The Parting of the Red Sea

I received this forwarded to me today, it is interesting, I don’t know the source of this information though.

Chariot Wheels found at the bottom of  the Red Sea — See pictures below and the route.wheel1

You will be surprised to see proof of  Pharaoh’s chariot and bones of horses and men found in the Red Sea . Evidence of the crossing of the Red Sea .. Pharaoh’s drowned army.

Confirmation of the actual Exodus route has come from divers finding coral-encrusted bones and chariot remains in the Gulf of Aqaba . ONE of the most dramatic records of Divine intervention in history is the account of the Hebrews’ exodus from Egypt .

The subsequent drowning of the entire map1Egyptian army in the Red Sea was not an insignificant event, and confirmation of this event is compelling evidence that the Biblical narrative is truly authentic.  Over the years, many divers have searched the Gulf of Suezin vain for artifacts to verify the Biblical account.  But carefully following the Biblical and historical records of the Exodus brings you to Nuweiba, a large beach in the Gulf of Aqaba , as Ron Wyatt discovered in 1978.

Repeated dives in depths ranging from wheel260 to 200 feet deep (18m to 60m), over a stretch of almost 2.5 km, has shown that the chariot parts are scattered across the sea bed.  Artifacts found include wheels, chariot bodies, as well as human and horse bones.  Divers have located on the Saudi coastline opposite Nuweiba as well
Since 1987, Ron Wyatt found three  four-spoke gilded chariot wheels. Coral does not grow on gold, hence the shape has remained very distinct, although the wood inside the gold veneer has disintegrated making them too fragile to move.

The hope for future expeditions is to explore the deeper waters with remote cameras or mini-subs. (ABOVE GILDED CHARIOT WHEEL – Mute witness to the miracle of the crossing of the Red Sea by the Hebrews 3,500 years ago. Found with a metal detector. Coral-encrusted chariot wheel, filmed off the Saudi coastline, matches chariot wheels found in Tutankhamen’s tomb.

Mineralizedbones bone, one of many found at the crossing site. This one tested by the Department of Osteology at Stockholm University , was found to be a human femur, from the right leg of a 165-170cm tall man. It is essentially ‘fossilized, ‘ i.e., replaced by minerals and coral, hence cannot be dated by radiocarbon methods, although this specimen was obviously from antiquity. Chariot wheel and axle covered with coral and up-ended.  Exodus 14:25 ‘And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily…’ Solomon’s memorial pillars.
When Ron Wyatt first visited Nuweiba in 1978, he found a Phoenician pole style column lying in the water.  Unfortunately the inscriptions had been eroded away, hence the column’s importance was not understood until 1984 when a second granite column was found on the Saudi coastline opposite —  identical to the first, except on this one the inscription was still intact!

In Phoenician letters (Archaic Hebrew), it contained the words:  Mizraim (Egypt ); Solomon; Edom ; death; Pharaoh; Moses; and Yahweh, indicating that King Solomon had set up these columns as a memorial  to the miracle of the crossing of the sea.   Saudi Arabia does not admit tourists, and perhaps fearing unauthorized visitors, the Saudi Authorities have since removed this column, and replaced it with a flag marker where it once stood.

The Gulf of Aqabais very deep, in places over a mile (1,600m) deep.  Even with the sea dried up, walking across would be difficult due to the steep grade down the sides.  But there is one spot where if the water were removed, it would be an easy descent for people and animals.  This is the  line between Nuweiba and the opposite shore in Saudi Arabia .

Depth-sounding expeditions have revealed a smooth, gentle slope descending from Nuweiba out into the Gulf.  This shows up almost like a pathway on depth-recording equipment, confirming it’s Biblical description, ‘…a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters.’ (Isaiah 43:16)
The Bible writers frequently refer to the miracle of the Red Sea crossing, for it was an event which finds no equal in history.  The Hebrew prophets describe the sea at the crossing site as ‘…the waters of the great deep…the depths of the sea…’ (Isaiah 51:10) .

Knowing the exact spot to which the Bible writers were referring, what is the depth there?  The distance between Nuweiba and where artifacts have been found on Saudi coast is about 18km (11 miles).

Along this line, the deepest point is about 800m (2,600 feet).  No wonder that Inspired writers of the Bible described it as the mighty waters.  And no wonder that not a single Egyptian survived when the water collapsed in upon them.  ( Above right NUWEIBA BEACH- the spot where the crossing began)

  1. WOW, Vic! That is an awesome report! Doesn’t it give you goosebumps too though when reading it as you realize the words in the Bible are what we have been taught to be all along – TRUE!

  2. Most interesting! Thanks for bringing the discovery to our attention.

  3. Wow..that is totally cool!
    I wonder what happened….

  4. This is fascinating. Have you seen any of the work by the Creation Research Institute? They have some really great videos about the search for Noah’s Ark, among other things. I’m pretty sure there’s a website somewhere…

  5. You know the sceptics will say that was simply a dumping ground for old parts and dead bodies. Yep, hauled them out on a boat and chucked them over the side.

    Yeah, right. LOL!

    Good post Vic.

  6. Wow, too cool, very interesting.
