    Sargon của Akkad, cũng gọi là Sargon Đại đế "Đức Vua vĩ đại" (tiếng Akkad: Šarru-kinu, nghĩa là "Đức Vua anh minh" hay "Đức Vua chân chính"), là một vị Hoàng đế Akkad cổ đại, trở nên nổi tiếng với việc ông chinh phục các thành bang vùng Sumer trong các thế kỷ thứ 23 và 22 trước Công nguyên.

Sargon II (Neo-Assyrian cuneiform: Šarru-kīn, probably meaning "the faithful king" or "the legitimate king") was the king of the Neo-Assyrian Empire from the downfall of his predecessor Shalmaneser V in BC to his death in battle in BC. Though Sargon claimed to be the son of the previous king Tiglath-Pileser III (r. – BC), this is uncertain and he probably gained the throne.

      Akkadian poem about Sargon the Great has a lot of similarities to the baby Moses story. Sargon’s legend ends with a prayer that his successor would travel, conquer, and rule just as he had done.4 If the Sargon legend contains any historical truth, it certainly leaves a great deal of room for scholarly debate. Clearly, there is an obvious similarity between Sargon’s birth legend and the biblical story of Moses in Exodus

The text claims that Sargon's mother abandoned him on a river in a basket waterproofed with bitumen, he was This is an arcane book, probably not relevant for most people, or even on their radar.4/5.

My mother was lowly; my father I did not know; 3. The brother of my father dwelt in the mountain. My city is Azupiranu, which is situated on the bank of the Purattu [Euphrates], 5.

My lowly mother conceived me, in secret she brought me forth. According to the cuneiform inscription known as The Legend of Sargon (his autobiography), he was born the illegitimate son of a "changeling", which could refer to a temple priestess of the goddess Inanna (whose clergy were androgynous) and never knew his : Joshua J.

Mark. The Mesopotamian work known as the Sargon Birth Legend offers the most striking parallels to the biblical story. It relates the birth story of Sargon the Great, an Akkadian emperor who ruled a number of Sumerian city-states around bc, centuries before the time of Moses.

Legend has it that Sargon was placed in a reed basket and sent down the river by his mother. He was rescued by Aqqi, who then adopted him as his own son.

That sounds a lot like the story of Moses in Exodus 2. And Sargon lived about years before Moses was born. Set in a dark, futuristic Los Angeles, the western United States has become home to the warring Republic.

A young government prodigy, June, and the infamous, most-wanted criminal, Day, cross paths in this thrilling, romantic young adult series from the bestselling author Marie Lu.

Some scholars believe it contains a ritual called "The Anointing" that grant god-like powers. Overview Edit. Cappadocius, among the greatest mages of his time, wrote down all his knowledge before his Embrace, some to years ago.

The Sumerian-language Sargon legend contains a legendary account of Sargon's rise to power. It is an older version of the previously-known Assyrian legend, discovered in in Nippur and first edited in The extant versions are incomplete, but the surviving fragments name Sargon's father as Dynasty: Akkadian (Sargonic).

The mother in the Sargon story is not a poor foreigner, but a member of the aristocracy. With Sargon, the father is unknown (ie illegitimate) whereas Moses was a legitimate birth.

The parallels of detail are weak here at best. And then there is the hiding of the baby in a pitch-covered basket. One day, after the evening had arrived and Sargon had brought the regular deliveries to the palace, Ur- Zababa was sleeping (and dreaming) in the holy bed-chamber, his holy residence.

He realized what the dream was about, but did not put into words, did not discuss it with anyone.

Prittie. (The Commons) This is what Sargon wrote in his autobiography about the experience: “Sargon, the mighty king, king of Agade, am I. This possibility diminishes the case for the Sargon legend influencing Exodus because if we allow that J or E (usually dated to the 10C and 8C respective) is the source behind Exodusand follow the traditional dating for these sources, both would predate the reign of Sargon II (),” J.
