I was interested in Patterns of Evidence, Exodus as a review to be able to show the teens that gather here in my home, show them the physical evidence that the Bible is true, historically, with quite a bit of archeological evidence to back it up.
I had no idea that the tables had turned 50 years ago, so much so that now the majority of the archaeologists and historians do not believe that there is any ANY hard evidence for the Israelites to even have been anywhere near Egypt, to have had a need to leave, or Exodus.
I think I watched the entire first half of the movie with my jaw dropped as expert after expert explained away why the Bible story isn’t true. Dates, places, digs. I was astonished. It was compelling to watch, and hear how it can all be explained away.
After hearing what Timothy Mahoney was up against, the tables turned, as he walked the same places, filming, interviewing, and looking at the timeline with better clarity. The excerpt below says that “This scientific documentary’s goal is to communicate the TRUTH of the Bible and help equip believers with defending their faith and the Bible. “ We no longer live in an age where people believe, that even historically, the stories in the Bible are true. In my day as a teen, the flood, creation, and revelations were considered unbelievable. Now, the entire thing is.
I think this is an excellent film for all ages. Specifically if you are like me, a bit older, and grew up seeing the evidence, archeology, artifacts, etc point towards verifying the historical data in the Bible. It is hard to wrap your mind around how the last 50 years has wiped that away, and you’ll see the struggle if this generation to believe in the facts.
If they can’t believe in the facts – how will they make the turn to believe in a person who came from this line, who died for their sins, and offers Kingdom Victory Living today?
I have a copy of the DVD available to give away –

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.

This is so educational for us and our families.. This Dvd will be such a blessing!
Like you, I was really blown away to hear that the Exodus was “just a Jewish story” except I heard it during an adult Sunday School class from the local university history teacher who also happened to be a lay leader in our (former) methodist church. No mention in Sunday School, of why Jesus would perpetuate the celebration of this “story,” or time his perfect sacrifice to this “story.”
Really glad to see a video taking on this issue!
