Reading from another topic, about someone "blowing a trumpet " for "Hebrews", i decided to look up the places the Israelites wandered through during their 40 years of "wandering " in the desert.

So here is the list

Quote

After departing from – Ramesses, they
  • camped in Soccoth
  • came into Etham
  • came over against Phihahiroth(camped before Magdalum)
  • camped in Mara
  • came into Elim
  • pitched their tents by the Red Sea
  • camped in the desert of Sin (????)
  • came to Daphca
  • camped in Alus
  • pitched their tents in Raphidim
  • camped in the desert of Sinai
  • came to the graves of lust (??)
  • camped in Haseroth
  • came to Rethma
  • camped in Remmomphares
  • came to Lebna
  • camped in Ressa
  • came to Ceelatha
  • camped in the mountain Sepher
  • came to Arada
  • camped in Maceloth
  • came to Thahath
  • camped in Thare
  • pitched their tents in Methca
  • camped in Hesmona
  • came to Moseroth
  • camped in Benejaacan
  • came to mount Gadgad
  • camped in Jetebatha
  • came to Hebrona
  • camped in Asiongaber
  • came into the desert of Sin, which is Cades
  • camped in mount Hor
  • camped in Salmona
  • came to Phunon
  • camped in Oboth
  • came to Ijeabarim
  • pitched their tents in Dibongab
  • camped in Helmondeblathaim
  • came to the mountains of Abarim
  • camped from Bethsimoth
  • even to Ablesatim in the plains of the Moabites,

The above is from From the Douay Rheimes Bible, Numbers Chapter 33.

No offense meant from any religious view point, even to Christians or Jews.I am just curious.

The Bedouins are bloody much faster than these Wandering Jews (pun intended on the "wandering Jew")
  • whats the difference between "desert of Sin (7)", desert of Sinai (11)", and desert of Sin/Cades (32)
  • Has any of these 42 places been identified with actual geographical places? places like desert of sin, graves of lust are sort of dubious to locate on a map.
  • Did they actually cross over the red sea? i read somewhere that the body of water they did cross over was some bay or lagoon sort of water body which was shallow during low tides and it was at this moment they crossed over.

I have cooked you a meal, cut it into little pieces, and set it before you  but I'm not going to chew it for you
And no one is forcing you to eat it. If you dont want it then dont eat it.

I am not a big believer in science by combat.
Arguing doesn't establish who is right. Arguing only establishes who is the better arguer.

Ah, even at the risk that some take offense: It never happened that way.

The most accurate explanation I have found was by Finkelstein and Silberman, The Bible Unearthed, Touchstone, 2001. They try to reconstruct the story from the archeological point of view, and well, it is not very flattering for either Judaism or any of its following sects/religions.
