A series of 12 programmes Written and presented by Magnus Magnusson 4: Exodus
Few books can have given the western world so much rich inspiration as the Book of Exodus, with its stories of the parting of the Red Sea, Moses and the Ten Commandments, the gift of manna and the 40 years in the wilderness. Tonight we move from Egypt, through the spectacular Sinai desert to Mount Sinai and on through Jordan to Mount Nebo where Moses was allowed a glimpse of the Promised Land of Canaan before he died.
But which route did Exodus take?
Can the present-day desert-dwellers, the Bedouin, give us an image of life for the wandering Children of Israel? What, exactly, is manna? Why is there so little archaeological evidence for many of the places mentioned in the Exodus story? Perhaps there never was an exodus, as the Bible describes it?
