I love learning about the Bible and having a visual journey is always amazing. Â While there are some things I agree with and some that I am not so sure about, either way I loved Patterns of Evidence! Â I reviewed Patterns of Evidence: Exodus before and greatly enjoyed it! Â It inspired research and deeper study which can never be a bad thing!
The BibleâsÂ ExodusÂ account is under attack from many of the worldâs leading experts who say there is no evidence for this foundational story â they claim itâs just a myth. Faced with the skepticism, filmmaker Timothy Mahoney experienced a crisis of faith. Mahoney had been investigating the BibleâsÂ ExodusÂ account, and this controversy forced him to refocus on one question â is there any evidence that this fundamental story really happened?
The result of the 12-year investigation was the feature-length documentary film,Â Patterns of Evidence: theÂ Exodus. It reveals a powerful and faith-affirming pattern of evidence matching the major events of the BibleâsÂ ExodusÂ and Conquest accounts in the archaeology of Egypt and Israel.
This evidence has been largely unrecognized because it exists in an earlier period of history than where most scholars are looking. Yet the historical information in the Bible itself points to theÂ ExodusÂ happening in a historical period that is centuries earlier than the standard view today.
Mahoney combines a vivid retelling of the biblical story with interviews of top authorities from both sides of the debate in an investigation spanning the ancient and modern worlds. His bold new approach identifies six primary steps of theÂ ExodusÂ account before looking for evidence matching these steps wherever it exists in Egyptâs history. The results are startling and could fundamentally transform the way the world views history and the Bible.
