Last night I saw part of the new Discovery channel special, Rameses: Wrath of God or Man? Did anyone else see it?
I am interested in other people’s thoughts about it.
For instance, the show kept insisting that religious tradition fingers Rameses II as the Pharoh of Exodus, but is that really true? I don’t think the Pharoh’s name is mentioned.
Also, I never did hear the evidence for why this skull was supposed to belong to Rameses first-born, who has a really long name, let me look it up, Amun-her-khepeshef, and why this particular skull, out of the others found in the same tomb, would belong to the first born. Since I didn’t watch the whole program, did anyone else catch that part?
Also, the skull has a big dent in it, as if the person (allegedly Amun-her-khepeshef) died from a blow to the head, and the documentarians seem to be putting forth that if the first-born son died from a blow to the head, then the plagues and the Exodus is not true, at least not as in the Bible.
But, does Exodus say specifically how the Angel of Death would kill? It could be that the Angel could cause another person to become angry and murder, or the Angel could take the life of someone who was already wounded and laying ill, couldn’t he?
Anyway, any thoughts or observations about the show?
