The Pharaoh of the Exodus Fairy tale or real history? Outcome of the investigation

For Egyptologists as well as archaeologists, and even now Bible scholars, the answer to the question: Who to believe: Moses or Egyptologists? is obvious (Dever: 2003, 233): Rather than attempt to defend the factual historicity of the Exodus traditions, I suggest that we must understand the Exodus story precisely as a myth, specifically as a "metaphor for liberation" (...) There is ample evidence that the Exodus story was read metaphorically already in ancient times, certainly so by the early rabbis and by later rabbinical commentaries. Several scholars (Finkelstein, Dever and others) posit...

Israel in Canaan. (Long) Before Pharaoh Merenptah? A fresh look at Berlin statue pedestal relief 21687

In 2001, Manfred Görg published a new reading of a fragmentary name ring on a topographical pedestal relief in the Berlin Museum . Although the inscription had previously been listed in topographical studies, the reading of the fragmentary third name ring had not received adequate attention. Görg suggested reading the broken name as an archaic form for "Israel" and argued that it could have been copied during the Nineteenth Dynasty from an earlier list. As his publication was in German, his proposal has so far been unavailable to a wider English-speaking readership. The present authors...

Merchant Associations, Domestic Cult and Architecture in Late Hellenistic Delos

This paper examines the material as well as epigraphic evidence of merchant associations and domestic cults in late Hellenistic Delos in order to tackle the ways in which merchant communities employed religious practices as economic agents in the dynamic urban economy of the period. Delos has yielded rich epigraphic evidence of different associations and groups that issued inscriptions from the third century BCE to the second century CE, while most inscriptions date from the heyday of the free port from 167/166 to 88 BCE. These inscriptions attest the geographic diversity of the mercantile...
