Exodus Debunked: Slave trade was not common in Ancient Egypt (Video)


“Slavery in Egypt is actually one of the biblical archeologists’ biggest disappointments. It is almost common knowledge now amongst Egyptologists that the Pyramids, long thought to have been built by the crack of the whip, were actually built by paid labor

Indeed, one of the most prominent themes we find in the Israelite stories is the theme of “slavery”. The stories of the Jewish Patriarchs of Abraham, Joseph, and Moses are all stories of slaves being bought and sold.

Throughout most of its three-thousand-year kingdom, slave-trade was not practiced in ancient Egypt. Slavery, as a public and widespread culture, was introduced in Egypt at the very late period of its Ancient kingdom (during the 4th-3th century BC and after the Greek conquest).

But why didn’t Slave trade prosper in Ancient Egypt? In the short film we put that question to Professor. Mustafa El-Abbadi, the renowned historian of Greco-Roman Egypt.

So, If ancient Egypt had no public markets for the trade of slaves where they were bought and sold, then we have to wonder how on earth Joseph ‘The Israelite Patriarch’ was ever introduced and sold in Ancient Egypt as the story goes.

Watch the video (in HD) and discover the true story of slavery in Ancient Egypt that absolutely debunks the biblical narrative about that Ancient land.

P.S. I expect many who will watch this video (and may be will get a little bit irritated) to go and dig for the key words “Egyptian slave” at Google, for (fast and furious) vindication. They will get loads of (misinterpreted) results, where “servant” in the ancient Egyptian language is often translated as “slave”.

To put it in a nutshell, Ancient Egypt knew servants and cheap laborers. As for slaves (prisoners of war), they would have also turned into household servants of the royal and uppermost class. But they were few, and definitely not as many as an overwhelming 2 million slaves, in a land as Ancient Egypt that had a population of nearly 3-4 million people at the time of the alleged biblical Exodus.

  1. Modern archaeology has supplied an elegant hypothesis that explains the legendary Egyptian captivity of the “Israelites.” Egypt had been invaded and occupied by the Hyksos, another Canaanite tribe who ruled them for two and a half centuries. When the Egyptians finally expelled the Hyksos, they built strong border fortifications on their northeastern frontier, which was the direction from which the invaders had come. The defenses consisted of a number of mud-brick forts, whose ruins have been dated to the putative time of the mythical Exodus.

    Some of these forts enclosed oases the proto-Jews had freely used to water their flocks. It is believed that the Egyptians allowed the tribesmen to use these precious resources, essential to survival in the unforgiving harsh desert but now part of Egypt’s domain, only in exchange for their labor making new bricks for the forts. It is not hard to see how this would be passed down as a legend of enslavement, as the tale was told and retold around desert campfires by the unsophisticated primitives who had come into such inauspicious contact with a mighty advanced civilization.

    • You said it “it was believed” like believing in Easter Bunny. And where is the evidence ?

  2. More evidence of the flim flammery the joos foisted on the ignorant. Procaliming to be such innocent victims of prejudice all the while guilty of the worst crimes they accuse others of doing to them. Liars all.
    The Scofield Bible being one of the biggest frauds ever brought forth by this tribe of liars, thieves and murderers has convinced millions of xtian in America to blindly support the zionist state of israel. Xtian zionism is a poison that has eaten away at the very foundations of America. The idiocracy who continue to believe the nonsense of israel being a jooish state are the worst kind of fools, are just as responsible for the damage and destruction done in the name of israel and the murder of millions of innocent men, women and children. Xtian zionism has blood dripping from its hands.
    Now someone tell me I’m going to burn in a lake of fire for saying this.

  3. You are also one of those who believes the story written by Jews !
    What if all this took place much before 3000 years.
    Joseph was sold and worked as house servant, now you call that servant or slave. It was the time when Nubian were ruling Egypt.
    Jews were siding with them when the Egyptians defeated Nubian so Jews were taken as war bounty, call them slaves or servants.
    What is the oldest record you have in Egypt?
    Could the old record be destroyed by one of the invasions by out side forces,
    What all was destroyed at Alexandria library when Romans destroyed it ?

  4. The usual “poor victim story” of the Joos to gain sympathy. The whole history is full of those kind of lies by those desert bandits accusing their enemies of their own sins.History since the last iceage is rigged in their direction. And now they try to destroy all evidence of their former crimes by wars in middle east.
