Exodus of Israel from Eqypt

Chariot_wheel

I ran across a very informative and well documented video available on YouTube of relatively recent archaeological research that was conducted regarding Israel’s Exodus from Egypt and the crossing of the Red Sea.

The link to the video is here: Exodus of Israel from Egypt

Highly recommended, it is 1 hr and 24 minutes but well worth it.

And here are a couple of other links that also provide additional insight into the Exodus from Egypt:

    Eckhart Tolle merely said we are all a part of God. WE all have a piece of him in us as we are his creation. Jesus said BEFORE Abraham was I AM meaning God created Abraham and came before him to do so.

      Thank you for your comment. I’m not sure what Eckhart Tolle has to do with the Exodus of Israel from Egypt posting, as the archeological research it highlights only serves to authenticate the Biblical account of the Exodus. The I AM verse you quote where Jesus, in response to the Pharisees’ question “Who do you think you are?” said, “‘Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad.’ ‘You are not yet fifty years old,’ the Jews said to him, ‘and you have seen Abraham!’ ‘I tell you the truth,’ Jesus answered, ‘before Abraham was born, I am!’ At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds” (John 8:56–59). The violent response of the Jews to Jesus’ “I AM” statement indicates they clearly understood what He was declaring—that He was the eternal God incarnate. Jesus was equating Himself with the “I AM” title God gave Himself in Exodus 3:14. Hope this helps.

    What is your job here? What is your point? To rip apart others?

    • Bruce says:

      If by job or point you mean purpose, then my purpose on this blog is to provide answers to questions people might have about Christian topics. You posted your comment under the Exodus of Israel from Egypt post so you would need to clarify how this particular post might be construed as ripping apart others. My intent is never to rip anyone apart, quite the contrary. Hope this helps.

      • amusingword says:

        What I mean is this: A lot of the points Tolle makes about religion make sense. Religions and their radical followers cause more wars than anything else. Also are you even sure you know what he’s talking about? Have you even contacted him to discuss it?

      • Bruce says:

        Hi, I don’t know your first name or I would use it. Actually religious wars have not caused more deaths than anything else. The truth is, non-religious motivations and naturalistic philosophies bear the blame for nearly all of humankind’s wars. Lives lost during religious conflict pales in comparison to those experienced during the regimes who wanted nothing to do with the idea of God – something showcased in R. J. Rummel’s work Lethal Politics and Death by Government:

        Non-Religious Dictator Lives Lost

        Joseph Stalin – 42,672,000
        Mao Zedong – 37,828,000
        Adolf Hitler – 20,946,000
        Chiang Kai-shek – 10,214,000
        Vladimir Lenin – 4,017,000
        Hideki Tojo – 3,990,000
        Pol Pot – 2,397,0003

        An interesting source of truth on the matter is Philip and Axelrod’s three-volume Encyclopedia of Wars, which chronicles some 1,763 wars that have been waged over the course of human history. Of those wars, the authors categorize 123 as being religious in nature, which is an astonishingly low 6.98% of all wars. However, when one subtracts out those waged in the name of Islam (66), the percentage is cut by more than half to 3.23%.

        The historical evidence is quite clear: Religion is not the #1 cause of war. The fact that Eckhart Tolle got this wrong should make you stop and think what else he got wrong, which by the way, is a lot.

        If religion can’t be blamed for most wars and violence, then what is the primary cause? The same thing that triggers all crime, cruelty, loss of life, and other such things. Jesus provides the answer very clearly: “For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride and foolishness. All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man” (Mark 7:21–23).
        If you do a search on my blog for Eckhart Tolle (Search Box) you will find a good number of posts that thoroughly discuss his book, “A New Earth”, even chapter by chapter. What Eckhart is saying is not new, but to those who haven’t actually taken the time to check and see if his generalizations are accurate and also see what the Bible actually says by reading it and come to an understanding of why Jesus died on the cross and rose again, his book sounds plausible. Eckhart Tolle’s “I AM” and the Bible’s (New Testament and Old Testament) “I AM” is also discussed in detail. Of course, if you’re not familiar with the Biblical scriptures you wouldn’t know that. Eckhart actually counts on that. John 3:16 states, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” If you don’t understand why God found it necessary to do this and why Jesus willingly gave his life to gain eternal life for us, it might be prudent to take a serious look at it. This is from one “Grandpa” to one “Grandma”. God is real and He really loves you. God bless.
