Last night I viewed Patterns of Evidence: Exodus. It's a well done film that goes carefully through the Biblical account and shows the archaeological evidence for the Exodus. Interviews show archaeological and Biblical experts on all sides of the issue concerning this critical historical and spiritual event, as told in the book of Exodus. I think the evidence presented by filmmaker Tim Mahoney is fair and leaves you the viewer to decide what you believe.
A small stone seal dating to the latter part of the First Temple period (8th to 6th centuries B.C.) has been found in Jerusalem bearing the inscription "Belonging to Matanyahu Ben Ho . . ."—with the last portion missing.
A complex of buildings set up for religious worship, but without human or animal images, has been found at Khirbet Qeiyafa in the Valley of Elah, not far from the location of the ancient Philistine city of Gath.
