  1. David Down you refer to tells us with evidence that the pharaoh of Joseph is Sesostris I, not Djoser and the pharaoh of Abraham is Khufu and not Menes. I think you use partly the information of David Down and a long sojourn of 430 years to get to Djoser.
    I though the long sojourn was rejected by many scholars because of scripture violations.
    Can you tell me what make your evidence stronger than that of Down?

    • Yes I have decided to go with the Long Sojourn and no first intermediate period to align Joseph with Imhotep and Moses birth pharaoh with Amenemhet III which David Down suggests.

      The Bible itself gives the length of the Israelite Sojourn as 430 years in the Old Testament (Exodus 12:40-41). see also link below
