This documentary provides compelling evidence of Old Testament events using six main sections under a framework of millennia: the arrival of Jacob and his family, population multiplication in Goshen, slavery, God’s judgments via Moses, the Exodus, and Joshua’s conquest of Canaan.
Standout evidences include the Ipwer Papyrus containing the plagues of Egypt, the statue of Joseph and his [empty] tomb in Avaris, Goshen, and the ruins of Jericho with its burnt grain stores and fire-damaged interior.
Filmmaker Tim Mahoney approaches his project from an almost agnostic position and without much scripture, so the production does not have a direct evangelistic impact. The most lively (and persuasive) historian David Rohl, though an agnostic, seems more zealous than Mr Mahoney.
At 119 minutes and with great summaries after each chapter the education value is high. For those that already believe the Holy Bible there is much ‘ammunition’, meaning even less reasons for the sceptic to remain scornful.
