I love Bible documentaries. Especially the ones where we get to travel back to ancient lands and see the proof of God's word and where His Story began.
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.
In Patterns of Exodus, a 119 minute long DVD, 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.
I watched this video with my husband and daughter. Since Timothy was rather scientific in historical details my 10 year old soon lost interest as my husband and I leaned in for more.
Timothy went on a long journey and uncovered some facts and data that really seem to point to the actual Exodus and evidence of Joseph in Egypt.
I have no doubt that Bible stories are true. I've had enough miracles in my own life to know God can and does work miracles. Especially for His chosen people.
I had actually never heard that scholars and Christians were disbelieving Biblical events, Exodus in particular. But I'm not surprised though. We know we are in the last days and the Bible tells us many will fall away from the truth. The writing is on the wall.
It is so hard for man to have faith and believe something he cannot calculate and analyze although plenty enough calculation and analytical data was happening in this video.
Will this turn a skeptic into a believer? I don't know. I think only God can touch the unbelieving but willing heart (only He knows). I know I love having this DVD in my library collection and will be loaning it out. And if you would like a copy too I'm giving one away.
