The Red Sea Crossing
Question: When is a chariot wheel not considered a chariot wheel?
Answer: When the chariot wheel is found at the bottom of the Red Sea.
The chariot wheel in the photograph below, was taken in the waters east of Nuweiba in the Gulf of Aqaba.
This wheel was first photographed by Ron Wyatt. It has since been photographed by others and confirmed. (See The Exodus Case, Dr. Lennart Moller, Scandinavia Publishing House, 2002, p.211.) When Ron showed the photograph to the head of the Department of Antiquities of Egypt, it was his opinion the golden chariot wheel would have been part of the chariot of the Pharaoh or of the High Priest.
Consider the following passage. "Now it came to pass, in the morning watch, that the Lord looked down upon the army of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and cloud, and He troubled the army of the Egyptians. And He took off their chariot wheels, so that they drove them with difficulty; and the Egyptians said, "Let us flee from the face of Israel, for the Lord fights for them against the Egyptians." Then the Lord said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over the sea, that the waters may come back upon the Egyptians, on their chariots, and on their horsemen." And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and when the morning appeared, the sea returned to its full depth, while the Egyptians were fleeing into it. So the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. Then the waters returned and covered the chariots, the horsemen, and all the army of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them. Not so much as one of them remained." (Exodus 14:24-28)
We now know it must have been the chariot wheel of the High Priest as the Sinai Inscriptions reveal that pharaoh rode a horse on that fateful night.
Forster, Charles, The One Primeval Language Traced Experimentally Through Ancient Inscriptions (Richard Bentley, London, 1852), pp. 79-110.
The song of Moses now comes into clear focus.
"I will sing to the Lord, For He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea!" (Exodus 15:1)
The fact that Pharaoh died during this event is confirmed in the secular record and can be read in the section: "The Ten Plagues of Egypt" in the subheading: "The el-Arish Shrine".

The Wadi Watir (can be seen on the image below) empties at Nuweiba which was an excellent location for the Children of Israel to gather in preparation for the momentus event: "The Red Sea Crossing".
