Riddle of the Exodus

Riddle of the Exodus reveals startling parallels between the archaeological record of Egypt and ancient Jewish accounts of the Biblical Exodus. The documentary, based on the book of the same name, offers compelling evidence that challenges popular misconceptions regarding the identity of the pharaoh who enslaved the Hebrew people and demonstrates how the Ten Plagues hastened the end of the pyramid age.

"...Contemporary scholars and theologians can ill afford to overlook this groundbreaking work..."
- Rabbi Benjamin Blech, Professor of Talmud, Yeshiva University, NY

"It belongs in all serious history courses that purport to teach western civilization...." - Dr. Eugene E. Narrett
