Mod­ern his­to­ri­ans and schol­ars have debat­ed the con­tro­ver­sial the­o­ry that Pharaoh Akhen­at­en, vil­i­fied and deposed for estab­lish­ing monothe­ism in Egypt, was also Moses of the Exo­dus. Author Shel­don Lebold sug­gests, from an exam­i­na­tion of evi­dence from a vari­ety of sources, that cru­cial pieces of the sto­ry have been over­looked. He gives an analy­sis of ancient texts, his­tor­i­cal doc­u­ments and con­tem­po­rary research. He not only presents the Lega­cy of Moses and Akhen­at­en from a Jew­ish per­spec­tive, but also demon­strates how one man’s vision laid the foun­da­tions for Judaism as we under­stand it today.
