Beyond the Book: How We Know the Exodus Didn't Happen… and How We Know It Did

Mark Leuchter, Temple University

The Exodus from Egypt has been the foundation of Jewish ritual and theology for millennia. There is little to no archaeological evidence to support the canonical tale is more than fiction or myth. While we know the Exodus didn’t happen as narrated, embedded within that narrative are echoes of the break with Egypt that did take place beyond the Bible – experienced and remembered in Ancient Israel long before the authors of the Book of Exodus crafted their tale.
