geesh well how many type cast joseph characters are in egypt and how many are actually USED in the bible? Do you have a chapter on what the actually egyptians/mesopotamians "picked" from the type cast pool(joseph, moses, jacob, etc.)? Is there a rule by the author in how many will be set to be used in the bible narration? i.e lets say if in the whole dynastic period 10 (type cast characters) were used by egyptians and the author of the bible only chooses to use 3 of the main ones for the bible.
I hope i articulated my question well enough for you to understand lol
