Does archeologist evidence support the famous Exodus in the Bible? That is exactly what Timothy Mahoney - filmmaker- sets out to uncover. How? By visiting the famous locations in Egypt and talking to scholars and archeologist Mahoney tries to uncover the truth.
About Patterns of Evidence Exodus:
For more than 50 years, the vast majority of the world's most prominent archaeologists and historians have proclaimed that there is no hard evidence to support the Exodus story found in the Bible. In fact, they say that the archaeological record is completely opposed to the Bible's account. This view of extreme skepticism has spread from academia to the world. The case against the Exodus appears to be so strong that even some religious leaders are labeling this ancient account as historical fiction. Filmmaker Timothy Mahoney begins with the questions, "Is the Bible just a myth, or did the archaeologists get it wrong?" He decides to tackle this issue wit a deliberate scientific approach. After examining the details in the biblical text, he journeys across the globe to search for patterns of evidence firsthand. The result is the most in-depth archaeological investigation into the Exodus from Egypt ever captured on film. This scientific documentary's goal is to communicate the TRUTH of the Bible and help equip believers with defending their faith and the Bible.
The DVD features stunning animations and a cast including narrator, Kevin Sorbo (God's Not Dead, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys), interviews with leading archaeologists including Israel Finkelstein, Kent Weeks, and David Rohl, and guest appearances by Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu and Shimon Peres.
This was a fascinating DVD. While we believe the bible to be the truth and an actual historical account, many don't. I liked how this was approached and how the evidence was laid out. Sometimes documentaries can be dry but this one was well done with narrations, interviews and scenes from the bible (acted out.) This is a great addition to our DVD library and perfect for our studies in Ancient History this year.
