AKHENATEN: THE MYSTERIOUS REVELATION
Jesus J McGill
Genre: HIstorical Drama
Pharaoh Akhenaton, who lived in 13th century BC Egypt, was as mysterious as he is obscure. Bold, brass, and courageous, he was indeed a rebel with a cause.
As Pharaoh, he defiantly stood up against corruption in Egyptian government that had gone on before him. He became obsessed with replacing polytheism with the worship of one living God.
The priests of the kingdom, angered by the pharoah’s abandonment of their old ways and the lack of gold in their coffers, plotted against him, always searching for the opportunity to thwart the HERETIC KING that took away their power.
These priests, who would eventually be the Pharaoh’s demise, watched as Akhenaton and his wife, the great NEFERTITI, spent the riches of the Egyptian people to build AKHETATEN, THE CITY OF BRIGHTNESS. A new city, leaving behind the old gods of THEBES and worshipping the one true god in its place.
This obscure and forgotten Pharaoh made changes that played a paramount role in shaping the future of mankind. Now is the time to reveal them.
