Inaccuracies Between the Movie and the Biblical Account
The movie, in the beginning, notes that it took poetic license from the Exodus account. Examples of that are shown here:
- The movie portrays the Pharaoh of the Exodus as Rameses, however, it is widely believed that that particular Pharaoh was Amenhotep II.
- The movie portrays Moses and Zipporah's relationship as beginning far before Moses fleeing to Midian. This is not portrayed in the Bible.
