THEY FOUND JESUS' CRUCIFIXION SITE, TOMB, AND THE ARK OF THE COVENANT BURIED UNDER A TRASH PILE IN JERUSALEM.
In 1978 Ron Wyatt an amateur archaeologist without any formal training, confounded those who disbelieve the historical accuracy of the Bible, by discovering the true location of the “Exodus Red Sea Crossing, in the Gulf of Aqaba at Nuweiba, Sinai Peninsala, and the real Mt. Sinai in Midian.
When Ron started to look for the Red Sea crossing site, he hired an air plane to help him locate the site where Moses brought the children of Israel across the Red Sea. He asked the pilot, “Where is there a place where you can get through the Mountains to the Gulf of Aqaba?” And the pilot flew them down to the Nuweiba area where there is a huge 5 mile long beach and he showed them where the children of Israel made their way through the mountains along a dried river bed to the Red Sea. The full name of the beach is called “Nuwayba’ al Muzayyinah” which translated means “Waters of Moses Opening.”
The following year, Ron and his two sons went scuba diving at that site and they found a large column in the water there; and they immediately suspected that the column had marked the spot where the Israelite's had crossed the Red Sea, but someone had pushed it over and it was now lying flat in the water. So they went scuba diving strait out from there and they found the remains of chariot wheels in the water there on their first dive; and by confirming the Red Sea crossing site Ron was then able to conclude without a doubt that the real Mount Sinai must be over in Saudi Arabia in Median. A place called “Jabel el Lawz” Which translated means “The Mountain of the Laws.” This is exactly where the Apostle Paul says Mt. Sinai is in Galatians 4:25, “For this Agar is Mount Sinai in Arabia.”
Josephus a first century Historian wrote. “Mount Sinai is the highest of the mountains in the region of the City of Median.” Mount Sinai towers 8,000 ft. above the desert floor; and the mountain is easy to spot because the whole top of the mountain where Moses received the Ten Commandments from God is burnt black.
“And Mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire; and the smoke there of ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.”
When Pharaoh heard that Moses had killed one of his soldiers who was beating a Hebrew slave, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh and dwelt in the land of Midian. It was 40 years later in Midian where the Angel of the Lord “Jesus Christ” appeared to Moses in a Burning Bush.
Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian; and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.
“And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush and he looked, and behold the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.” …
And he said, “I Am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God. And the Lord said, “I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; and I Am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of the land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey.
God then told Moses that “When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.” God told Moses to bring the people out of Egypt to Mount Sinai in Midian.
And Moses said to God, behold when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? What shall I say to them? And God said to Moses, “I AM THAT I AM; and he said, “Thus shall thou say to the children of Israel, I AM has sent me to you.”
The authenticity of Ron Wyatt’s claim of finding the Red Sea Crossing has been validated by a large red granite pillar with inscriptions on it which were erected by King Solomon on both the Sinai and Saudi Arabian sides of the Red Sea. The inscription reads, Pharaoh, Mizraim (Egypt) Moses, death, water, Yahweh, Solomon, Edom.
And by the discovery of the remains of ancient Egyptian army chariots scattered over a mile and a half lying at the bottom of an underwater land bridge connecting Sinai to Saudi Arabia suggesting that a large army must have perished on the site in a dramatic way, which corroborates the biblical account of how the Egyptian army was destroyed by the returning waters that Moses had parted.
Also the fact that these dried up river beds winding through the mountains had carried such large amounts of desert dust, mud, and sand washed down from the mountains by seasonal rainfall, that it had filled in the Gulf of Aqaba creating a natural flat sand bar land bridge from one side of the Red Sea to the other, with the water dropping down to over 1500 m. deep on either side of this bridge. Even with the waters parted it would have been nearly impossible for the Israelite's with their flocks and herds to climb down and then back up the other side of the Red Sea, had this land bridge not been there.
The depth of the water and the steep canyon walls would have made it impossible for a crossing to have taken place anywhere else with the exception of the shallow land bridge at Nuweiba. If the waters were to be removed, it would still be impossible to cross this chasm which is as deep and as wide as the Grand Canyon in Arizona.
There is no question in my mind that Rod Wyatt has found the exact location of the Red Sea Crossing. Nowhere else along the Red Sea does a land bridge like this exist; plus the fact that so many coral encrusted chariot wheels along with fossilized human and horse bones have been recovered, all these things prove to me that the story is true.
The Bible says that Pharaoh took 600 of his chosen chariots along with all the chariots of Egypt and pursued after the children of Israel.
“And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen. And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the Lord looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians; And took off their chariot wheels, that they drove them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the Lord fights for them against the Egyptians.
In 1988, Ron found a four spooked gold chariot wheel which looked almost perfect. The reason this wheel was so well preserved is that coral does not grow on gold. But the wood inside the gold "veneer" was deteriorated, which made it very fragile and for this reason Rod did not attempt to retrieve it from the water. He found it on the Egyptian side of the Gulf of Aqaba close to the shore of the Red Sea but it was so fragile that it would fall apart if he tried to remove it.
Chariot wheels had been found on both sides of the Red Sea, but Pharaoh would have been riding in the rear of his army, with the main force of his army in front of him for protection. This could be the actual wheel from Pharaoh’s chariot. This is a picture of Pharaoh’s chariot with 4 spoke wheels.
And the Lord said unto Moses, “Stretch out thin hand over the sea that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. And the waters returned, and covered the chariots and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them."
Ron Wyatt and his sons had returned to the Middle East to get some of the chariot wheels out of the bottom of the Red Sea. Ron and his sons were diving at a depth of about 30 ft. deep and he thought that the water would filter out the sun's harmful rays; however this was not the case and as a result his legs and feet became so painfully sunburn that he could not get his diving equipment and fins on. Unable to dive anymore, and with no motel in the area, Ron and his sons had no choice but to return to Jerusalem to do some sightseeing for a few days while they wait until their flight from Tel Aviv left for the US.
And during this time Ron met than archeologist from the Israeli Antiquities Authority who was in charge of the Jerusalem area, and he told Ron that he had been doing some digging along the Scull Mountain cliff face, and he invited Ron to see the site saying; “How about coming along with me, and have a look at it, and see what you think!”
JEREMIAH'S GROTTO AND THE ARK OF THE COVENANT
So in August of 1978, Ron was walking along the Calvary Escarpment in the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem, with a man from the local Israeli Antiquities Authority talking about Roman antiquities, when suddenly without warning Ron's left hand pointed at a hole in the rock where there was pile of garbage and two dead cats, and his mouth said, “That’s Jeremiah’s Grotto and the Ark of the Covenant is in their!”
Both of the men were totally confounded by the words that had just come uncontrollably out of Ron’s mouth. Even though Ron had said this, he really had no idea why the Ark of the Covenant would be in that place; and the man from the Israeli Antiquities Authority immediately reacted quite strangely also by saying; “That’s wonderful. We’ll let you excavate there, provide your permits, put you up in a place to stay, furnish your meals and wash your cloths!”
