Dr. Petrovich Responds to Challenges
Archaeologist Dr. Petrovich has made a strong systematic case that Joseph, Jacob, Manasseh, and Ephraim are clearly present in the inscriptions of Egyptian archaeology. These inscriptions fit into the events portrayed in the Bible and add new detail and clarity that is quite impressive. Most important is the fact that Ephraim and Manasseh, largely raised in by an Egyptian mother in the top vizier’s household, no doubt learned to read and write as well as talk in Egyptian but could only talk their forefather’s language, Hebrew, since there was no written Hebrew at that time. They saw the great utility and power of a written language although hieroglyphics was rather clumsy with more than 800 symbols for different words. So, Manasseh and Ephraim developed a written form of Hebrew using an alphabet making it far more efficient than Hieroglyphics. All of that happened in the 12th Dynasty of Egypt.
Archaeologist have known for 150 years this language exists but it remained undecipherable. Now Dr. Petrovich has shown how to read it and it yields a wealth of new systematically consistent evidence.
Joseph died in 1805 BC, near the end of the 12th Dynasty. In the next tree Dynasties Egypt fell into the chaos generated by major migrations from the East and later Hyksos invasions. A new era of Egyptian control was established in 1575 by a new dynasty of Pharaohs. One Hebrew inscription says the new Pharaoh did not know Joseph and another says the Pharaoh sought to cut away to barrenness the Hebrew’s great number.
Dr. Petrovich’s paper, “Amenhotep II and the Historicity of the Exodus-Pharaoh” has well established the reality of the Exodus event at 1446 BC.
In all of this many scholars with various different viewpoints have produced challenging questions for Petrovich. A good sample of these were recently included from The Moses Controversy Film from the Patterns of Evidence series. In that series Tim Mahoney interviews many well know scholars to ask them for their understanding on a variety of issues related to Moses and the Exodus. Dr. Petrovich has responded to 23 of these issues that seem to challenge Dr. Petrovich’s work in a 2019 paper titled “Interacting with the Patterns of Evidence: The Moses Controversy Film” .
