    Exactly who was King Sargon and was the birth story of Moses stolen from this King 2,000 years later?

    I was hoping people would do a little research and maybe tell me......LOL



    The Legend of Sargon of Agade

    The birth story of Moses (Exod. 2:1-10), probably recorded during the tenth century B.C., reflects the pattern found in the birth account of King Sargon of Agade who lived near the end of the third millennium B.C. It would seem practicle to hide a child and allow it to be found by the rich to prevent its destruction. The Sargon account reads:

    Sargon, the mighty king of Agade, am I.
    My mother was a lowley; my father I knew not.
    The brothers of my father loved the mountain.

    My city is Azupiranu, which is situated on the bank of the Euphrates.
    My lowley mother conceived me, in secret she brought me fort.
    She placed me in a basked of reeds, she closed my entrance with bitumen,
    She case me upon the river, which did not overflow me.
    The river carried me, it brought me to Akki, the irrigator.
    Akki, the irrigator, in the goodness of his heart lifted me up;
    Akki, the irrigator, as his own son....brought me up;

    Akki, the irrigator, as his gardener appointed me.
    When I was a gardener the goddess Ishtar loved me,
    And for four years I ruled the kingdom.

    The blacked-headed peoples I ruled, I goverened;
    Mighty mountains with axes of bronze I destroyed.
    I ascended the upper mountains/
    I burst through the lower mountains.
    The country of the sea I besieged three times;
    Dilmun I captured.
    Unto the great Dur-ilu I went up, I....
    .......I altered....
    Whatsoever king shall be exalted after me,
    .......
    Let him rule, let him govern the black-headed peoples;
    Mighty mountains with axes of bronze let him destroy;
    Let him ascend the upper mountains,
    Let him break through the lower mountains;
    The country of the sea let him besiege three times;
    Dilmun let him capture;
    To great Dur-ilu let him go up.

    According to a folktale, Sargon was a self-made man of humble origins; a gardener, having found him as a baby floating in a basket on the river, brought him up in his own calling. His father is unknown; his own name during his childhood is also unknown; his mother is said to have been a priestess in a town on the middle Euphrates. Rising, therefore, without the help of influential relations, he attained the post of cupbearer to the ruler of the city of Kish, in the north of the ancient land of Sumer. The event that brought him to supremacy was the defeat of Lugalzaggisi of Uruk (biblical Erech, in central Sumer). Lugalzaggisi had already united the city-states of Sumer by defeating each in turn and claimed to rule the lands not only of the Sumerian city-states but also those as far west as the Mediterranean. Thus, Sargon became king over all of southern Mesopotamia, the first great ruler for whom, rather than Sumerian, the Semitic tongue known as Akkadian was natural from birth, although some earlier kings with Semitic names are recorded in the Sumerian king list. Victory was ensured, however, only by numerous battles, since each city hoped to regain its independence from Lugalzaggisi without submitting to the new overlord. It may have been before these exploits, when he was gathering followers and an army, that Sargon named himself Sharru-kin ("Rightful King") in support of an accession not achieved in an old-established city through hereditary succession. Historical records are still so meager, however, that there is a complete gap in information relating to this period.

    I shared the following awhile back in another thread.

    “The language which is called Hebrew today is actually Babylonian or Aramaic as the Nash Papyrus, mercantile document and the Elephantine Aramaic Papyri proved;” said Amariel. “This language was adopted by the Hebrew people when they were taken to Babylon as captives. Hebrew/Phoenician ceased being a spoken language by all and became a language of prayer, study, and/or reading, the Torah, until later when the Torah itself was transcribed into Babylonian in 440 B.C.E. by Ezra the scribe. It was translated in order that people could read it and keep the Law. It became what is known as the modern square Hebrew writing. This Babylonian script became the writing of the people. The words were Hebrew/Phoenician but the letters were square Babylonian/Aramaic writing. When in 70 C.E. the Romans attacked the homeland of the Phoenician/Hebrew people and scattered them throughout the world.”

    If the ancient "Hebrew" language is actually Babylonian or Aramaic, then it necessarily follows that so is ancient Hebrew literature, which means that all the so-called Hebrew patriarchs, legends, myths, etc. are.....(at least in the pre-Exilic period).

    They are "cousins".

    Phoenicians are closer to the Lybians (Phut) and the Palestinians (Canaanites).

    I stated some facts in the following related to the Phoenicians and a man named Phineas Farsaith (variable spelling).

    http://destee.com/forums/showpost.php?p=513384&postcount=1

    According to a text known as the Irish Pedigrees he was a prophet who taught the Phoenician alphabet to the ancient Egyptians during the time of Moses and he also is supposedly one of the progenitors of the Scotch/Irish who fled from Egypt and later settled in Galicia.

    Again, this is the group also known as the Grimaldi who spread that R1b Haplogroup into the Iberian peninsula and the Levant. They are related to the present Libyans and Somalis and also known as the "Erythraean" (ie Meditid).

    There also followed Sargon I or Sharru-ken reigned as king of the old-Assyrian Kingdom from ca. 1920 BC to 1881 BC and another Sargon II ( Akkadian Šarru-kên "legitimate king", reigned 722 – 705 BC) an Assyrian king.

    Neither had the impact on civilization that Sargon The Great of Akkad had though.
