Over the last seventy-five years, Moses and the exodus have been the subject of a number of films. Although these films are based on the biblical text, they all make changes to that text in the transition from the page to the screen. These changes reveal the malleability of the biblical text in the hands of filmmakers as they each reshape it for their own times. This article will examine four of the best-known Moses films to demonstrate how Moses and the events of the exodus have been used to serve the goals and views of the filmmakers.
