The Garden of Eden
The Sinai Tongue
Triangulation of the
The Center of the World
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.
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
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
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
There is another amazing key to this Book
that reveals the exact location of the Garden of Eden to the exact
"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
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
"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
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
"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
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
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 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
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
