20 – Moses

“For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgement: I, Jehova. And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the Lord throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance forever.”
Exodus 12:12-14

    Just one thought here. You at some point commented that it is odd that all of this would have happened or perhaps unbelievable rather without it having been recorded by the Egyptians. However you neglect the fact that the ruler of Egypt.based their power on the idea that THEY THEMSELVES were God. And thus Any events such as this would have countered that idea and worked to completely undermine Both the king and their religion which would have turned their world upside down had it become common knowledge.

    Why include 5 or 6 entries of biblical mumbo jumbo not supported by archaeology or credible history in your ostensibly “serious” series?

    If you were Canadian would you devote 4 episodes to the history of hockey and one to world war 2?
