Split Rock at Horeb

P8-Horeb1

When Moses struck the rock, water
sufficient for 
a million people
poured forth!

One of the most significant discoveries at the Mount Sinai site is the Split Rock at Horeb that provided water for the Hebrews.

The rock is an impressive landmark, resting on top of a mound which is approximately 100 feet high. The rock itself is a huge boulder approximately 60 feet high and split down the middle with an opening large enough for a man to walk through.

Of great significance is the fact that on both sides of the rock there are obvious marks of water erosion. There are also what appear to be man-made channels running from the rock to where the Hebrews would have camped. The amount of water required to sustain all of the people plus their flocks of animals would have been absolutely enormous. Who would have thought that water could gush forth from a rock in the desert? But the testimony of the area bears record that the God of miracles sustained His people in a miraculous way.
