About 3500 years ago a Hebrew leader by the name of Moses led the Hebrew slaves out of Egypt. For all of those hundreds of thousands of slaves to escape from Egypt all at once would have been a terrible blow to the economy of Egypt.
Crossing on Dry Ground
At that point, what is arguably the biggest miracle in the Bible occurred. A strong wind came and piled the water up. The Hebrews were able to walk across the Red Sea on dry ground.
After the Hebrews had reached the other side of the Red Sea, Pharaoh’s army were in the middle of the waterless seabed. The wind stopped, the water once again covered the sea bed and Pharaoh’s army were drowned.
The Hebrews kept walking until they got to Mt. Sinai. Moses hiked up the mountain where he got the ten commandments from God.
The one on the left is a fossilized wheel in the bottom of the Gulf of Aqaba. The other is a painting from an Egyptian tomb. Notice the similarities.
