The Red Sea Crossing
I have visited Egypt and have always been led to believe Mount Sinai is in Egypt. On my visit to various of the places which include travelling along the Suez Canal the supposed map site of Moses of the route which was taken. I have brought some thoughts to this thread and video, through following the scriptures and how knowledge has increased in technology we are more able to establish the truth of where the crossing and exactly where is the true Mount Sinai, after much deliberation of study a startling discovery that it is in fact in Saudi Arabia.

Exodus 14
Now the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 2 “Speak to the children of Israel, that they turn and camp before Pi Hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, opposite Baal Zephon; you shall camp before it by the sea.
Well Worth looking at and closest to what I have been thinking and discussed with others studying and searching. From scripture and study of maps we find the truth.
Israel did not cross the river but the flooded Delta and it will happened again in the future (Isaiah 11:15-16)

There is a new book out THE QUEST FOR THE LOCATION OF THE RED SEA CROSSING, (Nov. 2009, Amazon.com, ISBN-13: 978-1597552455) it has a new route for the Exodus and a new crossing place of the Red Sea. It is based on the belief that Josephus was right and Israel left from the west side of the Nile. All the places names have been found; (1) Succoth = Sokar (Saqqara) (2) Etham = Atium. (3) Migdol = Great Pyramid. (4) Ball-zephon = Sphinx. (5) Pi-hahiroth = Pē hah·khē·roth (pronunciation of Strong’s) Kheraha, Pi-Khiroti, Al-Qāhira. (6) The Sea = Flooded Delta from the seventh plague.

Rabbi Jonathan Ginsburg
From Rameses they went to their first station at Succoth (Ex 12:37; Num 33:5), proceeding next to Etham, at the edge of the wilderness (Ex 13:20). They were then instructed to turn back and to encamp before Pi Hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baal Zephon, so that Pharaoh might be afflicted with the great calamity which God had in store for him (Ex 14:1-4). The sea near which they were instructed to camp is the Red Sea (in Hebrew yam-suph), or "the sea of reeds" (Ex 14:22). Consequently the course the Israelites followed ran from west to east, without reaching a sea: they had to move either northward or southward from the edge of the wilderness, to come to a sea situated in the vicinity of the three above-mentioned places. The sea was crossed miraculously (Ex14:21-30) and from there they went on to the wilderness of Shur, where they failed to find water (Ex 15:22). Next came a three day march in the wilderness identified in Numbers 33:8 as the wilderness of Etham, which they had traversed previously: this indicates that their route had been circular. Their next stop was at Marah, but the water there was bitter (Ex 15:23).

Egyptian historical sources mention neither the Israelites' sojourn in Egypt nor their departure, but some Egyptian documents contain details which may help in elucidating the background of the Exodus. In the Anastasi I papyrus (late 13th century B.C.), a scribe officiating in an Egyptian fortress reported permission being granted to Edomite nomads to cross the border into Egypt with their herds. Concluded without requesting explicit authorization from Pharaoh, this seems to have been normal procedure. The construction of Pithom and Rameses, which is a historical fact, was accomplished under Pharaoh Rameses II, who built the new capital of Pi-Rameses (i.e. House of Rameses). According to Egyptian sources, this place was at the head of two roads. The first one, was the main route to Palestine running northeast to Qantara, from there to ancient Sile, and along the coast to Gaza. The second route to Palestine ran from the Qantir district (where Rameses is located) to the southeast, across semi-desert terrain, lying between the main Palestine road on the north and Wadi Tumilat on the south. This would have brought the Israelites to the region of Tell Maskhute; identified with Succoth, it lies near modern Ismailia, on the west bank of Lake Timsah. As the Israelites were prevented from using the Via Maris, the coastal highway, this was their only way to the wilderness of Sinai (cf Ex 13:18).

Numbers 33:3-15 gives the fullest list of stations on the route of the Exodus. In fact there is no general consensus on this point, and even the location of the "Red Sea" is far from agreed. An early Christian tradition of the 4th century A.D. locates the sea crossing at a site north of the Gulf of Suez, from which a road is mentioned as running southeast to Jebel Musa and Mount Catherine. This may find support in the preference of the wilderness road to the main highway as mentioned above, and would indicate that the Israelites wandered along the western coast of Sinai. It would also coincide with the 11 day trek "from Horeb by the way of Mount Seir unto Kadesh Barnea" (Deut 1:2), which is the actual length of the march from Jebel Musa in southern Sinai to Ain el-Qudeirat with which Kadesh Barnea is identified.

Against this view numerous objections have been raised. The southern part of the Sinai peninsula is stony and barren, and could have offered little food for such great multitudes of people. On the other hand, arable land may be found in the north only. During their wandering in the desert the Israelites ate manna (Ex 16:35), a substance which must have formed on trees. But trees are very rare in the southern part of Sinai, and much more frequent in the north; the other food, quails, which the Israelites ate before their arrival at and on their departure from Horeb (Ex 16:13; Num 11:31-32) is likewise found along the coast in the north, and not in the south. These considerations led to the proposition to identify Mount Sinai with Jebel Hilal south of el-Arish and east of Kadesh Barnea. To these materialistic objections, scholars have added further arguments based on literary grounds. However, none of these is well-founded. The fact remains that the name Paran, so closely connected with the Exodus (Num 13:3, 26; Deut 33:2), by which the whole wilderness of Sinai was named, is still preserved in one of the major wadis in the southern part of the peninsula, where it was crossed by an important west-east road, and where pre-Christian and Christian traditions venerated scared mountains.

No less disputed than the route of the Exodus is its date. Scholars in the 19th century suggested that Thutmosis III was the Pharaoh of the oppression, and that the Exodus took place in the reign of Amenhotep II (c. 1440 B.C.). More scholars, however, prefer a later date, placing the Exodus in the period of the 19th Dynasty, which would make Rameses II the pharaoh of the oppression, and Merneptah the pharaoh of the Exodus. The conquest of Canaan would thus have begun at about 1200 B.C.
