INTRODUCTION
   This Xeroxed volume represents the first crude attempt to put the history of earliest ancient times based on the bible into story form. The main sources for this material are the bible and the two-volume 'Compendium of World History - Volume 1' and 'Compendium of World History - Volume 2'.
   The reader is cautioned that the incomplete account presented here should not by any means be regarded as the final and authoritative word on the subject. It must be emphasized that this is merely an initial attempt at telling the actual story of what went on in the distant past. Much research remains to be done.
   However, what has been gathered into these pages will help provide a general, overall concept as to what was really taking place in the centuries before and after the flood. Certainly a more accurate concept than modern-day histories provide.
   Our tentative plan is to present the story from the creation to the Exodus in the form of four parts or units broken down into twenty-eight chapters. As this is being written, some six chapters are yet to be completed. The gaps have been partially filled in with outlines. Only seven copies of this incomplete version are being Xeroxed at this time for limited library use.
   Dr. Hoeh has stated, "the time is coming when all history books will be rewritten." Although this monumental task will not be completed till the world tomorrow is here, the work has already begun in earnest.

Introduction

   The four centuries following the Flood were some of the most crucial if not the most crucial in all human history! These centuries witnessed a tremendous struggle for control of humanity!
   The story of, these vital years is covered only in the briefest manner in the Scriptures, yet God wants us to know what was happening! When the major events of these crucial decades are made plain, the Bible account takes on new meaning!
   This most crucial period in the story of human experience is neglected in most histories. Historians, in private, consider it a very controversial era still requiring much research. Yes, There was not only an all-important "lost century" in the history of the early true Church of God there was also a vital period of some "four lost centuries" after the Flood!
   When the influential occurrences of this period are made known, the world will understand to a immeasurable greater extent where its problems originated!
   This time in early post-Flood history revolves around the lives of seven key individuals Noah, Shem, Cush, Nimrod, Semiramis, Asshur, and Horus (or Gilgamesh), These influential personalities carried on their wide-ranging activities of government and conquest as the tiny human race was just beginning to grow in numbers. Their leadership shaped the future course of the small but expanding world population.
   The impact of these individuals and their prominent contemporaries upon human history has never been fully realized until now the time of the end!

Introduction
The astounding evidence of history proves that Abraham actually had AN IMPACT FELT BY THE ENTIRE ANCIENT WORLD!
   The account you are about to read will show that Abraham was the first key figure in the history of Austria, that he greatly influenced ancient EGYPT and that under God's guidance, he completely changed the course of ASSYRIAN history!! This is the story behind the story of Genesis eleven, twelve, thirteen and fourteen!
   Modern historians, by rejecting the Bible, have thrown away one of the most fascinating historical dramas of all time and have robbed students at all ages of the truth about mankind's past. Modernist scholars regard Abraham as "a mythological hero." Dr. William F. Albright, dean of American archaeologists on the other hand, promotes the theory that Abraham was a donkey caravaneer who plodded back and forth between Egypt and Canaan! In short, the picture we are asked to accept is that, if Abraham existed at all, he was backward, ignorant, and primitive.
   For 4000 years the world has sought to hide the astounding fact that Abraham was an influential ruler and leader. He was a man of great wealth, and a skilled scientist, astronomer, and mathematician a well-known figure who had a great impact on the society of his day. When God called Abraham he was not calling someone from the "back woods" or "slums." God called a man of great personality, capability, and potential to carry out His purpose.
   It is time the history errors were rewritten. It is time for the true picture to be presented.

MAIN SOURCES FOR REMAINDER OF PART FOUR NOT YET WRITTEN

Introduction
   Old Testament Israel had more contact with Egypt than any other ancient nation. Consequently it should be possible, with the many clues the Bible provides, to solidly harmonize their two histories.
   In Part Three we have already seen the impact Abraham had on Egypt in early patriarchal times. We have also seen how Shem remarkably changed Egypt's history and governmental structure. But Joseph also went to Egypt and his father and brothers! Job was there also! And when Moses left the second time at the Exodus the land of the Nile was left in an absolute shambles!
   All of these stories are plainly recorded in the Bible. But how are these personalities and events reflected in the Egyptians' own history? If Joseph was second in command over the whole nation, would not his name appear in some dynasty? And who was the Pharaoh who appointed him to his high position? The Bible does not name him does Egyptian history?
   When did Israel and his children come to Egypt? Can we provide exact dates for the seven years' famine? Just how long did Joseph rule? Where does Job fit into the picture? Just exactly what territory was included in "the land of Rameses?" And who was this Rameses in the first place?
   The Apostle Paul recorded that Moses was withstood by Jannes and Jambres. Who were these men? Who was the Pharaoh who enslaved the Israelites? Can we prove the date of Exodus? What was the name of the Pharaoh who drowned in the Red Sea? Who invaded Egypt after God brought upon that nation its greatest catastrophe?
   Modern history books do not provide the answers to these vital questions. They either ignore them or confuse the issue. But the real story behind the story of these events is now becoming clear as the following pages will demonstrate!
