Abraham an Egyptian Pharoh


by Ralph

If I indicated that biblical Abraham was a pharaoh of
Egypt, would it appear to be an utterly absurd figment of a deranged mind?
Initially that may seem so, but this is only because we have grown so used to
the orthodox ecclesiastical creed that we have forgotten that the Biblical
Abraham was in fact a very powerful man. Josephus, the first century Jewish
historian says of Abraham:

Pharaoh Necho, king of Egypt at the time, descended on
this land with an immense army and seized Sarah the Princess, mother of our
nation. And what did our forefather Abraham do? Did he avenge the insult by
force of arms? Yet he had three hundred and eighteen officers under him, with
unlimited manpower at his disposal!

Three hundred and eighteen officers, not men, under his
command, it was obviously quite a sizable army that Abraham had at his disposal
– possibly running into the tens of thousands. In this case, the image I have
portrayed above is not quite so absurd, at the most it is just an embellishment
on what the texts say, for they do not explain from what lands and over what
peoples Abraham was such a leader. Yet how many options do we really have, how
many nations in this era would have such a powerful army? This simple
observation, holds within it the key to the fundamentals of modern theology and
these are far removed from the Christmas card images that we are so familiar
with. It is somehow explained to us by the clergy that the whole of the Western
world were suddenly transfixed by the philosophy of a family of nomadic
sheep-herders wandering around the Negev desert, a family who had held their
traditions through thousands of years – and all this at a time when most such
individuals were illiterate. This is the fantasy!

The truth is rather different and rather more believable –
Abraham, pharaoh of Egypt, master of all he surveyed, the most powerful man in
the world. Now this would be a real story to set the scribes scribbling, the
story of his sons, of his forefathers, of his mighty deeds and works. Like the
tales of all kings, each and every schoolchild would be forced to learn by rote
the names and accomplishments of the royal family, it would be ingrained into
the national psyche. This is the kind of family that can trace their history
back through 70 generations, as could Jesus, this is the kind of family that
could spawn a billion books. Jesus’ nation, the Jews, have always had an
overriding fascination with genealogy, but why should this be so? The reason is
now clear, with their aristocracy perhaps descended from a line of semi-divine
kings and descended from the mighty Egyptian empire, I think we have all the
explanations necessary. Royal dynasties to this day have the same fascination
for their family history, for the family’s entire existence depends solely on
proving their legitimacy.


But if the biblical family were pharaohs of Egypt, should we
not see them in the historical record? Indeed so, but first of all the precise
era to study needs to be decided and the clue to this comes from the Bible. The
patriarchs in the Bible are known as being shepherds, as I have just indicated,
in fact the Bible is quite specific about this point. Joseph’s family are asked
by pharaoh:

What is your occupation? And they said … Thy servants
are shepherds, both we, and also our fathers.

This point is not just interesting, it is fundamental to
understanding what the Bible is trying to tell us. For it just so happens that a
whole dynasty of pharaohs were known as shepherds! These were the pharaohs who,
in the historical record, had ‘invaded’ northern Egypt during the 14th to 16th
dynasties and these peoples were known as the Hyksos, a term which translates as
‘Shepherd King’. Clearly we have a very obvious and very strong link here – in
fact it is amazing that so little has been said about this coincidence. There is
a great deal of synergy here, the Bible mentions a very special family line of
Shepherds of which it says the Òkings will come out of youÓ and likewise the
historical record tells us that some of the pharaohs of northern Egypt were
called Shepherd Kings. It was a similarity that was just crying out to be
investigated and the results of this scrutiny were quite astounding.

To start this process is has to be assumed that the Bible
contains a real historical record, yet many people may look at the Bible as
something completely alien to the real world. We have the real history provided
for us by the archaeologists and then there is the theological history of the
Bible, Koran and Torah – yet it seems at times that the two records are mutually
exclusive. Nothing in the theological record really ties in with the historical
one, it is almost as if the biblical story occurred on another planet! Nothing
could be further from the truth, in reality the Bible and the historical record
continuously merge into one – if one knows how to interpret what is being

The key to this entire conundrum was the term shepherd, for
why should an Egyptian pharaoh wish to be known as a shepherd? The answer lay in
the Egyptian records and their fascination with astrology, this just had to be a
stellar reference, these kings were being compared to the constellation of
Aries. With this concept firmly in the back of the mind, the Bible suddenly
started to release its long hidden secrets: for there are numerous references to
sheep and cattle in the Bible and although the subject matter fitted the quaint
pastoral image being plied by the clergy, none of them made any literal sense.
But suitably translated, with the sheep becoming the constellation of Aries (or
their followers) and the cattle as Taurus (and their followers), everything
fitted into place.

As has been alluded to in previous books, the constellations
move slowly with the millennia and each era has a ruling constellation, the
current one being Pisces. But back in the 13th 14th dynasty, they were on the
cusp of a change in the constellations, between Taurus and Aries. The era of
Taurus lasted until about 1800 BC, when Aries came into ascendance, this date is
not only very close to both the era of the first Hyksos pharaohs and the arrival
of Abraham in the Bible, but I would also suggest that this change in the
constellations caused a social rift between the Apis Bull worshippers in Thebes
(the Taureans) and the Hyksos Shepherd pharaohs in the north (the Arians). The
country was divided, there was civil war – just as the historical records


The Bible has direct evidence that shows this to be true and
in addition the following quote seems to be a verbatim conversation that has
been preserved for some 3,500 years. The scene is set by the 3rd century BC
Egyptian historian Manetho, who indicates (as does the Bible) that there were
actually two exoduses from Egypt – one being a major migration and the other a
much smaller exodus of priests. After the first exodus, the patriarch Joseph (he
with the coat of many colours, ie a priests stole) goes back to Egypt and rises
to become the most powerful man in Egypt, save from the pharaoh himself. Joseph
asks his family to join him in Egypt, but he has a warning for them.

(Paraphrased) You are shepherds as you know, and your
duty is to feed the cattle… And it shall come to pass that pharaoh will call
you, and shall say what is your occupation. You must say in return that your
trade has been cattle from our youth even until now, both we and also our
fathers. Otherwise you will not be allowed to stay in the land of Egypt, for we
shepherds are an abomination to the Egyptians.

What could Joseph possibly mean by this statement? It is not
as if the Egyptians had any prohibitions on the eating of sheep meat, so why was
the pharaoh so interested in the occupation of the brothers and why was the
lowly but honourable profession of shepherd so despised? The solution is simple,
a couple of words have been altered by the scribes to give the conversation an
agricultural bias, but in truth they were discussing the most important topic in
Egypt – religion. Replacing the words with their original astrological
counterparts, the full import of the statement becomes dramatically clear.

(Paraphrased) You are Hyksos/Arians as you know, and your
duty is to convert the followers of Taurus … And it shall come to pass that
pharaoh will call you, and shall say what is your religion. You must say in
return that your religion has been Taurean from our youth even until now, both
we and also our fathers. Otherwise you will not be allowed to stay in the land
of Egypt, for we Hyksos/Arians are an abomination to the

Suddenly it becomes dramatically obvious why the Egyptians
thought that shepherds were an abomination. This was not a reference to a
profession, but to a religion and an entire nation – the Hyksos. Egypt had just
been through a bitter and bloody civil war with these peoples, a war between
southern and northern Egypt which resulted in the Exodus of the Hyksos peoples
and the destruction of much of the northern delta lands. Of course the
‘shepherds’ were an abomination to the (southern) Egyptians – they were the
Hyksos Shepherds!

Suddenly the Bible makes sense, there is valid historical
data to be found if we know what to look for. Forget the picture postcard images
of simple nomadic farmers – enter the tortuous dynastic alliances and political
machinations of the most powerful people in the world in that era – the pharaohs
of Egypt. Joseph was, by the admission of the Bible, the vizier to the pharaoh,
the second most powerful man in the world. It is not a great extension of this
biblical history to say that the other members of this important family were
even more powerful, that they sat on the throne itself.

Further evidence that this is the correct interpretation to
be placed upon the Old Testament writings is provided by the later works in the
New Testament. Jesus, who was descended from the same family as the patriarchs,
was born as a Lamb of God. In other words he was a young Shepherd (Hyksos)
prince in exile, he was just a lamb for the time being. As Jesus matured to
become a Shepherd, another momentous event was happening in the skies above; at
just this precise era the constellation of Aries started to wane in the heavens
and Pisces came into the ascendance. Accordingly Jesus changed his title
according to the age-old tradition, the young shepherd became a Fisher of Men, a
king of Pisces. The first of the Grail romance “Fisher Kings” had been


So if the biblical patriarchs were indeed pharaohs of Egypt,
why are they not to be found in the historical record? One of the simplest ways
of looking for evidence for this biblical pharaonic family, would be among the
all important and diligently recorded family names of the patriarchs.

Unfortunately, however, the very line of kings that we wish
to research is the most fragmentary in the historical record, but nevertheless,
some progress can be made. As a starting point in this search, take a look at an
encyclopaedia of the pharaohs of Egypt and flick through the pages until you
reach the sixteenth dynasty, the period that covers the last of the Hyksos
pharaohs. The last pharaoh listed is Yacobaam, a name not unrelated to that of
the patriarch Jacob. Many deliberations on this similarity are made within the
book “Jesus Last of the Pharaohs”, including the removal of the ‘m’ at the end
of the name, which is likely to be a ‘determinative’ glyph. The resulting
conclusion has to be that there is a direct connection here.

cartouche for Yacobaam

Suddenly the Biblical Jacob, father of Joseph, becomes the
historical Jacoba, a Hyksos Egyptian pharaoh. This is a revolution in theology,
but it is only a small step in a long process of uncovering the truth. The
Biblical family is about to be transformed in terms of its political and secular
importance. We have found the first bunch of grapes on this ancient royal

This is the radical theory that underpins the whole of the book
“Jesus, Last of the Pharaohs”. It is a real story, constantly backed up by the
ancient text themselves. The first step towards this transformation is to
readjust our perceptions of the past. Throw out the years of established dogma
that clouds our normally rational and critical analysis of the world and look at
history anew. See the incredible tale of a ruling dynasty that has managed to
cling to the greasy pole of history, despite the millennia of misunderstandings
and persecutions, a family that is not even recognised by the faithful that
worship them to this day. The Torah and Old Testament were never intended to be
simple tales of Asiatic tribes and sheep herders. The true story is a complete
history of the ruling family of Egypt, the ‘Royal Bloodline’. It is a history
that can both solve the mysteries of man’s dim and distant past and also tell us
something of our future destiny.


Working through the Bible looking for pharaohs was an interesting
task, but although this may seem to be a bizarre field of study, nevertheless
coincidences seemed to fall out of the texts like confetti. Each of the names in
the table below has only required small changes to the pharaonic names, each
made using the standard techniques that all Egyptologists use, to reform
themselves into their Biblical equivalents. This is not ‘cheating’, for
Egyptologists do not know themselves how these names are supposed to be
pronounced. Should the name Stephen, for instance, be pronounced Steven or
Step-hen? Without a guide it is impossible to know. Now we have our guide, the
Torah, Bible and Koran will instruct us as to how these ancient names should be
pronounced. Using this simple technique of name comparison, suddenly the texts
come alive with historical kings:

After a long list of biblical pharaohs we finally come to another
pharaoh, the one mentioned by the historian Josephus at the beginning of the
article – Necho. Looking down the historical record for an equivalent pharaoh
reveals that the closest match is Nehesy, a fifteenth dynasty pharaoh. This link
may not seem totally convincing at this stage, but remember that Egyptologists
are uncertain of the exact pronunciation here so the name Nehesy could also be
seen as being pronounced as Nehosy, each is a valid transliteration. It is also
significant that the name of Abraham’s wife was Sarah, which is quite possibly a
derivation of this same pharaoh’s throne name, which was Aasehra.


So perhaps Necho and Nehesy were simply different renditions of
the ‘first name’ of this pharaoh. Looking at the Bible we find a possible third
translation of this name, that of Nachor, the grand-father of Abraham. Have we
found another Biblical pharaoh? The Biblical Nachor and Josephus’ pharaoh called
Necho seem far too close for comfort. To find out for sure we could always
compare the family histories involved, comparing the sons and grand-sons for
instance. The son of the Biblical Nachor was Thara, whereas the son of the
pharaoh Nehesy was Sheshi. Thus far, this is not looking too promising.

But wait just a minute, the throne-name of the pharaoh Nehesy is
Aasahra and this seems to equate very nicely with the Biblical Thara; it looks
as if the Bible has simply dropped the initial ‘A’ in the name. The fact that
there was an original ‘A’ attached to this Biblical name is confirmed by the
same stories that occur in the Koran, where the same individual (the father of
Abraham) is called Azar. The Koran, however, seems to have lost the ‘a’ at the
end of the name, it has lost the suffix of this name instead of the prefix. but
if we conjoin the two patriarchal names of Azar and Thara, we either derive the
name Aathara or Azara. All in all, it would appear that the pharaonic name of
Aasahra has been preserved rather well over the years in these religious

What we now have is the father and grand-father of Abraham being
joined into just one individual in the Egyptian historical record, where he is
listed under the two names of the pharaoh Nehesy. If we quite legitimately
change the second vowel in the name Nehesy to an ‘o’, we thus derive:

The historical Pharaoh: Nehosy (Aasahra)
The Biblical
Patriarch: Nachor (Azarah)

This is a very satisfying arrangement. However the whole edifice
we have just built up, seems to fall down on the count of one glaring error –
the son of Nehesy. The Biblical Nachor (Azarah) fathered Abraham himself. Yet if
we look at the historical record, the son of Nehesy (Aasarah) is this pharaoh
called Sheshi, this is truly unsatisfactory and it seems to undermine all the
progress that has been made so far.

Actually this is not so, it was just the result that was needed to
finally convince me, and perhaps the reader, that this was not all wishful
thinking, that this line of Biblical pharaohs is a historical reality. Why?
Because the throne name of the pharaoh Sheshi is none other than Mayebre or
Mamayebra. This name not only sounds like Abraham, with the ‘M’ displaced to the
end, it is quite possibly another very simple and possibly deliberate
mistranslation of it. The cartouche of Mamayebra looks like this:

Fig 2.
Cartouche of Mayebra
Mam-aye-bra ~ Ay-bra-ham.

What better way to hide the name of a pharaoh, than simply moving
the first syllable to the end of the name. So subtle and yet so effective was
the ploy, that the truth lay hidden for thousands of years – Abraham was a
pharaoh of Egypt. The Bible seems to admit this possibility, even if theologians
will not; of Abraham it says:

For a father of many nations I have made thee. And I shall
make thee exceedingly fruitful … and kings shall come out of

The true royal status of Abraham can be seen once more, it is just
as the biblical texts tell us, “… and kings shall come out of thee.” Now the
ma’at, the truth, can be told; the Biblical patriarchs were indeed powerful
people, they were pharaohs of Egypt.


This line of Biblical pharaohs is the baton that “Jesus, Last of
the Pharaohs” takes up and runs with. Here we have the outline for an entirely
new history of Egypt and Palestine. The great Exodus can be seen in an entirely
new light, with the causes and ramifications of this historic event falling on
the shoulders of Egypt herself, it was nothing more or less than an internal
dispute – a civil war. Jesus too, sprang from this royal vine, he too was a
pharaoh of Egypt, but a pharaoh in exile. Egypt was no longer seen as being
their rightful property by the royal dynasty at this time, but the traditions
and influences of Egypt were still strong enough that the young Jesus was sent
there to receive his education; they were also strong enough for the ‘lamb’ to
pronounce himself a Fisher of Men – the ancient traditions were still being
adhered to. We continue to follow the ministry of Jesus and find many references
to his royal stature, plus some ‘new’, very interesting and contemporary
historical references that place Jesus in a real historical context. He was
described by his detractors in that era as being the ‘Egyptian False Prophet’,
he was also the governor of Tiberias and he later tried to take Jerusalem back
from the rebel Jewish factions by force of arms with 600 men from his base on
the Mount of Olives, an event that is described in the Bible in dramatically
similar phrases.

The book “Jesus, Last of the Pharaohs” runs with this theme
through thick and thin, for the results of this new theological interpretation
can sometimes be both shocking and profound. But this is not an idea born in a
vacuum, every step of the way the ancient texts assure us that this was the true
history – one just needs to know the key to unlock these long forgotten secrets
and the will to embrace them.

Lastly we need to address the ramifications of this research, for
they are many. For, to the orthodox believer of the three Judaic religions this
whole concept may appear to be a heresy to be mocked and derided, but I hope
there are many readers out there with more open minds. The Jewish and Christian
hierarchy have delivered a simple creed to us, but it is one that is not fully
supported by the texts. They have taught us a tale of simple shepherds, but the
texts say again and again, from Abraham to Jesus, that these people were kings.
All I have done is to take the texts at their word and built a story on those
foundations. To understand this new creed does demand a readjustment to ones
religious outlook, but it is not as big an adjustment as one might expect. The
trade here, for Christians in particular, is one that dissolves the unique
divinity of Jesus but it delivers in return a Christian history that is
traceable back to the very start of the historical world, back into pre-dynastic
Egypt and beyond. It means that the family of Jesus and their descendants, can
trace their history through every Egyptian pharaoh, the longest recorded family
history in the world. Personally, I find such concepts both fascinating and
tantalising, it detracts nothing from the religious world to think that Jesus
was, perhaps, the Last of the Pharaohs.
