WHO WAS THE PHARAOH OF THE EXODUS?
WHAT DOES THAT TELL US ABOUT THE ORIGINS OF ISRAEL?
There were more than 500 pharaohs from the unification of Egypt to the country’s fall to Rome. Two of them, at least, appear in the Torah: a good one who appoints Joseph to save his people from famine and later welcomes Jacob and his sons to Egypt; and an evil one, who enslaves the Israelites and later faces the wrath of G-d in the Ten Plagues and at the Red Sea.
So who was the Pharaoh of the Exodus? The results may surprise you, because they offer insights into the Biblical narrative and also lead to an explanation of how Israel emerged as the first monotheistic nation.
