yeah, but the problem here is that the Egyptians don't record them at all. In fact, there are very few references to Israel at all on Egyptian documents or monuments, of which we have plenty.Not at all. Simply go beyond the Bible to what is known. For example, there are indications that there was only one tribe of the Israelites down in Egypt. There are odds and ends in the Bible that back this up.
I would love to have a bible land, where we take stupid Christian idiots like you and enforce the harsh laws of the old Testament...Biblical accounts are not daily journals of facts. They are stories, stories meant first to teach a truth(s), but in order to teach, were both memorable and entertaining. I have often thought there are, even today, no greater story tellers than our ancestors. We give them too little credit when sneering at them for having "Bronze Age Superstitions". There are also indications that some were much wiser as well.
Whoops. Daughter not a virgin on her wedding night? YOU have to stone her on the front door, just like the Bible says you have to.
Whoops. Get caught picking up sticks on the Sabbath? Stone your ass.
Superstitious fucking Bronze Age savages... We don't sneer at them enough.
Instead, you go out, you Disney-fy the stories to make them "Cute" and then you pretend that this is somehow supposed to be inspiring.
