Many people have read or at least heard the biblical story of Moses and the Ten Commandments.  What I find interesting is so many know about the 10 commandments but have never heard of the 42 Laws of Maat.  Maat was the Egyptian Goddess designed to avert chaos (Islet) and maintain truth (Maat) in ancient Kemet (Egypt).  In the biblical story, Moses was adopted into Egyptian royalty and was educated in ‘all the wisdom of the Egyptians’ according to Acts 7:22.

This means the biblical Moses would have been well aware of the 42 Laws of Maat.  The laws of Maat are dated as far back as 2925 B.C.E., meaning their existence predates the commandments received by Moses by 2000+ years!   I found it very interesting that the biblical 10 commandments can be somewhat found in the 42 Laws of Maat.  Could it be that Moses was inspired by ancient Egyptian teachings when he wrote the commandments?  I mean…it does say he was educated in all Egyptian ways.  Check out the 42 (Divine Principles) Laws of Maat below, do your research, and post your thoughts.
