Who Built The Great Pyramid?
The identity of the architect is unknown, but three candidates come to the top of most lists:
Eusibius quotes an Egyptian historian named Manetheo who attributes construction to the Hyksos or Shepherd Kings who came from Arabia, conquered Egypt
without a battle, destroyed their pagan temples and converted Egypt to monotheism. They built the Great Pyramid and then left for Judea. Job, after
whom a book of the Bible is named, might have been part of this group. A generation later the Egyptians reverted to paganism.
Some say Enoch, making the Pyramid a pre-flood monument like the nearby Sphinx. If you measure a side from corner to corner in sacred cubits it equals
365.242, the number of days in our year and Enoch’s age when he was raptured. (Because of their concave nature there are three ways to measure a
side. One way equals the solar year, as above. The second way equals the sidereal year, slightly longer at 365.256, and the third equals the
anomalistic year of 365.259 days. The last two are used mostly in astronomy. If that isn’t astonishing enough for you, keep in mind that none of
these measurements would apply until 1300 years later when the length of the Earth’s orbit increased by 5.25 days.)
Most popular is Shem, son of Noah. Shem outlived 8 of the first 9 generations following the Great Flood, and even outlived Abraham. Some believe Shem
was the priest called Melchizedek in Genesis 14. Read for more information.
No matter which of these options appeals to you, the facts remain that the builder knew all the dimensions of Earth and had a command of engineering,
astronomy, and mathematics that would be impressive even today.
