About the film:


A debate rages over the credibility of the Bible. Most archaeologists today have concluded that there’s no evidence that the Exodus of Israelite slaves from Egypt ever happened. Filmmaker Timothy Mahoney faces a crisis of faith, “Is this foundational event of the Bible really just a myth?” He embarked on a 12-year journey around the world to search for answers.

Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus unlocks the mystery of this ancient saga, combining a scientific investigation with a retelling of the Exodus story to reveal an amazing pattern of evidence matching the biblical account that may challenge our understanding of history. Featuring 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.
The Director’s Choice Edition has many behind the scenes clips whereas the retail version does not.
Special Features:
- Cast Profiles & 17 Extra Interviews
- Behind the Music

Review:
Even though I reviewed this film when it first came out, I was interested in checking it out again, as Miss Grace is set to study Ancient Civilizations this school year, and I wanted to see how I could incorporate it into that study (and crossing over to Bible study as well). I was not disappointed. The movie really helps to show how assumptions can set off a chain of events, even decades long, that then become hard to make disappear. Tim does such a GREAT job in finding evidence, and showing all sides of the story, that it is very hard to not acknowledge that he (and David Rohl) may have found the colossal mistake in archeaological thinking, that has allowed for scientists to say that the Exodus never happened. They also have a valid reasoning for the decline of the Middle Kingdom of Egypt and how it changed SO drastically to become the New Kingdom, that we know so much about.

Even though Miss Grace had watched the DVD before, I could see where with a couple of years of historical knowledge and understanding of scientific theory can now help her better understand the film, and use it as part of her studies, to bring Egyptian and bible history alive. Be sure to check out the Patterns of Evidence blog, for more up to date findings and evidence for bible truths!

I'm thrilled that there is also a companion set, based on this DVD, for home schoolers, Young Explorers-Patterns of Evidence, with its own DVDs and workbook(!!) to help teach this great event in biblical history for elementary and middle schoolers! If you need curriculum, it's a great set to consider, as it crosses over so many different subjects!

Tim is working on a Go Fund Me page for his next project- Patterns of Evidence: Moses! I hope he gets funded, as I think his approach to consider all sides would be a great addition to the Exodus story!
