Storyline

Exodus Decoded is a documentary created by Jewish Canadian filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici, in which new evidence in favor of the historicity of the Biblical Exodus is explored. It is partially narrated by film director James Cameron. Jacobovici suggests that the Exodus took place around 1500 BCE during the reign of pharaoh Ahmose I, and coincided with the eruption of Santorini that most scholars believe ended the Minoan civilization. In the documentary, the plagues that ravished Egypt in the Bible are explained as having resulted from that volcanic eruption, and a related collapse in the Nile river delta. While much of Jacobovici's archaeological evidence for the Exodus comes from Egypt, a surprising quantity comes from Mycenae, on mainland Greece. Written by Anonymous

Connects a lot of dots
10 August 2018 | by davidekersSee all my reviews

It makes sense how the water turning to blood was actually a gas leak below the water, turning the water red and killing life, and how that phenomenon has happened before.

It makes sense how the frogs can survive that type of gas leak in the water but would leave the water... creating the plague of frogs.

It makes sense how lice, flies, epidemic, boils and blisters are all a result of this.

It makes sense that the volcanic eruption of Santorini is the next step of the gas leak below the water and how that is the rain of fire and ice - volcanic lava being shot up so high into the atmosphere that it hails back down.

It makes sense that locusts would be fleeing the cloud of ash from the volcano.

It makes sense that the cloud of ash creates darkness and the low poisonous gas that follows kills the first born Egyptian children because they sleep in the lowest area of their homes in a special bed and Israelite children slept on the roofs.

This movie continues to connect dots. I loved it.
