The argument by some is that the option of shifting the archaeological periods by centuries (as proposed by David Rohl, John Bimson and others) should not even be considered.

RE: "Avalos’ argument that Jacob lived in a tent during his semi-nomadic years in southern Canaan is equally ridiculous, since, when Jacob settled permanently in Egypt's delta, he would have required a mudbrick house, not a tent, and would likely have chosen this ancestral design from north Syria (where he continued to have family contacts. 0000008670 00000 n 0000233063 00000 n Rohl’s previous best-selling books (“Pharaohs and Kings” and “Legend: The Genesis of Civilisation”) have been published throughout the world and are currently available in 12 different languages.

For example,Rohl redates the start of the reign of Ramesses II to 943 BCE (Exodus, p. 164), which would make him a contemporary of David and/or Solomon. “The Great Exodus Debate” (2:30pm on Sunday, December 13, 2015 at the Renaissance Charlotte Suites Hotel) pits agnostic Egyptologist David Rohl against biblical historian Michael Rood. 0000008283 00000 n 0000004206 00000 n 0000169610 00000 n 0000021085 00000 n The rest would be for wives, sisters, and children who died prematurely. 0000024368 00000 n 0000039832 00000 n The problem is that there are Canaanite theophoric names, BUT NO YAHWISTIC NAMES that would be distinctively Israelite.
