Patterns of Evidence! (DVD Review & Giveaway)


Patterns of Evidence


Tim Mahoney's first full feature documentary film, Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus was released in January 2015. This film was 12 years in the making to investigate the biblical Exodus from a scientific angle. His approach gives audiences a way to determine their own opinion and to develop a conversation based on the findings. The film won 13 awards in the 2014 film festival circuit. Before this, he produced numerous productions for Christian organizations including the Billy Graham organization, World Wide Pictures, and Compassion International.

In the film, there are interviews with top experts in Egyptology and archaeology, as well as people of influence in the Middle East.  There are honest questions asked about the story of Exodus in the Bible, and Mahoney allows the evidence to speak for itself while also being respectful of other viewpoints. I thought this was a fascinating approach, because you may view this DVD with someone who has different beliefs than you do.

The film is full of interviews, real footage of Egypt and places where the story of Exodus is discussed in the Bible, and is an absolutely beautiful documentary. It gives graphics of timelines and time frames that are easy to understand, and facts that are proven of the story that you would have never thought of. My husband has biblical knowledge from the college courses he has taken and being raised in the church, and he was amazed at some of the revelations that came from this documentary. 

We really enjoyed viewing this documentary. My sons are younger and were able to understand most of the DVD and enjoyed hearing about familiar stories in the Bible, that they were able to be shown to be true. I would definitely recommend this DVD to be viewed by your family, small group, or as a homeschool study for older students.
