    I (Deb) would prefer these categories to be simply named “near-Egypt” and “far-from-Egypt”. There is nothing specifically “Hebrew” about theories that place the crossing sites in the Gulf of Aqaba, and, for that matter, nothing specifically “Egyptian” about theories that place the crossing site in the Suez Isthmus or Gulf (or even along the Med Sea coast). All the Red Sea crossing theories are interpretations of the biblical texts in the light of the geographical realia.
