Sinai located in Arabia
mountain peak scorched by Supernatural heat
have traditionally placed Mt Sinai in what is today referred to as
the Sinai Peninsular. Every year pilgrims flock to that mountain.
But having located the Red Sea crossing site in the Gulf of Aqaba,
it becomes obvious that Mt. Sinai must be in Saudi Arabia. The
Bible itself bears witness to this fact, "...Mount Sinai in
Arabia" (Galatians 4:25).
The mountain now
believed to be the Biblical Mount Sinai is known on modern maps as
Jebel el Lawz. This mountain encloses an area large enough to
accommodate millions of people and their flocks and herds. The
mountain's peak has been blackened. Exodus 19:18 records "And
mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended
upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a
The site shows all the evidence of
being an encampment for millions of people. The are ancient tent
sites, evidence of a vast water supply, and even the altar upon
which the Golden Calf was erected. After Ron Wyatt drew attention
to this site in 1984, the Saudi Authorities erected a wire mesh
fence around the base, and declared the area as an archaeological
site, off limits to unauthorized personnel. (below)
the base of Jebel el Lawz is a large altar, with Egyptian Apis
bulls, or calves, inscribed onto it.
Ron Wyatt showed this altar to an archaeologist from Rejhard
University, he immediately recognised the significance of it.
There is no other site like it in Saudi Arabia. The story of the
Golden Calf, in chapter 32 of Exodus, is well known, and now at
last the actual altar has been found. However until the Saudi
Authorities allow access to foreigners, viewing the site is
extremely difficult. Yet despite this, some have successfully done
from the rock
evidence of another Biblical miracle is still standing today!
At the Lord's command, Moses smote what the Bible
refers to as "the rock" in Horeb. Fresh water gushed
forth, supplying the Hebrews, and their flocks for the two years
they encamped there. Man-made channels run out from the giant rock
into the plain, where the Hebrews would have been encamped,
precisely what one would expect to find.(The Rock in Horeb - The
close-up reveals the significant water erosion.)
Wyatt: The Scientific approach
work which Ron was led to accomplish, confirming the validity of
the Word of God, is touching an ever growing number of lives.
Ron Wyatt was not a professional archaeologist. He was
an anaesthetist by profession. He began his personal research into
ancient history, the sciences and the Bible as a young man,
motivated by his own curiosity.
In 1977 Ron began
field work in Turkey. In 1978 he began work in Egypt, and in 1979,
Israel. At first his "team" consisted of himself and his
two teenaged sons, and later, other interested individuals offered
their assistance. At the time of his death in August of 1999, Ron
had made over 120 trips to the Middle East. Ron funded most of his
work himself. Over the years, several individuals who believed in
his work also provided some financial assistance. His work was
based on his profound belief in the total accuracy of the Biblical
account, and on this basis, his general policy was to share these
evidences with "those who ask."
Ron Wyatt's "Discoveries" testify to the veracity of the
Biblical narrative, they are quite controversial in both the
scientific and scholarly communities. As a result, Ron never
looked to scientists or scholars to "confirm" them. He
employed scientific testing, then presented the evidence from
those tests and the testimony of experts as to the results. He
then presented the body of evidence, biblical, historical,
archaeological and scientific, in the belief that each individual
was capable of making their own decision.
Wyatt passed away on the 4th of August, 1999. He is greatly missed
by those who knew and worked with him. Many of these individuals
are now carrying on the work Ron began for the LORD.
