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 of 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 depicted in ancient manuscripts. Finally – with the advent of state-of-the-art technology and the region’s ever-increasing political stability, 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 evidence, with a remarkable teacher at the helm. Explore Midian, known by locals to be the homeland 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”.
This expedition of Biblical proportions starts at $4,799 per person (sharing a double room). The optional Red Sea dive extension (or for the same price, instead visit Petra) is only $786 per person (sharing a double room). Keep in mind we match roomates! You can also learn to dive on the trip. There are 4 dives in total. Our air program is out of Washington, Dulles on Turkish Airlines with an add-on of $949 per person. You can book your own air into Aqaba or Tabuk (or Amman), we can assist you in selecting the right flights. See the last few pages under Terms & Conditions, Airline Tickets for details.
Camping at the Base of the Blackened-top of Mount Sinai!
This will be a true adventure in an historic wilderness! Our Saudi Arabia overnight camping is designed for the intrepid adventurer. While camping isn’t necessary to see the site of Mount Sinai, Jabal al-Lawz and Jabal Maqla, you WILL need to camp in order to CLIMB Mount Sinai. The optional camping night includes private tents — with a SHARED, mobile bathroom — mobile kitchen, and a large, Arabian tent set-up for teachings and fellowship — all at the base of Mount Sinai.
Those who have the desire to camp while traveling with someone who’s more into resort-lodging can rest assured that their companion’s comforts will be readily accommodated at the Red Sea Hotel with the rest of the group. The camping add-on is $650 and includes a special breakfast, dinner and a trekking guide to the mountain. Even those who opt not to climb can still enjoy the camping trip!
