Dear Friends

It was asked of us recently: Why was it apparently ok for Joseph to marry Asanath, daughter of the High Priest of On, and give birth to Ephraim and Manasseh? 

The answer lies in the varying rulerships of Egypt at the time. The answer has much to do with the foreign rule of Egypt from the 12th to the 18th dynasties. The Hyksos or “Shepherd Kings” were in Egypt from the 12th dynasty and then ruled the Delta completely from the 15th to the 17th dynasty. 

The Hyksos ruled Egypt from the 15th until the 18th Ahmosid dynasty when the Southern or Theban kings removed the Hyksos from Egypt and the 18th Ahmosid dynasty under Ahmose then removed the Hyksos from Sinai and Gaza.

This is what was referred to as the time where the Pharaoh did not know Joseph and Israel was enslaved.  It was during the Ahmosids that Moses was placed in Pharaoh’s house and given the name Moses which is derived directly from the Ahmosid dynasty.

The fact is that neither the Hyksos nor the Theban dynasties were Egyptian except for the females they married.  The Hyksos were Middle Eastern and occupied the Delta and subjugated the East. 

The Theban dynasty was not Egyptian either but was in fact Hittite. That was why the Celts were welcomed in Egypt especially in the South and why they fought for the Thebans against the Nubians.  That was why the Scythians under Niall were in Egypt according to the Milesian Genealogies. These were allegedly Magogites whereas the Hittites were Gomerites centred on Anatolia and the Gomerite territories of the Riphathians to the north to the Black Sea.  The Western Gomerites were in Wilusia centred on the City of Troy.  These details are covered in the papers The Sons of Japheth Part II Gomer (No. 046B) and The Sons of Japheth Part II: Magog (No. 046C).

How do we know the Ahmosids were Hittites? The YDNA of Tutankhamen was R1B Hittite. Hatshepsut had written to the king of the Hittites and asked for another throne prince to preserve the dynasty. The Exodus took place under the Ahmosids and Neil was son in law of one of the Ahmosids. His wife was Scota and their son was Godel Glas or Godel the Green. The Gadelians are descended from him.  They were given Caper Cyrunt on the other side of the Red Sea as their lands.  However the Egyptians punished them for siding with the Israelites as part of the Mixed Multitude in the Exodus. These details are found in the site under the Genealogy of the Geoghegans.

The Gadelian’s genealogy states that Neil was with the Mixed Multitude in the Exodus with Moses, which is an Ahmosid name. The Egyptians try to make the Exodus happen in the later Ramesides on the grounds that it was they that established the brick cities built by the Israelites. The cities were simply taken over and added to by the Ramesides and the Ahmosid details removed. This was common practice in Egypt but resisted in order to attack the veracity of the Bible.

The Thebans did not rule Goshen at the time of Joseph.  It was the Hyksos that did so. Asanath means “the servant of” and thus the goddess must be assumed. She was daughter of Potipher, priest of On. She was given by Pharaoh to Joseph and thus became the mother of Ephraim and Manasseh.  Her origins in the Hebrew legends have her as a Hebrew daughter of Shechem and Dinah who was adopted by Potipher. This is not all that farfetched as Potipher was in all probability a eunuch due to his position. That also explains the frustration of his wife. Other accounts state that she was converted by Joseph.

The Hyksos entered Egypt from Asia Minor ca 1900 BCE which was at the time of Abraham during the 12th dynasty from an inscription of the 12th dynasty which describes the Asiatic incursions at the time. The 15th dynasty was recognised as Hyksos in the east Nile and Delta area. The record indicates that the first pharaoh of the 18th dynasty, Ahmose I, finally expelled the Hyksos from their last holdout at Sharuhen in Gaza by the 16th year of his reign. Scholars have taken the increasing use of scarabs and the adoption of some Egyptian forms of art by the 15th dynasty Hyksos kings and their wide distribution as an indication of their becoming progressively Egyptianised. The Hyksos used Egyptian titles associated with traditional Egyptian kingship, and took the Egyptian god Seth to represent their own titular deity.  However, the scholars are faced with the fact that the Ahmosids were Hittites and thus associated with the northern rulers and were probably involved in the struggles for power among the Hittites and the rising Midianites/ Sons of Keturah/Ishamelites. 

Job is recorded as being in Midian before Moses and he was the son of Issachar (Gen. 46:13). The entities in the book of Job are identified from Genesis.  The names used are SHD 3102 for Genesis and in the Book of Job it is SHD 347 iyowb from 340 which carried the meaning hated or persecuted.

The name in Genesis 3102 is considered to be possible misrendering as Yowb perhaps from 3103 Yowbab or Howler and Strong thinks it may be a misrendering from SHD 3437 meaning “he will return.”  This may well have a spiritual meaning to the future salvation but the name change from Genesis to Job may mean to go from “howling” to “the persecuted” which he certainly was.

The Hyksos seem to be connected to the time of Abraham and it seems that Abraham may well have gone to Egypt because the Hyksos were in control and he was welcome there as were the sons of Jacob and the traders who sold Joseph there.  It seems certain that the Hyksos and the Hittite Celts were in command of Egypt, perhaps with the sons of Shem, from the 12th to the 18th dynasties.

The time frame for the Exodus is covered in the paper Outline Timetable of the Age (No. 272).
The God served at this time was Iah as Yah and referred to as the God of the New Moon.  He was referred to as God of the New Moon specifically in many texts which was held to represent him and his cartouche uses that symbol. It is beyond coincidence.
