Exodus 14, the crossing of the Red Sea.

Exodus 14, the crossing of the Red Sea.

Yes, this route seems confusing, and Pharaoh thought so too.

From a map from the building of the Suez Canal some of names are mentioned.

This route is less glorious than the Hollywood production, but closer to what Scripture says.

As a child I was fascinated by this etching by Gustave Doré, the traditional crossing of the Red Sea. Feel free to imagine whichever version is true, God shows His greatness many ways.
