One thought to “Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus (2014)”
This was a great documentary, describing the controversy of when the Exodus happened, and providing substantial evidence for a timeframe earlier than commonly held by most archeologists. Apparently, most Egyptologists and scholars believe that the Exodus occurred during the reign of one of the Ramesses, but as no evidence is found in that time period, most discredit the entire story as a myth and legend, having only a moral and not historical value. But what if they are looking in the wrong time? This documentary gives substantial evidence that the Exodus really did occur as the Bible described – two centuries earlier than presumed. Some of these discoveries are fascinating, such as the remains of Joseph of Egypt’s palace, pyramid tomb, and a huge statue of him. All of this goes to show that the Bible is truly history!
