Introduction:

  1. The Wilderness of Egypt is the Sinai Peninsula
  2. The Wilderness of Egypt is something that everyone has missed.
  3. This wilderness is between Goshen and where they crossed the Red Sea.
  4. This wilderness proves that Israel did not cross the Red Sea at the Bitter Lakes or the Port of Suez. There simply is no wilderness area there and both crossing points are within major population areas.
  5. Only when you correctly account for the 16 day journey that Israel took to get to the Red Sea, do you realize that only the straits of Tiran are an excellent candidate for where they crossed the Red Sea.

Bible references to the Wilderness of Egypt:

  1. Wilderness of Egypt is the Sinai Peninsula: "As I entered into judgment with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt" Ezekiel 20:36
  2. Notice these two passage that say they went through a wilderness before crossing the Red Sea: "For when they came up from Egypt, and Israel went through the wilderness to the Red Sea and came to Kadesh" Judges 11:16; "Hence God led the people around by the way of the wilderness to the Red Sea; and the sons of Israel went up in martial array from the land of Egypt." Exodus 13:18
  3. The wind blows from the Sinai, through the Negev: "As windstorms in the Negev sweep on, It comes from the wilderness, from a terrifying land." Isaiah 21:1
