In Patterns of Evidence Exodus, Timothy Mahoney travels to Egypt in searching of discovering the hidden truth about if Exodus truly existed. Many archaeologists, scientists, and a few religious scholars have their doubts and they can’t find solid evidence that the Israelites tribe even existed. Many people are also debating about when the Israelites could have lived. This films shows many different sides to the debates and why they believe what they believe. The film also covered the places where Joseph, Moses, and Joshua could have lived and what these important places could teach us.
I would recommend this eye-opening film to anyone who enjoys documentaries and they are seeking a Biblical based film. I especially liked how Timothy Mahoney was determined in finding out the truth and he showed both side of the debates of Exodus. One of the things I found interesting was when he was exploring the birth of Moses. Pharaoh commanded that all the Hebrew boys to be killed. In scripture, we know that Moses mother put him into a basket on the Nile river in hopes he would be spared. Pharaoh daughter finds Moses and he is raised as one of Pharaoh. Timothy found out that archaeologists discovered there was a significate number of newborn children buried in their graves and there was also a higher rate of death mortally than normal. They also found that the females who died in adulthood was 60% compared to 40% male. I liked how he shared the area and likelihood of a tomb that could be Joseph. I also loved how he explored the fallen walls of Jericho. I really appreciated how he took the amount of time to explain the different locations and interviewed good quality people. The insights of this movie is very remarkable and it left me with the feeling that they are on to something. If you’re looking for an excellent film, then watch this one!
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 with 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.
