Since 2019, Joel has been able to increase more of the Biblical story of the Exodus in Arabia.  As a scholar on Saudi Arabia and the aspects of the Israelites in this land, this particular journey includes ALL OF THE MAJOR SITES of the Exodus, including the Altar of Moses, Golden Calf, the Mountain of Jabal al Lawz, Maqla, Midian, home of Jethro, the Well of Moses, the well of Moses and Zipporah, the Red Sea crossing site, the Hisma Desert, the Wilderness of Sinai, the Split Rock of Horeb, Rephidim and so much more.  But in addition to these main explorations on all of Joel’s expeditions, he is adding the following sites for this particular longer journey. 

  • The magnificent archers on the opposite side of Jabal al Lawz consistent with Exodus 19:10-14
  • The Numbers stone of Numbers 20 that records numerous ancient Hebrew letters and incredible inscriptions of snakes with blessings and curses.
  • A more intensive view of the cemetery of Exodus 32:28 along with shelters and food storage.
  • Aynounah, the burial ground of Abraham’s children, also called the oasis of Leuce.
  • An Amalekite “high place” with its inscriptions of decadence on the top altar.
  • The controversial mold’s and furnaces plateau.
  • Jewish burial circles at Rephidim.
  • The Arabah.

Joel continues to add to his sights, and being with him, with this extra time will provide you with lots more opportunities to view God’s word – alive in stone. 

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 upon which Yahweh descended in fire. This particular expedition includes sights that were only recently discovered in 2024 and therefore, this particular journey is longer than Joel’s previous expeditions.

Discover for yourself why Jewish and Bedouin traditions have continued for centuries to call this peak: “The Mountain of Moses.”

Saudi Climbing

This will be a true adventure in an historic wilderness! Our Saudi Arabia overnight camping is designed for the intrepid adventurer.

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!
