The Exodus Decoded

I saw a History channel program on the Jews and their Exodus from Egypt.
I began watching with my usual trepidation. How many of these shows bring in the "theologians" that explain awayall that the Bible said?
But this show was GREAT! It repeated what we have seen over and over and over.
When truth seekers take the scriptural accounts and look for who and what they say, where they say and when, marvelous thing occur.
I cannot recommend this program highly enough!!!

From the History Channel:
The story of the Exodus invokes an epic tale--Pharaohs and Israelites, plagues and miracles, splitting of the sea and drowning of an army, and Moses. It's at the heart of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. After much research--working with archaeologists, Egyptologists, geologists, and theologians--filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici concluded that the Exodus took place hundreds of years earlier than thought. With a new timetable, Jacobovici reexamined artifacts and discovered that the traditional consensus on the date was reached without reference to Judaic texts that record the oral traditions. When Jacobovici consulted these texts, they revealed names of people and places unknown to researchers until recently when extensive excavations in the Nile Delta took place. Teaming up with special effects designers, he created a unique digital experience of the Exodus. Blending archaeological findings with eye-catching effects, Jacobovici creates a virtual museum to showcase his discoveries.

One can only imagine what all will come together when (if) the Egyptians allow full and open exploration of the archaeological sites. And even more when Jerusalem is treated with scientific respect. Although I wonder if that won't take place when the Lord returns and rules from there!
