The Exodus has become a core tradition of Western civilization, but did it happen? Unable to find physical evidence, many archaeologists and scholars claim this mass migration is a story, not history.
The author discusses his search using state-of-the-art archaeological breakthroughs and other disciplines, to bring evidence of a historical basis for the Exodus. He argues that the biblical account of millions fleeing Egypt may be an exaggeration, but is not a myth, and its implications are monumental for the formation of monotheism and values of compassion and equal rights today.
