Hebrews we're an Israelite slave in Egypt at the time when Moses was born Hebrews started to expand so large that the Egyptians started getting terrified and saying what if the Hebrews outgrow us? If they outgrow us that means the Hebrew will out number the Egyptians so therefore if the Hebrews wanted to take over they will be able to because they outnumber the Egyptians. Pharaoh came up with this idea If he killed all Hebrew baby boys at birth he wouldn’t have to worry about that problem so Pharaoh ordered that all Hebrew baby boys are to be put to death at birth.
The Impact of Ancient Egypt Ancient Egypt is a civilization of wealth and structure that flourished along the Nile River in northeastern Africa from about 3300 B.C to 30 B.C. In over 3,000 years, one of the most sophisticated and creative societies advanced where no other civilization did. 2,000 years later, it would be hard to think about the world without the impact of ancient Egypt, because it seems to have significantly affected every field of our American culture. The Egyptians have heavily influenced our culture’s literature, architecture, art, film, and politics.

Ancient Egyptians may have lived thousands of years ago, but their impact to today's society is evident in their contributions to the modern world. This amazing civilization was born on the Nile River which allowed them the ability to become a huge agricultural and trading center.

It's amazing that the government and the social structure of this ancient civilization would exist thousands of years and with many enemies. From them, the world can learn how to govern and maintain a tight and organized society that supports its people. Inheriting the power from their families allows the Egyptians great control. Besides their religious and social strength, Egyptians had many inventions that we use today. To
Joseph began his life as the favorite son of Jacob who tended to the flocks as a shepherd.3 These humble beginnings foreshadow how one day Joseph will tend to the Seed of the Woman during times of famine in the land by giving food to this eleven brothers.

Joseph was a high official, who was appointed by the pharaoh in Genesis 41: 39- 41 which says: 39 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Inasmuch as God has shown you all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you. 40 You shall be over my house, and all my people shall be ruled according to your word; only in regard to the throne will I be greater than you.” 41 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.” These high officials had jobs like handing out enough food for people just like in Genesis 41: 55-56, when the famine in the land began the pharaoh put Joseph in charge of the storehouse, which was full of grain

To start off, I believe Joseph lived at the late Middle Kingdom because at this time Egypt and its Pharaoh´s were strong just as, when Joseph was alive.
