Author: Lt. Col. C. C. Robertson
Successfully challenges traditional thought regarding the route of the Exodus.
The author has studied the question of the Exodus in minute detail. He has succeeded in solving many difficulties and problems arising in respect to the traditional route of the Exodus and Mount Sinai. The results of his research presents the most probable location in which the Israelites sojourned during their long stay in the wilderness.
Robertson's explanation of the division of the sea through intense evaporation is one readers may find difficult to accept. However other conclusions although radical and thought-provoking departures from previous conceptions are both logical and probable. Having read this book the reader will gain a much more intimate knowledge of the regions through which Israel moved which conforms and illuminates the scripture record.
Some of the "revolutionary" aspects of this book are as follows:
- There was no "flight" from Egypt.
- Sinai was not a great mountain.
- There was no "wandering in the Wilderness".
- Princess Bithiah daughter of Pharoah was the wife of Mered a prince of Judah . She rescued Moses from the waters.
- The Israelites encamped at the mouth of the Gulf of Suez over against Mt. Shomer.
- They crossed the "Sea of Reeds" at this point.
- They did not sojourn in the "Sinai Peninusula" but in Midian where the Biblical Sinai is located. (Exact location unknown.)
- They dwelt in the Wilderness of Sinai east of the Wadi Araba for 38 years.
- The exodus was a land and sea operation dependent on water transport for the migration from Egypt to Midian.
