Home Forums Location of Mount Sinai The distance from Kadesh Barnea Reply To: The distance from Kadesh Barnea

    To reiterate the problem:

    Kadesh was firmly identified over a century ago at Ayn Qudayrat in the Northern Sinai. Mount Sinai-Horeb, however, has not been firmly identified and the debate over its location continues. The Deuteronomy review seems to specify an 11-day distance between Kadesh and Sinai-Horeb which measure should narrow the choice of mountains considerably. But the Numbers narrative indicates a lesser distance of 6 days’ journey while the Numbers itinerary indicates a greater distance involving 21 days (which may, of course, not be a direct route).
