One of the Roma Eterna stories, the first one written.

4000 years after the failed Exodus, the few remaining Hebrews in Egypt plan a new Exodus, to space, and recruit a historian to write their tale. The historian, Nathan ben-Simeon, though Jewish by heritage, is by no means a religious man, so when Moshe, leader of the Exodus project, contacts him, skepticism is the main result.
