D. Long provides some interesting theories as to the date of the Exodus as well as the route of the Hebrews. In addition, for anyone interested in Egyptology or archaeology in general, the care that Long takes in explaining the truth behind the scholarly theories.
