THE EXODUS IN ARABIA

SITES ALONG THE WAY AS IDENTIFIED IN THE BIBLICAL ACCOUNT AND CONFIRMED IN ARABIA.

Some preliminary thoughts.

The First mention of Kadesh in the Bible is Genesis 16:14.  We have identified Kadesh Barnea as Mecca and this reference seems to confirm that.

Genesis 16:14  "She called the  well  Be'er Lachai Roi   It is between Kadesh and Bered."

Read the entire scripture referred to -- click here.

Ibn Ezra the great Jewish sage identifies this well with Zimum (or in other versions, Zimzum), "where the Arabs hold an annual festival.  This is Zemzem near Mecca. "

According to this  Hagar headed in to the Arabian Peninsula rather than toward Egypt. 

Further, in a paper on Kadesh Barnea published in the Palestinian Exploration Quarterly in 1964/65 H. Bar-Deroma used the identification of Kadesh as a way that the Bible defined the borders of "Israel" in Numbers 34:3 to extend those borders almost a quarter of the way down the Arabian peninsular.

8/26/02  - Addendum
    JEWS IN ARABIA -- The Jewish Rabbi Binyamin of Tudela did an extensive census of Jews in the world in approximately 1175 AD.  47.7% -  FORTY SEVEN PERCENT - lived in Arabia/Yemen (465,000 of the 975,000 that he counted .....   WHY??????
