The Red Sea Crossing Site
and Mount Sinai

Research Literature

"The Writing of God"
Dr. Miles Jones - 2010
An excellent study promoting the origin of alphabetic words came from God giving His Word and law. Literatacy and the knowledge of God was to be dispersed through the nation of Israel. This illustrated book shows that the Hebrews marked the land with depictions of the soles of their feet in the form of sandals which God promised to give them. The Saudis are desperately trying to keep this and the huge amount of evidence for a large Hebrew presence in Saudi a secret. The only negative in the book is bad reference and timeline information concerning Ron Wyatt. This has been addressed through our trading documentation and Miles does coerced, but fun, penance in the picture above holding Ron's book.

Letters to the Royal Household from Jerusalem in 1883 from General Charles Gordon of Khatoum to Sir John Cowell, Comptroller to the household of Queen Victoria.
