How did the Israelites cross the Red Sea in a night while running from the Egyptians?

Good question.

Here’s what our biblical consultants say about how the Israelites crossed the Red Sea in a night while running from the Egyptians.

“Red Sea” was apparently a translation error from the days when scholars were rendering the Bible into English for King James I.

The original Hebrew called it a “sea of reeds,” which historians say probably refers not to the Red Sea, but to a swamp of lakes and marshes.

Makes more sense now.
