On arrival at the site Ron found that the peak of the mountain had been burnt with such a severe heat that the granite rock had been turned to obsidium. This is volcanic glass, caused by the burning of granite at such a high heat that it is transformed into a type of glass.
The Saudi archaeologists had said they could estimate the location of the source of heat by the ‘shadow effect’ on the surrounding rocks. They concluded that the heat source was fifty meters above the peak of Mount Sinai. Ron Wyatt wondered if this burned, blackened peak could be caused by God’s Presence, as the Lord descended on Mount Sinai.
Exodus 19:18: “Now Mount Sinai was completely in smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire. Its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked greatly” NKJV.
Deuteronomy 5:23: “So it was, when you heard the voice from the midst of the darkness, while the mountain was burning with fire, that you came near to me, all the heads of your tribes and your elders” NKJV.
