But that doesn’t mean it’s without controversy—not only about the dates it occurred but if it really happened at all and if it did, how does it apply to us today?
Today we’ll look at an introduction to the book of Exodus and the archeology and history behind the true story of God’s deliverance of his people.
The Egyptians left us massive amounts of information about their rulers–tombs, drawings, thousands of statues, and mummies. By careful analysis of the dates of the Exodus (as given in the Bible) and by comparing them with the dates of specific pharaohs in Egyptian history we can look at the faces of the Pharaoh of Joseph’s time, the Egyptian princess who adopted Moses, (and learn some fascinating stories about her), and finally the Pharaoh Moses faced at the time of the Exodus.
This is a fascinating lesson that will increase your confidence that the God of the Bible is also the God in charge of human history. You can listen to the podcast below or on iTunes or any of your favorite podcast sources. Below the podcast is a link to a PDF of the notes for the class.
