The Evidence at the Mountain

Biblical description of Mt. Sinai

The first thing Ron noticed when he saw Jebel el Lawz in 1984, just prior to his arrest, was that the high peak of the mountain range was distinctly black. When one stands at the base of the mountain – just outside the boundary markers which we will discuss a little later, the high peak that can be seen looks like it is made of coal.


” And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire”

…….EXODUS 19:18

” And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly….”

…….EXODUS 19:18

” And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.”

…….EXODUS 20:18

” The mountains melted from before the LORD, even that Sinai from before the LORD God of Israel.”

…….JUDGES 5:5

” The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel.”

…….PSALMS 68:8

But it is perhaps a mile or more from the base of the mountain. As we read the Biblical account of the event, we can see that this site fits the description given perfectly:
