The Moses Controversy- Another Angle Plus New Revelation
The recent interest in the movie- The Moses Controversy- involves a potentially false major assumption. New analysis and information is broadcast here, with potential evidence of key Exodus era themes.
Two current, and interrelated, publications delve into the longstanding and complicated question of whether or not Moses was a historical person and/or the authenticity of the Biblical story surrounding Mount Sinai and the 10 Commandments.
A new movie is airing in select theaters, starting on March 14th- titled "The Moses Controversy"
Dr. Douglas Petrovich (Ph.D) recently published a book titled, "The World's Oldest Alphabet: Hebrew As the Language of the Proto-Consonantal Script". In said book he makes the claim that Moses did indeed have access to an alphabet/ writing mechanism in order for him to write down God's Law given atop Mount Sinai (according to the Bible). However, there are concerns with the means that Dr. Petrovich arrived at his conclusion- according to Dr. Ronald Stewart (Ph.D), an archeologist, historian, and imaging expert.
Stewart states that the basis of Petrovich being able to ascertain legible language/script characters is faulty. "Dr. Petrovich's investigative computer program's (Power-Point)
To test his own theory on the subject, Stewart notes a rebuttal test conducted by a Dr. Nathaniel Greene- who agrees with Stewart in that this magnification procedure seemed to make the stele picture analysis more difficult and blurry than just the normal 100% viewing. Following Greene's test procedure, Dr. Stewart also performed his own similar test- with similar results which contradict that of Petrovich.
To fully present his own opinions and analysis as this newer interest in Moses is occurring, Dr. Stewart is releasing his own book on the topic, called "Beyond The World's Oldest Alphabet; Hebrew Memories At Mount Sinai". In addition to the theories stated above, Stewart also has a different interpretation of what is shown in the noteworthy Sinai 115 stele- regarding some historical engravings.
"Dr. Petrovich's translation of the stele artifact does not depict persons who were directly related to the biblical patriarchs, like Abraham. Rather, these depictions or petroglyphs are "pre-writing Hebrew depictions" of allegedly the 'Pharaoh of the Moses era',". Stewart also asserts that right below this potential "Pharaoh" is a detailed scene of the Israelites as they cross through the midst of the Red Sea.
The culmination of Stewart's book gives a couple of examples of "pre-writing-
All told, the quest for answers regarding the life of Moses and the Exodus story is alive and well in 2019- even if varying experts have contradictory theories.
