Mt. Sinai Poster - "The Backside of the Desert" (24x36)
By Andrew Jones
We are told in the Bible that Mount Sinai was located on the backside (“west side” per ESV) of the desert or wilderness (Exodus 3:1). This description fits perfectly to what we find on the ground around Jabal al-Lawz. The mountain range is on the western (backside) edge of a large wilderness region.
This desert with its red sand dunes and tall sandstone mesas is called the Hisma Desert today. In this beautiful high desert region is found an ancient trade route to the north.
After the Israelites had camped at Mount Sinai for 11 months they departed and went through this “great and terrible wilderness” (Deuteronomy 1:19) on their journey north to the Promised Land. As Moses wrote, “He knows your trudging through this great wilderness. These forty years the Lord your God has been with you; you have lacked nothing.” (Deuteronomy 2:7)
