Secular literature commonly dates the Great Pyramid around 2550 BC. If this date is correct, then the Great Pyramid existed before the Flood of Noah’s day, which occurred around 2350 BC and destroyed everything on earth! Obviously, something is askew.
Discrepancies between traditional Egyptian chronology and the Bible are used to attack the Bible’s historical accuracy. Instead of simply assuming the accuracy of traditional Egyptian chronology and modifying the Bible, people should carefully examine traditional chronology to see if it is as reliable as some claim it to be.
Putting the Egyptian names to persons described in the Bible adds an exciting new dimension to our understanding of the past. Having a correct chronology for Egyptian history provides a basis for identifying archaeological findings which further support the accuracy of the Old Testament.
Rameses II was one of the longest ruling pharaohs, 67 years, and was Egypt’s most prodigious builder of temples and statues. Those which he did not build, he hacked the builders’ names off of and inserted his own.

Viewing the evidence from a biblical framework makes the histories of Egypt and the Old Testament fit together like two sides of a zipper.
While not an overtly Christian film, Patterns of Evidence supports the historicity of Moses and the reality of the Exodus.
Radiocarbon dating adds to evidence that Egyptian antiquity was not quite so very ancient.
This paper will look at the different possibilities that can be constructed concerning how long each dynasty lasted and how they relate to the biblical dates of the Flood, Tower, and Patriarchs.PDF Download
Why did God punish Pharaoh because of Abraham's deception? Is this not unjust? Elizabeth Mitchell, MD, explains the reasons for the plagues.
Down in the Egyptian sand lay the remains of a pyramid that was once nearly five stories tall. Was it around before the Flood?
What are historic details about the founding of Egypt?
Were there enough people to build the pyramids?
New evidence regarding the advanced technology evident in the ancient Egyptian pyramids is consistent with the Bible’s account of history. The evolutionary model of the history of early man presents man as an ignorant primitive gradually acquiring intellectual skills and technology. However, the biblical description of mankind’s dispersal from the Tower of Babel is consistent with the findings of advanced technology among ancient people all over the world.
Critics of the Bible say the pyramids were built long before Noah's Flood, so the Flood must have only been a local affair, not global.
Current Egyptian chronology consists of 30 dynasties, as compiled by the 3rd century BC Egyptian priest Manetho, chronologically bound by the Sothic theory proposed by Eduard Meyer.
