Christadelphians are in no way concerned with the mythological History or Chronology of Egypt. They are satisfied with the verities of the Bible and Monumental facts, which may be epitomised as follows:
— Patriarch Abraham visits Egypt about B.C. *;
Joseph sold into Egypt and made Ruler, B.C.1720;
Rameses III. (Sesostris) reigns, B.C. 1600;
Exodus of the Israelites, B.C. 1626;
Egypt subject to Babylon, B.C. 580;
Egypt subject to Persia, B.C. 520;
Egypt subject to Greece, B.C. 332;
Egypt subject to Rome, A.D. 30;
Egypt invaded by Saracens, A.D. 638;
Egypt invaded by the Turks, A.D. 1163;
Egypt occupied by British, A.D. 1882.

* In reference to this and other Egyptian dates, Brother Young picturesquely speaks of such as “thorny”. In fact, all who have dogmatised on dates prior to the 18th century B.C. have had their dates recoil on them. I heartily agree with Brother C. C. Walker in emphasising the qualification of “about”, as found in Acts xiii. 20.
