Customer Questions & Answers for
Baker Ancient Egypt and the Old Testament

The role of Egypt in the Old Testament, particularly the Pentateuch, is a significant one. John Currid's Ancient Egypt and the Old Testament offers an in-depth study of that role sheds valuable light on this important aspect of Israel's history and Scriptures.

After surveying the scholarly interest in Egypt and the Bible and highlighting the uniqueness of the Hebrew worldview, Currid proceeds through the Old Testament canonically, showing Egyptian influences throughout. He explores the creation story, Joseph narrative, Serpent confrontation, ten plagues, route of the Exodus, Solomon's contacts with Egypt, the relationship of Hebrew poetry to Egyptian wisdom literature, and the links between Hebrew prophecy and Egyptian magic and soothsaying. The result is an enlightening guide to Egyptian influences on Israelite history.

Ancient Egypt and the Old Testament will serve as a text in courses on archaeology and the Old Testament, Old Testament history, and Old Testament backgrounds.
