Have you ever wondered what is the validity of history found in the Bible? Is it fact or fiction? What does the hard evidence really have to say about the foundation story of the Old Testament: the Exodus out of Egypt? If so, then I have just the movie for you, Patterns of Evidence: Exodus. Patterns of Evidence: Exodus is an in-depth investigation by documentary filmmaker Timothy Mahoney searches for answers to these questions amid startling new finds that may change traditional views of history and the Bible.
I must admit, when I initially started watching this film, I was a little concern because the films starts by talking about the evidence that the Israelites exodus out of Egypt did not really happen. In fact, the film interviewed several leading archaeologist and men of faith that reported the scientific evidence shows that the exodus as described in the Bible did not happen.
However, as the filmmaker began to look deeper at the evidence I found myself fascinated. Specifically, the film showed the tomb of Joseph and spoke about how his bones/remains were not there. Other parts of the film were interesting are the 12 tombs (one for Joseph and each of his brother; Joseph’s tomb was more elaborate and similar to a king’s tomb); houses that were similar to ones that might have been found in the area of Syria, a large canal with the name with something like "Joseph's canal" and evidence that support the walls of Jericho falling down.
I would encourage everyone to add this film to their DVD collection. In addition, this film would make an excellent resource for those that choose to home-school.
Well that is all for now, continue to pray for me and know I am praying for you.
