New archaeological discoveries of biblical events which occured over 3500 years ago have been coming to light fast and furious. It seems that God, in these "last days" before Jesus' return, wants all of humanity to see these ancient biblical evidences. In recent years, a number of bible researchers and amateur archaeologists have discovered overwhelming evidence that the true location of Mount Sinai is in Saudi Arabia (out of Egypt in "Midian" according to the bible), at a mountain called Jebal al Lawz by local Bedouins. In complete alignment with scripture, these discoveries include: Red Sea crossing at Nuweiba beach, undersea chariot parts and human bones, Springs of Elim, Mt. Sinai a granite peak burned to obsidian glass, Elijah's cave, split rock of Moses, reservoir of water with ancient wells and tent circles, Aaron's Altar of the Golden Calf with petroglyphs, Moses' Altar at the base of the mountain, 12 stone pillars for the 12 tribes of Israel, cedar bush, Almond trees, quail, scores of Hebrew petroglyphs. For more information on these discoveries, see the websites and books written by Lennart Moller, Dr. Sung Hak Kim, Jim & Penny Caldwell, Robert Cornuke & Larry Williams, Ron Wyatt. Another fascinating discovery from Google Earth satellite photos is what looks like a massive skeleton about a mile from the base of Jebal al Lawz - could this be the 'leviathan' spoken of in Job 41 and Psalm 74:14 ?
"It was you who crushed the heads of Leviathan and gave it as food to the creatures of the desert."
MOUNT SINAI. The actual 8,465 ft. high mountain in Midian (called Jebal al Lawz in Arabic) where God descended in an inferno of fire, and spoke the Ten Commandments to the Israelites. Note the granite rock is burned black on the peak. (Ex. 19:16 - 20:20)
ALTAR OF MOSES. The Altar Moses built at the base of the mountain out of uncut stones, as God told him to, where the seventy elders of Israel were to worship. (Ex. 24:4)
TWELVE STONE PILLARS. Moses erected 12 stone pillars for the 12 tribes of Israel at the base of the mountain next to the Altar site God told him to build. (Ex. 24:4)
ALTAR OF THE GOLDEN CALF. The Altar that Aaron built for the Israelites, melting down their gold, and turning it into a golden calf. The Altar was built of uncut stones, and still has Egyptian-style cow petroglyphs on it to this day. (Ex. 32:2-5)
SPLIT ROCK. The rock that Moses struck with his staff to provide water for the approximately 1.2 million Israelites. This rock is at the base of Mt. Horeb, and shows signs of a massive fount of water, markings on the stones of water erosion, and is about five stories tall. (Ex. 17:6-7)
GRINDING STONES & RELICS. These ancient peices of pottery, grinding stones and vases were found by Dr. Kim in his travels around Jebal al Lawz and Midian, Northern Saudi Arabia.
CAVE OF ELIJAH. The view from inside the cave on Mt. Horeb looking out over the river of water from the split rock into the plain below, where the 1.2 million Israeiltes camped. This is the cave where Elijah spent the night after running from Jezebel, and God spoke to him in a gentle whisper. (1 KI. 19:9)
LOCATION OF TRUE MOUNT SINAI. Known as "Jebal al Lawz" by the local bedouins, the true Mt. Sinai is out of Egypt, in Midian, which is Saudi Arabia. (Ex. 2:15)
NUWEIBA BEACH. Located on the Egyptian side of the Red Sea, this was the location where the Israelites were hemmed in by mountains and the sea, with Pharoah and his army chasing them. (Ex. 14:1-2)
COLUMNS AT RED SEA CROSSING. It is believed that the two colomns on Nuweiba beach in Egypt, and on the Arabian side - were set to mark the Red Sea crossing site. Since their discovery by Ron Wyatt, authorities have removed them. (Ex. 14:16)
RED SEA CHARIOT WHEEL. Chariot wheel encased in gold veneer visible on the Red Sea floor. Other coral-encrusted chariot wheels and human remains were discovered. (Ex. 14:23-28)
JETHRO'S CAVE. When Moses fled from Pharoah he went to live in Midian (Arabia), where he met Zipporah at a well and married her. Near the town of Al Bad is the Cave of Zipporah's father Jethro, the Well of Moses is nearby. (Ex. 2:15-21)
ELIM. Close to the town of Al Bad, is the 70 palm trees and 12 springs of Elim, which refreshed Moses and the Israelites as they neared the Mt. Sinai encampment. (Ex. 15:27)
MT. HOREB & ELIJAH'S CAVE. The peak of Mt. Horeb at about 8,000 foot elevation, located next to Mt. Sinai. Notice the small black dot in the photo - that is Elijah's Cave (see photo at right for the view from inside the cave).
Split Rock Research
From 1992 - 2004, while Jim had special permission to work in the old and gas industry in Saudi Arabia, Jim and Penny made fifteen trips out into the regions surrounding Jebel al Lawz. Though they had to remain anonymous at the time, it was their secret research and evidence that began filtering out into books, videos, and internet websites all throughout the 1990's. Backpacking their way into restricted areas and behind forbidden fences which at times led to arrest at gunpoint, their knowledge of the lay of the land is perhaps better than any. Their accomplishments include arduous climbs to the top of both of the highest peaks in the region, Jebel Maqla and Jebel Lawz, which they believe to be Mt. Sinai and Mt. Horeb, respectively. Among their personal discoveries are the Split Rock at Horeb, the footprint rock carvings believed to be related to the children of Israel, the graveyard at Sinai, a bitter spring fountain head they believe to be Marah, and a desert oasis with twelve wells that appears to be the Biblical Elim. Beside these, the Caldwell's have discovered and filmed flocks of quail, groves of almond trees, and a very interesting candidate for the burning bush. From scuba diving in the Gulf of Aqaba on numerous occasions to quite literally traversing the Saudi Kingdom in its entirety in an effort to trace the pathway of what they theorize to be a deep southern Israeli wandering, the Caldwell's have a particularly unique perspective on the Exodus and its application to the Arabian Peninsula. Having completed their first book, "The God of the Mountain", two more are in the works along with various film projects that will detail heretofore unreleased and startling possibilities surrounding the consequences of placing Mt. Sinai in Arabia. See below for videos of Jim and Penny Caldwell's trips and examination of the Exodus site, Jebal al Lawz.

Wyatt Archaeological Research
Dr. Sung Hak Kim is a South Korean medical doctor who was personal physician to Saudi Prince H.R.H Prince Majed Bin Abdul Aziz, Governor of Mecca for 16 years. Dr. Kim is a Christian, and he spent years researching the Exodus relics and evidence at Jebal al Lawz in Saudi Arabia. Click here for an interview of Dr. Kim and his discoveries of the Exodus site Mt. Sinai and Mt. Horeb in Saudi Arabia.
In 1987, Ron Wyatt went diving off Nuweiba Beach at the Red Sea crossing site, and found a gentle underwater land bridge, chariot wheels and human bones; and across the Red Sea on the Arabian side, he also discovered Jebal al Lawz with the Altar of the Golden Calf, Elijah's Cave, the Split Rock, Moses' Altar at the Base of the Mountain, the Boundary Markers at the base of the mountain, and Mt. Sinai with it's blackened peak. See videos below for Ron's 1978 - 1985 discoveries of the Red Sea crossing site of Exodus, and the Mountain of God, Jebal al Lawz. Here is a Google Earth satellite view of the discoveries of Ron Wyatt.
