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. 

 

My mom and I watched this DVD together, and found it fascinating! Mr. Mahoney and his team did a wonderful job on the making of this film, and the information and video footage are very interesting.

Although I did not agree with the main reason Mr. Mahoney began his project to discover evidence for the Exodus of the Children of Israel out of Egypt, I still really enjoyed the film! Mr. Mahoney was questioning his faith in the Bible because there seemed to be no evidence of the Exodus. He basically states that if he couldn't find physical evidence, he wasn't sure he could continue to believe. Hebrews 11:6 tells us that Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Our faith in God's Word can't come just through evidence. The Bible is the inerrant Word of God, and we can trust it completely whether or not we can find physical evidence that agrees with it.

Our Heavenly Father is so gracious to us though, and many, many times chooses to strengthen our faith by allowing us to find amazing evidence of the very things He has already told us of in His Word! It was exciting to see some of these things unfolding in Patterns of Evidence Exodus, and now we are eagerly awaiting the next DVD they are working on which will be about the crossing of the Red Sea!
