The Red Sea Miracle 1 Digit - Collector's Edition

Patterns of Evidence: The Red Sea Miracle – Collector's Edition travels to the ancient lands of the Bible with award-winning filmmaker Timothy Mahoney (Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus, The Moses Controversy) as he dives deeper into the contentious debate over how and where the Exodus took place. This 6-disc box set includes a DVD and Blu-ray of the film and nearly 8 hours of new information on 4 bonus DVDs.

The Exodus out of Egypt is one of the most dramatic and foundational accounts in the Bible. After crossing a wilderness, the Israelites became trapped at a sea by Pharaoh and his chariots. God then miraculously saved the Israelites and destroyed the Egyptian army. Did these events take place as recorded in the Bible, and if so, where did they happen?

Discover more biblical and geographic evidence for how far and fast the Israelites traveled toward their final destination of Mt. Sinai. Bonus features include unseen interview footage and the popular Fathom Event panel discussion held at the Ark Encounter.

Were the Ten Plagues merely acts of nature? Did God really miraculously lead millions of Israelites through a large desert to a distant sea? Does the lack of hard evidence at the traditional sites mean the events didn't happen or have we been looking in the wrong places all along?

    Does the biblical information favor total numbers of 20 thousand Israelites or 2 million? This question is a complicated piece of the Exodus journey. Go deeper into the arguments for the two main views that debate the true size of Israel’s population.

  • How Long to Reach a Population of Millions?

    A common argument against the Israelite population reaching millions by the Exodus, is that they did not have enough time in Egypt to make that feasible. Could they have gotten to millions within 4 centuries - what about in 2 centuries or in 4 generations?

  • The Israelite Multiplication Challenge

    If the Israelite population continued to multiply at the same rate that led to millions while in Egypt, what would happen in future generations? Would these ballooning numbers be a valid reason to reject the idea of millions by the time of the Exodus?

  • The Canaan Challenge to Large Numbers

    Before the Conquest the Bible says that the Israelite population was smaller than the nations that lived in Canaan. How many people lived in Canaan at the time, and what does this mean for the idea that there were millions of Israelites?

  • The Egypt Challenge to Large Numbers

    If there were really 3 million or more Israelites by the time of the Exodus, the size of their population may have rivaled that of Egypt. See the opposing arguments for why that would - or would not - be believable and fit the Bible’s descriptions.

  • How Was Moses Prepared to Lead?

    The many years Moses spent in Egypt and in Midian trained him in unique ways to lead the Exodus. See how his time in Pharaoh’s court, as a military leader, and as a shepherd prepared Moses to lead multitudes and their flocks out into the wilderness.

  • Were the 10 Plagues Merely Acts of Nature?

    Some view the miracles of Exodus, such as the plagues, as God only working through natural means in ways that have been seen before. However, others think that many were so spectacular they could only be explained as acts of God.

  • And Pharaoh Sent the Israelites Out

    Rabbi Manis Friedman gives his insights to the Departure step of the Israelites from Egypt. Did Pharaoh just let them go, or did he command them to leave at once, thrusting them out of his country?

  • Was the Mount Sinai Destination in Midian?

    What was the initial Direction of the Exodus journey? The Israelites were initially headed to Mount Sinai, which many believe was in or very near the land of Midian, where Moses had spent 40 years of exile. But where was Midian?

  • The “Way of the Philistines” Debate

    The way of the land of the Philistines is one of the few Exodus locations known with certainty. The Bible clearly states that the Israelites did not go this way; however, there is disagreement about whether or not the Israelites really traveled in this direction.

  • Deleted Scene: Picnic Song

  • How Many Days to the Sea?

    Determining the Exodus route to the sea is all about time and distance. Was the sea reached in just 3 days or was it more than 3 weeks? Explore biblical clues to how many days it took the Israelites to cross the wilderness before they reached the sea.

  • The First 2 Camps of Succoth and Etham

    In the Bible, God commands Moses to record a list of the stops during the Exodus journey. The first 2 camps on this list are seen very differently by the Egyptian and Hebrew approaches. Were these camps inside Egypt or out in the wilderness?

  • How Far Could the Animals Travel?

    One factor determining the speed at which Moses and the Israelites could have traveled was the capabilities of the animals with them. How far can sheep go? Was there enough water for them all? And could some animals actually help them travel faster?
