More questions than answers…..
UPDATE: I’ve been searching for other photos of this statue and the majority of credible sites I have found state this is a statue of Senenmut with Hatshepsut’s daughter, Nefurere. What I can not determine is why the child has a side pony tail which a prince (male child) of Egypt wears.
If you checked in over the weekend, you know what I was watching on television last night! I was transfixed to the tv with notepad and Diet Dr. Pepper (yes, I slipped) and furiously took notes during the airing of Discovery Channels, Lost Queen of Egypt.
I’ve got to work a little while right now, so I’ll recap later. But a little teaser…see this statue above? It is supposedly of Hatshepsut (the princess who may have found Moses) HOWEVER! She only had one daughter and this image shows her with a male child….Could it be Moses? huh, huh??
I’ve got to research on this for a while ..because I have all kinds of time like that…:)) This wasn’t on the show by the way…I found this after digging around on my own…(no pun intended, hardy har)
Be back later!
(Shelly, like the label?? :)
i’m asking our reference librarian about this….
he knows more than God!
Oh, I LOVE researching things like this!! Let us know what you find out! Something I want to research when I have extra time is… is Lazarus still alive? He died once and was raised from the dead, and the scripture says it is appointed unto man ONCE to die. SO… did he die again??? I may have to go find Mandy’s reference librarian…
Oh, and I tagged you! :)
check this out… written a year ago by a conservative @ Master’s Seminary.
hope you find answers out there somewhere….
Oh what a tease!!! Can’t wait to see what you find out!! Keep us “posted”!
Your fellow nerd!
I can’t wait to see what you “dig up”! :D
LOL LOL!! Yes’em! I totally laughed out loud and LOVE the label :) It’s a keeper for sure.
I didn’t get to watch it (big bummer…). But my nerd curiosity is still on high, so I’ll see if I have a chance to dig into it.
I got stuck having a nerd night with Jesus – trying to dig through the life of Samson. And my mind is spread out all over the place with that man right now! Goodness gracious!
Left me in a Jesus tizzy!
In case anybody’s curious, The Lost Queen is rerunning on the Science Channel tonight at 9–not sure if that’s central or eastern though.
I watched and can’t wait to see what you find out. Not surprised that they NEVER mentioned the possibility of Hatshepsut finding Moses. Not that I heard anyway. But I just LOVED the way they finally ID’ed her. One tooth! That’s great!
Thanks for reminding me that it was on!
they replayed it last night (or rather at 1:00 a.m. this morning) and I stayed up and watched it.
Very interesting! I was looking forward to your “review”!!!
I was hoping to get to watch, but my husband insisted on watching the Hee Haw marathon on CMT….I think he only lasted for 2 episodes before he fell asleep. One can only stand so much fun!
Did anyone notice that the Israelites were not mentioned at all? From what I understand, Egypt denies that the Israelites were ever in Egypt and have erased that part of their history. I wasnt surprised, but I thought since the Discovery Channel is after the truth, it might be mentioned. Sigh..Let down by the all lying media system!
Hey Nerdy Girl,
I find this fascinating. Definitely keep us informed.
Luv, your fellow Nerd,
Rats! I missed it. I really need to learn how to use this DVR thingy.
Ahhh! I was GLUED to the tv course my drink of choice was Diet Pepsi! :0)
This was so exciting! How cool was that tooth and how bout those inards?? Coooool! Was like watching an episode of medical detectives! Love that show too :0)
Gotta scoot..Have a good one!
Can’t wait to see what you found out!!!
