Moses and Akhenaten                                              click for review          click to order

In a stunning retelling of the Exodus story, Osman details the events of Moses/Akhenaten's life: how he was brought up by Israelite relatives, ruled Egypt for seventeen years, angered many of his subjects by replacing the traditional Egyptian pantheon with worship of the Aten, and was forced to abdicate the throne. Retreating to the Sinai with his Egyptian and Israelite supporters, he died out of the sight of his followers, presumably at the hands of Seti I, after an unsuccessful attempt to regain his throne.

Mr. Osman's new book is surprisingly straightforward when compared with today's confusing Dead Sea Scroll (DSS) theories. The 1st Century A.D. Jewish historian, Josephus, identified the Essenes as one of the four major Jewish sects of that period. Mr. Osman demonstrates that the name "Essene" is to be translated as "follower of Jesus (Essa)." This obvious literal translation had been overlooked, because of previously unquestioned assumptions about the novel origins of Christianity in the first Century A.D.

Jesus in the House of the Pharaohs                         click for review          click to order

Using the evidence available from archaeology, the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Koran, the Talmud and other biblical sources, Ahmed Osman provides a compelling case that both Jesus and Joshua were one and the same - a belief echoed by the early Church Fathers - and that this person was, likewise, the pharaoh Tutankhamun, who ruled Egypt between 1361 and 1352 B.C.E. and was regarded as the spiritual son of God. Originally published as The House of the Messiah by Harper Collins.

Osman contends that the Essene Christians - who followed Jesus' teachings in secret after his murder - only came into the open following the execution of their prophet, John the Baptist, by Herod, many centuries later. Yet it was also the Essenes who, following the death of Tutankhamun and his father Akhenaten (Moses), secretly kept the monotheistic religion of Egypt alive. The Essenes believed themselves to the people of the New Covenant established between their Lord and themselves by the Teacher of Righteousness, who was murdered by a wicked priest.

In this work Osman presents a well argued and convincing theory written in a style accessible to everybody, not only to the specialised reader. However, the radical view here presented that Akhenaten and Moses are in fact one and the same person, does demand an open mind and a temporary suspension of the religious assumptions most of us have learnt from an early age. This book is definately worth the effort to find and read.

The Hebrew Pharaohs of Egypt                                click for review          click to order

Ahmed Osman single-handedly moves the goal post of biblical scholarship In the Hebrew Pharaohs of Egypt. In this fascinating and thought provoking book he successfully narrows the search for the historical Hebrew patriarchs by giving us a novel and persuasive case for a secret lineage of the patriarch Joseph.

Ahmed Osman painstakingly outlines how the roots of Christian belief sprang from Egypt and not from Judaeat. He shows how the major tenets of Christian belief - the One God, the Trinity, the hierarchy of heaven, life after death, and the virgin birth - are all Egyptian in origin.
