Raised in the household of Pharaoh, Moses’ Egyptian name was Sobekmose. He rose to become not merely a son to Pharaoh, but a general of his army, despite having a stuttering problem. When his earthly fathers fail him, Moses becomes a broken man, a wandering nomad. When his heavenly father chooses him, can Moses overcome his weaknesses and fears to become the father of a nation?


Jochabed and Meryt

The mothers of Moses. Jochabed, a humble understated Hebrew woman whose single heroic act of hiding her son in an “ark,” would become the lynchpin for the salvation of Israel. And Meryt, his Egyptian mother, would raise Moses as Sobekmose and face a similar sacrifice of giving up her son for his higher purpose. But will she find the God of her son’s people?


Aaron and Miriam

Pharaoh Sobekhotep

Khaneferre Sobekhotep IV wants to unite Upper and Lower Egypt and become the greatest king who ever ruled Egypt, like Horus his patron deity. The only problem is that his adopted son to inherit, Sobekmose (Moses) is outshinining his glory with his own great achievements for the king.

Jannes and Jambres

The Midianite wife of Moses. She meets Moses wandering in the land of Midian, takes him to meet her father and ultimately becomes the strong and supportive wife of the man who would birth a nation. This is a picture of her on her wedding day.


Pharaoh Dudimose

At this point, his name is Hoshea, until Moses renames him. Young warrior with a hunger for fighting Yahweh’s enemies. Moses tells him Yahweh will defend Israel. But can Joshua suppress his fighting instinct as he watches the armies of Egypt descend upon God’s people in the wilderness?


Caleb ben Jephunneh

The Archangels


Though all seven archangels from Yahweh’s throne have been involved in previous Chronicles of the Nephilim, they must all bond together more than ever to defeat the gods of Egypt. And it won’t be easy.

Apophis / Leviathan
