Did the Exodus really happen? Be sure to watch “Patterns of Evidence” and find out!
The film, produced in Jan 2015, describes numerous findings related to the Exodus, including…
- Archaeological findings of evidence of Hebrew habitation in ancient Egypt
- New historical findings as to the timeline of the events of Exodus, as well as…
- Contemporary events in ancient Egypt.
The film is based on historical work by Pete Windahl from Mahoney Media and historian David Rohl, who worked for more than 10 years to find archaeological evidence for the story of Exodus. It is based on the New Chronology developed by Rohl. Their evidence is arranged in chronological order, which they claim matches the biblical and Assyriology chronology.
The film features interviews with archaeologists, historians, and biblical scholars; these experts provide commentary on some of the archaeological findings depicted in the film. They also provide commentary on existing findings, providing some analysis to discuss how those findings might provide the authenticity of the biblical narrative of the Exodus.
One significant argument presented in the film is that the current predominant analysis that asserts that the Exodus occurred around 1250 BC is incorrect. The film presents numerous pieces of evidence which claim that the era for the Exodus can be set at around 1450 BC, based on both biblical sources. The film presents numerous items of archaeological significance to offer corroboration for this hypothesis. This would place these events approximately around the era of the reign of Amenhotep II.
The last half hour featured a panel of non-experts in biblical or historical studies who attempted to evaluate the argument. (Source: Wikipedia)
