In the 90s I digested Bob Cornuke’s material of his biblical investigations and discoveries, in particular his claim that the real Mount Sinai is located in Saudi Arabia and not the traditional site in the Sinai Peninsula. The biblical, historical, and material evidence is convincing.
Joel Richardson recently visited the area and gives an intriguing report on Jabal al Lawz as the REAL Mount Sinai as well as talks about the city Neom in the making:
The research and site survey being investigated by the BASE Institute has strong potential. Is it the Biblical Mt. Sinai? The BASE Institute does not make the claim that we have found Mount Sinai. We’ll let you draw your own conclusions. In our opinion, it’s a candidate. The research continues.
For centuries, Bible scholars and religious pilgrims have been seeking the location of Mt. Sinai. Today, most people are unaware that not one piece of hard evidence has been produced to verify that what is traditionally designated at “Mount Sinai” in the south central Sinai Peninsula is indeed the famed mountain of Moses and the Exodus.

(Helena also claimed she discovered the true “holy sepulcher” in Jerusalem and the true cross of Christ.)
