Red Sea: Archaeologists Discover Remains of Egyptian Army From the Biblical Exodus


Suez| Egypt’s Antiquities Ministry announced this morning that a team of underwater archaeologists had discovered that remains of a large Egyptian army from the 14th century BC, at the bottom of the Gulf of Suez, 1.5 kilometers offshore from the modern city of  Ras Gharib. The team was searching for the remains of ancient ships and artefacts related to Stone Age and Bronze Age trade in the Red Sea area, when they stumbled upon a gigantic mass of human bones darkened by age. 

The scientists lead by Professor Abdel Muhammad Gader and associated with Cairo University’s Faculty of Archaeology, have already recovered a total of more than 400 different skeletons, as well as hundreds of weapons and pieces of armor, also the remains of two war chariots, scattered over an area of approximately 200 square meters. They estimate that more than 5000 other bodies could be dispersed over a wider area, suggesting that an army of large size who have perished on the site.

This magnificient blade from an egyptian khopesh,  was certainly the weapon of an important character. It was discovered near the remains of a highly decorated war chariot, suggesting it could have belonged to a prince or nobleman.

This magnificient blade from an egyptian khopesh, was certainly the weapon of an important character. It was discovered near the remains of a richly decorated war chariot, suggesting it could have belonged to a prince or nobleman.

Many clues on the site have brought Professor Gader and his team to conclude that the bodies could be linked to the famous episode of the Exodus. First of all, the ancient soldiers seem to have died on dry ground, since no  traces of boats or ships have been found in the area. The positions of the bodies and the fact that they were stuck in a vast quantity of clay and rock, implie that they could have died in a mudslide or a tidal wave.

The shear number of bodies suggests that a large ancient army perished on the site and the dramatic way by which they were killed, both seem to corroborate the biblical version of the Red Sea Crossing, when the army of the Egyptian Pharaoh was destroyed by the returning waters that Moses had parted. This new find certainly proves that there was indeed an Egyptian army of large size that was destroyed by the waters of the Red Sea during the reign of King Akhenaten.

The famous biblical account of the "Red Sea Crossing" was dismisseded by many scholars and historians as more symbolic than historical.

For centuries, the famous biblical account of the “Red Sea Crossing” was dismissed by most scholars and historians as more symbolic than historical.

This astounding discovery brings undeniable scientific proof that one the most famous episodes of the Old Testament was indeed, based on an historical event. It brings a brand new perspective on a story that many historians have been considering for years as a work of fiction, and suggesting that other themes like the “Plagues of Egypt” could indeed have an historical base.

A lot more research and many more recovery operations are to be expected on the site over the next few years, as Professor Gader and his team have already announced their desire to retrieve the rest of the bodies and artefacts from was has turned out to be one of the richest archaeological underwater sites ever discovered.

    Is this the same location that Ron Wyatt found? Ron Wyatt’s find of the crossing is the Israelite one recorded in Exodus. His find was the only one that met every scriptural requirement. If this is the same location as Ron Wyatt then it’s the Exodus account. If not it’s another defeat of the Egyptians for some other reason at a different time.

  2. Dear brethreen, Thank you for your comments on Exodus 14:24-25 it has been long time, since you discused on this, but to day is a blessing to me and others, may the Lord Jesus Bless you all.

  3. The sceptics will always try to disprove the bible and the question that many should ask is.why is it that the rest of the world doesn’t know about this important discovery? Why doesn’t mainstream media have this as the discovery of the century or millennium? We as Christians know that Noah’s ark has being found but do they talk about it? No!! You know why? Because the entire world would convert! Right? Maybe! So my take on this is that the God of this system the devil himself is keeping this secret away from the rest of humanity.

  4. I am extremely happy about this discovery , and hope that many more of these will follow , so that the face of sisance would change , and be built on facts and not on asumsion .

  5. how do i cite this? who made this cite and what year?

    You all are mispercived….moses was surrounded by a sea of red men or soldiers covered in blood who ,after moses surrendered , PARTED AND ALLOWED MOSES AND FOLLOWERS TO GO

  8. The KJV was translated from the English Tyndel Bible. William Tyndel was fluent in serval languages two being Greek and Hebrew. William Tyndel vowed that he would translate a Bible that even a common plow boy could understand. William Tyndel was Martyred because of his Bible. Mary was Queen then the daughter of HenryVII she became known as Bloody Mary because she had 800 people put to death.

  9. Thanks to Almighty God who let us discover these thing thiusands of years ago . Since God promise is the final. Hence He said in Quran we will preserve the Firaoun body from being eaten by fish and we see that after many years the body was still in good shape like he just drowned today. My God uou are greatest and Super. No one is like you. WE all are servent of You.

    Every man and human being lived on earth was and is creation of Only One God.

    There are going to be variations in every Bible. That is why it is best to use different versions when studying. We all know that the Bible is a collection of stories told/documented by different people. You have to pray for discernment, not argue about which version is correct. Encompass the meaning of what is being delivered to your heart from all versions studied. You generally get the full idea of the message at hand when doing so. There are still books missing from the Bible. Does that stop us from getting closer to God? No. Follow your heart. God is not of confusion or arguing. His word stands alone…no matter what version you use. He reveals himself according to your desires to search and know Him.
