A former FBI trained police investigator and SWAT team member Bob Cornuke is now a Biblical investigator, international explorer, and author of eleven books. He has participated in over seventy-three expeditions around the world searching for lost locations described in the Bible. These journeys include searching for the real Mount Sinai in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, exploring in Turkey along with Apollo Fifteen Astronaut Jim Irwin for the remains of Noah’s ark, following ancient Assyrian and Babylonian flood accounts in Iran and tracking the Ark of the Covenant from Israel, to Egypt and across the Ethiopian highlands.
Off the coast of Malta his research team found the probable location of Paul’s shipwreck-more specifically the accounting of all four anchors as described in Acts 27. His latest extensive research efforts have been in Israel in search of the true Temple site and the precise location of Christ’s crucifixion.
He speaks to the Global News Alliance about how his expedition to find the real location of Mount Sinai is being featured in a Hollywood blockbuster.
“I’ve been on nine searches, expeditions looking for Noah’s Ark. I’ve looked for the real Mount Sinai… I’ve looked for the crossing site of the Red Sea, where the fleeing Hebrews went being chased by Pharoah when they went to the Red Sea. I’ve searched for the Ark of the Covenant in Ethiopia on 22 trips look for the Ark of the Covenant.
I try to show people the evidence that these ancient historical events are real and true and we can rely on the Bible and every word of the Bible from start to finish. We can rely on the Bible and if we do so we can have the faith of a child and the world will be changed and we can move mountains with that kind of faith.”
Bob is currently president of the Bible Archaeology Search and Exploration (BASE) Institute located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. For two seasons he hosted the Gutsy Christianity cable television show on the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) network. He has been invited by the Presidents staff to conduct a Bible study at the White House under George W. Bush. He earned a Ph.D. in Bible and Theology from Louisiana Baptist University and has lectured nationally and internationally to over a thousand audiences.
