—Phase 3A – The Early Postdiluvian World (2321-1870 BC)—
—Period 3A(1) – Initial Settlement & Migrations (2321-2221 BC)—
Egypt’s Predynastic Hegemony (EPH)
The rulers of Egypt’s Predynastic Hegemony (EPH) were actually the kings of Babylon’s 1st Dynasty (B1). They ruled Egypt during this period. They were known as
Ukusi (EPH-01 = B1-01) – He was also known as Puru I, Ikshavu, and Cush. He ruled Egypt for 72 years (2298-2226 BC).
Khetm (EPH-02 = B1-03) and Ro (EPH-03) – He was also known as Puru II and Puru-in – Khetm was Ukusi’s son; Ro was Ketm’s son. They ruled Egypt for 40 years (2226-2186 BC), the first 5 years (2226-2221 BC) of which fell in this period.
The Peleg Disturbance occurred in 2221 BC, possibly when the orbits of the earth and the comet Venus nearly intersected. Probably a tectonic upheaval broke up the earth’s single land mass (Pangrea) into the continents and major islands that exist today – an event which the Hebrews called “the Division of the Land.”
—Period 3A(2) – Rise of Babylon (2221-2070 BC)—
Egypt’s Pre-Dynastic Hegemony (EPH) continued
The rulers of Egypt’s Pre-dynastic (EPH) Hegemony were the kings of Babylon’s 1st Dynasty (B1). They continued ruling Egypt for the first 82 years (2221-2139 BC) of this period. They were known as
Khetm (EPH-02) – He was also known as Dukh, Tukh, and Vri-taka. He was Ukusi’s son. He ruled Northern/Lower Egypt for 7 years (2226-2219 BC), the last 2 years (2221-2219 BC) of which fell in this period.
Ro (EPH-03) – He was also known as Puru II and Puru-in – He was Khetm’s son. He ruled Northern/Lower Egypt for 33 years (2219-2186 BC).
Ka-ap (EPH-04) – He was also known as Sargon, Sharguni, and Guni. He ruled Northern/Lower Egypt for 20 years (2186-2166 BC), at the end of which he turned the throne over to his son Menes.
Menes (EPH-05) – He was also known as Aha-manj, Asa-manja, Manasyu, and Mannis-tussu – He was Ka-ap’s son. He ruled Norther/Lower Egypt for 27 years (2166-2139 BC). He unified Egypt in 2139 BC and established Egypt’s 1st Dynasty.
Egypt’s 1st Dynasty (E01)
The rulers of Egypt’s 1st Dynasty (E01) were also kings of Babylonia. They were known in Egypt as pharaohs. They ruled Egypt for the last 69 years (2139-2070 BC) of this period
Menes (E01-01) (SL #01) – He was also known as Aha-men and Hor-aha in Egypt, as Mannis-tusu (B1-08) in Babylon, and as Aha-manj, Asa-manja, and Manasyu in the Indus Valley. He was Ka-Ap’s son and Rumish’s younger brother. He ruled a unified Egypt for 35 years (2139-2104 BC), the first 8 years (2139-2131 BC) under his father Sargon, the next 12 years (2131-2119 BC) under his brother Rimush, and the last 15 years (2119 BC) as sole ruler of the Babylonian Empire, which included Egypt. He was a mighty warrior. He died of a bee sting while in the British Isles.
(E1-02) Kourodes (SL #02) – He was Menes’s son. He was also known as Athothis I, Djer, Kourodes, and Zer-ta in Egypt and Naram-sin (B1-09) in Babylon. He ruled Egypt for 63 years (2104-2041 BC), the first 34 years (2104-2070 BC) of which fell in this period. During these last 34 years, Egypt was unified and peaceful.
The Terah Disturbance occurred in 2070 BC, possibly when the orbits of the earth and the comet Venus nearly intersected. Probably a titanic electric discharge between the two bodies confounded the Babylonians – or possibly all of mankind’s – ability to communicate in a single language, destroyed the Tower of Babel, and devastated much of the surrounding region.
— Period A(3) – Rise of Civilizations (2070-1870 BC)—
Egypt’s 1st Dynasty (E01) continued
(E01-02) Kourodes (SL #02) – He was Menes’ son. He was also known as Athothis I, Djer, Kourodes, Naram-sin, and Zer-ta. He ruled Egypt for 63 years (2104-2041 BC), the last 35 years (2070-2041 BC) of which fell in this period. These 35 years were a time of turmoil and division in Egypt, a consequence of the cataclysm in 2070 BC that destroyed the Tower of Babylon and confounded the people’s ability to communicate. During the last 6 years (2047-2041 BC) of his reign, Kourodes was his co-regent.
(E01-03) Kenkenes (omitted from SL) – He was also known as Sekhemka, Zet-ata, and probably Athosis II. He ruled Memphis under Kourodes for 6 years (2047-2041), unified Egypt in 2041 BC, and then ruled Egypt for 33 years (2041-2008 BC) as the third pharaoh of the Egypt’s 1st Dynasty (E01) (see above) and the first pharaoh of Egypt’s 3rd Dynasty (E03) (see below).
The 1st Terah Threat occurred in 2020 BC, possibly when the orbits of the comet Venus and the earth nearly intersected.
Aristarchus (E01-04) (SL #03) – He was also known as Necherophes, Uadji, and Uenephes. He ruled Egypt for 35 years (2008-1973 BC).
Spanios (SL #04) – He was also known as Dudu, Udimu, and Usaphaidos. He was co-regent during the last 20 years (1993-1973 BC) of Aritarchus’s reign, but never reigned as pharaoh.
Miebedos (E01-05) (numbered SL #05, but not named) – He was also known as Miabes. He ruled Egypt for 72 years (1973-1901 BC).
The 2nd Terah Threat occurred in 1970 BC, possibly when the orbits of the comet Venus and the earth nearly intersected.
Sempses – He was also known as Sephuris. He was Miebedos’s co-regent for 30-year (1964-1934 BC), but never reigned as pharaoh.
Bieneches – He was also known as Kerpheres, and Snefru. He was Miebedos’s co-regent for 33 years (1934-1901 BC), but never reigned as pharaoh.
The 3rd Terah Threat occurred in 1920 BC, possibly when the orbits of the comet Venus and the earth nearly intersected.
Egypt’s 3rd Dynasty (E03)
Egypt’s 3rd Dynasty (E03) lasted 140 years (2041-1901 BC).
Sekhemka (E3-01) – He was also known as Ka-Sekhem, Ka-Sekhemui, Kenkenes, and Zet-ata. He ruled Memphis/Sakkara for 6 years (2047-2041 BC) under (E1-02) Kourodes and then unified Egypt. He established Egypt’s 3rd Dynasty (E03) in Memphis/Sakkara, but also became the fourth pharaoh of Egypt’s 1st Dynasty. He ruled all Egypt for 24 years (2041-2015 BC) (see Kenkenes above).
Necherophes (E3-02) – He was also known as Aristarchus, Uadji, and Uenephes. He was co-regent with Sekhemka for 8 years (2023-2015 BC), ruled all Egypt for 22 years (2015-1993 BC), and finally ruled just Memphis/Sakkara again for 6 years (1993-1987 BC). During these last 6 years of his reign, Zoser was his co-regent. See Aristarchus above.
Zoser (E3-03) – He was also known as Djoser. He was co-regent with Necherophes for 6 years (1993-1987 BC) and then ruled Memphis/Sakkara for 23 years (1987-1964 BC). His 29 years of co-regency and reign were coincident with all 20 years (1993-1973 BC) of Spanios’s co-regency with Artistarchus (E01-04) and the first 9 years (1973-1964 BC) of Miebedos (E01-05)’s reign.
Sephuris (E3-04) – He was also known as Sempses. He ruled Memphis/Sakkara for 63 years (1964-1901 BC). During the last 33 years (1929-1901 BC) of his reign, Kerpheres, who was also known as Bieneches and Snefru, was his co-regent.
Egypt’s 4th Dynasty (E04)
Egypt’s 4th Dynasty (E04) succeeded Egypt’s 1st and 3rd Dynasties and lasted 101 years (1901-1800 BC), the first 31 years (1901-1870 BC) occurred in this period.
Osirophus (E04-01) (SL #07) – He was also known as Cheops, Khufu, and Sufi I. He established the Egypt’s 4th Dynasty and ruled Egypt for 23 years (1901-1878 BC).
Circa 1893 BC, Osirophus hosted Abraham, who had left Ur of the Chaldees and traveled first to Haran, then to Canaan, and finally to Egypt. He took a shine to Abraham’s half-sister and wife Sarah.
Osirophus is credited with building the largest of the pyramids at Giza, which has earned it the title “the Great Pyramid. It is one of the wonders of the ancient world and has engendered much speculation concerning its purpose, the manner of its construction, and whether or not the form and dimensions of its structure carry information concerning the past and the future of mankind. There are two facts concerning the Great Pyramid that are worth mentioning here.
The pyramid’s capstone is missing and the sarcophagus in the king’s chamber is empty. Archaeologists assume (a) that the capstone was the victim of either erosion or theft, along with much of the pyramid’s exterior sheathing, and (b) that the sarcophagus was emptied by thieves. Both are possible and reasonable explanations. On the other hand, the capstone may have been omitted for a reason and the sarcophagus may never have been full. The phrase ‘the stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner’ appears five times in the scriptures (Matthew 21:42, Mark 12:10, Luke 20:17, Acts 4:11, and 1 Peter 2:7) and there are many references in Scriptures to the sepulcher in which Jesus was laid being empty on the Sunday morning following the Friday on which he was laid to rest. Is it possible that, while he was a guest of Osirophus, Abraham shared with the pharaoh some details of the vision of the future which had been entrusted to him by God?
The pyramid’s peculiar interior design indicates that it might have served as a power plant. Archaeologists cannot assess anything here; they lack the necessary technical expertise. In his book, on the Great Pyramid, the engineer Christopher Dunn, who has a great deal of experience in designing and building manufacturing tools, demonstrates with reverse engineering that the Great Pyramid might have been a power plant using harmonic resonance. Moreover, in his book concerning the sculptures at Luxor and Karnak, dating from a period 2,000 years later in Egyptian history, he demonstrates that computer driven tools were necessary to create many of the temple figures that adorn the temples in these places. For example, the perfectly symmetrical facial features of Ramses II cannot have been produced with hammer and chisel. What the evidence of sophisticated technology in Egypt circa 1880 BC, less than 450 years after the Flood, suggests to me is that some of the scientific and technological knowledge developed in the Antediluvian Era was carried on the Ark and survived the Flood.
(E04-02) Sepchris (SL #08) – He was also known as Chephren, Kafre, and Sufi II. He ruled Egypt for 49 years (1878-1829 BC), the first 8 years (1878-1870 BC) of which fell in this period. He is credited with building the 2nd largest pyramid at Giza.
The Abraham Disturbance occurred 1870 BC, possibly when the orbits of the earth and the comet Venus nearly intersected and a titanic electric discharge between the two bodies destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah and much of the surrounding region and a titanic earthquake created the Great African Rift or its greater expansion, thereby eliminating the Vale of Siddim and creating the Dead Sea.
