Staff of Moses

A team of British and Jordanian archaeologists has recently excavated the remains of an ancient Hebrew sanctuary dating from the very time Moses is thought to have lived.  Remarkably, in the nineteenth century, a tomb was discovered there that may actually have been the final resting place of  Moses. Inside, along with other artifacts, was a 3500-year-old staff inscribed with hieroglyphics identifying its owner as the court official Tuthmosis, who some identify with  Moses.

 

Moses is neither an Israelite nor Jewish name. Rather, it is derived from Tuthmosis and it was Pharoah Tuthmosis I’s daugher, Nefure or Nefurer, who found Moses and was allowed to keep him as her own. Tuthmosis I was a commoner and he would have passed on the position of the Pharoah, Tuthmosis II to Moses, because he had no sons of his own at that point.

 

Moses had been educated into the Wisdom of the Egyptians, but by faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be called a son of Pharaoh’s daughter. And so when Nefure’s father, the Pharoah, Tuthmosis I died, she was 15 and ascended to regnancy as Pharoah Hatsepshut – a female Pharoah who dressed as a man, in order to rule as Pharoah and who was accepted as such. Moses became her steward, Senenmut (also called Hatshepsut Xnem Amen). He appears in literature until about the 16th year of her reign. Although Tuthmosis I died and his daughter ascended to the throne, he did have sons by secondary wives who were Nefure’s half brothers.

 

Moses when 40 years old slays an Egyptian who is beating a Hebrew slave (Ex 2:12) and flees Egypt (Ex 2:15) because pharaoh (Moses replacement) wanted to kill him. He flees to Midian/Midren, and Hatshepsut marries her half brother who becomes Tuthmosis II. It was because of this half brother that he had to flee, because Tuthmosis I had wished Moses to become Tuthmosis II and so although he refused, he was seen by the half brother as a rival

 

Thutmoses III was Moses of the bible.
Legend has it, that when Thutmoses was 3 years old he playfully knocked the crown from the queen head. A bad omin to the high preist of Egypt, the childs intention must be tested, they brought two bowls and sat them in front of the baby Thutmoses III. One bowl was filled with gold, and the other with hot coals. If the child choses the gold, we shall have to kill him they said, but if he choses the hot coals we shall let him live.
The baby Moses grabbed a hot coal and through it in his mouth. Thus he was maimed for life, and he was slow of tounge and slow of speech. when he went infront of the burning bush.


The Moses of the bible was Tutmoses, Akenaten’s elder brother who was ousted from the family because he refused to bow to the Gods of the day.

 

God infused Moses’ staff with the power to bring down the plagues of hail and fire, turn day to night, the Nile to blood and part the Red Sea.

 

When the Israelites arrive at the Mountain of God Moses uses his sacred staff to create a miraculous spring..

 

Graham Phillips is certain it is the actual staff that the Bible asserts Moses used to perform the miracles of the Exodus is in the  Birmingham museum.

 

His claims are disputed by the curator of Birmingham Museum, Phil Watson.

There is no way this is moshes staff. His final resting place is even a mystery even among angels.

I agree with you, his staff is also know to be of Sapphire.

Where is the proof?
The English used is somewhat haphazard and the logic dances about. Perhaps the text could be revised and expanded to clarify, aid understanding and establish reference sorces.

It is written that Moses asked Almighty God for the assistance of his brother Aaron because he was a more fluent speaker but there is no mention in the Holy Book that I have found that labels Moses as pyrotechicaly impaired. So what is the source of this conjecture?

The references to pharoes again lacks provenance in context and the veiled implied conection to Tutankhamen suggests sleight of seductive logic.

The staff in itself is somewhat irrelevant today as the power it manifested came from Almighty God and the staff was just a symbol for Moses to inspire awe and demonstrate connection with Almighty God.
Moses was a Holy Prophet PBUH

I am not quallified to make definitive statements I comment solely on the basis of what I believe based on my flawed human understanding.

All perfect praise and glory belongs only to Almighty God the One the Only The Infinite.

Peace
