Abram’s journey from Canaan to Egypt in Genesis 12
Ancient Egyptian tomb painting, dated close to time of Abraham (1900 BC), shows people from Canaan coming into Egypt just as we read Abraham and his family did in Genesis 12. This is the best and closest glimpse of what the people looked like in that era and area
Dating to around 1900 BC, this tomb painting, with words and pictures on it, shows how Old Testament people from the time of Abraham and Sarah looked, how they dressed, their hair styles, and even a musical instrument of the day (lyre).
