After the original tables of stone containing the Ten Commandments written by the finger of God were broken, Moses was told to be ready and “come up in the morning to Mount Sinai.”
Be ready by the morning, and come up in the morning to Mount Sinai, and present yourself there to me on the top of the mountain. (Exodus 34:2 ESV)
The Christian martyr Stephen reminded his audience that Moses received living oracles on Mount Sinai.
He received living oracles to give to us. (Acts 7:38 ESV)
Perhaps this is one of the reasons so many persons put forth the effort to approach the top of a mountain presumed to be Mount Sinai.
We began telling you about Michael’s trek to the top of the mountain on the morning of January 26, 2011. As he approached the top of the 7,519 feet high Jebel Musa he recorded several instances of snow.
One can never be sure about weather conditions. Reader Beverly Sansom left this comment yesterday:
Yes, we climbed the same mountain in mid-March 2011. Our view of the sunrise was but a sliver due to clouds, but the mountain grandeur was breathtaking. At the top were other Christians singing “How Great Thou Art” in a foreign language. We joined in!
Michael had a good morning from the perspective of a photographer. Here is one of his sunrise photos.
Thanks to Michael for sharing these photos with our readers.
