Catherine’s built by Emperor Justinian in the middle of the sixth century AD (Tsafrir 199).
It may come as a surprise to most people, but scholars have identified 13 different sites as the “real” Mount Sinai (Har-el 1983:2). Charles Beke suggested Mount Baggir, to the NE of the Gulf of Akaba, as the true location of Mt. Sinai / Horeb with Jebel al-Manifa, near Wadi al-Hrob, 20 kilometers north of ‘Ajnuna (1926: 269, 297).
Fasold claims this device can detect various types of metal under the ground.
When one of Samran’s workers discovered “a bracelet that glittered for all the world like the purest of gold” (Blum 1998: 58), they were arrested and charged with “robbing Saudi Arabia of its wealth from antiquity” which they claimed was a capital offense (Cornuke and Halbrook 2000: 218).
The Egyptians never occupied that mining district with a garrison, but only sent expeditions; at the most these were in alternate years, and in the time of Merenptah only once in many years (Petrie 1906: 206).
It is also true that there were Egyptian soldiers garrisoned in fortresses in Sinai.
Violators are subject to penalties stipulated in the antiquities regulations passed by royal decree no. The thesis of these books and video is that the real Mount Sinai is located at Jebel el-Lawz in Saudi Arabia, and the gold that the Israelites took from the Egyptians is in “them thar hills! Mount Sinai is in the Sinai Peninsula right where the Bible places it. Sinai at Jebel el-Lawz is that it does not meet the Biblical criteria for the site.
These claims are based on three false assumptions and a misunderstanding of the archaeological remains that they observed.
Second, the false assumptions by the proponents of Jebel al-Lawz will be disputed. Fourth, the archaeological evidence will be examined... This article will examine four aspects of the question regarding whether or not Mt. First, the credibility of the claims will be questioned.As they tried to get back across the border they were captured, their film confiscated, and were jailed for 78 days as Israeli spies. In April 1985, Wyatt returned to Saudi Arabia legally under the patronage of a certain Mr. This time he had a contract with Samran to split the take on any “commercial minerals” found by them on their treasure hunt (Fasold 1993b: 4-6; Blum 1998: 47).To help locate the gold, Wyatt convinced David Fasold, with his “molecular frequency generator” (MFG), into joining their expedition to search for the “gold of Exodus” (Blum 1998: 49-51).When they were finally released, all their film and notes were confiscated, and they were made to promise they would never return to Saudi Arabia and never publish or talk about their findings (Blum 1998: 59; Williams 1990: 25).Upon his return, Fasold told Jim Irwin, the Apollo 15 astronaut who walked on the moon. Part of his material is reproduced in Williams’ book (1990: 25, 209-211) as well as his own newsletters (1993a; 1993b).
