Egypt pharaohs & the Bible


How many pharaohs did ancient Egypt have altogether and which of them are mentioned in the Bible?

The only pharaoh's the seem to be a solid case is Necho II &
maybe Taharqa. The other pharaohs mention in the bible are
just called 'pharaoh' and no names.

Yep. There are many historical figures mentioned in the Bible, but strangely the name of the pharaoh was not. . .

Just for fun try to work out the name of the pharoah of Exodus. He isn't actually named either. Opinions about his name vary wildly,covering about 200 years.

Viewing the Torah as history, one could reasonably expect such an important figure to be named. View it as myth (which I do) and it makes complete sense.

Makes sense. If someone were introducing the President, they might say, "The President will see you now." Instead of, "Obama is ready".

If they were having diplomatic correspondence, perhaps by the time one Pharaoh died another one was already in the throne by the time the next message went out?

The Pharaoh of the Exodus is in fact three Pharaoh's: one for Joseph, one for the oppression, and one for the exodus. Popular culture usually depicts Ramesses II as the Pharaoh of the exodus, but there is no proof. An Egyptian writer called Ahmed Osman surmised that the Pharaoh of the oppression was Horemheb.

I doubt the Hebrew were ever slaves in Egypt. Its unlikely Jews even existed prior to roughly 1400 BCE.
