Ten Commandments

Factual error: When Rameses is casting Moses out into the desert, he stands in his chariot. The pyramids behind him is the Saquara pyramid, so Moses is being sent West into the Sahara, and not East into the Sinai.

Factual error: When Moses is received by the Pharaoh after his Ethiopian campaign, he greets the Pharaoh with a Roman salute (right fist on left shoulder).

Factual error: During Moses' comeback from his Ethiopia campaign, as soon as he presents himself to Pharaoh Seti, he says, "I bring you - Ethiopia!" This is an anachronism, as Ethiopia was known as ABYSSINIA in ancient times much like Siam was to Thailand and Ceylon was to Sri Lanka.

Revealing mistake: When the parted Red Sea comes together, if you look behind Pharaoh as his troops are being engulfed by the water, notice in the background that there are two boulders floating in the water, not being pushed, but floating lightly.

Question: How did Moses cross the Red Sea the first time he went to Mount Sinai?

Answer: Although the Bible never states this, it's implied that he got to Mt. Sinai via an alternate route...after all, he did spend 40 days in the desert wandering around without any direction to go to. Afterwards was a different story.
