The Exodus saw about two million people—603,550 males and their families flee from Egypt towards the promised land. This important event which leads to the fulfilment of God’s promise to Abraham by making of him a great nation, giving his descendants a land flowing with milk and honey as well as confirming the covenant (including the 10 commandments) with Abraham’s descendants.
The documentary above shows the full discovery of Mt Sinai which had already been known by locals for hundreds of years by the name “Jebel Musa” (Mountain of Moses). Access to the mountain and the other archaeological sites that go with the full account of the Exodus has been restricted making it very difficult to record and report to the world. There are so many details to the account of the Exodus which is a documented record of the entire journey, what they did and what they saw along the way. This has made it possible to be absolutely sure that this is the exact location and journey that Moses took.
The sacred historical and religious site has been acknowledged by the Saudi Commission for Tourism & Antiquities and has a large sign and fence saying “ARCHAEOLOGICAL AREA: It is unlawful to trespass, violators are subject to penalties stipulated in antiquities and museums and archaeological heritage regulations passed by Royal Decree No. M 3, Date 9/1/1436 H.”
Below are the main discoveries that piece the whole puzzle together:
Mt Sinai is the mountain in the Bible where Moses received the 10 commandments, (Exodus 20; Deuteronomy 5) and is one of the most important locations in the biblical exodus when the Israelite’s were fleeing from the Egyptians. In Exodus 3:1, Moses spoke of looking after the flocks of Jethro, his father-in-law, who comes from the town of Al Bad, which is only 15miles from Jebel el Lawz (Mt Sinai) in Saudi Arabia.
Rephidim is on the western side of the mountain, and this is where Moses and the Israelite’s camped before reaching Mt Sinai. This is where Moses struck the rock which then flowed with water. A 60 foot rock is found here, with a massive fissure and signs of water erosion although it is in a dessert region. At this same site, a square 20 foot alter is found which was built after the Children of Israel defeated the Amalakites. Moses was in Elim in Saudi Arabia in the Midian region on his way to Mt Sinai, where he came to the 12 wells and palm trees – these exact 12 wells were also discovered, in Elim.
At the foot of Mt Sinai, a 5,000 square acre enclosed piece of land was discovered which is certainly large enough for the Israelite’s to have made camp. Rock carvings and artefacts like pottery were also found in this area. Some of the rock-carvings depict the Hathor and Apis bulls on alter stones of the golden calf. The first ever golden lamp stand was made at Mt Sinai, and an image of the golden oil lamp (which is believed to be the oldest one ever found) was found on a boulder in the encampment area.
In Exodus 19:18 it is written that the mountain was covered in smoke as the Lord descended onto it with fire. Mt Sinai has a blackened peak as if it were burnt unlike the other mountain peaks in the area who do not have blackened peaks. The alter of the golden calf is also present with Mt Sinai in the background, as well as Elijah’s cave in the mountain peak next to Mt Sinai.
This major discovery is without a doubt the true location of the real Biblical Mt Sinai as all the intricate parts to the story can be seen and accounted for. Join us on a journey of discovery as we piece together the accounts of the Bible and prove through archaeology, science, history, prophecies and testimonies that the accounts are absolutely accurate – meaning God and everlasting life is real and available for all!
