The demand was so high for "Patterns of Evidence: Exodus," a documentary exploring historical evidence that the biblical Exodus actually unfolded, that the film is heading back to the big screen for an encore presentation this week.
The movie — shown last Monday in more than 600 theaters across America for a one-night-only presentation — will be heading back to select theaters on January 29 at 7 p.m., according to a press release announcing the follow-up presentation.
As TheBlaze previously reported, "Patterns of Evidence: Exodus," produced by filmmaker Tim Mahoney, "chronicles an in-depth archaeological investigation in Egypt as [Mahoney's] team attempts to corroborate the biblical text."
The documentary has been in the making for the past 12 years, with its release sparking new interest in Mosaic theology and the Exodus.
Mahoney, who for more than a decade has been studying whether the Israeli people were truly delivered from slavery in Egypt under Moses’ leadership, told TheBlaze in an interview last week that he became especially interested in further exploring the paradigm when he heard that there could be new information worth looking at.
And he said he found himself particularly stunned when he heard some critics state that the Israelis were never really in Egypt — a claim that, if true, would turn the Bible on its head.
So, Mahoney set out to look for clues to finding the route the Israelis would have taken to exit Egypt and head toward the promised land. And after conducting extensive research and formulating it into “Patterns of Evidence,” Mahoney said he now has more confidence in the Bible.
“Most of the people who say there’s no evidence [for the Exodus] are looking at a particular time frame,” he said. ”When they look at that time frame they don’t see any evidence of the Exodus and so the case is closed … and what the film does from talking to other scholars is say, ‘Wait a minute. This isn’t a closed case, this is a situation where people haven’t asked the right questions.”
Mahoney continued, "It’s not easy to find a specific character like Moses in the investigation, but you can find the events that support the story of Moses and Exodus."
