This product far exceeded my expecations. The main feature is fascinating, well-researched and well-written. The evidence strongly points to an early date for the Exodus (1445 BC), Mt. Sinai being Jebel al-Lawz in Saudi Arabia (Galatians 4:25), and the crossing of the Red Sea taking place at the site known today as Nuweiba Beach, where a natural land bridge connects the Sinai and Arabian Penninsulas. For a $10 pricetag I thought this video was well worth the purchase and something that I will watch over and over again. I was also pleasantly surprised to discover that it's in widescreen format and contains more than 3 hours of viewing when you include all the extra features. Get it while you can!
The Exodus revealed provides a reasonable explanation that does account for the Scriptural facts and does not rely on Mt. Sinai being in the Egyptian Peninsula instead of Midian where scripture puts it. I believe it is well worth watching.
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.
