From Egypt to Mount Sinai

Exodus 12:37-19:2

This map traces the journey of the Children of Israel from Egypt to Mount Sinai as described in Exodus 12:37-19:2.

  1. The Children of Israel leave Egpyt from Ramses (Exodus 12:37) on the 15th of Nissan.
  2. Their first stop on the journey from Egypt is Succoth (Exodus 12:37).
  3. From Succoth they travel to Etham (Exodus 13:19).
  4. They camp between Midgol and the sea while the Egyptian army pursues them (Exodus 14:1-14).
  5. The sea splits, allowing the Jews to cross on dry land while the pursuing Egyptian army drowns (Exodus 14:15-31).
  6. The people travel to Marah where they find bitter water.  God sweetens the water for them, gives them some laws and promises to be their healer (Exodus 15:23-26).
  7. In Elim they find 12 springs of water and 70 palm trees (Exodus 15:27).
  8. In the wilderness of Sin they complain about the lack of food and are given manna from heaven and quail to eat (Exodus 16:1-36).
  9. They again lack water in Rephidim.  God provides water from a rock after which Amalek attacks (Exodus 17:1-16).
  10. From Rephidim the people travel to the wilderness of Sinai and camp near Mount Sinai (Exodus 19:1-2).  It is here that they are given the Torah, make the golden calf and build the Tabernacle.

    This appears to be accurate BUT the Children of Israel crossed the Red Sea at Maweiba, on the shore of what is now called the Gulf of Aqaba. In King Solomon's time, it was still called the Red Sea. In fact, King Solomon built his fleet at Elait on the Red Sea (Read the book of Kings). Also, when the strong wind blows, there is a land-bridge between Maweiba and Saudi Arabia. Mount Sinai is in Saudi Arabia and is known today as Jabal-al-laws. The rock of Horeb is not too distant either and there is ample evidence of alters for sacrifice, a dry dam where perhaps a million people and their flocks were watered. Pharaoh's chariots are still on the bottom of the gulf of Aqaba between Maweiba and Sauidi Arabi. They are encrusted with coral with the exception of the wheel coated with electrim. The wood is gone but the electrim stays. Coral does not grow on electrim.

      Mount Sinai is in Saudi Arabia.
      Research Ron Wyatt's discoveries and other documentaries.
      Your map is totally wrong. It was Constantine's mother Helene who decided that Mount Sinai was in Egypt.
      I have been there it is not the TRUE location
      It's time you start either telling the TRUTH or updating your data

      Existe esta fonte de conhecimento, de que a travessia foi feita no Golfo de Aqaba, e que o monte sinai esta em frente e também existe um lugar de sacrifício no local. No entanto temos que levar em consideração os seguintes fatos : toda a sequencia de cidades e suas localizações que são citadas, até se chegar ao Monte Sinai, não podem ser vistas no caminho descrito na Arábia Saudita. Outro fator primordial que acaba com a teoria do Monte Sinai ser na Arábia Saudita, é que logo após a saída dos filhos de Israel saírem de Ramsés, o Faraó veio atras deles e os alcançou rapidamente e no trecho para chegar até a Arábia Saudita levariam muitos dias até chegar lá. Portanto completamente diferente do que diz a Torah.

      Yes! since Sinai is in Saudi Arabia and the natural land bridge God created is full of chariot wheel shaped coral shapes and maybe He Himself kept it secret all these years to protect it from being destroyed.

      • Solomon Gelgor

        Sinai is not in Saudi Arabia! It is the Sinai peninsula in Egypt!

        • Alex Huzau

          The mount Sínai is in the land of Midian and not in Egypt (the Sinai peninsula was always part of Egypt..!). Midian is part of todays Saudi Arabia.
          So, please consider the facts of history and arheology.

      I'm confident Pharaoh's army wasn't drowned and destroyed in a small marsh. There are drawings of footprints in Saudi Arabia (Deut 11:24) along with other artifacts and petroglyphs (even a menorah!), and the huge cracked stone which could very well be the rock struck by Moses (Ex 17:6), and more amazing evidence as shown by multiple resources like those available from the Split Rock Research Foundation. My God is big enough to have parted the Red Sea! And I believe there is evidence enough to show that He really did!
