RED SEA: Archaeologists Discover Remains Of Egyptian Army From The Biblical Exodus

The discovery of the remains of a large Egyptian army at the bottom of the Gulf of Suez, 1.5 km offshore from the modern city of Ras Gharib, has been announced this morning by Egypt’s Antiquities Ministry. The team of underwater archaeologists was in search of ancient shipwrecks and artifacts from the Stone and Bronze Age trade in the Red Sea when they came across a huge pile of human bones dated back to the 14th century BC.

The team of underwater archaeologists was in search of ancient shipwrecks and artifacts from the Stone and Bronze Age trade in the Red Sea when they came across a huge pile of human bones dated back to the 14th century BC.

Over 400 different skeletons have been discovered by the team of scientists lead by Professor Abdel Muhammad Gader from the Faculty of Archaeology at Cairo University. The discovery also includes hundreds of weapons and pieces of armor, the remains of two war chariots, dispersed over an area of nearly 200 square meters. According to the archaeologists, more than 5,000 other bodies could be scattered over a wider area, which implies that itÂ’s possibly a large army that had disappeared in this area.

The image shows a superb blade from an Egyptian khopesh, which was a very important weapon at the time. As it was discovered near the relics of an ornately decorated war chariot, the team believes that it possibly belonged to a prince or nobleman.

The numerous clues found at the site have led Professor Gader and his team to believe that the bodies are related to the well-known Exodus. Namely, the ancient soldiers appear to have died on land, because the researchers didnÂ’t find any traces of boats or ships in the area. Plus, the position of the bodies, along with the fact that they were stuck in clay and rock, indicates that the warriors had possibly died in a mudslide or a tidal wave.

Also, the large number of bodies points toward a big-sized army. All of these facts support the biblical version of the Red Sea Crossing when the army of the Egyptian Pharaoh was destroyed by the returning waters that Moses had parted.

The recent discovery confirms that during the reign of King Akhenaten, there truly was an Egyptian army of large size destroyed by the waters of the Red Sea.

PIHAHIROTH (Pi·ha·hi?roth).The last camping site of the Israelites before crossing the Red Sea.


Pihahiroth was near the Red Sea at some point where the only route of escape from the advancing Egyptian forces was through the sea itself. The sea at that point must have been of sufficient depth to allow for the waters to be “split apart” to form a passage through “the midst of the sea,” with the waters forming a “wall” on both sides. (Ex 14:16, 21, 22) No site N of the Gulf of Suez could adequately provide these requirements. It is true that many modern scholars favor the theory of a crossing in the shallow Bitter Lakes region, which begins about 25 km (16 mi) N of Suez. This view, however, is accompanied either by a denial of the miraculous nature of the crossing (claiming that the crossing was only through a marsh or swamp) or by the idea that the northern end of the Red Sea anciently ran up into the Bitter Lakes region and that the waters there were of much greater depth at that time, whereas archaeological evidence is that there has been very little change in the water level from ancient times.

This is NOT EVIDENCE that indicates the Bible is correct.

It is a theory that MIGHT be evidence that the Bible is correct.

There is a difference.

a BIG difference!

Do not become self deluded because you WANT something to be true.

That is the difference between GOOD Detectives ... and bad detectives.

Bad detectives base their conclusions on what they WANT to be true.

Archaeologists very often base their conclusions  on what will generate the most grant money, so that they can pay their mortgages, and get lil' Debbie's teeth fixed, and how maxed out their credit cards are.
