Is there any archeological evidence for the exodus

Where exactly did Moses and the Israelites cross the Red Sea? Experts have for decades panned the Exodus story as myth and legend due not only to a paucity of physical artifacts but also to their own naturalistic bias.
This documentary follows the efforts of a handful of modern, open-minded archeologists as they seek to discover corroborating evidence for the Exodus over three millennia ago. What they find is a convincing trail of documents, artifacts, and coral-encrusted chariot wheels that point to the authenticity of the claims of Scripture.
Faith in God is not dependent on current scholarship or discoveries, but faith grounded in fact has its basis in divine revelation and documented evidence. As Luke expressed in Acts 1:3, Jesus showed Himself alive by "many infallible proofs."
The video does a good job tying in phrases from the Biblical record with historical and geographic analysis. The videography and graphics are professional and compelling.
The director has one primary agenda to push: that the evidence points to a Red Sea crossing in the Gulf of Aqaba (rather than the Suez). I could have wished for more diverse voices in the field of interviewed experts.
Overall, I came away from the video with a profound sense of wonder that, even in the 21st century, we can still uncover traces of events that occurred thousands of years ago. My family and I enjoyed some homemade popcorn and a good discussion time following. I recommend this video for everyone ages ten and above.
This was very interesting but when it says that it is 3 hours long it is misleading. Maybe with both the regular cut and directors cut and all the extras it is 3 hours but who is going to watch both cuts? I think nobody. It is not as comprehensive as I was expecting. The actual show is only 1 hour long and there are several short extras but biblically based and great confirmation of scripture.
