Thera and the ExodusThis book presents a brand new interpretation of the biblical Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. It is shown that an eruption of the volcano on Thera, present day Santorini, caused the outbreak of a deadly disease in Egypt. In order to appease the anger of the gods, Amenhotep III ordered all first-born in Egypt to be sacrificed in a fire. Prince Tuthmosis, his first-born son, was first in line to be sacrificed in the fire, but narrowly escaped this horrific death. This event was recorded as the 'burning bush' episode in the Bible. Prince Tuthmosis became the biblical Moses and led a successful rebellion against his father. Amenhotep III and his army retreated to Nubia for a period of 13 years, the so-called Amarna period. Moses was joined by Solomon's army and together they plundered Egypt, destroying all its gods. It is shown the Solomon's Queen of Sheba was none other than Nefertiti, the beautiful wife of Akhenaten.
