Nuweiba Beach, Egypt

40 miles south of Eilat, Israel, on the western shore of the Gulf of Aqaba is a huge sandy beach and peninsula that researchers have now verified as the Red Sea crossing site where Moses and the people of Israel escaped the wrath of the Pharaoh of Egypt.

The site was first identified by a Biblical archeological explorer named Ron Wyatt after he flew over the area in a small private airplane in 1978. Wyatt reasoned that evidence should still exist at the Red Sea crossing site where God miraculously separated the waters and delivered His people from Egypt.

 Wyatt's first evidence was the discovery of a large stone column lying in the water. Wyatt's first evidence was the discovery of a large stone column lying in the water.

Later, on the eastern shore of the Red Sea, opposite Nuweiba Beach, Wyatt found a matching column with an inscription that could still be read. It was erected by King Solomon as a memorial to the Great God of Israel Who delivered His people from the armies of Egypt.

Wyatt also began to find evidence of Chariot wheels underwater. They had been preserved by coral that had attached themselves to the four-, six- and eight-spoked wheels which were typical of the wheels used in the 18th Dynasty. He recovered the hub of a wheel with the remains of eight spokes and gave this significant find to Nassif Mohammed Hassan, Director of Antiquities in Cairo. Mr. Hassan immediately identified the artifact as a chariot wheel dating 3500 years ago during the 18th Dynasty, the only time the ancient Egyptians used an eight spoked wheel.

Repeated dives by Wyatt and his two sons, over a stretch of nearly two miles, revealed that chariot parts literally littered the area.

It is estimated that Pharaoh’s army of nearly 250,000 soldiers was totally destroyed while Moses and his unarmed Hebrew nation were miraculously delivered as recorded in the Bible.

“And the waters returned and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came to the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them. But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. Thus the LORD saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the seashore.”              Exodus 14:28-30

One of the four-spoked chariot wheels was covered with gold. It was too fragile to try to remove but the photo clearly shows the circular rim of the ancient wheel, spokes and even the hub!

The Exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt through the Red Sea occurred at Nuweiba Beach, 40 miles south of Eilat, Israel.

    I believe the bible is literally true. I have no problem with the fact that the Hebrews escaped the Egyptian army via God’s supernatural intervention. However, don’t give me a narrative that says the wheels had eight spokes and you show a picture of a wheel with four spokes. Really? Your comments should match the “evidence”.

    • Mike,
      If you were to read the article closely, you would see that 4, 6 and 8 spoked wheels were referred to.

      “Wyatt also began to find evidence of Chariot wheels underwater. They had been preserved by coral that had attached themselves to the four-, six- and eight-spoked wheels which were typical of the wheels used in the 18th Dynasty.”
      Really – they do…

      Seriously, just the fact that there was a chariot wheel there (not to mention many more than just one) is amazing in and of itself. That alone is worth a “LIKE” on the article – don’t you think?

  2. Wow! Great. Even though we who experience the REALITY of our relationship with the living God don’t need such proof, it is good to know.

    No matter what proofs are found, there are some who WILL not believe.

    • Absolutely! That is the reason that these articles are produced – to provide evidences/proof to the Bible’s claims to the supernatural.

      Thanks for your support in reading these articles and for your great comments!
