Egyptian Pharaoh

Around 1500 BC during the 16th dynasty of Egypt, a Pharaoh was born.  His name was Jacob-Baal.  Translated “Lord Jacob”.

Very little is known about this Pharaoh.  There is only hieroglyphics mentioning his name and that he was part of the 16th dynasty…

One thought on “Egyptian Pharaoh

  1. Many names (and words) that we are familiar with today via Hebrew and the Bible are of Egyptian origin. Egyptian was after-all, a Semetic language. A name you may be familiar with is Ramses. Which is translated as:

    Ra (sun god) mss (lifted up)

    So the Biblical patriarch Moses (lifted up from the river bank as a child, and lifted up by God to lead his people) shares the same name, and the same meaning of his name with the pharaoh(s) Ramses.
