Who Lived When?
Egyptologists identify 31 ?dynasties? of Egyptian kings and speak of the Old Kingdom (Dynasties 3-6), the Middle Kingdom (Dynasties 11,?12), and the New Kingdom (Dynasties 18-20). But this way of reckoning is far from accurate. It involves questionable and fragmentary writings and may even include several kings ruling in different regions at the same time, rather than a succession ruling one after the other.
When Moses began writing the first books of the Bible, he followed what apparently was the Egyptians? own custom of referring to their king as ?Pharaoh,? without using a personal name. Thus, we do not know the name of the Pharaohs that Abraham and Joseph knew or which one ruled at the time of Israel?s exodus from Egypt. However, the title ?Pharaoh? later began to be coupled with the king?s own name, making it possible to link Biblical events with the Egyptian king list. Here are some of the Pharaohs of particular interest to a student of the Bible:
Akhenaton (of the so-called 18th Dynasty) was a fervent worshiper of the sun disk Aton. In 1887 a collection of some 377 clay tablets was found at Tel el-Amarna, about 200?miles [320?km] south of Cairo. These interesting tablets were diplomatic correspondence received by Akhenaton and his father Amenhotep?III. Included were letters from the rulers of Jerusalem, Megiddo, Hazor, Shechem, Lachish, Hebron, Gaza, and other city-states in Palestine. Perhaps written shortly before Israel entered Canaan, these letters reveal warring feuds and intrigue. They also show that each town had its own king, as the Bible book of Joshua indicates.
Tutankhamen, a son-in-law of Akhenaton, is the famed ?King Tut? whose splendid golden tomb furnishings were uncovered by archaeologists and have been displayed in various museums. These furnishings are an outstanding demonstration of the wealth of the Pharaohs. It was wealth such as this that Moses had earlier turned his back on when he ?refused to be called the son of the daughter of Pharaoh, choosing to be ill-treated with the people of God rather than to have the temporary enjoyment of sin.??Hebrews 11:24,?25.
Merneptah was of the ?19th Dynasty.? On a victory monument found in a temple at Thebes, this Pharaoh recorded that ?Israel is laid waste, his seed is not.? This is the only direct mention of Israel as a nation yet found in ancient Egyptian records. While evidently an idle boast, this claim seems to indicate that the Israelite conquest of Canaan had already occurred. Thus, that conquest of 1473?B.C.E. must have occurred between the time Akhenaton received the Tel el-Amarna letters and the days of Merneptah.
This would put his death at sometime before 1473 BCE.
That is the best answer I can come up with.
