    • 502 Words
    • 3 Pages

    I believe that the Hebrew Exodus happened the way the Bible told it. There is archeological evidence and especially textual evidence. The people and archeologist who say there was no Exodus weren’t basing their claims on evidence, but the fact that they didn’t find much. Finding and digging up artifacts from that time period is a very hard task. So just because they haven’t found any doesn’t mean it’s not out there.

According to the Bible in Romans 1:20, God has revealed Himself and His qualities to the world…
