The 10 commandments maybe Egyptian Hieroglyphs because Moses and his followers came from Egypt.

For whom? Egyptians did not teach their slaves to read the hieroglyphs.

The story is meant to symbolize that the priestly laws were handed to us directly from god rather than an oral transmission as the old stories were passed on. Now the law were, as they say, graven in stone, and people 5000 years would still be able to read the commandments exactly as god intended them rather than some doubtlessly faulty oral record passed down through dozens and dozens of generations. The language they were written is was not a matter of concern to the priests--only waht receiving in writing from the lord would signify. It was meant to elevate the status of priests as guardians of a sacred, unalterable word rather than keepers of some ever-changing oral tradition.

As a literal event, the story is pointless; as a symbolic event, the story elevates the importance of the priesthood.

It's really disturbing how people think that these symbolic stories actually happened. Like, Adam and Eve? Huh? embarassedlaugh.gif

You mean Moses didn't spite the first born sons of all the Egyptian households with micropenis?

but historically speaking. if hebrews at that time were to write something in stone tablets, they would either use a) cuniform or b) heiroglyphs c) other unknown script.

to the egyptians the hebrews were foreigners from further east who didnt want to adopt egyptians customs, but to the mesopotamians the hebrews were rejects thrown out of mesopotamia. so they snaked their way through history using bastardized fairy tales. keeping hidden knowledge of the pharoes's and lugals to themselves.

Moses a Hebrew was a Prince of Egypt because he was adopted by a the Princess of Egypt since he was a baby and she raised Moses like how a Prince of Egypt should be treated. For sure Moses knows Egyptian culture and literature and for sure he knew Egyptian hieroglyphs. If the Ten Commandments was not written in Egyptian hieroglyphs, it may be Phoenician the earliest Hebrew language.

Phoenician and Hebrew are two different languages, but they both belong to the Canaanite branch of the Semitic languages.
