Have you ever wondered if events in the Old Testament could be scientifically proven?
Filmmaker Tim Mahoney wondered the same thing. Did the events of the Bible book of Exodus actually happen?
His musings led him on what began as a reluctant worldwide investigation. He freely admits in the film that he is not a scientist, but his analysis and examination of archaeological discoveries over the past few centuries are both diligent and methodical. And…it provides for fascinating, and deeply watchable, television, in Patterns of Evidence Exodus.
He interviewed well-respected archaeologists; theologians; scientists; researchers; and even Israeli political figures as he searched for scientific proof of the Jews’ exodus from Egypt. He interviewed experts on both sides of the question: those who were sure that the Exodus was not a historical event; and those who were certain that it was. He decided on the outset, to look for patterns in history, theology and science to see if indeed the Exodus could be proven.
These are the patterns Mahoney decided to observe:
- The arrival of Abraham’s descendants in Egypt
- The multiplication in Egypt of the Semite peoples
- The enslavement, by Egypt, of the Semites
- The judgment of Egypt
- The deliverance and exodus of the descendants of Abraham
- The conquest of Canaan by the Semites
What is incredible is that Mahoney, in his research and interviews, actually found evidence of each of these things. And multiple cases of evidence that are both engrossing and captivating. Consider, for example:
- The city of Avaris, which is being excavated under the city of Rameses, which was built over it
- Evidence of a foreign people living there
- The Waterway of Joseph
- An Egyptian papyrus recounting events which closely resemble the 10 plagues
- And more!
I don’t want to ruin the pleasure you’d have of watching Patterns of Evidence Exodus. (As a matter of fact, I’m a little worried that I’ve given away too much already!) Suffice it to say, the evidence for an actual Exodus is definitely there. And you’ll be astounded at all that Mahoney has discovered.
As a Christian, I have always believed that the story of Moses and the exodus of the Jews were real-life, historical events. Mahoney leaves the viewer to make his own decision; but I believe that you’ll truly be amazed–and encouraged–at all that he discovered on his quest for truth.
