Historians and scientist agree that the great pyramid of Egypt and other pyramids are at least several thousand years old. Even by today’s standards the great pyramid of Egypt itself is a wonder of the world. Several years ago a Japanese group tried to build a 1/3 scale model without success and so if today with all the modern technology we have at hand and we cannot build a copy; imagine at the time of Moses how the populous must have held the great pyramid in awe.
The bible Book of Exodus records that Moses was born in an era when the Children of Israel, were multiplying in numbers and the Pharaoh of Egypt thought they might help Egypt's enemies. Jochebed, Moses mother hides him when the Pharaoh ordered all newborn Hebrew boys to be put to death. Moses is adopted by the Egyptian royal family. However after killing an Egyptian slave-master, Moses flees across the Red Sea to Midian where according to the bible he meets the God of Israel in the form of the "burning bush". Moses requests the Pharaoh release the Israelites, but it takes ten plagues in Egypt before Moses can lead the Exodus of the Israelites out of Egypt and across the Red Sea, after which they camp put at Mount Sinai, where Moses receives the Ten Commandments.
The Old Testament of the bible provides us with a record of the flight of the Israelites from Egypt. The Old Testament contains 593, 493 words so one would think that in those half million or so words the authors would at least have mentioned in passing the tallest building in the world until the 20th century, the great pyramid. You could hardly miss it!
Such an omission of detail about Egypt in the Old Testament leads one to wonder as when it was written and by whom. Because the great pyramid was standing at the time of Christ and does not get a mention in either the old or new testaments one has to wonder who wrote the bible. According to the bible, we are told that Joseph and Mary took the baby Jesus into Egypt shortly after his birth to protect him from the wrath of King Herod, who would have had him killed. The Bible places Jesus in Egypt and he is not seen again until he is about 9 or 10 when the rabbis in Jerusalem marvel at his knowledge. One would think that even at that age Jesus would have known about the great pyramid and there would have been some passing reference to it even in the New Testament.
History records that in 600 BC the Greek mathematician Thales measured the height of the great pyramid of Egypt by comparing the height of its shadow to the height of his staff. So if six hundred years before Christ the Greeks, who were separated from Egypt by a sea, were able to travel there and marvel at the wonder of the great pyramid then why is it that the authors of the old and new testaments don’t even give the great pyramid a mention?
