    WAS MOSES THE PROPHET RAISED AS PRINCE RAMOSE IN THUTMOSIS III's EGYPTIAN COURT?

    There are very many indicators of this. Indeed, it is hard to arrive at any other interpretation of the facts. Several scholare have tried to identify Moses with other named princes of Egypt (eg. Amenmose, Wadjmose etc) but each finds serious objections. The only prince of Tuthmosis III's time who could fit the bill is Prince Ramose, the Crown Prince and heir-to-be of the Pharaoh himself. There area a good many confirming details to place the birth of Moses at around 1500 BC, perhaps a few years before, which is exactly when Ramose was also born. Any thoughts?

    What happened to Ramose? Was he forced to flee into exile for murder?

    Sorry for the delay Nick. Yes he kind of was exiled. Ramose led Pharaoh's army against the Kushites (Ethiopians) in the south. His victory there led him to being appointed Viceroy. He stayed at the court for a period of time after which Pharaoh declared him an exile and enemy of Egypt and they destroyed almost every reference to him in their records and also closed up his intended tomb in the "Valley of the Nobles" unused. Great shame surrounded him. And his suppression was parallel to, and probably also related to, that of Queen Hatshepsut. I believe that her sister Neferubity was the Egyptian foster-mother of Moses the child, raising him as Ramose. Needless to say, the legend of Moses tells a similar story but with some additional details, while other elements relating to the Egypian identity (Ramose) were written out of the Bibical records. Yet there are remnants to be found in more traditional Hebrew sources.
