Analyzing and dating geological specimens

The paper discusses the third aspect, the archaeological evidence, in more detail. Whatever one may think of Ron Wyatt’s “discoveries,” he should be given full credit for this discovery.The questions dealt with include: 1) Are the archaeological remains that were observed by the proponents of Jebel al-Lawz credible? The final section of this paper deals with the location of the Red Sea crossing. However, I would like to call your attention to a recent book examining the claims of Ron Wyatt.Was it in the Gulf of Akaba / Eilat or the Gulf of Suez? It is entitled , by two SDA researchers, Russell and Colin Standish. This book is a careful, meticulous, in-depth study of Ron Wyatt’s claims.

Each time it is used of a specific geo-political entity, a kingdom, nation or tribal area. In my article, I suggested that Teman was at or near Kuntillet ‘Ajrud, Mt.

This paper discusses the first two aspects briefly because they have already been dealt with in the Fall 2000 issue of (Franz 201-113).

However, they fail to point out that one of the reasons Cross and “Continental scholars” hold to this view is their adherence to the Documentary Hypothesis (JEDP). Sinai is still in Midian (Letter from Cross, May 21, 2001). Sinai) when Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, visits them. Perhaps some day Biblical scholars might catch up with the archaeological world!

Verse 27 says, “Then Moses let his father-in-law depart [from Mt. THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL EVIDENCE There are at least eight pieces of archaeological or geographical evidence that the proponents of Jebel al-Lawz use to support their idea.

Nadav Na’aman, a professor of Bible geography at Tel Aviv University, made an important point in an article on the “Brook of Egypt”. 3:2; ), which is implied as going from the Jabbok to Mt. In the first century AD, based on the prior use by Herodotus, Pliny and Strabo, Arabia extended from the Persian Gulf to the Nile Delta, thus including the Sinai Peninsula in Arabia. Sinai in the Sinai Peninsula because the Sinai Peninsula was part of Arabia of his day. Cross and Mike Heiser’s suggestion (made at the NEAS meeting in 1998) that Mt.

He states, “Traditionally, in the eyes of the Egyptians the Nile or the Isthmus fringes were considered to be their northern boundary, the Sinai peninsula being regarded as part of Asia. Sinai was outside the Sinai Peninsula based on three passages from the Bible, Deut.
