Check it out, it's still black!!!
My dad was reading to me about Abraham and the Isrialites. Then I googled Mt Sinai and check this out!
The Bible itself bears witness to this fact, �...Mount Sinai in Arabia� (Galatians 4:25).
The mountain now believed to be the Biblical Mount Sinai is known on modern maps as Jebel el Lawz. This mountain encloses an area large enough to accommodate millions of people and their flocks and herds.
The mountain�s peak has been blackened. Exodus 19:18 records �And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace.�
The site shows all the evidence of being an encampment for millions of people. The are ancient tent sites, evidence of a vast water supply, and even the altar upon which the Golden Calf was erected.
After Ron Wyatt drew attention to this site in 1984, the Saudi Authorities erected a wire mesh fence around the base, and declared the area as an archaeological site, off limits to unauthorized personnel.
