There is good evidence to be found within the Bible, Torah and Koran that indicates that the biblical patriarchs were pharaohs of Egypt, they were not poor shepherds but the Hyksos Shepherd pharaohs of Egypt. The biblical exodus was therefore the Hyksos exodus from Egypt, a historical event where some half a million people evacuated Egypt after a civil war with the Theban pharaohs. Having found the biblical Saul in the historical record, it became apparent that there were some 'new' historical references to the biblical Jesus. Jesus was descended from this Hyksos royal vine, a Hyksos prince in exile. He was the governor of Tiberias, the rebel leader who led an army trying to save Jerusalem from the rebel Jewish factions and he died in AD65 after the revolt failed -- some thirty years after the presumed crucifixion. Jesus, Last of the Pharaohs is a new and fantastic adventure through the Biblical texts, with dramatic re-interpretations of the old creed at every twist and turn in the story. Yet despite the unbelievable nature of some of these claims, the fact is that all of the arguments in this book are fully supported by the established Biblical and historical texts.Theologians and historians cannot argue with the underlying thesis in this book: it is written in black and white-they can only dispute the radical interpretation being placed upon those texts.

I had an open mind, with no vested self-interest, for or against. I wanted to hear what he had to say. As I went along, I realized I was going to have to accept that not everything Ellis said was going to be set on solid ground. But that didn't have to invalidate everything. I came to realize that if he could convince me, beyond reasonable doubt, that even ONE of the biblical patriarchs was actually a pharaoh, then EVERYTHING else we've "learned" suddenly falls flat on its face.
Folks...his analysis of Abraham sold me. Sold! It was the most convincing of all the patriarchs, and one he addressed very early in the book. I was completely sold on Ellis' reasoning, and then he got to the coup de gras: the mambre tree. I almost fell over. He had already convinced me, and then he made that connection. From there on out, I had no choice but to at least give his ideas a fair shake.
Do I think he proved all his ideas? Not at all. Some theories didn't have enough evidence to completely prove anything. But if ONE patriarch can be reasonably be proven to be a pharaoh, doesn't everything else we know suddenly fall flat? And Abraham, the original patriarch for Judaism, Islam, and Christianity...was the most convincing of them all. From there, all bets are off.
This book changed my view of not only history, but present society. Suddenly the whole world looks like a different place to me. If you're open to a life-changing experience, read this book.
The central thesis, that the Israelite leaders were actually the Hyksos pharaohs of Egypt, has a distinct ring of truth to it. I, for one, think Ellis is probably right here, but of course this small change changes every aspect of the biblical story.
On the other hand, Ellis is not presenting a religious book, and in general, he avoids the religious perspective of the ancients. This causes him to focus on the earth bound perspectives of the archaeology. To restore the holistic images behind the ancient perspective it is mandatory that the ancient metaphysics be applied. Metaphysics was the focus of all monumental cultures. They were driven by the desire for "higher science" rather than the mundane quest for "material science." The ancients saw the universe through rational material perceptions and emotional spiritual perspectives. In fact, their primary objective in the monuments they created was to save the lost emotional spiritual perspective of a primordial Golden Age when "higher science" represented the "Word of God."
A reader who comprehends the repressed metaphysics of modern Western culture will recognize the evolutionary path of our heritage through all of the books Ellis has written on the genre. Unfortunately, most readers are looking for entertainment rather than evolutionary theological wisdom. They will be biased to see the Pharaoh Jesus in the books of Ellis rather than the God Jesus, which the ancients were attempting to convey. To those few who seek Divine Truth and have the perseverance to pass between these "clashing rocks," the Dove of Peace will emerge in the Elysian Field of the Golden Age when Pharaohs were Great Houses of the Creator's Dream of Eternal Life.
Because if Mr. Ellis is right, it means those who follow Christianity, Judaism and Islam would be forced to accept that the foundations of their religious beliefs and traditions are simply not what they know them to be. I am one of those people.
Thus, my re-reading of certain passages was not because they were poorly written but more so because Mr. Ellis kept leading me to fact-based, well-referenced conclusions that were simply too difficult to reject.
Sometimes he goes off on wild tangents that make you think either he's lost his mind or you've mistakenly started reading a different book that has a very similar cover. But then you see it coming like a freight train of truth. And you understand where he's going. And then what was very out of focus and seemingly unrelated suddenly becomes very focused and very connected.
Mr. Ellis has masterfully undertaken to piece together an ancient puzzle that has been obscured over the centuries. Not every piece of this puzzle is there. He admits that. But while some may be tempted to throw the puzzle out, he simply works around the pieces that are missing and presents a picture of what is most likely the truth about the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt and the Patriarchs of the Old Testament. And if you have enough puzzle pieces surrounding the piece that is missing and you put them together, you know what the missing puzzle piece looks like. Their stories are so clearly intertwined that you'd have to make to cognizant choice to reject all of the puzzle pieces that fit together very neatly because of those that are missing.
But 5 stars?
Yes. Since finishing this book I've purchased no less than a dozen other books about similar topics introduced to me by the author or that were referenced by the author. Good grief, I am reading the works of Josephus for Egyptian Christ's sake. I can't think of another book in recent memory that's caused so much welcome disruption in my life.
