In college, there was awhile that I considered changing my major to archealogy. I’ve always been hooked on documentaries that focus on the ancient civilizations of the world. The way that archeaologists can study what they find in the ground and piece together various things about the culture is fascinating. Even more exciting to me is seeing Biblical stories and events come to life in the findings of various sites.

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.
I was thrilled when an oppurtunity came along to review this documentary, Patterns of Evidence: Exodus. The documentary takes us to Egypt and surrounding areas to understand why so many archeologists make an argument as to why the Exodus probably never happened. But the video goes beyond that and makes a convincing case as to where the evidence is that supports this well-known Biblical story.
My husband and I both really enjoyed this documentary. I found it extremely well done with the narration from Kevin Sorbo and watching the journey that filmmaker Tim Mahoney took to discover where there are archeological sites that do support the story told in Exodus. The movie was easy to understand and follow and very interesting. I also found that the movie interviewed a variety of people from both sides of the argument. There was also footage from a number of sites relevant to the Exodus.
