Patterns of Evidence: Exodus ~ DVD Review

My Review:

In this documentary style exploration of the 2nd book of the Bible narrated by Kevin Sorbo, Timothy Mahoney digs deep, interviewing some very well known faces in research and also in today's politics. This was a riveting documentary, that was very well done. I loved how he went to great lengths to show how a restructured timeline fits perfectly with history and the landscape of the land before and after the Israelite's inhabited it.

I loved the way that it was put together, splitting the major time periods into 4 sequential parts that would definitely leave behind evidence.

I've been very interested in Egyptian timelines for a long time, and have heard this proposed shift in the timeline from some other sources in the recent past, so this wasn't entirely new to me, but much of the supporting evidence fresh and intriguing.

This was a very well done production, and I would definitely recommend it to any who is even the slightest bit curious. It is so well done and thoroughly researched, I feel that they made a very strong case for their timeline, and I loved the way it was presented, with all the stunning footage and great content.

This new edition of the film includes a full disc of bonus features, featuring cast interviews & bios, well as a look at the music, and what you can do to host a movie event.
