Scientists find convincing evidence of the story “Moses divided the sea”
The story of Moses splitting the sea in two so that the Jewish group could cross, then drowning all the Egyptian soldiers, is a famous miracle in the Catholic Bible.
The story of Saint Moses dividing the sea
In the world today, the number of Christians is approximately 2 billion people. They all know about the legend of “The Crossing of the Red Sea” in “Exodus” (“Exodus” in the «Old Testament»).
Accordingly, the Israeli Moses, after receiving the will of God Jehovah, performed miracles many times in Egypt. Especially the last time, when all the Egyptians’ firstborn children and all their newborn livestock died in one night, the Egyptian Pharaoh was forced to release the more enslaved Israelites. 400 years.
When Moses led the Israelites to the shore of the Red Sea, Pharaoh went back on his word and sent his army after him. The Israelites were very afraid, but Moses told them: “Don’t be afraid, just stop. See how God Jehovah performs his salvation with us today.”
When night fell, there was a cloud that formed a wall to separate the Egyptians from the Israelites. The Egyptians were on the dark side, and the Israelites were on the bright side like day. God Jehovah said to Moses: “You stretch out your staff toward the sea and separate the waters. The people of Israel will follow it across the sea.”
When reaching the shore, according to the will of God Jehovah, Moses raised his staff and separated the sea water on both sides to create a road, with two towering walls of water on both sides. The Israelites followed that road and crossed the Red Sea.
When Pharaoh led his army to pursue this road, God Jehovah told Moses: “You point your staff toward the sea and command the water to rush into the chariots and horses of the Egyptian army.” Immediately Moses pointed his staff towards the sea, the sea water began to close, causing Pharaoh and the army chasing the Isreal people to all sink into the sea.
This story has been widely spread over thousands of years and many literary and cinematic works also mention it as the power of God expressed through the ability of the character Moses. Most people think the story is fictional. But recent studies have shown that it may actually have happened.
Evidence was found under the Red Sea
Swedish scientist Lennart Moller cooperated with the TV channel in a program to learn about traces of roads on the Red Sea. Here, they found a large number of ancient relics belonging to the Egyptian army.
Previously, in 1978, Dr. Ron Wyatt also found human bones, horses, and submarine wrecks in the Red Sea. They are said to be evidence of the crossing of the Red Sea by the Pharaoh’s army when pursuing the Jews.
One of the many mineralized remains found at the crossing site was tested and proven by the osteology department of Stockholm University to be a human femur, the right femur of a man about 165-170cm tall. Basically, it has been “fossilized” – that is, it has been replaced by corals and minerals, so it is not possible to use the Radiocarbon method to date the bone sample, even though it clearly an ancient artifact. The wheels and axles were covered with coral and capsized.
When Dr. Ron Wyatt first visited Nuweiba in 1978, when he found a pillar with Phenician inscriptions lying underwater. Unfortunately, the writing had eroded, so the importance of this pillar was not known until 1984, when a second granite pillar was found across the Saudi coast and very similar to the first. with the writing intact.
In the words of the Phoenicians there are words: Mizraim (Egypt); Solomon; Edom; die; Pharaoh; Moses and Yahweh (Jehovah) imply that King Solomon erected these pillars to commemorate the miracle of crossing the sea. The Saudi government does not allow tourists to enter and perhaps because of fear of illegal tourists, the Saudi government has since removed this pole, replacing it with a flag pole.
Dr. Carl Drews also made quite a reasonable assumption. He believes that there is a 1.6km long reef offshore from Egypt across the Red Sea in the northern corridor, which when sea winds blow at a speed of 30m/hour will be able to push water to the sides. Here, the water level at low tide is about 1.5 to 1.8m (possibly up to 2.7 to 3m).
Therefore, the Gulf of Suez will extend longer to the North and the tidal range will also be larger. And if this is true, then when the tide rises, the “wall of water” can completely engulf the Egyptian army as recorded in the Bible.
In 1798, French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte and a group of his soldiers rode across the Gulf of Suez. In Korea, there is also a large stone road connecting the two islands Jindo and Modo, full of mystery and appeal.
The above documents show that the story of Saint Moses parting the sea is completely grounded in existence, and once again proves the accuracy of the Bible.
