Any investigation of the Exodus must begin in the Nile River Delta where, according to the Bible, Joseph and his family once immigrated to the land of Goshen during a famine in the 18th century BC. But is there archeological evidence that a large Israelite population once inhabited northern Egypt?
More confirmation of an Israelite exodus from Egypt is found in evidence that Israel invaded, conquered and settled in Canaan--the “promised land”-- between the 14th and 12th centuries BC.
The Old Testament records God’s command to Moses to lead the Israelites directly to Mt. Sinai after leaving Egypt. But where exactly was the “mountain of God”? At least 15 different sites have been proposed in the Sinai Peninsula. Are any of them the real Mt. Sinai?
A vital clue to the actual location of Mt. Sinai is the land of Midian. It was there Moses fled and hid from Pharaoh after killing an Egyptian soldier. In Midian, God first spoke to Moses through a burning bush at the base of his holy mountain.
The search for Mt. Sinai moves from the Sinai Peninsula to northwestern Arabia, where remarkable clues lead to the highest mountain in what was once the ancient land of Midian. It is called Jabal al Lawz. Could this mountain be the place where God first spoke to Moses?
The route of Israel’s exodus from Egypt is also defined by the beach where Moses parted the Red Sea. Five different locations for this event have been theorized in northern Egypt. None of them matches the Biblical description.
Scientist Lennart Moller leads a team of researchers and filmmakers to the Gulf of Aquaba in search of evidence for Israel’s Red Sea crossing. At a peninsula called Nuweiba Beach they discover stunning parallels to the Biblical record.
When the Israelites left Egypt they traveled across the Sinai Peninsula on a trade route that extended from the Nile Delta to Midian. Then, as they neared the top of the Gulf of Aqaba, God dramatically changed their direction and led them to Nuweiba Beach--the shore of the Red Sea.
Trapped on the beach between towering mountains and the Red Sea, Moses and the Israelites see God do the impossible—part the waters of an ocean. The setting for this incredible event is documented and explored.
If Pharaoh’s army was destroyed in the Red Sea, evidence of their chariots and weapons may still exist off the coast of Nuweiba Beach. A team of divers and a robotic camera search for ancient artifacts that would further confirm the Biblical account of the Exodus.
There’s an old proverb that says, “God is in the details.” The truth of those words has never been more obvious. Every day, 21st century technology opens extraordinary windows on biological systems once too small to see with our unaided eyes. In this fascinating video, superb microscopic photography reveals some of the hidden wonders that enable butterflies to thrive on earth, while filling our eyes with unforgettable evidence of intelligent design in the living world.
Few sights in nature are as beautiful and wondrous as a bird in the air. This visually stunning short film explores the biological systems that make avian flight possible. In the process, compelling evidence for the purpose, foresight, and design on display throughout the created order is clearly and powerfully revealed.
On a planet filled with living organisms that are wonderfully equipped to travel though water, one surprising creature stands out as the most efficient swimmer of them all—the jellyfish. This remarkable animal has no skeleton, blood or heart, yet it’s designed to expend the least amount of energy as it journeys through the oceans of the world. The biological engineering involved has captivated scientists who seek to re-create its unexpected genius in the form of robotic locomotion.
In the spring of 1863, America stood on the brink of collapse as the Civil War turned the country into a house divided. At the height of this tragedy, Abraham Lincoln issued an appeal for national repentance, fasting, and prayer. Today, more than 150 years later, the 16th president’s heartfelt plea for divine healing and restoration still resounds with power, relevance and truth.
To fuel its heart and wings a hummingbird eats 4-8 times an hour. The mechanisms that enable a hummer to consume several times it body weight in nectar each day are revealed in this unforgettable study of biological engineering and intelligent design.
