Modern Documentaries There seems to be a rash of video documentaries about finding the location of the Red Sea crossing by the Israelites in the story depicted in the book of Exodus. With the understanding that "the Red Sea" is really called the "Sea of Reeds," is there any pointed location according to the Hebrew verbage?
Historically, some cartographers and commentators have located it up north in the Nile Delta where "reeds" were abundant (and the main source of papyrus). The north route would fit the statement that God did not want the Israelites to confront the Egyptian forts near there on the way to Canaan.
Others maintain that the crossing was much farther south across the southwestern arm of the modern Sinai peninsula. And that the journeyings of Israel were amidst the barren Sinai Peninsula landscape.
Still others say the Bible teaches that the crossing was on the northeastern arm of the Red Sea across into Midian (Arabia). And that the mountain of the Lord was in Midian.
Which fits the crossing story in the ancient Hebrew place names mentioned in Exodus?
