Legendary founder of the Jewish religion and author of the
first five books of the Bible (The Torah) (Thothmoses II -
prince and high-priest of Egypt) Moses "simply means 'born
of' in Egyptian, his native language.. The name normally
requires another name prefixed to it, such as Rameses
(born of Ra) or Amenmosis (born of Amen) It seems very

Senmut/Tutmoses II (Moses) is groomed to become pharaoh. He
is the architect of Deir El Bahri, the mortuary temple of
Hatshepsut. Another name for Moses: Hatshepsut Xnem Amen -
(offspring of Hatshepsut by the god Amen). Suggesting that
the true father of Moses was unknown.
The last that we hear of Senenmut (Moses) is in year 16 of
Hatshepsut's reign.. He would have been about 38 at this
time.This is when he went into exile.
About this time another son of Hatshepsut named Thothmosis
competed with Moses for the position of Pharoah. Apparently
Moses was exiled at this time.
