Item Description...
A reinterpretation of Egyptian and biblical history that shows the Patriarch Joseph and Yuya, a vizier of the eighteenth dynasty king Tuthmosis IV, to be the same person

? Uses detailed evidence from Egyptian, biblical, and Koranic sources to place Exodus in the time of Ramses I

? Sheds new light on the mysterious and sudden rise of monotheism under Yuya's daughter, Queen Tiye, and her son Akhnaten

When Joseph revealed his identity to his kinsmen who had sold him into slavery, he told them that God had made him "a father to Pharaoh." Throughout the long history of ancient Egypt, only one man is known to have been given the title "a father to Pharaoh"--Yuya, a vizier of the eighteenth dynasty king Tuthmosis IV. Yuya has long intrigued Egyptologists because he was buried in the Valley of Kings even though he was not a member of the Royal House. His extraordinarily well-preserved mummy has a strong Semitic appearance, which suggests he was not of Egyptian blood, and many aspects of his burial have been shown to be contrary to Egyptian custom.

As The Hebrew Pharohs of Egypt shows, the idea that Joseph and Yuya may be one and the same person sheds a whole new light on the sudden rise of monotheism in Egypt, spearheaded by Queen Tiye and her son Akhnaten. It would clearly explain the deliberate obliteration of references to the "heretic" king and his successors by the last eighteenth dynasty pharaoh, Horemheb, whom the author believes was the oppressor king in the Book of Exodus. The author also draws on a wealth of detailed evidence from Egyptian, biblical, and Koranic sources to place the time of the departure of the Hebrews from Egypt during the short reign of Ramses I, the first king of the nineteenth dynasty.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Poor scholarship should be obvious to any reader  Sep 18, 2008
I have no idea whether Osman's basic premise -- that the story of Joseph etc happened a couple hundred years later than currently thought, thus cutting the time spent by the Hebrews in Egypt down by a few centuries -- is worth analysis or not. What I do see, from reading this book, is that Osman is a terrible scholar.

His politics is always obvious, and always showing. For example, he'll stop and slip in a chapter about what the Koran might possibly illuminate regarding the story of Joseph -- well frankly, that's pretty bad. The Koran was written a good 15+ centuries after the Joseph story, and it's about as absurd to imagine that the Koran might give us some new "true" details about Joseph in ancient Egypt, than Reverend Sung Moon might. Don't get me wrong --- if you believe any Bible literally, that's well and good, but if you're writing a book to analyze things from an archaeologists perspective, and you're highly critical of the Old Testament's origins, it's absolutely wrong to simply plop in a chapter describing what the Koran says as though the 7th century Koran more valuable as a source than the Old Test. (In discussing the Old Testament, the author discusses current ideas about its origins, possible multiple sources of documents, etc., but with the Koran, simply seems to accept it as true without even mentioning it was written 1500 years later and clearly was based on the Old Testament and no other sources!)

Okay, enough said about that one chapter, but the author does nasty tricks like this throughout. For example, he implies that Abraham's son Isaac was not actually begot by him (Abraham), but by an Egyptian prince, and thus only Ishmael is the true descendant of Abraham. Evidence? He seems to have inserted a nonexistent timeline of less than 9 months into the Bible, where there is no such evidence. Then he quotes some Talmud sources that seem to question this very issue, and says see, even the Jews don't believe Abraham was father of Isaac -- and wait, does he cite the Talmud sources? No! He cites another author, not a Jewish scholar, and fails to even indicate where in the Talmud this might be (and the Talmud is incredibly easy to reference... it's more standardized than lexis-nexis.) So he makes it sound as though Jews themselves don't believe Isaac was Abraham's son. Sounds like his personal religion is affecting his scholarship, indeed.

I don't want to belabor the issue. I certainly would like some well-respected Egyptologist to investigate whether his premise is correct, and then do the proper research job that this author didn't. I'm not saying his basic premise doesn't deserve research. I'm just saying, that this is not the guy to do the research properly. Meanwhile, I would not suggest people read this book; it is too easy to lose track of just how precise and careful archaeologists ought to be, and come to accept some of the things he writes, when no self-respecting archaeologist would do so.

Joseph lost a coat and gained a crown  Jul 3, 2008
Ahmed Osman crafted a magnificent scholarly work of interest to both theologians and people in the pew. His book, The Hebrew Pharaohs of Egypt: The Secret Lineage of Patriarch Joseph, provides a tremendous amount of detailed background for lay readers, which otherwise can be dense and convoluted. Still, the text teems with footnotes and relies heavily on other preeminent authors, professors, museum artifacts, and Biblical quotations. In short it has all the trappings of an academic paper. Osman's work has relevance and consequences for Judaism, Islam and Christianity. Followers of faith who read this book and want to appreciate the depth the Osman's hypothesis must be willing to open their mind to think beyond traditional words heard in synagogue, mosques, temples and churches.

Early on Ahmed Osman clearly states his position as a person of faith and his cultural context and scholarly bias. Then he plunges into the Joseph narrative, literally word by word according to the Koran and the Hebrew Bible. I read the majority of the book while traveling in Egypt, which of course brought rich meaning and life to the pages. Not everyone can do that, but the book is still worth the read. Furthermore, in today's information virtual world, much of the artifacts used to build Osman's case are visible on the Internet from museum and university web sites.

Osman traces the lineage of a royal birthright from Abraham and Sarah's brief stay in Egypt. He follows it as Esau surrenders the birthright to Jacob for a meal, and eventually links it to Joseph and the rise of monotheism in the 17th Dynasty of Ancient Egypt. Along this largely unheralded tale Osman makes many nice and very neat ties that have possibility. Some theologians, including myself, recognize the probability of Osman's theory. Pick up The Hebrew Pharaohs of Egypt, let go of preconceived notions and enjoy.

I am not interested in this book but in J.D. Lutz's review. Is that you Jack from a million years ago in Milwaukee?

An Important, But Not the Last Word on Revisionist History  Jan 16, 2008
I read the 2003 edition of the 1987 book aka "Stranger in the Valley of the Kings". It contains only 160 text pages (including maps) and 32 picture pages.

It is about the identification of the Biblical Joseph with the Egyptian vizier Yuya, whose tomb with mummy was found in 1905. The reasoning of Ahmed Osman is strong, however not set in stone. He strongly rejects the idea of the Hyksos having anything to do with the Biblical Exodus. In the meanwhile, Ralph Ellis has offered a stronger reasoning for precisely the opposite (in Jesus: Last of the Pharoahs and Tempest & Exodus). Overall, Osman seems to be more trustworthy by comparison, e.g. in the identification of Moses (in Moses and Akhenaten: The Secret History of Egypt at the Time of the Exodus), however not in this specific contest of revelations. Ellis also puts forward the idea that Joseph/Yuya was an inherited title, not an individual's name, hence leading to a varying identification of Joseph. Which I am not that convinced about, but by all means, every reader may find her and his personal opinion on that.

In some minor aspects, Osman's book is starting to accumulate dust. For example, using the n-word and falling for the legend that it was the Romans and later the Muslims who burned the library of Alexandria. In reality, it was the Romans and the Christians. There was nothing left, when the Muslims entered the scene.

This book is a stepping stone on the way to the real early and tempered with history - nothing more, but definitely nothing less.
Fantasy Writing  Dec 24, 2007
The Bible has already been shown as historically accurate be even atheist archeologists. This author is the type to believe the myths of Atlantean nuts who make up imaginary things about Egypt and Atlantis.
