Another great read – Ralph Ellis’ Tempest & Exodus



This old tale is bunk.  Abraham didn’t travel to Egypt.  He was an Egyptian.

After finishing John Lam Lash’s Not In His Image which is a great introductory book on the subject of gnosticism, my next read this trip is another Ralph Ellis book,  Tempest & Exodus.  He takes you through all the sources and linguistic evidence that the Israelites were Egyptians, that Abraham was a pharaoh and Mt Sinai is the Great Pyramid.  The Torah tries hard to disguise the origins of the Israelites, giving more prominence to Palestinian place names than Egyptian, though in nearly all cases the real biblical events have been moved out of Egypt, where they actually took place.

The book is highly recommended.  I was sceptical about the Great Pyramid being Mt Sinai after remembering so many books by Zechariah Sitchin claiming it was located near the Sinai desert.  Yet after reading Ellis’ evidence, it seems thatSitchin was just another author sowing the same old deceptions.

Ellis sticks in the relevant period and doesn’t venture further back to Babylon, Akkadia and Sumeria.  It would be fascinating to read Ellis’ is take on those earlier periods some day.  In just 250 pages, Ellis makes the scribes who penned The Old testament look like cheap conmen, out to subjugate simple and trusting humanity.  It’s time we woke up.

    250 pages I can manage this and a decent response, on ‘what if…’ (out of respect I’m saying if…), ‘the Israelites were Egyptians’. ‘Abraham a…’ etc.
    Picked up ‘A Brief History of Theology’ on Brueggemann the other night, (later found it’s available on line) – terrific read. An outsider with a promise. As Ralph speaks to you, Walter to me. Another great read. We’ll see. I’ll do my best to appreciate the claims, the ‘tempest and exodus’. Exercised and grateful by this line of enquiry

    Henry, might it be possible you could write a short article, summarising the key takeaway points from the JLL not in his image book please?
