1728 BCE Jacob Enters Egypt
1711 BCE Jacob dies in Egypt
1657 BCE Joseph dies
1650 BCE (Egyptian archaeological timeline; people from north that were welcomed (no 2 historians agree on type of entry) in assume rule of Lower Egypt splitting Egypt into 2 Kingdoms. Jacob was second to Pharaoh at his death. Jacob's death would have created a power vacuum in rule, possible cause of split,* nevertheless it occurred and Hebrews ruled Lower Egypt) Word Hyksos is Egyptian and means 'people not native to Egypt or rulers of foreign lands.'] other sources, Josephus, says means shepherd king, Egyptian evidence suggest that rule was given to Hyksos due to sever famine.)
(There are only 2 ancient writings that discuss the Hyksos, Josephus & one earlier. However in recent archaeological discovers some have been discovered in Egypt that lend to Josephus’ account. A 1971 article in The Watchtower & later partly printed in the Insight book relies on pre-archaeological discoveries.)
(Enslavement started some time after 1650 BCE; ironically by own people. Some contend that the ruling class was mixed, Hyksos & Egyptian blood mixed. Similar to Joseph’s children.)
1593 Moses born
Hyksos Rule of Lower Egypt (Hebrews took control - It Divided Egyptian Kingdom; Ruled Lower Egypt; area around Nile Delta, Goshen & Mediterranean. The Hyksos introduced the horse & chariot to Egypt as well as composite bow. [Hebrews would have learned from Mesopotamia & Canaanite peoples.] Since Egyptians attempted to destroy everything related to Hyksos rule, data is sketchy. Some of these dates come from recent digs or vetted sources.)
???? Sakir-Har (Name & noted as ruler discovered in archaeological on doorway palace.)
1620 BCE Khyan (This is a Semitic name)
1585 BCE: Rahotep

Start Thutmosid Dynasty
1549-1524 BCE Ahmose I
1524-1503 BCE Amenhotep I (Pharaoh at time of Exodus)
1513 BCE Exodus
Only the Thutmosid Dynasty dates are fixed in history aside from those given above. Since we know for certain when Amenhotep I ruled it is an easy date to tie into the Biblical timeline.
