The ruins of Baalbeck, Lebanon is archeological and physical evidence for the biblical accounts of the Book of Joshua. It is evident from examining the mighty stone walls in Baalbeck, Lebanon that the abilities and the wisdom of the patriarchs depicted in the Bible, decreased over time. The stone blocks at the bottom of the wall were mostly megaliths weighing 1000+ tons. There is no modern science that can clearly explain how these massive stone blocks in Baalbeck, Lebanon were moved.   

God commanded Moses to make the

Ark of the Covenant.

  

Exodus 25:10-13

10And they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.

 

11And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round about.

 

12And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four corners thereof; and two rings shall be in the one side of it, and two rings in the other side of it.

 

13And thou shalt make staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold.

 

Details given unto Moses by God to make the Ark of the Covenant

Exodus 25:1-40

 

 1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

 2Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering.

 3And this is the offering which ye shall take of them; gold, and silver, and brass,

 4And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair,

 5And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood,

 6Oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet incense,

 7Onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in the breastplate.

 8And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.

 9According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.

 10And they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.

 11And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round about.

 12And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four corners thereof; and two rings shall be in the one side of it, and two rings in the other side of it.

 13And thou shalt make staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold.

 14And thou shalt put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them.

 15The staves shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall not be taken from it.

 16And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee.

 17And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof.

 18And thou shalt make two cherubims of gold, of beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat.

 19And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end: even of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubims on the two ends thereof.

 20And the cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be.

 21And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.

 22And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.

 23Thou shalt also make a table of shittim wood: two cubits shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.

 24And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make thereto a crown of gold round about.

 25And thou shalt make unto it a border of an hand breadth round about, and thou shalt make a golden crown to the border thereof round about.

 26And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings in the four corners that are on the four feet thereof.

 27Over against the border shall the rings be for places of the staves to bear the table.

 28And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold, that the table may be borne with them.

 29And thou shalt make the dishes thereof, and spoons thereof, and covers thereof, and bowls thereof, to cover withal: of pure gold shalt thou make them.

 30And thou shalt set upon the table shewbread before me alway.

 31And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of the same.

 32And six branches shall come out of the sides of it; three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side:

 33Three bowls made like unto almonds, with a knop and a flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the other branch, with a knop and a flower: so in the six branches that come out of the candlestick.

 34And in the candlesticks shall be four bowls made like unto almonds, with their knops and their flowers.

 35And there shall be a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, according to the six branches that proceed out of the candlestick.

 36Their knops and their branches shall be of the same: all it shall be one beaten work of pure gold.

 37And thou shalt make the seven lamps thereof: and they shall light the lamps thereof, that they may give light over against it.

 38And the tongs thereof, and the snuffdishes thereof, shall be of pure gold.

 39Of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels.

 40And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.

 

 
 

Numbers 13

  1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,  2Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel: of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send a man, every one a ruler among them.  

 17And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said unto them, Get you up this way southward, and go up into the mountain:  

 26And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word unto them, and unto all the congregation, and shewed them the fruit of the land.  27And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it.  28Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there.

 

Numbers 13

 31But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.  32And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.  33And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.

So God punished the Children of Israel

 for failing to obey His command.

 

 

Exodus 16:35

35And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan.

 

Moses and the children were all punished by God to wonder in the wilderness for 40 years

 so that they will humble themselves.

 Deuteronomy 8:2-3

 2And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. 3And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.

 
 

God permitted Moses to climb the high mountain Nebo, to one of the highest

peaks, Pisgah.

 

Deuteronomy 34:1-5

 1And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto the mountain of Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, that is over against Jericho. And the LORD shewed him all the land of Gilead, unto Dan,  2And all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim, and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah, unto the utmost sea,  3And the south, and the plain of the valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees, unto Zoar.  4And the LORD said unto him, This is the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither.  5So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD.

 
 

At The Jordan River

about 40 years after the Exodus

Joshua 3:13-14

13And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the LORD, the LORD of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, that the waters of Jordan shall be cut off from the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand upon an heap.

 14And it came to pass, when the people removed from their tents, to pass over Jordan, and the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people;

 

Joshua 3:13

NIV

And as soon as the priests who carry the ark of the LORD—the Lord of all the earth—set foot in the Jordan, its waters flowing downstream will be cut off and stand up in a heap.

KJV

 

And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the LORD, the LORD of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, that the waters of Jordan shall be cut off from the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand upon an heap.

 

       

 

Joshua 3:13

...that the waters of Jordan shall be cut off from the waters that come down from above; 

and they shall stand upon an heap... 

so that the Children of Israel may cross over on dry land 

       

 

 

 

 

 

       

 

To this date there is no modern science that can clearly explain how the massive stone blocks in the biblical land of Baalbeck, Lebanon were handled and moved. Stone blocks weighing 1000+ tons challenges all modern day construction tools that are available to advanced teams of heavy construction engineers. These teams are capable of handling only a fraction of the weight of many of the blocks of Lebanon.
