I just stumbled across information about the Ipuwer papyrus, and I was wondering how many Jewish Egyptologists have had an opportunity to review and study it at length. Other than this very brief analysis by R' Mordechai Becher, and the article cited therein, are there any more recent, and more comprehensive, analyses of the document and its (possible) relationship to the Exodus?
