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.

  1. would not have mattered if they had a Gulf Stream 5, they were not getting out of that place – God had them there to demonstrate his power to protect his people!

    • AMEN!! We know God did it. I accept that on faith. I look forward to hearing more about this find and others. God’s people went across on dry ground. They would have had wagons or carts to carry things on. Their wheels did not get muddy. God made the wheels of the chariots work improperly. Whether He used mud or just spoke the Word, matters little.

    A man call RON WAYTT already reveled all of this, you can see everething in DVD, THE RED SEE REMAINS OF EGIPCIANS, THE MOUNT SINAÎ IN SAUDI ARABIA, THE SODOM & GOMORRAH END THE ARK OF COMANDAMENTS, ALL IN ONE DVD CALL ” GOD’s TRESURES.

    • Ron Waytt never discovered this new find so he could not have revealed any of this. Pure speculation with some biblical knowledge. I didn’t discover any of this and I know there are thousands of buried Egyptian soldiers under the Red Sea.

    • Ron Wyatt’s site is in a completely different location. Only one location can be correct…now it up to you to decide which one.

  3. 2 Timothy 3:16 For the whole scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable to teach, to convince, to correct, and instruct in righteousness.
    If the Bible says it happened it happened! Remember Christ died on the cross for all mankind an rose again after three days. This is in the Bible also, his (Christ) Tomb is empty! Repent of your sin and ask Christ in your heart for there is no other way to be saved!

    • Amen!

    • There is solid evidence Our Christ Jesus died on a stake not a Cross.

    • If it is written, it happened! Zombies walked in Jerusalem! Get over it. Praise god. Now who was with Jesus during the resurrection? One man, two men, one angel, or two angels? It all happened! They even found Pharaoh’s hardened heart.

  4. Of course that happened! There is no reason to doubt the Scriptures. So… don’t be surprised.
