Is Saudi Arabia the holiest place in the world? Ancient Hebrew Inscriptions from "The Mount Sinai Stand" Discovered in Saudi Arabia
Historians and biblical scholars have long debated the location of the biblical Mount Sinai, the place where Moses received the Ten Commandments from God. Several propositions have been raised, such as Mount Karkom in the Negev or Jebel Musa in the Sinai Peninsula. Another hypothesis, which had been previously rejected by many experts, suggested that the Israelites crossed Sinai and the Red Sea and then continued to Jebel al-Lawz, located in the north-east of Saudi Arabia, near the Jordanian border. Jebel al-Lawz had been proposed as a candidate for the biblical Mount Sinai, but this claim was critiqued by other historians, pointing out that identifying Mount Sinai in ancient Midian (Saudi Arabia) did not align with the biblical text. However, new findings suggest that this theory should be reconsidered - it might indeed be correct.
