The Amarna age was a time of social, economic and cultural transformation in Egypt that impacted the lives of the Patriarchs. (76 min.)
In this sixth lecture in Dr. Neiman’s eight-part series on the first chapters of the book of Genesis, Dr. Neiman draws a detailed picture of Egypt during the Amarana age. The Amarna age was a time of social, economic and cultural transformation in Egypt. The internal conflict in Egypt prevented the Pharaohs from exercising control over his empire as revealed in the tablets excavated in Amarna. Dr. Neiman postulates that this internal chaos left the land of Canaan wide open and vulnerable to invaders like Abraham and his cousin Lot.
