Movie Review

            When offered to review Pattern of Evidence Exodus I was very interested since
 I’ve grown up in church and studied the Bible all my life. This film is Tim Mahoney’s first full feature documentary film and it took 12 years to develop. It took a scientific approach and investigated the events of the biblical Exodus. Tim like myself had heard and read all the stories in the Bible but decided to look for material evidence that the stories in Exodus were in fact true. Many movies make me walking away wondering where the filmmaker got his story from but Tim leaves me wanting to dig more into the Bible to understand what has been shown and uncovered.
            This movie won 13 awards in 2014 and includes interviews with some of the top experts in archeology and Egyptology. To me that was interesting to hear and see artifacts that backed up the Bible when there are so many people trying to call it false. The way Tim has done this film lets the viewer make his own decision without being preached at or having Christianity shoved down their throat. There are supplemental resources associated with the film which include a nearly 400-page hardcover book, small group Bible study, Movie Event kit, youth version (called Young Explorers), homeschool curriculum and others.

What Did We Think?
            My 18 year old son and I thought it was a little to long to watch in one viewing, a lot of info to take in, so we broke it down and watched it in two viewings. The film was very well put together and got some interaction from my son with some facts he knew before they were presented. Very impressed with him. Had a little trouble reading some words when the movie was comparing the time line but overall we really liked it. Great addition to our collection.
