I've been thinking about this based on the knowledge I've gained at this site. I'd like to share some thoughts with you. Note that I'm not saying this is what actually happened but this is a probable hypothesis given the facts and assumptions that we have. First I start with the premise the ancient Kemet recognized only ONE Supreme Being or God. They gave this God many names according to the divine principles associated with his attributes and interactions with nature and man. This is where the Israelites got the notion of giving God many names--Jehovah Rapha, Jehovah Jireh etc. Now the Hyksos (Israelites) sojourned in Kemet as nomads. Therefore they were exposed to the open practices and ceremonies of Kemetic spirituality but were not privy to the esoteric meanings behind these practices. Moses (or the body of leaders represented by the name Moses) having grown up in Pharaoh's court would have a deeper understanding though not necessarily a complete understanding of Kemetian spiritual matters (Acts 7:22). He also knew his people--what they could and could not fathom. This is why in the wilderness he was able to give the people an exoteric version of what he had learned in Kemet. These are people coming out of a nomadic traditian who had really no sense of themselves as a people with a distinct culture. It was necessary for Moses to make them believe his teachings belonged to them as a people in order to establish them as a people. They would not have embraced his teachings as hand-me-downs from another people. Nor could they have understood the deeper esoteric teachings in which Moses had been educated. For this reason an "our God against the gods of the Egyptians" situation was created. This is unfortuanate. Both Moses and Jesus tried to move the people forward into the esoteric truths behing the Mosaic Law but the leaders--the Pharisees, Sadducess and scribes--who profited so much from the exoteric exercises of the religion would have none of this. Anyone want to offer an opinion or addendum to these ideas?
