I was recently given the opportunity to review this DVD. I felt it would be something that Bob and I would enjoy, as we enjoy history and shows about archeology. It's always wonderful to see something that we've read about in the Bible, coming up in archeology.
However, it seems that most of the world's most prominent archaeologists and historians say 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.
I really appreciated the way he looked into this, with an unbiased approach. He interviews people who are Jewish, Christian and agnostic and shows us some very interesting things.
The narrator is Actor Kevin Sorbo, and included are guest appearances by Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu and Shimon Peres.
Both Bob and I really enjoyed this one and I think you will too. You can check out more on this DVD and order it here.
The makers of this DVD are giving a copy to one of my readers. If you are interested, just leave a comment here. I'll be drawing a winner and posting it on Saturday.
