Corrected entry: In the movie, screams of terror are heard outside as the Israelis are eating Passover inside. Very unlikely, as the Israelis lived in the land of Gosh-en separate from the Egyptians, and they all followed Moses' instruction to be protected as in Exodus 12: 28 - "And the children of Israel went away, and did as the lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they."
Corrected entry: During the scene when God is burning the 10 commandments into the stone tablets, you can see the writing before it is burned in.
Corrected entry: As the Israelites are departing Egypt, several carts are shown being pulled by water buffalo. Water buffalo are not found in Africa - they are native to India and would have been unknown in Egypt at that time.
Corrected entry: After ascending the throne, Rameses is accepting tribute from many nations. One of the visiting dignitaries is announced as "King Priam of Troy". Priam died at the end of the Trojan War c.1184 BC; Rameses did not ascend the throne of Egypt until c.1290 BC.(Not a mistake. The year BC runs in descending order, while AD runs in ascending order.)
Corrected entry: Pharaoh refers to himself as "Ramses the First", but he just would have been called Ramses - leaders only get numbers when "sequels" come along, and Ramses II doesn't emerge until 40 years later.
Corrected entry: When the Hebrews are leaving Egypt, packed on donkeys carrying water jugs, wearing dusty sandals, the camera pans around to a blind man - wearing a watch.
Corrected entry: There is a scene with a Pepsi can on a rock. A worker must have forgotten to pick it up before filming.
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.
