Lecture by James Hoffmeier and Stephen Moshier
Over the past 10-15 years there have been a number of sensational ideas advanced for where and how the Red Sea crossing occurred as the Hebrews deparated Egypt and where Mt. Sinai is located. Many of these are known from popular TV programs on the History, Learning, Discovery and National Channels. Some of these various theories, such as that the Israelites crossed the Gulf of Aqaba and landed in Saudi Arabia where Mt. Sinai is located, will be examined biblically and archaeologically (Hoffmeier) and geologically (Moshier). Was Mt. Sinai a volcano? Is there any basis for identifying Mt. Sinai with the traditional site, Gebel Musa? These and other questions will be treated, using film clips, slides and maps.
