THE COHEN LINE OF J1: Our 400 Years in Egypt Producing Moses

Terah, whose father was Nahor I, going back to Serug, Reu, Peleg,
Eber, Shelah, Arpachshad, Shem and Noah whose wife was Naamah  His Y haplogroup line (male line)
of J1 or J-P209 goes back as far as 4,000 years to 24,000 years before the present time.-today called

Because the Semite Terah and his wife joined their mass movement West of Ivrim  (Hebrew for Hebrews) from the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers due to fighting, we find our ancestor Terah settling in Ur, a city now in today's Syria,  among other people who had sparsely settled there previously.  Terah was an idol maker, and his son Abram, born in Ur of the Chaldees, finally questioned the validity of such a belief and through G-d, came to disregard it and needed to move to a less populated environment.  Abram had done some heavy thinking while living among the Philistines and Canaanites and had concluded that there was only one G-d controlling the world; not zillions all being stood in for by clay figures.   He was aghast that some of the people had even been sacrificing their sons to gain these gods' good blessings.  Then again, even he had been asked by his G-d to do this and thankfully was told by Him that he was never to do this, an experience that changed his thinking even more so.   Abram took Terah and Sarai  and left town.  Abram had married his niece, Sarai, daughter of his Uncle Haran, and they named their child who came late in life, Isaac.  In turn, Isaac married Rebecca, his 1st cousin once removed,  daughter of his Uncle Nahor II, and their son was Jacob.  (Jacob's story continues under Egypt's story.)  He and Sarai also went through a revelation where their names were changed to Abraham and Sarah.  It shows there had been a change in these people, a growth.                                                                                          
By now the weather had changed and they were experiencing a drought so bad that they had to pack up their tents and migrate onto Egypt, that mighty land further to the south.  Their family group numbered 70 people who packed up and started their trip having a limited supply of food with them.                                                                
Joseph was already there, taken as a child and had become leader under the pharaoh.
As his father and brothers finally had joined him in Egypt, he received grazing land in Goshen for them.  History shows he lived at the time of the Hyksos domination of Egypt during the 18th to 16th centuries BCE.  He would have been a foreigner in the position of viceroy by the pharaoh.  

They entered Egypt and set up their tents and took care of their sheep in flocks that had dwindled in size because of such dry conditions on the way.  All was fine for a very long time, probably a span of 100 years in which the women, who were very fertile and wise in the ways of child bearing, produced many children.  At last the Egyptians became alarmed that a band of 70 had become a people of thousands.  

They were taken as prisoners to spend the rest of the 400 year span in Egypt as slaves, building the storage cities of Egypt.  
Mentuhotep II
2008-1957 BCE/1995 BCE

Ahmose I
At the time of the Ivrim entering Ur, "Egypt was going through its Middle Kingdom period that lasted from 2030 BCE to 1640 BCE.  During this period, "Upper and Lower Egypt were reunited by Theban king Nebhepetre Mentuhotep II who establishes the capital at Thebes, then Itj-tawy. 
Egypt was briefly ruled by competing dynasties from western Asia and its environs.  Reunification occured again under  Ahmose I and a time of economic and artistic prosperity ensued. 
Hatshepsut, the most powerful female ruler of pharaonic history, built her unique funerary temple in western Thebes.    
Ramesses II (son of Seti-1304 BCE
Fighter against the Hittites
Movie has him being adopted brother
of Moses
Ramesses III-(1187 to 1156 BCE)

After the reign of Ramesses III, Egypt’s power gradually declined, leading to the 

Jacob in turn married Leah and then her sister, Rachel, who was his true love. They lived in Haran in Aram-Naharaim.   They were his 1st cousins, being  the daughters of Laban, son of Bethuel who was the son of Nahor II.  His sons from these unions were by Leah:  Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar and Zebulun and the daughter, Dinah.  Rachel bore him:  Joseph and Benjamin and died near Bethlehem giving birth to Benjamin.  In turn, he also took for concubines their handmaidens.  Bilhah, belonging to Rachel,  was the mother of Dan and Naphtali and Zilpah, belonging to Leah,  gave him  Gad and Asher. Altogether Jacob had 12 sons who were the ancestors of the 12 tribes of Israel.   (Gen. 30-9-13).  Jacob then decided to return home after a 20 year absence with his large family and that he had an epitome or revelation when his name was changed to Israel.  He had had  the experience of a struggle with an angel who overcame him and gave him this name.  Jacob had a twin brother, Esau, who was estranged from him and it was in his mind to make up to him as he felt he had wronged him.  His intention was to be the bearer of many gifts and hope he would be in his good graces once again.  Esau became one of the Arabs who existed when Abram had had a son by Sarai's handmaiden,  Hagar the Egyptian princess who was Ishmael.  He also had left his father's camp to join the other natives living there, going against his father's wishes.  Ishmael is looked upon as being the father of the Arab people.  Actually, both Isaac and Ishmael carry their father's genes and Y haplogroup of J1c3d. They now have mutated enough to see the differences in the 2 lines.  
Moses bringing down the 2nd set of stone tablets of the 10 COMMANDMENTS;
son of Amram, Kohath, Levi and wife Milkah.  Levi was his ggrandfather.  
Moses, son of  Amram  and Jochebed, was born in 1391 BCE  in Egypt at a time when the Pharaoh was so worried about being replaced by force that he had all Jewish babies killed under 2 years of age.                                         
Thutmose IV (1401-1391 BCE)
The Lion of Chaeronea could be the culprit ordering the drowning of boy babies.
 His mother, Jochebed, placed him in a reed basket in the Nile where he was found by the Egyptian princess, and raised as her son, not knowing he was a very lucky Jewish baby.  Being raised as royalty, he was well educated and schooled in reading and writing of many languages.  After feeling remorse while witnessing the beating of an Ivrit slave, he hit the overseer of the slaves and killed him, which was against the law even for him, so he fled out of town and meandered eastward to Midian where he met up with a group of women belonging to a local sheik, Jethro, who became his father-in-law when he married his daughter, Zipporah..  Jethro was a religious man, being a priest, too.  Zipporah had 2 sons; Gershom and Eliezer who died before they had children.  Aaron, older brother of Moses, was able to have many sons.  
Canaanites they encountered on their journey of the Exodus
Moses leading the way on the Exodus
At age 80, Moses left Midian and went back to Egypt to haggle with the pharaoh and then  lead the Ivrim out of Egypt.  The 12 tribes had grown so that he was leading a group of  601,730 people according to Moses' 2nd census, down from the first of 603,550 by 1,820 and had to take them back to Canaan, a distance of about as a crow flies, 423 km or 263 miles. The largest tribe was Judah.                                     
Dividing the Red Sea for the Children of Israel (Jacob)
It took him 40 years to fight through lands and get there.  The adults had died off and he came to Canaan with a new generation who were losing their slave-minds.  Joshua was the young leader who replaced Moses now.                                                                          
Moses died in 1271 BCE just outside of Canaan being he was not able to enter.  He was 120 years old.  His gravesite is not known on purpose so that no one would treat him like a g-d.  This man had been the receiver of information from G-d, through a burning bush and other ways.  It was he who wrote the 1st book of the Torah, called 5 Books of Moses that consists of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.  This is our history.  
Here is the typical Cohen haplogroup

Here is a panel of 12 alleles  of a haplogroup for males, the Y; of a typical Jewish Cohen of J-M267. who is also a Cohen in the synagogue.  
12--13--11--30 on DYS 389II
9/2216 Update:  /2:34pm "To confirm J haplogroup type, deep SNP tests must be used. For J1, M267 SNP must be positive. Many other SNP are being discovered as research progresses which links smaller groups together (tribes and clans) such as the Big Y test by FTDNA which will draw the YDNA tree of this unique haplogroup.

It seems that about half of today's Arabs bear this haplogroup. FTDNA.   It is true also for the Jews.  There are other haplogroups that are part of the Jewish people, and one must remember that slaves other than the Abramite family had joined Moses on the Exodus and became part of the Ivrit people as told in the Torah.  All left when given the chance. Other common haplotypes for Jews are E, G, I, R,  and Q.
