Today the 22nd episode of the 3rd chapter was published on Blubrry and is also available on iTunes. In this episode, I wrap up the Egyptian 2nd Dynasty, work all the way through the 3rd, and begin the 4th Dynasty. And, it’s the 4th Dynasty that marks the beginning of the Old Kingdom. Why does this matter? It was during the 4th Dynasty, so also the Old Kingdom, that many of the monuments that still exist were built. Like the Pyramids. The same structures that Abraham, Isaac, Josephs and his brothers, Aaron, and of course Moses, all stared upon. The same ones you can visit today. Next week, I’ll continue working through the Old Kingdom. After listening, let me know what you think.
