It was intended to include a list of the Pharaohs mentioned in Genesis and Exodus, and an elaborate table had been drawn up.  But, as the data are still incomplete, and scholars and explorers are not fully agreed, it is felt to be wiser to postpone a subject which is still a subject of controversy.

The title "Pharaoh," being an appellative, leaves the dynasties and individuals referred to open to question and doubt.

Of only one thing we are assured; that, when all the real facts have been discovered, they will be confirmed and attested by "the scriptures of truth."

[Note (1925). Inscriptions recently found by an American archaeological explorer at Bethshan (now Beisan) show that it was one time under Egyptian rule. One of these inscriptions confirms the view that the Bondage of Israel occurred under Rameses II, whose son, Meneptah, would be the Pharaoh of the Exodus.]
