Amenhotep IV (Amenophis
IV in Greek) was born to his father, Amenhotep III, and his mother, the powerful Queen Tiye, during a highpoint of the 18th Dynasty.
It was Amenophis

One of the accounts we have of this pharaoh is given by Joseph Flavius in his book entitled Against Apion, he observes that Amenophis
(Akhenaton) who wanted to be able to 'see the Gods', rebelled against the religion of his ancestors, and that a group of leprous Egyptians, assisted by the shepherds (Hyksos) from Jerusalem fought against the army of Egypt, but were defeated.
There is the earlier monotheism of Pharaoh Amenophis
IV, who took the name of Akhenaton, and launched an exclusive cult of the solar disk, several centuries before the commonly accepted date of Moses.
(3) A nature-hymn (Psalm 104) engages with the hymn to Sun god (Ra') written by Akhnathen (Amenophis
IV), and some biblical wisdom literature (e.g., Proverbs 22:17-24:35) is related to the teaching of Amen-em-apt.
