Patterns of Evidence: Exodus DVD Review & #Giveaway! #PATTERNSOFEVIDENCE #FLYBY

I recently had the opportunity to review this new DVD, Patterns of Evidence Exodus. This was quite an interesting film and I was curious to see how it played out. This is not just a documentary as I had first expected, but it isn't animated either. It is a lot of history but in a good way and I found myself intrigued from beginning to end.

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 questions, "Is the Bible just a myth, or did the archaeologists get it wrong?"  He decides to tackle this issue wit 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 Benjamin Netanyahu and Shimon Peres. 

Sitting down to watch this I was first shocked at the start and then quickly pulled in to see how it finished. If you get to see this film, you will know what I am talking about. The narrator is one many will recognize, Kevin Sorbo, and he walks the viewer through the program but we also hear from archaeologists, the Israeli Prime Minister, and the film-maker behind it all. The filming is well done and I thoroughly loved it. Interesting enough that it kept my attention but not sure how well it would keep the attention of the younger guys. Seeing Israel and all the ancient places through the eyes of the lens really made my day.

One winner will receive a brand new copy of the Patterns of Evidence: Exodus movie. You will not be disappointed and I am sure you will enjoy the film as much as I did. USA ONLY. Giveaway will end 8/14. Winner will be chosen through and will have 48 hours to respond or another winner will be chosen.

It's difficult to choose just one but I think the prodigal son is my favorite. It's a reminder that no matter how far we stray, we are always welcomed home.

I like to read about Caleb who seemed to be just getting started good at 80 years old. Since I'm getting closer to 70, reading about his life appeals to me. :)

There are so many that I enjoy it's hard to choose, but I do like when Peter chops the soldiers ear off n Jesus just picks it up and puts it back on. I also like Ruth and Gideon's stories.

It's tough to choose just one, but if I had to I would say the Prodigal son.

I would have to say my favorite Bible story or collection of stories is the 12 Tribes of Israel. From their patriarchal roots to their role in establishing David's monarchy and descendants.
