Imhotep was second in charge of Egypt.   He designed the Djoser Pyramid Complex at Saqqara.  He is also credited with saving his people from a seven year famine.  He was not of royal blood.  He was born a commoner.  When he died, he was burried in a tomb in a coffin like many of the Pharaohs.  Many years  after his death he was deified.  It has been suggested that Joseph and Imhotep may be one in the same person.

Joseph was Imhotep

  1. Another website says that Imhotep was born in a suburb of Memphis, Egypt and is the son of Kanofer, an architect, and Khreduonkh. If this is accurate information, then Imhotep and Joseph are not the same person. Joseph was sold, by some of his brothers, as a slave. He was then taken to Egypt and sold again. He was 17 yrs. old when this took place.
    Joseph was the 11th son of Jacob, son of Isaac, son of Abraham; Joseph’s mother was Rachel.
