We read about the Jews in the bible.The Jews are all descended from a man called Abraham and his wife Sarah, through their son Isaac. (Read Genesis Chapter 23, verses 15 to 18)The Jews grew to be a great nation of many people. When there was a famine they went to Egypt (Read Genesis chapter 46 , verses 5 to 7. They were there for about 400 years.But the Egyptians hated them, and they were treated as slaves. After many terrible plagues and disasters the Egyptians let all their Jewish slaves go, and over 2 million Jewish people went back to the land of Israel. The gold they melted down came from the gifts that the Egyptians piled onto them as they were leaving Egypt.(Read Exodus chapter 12, verses 35 and 36) Actually, all this gold was no more than payment for all the years they had worked as slaves for no money- they were not money-changers or anything like that.

What year did the Jew leave Egypt?

The Jews believed there was only one God.  This was one reason the Egyptians scorned them.  They scorned the Egyptians for having a childish and superstitious religion. The various gods had jealousies, fought with each other for succession, etc. To the Jews, this was a miscarriage of conceptual comprehension of God.

The pharaoh Amenhotep or Akhenaten (he changed his name when he changed The religion to be one god only- the Sun God Aten)may have responded to the Jews if the timing is right. I want to know what years the Jews were in Egypt.  Also, Zecharia Sitchin believes the pantheon of Greece is the same as the twelve gods of Egypt and originally of Sumer, and that these gods were ones who copulated with man, Sitchin thinks there is another explanation about this pantheon's origin.  May have impressed mankind incredibly, but not actually been God, though they seemed to have powers.  May have affected the development of western civilization, thought to be god, but were actually not at all the moral nature of what we think of as God, now in the judeo-Christian or Buddhist or even Chinese Taoist sense, where there is a unity, a principle, a One.

I agree with Joan for the most part but take exception to the assumption of hatred.  It seems more reasonable that the Jews tried to make themselves useful to the Egyptians and became merchants and service providers in exchange for sustenance.  Hatred would result in deaths and not utilization.  Over time I suspect debts were incurred and luckily for the Jews credit offered by the Egyptians.  Debt not being paid then turned into a work to pay debt situation which some may term improperly as slavery.  This debt growing so rampant that I suspect the Egyptian royalty decided a good humane way of rectifying the debt of their charges was to enlist Jewish labor for an ambitious project and build the giant pyramids which I think were built exactly during that time.  When the project was complete the Egyptians no longer required the Jews.  As the project neared completion there would have naturally been some unrest and a call for exodus.  In comes Moses.  This chain of events makes sense to me where as the one in the Bible seems to misrepresent facts and is more valuable as a testament of faith or some sort of statement of Jewish worthiness...
