Saudi Arabia


Travel to Saudi Arabia in 2024 with Ryan Mauro! Visit the ancient land of Midian and explore exclusive sites around Jabal al-Lawz and the Split Rock.

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 ever-increasing political stability of the region – the Northwest corner of Arabia has begun to divulge its buried secrets. This tour has been designed to include time at the end for further investigations – that you will be a part of! Watch the region expand the antiquities that have remained behind the veil.

Join News Analyst, Patterns of Evidence “Journey to Mount Sinai” cast member and Jabal al-Lawz researcher, Ryan Mauro for a witty, insightful expedition to the land of Midian. The tour cost is $3,999 per person (sharing a double room) plus airfare.

Why This Trip?

By joining this tour, you have an exclusive opportunity to study the land and inspect its evidence with remarkable experience 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.” Take this afternoon together to research and uncover fresh discoveries in and around the mountain or Midian.
