Archaeological Proof of Red Sea Crossing (Exodus)

Sometimes the Lord works through Nature rather than perform miracles, as archaeological evidences hint about Biblical events.

Moses and the slaves were cornered at the Red Sea. God saved them by parting the waters so they could cross. As soon as they did, the waters returned and drowned the Egyptian army and their chariots.

Geologists posed a theory on how the waters parted during the Red Sea Crossing, arguing that God did not do a spectacular miracle and simply worked through Mother Nature, through a freak natural occurrence. They theorized that massive tectonic shifts triggered the flow of water from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea (red arrows below), exposing vast areas of the Gulf of Aqaba, where the Israelites were theorized to have crossed to freedom. The water might have flowed back quickly after the Israelites have crossed, drowning the Egyptians.

The geologists theorized that even the tiny Dead Sea northeast of the crossing could also have emptied into the Mediterranean, but never flowed back. Hence, today, the Dead Sea is below sea level and extremely salty because it has slowly dried up through the centuries.

Ron Wyatt, a curator of a museum of ancient history, believed the jump-off point of the crossing was at Nuweiba Beach on the west side of the Gulf of Aqaba. This Gulf is connected to the Red Sea as an extension. He discovered a shallow underwater bridge connecting Nuweiba Beach in the west to the east side of the Gulf.

Wyatt sent scuba divers to scour the underwater land bridge, the theorized path of the crossing. There he discovered the evidence of the century, human skulls and bones, an ancient golden chariot wheel, and remnants of chariots. He suspected that the wheel was made of gold because it was not corroded by corals or barnacles. True enough, it was made of gold. The wheel was similar to the golden wheel found in the tomb of the infamous Pharaoh Tutkankhamen, now in a London museum.

The geologists had a second simpler theory – that low tide regularly exposed the shallow land bridge during ancient times. Such vast exposure of the sea was photographed by modern-day researchers.

Phoenician and Hebrew hieroglyphics on ancient pillars are intact today on both sides of the crossing. King Solomon was said to have built these monuments.
