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.

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.

"This is an extremely interesting documentary about the search for the real Mount Sinai in the book of Exodus in the Bible. The evidence they found is amazing and compelling, and the site is not on the Sinai Peninsula as is listed on most biblical maps. The video is very well done and answers a lot of age old questions with real evidence. It totally coroborates the Exodus story, including the parting of the Red Sea story in an almost Indiana Jones-type adventure. Presented in a non-sectarian way, it's a must see for Jews, Christians and anyone interested in archaeology and history. Fascinating!"
Go for the Original Discovery DVD instead of this one !!!

"The DVD "Mountain of Fire: The Discovery of the Real Mount Sinai " is not the original discovery though whatever shown in it is authentic. The site was first discovered by amateur biblical archeologist Mr.Ron Wyatt who is also credited with the discovery of Noah's Ark. It was he who first entered Saudi Arabia along with his two sons without proper papers and went on to discover the site. However, he and his sons were soon arrested by the Saudi authorities on the charges of espionage for the state of Israel. They were later released by the authorities after three months when Ron Waytt was able to convince the Saudi authorities that he had found the real "Mount Sinai". However, the evidence they had collected was confiscated by the authorities. After the incident, the Saudi authorities converted the entire area into an archeological site and fenced the whole area fearing that the site might lead to political instability as it would attract attention from Christians and Jewish people which they probably deemed undesirable for a Muslim state. However, after some years, Ron did manage to get the videos of Mt. Sinai and its surroundings with the help of a friend. It is only after this that the biblical explorers Bob Cornuke and Larry Williams visited the site and brought the evidence. If you notice in this DVD, the archeologists Bob and Larry state that some persons had gone in Saudi before and got arrested with their videos confiscated. They were talking about Ron.
If you really want to have more in-depth information about Mount Sinai, I strongly recommend that you go to the website of Wyatt Museum (just search it on any search engine like yahoo or google. Not being able to mention it due to restrictions) to get the original and more authentic footage (without any recreations as in this DVD) and see for yourself. The evidence presented on "The Exodus" DVD available on the said site is much vast and the onsite footage much detailed. It explores the events & route of the Exodus, revealing the extensive amount of evidence which proves the precise accuracy of the Biblical account in thrilling detail. Featuring the Red Sea Crossing site and Mt. Sinai in Saudi Arabia, it presents compelling evidences like the altar "Jehovah Nissi" made by Moses near the Rock at Horeb; the infamous Golden Calf altar; the remains of 12 Marble Pillars erected by Moses for the twelve tribes of Israel as recorded in the Scriptures; a Solitary tree located at the peak of Mt. Sinai; the water-providing large Rock at Horeb; the area of the Holy Precinct and Phoenician-style granite column erected later by King Solomon to commemorate the great event of Exodus. It also explores the underwater evidence such as Egyptian chariot remains, found at the red sea crossing site. The "Search for the Real Mt. Sinai" DVD supplements little information when compared to "The Exodus" DVD. However, as always is the case, the original things generally get subdued by their duplicates.
Not only this, the above site also contains DVDs on discoveries of Noah's Ark, Exodus, Sodom & Gomorrah and Ark of the Covenant. After viewing these DVDs, I really believe that the God had chosen Ron Wyatt to unearth all the major discoveries to be a witness for this last adulterous generation, as all the discoveries made by Mr.Ron Wyatt are incredible and possible only with the understanding given by the LORD. I feel priviledged and blessed to have witnessed the proof of God's mighty work in the past and also invite you to share the evidence put forth by God. "

Bible's First Rate Accuracy of the Exodus Account

"I was pleased to see a serious approach taken in consideration of the actual site for Mount Sinai, which coupled a solid scientific investigation with a review and comparison with what has been found at the traditional site in the Sinai Peninsula. The evidence is not only original and compelling, but conclusive."
THE FIERY MOUNTAIN OF MOSES' PRAYER!
William Hunt | Northern Florida, USA | 04/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)
"THIS INCREDIBLE DVD leaves one with the lasting experience of the Mountain of Prayer from the standpoint of Moses, a place where he met the GOD of the Universe face to face. It was the same for Elijah when he ran across the desert sands centuries later to visit with God at the mouth of the cave in the face of this mountain. Before they left the mountain a year after their arrival, the Hebrew people would learn prayer as well, standing in the entrance of their tents, tribe by tribe, waiting for the Glory of the Lord to descend upon the Tent of Meeting in the Ark of the Covenant. They waited upon the Lord of the Universe, even as through centuries, they have waited in their talits, their prayer garments, for the move of His Mighty Spirit. It all began here. The lesson this mountain speaks so clearly is still the same today, to wait in prayer.
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."
