    The historicity of the Hebrew scriptures is accurate beyond dispute. Collective records are extant that positively prove the reality of events relating to the descendants of Abraham from tribe to nation. So many proofs exist regarding so many areas of the history of Israel that its accuracy should not be doubted in the absence of proofs of the Exodus. Future explorations will undoubtedly provide more details about the Exodus.
