The real Mt Sinai (Jabal al Lawz) in Saudi Arabia
by Marshall Beeber
You came near and stood at the foot of the mountain while it blazed with fire to the very heavens, with black clouds and deep darkness. Then the LORD spoke to you out of the fire. You heard the sound of words but saw no form; there was only a voice. (Deut.4:11-12)
In 1978 Christian biblical archaeologist Ron Wyatt discovered the true Red Sea crossing of the Hebrews in the Gulf of Aqaba at Nuweiba in the Sinai Peninsula. Wyatt also theorized from the biblical account that the true site of Mt. Sinai (Mt Horeb, Exodus 3.1) and Israel's encampment must be near the Nuweiba Red Sea crossing in the surrounding mountains of Midian in Saudi Arabia rather than the traditional Mt Sinai site in the Sinai Peninsula. His theory brought him to Jabal al Lawz, a mountain long known by its residents to be the site of God's presence and Israel's encampment. Thus far the evidence at Jebel el Lawz fits the biblical description perfectly.
While some archaeologists consider Ron Wyatt's accomplishments to be nothing but fraud and sensationalism, many have examined the evidence and perceive the truth beyond the personalities and politics of the profession.

Evidence of Scorching of Jabal al Lawz
The top of Jebel el Lawz is scorched black (see above photo). Investigation of the rocks in the scorched area show the granite's natural rock coloration to exist just below the blackened rock surface. Only this mountain peak contains the scorched rock in the entire Saudi Arabian mountain range. The scorching could not occur from a grass or shrub fire, since no vegetation has ever existed in this arid mountainous area.
Evidence of an ancient encampment at Jabal al Lawz
At the base of Jebel el Lawz is evidence of an ancient encampment of an extremely large proportion. Within the encampment lies an alter of large stones with Egyptian animal fertility gods etched upon it. This stone alter is possibly the alter where Aaron placed the idolatrous golden calf for Israel to worship. See images below.
Evidence of the miraculous "Split Rock" at Jabal al Lawz
Documented in Wyatt's visits to to Jebel el Lawz in the 1980s and later by Jim and Penny Caldwell in 1992 is a large rock formation lying within the encampment which shows evidence of it being split in two, with marks in the granite that appear to be channels cut out by water, and in the surrounding area, various depressions that look as though water had pooled up all over the valley at some point in time. This rock formation is probably the rock which Moses struck to provide the million or more Hebrews with drinking water. See photos below.
Documentation of Ron Wyatt's Discovery
Ron Wyatt's family has posted a video documentary of their expeditions to Sinai and Saudi Arabia in search of the historical Red Sea Crossing and Mt Sinai. This video is now posted on You-Tube. See below:
Documenting Dr. Lennart Moller's Expedition at Jabal al Lawz
Dr. Lennart Moller, a research scientist from Sweden followed the footsteps of Wyatt's discovery in 2000 to produce an excellent documentary video and book. Archaeological research is ongoing, with a new documentary due in 2008. Click topics below to view:
The Jabal al Lawz site matches the Biblical Exodus description exactly. No other proposed site for Mt. Sinai comes close to the Biblical account.
This study is linked to many authoritative biblical archaeological websites. These findings, along with the Red Sea crossing evidence, will surely have far reaching effects on Judaic, Christian and Islamic perspectives in the future.
