Re: Tut, Gershom and Moses
In Response To: Tut and Jehonadab/Elisha ()

Mr. Pope,

Tracy thinks you’re quite handsome wearing spurs.

Jeff at best thinks that…well…”at least we have him on horseback, that’s a good start”.

As for myself, I was wondering where and how General Haremhab “fit into the equation!”

There is a stone plate #1889 found in the Memphite tomb of General Haremhab that is not Egyptian but clearly Assyrian showing a prancing horse under a rider with one of the front legs raised from the ground, and also its mane arrangement, and the way the artist generally treats the horse, are eminently Assyrian. The Assyrians are credited with the development of cavalry; in the words of a Hebrew prophet, “Assyrians . . . horsemen riding upon horses.”

In 550 BC this stone plate would make total since.

Gershom (Pershom) meaning stranger, or cast out (in a reference to Moses/Akhenaten having fled Egypt) and Eliezer, meaning God is my help, were the two sons of Moses and Zipporah who were born in Median (modern Persia) while Moses lived there for many years with Jethro, prior to his return to Egypt for the Exodus (of Nebuchadnezzer).

Although their father is one of the most famous people of Bible History, relatively little is recorded about Gershom (Pershom) and Eliezer (who were half Levite through their father and half Mede through their mother), and unlike their cousins who succeeded Moses' brother Aaron in his role as high priest, Gershom and Eliezer did not take over their father's position as Israel's leader - Joshua, of the tribe of Ephraim, did.

Tut appears to be Per- Shom (Persian)!
