One of the influential mysteries of all times is that Moses parted the Red Sea that the Israelites pass through it. Of course that kind of strength which allows someone to get parted the sea seems impossible at first appearance. But when there is a will of God it’s maybe the easiest thing to do.
God chooses Moses to lead the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt and into the land of Canaan, which God has promised to them. The Egyptian pharaoh, who previously said the opposite, agrees to let them go, and they travel from Ramesses to Succoth and then to Etham on the edge of the desert, led by a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. There God tells Moses to turn back and camp by the sea at Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, directly opposite Baal-zephon.
God causes the pharaoh to pursue the Israelites with chariots, and he overtakes them at Pi-hahiroth. When the Israelites see the Egyptian army they are afraid, but the pillar of fire and the cloud separates the Israelites and the Egyptians. At God's command, Moses holds his staff out over the water, and throughout the night a strong east wind divides the sea, and the Israelites pass through with a wall of water on either side. The Egyptians pursue, but at daybreak God clogs their chariot-wheels and throws them into a panic, and with the return of the water, the pharaoh and his entire army are destroyed. When the Israelites see the power of God, they put their faith in God and in Moses, and sing a song of praise to the Lord for the crossing of the sea and the destruction of their enemies.
Although no archaeological evidence has been found that confirms the crossing of the Red Sea ever took place said Zahi Hawass, an Egyptian archaeologist: "Really, it’s a myth... Sometimes as archaeologists we have to say that never happened because there is no historical evidence” but this happening is widely known.
