“The big one for me, other than realizing I had no idea about Moses at all, was just how complex a character he was,” Christian shared.

Christian added, “He was a very troubled, tumultuous man and mercurial. But the biggest surprise was the nature of God. He was equally very mercurial.”

    “The idea that they [Moses and the Pharaoh Ramses] were brothers and then rivals and later go to war with each other was very interesting,” stated Bale. Were Moses and his Egyptian brother Ramses II (speculative identification) friendly rivals as the new film trailer portrays? The Bible tells us nothing of the kind. This is merely Hollywood hype in order to build tension for the coming Exodus confrontations. There is no clear evidence that Ramses II was the Egyptian Pharaoh during the time of Moses, it may have been Amenhotep II. Amenhotep II reigned 35 years (circa. 1453-1415 B.C.E.) ceasing his campaigns after 1444 B.C.E. Why? Amenhotep II bragged profusely of his military abilities. As we know from history Amenhotep II’s campaigns were in 1450, 1446 and the last one in 1444 B.C.E. (Palestine). Could it be that this rulers six hundred chariots could’ve been eliminated? If so how? Amenhotep II would not have had an effective army after 1446 due to the devastating effects of the Red Sea crossing and a minor force in 1444. If you have no army you have no chariots and have little or no ability to campaign and conquer.
