The Ipuwer Papyrus and The 10 Plagues of Egypt

"The Ipuwer Papyrus and The 10 Plagues of Egypt - A common argument against the accuracy of the Bible and its characters is "Science has disproven the Bible." However there is a science that has continually confirmed Biblical history over and over again. The field of Archeology which seeks to uncover the mysteries of the past and confirm the known record continues to unearth evidence of people, cultures and events from the Bible. In this lesson Michael walks through the discovery of the Ipuwer Papyrus and its striking similarity to the events of the book of Exodus. The Ipuwer Papyrus seems to be an eye witness account from an Egyptian poet of several catastrophes that struck Egypt which mirror the widely known ten plagues of Egypt from the Bible. Using clues from scripture (1st Kings 6:1) we can approximate the date of the Exodus around 1440 BC which matches the approximate date of the papyrus (a large number of scholars place it around 1440 BC while others approximate it in ranges from 1290 to 1550 BC). This is another case of the science of archeology confirming the Biblical record of history.
