Foreword by Bob Barney: The story may be hype, but the one thing that this article has right is that this is the real Mt Sinai, not the one that the Christians and Jews think. the Bible is clear that Mt. Sinai is in Arabia, NOT the Sinai (misnamed) pennisula! This has been known for years by true Bible scholars who believe what the Bible says and not tradition! The Apostle Paul is very clear, that Mt. Sinai is located in the land where Ishmael lived: Midian. In Galatians 4:25, the Apostle Paul identifies Mount Sinai as being in Arabia. He writes: “For these are the two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar - for this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children –“ (4:24-25 NKJV, emphasis mine).
Arabia in the Bible is always, without exception, the land of Midian. (Modern Saudi Arabia). Kedar was the son of Ishmael, who intermarried with the Midianites and lived south east of the Dead Sea. "These are their genealogies: the firstborn of Ishmael was Nebaioth, then Kedar" 1 Chronicles 1:29 b Ishmael settled in Shur and the wilderness of Paran: Gen 16:12; 21:21; 25:18
Ezek 27:21 clearly shows that Arabia meant Saudi Arabia: "Arabia and all the princes of Kedar". Kedar was.
Isaiah describes Arabia as including Kedar (Ishmael's son): "The oracle about Arabia. In the thickets of Arabia you must spend the night, O caravans of Dedanites. ... all the splendor of Kedar will terminate" Isaiah 21:13, 16.
So now today's story:
Bible site where ‘God met Moses’ to be BULLDOZED for 'super city' by Saudi Arabia
Bible scholars have claimed there is evidence that suggests the peak Jabal al-Lawz in the Middle Eastern kingdom is actually Mount Sinai.
The site is a 8,460 foot peak known as the "mountain of almonds", located in north east Saudi Arabia near the border with Jordan.
Moses leads the Israelites to the mountain which is enveloped by fire, smoke and thunder, according to the Book of Exodus in the Bible.
