    Awesome Joel, I love it!

    I remember thinking, “That’s why Paul went to Arabia before Jerusalem.” Gal 1v16+17. It was the place of his Father’s. I do strongly believe it may well be the place where he was caught up to heaven.

    Either it’s real, or it’s the worlds biggest hoax. (Have no idea how they would burn that mount)

    Hello Joel.
    I’d like to know your thoughts on the following, please:

    If ‘Mountains’ are kingdoms and their are 7 Kingdoms in Arabia; 1. Saudi, 2. Kuwait, 3.Qatar, 4.Bahrain, 5.Yemen, 6.Oman and 7.U.A.E, could the ten horns be the satellite Arab states of Syria, Iraq, Egypt etc?

    There are 22 countries/states in the Arab league.
    7 (heads) + 10 (horns) = 17.
    22 – 17 = 5 (have fallen?)

    sorry, spelt ‘their’ wrong.

    The mountain is not “burnt” per se. This was wrongly suggested in the past likely due to it’s distinct appearance. The rocks on Sinai are dark blue, green, brown, and black. It is basalt. There is much of this in the area. That said, there is so much to the site, which, when all put together is beyond compelling, that indeed, if it is not the site, then the coincidences are so abundant that the Lord would have to very deliberately be punking us all. More to come…

    Wow! Now, THIS is news and good news at that! So you are going to link the Exodus pilgrimage to the Return of Jesus in a forthcoming book from Scripture because of the Sinai trip???? Well, that is indeed a first that no one has done before! Looking forward to it, Joel.

    Yeah, you got a preview of the sermon that is the capstone of the book.

    You are correct Joel, the word I actually recall is ‘melted’
    And yes, I remember that it was said that there was a patch of it by the split rock.

    Can’t count how many times I watched with my Bible “The Exodus.” It made the book of Exodus come alive.
    Looking forward to what’s to come.

    Oh, I did Joel? Is it when I saw you in town last month for Wed. night Bible study? Cool! It was fascinating, and if the Chairman of the Elder Board learned something he had not thought about before, I can tell you are headed for the Best Seller List again in the future. But, really, I had no doubt. 🙂

    Joel! Excellent! and it makes my heart sing with joy and makes me feel closer to my savior, while listening to you I could feel the Holy Spirit and I just know you are onto something. I can’t wait for the book and the photos of Moses parting the Red Sea, God has really blessed you and you are bringing his blessings to us I just feel so close to the God of Moses and Abraham. Thank You! I have been listening to some youtube things from Ron Wyatt and do you think he may have really found the Ark of the Covenant? I read what his wife had wrote about it and it does seem feasible what do you think?

    Blessings Kaye

    Hey Joel,
    I’m super excited for this. I’ve been watching with anticipation like you the changes taking place in Saudi Arabia. The Lord’s Name will be lifted up over this if what you sense is true and will develop in the next few years. When I first heard about your trip I had a sense this was where you were going. I’ve always had trouble with the Sinai Peninsula location. God bless you and the many team members, and of course, To God be the glory. Let’s pray this through.

    On a side note; could this be part of the fire that stirs the hearts of the Jewish people as they begin to realize their own lost heritage? They will begin to yearn to see their temple again. Then right about then two strangers will come on the scene and begin to preach…
    One man would have spent quiet hours on that mountain of God.
    Listening to the still small voice from that cave mouth.
    I’m so jealous! 🙂
    Maybe the second witness is the man who hid himself in the cleft of a rock as the glory of God passed by, leaving his face full from the Shekinah.
    Now I’m more jealous.
    I’m in awe just thinking about it.

    Maybe the two witnesses will return before the temple is built but while this Sinai project is attracting tens of thousands of people to the region.
    Can you imagine?
    Very exciting times in the next few years.

    Doug Completely agree! I’m jealous too and very excited about what the Lord is doing right now.

    Joel, I’ve been praying for your trip for a while now, and now I’m thanking God for your success! I was wondering, if you are willing to spill the beans, did any of the carvings, especially of the calves contain anything cherub/living creature related? Wings, hands of a man, jewels, etc. I’ve been reading Gods and Thrones and was wondering if you found any evidence for his theory on the origin of Satan.

    Hi Joel,
    In a somewhat related matter. Bob Curnuke wrote a very controversial book “Temple” in 2014. I’ve read the first 2 chapters (free kindle sample) as well as watched at least a couple of videos in which Bob outlines some of his main points. I found what I did read and watch quite interesting. I think Bob expands on Dr. Martin’s work. I should probably finish reading the book.myself. I know that Bob Cornuke has been attacked by some for his work on Mt. Sinai as well as the Temple Mount. Bob seems like a stand up guy. I thought some of the attacks bordered on malicious myself. I’m really disappointed in one particular ministry that was the source of some of these attacks. I don’t want to obfuscate the Mt. Sinai issue with the Temple Mount Issue. I haven’t taken the time to read all the rebuttals for his work on the Temple Mount. There may be some valid issues that Bob has not considered. Just wondering if maybe you’ve read Temple? And if so, do you have an opinion or would you recommend that I finish reading the book?

    Hope you don’t think I’m being rude, but I noticed you mentioned the twelve pillars in a picture on your Twitter page, I realise BoB and Larry pointed to these too.

    On his vid below, Mr Wyatt talks about a column they found on the beach by the red sea at Nuweiba..( 28:32 mins in)
    There was an exact same column on the opposite side of the crossing
    (41:15 in) which was removed by the Saudis.

    Both columns look like the remains of one in your picture. Mr Wyatt said he believed they were placed at either side of the sea, and at the mount by later kings to commemorate the crossing.

    At 1 hour 12 minutes 56 seconds,Mr Wyatt points to the remains of 12 larger boulders also at the foot of the mount .

    It’s all very amazing, I do think that these three columns being commemorative is very feasible..

    You mentioned Jim and Penny Caldwell. Have you been in contact with them, or do you plan to in the future? Just this evening Michael Rood’s Shabbat Night Live featured Michael’s recent visit with the Caldwells. This evening’s program was pre-record, so perhaps it was recorded before your trip, or overlapped with it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__-toC7UpK8

    I am looking forward to future episodes on this. Truly this must be one of the most significant archeological discoveries, an undeniable validation of the Bible’s record. Our former pastor, who is Jewish, used to say that every turn of the archaeologist’s spade confirms the Scriptures. It is true!

    Hi Joel,

    I have never set foot in Jebel al Lawz and I have no doubts that if I had, like you, it could have an impact on my present thinking. A few years ago I read an article by Gordon Franz in which he explained why he didn’t believe that it was the true site.

    One of the arguments that struck me was

    Another major problem for the Jebel el-Lawz site is the statement by Moses that Mt. Horeb (another name for Mt. Sinai) is “eleven days journey from Kadesh Barnea” (Deut. 1:2). It would be impossible to march more than 2 million Israelites through the difficult terrain from Jebel el-Lawz to Kadesh Barnea in the allotted time. (apparently the distance is about 350 miles.)
    I hope you will address that in your movie.

    There are far more problems with Gordan Franz’s arguments against al-Lawz. He has discredited himself in my opinion by making some of the arguments he has made. That said. It is very unlikely that there were two million in the Exodus.

  • Yves Peloquin
    Posted at 05:48h, 23 May

    According Num 1:46, on the second year of the Exodus, there was 603,550 men of more than 20 years old that were able to serve in the army. Not counting the children, the woman and the tribe of Levi I would say that on the contrary it is very likely that they were two millions.

  • Joel
    Posted at 08:46h, 23 May

    The word for “thousand” (heb: èleph) there has a wide range of lexical options, including something akin to, “men of fighting age.” That would change the total number dramatically. This is a hotly contested matter within Exodus scholarship. In my opinion, there were more likely about forty thousand total people in the Exodus.

    Joel… This statement is fascinating to me!

    “The word for “thousand” (heb: èleph) there has a wide range of lexical options, including something akin to, “men of fighting age.” That would change the total number dramatically. This is a hotly contested matter within Exodus scholarship. In my opinion, there were more likely about forty thousand total people in the Exodus.”

    I’ve often struggled with understanding how Moses was only the great grandson of Levi yet there were apparently 600,000 men coming from the Exodus. Maybe they all had multiple wives and tons of children I thought, or maybe they were counting their servants and slaves.. I guess the understanding of the word eleph you suggested could apply to other locations in the Tanach? Are there other resources where this understanding could be explored or further explained?
