Is the Israelite's Exodus from Egypt a true story or is it a myth? Filmmaker Timothy Mahoney strives to answer that question while examining archaeological and historical evidence in his new documentary "Patterns of Evidence: Exodus".
This documentary took Timothy Mahoney 12 years to make and involved his traveling from Israel to Egypt to the Netherlands. "Patterns of Evidence: Exodus" examines Biblical texts and archaeological artifacts and contains interviews with leading experts -- both those who are for and against the authenticity of the Bible's Exodus.
It was interesting to see the historical timeline presented visually in this documentary. "Patterns of Evidence: Exodus" considers that the artifacts that prove the Biblical account to be true may be "missing" because people have been looking for the Exodus at the wrong time in history. Shifting the timeline back 250 - 400 years means that events in the Bible, including the Exodus, begin to line up with archaeological and historical evidence.
Is it enough to consider the Exodus to be a moral fable or does it matter to you if the Exodus story is true? "Patterns of Evidence: Exodus" is a great documentary for those that question the validity of the Scriptures and for those who want to critically think about what they believe.
My husband, 9 year old and 11 year old were intrigued by this documentary (though admittedly my kids only watched the first half hour). I trust that you and your family will enjoy it and be challenged by it too.
