There’s a thing that bothers me more, the more I look for it. I’m talking about a map that shows
the route that Moses and the Israelites took across the Red Sea.
Nowhere that I’ve looked, can I find a route across the water. Even the King James Version of the Bible
doesn’t show it…at least in all the versions I’ve checked. And I’ve looked at many maps in my computer,
and the closest to anyone admitting that they crossed ANY water, is one that shows them crossing the Gulf of Aqaba, which
is an arm of the Red Sea.
I’ve also checked an older encyclopedia, which somehow I trust more than computer stuff that has come
out since we got the term, “politically correct” that does all it can to tear down the Christian beliefs
of we folks who still believe there is right and wrong to be considered in every matter, and who (gasp) believe
the Bible to be true. I’m what they snicker and call a “Conservative,” and I’ve invented a new phrase
for the liberals to use: “Don’t trust anybody over 60.” Because we believe there’s a Heaven and a
hell, and everyone is headed for one or the other.
And we believe that Moses and about two-and-a-half million Israelites crossed the Red Sea in water that drowned
Pharaoh and his soldiers who were chasing after them. (I’m estimating 2 ½ million, because there were 600,000 men, besides
the women and children, and in those days when they had many wives and many children, 2 ½ is very conservative. (There’s
that word again, but this time is isn’t capitalized).
At any rate, I’m disappointed that even the Bible we’ve used down through the ages, only shows
the route as going between the north end of the Red Sea and a small piece of water on the edge of Goshen. In the picture,
the crossing is done on dry land.
I’d appreciate anyone who can send me a picture that agrees with the King James Bible. There are other
good versions of the bible, but there are also some that may show them crossing a pontoon bridge in Model-T Fords. Be careful
of the source of what you read.
