Historians, lovers of the Bible, archeology geeks, and inquisitive minds – I have a really interesting giveaway for you this week! This giveaway is a DVD that looks into the validity of the history found in the Bible.
Is it fact or fiction? What does the hard evidence really have to say about the foundational story of the Old Testament – the Exodus out of Egypt?
I have to be truthful; when I was younger, things like this used to bore me to tears. What can I say? Sometimes, honesty is not pretty.
Now that I am an adult though, I find documentaries to be wonderful bits of information that come to life on the screen and teach us things that we may never have known. This documentary in particular, I found to be truly fascinating!
The research that was done was intriguing, as well as the conversations the filmmaker had with all the different experts. Some I agreed with, some I didn’t, but it made for great conversation with my husband afterward.
The most telling part for me was seeing the actual evidence that has been dug up by different archeologists throughout the years. It was almost like seeing the Bible come to life! Want to know more? Check out the trailer below.
To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post and tell me what your favorite documentary is. (As always, make sure to leave a valid email address, as that is how the winner of the giveaway will be contacted.)
Now for the technical info …..
About Patterns of Evidence 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 question, “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.
