Episode 4 – The Hunt For 10 Plagues and the Exodus From Egypt

PATTERNS OF EVIDENCE: YOUNG EXPLORERS
A group of ten young people join filmmaker Timothy Mahoney, Director of Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus, on an adventure to investigate amazing evidence that matches the Bible. But there is more to the investigation than Tim lets on. He has a secret device, the Exploration Chamber. This holographic space allows the explorers to talk with real archaeologists, explore ancient evidence and visit the locations in Egypt and Israel where the events of the Exodus actually happened. Before each adventure they discover secret messages directing them to search their Bibles for clues in the text. What the Young Explorers find is a pattern of evidence that matches the Exodus and excites their faith.
In today’s culture there is strong opposition to the validity of the Bible. These attacks are often aimed at young people in the areas of science and history. Even in some Christian circles there is a trend to downplay the Bible as an accurate historical account from creation onward. However, the Christian faith is uniquely built on God acting through history, and all the Bible’s teachings flow from that reality. That is why Patterns of Evidence: Young Explorers is so important today. It demonstrates compelling evidence that affirms the trustworthiness of the Bible.
The Young Explorers search for the next steps of the Bible’s account – the Judgment of Egypt and the departure of the Israelites from that devastated land. Will their trip into the forest and the book of Exodus provide clues to these events and where they belong in history? Tim searches Egypt for the real Pharaoh of the Exodus and the Exploration Chamber brings them up close and personal with the biblical events, while revealing some surprises along the way.
