“So the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea”- Exodus 14: 27
Remains of bones and chariots of Pharaoh’s army discovered by divers in Gulf of Aqaba. Followed by discovery of these coral-encrusted remains has generated wide spread conjecture that this might be the actual route of Israel’s crossing of the Red Sea when the water was parted by the Lord.
Exodus 14:1-30 comprehensively and precisely reveals one of the most astounding Divine intervention when the Israelites fled from the army of Pharaoh which was pursuing them.
As Exodus 14 states the entire Egyptian army was engulfed by the raging waters as they returned to normal after parting in two creating a safe passage for the Israelites. The lately discovered remains serve as an imperative evidence that the Biblical narrative is truly genuine.
Previously, many have taken up the task of tracking down artefacts of the drowned Egyptians under the waters of Gulf of Suez in pursuit of archaeological evidence to the Biblical narrative. It was in 1978, that Ron Wyatt speculated that Nuweiba, a large beach in the Gulf of Aqaba could be the route followed by Israelites through the waters to the other side.
After oft-repeated daring dives in depths from 60 to 200 feet deep (18m to 60m), in excess of a stretch of about 2.5 km, mind-boggling sights dazzled the divers when they witnessed the chariot parts scattered across the sea bed. Moreover, the artefacts recovered by the divers include wheels, chariot bodies as well as human and horse bones.
Since 1987, Ron Wyatt was able to pull through three 4-spoke gilded chariot wheels. The fact remains that coral does not grow on gold, for this reason the shape has remained very distinct, even though the wood inside the gold surface has disintegrated making them too fragile to move.
This is not enough; one of the several bones which were mineralized was tested by the Department of Osteology at Stockholm University. After close study, it was found to be a human femur, from the right leg of a 165-170cm tall man. However, this bone was fossilized as it was replaced by minerals and coral, and radiocarbon method of dating can not be applied to it.
The Coral-sheathed chariot wheel, which was filmed under water, is found to be exactly the same as the chariot wheels found in Tutankhamen’s tomb. This is not all, the wheel and axle were up-ended.
