A coup prevented Moses from ascending the throne of the pharaohs, a
position for which - according to ancient Jewish texts, i.e. the 'Rabbinical
Writings' - he had been designated and educated. A number of rare sources
indicate that Moses continued to intervene in the political affairs of Egypt
from his place of exile in order to regain his claims to the power.
New light and
understanding are now brought to the image of Moses and this "forgotten
feud". This book unfolds the unresolved circumstances behind Moses’
extraordinary role in Egypt and the history of the Hebrews which led to
changes across the Middle East.
Several rare and old
sources reveal that in response to the untimely coup that prevented Moses
from ascending the throne of Egypt - a position for which, according to
ancient Jewish texts (the 'Rabbinical Writings'), he had been designated and
educated, - he instigated a major rebellion with the aid of Hebrew immigrant
workers and of many Egyptians. It was not until the end of this attempt that
these peoples sought another land and their own sovereignty.
The oldest Moses
traditions include information on rare astronomical phenomena, providing a
unique correlation to be revealed between source material and dating. In
addition, archaeological finds illuminate the data of the ancient scriptures
which also seem to provide clues to Moses' secret bases where the people of
the Exodus hid in "the desert" for many years.
A realistic background is
unfolded of the crossing over the Red Sea. For the first time in the history
of scholarship, larger contexts are developed of ancient mystery cults with
religious and magical contents and practices which were also politically
active and powerful in their own ways.

Many people are familiar with the expression 'Exodus', not least from
movies and books about the hard fate of the Jews - and it is originally
affiliated with the exodus of Moses and the Israelites from Egypt. Up to
now, insufficient evidence of this event has caused doubt about this
focal point of the Bible and about whether this story about the Jews
ever actually occurred. And if it did, when did it happen?
Astonishing finds and
evidence shed light on the historical circumstances including whether
the "Promised Land of Canaan" had been promised to others before the
It has long been
asserted, without substantiation that Ramses II was the "harsh Pharaoh"
mentioned in the Bible. But the historians of ancient times - as well as
new data from modern astronomical dating of the epoch - already indicate
that in reality Amenhotep II was the persecutor of the Israelites in the
15th century BC, i.e., 200 years before Ramses II.
After his 26-year reign,
Amenhotep did not - as opposed to other important pharaohs - leave
behind numerous edifices: Egypt seems to have lost a large number of
workers during his reign. Could this be due to factors such as Moses'
successful leadership of the exodus?
For the first time ever,
a military and historical analysis of the exodus from Egypt and the
invasion of Canaan is proven to be not only possible but probable - in
contrast to recent theological theories. This is the first time a study
has focused on the identity of the "first born" who were killed at the
time of the exodus. It traces the date of the action. The date of fall
of Jericho is based on the chapter in Joshua about "The day the sun
stood still"; the logical scientific information is presented explaining
this mysterious astronomical phenomenon described in the Bible.
The author has
open-mindedly ventured to ask the right questions, including those of
controversial sources in archaeology and ancient texts that reflect the
life of Moses as drastically different than the current perception - and
actually end up corroborating Moses' biblical and historical activities.

"... A depiction of Moses' integral role
in the early history of the Israelites, the likes of which - by virtue
of its abundance of details and ideas, plausibility and originality -
has perhaps never been seen before ...the reader should be forewarned,
however. This book presents an unexpectedly simple solution and as such
can hardly be read without forcing the reader to change his or her view
of the biblical scriptures ...".

Super inter-disciplinary - extremely thorough studies
Ove von Spaeth has succeeded in presenting the results in a
language and a style accessible to the man in the street. The books
receives top marks for their presentation tasks.
"... Ove von Spaeth,
author of a work translated as "Assassinating Moses", has made the following
identification already, but it is rather obvious once one realizes the avataric
nature of the original Moses. For Amram would appear to be an abbreviation of
Amun-Re in the manner one finds, peculiarly enough, the names of the cities of
Eastern Europe shortened in the language of Eastern Yiddish. - And "Sir Flinders
Petrie," as quoted by Robert Graves in The White Goddess, "holds that Moses is
an Egyptian word meaning 'unfathered son of a princess'." This story becomes
more familiar by the moment. ..."
