Hello my Friend!

If you are one who loves mystery or solving puzzles, or if you enjoy studying ancient history, or if you want to learn more about the Bible, I have something special to share with you today that is fascinating and exciting.

About Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus:
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.  

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 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres. 

Take a look at the trailer . . . 

My thoughts:
This brand new, 199 minute DVD releases August 4, 2015. It is not rated (NR) and has a Dove rating of Family Friendly. I was engaged with this fascinating documentary from the first note of music. Have you ever had a personal crisis of faith? Did you go looking for an answer to your crisis? That is exactly what happened to filmmaker Timothy Mahoney and is what led him on the search for Truth. He traveled around the world on a 12-year journey to find the answers. The results are an impressive amount of evidence, not only for the people of ancient Israel, but also for the Exodus, specifically. I'm not giving any of the evidence away here, because I highly recommend this film and encourage you to view it for yourself. 

I don't need archaeological evidence for my faith in Jesus but it can add to the foundation of faith I already possess. I appreciate Mr. Mahoney's search for Truth and all of the information he has shared in this film. I learned many things that I had never heard before and am in awe of my God once again as I ponder His Truth and Power. I have so many places I'd like to travel to, and Egypt is now on my list. I plan to have my homeschool children view Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus in the new school year. I think they will be just as fascinated by it as I am. 

P.S. The music is significant and incredibly beautiful, so I wanted to mention it, as well. Don't miss it!
