The location of the Garden of Eden has been a well kept secret until now. Many scholars have tried to locate the Garden of Eden and have failed. It was always right there just out of their reach. Like the proverbial tree, they couldn't see it because the forest was in the way.

Join me now as I unveil the exact location of the Garden of Eden.

Clues in the Book of Jubilees

While researching the Book of Jubilees, I came across an amazing description of the division of land by the sons of Noah that pinpoints the location of the Garden of Eden. While Ham, Japeth, and Shem were dividing up the known world for ownership after the flood, they describe Shem's portion of land which is referred to as the middle section.

The land of Shem is an area that we can well identify today. It is located east of the Suez Canal, south of Turkey, and west of Iran. There are two important items to consider in using this document of antiquity as a reference point for locating the garden of Eden.

The first is the actual description of the location of the Garden of Eden, and the second is an incredible description of the Sinai Peninsula that could only have been seen from about 2,000 feet over the Red Sea.

"And there came out of the lot for Shem the middle of the earth, which he and his children should have as an inheritance for the generations unto eternity, from the middle of the Mountain Rafu from the exit of the water of the river Tina, and his portion goes toward the west through the midst of this river, and they go until they approach to the abyss of the waters out of which comes this river, and this river empties and pours its waters into the sea Miot (Persian Gulf), and this river goes into the great sea (Arabian Sea): all that is toward the north of this is Japhet's, and all that is to the direction of the south is Shem's."

"And it reaches until it comes to Karaso, which is in the bosom of the tongue (Sinai Peninsula) which looks toward the south."

"And his portion reaches unto the great sea (Mediterranean Sea), and reaches straight until it approaches the west of the tongue which looks toward the south; for the sea is called the tongue of the Egyptian Sea (Red Sea)." Jubilees 8:10-12.

Isn't it interesting that the Sinai Peninsula looks like a tongue from space. See the map of the Tongue.

There is no way that they could have known this when this Book was written. They didn't have satellite photos from space then. In fact, this knowledge is impossible based on the technology of its day. There is no earthly explanation for this description. Is this evidence of angelic mapping?

"And it turns from there toward the south, toward the mouth of the great sea (Arabian Sea) in the shore of the waters and proceeds toward Arabia and Ophra, and it proceeds until it reaches to the water of the River Gejon (Nile), along the shore of this same river." Jubilees 8:13.

This means east of the river Nile to include the Red Sea going south to the Gulf of Adin. Is Adin a modernization of the word Eden?

"And it proceeds toward the north until it approaches the Garden of Eden, and toward the south thereof to the south, and from the east of the whole land of Eden, and toward the whole east , and it turns to the east, and proceeds until it approaches toward the east of the hills whose name is Rafa, and it descends toward the border of the outlet of the water of the river Tina." Jubilees 8:14

Please notice that this pinpoints the Garden of Eden as being north or northwest of the land of Shem and west of the Sinai Peninsula. The territory of Shem runs from the east of Eden to the west of Iran.

The most obvious conclusion is that the Garden of Eden was located in the Delta of the Nile River in the land of Goshen in Egypt. See the map of the Garden of Eden.

The Book of Jubilees was written as a commentary to train Rabbis. It is know as a haggadic text. Parts of it are found in the Mishna. It is a commentary on the Book of Genesis, the Book of Exodus, and the 31st Chapter of the Book of Deuteronomy.

The author of the Book is unknown, but the style of the writing is commonly considered that it is from the Midrashin or a representative example of the Targum in the spirit of New Testament Judaism. Scholars advocate a Samaritan origin, and others an Essene, another claiming that it arose in the Egyptian Diaspora, but all agree as to this thoroughly Jewish origin and, in general, its representative character. In other words, it is authentic.

The Exact Location by Triangulation

There is another amazing key to this Book that reveals the exact location of the Garden of Eden to the exact degree.

"And he (Shem) knew that the Garden of Eden is the Holy of Hollies, and the dwelling place of the Lord, and Mount Sinai, the center of the desert, and Mount Zion, the center of the navel of the earth, these three, opposite one another, were created as sanctuaries." Jubilees 8:17.

The Garden of Eden, Mt. Sinai, and Mt. Zion are referred to here as sanctuaries--places of refuge for God's people established by God. In the garden, God placed Adam and Eve. Mt. Sinai was the place of refuge for Moses. Mt. Zion is the place of refuge for all God's people today.

I struggled on this idea of the three places being opposite one another. I considered every combinations: a straight line, a circle, and even a cross.

I tried all the combinations and made an exciting discovery. Mt. Zion is Jerusalem and is often referred to by Jewish writers as the 'naval of the world'. Mt Sinai is in the south of the Sinai Peninsula and it is in the center of the desert at the end of the triangular tip of the tongue.

I drew a straight line from Mt. Sinai to Mt. Zion and measured the distance. I then calculated and drew a triangulation of that line forming an equilateral triangle to the west or away from the Land of Shem. I got the idea from my sons's girlfriend, Ness. They were home visiting for the weekend from Southeastern (Assemblies of God) College in Lakeland Florida. She recommended that I try an equilateral triangle. The equilateral triangle worked perfectly. The points intersected at '32 East by 32' North. Exactly in the Land of Goshen. See the maps.

This is the district of Rameses the 1st which in Egyptian means city of RA, which is in the area of modern day Al Mansura. The same city where Moses was born. The very name of Moses is Egyptian and it is not Hebrew at all. Moses name means son of RA in ancient Egyptian. It is also the name of the Tree of Life that was located in the very center of the Garden of Eden. The name Moses does not translate in Hebrew correctly.

An interesting side bar here is that when Joseph was given the land in Egypt he was given this very same area.

"And Joseph situated his father and his brothers, and gave them a possession in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the district of Rameses, as Pharaoh had commanded." Genesis 47:11.

The Book of Jubilees goes on to describe the area that Ham received in the division of lands. This description also indicates that the Garden of Eden was west of the Nile River.

"And for Ham came out as the second portion, beyond the Gejon (Nile), toward the south, to the right of the garden, and it proceeds to all the fire mountains (Africa), and goes toward the west to the sea of Atil (Atlantic Ocean), and goes west until it reaches the sea of Mauk (Probably the Atlantic Ocean south of the Equator and west of Angola, Africa), the one of which everything descends that is destroyed (Cape of Good Hope, Africa)."

"And it proceeds to the north to the shore of Gadil and goes to the west of the water of the sea until it approaches the river Gejon, and the river Gejon goes until it approaches to the right of the Garden of Eden, and this land is the land which came forth for Ham as the portion he shall retain for himself and the children of his generations forever." Jubilees 8:20-21.

This is another unexplainable geographic description of the earth that the technology of their day could not support. How did they do this? Is this more evidence of angelic mapping?

Notice that the Garden of Eden is described as being located to the west of the Nile river and the land of Ham as being located to the right of the Garden.

This is conclusive evidence for the location of the Garden of Eden being located in Egypt.

Finally, in Genesis, Chapter 3, verse 24, we are told the story of the exit of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden.

"So he drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the Garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the Tree of Life (RA)."

Notice that Adam and Eve were sent east out of the Garden. Now if they were coming out of the land of Goshen, then the first major river that they would have encountered that could sustain life or a whole civilization would have been the Eurphates and the Tigris--the cradle of civilization. This makes sense.

If they were coming out of Iraq, as Calvin and some scholars wrongly suggest, they would have gone east to Iran or India. It doesn't make sense that they would have settled over the Garden of Eden, specially having been sent out and away from it.

It makes better scholarship to locate the Garden of Eden in Egypt and the cradle of civilization in Iraq to the east of the Garden of Eden where it rightfully belongs at the site of Edinu.

The discovery of the location of the Garden of Eden also points to another significant and interesting fact. The Garden is located at '32 East by '32 North exactly in the center of the land mass of the world. See the map of the World.
