Over the last year God’s been stirring a desire within me to dig deeper into my study of His Word.
God has given me several opportunities to examine some of the historical events and cultural norms surrounding Biblical events.
Though my interests have always skewed toward the arts, I am discovering a new love for the scientific and historical evidence for the Bible. Despite what some people think, there is real proof that Biblical events took place!
There is a fresh fire within my soul to study His Word!
When the opportunity arose to preview the DVD Patterns of Evidence: Exodus I knew I wanted to participate. Any time God provides a way for me to peel back the onion layers and uncover more about His Word, I’m in!
Patterns of Evidence: Exodus releases on August 4, 2015.
Here’s a sneak peek:
The search for archeological proof of the exodus and emerging patterns of scientific evidence unravel as the documentary unfolds.
Even if you’re not a science buff (I’m not!), you’ll find the graphics, maps, animations, and re-enactments stunning! Thankfully the producers pause throughout and summarize what’s been uncovered before moving on to the next discovery.
Though 2 hours in length, the documentary moves along at a good pace changing locations and interviewing several well-known archeologists specializing in the regions discussed. Each discovery builds on another.
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 with 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.
Patterns of Evidence: Exodus would be a great documentary to watch with your small group, Sunday school, or Bible study group.
