Great Archaeologist Nelson Glueck wrote, "It may be stated categorically that no archaeological discovery has ever controverted a Biblical reference. Scores of archaeological findings have been made which confirm in clear outline or exact detail historical statements in the Bible. And, by the same token, proper evaluation of Biblical description has often led to amazing discoveries."

One of the recent exciting discoveries in the field of Biblical history has been the Amarna Tablets. They describe the Exodus history from the "other side"! These tablets speak of how the "Habiru" or Hebrew and their great God cast fear into the hearts of the mighty Egyptian Pharoahs! As all Egypt lay awestruck in craven fear before the Most High God, the Lord redeemed and ransomed His people from slavery of more than 400 years in fulfilment of His promise to the Patriarch Abraham. The glorious Exodus prefigures our glorious delivery from slavery to Satan, which Christ Our Lord accomplished. That Egyptian civilization was one of the advanced civilizations even soon after the flood of Noah's time (around 3000 BC) is a known fact. About 1500 years later, that the Pharoah Akhenaten converted his pagan polytheistic country to a pagan monotheistic practice is also universally acknowledged. Why did he do it? Because he had seen the power of the monotheistic God, and had clearly seen the superiority of monotheism over polytheism. And how is it any tribe could be so successful against such an accomplished civilization with such a powerful fighting force? Only divine intervention as recorded in sacred history provides a credible answer. Some excerpts and a brief article. http://www.bible.ca/archeology/bible-archeology-maps-conquest-amarna-tablets-letters-akhenaten-habiru-abiru-hebrews-1404-1340bc.htm

1. Amarna Letter EA68

Storyline: Rib-Hadda, the mayor of Byblos warns pharaoh that the city of Sumur will be lost to the Hebrews.

Paraphrase of Tablet: "From Rib-Hadda mayor of Byblos (Gebal): King of all countries, Great King Pharaoh: The war of the Habiru forces is extremely severe, do not neglect Sumur lest all be joined to the Habiru."

2. Amarna Letter EA88

Storyline: Rib-Hadda, mayor of Byblos, warns that a non-Hebrew traitor named Abdi-Aširta, will capture the entire promised land from Byblos down to the Wadi El-Arish (border of Egypt). What an incredible statement! This is exactly what Joshua accomplished!

Paraphrase of Tablet: "From Rib-Hadda mayor of Byblos (Gebal): But if the king does not give heed to my words, then Byblos will be joined to Abdi-Ašrati, and all the lands of the king, as far as Egypt, will be joined to the Habiru."

3. Amarna Letter EA77

Storyline: Rib-Hadda, mayor of Byblos, warns that Byblos will be lost to the Hebrews and he is afraid for his life from his own townsfolk who might rise up and kill him!

Paraphrase of Tablet: "From Rib-Hadda mayor of Byblos: If no archers come out, all lands will be joined to the Habiru. I’m afraid the residents of Byblos will strike me down."

4. Amarna Letter EA144

Storyline: Zimreddi, mayor of Sidon, informs pharaoh that all the nearby cities have been lost to the Hebrews.

Paraphrase of Tablet: "From Zimreddi, mayor of Sidon to Pharoah: The war against me is very severe. All the cities that the king put in my charge, have been joined to the Habiru."

After they had seen and heard of all these great wonders, and a holy fear of the mighty hand of Almighty God had fallen on baby-killing, child-sacrificing pagans who had opposed God, and persecuted His people for centuries, you have people saying to Josue/Joshua things like:

Jos 2:9 "I know that the Lord hath given this land to you: for the dread of you is fallen upon us, and all the inhabitants of the land have lost all strength. 10We have heard that the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea at your going in, when you came out of Egypt: and what things you did to the two kings of the Amorrhites, that were beyond the Jordan: Sehon and Og whom you slew. 11And hearing these things we were affrighted, and our heart fainted away, neither did there remain any spirit in us at your coming in: for the Lord your God he is God in heaven above, and in the earth beneath.

3:7 "And the Lord said to Josue: This day will I begin to exalt thee before Israel: that they may know that as I was with Moses, so I am with thee also."

4:20 ... Josue pitched in Galgal, 21And said to the children of Israel: When your children shall ask their fathers, to morrow, and shall say to them: What mean these stones? 22You shall teach them and say: Israel passed over this Jordan through the dry channel. 23The Lord your God drying up the waters thereof in your sight, until you passed over: As he had done before in the Red Sea, which he dried up till we passed through : 24That all the people of the earth may learn the most mighty hand of the Lord, that you also may fear the Lord your God for ever. "

5:1 "Now when all the kings of the Amorrhites, who dwelt beyond the Jordan westward, and all the kings of Chanaan, who possessed the places near the great sea, had heard that the Lord had dried up the waters of the Jordan before the children of Israel, till they passed over, their heart failed them, and there remained no spirit in them, fearing the coming in of the children of Israel ... 13And when Josue was in the field of the city of Jericho, he lifted up his eyes, and saw a man standing over against him: holding a drawn sword, and he went to him, and said: Art thou one of ours, or of our adversaries? 14And he answered: No: but I am prince of the host of the Lord, and now I am come."
