First, a history of Moses having lived in
Egypt is found there,
prior to the exodus taking place
Above, baby Moses or Senmut, then right, Moses or Thutmoses 2 as an adult
with serpent on forehead meaning Crown Prince,
Ron Wyatt believed Thutmoses 1 became Amenhotep 1 when he went
from co-regent to emperor. Therefore, these two names are the same person.

AMENHOTEP 1 = Pharaoh at Moses' birth

- HATSHEPSUT XNEM AMEN

The Traditional Site with zero evidence
There is a traditional route of
the Exodus which has the children of Israel wading in shallow water through an
area north of the Gulf of Suez while the tide was out. This area cannot be the
crossing site as it does not match the biblical account. A shallow area of water
could not drown all of the Egyptian army. Also, they were to leave
Egypt proper before encountering the Red Sea crossing. After crossing the Red Sea, the
Bible says they
encountered the mountain of God or Mount Sinai which is in Midian. Midian
is not in the area we call today the Sinai Peninsula. It is instead in Saudi
Arabia and can be found on most maps in that location. The traditional Mt. Sinai was
"found" by Constantine's "psychic" mother who in the fourth
century went around the Holy Land pointing out various sites as the "authentic"
biblical sites, such as the birthplace of Christ, the church of the Holy
sepulcher (which was a pagan temple during her time), etc. There is no
archaeological evidence of the forty year existence of the children of Israel in the Sinai Peninsula.
The Majority of Archaeologists
The majority of archaeologists today do
not have enough faith in the Bible as the accurate word of God. The
majority of archaeologists do not even believe in the exodus of the children of
Israel from Egypt, according to Hershel Shanks, editor of the Biblical
Archaeology Review magazine. They are skeptical of the biblical account, perhaps because of a lack of
archaeological evidence in the
Sinai Peninsula and a lack of faith. We cannot look to these men to tell
us where or if the exodus took place.
The Red Sea Crossing Site Found by Ron Wyatt
The children of Israel lived in the Nile delta area
or the land of Rameses, and first encamped at the northern end of the Gulf of Suez
or Succoth at the beginning of the Exodus. This was the first point where
they went into the camping mode. Then they traveled through the
wilderness of the Red Sea, or what we
call today the Sinai Peninsula, and
encountered the Gulf of Aqaba. (I Kings 9:26 calls this the Red
Map above shows us where Midian is located, in Saudi Arabia,
not the Sinai Peninsula.
Also, Egypt proper is shown in dark green. Light green areas are areas
patrolled by Egyptians.
The Wilderness Has Them Entangled
Wadi Watir had the Children of Israel "entangled." Exit point at the
large beach at Nuweiba (2005)
When traveling through "the wilderness of the Red Sea"
Ex.13:18, escaping Pharaoh's army, God told Moses to turn south, so they headed
through a wadi or canyon area that is called the Wadi Watir which led to the sea. The Bible in
Ex. 14:3 says, "They are entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut
Above, the Wadi Watir winding its way to the Red Sea Crossing
site at Nuweiba, had
the children of Israel
thinking Moses had made a wrong decision to bring them this way.
The Beach Where the Crossing
When arriving at the beach, the children of Israel felt
trapped, as they could not turn back, nor head north because at the northern end
of the beach was a three story, Egyptian military fortress which is still standing today
Egyptian military fortress, possibly Migdol, blocked any northern escape route
along the beach (photo 2005)
Additionally there were mountains obstructing their escape. To the south the mountains came down to the sea, as mentioned by
Josephus, "For there was [on each side] a [ridge of] mountains that
terminated at the sea, which were impassable by reason of their roughness, and
obstructed their flight" Antiquities of the Jews, Bk. 2, 15-3.
You can see the mountains at the beach today.
The people were about to turn against Moses because he had led them to an area where
they were trapped and would surely die, or so they thought.
If one looks on a map for a beach area large enough for 2 million
people to encamp on the gulf there is only one candidate: Nuweiba Egypt.
The beach at Nuweiba is extremely large and could have accommodated a large
people at the time of Moses. Pi-Hahiroth means, mouth of the hole,
which we would apply to the mouth of the canyon above, as mentioned in The
Exodus Revealed DVD. Migdol is a fortress, which we would apply to the
ancient fort which is located at the narrowest point on the beach where
the gulf and the mountains are in close proximity. Today you will find many hotels
there and a village.
The Granite Column of Solomon
This column matches one on the other side of the gulf in Saudi
Arabia which had the inscriptions intact. The Hebrew words Mizram (Egypt), death,
water, pharaoh, Edom, Yahweh, and Solomon were on that column. Apparently one can
Kevin Fisher at the red granite column, marking the crossing site (Oct.
King Solomon had these columns
erected 400 years after the miracle of the crossing of the Red Sea on dry
land. Solomon's sea port was at the northern tip of the Gulf of Aqaba at
(I Kings 9:26) and he was very familiar with the Red Sea crossing site, as it was in his neighborhood. The Bible even
mentions this column! Isaiah 19:19, "In that day there will be an
altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the Lord at its
border." You can visit the beach today and
see the column in person, as I was able to do in Oct. 2005.
Above we can see the pillar on Google Earth, about 500 feet
from the Gulf.
Top of photo shows us where the column is today. The
right side has Nuweiba labled
on the Google Earth map. This is the spot where Ron Wyatt found the column
lying at the edge of the water. The name Nuweiba is short for the name listed below:
Above, we see the full name Nuwayba' al Muzayyinah which means
. . .
Above, Nuwayba' al Muzayyinah means . . . "Waters of Moses
This is amazing, at the exact spot where the crossing took place, we have
the site confirmed by maps!
Gradual Contour of Seabed
God caused a strong east wind to blow the waters back so the people could walk ten miles through the Red
Sea to safety in Arabia. The crossing path is about a quarter to a half mile wide and is on a
gradual slope down to the bottom of the Red Sea and then up to the Saudi beach. On either side of this
path are the depths of the Red Sea, the Eilat Deep and the Aragonese Deep, each
3000 and 5000 feet deep respectively.

Chariot Wheels Found in the Sea at Nuweiba!
Above, chariot wheels fixed to axels standing at attention on
Above, left, photo taken of a gilded chariot wheel that remains
on the sea floor. It was found by Ron Wyatt using a molecular frequency
generator from his boat above, after he set the equipment to search for gold.
The Bible said all the chariots of Egypt and 600 choice chariots, or gold
veneered models, were in the army pursuing God's people. It is speculated
there were 20,000 chariots destroyed that day. Above, right, is a drawing
of a four spoke chariot found in an Egyptian tomb from the same time period.
Four, six and eight spoke wheels are found here in the gulf, and were only used at the
same time during the 18th dynasty or 1446 BC when the exodus took place.
There are numerous chariot wheels, plus human and horse bones at
the crossing site. Above on right, is a human femur bone that is covered by
coral, and was tested at Stockholm University. It is from the right leg of
a man 165-170cm tall. It is basically mineralized by resting in the Red
Sea for 3500 years.
Above is a coral covered chariot wheel on a vertical axel that
is buried in the sand. Although this is atypical, Bill Fry found this within 10 minutes of searching at Nuweiba.
Above: Ron Wyatt found this wheel with the raised center
hub. A common marker is
the raised center hub that will give a metal reading when tested.
Above: I was able to make this ROV from a kit which had
three motors and a video camera.
Above: Live video feed from the ROV was fed into another
camera for recording purposes.
The 100 foot tether connected to controls for left, right, up, down. We
ran this for about 3 hours in 2009.
Above: A chariot wheel was found, possibly connected to
an axel. Notice the raised center hub.
It is against the law to anchor a boat so we were floating by this as the image
was shot by the ROV.
Above is a horse's hoof that is shrunken since drying out.
Horses are not found in the
Sinai Peninsula today
Above: We look across the Gulf of Aqaba and see the
mountains of Saudi Arabia and know that
Mt. Sinai MUST be in there, not in the Sinai Peninnsula
