The Proof of the Passover, Chariot Wheels Found in Red Sea

How gratifying to find that technology helps to prove the “miracles” of our religious histories?
“And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.” (Exodus 14:21)
The story of “Exodus” is the story of Passover—God sent the “7 plagues” upon Egypt and Moses led the Jews out of their years of slavery by parting and then crossing the Red Sea. The waves were then said to have crashed in on the pharaoh’s soldiers’ chariots who were in pursuit.
“And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.” (Exodus 14:28)
Proof of the miracle of Passover is not a popular topic in Muslim countries of the Middle East.
Scuba divers found chariot wheels caked and crusted in the coral of the Red Sea. The archeologists who found them, Ron and Mary Nell Wyatt, were even jailed by for a time by Egyptian authorities due to the controversy over their excavations.
Ron Wyatt died in 1999, a man who devoted his life to Biblical explorations and ably explained his findings many times over, and over again.
As he said, those who took issue with his artifacts were just jealous that they hadn’t found them first.
