Author Joel Richardson
Join author Joel Richardson on the adventure of a lifetime in Saudi Arabia as he imparts his recent findings and an in-depth analysis of the land of Midian.
Embark on an Ancient Journey
The foundational narrative of the Exodus, as outlined in the second book of the Torah of Yahweh, contains some of the most vital and momentous accounts in all the Old Testament. The quest to uncover the archaeological and geological evidence of the Israelites’ liberation from Egypt, Moses’ revelation at Mt. Sinai, and the nation of Israel’s ensuing desert wanderings have captured the hearts and minds of some of history’s most brilliant scholars and explorers. Cartographers, archaeologists, scientists, adventurers, historians and disciples of all backgrounds have sought out the genuine locations as depicted in ancient manuscripts. Finally – with the advent of state-of-the-art technology and the ever-increasing political stability of the region – the Northwest corner of Arabia has begun to divulge its buried secrets.
Join author Joel Richardson on the adventure of a lifetime as he imparts his recent findings and his incomparable analysis of the land of Midian. By joining his team, you have an exclusive opportunity to study the land and inspect its evidences with remarkable teachers at the helm. Explore Midian, known by locals to be the home land of Jethro (the prophet named Shu’ayb) who was Moses’ father-in-law. Examine the Split Rock of Horeb at Jabal Maqla, where Moses struck the boulder and God miraculously provided water from within. Survey the Jabal al-Lawz mountain, with its charred and blackened summit ascertained to be the original Mount Sinai which Yahweh descended upon in fire. Discover for yourself why Jewish and Bedouin traditions have continued for centuries to call this peak: “The Mountain of Moses.”
