The ancient Exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt has been a topic of mystique and curiosity for centuries. Its principal enigmas are the whereabouts of Mount Sinai and the parting of the sea. This sea, called Yam Suph by Moses, appeared as a landmark throughout the Exodus, but its location has never been clearly identified. Determining the position of this “Lost Sea” would provide vital clues about the location of Mount Sinai and the path of the Exodus.
The Lost Sea of the Exodus presents the findings of a painstakingly comprehensive, scientific investigation by Dr. Glen Fritz who holds a PhD in Environmental Geography. Disclosed over its 352 pages is the identity of the sea that best fits the biblical criteria, and the reasons it became “lost.” In the process, the popular “Red Sea” and “Reed Sea” traditions are fully explained and challenged.
This new Second Edition also presents the details of the likely Exodus route between Egypt and the sea, with fresh light thrown on the mysterious biblical locations of Etham, Pihahiroth, Migdol, Shur, and Baal-Zephon.
A map-lover’s dream come true, this beautifully bound hardcover Second Edition is a rewritten and greatly expanded version of the 2007 first edition. The 192 maps, charts and other images add up to nearly two times more than in the original edition.
