The exact location of Mount Sinai has eluded archeologists and theologians for centuries. It is the mountain of legend chronicled in the Old Testament book of Exodus. The mountain where Moses saw the glory of the God of the Hebrews, fell to his knees in fear before a burning bush and received the stone tablets containing Holy law etched by the finger of God.
Tradition has placed this holey mountain squarely in the middle of the Egyptian Sinai peninsula, but two unlikely teams of adventurers made a different discovery. This is the remarkable true story of their journey. A dangerous mission, leading them to the barren deserts of Saudi Arabia and to a mysterious blackened peak surrounded by high barbed-wire fences and patrolled by armed guards. Smuggled out at great risk, their startling evidence has the potential to shock the world and rewrite history.

The documentary disproves Christian tradition that it is in the Sinai peninsula. The video is great evidence the story of the Hebrew Exodus as told in the Scriptures is totally true and accurate.
WHAT AN EXPERIENCE! GOD first revealed himself on this Fiery Mountain. From there, he accompanied the Hebrews intimately in the Ark of the Covenant in the Tent of Meeting. Later, God's powerful presence continued to dwell in Ark of the Covenant as it was placed in the Holy of Holies in the Jerusalem Temple. After the huge, thick curtain in the Holy of Holies tore from top to bottom (Luke 23:45) at the crucifixion death of Jesus, the SPIRIT OF GOD found a new place to dwell ever more intimately with his people.... This is the ancient evidence, 3500 years a secret in the desert, of God working with his people.
Two American explorers tell how they made it into the private estate of the king of Arabia (the Saudi's estate). We should take note the king and the slaves of his fiefdom can leave his property without problems, it's you getting in there the problem. Great views of the Arabina desert and the mountain itself. The scarce people from the area call the mountain "Moses Mountain", why do you think they do that? They spend some precious time explaining away why the traditional site in Egypt's Sinai peninsula can't be the real location, which is obvious enough and -to me- needs no wasting time on it.
The most spectacular thing, among many, was the split rock: imposing, awesome, right there, gigantic, on the side of the mountain. The whole idea of God's Mountain being in this forgotten and forbidden area of the world, while multitudes of tourists are flocking to Egypt to the the fake one is a whole different matter for thought. There is irony there, but at the same time, how should we feel if thousands of curious tourists were to crowd the holy ground of this mountain, to make it into a vulgar spectacle?
Beyond the sheer beauty and awesomeness of the images lies the thinking: What are we, believers in the one God of the Jews, us Christians and Jews, to make of this reality? How should it affect us? Should we try to send a bunch of anti-Christian scientists from national Geographic to dig deeper into this issue, or should we leave it as it is?
